The old Gods are dead....

Post by OldschoolgameroO » Tue Sep 20, 2016 3:23 am

This is going to be a place holder for my next project.

I have plans for what I want to do on basing, and I have a few ideas on paint scheme, just struggling with how to flesh out the last 6 points.

The idea on the bases will be them marching over the rememant idols of the old gods.

For paint I'm thinking along the lines of this:

Or this:

Though might go with a blue instead of the purple. Getting sick
Of doing purple.

The purple model is beautiful, but I prefer the orange. There's a gritty look with the orange that is interesting and unique. :thumbsup:

ohhh I see great awesomeness on the horizon!

The Cyriss Minis are the only ones i really like from the WarmaHordes Range - tbh (the above are?!?). It is that metropolis appeal i like about them: great movie -> https://www.google.de/search?q=fritz+la ... 80&bih=952

The purple mini remindes me of the work of "tael" - the founder of advanced tau tactica - but like Tape i preffer the mean looking orange one.

Yeah I'm leaning towards the orange glow myself. It's simple yet effective.

Vallejo has a black metal in their air series that I'm going to use as the base if I go that route.

Biggest hurdle on styling now is I need to find male and female he-man dolls to make molds for hydrocal to create the broken statues that will litter the ground.

I'm thinking between the 'white' of the statues and actually going with green grass the model will really pop with either paint scheme.

Vallejo black steel? is a fantastic color. I've used it quite a bit. It's not as dark as I'd prefer, but it's still nice.
On the subject of stuff for statuary, check out garage sales. (The wife might even want to tag along.) They might not have specifically the models you're after, but there might be something else that will work for your idea. Plus it'll be super cheap if you find something. :thumbsup:

So definitely suggest a black base then? It does it even lighten that?

Not garage sales but thought about hitting the thrift store. I've considered that I might not find He-man dolls but may have to settle for using Barbie and Ken dolls instead.
