Default my necromancer conversion, painted.

this is a necromancer based on the 'new' battle wizards, i finally got round to painting it, it's not quite done yet. before i get ripped for the base, it was going to be a model i could switch between.

wow... I like the book details but it looks more like a bible than a Necro-book. Otherwise it's a 5/5 model

I'm not sure I'd agree with that entirely, my bible doesn't look nearly as sinister at that, but I guess Monolith's referring to the crusafix symbology which one might say is distinctly Christian. It's still a top notch mini though; certainly one to be proud of.

When I first saw this, I thought that somebody had necro'd an old topic or something, and the title had been changed by mods. :P

As for the model - that book looks great, it really could have been illuminated by a Medieval sorcerer, then left in a crypt for hundreds of years. The crucifix doesn't detract from the effect at all. The cloak highlighting is ace. One little thing - in the third pic, you seen to have slopped a little red from the cloak onto his arm, might want to clear that up. Do that, and this thing'll be pretty much flawless.

cheers dudes, but compared to a model i'm painting at the moment, it's rubbish.
anyway, i can't find the right look for the skin, i don't want it too fleshy, or too dead yet at the same time it needs to have a strange glow effect.

likewise, i was aiming for a green glow from the centre of the book. it doesn't show through because of the writing.

i'll finish this and put it back up, then i'll finish off what i'm working on.

i've always had problems with my own stuff, never particularly liked anything i've done. i guess once i've got over that, my models will start to look better.
