Title: Chumley Warner's Empire. Metal DG Knights Conversions.
Post by: mr chumley warner on November 25, 2010, 05:02:12 PM
 ::heretic::(October 2012) Slight change up here, i'm adding a catalogue style picture page at the front of the whole PLOG as a sort of reference of my work, and a barometer of how my collecting is going!

Here is the first completed GW Marauder treat unit.

Hi All,

I have created this topic string to contain all my work, rather than posting several thread topics.

Hopefully people may want to bookmark this, as I have a fair few pics from the last 18-24 months since getting back into Warhammer painting.

First unit I painted after a 14 year gap, was these knights, which I re-based today, in a simple coloured sand.

Not the best painting standard, but a solid 10 man sledgehammer in game!

Nordland colours, with an Inner Circle which includes the OOP DOW Gen Sculpt from 1990's..

Just added some more pics.

I got a custom built trophy cabinet maker to build me a glass case to house the army, which is awesome as a showpiece.

Let me know what you think?

Your painting skills, colour tones & style are fantastic, and the fact that you use Mordheim + old OOP stuff makes it even more awesome.  The old models are so full of character that it seems a pity to have to take them out of their display cabinet for a game.  Everything is top notch chumley  :eusa_clap:

===========

Hi The Musician is actually a Greatsword Drummer I think, OOP.

The 2nd from right gunner is an OOP Estalian GW model, they released a few with these SPanish style 16th century helmets.

If you can get hold of them, they are superb models.

Thanks , I used a wash of bleached bone on the horse, and pink on the robes, and a mix of gryphon sepia+vermin brown+bwarf bronze+sunburst yellow for the gold metal, then kept washing the model with light washes, dry each one with a hair dryer, then seal with purity seal, then highlight,

i work really fast, total absorbtion!

I've managed to get hold of the OOP General Rutger model.

I've taken off his lance and customized him using a metal Runefang as shown below.

Also used Green Stuff to remodel the arm having gotten rid of his shield.

I will undercoat when it's dried, and use him as a knightly order with Great Sword!

They do have a certain charm. I've got one disassembled and I need to give it a soak in some acetone to get all the dried superglue off it so that I can reassemble it. I got it second hand and it was not assembled very well and some of the parts had broken apart. You've done an excellent job in assembly. I don't see very many gaps at all.

I undercoated with Skull White followed by a 100% coat of watered down vermin brown,

from there I had my base, eg. I then added boltgun metal to vermin brown for the silver, and washed those base areas, and for the gold / bronze i used dwarf bronze+iyanden darksun,+ gryphon sepia+vermin brown, and washed the gold areas, and for the wood i simply washed with 3 stages,

I need about estimated 10 more hours on this one to finish.

He's a young cocky engineer, out for a raz in the steam tank!

Stolen it from the Master Engineer's garage at night, popped the hatch and is waiting to pop some shots at a cow for target practice :)

I am excited to paint my duelist.  Do you have the one that is kissing his sword too?

Also, do you have this guy magnetized so you can use him on foot as well?

no magnetization, i dont believe in it , like to keep mine in a cabinet mostly for viewing

Looks fantastic!  Great use of a dyanmic, tight-pants model...  Paint looks dynamite, as usual.  If I could offer some minor CC, I might consider another wash/shade around the rivets to make them pop a little more from the similarly gold edging.  Overall, though, an amazing centerpiece!

I have now ordered a Screaming Bell Base, the only GW standard base able to fit a STANK on it seems!

I had to botch the current base together and it looks aweful.

This is still a WIP so I have at least 4 more hours of painting and enhancing highlights , adding hatch, base work, adding flags, converting etc

Well if you install the hatch his ass is covered and therefore the enemy will be less impressed.

I think he stands a bit too far out of the stank....I know I know he wants to show his butt and his mighty cod piece but if you don´t mind destroying the mini I would cut off his legs and place him a bit further down. (Or drill a hole in the stanks top).
Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images
Post by: mr chumley warner on December 16, 2010, 11:07:52 AM
I see from the mechanical diagram they give you with the original box, that you can mount the hatch in either orientation, so i can still have the ass out.

To be frank, I hadn't noticed the ass until people on here mentioned it!

I agree he stands high , but I sort of like it now.

I've finalised my xmas eve , 2500 pts army, see parade ground,

Put the hatch on the front like a russian tank.

Best of both worlds, his codpiece is now armoured and his ass can be admired by his supporting infantry...

Gents I don't mean to state the obvious, but has anyone noticed that these Teutogen Guard models are the goddam best sculpts in the empire portfolio (apart from Valten the Exhaulted on horseback and Ludvig Swarz) !!!

I haven't included the command in the pic as they need to be assembled,

I think a very light coat of white spray, followed by very light coats of paint indeed , the detail is amazing!

Post by: Delthos on January 07, 2011, 09:38:27 PM
I'm really not that big on those miniatures over all, but wow I see what you mean. Those faces and heads on them are outstanding. They are full of character and very expressive. The rest of the sculpting on the miniature is pretty average though, as far as GW miniatures go. I've never really liked the Tuetogen Guard or the White Wolves much. I'm not a big fan of the Space Wolves from 40K either, so I think it's just that imagery they share that I'm not big on.

I like what you've done with his face and hair. It looks really nice. The wolf pelt is a little too gray. I'd look to add some extra color in there. If you take a look at some wolf pictures, you'll see that even gray wolves seldom are solid gray like that. They will have yellows, tans, browns, blacks, and white in there. Right now the armor and pelt look a little too similar for my tastes and something is lost. I supect you aren't finished with the hammer so I'll reserve any comment on it.

3 million years of human evolution, and most of it spent developing new brain neural networks to identify and understand features of the human face

Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images
Post by: Delthos on January 08, 2011, 02:28:44 AM
Alright, that is better now. The bronze edging sets the armor off from the wolf pelt much more now. I still think the pelt is a little too consistent in color, but adding the blue to it has given a little bit of luster that it didn't have before. I look forward to seeing it completed. I can see the Wolf's head needs some work to finish it yet as well.

From your earlier pics, I was going to comment that the hair was dynamite.  I almost like it a little more ruddy than the final polished manes and beards.  That said, it is still extremely well done.  I might add some work to the wolf heads on the shoulders (likely in your plans) to distinguish the various textures and colors on the head - especially around the mouths.  Armor looks fantastic.

As a WIP picture, these definitely show promise.  Congrats, again, on their acquisition, and know that I'm watching for their completion!

Well done!

Both of those warbands were produced by the Specialists Games department, I believe, so they would have had very low numbers produced. They were produced very close to the end of the official Mordheim Magazine's life. I suspect they probably are some of the rarer GW miniatures.

You are building an impressive collection 'Harry' - enhanced by your painting.

The Ostlanders didn't appeal to me when they first came out - I bought 4 of the minis ( 1,3,6, & 8)

However I do have lots of the Kislev ones, and several Averlanders - the latter too I have seen go for between £8 - £11.00 each on ebay in the last year.
The Reiklanders, Middenheimers and Marienburgers were the first sets, and are slightly more common, but of course then there were the Sisters of Sigmar - another 'popular' set.
 
Ebay heartens me on a regular basis as I watch my boys' inheritance grow in value ..........

Although No 1 Son is pretty aware of the hobby, I think I had better start cataloguing the valuable ones just in case I keel over suddenly.  :engel:



Of course anyone wishing to dispose of Mordheim figures should really approach me first as I am sure I might have other Empire classics you might find attractive.

i got 11 models so i guess 2 are duplicates, which i will have to sell on e bay

If you do decide to sell them, would you be so kind as to give me a shout before you put them on ebay?

I believe there is also another rare warband, ''Averlander''

which I saw go in it's original box, last year, for £100+



I've got 4 or 5 of the Averlanders but they came to me in fairly awful condition. A few of them had really bad swaps but they should be easily fixed when I finally get around to painting them. They are lovely models.

Recipe so far: Take 10 General plastic left arm standard pole arms, chisel the ends to a point, then take 10 Chaos metal Halberd arms, cut the axe heads off, and drill a point in the axe, to fit the shafts you prepped earlier.

Use of red , green, blue and brown , and black washes to highlight and shade, then mithril silver on the edges,

I want a real weathered looking old medieval halberd!

At this stage I can say that the clothing will be white / bleached bone ,

red tassels and feathers,

the armour will be the same style indeed!

I might use some forgeworld weathering dust that i have also,

A simple trick i learned through experimenting.

I tried every light base colour in the GW range, with black wash over the top.

Astronomican Grey has the best surface adherence and result.

So u get a quickly base coated model with depth.

(http://i1027.photobucket.com/albums/y335/richardapplin/nicos.jpg)
Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images
Post by: mr chumley warner on February 02, 2011, 04:11:22 PM
so babab on top seems to give an even solid coat, forms the least puddles and holds detail and depth,

then u can work washes of your base colours onto the model, and build from there, maintaining the depth in some areas , as the black lines will still be in the recesses if you work neatly,

i've had no formal training gents, so excuse me if this is babble!

