Nice work on the flamer and nurgle guy. The blue and red theme for your tzentch works really nicely. Your putrid flesh work is pretty nauseating too, which is what you want for nurgle right?

all about that base, bout that base,


Cheers all, thanks for the comments Time was indeed found and I have now completed all my flamers.



















so - I count these as done.
maybe even well done.
They are not the best paint job I've ever done, but they are not bad either by any means, so i reckon jobs finished.

What else have I been doing? Took the kids to the GW store again and got the grey knights model - and mine is very nearly done :



going to re-do his eye glow i reckon



Cheers all!

Yep, those flamers look great. The eyes on the base are fantastic too! Cool job on the grey knight too, a new army to go alongside the 1k sons in the box?

*Looks around - its dusty as hell and all my pot plants are dead*

Hello?

*echoes* hello...ello...llo...o

Damn.

Hey all - been a while I've struggled to find time to post do updates - work has been super busy (still is really) and I havent found the time at lunch to popping back into dakka to update! However, whilst I've been too busy to post I have not been too busy to paint!

And so with that get ready for a big dump of finished pics!
*big dump? ...perhaps I could have used a more appealing turn of phrase there...*

1) Finished - Model of the Month:
ORK NOB!







Very happy with this lad, particuarly as it only took me 3 days to go from unbuilt to fully painted! Now a few of those days had some long assed painting sessions, but whatever - that's a pretty good turnaround for me

2) Finished - Squad of 2nd & 3rd edition Raptors

these will look familiar because they were *practically* finished a month or so ago, but they fell off the to do list. Still, here they are:






Apologies for the not great photos.

3) Finished - Metal Khorne Lord
After spending weeks on the Tzeentch flamers for the Iron Warriors discord painting July August challenge, I pumped this guy out in a few days and liked him so much that I submitted him instead!
I thought this guy's axe turned out well:




4) Finished - Death Guard
Put the final touches on my Daughter's Death Guard model (a model of the month) that she decided she didnt want to paint.




5) FINISHED - Chaos Spawn
Here is my most recent submission for the Iron Warriors Discord challenge - 2 chaos spawn. These two guys were both painted using in 1) the same limited pallet and 2) the same 'mother colour' (Mephistion Red). What is mother colour?
This:









Pumped them out quick, but still very happy with the result. I think They work together and still look like a 'unit' despite the very different complexions.

6) FINISHED KILL TEAM ORK TERRAIN

As I think I might have threatened, I picked up the Octarius box and have been working through the terrain: which is all now finished:

















6) WIP - Octarius NOB

this guy is almost finished now, just working on the NMM parts (which are currently kind of blue):



anyway thats all I've managed to get done since the last post - I'll really try to get on more to post more stuff, as work settles down (fingers crossed).

Cheers all

Wow! That was a Bono of a dump! You certainly have been busy darkkt! Love all of it, especially the Orkses, who have a great skin tone. Their fort came out great too, the green lights are a cool touch. Hopefully work settles down and we get to see more awesome updates!

Cheers lads, as always I appreciate the kind words!

New week means grabbing a few minutes at work when the boss isnt looking and dropping a new post! First off - I finished my Octarius Ork Nob and belted out the bomb Squig:









Very happy with the NMM on this ork, even though it should probably be less shiney. You can also (kinda) see the different approaches I used to the NMM on the power claw compared to the gun - just trying new things really. Let me know which one you prefer!

Anyway, after finishing these two, the latest #ChaosDiscordComp https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/chaosdiscordcomp/ came out for October - This month its SPOOKY!
Spooky was a tough call, so I thought "what about doing a couple of skellingtons I have laying around/"
THEN I thought "Why not do all the skellingtons I have, including those I had attempted to make into a BloodBowl army about 10 years ago and those I had glued to tanks etc as decoration?"
AND THEN I thought "Why not a graveyard diorama?"

And so...


the boys are back in town

Lads that were previously statues:


Dancing sword boys


These guys are all looking at the same thing


Raise Shields!


Come on you sleepy-heads, rise and shine! I didnt have enough legs, so one had to 'make do'...


spikey bois


"I'm Putting the Band Back Together" hits different when the band is all dead tbh



And last up - the ORB and the Necromancer!


I'm thinking of going 'OSL-Heavy on this diorama', and I figure a bigass glowy ORB should result in a nice unhealthy glow.

What is the origin of the ORB? Who can say what the ORB really is? Leave your guesses in the comments!

The Necromance however has changed a little from this pic however - he was originally a metal ghoul that I had cut the forehead from to add a third eye about 10 years agao. I took the eye out as it looked lame, so I replaced it with an even lamer horn.

I needed to reposition his arm:

Add some decorations

Greenstuff

Boom - flambeaux!


