Hi guys

Some more work done on my Dwarven army and a group of adventure Dwarves, most are Oathmark, used some converted Warlord games Vikings to make most of the archers, I have some GW Dwarves I can add to the force by lengthening their legs, or I can keep using the WG Vikings, which blend in really nice, I will play around with the GW Dwarves and see what I can do, these are ready to base, square or round? I will leave the adventure Dwarves at this height, they are a lot shorter than the Oathmarks but they have their own charm, the humans are for scale comparison.

Hi guys

A Fantasy commission complete, I don't get many fantasy commissions, doing mostly historicals, its good for a change occasionally, these are a mix of manufacturers, some are resin and plastic GW figures, I really dislike GW resin figures, they seem very fragile to me, the Elven cav in particular are terrible, nice detail though, I do like the plastic beastmen though, will need to get some of those for myself.

I like your take on the Sisters of Sigmar.  Very medieval-looking (no chainmail bikinis).

Indeed, it really hurts when you catch a nipple (or worse!) in one (so I hear) - nice work on the conversions  :)

Hi guys

ADVICE NEEDED

I'm always looking to improve, I have some questions re these figures, they are not 100% finished, theres some small details I need to complete, but looking for overall advise on how I can make them look better, how to go to the next level, this is my style, are some styles better than others? do some styles have a better upper limit? will I need to change styles to improve or can I get better at this style? On my blog there are heaps of closer pics.

1) How do I improve these figs? Go to the next level?

2) is the colour pallet OK? I love teal, but does it work here, teal and black?

3) anything overall that I could do to improve?

4) specifically the faces, any suggestions to improve?

5) how would you rate them out of 10?

6) do they work as a warband? are they to similar/uniform for the subject matter?

They look good to me generally really like the basing. I'm honestly not sold on the teal I feel like its a bit bright for the subject matter. Witch hunters to my mind should be dark and foreboding I would have been tempted by a dark red (like a burgundy), dark blue or a dark purple. Another option is lots of blacks highlighted in a combination of warm and cold greys to give variation. I do the same as you and try to tie in warbands/armies with limited colour pallets so I get what your trying to do but the teal seems to overly dominate the group shot in slightly jarring way to my eye. Hope that doesn't sound harsh I generally avoid critiquing other peoples work but as you asked.

No, thatís fair, what about a darker teal?  have a look at the edging on the warrior priests robes, Iím sort of on the same page as you, I might think about dark red, I have the Sisters if Sigmar band, was going to do a dark red/cream colour with them, could do teal/cream for them and black/dark red for these guys, Iíll give it some thought.

Yeah teal for the sisters of sigmar with a pale contrast colour would work. They , at least to me, suit a light bright colour schene being a force of good light in a dark world. Witch Hunters to me are always a dark grim breed so opposite to chaos they almost close the circle from the other direction and just suit dark sombre colours.
