For a while I didn't think I was going to get this one finished - what with exam season looming - but managed to get there in the end!!

Spoiler:


The images seem to be a bit lower quality after uploading - but I guess they'll do!!

Great work this month everyone - see you in May!

I always try to keep this up to date with what projects I'm working on... but they just keep piling up

Some fantastic stuff here this month! Lots of great old school orks, in particular.

Here is my finished entry. Sorry about the terrible lighting, it has been dark and rainy here for days. Hopefully I'll get some better lit pictures some other time.

Three Morlocks for my Infinity Nomads. They generally throw down smoke grenades then charge suicidally through the clouds to hit people with their swords.

As usual I can't actually finish to a deadline, so I've left out the HB sponsons. My pictures are still crap, enjoy.

And what's more primal than the relationship between predator and prey anyway?

HE IS BETTER" But...in your heart, you love the T-rex, who shouldn't have lost to no stupid Spinosaurus. So you hate the movie. And refuse to love the Spinosaurus because it is a hamfisted attempt at taking what you loved, making it TREX +++ and trying to sell you it.

Going to call it done. I am going to eventually swap that severed head with a different one... but still waiting for the bit to come in the mail, so the stock one will have to do for now...

You can try adding a second lamp and have them shine on your model at 45 degrees from each side. It will help hide the stark shadows.

Pretty impressive you where able to get that done so quickly EmberlordofFire8

PossumCraft the Red looks a lot better than the blue did, brave to change half way through but a good swap with the end result

Chris56 - you have some really nice colour transitions on your Carnosaur, great work.

You always have very interesting models keezus, your collection must be pretty spectacular by now.

Nice work on the flying Beastman thing El-Torrminator, its come out very well.

Since its midnight now I'm putting my paint brush down, not quite finished but mostly done, I'll take some proper pics in the morning during the amnesty.

Heres a terrible pic using flash in the mean time.

Did not have time ti finish the base which was going to by painted as marble tiles. nether the less might as well still enter.
I went from liking the paint job to hating it again and again throughout the painting of it, i like it now but definitely want to try something different for the next bronze thing i do.

Well done everyone that finished.

Nice looking Alien Gundor2

methebest, that bronze/metal bull looks really good, the Verdigris works very well, I just got a pot of the GW stuff so looking for excuses to use it.

As Promised here are my final Pics

About 90% finished but missing the last few touches to make it really stand out, also a base...... I order one to arrive on the 12th of April but its still not come yet and I don't have any spare chariot bases in my bits box :(

That's just the sculpt they have, I think they're supposed too be snarling.

OMG this is amazing. I love everything - the models, the colors - perfect. I am stealing the draft horse Seraphon idea too. Great work.

Thanks a lot Groo, your more than welcome to steal whatever ideas you like, I'm happy that someone has found inspiration for one of my models, one of the main reasons I do this. Have fun with your own conversion.
