Thanks guys

Well. He is Done. This is Arkus of the Black Legion. He is basically speed painted (for me anyway) as he was done in about 7 hours.






Here he is facing off against Banus (Poor Banus is seriously out classed). Banus has had his head repositioned and a Combat blade added.

Well, Arkus didn't have much fun his first outing. He got eaten by a Genestealer :S Banus killed 4 lol.

New update. I managed to grab 5 guardsmen off ebay for (relatively) cheap! A few extras from my bitz box and they're almost ready to rock n' roll Not sure about a colour scheme though. Suggestions?

Cheers chaps. I should have an update for you at some point this weekend. Nothing to do with the Guardsmen though as I'm still waiting on an arm to finish the sergeant. Their colour scheme is going to be the same off the old Codex City Fight. It just looks cool.

They are very much GW miniatures. They're a combination of Major Jaxon, Sergeant Dorian Black and the IG booster packs.

Hang on... Are these are from the 54mm Inquisitor range? I thought Turaxa had mistaken them for 40k minis. Derp!

Holy crap! I forgot who's thread I was reading and was looking at the Chaos Marine, thinking, I like the tattooed skin, that's neat, and the gold, really nice, and I wonder if that's some kind of Forge World model? Then I saw Banus and it took me a about three seconds to realise it was 54mm!!!

Literally the best Chaos Artemis conversion I have ever seen. Kudos.

Yeah man. 54mm all the way

Gogsnik: I doubt that. there's some awesome Chaos Marines out there. There's a couple of converted ones that won a US Golden Daemon several years back. That were done in a molten metal/lava look. Thanks though


Right. Mini update because this thread has gone too long without an update. This is my distraction from my distraction from my distraction from the project I SHOULD be doing.......... not that I can remember what that was now. Regardless. Here is the Captain of the ship Sector express Fry West and his party consisting of MORBO, an angry and violent alien bounty hunter and lastly some form of Xenos Fry picked up on his travels - Jokingly named the Hypno toad for it's ability to hypnotise potential victims.



Not sure what colour to do his trousers. Ideas?


I have also had my cultist models cast up by a professional (ie: not me in my my garage)

Cool cultists. Was it expensive get them cast professionally?

Each cast wasn't that bad but the mould itself was £40 so not cheap. It's only because it took 3 moulds to get everything done. I've had one done before and It's only been £20 for the mould because the model has been one part.

Well, back to Gothic for the time being. Some random Ebay purchases of cheap Ork ships........... This is 750pts. No idea if it's legal but the fleet will grow

We have 1 Kill Kroozer, 8 Ravagers and 6 onslaughts.




They are just base coated at the moment. Gunmetal, a wash and a dry-brush but I'm not sure what colours to do for the details. Ideas?

In other news I have decided to re-do the bases on my large imperial fleet. Unfortunately my enthusiasm ended when I realised that that would be 83 ships. Eads!! Oh well......... I've bought the bases now! :-\

Well, That escalated quickly!!

Some WIP pics of my escorts being redone. 15 Swords, 15 Firestorms and 15 Cobras. The green is done, the metal needs a couple of highlights and the prows need doing.




Also, some Battleships! 2 Retributions, 1 Terra, 1 Victory and 2 Emperor class battleships

Speaking of sudden Mania!!

Ok, after 8hrs of Inquisitor 54mm games yesterday I'm taking a well earned break from big toy soldiers and concentrating on tiny toy soldiers instead.

I never liked the GW Grand cruisers and I couldn't find anything that really suited my Bakka fleet theme of old Cargo ships turned Warships. So I've started possibly my most complicated Plasticard project yet........ The RUBRUM NANUM. A Huge Ore Transporter who's massive holds have been converted into flight bays to turn it into an Annihilator class Grand Cruiser

Still WIP. The Dorsal detail is done, as is the majority of the Bridge section. I still need to do the engines and work out what I want to do with the Port/Starboard engine rooms. Think I should leave it boxy or add the Fins/Wings that normal Navy Cruisers have?

Pics are a bit rubbish but you get the General idea.

Not much more done but a fair bit of work put into the engines. I ended up making a cast of one engines as I couldn't seem to make two look alike

I've also make the little fuel pod. This will be used as the master to create the other 7 to fill all the ports.

Very nice, any chance of casting up the hull when you're done?

I'd vote for no wings or fins. I've been paiting Space Fleet for the last year and really like the Emperor Captial ship which is a proto-BFG ship but the starkness of no wings or fins makes it more brutal like a flying battering ram with minarets and steeples.

Thanks mate.

Right, before I go any further, What say you on the wings/fins on the side? The lack any detail at the moment because I'm not 100% on them yet........ although looking at the pictures they are growing on me.

It's a great scratchbuild and I hope you can cast it up once it's done.

Wings are traditional, so it looks fine with them. I still think it might be interesting to try one without.

Still plugging away with the old beast. Not much more to do to the main body now before I start on the prow(s). Only have the underside of the weapon ports to do and that's it unless you chaps think of anything I can add to the work I'm already done?

Many, many pics.

Dystopian Wars has been doing some interesting stuff with ship hulls with interchangeable towers. So you can consider multiple towers, a utilitarian one, an ornate one and so on...

Maybe a larger keel with a large expanse of flat white space to add heraldry or freehand? On the flat spine on the bottom maybe some small domes or bumps?

Well. She's done. I ended only making one prow for the time being but I may make another one or two versions. In all honesty I'm sick of the sight of Plasticard at the moment so for now she's only having one prow! Unless you're desperate for another style of prow.

She ended up being a LOT bigger than I had originally planned. She was going to be grand cruiser sized but she actually dwarfs a Battleship :/ Oh well. Guess I'll be making another one at some point then






Here's some scale shots against a Battleship and the Dreadnought.

Right, because I spent way too much time on the last ship and it ended up being a LOT bigger than I had originally planned I went and made another one. It was a bit of a rush job (I did it in one day whilst dodging jobs from the MRs) so it's not fantastic but it will do the job.

Here is the RUBRUM NANUM (Red Dwarf). An old mining ship that has been laid up and rotting for centuries. Now converted to the fleet Carrier and pressed into service.

She's 'done' for now. She's a bit boring...... she needs some more colours on her but I'm not sure what.







I should do a space bug (or two). Do I do them as escorts or as a light cruiser(s)?

Despite having almost 20,000pts in Gothic I have very little in the way of scenery. With all my hobby stuff packed away due to a house move I had little in the way of little ships to hand so I finally bit the bullet and started making some scenery! - Asteroids!

They're pretty simple, just some 'Lava Rocks' I picked up from the local supermarket. There's more than pictured here, I have about 40 in total now and that was only half the bag! (not bad for £6!).

I also threw some bits on one of the larger rocks to make a quick and easy Space station. It's not had much effort put into the paint job but, hey, it's only scenery. ;D
