Not really done a lot of painting since my last blog update on wednesday.
I did get around to repainting/touching up the paintwork of a few Skarloc's Wood elves, and getting most of the Marauder Elf Lord on a Dragon done. I also painted up a giant eagle, and a Dark Elf test model.
My main focus at the end of this week when it comes to miniatures has been sorting out things with an idea to have a workable 3,000 point army list of all the races that I currently have. I did read on someones blog (sorry, I can't remember who's ! ) that they had done this idea too. I think it will give me a plan for painting and whether I need to buy the odd figure here and there.
I would also like to properly start a Brettonian army using the old C26 Citadel minatures, now re-avalible from Wargames Foundry. I am not sure whether to use the orginal army list from Warhammer Armies, or the updated list in White Dwarf #137. The updated list allows for great choice of infantry, but the older list is the one people know about more.
Anyway, in keeping with the idea I had in an earlier blog post of posting that which I have recently painted together with older stuff, here are a few pictures of the what I have got around to painting, as well as photographs of some C23 Ogres I painted a while ago.
Marauder Elf Lord. I have opted for a green Dragon and for green and wood brown equipment to keep a plain and rustic Wood Elven feel.
Close up. I wanted back of the saddle to look wood carved and gilded.
13 Skarloc's Wood Elves.
Glam, the Laughing Warrior, Wood Elf wardancer; and the Skarloc 'The Hooded one' .
Kaia Stormwatch; and Aralane Warskald Wood Elf musician.
Three archers. I am mainly going for a mix of greens and browns.
Three more archers.
Giant Eagle. The elf gives an idea of the size of it.
I am sure this is an old citadel model, but could'nt find details on it.
Dark Elf test model. I painted up this old Marauder Dark Elf as I am looking re-do the army and fancied painting one up. It might seem strange but the base colour for the flesh tone is a mix of white and Vallejo German WWII field grey.
Nearly finished the Grenadier wingless dragon.
A Regiment of ten C23 Ogres.
Marauder/ Bandit Ogre.
Gutlugg Executioner. Always loved his teeth !
Shaman with skull headed mace
