Rather than go off topic on my other project blogs I have decided to create this thread so I can upload one off projects and pictures that aren't related to my other main blogs.

First up I am going to have a dabble at Dark Eldar and the first model I have done is the Slith, I really liked this model and spent a couple of hours painting him for a local store painting comp. Didn't win the painting comp but I am still pleased with how he turned out. C&C as always welcomed, without further a do here are the pics;







I was inspired with the colour scheme by a fellow Dakkite Mechanicum Jon who has built and painted an awesome Turquoise Dark Eldar Army. Thanks Jon!

I have been given the task of making the trophies for my local gaming club "The Angry Badgers" for our new tournament "Badger Brawl". There are two trophies of marines with lightning claws and Badger heads. I have been attempting to sculpt the badger heads and now have a new found respect for sculptors! Here are my efforts;



Dare I ask for C&C?!? Not my best work but I am hoping once they are painted up they will look ok! At the moment I think they look more like rats!!

Ok first up I have finished the trophies for the Badger Brawl! Here they are 1st and 2nd place as there are only 8 of us playing in the tournament.

1st/Gold/Champion



2nd/Runner up



While I had the airbrush out and doing silver I decided to add a few bits to some other models one of which was Urien



He should have some very shiny blades and needles now!

So, latest update! I have started work on an Ultra Marine standard bearer as an entry for golden demon. Just got some basic colours on at the moment and even those need a lot more work but here he is for you to have a look at;



I also purchased some Space Wolf Tanks of a friend at my local gaming club, paid £55 for all three and two of them were nicer than I expected! I have drilled out the barrels now and I'm going to set about tidying them up a bit in general but overall I am impressed with what I got for the money.

First up the Land Raider Crusader;







Next a Razorback from Forge World with the Extra Armour kit too;







Finally a standard plastic Razorback with Heavy Bolters, not as well painted but I'll get on to that soon;





I also bought this little beauty! £35 inc delivery on Ebay saving £15 off the retail never mind the extra 12% Forge World charge for delivery!



Also in my latest spending spree I bought another friends Grey Knight army for £50, I got a Dread Knight and 15 Terminators one of which is made up to be a Librarian, again a bargain. All unpainted as well which is nice!

Yeah I do like it, its a beast of a tank. AV14 5 hull points and ceremite plating, that's going to be a tough nut to crack.

Looking forward to seeing an army of your Death Guard, I'm not sure what I'll be taking depends on when the new Chaos codex comes out.

A bit more gold on the chest eagles book etc;

A bit more work on the scrolls;



Finally where I am currently;



Please give any comments and criticism as I am trying to do some of my best work on this model!

Oh and something else I managed to pick up off ebay;

Thanks Gits, I'm hoping to keep updating as I go along so any helpful points along the way would be much appreciated. I know it is difficult to comment properly until I am near completion.

Well here is a promised update, did a little more today;



Rear view;



I have also built and kit bashed a Death Watch marine for Graven's competition;



This image is a little bit blurry but it shows where I removed the blood angles symbols and sculpted an Inquisitorial I;





I tried to convey movement in this model like he is bringing his weapon up for a snap shot! Any comments? I have got a little servo skull which I might add too, what do people think too much going on or even cooler?

Thanks Hazzer!

Latest update then! I have been assembling my Space Wolves and finished most of them this morning. I am going to undercoat them this afternoon and then brake out the airbrush and see if I can have them painted by the end of the week, though I haven't built the Drop pod yet (as I remember they can be a bit of a pain!).

So some pics pre undercoating, oh and some of the guys are waiting for their bolters and melta guns until I paint their chests!

Wolf Guard Terminators;



I really don't like the Logan Grimnar model so I made my own to represent him;



Green stuff sculpt on the axe, I know I still need to fill in the blood angels tear drops!











Arjac;





Njal



Grey Hunters, 2 squads;





I am proud of this conversion for a Melta Gun;



Wolf Scouts;



Some left overs used to make some Plasma Gunners and a Long Fang with a missile launcher, though I do need to find him another arm!



Well keep watching to see how these come along, I'll update as I go!
