I may have stayed up slightly too late in order to finish off Sebastien Verkers, however I felt the need to post, so post I shall.

He's yet to be reassembled, as I ripped him off of his base to make him a fancy new one, which is here:

The metal was just the standard GW dark metal (I forget the name) with black, blue and brown washes, followed by a slight sponging of the original metal. Same with the copper, but without the blue was. The blood is a 1:1:1 mix of blood red, red gore, and Baal red, watered down slightly then painted on (for the puddle) All flicked on (For the blood splatters).

Then we have a few shots of the main model.




So there we have it. I'll probably post some photos of him tomorrow when I've assembled him, and using a backing screen for better photos.
As always, comments, criticism and advice are more than welcome, and hopefully tomorrow ill have some new goodies to show you, assuming my order has arrived at the shop.

A couple of things today. Firstly, my new models arrived! (yay!) but I hadn't realised that the crusaders were finecast, and I've discovered that it has an ungodly number of unneccesary vents and flash, and is basically a pain to work with. (Boo!)

Secondly, having made a couple of final touches to him, and having now glued him to his base, Sebastien Verkers is now finished! (yay! (again))
So, without further ado, here he is:




I tried my hand at blending for the first time on the turquoise glowy bit on the back of his armour, and I like to think it came out okay for a first attempt.



So there you have it. I find it amusing to think that until a few days ago, he had been the next image for about 5 years.


Anyway, its 3:00am, so I should really go to sleep now, so I won't bore you any more with my ramblings, but as always comments and criticism are appreciated, especially regarding the rust and verdigris, and the attempted blending on his back.
So yeah, hopefully I'll have some new models to show you fairly soon, even if its just the crusaders once I've managed to remove all that infernal flash.

thanks, Nathan.

EDIT: I just realised that the images on this page are blurring up slightly due to them being resized, so you'll have to click through to the gallery to see them looking normal. They're much clearer and sharper (I promise).

I'm back! A few things to talk about, the first of which being my fiendish character design for my daemonhost, Craenuthryzz the Puppetmaster.
Basically, he's being represented by two different models, one for when he's disguised as a normal sanctioned psyker, and one when he gets in a fight and goes all demonic and floaty, to that end, he also has two different bases, and I thought I'd be a bit clever here, so they're the same components for each base, but with the daemonhost base being a bit melted and warped upwards, to represent the damage done by his transformation:


I his psyker form, he'll be represented by one of Hector Rex's acolytes, and by a standard daemonhost model when he starts killing stuff.


So yeah, there isn't anything else I can do with him/them till the weather clears up enough to spray-paint them, so on to the rest of the models...
First we have Clemens Ignis, a flamey acolyte.

Then Septimus Crysostom, the actual sanctioned psyker, he's one of the spray-painted models that I managed to leave in Bedford, and who arrived yesterday (along with Hector Rex, who I'll be using as the inquisitor, and Craenuthryzz's psyker form), and the only model I have that's primed at the moment, so he'll be the next one finished, hopefully by the end of the week.

And finally the twin crusaders, who will have rules reflecting their twininess, Marcus and Lucius Verus.


Honestly, after this I won't be too upset if I never see a finecast crusader again, these two have so many vents and bubbles and difficult to reach mould lines (which wouldn't be there if it was metal) that they've taken longer to make than all of the other models combined so far.

So yeah, I'll be putting some more paint down onto Septimus tomorrow, and I still have two stormtroopers to assemble, as well as the big man himself, and hopefully ill have some more WIP shots by tomorrow evening (probably 2am Sunday to be honest, as I'm going out tomorrow evening)

I managed to get some painting done and wrote the profiles for my warband at wargames society today (it's deliciously corrupt), and finished the majority of the large areas of the psyker, such as his robes and skin, and got the base layers down for everything else, though the are going to be some finishing touches to add at the end.



So yeah, as always any comments or criticism regarding anything are welcome, and hopefully I'll have him finished by Thursday next week (I have lectures starting at 9:00 from Monday, but Wednesday afternoon off).

I've been working Septimus a fair bit recently, and made some good progress. He's close to being done in most respects (apart from the pouch), but I got slightly annoyed at how good one of my freinds' freehanding was and, having never done it before, resolved to try and do a fancy pattern on Septimus' cloak.

