from what I can glimpse on the pic they look good, but a better photo with your miniatures more in the focus would really be helpful to make an more...... elaborate comment Very Happy

I like that it fits with your dice Smile Basing them would make it so much better, however.

what are you talking about they are based?



I was trying to make it look like polished obsidian. As if they where standing in a building in Commorragh. Its really hard to tell since I made it dark although the cool thing about the base is how it looks in different light. I'll try to take some pictures to show it.

I think the bases would benefit from being made of different slabs of stone, with some kind of lines between them.
As it is now, it looks a bit like it isn't finished.

I see what you mean. When I was working on the first prototype of the base It was down to a one solid like the one on the base and one more like stones or tiles. Asking around at my LGS people preferred the one you see. doesn't bother me too much but it sucks having to make them all non the less. trying to use up my putty since I absolutely hate using it but I dont want to throw it away ether.

An easy way to redo them is to just remove the model from the base and then saw a cross with a razorsaw.

I actually got these by accident. I think i ordered blue-red or something like that but my LGS accidentally got these. So I was like oh okay these are cool so i'll just take them instead.

I like the scheme, and I dig the matching dice too! Smile

I feel so ordinary now having a set of purple and a set of green....

And I always bought matching dice for my armies...I've had it backwards all along! I like the color choices. Bases?

I think the colors are too close to each other on the spectrum.

I like that they have matchnig dice.

My comments would be more shading and more highlighting to help break it up. The blue and the purple seem to blend into one another too much and the gold needs some shading as well.

Even just black lining I think would make a big difference.
