Showcase: Wood Elf Hero with Great Weapon
I know I said that my next post would be a comparison of the before and after photographs using my new light box and long suffering other half's camera but something much better has been finished for their first outing.
I have taken my own advice and had a go at painting something completely different. It was very refreshing to go into my local GW store and just browse for something that I fancied painting. I picked this wood elf, and it doesn't get much more different than this. All that flowing cloth, tiny detail and shiny armour. He's certainly not a space marine.
To challenge myself even more I tried to use NMM (non metallic metal) techniques. I found the this tutorial from watching paint dry really useful.
So please enjoy my most recent efforts and I hope that the new photography is an improvement.
I used the GW studio model as a guide and here is a picture of it for comparison. (image courtesy of GW)
