Nerdfest09's NEW blog with Whalemusic's Hellephant & Gross Chaos Spawn @ 2017/10/22 10:33:52


Post by: nerdfest09


Hey everyone, I have decided to re start my blog since sadly there's about 200 pages of my original one that has no images to see thanks to Photobucket and their fantastic business skills and client support ..... or lack thereof

So, on a positive note I have found some older images of the Primarchs I've done and thought they'd be a nice start to the new improved blog and might entice a few newer faces to start following my progression and projects as I learn and convert and hopefully come up with some ideas to astound and amaze

I have some work for RiTides coming up very soon which i'm looking forward too and i'm pretty sure Whaley will find something for me to do so please help me out guys and keep me going by linking or keep commenting so I can pick up speed and not fade into Dakka history

Now! let's get Primarching!

Fulgrim is still one my favorite models I have painted in my time and feel I really did him justice and gave him the right amount of dark & light, bling & beauty, he was a one of the first I did for someone else and I got to try new things and play around more than I had previously, this is something I carried through with each progressive primarch I painted trying to learn and do things a bit better and more interesting.




Vulkan was a great experiment on a sort of candy paint effect on his armour, it led me onto the way I do my metals now.



Horus was fun, a real test to bring him to life with his face as a focal point and really good spot colours to work in with the black armour.




A more recent addition was Conrad Kurze, not being a fan of blue since it's a colour I find hard to get right I tried a darker technique and think it looks pretty good.



Ferrus was my Primarch in a day fun, I wanted to start and finish him in one sitting, I really enjoyed the blending of the metals into his arms flesh tone on this one.



Another of my favorite models I have painted was rather suprisingly Lorgar, his pose and base gave me a reason to do things a little different with lighting and try to evoke his chapters background, golden skin and history.



Lastly for today I have another completely different style of Primarch, Mortarion, an awesomely fun model with so much scope for weathering and environmental effects, toning them down to look realistic was the hard part.



and one last pic of a little group shot of the guys that Whaley has in his display



So welcome young and old I hope to bring you hundreds of pages more with updates of all the older finished models I managed to save pics for!

Oh Whaley you sound so begrudging to follow I am working on your Enkomi model now for you so I can send them to you with Conrad and get ready for whatever you find to get painted!

So in keeping with my re posting of older works I've got more to put up today for you to see and bring back memories!

The biggest baddest reddest flyingest box eva! my old Flesh Eaters StormRaven.



A little toe in the water for a Badab force when I wanted to do Howling Griffons.



A Bug, .......a BIG bug! gifted to Gitsplittas sons army, I just wanted to have a go at something like this.




and lastly for today a small change of pace with two Hordes models.




I'll have some more tomorrow guys!

I think i'll post some of the old pics each time I get a reply until I run out it's great for me too since I get a buzz out of remembering the models and it might inspire me with something I forgot about!

So lets see what I have in the folder tonight......


Looks like it's Gits' Admech army I worked on for him and a couple of Imperial Fists These were so much fun to paint and working with the candy red and pairing it with the metals was a new style for me.






and the Imperial fist squad I started with, particularly it's the sergeant I am happy with the most, his face just looks good

Thanks guys, it's really nice to see you still keen to re visit some of the work i've done that I managed to save, I kinda forgot how much stuff i've actually painted it's going to be a decent ride seeing them all again!

I've got some more Imperial Fists, a Nurgle dude and some more Whaley work.

Nurgle herald up first today with a bit of an experiment on different texture and colour blends.




Group shot of Whaley's Sallies assault marines, not too old but here they are again



Staying with the group theme, the Grey Knights converted beautifully by BigH that I got to paint.



Imperial Fists Sternguard and Landraider! I do miss that yellow........





and finally a Chaos Warrior for the Gorechosen arena.

Post by: nerdfest09


Happy be Theseus, full of vexation I come against my daughter Hermia!

so firstly, yes, comments glean more pics until I run out and second, thinning my paint isn't a precise technique for me, usually I wet my brush, then lick it and grab paint from the edge of my colour on the palette if it needs more I repeat until it's right. the secret is I generally always end my colours with a wash over everything to tie them together.

and now today is another of my personal favorites i've painted, the Knight Atropos for RiTides! I just love how she turned out, the metals, the weathering, the yellow, the textures, just everything I think worked perfectly and i'm proud of this paint job.







and relevant models that belong with the big girl are a Magos and his thralls, I really love the yellow and brown theme on the Magos, a little different but looks striking!





