Games-Workshop's Warrior



The warrior was an interesting project. There's a lot I like about him and there's a bit I'm not satisfied with. The mouth in particular - should have done something to darken the expression but I struggled with it a couple of times and gave up. The body tones, blending the blues and reds, the drybrushing all came out rather well. Finished in July of 2001.

Games-Workshop's Elf



After a couple of months off, I was back at it again with a vengeance. The standard Elf was my next victim. I modelled him from the GW folks with a couple of changes. Blended the sword with blue as that seems more elven to me. I was quite impressed with the white triangles on the fringes as that took quite a bit of time and patience. It was one of those do I really want to attempt that type of moments and I'm glad that I did - really brings the character to life. The scans here aren't the greatest as the sword, bow, and cape make the model sit off the scanner at strange angles. Did my best - enjoy. Finished in July of 2001.