I work from home sometimes, and travel about the UK and Europe, sometimes I get drawn into 2 hour conference calls with Taiwan , so I have a sweet headset , and paint whilst talking!!

It actually chills me right out for a stressful sales role, i can be painting then take a difficult call, and then just go back to painting,

instead i used to sit there grinding over and worrying about some issue or other, no i just paint , then wack out a massive e mail real fast typing,

also have a new IP Phone with headset, so London office call me and i can paint and talk

lol

oh and also, - i wake up at 6 am and paint till 9 am where possible,

no one would believe i have been more productive since painting and working, but i had my best year in business last year lol

This unit was recruited out of Nordland by a corrupt Elector Count, Fritzl Von Schminkler.

Fritzl was tasked by the Governer to recruit 500 fighting strength Halberdiers, and only promised payment upon delivery of the troops,

he cut corners and sought the employ of men from the North lands, beyond the Sea of Claws.

Paying in gold crowns, he soon ran short , when he caned his personal stash , he turned to using these troops to loot and pillage local villages.

Never questioning the origins of the weaponry, he even allowed a small unit to bring to bear Chaos Marauder Halberds, an act which in some states would have seen him hanged, but in Nordland, the governor was more than happy to accommodate these  rough edged thugs!

Very good paint jobs in this thread - very good indeed!

There are two things that annoy me in the converted halberdiers:
1. The weapons are so heavy the men probably cannot use them effectively as halberds. They would count as Great Weapons on my table.
2. Identical left hand sleeves, and greatly varied right hand sleeves.

Sorry, I just had to poke.  :icon_redface:

Number 2 will probably go away when these are painted, if you choose balancing schemes & colours. Number 1 is typical GW over-sizing, and will probably look good to most people who keep on bying GW models.

They are rather large weapons but if you compare them to a real-world halberd then they're about the right sort of height, maybe just a little weighty in the head. They do make a wonderfully striking unit though, I love how armoured you've made them, as it makes them look more realistic.

I undercoated with Skull White followed by a 100% coat of watered down vermin brown,

from there I had my base, eg. I then added boltgun metal to vermin brown for the silver, and washed those base areas, and for the gold / bronze i used dwarf bronze+iyanden darksun,+ gryphon sepia+vermin brown, and washed the gold areas, and for the wood i simply washed with 3 stages,

I need about estimated 10 more hours on this one to finish.

My image was doing quite well on CMON, 26 votes at average score 7.7.

Then some one decided to make a malicious 7 votes all at an average of 3/10,

I calculated this , as when i check CMON the score was 6.8/10 for 33 votes,

so to drop from 7.7/10 to 6.8/10 with 7 votes, u would have to vote 3/10 every time,

so some nasty person scored me 3/10, 7 times, must have been using a proxy server to switch IP

i've removed it now

why is there such nasty people in the world ? lol

Post by: Delthos on February 11, 2011, 09:06:28 PM
Not to be a jerk, but there could be multiple people who really don't like your paint job on those miniatures. I don't think your stuff deserves a 3 rating, but I can see people only giving your stuff ratings as low as 5s, even if I'd never give them that low of a rating. It sure would seem like it would be one person for it to drop in short order, but unless it's happening to all of your pictures I wouldn't think it is just one person who doesn't like you. Especially with only 30 or so votes. It just seems odd to me to remove them because people are starting to rate your miniatures a lot lower than you expect them to be. Sure it sucks, but unless they are going to continually give bad ratings, over time your rating should normalize and get closer to where its rating should be.

Here's why I don't get worked up over it. I find that the stuff that deserves to be in the 9-10 ratings and stuff in the 1-4 ratings, will always get the overall score that they deserve. Their quality is so good or poor that even inexperienced painters can recognize the quality and will rate them accordingly. Anything in the 5-8 rating range is really a crap shoot on what rating it will wind up getting. I've seen the same miniature posted two times by the same person and on one it could have a 6.2 rating and on the other it has a 7.9 rating. Nothing has changed, they were just reposted. This is because anything in this middle range, something that isn't flawless with perfectly blended shading and highlighting and a good color scheme, and yet doesn't look like it's been painted by a monkey with a Q-tip, is very difficult for many people to give a good objective opinion on. It all depends on who's rating them and when they are rating them and what mood they are in. At the end of the day, I think any thing in the 5-8 range probably has a margin of error of about 1 full point, from where it actually should be. I find the ratings I give tend to be very close to what the average rating for a fig is. From time to time I find some that are vastly underated or overated and I've found myself giving a rating as much as 2 points higher or lower than the average. Some people are blown away by everything they see and give 10s to things that don't deserve them. I see this when people comment on a fig and the comments shows a 10 rating while the miniature is averaging between 7 and 8. I've seen the opposite as well, although underaters tend not to comment unless its a really bad fig. I guess I'm just saying its far too subjective to get worked up over. If it bothers you so much, maybe Cool Mini or Not isn't the best place for you to post your work for critique?

Those Halberdiers turned out fantastic! Very nice colours, very nice use of parts. I like the blueish hue worked into the metal and may well steal the idea, if you don't mind. I definitely would not mind if you used them as Greatswords against me in battle, but I can easily see why you would want to use them as Halberdiers. The poor sods sitting in the back rank is just killing me though! True, their weapon pose suggests they should be, but now you have to remove them first!! Ahh! The pain.. Anyway, beautiful work and very inspiring. By which I mean, I want to paint cool figures now and you may well have provided that needed push - thanks  :biggriin: .

As for the new unit, we HAVE a unit of crazy hammer wielding bald headed loonies: just put 10 Warrior Priests in one unit - would set you back a good 1000 pts and therefore only be fieldable in a 4000pt battle, and you are crippling your army in 1001 ways, but hell, good luck getting a spell through  :ph34r:

That's neat how you didn't extend the flock to the edges of your RoB board pieces.  Did you do that so less would rub off with use?
Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images
Post by: mr chumley warner on February 27, 2011, 01:31:01 PM
To be honest I rushed the ROB designa nd painting, and didn't really give it much consideration.

I wanted semi coverage of flock, rather than the whole thing flocked, but not because it would shed less, just because it was quicker !

Ideally I need to spend a couple of hundred Euros on the Monolith Icon store, to buy in some nice scenery, like a Colluseum and aqueducts etc.

Took some work with greenstuff and tools to set them right, but that's what you get from a 1997 sculpt I guess.

Just considering colours

they sent me 14 bizarely, but only 8 x bows?

I don't need a standard or musician for this 10 man detachment

i had to send back the 4 models for replacements, so just 8 at the mo in line,

They are not decals, but downloadable paper banners. It was a project I did for the Dogs of War Online website.

Hey Chumley,

first of all you work is splendid and very inspiring. I am a big fan.
One comment, I think you are missing 2 pieces on your canon, 2 bitz in dolphin shape to glue on the top of the barrel, you should see 4 empty holes right now where you are suppose to glue them. My English is not good enough to find the exact name of those.

Have a look at others people canon to know what I mean.

I think the canon look odd without it...

Not a conventional technique, but it helps so that the paint will not wipe off in your hand over time when you are working on the models.

Total speed painting, must be 8 hours in total for these 8 men so far.

They need more work, but 80% done

Excellent paint job there as always. I'm not sure which pictures show the more accurate color. These last ones where it looks darker, or the previous ones where it looks lighter. If it's as dark as the last picture, I think that looks better than the ligher color of the Pegasus in the earlier pictures.

Now if you could only do something to make the Pegasus look even less Bretonnian. I think the Bretonnian Pegasus is a great Pegasus model, it's just so much work to make it look "not Bretonnian".

Post by: Delthos on March 15, 2011, 08:20:40 PM
Yeah, he's way too small to be of use. There just isn't a good Pegasus in the GW offerings, in my opinion. I'm probably going to use the Bretonnian Pegasus myself, it just really bugs me having to do it!

it's tough getting the armour right on these old models, as the sculpts are quite messy, with bumpy bits and flash a plenty etc

I worked in about 10 layers of washes.

Enjoyed seeing that sword unit a bit back.  Thanks for the work in progress shots of the crossbowmen.  Really like the pegasus paint job!

And that single figure above is very well done.

Dear Mr. chumley,
You've absolutely inspired me with your army. I went through all 15 pages of this thread with my jaw hanging open. Truly incredible work!

I'm only just starting my Empire force and its color-scheme is almost identical to the yellow/blue combination of your Handgunner unit, steamtank, and Captsus. I would love to know how you achieved these wonderful blues and yellows. I notice that you use washes extensively and its something i've still not quite got the hang of yet, so some extra detail or advice about using them to get those colors would be amazing.

Thanks so much for sharing your work!
Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images
Post by: mr chumley warner on March 16, 2011, 08:46:34 PM
cool, for the Blue,

Start with Regal Blue, then highlight with shades of enchanted blue, wash with blue wash and babab mixed, then blend in between down to chaos black in the recesses.

Highlight up to white on the raised edges.

Enchanted Blue is the key , it seems to work very well in it's own right without much work.

