EDIT - This blog stated off as PDH - Odds and Ends - Random 40k and Fantasy Models but seems to have turned into a Inq28 blog from page 2/3 onwards. So I have renamed it.

Hi Guys,

Well I started painting my Necromunda Scaly with speargun last weekend and I felt I was rushing him. Which is never a good thing, so I put him down. A few days later I was in the mood to paint again....but something different. Decided to paint the Snikrot model my girlfriend got me for Valentine's day (2009 ) So I thought I'd create a new thread for random models I've painted/I'm painting. I hope you like it...


Snakebite Nob WIP




edit finished June 14

Well I had to convert him so I went with my favourite Ork Clan... Snakebites. I'm not sure about the tau sept ochre plates? What do you guys think? I will add some damage if I don't change the colour.

A few other models I've painted over the last couple of years. I'll put some more up in a few days.



My favourite FW model. The skulls came out so much better than expected. I'm also pleased with the Daemon Axe.



The new Minotaurs blew me away when I saw them. I painted this one up to test out a metal technique. I had to watch a load of Arnie films while painting this beast up.



Nurlge Marauder Sorcerer - He leads my Nurlge cultists (count as marauders). Now I'm stuck in the past where the Warhammer World is at the centre of the Eye of Terror or is it the Maelstrom. So a chainsword is a perfectly reasonable weapon for a chaos warrior....if you cannot move past Slaves to Darkness and The Lost and The Damned Damn you GW

Does anyone have any hints or suggestions as to what size pictures should be to look good in thread? (I've just answered my own question......... I realised I had Opera zoomed in to 160% )

I like the Tausept on the Ork's plates, but bit of damage and chipping would probably make them stand out more.

Also, although you answered your own question on pic size, it depends on the pic itself. I usually preview every pic I post just to be sure it's an appropriate size.

Thanks for commenting chaps. So it looks ok, reassuring... I'll probably do some appropriately contrasting coloured dags on the shoulder plates to break them up a bit. 2nd ed Ork Codex came in handy after all those years. Well painting will have to wait l I had better go to work.....wish I could stay home and paint

I forgot to post this pic with the Sorcerer... I think he makes more sense with it

I remember when I used to have to go to work. Now I'm on maternity leave and I have lots of time to paint 'cause my son is such an easy baby. Give him a bottle, blanket and prop him up next to me and he's good to go giving me a few 3-4 hr chunks of painting time.

I'm a fan of Orks and Minotuars to begin but I definitely like the others. You're a good painter. The Nurgle Cultists' weapons look like the weapons from the Empire Flagallents (sp?). Are they?

Bunnygurl - Ouch...rubbing not going to work in my face though admittedly you had to go through labour pains for it and I wouldn't want that ever You're lucky your son likes to sit and watch his mummy paint. I work with mothers and children on a daily basis so enjoy it while it lasts...he will learn how to run soon

Thanks - The cultists are Empire Flagellants with a few zombie heads thrown in. The front rank are old chaos champions, scavvy boss and forge word plague priests. Painted in nurgle colours with rusty weapons.

Are you painting anything nice at the moment? Are you going to share some nice pictures with us?

Sorry. Didn't mean to do any rubbing. I'm just having so much fun that I like to share. He was a 10lb 7oz baby so he did indeed hurt.

I like them. They look diseased and angry.

I'm working on finishing the Battle for Skull Pass box set plus a million other projects. Not much of a converter though so nothing totally unique.

I could definitely post some pics of some stuff that I've done/am doing if you'd like me to (though I'd have to figure out how to first). I'd just hate to overtake your thread of goodies.

Happy painting!

Bunnygurl - Ouch. Goblins are always ace. Ah the million projects problem .Taking pictures of models has been the hardest part of joining this web community (but very rewarding). Cool mini or not has some good articles on taking pictures. IRfanview is good for editing pictures and free. The most helpful though is the dakka FAQ http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/205120.page. As for over taking the thread you could start your own. Or just put some pics in your dakka gallery and tell me to go look Happy painting to you too.

Commander Cain - Cheers, did you mean Zhufor? (if you did I highly recommend him the detail on him is just jaw dropping, a joy to paint) I love painting but I need a break of the same old. The main reason I try and built a model then paint it now, rather than building a whole gang then painting the whole gang. I would go Cuckoo and they would never get done (like my 40k armies)

Cheers

Hey Jackanory you asked what it is....

This is my Death Guard Daemonically Possessed Vindicator. It never hits anything and is usually blown up by turn three (or has no weapon).

I modelled it so all the hatches are welded shut. The daemon inside is not a happy mitsimotosis bunny and trying to bash its way out. As for the paint job i was really happy with it in 2008 but the rust isn't great.

Now beer festivals are good fun....the hangover at midnight not so much... The urge to go online and check out comments on your Necromunda blog unstoppable....the disappointment well disappointing.....not knowing if you can get mig pigment out of your favourite jeans still niggling.

Anyway onto the point of this post... I think this model is the best I've ever painted and want to share it with you guys.

My head hurts and my mouth tastes like .....but at least the cause made me friendly last night

Commander Cain - Thanks. When I completed the vindicator a couple of years ago I was so pleased with the rust (I used the guide from the ogre kingdoms book). Looking at it now there is so much I would do differently because I've learnt quite a lot in the last few years. The main thing I would change is doing the rust first then mask it and then paint the off creamy colour on top, so the layers look like they are in the right order. So hopefully this will look so much better if I get round to painting it....



