I finally got my new camera working more to my liking. By far this is looking better than my first attempt. Bigger and far more crisp to look at I think. I also took the liberty to add a few more flourishes in the presentation.

I'm really starting to like my tablet. I owe allot of thanks for how nice the imposed hammer view looks to that little guy. Would have taken me forever by mouse. :D

Thank you! :)

Unfortunately, work and classes lately have been keeping me from getting any real work done painting my models. But with classes done now, I'm hoping to get some more done.

I've even got a step by step planned for how I do my painting in the works. It's just taking more time then I thought to put together a layout. But hopefully I should have something to put up soon.

Uff I understand you completely... I wanted to do step by steps on everything I did new, but it's just so much work and interrupts painting the actual mini, that I gave up! hehehe

It would be nice to see what you come up with though :)

Oh, this is a difficult piece to comment on.
Firstly because you are a friend and I want to write something really useful to you, and secondly because I know the story beyond it :heart:

The sculpture is simply perfect and I love the detailed way it was colored. I like particularly the mantel, because it looks so realistic.. It seems that breeze is moving it :)
The only "problem" is that the camera has ruined the macros on details. It's a pity, because I'm sure that they are amazingly painted!

The photo part of this is something that has been something I wondered about. I really need to refine a good way to photograph the models.

Aye. You northerners might have to fend off a few marauding Norscans now and then, but you haven't got the entire Black Fire Pass and Badlands full of slavering Greenskins and Sigmar-knows-what in your backyard. ;P

I see you happened to neglect the foul forces of the Beastmen that prowl Drakwald forest. Or of the Elves... both the feral Wood Elves of Laurelorn, and the Dark Elves that also plunder our shores. :D

The detailwork is beyond intricate, and i am generally just baffled how much time can be spent on a model as this. You must have a very steady hand and good patience. Awesome job!
My only critique, if i may, is that the face is somewhat covered up by the photograph angle, wich is a shame as i am sure it looks on par with the rest of the model.

Thank you for the comment, Gnatsies!

I really appreciate the feedback. And yeah, I agree, I could have done better for the face shots. But no matter what way I turned or tilted the model back when I did those photos, I couldn't get a decent shot of his face. I've had a few upgrades since then, so hopefully if I ever do anymore like him, I won't have the same problem. :)

I like how you painted the grooves on his helmet plume. I would have just made it solid colour, let the shadows do all the work, and call it a day. You have a great eye for the little details.

Those feathers really gave me some trouble. I hadn't done anything that detailed in an off white feather plume before. So I'm really glad to hear that it came out alright.

And thank you for the great comments!
