+ If you EVER have a friend say "I use to be into that game but not anymore", ask them what they're doing with their models. A large number of people will simply give you there models.
+Ask stores if they have bits boxes that sell bits.
+Find online trading stores and focus your trades on bits as opposed to new collectable models.
+Have a bits trading session at the start or end of your game days with your buddies.



Thanks for the advice!
I have some plans to make an Administratum Adept, time to get some reference material and start hunting for bits!

So, Major update.

I've been dark for a while because of two things. 1 I got totally wrapped up in my Knight model, and 2 I have another show coming up for my artwork.

People like PDH and Vader ruined me for the WIP updates. Seeing so many amazing, finished models posted makes me feel silly posting WIP models, but the result is that I may have long amounts of down time in between updates.

What are your thoughts? Would you prefer some occasional WIP updates alongside the finished/almost finished model updates? Let me know.

Anyway on to the pretty pictures:

House M'Manos is was one of the most ancient and tenacious of the Knight Houses along the Eastern Fringe. Established early during the colonist periods of the Dark Age of Technology, the original settler ship ended up so far off course that many tacticians during the Great Crusade were utterly shocked that the colonist ship had survived at all. But survive it did, and it thrived, landing on a lush and fertile planet located in a system within the Eastern Fringe where the only major threats to the colonies development were a few warring Ork planets that invaded often enough to keep the Nobles battle hardened, but sparsely enough to allow the world to develop into a self sustaining colony. During the Great Crusade after initial contact was made by an exploration fleet of the Iron Hands Chapter, several STC templates were brought into the fold, including a few unknown Knight variants. M'Manos welcomed both the Imperium and the Mechanicum with open arms, refusing the accept either as their overseer but rather accepting both as allies in the fight for the survival of humanity. The result was a collaborative trade of information between all parties that extended well into the 41st millennium.

This all changed when the M'Manos house found it's planet right in the path of the most recent Tyranid hive invasion. While M'Manos fought valiantly to protect both their planet and its system, all was lost until in their final hour the penitent crusade fleet of The Lamenters jumped in system and provided aid to the beleaguered nobles and their populace. An organized and bloody withdrawal followed, the result of which was a complete loss of the system, but the salvaging of several civilian transports full of artifacts from the early days of the colonization as well as several Knight transport and forge ships containing the last nobles and Knight Suits from a once valiant and ascendant household.

Upon the loss of their system all of the surviving Knight's M'Manos swore to take on the collective mantel of Freeblade as they no longer had a house to call their own. They also swore fealty to the Lamenters Chapter for the timely rescue and have followed them willingly into battle since. Upon sitting in common counsel it was also decided that the entire Knight Household would refuse to polish the brass trim of their Knight Suits as it was smelted upon their homeworld, as well as a collective refusal to repaint the house symbol on their armor. This would be their act of morning their loss. Never again would they shine or repaint the symbols of their homeworld, rather they would bare them in a kind of quiet shame, the patina and scratched paint acting like their mourning shroud for all to see.


My first knight in the M'Manos house. I love this model. It was an absolute joy, and worth every penny I spent on it. I would say at this point the model is 90% percent finished. I may stop and give it a rest. I want to weather it with graphite and oils a bit at some point but I need a break on him to work on some =I= models:











So the heraldry on the shield is my family's heraldry altered slightly for the format of the shield itself. One thing about this project is that I got sucked into the rabbit hole of inkjet decals, so I spent countless man hours experimenting with my own custom decals for this model. This shield was the fifth try.

Please note that I know there are several seems of the decals showing on this model. I will be addressing these as I move forward, but they drive me nuts I can't lie. The model isn't varnished yet, so I hope this will help blend the decals. When it's all said and done I am a big fan of the Knights Decal sheet. I wish I could have gotten the custom one but I didn't realize it was going to go OOP and I missed my chance.

More images:



Bear skull is custom too.





I was really happy with the pose I came up with. A kind of "challenge" pose. It required some altering of parts but all and all I think it reads well.





The guns on the Knight are magnetized so I can switch them back and forth.

Now on to the base. The base was a custom design I laid out on the computer, then I laser engraved it onto an acrylic base so that I had fine detail without the need of gluing a ton of parts. I then flocked it, added the wall and casualty and decided to treat the entire base as an experiment in painting with a more loose style. I wanted to get some Blanche influence to the extreme, and I used the base as a chance to experiment with weathering, detail, blood effects, and terrain detailing:



Poor guy, who killed him, the Knight or the enemy???





