Próximo trabajo Eldar:

Hace relativamente poco tiempo recibí un regalo por parte Dave G, cuyo blog os
recomiendo : http://www.wargamingtradecraft.com/.
El regalo en cuestión es este:

Recibir la miniatura me hizo tanta ilusión que decidí devolver el favor a Dave
enviándole yo una miniatura pintada por mi. La miniatura en cuestión sería un Guardián
eldar de la caja de regimiento.
Todavía no me he puesto a pintarla pero ya se qué quiero hacer con ella, en mi mente
vuelve a estar la imagen grabada, ya solo queda poder materializar dicha imagen en una
miniatura al mismo nivel que yo me imagino.
En realidad el trabajo de la miniatura no será algo enrevesado , sino algo( según mi
opinión) elegante y sobrio. Se trata de probar una gama de color que nunca antes he
utilizado en ninguna miniatura.
La inspiración la he cogido de la gama de colores que empleó un reconocido grafitero
de mi ciudad en una obra que veo en la calle todos los días.

La idea se materializará en lo siguiente:
-Gama melódica de color.
-Rotura de la gama en la base utilizando un color complementario basado en líneas.

Un saludo.

Dave, si me lees tendrás que esperar todavía algún tiempo para ponerme manos a la
obra con la miniatura, por lo menos hasta que termine el sacerdote Sigmar.


Next eldar Job:

Some time ago I got a gift from Dave G, whose blog I recommend you. Here is the
The gift I’m talking about is this:

I was so excited about Dave’s gift that I decided to pay him back painting some simple
miniature. The miniature aforementioned would be an elder guardian from the regiment
I still haven’t started the job but the important thing is that I know what I want to do.
The picture of what I want to reach is clearly drawn in my mind. The only thing left is
bringing the idea to life at the same level that I can see in my head.
In fact, I don’t want it to be complex but a sober elegant job. It is about using a range of
colour that I’ve never used before.
The inspiration came from an urban artist from my town. Every day I see one of his
paintings and I will do my best with the same range of colours.
The idea will come to life this way:
-Melodic range of colours.
-Breaking the range with the complementary colour using lines in the base.


Dave, if you read me, you must wait some time before I start the miniature, at least until
I finish the Sigmar’s priest.


  1. I'm flattered :) And your thoughts intrigue me - I'm very interested to see how these will turn out. I've enjoyed watching your style as I find the softer tones and bolder colours quite striking. I enjoy the urban art I've seen around cities on this side of the pond - from graffiti to larger murals on the side of buildings. Eldar are a great choice as a palette when you're wanting to experiment with ranges of colours and "melodic" is a great way to describe it.

    Do we get to see the progress as it happens, or is this going to be a surprise project? :)

  2. Sorry Dave about writing back so late.

    I'll post some progress as I'm doing it. I'll try to make some conversion work as I want to learn somo about it.
