Mostly completed, still need to have their bases flocked.

Debating whether or not to continue the Tartan, ton of work.







The Tartan itself is based on the clan Tartan, as shown below:

wow, good job with the Tartan! I don't have the steadiness to be able to freehand something like that. Definitely adds a neat personalized touch to the paint jobs, so even though it took a lot of work, if you did a bunch of models with it, it would look really good

Thanks, you're correct about the personalization, particulary since it's the family tartan, near as I can figure.

OTOH, it also adds about 1-2 hours per figure. Not so bad in Warmachine, a non-starter in 40K. I do have have dags and checks on my orks as well, but that generally 2 colors, and only the nobs.

Well, I think it looks like the time you spent on it was worthwhile, but only you can decide if it's truly worth spending more time on for more minis. Are you going to have a lot more of the guys with the fabric like that? Also, I don't know how long it takes the individual steps to dry, but a lot of times while one coat is drying on one mini, I will do the same step on another one... Usually can do about 3 at the same time and just do the steps one at a time on each one and get three done in the same amount of time. That's mostly true when I use inks and washes, though, so I'm not sure if that would help you at all or not.

I've gotten some good feedback here, and other places, so I think I'll keep it up. I'm much more aware of the flaws, so it's hard sometimes to see the good in it.

You're correct about doing one and moving one. I did all 6 at the same time, which helped, I had a couple I redid because I wasn't happy with them (both the same fig, something about the bit between the legs was tricky). When I redid those I had to wait a long time for each coat to dry, which was annoying.

Looks really good, the red gems on the sword really sticks out, and the tartan looks very natural.

Are you going to do a dirtier base? I think a mud or rock base would be good to make the green of the tartan really stick out.

Thank you, my gf made a similar comment. I think a lot of the ones I see online don't look like cloth because the colors are too solid, so you don't get a rough look.

That's the a really interesting point I'll have to think about it. You're correct that the bases right now are pretty much the same as the tartans.
