Oof, that's a backed weekend. The TT has been more than enough for me anymore, and didn't even do that last year.

Yea man, we're going all this way, gotta maximize our value!

Plus, I can't wander Adepticon for more than a few hours without going out of my mind. I'm not one for demo tables, the vendors I can usually browse quickly, and there's nothing to do in Schaumburg except eat and drink....which we do liberally while gaming!...

That's fair. I mostly go to hang out with people I don't get to see otherwise and game with them. I've played more games of 8th at Adepticon then I have anywhere else.

Yea unfortunately busy lives means Adepticon is the only real chance our group gets to play any tournaments/events (since most of us help run the Sword & Brush event locally), so we tend to fill it up with max gaming. The rest of the year is just us working on fun hobby projects and the occasional pick up games (and practice for Adepticon).

WIP of the Daenarys bust. Had to repaint the skin some 5 times to get the tones to where I'm happy with them. The sculpt feels like it makes her face narrower than it actually is, so I may have to revisit the cheekbones to make her look less gaunt.

I was really interested to see how the textured cloth would come out, and seems like you nailed it. She does seem a little more blonde then silver haired right now though.

You're definitely right. I'm still trying to nail down the colors and some of the forms so there's definitely a few re-works in there.

Finito!

Daenarys of the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, The Unburnt, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Queen of Meereen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Protector of the Realm, Lady Regnant of the seven Kingdoms, Breaker of Chains and Mother of Dragons.








Had a lot of fun with this one, although I probably ended up repainting her skin 5 times and the hair at least 2 or 3 times.


Also, Adepticon update, I will be doing Nighthaunt, not Daughters of Khaine, so that changes my project plans a touch. Here's the final list of stuff I need to get done:

Knight of Shrouds on Steed
Guardian of Souls on Nightmare Lantern
30 Grimghast Reapers
10 Grimghast Reapers
12 Myrmourn Banshees

6 Tomb Blades
10 Immortals (Tesla)

Danny looks good. Are you entering it into crystal brush, or was it just for fun?

Better get to it!

For fun! I don't know what my Crystal Brush entry (or entries) will end up being; it all depends on how long finishing my army projects take and what spare time I have left for. Because half of Crystal Brush's votes are by popularity, and because I have neither Patreon or a deep online presence to blast for votes, I'm pretty much not going to win anything. So pretty much anything I enter will be purely for funsies and not-give-a-gak-if-I-win.

Thanks!

Yea, lots of bedsheets! But at least this way I get my primary AoS army painted instead of faffing around with extra stuff I don't need.

Thanks Captain Brown!

I just finished my 10 Tesla Immortals


And started my 6 Tesla Tomb Blades. These are converted in a similar vein to my Destroyers, but without feet. I just added a bunch of anti-gravitic spines to make them look like they float along.



AND I finally got these sweet new brushes in from the Artis Opus kickstarter! Really excited to try these out!

Always happy to see eevil robot progress Immortals look grand, tomb blades are both in line with the army's design and superior to the originals

The immortals look great, have you thought about how you plan to dress up the basses any more? I know that was the critic you got from one tournament. Maybe some small foliage showing life returning to the planet, like the life waking back up in the necrons.

Tomb blades look like a vast improvement over the basic model, though all your models are vast improvements over the basic ones.

I actually did revisit some of my bigger bases before the event and added like...75 scarabs spread across:



I dunno about foliage; I want it to be a dead ash-world, much like mars. So the red sands suits my needs. I might go back and revisit with some darker color tones to vary it up. And I suppose more Scarabs... I just need to get my hands on more (I tried the FW ones, I don't like em; I much prefer GW's version OR I make my own similar to what I did for my Destroyer Lord).

Progress on my Tomb Blades. All the shading has been blocked in on the white parts, and the black parts have all been basecoated. Tonight I'll be doing the highlighting on that so I can hopefully airbrush-filter it all over the weekend.




I'll also be throwing some paint on this guy for our D&D Secret Santa next weekend:



AND (I know, I have a problem) I picked up a box of tiny Cerastus Knights last night and got them built. They look so COOL! Don't know when I'll get to painting them yet tho..hopefully sometime next week.

Tomb blades look sweet with the progress you have made.

I like your bases bare, but The scarabs work nicely and very army thematic.

Your army looks awesome, very cohesive, and I like the additional scarabs you added to the base. Truly looks like an army of infinite numbers that just won’t stop!

My gift-receiver/friend plays a human Monk, and as a person, he's always a little mad in the head. I figured this would be a perfect reflection of his character and him as the PC.

Cool little guys , what size are they compared to a Necromunda fig? I just wonder if the energy shield off the Van Saar would look about right on these.

I'm actually not 100% sure. They're on 50mm bases, and the Titanicus Imperial Knights reach up to about their chest (and the Imperial Knights are about the size of a Terminator).

Finished. I forgot to take photos of them at home cuz it was late, so @Theo, here's a scale shot next to one of my friend's Necron warriors.

And I dislike taking photos at the shop, or need to get better at it. :/

Thanks for the scale shot . They are much larger than I thought they were so the shields wouldn’t work out .
