World of Twilight Minis

No Vampires.  Just lizards.


These have been sitting on my desk for well over a year now.  I am hoping doing a WIP will help give me the extra push to finish them.  


My desk lamp apparently died today, so I have some really, really terrible photos for you all.  Questions, comments, and criticism  welcome.

Thanks for the support guys.  Y'all are the coolest.  


I did some work on them, but they still have a long way to go.  I cannot blame to terrible photos on a lack light this time.  I just didn't set up properly. 


I am having trouble with 2 items.  First, my thoughts of the weapons.  There is definitely metal in the world, as one of the other fractions I want to do a dirty black/sliver theme  and a more primitive tribe that will likely be without metal, I will try my hand at an obsidian weapons.  I would like to keep this fundamentally differently than those, so I am drawing a blank.   I have toyed with the idea of a coppery/gold.  But I am not sure.  Any thoughts on the weapons colors?


Second the hoof color.  Traditionally, white or a black-brown would be in order.  I think white might not stand out enough and black or dark brown might stand out too much.  They are soldiers and kind of drab, but I don't want them to be boring.  I thought about a more reddish color and giving the riders and footmen a reddish wash when the others will be getting a more brownish.  It would make a nice triad with the yellow mount and blue armor, but then I need a red brown color to still keep it somewhat muted.  Anyways, I am conflicted.  If you have thoughts,  I would love to hear them.


Without further ado,  here are the pictures.  Hopefully you can see some differences.  :)

I shaded everything with a wash/glaze thing.  I have highlighted the skintones, and they are mostly where I want them.  Then I took pictures and realized what a terrible job I did on transitions.  It might get fixed.  It might not.  I have never done an army before and it is quite tedious.   


I am still open to suggestions on hoof color. 


I am still don't think I want a steel metal on those parts, I am open to suggestions on those too.  What do you all think of a shinny copper?


Armor and details remaining in the paint job.  Then I get to decide on basing.

Ok,  These just need a little detailing and the paint job will be done.  Things like eyes and some smaller details on the weapons and such.


Also, I did not think through how to attach these to bases after they were painted.  I don't really know how to do that without messing up a paint job.  Any tips?


One image is a group that were mostly done, but have been upgraded to match the current guys.

My brother thinks the armor needs to look more worn.  So I am going to have to think bout this.  I am while I would still need to do some work on the bronze, I am not sure if I like it or not.  Any comments or critique would be appreciated.  


Anyways these are going on the back burner until I figure out what I want.  Plenty of other things to work on.
