Post by: Yorkright


[img] Hello Dakka bloggers, Gitz has been after me to start a blog for some time so here goes. A little general information about me, I have been gaming since my teens (Ogre, D&D during the Gygax era) when I started painting some fantasy figures. When Space Hulk first came out I picked up the game and a few of my friends and I started playing. We loved the whole Alien feel about the game and decided to try some 40k when Rogue Trader was available.

I started playing Eldar and my brother collected Blood Angels, a few of our other friends played Space Wolves, Orcs and Genestealers. Our group played for about a year then broke apart from most of them moving away. I continued to pick up a few models and the boxed set from 2nd or 3rd edition, but really did not play again till the start of 6th edition. Pretty sure that is when I met Gitz and the rest of the boyz that I game with to this day.

Here is a few pictures of what I have been working on this year, I dont consider myself a artist but really enjoy the painting aspect of the game.

Thanks Gitz. Here is my first WIP. Build is done, plan is for a henchman of my Inquisitor.

Wow, that's some really lovely eldar! What army is the henchman marine for, I guess with 40k these days he and the inquisitor he goes with could be for your eldar

Yorkright and I have this long standing campaign going on between our armies. Originally, it was his Blood Angels vs my Mantis Warriors with an Inquisitor as the catalyst. Now it's expanded well beyond that. There's no telling which inquisitor this marine is intended for or what nefarious plot they will be hatching against our heroes... the noble Mantis Warriors!

Post by: Yorkright


Progress update: Was not happy with the red hammer, still not enthused but will go with the way it is now. Worked up the flesh tones, the reason I went with the purple was an attempt to make skin look warm. The armor is supposed to look battle damaged, does anyone have some pointers for that?

Thanks for looking.

I like what you've done with the battle damage... it may be a bit too subtle though. Perhaps a bit of sponge-chipping to get the idea across in a more obvious manner?

Head looks really good by-the-way. Always something I struggle with.

Very nice weathering! I like that you went for a drybrush approach rather than line highlighting, as it makes for a more believeable result IMHO. Have you any plans for basing yet?


Yorkright's blog: first Bushido model, Wu-Zang @ 2017/04/08 11:35:08


Post by: Gitsplitta


I think it looks really good Yorkright. Not too dense and concentrated in the forward-facing areas that are likely to take the most abuse.


Yorkright's blog: first Bushido model, Wu-Zang @ 2017/04/08 14:54:14


Post by: Yorkright


Thanks for the encouraging words guys. For basing I am leaning 2 ways, first is to base him as my other Inquisitor models the other is I have a box of the GW industrial bases. Going with the GW bases would mean changing over the others, most of those are metal and would be a pain to do.

Thanks for the comments fellows. Here is the first of my Inquisitors deathwatch, they do not wear the normal silver shoulder pads or adorn themselves with alot of Inquisitor bling. The story is the group introduced themselves to Jaxeena committing themselves to her cause, all their normal chapter markings have been covered up or scratched off. Most of the armor they wear is quite old and some have had to "find" replacement parts of dubious origin.

Looking through my rather large collection I found a few more old models that will be added to the Band. Will post after I rebase them.

Some random shots from my last game. Played my Ynarri against a friends orks, got to turn five when I had to concede. Last photo is the only one I have of playing against Gitz with da boyz. At the farside of the board you can make out his siccaran, da boyz clobbered his EC too.

Some shots from our local tournament, ITC event, 26 players and very competitive. I went 0-3 each game was close, lost by 2 pts each time.
Had a good time non withstanding, big plus we had a catered lunch by one of our local gamers who owns a lunch truck.

Post by: Yorkright


The problem I have with it is the paint is a bit thick and the symbol looks a bit clunky, now that I have added some battle damage and turned him into a black shield it doesn't look so bad. I also showed the mark to see if anyone would react to the Chapter it represents :-). Should have an updated photo soon.

@EDC thanks for the compliment on the Eldark and triumvirate they were fun to paint and worth all the extra time I put into them.

Thinning your paint might help, and for small symbols, working 'inside out' allows you to correct with the next layer of paint. As for the chapter: my smurf lore is rather limited I'm afraid

Sterling stuff, its nice to see the return of the red bolter casing.
How are you doing the combat blades? They look quite different to the default ones in Calth and Prospero.

Post by: Yorkright


@ EDC and Justerin thanks for the input, greatly appreciated. I almost tore the whole thing apart last night thinking it did not look quite right. Will post a pic soon of how the painting is coming along.

@Gummy my weathering is mostly sponge chipping with light wash of Agrax Earthshade. I took a look at your weathering and thought it looked great.

@Daemonjellybaby the combat blade is a small conversion using the blade from the Aspiring Champion and then gluing it to the hilt of the combat blade in the Calth box. Wish I had more of them to convert with.

