    Where last we left off, people were discussing stripping paint from models.

    Awesome ork fex, Jair. The goblin is a really nice touch.

    A question, if I may: Is there any reason I can't drill out a large cannon barrel and maybe glue a little shell at the bottom to keep there from being just a big flat patch at the bottom? I've only ever seen relatively small guns being drilled out, and I'm looking at getting a model I think might look good with a drilled out cannon (Darius, from Warmachine) if there isn't some structural reason not to do so.

    Yes, and yes.
    I don't see why you couldn't do that with a cannon, as long as it stays structurally sound...

    Darius being pewter will make it harder, but I have drilled out the bigger cannon of the defender. Shouldn't be impossible.

    I think the problem is the posture. Everything else is perfectly fine - more than that, even, I'd say - but the posture is rather bland and non-dynamic.

    I may as well shamelessly use this opportunity to re-post my own Farseer, as I think it was kinda lost in the whole "stripping of models"-discussion.

    Is there an accepted means of boring a hole that big in pewter? I'd think to use a drill press with a series of bits gradually increasing in diameter, slowly and with water, and clamp the part in multiple layers of foam, but that's probably silly.

    Default Re: The Warhammer Models Thread II: A Brush With Death

    To answer your concerns:
    -Since I use a hand press, I didn't need a clamp or foam buffering.
    -Pewter is soft enough that as long as you go slow (use low rpm) You don't need lubrication to prevent warping (although it still helps).
    -Any drill designed for wood will be sturdy enough for the pewter/lead models.

    If go to do it, start much smaller then you need and widen it with bigger drill bits in succession. I only done it a few times, others might have better instructions.

    My mind is vexed. I'm currently practicing my painting skills on space marines from the Assault on Black Reach starter box and I had planned to stat a "real" army of Dark Eldar after I'd gained some more experience painting, but now I'm tempted to switch to Warhammer Fantasy instead (mostly because I might actually get to use those miniatues as well in my D&D games), what to do?

    Is there any reason you can't simply use DE minis in D&D? The Beastmaster set in particular could work as aberrations, and Wyches don't have anything that would seem out of place to me.

    Yeah, it was freehand.

    On the jetbike, it was done by stippling, just like on my Fire Prism (by now, I have two Fire Prisms as well as a dozen guardian jetbikes in the same style). On the "lance" (actually a self-made Singing Spear) it was done by simply painting with both different colours on two adjacent spots of the lance at a time, and then blending them together by brushing over them before they could dry, same as how I did all my Wood Elves.

    Well then you know what to focus on. I actually think it is a little sad as so many of your models are really great, but others are ruined by flatness.
    Also some of your wood elves seem to have a lack of... eyes.

    I actually plan to practice just that on the Grey Knights I will be working on now; I intend some pretty heavy shading/highlighting work on those.

    Yeah, I know; I still plan to go over all of my models once and, firstly, fix all the eyes (I kinda forgot that step on the first dozen models or so, and then, after I'd realized it, I didn't feel like correcting it on all of them, so I'll do it at some future point in one go; I also intend to add some more details to their bases, grass mostly.

    collect both! its what i did

    on a more economic note since you already have the WH40K start with it, see if you like it. then see where you want to go from there.

    My current 'plan'/resolution is to paint one thing from my choice army and then one thing from anywhere else.

    The trouble with Warhammer Fantasy is while having a few Dark Elves or Chaos Warriors or Skeletons is handy for D&D and whatever else - a unit of troops in that game requires you to paint over 15 of one thing.

    So whatever army you collect you'll be bored of the figures after the first regiment.

    Okay I have a pretty good idea of the sorts of things I'd do for various BA dreads now.

    For Death company one done up with a long trailing hair and Zangetsu paint scheme and a second with one arm being a converted force weapon done up like a lance, with a cloak and Gloucester paint scheme.

    For Furiosos
    -Guren paint cheme on one with 2 blood talons/fists.
    -Mordred paint scheme for one with the big arm cannon
    -Galahad paint scheme for the Libby, replacing the standard force weapon with a Soul Grinder's sword.

    In general using converted fronts so they all have heads (likely using Librarian/DC/Venerable sarcophogi as the base for them) and if I ever go for Storm ravens would likely go for an orange and green paint scheme in the styl of the Siegried

    Oh, right. The Lawn chairs. My camera is much easier to work with in natural light, and the lawn chairs were the only flat surface available.

    And I do have previous attempts at painting somewhere from around that age, it's just I never had the patience to finish. One thing that's nice about necrons; The base is all one color.
