New pictures of old projects

I simply love how minis look so differently on another picture. I always struggled with pictures so far and now I bought a tripod for my camera. I knew that I needed one just hadn’t got the time and money to buy one ^^ So now I have got one and the pictures are way better. The paintjobs look much better now also.

Dwarf for painting competition

It is time for another painting competition in my local hobby store. Last month I was a judge and this month I can take part again. Exactly perfect timing because this month’s challenge is to pick a simple clan warrior dwarf and turn him into a perfectly painted miniature. Well, we’ll see ^^

This is what I got from the store:1656087_631925323509480_180546914_n

At first I searched in my bit box (which is big for dwarfs because they are the only army I ever started collecting) which parts I like and would love to see on him. I wanted to do something with the beard and give him a beer instead of an axe. I wanted to paint a drunk dwarf in a tavern.


Sadly there are only left hands with beer in them so I needed to take a hand from a standard and convert a little bit more. After finishing the conversion he looked like this (not polished and perfect yet on the picture):



Well, after a month of work in which I had to write some exams and tests here he is, just very quick pictures, good ones to follow and I will post the result of the competition then too, which is on saturday evening.
