I'm done my fire warrior. I had hoped that finishing it would inspire me to do the rest but it has in fact done the opposite.

Next month I'm going to tackle a model I've had sitting around for a long time.

I had better get on it this weekend. The bannerman is complete, but the flag image remains blank. My process is to sketch the image on paper first. Then re-draw it to fit the actual banner size. Then paint over the drawing on paper, to know that I can replicate it on the plastic banner. Finally, I put the brush to the model. At this point, I'm only at stage 2.

I've had good luck drawing the banner design on the actual mini using light pencil then painting over that, might cut down a step for you.

Here's one for an example:

First off this is bannerman prior to applying the image. I tried Scott's gold Vallejo paints for the first time on this. I feel like I could have varied the mid-tone a bit better, but was eager to get on with doing the banner, so left it as is. the true test of the metallics will come on piece that features more surface than just bangles and accents. I also tried soem cross-hatching on the fabric in the place of general highlights. Worked out okay, but will be obscured with what I do next anyway.

So, from there I found this image that is the gate of a dwarf hold in the LOTR online game. I felt that I wanted the banner to appear like a tapestry, rather than a typical icon or runic image. The toughest bit was the wisps of cloud, so it took a few tries and some glazing to soften some of the lines. Had to be careful when sharpening the lines of mountains afterwards, too.

That looks great Kieran! That is a great idea, there are all kinds of suitable dwarf tapestry images in Tolkien's books too.

Don that is an old high elf banner man that I did a few years ago, I was posting him as a proof of concept for Kieran.

Did you copy the image link? If so, paste that link in between the img and the /img.

Sean and I had a game today. My Khorne Daemons destroyed his Orcs and Goblins. More on that later...

When he left at 1, my Khorne Soulgrinder was just primed and I've been painting most of the afternoon. Lots of detail stuff and highlights left to do, but I think I can make it before end of Month:

Wow, i can definitely verify that while my Savage Orks were grinding that model to dust under a flurry of attacks that it was not primed or painted in the least. You must have been working like crazy after i left! Nice job! looks good. Now if only the base wasnt 60 miles wide!

Here's my finished jobber:





I'm happy with the result but can't see myself painting another one any time soon as I did not enjoy any part of the painting process.

That's too bad Nathan as I think that looks really good. I like the colour scheme and the blue offsets nicely.
