For those of who who are not as interested in the long run Tomb Kings postings, I do apologize. I will try to pop in a few non TK things here and there for you! However, it has been very fun for me (and very helpful as well) to have this day by day accounting of what has been done. When I looked at a post from the 19th of June during that "Long Night" of the qualifier, I saw just how much I had accomplished in only 10 days.
That gave me a boost to keep upright for the rest of that day.
Here's a few Ilyad ladies:
This post will give you a fairly good idea of how I am going about making those chariots! Settra was a bit of a sneak peek into this process :-)
I began by adding to the horses themselves. There was some artwork in the army book that made me want to put these "blankets" on the horses. I created the blanket using green stuff and pieces of plasticard on a flat surface, so that I could make a one piece mould. Once the mould was made, all I had to do was press in some green stuff and 'poof', armored blankets. Tin foil was used on the back side of them to keep the green stuff from sagging.
Once all the blankets were done, it was time to start painting them! Here are the initial layers of paint, what I called my "primer painting", since I was mixing paint in with the primer. That really cuts down on the time spent priming!
This next stage saw the development of some of the colors on the horses and the crews. I was trying to make sure to shift the colors from one chariot to the next.
Here is a shot of the bases, showing the big design that besically established the theme of the army!
Now for the most recent image. The front row of chariots had the horses and crew worked up some more, and some more work on the bases. Stay tuned for more!