Notice the paper leaflet? I used tinfoil to create this addition then I painted it up, applied a transfer, hit it with washed and walked away.



The thing I am the most happy about with the base is the blood effects. They look so insanely real that I can't complain.

Anyway I hope you enjoy, the newest addition to my ramshackle fleet of Imperial models. I look forward to your feedback, and I welcome any constructive criticism.

Totally. That's what I figured you were talking about.

I'm considering this model game ready at this point because I need a break from it after a few months of working on it.

When I finish it up I am going to do some weathering with oil paints on the entire model as well as go in with a soft graphite pencil to add actual chips to sections of the entire model.

It's about three or four more nights of dedicated painting to get it where I want it to be 100%. I hope to have him finished for a painting competition in April.

But I agree that without some torn up and chipped paint it does look a bit odd as it stands now.

I just read through your thread. I love all the fluff of your army.

I'm so glad that you ended up adding the yellow trim to the shoulder pads. I think it makes such a big difference to the visual appeal of the model.

Your knight is beautiful! I also really like the base you made. The laser work on the acrylic seems fantastic and that blood splatter is just great. I don't have a knight yet but I am dying to get my hands on one. I am also digging the idea of knight army.

Forgive me now! Tomorrow I may no longer feel guilty...

EyeamRai:

I'm sorry I missed your post. Thank you for your thoughts I really do appreciate you taking the time to look and see what I'm up to. My modeling community for most of my life has existed online so having feedback is always much appreciated.

And on that note, here's an update:

Enforcer Drax is the sole survivor of the infamous (or famous for those in power) Red Skulls Enforcement Platoon from the lost Hive World of Salus Prime. At its peek of production Salus Prime was designated as a Beta Grade Hive World by the Administratum for the purposes of the Imperial Tithe. While not as glorious as some of its sector neighbors in its production, Solus was rich in ferus metal alloys that were easy to smith and mill. The resulting industry produced a majority of the sectors shipping and storage containers for the Imperial shipping and warfare efforts. This often forgotten necessity of the the Imperial machine had provided well for racial caste of "high minders" who had spent the last three thousand years establishing complete control over the distribution of wealth and welfare to the planets 23 billion occupants. When the social uprising in response to their greed eventually started it was in response to a 1/3 reduction on the already meager family bread rations.

During the multi decade long rebellion that followed several factions of well armed and amazingly skilled fighters saw play on the urban battlefields of Salus Prime's multiple hive "stacks". One such faction was the Imperial backed (supported by the ruling Caste holding Imperial Authority) Adeptus Arbites Enforcement Platoon 7, also known as the 'Red Skulls'. This Platoon was made up of several crowd control/riot control/foot patrol squads spread across the lower portions of "Stack Alpha. Platoon 7 was often designated as a first responder unit to every conflict in Stack Alpha that bordered or involved major Imperial assets. After two years of intense street fighting the platoon learned the populace had named them the "Red Skulls" because their deployment meant any civilian in contact was sure to walk away with at least a bloody gash to the head. The commanders at the time embraced this and adopted a red skull logo for the unit. This skull, while set agains the stark white of their armor imposed a fearsome site on the urban battlefield.

After the Salus Rebellion had devolved into a full Heretical uprising the recently appointed Inquisitor Gahvriel Seth and his staff were deployed alongside units of the 15th Mechanized Tarton Brigade to quash the ongoing problems and bring Salus back into the fold of the Imperium. The result was a brutal and punishing campaign that saw millions upon millions dead as well as the complete destruction of the Imperial infrastructure on planet. Salus has yet to recover, and while declared "free of taint" it will be many centuries before the remaining populace is able to return to full production of the smelting facilities. At the end young Seth's adventures he found himself in the upper levels of Stack Alpha guarded by a large selection of Tarton infantry and local Red Skull enforcers. While it may have taken several years for Seth to realize the extent Salus' corruption it was only after stumbling upon the son of the Planetary Governor in copulation with multiple abominations that this realization took root. After the extent of the heresy became blatantly clear Seth finalized his purge by destroying every member of the planet's ruling Caste. While his remaining allies were few in number Seth was able to inspire a wrath unlike anything the ruling caste had ever seen and in the end Salus was once again declared as part of the Imperium...

As the flames settled the only "local" survivor of Seth's retinue was Enforcer#39 Drax.

Upon conclusion of the conflict Seth declared Drax as "Touched By He On Earth" and used his authority to sequester him into his staff. Drax has shown no anger toward his current orders and on the contrary he has embraced his new mission and continued to serve with honor in the Emperors name. While he is mostly quiet on the battlefield when Drax is no fighting he has shown a chipper attitude towards his colleagues and he's even been known to spend a night joking


Damn, that was long. And fun.

Anyway onto the pictures:







This guy was an absolute blast to paint and I'm really happy as he will be a great addition to any I28 games I may start, and as a great Death Cultist for 40k army.

Automatically Appended Next Post:
I've got a lot of projects here and there going on, a few miniatures that are getting some paint and also of course a ton of conversions that are in various stages.

I am still on the fence with the Seth model and I am just waiting for the right moment of inspiration to push through and finish him. I'm filling my desired hobby time by building any model I have that comes to mind or projects that I've put off. Miniatures that are in the pipeline or are pieced out in bits sitting in their own project bins are: two psykers, a familiar, a sister repentia, a techno gun fighter, and several. One of those models was this crusader that I finally buckled down on and got him fleshed out last night. He'll need one more day with some putty, base work, and I'm thinking a bit more work on the shield but here you go:









A friend of mine gave me this Inquisitor model and when I got my hands on it I realized how perfect it was as a sculpt for a Crusader. It's basically the same armor as a Crusader model wears but with a ton more detail and I loved the open pose. It screamed to me to be turned into a crusader. The bits I used are pretty obvious, but the shield saw a dabble in trying to laser cut directly onto GW plastic bits. It worked for this but I don't think I'll be playing around too much with it in the future.

Thoughts, comments, and even constructive criticism are greatly appreciated you guys are a large part of my inspiration for my work so I appreciate any insights you may have.

I'm thinking I'm going to start posting more WIP posts to keep you all up to date on my meanderings...

Have a great night.

I'm not 100% happy with my current photo set up. I think the light I am photographing under is too harsh to capture the subtle blending I do and it tends to blow out the layers of paint, but photographing miniatures is almost as complicated as painted them.

Anyway, not sure if I'm getting much traffic but I can't help but share my slow and steady progress.

I just had to paint this guy. I came across a boat load of old Necro figures and this guy was one of them. He's been a joy to paint. After 6 years working in a bar full of the worst bikers and scum you can imagine, his color pallet just started to fit into place. The stained white shirt, army pants, denim jacket. I picture him being a conscript into Seth's cannon fodder. Someone noticed that the local at the bar had a guard issue bionic targeter and rumor had it he also had a Imperial issue plasma pistol at his hab unit... In order to repent for his sins of theft this man has been sentenced to fight out the length of Seth's current campaign or die a heretic with his head added to local Heretic Dump. Needless to say he pulled out the weapon he pulled off his dead Commissar's body and reported for duty in the morning:







I'll admit I'm not happy with the photos. Everything looks smoother in real life but under the harsh studio/camera lights this guy looks looser then he is in person, but I want to get an update out there to keep this plog alive.

I used this model to experiment a lot with tattoos which I am very happy with, as well as multiple colors on the same part of a model to create depth. The "tightey whitey" t-shirt was a blast to paint as were the tattoos.

Loving the Underhive Scum (that's what his model is known as in case you didn't know, apologises if you did). The colours work really, really well and I think the tattoos have a really natural faded look. You have really bought this guy to life.

On the nature of photos it can be really hard to get good photos. I have simply given up. I have a few friends who are professional photographers and graphic artists and their photo setups when they play with my models is spectacular in its complexity. What sort of camera gear and lighting do you have?

On the side of blog traffic don't let a lack of replies get you down. Believe me more people look at my work than stop to comment. But the blog is my motivation not the conversation. Keep up the really fantastic work and people will eventually stop by to say hello.

Look forward to your next model.

Maybe try some opaque paper or better yet plastic in front of your lights to act as a diffuser?

In regards to color tattoos (coming from someone who is almost covered half his body with them) don't mix and match color and black tattoos, it gives the impression of a half finished job. Unless of course that is what you are after......

I'm currently trying to flesh out an Accolyte unit for Seth's force that will consist of Crusaders, Death Cultists, and a single Preacher.

