Retro Dwarves!

Here's some more of my bargain buys off ebay!

 I think these little bad boys cost me about 10p again and I'm really happy with how they came out!

I continued with my technique of trying to use different shades of the same colour to make highlights and dark spots of the miniatures.

Like i said, I'm really pleased with how they came out. I even added some stones to the archers to make it look like they were taking cover behind some rocks!

I've got some more Dwarves coming in the post from Mantic Wargames. Their models are like the Games Workshop ones but are much cheaper! I'm going to use them as a base to a Fantasy army which I hope to show you the progress of over the next couple of months!

I also have some Roman Auxiliaries to paint in the next couple of days!

Retro Skaven!

Here's some pictures of my latest project. I got these Old School Skaven models off ebay for 10p! Which I thought was a bargain. Unfortunately, they didn't come with shields (hence the big holes in the hands) but I think I'll try and find some more on ebay to complete the models!

I'm really pleased with how the models came out and I even bought some static grass to give them a more realistic look.

But, I will say that painting them was hard! I think it was because of the age of the models. It was hard trying to pick out all the detail such as the hair because the moulding was not that great.

I hope you enjoy these pictures! I should have some more pictures of a group of Dwarves up in a couple of days. Also, I was thinking of painting some historical miniatures. I know that most of you prefer them to Warhammer and was wondering if you could give me any advice on sets/kits that would be good for a beginner like me! Cheers guys!
