Doc; Yep, we’re back. The first articles seem to have gone down well, everyone likes seeing some nice well painted stuff, so we’re here to fulfil that need and provide some inspiration. As we said last time we want to look at some other gaming systems, not just 40K, so we’re making a jump to a different system for our first post. It’s Warhammer Fantasy. So it’s not the biggest jump in the world, but you know… baby steps. Introducing Maxxev’s Fantasy Minatures
Shades; Masterowen45 has gone for the opposite approach to me, using one of the Deffkoptas from the Black Reach box set to convert a Trike. Like all the best Orky conversions (in my opinion) what makes this model stand out is the little details, such as the Grot rigga and the Shoulder Squig! These kind of additions really give life to a conversion.
Doc; Working on a Goff paintjob, he’s got a nice finish, with lots of subtle weathering on the plates, with paint showing the metal underneath. They’re all topped (or bottomed) off with some wonderful scenic bases. My only complaint is that the checker design seems a little bit too neat to be from an Ork.
Doc; We’ve also decided, to delve as deep as possible into the BoLS lounge. Going to the back page of the 40K section (July 2009) we found these – Dosadi’s Ulthwe Eldar. (Writer’s comment – According to Path of the Renegade, Eldar from Ulthwe are regarded as “Ulthwenese”)
Shades; Historical gaming has never really taken my interest. I much prefer my futuristic weapons and pyrotechnic magic. However, it never fails to impress me when I see something like this; where someone has created something so firmly based in our own reality, rather than merely mimicking it on sci-fi or fantasy miniatures.
