Eyy, why settle for starting when you can paint the whole group in one go instead!

Rise, horrors of the Old Night! Death to the False Emperor, for Terra belongs to the proper philosopher kings!

Whole gang, vibin':



The Three Kings:

















Particularily happy with the psi-sword of the last fella.

Dancer of the Apocalypse:






Champion of the Lost:







Pew-Pew XIII:





Atomic Blyat:





Icon of Sin:




I'm very happy with how they tuned out, as well as always loving working with reds. The aesthetic chaos of the Unification theme is... tempting. Though this is only a off-the-cuff side project, it might lure me to continue under its siren song. After all, representing the Thunder Legions with counts-as Custodes teams wouldn't take more than a handful of models...

Thanks Boss

The aim was to have a cohesive group of individuals, wretched and rag-tag as they are, so hopefully they come across like that.

Surprisingly swift, yeah. Pigments help in that regard, it's easy to paint with bigger strokes when it's gonna get messy anyway

Very cool, very grimdark. I like how all of them feel super dynamic, while each has their own momentum or let's say 'temperament'.

Thanks!

Temperament seems like a good descriptor, with some of these characters running blithely around like madmen (Champ), some lost in their own world (Dancer) or even expressing haughty disdain for the mere thought of being in danger (the King with a flamer) etc. After all, they are chaotic individuals closer to drug-filled ravers than a military unit with a plan

Was asked to take a few pics in terrain as well, so why not. I don't (yet...) have another Unification team, so enjoy some Crusade era imagery instead as the XIV legion runs into trouble while cleansing a non-Imperial human civilisation.

Wow, that gang is on fire... hopefully after someone told some battle sisters they are walking around freely (although that doesn't match period-wise, does it? ). Great work in conversion as well as painting!

Thanks! Can't claim the honor for the club's excellent terrain here, but it's damn fun to use, that's for sure.

Getting pretty close to wrapping up 2021's hobby time, what with the holiday retreats creeping closer and away from the painting station.

The first feeling would be that I didn't achieve much on the hobby front this year, given half of it was spent in the Defence Forces, but let's tally what did get done. Plenty of gaming happened, though, which is always a plus (especially the very fun Titanicus mega-battle).

Built but unpainted:

- 9 Possessed librarius aspirants (40k)
- Lord of Virulence (40k)
- 2 Bloat Drones (40k)


Finished works:

- 4 Lightning fighters (AI / Epic)
- 2 Thanatars (Epic)
- 1 Vulturax (Epic)
- 10 squads of technothralls (Epic)
- 4 squads of Thallaxii (Epic)
- 7 groups of techpriests (Epic)
- Flagellum Dei, Reaver (Titanicus)
- Delictor Profectuum, Warlord (Titanicus)

- Captain-Commander Erasmus (40k)
- 4 Deathshrouds (40k)
- 18 Terminators (40k)
- Fourth Horseman, Falchion superheavy (40k)
- 10 Terminators, repaint (40k)
- 20 Tacticals, repaint (40k)
- 2 Contemptor Dreadnoughts, repaint (40k)
- Primus Medicae, repaint (40k)
- Plaguecaster (40k)
- Possessed librarius aspirant (40k)

- 8 technobarbarians (Kill Team)

- Royal Guard of Alahan (Confrontation)

Finished models: 98, more than I'd have thought if not exactly large numbers in these circles.

So I got another Epic army (Mechanicum) in working order, brought the older elements of the Echoes up to current standards while adding too many terminators in their ranks (again...), started an Instagram account (@sherrypiexiv) and expanded into Kill Team with a drive into Unification Wars territory that is bound to continue in 2022 with a handful of other such teams as well. At least some Thunder Legion troops with warriors and Null-Maidens, inbred hillbilly cannibals and some robotic monstrosities are already bubbling in my mind, so who knows how that'll shape up!

...so close to a hundred... maybe there is still time to paint a couple of things...

Gee, fine, I had to paint a couple more to bring the tally into a nice and round 100

Testing out some light OSL work and shading flesh purple with a couple more failed librarius aspirants. I think the purple offers some real nice avenues to get better at, especially with such tortured and beat up flesh.

in the computer?

Exemplary work on the technobarbarians Sherrypie. I like the metals, the cool extreme highlights on black really make them pop against the dominant reds. The skin is also excellent - the browns and orange sepia tones lend a sense of antiquity, but the pallid highlights brings it back to looking unnatural and disturbing. Perfect for an ancient period of 40k history.

The fleshy mutations on the Marines are also so great. Reminds me of The Thing.

Thank you, Thumpingbear!

The metals are a real learning area, I like the high contrast but know that I should try to incorporate more mid-tones in them to make the effect more realistic without sacrificing the striking feel. Painting skin, on the other hand, is just fun. Need to do more of that

Happy 2022, let's hope it'll be better than the previous bastard!

Opening this year on the Sherp-o-Station, we've got more technobarbarians coming right up. Can't have a proper struggle for the temporal mastery of a rad-blasted waste without a couple of teams at hand, eh? So to complement the more majestic witches of Ursh, the second group here will be more like a family of greasy rednecks inviting you to the barbeque party. You'll be the main course, of course.

Cheers. This crew is mostly based on Corpse Grinders, Arco-Flagellants, Kataphron and Electro-Priest parts with occasional bits from orks, spawns, marines and Afrika Korps jammed in there

I started out intending to use more Electro-Priests, but those buggers turned out to be too big for 25 mm bases (the team is ruleswise a GeneCult) and this ended up more rube-ish than technological body horror. But hey, now I've got the machine boyos waiting for the third team when my Unmade bits arrive... Body horror town, 'ere we come!

That is probably wise, violent cannibals aren't exactly the nicest folk even on the best of days.

And 'ere we go with the Machine Madness. Enter the Circuit of holy madmen from the Church of the Insatiable Spark, ready and willing to beat some proper grace and divine mercy to the fair folks of the blasted wastelands. Ungrateful bastards, the whole lot, won't even flagellate themselves to bits nor flay themselves bare and skinless for the heavens to judge. Tsk, tsk.

Gameplaywise this octet will work as Harlequins in Kill Team, zipping all over the place like lightning, heedless of pesky terrain while somersaulting from one victim to the next with their esoteric disruption field weaponry.
