Updated the thread since I've remade the pictures :) so, my Unforged and the cannon "Ärgerlicher Donner" (Angry Thunder). I think they are complete now :)

Awesome grimdark look! Really like the grey accents in his black hair.

Looks good! I like the highlight on the eye of that statue.

A cannon, finally. "Angry thunder". Without the crew yet, but it's just a matter of time :) This cannon technically belongs to the Ironweld Arsenal, but it was produced by our own duardin in our stronghold, and crew was learning in the technical school of our own as well. So it's mostly a part of our duardin army :)

Ha, nicely camouflaged. :)

 

Some tips: thin down your paints and apply more coats then one thick one. That way you get better coverage. :)

Thanks :) good tips, much appreciated! Though I think they are not that thick as I always apply a bit of varnish. But anyway, you are right :)

Try the army painter dark shade dip - easy to use and it usually settles where you need it. Looks like you are at a good starting point. Thanks for sharing

I agree with Hoegaarden. Cannon and crew are neatly painted, but could really benefit from some shading.

 

Slayer is a bit too dark to judge, but the gem seems to look good.

Thanks for tips! I agree that the shades could come in handy. Will try them then later :) and yes, it's only yesterday I realized the natural landscape is the best background!

My advice? Take that cannon an' rub some Oil of Nuln on it!

:D In fact it was covered in some GW wash, not Nuln Oil, but something it was, and then covered in matt varnish. But thanks anyway, sometimes I forget about washes :)

Several statues, presumably from the LotR. Was experimenting with them, not that bad in the end. Planning to use them as the interior of my dwarven fortress.

If you buy the quickshade dip by army painter it will help get you some shading.

Agrax Earthshade or Nuln Oil would also work wonders for you sir, I don’t mean to offend, but I always think people underestimate how much a wash really can do for the miniatures. You might also buy Reikland Fleshshade, or skin tone ink from army painter, to get the flesh parts, but you don’t have to use a flesh wash. Other than a wash, I think they look great! Also the statues you have look nice as well.

“Statues?” The Dwarf stonemason looked up angrily from his work, wiping the sweat from his eye. “Nay lad, these ain’t statues; far too small, these are door stops for the main gate! A proper dwarf statue would be ‘least four times the size!”

They look good, I like the different colours make them look like they’ve been carved from precious rock.

@hoegaarden & Ragnar, it’s a very serious thing to suggest a dwarf might have missed his annual dunkin!

 Aye, they have good base and under coats, sure. Need to try their shades then out!

Agree, I have forgotten them. Thanks both of you, guys ^_^

Thanks! I am quite content with them too. Some of them I will use for my dwarven fortress, and I agree they are quite small - after all, all LotR miniatures are smaller than the WH ones, but not bad either. And I am planning to add also four stockades from the Battle for the Skull Pass :)

My arquebusier brigade. Done before I've acquired the paint set from "Revell", where you have mud, rust and other pigments, so next boys will be certainly better and with a bit of experiment. :) but suffices, and I experimented with matt and glossy varnish, and came to like matt one even more :)

Yeah Matt varnish is much better. Though I spray gloss over the models first so the protective layer, then Matt to get rid of the shine. I do this because the gloss varnish is much stronger than Matt.
