Love it, I actually had found this army via google search. Great Stuff as allways, amazing how good your "Speed Painting" looks!

 

But please come back to Dwarves ;P.

I have a softspot for Beastman armies and your likes great, even if it is dipped! I'm asuming you basecoated the white undercoat before washes?

Whenever I see a nicely painted OOP army I don't have, I always get an urge to look thru Ebay !!! and these are 2 really nice armies. I love your use of colours for both, really makes for a cohesive look. By far an way one of the best dipped armies I've come across.

 

Can I ask where the giant is from ? is it a Citadel 80's model ?

 

Also really liking the bases, compared to the dwarf bases less flock is way better.

Thanks for the comments, everyone!

 

I have to apologize for being little unclear. The Dark Elf army is dipped (and worked a lot afterwards) but these Beastmen are done with just washes.

 

Alebelly: I just put a colour wash/ink over white and Dark Tone-Umber Shade-floor polish wash on top of that. The furs, for example, were just Sepia Ink + Sepia wash (3:1) over white + the polish mixture.

 

Dazza: The Giant is “Bottle Snortle”: http://www.solegends...ntswd948710.jpg

 

Also, you’re the one who I have to thank a lot as your comments influenced a lot to me getting interested in basing. So I have to give you some credit for the bases ;) I agree they look better than the bases of my dwarfs… which brings me to the Dwarfs...

 

Theatralic: I try to return to the dwarfs eventually. The problem is that after these side projects I’m more confident in painting deeper shades and my painting techniques have, perhaps, improved a bit. The stuff I did a year ago looks a little old-fashioned :P But I love them (and Dwarfs in general) still...

 

I bought some historicals (Ottomans, to be specific) and I intend to use them as counts-as-Empire in Warhammer. I’m not sure how I divide my hobby time with those and the Dwarfs, but I’ve promised to myself that I’ll not buy any more models before these and my dwarfs are finished.

So... you spray white, then wash a flesh tone and a fur colour, then just wash the lot in polish/stain, then pick out teeth etc? Colour me impressed! They look great for what sounds like such a quick and easy process :)

Great looking army! It's amazing what can be achieved with washes. I still enjoy coming back and looking at the Dark Elves, lovely stuff.
