Hello, as an avid listener and fan of the show I've decided this would be a great place to post up pictures of the models I think are my best painted, for critque. I'm really keen to try and improve every aspect of my painting and modelling, so please be as honest and harsh as you want.
If there's any part of any of these models that isn't doing it for you please let me know and also ideally how I could do better next time. Conversely; if there's anything you like and want to know how I did just ask, I'd be happy to share.
If you want to see more of the rest of my stuff, check out my other blogs on Da Warpath

and Garagehammer forums
The models are shown in roughly in chronological order.
High Elf Mage - I gave this old model a dispel scroll from plastic bolt thrower kit.
Dwarf Lord on Oathstone - I loved the kinglyness of this model just didn't like that he was a slayer with "baby dragon" paraphernalia, so I cut most of it off. He's now part of my brothers Dwarf army.
High Elf Silver Helm Champion - Leader of my second favourite HE unit, practiced freehand. The hawk shield icon is a transfer, the rune is freehand. I love painting horses. (Core Silver Helms in the next book please!)
High Elf White Lions - My favourite HE unit, (although I don't like the basing), I spent ages on these, yellowy photo, sorry.
Night Goblin Shaman - Learned a lot doing the checks on his hood.
Forest Goblin Warboss on Gigantic Spider - What an awesomely technical metal model to make, pinning all of the legs
was quite time consuming!
Squig Hoppers - Boiiing! My favourite O+G unit.
Orc Boss - I randomly gave this model away for free to someone on the internets I've never met. I miss him :(
Orc Boar Chariot with extra crew member - Difficult conversion, I learned quite a bit about working with grenstuff. Inculdes concept "Kiss" inspired eye make up for the boars, I should have sculpted longer tongues. :p
Dwarf Lord with hammer - I had an urge to paint purple with blue and saw this guy cheap on ebay. Inspired by a visit to Warhammer world I wanted to make my models cleaner and brighter. The photos are a little dark, (I need a better camera).
Thats all for now, sorry for such a huge post.
Thanks for looking,
