Wardancers are done. I learned a lot about painting skin with these guys. I felt that I got much better from painting the first to the last. I bought a dropper and am watering paint down now, then I go back and highlight. Also, you can see my pink chair in the background.

I put together a bunch of scraps to make an Empire War Altar. I did some decent conversion on the guy. The magic item that I gave him in the game is called the Mace of Helstrom, which is super powerful, so I wanted to try to paint it up like the hammer in the Mark of Chaos video, where the guy prays and the hammer gets charged with the energy from heaven. Didn't do too bad

This weekend, I didn't have anything going on - so I got back into painting and modeling. I got all 12 of my Dryads painted to this level - not sure if i will do more highlighting or not. I need to pick up another box somewhere to complete my list. Also, I started doing the detail work on my High Elves (used as Eternal Guard Unit.)
My idea of making treekin look like creatures of the forest was lambasted by Nietzel. I still like the idea, and have continued modeling them - the sad thing is, he was right and they look kind of gay. So I am making a bunch more tree looking dudes from dowels and greenstuff. The top models are almost complete and the bottom ones, in the beginning stage. These bastards take a long time to make, but still better than paying 15 bucks a pop for them i suppose.

I couldn't resist trying out a piece of wintery terrain. I made a rocky outcropping. I am using something called 'snow-tex' for the snow. It is super easy. It is what old ladies use for giving pinecones and wreaths the snow effect for christmas. It looks like fine-grade cottage cheese. It pastes on and dries in about an hour. It is very easy to work with, and much less messy than the powder stuff that I started with. Anyone want to buy a big-ass jar of fake snowy powder stuff?
2. I want to switch it up and do a winter theme.
3. most importantly - I learned to paint from above the table, or what I
think of as "painting from a distance".
