For Longblade: Some of my paint jobs.
« on: September 21, 2012, 10:25:20 PM »
I don't have any pictures of recent work, and I'm not at all impressed with the quality of our current digicam, so here's some things from the late 90's up to 2001 or so. The last picture (Uber) is about 5 years old.

GW Warmaster High Elves.



Warmaster Orcs.



Warhammer Black Orcs; a bit bigger than the BO's in the previous picture!



And the late, lamented REAL Ubercat. (No, I didn't paint him.)

Numbers 31:17-18
"Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves."

Psalm 137:9
"Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones."

Nice work Ubercat.  I love the old school WHFB miniatures.

Those are some impressive paint jobs!

Thanks, guys.

Not many more pics than that. What I have is just more pics of my Chaos Dwarf army that the big BO's were part of. I sold them on Ebay about 5 years ago for a pittance. A pittance in this case being just about what I paid for bare models and supplies, not even any money for the three years I spent painting them! One person bid it up to my minimum and made out like a bandit. How was I to know no one else would be interested?  :o I thought Warhammer was popular.

I've only played a couple of WH fantasy games, but IIRC chaos dwarves are no longer a sanctioned army.

True, but they're very collectible. And still have a handful of websites for their devoted fans (last I checked). I'da thunk more than one of them would have happened on my ten day auction.

Tru dat. Sorry to hear it went for so little.
