No Help At All

When all you want to do is sit down and get on with some painting…


Khor Knights

My Tir-Na-Bor Dwarf army is nearly finished, the last main unit was these six Khor Knights on Razorbacks.

They are painted mostly in metallics with some Iron Grey so they fit in well with the rest of the army.

The models were provided with a choice of stream hammers or steam lances, but I decided to go with the steam hammers, the main reason being that they would not get bent and will pack in a case more easily. Anyway, hammers are more of a Dwarf weapon.

Clockwork Dragon

After fixing the wings in a different position a few months ago, this was another model waiting to be undercoated. The wings are hard plastic, but the body, head and tail are the soft and bendy Reaper Bones plastic. This stuff can react with aerosol undercoat so I decided to hand undercoat it before spraying. I started off painting it white but after a while I realised painting white onto a white plastic meant I could not see what I had done…so I switch to a light grey which made it much easier.

Once that was done, I felt happier about spraying it all chainmail.

Now I need to paint some detail and it will be ready to add to the Dragon Rampant Tir-Na-Bor Dwarf army.
