The blogosphere is red hot with discussions about what's better: Fantasy or 40k. One thing is for sure: modeling fantasy is harder....that's what I believe. Making sure 10 models rank up, don't bonk each other over and look different and dynamic is really, really hard for me. Here's the Grave Guard as I just built it up.
Because I have to figure out how they end up next to each other, I am modeling my Hordes of Vormond differently then my Bishkek 2nd. I build up the entire model, bases, glue, the whole thing and later one figure out how to get paint in the most impossible places.
I cut off the weird wings on all those helmets and twisted their torso to make them look like they are on the move. I separated out the 10 models in 3 singles, 1 trio and 1 quartet. I like the option of modeling multiple models on one base. It makes for a more believable scene.
I am painting up a test model now which I will share with you later this week.
