Thanks mcmatilla, they’re not too shabby a replacement. The process is a bit laborious and time consuming but the results are pretty decent once you get the hang of it... I’ll let you know when I do!

I would hazard a guess that maybe it was a further subtle poke at Margaret Thacher (who old Ghazy is named in honour of), who was the Prime Minister of England back when what would eventually become GW was just starting to coalesce. And depending on who ask, she was either very good for England and did great things, or was very bad and in the eyes of some, on par with Hitler himself.

Further point of interest, it's not actually a Nazi swastika, which all face clock-wise. This once is more likely a Manji, given it's thickness and the that it faces counter clock-wise.
I don't think even GW would have been that outright ballsy in calling out old Maggie as a Nazi.


That's me, learned! Thanks for the details. I am never sure whether or not to believe whether Thrakka was named after Thatcher, the only official word was a former exec denying it but granted that was probably a PR move. I don't think that Warhammer 40k has any particular social analysis built in, all the critique is quite explicit: here's a binary choice between anarchy and fascism, aren't they both pretty bad? I feel like in the early days everything was a little bit tongue-in-cheek, with the orks getting a lot of bandwidth for comedy in particular.

Oh dear. I'm really not sure what they were thinking back then!

Excited to see what kind of frankenork conversions you've got coming up.

I hadn’t really spotted the swastika on the studio banner, but Maggie linkages to Thrakka aside I doubt there was a malicious intent. As Snrub pointed out it’s a left facing swastika, whereas the nazis used a right facing one. Sadly the franken-Orks are just the 2nd Ed boyz with later boyz’ arms.


Agreed, I hope that my original post is read in an ironic tone - I'm not accusing anyone at GW of malicious intent, I was just genuinely surprised at a choice made back in the day that feels very different in our modern context.


Back on topic, I am excited for those Chaos Knights! Your desk is looking cluttered with potential. It's nice to have a few different projects to rotate through to keep a sense of variety.

No worries, Don Qui Hotep. It’s been good seeing conversation pop up in my plog. I too learned a few bits from Snrub’s post. I think a lack of variety is what led to me stopping the hobby previously, so I’m keen to switch things up.

Sadly no pics to share but I’ve got the Orks ready for painting and set my last shoulder pad icon to cast last night. My next hobby evening will be to sort them out, trimming excess GS and then filling any gaps. If I’m feeling brave I’ll maybe try to fix one that’s missing a finger! I did a bit more on Pious Vorne, starting on the flames. My girls were doing some painting and crafting in the garden so I thought I’d join them. It was rather lovely enjoying hobby time with them!

Thanks kestrel, the Ambull was a cool mini to paint and I think she came out well (for me at least!). Your Orks sound interesting, I’ve not been brave enough to get the hot glue gun out on mine... that could be because I still have a scar from one from high school!

Thanks Captain Brown, the Orks have been pretty fun as most of my stuff recently had been minimal changes from standard. Looking forward to getting some paint on them some time!

Speaking of paint, I made some decent progress on Pious Vorne tonight. Her flames are about half way through, and all of the rest of her colours are blocked in ready for washes.

Sorry for the blurry pic, it’s late and I’m tired. Plus she’s quite hard to photograph with such a busy background.

I had hoped to finally get my Terminators ready for priming, but this glue is gak! I think I’ve finally gotten all of the icons so stick to the shoulder pads, and mostly the right position. My aim to fill gaps in the circle around the fists won’t happen until next time, but I think most of the fists are pretty neat.

Anyways, time for bed. Thanks for looking!

Cheers tzurk, Pious is about as grim dark as they come, so I wanted something nice and fanatical. I envisaged the only light she sees is from her flames, so will be giving her nice pale skintones. Fancied a really dark metallic look for her armour too, may do a few sharp highlights in places, not sure.

Viterbi wrote:Nice start on the flames! That's something where I still have to find the right recipe. Might I inquire how you do yours?

I’m afraid I can’t claim the recipe as my own, and it takes a long time compared to some of the speed painting that I’ve been doing recently. The recipe is from Darren Latham’s YouTube Flames tutorial. I’m only part way through the Darren Latham Flames tutorial, but as he’s apparently taking his videos down I’ve written up the recipe in the spoiler
Spoiler:


Base Averland Sunset thin coats
Lower portions Yriel Yellow thin coats
Upper half Fire Dragon Bright thin coats to meet the Yriel Yellow
Lowest parts get Flash Gitz/SunburstYellow
Wash (50/50 water paint) lower (hotter) parts of Sunburst Yellow with Dorn Yellow (or mix white with SunburstYellow 50/50)
Wash lowest parts pure white
Thin coats of Trollslayer/Blazing Orange on upper parts of Fire Dragon Bright

This is as far as I’ve gotten so far. The next steps will be;
Thin coats Evil Sunz Scarlet on upper parts of Fire Dragon Bright
Thin coats Mephiston Red on upper parts of Evil Sunz Scarlet
Khorne Red next
Khorne Red and Abaddon Black mixed on upper most bits
Abaddon Black at very tips
Colour blocking is now done, next is details

Lighten the recesses of each colour by one stage
Darken ridges and tips of flames by one or two stages

Thanks turtles, they’ve been really fun to paint, the tutorial is excellent. Amazingly I think she looks better in the pics too!

