Excellent stuff as always great use of the Maulerfiend kit in there.

Yup. Those robobeastmen and drones are epic!

I am now accepting commissions for any hobby project! I've been in the hobby since '92. Specializing in traditional brush methods, creating a gritty dark aesthetic. From single character models to entire armies. From individual terrain pieces to entire table tops. From tabletop level to masterclass level painting. From purchasing and assembly to leveling up your assembled armies paint job. If it has to do with the hobby I can do it! Hit me up and let's chat about your project!

I hope you'll take this as the complement it's intended as, but you've got a warped mind, man. You come up with some messed up gak.


Oh and congrats on making this terrifying monstrosity. Did you intentionally make it look like a piranha with wings or was that just a happy accident?


The demon-armiger is fantastic though. Those two kits meshed amazing well.

Syro - The main one I had was based on tubes, but half the fun is finding new challenges, as both entrant and host


kestral - Thanks man! A rotten, pox-ridden version would work really well I think.


Theo - Glad you approve


Llama - Many thanks. There's a lot of interesting bits in that kit.


graven - I had some ideas for a bike with a slug instead of a wheel, but actual caterpillar tracks is an excellent concept. (And apologies, not put together a package for you yet....hopefully I'll get it out next weekend)and


CK - Thanks so much, glad I'm hitting the right spots.


genom - Good to hear, thanks.


Doc - Merci!


Shrub - I definitely take that as a compliment

Well that was my first impression, but I was thinking it was too squat at first, and had the head piece the other way, as seen in the previous post. But when I decided to switch out the fans for wings, a flying plague piranha seemed a sensible choice



So lots of little bits played with but not much to show this week I'm afraid. Just a little progress on the big drone....









Been building up the tentacle bag too, as I need a few for dangling down under this one.


And as inmygravenimage put out a little knight/night themed comp ( https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/763977.page#10155400 ) to celebrate 300 pages of fun, I started putting together a little something. I had considered a bat-ork or a bat-marine, but was really thinking a bat-gretchin would make for a fun little diorama. But as I was looking through all my metal snotlings I had a brain wave, who was more likely to read comics and get into cosplay in the 40k universe (or my twisted little corner of it anyway) ?



Obviously it would be those playful little nurglings

I have plans for Two-face, Penquin, and Robin to join these two on the rotten streets of Gotham. Maybe a little bat-go-kart too.....

And don't forget about saving the packaging from your sweet treats for the latest League terrain comp.....( https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/763930.page#10154516 )

Cheers CK

Quick one whilst I play with some other bits....

Kid_Kyoto was making some BFG ships out of star destroyers a while back and mentioned that you could probably use the hulls to sandwich a thicker style of ship. That sounded interesting and the kit was cheap so I ordered one. However when I opened it I immediately thought of something different, and went off to order more of that one (Bandai 001) and another star destroyer kit (Revell).

Still waiting for the Bandai, which is slightly smaller, but did get my 3 Revell kits, so started in on The Hierarchs, some kind of warp entity/daemon....Still thinking the fluff out.








Not decided yet on whether the second one will get tentacles like the first coming out of the upper space, or more of the internal structure as in the lower gap.

You could always have the tentacles coming out from underneath the base instead of out of a hatch. Would make it look more like a sea creatures shell than a summoning device.

Lovely idea! And I vote for more tentacles coming out! It almost gave me a hermit crab feel, with the pyramid merely being a shell to lure in the unwary.

Theo - For now I'm trying to avoid tentacles from underneath, the idea is these will be floating off the floor, and in my mind the base is 'fairly' featureless. Which is not to say I won't give in to temptation and have a couple peeking out from at least one.....


K_K - Would make for some cool heavy ships I think. The tricky part may be the engines, that's an awkward shape to fill, requiring 6 triangles in the present configuration. If you had three of the kit engine sections (obviously you only need 2 destroyers for this shape) they still fit in, then you have 3 triangles required to fill the gap.


Cain - Many thanks, drones that incorporate biological entities should be a bit creepy at least I feel

Oh I doubt I was the first, they'd been out a few days before I chopped mine


Snrub - What are things for, if not for turning into other things?


Kernel - Thank you!


graven - gribbly nonsense all over the shop......


CK - Thanks, I'm confident there will be more tentacles involved somewhere....


Dr H - Cheers! All blobs are secretly desiring pyamidical shells for their safety and comfort.



No pics, but the hatch in question is getting a mix of tentacles and 'innards' as in the lower space....Which I guess points to the inside just being chock full of tentacles, most of which slither around inside, with occasional forays I to the surrounding area.

Now have two more under construction, with several of the smaller Bandai on their way to enable the creation of 4 of those two. Playing with several ideas, my current thinking is these initial 4 will be their own thing, with the smaller 4 each having a slight connection to the four 40k chaos gods. And as others have suggested, there's always possibilities for snails, crabs, cephalopods and assorted walkers based off the idea.


In the meantime I figured I should do something with those Conquest Primaris marines....something other than Primaris marines obviously....

acrowsperch - Nurgle's all about the cute and cuddly


Kernel - Thanks. I had planned for those to go on regular marines, but couldn't wait any longer to use them


graven - Merci mon ami. Trying to decide if I want 7 with polearms, or a mix. Probably end up with a mix which will split into two squads at some indeterminate point .....


Cain - It's actually his Apple skull X that he's dropped. Don't think he bothered with insurance either.......


Cam - Cheers bud! They would make an interesting drop-pod.....hmm, more fodder for the list


CK - Thanks! For most of the time it was either a chain blade or a nurgly chopper on the end, then when I was thinking how to extend the haft back a bit.....



Filling the Heirarchs with tentacles...





No. 2
Still haven't quite decided on what will become of the two spheres yet









No. 3
Haven't figured out what else will define the main face apart from some slight differences in the hole









No. 4
This one will be an eye.....but it may get swapped for a smaller one, surrounded by........tentacles



And whilst I was playing with tentacles I figured I should add the bottom set to the big drone

All the additions to your chaos ships are looking good. I was going to suggest giant eyes for the spheres, but saw you are already doing that for some of the other spheres. In the picture, some of the spheres looking shiny silver and reflective, if they are like that you may want to keep some looking like that as the final.
