Skorne Battlebox - Privateer Press. Pic heavy.

Recommended Posts

I'm hooked on WarmaHordes, and picked Skorne as my faction. I spent way too long painting these, wanting to do my best. Ironically, I think that stress led to worse paint jobs! Anyway, here they are varnished and all.

 

Master Tormentor Morghul. Pretty fun to paint (and play). Before he gets knocked down and killed that is  :angry:

The big guy is a Titan, really a trunk-less elephant with two extra arms. They hit pretty hard, and run sort of slow. Before we start whipping them. Or rushing them, Or all of it! Mahaha!

Cyclopses! Pretty clever for warbeasts.

Up close of the bases. Green stuff, Happy Seppuku stamps and stones. These are the most differently painted ones, I think I'l go with a look closer to the left one for the rest of the army.

They are a BEAUTIFULLY painted & based Crew of Nasties. I really like the colors you chose; they suit the minis SPLENDIDLY. GREAT WORK!

Nice work on these! Skorne are a pretty cool faction, one of my friends plays them and his titans have frequently stomped my Legion into the ground...we're about 50/50 on games at this point.

 

Your battlegroup here should show up well on the table, and that's the main thing you're after. I think the purples could use a bit more contrast (higher highlights/deeper shadows), but I really like the way the purple looks with the red and gold. I'd be happy to field this force, paint-wise. And you can't beat the happy seppuku stuff for making nice, detailed, consistent bases. Those look great!

 

(as an aside, since I'm a hopeless pedant, the plural of "cyclops" is "cyclopes," pronounced with a long E in the last syllable. It's a word I've always thought was pretty cool. /pedant)

The PP bases really work well with HS, being lipped!

 

Yup, a bit more contrast would be nice. I'm basecoating in the shade color on my PGBH's, to se if I'll pump it up a bit :)

(Fixed)

      This is a Games workshop Mumak  miniature that I bought used here awhile back. It was missing a lot of parts so I did some custom work. Here is the work in progress thread. 
      https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/90512-mumakil-rebuild/
      I interned to get some archers to ride in it in the future but these Uruk will work for the pictures.




      Some 28mm horsemen to help give a sense of size. This is now probably my largest miniature, barely.

       
      Thanks for looking!

      28mm scale resin miniature. Gold & green palette. My biggest issue: not jungly enough. I need more stuff to make plants and credible grass :s

      2nd attempt at creating a steam-punk elephant-women mad-scientist, representing a PC in a game I am running. Since such a model does not exist I made one.
      It consists of the following parts:
      The base model I had printed through HeroForge  I pinched the cables and coils from a warmachines model I found on ebay.  Finished it off with some lightning I had laying around from the previous attempt (I think it was creating action figure dioramas, but I have thrown out the packaging long ago). Nothing on the model is Reaper, but I painted it with Reaper Paints.

      I had a lot of fun trying out all kinds of configurations with poster tack until settling on this combination for the rigging. The only thing it is missing is her faction symbol on the shield, but I wasn't sure how to make a stencil small enough. If any has any technique for adding coat of arms to a models, outside of trying to free hand it, I would to hear it. Here are a few pictures. The other model is for scale, and is just what I had handy.

      I am running a D&D game with my friends using the new Ravnica setting. The world has a very unique look, and one of the player characters in our group is an steampunk/elephant-man/mad-scientist. I couldn't find any miniatures remotely resembling that, so I made my own out of a reaper Avatar of Strength and some warmachines loose pieces I got on ebay for cheap. I have never done any kitbashing or sculpting before (just made it up as I went along) but I feel it turned out pretty cool (even though I am pretty lousy painter). Couldn't wait to show it off a little here, even though the lighting is really bad in here at night for pictures.

      Painted with all the cheap Reaper HD I picked-up during the sale.

      Question, comments, feed-back appreciated.

      Hi guys, and Happy New Year!  I haven't posted in a bit, gonna try to be better about that.  Anywho, here's my latest finish, the Elephant Avatar from the Bones 3 Kickstarter.  I started this guy in probably October last year, but kind of lost my mojo on him, and he sat on my shelf of shame for quite awhile.  This year, I decided to clear out the shelf of shame, so I finished him up.  I'm pretty pleased with him.  Let me know what you think!