I think in the folder coming up soonish is my most bestest favoritest model I've painted and it may come as a suprise which one it is!

I might have to experiment with some yellow on some AdMech stuff myself, it gives a wonderfully industrial feel that you don't really get from the red as that evokes more of a religious feel.

So here it is, the model I have painted that for some reason I just really love, I don't know what it is about it, it could be the sculpt or scheme I used or even the feeling it evoked in me as I painted her but I am just really happy with that paint job and how it looks.

also got some more Gits' models to show and another addition to RiTides Admech.





Ancient Admech.




Tanky transporty thingy........ just cool and brutal looking!

You're right to be proud of Greyfax there. That burnished gold look for her armour is drop-dead gorgeous.

What was the technique?

She's a stunner NF, love all those metals kicking around with a little brown / red to drive the warmth home

Also holy fakk those AdMech! So much whimsical weirdness combined with brutal af vehicles

Annnnd one more gush, this is one of the first times I've really appreciated the FW primarchs. Bros look fantastic, especially gathered together.

Thanks guys, I should have some new painting wip tomorrow to show but for now we delve back into the gross Nurgley goodness and some tt Space Wolf guys

Greyfax's armour was the same recipe as my normal gold but I used more layers to get it sort of silvery gold. does this mean that because this is a new blog I get a chance to re do all the tutorials that ask about?

Nurgle...... Ewwwwwww





And the Wolves characters

Wow no love for Cawl! o.k I get it.........you want new wip?


here's my sniper scouts for my Minotaurs work in progress, I wanted them to still have the autumnal colours of the reds ochres and bronze metallic but still look as if they could hide and infiltrate and look 'right' next to their brethren the heads are from a place on Facebook called KF studios, they do some extremely cool Night Lords upgrades and models as well





and a little wip on Whaley's Enkomi, I'm approaching him slowly as i'm still working out his style. Blacker? verdigris? not sure but i'll work it out. he trusts me........

Since it's still kinda new, Nurgle needs a bit more re-love so here's the Nurgle Prince I did and something that could happily squish it into paste, probably a foul slimy rancid paste!

Absolutely have to follow this blog! You painting legend - I love the camo and colours on the Guard above.

Was the yellow paint you referred to last page Iyanden Darksun, by any chance? I must say, I do miss the old Foundation paints too, particularly Dheneb Stone. They all had a nice pastel hue which looked very natural. Still, the new range is awesome!

Stellar work, nerdy, thanks for sharing it all with us!

I just went and checked the paints I used for yellow work, so this is the way I do it.

The Army Painter Desert Yellow as a base, then wash with Agrax earthshade, next it's Flash Gitz yellow to start the yellow staining focused on the highest points and blended down with a damp brush after application. Next it's the same method but using Vallejo Model Color Lemon yellow, then last highlight is Vallejo Model Color Yellow Green and finished off with a wash of Cassandora yellow shade. if you need to or want to you can add another final small highlight of the yellow green again in spots.

Thanks for the comprehensive breakdown, nerdfest! Really intricate process, and looks fantastic I’ve been using The Army Painter’s Skeleton Bone with a wash of Casandora Yellow for my Nids. It works quite nicely, but it’s certainly on the cartoony side.

Thanks again, nerdy, keep up the awesome work!

(I second the tank commander’s magnificent goggles! Clearly, The Imperium is for the kool kids (or should it be Orks?))

The Space Wolves and the Lictor are probably my favourites among your work, Damo. The Lictor in particular looks very "real": believably akin to some kind of crustacean or insect with the mottled skin effect and the natural tones.

Sweet God Damn! All of these are absolutely and utterly stunning, especially the Nurgly guys but especially the Slaaneshi daemons. Can't believe I hadn't taken the time to pore over your old plog to find these before.

Thanks for the painting tip on the silver-highlighted gold. I've just started experimenting with highlighting stuff with different colours (so something other than a lighter version of the same colour). Excited to try it on golds

Truly magnificent. And so important that your hair looks good shooting from far far away, so they called the Point Break Stylists. Just kidding about, they really look the business, the cloaks are superb, and really match the theme well.

