Watch the Olde World Burn - Kaptain BlackSquig - 01-15-2015 11:42 PM

Hello fellow deviants in destruction! Da Kaptain has decided to split time with his beloved O&G to complete his army of vertically challenged architects of evil! What follows will be my blog detailing modeling, painting, fluff and more. And of course I will still update my O&G in Da Kaptain's Hobby Berth!

Base Designs

As the story of the Chaos Dwarves revolves around their dedication to machinery and more, they tend to rape their lands of everything of value, leaving little behind but an industrial wasteland. I wanted to make sure the bases for the army matched this matra (OK the bases for the Fireborn are the basic lava, but you get the idea!). Please note that while the design idea was mine, a good friend gave my ideas form and created these bases for me and now it is my task to make sure my paints live up to these!

With that in mind, here are the...basics...

WIP's









And some pics of the finished project:

Beginning looks great! Nice bases and even more the smoke clouds. Good luck with your blog!Takes Hat off

One remark: Hobgoblin infantry units have a minimum size of 20, so you can`t split them 15wise.


RE: Watch the Olde World Burn - Admiral - 01-16-2015 03:04 AM

Agreed, Herby. That's a clever technique for consistent basing. Nice terrain! I look forward to the painted models. Happy


RE: Watch the Olde World Burn - DAGabriel - 01-16-2015 03:12 AM

Starts really cool.
Clever idea with that basing (if you have the chance to start with a lot of models in posession).


RE: Watch the Olde World Burn - Yodrin - 01-16-2015 03:57 AM

A great start, and it looks very good so far. The bases is gonna look awesome!!!


RE: Watch the Olde World Burn - tjub - 01-16-2015 04:17 AM

Wow, looks great so far! Happy


RE: Watch the Olde World Burn - Mivrash Faz - 01-16-2015 06:15 AM

What a great idea/approach for bases. I'll be watching the rest of this blog.


RE: Watch the Olde World Burn - BABIS - 01-16-2015 06:52 AM

wow great attention to those bases! something I never had the patience to do Tongue


RE: Watch the Olde World Burn - Vantraxx the Thrice Cursed - 01-16-2015 07:37 AM

Those bases are so awesome, mad work!


RE: Watch the Olde World Burn - Skink - 01-16-2015 09:05 AM

Them bases look good!!! Well done matey!


RE: Watch the Olde World Burn - TheHoodedMan - 01-16-2015 09:25 AM

Modifications on the BC weaponry looks well also. Now get them painted :-).


RE: Watch the Olde World Burn - Fuggit Khan - 01-16-2015 12:46 PM

Very nice bases, I love the craters with plumes of ash  Takes Hat off
And building an army by doing the bases first...you've added new meaning to the old saying "built from the ground up"


RE: Watch the Olde World Burn - Scar - 01-18-2015 09:27 AM

Really nice start!
Cant wait to see some paint jobs!


RE: Watch the Olde World Burn - Kaptain BlackSquig - 01-25-2015 04:43 PM

So while I am still working on background and such, thought I would ask for some thoughts on this as a basic paint scheme. I have mostly Russian Alternative figures (I really do like them!) but the colors will still work fine on those minis as well.

My goal here was to tie in the orange-ish armor for both fire and the reddish orange I use on my O&G. I think I need to use purple instead of blue on the undershirt, to further tie in and keep the pallet warm.





Also, does anyone know why some Photobucket images will post and others wont? I cut and pasted both of these and the front image will not load.

RE: Watch the Olde World Burn - DAGabriel - 01-26-2015 03:30 AM

Nice start and no, I am using photobucket, too, and never had that problem.
Considered a yellow for the underskirt? Or even a dirtied off-white over brown shoes?
With lava it would fetch a nice sheen easily acquired with some lazes?


RE: Watch the Olde World Burn - Kaptain BlackSquig - 05-29-2015 08:43 PM

"I would just like to say that your standing on the tracks and the train's coming through butthead!"







A little update on the growing throng of vertically challenged evil Stunties...I have been knee deep in painting commissions but I am working my way back to my Chaos Dwarves, hope to show more in the coming weeks and get some army badges too!

RE: Watch the Olde World Burn - Abecedar - 05-30-2015 03:17 AM

I love the craters and smoke plumes.
One stalled project is some just like that but not on one individual model scale, and no smoke
they are more of actual broader sized terrain peices I thought I'd make.


RE: Watch the Olde World Burn - Kaptain BlackSquig - 05-31-2015 08:34 AM

And after a little more work and some highlighting...







More to follow as I am adding to the army, even as 9th edition looms larger on the horizon...

RE: Watch the Olde World Burn - DAGabriel - 05-31-2015 11:07 AM

Looking good, as far as I can see!
But...
Could you please do them 800 wide?


RE: Watch the Olde World Burn - Yodrin - 05-31-2015 12:38 PM

Very nice work!!

I will retake them mate, when I tried to modify them, it blurs the images.

You make the coolest bases! I love them!


RE: Watch the Olde World Burn - Loidrial - 06-01-2015 12:54 PM

CAPT'N! You are the boss! I love your bases and models!


RE: Watch the Olde World Burn - Bloodbeard - 06-02-2015 02:40 AM

Very neat machine Blacksquig. Great to see some colour in here.

What colour did you use on the scales? It is so like what I am dealing with on some other models of mine.

Hey Mate
I based him using Mephiston Red, followed by Jokero Orange highlight, then washed with Nuln Oil and highlighted with really white added Jokero, almost to the point of a cream color. Final edged with Skull White. Thing is, I am ending up doing my armor in a different color, more orange...will be posting some pics of them soon!

Cheers!

RE: Watch the Olde World Burn - Abecedar - 06-03-2015 09:14 PM

Thanks for that.  Its bit more involved than I normally do but if I have to repair this squads armour I'll know what to do.


RE: Watch the Olde World Burn - edriarr blackleaf - 06-17-2015 11:26 AM

Excellent bases, fascinating to see them evolve as they were made, to finished, and painted awaiting miniatures to claim them. Seeing them all painted and on display was like the end of the 1960s The Time Machine where the wasteland is smoking.

Going to be one impressive sight when finished.
