Citadel - Dark Elf War Hydra v1

In the last couple of months I've played some games of Oldhammer. From these games I've learned that my army choice options in the monster departement where quite limited. I've got plenty of unpainted monster lead lying around, but the task of painting something bigger than usual always scares me a bit, until today.

Determined and inspired I opened the old lead box and got myself something big to paint. No plan, just straight to work. I followed this airbrush tutorial so I wouldn't have to worry about anything, but painting.

I really surprised myself how quickly I got this thing painted. It took me about 8 hours from start to finish.  Below the results:

Citadel - MD8 Skeleton War Machines

Having finished the Skull Chuckers in a relatively short period. I took it upon myself to finish what was left of the MD8 boxset.

Again, I followed the same painting procedure explained in the (evil) Skeletons - Quick Paint Tutorial post. This allowed me to finish the bones parts rather fast and easy, thank god. 

The chariot is placed on a 100x60 base which I bought from GW. Yeah I know, one of the few usefull products they still have.

The highlights on the robes of Morbius are done with the airbrush. I only needed add some washes to get the results you see in the picture. I'm particulairly happy with his face and robes.

Because my skeleton horde has grown considerably since my last painting efforts I thought to treat you guys with an army shot.

So, whats next? Dark Elves or Undead legion?

Looks familiar doesn't it?

Citadel - Skull Chucker(s)

*cough, cough*, man this place is dusty! Let's bring in some fresh air and open a window. Ah, that's better. Now, where were we?

It's been exactly one whole year since my last post on this blog and about time for another post. I got stuck while working on a regiment of Marauder Dark Elves. Sometimes a game of oldhammer is all you need to rekindle enough inspiration to start painting again.

Instead of continuing with the Dark Elves, I decided to paint something easier. Having enjoyed my previous experience with the skeletons, I decided to paint two Skull Chuckers. One of which is from the original MD8 Skeleton War Machines, and the other I won on ebay some time ago.

I followed the same painting procedure explained in the (evil) Skeletons - Quick Paint Tutorial post. Chances are I'll paint up the rest of the MD8 boxset for my next project.

Below the result of my efforts.