Thanks guys, it was a bit of fun making them look a little more camouflage but still marines from the Minotaurs chapter.

I have just built a marine to paint as an Excorcist since I have a long arching goal to paint each chapter who was part of the Badab War and it gives me a model to do a red video tutorial :-)

I also found a old marine primed desert yellow so I can do a yellow tutorial as well. and I started assembling a Christmas present for my Neice i'll grab some pics this arvo.

I got a little bit more done on the two Chaplains, one for Whaley and my own for my Mino's trying to get beaten black armour isn't a real easy task! so while it doesn't look like much progression hopefully once the brighter colours are done like the bone and reds it will look decent enough!

so here's Whaleys Chaplain first up. (Whaley do you want the stripe on his shoulder to be red or yellow?)




and my own Chaplain to lead my Assault Squad.



I mentioned I was building a model for my niece for a Christmas present for her and I wanted something feminine but not too sexual or too dark since she's only 8 I decided on the Yvraine? model as a warrior elf princess (that's how i'll describe her) I started by getting the basics done on the base for her, sort of a glade i'm hoping for with a small pool and I'll add some small flowers from the scenic companies to make it look pretty not really much progress on her except the base colours and a wash mainly, the pale gold has been worked on but I'll touch it up after the skin in case I get any on the parts.

Last of the old pics I found! not that old though I wish I had the FW Admech pics or something cool, but here's Asterion Moloc for my Mino's






So i'm working on Whaley's Chaplain still and also a few more Mino's which I'll update soon as I get time, I'm sorry i've been so quiet it's not by choice, my new job has a steep learning curve and mentally exhausting but still extremely rewarding and i'm finding my feet as far as my painting time and hobby goes. Please don't give up on me i'm not going to disappear

I like what you've done with Yvrainne, I almost think that model works better with the fantasy aesthetic you're going for than the sci-fi one (though personally I'd swap the sword out for one without the power pack just to really sell it).

Good to see Asterion again, that is such a badass paintjob.

Chaplain love today! 2 models, both Enkomi from the Minotaurs Chapter but both slightly different, my own slightly converted to lead my assault squad and Whaley's version as he should be I struggle with black since I don't have a specific way I can turn to to paint it, so I sort of mixed a bit of metals through it and used scratches as highlights and pure black as the darker shadows.

I like them both, especially the bone on the handle, shame I couldn't use anything like that on mine, oh well, live and learn











and I started my assault squad for the Chappy to lead! main armour colour is done and started smoking the jet packs a bit.

Thanks guys, I love the idea of the assault marines just barrelling forward and getting to grips with the enemy, hence such a large squad of them and it's really cool that I used the original pose of the Enkomi model and just put him on a differently angled terrain on his base and he looks heaps different, of course different arms help

I did a bit more on the model for my Neice for Christmas and she's really taking shape now, the colours are really nice together and look very whimsical for an 8 year old to enjoy! I painted little dots of cream and white and yellow to give the impression of small flowers in the grassland.

Bit too hard to define them more, they are kinda brushed onto the flock, not what i wanted to do originally but I wasn't spending 20 bucks buying small flowers :-)

I am totally behind the flowers nerdy. I think they really add to the base and enhance the figure. The trane (sp?) of the dress is amazingly beautiful. One of the best executions of this area I've ever seen done on this figure.

What an interesting way to paint black, I NEVER would have thought to use scratches of all things to highlight it. Fantastic work on those two.

As for the Yvraine, the little flowers do its job quite well, fills the otherwise completely green area. A nice touch is the darker grass being on the side of the rocks, and the almost blend up to light green to the right is really impressive. The colour choice is obviously quite bold, but I think she suits it well. Not a lot of models I'd reckon would work as well as the Yvraine has, but nevertheless great progress on her!

Thank you so much Gits, that's some mighty nice words to read about Yvraine, I'm going for an entire picture with her and the base, it's as a display for a little girl and I think the bold colours and style will make it look pretty and princess like and still make a good looking Yvraine model to enjoy

Thank ye Warboss! she's a really beautiful model and I wanted to have a reason to paint her, it may not be painted to fluff but I'm liking it so far!

