Another update here. I finished a bunch of stuff, so plenty pictures this time. I hope someone is still reading this
First of all, my branchwraith, not a conversion really, just a few dryad bits and pieces put on one base. I have decided to have a go with the purple spites. She has 2, to distinguish her from ordinary dryads. Not much to paint on her otherwise, I always struggle with making these simple models interesting. If anyone has a cool idea for a branchie, let me know.
Next up is the great eagle. This was my big project, as I had to have him finished by the end of April, for a tourney I am attending. well, I did not have to, but I have a commitment of not playing unpainted models.
Getting the eagle finished was not easy at all. The first problem was getting the eagle, as I did not want the GW one. So I ordered the gamezone eagle via a local shop. It took them 3 weeks to get it into the Czech republic and then the eagle was lost by our wonderful post office. And they took another 2 weeks to acknowledge this, so I had to wait all the time
Anyway, I became fed up with the service of the shop and ordered 2 new ones from the UK on Ebay. These arrived within a week, so that is a lesson learned
Next up was assembling it, which is a pain. The gamezone models are beautiful, but they are very poorly cast. So lots of filing and miliput went into this one. And pins, of course. Making the base was also tricky, as I had to build a wire frame to attach him to. And it had to look good while being sturdy
In the end, he is attached to a 2mm wire that goes all the way down to the base and forms a centre of the tree. Therefore, the centre of gravity is in the middle of the base. The rock is just a visual counterbalance, no weight there. I hope you like him
BTW, he is huge and a pain to take pictures off, so better pictures in the future, if I figure it out
And last is my wardancer hero, nothing special, just a little cleaner then my regular ones. I loved the pose of the model though, it is kinda cool. Also the spites are purple again. And the red hair which makes him stand out so much more. Seems like a theme for my heroes
Next up will be a couple more glade guard and maybe some glade riders. And my alter, when I figure out which model to use for him. Suggestions welcome.
