Blackwaters Sigmarite blog, reloaded!
« on: August 31, 2010, 08:36:54 PM »
Greetings, young travelers.

Well As you probably dont remember, i was active on these forums a couple of years or so ago, and just started up again. I was in the process of making assembeling an army and as i didnt wanna pick a specific province, They are an army made up of fanatics, flaggelants, mecenaries, those who have nothing to lose and so forth, lead by fanatic priests and witchhunters, I guess they were from talaheim originally maybe.. They travel around looking for the first the best scourge to wipe out, whatever it maybe.

Anyways, most of these have been uploaded before, but im gonna upload them again just to have a base for the blog. The pictures turned out pretty horrible, and really screw with the colours etc... i took them with flash but else they wouldnt light up probably.. what do? Anyway, as people probably dont read this anyway, lets get on to some models.

First up: A couple models i just did in the last couple of days to see if i could still paint. Also some experiments with blood

Free Company fighters.. I tried to capture that gothic/religious fanatic sort of feel you know










Some nurgle guys  ::heretic::


I will add some more soon, i just gotta fix something with the camera.

And GODDAMIT those pictures.. they TOTALLY destory the colours and subtely between the highlights etc : /

Comments and so forth very welcome

Why don't you knock it off with those negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change .

How did you paint the black eye?

Yeah the priest aint too happy.. probably raging and trying to figure out who suckerpunched him : P. But damn the fire came out bad.. i will try to get some better pictures of those

I painted the blackeye with a mix of some purple and blue inks in succesive layers.. then highlighted with a some midnightblue+h.purple+ little red i believe.. im not 100% sure though, just grabbed diffrent paints and mixed them in till it looked about right

Anyway some army shots:

Crossbowmen, some of the cooler model ever produced by gw imo.. Again terrible pictures and the standard has been mangeled: /




Swordmen.. Couldnt get a prober focus on the camera though



Knights with lances.. very simple colour scheme but i thought it worked well with the models.. Also the ink is MUCH MUCH less visible in real life


Some quickly painted pistoliers... Might have to convert these into something witchhuntery to fit the fluff, and general coolness factor

Nice!

With your nickname, I was expecting a mercenary army though...

Also, your avatar is a bit freaky.

If you get some more light on your minis (another lamp or so) you'll get a deeper sharpness in your pictures. I really like the conversions as well!  :::cheers:::

Wow!

The most impressive aspect for me is the bloodied weapons; I've seen quite a few attempts (kids blobbing red paint onto swords etc. shudder) but yours are the first that have managed to make it look truly convincing and, quite frankly, cool.  :eusa_clap:

My avatar? Just art..

The blood is quite easy, just need the right mix of purple / red / black colour or inks.. Tamiya colour can be good aswell i heard : ]

Some knight with great weapons.. Tried to give these a more raggedy / sinister look. I really want the army to have that 'fantasy warhammer world' feel.. or whatever : <
See if you can spot which bits are used: ) And in person the ink wash doesnt look as god awful as in these pics : P

Wp dude with a blackeye.. Was sorta an experiment with some very strong contrast in the highlights.



2 bros, of diffrent religion though. I dunno about the skeleton thing on the shield, should i change it?



WIP Witchhunter dude, might serve as a general on foot. The face isnt quite as pinkish in real life, but i still gotta do something to it.
