Thread: Graishak WIP

    Default Graishak WIP

    Hi folks,

    following the recommendation of Chaotic Creations, I'm launching my own WIP thread and hope to gather
    valuable feedback regarding the project I'm now intending to start.

    Raw material (see picture)

    - An old black coach (missing wraith and coffin)
    - Neferata Mini
    - An old wraith
    - A big base

    Thinking about to design the base like the coach is on its way on a street, framed by smaller rocks.
    Once the base is finished I'll send you an update.

    Any ideas about the color scheme to be used?
    The coach is black for sure, but what about Neferata and the Wraith. What could be most spooky?

    Glad to see you starting a wip. Now inspire me to finish mine that has been on my paint desk since it was originally released...15 years ago or so???

    Hey, great work on starting the WIP Alex
    well my first bit of advice would be to dismantle that carriage and strip the paint off it... acetone works a treat (assuming it is metal) or if plastic dettol or simple green works well, BEWARE don’t put it in acetone if it is plastic ... this will help with a clean new start and prevent you from losing any detail. Then you can reassemble it (possibly without the roof so you can paint inside, or paint the inside and put it all together))...
    As for the colour scheme it all depends on how you want the end piece to look, I’ve seen heaps of these done different ways... personally I really like the ones with the ghostly look (ghost horse etc) ... but really paint it however you like... it’s your piece of art
    i recommend searching google and find an idea you like and try to create something similar... so if you see something you like but not sure how to do it, then you can ask on here how to do it, because there are some phenomenal painters who frequent these forums, and I’m sure someone will be able to give you a bit of guidance on how to do that technique...
    Looking forward to seeing how this all comes together !!!

    @Krulebear: Wow... that's a long time. Well, will try to motivate you by showing progress of my project.
    Problem, since I started again playing warhammer, that there are so many nice minis out there and so few time to paint them. Therefore unpainted forces are staring at me from my desk complaining "Why the coach? Why not me?" :-P

    @Marcus: Cleansing is done... there was only few colour besides the basic layer on the coach - and some dust + glue rests needed to be removed. As CMON is my "google" I've already searched for a couple of examples. Anyhow... as with Neferata a nice conversion is coming along will make some more thoughts... Could imagine to do the stuff things in a purple blue combination, while keeping the coach black.

    Base is now designed and I can move focus to the coach. Will start with the steeds.
    Feedback on the base? Did I miss something - or any advice what could be improved?
