Hey guys! So I decided to make my own log now. I'm about to start a serious army and not just buy stuff without any big thought about it..

So what can you expect to see in this thread then? Well, Since I want my army to stand out from everyone elses i'm doing some conversions on mine.
Also I got my own paintscheme and such.. No big deal. Almost everyone has there own scheme so..

I'm also looking for some help from you guys. Since i'm still learning ALOT on how to paint and build it would be really nice if you would help me with techniques and such.
or if you just want to check in and look at what i'm up too that works just fine!

Anyways! I hope you'll enjoy what you see here and please leave a comment


To start this thread off then. I'm currently working on a Flight stand for my Vindictus Gunship. That is a converted Valkyrie with a whole bunch of wepons on it.
The base itself is about 2 troopers in there observation post with one looking out over the street and the other one is sitting in cover doing something i haven't come up with yet




Automatically Appended Next Post:
A small update on the base.

I redid the guy looking out at the street and made him look like he's drinking some water and resting his right arm on the window.

I'm also putting some grenades and ammo in the windows in case of an attack.

I also made the other guardsman that's resting in cover. he injured his arm during his assingment and they had to stabalize it.



I made some texture on the pavement and trimed the sides down. I also cut out the shape for the stand and now i'm waiting for the last piece to dry so that i can texture that one up too.

after that it's time for the ruble and stuff to go one there.

Thank you guys

a small update then.

so iv'e finished basing the stand and all that's left now is painting.



it's still wet from the watered down PVA. one other thing is that i wount get any primer until the end of this mounth.. so i wount be able to continue that much on the stand until then..
But i will finish the guardsmen standing in there.

Also I made a small conversion on one of the lasguns. i think it ended up pretty well and i'm considering making a bunch of them for the rest of the army. some with regular lasguns and some with the shorter version


and finally the basecoated guardsmen and their guns.

Hello, I haven't had much time to paint since my last update but i'm done with the guardsmen now.



I'm happy with how they turned out and i must add that painting skin overall is my big nemesis..

2 pics of them in place at the stand





and finally a teaser pic of my next update. what lies inside that really beaten up pagage?



a hint: it's from Forgeworld

Love it keep it up !

Let no man glory in the greatness of his mind,
but rather keep watch o'er his wits.
Cautious and silent let him enter a dwelling;
to the heedful comes seldom harm,
for none can find a more faithful friend
than the wealth of mother wit.

Great paint job on the Guards, the base looks a bit cluttered to me, but maybe its just the dirt? or the wheel idk, just my opinion though. Subbed

Yeah i see your point there and i have also thought about it.. i wanted something to break up all the other ruble that's why i put the wheel there. hopefully it'll look better when i get some paint on there.. otherwise i'll just remove the wheel.
thanks for the opinion anyway, i appreciate it

UPDATE TIME

so what was in the poor beaten up pagage then? it held a Marauder Destroyer! with 4 sets of Hellstrike missiles too


when i first saw that pagage i thought that nothing in it could have survived the transport..
but there's some moments you when you get really happy being wrong. and this was such a moment.

nothing was really damaged. just warped. and here's the most warped pieces





at first i thought i had to talk to forgeworld support to get a new canopy and a new wing.. couse they looked terrible.
then it was time to get rid of the exess resin.


after that was done i tried to bend the warped pieces back in a somewhat better shape. and i think i did quite well with that acctually




well, i did well enough to keep them and not order new ones

ther's still some small things to fix and i'll do that when i wash off the releaseagent.

Hot water helps with the warpage, but yeah, for the amount of money they charge, you would think that they would clean/trim, and unwarp the pieces before shipping them. It is why I like some of the other companies out there like Old Crow, I never get the pieces ins such conditions from Jez as I see FW ship out, and his stuff is far less expensive.

Yeah i surely have. i'm beginning to think if i have bit off more than a can chew it's my first time playing around with resin. and i go and buy one of the biggest things i can i'm happy i didn't buy the Warhound titan i thought of first. and it's opinions and critisism from others that makes any person better. so please continue with that

yeah they're extremely expensive. and iv'e noticed on some peices it looks like they've acctually "glued" on some exess resin. :/ i don't really know how to put it.. but i'll put up a pic and you'll see what i mean.

how you coped with the warp-forge... well this will teach me in the future...and you say you have a nemesis in skin painting...HA! i don´t think so....have you seen my skin? or for that matter my lacking eye painting? you did these tho!

by the way i like your shortened lasgun... more of such conversions!!! and ... great choice for poses... that is what makes the IG so special and interesting... the character you put into these is instantly transfered to your viewers... you reach them so directly! cool stuff... i will be definatly be here for the long run!!!

If I can give you one piece of advice, itwould be to be careful with the nose piece, it's sheer weight is an issue, get it really snug and pinned to the fuselage halves first, not last!

Done with the washing now. the only good thing about not having my gf at home is that i can use the kitchen for my hobby without having her whining about it




and up in the left corner is 2 teeny tiny bits that i forgot to mention.. that's the only thing that was broken when it arrived.. didn't notice them at first thouh. it's one of the antenna bits that sits right behind the cockpit and a powercable thats places at the tail. why on earth would anyone make cables hanging from the aircraft

anyways! next up is what i hate the most.. cleaning.. but that will have to wait until tomorrow!

Paint the cockpit first, fit it in , then mask it all for the rest of the painting. The pilot and Bombadier don't fit in there so easily after a coat of paint, mine was a really tight fit.
