I finished these guys up back in 2012, but just now got around to taking pictures. The idea was to paint a grim, natural-looking Blood Axe army while limiting myself to old metal models. I'm very pleased with how it came together . . . but I'm absolutely sick of working with metal .

And that's it! Comments, critiques, etc are welcome, though it's unlikely I'll be returning to these guys anytime soon. More krumpin', less paintin'.

 

 

PS: keep your eyes on the FBH if you want to see what I've been working on since finishing these guys. It's weedy! :choppa

Cheers Grotskul :cheers . I'll take compliments from anyone with a Zagstrukk-head avatar :D . Unfortunately, the Kavalry Korps has regrettably have seen very little action outside of Combat Patrol.

Great job!

 

I love the technique, love trying to figure out the conversion components, and really like how well you have presented and painted old school models than can very often look like crap without ace level paint jobs!

Just absolutely, absolutely amazing.  I don't think I would ever be able to look at a metal model ever again.  Lucky they don't make them any more...