My armour technique is learned over time experimenting , i use white spray undercoat, and base with boltgun + vermin brown 60/40 mix, then wash with babac , then a layer of red wash, then gryphon, then devlan mud, then a blue wash in the recesses , highlighting with a watered down mithril and up to very thin white lining .

A good trick for the yellow is to start with a washed down layer of snakebite leather as the base on top of white,

then shade upwards after washing with gyrphon

I heartily approve, I would do more of the same myself if I had sufficient militia halberd arms.  Wouldn't it be a more perfect world if GW did a large sprue of just one weapon, arm and weapon together like the militia halbard (I have trouble gluing the blades onto the shafts in the line editions, and making them look good) with a variety of arms and positions? Cant wait to see them painted. steveb

I've found they don't bother replacing bits any more, especially if it's something boxed. They just send the whole kit these days. I think they started this when they stopped doing bits orders for everything in their catalog and only doing specific bits.

I bought a Karl Franze last year. He was missing the banner pole. I called them up and had them send me a new bit, expecting just the banner pole, I got the whole kit. So now I have a second Karl Franze I can mount on a Pegasus or Horse. I also got a 2nd whole deck of magic cards when one was missing from a deck I bought when they were first released last year.

My impression is that you used a different type of blue. The previous miniature had a deeper, cleaner blue, whereas this one is more shabby and worn-out. Could be the lighting. But if it is intentional, I actually like the second one better.

Q: I want to use the wooden framed base of the war wagon, without the walls , as the base for my WALTER.

I have noted some people have done this in conversions,

it gives you a raised platform, which is great,

but needs to seperate the wall from the base , as i think it's one part in total,

do you just cut through the metal to seperate ?

That's one thing that Catholic ceremonies have in abundance, ritual, customs, and so many rules. Everything is ritualized and highly symbolic, even little things, and they are all important. Sounds like your wife is pulling out all the stops though, more than even the average Catholic wedding. Catholic weddings are quite impressive though. You better take a hit from an energy drink before you start the ceremony! Nothing worse than the Groom falling over during the ceremony. Your wife will never let you forget about it if you do.

I think you're right about the hat. Theres an awful lot of blue down the middle of the model making it hard for the eye to distinguish the seperate parts of the model. I would either go black or maybe the bone colour you used on the shirt for the hat. You'd have to be careful if you went with the bone as it might blur into the flesh.

I'm not completely sold on the hat color, but it does brighten it up without over powering it like it would if you went with any lighter color. The black was too dark and brooding. I like that the face is still obscured in shadow and is indistinct. It's very appropriate for the model.

I like the addition of the Cherub. It helps balance the composition better. There was sort of a void in the back there that was off-putting.

What's with those mold lines you left on the wheels? That's a sin worth getting burned at the stake!

I don't think it has any defined purpose or design. I'd say it is a bit of a mechanical familiar, even though it comes in the General box. I believe it comes from some of the GW artwork. It was just something odd drawn in and somebody ran with. It reminds me of some John Blanch stuff.

No worries , I like critique.

I'm still thinking about putting some patterning onto the yellow reins!

It's always tough as it can make or break a model when you add some decal/patterns in bold.

Post by: Immovable Object on April 19, 2011, 08:12:03 AM
To be honest Chumley, I didn't think this was going to work out from your earlier WIP shots. As is so often the case though, I was wrong. I'd echo what has already been said about the reins and Im not 100% sold on the bronze/gols headpieces of the horses but thats just personal preference and I dont think they do anything to take away from the model as a whole. Where did Brutus come from by the way? I must have him!
Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images
Post by: Weilyn on April 19, 2011, 08:21:08 AM
The GW people added little crosses to the reins:
http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat440090a&prodId=prod20010

I did the same thing when I painted my general a few years back, and it did break up the flatness.
Not entirely sure if it would work on your model, but it might match his hat.

When seeing the first pictures of the war altar on its base, I was going to comment on the wreaths being the same color as the head adornments, but glad to see they've now been made green, and it looks better.  I am also not sure the color of the adornments works, but at leats things eem toned down a bit with the green wreaths.  And I like the addition of the dog.

I think Brutus is a Mordheim Witch Hunter dog , that's what Ebay stated on the auction!

Mordheim WHD look like Rottweiler's with a harness. Got two on my desk and just debating on where to use them atm (sorry not for sale)

What hammers did you use for the WH - are they from the Chaos Warriors? Got my AOW hunter today and one of the gun's is a bit of a manky and was doing to do hammers or swords.

I like the scheme and the War Alter btw  :eusa_clap:

I did the champ NMM ages ago now. Looking at it I think i would prefer to change the Halberd Axe Head ! It's a nice mini apart from the Halberd

I believe that the figure is a very early GW figure from about the same time as the high helm knights, In fact I believe the same sculptor did this figure, I believe but not sure he was just labeled as a "fighter" at that time GW named each figure with a silly punnish name.  But I could be wrong.  steveb

big unarmored horses tht looked like horses, although they seemed to dance on air. Knights of which many had tall skinny feathered plumes, which broke off easily with a little rough handling, another reason they are rare and unusual. they had downward pointing, tapered pointy feet, good body proportions, pretty much decoration free, very much historical in style, also at the same time they made some fantastic panthers and reiksguard much different from the later metal ones of the same name, I will be posting a unit of tall helms soon, with some of their other friends who are riding with them. It tickles me that all the figures in the unit are older than 75% of the forum members.  steveb

Chum,

Are you going for a headswap for those guys? Halberd swap? I think they might look great just with these 2 changes but I am not sure how feasible it is (never seen this mini in real life).

I wish I could get hold of a box of 30 Altdorf halberds, I missed a bid on a box a few months ago, couldn't wake up on time...

The Altdorf ones are different to the Battlemasters , the BM ones have a fixed shield.

It's gonna be tough to remove the heads , I might try!
Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images
Post by: King on May 12, 2011, 10:41:23 AM
Chumley its not that difficult to do a head swap on these models as I did it myself.  This way the rank and file halberds will look much more interesting & less like a copy and paste of the same guy all over the unit.  However this is my take on it & I understand that some people like to have the same guy in the same position all over a unit as it makes the unit feel as if it is arrayed in order on a parade ground...........so it is up to you really & I know you will do a nice job on these guys whatever you decide  :engel:

Post by: steveb on May 12, 2011, 02:22:26 PM
regarding the head swaps, I am not saying it can't be done, but due to the scale difference you might not be pleased with the result, about the only bit that I have found that works with these battlemasters, is the armored sword and armored left arm from the militia kit, although the heads of the first plastic state troops might do since they were a tad bit smaller than the current troops.  What I would suggest you trying, is feather/plume swaps, it will make a difference when you mass the troops  together, the plumes are quite visible, as opposed to changing the body as in a head swap. You cant change the pose very much and the feathers stick up there for all to see. Just a suggestion, I am sure that whatever you do will turn out just fine.  steveb

Post by: Mariner on May 12, 2011, 04:24:57 PM
Wow, Battlemasters, I forgot all about that game!  That kept me very busy on Christmas when it came out, loads of models and that sweet watchtower.

For the head swaps, I have about 30 spare plastic Perry mercenary heads if you want them. They're slightly smaller than normal GW scale, so they would probably look right at home on the Battlemasters figs. Just shoot me your address if you want them and I'll get them mailed to you.

Post by: noibn on May 13, 2011, 11:37:10 AM
Very nice work indeed... You know, the more I see your work mr chumley, the more I want to adopt the Nordland colors for my own army. My only critizism with this particular paintjob - and I know that I'm nittpicking here - is that the spacing of the stripes on the lance are a little uneven at some places. It's not a big thing, the only reason I mention it really is because the standard of your painting is so high that there is really isn't much else one could critizied on that model.
Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images
Post by: mr chumley warner on May 13, 2011, 11:40:58 AM
Nolin - your correct, I used medical tape, to wrap round, to make the lines crisp , but the lance is oddly shaped, and it didn't work 100% as planned.

Also I agree with Shadowlord, the sculpt is pooooor

I saw it on the GW website, and thought it looked nice,

but it's small, tricky, detail is scratchy and generally annoying.....

My aim is to present 140 Halberds next game!

one block of 70 with a BSB using the mask of EEEEE (causes Terror!)  and a WP using Crown of Command (stubborn), and then two blocks of 30 with FC.

i figure a 70 man block with terror and stubborn , buffed by magic, and WP spells like unbreakable , might be the anvil that i need !

140 Halberds! That would take me another 10 years of painting.

Take a picture all together when they are painted, please. It will be an impressive sight.

Very nice Knight Sir, with the right colors. (I better get started).

I hate to be a stick in the mud...but I hate to see you wasting your considerable talent on such horrible miniatures... :Ohmy: I hope they were cheap!

I think the battle master stuff is just terrible...but YMMV.

At least I can say they look good...for BM figures... :engel:

FBjorn had inspired me to buy and paint the MC mini!

Took me 2 hours last night and 2 this morning, plus time taken prepping and undercoating the other day.

I undercoated white, painted a wash of cream, then used ink wash dark brown on the whole model, then it was easy, just picked out the amazing detail with colours and left the shadow in place..

