Some WIP going on with my dwarf army...looks like this year will be the year of the DWARF.
These miniatures by Avatars of Warare a delight to paint. If you don't know who Felix Paniagua is then please take some time to check his range of miniatures. Felix Paniagua sculpted some of the most iconic dwarfsfrom the former Warhammer Fantasy universe.
In my honest opinion these miniatures are the best range of dwarf rangers in the 28mm range market.
For the unit I always had in mind a unit of rangers patrolling the forest near the dwarf fortress. That is why there are some orc skulls here and there. These bad boys are clearing the scum from their territory one orc at a time.
I hope you like it and as alwyays please be welcome to leave any feedback in the comment section.
3 months with no WIP pictures on the blog...shame on me!!!
Here you can see my take on the Abyssal Warlord bust byScale 75. This miniature is a must for anybody that is interested on understanding volumes. The bust is massive and will give you plenty of room to experiment with pretty much anything you want to try.
This time I wanted to experiment on SPECIFIC POINTS ...As you can tell I failed miserably in some of the points(I do not think I achieved a white painted like plate armour) and achieved a just OK result in some others, but guess what!? This is the whole point of this, trying different things, learning something new and having fun in the way.
I took a nice little break from miniature painting after The white dwarf. And I thought that it would be amazing to attack some of the members of the infamous list that I prepared some years ago with all the majority of the miniatures that have been waiting to be painted for ages.
This bust sculpted by Alfonso Giraldes for Scale 75is a monstruosity, as big as my fist and the detail is amazing. Alfonso had been a commercial painter for ages and when he designed this piece for sure that he knew what to offer to all the painters out there: VOLUMES and TEXTURES. It is a really niece piece because you have the round and cilinder like shoulder pads, a nice and big bold head that allows testing skin tones, fur and metal alike.
In this miniature I would like to set here some of the things I'd like to explore and try to further my understanding of colour:
White like armour
Iron rust beneath white painted plate.
Subtle red osl underneath figure
Purple deep eyes
Some eye effect on the chest and shoulder armour plates
Lets see what we get at the end, but certainly what I love about this hobby is the learning process, trial and error.
Picture the legendary Gotrek Gurnisson, side by side next toJosef Bugmanboth being the dwarf shield bearers of non other than Grombrindal, the legendary White dwarf. That is going to be epic...so whoelse better to be my general army than them!?
