Jigged the website around a bit and have uploaded my rough excel sheets that I use for unit templates and cheet sheets, they are messy AF as I CBA to format them for public use.
But feel free to rob them if they are of use.25/09/2021 at 12:52 #16226726/09/2021 at 15:43 #162276
Neat – will you add a ruined section at all?26/09/2021 at 15:47 #16227729/09/2021 at 09:22 #162383
Added and updated a 10mm fantasy resource page to the AB site:10/10/2021 at 15:57 #162916
I have been pondering an undead army, cos A: cool, and B: quick to paint.
I did some undead for Samantha’s wizard to summon using magyks and whilst quick, it would still mean painting a few hundred models for an army.
Then I read about GW Contrast Paint: Skeleton Horde.
You are meant to use wraith bone undercoat and then use the contrast paint.
I don’t have wraith bone so went for bright ass white.
So here are 2 images of the contrast skelly bone.
The model in the middle had a drybrush of bone over the top, to help make it seem less flat.
The other 2 are just plain old contrast paint.
I prefer the look my old method gave me, but those are about 10 minutes a figure, where as these 3 figures took 15 minutes, which is enough of a time saving for the drop in appearance.10/10/2021 at 16:03 #16291710/10/2021 at 16:25 #162919
You say that as though it’s a bad thing. There ALWAYS has to be an Undead Army.10/10/2021 at 16:40 #162920ian pillayParticipant
The middle one looks good. I’ve been trying a grey base coat with dark brown wash and then a white dry brush. I will see if I can upload a pic.

People say James is a hoary old giant beholden to none, but the truth is, he has a soft heart – deep down, James is a giant peach.11/10/2021 at 19:53 #16298912/10/2021 at 13:18 #16304112/10/2021 at 13:31 #163043AlexParticipant
Lovely walls! (And the giant is ace too!)

Walls are excellent, nice and solid. The giant is a great model too, great brushwork.
As for the skeletons, I think I would spend the extra time anyway and go for the drybrush on top of the contrast paint. It just looks that much better.13/10/2021 at 09:19 #163113

Thanks even with my crap photography skills you can make out some of the nice blending I managed to get on the skin.14/10/2021 at 08:13 #16317715/10/2021 at 14:16 #16329317/10/2021 at 17:04 #16340017/10/2021 at 18:27 #163403
Well that’s a subtle gun to say the least!18/10/2021 at 17:33 #163463
You have been busy Mike.
So much cool stuff!
Especially the castle walls, can’t wait to see them in a setup with your town.18/10/2021 at 17:36 #163465

Cheers, I suspect that could be a while, especially with the weather going damp.
I spray the models outside mostly so that is a pain, that and the colder wetter weather tends to sap my enthuisiasm.
Fingers crossed though!!
You given up on your 10mm for now?18/10/2021 at 17:36 #163466

Gotta be in it to win it!

I always see the cold and damp weather as an excuse to stay in and paint miniatures. But I can understand how it can sap the enthusiasm as well.
You given up on your 10mm for now?
I’m taking a break from them as I work on the orcs & goblins. Saying that…
Looking at your stuff is inspiring me to do a little more work on them, so I will probably flip between projects as and when I feel like it.18/10/2021 at 20:30 #163480

Nice. Avon calling.
We get slapped around, but we have a good time!25/10/2021 at 14:19 #163783
Great work Mike!
Especially the diorama base and the way the crew blend in so well with it, even though they are on separate bases.
Have you named it?25/10/2021 at 15:20 #16378526/10/2021 at 14:08 #16383326/10/2021 at 19:49 #163853Steve JohnsonParticipant
Great work Michael!!!27/10/2021 at 05:28 #163864mark leslieParticipant
Love the resulting ‘little’ diorama. Sure needs a proud name – how about Sigmars Hammer?
Sounds fit for official records, but I’m sure the crew (and the ladies) may have a more colourful moniker for it.
Fossilizing nicely.27/10/2021 at 11:47 #16387728/10/2021 at 06:41 #163915Wouter WolputParticipant
What a monster, the sound must be deafening.
A great model! Loving all the details.
