well ive done a bit more to the mage, got the front of the cloak finished off, picture isnt great though and its removed quite a bit of the shading that ive done and is a bit too zoomed in, may use a friends lamp tomorrow and see if that improves the images as this image isnt very flattering.

They will have to make SH's better now after seeing yours.
And that AM cloak is just absolutely amazing!
Keep it up!

just a quick update on the mage, have finished the image on the back of the cloak, which i eventually decided on being a phoenix, it took me a long time to decide what it should be. Anyway still need to shade the purple on the cloak, but thought it would be worth putting a pic up of the WIP.
once ive finished the cloak ill attempt to take a better quality picture.
p.s thanks swift i am proud of the SH's and the cape is my pride and joy right now. :D
p.p.s CM yes it is all NMM, its getting easier with practice

Loving the mage, I agree, you should definitely enter something competitive wise. If you dont mind me asking, what are the gem colours? I think they might fit better than my current green gems.

the gems are the old scaly green that i found lying around, just lightened with white, quite simple really.
It would be nice to enter a competition, i will consider it for the future.

If anyone would like to help me out for my 'being able to feed myself next year once I dont have a student loan and my parents to fall back on fund'. please take a look at my ebay auctions.
High Elf Mage
Battle Wizard
Lore of Death Battle Wizard

On another note, i think i may finish the silerhelms soon, and i definatly wont be selling them (unless the price is right :roll: )

I know your pain with the lack of student finance next year, but I very much want to bid... you've left me in a bit of a dilemma!

well ive got to the point now where ive realised that i just enjoy painting for the sake of it. At the moment im just trying out painting as many different models as I can, generally going for the ones that I think look good. currently im giving some 40k models a try.

Cheekily I painted one of my housemates big orc meks he'd left lying around, then I got myself some sanguinary guard, which are some of the new blood angels, simply because I think they look stunning. Both these models required a lot of metallics which ive never really done before, but i think they came out great. Got a nice box of space wolves to do now!
So Pictures.

Now that is indeed something different. :) Good job. I especially like the power weapons! Maybe I'll try something similar for a magic sword in WFB. Just a bit darker.

Hello all... Basically using this thread to show anything I paint, unfortunatly high elves have moved to the back of the que as ive found I really enjoy painting 40k. As mentioned in my last post I got me some space wolves, and here is them all painted up, also got some tanks on the way, so should be a good force soon. It does turn out that im still not fantastic at taking pictures yet.

First my only HQ Ragnar Blackmane
ImageImageImage

Dreadnought
ImageImageImageImage

Drop Pod
ImageImageImageImage

Scouts

ImageImage

Blood fangs, and Grey hunters
ImageImageImageImage

The lot
ImageImage

Once finished i will be selling off the whole army on ebay, so if you want a high quality 40k army this'll be the place to look. When Ive finished I'll also try and take some better quality pictures of the whole bunch to put up.

Hey, any chance you could update the links? Looks like Photobucket dumped your elves for bandwidth? Too bad, too :( Your Space Wolves look amazing!
