    Well lets see. I have run thru several names with my force. There have been The Hitmen, Demon Dogs, The Dark Dragons, The Spectre Legion, and the Iron Men. The current name (And one I think I will stick with) is Lucifer's Choosen. Since all the members have been either kicked out or left, their nations standing army.

  15. Ok, ok, ok.....I am happy as the rest of you that Warlord is going to the printers, but lets not forget the point of this thread! Lets make with the artwork previews!!!!!!!!!!!
  16. Ok so I got Lurgh Creakleather the other day and I wanted to paint his skin a red tone. Hes going to be a half demon/human assassin (Dont ask) and I wasnted to give him a reddish demon flesh color, but still give him some human color. Should give his skin a basecoat of blood red and then work up from that to color the flesh? Or go with dark flesh and give it a red wash?

    My new toy!

    So I had save up some money and has some gift checks and store credit at a camera store (Really nice pro shop one!) and I go down there yesterday to get a camera. I was going to get the FujiFilm FinePix S3000, but they were sold out and I was sad. But they had the S5000, so my wife spotted me the extra hundred bucks I needed and I was able to get a nice $400 dollar camera for $218, after all my credit and gift check. Score!!!!!!! Here are the stats 10x Fujinon Optical Zoom 6.0 million recording Pixels; 3.1 Million Effective Pixels 4th Gen Super CCD HR QVGA-Quality (30fps) Movie recording with sound TTL contrast multi-zone auto, center point auto, focus lock, continuous auto focus (C-AF), manual focus, AF assist illuminator Shooting modes: Auto, Exposure Combination, Macro, Movie Plus the manual says that it can computer color pictures to make them Black and White!!!!!! How cool is that!!!!!!! I cant wait to start taking pics of my minis!
  18. You know if you use the top from the casket and put it on some logs like in pyre, you could have her at the base with a sword laid across her hands. Kinda like a viking fire type thing. Or you could resculpt her hand so one was hold a broken sword and the other a head, like she was makeing an offering tom her fallen warrior who is on the pyre.....might make a really cool scene! BTW nice job on the dress! First rate!
  19. Any chance of seeing the artwork for the Ice Queen mini thats in the latest previews? Or perhaps a green? pppllleeeaaassseee?
  20. Man, we'll get along just great! 80% of what you listen I love. Not a big Manson fan, but no big deal, because anyone who likes Iron Maiden has to be cool!
  21. So I started downloading some MP3s to my comp and put together a little "backround music" for when I work on my minis. My current play list is: Avantasia - Chalice of Agony Nightwish - End of all Hope Lullacry - Dont Touch the Flame Dream Evil - The Prophecy Lacuna Coil - Heaven's a Lie All of these are hard rock/metal (Lots a speed guitar play ) So what music do you listen too (If any) while you work on your minis?
  22. Well he will be an elf in my game! Update:: I tried alittle of both and I am happy with the result. I did a little drak flesh color from GW where the straps go across the chest and then did some codex grey and black for the first high light and then codex grey for the second highlight. It gave the black that "worn" feeling and not looking like he just bought it. Once I get my digital cmera I'll post pics.
  23. I am painting Colin Coalshadow (see him here in the Warlord Gallery) with all black leather armor. While looking good, its....lacking something. It looks flat. Could I possible with it with a wash of blue ink on the hard leather plates (Chest etc) to give it a little depth? Or would highlights of blue be better? Or something else? Any help would be great! Thanks!
  24. I mean that when you look at the bigger Merc faction in BT, they are seen as governments onto themselves. Jaime Wolf on more than once stood up to House Kurita. Could you see the Red Spades mouthing off to one of the major Governments in CAV? No offence, but if they wanted to, they could crush the Spades like a bug in a matter of a month. The Dragoons at the full capcity could field 5 Regiments. How many regiments are in Cohort? In Btech, Dragoons, Kell Hounds, etc acted like they were one of the Houses. THe Grey Death legion found itself on the wrong end of House Steiner. That was an exception. In CAV its the reverse. Do get me wrong, I love Battletech, but some times they make it seem that anyone with a lance of mechs and a jumpship is a major player. In CAV they make it out to be the way it should be. A business. Pure and simple.
  25. Battletech really painted a rosy picture of the Mercs life. The facts are, everything cost money. A smart commander starting up a merc company would go with energy weapons. Why? No ammo to worry about. I dont how mercs work in the real world, but I believe that most are ex soilders. They've had training and can now carry that over to their "new" job. I could see a new CAV merc going to a small UCOR after leaving military with an offer of "You supply the tools, I'll supply the Muscle for a return of say 40% of our profits. We give you prefence for duty assaignments and in return you help with our supply needs." Now why would a smaller UCOR do this? One, it gives them a semi in house security force, two makes them some money. After a time, when the merc unit is little more stable, they may be able to "buy out" thier contract with cash and perhaps helping train a new security force. Thats just my take on it.