I'm just reading Brain Greene's ''the elegant universe''

time being the 4th dimension, if you travel in 3 dimensions your motion through time is diverted to movement ,

in this manner you sacrifice speed through time for speed through space, and in doing so age slower compared to a relative onlooker.

I only studied Physics to UK A Level, and then Master of Engineering, but I recall enough to make this book a really good read.,

I didn't know for instance that Photons from the Big Bang have been proven not to have aged ...

It makes perfect sense now to me reading this,

It was a Middenland army BSB - Teutogen guy with a different metal standard. The hands are in a slightly different position to the normal TTG SB.

They occasionally appear on ebay and can command silly prices too.

This months July Painting contest entry,

''Anatoly Krakoff'' ; Kislev Young Blood Wolf Pack Initiate.

To join the ranks of the experienced Wolf Pack Handlers you must first undergo a gruelling ordeal, 7 days and nights in the snow covered mountains, fighting off wilder beasts , with only your Wolf and your Sabre to get you through!

Some men each year never return, lost to the cold, or mauled by feral beasts in the night!

Every man comes home with mental scars, but those who are successful, make the ranks of the ''Wolf Pack'' , amongst the bravest units of the Kislev townships.

They are often deployed by cunning Kislev generals to scout ahead of the forward line, and engage small enemy units, sniffing out enemy scouts, and setting their Wolves charging an opponent, then following in with a deadly strike from their Sabre Swords!

''Borg Beagle'',  townsman, a farmer, from the City of Kislev.

Every family man in Kislev is bound by law to own a shield and sword, and be ready to take arms against the Marauding Chaos Hordes from the Northern Wastes; at a moments notice.

Farmers, traders, blacksmiths, craftsmen, fishermen, young and old, are always ready for battle.

Circa 1500 Imperial Calendar, there was a large westward migration from the eastern steppes, and of particular importance was the arrival of the powerful and wealthy Gospodars. Torn with strife, the Empire was in no position to contest these lands, and the superior arms and tactics of the Gospodars drove the Ungols to the west and north, who in turn absorbed the Ropsmenn completely. Over the following century, the power of the Gospodars grew, and the city of Kislev was founded.

The Gospodars brought with them the religion of the bear.

yeah I looked at the model, and thought how good it would be to have his upper torso on legs, but before I started i admitted that it would likely fail.

I had to hack across the whole one side , where his cloak and arm are , remove half the model etc.

Botch job , but i love the design of his head and the hat etc, so I just had to make him into a Kislev Boyar.

Years ago in 1990 I bought the Marauder Fighter Pack from Mail order, all 30!

I took it to school to show friends, i was only 11 i think.

I recall that I somehow lost one model on the bus, accused some lad of stealing it, then found it the next day outside my house in the grass !

It was F28, the guy with the funny hat.

Anyway, i've just bought him on e bay, stripped him, and undercoated , ready to join the Kislev horde!

Nostalgia my friends. :)

Honest ..

The Armour is pre mixed in a pot , with vermin brown.

Once the undercoat and bases are done, then you paint every model at once,.

undercoat is army painter grey, then wash heavy black and brown...

Basecoats: so Tallarn flesh each man, then armour on each man, then blue cloth, then browns, then orange, then wash all of them, use hair dryer at every stage to dry,

wash again,

highlight is simple also

job done

Nice run-down - how many layers do you highlight?  Is it normally just a mix of the color plus white/off white?

I think I shall have to try a grey undercoat - I mostly use black nowadays.

Different highlights for different colours. Armour for instance, is Boltgun + Vermin base, then washes, then Mythril Highlight.

Flesh = Tallarn Base, Washes, then highlight with Dwarf flash , then cheat with eyes using 0.2mm dot ink pen

almost finished 40 Kislev models now!

It's set me back around £150 - 200 so far for the unit, all lead.

The darn Mordheim Kislev Captain model keeps selling on e bay for around £30+ , i just haven't managed to win one yet!

That will finish my Kislev warband nicely if i can get one!

Your command group looks great (as everything you paint).
The whole group harmonize all together.
The tufts of grass is really nice touch to the base.

certainly beefy Halberds, arguably too beefy for the 28 mm models.

However I love the idea that Empire Halberds should look nasty and dangerous!

Will you be using him as a R&F or a champion?

Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images
Post by: mr chumley warner on August 09, 2011, 03:29:27 PM
i consider myself a cheat ,

spray grey primer, then wash all over,

pre mixed colours, like armour with brown to give it a rusty edge ,

then use mass washes and a hair dryer to speed up.

Art Pen to dot the eyes,

highlighting with a small brush speedily ,

then also the black BG i use to photo the model is really kind to the shading, and absorbs excess light nicely, so the pics always look ok.

i use GIMP Photo Tool to adjust the brightness and Contrast automatically

etc


it's fast

I MUST try that hair-dryer trick!! Also, these Ostlanders, will they be champions and/or characters? Or are you just painting 'em for the sake of painting 'em? Not that there's anything wrong with that, it's just I have so little time that anything I paint is generally going into my army somewhere.....

I think that's about right, i have been painting Empire since early last year, I think maybe march time in hindsight.

Before that I had a quick few months painting High Elves in 2004, then prior to that 40K/WH/Epic in 1989 - 1995/6.

Gamezone Germany,
I have seen these many times on the GZ website and have never been impressed really. They just looked shoddy to me and not worth the coin for them. But now that i have seen them nicely painted, like you have done, and my opinion has changed 180 degrees. This is why mini sellers need to get there line painted and put on their site. If painted to a decent standard it could only improve their sales. But Mr. C, well done paint job indeed. They do look very good. Love the blood stain detail work as well. Enjoying the painting link alot. :)

As a newbie to the site I have been looking at some ideas for my empire army I started a little while ago so it looks a little different from the normal stuff, a little conversion here and there nothing fancy. I have been well impressed by the models and had a look to find some for my self and found a uk web site for the game zone models plus some other ones which are very interesting and could be used in warhammer or 40k. http://www.artemisblacks.com//index.shtml This one made me rise an eye brow http://www.artemisblacks.com/dragonblood/images/DBM011%20Princess%20of%20the%20Evening%20Star.jpg.

Its very interesting to see your process. I'm beginning to understand exactly how you can crank out the units so fast!

I'm not digging the single blue stripe on the the feathers of your red Greatswords. It just looks out of place to me. It really clashes with the scheme and I'm drawn to that stripe everytime I look at them. I'm sure that wasn't your intent. Other than that, they look great.
Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images
Post by: mr chumley warner on September 02, 2011, 07:18:13 AM
you can indeed paint fast if you let the washes do the work,

I'm starting to think painting about 5 rank and file in one go is optimum.

That halberdier looks really good but please don't use the same arm unmodified on 30 models, it starts to look bad!

In my unit of free company halberdiers I've repostured the arms a little. check them out (http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6151/6173565238_ffa29da155_z.jpg). Another great idea is moving the hand+ weapon on to a new right arm.

I might have to take up fantasy writing if this is the benchmark of success!

The only book I've read of his I liked was the one in the first three of the 40K Heresy series.  Trying to get through book number 5 of the same series currently, which is also by him, and its really dragging.  Tried some of the Ultra Marines stuff by him and couldn't finish.

Looking really good, especially when you consider your painting speed. I also start to like the conversion more and more when I see them grouped.

How do you do it? 1. Basecoat everything 2. Wash it all (preferably one wash on the whole model 3. Highlight prominent areas once ?
Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images
Post by: mr chumley warner on September 30, 2011, 08:20:58 AM
I tend to go with one colour as an undercoat.

In this case a brown spray, because from brown i can easily get to skin tones, leather clothing, rusted armour and wood, red and gold and cream cloth.

So once they are under coated together and the sand applied on the bases, it's easy to get them finished very quickly.

Don't forget your handy hair dryer :)

I use a standard GW brush for everything, apart from some highlights.

I like the way the skirted halberdiers look sort of old-fashioned, almost ceremonial or something. I would totally convert and field a unit like that if I could afford the bits.

Though now that I think about it, giving them tall fur hats and green skin could be pretty great. Then they could be the Tsarina's Ice-Witch's personal guard. "Oh we loathe, the oooold one. Oh we loathe, the oooold..."

Yeah, just sink a ton of cash into some Vostroyans for the heads and you are good to go.

An Oz themed army would be a really cool army. The Pegasus riding wizard would be represented by the Wicked Witch of the West on her broom, and likely a death wizard.  I'm not sure what to do with Dorothy, someow a Wizard doesn't feel right. I'd make the Tin Man into a Captain on foot, probably the BSB and give him AoMI. I'd make the Scarecrow into an Engineer. I'd use the Cowardly Lion as a Warrior Priest. Mr Warner's halberdiers as Witch's Castle guards. Build some with Greatswords instead of halberdiers to get the variety in there an have more troop types. Build some little people for the Urban Army, most likely as swordsmen. I'm thinking some apply trees for canons and helblasters. I'd model a small tornado and call it my steam tank, or maybe use it as a Helstorm. Did you notice what I just did there? The rational being it flings houses out that land on the enemy units! Just need to find a way to work flying Monkey miniatures into the army, maybe they could work as Pistoliers. This could be a really fun army to build. Too bad I've already gone too far on my army as it is. I've never read the book so I don't know how many other things there, are but the movie alone has tons of material for use.

