Dude those goops are gorgeous. You nailed the "wet goopy" look down perfectly and the colours are so entrancing. I especially love the colours on Cosmo but I feel you hit the depth and saturation for colour superbly on clubber. I never thought I'd be so excited to see glue blobs painted to be all pretty yet here I am. Great job, would love to see more.

The slimes are excellent too love the iridescent sheen on

Lastly, big fan of your fluff the little snippets for August Riin are fantastic stuff more of that please!

Thank you very much, all.

Commander Cain, that's the second time a tutorial has been requested for the slimes. I will have to consider it.

I.F., it's weird, right? They're blobs of glue. But I probably spent as much time applying paint to them as any regular mini.

Ynneadwraith, I will most certainly be returning to the more fluff-heavy =][= stuff. More plans than time, like the rest of us.

Novelist, I like the AoS aesthetic quite a bit, and find it slots very easily into 40K.

Thank you all again for looking and for your compliments.

Knight Models is one of those companies I always thought of buying figure from but never got around to it. Always a more relevant model to buy, and while pretty, they kept getting passed over. But then the Marvel line went kaput, and the prospect of it not even being a possibility anymore spurred me to purchase at least a few. That and a friend went insane when the announcement was made and bought everything he could get his hands on and I figured I should at least have a team of my own if we ever played.



Frank here came miscast. His right arm, which is a separate piece, ended about midway through the gun stock instead of the elbow where it should have. Resculpted what was missing, altering the pose in the process to make the sculpting easier. I am big Punisher fan, but for some reason this is the first Punisher figure I have painted, ever. Weird.

I picked the X-Men as my team since I like the characters in the starter line-up and they were available locally. I added a Talia to stand in as a proxy for whichever telepathic girlfriend I wanted for Cyclops since I couldn't get my hands on a Jean Grey.













Nice models, all told. They lived up to the Knight Models reputation for casting in some spots. It seems the X-Men especially were showing some wear in the molds. Frank and Talia were better. Still, some neat sculpts and they were fun to paint. Maybe I will get a chance to play the game, maybe not.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks, guys.

The shine is just from the gloss varnish I use. Krylon Gloss Clear. For the slimes I just give it a little extra and skip the Dullcote.

Now for some Kingdom Death. I finally got up off my rear and started painting the models in the color scheme I had kicked around for quite some time but for some reason never took the chance at trying. I wanted something stark and gloomy, but still interesting. I settled on a sort of Sin City style, with a grayscale broken up by small shots of color. I am fairly pleased with the result and am looking forward to painting a lot more of these models, since I love me some KD.

Up first, the four starting survivors, with a solo shot of my favorite of the four.





And the first Monster, the White Lion.

Thank you, guys!

Aku-chan, I have watched your progress on KD stuff here and on Reaper's forum, always good to see you painting.

I.F., that's some high praise, thank you.

I have aspirations to play Song of Blades and Heroes. The free-form warband construction leaves so much room for creating new groups of models using figures that would probably never see the table otherwise. A great excuse for buying and painting random models. This group was inspired by the Universal Monsters lineup. The idea is that there is a sanctuary of sorts for monsters that don't want to prey on humanity hidden in an abandoned cathedral. Sort of a NIghtbreed/Sanctuary scenario. Of course nobody ever leaves the monsters alone, or they feel the need to set out on missions to aid those that would otherwise hunt them down and exterminate them a-la the X-Men. The latest model is the Gill-Man for that group. A vampire, phantom, and egyptian themed model are incoming, as well as another battle-sister, since monsters need human sidekicks.

Jazz-hands!



A Reaper Bones model.



And the group so far. Gill-Man, Wolf-Man, and the technological Frankenstein type and their friends.

Thanks for looking.

Yeah. It's a weird pose. I guess he is supposed to be swimming, but he isn't underwater. That's why I put the water around his feet, like he had just jumped out of it. Really he looks like he's trapped in an invisible box. Gill-mime.

Here's a couple minis I painted a while ago, but never got around to taking pictures of or showing to anyone. First off, some figures from Relic Knights. Game never really got any traction in my group. Too bad, really. I like the models for the most part, and it was fun and fairly unique. Maybe we can give it another shot when the new rulebook comes out. Here's Rin Farrah, Rollo, and a conversion I made based on the Navarre Hauer model to use in my Prismatic band. He may get painted here in the near future, as I am still happy with how he came out and still want to see him finished along with Candy, Ayu, and Cordelia.





And a BONES purple worm, just because. It's a cool, simple model, good exercise.

Thanks, b-tone! Everybody needs a worm made out of common household trash.

I like Boba Fett. I like Predator. I had a conversation where both came up and a light went on. Fettator! Had to make a model. Then I found out I was not the first to have this revelation. By far. Turns out there were t-shirts, for crying out loud. Whatever. I made the figure anyway. He's on a Sedition Wars base, and in my mind at least he fits into that part of my collection because of the other homage figures that were produced during the (ill-fated) KS.



