I just noticed, the black ork has a cloak! Can you take more pics of it Warhead? I have been looking for a hooded cloak design for quite some time now...

Sure, but I made it more than 25 years ago with an old done t-shirt and needle and thread. It's pure easy. The Hood is just a triangle-ish shape with the two opposite far corners stitched together. No big deal. If you still want more pics I'll take one or two tomorrow.

I would appreciate that very much, but yes. It sounds like an easy task. I attempted to make some out of paper and cardboard but failed epically...

Brilliant piece of storytelling!  'Kick a flower in the face....' Oh that made me laugh  :lol:

I'll be keen to see how your Dark Elves progress because what I can see so far is excellent.  Love the ballista.

I was wondering about that.  I like these guys for Dark Elf faces:

The merman heads are half the price and might also work:

The Merman looks cruel enough but at £1 each they aren't half the price enough. I got mine at 0.07p each and just need to either paint well (so far not good) or sticky their faces with some labels, draw in their faces with pen (pen for better control, none of that ink gel pish either) and then paint in the light grey covering the rest of the label. So far I haven't gotten around to it yet.

Go with clear decal material. You can print out a sheet of stuff and the cut it to apply what you want, head, torso, etc. You can also apply it on any color head or torso so print faces and apply it to grey for the dark elvis or yellow for your normal guys. etc.

Example of material:

:shock: What sort of Daemonic frothing at the mouth is this!

Next you'll be telling me you use the computer to print these things off the net. Ah-hahahaha, poor, poor deluded Hobo.

I wouldn't say that, it could be you ^__^

I don't really like it when Dark Elves are depicted as being really ugly since they're basically still Elves, the cruel look I encourage though :)

Look, I went with the whole decal paper and printer kick and I even printed off a few faces and the odd torso.  Then when my printer broke down I thought to myself, 'Why don't I just paint them?'  So now I paint everything and it's way more fun and I can get faces & etc as individual as I want.

I'd agree with you but unfortunately I'm determined to be a bit of an exception. I used to do stuff like this... WARNING: WARHEAD'S DOING A REPEAT, LOOK AWAY IF YOU'VE ALREADY HEARD THIS CRAP.

Now since my eye ops I can hardly do a face on a stupid mini-fig. That's one of the reasons I Brikwars now. 6mm was killing me.
