Got a bit late to start this topic...Here I will post my final work for conversation or post my WIP to ask advice.
I restarted painting after my childhood six months ago and I believe that I have done some fast steps over the painting part of the hobby. Plz help me improve
All my minis will be included after many years in some huge dioramas that I am preparing. I fast paint the troops and focus more on elites.
For now I will use em for tabletop.
Beacause of my studies in architecture I can easily and fast use photoshop so you will see some edited backgrounds (and some superb terrains laterz haha). Of course I don't edit the model's photo, it would be hilarious.So, let's roll !
This is a part of an Isengard army that I will later include in a Helm's Deep diorama.Sorry for the glowing mistake on the photoshooting I will fix that in next photos.
This cap is inspired from the Uruk that screamed as Saruman's host arrived at Helm's Deep.
Ok this is 90% ready, I will smooth some highlights another time.
This is converted and the idea about the banner came from Paliouras, so special thanks to him! I think we saw the way in hdrskirmisher.com but I cant find it. I could draw it with straight lines without any mistake but I don't thing uruks could do that. So I made it dirty, with paint running. The blood on the base is symbolic and the whole model represents the supremacy of the army that Saruman made.
I wanted my Berserkers to be inexorable, deadly and mad, filled with blood as they rush into the first lines.
A quick photoshop I made for my profile pic. I did NMM on the staff, it is a bit better than the photo tbh.
The boys! To Helm's Deep!
Some of the Pikemen.
