Pressure mounting...

well, the BoB just keeps getting closer, so I put in some more work, and thought I'd share. I was actually pretty pumped b/c, with a little color advice from Shawn O, I think I got the lion fur nailed down. This is huge as many of the models in the army have lion fur on them, and 10 are actual lions.

first, you build the armies to play, so here's two quick shots from me and Driver's game last Wednesday. This first shot is me contemplating how to utterly destroy Driver's forces...

Clearly, the shot below is Driver after I have carried out said contiplated plan. I beat Driver in another game after this one on Monday, but he learned from his mistakes and smacked me around today (Wednesday).

First, my first real foray into green stuff usage. I think it looks very nice, but fur seems to be pretty easy to do. That does not, however, diminish my pride in this model. I scraped the massive chaos symbol of this dude's back and replaced it with fur.

Next a close-up of the lion fur with highlights. Its a little harsh from this close, but you get the idea.

and the coup de grace, a more "realistic" range from which to view the models. These guys are complete except for the shields and heads to be added. I am very, very happy with the results. What do you think?

That's a sweet obelisk on the table. And that is definitely some heavy contemplation going on, I feel intimidated just by the picture. Funny, this picture looks almost exactly like your profile pic for blogspot.

The warriors look awesome. Very nice work on the lion fur. The whole color scheme of the models goes very well together, nice choices there.

I can't remember if you've mentioned it or not, but what are your plans for basing?

Ben, the fur looks good. I see you went w/ the "classic" lion option;)

@ Blair

I am going to go for a tundra option. There should be a pic of a sample one below. I will be putting up another model in this motiff soon.

@ Douche

ya, I did. I liked your idea on "white" lions, but i think it was too much white with the cloaks. I really appricate the color help on the Classic lions, i am really pleased with how they look!