Jackanory - Cheers dude. The face came out so well. I think the main reason for that is I used a white undercoat, for the first time in years. It really changes the tone of the paints on top.

Beer festivals are dangerous..... (Note to self do not pick beers because they have interesting labels and if a beer is above 6% don't order it because you wont like it.)

Hey Bunnygurl - Hmmmm that might be a good move. As I'd really love a whole white space marine force I pulled out all the stops on this one model, a whole army its never going to happen. I painted this guy (one of my favourite models ever) over about a month as a challenge to paint nice white armour and use a white undercoat. The check pattern on the knee was fun and tough but I really enjoyed it because I was trying to improve myself. It took a while but the end result The tactical symbol on the back pack was much much harder to do than the checks, I just couldn't get the shape quite right.

A word of advice for painting white, to anyone who wants it....throw away your pot of skull white and order Vallejo Model Colour White. The dropper means your white paint does not get contaminated and so stays white.

Hey Peter, managed to miss this thread, nice stuff.

Ork looks great, go with chipping and damage on the plates, colour is fine

Didn't think much of the minotaurs from looking at the kits but may have changed my mind now

Nurgle sorceror is awesome. Why would anyone want to move past StD and TLaTD? stuff was more interesting and fun then

Tear Bringer has a fantastic paint job man, excellent work there. This is the kind of work that reminds us that marines can be cool too

Keep it up.

Cheers guys

Monkeytroll - Cheers - Yeah the nob is now glaring at me with a look of "you've decided on the colour now paint me or I'll ead butt you!".

The Minotaurs are pretty nice... they just scream Arnie.

MADLarkin - No he is the only one.....though I've base coated another (The Gamesday 2005 Marine). I cannot really claim credit for the paint scheme....I decided to paint the yellow like spaces wolves myself. But the original scheme that I was inspired by was done by Desert Eagle on his Desert Eagle's chapter over at Bolter and Chainsword http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/index.php?showtopic=109012 Start on the first page and work your way through its worth the wait to page 5 for the first completed marine. Possibly the best space marines I've ever seen.

SlaveToDorkness - Thank you very much. The chapter name came about by contemplating painting the Space Hulk Terminators in the colour scheme. So I needed something that would work with the blood drop symbol. Also the best named chapter ever in my opinion are the Grief Bringers. 1+1=Tear Bringers

Well I've not checked in here for a while.

The Nob....is still a WIP, I've base coated all the ochre. I'm sure I've made my poor excuses elsewhere.

I broke when I saw Paz's The Deeper Well http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/328364.page. I wanted a Sybarite that looks that cool! This will not be turning into an army... I'm only planning on painting up five or so warriors and about the same number of wyches. I will also be getting an Archon for Christmas from Abi's parents.

So while I wait for the plastic glue to dry, on my attempt at a shard carbine, I thought I'd bung these guys up here for you to see. They still need green stuff here and there but you get the general idea.



I'll be taking inspiration for my Dark Eldar colour scheme from this orchid, before all the flowers fall off. IRL the white is more of a Vallejo Rotting Flesh colour. On the models I'll be going for a somewhat darker purple with rotting flesh edge highlights. We'll see how it works. As for naming...Kabal of the Decaying Orchid? Its the best I've got but its not quite there.



Weety - Thanks for the comment about the Tear Bringer. Every time I look at the model I'm chuffed.

Hahaaaa, you totally cracked! I'm resisting the new DE pretty hard myself

Your basing is something special there, and I'm liking the addition of the chain to the big gun - I always think some of the bigger GW weapons can look ridiculously heavy for people (particularly eldar!) to be carrying unsupported...
It's already been said, but I absolutely love the weathering on your tear drinker.

but shouldn't you be painting scavvy dogs right now?

I really like your tear bringers chapter marine, white is such a hard colour to make look right and you pulled it of superbly. On the subject of your kabal, i really like the idea of using the orchid as inspiration for the colours. Name wise how about Kabal of the Poisoned Orchid? maybe a bit long winded. Keep it up

Guy on the left has my take on a shard carbine. Shortened the barrel, added the vane thing underneath, snipped off the fourth/smallest nubbin on top of the barrel, snipped off the end of the barrel and added some green stuff supports along the barrel....all to try and alter it enough that it doesn't look too much like the rifle it started out as. Still needs a bit of tidying up and filing. The model holding it also needs glueing together. So plenty of time for suggestions on how to improve the carbine, please.



Scarper - Thanks. Yeah the heavy weapon just screamed out for a strap. Dude shush about the dogs...they are in a closed drawer , I'm sure they will get out soon enough and attack my modelling table. I Know I know one project at a time etc but the Dark Eldar are so very pretty besides I totally cracked

Calibanite Lion - Thanks, he was fun to paint and took ages. My first thought was Poisoned Orchid but for some reason I shyed away from it. I'll put it back on the drawing board because it does sound better.

monkeytroll - Cheers. Good luck with not getting any Dark Eldar. They are gorgeous models and such a pleasure to put together.

sum1thtdiesalot- Thanking You.

Like what you've done with the carbine there, I think it's enough with the side supports in place, looks different enough from the rifle to justify it.

Have any of you filled the gaps on the warriors shoulder pads? For some reason I am having great difficulty with them and I was after some pointers. Thanks in advance

I had that prblem with the warriors hanging off the raider. I think i fixed a couple of them by filing the two chest pieces down and then used super glue not plastic glue and held the model really reallly tight for like an hour while the glue dried. You could probably just fill with green stuff though
