This one...

But yours works better, and looking at it is surely a resculpt of the unit leader?!

I will have to take a detailed side-by-side look. They're at least very similar, same pose, aesthetics, etc. Much like the one you posted, which looks like an alternate trooper. I'll have to keep an eye out for one or two of him.

023 I know this might be much to ask but can you please tell me about the colours you used on the plumage of the owl griff and how you went about painting it as I love the scheme lots and would like to copy it for a griffon I have... :blush:

I'm not sure how much I can help, but I will try. I painted it a little more like a 2d painting or larger toy. I started with a light tan base coat (craft store paint - not sure which one, but I think it was a "light khaki") on the whole thing. Then using that same base color and regular white paint, I did a second coat of paint that used some wet-blending, some "overbrushing" of mixed paint (sort of like drybrushing, but not so dry and grainy) and partially (like most of the underside of the wings) just plain old "paint it all." Later I used washes in a style like wet-in-wet watercolor painting. I started with a custom mix of acrylic ink, water and matte medium, but also brushed into the still-wet wash with a few GW washes (I think either Delvan Mud or Earthshade, maybe both) as well as some of the original ink mix with a tiny bit of India Ink mixed for the darkest parts.

This pic is right after the wash(es) dried, but before I added any of the detail. I ended up not needing to do much highlighting after this.

The black accents were just painted on with thin black paint. Not quite a wash, but thin enough that it did end up creating some highlights on its own. I did go back and add some highlights with black mixed with a medium grey.

Owlgryph's seem better than griffons, would they be nocturnal?

Hadn't thought of that, but now that you mention it, night raids seem like a cool idea, as do nigh patrols/defense.

I added one last RP Meier giant to my collection. I was trying to get it before "Big April" ended, but missed out. Still, it didn't take too long to track on down for a reasonable price.

And a shot of the three RP Meier giants together.

...so far. Should I try to get the rest? I think these are some of the best of his giants from that period.

General painting note... I added a thin blue ink wash (Superman style?) to the newest giants hair & beard, and
think it really helped give the black/grey a bit of life and extra punch & contrast!
I'm liking the looks of this. This might just be what finally gets my local group interested.

In Australia, all the posting times look weird.
Heinrich shifts his weight forward to the balls of his feet. "I don't know, Mr. Julian, do we object?" His right hand unconsciously strokes the head of his axe.
Sorry  :icon_redface: Started to replace photographs.

What set is the animal head helmet from. 3rd picture down.
Another choice for the lady. Bretonnian Fay Damsel, remove sword from right hand, and have the chalice out the window for refill.
Sorry, should have said Kickstarter.
"When did that ever stop anyone!" Ragni mutters.

As the eagleeye scrubber said, there are some guys on griffons out there!

You can read more about why I use these models and more pics. Hope you like it!

That steam tank rider is going to hurt himself when he slides down the side of the tank.
Is that Generals on war eagles I spy behind the Coach ?

I have a spare American Bell, as per link, if she is for any use.

No, he will not fall, he's a badass...  :icon_cool: hehehe
Yes they are, pics below!
Thanks for the link, but I prefer a Citadel model on this specifical case, and, as Warlord says, Belladona seems to be suitable on that matter.

Is that door on a working hinge?

Would the DoW Belladonna model work?

No, in fact is the rear door f the Black Coach!
Yes she will. Pep (Drakenhof), has this model. But now he's working on Naggaroth, so, I will have to sit and wait for him. And for her. Carolina Herrera.

Great painting. The colors look so deep and rich.

Thanks Elswood, but this is an ancient pic! look at the page 12  :icon_wink:
