Great work!

So I was able to finish the Marksman in 1 sitting. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.

 


Here are the final set of pics for it with the base completed

Thank you. I like this colour scheme for Firstborn minis... 


Here's an update on the War Chariot. I plan on making the base look more like a path or road. The rider has no detail on it's face now but I'll fix that :)

The color combos definately work together nice job.  What are you using for the base "filler"?  I usually use spakle or some other wet work substance and use a bit of water to smooth out the edges.

Looking forward to more updates.

For the base I used a lid from a container of screws and then gave it texture using Poly Urethane. Recycling from work  ;D

No offense intended, but the base looks like it was textured with green cake icing, what with all the little peaks and all!

It's been a while since I've posted any updates. I am now using this thread as a paint log for everything instead of just Firstborn. I have begun work on my new Dwarf and Devout armies.

I couldn't decide between 2 colour schemes so I decided to use both.

Great work as always!

Maybe flickr is blocked by your work network? Try visiting my photostream: http://www.flickr.com/photos/massdistortion/

Here's an update on the Iron Guard I started ages ago but I wasn't comfortable with the blue steel colour scheme I had. I changed it to what's been looking great so far and I can't wait to get a pic with a decent sized army in the same scheme. It reminds me of my Capitol days about 12 years ago, that American army scheme was fun to work with  :o

The close-up shot is an attempt to "show-off" the metallic look I have so far. Base coat of Codex Grey and then I dry-brushed some Boltgun Metal on top. The armour has a more realistic shine to it, which is hard to pick up on my camera with poor lighting :)

I will be changing that gold bonnet to black, it's distracting!

If you do decide to paint the bonnet black I would paint the raised edges of his shoulder guards with the gold color to help balance the gold "edging" on his knee pads/guards. (just my opinion)

I like the color scheme as it's dark in a kinda "noble knight" way.  What color are you going to paint the tassle on his spear weapon?
