  1. A little more greenstuff work on my last four hearthguard.
  2. I've spent the last couple weeks taking stock of the models I've already painted for this warband and fixing some of its aspects that aren't working for me. I started by slightly darkening the shade of blue on their robes and headscarves and adding a bit more shading to the recesses. I also changed the color of their skin tone. I really wanted the models to have a very dark skin tone, more Sub-Saharan (like the Sub-Saharan troops of the Almoravid armies than reinforced the Taifa states in the 11th century) than Saharan, but my painting skills just aren't up the task. My very dark ski
  3. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1512883212323934/permalink/2936196379992603/ That's a lot of Sarrisas! Love the pics the author posted.
  4. These minis are both random AND awesome. They match this thread's title, perfectly.
  5. Yup. That's who the model reminds me of.
  6. Here's my third Biped Creature. The big, gold sword clearly identifies him as the leader of my Araby Ogres. If you look closely, you will see a big brown blob of paint on the sword's cross-guard. I didn't notice it until after I had cropped and resized the photo. I have no idea where it came from. I suspect that my 7 year old may be the culprit. I have since repainted that portion of the cross-guard, but I'm too lazy to get out my lights and reshoot the model, so I'm posting the photo as-is, blob and all. 🙂
  7. I noticed a paragraph that I missed during my first read through. It states that the other two supplements for the SAGA Universes of Antiquity series will be Age of Alexander and Age of the Caesars. It also states that all the factions in Universes of Antiquity "can battle each other without any concerns over balance". Studio Tomahawk's plan for a 3-Book Universes of Antiquity series may explain why Age of Hannibal as only 6 factions when, excluding Age of Magic, the previously published supplements (Universes) each have 10+ factions.
  8. Thanks guys. I'm not too happy with how the wood grain turned out. It's too dark and too thick. After I posted the photo, glazed all the wood parts with a thin glaze of Army Painter's Soft Tone. That darkened the highlights so the contrast between the wood grain and the surrounding wood isn't so stark. I'm still not thrilled with the final product, but it is what it is. My Atlantis Miniatures' Sphinx arrived the same day as the Westfalia ogre runt. I am very please with the quality of the cast and the sharpness of the details. I only hope that my painting skills can do th
  9. The problem is not only the model’s height, but all of its proportions. Lengthening the legs and broadening the chest would still leave the model with skinny arms and undersized hands, feet, and head. Correcting everything would essentially leave the entire model encased in green stuff with small bits of the original resin poking through here and there. Unfortunately, this fella is going into one of my many boxes of unpainted minis and the Avatars of War ogre khan gets to rejoin his Araby ogre buddies
  10. I’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is that my order from Westfalia Miniatures arrived lightning quick -six days from my order date. Also, the quality of the miniature is excellent. I will certainly be buying from Westfalia again. The bad news is that the model is not suitable for my planned purpose. As you can see, in comparison to the GW and Avatars of War ogres, the Westfalia ogre looks like the runt of the Araby ogre litter. Such a shame. I really do like this mini.
  11. Here's the second Biped Creature. As I mentioned above, I'm going to hold off on the third Biped Creature until my Westfalia Saracen Ogre arrives. In the meantime, it's time to get to work on my Static Warmachine.
  12. I've started on the second GW Araby Maneater model, which, because I lack imagination, will be painted in an identical color scheme as the first. I've also been taking a good look at the third ogre in order to plan out how I want to paint it. I originally purchased the model, Avatars of War Ogre Khan, to use as an Ogre Bodyguard for my Mordheim Kislev warband (pictured below), and later decided to use it for AoM Moors because it was a model that I had on hand and it looks vaguely "Eastern". This morning, I was doing a Google image search and I stumbled upon this model. It
  13. The model needs another layer or two of highlights, but I’m done fussing with him for now, so I’m moving on the Biped Creature number two.