It's going to be two straight bands of yellow, with a further band weaving in and out of it. It's fairly close to being finished, but I'm not going to get it done tonight, and I'm not here over the weekend so it'll be a while till it is done.



I went for primary colours for the electronics on his chest, and I'm currently thinking of putting some aging wrinkles on his head to make him a bit older.



I also picked up one of these recently (read: yesterday)

And am planning on lending him to the GM as an NPC boss for the inquisitor campaign, the only problem being that his torso seems to be slightly miscast, with one of the shoulder spikes missing, loads of metal where it shouldn't be, and generally dodgy quality, so I've yet to decide whether to ask for a replacement or to just man up and fix them (I'm quite green-stuff averse)

So there you have it. I may be able to get a photo of Septimus' cloak as it currently is, as I've managed to get a fair bit further than these photos show, but I may fall asleep before then, so it depends.

Comments and criticism are welcome as always, as I'm always trying to improve, and thanks for reading.

Hello, not posted recently due to managing to leave my camera at my parents' house, but I'm back home now and have managed to get a couple of photos, and managed to get a small amount of painting done (not too much due to a ridiculous amount of work) so here we go:

The daemonhost is progressing quite nicely, I'm a bit worried that he seems too dark at the moment (the photo makes him much darker than he actually is, but he's still very dark) and seeing as he's Tzeentchian I'd prefer that he be bright colours all over, so I may put some brighter layers onto the purple, and the turquoise bits will end up quite pale. (Also I'm having a bit of difficulty with my camera at the moment as my brother fiddled with the settings and I can't work out what he did)


Student Nationals were held at Sheffield this year, and despite me having to teach people how to play Cyclades for 10 hours, I did manage to get to one of the WarGames stalls, where they were selling a fair amount of stuff second hand including a large portion of an Epic 40,000 Eldar army, which I bought and will be painting soon hopefully.

Finally the eldest son of a family that used to live near collects Tomb Kings, and it's his birthday on Sunday, so I'm painting up a Prince Apophas for him as a birthday present. I'm going to be painting it over the next three days and will be posting fairly regular updates of the entire process. This is where he stands at the moment:


So yeah, I'll be painting him fairly quickly but hopefully to a decent standard, and as always comments and criticism are welcome.

Nathan.

So I managed to get a fair amount of work done on Prince Apophas. I finished the scarabs that make up his bottom half (mostly anyway, I'm going to put a slight purple wash on them at the end, and there may have to be repairs during painting), and I've almost finished base coating everything else.


As you can see, there are a lot of scarabs.



Any ideas or tips for painting him would be welcome, as are comments and criticism, as I'm always looking to improve
Tomorrow I'll be hopefully finishing him off, though it may entail a late night for me tomorrow.

Nathan.

Well I managed to go to the Forge World open day today, and came away with a box full of goodies, the largest and coolest of which being this:

This was my birthday present from my grandparents/uncle
I also got Solomon Lok and Retinue, Lord Zhufor in Terminator armour, the event only Warrior Priest, and some frogs, because frogs are awesome.

I'm going to try and get the finished photos of Prince Apophas posted tomorrow, probably during MEC102 as the lectures are unintelligible.

So yeah, if anyone has any advice or comments and criticism for some of the other models on here then it'd be greatly appreciated.

God, I'm awful at keeping this thing updated (I'm going to blame exams)

So, I got thoroughly trounced after retrieving my Ork Army, and decided I needed some heavy armour to give it some protection, however I've not got much money, and don't like wheels, so I decided to scratch-build a squiggoth! A Gargantuan one. (though I may make an itty bitty mini one to use in smaller battles to get a feel for the concept)


Here are the bits I've made so far, a tusk, an nose horn, an eye, and the front jaw.


One of the (eventually) two tusks.


And the right eye. The left eye is probably going to end up as some Gaze of Mork/Gork style energy weapon, so I thought I'd put some cameras in this one.

That's all I can think of at the moment. If you've got any advice regarding scratchbuilding big orky stuff I'd definitely appreciate it,

Hola.

