Wheel of misfortune

Well, here it is, my first completed model of 2013! Well, its a bit of a cheat as i did start it on Christmas Eve...but even so!

Quite happy with how this turned out, did a bit of free hand work on the banner, its not going to win any awards, but it does add to it i think.

Also, i did use games workshops new range of texture paints for the base. I've been sceptical about them for some time, but i must admit, i think the base looks really good, and took half the time it did had i used sand!

anyway, let me know what you think!


  1. Looking good, hoping to give them a game in the near future.

    One point, you appear to have mud on the wheels at the bottom, either by design or because you were carefree when painting the base, should you put some mud on the other parts of the wheels so it looks like it has picked it up whilst zipping round the battlefield?

  2. Nice one, Elliot.

    Don't know if it's just the light in the photo, but your wheel looks a mite shiny to my eye. Are you going to add some rust/weathering, or keeping the factory-fresh feel?

  3. Good point Chris, I did think that as I was doing it, I was just worried that it would ruin it so didn't want to risk it.
    Thanks Papa, the picture does look unusually bright, its a bolt gun metal dry brush on top of a tin bitz base coat.

    1. Or touch up the metal

      Stained and rusty = skaven

  4. Nice wotk day I'll get round to painting mine.......
