As you can see from my post here, the Corsair Reavers had been converted, but that is about it. But now, after a couple weeks of effort, they stand ready to take the field!
|L-R former spear, 2 former swordsmen, and an archer|
|I will probably still do some additional highlighting/detailing... eventually, but at least they are tabletop quality and ready for the tournament|
|I love the way the Southron corsairs came out. The guy on the left had some jeweler's chain added, and I was able to morph his shield into a sack of treasure. I sculpted hair on the center guy as well.|
|When you have 12 of these to do, it's hard to come up with variety. Especially when you are working with already painted miniatures. Not a lot of room for conversions without completely redoing your previous work.|
My Watchers of Karna were next on the list. Unfortunately these models are not very conducive to being converted - unless you want to do some sort of weapon swaps (which I didn't have time for. there are still a half dozen more to come, so plenty of time for that). I did put one of them on a little rock, and Bane got a trophy tuft of beard hanging from his sword (courtesy of his valiant attack on the ancient seer in this battle). Given the difficult nature of shading/highlighting black, I made a mixture of dark gray with a touch of black, shaded with black wash, and then highlighted with the original mixture. I think it turned out pretty well:
|a simple color scheme, but I rather like the ninja-esque result.|
If I have time, I'd like to add some more detailing or maybe some freehand on the Corsairs and Watchers. But that totally depends on the progress I make on my final project: Serpent Guard conversions.
|soooo much sculpting to do!|
Thankfully we are just about to head into a 3-day weekend. I'm trying to protect some hobbying time with all the social events that 3-day weekends tend to attract. All 12 of my Serpent Guards need new armor, capes (if not already modeled), pelts, swords, and new spears. We'll see how many of these I can manage this weekend. Wish me luck!
