Username: Evil Space Elves
User ID: u327
Army Title: The Baron's Flying Circus
Troop Entry: A Truckload of Hellions!

I have 5 more coming in the mail. Might include these if I'm feeling frisky...
Minor Progress Shot:

Can't believe I pulled it off:




GAH! Your paint table is making me have fits trying to figure out what is what on the WIPs! I know I know, beggars can't be choosers. I think it has more to do with the grey, the black and the white.


No worries though, the final pictures are clear as can be.

So, the hellions look pretty darn good and the positioning of the weapons does he;lp lend itself to a aggressive feel.
Well done.

Yikes! Hadn't thought about that. The WIP background shot looks like my paint desk: a train wreck! I'll fix that for the next round to preserve your sanity Twisted Evil

All I can say is - dem hellions. I love the contrast between the board and the riders themselves, draws the sight on the board itself long enough so the pale riders can get close enough to lop off the heads of the gawking enemies. Really nice.

I think what I love most about your stuff (all of it, not just these guys) is the contrast between the purple and the metallics, it's a brilliantly subtle brassy kind of colour, once again I'm blown away by one of your squads, no wonder you got best army at that tournament!

Thanks for the complement! The brassy color is stolen from the Cryx method: P3 Blighted Gold, washed with thinned P3 Coal Black and Devlan Mud, highlighted with P3 Brass Balls, final highlight with a jar of Shining Gold from the original Citadel Color set. No joke, that jar of paint is 20 years old and has not gone bad! It's color is far closer to P3's Radiant Platinum than the current version of Shining Gold.
