Paint Table Saturday


Been a busy week hobby wise. Undercoated my LOTR Ruins. Nearly finished my Otherworld Fighter. Then deciding to dig out my other adventurers found the first two dwarfs the varnish had gone opaque............. So they are no sitting in the strip pot. I also decided I no longer like the chunky dungeon bases so have stripped all the base off and start again and done them as my standard figures. Not sure whether they will be grey perhaps they might be a pale brown in colour we shall see!


 This was actually taken Yesterday evening prior to chopping off the base and doing it again. In the pic below you can see he has a new base.



 Stripped Dwarfs and the re-based adventurers. I need to touch up a few figures mainly the ranger and cleric who arms broke off during the base removal process :(  But I'm happier about the more consistent base size it was far to uneven heights depending on when they where bought and based!

The ruins under coated. Not bothered doing the planking yet as there are going to be dry brushed etc

  4. The thinner bases are the way to go, Simon.

    Those OW wardogs are especially nice sculpts IMO.

  12. That knight looks fantastic, great choice of colours for the armour, too - adds to the contrast. The shield seems awfully thick, is it original?
