Greetings brave Dwarfs,

At the moment i`m busy with building my Dwarf throng and i wanted to show some pictures from them happy.gif , pictures are`nt great and didnt highlight much yet. Highlights are in training and used it on a master engineer / bolt thrower / grudge thrower already but dont have a picture from that yet. Some pictures are from same models to get a better view from it.

That's a wicked army of yours smile.gif How many points is it?

Try giving the gold parts a wash to give them some more depth, btw! Really quick and makes for a huge difference smile.gif

A quick tip on 2h weapon warriors - use 'em in small units of 10-12 and give enemy flanks a kickin' while your larger regiments take (and hold) the charge! Works wonders... Ah, but that's for another forum section maybe smile.gif

Oh, my avatar decided to change back? Strange, I had another one previously. Yeah, you're right there.
At the moment, I use two ways to paint blonde beards: first sunburst yellow, then badab black wash, then again sunburst yellow followed by a 50/50 sunburst yellow and skull white highlight.

The other one was .. let me try to remember .. I believe a 50/50 mix of brown and yellow as first layer, then sunburst yellow, then bleached bone and possibly then a 50/50 bleached bone and skull white highlight. I didn't do that one for a while.

Check out 'Painting with Perv', that's a great guide which also describes a way to paint blonde. Hold on, I'll get a link for you ...

here you go:

I like your painting skills. Not really a colour scheme that apeals to me, but variety between different armies makes for more interesting games. Best of luck getting better photo's, look forward to seeing them.

Hey Mick tongue.gif Im Mick too... just Mick tho ...

Nice job so far it seems or from what i can see your pictures come up pretty blurry you might wanna check out one of those photography guides on CMON a few simple things can really improve your photo quality, but from what I can see your armies coming along great one thing I might suggest for more definition with the models is using an ink like brown over the whole model and then if you want you can highlight over that just using the same base colors for a simple and quick way to paint your troops and have them looking good you might be able to use the new washes for the same effect im not sure tho as I haven't used any yet dippings another easy and effective way to have a good looking army painted fairly quickly.

As for blond beards I go from my black undercoat to cathan brown running the brush flat over the beard so it covers it but leaves black in the crevices and then iyaden darksun same technique but abit lighter and if you wanted you could add bleached bone to the mix do it again to make it a bit lighter and then even another much lighter coat of just bleached bone but I usualy just take it up to iyaden.

Good luck with the army ill be checking in wink.gif

p.s.Check out my blog some time if you wanna see my dwarfs:D.

I just use mate`s camera for big parts and use my own camera to hold it up to date so you atleast have something to look at happy.gif . And yes its great weather here, kinda stupid to paint instead of drinking water the whole day heat.gif but have to do it when i want lord and longbeards done before i go on holiday cool.gif .
