Yeah, difficult as I tend to paint my character models then lose motivation to do the rest... so I'm forcing myself to get the small number of veteran body guards done first..... then can finish the mini force off with the chaplain... (though got couple dreadnought ideas ... hmmm )

So yeah... three more Vets done... again let me know what you think..

That skull chest piece is great, did you sculpt it or borrow a large skull from somewhere? Is Orkjaws seal on his knee pad meant to be white?

As others have said, superb conversions all around. The big skull chestplate might be my favorite as well! Great paintjobs as well, both on the Mortifactors and the Red Corsairs.

Big Skull is in the skulls pack from GW, took a bit of 'finessing' to get it joned up to the back half of torso, but yeah turned out well, looked pretty cartoonish before paint was worried... Of course was meant to be a white purity seal ;-) (noticed it as soon as posted the picture, its red now.... )

Cheers Guys...

Only got the one new update, but got the last few guys almost done as well....
next is nice display bases for these and the corsairs so they can sit and get dusty on a shelf :-)

But anyway, heres my head Chaplain Antibon, Guard of the Crossroads and Keeper of the Keys. (Antibon, is another name for Papa Legba, you wanna talk to the other Loa [read join the mortifactors] you gotta go through him)....

let me know your thoughts...

Oh man that Chaplain is a great addition to an already impressive army. Just the right spots of colour I think to make it pop and suggest tendons/muscles being pulled apart...

Great work!

Hadn't really thought about looking like muscles and tendons particularly, just colour matched the other cloaks, but now you mention it I can see it ... happy accident.... Cheers guys...

Well we just here for a little aside from the mortifactors... gonna make myself a little Inq28 warband next... and when over Christmas period tried my hand at a bit of sculpting of an eldar Harlequin that's joined the group for whatever his reasons are... thought though that eldar should be much lankier than some of the models, unnaturally so... can see hes taller than the primaris marine hes standing beside even without the base...so yeah...

what did I learn... Sculpting is hard ;-) and again I dont have patience to let parts cure properly before smashing them with my next cack handed go... it is what it is and overall with paint it looks pretty good... Let me know what you think, and I'll get back to the final 4 mortifactors for my January pledge in next update....

Cheers

Well my exercise in procrastinating finishing off the last few Mortifactors continues, but they are now literally the last models I own so I will get the squad finished....

But fancied something little bit different and really liked the model so had a bash at Lady Olynder….. a brilliant model, but goddamn its fiddly to put together and fragile (snapped the end off the rose vine, and lost it on the floor somewhere, and I was being gentle ;-) ...dunno how you would transport it to use in games and whatnot, but it can sit on a shelf no bother.... let me know what you think....

The Lady looks amazing. Your grim n' gritty style suits it perfectly. Sorry I missed that Harlequin, too. Very effective.

Lady Olynder is jaw-droppingly good.

She looks genuinely scary, instead of just vaguely spooky. I can actually imagine little 28mm Freeguilders animating just so they can turn around and leg it away from her.

Though guards may sleep and ships may lay at anchor, our foes know full well that big guns never tire.

One final update and the Mortifactors are done display base finished.

Really fun project, nice to take something I've seen many times over years and try to put own spin on it, taking inspiration from vodou and early African religions.

Cheers.... now what next?

Olynder looks fantastic, the grittier style really suit Nighthaunt and that's a direction I'm planning with mine. Very well done.

The display board for your Mortifactors is sweet, really brings all the marines together nicely.

Bit of a aside again this week, making just random 40k models for a sort of Inq28 warband maybe? ...

This one started life as some sort of metal medieval ogre from God knows where...

Turned him into a proto grey knight or something? Who even knows anymore...paint wise wanted in more grey than silver, but there is a shine to it... Using some coloured washes to colourise the shadows rather than using the same old nuln oil or similar..

Let me know what you think...

Inq28 warband is taking shape? I have no ideas of rules or balance, but here we have some sort of ash wastelander on some sort of cyborg animal? who even knows..... bits from models I've never seen or heard of bought on ebay for a few quid....

It is what it is....

OK, well onto the next thing...something bigger...

Bought one of these bad boys off ebay, but couldn't leave it as is ;-) so got to chopping.





Cant think why, but had been reading up on the poor Celestial Lions, and decided I would convert and paint it up as one of them.
Beyond Lions what's known, well saw the name of the packleader/chaptermaster after Armageddon was called Ekene, search for that and its an Africa/Nigerian originating name, makes sense that's where Lions come from ;-)
So just to add bit more flavour, my guy (no name yet) has some tribal type warpaint on his face (and helmet!, options!, pro tip - Mash'ems heads fit perfectly ;-)),




I also "sculpted" some traditional African patterns onto the converted power claw.
(that's why I like these tribalistic chapters, can make it lore friendly that the sculpting done by tribespeople on homeworld and that's why so basic ;-) ).





and painted some african symbols onto his jousting sheild, alongside his rank symbol on his shoulder of the one arm done so far ;-)




My guys got cloak, the one from the Lore given to Ekene by Grimaldus on Armageddon, painted in hi sword Brethren colours.



and working on a spear/glaive option instead of the bolt pistol...





on bit of a hold at moment waiting for pressed brass lions that coming from foreign climes, so see when they arrive :-S

let me know what you think so far....

I love that Lady Olynder. She looks truly horrific and terrifying, whereas many paint jobs just make her just look ethereal and vaguely creepy. Yours generates visceral fear.
