hey there, i've been working on my chaos dwarfs for around 2 months now, however i had a burst of motivation about a week ago and have actually managed to get a unit finished, so i wondered what you all thought.

its fairly obvious who i have taken my insperation from and i in no way claim any of there ideas to be mine.





oh and please ignore the hidious movement tray, they will get a proper one when i have the time lol

peace out

You need to give them more colour. Red and grey/metal colours isnt enough. Unless you are going for the 'Nothing can be made from wood' colour scheme i suggest adding in some brown to weapon handles and some gold for decorations etc. At the moment the beards are blending with the weapons a bit much and this gives it a bit of an unfinished look. Apart from that, these are some good conversions. The tusks are cool.

A beautiful start! Now slap on some unit markings and by the great Horns of Hashut, please put some sand or earth on the bases! These are not Rackham miniatures after all. Wink

But anyway, the noses, the beards, the tusks... everything is there. A good attitude! Have a slave. Cheers!

A most excellent start!  Love the sculpting work on the tusks and beard!  Well done.

Like Pyro said, some more colour and some basing will take these guys to the next level!

Can's wait to see more!

Looking good.  A bit of bronze/gold or even a light silver would add a bit more depth.  You can also use colour washes on the metallics to add some colour.


There's a lot more in the wiki than you think, check out the wiki contents

The conversions look great to me!  They are very red, but whatever makes you happy is cool with me.  As per Ishkur tho, they need finished bases imo.

I'm struggling with shading like you've done on the beards.

How did you go about it??

Is it best dry brushed?? very VERy carefully just painting the raised part of beard??

RE: first copmpleted unitMalificant 03-01-2008

as far as painting lava goes, i use the reaper fire triad.  bright red for the base coat, and the glow on the rocks(just drybrush it on the rocks), phoenix red on top of the bright red, leaving the edges closest to the rock visible, and fire orange ontop of that, leaving a ring of phoenix red around the bright red.

RE: first copmpleted unitAbyss 03-01-2008

@craigisnutter: no all do is just basecoat the beards black and then drybrush them fortress gray, its important to make sure the indentations in the beard are deep enough otherwise the drybrushing wont look as effective.

oh and here are the pictures of thos lava bases i was talking about, only got one painted up so far:

The lava looks really good! I'm having problems getting the colours hot enough, but with base that I do its getting better. Not as good as this though..
