Still got those if anyone wants them?

PM me. Lots of satisfied "customers" so far.

Cheers Bezzo!

And I finally finished painting all my HQ minis (pending two pieces of furniture) with these two Chaos warriors. Painted in Khornate colours as I wanted to experiment with red armour for another future project.

The technique used, with WIP pics is detailed at
http://keyansark.blogspot.com/2010/10/guerreros-del-caos.html

And the final result is this. What do you think: Yellow or Khaki highlights?


And a Family Picture. Smile!

I agree. Awesome looking collection there.

Why does everyone else's Elf have a bow strapped to his back? I'm pretty certain mine don't...

Mi bow is an attachment added from a High Elf sprue. The original Elf has no bow, but I cannot envision a "Dungeon Elf" without a bow  ;D

Fair enough, and I quite agree. Standard issue for all my D&D Elven characters for 30 years now. I should add appropriate weapons to my figures.

Brililant - great minis and superb armour - might have to borrow that!

I always wanted to get hold of the citadel chaos warrior who was very similar but had two axes to give my heroes some grief!

And an oddity of old times sees the light: An Ogre from "Dark World", that I obtained via Bezzo in this forum and now is a part of my HQ collection.

More pics, including a size comparison and other (yet unpainted heroes) can be seen at.

I'd just like to say a warm "thank you" to the OP of this topic. I think I must have referred back to it more than any other. It has inspired me to paint my HQ furniture and I'm having great fun doing it. One of my many weaknesses as a painter is trying to work out which damned colour to paint anything.  So, I have this topic permanently open on my laptop when I'm painting so I can copy what KeyanSark has done and (apart from the rats which I haven't quite got the hang of yet  :'() it's worked very well.

Thanks again, KeyanSark, I'm having fun painting - and that doesn't happen very often.

Following on from my previous post, have you got a pic of the throne painted? As usual, I haven't got a clue what colour to paint it.

Hi!

Thank you all for your comments!  ;)

Today I just managed to finish painting my copy of HQ with the last two pieces of furniture!

The Weapons Rack


and the Fireplace


And more monsters to finish my collection...

Some skaven assassins



Some additional skeletons


And... The Stone Gargoyle!!



It can be used as a stone golem, as an additional golem, or as a cool way to show those moments where the greedy heroes enter a room where a menacing, immobile, statue is located...


... just to discover it comes to life when they try to stole the treasure!!


In fact, it can also be used as an Idol from the Gods of Chaos in that other game that takes place a very long place in the future and has something with hammers  ;D


These two months have been real fun, and I can now proudly show you a full copy of my HQ. I cannot put a direct link to it as it is hosted in blogger, but go to the link below, scroll down all the entry, and clic on the small final image.
http://keyansark.blogspot.com/2010/10/la-culminacion-de-un-proyecto.html

Finally, Doug, sorry I cannot show a pic of the Throne as I decided to leave it unpainted. But have a look to the tables. You can paint it the same way: Earth as base colour, a deep wash of Vallejo Smokey Ink, and some highlight in khaki


Again, thank you all for your comments!

Hey great - I've just started the fireplace. I like your glow effect on the burning wood.

I thought the throne may be more than just a plain wood finish. It looks as though it may be more ornate - perhaps with inlaid work - different wood panels, enamels maybe. Looks like I'll have to do some of my own thinking. Damn.... :o.. ;D

Nice weapons rack, by the way.....

Doug

Damn! Now that I started a new project...  :'(

Right! I'll try to give it a try  ;D
