So I have had these, like my menites, painted for a while. Now I am slowly starting to get more done despite a lot of distracting side projects. I thought I would show the models here as well as on my blog. I started these following on from the excellent Brushthralls article on getting the faction box done in ten days. I did that copying what I saw there. I loved the faction so much I couldn't stop! I think an autumnal theme is one that suits the Circle Orboros really well and I try to stick with that. I use green only on the armour and the rest of the models tend to be varied browns.
Kaya was the last model from the faction box I did. I followed the guide fairly well but I still made plenty of mistakes especially with the skin tones.
One of the best tips on the Brushthralls site was forest bases. I have used it almost on every model since. I have atutorial on the way I do it here but it is a pale comparison to the original which had a few other types included. I use this scheme on my Warhammer armies too it is great. I am considering a new scheme for my upcoming Khador but I haven't finalised anything just yet. I like to think of this scheme as continuing the autumnal theme and I don't use a strong green on it. I have blended some lighter brown static flock into the standard green to create a much more dessicated and washed out colour. I think it works fairly well.
This Woldwatcher is one of my more recent models. As I have one already I converted this one a little by moving the arms to give it a better walking pose. It wasn't too hard as the joint give a few good places to cut and reattach the arm in a different position. I really like the Sticks and Stones army and so I have multiples of all the Wolds. I do still need to pick up Megalith though...
