These are the models I have completely done so far. I didn't take in-progress pictures on these as I didn't plan on doing a blog back then.
I'll start with the skellies I guess. These are the first warhammer models I painted. I didn't really research much and just kind of dove right into it (though I have to thank Shawn O for some newbie tips). I also did these models individually from start to finish, which I realize now isn't the greatest way to paint a unit. You also may notice that there are only eight of them. When I first painted them I thought I was going to include a banner and musician, however now that my list has changed I'm remodelling those models with sword and shield.
Next up are my dire wolves. I had a little bit of experience before I began these guys, and also some good tips from Ben and Driver. I'll be sporting 2 units of 5 at the Hillbilly, but shown below are just one unit. They actually didn't take nearly as long as I thought they would, especially once I got a routine down. This unit was also painted 'correctly' in that I did the base coat on all the models before I began drybrushing them all, then highlighting, etc.
The last model I have completely done (I find that I jump around between units a lot when I paint, that's why this list is so short) is my corpse cart. This was a pretty big awakening to how hard these kits can be. Even though it was only plastic, it took a lot of doing to get all the pieces to fit together properly. Painting was also a little bit of a nightmare. I did the skin by doing a basecoat of bleached bone, followed by a flesh color, and a final wash of brown. It was pretty simple, but turned out well. I'm still not quite satisfied with the basing, as the back seems to be needing something (maybe a zombie coming out of the ground or something).
So that's it for stuff totally done. My wife is moving to her internship this weekend, so I won't have time until next week to take pics of my many works in progress.