Saw that guy get sold on the swedish version of Ebay some days ago. Now that I see him here I kind of regrets that I didn't bid more for him... And I will probably regret it even more when I see him all painted up with your skill. Damn!

Got one of his friends though!  :happy:

It's a toppled scarecrow. If you look closely you can see the smashed pumpkin that was its head. Hmmm, maybe I've spent too much time poring over the Kislev contingent supplement, that I know that off the top of my head...

Anyway, the painted horses certainly make those pistoliers stand out. Clever idea!

I posted my Pistoliers on CMON, and they have been slated.

I compared similar scores with other Pistolier images, and some of the other images getting the same score had paint out of place, smudges , looked wrong etc.

Are your Pistoliers completely red, or just their front quarters like those GW Kislev with their painted on patterns you showed earlier? I can't quite tell from these pictures. If you posted the same three view picture you posted here, it could be affecting your score as it's kinda small and you can't make out details. Ultimately I think the red horses are affecting your score. Maybe it's the pictures but the white on the horses is contrasting really strong with the red on them. The color of their manes seems a little out of place as well. Taken by themselves I think the horses look good, and the pistolier riders look good, but I think they aren't working together so well. I'm a little surprised as you usually pick colors that work well together.

Also I just noticed, did you paint the horse's eyes white? If you did that's something that you almost never see, unless a horse is scared. They have very large iris/pupils. They usually fill almost the entire eye opening, with maybe a little of the white showing in the back upper portion of the eye. Take a look at some pictures of horse heads to see what I'm talking about.

I dunno, althou I see where you're coming from I'm not sure I'd agree that any of the things you mentioned should really effect the overall score. I don't know what the consensus over at CMON is but I tend to judge paintjobs primarily on how well a given technique is pulled off. I personally find say, a smooth color transition - whether it be wetblending or layering - much more relevant than what pertiqular color combination was used. Certainly, there are extreme cases where it's valid to question the artists choice of colors but not in this case I think. The horses and the pistoliers armor look very crips in my opinion. If there's anything draging them down I would say it's the basing, mainly because it almost looks identical on some of them, with the tufts of grass on the same place etc. But that's really nitpicking it...

My two cents anyways
Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images

Mr C W, if you are put off by some ones opinion, or lack of enthusiasm. Then you need to stop and ask yourself; why am I painting? is it because it gives you pleasure to create, to solve paint scheme an technique problems? Are you happy when you paint because you are exercising a skill that few people have been blessed with?  Do you enjoy the majesty of massed ranks of colorful troops you have painted? Do the unique sculptures make make you appreciate the sculptors skills?  Do you like taking a figure and converting it into something usually better, something that is uniquely yours?  If your answer to any or all of these is yes, then you shouldn't be concerned with value or worth that anyone else attaches to your work.  You shared your world, that should be sufficient, besides some other sites (un-named) are more than a little pretentious.  Keep doing what you are doing and sharing. steveb

Leave it to Steveb to put things in perspective.

The simple fact you are 50 pages in this thread and have such a following should give you better indication of your skill and your inspiration than an arbitrary grading system made up of different people that aren't even judging by the same standards. I for one look to you (And many other members of this forum) as both a well of ideas to make my own imagination work harder, as well as a goal to aspire to in my own painting endeavors.

Addictive behaviours give short term relief to long term issues, and not usually in a good way.

Painting military figures by itself can be addictive.  The trick is finding balance with everything else in life.

Don't worry Chumley.  Your painting is plenty good enough and is obviously enjoyable by folks here.

(posted elsewhere on the forum) and it worked like a charm :) under 2 hours from sprue to table top :)  Some fantastic stuff here, I really like the DE combo halberdiers.  Your pistoliers many may consider an acquired taste, but it is a fantasy army people :) I really like the paint job, don't know if I'd done it for pistoliers but that's me (If they were my kislevites?.....)

Remember - nothing better than seeing a huge fully painted army arrayed for battle with more guns than you can poke a stick at :)
Also...
Coffee is for painting, beer is for gaming :)

CMoN is a bit of an eye of the beholder, some great stuff some cr@p and the ratings don't always reflect this...  this aside though...

Agreed...  Consistency is somewhat lacking in votes, and as a good friend said who used to use CMoN quite a bit had said, it is just a much a judge upon your photography skills than it is your painting skills.

Coffee is for painting, beer is for gaming :)

Yes, but do not make the mistake of too much coffee before painting, you can get shaky.  "Darn, my troops look like they've been painted by an overactive, hyper 3-year-old, but I can stay up for days painting them!"

just don't mistake your brush cleaning mug for your coffee mug, brush water tastes nasty. Although coffee will clean a brush fairly nicely.  :blush:steveb

Made that mistake once   :blush: 
Now I use completely different containers for my beverage, and paint water, unless I am at work on lunch, where I use a styrofoam cup for both.  Though admittedly, I put my drink way on the other side of my desk so I don't get confused...I am thinking pop/ or tea would not clean brushes so well.

I have to admit being a bit upset by the score I get at cmon sometimes too.  :blush: I expected to get 8 on my latest addition there (after I really put an effort on my latest greatswords), but it ended up at about 7,6. Could not help myself thinking, wtf I spent hours and hours on these guys and some people rate it 7, bah.... But then again, if you look at the best stuff at cmon. Stuff that are rated around 9 is amazing, while those rare rated 10 seem impossible. comparing my own work with those I realize that I'm not there yet (and will probably never be). With that said an 8 is a pretty high score at cmon considering that you get to see the best painted minis in the world there. Plus the best painted minis over there are not part of armies. These master painters spend ridiculous amounts of time on one mini.

I like your stuff alot, keep it up!
Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images
Post by: mr chumley warner on October 17, 2011, 03:07:43 PM
u just got an 8 from me, lol

i had an army pic on there not so long ago, it reached 8.5 with 52 votes...

Then some guy decided he didn't like me, and kept logging in using a proxy server, voting 1/10, as my score started tumbling, even though it was on there for months at a stable 8.5 , with no additional votes being added.

CMON is rubbish actually.

Whoever programmed their site, allows for multiple voting from IP addresses,

you don't even have to be a logged in member to vote,

you can vote twice from one IP, then go via a free proxy and vote twice, and keep doing this switching your IP.

I saw a guy on there selling an e bay auction for a greatsword, which was voted 9/10, but an obvious 6.5/10 in reality,

blatent proxy voting

it's rigged completely,

in fact i am going to mail their admin now and voice this blatent fact

Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images
Post by: mr chumley warner on October 17, 2011, 08:57:04 PM
First of all. Don't be too serious with the scores. We've had countless of discussions about them and yes the system is flawed but the majority of it is not through cheating as it tends to even out in the end. Most of the vote irregularities comes from people posting on forums, facebook, blogs and having fans. You can vote as a nonmember but there's a few algorithms in place that takes care of some of the sniping and inflation of scores.

One member - one vote, is one of these things that have been up for discussion and there are arguments for and against the proposition. The compromise that was implemented some years ago is that if you are a member you can also see the registered score next to the ordinary so it's blatantly obvious if something is amiss. For example my latest mini has an 8.1 score with a total of 36 votes the registered rating is 8.0 with 16 votes. And that's the usual case, not a lot of difference.

The biggest help to the scores would be if more people voted.

if the paint/washes you apply is a consistent thin even coat, then you apply the hair dryer, you can achieve a quick above average quality .

I feel like a cheat in some ways.

All done using a standard GW brush, and only a fine detail brush for the eyes and some highlights.

I've removed all my images from CMON now.

Their admin won't reply to me, he knows my last mail was correct.

I basically told him that their system is flawed in cases where good will is bypassed.

EG.

1. Competition voting.
2. E Bay Sellers voting.
3. Personal grudge voting.

In each of the 3 above cases an individual will possibly make multiple votes to scew the scoring in their favour, and CMON's site doesn't protect against that by ensuring 1 vote per logged in member, which would be the obvious solution.

Totally flawed.

eeek

I think I ahve finally found a glass cabinet capable of holding all my models , it's 6 foot tall, 2 foot wide, 1 foor deep, with 5 shelves,

going to view it tomorrow hopefully
congratulations, those things are fabulous, keeps the dust off, an imperative so that you dont damage them trying to remove accumulated detritus.  Do you think I could rent it to place my Cav Corp in? I think they might fit if we pack them tight.  steveb    :biggriin: :biggriin:

Worse yet, sentencing them to a life in the case, never to be played with for fear that some harm may befall them. 

If they did befall from Dwellers, and you don't have a stroke, you could just write some awesome fluff for the unit...Just think of the tales that could be told at the pub by one surviving member of the regiement that got brought down from the Dwellers below...it would add to their noteriety, etc...

