Re: The sun will never set on the Slann Empire

Thanks Niko , hope to make it to France with the Slann, that would be great! and thanks Sean - really looking forward to see the Human Slaves and i saw the Bizaza scenery/totems wip - look amazing!. Sorry slow reply, was out of town then Slann break to work on Ral Partha Tribal Orcs and Halfling Skeletons but made a Dread Banner (with image of Human Slave as warning or reminder to those who rebel against the Slann) and painted the Slann slave handler plus another cold one rider (also painted the Slann Herald but not photographed). Just now painted a Pygmy on Cockatrice and started work on Pygmy War Turtle - (from Rafm miniatures with added Kalistra Pygmy). Soon back to painting Slann units- but need to acetone first.

The Slann have gifted the Pygmys some Beasts of War - in gratitude to their loyalty including their role in the recent victory over Ketil Trout's Orcs. (War Turtle still being worked on)

Re: The sun will never set on the Slann Empire

Just went back and reworked a small unit of Cold One Riders painted a year or so ago. Not yet satisfied - but at least the dreadful attempt at bone/skeletal warpaint now painted over. Should still tone down the white which really stands out in the photos, but it is more fun to paint a fresh Slann than trying to add highlights and washes to figures already painted. So ... will start a fresh unpainted Slann in the morning and leave these for now. Added Usuthu Blue Tongue in to the photos and a single Hero on Cold One while the camera was out.

The unit looks gorgeous, nice totem :-). It is really beautifully displayed between your jungle plants, too.
I would like to see the shields better some time.

This is a beautiful army across the board: The shields, the banners, the terrain, the chosen colours and the conversions. All great work. Go Cult of the Golden Toad!

Re: The sun will never set on the Slann Empire

Thanks Hooded Man! i struggle with the shields - i wanted them to look 'tribal' with patterns rather than too 'civilised' , from far in full units i like them, but close up, especially when i see the free hand shields on this forum they are really rough...thanks alot Karak - highly apreciated! Here is my ruined Slann Temple made about a week ago - will soon build a corridor (with wall painting depicting a Slann Cold Ones charge against Dark Elves - as i imagine the temple to be in North Lustria, in an area constantly attacked and lost to the Dark Elves, then reclaimed) , then build a larger ruined temple room - with a large Slann wall painting (but next time paint the walls before assembling) - plus a photo of three more Slann painted the last weeks in the temple.

Re: The sun will never set on the Slann Empire

last night re worked the Slann Palanquin (painted 2 years ago - without acetone clean from childhood paint - regret that now) still need to add some detail and not sure about having painted red lobotomy scars around the slaves heads, also lightened the skin of my Lvl 25 Hero on Cold One plus brightened the feathers , Hooded Man - here you can see how rough the shield is painted...going to look now at all the great stuff posted on the forum the last days
