Bugman's Keg Of The Covenent



The mission is to create this wagon with Bugman standing at the front of the cart. In order to do that the barrels need to be placed side-on otherwise there's no room for Bugman.



Some of you might recognise the barrels from the old flame cannon kit, they'll need a lot of greenstuff to plug the gaps.




 The other problem was that to fill the holes in the ends of the barrel. I used plastic shields for this. Which leads to another problem, they were now to wide to fit inside the wheels of the cart. I decided to build a couple of trestles for them to sit on so that the shields were now above the top of the cart wheels.








This was another great exercise in practicing wood grain, trying out a new recipe for a dark brassy colour too.





...and the completed piece.





Cheers,

Mordheim Sisters of Sigmar.

A little departure for me

I quite enjoyed painting these and it was nice to revisit an old imperial dwarf paint scheme as opposed to the red colours used in the box art.

Carts, carts and more carts...

I've done quite a few recently and they have been good fun to do. I've been playing about with woodgrain effects and oil washes and was quite happy with the results.










Cheers, DB

The army is starting to take shape now, the banners help immensely :-)

The inspiration is of course from the great artwork for Storm Warriors.

...and some more.

A black dragon, riderless at the moment but I've got plans to use the old Marauder Sorceress.






And a progress shot of the army so far.. 







Here's what I've been up to since the last post.

Mostly Dark Elves...
