Decided to throw up all my WIP just to keep a log of it all, I've always enjoyed looking back on my progress.



First time using Contrast paints, buddy of mine gave me some so I figured cultists were an appropriate test bed. The cultist on the left is regular paint/wash/drybrush, Contrast is on the right.



Wife loves Baby Yoda so a friend printed her one until the talking plush is delivered later in the year. The robe is all contrast, and used a little more on the face for definition.



I loved the Abaddon model, but I'm not a huge fan of special characters. So I chopped up a $60 model to turn him into a regular sorcerer. Pretty pleased with how it all turned out. I'm still mad about the back of Abaddon's head being molded to the body!



The sorcerer's attack dog. Gave him Abaddon's lightning claw as I wanted to use as many pieces of that kit as possible.

Nice kitbash work, and the paint jobs look nice as well. Hope to see more.

Those cultists look great as does Abaddon the Sorceror. Interested to see your take on modern Chaos after your 2nd Edition Iron Warriors awesomeness!

yeah abusing the new abbadon for Chaos lords / Sorcerers is the greatest thing imo you could do for your chaos warband.

Nice job with the kitbashing! it is frustrating just how often they seem to make it hard to change up things like heads, but you accomplished it well

realism is a lie

Both cultists look good. An army done using either technique would look great. Nice work with Abaddon, too.

I'm a fan of Abby conversions, less of a fan that he's the only option for properly embiggened terminator heroes
Sorcerer 'Badoom looks the business tho - good to know about his head, I'll have to cross that bridge when I do my own terminator lord mod.

Baby Yoda looks grand as well, surprised that the contrast played so well with the print lines!

Yeah I just wish it wasn't so expensive to do so! Are there a lot of Abaddon conversions floating around?

Hah, now I need to go back and convert a metal Abaddon for my Iron Warriors!

Thanks, I was pretty surprised that they were fairly indistinguishable to one another.

Yeah his head is dumb. I took a miniature coping saw and cut it out. At least I can still use one of his heads somewhere else...

Baby Yoda was a surprise with the contrast. Glad it worked out because it took longer to dry than to paint!


Got the cultists all colored up. Just have to finish all the metal areas and they'll be done!


Chaos lords cloak is finished.


Got the two lords primed and started on their bases and the boss cloak. Decided to give the sorcerer an icon and a familiar, the bloat toad from the Seraphon range. I'm thinking the toad should be orange with purple markings to match the color scheme of the Sorcerer unless y'all have a better idea.

Big fan of the varied looks for the cultists. The color combo on the cloak is stellar.

I definitely want to see you convert and paint a metal Abaddon for your Iron Warriors!

I wholeheartedly agree with youwashock on the cultists, their mixed colours add to the flavour of a rag-tag band

Nothing too exciting, they're just cultists. But they're finished cultists! Here they are hobnobbing with their traditionally painted friends.



I can pick out the contrast cultists fairly easily, but if I hadn't painted them I don't know that I'd even bat an eye differentiating them.



Contrast is interesting, there are certain colors that are better than others, but I'm pleased with it over all. Not sure I would have bought in if I hadn't been gifted the paints, but they are nice for a quick tabletop paintjob.

Now onto my terminator lords!

Thanks,

Interesting to see how well the contrast paints work on the cultists. Was there a big time saving as against your usual routine?

Great work on the rest - really nice consistent work

Ya know, yeah, it did speed thing up a bit. I got them done in a few nights, and they probably would have taken a whole week to finish off other wise.

The main thing is not having to find and open as many different paints. Contrast is one bottle to three for a regular color. Helps a bit since apparently I use ALL THE COLORS!!1!!!1!



Got some of the orange started on the termie lords, and almost done with the sorcerer's cloak.

Would have gotten more done but I have a gender reveal party and a birthday party to go to today. Cake!

Thanks,

Had some time to get a little work done today. They still need quite a few highlights, but overall they are getting closer.



I really like that toad familiar.



Can't wait to get him finished so I can cover everything in blood for the blood god.

They are looking fantastic. I missed the toad in the earlier pic. I love it. The juxtaposition of the huge armored warrior and his grumpy amphibian buddy is perfect.

Looking great MegaDave. Is that a tinge of green in the grey of their armour? I’m liking the extras in the bases l, fun little touches!

I love the subdued orange/grey scheme of the marines, will be really interesting to see that against the gaudier colours of the cultists. Everything's looking great so far, will keep my eyes peeled for more

Green I think was from the shade and lighting, I brought him back up to full gray. You actually gave me an idea for the future though!

Yeah grumpy toad is the brains of the operation.


Abanath the Iniquitous is complete!


Glamour shots! Work that cape!


Army shot, can't wait to get the Khorne Lord in there as well.


I think he fits in with his minions perfectly.


The real star of the thread!

Thank you, they turned out better than what I thought they were going to. Can't wait to get them on the table to see them die horribly in their first game!

It is! It's difficult not to go overboard with it and splatter everything in gore, but the basing element really gets the point across without overwhelming the model itself. Thanks!