But... still. The Horny Necromancer was not doing it for me, so time to clip and change.
Chromedome time - and some reading lights






More candles? More candles.







DId I mention I put magnets on them





And this is the current state of the board:


Anyway, that's the progress so far, I'll do more work tonight and update again soon!
Cheers

Bomb squig is best squig.

That diorama idea really bloomed! Can't wait to see the results.

Loving the bomb squig and it looks like the nob stole some cabling from your Iron Warriors! . I think the claw NMM looks better for Orks imho.

The diorama looks amazing already, the candles on the necromancers back are inspired, will he have a pulpit in front of him with a big book on it? All the candles on the walls will give you plenty of chance to practice OSL on that’s for sure! Good luck smashing it out for Halloween

Cheers man I think I agree - the claw NMM is rougher and looks like 'rough worked steel' with a little rust worked in. The poles and the gun are almost a clean, stainless steel look. Anyway, we can see what the next Ork brings!

Big book? No, but that would have been a cool idea to include. The Necromancer Ghoul will be standing like this:



with the orb in his hand glowing the same colour (likely Blue) as the orb on the ground. the plan is for the ground orb to be bright and cast light on MOST of the scene, while the hand orb will hit those on the top. The candles adn the flambeaux will be casing a contrasting (and much dimmer) orange glow from the back and the sides.

...at least thats the plan I have in my head.



My thought is that a few closer to the back will be in very dim light indeed, and have very little in the way of osl (and correspondingly low visibility)



I could find out that this idea doesnt work at all, in which case I may pull up the ORB and just paint the scene as if its daylight

for the curious,
the ORB - was originally a roll-ball from an underarm deoderant bottle took a while for the perfume smell to go away, but its all good now



The blue box they are standing on is an old children's watercolour paint box from a 2 dollar shop. The paints were seriously terrible, but the box was a good size and shape
Candles are the old trick of lollypop sticks and thin blue tubes from a waterballoon kit, the wire wicks are garden ties with the plastic stripped off.
I hope to undercoat tonight and get a start on the base colours
Cheers!

Looking good, the OSL certainly sounds ambitious. I can see why you’ve marked up all the spots so you can figure out where the light will come from. Are they magnetised to keep their orientation right too?

That's a lot of candles! The candles on the back are inspired, excited to see how they turn out!

no, not really. the magnetisation keeps them in place (and stops me from losing them!), but I need to manage the orientation myself.

Quick update time

I finally started getting some paint down - I need to finish this by the end of the month, so Ive gotta get moving!


Step one:
Undercoat

Doing OSL, it just makes sense to start with Black.

Step two:
Base coat

A lick or two of necron abyss (an old paint - no idea what its called now)

Step three:
work on the light source



Step 4
and make it glowy


Step 5
Check what it looks like on a skeleton - this is my check to see if Im wasting my time here!






Pretty happy with the current progress, reckon I will start on the candle glow soon (for that classic Blue/Orange effect )
Cheers

Thanks all!

very busy at work still, but I'm trying to keep things moving on the diorama. Decided it was time to hit the Ghoul/Necromancer with their orb glow. This will inform the blue colour at the back of the piece.



The back area is only about two highlight layers in, so looks very a bit flat at the moment. I'll hit it with some lighter blues and whites shortly to bring it up to the same as the front skeletons. Looking at it I might also need to darken it in a few patches too... not a big deal though.





I've focused the glow on half of the board as the other half will be lit by the flambeaux. Hopefully.

Cheers
KT

This is Seriously impressive so far kt, it really has the impression of a dark evening lit by the 2 sources so far! It’s going to be stunning when you’re done

Thanks gentlemen, the feedback is greatly appreciated

Didnt have a lot of time to do work over the weekend, but I *did* get time to dive into the flames on my Necromancer. I think they need to be pushed just a little brighter than they currently are, but I do like the contrast Im getting on this guy:









Let me know what you think!

Oooh fancy! The OSL from both sides looks really great, though I feel the flames should be brighter (but I don’t do grim dark/realism, so it could just be my eye!)

No, I think you are right, it absolutely needs to be brighter than it is right now. It's easy to be too conservative and make things dark when adding a contrasting colour - I just need to step it up a notch.

Quickly running out of time though, this has to be done by Sunday night, wihch leaves me 5 nights to get stuff done. Eep!
*insert sweating gif here*

Latest pics coming up. These ALL need to be brightened, at this point I was just blocking in the main colours. I also need to get some 'magenta' blends into these spots to show overlapping areas. These will be pretty discrete I reckon - I dont want too much of a third colour showing up and making things murky.


















Lots and lots of work yet to do... hope I get enough time to do it!
Cheers