Thanks again guys, I got a couple of boxes today from some people who live far away and want me to paint stuff for them again! :-) so now i've opened them and seen the contents you'll be seeing some more regular updates as I'll have to make sure I get some painting in each week! and while they're not 40K models they'll still be the ignition of me trying some new schemes and blends!

So I got a little box with 3 models to paint for RiTides and couldn't help myself so I immediately got assembling, converting and painting! and now they're done all in the space of less than 48 short hours! I know I need to go to hobbyists anonomous.

I hope you enjoy these models, they're really well cast and crisp as hell! and with a little tweaking I managed to come up with hopefully 3 individual looking models.

nerdfest: Hi everyone, my name is nerdfest. I love painting and modelling miniatures! Sometimes I get the jitters if I haven't done any hobby-related activities for a couple of hours. I have come to meet others like myself. So, that's that, really!

Organiser: Thank you for being honest and sharing, nerdfest! That is most interesting, and a help to us all. And yourself? [Gestures to Bloke, sat next to nerdfest.]

Bwahahahahahahaha you will never know the secret!

But the reason you can't find anything is either because A: It's not in this new blog or B: It was in the old one and Photobucket RUINED IT FOR EVERYONE YOU BASTARDS!!!!!!!

I also am going to use it on my Goliath when they arrive it'll make the armour super easy to do and give heaps of variation if you want it! on the robots I just did it was like this, the basics you'll need are silver paint as a base then you'll need seraphim sepia, nuln oil (and any other colour washes if you want to change it up a bit) an orange, and for the final highlights a nice mithril type silver.

*silver base
*wash sepia
*wash area with very watered orange paint
*wash black
*pick out silver edges and scratches

That's the basic formula but you can play around with it a bit for different looks, the order you lay the washes also makes for subtle differences it the final look so have a go and pop your progress on here if you like? i'd love to see it!

The 3-man robot unit is just ace, and you varied them up really nicely!

Sliding in on our DM's Whaley!

speaking of Whaley here's my next commission lot! I primed and just started getting a feel for them today, so not a brilliant lot of paint but more to just show you what I'll be working on which is more fantasy based models and they are excellent and very characterful, the big ones are amazing and the smaller humans etc are still good although there's a few lines here and there that are pretty tricky to get too but nothing that should deter from the painting.

group shot of all of them,


This one is a firm favorite of mine! Hellephant!



Earth Golem


Fire Elemental


warriors


a cat warrior, a demon warrior and a wind elemental


metal dude and a werewolf!


Water elemental! awesome looking if confusing model, should I do the 'armour' areas in shell/bone colour or lobster/crab red?


and a damn Unicorn!

I may add some more colour on the Unicorn just for you Whaley but for now here's a few updates on some of them. I added more base colours and worked on a couple getting some details worked out, so far they are coming along nicely and I think the cartoon style will look really cool on this style of figures.

So, this is the fire guy, I think I may get it to look better by painting the flames upside down? eg brighter at the top instead of bottom where the heat is. still heaps to play around with on this one.


Little Demon guy has been given some brass and a wash, very much reminds me of a bloodletter, even in posing.


Stone Golem is probably the closest to being done, also one of my favorites from the box.


Tin man, I wanted a different metal on him so i've gone a dark bronze.


Now this water elemental is so far my favorite as far as painting goes! I wanted to try for a look to give it the power of the sea with blues greens and greys in his scheme, also I was inspired by Bebopdrums and I am trying to work on the seashell armour and give it a pearlescent finish like the inside of an abalone?


Wood elf type model, just the usual earthy tones here.


Hellephant, has had base colours added and a wash to bring out some details. most of the brown parts will be gold.

I think the fire elemental will be hard to really judge until you paint the cage part on him, which should make the flames really pop.

Finished the first of the models for Whaley, the Stone Golem is done. I wanted to get one finished to use as a standard for the rest which is great except i'm struggling with the flame elemental so I'll do him next and then back to this style. but until then have a look at this guy and see what you think!

and yes Tinman's weapon is indeed a little bent from the last post, I tried the normal hot water fix but it followed the whim of the gods wouldn't stay how I wanted! I 'could' cut the haft out completely and use some rod to make a new straighter weapon? Whaley? what do you want mate?

Re tin man: I know photos can make things seem worse then they are, so I'll leave it to your judgement. If its real wonky then cut away, but if it's just a little bent maybe he wacked someone too hard.

