Tip: if you paint only using washes* you can cut more corners and achieve better results than only applying base colors. win-win situation.

*over white primer or better, zenithal priming.

So I was just painted up these two ( a Night Goblin Netter and Dwarf Longbeard champion ) just for dip into the arch enemys of the Old World.

Spoiler:


I am going to go with Night Goblin spears and axe and board Longbeards.

Albinos, eh?


Absolutely. Barring the Stormvermin and Grey Seer who have lore fur colors, the entire army will be albino. And I'll have a nervous twitch after painting that much white...


Taking a look at your first unit. I think you need Army Painter Soft Tone.
Albino or not, these ratties are way too clean. Also the teeth.


My plan is to ink/wash them later at my leisure, as what little time I have to paint is geared towards our goal of having every army for WFB 6th and having it fully painted.

Also, notice the bases. Goblin Green and flock. That's pretty much the mindset of my entire painting ambition.



To be fair, we did try an experiment. We went to town on one of our High Elf regiments, Gradation shading, ink, the works. I checked the army book after we were done and found that not a single stat line had changed. Did you know there's no +1 LD for stippling? Odd...

Rim & flock is not a cop out, it is a decent tidy solution and was a staple for good reason. I changed from Goblin Green and flock to Desert Yellow (army painter) and flock, with variation only for characters, as it is the theme I use for my Realm of Battle boards and the brown serves as my base for non flocked areas.
I believe that oftimes less is more, and in the case of basing there are several advantages to a minimalist base no matter how much effort you place on the paintjob.

Not seen painting for advantage since the late 80's. So oldhammer you are trying to resurrect old sins even GW moved past. tut tut.

It would appear you missed the satire...




I paint my models so you can tell what they are, not because of some enriching feeling of having painted models. I saw two stealth Marine armies face off once, and it was comical once H2H started happening. I don't paint to show off skills that I frankly don't see as useful even if I DID have them. My painting exists solely because of the gaming is what I'm trying to say.

You missed mine.

Painting for advantage is all but impossible now. I cannot see any means by this it can work. Painting <insert army> bright pink will not give them a fabulous save.
Painting for advantage was a part of the game in the distant past back in the days of 2nd and 3rd edition when units had common statlines and you could upgrade most, but not all units to elite. Back in the day WYSIWYG was very important as there were very thin covers for army books and exact equipment on model was more relevant as it was the defining characteristic. Armies had their own fluff and background but the distinction between normal and elite troops was defined in the army list. So knights and halberdiers were knights and halberdiers, but either unit could be elite. You had to follow WYSIWYG on equipment, so wargear had to be depicted and painted the proper colour, so metal armour couldn't be painted leather brown. But beyond that and the need to clearly document everything you didnt have to reveal more than what the opponent could see. You had to point out characters, but not explain what they were.
So here is where painting to advantage came in, for tournaments several players would give regular troops full livery, colourful banner etc, while the units with all the elite bonuses would have a tatty banner and plain dirty wool or leather surcoats and rustier mail. Some players went as far as to use a lower quality paintjob. It would take contact with 'cheap militia' to find that they had a potent magical banner, many elite abilities and their unit 'Champion' was in fact a Major Hero.

n'oublie jamais - It appears I now have to highlight this again.

Working on 1500pts of Vampire Counts. Almost done, my newer player likes playing fully painted and I had some VC I'd been meaning to fix up for games anyway. Was going to get my High Elves painted but it was going to be a looong way to 1500 for them. finishing up my crypt ghoul unit right now.

I built a named character for my Waagh! Grom Campaign. None less than the infamous Ol' Blacktoof, the warp-dazzled up-to-no-good Goblin Shaman and advisor of Grom, riding on the back of a mighty wyvern!!

What rule set are you using for you campaign? I don’t recall goblins being allowed to ride a wyvern.

Each clan represents a type of hobbyist:
Deathskulls are the people who can make armies from scraps,
Blood Axes are the ones who think about something called "taktics" before a game,
Evil Sunz are the speed painters, who crank out armies in a week,
Snakebites are the ones who either prefer old rules and models, and/or were there when they were created,
Badmoons are the ones with wealth, and can afford to buy an entire army from FW,
Goffs are the ones who play to fight,
and freebooterz are the rejected ones, the that guys, and cheaters of the hobby world, or even just 3d printer owners depending on who you ask.

I made the rules for the campaign myself, including rules for all special characters ( Eltharion, Grom and Blacktoof) so it was no problem, even if it's not in the core rules.

Things I'm working on for WHFB/Old World:

1. I have the Kruleboyz from the latest AoS box, and I want to build an army around their aesthetic. Sticking to 6/7E, not really optimising for tactics. Will run the Hobgrots as either garden variety gobbos or Hill Goblins to jack up points cost and bring down model count. I'm Likely to 3D print a batch of river trolls from Emang's Total Warhammer rips. Definitely going to use the troll with an orc on it for a giant.

2. High Elves. Likely not going GW with the models, as there's someone who does High Elves exclusively on MMF and Iike the cut of their jib. Haven't thought about this too much yet, I just know I want elves.

3. Warmaster. It's really achievable in terms of modelling with lots of support from the 3D printing crowd. I'll play this game double fisted if I have to, I've been itching to try a smaller scale fantasy game for ages.

4. My Dwarfs, they comin along:
