You’re pulling together some nicely grotesque minis darkkt. The masks on the last 2 are particularly horrific! Nice work

Fantastic green stuff work, that Icon bearer's teeth helmet is impressive!

I always enjoyed the older Daemon prince sculpt, the armor and battered wargear always sold the "he was once a man/marine" a little better than the newer model.

I like the work you're doing on the cultist, most players just grab a few boxes of the repeat sculpt cultist, a kit that has diminishing returns when more than 10 are on the field at once. Any plans to expand the cultist group out more once you're through with this lot?

Thanks folks, I've mostly finished the head for the third marine now - quite happy with how they all look

Cheers mate - the old sculpt really nails the chaos space marine aesthetic that first attracted me to the traitors in the first place.
More cultists? Well I dont have immediate plans - but I do have 12 more catachans sitting around.
...and 20 cadians. I guess my Ultimate plans are to expand these guys into make a Traitor guard kill team - and a traitor Veterant guardsman team. After that, I'll round out to have a couple of full squads.

So - time for a few progress shots. Its been busy at work, so progress has been a little slow...

1) aspiring champ
quite happy with this pose, feels intimidating


side view




This guy has very few major bits left to do - mainly gap filling and coming up with some details. after that its done!

2) built the Heavy Bolter dude
I wanted this fellow to be tall so it uses old terminator legs and I've bulked out the middle a bit too.


the helmet is coming along



I dropped some Old Ogre bits on this guy too - can you pick where they are?




Cultists have been slow too. I've built the body for one of my stubber guys




and I started posing another dude



drama queen

let me know what you think! I need to get a wriggle on, ive still got more models to build and convert and I've only got until the end of december!
Cheers

Sculpting is looking pretty good. I like the rhino horn, though I think the ogre vambraces on his legs make the arms look a little disproportionate--though very metal! And also very amused by the final guy's pose, reminds me of that scene from Platoon...

Ugh, hard to keep up with posting to Dakka at the moment (work has been busy sliding into the end of the year) but progress on the Traitor Astartes Kill Team has occured!

1) Icon Bearer (Master of Possession):




2) Heavy Bolter Dude:




3) Aspiring champ w power weapon



4) Two undercoated cultists:





5) Another heavy Stubber dude and friend


6)putting the brutal into brutal weapons

(Vejut - this is what the Platoon looking guy ended up with)

7) and the last two guys are off the chain



Undercoating a bunch more dudes shortly meaning i can finally start painting soon!


Cheers all

Very inspiring sculpting darkkt. Chaos is the sculptor's army, it's free license to create anything you want with the models. Particularly like the icon and the small chain holding the icon-bearers sword - little details like that really bring the model to life.

Cheers lads I’m pretty worth the results so far

Quick update today - starting to drop some paint on the cultists with this test scheme:





Undercoat laid down on these guys too:

Nice stripes kt! Tonaly (is that a word?!) the yellow and white seem close to the skin colour, maybe they could do with a border to break them up a little?

Love the chaos star on his head too! The grim flesh colour brings it out nicely

hello everybody!

havent been postin much - Ive been hanging out for a light box that took a while to get delivered. Now its here.... well the photos are a little better I guess?, I think i also need to just upgrade my phone (its a 7s lol). or perhaps I need to actually learn how to take photos.

Anyway - get your eyeballs ready for a pic dump of my completed Kill team squad!







Getting these guys finished is a great relief - they were loads of fun, but I prefer to work on smaller squads to keep things interesting.

Some single shots and close ups (not taken in light box FYI):
Icon Bearer




The lad that satrted it all. that helmet really grew on me, the smoke turned out ok and and I'm chuffed with how the icon looks too Might have a go a sculpting a few more icons tbh

Aspiring Champ





Again, the face really worked out well (and was pretty simple too) and the shoulder pad - whilst NOT exactly symetrical - still looks ok. actually quite proud of the backpack which manages to use the chaos demon heads you are supposed to stick to predator guns. (point of interest - I also used these gun heads for the feet on the icon bearer!)

And the Heavy bolter guy




originally I was worried that the hood looked too much like a psychic hood - but I think it does what I was hoping - bulks him out a little and artificially adds height
His chains and hooks fulfil a similar purpose and this guy (who started looking a little skinny) worked out in the end

Now the cultists
This guy was my test case:

and he worked out well enough for me to keep going with the others










(big fan of this guy's morning star)




the dark like betweeen his shrit and the armour is a bit overdone - although I dindt notice it until just then. Oh well.

Lookint at the close ups:


Faces = the demon muzzles and head stars ccould have been a little more consistent, but overall were ok

Very happy with the sheets of torn flesh - this skin colour worked out.



And of course - baby got back... sometimes.



My kids were grossed out by my flayed minons of darkness, so I count that as mission accomplished!

let me know what you think!

Cheers
KT

Thanks, glad you like him the Heavy Bolter dude was the only one I didnt build to a mental plan - I just made him up as I went - and I think he turned out better than expected

ShadowsAndDust wrote:I like the guy that has a face for a butt flap.

Cheers Although technically there are TWO guys with face-butt flaps. Flayed back guy wiht Chopper, and the Pale Skinned heavy bolter guy.

Gwyn chan 'r Gwyll wrote:That's a lot of caring detail for cultists, and it pays off. The backs... ugh *shivers*

Ah yes, this reaction pleases me.. I've got loads of catachan and cadian models (and bits of models) just hanging around, from an old Lost and the Damned/Traitor guard army i decided to build back in 2005/6. Happy to give some of them a use

I'm now thinking of making some actual Traitor Guard (Astra Millitarum) Kill Teams - so Traitor (Imperial) Guard Veteran guardsmen, Traitor Guard Guardsman and Traitor Guard Tempestus Scions. Lots of opportunitites to convert in all that

gobert wrote:You’re really putting the grim in to grimdark with these guys! Excellent work, and thanks to ShadowsAndDust for pointing out bumfaceflap guy

And Thanks Gobert - cultist artwork is always super grim, and I wanted these guys to really represent that. The stars on the head and the masks were from Anthony Reynold's Dark Apostle Book and the backs were really dont to cover up some gouges I left in the skin when I cut off the catachan bandoliers.

Anyway, its a few days before the discord announces another challenge, so I've headed back to some models I've kinda left in limbo - namely the PoxWalkers conversions! most My WFB Zombies to Poxwalker conversions are still getting greenstuffed, but I had 4 which were ready for (and have now received) some undercoat.

Note my (pretty ordinary) attempt at a little zenithal undercoating here - its tough to do with rattlecan tbh.

Big Mouth:




GunAxe Guy




robo-arm guy





And Swellington




A lot of this conversion work is to cover up flaws - because they were originally built as part of the lost of the damned army, they were amalgamated bits of zombie, catachan and miscellaneous - which meant they looked bloody awful. Cutting them up and regluing them as actual Zombies left patches of gouged and ruined areas. so Greenstuffing to cover it up was ncessary. However, i did have a few images in mind - obvs the actual pox walkers (which are kinda fat with tentacles) - and also the exploding zombies from Dead Island.


add in some chaos/nurgly feeling mouths and stuff and I think we have a reasonable poxwalker subsitute!
let me know what you think

Cheers mate they have some paint on them now - deliberately sloppy basecoating so I havent taken any pics recently. Its deliberately slopppy because I want to add a bit of a blotchy/mottled appearance once the paint job is actually done.
I should probably take pics anyway... sigh.

However, new Discord Challenge for the IW page and its Chaos Corruption - so converting models to chaos
This time Im planning on a Traitor Guard Kill Team - starting with a 5 model corrupted Tempestus Scion squad.

Playing with some ideas, and came up with this skull + hands helmet idea (used BlueStuff to cast skulls and hands - these are not sculpted). Let me know what you think
