Not where I should be

@ Arakasi

Thank you. Of course please see pics below. Trying for a WW1 Browning look but going for twin linked. WIP, box in middle for ammo, thinking of having a grot firing it.

@ rahxephon

Thank you. Built it my self from 2mm styrene sheet. Heated it with a candle to curve it. Made from 2 parts stuck together.

@ Bigfish

Thank you. I tend to do a basic paint job until its complete then touch up and wash up as necessary. Though I am well below the standards you guys set. I am hoping to start learning more technical painting. Many of you are inspiring me to try a lot harder.

So couple quick pics

Ok Sorry its been a while.

Been busy IRL and on a project or 2.

So I guess this thread is going to be open to distractions, as I have a few of you watching here, I may as well get your opinions of some of my other work.

First up a remodel of my sons chaos. He had some raptors that needed to be repainted to bring in line with a change in colour scheme, and also I have been dying to fix the jump packs on these guys, and make them legally armed. This is his main army for his local club meetings so it needs to be legal.

Then he wants a chaos dreadnaught or "even better Dad you could get me a Decimator Daemon Engine from Forgeworld."

Now I would love to be able to get the FW model, but,

1) OMG the price, dont get me wrong if I had lots of money its a good looking model.
2) I feel like having a go at that.

Sooo

Decimator update.

You can tell my heart is not 100% in this, taking soo long.

OK here you go, my take on a butcher cannon, and a pic as is so far.

Please give me some feed back, ideas how to proceed. He is definately getting a siege claw, thinking of a mask on face. And heavy blast shoulder pads coming down over sides/front. Thoughts please.

Not where I should be

So this Decimator Daemon Engine is taking up far too much of my time.

Need some help here.

1) What about ammo feed to butcher cannon.

2) Chaos symbols. My sons army is lead by Abaddon, and I am gradually making them all units that have turned to him, the symbols I have kinda formed on the Decimator at the moment I think lean him toward Khorne. But I dont understand the chaos symbols. I can just about work out the markers and standards, I have the older codex for reference,, but I am struggling to find out if I am mixing up Khorne and tzeentch and nurgle symbolisation. His army has Thousand sons, plague marines, normal CSM, Raptors

Going to end up dropping this in bucket in a bit and moving on to Warkopta.

Here are some upto date pic's please give me some critical thoughts, to inspire me.

Ok back on schedule, and on proper topic.

I have entered another competition. This one is themed "Brotherhood". So I am taking the opportuiniity to start my ork bike boys. "Da Broverhood of Dakka"

So here are some early pics, engine block assemblies. At least for the boys they will do and a rough mock up of what I am looking at.

Please give me some feed back here.