In the fluff for "Death Cultists" originally presented in the Inquisitor rule book it states that these individuals are drawn from warrior cultures that perfect and emulate killing. It states that the cultists themselves are diverse in both nature and practice, the only thing that unites them is there ability to kill effectively.

So I'm designing a range of random characters that can fit this squad, each with their own background. Some of them are stock models, others are kit based.

Here is my most recent one, and I need your feedback:









My entire vision for this guy is he is part of an elite "death cult" culture that developed within a constant state of warfare on an Imperial planet. He's trained by his own experiences, and is the definition of "Darwinian". The only school of thought he subscribes to, despite the righteous cause of the conflict he was part of, is supremacy in combat and survival. He enjoys fighting, and even more so winning.

When he was still aligned with the movement he was fighting for, he was part of an elite group of killers that were deployed to take on the hardest targets in a war of attrition. His sense of competition was born in this group, and many an Inquisitor when looking at the distinct fighting styles, subculture, and rituals of the unit would define the unit as a "death cult".

My question for all of you:

What should I arm this guy with in his right hand? I am not opposed to cutting and slashing the arm completely. I'm happy with the rest of the conversion, I want to keep right shoulder pad, but I am totally open for his arm.

I need help with his second weapon!

What would you give him????

Well I think the death cultists rules wise have power swords don't they? So since he has a more utility approach to fighting and a who cares as long as I am alive and winning I would vote for a solid large blade a bit like the large catachan knife that could double as a general gutting, skinning, beheading knife.

My two cents.

That Knight is pretty sweet, especially the base. I am surprised that we don't see more converted knights though… Is it because the base model is so good, or is it intimidating I wonder?

Archer,

I think I am going for a big arse knife! I'm glad we agree.

Regarding the rules, this entire unit is going to be a bit difficult to play in my group. The rules for Death Cultists wargear are weird: Two Power Swords... OK... I get it. No shooting attacks, two weapons that ignore saves. That's great, but calling them "swords" limited me on the WYSIWYG front as that's totally friggen boring for a unit.

My "Death Cultists" are going to be all of the CCW models I convert for my =I= force that don't have rules under the new codex. I figure "fluff" wise they're all close combat/close quarters fighters.

I'm going to kind of use the unit as a gaming barometer. My army is a fluff based army, and when I introduce this unit to a player if they take issue with it I'll know it's not a gaming community I want to be a part of.

If you game a lot do you come up against WYSIWYG fanatics ? I'm always upfront about my units, and if I am able to model accurately to the wargear I do it.

Kestral:

Thanks for your thoughts on my Knight. He was an absolute joy to paint, and when I first got him I was dreading the price, but when I finished the model he was worth every penny.

Occasionally there are models that need no conversion, the Knight is one of them.

My only complaint with the kit is the legs are really static.

I am very much a fluff based gamer my self (so often get comments that my armies are "soft") so I personally have no problems with people having cool ideas and models. Obviously I try to be WYSIWYG with my models so a Lascannon is a lascannon.

But in the case of Inquisition warband's if someone wanted to drop a power sword of a death cultist because they wanted a pistol then I wouldn't give a damn, especially if they look as cool as your guys do. Obviously if it was an empty base "representing something a little unusual I would be a little less interested.

So I would just keep hunting until you find some like minded gamers so everyone can have some fun.

Agreed with the above. It's not like the weapons on DCA can ever be anything other than the listed Power Swords (as they have no options). At the end of the day, anyone that causes issues with a unit like yours is probably not anyone worth playing.

Thanks guys for your thoughts on the weapons. I agree that if the option has no other weapon choice all the player should be required to do is provide a unit designation and indicate to their opponent what the models represent.

Thanks for your thoughts.

So I did some pretty extensive work on this guy's weapon tonight. It may not look like it but this was an entire nights work and the end result was that his right arm consists of four different plastic bits spanning four different ranges of models.

I was torn up about what knife to pick, but I think the Rogue Trader Beakie "bayonet" was a perfect fit for him. I spent a lot of time trying to find the right "handle" for this blade.

Sorry for the rough photo but I wanted to show some progress:



Thoughts, suggestions, and criticism are always welcome.

Thank you for looking.

I really like the blade, especially how it is sweeping forward. Makes it look very unique, almost a signature weapon. Is the handle the ammunition "clip" from an Eldar Shuriken Catapult?

I like the length of the handle as well, it gives the idea that it could potentially be used as a two handed sword in a pinch, looks great so far.
