[WIP] Warriors of Apoc - build/preparations

Time to prepare a model.
First, parts were cut off from the molding process. But don't throw this parts away. We can use them. For a better accessibly I did not glue all parts together. Just the right arm with the weapon and the torso with the legs. As you see on the picture above the cutoff-part of the shield is split into two parts and glued on the arms. This makes it easier to hold them while painting. No need to touch the work all the time. After the paint job is done this pin will be cut off. When all the parts come together no one will see it. The reason why this is done. Because if the shield-arm is put on before painting, its hard to reach parts of the body.

Lets get black priming...

[Vikings] with new snow base scheme

The bases now look like a cows hide but better then just pure white. To give it more scenic dead grass was added. Now I like them and the sub Commander too. He is so happy he wag with the sword. Yeah! We can see you.
As final tip the banner has to be done. (it is already stolen) :)
Few Stands are missing for the first Viking Battle Group.

[Vikings] more show base tests

I am still experimenting with the snow bases. They are not as easy as i thought. Its not a good idea to but on the white stucco paste directly on a surface. The paste drys more like color. Every structure you build with it will fade out. Even if you put on several layer. Therefore it is necessary to use something beneath.

here I used a sand paste before snow

here is used sand after snow
I will put on over a snow layer.

[Vikings] Projekt Starts

I have started a new historical project in 15mm scale. The small 600 points Army is build for the Field of Glory rules-set. After checking all base measures its time to base some painted models.

Models are used from Khurasan Miniatures. They are having a broad range of 15mm miniatures.
Shield decals are from Little Big Men Studios. They have a lot of highly detailed shield decals for differed sizes (10-40mm).

Here a sample of a wip base.