Started out as a Horrorclix Predator, added some bits and GS.

And here he is with some of the other Alabaster characters.

Thanks, Ynneadwraith! Glad you like him.

Like many, I picked up the new edition of 40K. Dig the Primaris, despite my early misgivings over the whole NuMarines thing, fluff, perceived obsolescence of all Marines before now, etc. Started painting a Lieutenant, but had to pause to make this guy. Not a legal loadout by any means, but whatever. He still has the wrist-bolter and a well-made stabby/cutty/power thing. A Primaris Captain in Gravis armor. He'd make a good Terminator Captain in earlier editions, I suppose. Who am I kidding? I'm never gonna play this game.

Less than a week before 8th edition came out I finished the first marine in the latest version of my chapter's (The Angels of Truth) color scheme. I work so slow that there were only about a dozen painted models in the army before, and they were all RT era models or so that had no place in the army after I decided I wanted it to be made up of more modern plastics. So updating the color scheme really isn't that big of a deal since it wasn't exactly super-established.



And I painted another KD survivor. Fist of the North Star is probably one of my favorite things, so it was very early on in the first KS that I decided I had to make a survivor based on Ken. How long ago was that? Yeah, I work slow. Of course, he's died a few times like all survivors in KD, but Hokuto Shinken can never truly be defeated.



Thanks for looking.

Both models are looking great dude. Love the monochromatic Survivor model. How modern of plastics are ya gunna do for your marine chapter? If you make them a Primaris chapter then you`d have to paint less models and you could get fieldable units faster. I may be biased though as after seeing the primaris marines in person I`m in love with their scale over the older marine models.

Thank you.

I had a lot of Marines in my collection that I had just accumulated over the years. RT metals, 2nd edition metals, RTB01's, then some 3rd edition plastics and a few more from later I had picked up here and there. Dark Vengeance Terminators and such. Then BoP and BaC happened and I had a ton of Marines. So I culled just about everything pre-3rd plastic, that way everything would have a similar style. Now the Primaris have me wondering if I should liquidate the old marines again, as I too am fond of the new look. I don't know how many times I want to turn my collection over, though. And field able isn't really aconcern. I don't play very often at all, but I can't get the game aspect completely separated from the modeling aspect.

I feel your pain on wanting to update to the newer models but army turnover then starts dragging you down. I pretty much stopped working on my craftworld elder because I don't want to buy the finecast aspect warriors in the hopes that they do make updated plastic versions some day. I got burned when the new jetbikes came out as I had just bought 9 the month before and painted them all up only to have the nicer new ones come out a month later. At least if you go primaris you know theres no risk of them getting newer models of the same units anytime soon.

Quite true. I am sort of in a holding pattern waiting to see what sort of multi-pose kits they have planned and if the army is going to fill out with more unit options. Don't care for the new captain and librarian or the flying tank. Not a huge fan of the Dread. Reivers look cool, but don't want to sink a ton of money into more Easy to Build models if a full kit is around the corner.

Sometime between when I started this thread and the release of 8th edition I finished building the rest of the truescale squad for =][=/Inq28.

Adeptus Astartes of the Sun Guardians Chapter, the Sons of Solcustos.



(working fluff/subject to change) In the local mythology, there once was a great king (the sun), whose greatest warrior and protector was his son (the moon). Imperial missionaries had no trouble slotting the Emperor and an undisclosed Primarch into those roles, and the Marines as living representations/descendants of that great hero. The Sun Guardians fortress-monastary is even located conveniently on the moon orbiting their homeworld. Protectors, wardens, with a strong sense of martial honor and pride, the Sun Guardians were the perfect choice to stand guard over an artifact recovered by an Ordo Malleus Inquisitor before it could be safely transported to a permanent holding facility. Also, their base was close by. Unfortunately, the forces of Chaos attacked before the artifact could be moved. Aided by a Keeper of Secrets, the traitors made off with the artifact, killing all those present with the exception of these five, five veterans tasked with holding the line at the door of the vault itself. Instead of killing them, the Daemon bewitched them, overcoming their minds and leaving them standing slack and staring while the artifact was removed. To be left alive with their failure, the Daemon thought, was a far crueler fate than death.

While such a failure would easily have meant death for a normal soldier, five veteran Astartes are not so easily squandered. A penance, then. Indentured servitude to the Inquisitor and the Ordo Malleus. A vow to lend their might to his causes without question, that they may atone. There is also the matter of the Daemon who left them alive. The beast must certainly plan to return at some point to claim the souls of those it has brought low. Perhaps the Inquisitor believes that these five also serve as tempting bait for prey of his own?

Or something like that. Marines from a busted up Chapter. Working for the Ordo Malleus. None too happy about it. Maybe getting a raw deal from the Inquisitor, too.

Individual pics:











I also realized I had not shown two of the five Sigmarines I had converted. One is the Chapter Champion for the Angels of Truth, a position currently held by Arcadian Thraxus, Supremitor Veritas. The other is a depiction of Captain Madox as he might appear in =][=/Inq28.