Re Earth Elemental: The skin and the brick wall look wonderful, and the browns and greens set it off nicely.

Thanks guys have a Fire elemental next in line! he was hard to paint because my style doesn't allow for much murky areas in sculpts and the blending of flames and his brazier cage armour made it hard for me to like what I was painting, so I had to keep putting him next to Golem to see if his overall look worked next to him rather than following my usual methods of paint.

hope he passes muster.

Let me know what you think. Some of the combos that both the players and the enemies can get are pretty brutal, so don't be surprised if you get in trouble. It's also most balanced with 3-4 players. Fewer and you can get stuck, more and there are issues with pure model count on mobs.

Try it with 1 each, then add if you are really getting stuck. It is significantly more to track as opposed to zombicide, so running multiple is harder.

Yo dudes. more updates today, a little wip that should be finished completely tomorrow and my Goliath gang starts!

Working on the Werewolf.


Claytons Legolas the elf you have when you're not having an elf.


Skinny Deamon


And now the beginning of my Necromunda gang! the Blackstone Rust Miners. I wanted a sort of real world feel to them slightly so I shaved off the spikes and gave them the orange and fluro yellow like workmen. the armour is going to be beat to hell since I want it to look more like actual protection for mining.




As you see them the armour has been silver, washed with agrax and washed with watered down orange paint. more to come......

Was going to do the same re:Goliath mohawks, looks good on your team of working lads. Also I'm struck by how much that bloke with the stub cannon to the left in the second pic looks like Dave Bautista I guess it's Drax tattoos for my version of him

Everyone says what I want to comment on, weathering on the metals is always so good Nerdy. If anything a kudos on how the water elemental turned out love the water effects on the model.

Thanks guys, those Goliath are going to be really fun to just play around with hopefully I can do the tattoos o.k, that'll be the challenge. that guy that looks like Batista is called 'Barracuda' after the guy he resembles from the Punisher comics

I also finished those other 3 guys! they look pretty sweet!






I've done a little more on the Goliath gang and I'm loving the easy messy stage i'm at just getting colours and washes done so more updates on the boys later.....

Hey everyone! got another 2 of Whaley's models done and some more metal work on the Goliath's

Let's start with Whaley's favorite model in his collection! he specifically told me to do this one really nicely because he LOVES Unicorns and this is the model he wants to put beside his bed at night! awwww he's such a softie!






Next up is an Air Elemental, I wanted to make her different than the Water Elemental and give her colours more akin to storm clouds with some nice grey and darker blues and white in the mix, the bolt was just a bit of fun to reinforce the fury of the wind and storm.





Now it's my Blackstone Rust Miners, I think i'm done with the metals or i'll just keep going in circles washing and scratching and never say done next up i'll start on the clothing!

I think your niece's model has come together brilliantly. Storm elemental looks incredible, pretty pretty unicorn, and can't believe that's the Munda guys still unfinished - I assumed they were done They are fab.

Thanks Graven I cut a few corners with the Elf Princess and painted her as if she had showing skin instead of the bodysuit but i'm pretty happy with her all together! a nice little present for Christmas. The Necromunda guys have only had the base colours done and the metals finished! so yes mate still a way to go! I need desperately to get new brushes, i've been putting it off for a month or more since my local supply store shut up at the start of the year! then I can do the tattoos!

Time to introduce you to the individuals in my Goliath gang! they are NOT finished yet but at least getting to the point where you can see what sort of look i'm going for dirty hi-vis coveralls with faded worn areas on the knees etc. and still sporting the reflective patches for when they're working in those filthy rust mines scraping the filings off the pinions holding the spires together .

My big plan is to add tattoos as an experiment on most of them, it's going to be hard because I love the look of painted skin maybe I just won't go as overboard as I thought I would.

only one has an actual name so far. but I can't work out which one is going to get it

Thank you gentlemen, I shall endeavor to get more done at my earliest convenience! they are fun to paint but as usual I felt the need to build them with slight modifications when it came to their visage and now I need to find a nice new brush somewhere to get them finished :-)

Just came across your work and wow. Had a couple questions about your minotaurs? I find it hilarious that I picked the same martian ironearth for the bases.... but are you still doing your minotaur armor the same as in your youtube video here?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5Ci4LFHO4g

And how do you do your reds?