At the moment, whilst I intended to spend the summer painting my orks and making a Mekanikal Squiggoth, I've ended up painting odds and ends, and I've recently started painting the CSM part of Dark Vengeance, in order to use them as a loaner army for Wargames Society at uni, and as a component of a future Chaotic Allies army (though this may end up as purely CSM now, because I'm having fun with them at the moment, and as much as they're maoned about, I really like the dinobots)

Anyway, I've been doing some painting (finally!) and managed to get a decent start on my 550 pts of Chaos (500 if I only go for mastery level one on the Sorceror)

Here are some rather rubbish photos (they were taken with an Ipad camera, because I can't find the charger for my DSLR)







I've not got much left to do with the sorceror. I need to apply some final grey highlights to horns/claws and then varnish them, and possibly apply some verdigris, but other than that he's done.

I'm not too fond of how the bone on his skull has gone, and I'm not 100% sure about the colour scheme yet, but other than that I'm happy.

Here's the hellbrute:


The Hellbrute is taking a while. Getting Runefang Steel to cover properly over all of the trim on a Hellbrute takes a fair amount of time, even with the blue going on in only one coat.

Here are the Chosen, which are taking not as long as the hellbrute individually, but even so, painting all the trim Runefang Steel is taking about 30-45 minutes per model.


And finally a frog. because frogs.



So yeah, that's what I'm painting at the moment. Advice or criticism would be lovely, though prodding me to get some work done is also welcome.

Pictures Ho!

Did some painting and managed to finsh the base for my Inquisitorial Sorceror, so he'll go first:





I'm particularly fond of the free-hand pattern on the bottom of his cloak.


Next up we have the finished Chaos Sorceror. I haven't painted on a chapter symbol, as I havent decided on one 100% yet, though as I've decided to call them "The Hollow Crown" I'm thinking of making it a dark coloured crown, possibly gunmetal or black.





And finally the partner of the Nurgle frog I posted a while back, a bog standard Arcane Frog on a lava base:







So there you go. I've also done some work on the Hellbrute, which is going a lot quicker now that I've realised that Leadbelcher isn't much darker than Runefang Steel, whilst being much better at coverage, so I can actually paint the steel trim reasonably quickly.

The squiggoth is going fairly well, I've started putting details on the head, and began to think out how it'll connect to the main body. At the moment it's gonna be four pistons and a load of wires forming a neck type arrangement. Also started working on a turret to either go on the squiggoth or to plop on top of a M2 Abrams model I have that I'm throwing plasticard at to turn into either a battlewagon or a superfortress.

So yeah. I'm probably gonna do some work on my Inquisitorial Retinue over the next few days, as painting Marines is getting a bit boring.

Helloooooooooooo.....

Right, I finished a grand total of nothing, as I've been flitting between stuff like a squirrel with ADHD recently. I have however managed to get a very good amount of progress on my Inquisitorial Purifier (using the Crusader model) which you can see here:







I've all but finished the white (though I may need to do some touch ups), and the red is nearly done, so I've just got the sword and the numerous details and wires and tubes to do now, which shouldn't take too long, so hopefully he'll be finished fairly soon (sans base)

I've also done some work on my daemonhost's unveiled form:





Not really much more to do with him, I'm probably going to do a bit on the metal on his head, and I need to do the purity seals and scrolls, but apart from those the only thing to do is the tiny little glass vials at his waist, which I'm doing based on an old Huron Blackheart WD tutorial from back when CSM was last released in 2007 (I think it was then anyway)

We then come to his concealed form, which hasn't had any work done to him recently, but also doesn't have any photos of him online, so I thought I'd put some up:





And finally we have the (almost) finished Nurgle Frog from earlier. Hs completely painted, and the base is almost done, all that's left is to scrape a bit of excess varnish off, and re-drill the hole for him to be pinned down with.







So there you have it. I've done a fair bit on the meka squiggoth (pictures soon I promise), and have started doing the detailing on the head, and assembling the neck mechanism (four pistons with wires down the centre), and worked on turning an old paint pot into a rotating shoota turret (all I need is a 33mm drill bit )

As always comments and criticism are welcome, as otherwise I have no way of improving, and like most people I enjoy getting better

See ya next time,

Nathan.

