Really great paint job. I am not a fan of the color selection, a bit too vivid for an assassin (looks like one too me :) ) But technically he is very good!

Yeah...thats realy nice! ...however I am still not sure about light on a hood as Nameless said. And red on the backside(skirt) should have more light too, because it floats a little bit. but its just my opinion from photos ... overall great work ;)

thanks guys :)

Red cloth pieces are still on my to do list but since I want to enter him in a competition I decided to "skecht" everything as good as possible (not much time left... hehe :mrgreen:). Will be working on his base now and once that's done I will work on my to-do's (this should hopefully also give me a better overview where to add lights/shadows). ;)

First base WIP:

Had some trouble "glueing" the wall onto the plinth... hope it will stay where it is once the Milliput dries. I also have to fix some spots on the floor like the transition between the wall and floor but I'll do that tomorrow once everything's dry. :)

Unfortunately I had some problems with that base so I had to re-do the whole thing :(

What happened: After adding some pva glue mixed with baking soda to create some grout almost all the definition and structure of the floor was gone. So it would have been a pain to paint and probably wouldn't look as good. Therefore I decided to re-do the whole base. :D

I didn't have another plinth in that particular size around so I had to modify the one I screwed up. First thing needed to was to get rid of the milliput. Not an easy task when it's already rock-hard. My choice fell on cutting off the upper part of the plinth and that's how it looked like after the operation:

My plan was to rebuild the plinth with plaster 'cause as you can see there wasn't much left of it. ;) In order to support the plaster and give it something to hold on to I drilled some holes in the plint and also glued some paper-clips in random places:

Now I cut out a form shaped like the plinth + wall from plasticcard and glued/fixed it onto the plinth. I thought I took some pictures of that step but it seems like I didn't or lost it - sry for that - but here's how the plinth looked after removing the plasticcards:

Fun part incoming... scratching alle the little stones in the plaster *yay*... not. After 1.5h the floor was done:

Moving onto the wall and stairs... another 2hours later I was finally done (I also added some damage and irregularities to the stones):

Last but not least (primed and basecoated):

Besides the plinth I also started to work a bit on my next project, Princess of Night from Nocturna. With all that happened I needed a break from Dark Elfs base, didn't do much yet because I want to finish the Elf first but the base got a first rough sketch:

Wall hasn't been touched on the picture ;) It was stil just the basecoat so don't worry already started glazing, highlighting and shading. :)
