after about 2-3 hours of painting, this is my finished chimera.







I'm rather happy with it, the weathering is amidst the favourite i've done, and i'm in love with auto-cannon chimeras, so much so i've gone back and retrofitted a magnetisation to my command chimera so it can have one too!

Time for an update of sorts... found myself visiting an old warhammer stockist who stopped when gw put its embargo on international trade, amidst other anal moves. they did however have a few old models, so i picked myself up one of the warhammer khorne campions... who's on his way to becoming my Colonel 'Iron Hand' Straken.

thanks man! taking a bit of time because of constantly sculpting and reshaping it to get it right. horus is hard, but its a commission, so needs to operate at terminator scale as per the request by my client.

Now for the big family bumper pack update. 3 of the tanks are now 98% complete. some touch ups on the freehands and 'brass' paint for the icons needed, but largely done.







Any C&C?

Update time, i've decided to strip back the original test trooper, not least of all because, as one of the last photo's shows, he got white spraypaint all over him. I've also began to knock back the snow, since when its had a day or two to dry the baking powder becomes a lot more powdery and thus comes off easier.

And as a christmas present to one and all my kind viewers; here's my army at present, taken on my new 16mega pixel camera.

In an attempt to provoke the four people currently logged into the internet into commenting, here's some shots that hopefully show that each guardsman has his own unique grotesque.

This is a very encouraging start - the tanks are turning out very well and the snow effect looks excellent (particularly now that you say you've 'knocked off' some of the excess).

The Blood Pact are turning out very nicely - great work on the grotesques. What amuses me is you have even more Blood Pact armour littered in the background of these group shots - please pick up that Leman Russ

I think if you maintain this kind of momentum the company will look stupendous.

Hey dude! thanks for the comment, i'll try and sort out some shots of the snow on the tanks now its knocked back a step. As for the background... i tend to treat my russ' like scrap until i get around to painting them properly, at which point i take care of them. i do plan to add dirt effects to this army, well more, using a technique i used on this stompa a while back



And as a bonus, here's my option riddled tank, with its 3 turrets and six guns.

Now, asides from a chronic case of the productivity bug, time for a close up of the second gen scheme for my blood pact, still working on it though, trying to get it to a point i'm happy with;



and a cookie for the first person to guess why a freshly base painted (thus PIP) steel legion tank is in this log.

Cool army you're building there. Good color modulation and weathering on the tanks.

thanks for the comments guys! glad you like the progress i'm making, and that there's still people looking.

here's a tutorial i put together about... 4 years ago for making grotesques, the basics i use today are the same, only a little more practised.

grotesques



firstly, apply a basic layer of GS over the mouth of the guardsman. then, using a craftknife, cut the the square for the mouth. once your happy cut in as many teeth as you want, here i've gone for a subtle four.



Once your happy with the mouth, the next stage it to score in the mouth creases at the side. if you've done it like me, theres a little too much gs, not to worry, just push this up to form the fraimwork for the nose. you'll need some more gs, tiny amount, to add the notch to the chin, and then the nose itself, done simply by pushing the sides of the nose down, and then pushing in a pair of nostril's, giving it an enlarged look.

finally, as a detail, i always add khorne symbols on the shoulder pad



easy to do, just add a square peice of gs, cut in the basic symbol, then remove the excess. if its a bit spindly, like mine was, press down the gs, and then use the craft knife to neaten up and add the central triangle.


and you finished trooper should look like this:





hope this helps you guys, and maybe gives you reason to return as i progress!

Return,I never left
awesome tute I finished the Sons of Sek squad and deep down I know it is not 100% legal to use max-mini heads no matter how cool they are.
But then again I never play so what the hell do I care,but I would love to give scuplting my own a shot.

yeah, its easy, pretty fun once you get into the habbit of it...


Update time... found some gold paint, and i thought i'd offer a detail shot of the weathering.




and i've finished basecoating the steel legion tank...



still no guessing as to its function? why its here in this log?

thanks vitru! this weathering is the next step up, since red hasn't killed this;

Steel legion time; no one guessed the secret, so see if you can work it out from the clue in the final photo






I'm SO CLOSE to collecting steel legion atm it isn't funny. not painting red is fun.... and the scheme they have is about a 13.4 on the fun as feth meter.

C&C welcome, but not expected.

thanks for the comments guys, no pictures today, but i have started looking into this steel legion idea a bit more. got to be honest.. had such fun with what work i've done on the first tank it seems wrong to stop.

ah dear... i've gone loyalist.

Ok... so its time for an update, ive start work on the next tank, made progress on the punisher cannon, started rebuilding a turret and put down the basics to turn the tank crew into steel legion.

The look you get on your tank armour is fantasic- Sorry if I've missed it but is it all paint? or do you use any weathering powders?
