Paint Table Saturday 177th edition !

Paint Table Saturday 177th edition !
 Welcome to paint table 177 !
I'm still working on the High Elves Phoenix Guards. And I can't stay motivated enough to make reel progress on them.
To finish the challenge I've sett for myself , I have to finish these and the Dwarf Grudge thrower + crew and that before Friday. It's looking bad ... :) But I'm very happy with the progress I've already made and 56 models painted was too ambitious. I'm on 43 models painted (if you include the Chaos Lord) and the High Elves will probably be finished by Friday. So that brings the count probably to 53... So I can't complain by any means...

Chaos Lord finished !

 Today I didn't enjoy painting High Elves , so I worked on the Chaos Lord that was still on my table.
And I was able to finish him.
I painted him in the green color-scheme (Nurgle). He'll be the commander of the Marauders (also painted green / Nurgle)
And here he is commanding his forces.
That's it for now. 
Tomorrow there will be 'Paint Table Saturday 177th edition' !

High Elves : Phoenix Guard W.I.P : test-model finished

 Today I finished the test-model for the Phoenix Guards.
I apologize for the bad pictures. I'm tired and so is my old camera (+ insufficient lighting).
I'll make better pictures when the group is finished and show them off.  
 So , one down 9 to go ...

High Elves Phoenix Guard ... Quick W.I.P.

A quick w.i.p. of the Phoenix Guard.
And they're on fire !
 The outside of the cloak is finished except for the final highlight. The fire is finished. 
And a closer look of the banner.
That's it for now. More progress (or finished models / optimistic) in a few days.

High Elves Black Guard finished !

Today I finished the Black Guard Elves from yesterday's paint table.
And they're magnetized on the base.
The Black Guard of Naggarond - or just Black Guard are the personal regiments of the Witch King Malekith. As well as being Malekith's personal guard they form the elite forces of Naggarond's garrison. Their primary weapons are halberds and are equipped with heavier armour than the civilian forces. They are the Dark Elves' greatest infantry unit, feared for their discipline and great hatred.

The Black Guard are recruited at birth from families in the Witch King's favour. These children are then educated at one of twenty Tower barracks. The would-be guards are routinely visited by the Witch King himself.

At graduation each aspirant swears fealty to the Witch King for a period of 200 years. Those that survive this tour are rewarded with lands and wealth, many then becoming rulers, generals and members of Malekith's court. Some Dark Elves choose to remain as Black Guard beyond the 200 years, of these the twenty greatest are the Tower Masters.

A status of rivalry exists between the twenty towers; annually, during the Season of Blood, the tower masters host a tournament, the winning Tower dominates the force for that year. Life at these institutions is brutal and it is not unheard of that half of a given round of recruits perishes before their graduation.
 And a family picture with some other High Elves groups.
 The Swordmasters of Hoeth & the Maiden Guard.

Paint Table Saturday 176th edition !

Paint Table Saturday 176th edition !
 Welcome to paint table 176 !
I'm still working on the Black Guard Elves.
5 more bodies to highlight silver & then that's finished.
I also need to highlight the faces ( Champion + dead heads ) & make the bases and then they're finished. No progress on the Chaos Lord. ( Still deciding what color to paint him in. Red , blue , green or red?)
5 Almost completely finished ( except for the facial highlight & the bases ). These 4 + the test model.
I hope to finish them tomorrow and start the next group.

I also calculated all measurements for my Dwarf ship project.
To enlarge the Dreadfleet Dwarf Ship Grimnir's Thunder (+/- 7cm long) to a 33cm long one with some modifications. No submarine part , but replaced with a changeable deck with either Dwarf troops or cargo. I just need to figure out how to make the shape of the front of the ship and then the project can start !

I also decided to have more challenges. As they seem to motivate me to paint more.
These are the challenges that will be seen here in the near future (one challenge / month ): 
- All female challenge (painting 40 mini's)
- Cavalry challenge (painting 20 mounted mini's or chariots)
- Army challenge (painting 40 mini's of one army)
- Super Dungeon Explore challenge (painting 20 or more mini's / depending on they're size)
- Box challenge (painting all (remaining)mini's of one big box (example : Warhammer Quest Silver Tower))

If you know of fun challenges or tips for building the Dwarf ship or whatever ... leave a comment ... or just for the fun of it ... all is welcome !

That's it for this edition of the paint table.
Until next week !

High Elves Black Guard testmodel finished !

 Today I've been working on the testmodel of the Dark Elves Black Guard or better High Elves Black Guard. As I'm no longer make a difference between the Elves. The first example was the Witch Elves and now the Black Guard and in the future Dreadspears. 
I've chosen to combine the 2 color-schemes of the Swordmasters as I did before for the Maiden guard. So one down 9 to go... and the bases of course.
