sea.man`s Hell Dorado Les Sarrasins

Post by sea.man » 18 Sep 2010, o 19:30

I hope to succede with yet another tale and there is way too much GW stuff here ;-) Since I have become a big fan of skirmish games I want to try diffrent game system. My choice was Hell Dorado and it`s Saracens warband.
The game is comming back to life and in december there will be new starters released :dance: I would like to have a playable band until the february. So I means I need about 5-6 more minis.
Here is a very early wip, but just to show that I am trying to paint something to finish the tale ;)

Another tale ! :O you're like a painting demon :) it's great that you're pushing yourself to do more projects. Just remember not to let yourself get overwhelmed, but still it is a pleasant sight to see something other than GW, i think my next project after my blood ravens will also be a non-gw thing.

Nice crisp image, looking forward to seeing what you do with this one :D
Getting back into the thick (or rather thin as in thinning my paints) of it, not picked up a brush in some time so this may hurt a bit until I get used to the feel of them again :doh:

This is the first painted miniature for my warband. I think that the contrast in real is much stronger, especially on the trousers.
It takes me too much time to paint one mini, so I will have to change something in painting style. Or maybe paint them 2 or 3 together.
I hope you enjoy it, as much as I have painting Hell Dorado minis :)

I think the trousers are the best part here. The contrast is simply best on them. The skin needs some shading. You highlighted it but it is still missing some shadow...

I agree with Mahon in that the trousers are the best part, but i would say that there is no real focus on his face as the beard/hair looks a little rushed and not as neat as other parts of the model so it detracts your attention away.

Thanks guys! If you say so - I might spend some more time with shading the skin :)
I take photos with dummy camera - Nicon Coolpix - and somehow the focus on the face, beard and hair is lost.

I don't think they meant the pics are out of focus, just that these important parts of the miniature (eg. face) are not eyecatching enough to focus one's attention there.
am I right?