Hey nintura, you bet I still do my Minotaurs the same as my video just haven't worked on them much lately and my reds, people really seem to like my reds! I have tried to get a video for it but it never shows the colours how I want to, I'll write you up a small tutorial with the colours I use when I get a chance if you'd like?

but until then I can show a couple more finished miniatures

3 more of Whaley's horde finished up, the two warrior women really didn't photograph well while they're not as good as the Hellephant they're a little better than shown but hey! at least the Hellephant looks good! he was the model that encouraged me to pester Whaley until he agreed for me to paint them all

Post by: nintura


Yes sir, that would be great. I'm trying to refine the wash method and get used to it. They still come out a bit splotchy in the end and I think it's due to adding to much Sepia at once. And I think on this latest batch I did them too dark? A second wash did not seem enough but a third made them too dark once I got them outside. So not sure


Nerdfest09's NEW blog with Whalemusic's Hellephant & Gross Chaos Spawn @ 2017/12/31 01:48:42


Post by: nerdfest09


Firstly Nintura, please feel free to post your progress on here so we can have a look without seeing how you're going i'd only suggest that for the sepia you might use less for the subsequent coats and really push it around, it might not feel like you're washing the model as much but trust me even a light coat does change the colour.

and secondly I've finished another model for Whaley! i'm calling this the Chaos spawn as it looks amazingly perfect for what a spawn should be in my mind. very twisted and fleshy, I wanted to do it 'dry' so it was obviously a twisted creature with some wet parts. I really like how it turned out hence it didn't take me long to finish because I enjoyed painting it and wanted to keep going with my vision of how it looks.








And here are the next three i'm working on, not sure about the tentacle beast but I think I want to do eyes on him on those boils?

The Overseer was designed so that those were all eyes to begin with, so I'd definitely go for that

Technically the Chaos Spawn/Nightmare Thing was covered in eyes too, but you've really made it your own by painting them as boils; I love it

The spawn actually was doing my head in. It is so beautifully outrageous I was having a hard time figuring out what I was looking at, But I guess that means you hit the brief of a spawn right on. Good work.

Here you go. First model tested. I find it hilarious we both picked the Martian Ironearth for the base, but I did borrow your purple This one I feel I did too much on the scratching because the lamp I used didnt show it as well.

Dudes and dudettes I have another model

This is sort of a dragon ogre? I actually really quite like the job on him but he was hard to photograph which is a shame because I thought the photo's looked good on the camera the skin looks cool and I wanted to shy away from just doing an Ork green style on him, his face sadly didn't have as much detail as the rest of the sculpt but overall he's pretty beastly looking, I can tell you now I wouldn't want to meet him in a cave somewhere! Oh and I really like his horns!

Hey guys thanks again, not going to play any more with him Gits, the model is pretty muddy when it comes to his face, the larger areas of the bigger models are all great but they struggle with anything crisp and smaller, so faces and hands etc fall down a bit on quality i've got to sort of make bits up as I paint. but I do like them all, really great designs and characterful models

now another big guy! a Cyclops this time, good fun painting the skin a dusty mountain weathered colour and seeing what I can do keeping the comic style on all of them, a few blended highlights with the final one being more of an edge highlight and quite bold seems to have done the trick on them.

I'm moving ahead pretty well with these guys and have another one done! this is a cave troll i'm imagining him from icy climes so have used lots of blues and greys again, I know I said it before but this slightly comic style is really fun for me to do as it speeds up my process heaps and on the larger models it just works so bloody well!

Hey guys i've been working on some Ogres for Whaley and i'm pretty much done with all the skin, I really enjoy the flesh painting and thought i's see how my normal skin method looked over different first washes, I went over a blue, flesh, red, yellow, green/brown, brown washes and worked it up from then! the final result isn't too different but I think it might add more subtle colours on more in depth models. so far I'm pretty pleased with them and think the models will pop once the extra details get filled in.

The guy at the top is the normal way with ogryn flesh but I prefer the darker agrax+ogryn wash it's almost greenish but works well, that's the skinny ogre with the horned helm.

A little bit more, I got the base browns on everything else which will act as the base for browns, golds and bone colours. you can start to see the image of them as a whole now and they all look pretty cool! couple of pics are blurry but you can still see the difference in the feel with the change of washes.
