Dwarf Longbeard WIP continues

I'm really digging the new Dwarf plastics from GW. If they weren't so expensive for 10, I'd do some pretty big blocks of these Longbeards. In particular I love those shields.

This is before any matte varnish and the beards aren't done. More work left to do. I'm loathe to matte varnish them as I don't want to lose the luster of the gold and silver armor etc - but I find myself forced to use washes to pull out some of the details (like on the shields) which leaves them looking a tad too glossy for my tastes. Still, overall I think they are coming along.

I also started to paint the Gyrocopter and assembled a unit of Irondrakes.

10 at a time...10 at a time....

Dwarf Longbeard WIP

Hi guys, sorry it's been a while since my last post - work is keeping me pretty busy. As has the Titanfall beta (omg fun).

So despite my insistence that I was done painting GW/Warhammer models - the new shiny (read: new Dwarf models) caught my eye and I couldn't resist picking up a unit to paint. I decided to start with just the command group which you see here. It's not a very flattering shot and this is literally after a couple of washes so they are a bit glossy in places. But I think once they are done they will look pretty sharp. I'm trying to avoid dulling down the metallics so that these Dwarfs really gleam :)