Had the fellow bring solid brass dice into a game at the shop I was managing at the time,. Like you said rolled like Thor hitting the table and unleashed a small earthquake loud enough to stop the rest of the players on other tables. I walked over there examined the huge dents in the wooden table  and models scattered everywhere. “WHAT WERE you thinking I asked the knucklehead”  He said he thought it would be funny, I told him the funny thing is he needs to apologies for the broken miniatures , my boss for his table splinters, if not he can leave until he does!!

Next step after the 2nd wash dries, I spray the models with purity seal.

This gives a matt sheen.

Then I dry brushed the bases with bleached bone.

Man, you are fast and good in the same time. Washes really make the difference between solid and excellent. Personally I don't use THAT much for rank and file. But if you are willing to put in the extra effort, the resulsts are smashing.
 
By your opinion how do GW and Gamezone halberdiers stand together on the table? Not n the same unit thou.

I'm thinking to get some Gamezone to make an elite halberdies with extra armour. Sort of like count's bodyguard. do you think it could work?

They look great. Interesting to see your method step-by-step. Thanks. Do you always use those two washes (black + blue & black + sepia), or are they used in this example because of the particular colour scheme (yellow + purple)?
Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images

I guess you must just be good with a brush. If my colours are too watered down it seems like they can't help but running everywhere. Do you know how you stop this happening?
Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images
Post by: mr chumley warner on November 20, 2011, 11:02:02 AM
It's a good point you make, I guess I have unconsciously developed an eye for the right consistency of paint on a palette.

Indeed too watery will lead to running.

It's more about the amount of paint applied to the brush.

I think that only practice can improve standards.

Thanks for the shameless plug Mr CW. Glad you're getting on well with the bases. The artillery look fab.

Also, great to see a step by step. Very similar to my own style of painting using very thinned paints, just much faster as I don't have a hair dryer... Or any hair for that matter.

Keep up the sterling work.

Post by: Timbor on November 21, 2011, 12:23:01 PM
Looking good!

One question I have always had - when you water down your paints to a watery consistency, how do you add highlights without having the paint just run into the recesses?  I have always had a problem preventing that...
Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images
Post by: mr chumley warner on November 21, 2011, 12:25:37 PM
using a fine detail brush , you only have a fine amount of paint on the brush, and highlighting usually involves drawing the brush along a raised area , like the edge of some armour,

therefore I don't see how you would have a chance for paint to run into a recess in this circumstance?

it's all about the amount of paint on the brush and it's consistency.

then i will plan to paint the raised areas with very light colours, using the shade which the wash already provided

it's my own weird technique :)

I have always wanted to collect an imperial army using the miscellaneous pikemen on the site  :-(

Kick-ass highlighting! That halberd in the center back looks like it's been done in NMM, nice crips straight lines. I'm guessing it's not pure mithril there, am I right?
Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images
Post by: mr chumley warner on November 23, 2011, 09:23:51 PM
Mythril + white indeed.

Purity Seal gives them a duller look , hence maybe in some light they look NMM.

Stupid IF Felsh to Stone spell at just the right time. Those damn greatswords were unkillable!

And regarding the two halberdier units, they were facing like 6/700 points of Iron Breakers and Dwarf Lord...if they hadnt lost I'd have been upset.

Funniest though was my dwarves running down and killing Volks general...on his horse...with his knights...

Very interested in comments regarding colour choice here?

What do you recon?

I'm stuck at the mo,

also the Valten model is not suitable as the metal sculpt arrived and he is sandwiched to the horses head etc, and has a metal robe also,

so comments regarding a suitable rider for KF would be very welcomed

I've always planned to use one of the older White Wolf knights as my hero on griffon/dragon (modular if possible, to ride both). But, I tend to like slightly more understated figures for my heroes:

One of the hammer-swingers here:  http://solegends.com/citcat9x3/c92344empcav-02.jpg

You could use Borgio from the DoW range. I converted him to have a lance for my Empire, and I really like the look of him:

http://madponies.net/images/empire/oti.b.jpg

Maybe something like this Perry standard bearer, standard swapped for an axe or hammer or something:

Or the heroic chap in the middle here?

Hmm, Im not familiar with many wayyy OOP models, but the old MB15 pegasus rider is pretty cool:

http://www.solegends.com/citcat9x3/c92420marempheropegasus-01.htm

The problem is a lot of the older OOP stuff has a more 'simple' sculpting style.  I think you need something from the 90's and onwards to match that dragon.
Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images
Post by: steveb on December 09, 2011, 06:55:25 PM
I would use a combination of general kit, Karl franz head (see silicone/greenstuff molds) and engineer/pistolier hand weapons. and any other bits that you may wish to throw in from anywhere, of course he would have side weapons/sword/hammer etc., but I would give him repeater pistols like the engineer ones, reason being, what do you think he would probably hit if he was swinging a big sword from the dragon's back? or imagine a hammer blow breaking a wing or bopping the dragon in the head=a quick change of allegiance by the dragon. obviously hand guns would extend the reach of the rider and still allow hand to hand combat with the survivors.  just my opinion. steveb

Purple:
Purple may represent sexual frustration or a need to appear unorthodox, and is a favorite color of artists. Historically, purple has represented royalty, and in darker hues suggests magic and mystery.

With only one dragon and no mating going on it is very fitting I guess.

The young KF, made his name with acts of insanhe bravery.

He once fought off a horde of 200 Chaos Marauders single handedly , atop his Dragon, whilst flying north of the border!

He spotted them out on his day off,  and engaged at will!

lol , your right,

he's almost standing up to hit some1 with his runefang,

i'm sure the dragon must weigh at least 5 times KF, so i think it could take his weight in reality,

I think I have to agree with Soth on all 3 points on this Chumley  :|  The rider looks like he is surfing on the dragon nearly like the old wood elf eagle riders did and I think this is the main let down.

Post by: Deuce on December 16, 2011, 02:14:40 PM
That looks like Theodore Bruckner from the FW range. He looks perched very high up there - I think the positioning is causing a lot of the problem. The saddle rises very high above the back of the dragon and it's positioned above the forearms which looks strange. If the saddle were slimmer and he were seated further forward it might look more natural. I think this is a problem with the dragon plastic kit as the rider on there also looks a bit weird.

Perhaps a higher throne-like back on the saddle might help to offset the height problem, if not?
Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images - The Young Karl Franz
Post by: mr chumley warner on December 16, 2011, 02:39:23 PM
Ok so, section sawed from neck of dragon, neck angled forward to allow more room, to mount KF lower down directly.

Armour highlighted further, and purple emblems changed to red.

Human beings often have tunnel vision,

people think they have created something good, or are good at something, but fail to see the mistakes, or that they missed something crucial.

You get wrapped up in your own ideology too easily .

I like criticism, it gives you insight into how to improve

Whar really could help is if you create something bulky up in front of him....a shield or another big and chunky device and put some reins on it ...those reins you could put in his empty hand.

Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images - The Young Karl Franz
Post by: Alleton on December 16, 2011, 04:28:36 PM
I think the sword might look better as another color, it kinda gets lost in all the armor when you look at it from the side. Very excellent painting however, I hope one day to be near this good.

Post by: Siberius on December 16, 2011, 05:59:57 PM
Yup, the colouring on the armour is making it look better and the sword change really helps too.

I have to admit, I too feel like it is just missing some reigns, especially as his hand is kinda out there not doing anything. The difficulty would be where  they'd attach on the dragon. Not seeing a really obvious choice, though maybe a 'bit' like on a horse mouth could work...

The model is much improved after your alterations. I wouldn't have been able to pin down what I didn't like about it first time around, just that it seemed 'unbalanced', but now it looks good. I like fantasy models to still look like they would 'work' in a physical world.

An excellent addition to your fine collection. Will he be fielded in battle?

I think it would be neat putting the chain around the dragons lower neck right where you can visibly see the glue and mould lines then placing a shield over top! I think that would look great! Anyways love the brazen armor and the bold purple shows courage incredible work; I hope to one day become as good a painter and modeler as yourself!

That means he will be surprised when my 4K pts includes KF on Dragon!

Do you think KF on Dragon can hold up 50 Orcs single handed?

Try someplace like Michael's or Hobby Lobby (Not sure what they would be called over the pond, a craft store of some kind) check in the jewelry making section, they often have spools of different type/color chain. Or as an alternative, you could buy cheapo necklaces from those little coin operated machines you see in the entrance of grocery stores.

You painted it! Lovely work!

I have objectively judged your paint job according to the following, widely recognized criteria of Ludenhof-painting (0-10):

Spending ”ages” on snobbish facial expression: 10
Blackness of armour (good choice!): 10
Degree to wich caparison is chosen over the usual barding (unexpected but works well!): 10
The little shields with cherubs and whatnot at his shoulders: 7 (Would have loved to see some more colours on those)
Boldness of not matching falcon sword hilt to crest (falcon crest!): 10

In addition, you get an overall +100 pts bonus for your general drive and wonderful impulsivity, as well as for providing us with vivid descriptions of the angst-laden experiences that fuel your artistic genius:

- i'm on a train and need a number 2


BUT, I will also have to penalise you for this (-100 pts):

I don't like Hochland colour scheme  :mrgreen:
  ::heretic:: ::heretic:: ::heretic::

But overall, that is still well over a 9!