Blue wash, then a black/brone drybrush for the nozzle does wonders. If you have weathering powders, does are also brilliant for adding a nice burnt crust

4th Marine done, really like how the sword turned out, tried a few new things with his face. Purple base then built up the flesh tones went back with a purple wash then some reiksland flesh wash to finish. CC always appreciated. Next up is the last Deathwatch member, will post up some pics of him soon.

Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks guys. Here is the last member of my kill team, primed with a little bit of zenithal airbrushing. Having a hard time deciding which legion he is from, first choice was world eaters but I have enough CC for now. How about some input? Has to be from one of the traitor legions other than Deathguard, Iron Warriors, T sons or Emperors Children.

I was going to say Iron Warriors, but actually since he's got the brush thing on his head I'might leaning towards Emperor's Children.

Maybe an astral claw? Or does he have to be 30K-ish? In that case a word bearer might fit in nicely?

(*showing blatant ignorance of the subject)

Could be a Mantis Warrior maybe?

But seriously, he does look awesome, is it World Bearers that are white with blue trim? Though he looks very awesome in black.

My excuse is they is all just tinned food for me Waagh! Don't care what brand they be, they all dies the same....

Got quite a few options so far, will wait till after 9 my time and see how the votes turn out. Astral Claws is not a bad choice but I am going with the traitor legions, of course we know that the Mantis Warriors have a bit of a "reputation" but will leave them out of this group.

Here is an updated picture, got quite a bit of the grav gun done and blocked in some of the metallics.

Thanks again for the input!

Well, several chapters, including the Mantis Warriors were called "Legions" early on in 40k history... before GW codified the term "legion" to have a specific meaning referring to the original founding of SMs..

My bad Gitz, the meaning is minimum amount of troops and maxing out on the best or over powered units.

My basing is pretty much the same across the majority of my armies. Black base with some tundra grass, black grit and maybe some small rocks.

Tactical squad finished for now. I need to get new transfers and find a good tutorial on how to make them lay flat on a curved surface. Will post up some pics of the rest of my 30k army this weekend. My thoughts are to do a support squad armed with heavy bolters next or a primos medicae.

OK, I'll play "bad cop"... I mean Tom...

I think the figures would be much more dynamic if there was more contrast in your red. Darks much darker, and a brighter up-shade. Don't get me wrong, they look nice now... but the armor is pretty flat-looking. Would be a lot more exciting with darker darks and lighter lights.

Hi Yorkright!

So much win here- and lots for me to attempt to emulate. I very much like your use of color- especially with the Eldar (I've recently started picking up Eldar units with an eye towards building a 1250 point force- I've never played them before). I'm like you in that I play the game to have the opportunity to kitbash, convert and paint. I'm having a ball trying out new techniques on vehicles at the moment, but your use of shading and highlight have me itching to try to improve my skills on figures. Terrific work all around, with excellent attention to detail.

@EDC thank you, looks like Blood Angels are going to be good in 8th edition may have to run the apothecary as a Sanguinary Priest too.

@Meercat thanks for stopping by, I have been playing Eldar for decades and they were my first army you will enjoy them as most of their units are good. Stopped over on your blog and must say you are quite the converter really good stuff there.

@Moltar thank you, might be trying out the Devastators tonight in a 30k game along with the Apothecary.

Have not had time for any updates lately. Life gets busy sometimes. There is a tournament coming up soon, 2000 pts 8th edition rules. Digging out my deathcompany and some that I bought from one of our local gamers. My old beakies need some chainswords added, plus I have to re base the new models. Here is a WIP pic of them, once I decide on my full list will toss out a picture of the army.

DC looks cool, which are yours? I am guessing the stoney bases and the greens are from your friend.

The red marines are looking great, that Apothacary is looking sweet, could do with some pics...hint hint.

Totally personal thing here, but I don't mind the slightly flatter red you have going, it is a bit different to all the deep reds that are about, and adds a nice muted tone more in keeping with military styles than bright eye popping colours that yell, "here I am!" But if you want to follow the crowd, then Gits is spot on, some deeper shadows and a few crisp highlights. It is all looking great, you have a great style of painting, really good work.

Hey guys,

@WarbossDakka , Yeah they should be alot of fun to play, who doesnt like half crazed steroid fueled madmen with chainaxes!

@Cam Thank you I like the flat red too, did bring up the reds and darkened up the shadows, I shall try and get some photos of him up soon. Been busy with the DC so the Apothecary and Heavy Bolters are on the back burner.

@Solar Lion I have been using the online rules, the FLGS owner and I are good friends so he has let me know how the Blood Angels work. The stormraven is a beast so if you have 2 of those they do alot of work.

