the men of the ostermark
« on: May 06, 2009, 09:14:57 AM »
greetings one and all,

I did some work on my state troops of ostermark.
http://griffitscorner.blogspot.com/

I decided to make them all a bit more special as the rest of my troops will be very downscaled and more common looking.

what do you guy's think?

The corpse handler is amazing! It really catches the atmosphere of Warhammer.

The corpse handler is very cool indeed!... A slight critisism would be the lack of detail on the mask, but it doesn't really matter that much, great job and great feel... I wish I owned Blood on the reik...

I just sold those goblins after more than 10 years!

greetings one and all,

It has been a while since I posted.  reason for this was the tower I am working on.  I decided to do the brick work by filing some sprue's.  Gives a great look, seems little work but looks can deceive  :blush:
the roof was made in a similar way just to keep the level of detail.
I still have a lot of work, and with my vacation being over and various other obligations and projects things are progressing rather slow.

Marius said it was some time for painting; and that is what I'll be doing in the coming few weeks.  I already did some test scheme's but quality is not worth showing.  I'll post pix once I'm satisfied with the results.

for now

Very nice.  Like the corpse handler and the Tower.

Great converting here, good to see someone bringing characters from Blood on the Reik to life too.

Keep up the good work and I look forward to some painting.

Cheers,

This is a nice conversion, but the proportions are a it off. 

You've got a big empire body on tiny brettonian legs.  I'm not sure if that's a pistolier torso, or maybe one of the new greatswords, but either way, those guys are gorillas (our free company and cannon mortar crew are also big models).  On the other hand, the brettonain soldiers are very small... even smaller than the 6th ed swordsmen/halberdiers, who run small even by empire standards. 

For this guy, I feel a better set of legs would be the kilted legs from the 5th/6th edition command sprue.  I'm sure there's probably a bunch of people around here who have spares.  They're one of the beefier sets of empire legs, and would look pretty good on this guy.  A spare set of legs from the cannon/mortar sprue would also be properly sized.   

Now all of this is pretty nitpicky.  But then again, I'm a nitpicker.   :icon_mrgreen:

I go to a lot of effort to keep my models reasonably proportioned.  I try to make sure that big arms and heads got onto big bodies, and that smaller bodies get correspondingly smaller parts.  It's a lot of effort sometimes,  but I do find it worthwhile.  It doesn't really show much until you pick up the model for a closer look, so feel free to ignore it if he's going to be buried in a regiment.

Desperately seeking Chaos Warrior heads & Skull banner tops from new empire missle troops sprue.  Will trade for bitz, barter, or $$$.  PM or email me to discuss details.

Maybe the great sword isn't always practical for him to use?  :-P

greetz one and all,

@ pete: I think I corrected the problem in the pix below.  the model was hanging slightley forward; this contributed to the problem; but should be gone now.

@ poet: The second sword to show he is a lieutenant.  Or something like that  :smile2:

Like the conversion -- actually, I know a fellow with really short legs and a normal sized torso, so this looks fine to me.

Greetings one and all,

Again some unpainted work; I did some delving in the unfished box and found an old Mordheim gang I never got done.  Some adjustments here and there and I now have a few Imperial dwarfs for the crossbow and militia unit.  They are made from the old dwarf multipart plastics (the good old days), some green stuff here and there and a few extra imperial bits, et voila.



I’ll try and get some more painting done and some fished models up here by the end of the week.