He is OOP as far as I know, they remade Leitdorf (Oddly enough as fluffwise he's dead AND you could make him from the general kit) I wouldn't mind seeing them make more of the older sculpted Electors in finecast. They may so keep an eye out.

Here I looked it up as you still didn't say way TFT is.

Thin Film Transistor (liquid crystal display)

From what I just read, they are a varient of LCD and they have a better image quality than a regular LCD.
Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images
Post by: mr chumley warner on January 11, 2012, 08:35:47 PM
Stop pulling me plank gents, all Laptops have TFT DIsplays in, as do most PC Monitors.

An LCD is basically an LCD TFT, eg. a liquid crystal display with a thin film transistor logic layer.

Each pixel has a small Transistor which switches the cell to allow through a certain amount of light in the desired colour.

I just had this horrible thought that somehow all along Warhammer Empire has been a dream world, locked in time 30 years back , that I somehow accessed, where people have never heard of TFT displays!!

Started age 8 with some old school kit, humbrol etc, 40K aged 11 to 16 on and off, but my painting style lacked quality.

I recall aged 16 starting to paint a deathwing terminator quite well, and feeling i was about to get good!

Then women, d rugs , alcohol , study, university all took precedent,

I got back into this for the painting initially , with a quick spell in 2004 for a few months, but then again a couple of years ago,

Just ran with it as you can see from my PLOG,

the first models i painted  2+ years back were the Empire Plastic Knights,

you can see my effort in the PLOG at the start,

i didn't know the difference between panthers and reiksguard , so the shields and heads are all mixed up, but the colours and blue and yellow - nordland ish...

http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcT3GDbIcdu7Zbi246ss_28Q6utekKakkuCam7RIKSSlyI_0wU7H (http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcT3GDbIcdu7Zbi246ss_28Q6utekKakkuCam7RIKSSlyI_0wU7H)


I have tried painting horse eyes like that, but they usually end up looking like a black dot.  Making them look a bit more like a human eye helps to differentiate the eye from the rest of the face, IMO.  If anyone asks, just say, 'hey, its fantasy!'

7 Artillery pieces , some scout and vanguard distractors, and a solid troop base, plus flaggie trap ,

hoping that the opponent will be forced to advance on me,

HBVG's protect the flanks and War machines with 1 engy each ,,,,,

the Walter and Genesus smash the enemy on the centre left, and can deal with anything given my loadout.

The army can handle monsters, elites, large hordes, characters and fast movers

I like the symmetrical (or semi-symmetrical) approach, it might distract your opponent if they were hoping to deploy against a "main" strength, I think I will try it next time. I've been away for a while, what is the Genesus business? It sounds like a general on a Pegasus. Is there a particular item combination that makes him awesome?

Genesus   (gen on peg)   130
FPA + Sh      15
Holy Relic      45
Sw of Power      40

=====================

I use him to get in for a scrum!

He can tie up enemies,

2+ save + 4 + ward and St 6 ,
Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images
Post by: mr chumley warner on January 17, 2012, 07:13:30 AM
I'm hoping that the pistoliers and huntsmen will provide enough distractions to see some enemy units detract from the main force or get held up for a few turns .

Giving me a chance to pound them more with artillery.

The Walter, Genesus , and Greatswords move forward and engage key targets

ideally hordes of 100 Goblins etc, which they can work through in time,

the heavy duty Orc's in units like 50 off will be softened with multiple artillery , and then crazied/halberded / magic attacked,

leaving the cannon+ hbvg's to eat monsters,

the VHS on Walter will pick out and eat enemy characters

I'm just not comfortable using the Hochland, it's got less chance of killing an enemy character than a bolt of lightning from the blue!

You would require 10 engineers stood there with Hochlands to make a dent!

Even then a strong character with good Ward Save would stand up to it easy!

Basically you should see little to no white, unless they are upset or scared. I usually just do almost the whole thing with a brown ink or smoke glaze, and a dot of white for a reflection. Or, just a big black/brown dot that takes up all but the corners, leaving the wee-est bit in white.

It is not problem for GW standard it is about price because every person would say when he should pay : "It is to much for me" (even if you ask ok price), But when is work of that person (even if is lower then yours) he will say:" That is good price for you"
So I think that is question about standardization of price for some level of painting (how much hours cost, materials and can painter make it enough for living and be professional )
Example for about GW standard you ask about 8-10 pounds per foot soldier etc. (so if someone wish he will know either to paint or asko for commission)
If someone fix that question you will know the answer  :engel:

The emperors chosen guard, a standing unit of 200 able men, plucked as elites from successful battles up and down the land.

Any member must pass a rigorous entry test, and only a small minority each year make it through, some even die  in the famous forest marathon, a 30 mile trek through dangerous beast filled forests!

Although they no longer fight alongside KF, they are called upon when the Empire is threatened by a superior evil.

Clad in Full Plate, these men fight with sword or axe and shield , with such skill and finesse that they move as swiftly as a man in leather armour.

I've got 5 or 6 units (of around 20-25) of those old models, that for the most part need stripping and re-painting.  The trouble for me is they're all a bit mix'n'match style wise, some could pass happily as Empire, some look Bretonnian, others just look out of place, and they're all odd sizes as well.  I think if I set in my mind that they were mercenary units, who just used whatever armour they found adventuring, or had passed down from ancestors, maybe in my mind I could fit them in easier. 

Then again, I need to get paint on hundreds and hundreds of models, so in all likelihood they'll never get re-done

I'm on a similar mission, but with the advantage of having a got a lot of them from when they came out, but with gaps here and there.  From 4th edition onwards, the only stuff I'm missing are the Estalian style handgunners and swordsmen, a couple of the Horse Archer variants, one of the Mordheim Witch Hunters, which is still available from GW online, but you can't pick which if the 4 you get given, and I don't want to buy 10 to get the 1 I want, and end up with duplicates. And some of the rare multipart Sisters of Sigmar variants. I think I have pretty much everything else from 4th onwards.   And quite a lot of the Marauder Miniatures stuff (Which back then would have been used by anyone no-complaints, unlike the is it official or not arguament you get with Forgeworld these days).  And I've got lots of the Citadel Fighter series, some of which was labeled as Empire towards the end of 3rd Edition.  And a handful of pre-slotta stuff which really aren't worth chasing down unless you're truly obsessed and minted.

Of course I'm saying this to illustrate what I've collected, and to show off a little bit,but let me be clear, I'm not selling!  Sorry!

Anyway, decided to see what i could do in one hour, and managed to save 8 of them, by applying some better base coats and then a massive wash to hide the dry brush nastyness.

So far not bad for 1 hours work?

13 more painted chaos warriors arrived from e bay,

i got them real cheap, and expected to touch them up to basic gaming standard,

however the guy seems to have glooped them all by dipping them into some kind of gloss varnish, which in some places is so thick it's not funny~!

i might have to abandon ship and bin them all!

I have to say the new shape chaos plastic models are bulky, lacking in decent detail, and generally boring to paint,

they are just like blobs!

rubbish!

sod chaos!

I'm not sure you are looking at the same Warriors of Chaos models I'm looking at. They are big and bulky, but certainly aren't lacking detail. I've not painted any of them yet, so I can't comment on how boring they are to paint.

wash blue and babac

hair dryer

Best Ogres sculpts ever! I love what you have done with them and it makes me want to get back to my own...I've got 2 left to do.

The only thing I'm not fond of are the bases on these figures.  I would paint the side of the base topper to look like the rocks not the side of the base...makes them look thick and weird IMO.

That is of course a VERY minor critique...over all they are the mutts nuts!

I would agree, I save my green for my 40k Orks.  I was thinking to save some money on paint, I would paint my Empire in the same scheme as my ork army at the time (which was Bad Moonz/ Averland)  But, I have since decided to go with purple and white for my Empire.

I'd believe it. Makes me cry a little on the inside. Hairdryer wizardry notwithstanding, nobody should get such good results so quickly.

And yeah, I agree that the metal knights are superior to the multi-part plastics. I think the plastic kit suffers from being from so long ago - GW multi-part kits nowadays tend to be excellent.

Post by: Deuce on February 10, 2012, 12:19:32 AM
I don't mind the plastic knights - I find some of the newer plastics too cartoony, but the knights are a bit bland. They can't compare to the old metal knights, though. Pretty much everything put out for the Empire in the 90s was fantastic. I get very jealous reading this plog!
Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images
Post by: kwest on February 10, 2012, 12:59:21 AM
Backtracking a little bit to the archers... I think the bret ones would fit in okay if you did some simple conversions.

They're all wearing knee length jackets, tights and plimpsoles so the biggest things that make the brets stand out is the repetative poses and the heads/arms (which could be easily swapped out if you have some spares). Once you did that and used the same colour scheme the unit should blend together pretty well.

It's shame that my talents are not worth money.

I actually have a short attention span, especially with work, hence I am in sales.