Pictures of my 8th edition tournament army plus a few for Cam of my apothecary.
Army consists of 2 Vangaurd Detachments and one Assassin detachment.
Dante, Sanguinor, Mephiston and Sanguinary Priest as HQs
5 man unit of jump pack d/c with 1 thunderhammer, 1 with power sword and 1 with plasma pistol.
5 man unit of jump pack d/c with 1 power sword and 1 plasma pistol.
5 man unit of jump pack d/c with 1 power sword.
5 man unit of d/c with one power axe.
5 man unit of d/c with 1 power fist.
4 man unit of sanguinary guard, one with plasma pistol and one with power fist.
1 Storm Raven with assault cannons, multi meltas and hurricane bolters.
2 Rhino Transports with extra stormbolters.
1 Eversor Assassin.

Not sure how it will perform, but should be fun to play. Mephiston is in so I can try out some psychic abilities plus he is a beast in CC. Hoping to give it a try on this Wednesday night as our local FLGS has a copy of the rules.

I could not make the tournament this weekend, Saturday got filled with work and fixing the deck. Did pop open the new boxed set of 8th edition and put together some of the PM's. Then stayed up till 2 basecoating and painting, Sunday was a bit of a drag. Here is a few pictures my progress.
In case you were wondering the tournament was won with a Tzeentch army, brimstones, heralds, flamers, LOC and a Knight. He went 3 and 0, second place went a dark Eldar player.

Hey guys, life has been busy and I am still working on those Plague Marines. Went and hunted thru some of my older armies and thought I would post up some pics of my Ultramarines. Built this detachment to ally with my blood angels as they had no access to grav at the time, they have only seen the tabletop twice since I painted them. If there is some interest I could post up some pics of my other "boxed"armies.

You planning on adding to the Ultras, or are you just going to leave them as a small discrete force? At least they fit into a Patrol Detachment as they are.

The Ultramarines will stay as is for awhile, still getting my head wrapped around 8th edition.

@Dr. H, they were not too bad to paint. Though they are busy with a lot details I tried to keep things simple and stuck with GW's color scheme. My favorite part to paint was their plague knives I probably put more work into some of those than other details. Definitely looking forward to seeing yours painted.

The base is one of the texture paints from GW, Agrellan earth, and the pus is several layers of the Nurgles Rot technical paint. I will have to look thru my parts and see if I have any scenery I could use.

Up next is the poxwalkers, saw that someone had used shades and inks to paint them so, I am going to give it a go. Started with a black primer then did some zenithal painting using a light gray, then finished with some white sprayed from directly above. The walkers with the great coats and mallets will probably get a bit more attention.

Nice work on the plague drone. I like the idea of a little busted brick wall. You could also possibly do just the hand of a skeleton coming out of the pus(or that's what's left as it's being dissolved by the pus). But only a tiny piece as I really think less is more with these nurgle guys as they are super detailed and a clean base would be such a great contrast.

@ Cam, thanks looking forward to your take on the Deathguard.
@ Theo, I am inclined to agree with you they have so much detail less may mean more. Not sure I have any skeleton bitz around other than some skulls.
@ Gitz,yes they are grey... but here is shot of my test model. Took me approximately one hour to shade, paint and base.

What do you guys think?

Looks great, especially for only an hour of work time. Skulls could work too on the bases, possibly coat them with the nurgle rot technical paint to make it look like they have been dissolved by some nasty weapon. It could also explain the lack of vegetation as it all wilted and dissolved.

Only thing I can think to add to the base would be dying plants (as that's the idea I have to do on my plague models).

If you want some different pics let me know and I will take a few more.

They are looking spectacular bud, really great work, I mean it.

To keep it simple why not just add damp patches where they have been!, a few darkned foot prints, a scrape or or two of blood/pus, a few drips under them, kinda make it look like they are leaking wet pus all over the place, would only need a few dribbles of paint and a coat of varnish on the specific bits, would animate them, and just add that bit of interest. I think it would look cool with the dry bases you have, which are looking brilliant BTW.

Howdy Yorkright- I don't game these critters but I don't have to to recognize the skill that went into articulating, painting and basing these! Great work!

Thanks all for the compliments. Gone back and worked on the bases, took Cams advise and added some nurgles rot and purple wash around their feet. On the drone I added the skull in a puddle of rot. (Thanks Theo and Graven :-), does it look like its dissolved?).

A technique I have used which I feel works great is to pool wood glue on your base and then while it's still wet, drip a few drops of super glue on top. It will make the surface wrinkle up. Looks like some really serious sludge. Great for dissolved bodies.

