Got a little more work done on test can. Pipe got painted gray, and I put two heavy washes of agrax earthshade all over.


The wash pooled/streaked quite a bit, but it's ok because there is a lot going on top that will cover it all up. Going to bring the color back up with a few drybrushes, then there will be some chipping and grimy streaky-leaky stuff added.

Gobert, I thought about hazard stripes are but trying to do that on round objects terrifies me! I think I'm going to leave them off for now, but they'll definitely get added to any platformer areas added to the pieces going forward.

Thanks,

MegaDave

Nice work. The washes over the primer have created a very fun industrial yellow that fits the theme perfectly. Scratch-built terrain is so fun to look at, the way that it elevates the piece so far beyond its component parts. Looking forward for the "grimy streaky-leaky stuff" because that is my favorite part of all terrain features.

My painting log is full of snakes

Looking nice and dirty now, Agrax Earthshade really is an amazing paint! Fair shout on the Stripes, i did wonder if your precision riveting might have made it easier to do on the horizontal bands. I look forward to a return to stripes with the platforms though!

Oh yeah, I'm not done with the hazards. Just need something a little more rectangular.

Tonight I got everything drybrushed up to their starting colors and a highlight, then chipped it all to hell.

I used the basing paint to create lumpy areas that will end up as rust piles. I thought it was a good way to cover up some areas I wasn't completely happy with. Can't do anything else with it until it dries, so have a good one!

Thanks,

3D rust is great. Oxidization is beautiful. Looking great, in a broken-down way.

Thanks! I'm liking it even more with the orange on it. Did a great job of covering up some gaps.

Glad you like it, never know until you try I guess!

Got the rust and oil streaks done tonight, as well as finishing the rust.

Used vallejo acylic model washes for the streaks and oil stains. They're pretty neat, a little more pigment that the gw shades.


I didn't like this gap, so I decided to cover it with some plant life.


It covered it alright, but fun fact, that vallejo acylic wash takes forever to dry and the flock started getting stuck in it! I was able to brush most of it off, but be warned if you ever use it.

Letting all that dry and hopefully should have all the final details finished tomorrow. I'll be making the plant life a little more irregular as well, can't have it looking like a pipe cleaner!

Thanks,

MegaDave

Ooh, great solution with the seam there. I've never tried modeling fungus before! Do you think it would take a wash well?

Thanks, I thought it was a decent solution. I've never washed it before, but it would probably soak it up and stain it, so for color variation it'd probably work. I'll have to do some test fungus sometime!

Finished the old can today, clearcoated and everything.

Pretty happy it with how it turned out, being a soup can and all.

Bulked out the greenery a bit as well.

Now that I have a color scheme and know the rivets won't fall off, I just have to figure out exactly what I want to do with the rest of those cans!

Thanks,

MegaDave

Looks good MegaDave! I particularly like the lumpy rust and dripping grime. One thing if I may, is that a light pencil mark might be better to mark out the positions of the rivets. The pen marks seem to be showing through. Still looks great though

Well finally had some free time and bought a couple of kits, so here I am!


I had 10 plaguebearers that needed rebased so I figured I'd get 20 more and make the full unit. Still a lot of painting to be done, but they are on their way.


Also started working on a nurgle soul grinder, I had a ton of bits left over from making Rotigus and I don't believe in wasting bits! I think after this build I will have actually used every bit from the GUO kit, which makes me happy.


Lots of pinning on this model, it's all bailing wire and duct tape at this point!

Thanks,

Hey, welcome back! Nice update. I really like the different skin tones on the plaguebearers. Good palette choice there. Can't wait to see the soulgrinder in action!

Good to see you’re still around, all your nurgle guys must be keeping papa happy and away!

As others have said the diversity of the plague bearers is cool, the blue-grey chaps look like they might’ve started off as tau.

The soulgrinder will surely please papa too, is that an armature ready for sculpting an arm I see?

Haven't had much time due to work, school and family stuff, but I did get the soul grinder greenstuffed and primed.


I used a ton of GS for his torso and arm!


He looks much more natural being one solid color. Hopefully I'll have some time soon to get some paint on him.

Thanks,

Good to see you back again MegaDave. Great sculpting, with the primer he looks pretty homogeneous. Good luck getting some time to paint him up

Well things have slowed down just a touch at work so I had a few days to actually work on this guy, I'm pretty happy with how he turned out.















20 plaguebearers to paint and my pile will be finished again!

Good to see you’ve managed to you’ve managed to get the Soul Grinder done. Your restraint in getting through your pile never ceases to amaze me MegaDave. Good luck getting some time to go through the plague bearers. Hopefully we get a group picture to celebrate the completed pile. Then you should reward yourself with a new pile!

Fantastic job, great gribbly sculpting. It's cool to see both the phosphorescent green and bloody red on the same model, and the horn/ivory is really natural looking!

He is beautiful, in the most disgusting and awesome way. Really love the way all the colours work together; looking him over is a bit like reading a Where's Wally book. The verdigris and luminescent slime are great additions.

So close! Wonder what will be added to the pile next

Appreciate it, I was worried about using so much greenstuff originally.

Thank you!

Well I managed to finished the plaguebearers and the spoilpox scrivener.

There's some serious awesome on display in that group picture. The centerpiece models are fabulous. Now, onto that next bit about Warhammer Quest. In what sounds to be near-pristine condition. That is going to be something to see!

Too kind, as always. But look below! Original models, undefiled for quite some time!

The box is a little banged up on the edges but still good, the books aren't in the greatest of condition but I can read them!


Man, who would have thought I'd be able to clip these off the sprue so many years after production.
