Crystal Lotus Elves WIP
« on: May 01, 2008, 01:52:42 AM »
These are the first few models for a Crystal Lotus Elves army I'm painting for Joshua. Any feedback is welcome! :)

I should have the Dragonbane models and some of the regular troops up later today.

Nice-very chrystalline.
VeezCon products:  Not as good as if they had been actually produced by a real figure company, but better than using your shoe to proxy with...sort of!

I play Helios, Jade, and Obsidian Serpent, mostly, but I may play these on occasion at my place.  I'm a little closer to my goal of having every Chronopia army available for play en mi casa. 

They look fantastic.  Thanks for the preview.

Those are looking great, especially the Crystal Knights.

I'm painfully slow now at painting, and admittedly, there's no way I could deliver on this army like Brand X is doing.  I need the "not worthy" bowing icon.

More WIP Pictures!

Sorry for the delay. It was an insane weekend over here! The bases haven't been finished yet and no free-hand/decals have been applied yet so be kind! :)


More to hopefully come tonight or tomorrow. The rest of the army should all be finished by tomorrow evening if everything goes smoothly. I will post more pics as soon as I can.

Fan-friggin-tastic.  I totally love them, they look great.  The colors are so vibrant, they are perfect as Crystal Lotus.

I am really reconsidering having you do some work for me.

Here are some more pics to look at!

They haven't been fully based either. When they're finished, they will match the basing for the Firstborn that was previously painted.

The biggest compliment comes from Bryon when, in the first game with the Brand X Firstborn he said, "you got your money's worth."

This army looks even better so far.  I like the way the Flying Dragonbane was mounted!!  That really stands out.

The most incredible thing to me is how little instruction I gave to Thomas.  I told him about the ice/crystalline and blue feel, and he just ran with it.  Same thing with the Firstborn.  Red, purple, Roman.  Done.

Whoa.

They'll be at Talamania!!  I can finally write up a card for the Flying Dragonbane.  I've had it assembled for a long time, but never attached to the base.  I'm glad they hooked it up as well as they did; now it's a viable model in the cabinet, instead of a half assembled model of shame.   :-[