I decided to do some orks, having not touched the two grots that come with the FW Mekboss Buzzgob, so I painted those, and started working on repainting my Nobz, as I've finally gotten to the point where I'm too ashamed to put them on the table due to them being so awfully painted. I think I might try and go through all of my old orks and update them to my new paint scheme, as it's very easy to get a good looking effect, and would make me much more likely to put them on the table. (the main issue is getting Skarsnik Green (new goblin green) to cover properly, but both Knarloc green and Ogryn Camo cover perfectly well with a single coat)

Anyway! (again) on to photos.

First up is the first (duh) of two grots, who I'm gonna be using as objective markers until I finish/start Mekboss Buzzgob:
He has a degree in orkonomics.




And on to his partner in crime:







The beaky helmet on the base is painted to match a freind of mine's marine chapter (he's the only person I know whose paint scheme I could remember at the time). I'm very very happy with how these came out. the slightly more yellow final highlight on the skin really makes the green pop in real life (it's a bit darker in the photos)

Here are the Nobz so far:

I've done the skin, main shirt, and blue armour for all of them, and I'm currently partway through doing the bright brown leather for them, after which I'll move onto the metals.

and finally the heads for some Lootas, which have been sat on sprues unpainted for the past three years, and which I only just started:


So yeah, comments and criticism are always welcome, especially with such a new paint scheme, and hopefully now that I've set up a paint station in the corner of my room I'll have a steady flow of models over the next few weeks.

I didn't have a lab today, so I spent the afternoon doing some work on my Nobz. I've managed to get them all basecoated (apart from brass on three of them) and I'll be able to move onto washes and layers after about a half hour's work.

here are some quick photos:











I think I might go through the entirety of my old army and repaint them with this new paint scheme (starting with the badly painted ones, like the warboss or the stormboyz), as I really really like the way that the final highlight makes the green pop (see my previous post ), and I've always liked brightly coloured ork armies. I will need to work out a new basing style though...

As always, comments and criticism are welcome, and hopefully I'll have some more progress to show you by wednesday.

Well I went to my FLGS on Saturday intending on buying a few Deffkoptas to bring my army up to 1000pts, and ended up with a Dakkajet. So that's a thing.

I've been hurriedly assembling it whilst hiding from other students during the current game of assassins, and decided that since it's the only model in my army with a large base, that I would make a fancy barricade to put on it as decoration, which is now fully assembled, but is gonna have a bit of garbage strewn about the base before being sprayed.



And the barricade...





So yeah. I'm not attaching the cockpit until it's painted, as it has fiddly bits, bit other than that the model is done.

Advice is always welcome, and hopefully I'll have some more done soon.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Finished all of the little mould and glue lines, so I've just sprayed the Dakkajet, and finished gluing all the rubbish to the base. I still need to glue a metric ton of sand to the base, but once I've done that I'll be able to spray it and start painting.



Here's a rough and ready photo, as I can't be bothered to do much more as I'm slightly high off primer fumes, tired, and ill, so I think I'll just lay here and play Pokemon Y for a bit.

Helloooooooo...

I haven't updated in a while. I had quite a lot of exams. I have survived those exams though, and have rewarded myself by buying myself an entire new army, designed from the start to be horrifically lethal, as opposed to "I like that model, but it's useless. Meh, I'll use it anyway" *proceeds to lose every game ever*.

So yeah, I have some models now.



Here we have 2000pts worth of army, which I'm forcing myself to actually finish by actually having a deadline by which they need to be finished. (Early April) I technically have another deadline for assembly, which is to get them ready for playing with on Saturday. I might have to proxy a few.

I'm also planning on getting a Crypt Ghoul to go with the Tzeentch Sorceror, which will both be converted slightly and used as heralds (the ghoul will probably get a beak and one of the spare banners/staffs from the horrors, the sorceror will be used as is and plopped on a disc) I'm also hoping t get hold of one of the heralds from the flaming chariot kit, and still need to work out what to do for the final herald.

So yeah. I have jus over a day to get 50 Horrors, 12 Flamers, 9 Screamers, Fateweaver, a Daemon Prince and a few heralds made up.

Wish me luck.