As hoped for I managed to finish Pious Vorne this evening and I’m really chuffed with how she’s turned out. The flames are definitely the focal point of the mini and I’m really glad I spent more time on them than I normally would. Darrens tutorial was great, I don’t think my flames look anywhere near as good as his, but they’re better than id have managed on my own. My main problem was getting the thinned paint to behave in the same way his does. Mine seemed to dry out as I applied it, whereas his seems to stay wet for ages. He says he uses water and I tried water and airbrush thinner. The water behaves better but still not the same, maybe Nottingham water is softer/better than Bristol’s?

Post flames I also highlighted up her parchments and armour. First bringing back the black/boltgun metal mix away from the recesses, then edge highlights of pure boltgun metal finished off with corner highlights of mithril silver. I like the effect it’s given, nice and dark as you’d expect of a flamethrower wielding soot covered fanatic. It’s much closer to a real gunmetal than standard boltgun metal too. I then highlighted the rivets on her gloves with boltgun metal, amazingly I managed to do it quite neatly too!

So here’s some pics;




I think that last pic shows the flame at its best angle. There’s a couple more in the gallery but they’re pretty similar to the head on shot. Oh and I forgot that I’d added the hazard stripes to the Chainsword part of her lovely weapon!

I also made some more progress with Janus and Espern. Blocking out all of their colours apart from the throw rug on Janus’ shoulders. Espern is usually some with lots of gold, but I figured silver would go better with the red and blue.

I can’t decide what to do with Esperns filigree on his/her armour. I’m currently torn between using a blue shade and highlighting back to silver, or using nuln to share and going gold on the filigree. What do you guys think?

Thanks for looking!

I'm intreegued to see the blue back to silver option but I like the gold aquila on the silver... hat? A gold filigree on silver armour would work really well. Sorry that's not much help at all really. I guess I can see your problem.

Excellent work on those flames. Glad you didn't go OSL. You see some pretty ropey OSL sometimes and it's a shame. It's obviously very very hard to do well, I certainly have never had any success with it. But there's nothing worse than seeing a cracking good paint job ruined by a lot of heavy flamey highlights.

Thanks Ezki, I agree the best tutorials guide you to a system that works for you. I probably wouldn’t have done so many different layers on the flames without it. That’s what really paid off and the tips on how the heat intensity affects the colour.

So at Full Time it’s a resounding victory for Gold. I think you guys are right that he needs some bling (theCrowe, check out my Elves’ helmets for a version of what I had envisioned for the blue. I got some Nuln Oil washes applied to Espern and Janus tonight. So far it’s really brought out how nicely detailed they are.


Janus also got his cloak and hair/tash blocked out too


They both need some bits of Agrax Earthshade and Janus some Seraphim Sepia too, so that’ll probably be a quick pass once the kids are asleep tomorrow and Tuesday. I’ll probably highlight Espern’s armour back up to silver before I attack the filigree with some gold. There’s quite a bit which should keep me busy for a while!

Thanks for looking!

You're probbably right to go gold. I'll bow to the majority. Just one thing though. Is there a tiny bit of blue cloak showing just at Espern's neck on one side that needs to be blue? Come to think of it, moving off the metals in that whole area would be good to allow for the mask/armour/solid bits to feel like there's some potential for movement in there.

I really should get me some nuln oil. It looks the business.

I reckon you could miss the odd step or mix any intermediate colours. Give it a go, what’s the worst that could happen! These 2 are my last from the main boxset, though I do have Escalation sat waiting for building and painting

Not much to report this evening, just Sepia and Agrax washes to get them ready for layering. Now theCrowe has pointed out some missed cloth I might need to redo Esperns face mask.

Oh and I put some Agrax Earthshade on the ancient Ork Boyz whilst I had it out.

I also got some modelling putty in the post to hopefully help neaten up the shoulder pad icons on the terminators. Will give that a try one evening this week to find out.

Thanks for looking comment and pointers welcome!

It's been busy since I was last here!

Pious Vorne looks great. Always good to stretch yourself and learn new things - we all are - and the flames came out well. I think you did a good job of the hazard stripes too.

Espern and Janus are coming along nicely. Was the choice between doing the the filigree blue, or tinting the silver armour blue and doing the filigree silver? A silver trim on any colour tends to look good, the reverse would be unusual, but possible. But if you are keeping the silver armour, then I'd have to go with the gold filigree too...
