GH6 Gaoler (more and bigger pics!)Obsidian 07-28-2008

I wanted to show some more and bigger pics of the Gaoler.Rolleyes

When you start forming a concept in your mind it's always the question if you can translate it well to reality. In this case it really did and so I am really pleased with the end result.

The paintjob was done quicker than usual but I'm pretty sattisfied. Also the pics are taken with a cam not used before but my gf did a really good job Imho! Thanks hun!!!Takes Hat offTongue

As I have already told you so many times before: "It's brilliant". And you did get my vote Wink

The base rocks Happy and the dwarf is just so perfect. He is so classic and would fit in with any 3rd ed. CD army -  I just love him!

Btw: Would really like to know how you did it - and don't you have any WIP-pics to show - too?

And are those horns from the WFB Chaos Champion?

It's perfect.  I can't think of a single thing about it that could be improved.

Firstly Obsidian, congrats on coming so close to the gold in such a hard fought comp. Two things, is the goblinoid on the base a self sculpt? second, how did you make/what did you use for the whip?

RE: GH6 Gaoler (more and bigger pics!)Obsidian 07-29-2008

Thanks all! Cheers!:

@Clam: sorry, no wip pics as I had to hurry him just a bit. Mostly he's re-sculpted. And yes, those are the WFB Chaos Champion horns! ^^

@Al-Hashut: The Gnoblar is half original, half sculpt. The head and fur plus the arms are from a metal Gnoblar I had lying around the rest is GS. The whip is from a Beastmen character called Khazrakh. Was surprised (and happy!) no one else thought of that!Tongue

The contest did give me inspiration to start a whole warband, which I will be doing work on every now and then. First I've got more important projects lying around! Wink

he looks very strong. physically. like he could smoosh anyone who tried to escape his jail. Tongue

but seriously, the paint job is great. Most everyone I discussed the contest with were blown away by the paint job. It's great Obs (PS - give your gf a kiss for taking such great pics Wink)

I really like the creativity of the guy hiding under the rock/foot. hehe n.n

the little figure in front of his feet - what is it? and where is it from?
- However I'll like to say, that it is a great conversion - I like the use of the (I quess) chaos helm Happy
It really inspired me to make a character with horns and still keep up the mask theme of my army Cheers!

Again thanks all! Cheers!:

As said before the Gnoblar is half original and half sculpt. I found it in my bitzbox somewhere, so honestly I can't tell you where it was from originally.

@Sojourn: already did that but will do so again! Wink

RE: GH6 Gaoler (more and bigger pics!)Obsidian 12-24-2008

-Bumpity bump-

Decided to put this guy on cmon but need some help I think...

Is the fig really only worth a 6.6? Not that I let Cmon scores go too much to my head but I do think it's a bit low-ish.

Ah well if you want, please vote and leave a reply:

RE: GH6 Gaoler (more and bigger pics!)GRNDL 12-24-2008

I've found the reviewers on CMON are incredibly picky and it might be due to the photographs. I've posted up a lot of my models and while I've gotten two models over 8 in the votes, there are a few models which are comparable in terms of painting quality (in my opinion) and they've been voted down to around 5 or low 6's.  Also, conversions rarely get any extra kudos or brownie point votes as we might get in the GH - its all down to the paint job, I think.

It might be because the site encourages people to be tough - like a Golden Daemon judge. That being said, if you get a high score, you can rest easy knowing that you've earned it!!

  Look on the bright side, your model won a SH!! Happy

RE: GH6 Gaoler (more and bigger pics!)Obsidian 12-25-2008

Come over to Holland and I'll buy you a few rounds Kera! Cheers!:

I think you're right GRNDL. When Cmon first started it was a nice place to get good tips and critique but these days it's just a bunch of guys joking around a lot and taking the mickey out of everyone/everything. I posted the Gaoler on the forums there as well and was honestly happy a painter who's work I like alot responded positively! That means more to me than the grade I got on the model itself!!!

On the downside I also got this remark:

''THE most horrible sculpts ever.... Chaos Dwarfs''

What the heck does that got to do with this 80% resculpted piece?! Unsure


In the new year I'll start a blog in which I'll cover a whole warband. Alreadt started on the second Gaoler! Happy

RE: GH6 Gaoler (more and bigger pics!)cornixt 12-25-2008

Some people would give it a low score just for being a Chaos Dwarf, and not because they don't like it but because they follow the general dislike that many people have for the bighats. It's rather silly really.


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

Thanks mate but I'm perfectly fine if you give it the grade YOU think it deserves.

But I don't mind 10's of course! Tongue