^ That's a genius idea, stolen!
And yeah, looks great my absolute go to for any kind of goo or weathering is... paint water. I kid you not. 90% of the time it's an ultra thin greybrown wash, effectively. Great for streaks and stains.

Looks sweet...we'll as sweet as dissolved flesh can look . I always underestimate a purple wash. I hear people use it all the time, but my natural reaction is black or brown.

@ Senna will have to try that out.
@ Graven I am a modeling plagiarizer.
@ Theo, I do like the purple wash, makes for some great bruised effects, also it works well with purple cloaks.

Here is a quick pic of the plague caster. Why did they have to make his face look
like he is blowing bubbles?

Been getting a few hours of fun work in, Plaguecaster finished and next set of Poxwalkers started. Not real happy with the caster, broke one of his sashes and cracked one of his horns when I dropped him. At my current speed I should have Deathguard done by the nod of September.
Again thanks for looking

Nice work, York'.

I have significant changes planned for the plaguecaster, dunno what yet.
But seeing your's I can now see what GW was going for with the smoke and fat (blowing) face... will still need to change it somehow.

Finally finished the next set of walkers, thought I would toss in a pic of what I have finished so far. Two more Deathguard to go, will post a WIP when I decide which one to start on.

Hoping to get the codex this weekend and perhaps some other things.. then get a game in.

@Cam thanks, disgusting is the latest fashion in 40k.

@Gitz wishing we could get a game in too.

@Dr H thank you :-)

Starting laying down some colors on the lord of sneezes and snuffles. The model is a bit intimidating but now that I have started getting psyched to finish him. Going with the standard GW colors but with some extra rust.
Again thanks for looking.

Not sure why the pics are sideways, will retake later so you don't have to turn your screen side ways..

Those Poxwalkers look ace the building up of colour with shades and inks has worked an absolute treat!

Oh, and extra rust never goes amiss

Post by: Yorkright


Thanks a Gitz, I may need some CC on the cloak. Trying to make it look more like cloth any suggestions?

@ Ynead thank you, I really love the poxwalkers and may try to get some more. Thinking about running Typhus with a couple of large blobs.

Here is a little update on the Contagion lord, want to thank Dr H for his help with the rust. I did not have all the things he normally uses but his technique for dabbing the wash on the rusted parts with your finger works great.

That is looking fantastic.

I am far from someone to advise on painting, but Bebop does this thing with lots of dots that really makes it look like cloth, I tend to do a cross hatching method with the highlights, make it look like material, mind you mine probably comes out more like hessian than fine cloth. I am sure one of your fellow painters will help you out here.

I suggest talking to graven, he's mastered cloakes.

Post by: Ynneadwraith


Eeeew! He's looking just the right shade of sickly for a nurglite Lord

Must give Bebop's blog a look for that little dots method. The only one I've figured out so far is successive washes to make something look like leather...

You're most kind.

I dunno, man, I like your cloak a lot I think you need some softer highlights in there, maybe a thin 50/50 of your purple with decahala lilac and then blended whilst still wet up to the edges with the lilac. I'd then wash it with thinned greenshade - I'm very into using contrasting colours for washes - and a little camosahde in the deepest recesses also, and take the final highlights up again with lilac thinned with a little wolf grey or similar. I'll do an example of something similar over on my blog. Needed an excuse to start Dr Fate and Martian Manhunter

Hope that helps!

Post by: Yorkright


Went back and redid the cloak, took out the reds and took,the highlights up to a light purple. Added a green wash of thinned warp stone green. Thanks for the tips Graven I think the cloak looks richer and has more contrast from the rusted mail.

Thanks for all the help and comments.

Fantastic job on the cloak, the whole mini is stunning, really nice work, can't wait to get to mine now. I have no idea of list building or playing for that matter, but I bought the Nurgle Daemon Starter Box to expand on my Dark Imperium dudes. Will be doing a few conversions myself as well, a rhino etc. You have really flown through these mini's and done an amazing job too.

Lordy chap looks great. Cloak turned out well, and nice job on the rusty bits (how'd you find the method, easy ain't it?)

@Cam thank you, I am looking forward to your DG build and all the wonderful conversions you do.
@Gitz will keep you updated on a possible game when I can get together.
@Shasolenzabi, got to love the Ooze
@Orlando after visiting your blog I think folks should check out your converted foetid blight drone it is so cool. Poxies are some of my favs to paint and pretty easy to finish and get on the table.
@Dr. H Rusty bitz? Some guy I know had some great advice you should check him out (thanks again) same with the cloak some other fella gave me some advice for that too (thanks graven). Yours are probably taking longer cause I am an out of the box, slap some paint on em gamer while you are an outside the box painter. Most of the folks on DakkaDakka seem to do a lot of conversion work and I am envious of those skills.

See you on the flippty flip.
