Well, I'm NOT painting right now (busy writing TLRB) but I'm so freaked out by the talent, that I wanted to share some of my work. This is a trophy I made for a Mordheim Special Event I coordinated... the winner (great guy... BIG MATT, I still salute you!) insisted that I keep the trophy. I tried to refuse his offer, but at the end he won. I'm glad! Wink

The model is around 5" tall, composed of non-GW models. The sign was hand-written (by me!) and it says "Welcome to Mordheim, A Great Place to Live!"... me and my stupid jokes! Just Kidding In my mind, Wyrdstone is clean and crystaline (like quartz) but with clean eerie shine! This was my 1st attempt at Object Source Lighting (OSL), and I don't think is that bad.













Comments and critiques are always welcomed! Very Happy

Very nice. The osl is subtle and effective - good use of the luminous plastic pieces, not to mention the models (some sort of bone swarm?).

I love the sign by the way, Mordheim is all about the grotesque, with a kind of warped humour attached IMO.

How did you do the eyes on the skeletons - simple yet creepily effective.

Good job - Any more you can show us? I reckon there's got to be more - right?

cheers Cheers Laney

Thanks guys.
dr!zzt: All the glow is OSL. Some goblin green, then scorpion green.

mudboy: Ha! I don't have time to paint for me! Sad Glad you liked it.

Laney: The Wyrdstone is the green acrylic plastic from the Necrons; cut, edged, sealed and then painted and highlighted. Lots of people have lifted the model to look for the 'batteries'! He! The bones is indeed a swarm... specifically Warmachine's
Boneswarm! I agree with you that Mordheim is a great setting for dark humor; I always wanted to make T-Shirts

The eyes on the skeletons I did with a watered-down bad-moon yellow.


More? I have some unfinished projects for Death Squads. Let me dig some pictures.

Hhehehe.... I was amazed at my luck. I don't think I'm that good. Embarassed For the green, I made a a drybrush with goblin-green (darker) around ALL the area I want the effect. I think the trick is going on a straight outside motion (from center of light source to the edge) with seriously little amount of paint. Take your time.

Then I repeated the process with mix (1:1) of goblin green with snot green... hitting less area (not as far from the center). Again with just snot green... then snot and scorpion green... then scorpion green (now is barely where the source is... maybe few strokes here and there, but not much).

One single color should be easier than multi-color (like fire).

That thing is pretty cool. Having a unique object like that, especially something handmade, can really make player-organized events memorable. Nice.

@ EVERYONE!!!

RyanIronwolf is my Master!!! Back in the before the "Mordheim-times", this guy taught me how to play 40k, how to assemble models and how to paint! I remember the exact day I learned how to highlight.... I became more annoying than normal! He gave me the first information about Mordheim, and encouraged me to organize the locals to play... and always rooted for me when I started creating The Mordheimer's Information Centre (always laughing at my OCD... asking if I ever sleep. Sounds familiar?) This guy gave me the pointers on building this trophy and directed the concept for me.


Larry was always supportive... great player and even greater friend. BTW... NOBODY can roll as many Roll 1 's as him... not even Da Bank or Dozer!

I only offered tricks, you have the talent man. I am proud to see how far you've come. Never annoying and as always no dumb questions except the one ya didn't ask.

I still hold the record up here of 8 1's on terminator saves from unstable renegade guard lasguns....