I focus on winning a deal, and then as soon as I win, i'm fighting for the next one.

My painting is like this, I want to achieve a good result fast.

using a combi of babac + ogryn flesh,

babac + gryphon,

babac + asurmen blue,

over a mix base of scorched brown + boltgun ,

then highlight skull white + mythril 50/50

Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images
Post by: Hoodling on February 13, 2012, 10:49:31 PM
Presumably "babac" is Badab Black?

3 stages of washes with nothing in between... What happens if you mix 3 parts black with 1 part each of ogryn flesh, gryphonne and asurmen, so it can be done in a single stage? Will the result be noticeably different? Will it not be dark enough because it's still only a single layer of wash?

I'd find a pre-mixed pot of that as my dedicated "armour wash" to be far more efficient than having to mix 3 stages and apply them one after another.

Also, it's somehow a relief that you have not yet finished this unit. Probably just because you're perfecting a new method, but hey...
Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images
Post by: valmir on February 13, 2012, 11:40:12 PM
The stages need to be separate, because an important function of the washes is that they tint what's below them. Therefore order becomes important.

Thanks for the description. That bears no resemblance whatsoever to anything I've tried. I think I might be able to adapt it to do what I want...

Thats cheap enough (assuming not recast). I paid almost that for one (equally I picked up some of the rarer variants for £1.49 inc p&p, so make of that what you will).

Its worth remembering that unreleased minis can be more common than some of the limited releases. There seem to be 20 marauder mm66 knights for every mounted Battle Lord and Retainers, even though both same period, and the Battle Lord was general release.

Same guy had 6 or so on a couple of weeks ago - no bids on any of them!


Now, the Mordheim Jester with no legs...that is a model I'd love to get my hands on, and that is purely because it looks a great sculpt rather than its rarity.

Nice knight models, really great to see such rare pieces. But what about the horses and their size. To me they are looking like ponies. Could you please post a pic in which it comes to a comparison between the current barded horses and those steeds (compared to the pistolier horses those do not fit at all either). To my mind the question we have to deal with here is: Shall those beautiful gentlemen be combined with the current crap and fit in the army scheme or would you like to keep rider and mount together for nostalgia (or for another obvious reason: not lowering the value)?

Post by: mr chumley warner on February 23, 2012, 03:27:50 PM

I think they were made for comedic value by Marauder, and never released in shops for sale because the steeds are so small.

Correct me if I'm wrong but weren't warhorses in the middle ages rather small... most tapestries like show knights with their feet practically dragging on the ground.

Quote
Analysis of existing horse armour located in the Royal Armouries indicates the equipment was originally worn by horses of 15 to 16 hands (60 to 64 inches (150 to 160 cm)) -wikipedia

Anywho those minies are awesome to the max!

Not entirely true. They ha to be pretty strong to be able to carry all the weight of the knight in armor and their own barding. If we follow the idea that a horse cannot carry more than 30% of their own weight they had to be pretty big. (link with XVth armor)

That's true, but rich people had less stuff to buy too. No TV, no tablets, no sport cars, no wargaming.... an armour was considered a good asset for everybody that could afford one.

And BTW great collection, I love it!

Now I'm as big an Empire fan boi as you'll come across and have a massive desire for OOP figures. However these knights aren't to my taste despite their rarity. The look far too small and wide with the horses heads being a parody of a horse. I'm glad your pleased with your purchase though ;(

I think you've done a great paintjob.

However you may have answered your own question about why you have never seen them painted on the interweb ..............

Seeing the knight seated does make the horses look particularly small and they would make great mounts for halflings or dwarfs.
Seriously though could anyone use them that way knowing their 'sale' value.


Title: Re: Chumley Warner Empire Images - 2 painted MM66 Knights.

Paintjob is good, but yeah, they really are comically small. Still, all that matters is that you're happy doing them.

I will probably use at least one of mine in that capacity (it helps that I don't have the knights). But I will refrain from converting them just in case.  :engel:

I use as much water as possible.

To the point where it's just about settling on the model without forming water droplets,

eg. the crux point at which uniform coats break apart,

too much water and you know about it, because you can't get a coat on without it breaking up

i probably paint everything with at least 50% water addition,

thin and quick, hair dryer, then more washes, hair dryer, then more wash!

then purity seal,

then quick highlights with very thin brush

then quick basing,

job done ,

speed speed speed

Ok so the bidding got intense,

someone tried a last minute snipe, but I had stacked my bid high as a buffer.

So I won 20 Kislev Winged Lancers, 1 Boris on Bear.

9 Seperate metal bear mounts, lots of horses and the Kislev book.

£165 inc postage.....

=====================

I will have to sell some of these back on e ebay ,

I'll probably keep and paint 5 bear riding Lancers and Boris,

Maybe 5 normal lancers on horse,

and sell 11 lancers + 4 bears

plus the 7 i already have = 18 lancers to sell i guess

LOL

I have a feeling the metal bear steeds were Kislev , but only available in the rear of the old catalogue's , not in shops etc

only steve B can confirm!

ive seen he has like 80 of them!

all my holiday is allocated this year, 2 stag do's 2 weddings, 1 week in Cyprus, and 1 week tbd in europe, then xmas manditory factory down time,

i'll have to arrange a UK game event

lol

maybe in my garage

2 vs 2 empire against evil

That's a shame, all your stuff looks great and I'd love to fight against it!

You should try and get some time off around end of april/early may every year. The eurobash is always great fun. Beer and warhammer for 3 days... and Soth is really the finest host ever.

Yes.  There were never any specific Kislev troop bears, only the Tsar Boris model.

Having said that, the Wood Elf ones were often used for Kislev conversions

LMAO at your calling it the "finew*nk version", although I will probably find myself using said models. I will be buying them for as cheap as I can get, no way am I paying GW hobby center prices if I can help it. The reason I will be getting them?! Weight!! Back when most of my characters were metal, as were my 20+ greatswords, pistoliers and helblaster, my gaming bag used to feel like it weighed a ton!!

Is it the B&Q value stuff? Thats what I use and its bloody awesome. Not quite as good as Nitromors but less than half the price. Needs a good clean with a toothbrush afterwards though and can't be used on plastic as you end up with a pile of goo.

Hi, I like the result you achieved on the armor with the turquoise wash. It's really nice but I don't know how much it fits the model. I think that it is too decadent for a miniature like that. It's an imperial knight with colored feathers on a really colorful horse, I think he takes care of his armor and avoid it deteriorating like that. I would see that effect more on some Undead or Chaos knight than on shiny imperial noblemen...
But that's my opinion, and the painting stays spectacular no matter what!! Great Job

I could trade for some OOP 1987 Reiksguard Knights, 2 of the old schoooool ones and horses, or a Kislev lancer Sergent with mace on horse,

also i could throw in 4 metal Landsknechts from some new company recommended on WE, cant recall name, they look awesome. Also I have 3 bizarre unknown flagellant metal models I found on e bay when drunk,

Indeed.  Size wise, it almost looks like you could fit a demigryph on a normal cav base for a super cool character...  I'm still annoyed beyond belief that the TGM can't ride one... Grr....

That aside, I'm looking forward to your paint job, Chum!

Demigryphs would just about fit on cav base, but don't think they would rank up that well.  For me as a collector more than a player, I don't care much about the rules, only whether thematically any models I do are sufficiently Empire enough

It is very unlikely any character will ride a monstrous mount because of the complexities of the additional wounds; the advantage gained by a Demigryph would simply be the attacks of the mount. Have ANY army book had the option to put a character on the back of a monstrous mount?

Fair point - but that is a legacy. In any case, my question was poorly phrased (for which I apologize); have army books had the option to put a character on a montrous mount which is found in the rank-and-file unit entries? That is, is there an option to put a character in a unit of monstrous cavalry mounted on the same sort of animal, or is it a fudge?

Personally, I would LOVE to see characters on MC and I don't think it would be too difficult to work it out - use the highest of the two W characteristics? How does it work for Pegasus? BUT it might end up being expensive to fit a character on there if the W bonus is lesser. There was a discussion thread that a Demigryph would be worth about 55pts to a character - you could get a whole other DGK for a little more, right?

Post by: Fandir Nightshade on April 12, 2012, 02:01:27 PM
I think you pay 50ish points for a demonic mount.

You use the lower Toughness and this makes Eagle riders of the Elves less awesome than Pegasus riders.

You use the higher of the 2 wounds profiles and the rider's toughness I believe. 

Honestly, 45-50-ish (45 naked, 50 with barding maybe) is probably right around the right number for a character's demigryph mount.  That means the rider is worth roughly 10 points in the unit, which seems pretty fair.

So I bought the Luminark Kit and assembled the wagon.

The detail is amazing, the model glides together , it's genius.

The horses are excellent also, I'm thinking I could do with 20 of them.

The only issue is that I can see it taking me 20 hours to paint, even using my hair dryer speed paint cheating.

So I pitty people who are slower , it could take people days to finish, and will leave a lot of people abandoning the project, especially younger ones, school age etc...

Especially considering it's only actually 120 pts.

Anyway , hats off it's a superb model.
