I really like the Obliterators nice use of the Chaos spawn! I look forward to seeing some paint on them.

Out of curiosity Kid_Kyoto what part of China are you actually in? I travel back and forth there every other month to Shenzen down by Hong Kong.

Some additions over this week...

I am LOVING the possessed sprue. Yeah the unit sucks but the box is worth it for aspiring champs, raptors, lords, whatever. There we have Sir Spikesalot, even his spikes have spikes!


And the last of my 20 CSM squad. Each has a different pair of CC weapons. I like Red Star with his hammer and sickle.


For the 82nd airborne this is my idea for a drop pod.



And finally an empire wizard as an Imperial Priest.

That Empire Wizard looks really cool. I also like Sir Spikesalot, but I bet can be a real prick... :S. Really cool lookin army though. This is always what I've liked about Chaos is the ability for two players to slap down 1500 of the same army, but they look completely different in every way. Great job.

Got some painting done this week, most importantly another test model for my glossy blood effect.



He still needs inking but I think the blood effect works.

On a whim I threw together some bitz to make a special character for the Fallen Wolves, Carnivore Dimitri Bitraiah. Often confused with the more famous Kharn the Betrayer he nonetheless works to set the standard for skulls, spikes and oversized weapons.


And here they are facing off against a Macross Konig Monster

Hadn't really thought about it...

I've still not made my 82nd Airborne list yet so I don't know how many I'll need.

Any ideas? Obviously it will need more skulls.

Actually they're both pretty serious. Since the odds of me playing a game in Red China are pretty slim I'm not too worried about competition but I am trying to raise my basic painting skills which have always been pretty basic indeed.

And the US army themed marines have been a dream of mine for a while.

One thing I have seen done on larger models/masks etc. for making good looking blood is taking your red substance of choice, putting some in your mouth, and spitting/blowing it out over the subject. Some of the theatre geeks (note the 're') I hung out with in college used that to make realistic splatter type markings. Basically just blow the stuff on and let it drip down from it's initial point of impact, and it mimiks the result of a close up gun shot/chainsaw wound really well.

If you don't want to put your paint in your gob (a good idea probably) a balloon was used for bigger things, so perhaps a little rubber dropper or something similar would do the trick. They also used something that looks like a whoopie cushion attached to a board, which was then hit with another board, but I don't know if that was a scratch build or what.

The main difference between this and the basic paint sprayer is the globby effect. Instead of a fine mist, you get bigger and more random drops of paint that will hit, smear a little, then drip down.

Now, note of warning: I have never painted a miniature that needed to be dripping blood, so I don't know how well it would lend itself to small things, but it makes for a GREAT effect on masks, costumes, and one large sized (12" xenomorph) actionfigure I saw it done on.

The scale of that chopper looks perfect for a drop pod, KK - is it just a generic toy you picked up somewhere?

And also that Macross Monster makes for an incredible Titan! Where did you pick it up?

Oh yeah, and Sir Spikesalot? He's sharp!

Indeed, do tell more about the monster.

I've found for my blood effects I use Tamiya Clear Gloss Red. You put 2-3 layers on the model after sealing it and it looks great. It has enough opacity to look realistic, and its glossy enough to look very sweet.

Perhaps an eye dropper would work? I've still got some 2nd edition bezerkers to check with.

The blood is in fact Tamiya gloss red. great stuff and it's not enamel like I thought so brushes stay clean.

The Monster is a macross toy from one of the video games. It actually transforms! Though not very well IMHO. I always loved the Macross designs, the Monster is my 3rd favorite after the veritech and Warhammer/excaliber/whatever it's called.



The chopper is made by New Ray toys I've seen them in the US so you might be able to find them.

LOL! Great minds think alike! I've never seen the red applied to a grey so it looked different.
I'm used to applying it to my red and black tyranids (or their claws).

Fauxbliterator is my new black. Both the word and the idea. Yeah, cables would make them even better. If you have a spare HB feed or two sitting around (or any thinker conduit that's not round), that would be good too.

As for blood, try mixing some gloss varnish in with Blood Red. Increases translucency and gloss at the same time.

Ah my poor, poor BLOOD!zerkers. Pushed aside by other sexier projects and forgotten.

Well no longer.

Because today we see the premier of their greatest weapon yet, the fearsome BLOOD!icator!

The BLOOD!icator is widely considered by the Inquistion to be the 16th most disturbing bodily-fluid themed war engine in the whole of the Chaos legions. It exceeds even the Flemdicator of the the Death Guard though it is exceeded by the Emperor's Children's Ejaculatrix.

Powered by BLOOD! harvested from the corpses of slain it processes them in the BLOOD!vats to fuel the BLOOD!cannon which fires bolts of pureist BLOOD!

Unlike other Khorne Bezerkers who sort of fancy a bit of BLOOD!, I can honestly say the BLOOD!zerkers really, really (x2) like it.

A lot.

You are certainly lying but I thank you anyway. I'm still deciding what to do for vindicator #2. Naturally it will have to be called the Skulldicator...

I'll give the ink a try. As I said it came out well enough but somehow that rear blood vat still lacks... something. Maybe a need to do half a victim being sucked in screaming.

the pipes and vat are from the pegasus chemical plant actually, not the CoD. Good kit, I find a lot of uses for it.

You got some great conversions here.

To answer a few questions that have been raised in the thread; Magic Sauce from the warstore is awesome. I bough the whole set and use it all the time. I would definitely recommend it for your models as it's would bring out some depth.

Also, for blood spatter, the easiest way to acheive it realistically is load up a brush with some watered down red and get it close to the part of the mini you want blood spattered and blow on the brush tip. It will spray droplets in a pretty realistic pattern.

At last some progress...

Yea though the Bloodicator is a truly fearsome war machine it makes up only half the firepower of the fearsome BLOOD!zerkers of Khorne.

Yea so they have called upon the eighth most fearsome body-part-related warmachine in all the armies of chaos (slightly more fearsome than Tzeentch's Hand of Death but slightly less so than the dreaded Throbbing Member of Slannesh)...

BEHOLD!

The SKULLdicator!

Dip an old toothbrush into what ever you use for your blood, and flick it onto the model via the brush.

Some new additions!

I'm tinkering with my army list. for a while I had 4 plasma gunners in my dev squad. I thought that plasma guns which pose a hazard to users and targets alike would be the most favored weapon of the BLOOD!zerkers but their poor performance in 2 games tells me otherwise. Then I realized the problem, the searing heat of the plasma bolts boils blood and incinerates skulls!

Surely this is what was making the BLOOD!zerkers fail!

So I thought. Lascannons were surely out for the same reason, missile launchers were an option but still not quite right. Then I realized that the BLOOD!zerkers needed heavy bolters. They're loud, heavy, ejaculate white hot death and leaving big messes of blood. Add a chainsaw bayonet and Bob's your uncle!

I also decided to cut some of my powerfist champs. A S5, I5 power weapon is more than enough for some squads, especially since they all have krak grenades and hit the rear armor of tanks.

Thus I present the BLOOD!evistators! and Baron Skullsplitter
