@Power Elephant - Those tiny free-hand warning signs are absolutely ace. Well done! It adds a lot of flavor to the weapon itself.

Thanks! But to be honest they didn't turn out as good as I hoped. I did them with my only detail brush which was in the process of dying at the time. Initialy I didn't plan on adding all these details on a mere cultist, but I ended up liking the model more and more as I was painting it.

This red dragon will not be red...alternative paint scheme ftw.

I did some building today, and there were a lot of interesting choices that were made, but in the end I'm quite happy with the build... here he is with a deamon prince and deathwatch marine for scale...





Can't wait to get him slathered in silver paint...

Guess I'll finally writhe out of the depths and flail my tentacles about for all to see. Got some old (RIP) Dystopian Wars RoF forces before everything went ploin-shaped. Here's to hoping Warcradle doesn't put cowcatchers on everything.

My entry will be the larger flyers in the Republique of France Bombardment Group.

must...paint...something...

just a small entry from me this time, but I've had an idea for a simple little mini-diorama/display model in the back of my head for a good while now, but haven't gotten around to it...and since I don't have time to do anything bigger, I figure I might as well use this opportunity to get it done
...kitbashed Morsov, from mad max fury road...from the bit where he jumps off the back of the truck and blows up the buzzard's buggy... WITNESSSSS!!!!

(reference pics, in case you don't know what I'm on about)

Automatically Appended Next Post:
ehh...well, done I guess...for future reference, maybe don't brush-prime with gesso...turned out kinda grainy ...I mean, I did kinda want a bit of a dusty look to it...but not quite that much

...also, the head was a bit of a hackjob I'll admit...it's actually a spare head from mantic's scifi zombies sprue...that head doesn't actually have a nose, so I carved one out of sprue and stuck it on!
...aside from that, it's cadian legs, catachan torso, 2 different catachan combat knife arms, some 1mm and 1.5mm styrene rod for the "thundersticks", and an ork battlewagon gunner hatch on an old paint pot

mine's done now, got added to my last post ...ehhh...didn't turn out all that good, looks allright up on my shelf though, so meh

haha...can't wait to see that dakkajet finished, looking great so far! - it's got red so it goes fasta, blue so it's lucky, green so it's orky (da best!), and yellow for louder dakka...not sure what orange does, but dat's like red and yellow right? so I guess fasta and louda!

...it's good to be green!

A quick WIP pic. I tend to be very bad at posting these. I usually take a few on my phone, but don't get round to uploading and posting them.

You'll notice Drycha is no longer glued to her base. That happened "organically" (ie I accidentally broke her off it when trying to get to an awkward area I was painting. Anyway, the bark is largely done. I might go back and make some adjustment at the end, but it's basically fine. I've also painted the runes, and for the most part finished the honeycomb parts as well. I might put a gloss varnish on the honeycomb to make it look shiny and full of honey. What do you guys reckon? I might just put a dot of varnish in each honey hole. I don't know what those things are called. Honey hole sounds like the name of a seedy strip club. The Honey Hole. Drycha would not approve of that. But I digress.

I'll get in on this I guess. Not going great guns on anything, just adding more troops to the Eldar army.
