Men of Averland
« on: February 03, 2010, 02:25:55 PM »
Hi everybody!

This is my first post ever on any kind of forum, so this is all very new and unexplored ground for me, but anyway..here I go.

I have been involved in the hobby for almost ten years, during witch i have never managed to paint upp to more then one unit for an army. Something else new and exiting always came up to spoil my planes for the curent army I was building. But now this i all going to change.

Here are the first (in diffrerent stages of completion) miniatures in my Averland army.

Thanx

If that banner is freehand (and it looks to be) it is impressive. Most impressive to me though is that halflings skin tones, very nice! Look forward to seeing more!

WOW

What can I say, the BSB is just made of pure awesome.

The General conversion is equally good and may well redefine the word "brilliant" if it gets as good a paint job as the BSB and Halfling.

and man, the mootfolk are getting some love at the moment arent they  :::cheers:::

thanks for posting and making me feel ashamed of my own stuff ;)  :icon_lol: :::cheers:::

Wonderful banner, and I love the hobbit. Keep pics coming!
Hobbits are stupid, Talabecs are thieves and Averlanders reek of horse shit.

Keep going. This is going to be a very popular blog.  8-)

That halfling is even better than the battle standard... just the level of painting... but I know everything you put up is going to be amazing.

I especially like the unit champion (so this is no bsb....it is a regular regimental standard?  :Ohmy:)

anyhow the champion has a .....

"bring it on bitch!" air about him.

signing in to your blog.
 
Welcome to the forum.
 
Hoping to see your army grow over the next year or so...
 
About the lighting : Use at least two and preferably 3 desklights (top,L,R), a nice background and no flash.

The new greatswords are very nice. I've been loving putting them together and painting them. If you get them as part of the brigade too, it doens't hurt so much  :wink:.

Yetagain thank you for the positive feedback!
And Lord Soth for the photo advice, I do think these ones look better!

Whitout futher ado, my warriorpriest (who is yet to receive a name):
A simple headswap from with a head from the greatsword plastics and change of hammer with the new one taken from the new captain of the empire pointing a pistol! :Ohmy:
