Always like Snakebites but the Battletowers are a Bad Moon Toy. Dead killy too so go for it!

True, but for some reason houses on tracks just seems to go with the guys I'm working on, even though I suppose fluff wise it should be squiggoths. Here's a Kan and a snakebite battle banner. The banner, oddly, looks better in the picture than in real life. The Kan, on the other hand, looks worse - I love it to pieces but the picture doesn't do it justice. I'm on a real yellow kick right now - Averland Sunset and Seraphim Sepia - is there nothing they can't do?!

The old school Kan is an outstanding model that paints up easily and looks great. I wonder how the detail is on the plastics?

Updating all my projects today. Did a new warcaster for Cryx. I do like that a single figure can basically make a new army for warmachine. Gorshade da bastard.

An unknown figure. I was trying to paint only with inks, but didn't really do him justice.

Anna Puma and Uni Puma from Dominion Tank Police. Unofficial of course, by Denizen Miniatures in the UK, 25mm.





Nice enough figures, and on the bigger side of 25mm, but the facial detail was pretty poor. Which is fine, since I'm terrible at painting faces in general.

I always try to keep a greenstuff project on hand to use up the extra from filling gaps and other such tasks. For a while its been converting a revolutionary war toy mortar into a Nurgle Artillery Bombard....







I accidentally bought some GW technical Mournfang snow and lustrian undergrowth, and I'm going to use them to texture the thing and see if the snow can smooth out some of the greenstuff to model transitions. Some crew from various bits, a ramp, and these guys lugging stones into the mouth:

Currently hiding out from fiddly over busy resin tiny figs, so I thought I might paint some of my stuff from the (in my opinion terrible though my wife and some friends like it) board game Wrath of Ashardalon. Horrible 4th edition D&D turned into a boardgame. It comes with a pile of figures though. Most of the humaniods kind of suck, but the creatures are nice, especially the bigger ones, and they are simple and fun to paint. First we have a "Rage Bear", to go with "Wrath", "Rage Drake" and so on.



And some Grell:



I think they'll make good daemons for my Tzeentch guys.

By a weird co-incidence, my main goal in painting the bear was for Frostgrave, though it is actually a little large. : )

Painted my Yephina, female cloud giant. I am going to work on the color blending a bit more though, since pictures always show you all the places you screwed up. Also a strange little figure from my childhood and a couple of reaper figs:











I've always thought this was an amazing figure, and the standard paint job is also stunning. I wanted to do it justice, but I guess I'm just not there year. Might work on it a little more.

I'm in the process of inventorying, counting, and photographing all my miniatures. For insurance, you know.

At the moment I'm doing my Valarian 3rd and 4th Armored All Terrain Rangers, a light mech outfit based on the old Catachans, because they were my first IG army and I didn't know any better.

Pictures are taking forever to load, so I'll put them in later.

The army consists of 102 models, plus 7 heavy vehicles (Chimera size) and 8 Light Vehicles.

Vehicles:
1 Flame Tank (WWII polish Tankett with heavy flamer towing a fuel supply).
1 Vindicator
1 Leman Russ, optional turrets for standard, demolisher, and the plasma one.
1 Basilisk (cut down barrel and lowered profile - more of a tank hunter look.
4 Chimeras, one of them scratchbuilt.
2 Morter Carriers converetted from more 1/35 tankettes.
3 Sentinels
2 Devil Dogs converted from czech pz IIIs IRC.

5 Rough Riders

3 Missile launchers, 1 spare crew.
3 Autocannons
1 1/35 AT gun + 4 Crew
10 Carapace Veterans
5 Storm Troopers (mostly converted off scouts)
4 Vox operators
5 Flamers
21 Lasgun infantry
7 Meltaguns
3 Demo Charges
3 Snipers
3 Grenade Launchers
3 Power Fist officers
3 Etioles Mortant
2 Standard Bearers
8 Misc. officers
1 Heavy Bolter Sgt
1 Mechanic.

Unpainted - 1 Mechanic, 1 Etoil Mortant, 3-4 Raging heroes jailbirds, 1 aliens vasquez smart gunner.
80% painted (almost every fig has paint on it, but many don't even have inking.
98% collected- not much more needed - maybe a few more line infantry from other manufacturers, a few Warzone figs that fit in, and a 1/35 two seater motorcycle conversion I wanted to do.




Automatically Appended Next Post:
Forgot that I also wanted to do some medical types - some catachan style, one cadian that I have who fits in with the stormtroopers pretty well.

Also, gotta figure out how to get the dust off of these. They've been in a case for years, but not sealed enough I guess.

Thanks! I love looking at the more off beat stuff you see on Dakka myself.

Here's my little Nurgle detachment, plus 10 of the new plastic plague bearers. I'm going for a kind of "Not sure if fantasy or 40K" vibe, in homage to the old chaos days when they were pretty much equally playable in both.



The detachment has 28 Models, plus 1 Mortar, 1 objective marker and 4 stone bearers on loan from another armor. It includes 16 Plague Bearers, 1 "Not that great these days due to scale creep" unclean one, 1 really cute flopping seal beast of Nurgle, 2 Chaos warriors with guns, 1 Neo -Oygtah from the Wrath of Ashardalon set, one gibbering mouther, and a few other random figures looking for a home. The plague bearers are very early work of mine and will need to be repainted - I want a more interesting color scheme, with more color and grey-greens than bright greens I think. There's alot of interesting ways you can go with Nurgle I think. It seems like you could just slop on inks, but it actually is a bit tricky to get a good effect in my limited experience.


Finished the Plague Mortar. Exploring some different metals, notable the GW warplock bronze with runelord brass, which I rather like.







I do need to build a ramp so these guys can walk up and toss their stones, and possibly themselves, into it. Something like this:

9 Tech Guard, champion with storm shield. (Old Warzone Brotherhood Figures)
5 counts as Thallax from EM4's marines. Low grade plastic figures with heavy armor, jump packs and odd weapons. My paint job doesn't do them any favors though
10 Robots from Starwars
1 Light Vehicle, 34 Figures.

Working on some my first miniatures ever. When I first got into warhammer, I had a minimal budget and only a dim idea of how to proceed. The first game I set up was orks vs armymen. I needed more Orks but couldn't really afford GW stuff beyond what I had - so I turned to converting Mageknight figures using hot glue and carboard. In fact, weird as it seems, I did alot with hot glue in those days. It is not quite as ludicrous as it sounds. This guy was originally green, but I've just repainted him flesh tones to use him as a sort of small skinny Ogryn - let's call him an Ogront. I'm going to do the rest of his unit fleshtone. They used to function as a unit of Ork Commandos.



The armor is made of little pieces of cardboard and is an homage to the glory days of D&D....

Here's the whole group of, uh, lets call them Orruks. I like them better flesh color than green. They can still work for the orks, or whoever really. Lots of cardboard and hot glue, as this was before I knew about green stuff.

And now a Tyranid Hive guard. Love the mid generation nids - much better than the present, or to be honest, the old ones.

The contrast between this model the toxicrene I just got on Ebay is huge. The Hive guard is so detailed, so fun to paint. The Toxicrene literally could have been a decent 28mm model blown up to 5 times the size. The detail is minimal and soft. Of course some of that is due to plastic, but man other miniatures are much better. So much they could have done with it, but it is really a lazy sculpt. I wanted one really badly because they look great in the pictures and the one I saw on the table looked great, due to the concept, but I don't feel very motivated to do much with it.

In this case the pictures came out better than the model I think.





   
Made in us
Stealthy Warhound Titan Princeps







Not my model, but to continue my point - the Malinthrope is twice as detailed as the Toxicrene but only 1/4 the size...

To finish my point - here's my Exocrene - no where near on the same level as the Malanthrope. I didn't really do it any favors with my paint job, but still. Very poorly detailed.





In other news I've been painting the Raging Heroes Familiars, which are quite nice, but have the opposite problem - too much detail in too small a space. Better problem to have! I really need to be using magnification though.









I think they are pretty much Raging Heroes Best work.

Another nice Raging Heroes piece is Santa Delores. A couple of notes: I thought from the pictures that her head was covered by her hair (kind of like "cousin it the flying Psyker", but it appears to be cloth. I had to alter the angle of her flight support - she came in what can only be described as a "Kick line in the sky". Now she looks more like she's swooping. She came with about a dozen daggers you could stick in her, but I thought that would be crazy hard to paint, so I settled for three, though I might add in a few more. I'm really not sure about colors on the cape thing.

Santa Delores is pretty much done. I think I will add one more dagger or even two, and she needs a base obviously - but I'm not sure which army/project she goes with.





Next up spaceships I think.

Thanks! Glad to give back a little in exchange for all the awesome stuff others have shared.

Being trying to get my Battle Fleet Gothic stuff in order. First, a couple of classic ships - I'm calling them "Armored Cruisers". As a matter of policy, I'm doing all my BFG ships a size class up - so for example cruisers are serving as battleships, destroyers as cruisers, and escorts are mostly small scratch builds.





Then we have my Tyranid test paint. I had a couple of requirements - my hive fleet colors (black and yellow) had to be in, it had to look like an ancient monster of the void, and I wanted it to look like it used some photosynthesis to supply extra energy. Pretty happy with it, though I think I'll sleep on it.





All the best Tyranid BFG stuff is scratch built, so I plan on doing more that way going forward, but I did pick up a few old figures cheap.

Here is the Saphire Star, a tramp freighter configured for vapor mining from this battle Report: (Bottom of the page) https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/30/524342.page

This was the small section of Exterior shown:



I got a pack of Britannia escorts for Dystopian wars very cheaply, and I am turning them into Mechanics Standard Pattern Gamma freighters and variants. I'm going to paint it a bluish grey.





Here is a Mechanicus Bombard planetary attack variant of the Gamma Hull (well, two of them stitched together).



Now some Eldar scratch builds. I'm very happy with the builds, but the painting is really not working. I was thinking blue sails with a lightning pattern and grey/blue hulls, but it really isn't working out. I could use some suggestions!

Painted my Tyranids. Quite pleased with them, looking forward to doing more converted from bits like all the best Nid fleets.





The Eldar. The sails look like pretty decent star fields at a distance, but I thing I will work on them more. And may do some that that are black with white sails.



The Saphire Star. Again, the pictures look worse than the real thing - somehow the 3D printing texture shows up a bunch.





I like the little yellow windows looking out to space. Captures a lonely feel for me.





In other news, I am totally going to get a Dystopian wars Ottoman cruiser to convert to a rogue trader. Sadly, they come only as part of a $60 fleet.
