Hey all,
As a refugee coming from the Mantic Forums I wanted to move my Fishmen army over here. I built it for almost 2 years but it is still growing, so I'd be glad if you coming on this journey with me.
The overall theme is an underwater theme, I added minis from lots of different companies to the army, e.g. Mantic, GW, Reaper, Antimatter Games, but also converted toys from Schleich or complete scratchbuilds.
I wanted to achieve an unique look that makes me hang on the project (what still works ) and to step out of my comfort zone trying NMM or modelling.
This project is by far my favourite I ever did - and has also a special value to me. It is the one which lifted me from my hobby absence and lit the fire again.
This said please prepare for a flood of pictures.
Hope you enjoy!

Thanks guys The fun part for me is that KoW allows a wide space for interpretation. All that matters gamewise is the footprint of a unit. I also play mostly beer&prezel games at home, so no problem for my friends if I tell them before what unit runs as what.
Here are some pictures from our games:

I am so very, very glad that you are transferring your work here! It is great that a new audience gets to see what you have done. Your modelling and painting has inspired and educated me ever since I started collecting Fishpeople.

May the dice be with you!

Good to see you here @Titus_painting. I'm just moving my own Trident Realm army pics onto dakkadakka too.

Hi @Arctic Dragon, hi @Edzig,
Thanks for your kind words. Good to see both of you here! Still not familiar with this forum but lots of interesting new stuff to explore (although I don't play 40k anymore ).
Maybe I'll also upload some other projects of mine onto this board... still have another underwater (40k) army lying around that could be of interest...

Dang but these are amazing. I love seeing all the variety to trident realms armies, each one is wild and unique.

Welcome. Very well done, especially the jellyfish. How did you make them? And what do they represent in-game?

Also, what figures did you use as the basis for the group of four mermaids in front of the gate?

Hi @amazingturtles, hi @Ancestral Hamster, thank you!! I also enjoy the different approaches on the TR, this multiplies the inspiration imo.

@jellyfish: I run these as water elementals. Almost scratchbuilt. Used hats from mushroom minis by a small kickstarter from a company called Bog's Minis (they do have a facebook group). Painted these with different patterns. Then added hot glue on top. The nettles are wire and GS. Used also GS world's wire tool to form the GS. Between the caps and the nettles I added an upside down plastic birthday candle stand.
Added some wip pictures.

@mermaids: These run as Nokken (well... they are in the showcase most of the time). Used GS's Wild Rider upper bodies. The tail is made from Milliput. Scales are painted as freehands.

Cheers, Titus

Thanks for moving the GBTR over, especially impressive to see all these shots in one thread. I'm still blown away by how well you handle tone across an army - which goes for your mushroomy gnome army too

Wow, nice work, I'm really not a far of the mantic naiads, like, really not a fan. But you made them look fantastic. So much work into making the whole army work as a display piece too.

Awesome work! What exact color is the color you use on the shields? And I believe you washed over them?
Made in de

Thanks! In case you mean the Naiads' shields you're right. Started with Vallejo Royal Blue, added more and more Goblin Green until pure Goblin Green. After let it dry, I washed the whole Shield with Agrax Earthshade.

Really enjoy the coral people (Reaper Saprolings?), nice colors. I've thought about using those minis in my Dark Fae NS army, so thanks for the scale-ish shot