Not done any work on the daemons for a while, mainly due to having a crapton of work for university and not wanting to get them all out. I have however done some work on my inquisitorial retinue, in the form of finishing off my warrior priest.

I'm entered into the student nationals in april, and there's a separate painting competition with a few categories, so I'm hoping to enter the completed retinue as an entry in Sci-Fi Squad, as such I'm going slightly over the top with regards to detail.

Anyhoo, here's the warrior priest.







I may have painted his toenails on...


I also gave him a tattoo of the inquisitorial I on the dome of his skull, which I'm not sure whether I'm happy with.


And finally his ugly mug.


I've had the realisation that I don't take particularly amazing photos, which isn't helped by the fact that if they're displayed in their normal state by Dakka they're out of focus, so you need to click through and zoom slightly to get rid of the blur, annoyingly.

Anyway, there he is, and if anyone has any hints or tips as to how I can improve they'd be greatly appreciated.

Coming soon: My converted/Kitbashed Herald of Tzeentch, the cloaked form of my Daemonhost, and a change to which inquisitor model I'll be using.

Finally got some photos of the second Herald I made a couple of weeks ago. It's a conversion/kitbash made from a WFB Cairn Wraith, a spare flamer arm, and a not so spare beaked horror head.

The head was made by cutting the horror's head in half, then shaving bits off so that it looked like a bird's beak, then gluing a weird tendril thing from the horrors box into the gap as a sort of tongue, before gluing the entire thing under the hood.







Planning on spraying him and painting him up as soon as I've thought of a way to make him a disc.

I've also thought of what I'm going to use for the third herald:



This guy! He's possibly my favourite model, so it'll be fun to finally have an actual use for him, and he'll be used as the leader guy that has the Grimoir of true names..

So yeah, going to do some more assembly/painting later today and hould hopefully have some more pictures soon

I did more painting! I went to the National Student Roleplaying and Wargaming Championships over the weekend (and got my ass handed to me due to a couple of stupid mistakes and some absolutely horrific lists) but during my second game I got a third of my army wiped off the board in my opponent's first shooting phase, meaning my army was basically useless from that point on, so I spent a half hour or so painting the book on the disguised Daemonhost's back. I decided to paint it like a chaotic book, and rather fond of how it came out The model isn't quite finished, as there are a few bits and bobs still to do highlights on and similar, but I really wanted to show it off, so here it is


(You need to go onto the gallery and zoom in a bit to be able to see it properly)





So yeah, there you go. any feedback would be appreciated; ways to improve etc.

I got to do quite a lot of work on the leader of the retinue (the Hector Rex model) so I should have photos of that done soon as well I also got basecoats on most of my daemons army, so I should be able to get a fair amount done on those as well soon

there's the body, the metal stuff is basically just the bare metal and a wash at this point, but the skin is finished, and I'm ridiculously proud of how it came out, cause I finally managed to get an Ork's skin right

Here's the head (which is finished at this point)




I tried to make it look like his cigar is lit, though I think I may have toned it down a bit too much, so I might try to brighten up the cigar-tip a bit.

So, me and a friend have been discussing doing a "Tale of Four Gamers" type thing for a couple of years now, and I'm currently on a placement year at Uni so I actually have enough money and free time to be able to do it. Combine that with the new Start Collecting boxed sets that GW are releasing and the Ghostkeel that came out a few months ago, and I've started a Tau army.

I've been spitballing about the idea of doing a Tau army for the past few years, because I've loved the curent stealth suit models since they came out (their release was the first WD I ever bought), and I really liked the idea of white with red/orange accents; coincidentally the GW studio paint scheme is now the colour scheme I came up with, so I have guides and predetermined colour combos I can steal; on the other hand, now my paint scheme looks entirely unoriginal

I've got the boxed set, a codex and a Ghostkeel on order, and they should be delivered on saturday when the boxed set is released, and in the meantime, I've done a paint scheme test on a spare valkyrie tail-fin I had lying around.



So yeah. The painting continues. I'm also hopefully going to be finishing some more inquisition models soon; I need to finish the base for Hector Rex, and finish basing the scabbard-holder, but otherwise they're finished. I also finished the Ork Warboss, so I'll try and get some photos of that taken once I've found my camera charger.
