Just two tips : Take pictures in area where you have a lot of light and use macro settings on your camera.

The model itself looks neatly painted, but the picture is too blurry to see any highlights or details.

The camera's old and armadilloe. :P  And my house is dark. Trust me, she did a far better job than the photo suggests. :)

Painting IoB rat ogres for Ash.

So much fun! Seriously, they're the best models I've painted so far...
I think I've spent 4 hours on those guys so far (including assembly, scraping off mold lines, green stuffing, priming and painting).
Hoping to put another 2-3 into them when I come back home in a few weeks. And upload some pictures.

This was the shortest holiday ever. Only one and a half day long...

I might find the time some day to upload some pictures of my own army, although it will be a little while as im not happy at all with my space (they aren't bad but theres no conversions done). Perhaps some Skaven rat ogres would be good to mess around with, if i can be bothered ill do this at some point.

I need a hand guys.
Or some ideas, to be more specific.
Now that I've collected almost everything I need for my Empire army, I've restarted my chaos warriors army project...

I'm planning to make at least 10 warriors/chosen for each chaos god.

- Since my army is going to be mono Nurgle, I already have Nurgle warriors. And they're a pretty straightforward conversion.
  Original chaos warriors with a few zombie heads here and there, a skaven plague monk banner, beastmen gor shields and a green stuffed champion.
  They're equipped with hand weapons and shields.
  I also have a 5-men unit of chosen in the making. Great weapons.
- Khorne warriors. I've already ordered 40k khorne beserker bits. No ideas needed here.
  Equipped with double one handed weapons. (a fluffy choice  ;D)
- Slaanesh warriors.
  Now this is the first part where I need your help...
  I was thinking about using bare torsos from beastmen gors, or perhaps even using some elegant elf/eldar bits. Ideas?
  Thinking about shield + halberd combo. Whip instead of musician. Your opinions?
  Needs to involve some bare skin, teeth and face shapes on armor, tentacles and an occasional boob.
  EDIT : found it!

- Tzeentch
  This is what I have in mind, but I have no idea how to achieve that:

  Weapon configuration? No idea.

Every time I see the title of this thread I imagine someone shouting it in the same way the stereotypicaly uncouth bloke would shout "show us your tits love". Is there something wrong with my brain?

Umm, should I change the title?

Give me some suggestions.

I'd make quite a bit of the fur browner and darker, there's not that much contrast at the moment on the torso, neck and legs. Otherwise, they look really good.

As I said, they're WIP. ;)

The only thing which is more or less finished for now are the metal parts.
I've only started highlighting their flesh.

The fur is still going to wait a bit. I was thinking about black/gray and dark brown fur.

I did.

In the dark future/past of Warhammer there is only war.
There's absolutely no time for sexual interpretations, jokes and healthy snacks.

Just war. Long, hard and dirty war.
Now.. wait a second...
