CB - Thanks for stopping by, and thank you.

Yorkright - Cheers. The powerfist was attached to a poxwalker arm many moons ago, then just sat around waiting for someone who needed it. And that someone eventually turned up.



Still need to finish the termie for the challenge, but did get round to actually finishing of the two beasts. Yes, you read that right...finished models. No, I am not a pod person, it really is me.
Unfortunately I couldn't find my point and click, so phone photos - depth of field is very poor (and I figured puling out my nikon and macro lens would be overkill, that's some hefty sized files).


So, we have Aardslaak and Akkerslaak, the bile vipers - beasts of nurgle.








"Aardslaak is 350 years old, 18 and a half feet long, has red eyes and green armour, likes playing on the beach with infantry and cosy nights in by the acid baths, enjoys digesting entire libraries, and one day wants to start a home for orphaned nuglings."










"Akkerslaak is 290 years old, 18 feet long, has red eyes and yellow armour, says his best attribute is his sense of humour, and wants to work in hospitals."











*Makes note to find camera and lightbox for better pictures, pesky grotlings are probably trying to make a submarine out of it.

I want to see that sub model now.......

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.

Llama - It'll be at the bottom of the marina by now. Doesn't matter how long they've lived here, without supervision they always forget to fully waterproof things....

CB - Then they are just as intended Thanks.


Couldn't find my compact, but my bridge canon shoots macro okay, so got some better shots of the bile vipers.















And finished off the skullhead termie - or thought I had. Turns out the base needs tidying up, so that's a quick task for later. Then get some final pics, but these are good for now:











And a quick gribbly idea...




Want some sort of serpentine 'body' for this one, not sure this is the one though.

Thanks for popping in, mind the slime on the way out.

Viterbi - Well, they're working then Cheers!


And actually finished now (apologies not really that different from above, but it's actually finished - that's rare enough on this thread to warrant a bit of spamming I feel








Some of the verdigris is a bit meh, and the various metals could do with a bit more differentiation, but pretty happy with it, especially considering where it was just after starting - that magnifying headset is proving very useful.



Finished putting together the second blight drone (well, there's one bit to be added at the end) and started putting some colour down.





He's a little bigger than the first (which still needs paint finishing..obviously), so the third will be a little smaller - mainly because I'm left with 4 small wings Need to figure out what bits I don't have so I can figure out a supply drop to get me through...

I have started the third, but he's only in bits at the moment, so no pics just yet - and I'm not sure if he's right yet either - it's a bit of a change form the first two, whic isn't a bad thing, jus not sure if I want the 3 to be similar builds or not.


And found the predator laying around, so pushing on with the paint on that too..




Stay safe out there...or rather..in there...

Arakasi - Many thanks!

Kernel - Thank you!

graven - Cheers, I'm eyeing up various vehicle parts myself, several ideas floating around - as usual


Some small touches added to the maleficent seven, the predator and the newer blight drone, bu nothing worth posting yet.


Did start toying with some gribblies though.









Couple of servitor types. First one needs some tentacles either side of his head, and something on his back - I have plans for another version with the same body but not the legs, so figuring out who gets what. Second one may not get a 'human' head, and still figuring out best place for some manipulators - may replace the head, may come out the shell, may get attached to a tail mechandrite.





Start of another beast of nurgle, this one slightly smaller than the bile vipers, with a bigger one planned - although the bigger one might become a mount? Still going through heads for this one, not satisfied with any I've found so far - I like the idea of a circular head, also tried a smaller tau drone, but it just doesn't click.


And risked a delve in the room of shame to find something for this month's Dakka panting challenge - [/url]https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/786953.page#10759720[url]

Toyed with the idea of doing something with the old Sleazy Rider mini:



Fun, but not sure I feel like building a bike at the moment...


So then maybe these three:



Forming part of the Filth Columnists for The Scourge. Although I'm very tempted by just the middle one...



...especially if I can dig out his rifle toting brother....



...who I should have multiple copies of somewhere.

If I can do the pair together that works for me.

graven - Indeed he is, loved all these champions when the came out, and still do. First one is my favourite - had an 'oh yes moment when I first tried a leg. Second one needs more work, and probably not that head - I just had an image of the cryx body with four legs, so made that, haven't figure the next part out yet

Doc - Thanking you sir!

Arakasi - Still is

CB - Then they are doing their job

youwashock - They are...see below.


So, girding my loins I risked sanity once more by entering the room of shame, searching for the missing jezzail bearers. Distractions caught my eye a multitude of times, and some even came back with me for further investigation. I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack bikes on fire near the squat homeworld, egg walkers glittering in the darkness near the cadian gate.... space marines trying to emulate Iwo Jima, cyborks trying to gain my attention with varying prosthetics, snotlings pumping wagons, resin rogue troopers battling daleks, bags of loot from various Salutes....you get the picture.

But the missing champs could not be found. he chaos gods of lost projects taunted me sorely by letting me find a jezzail arm that I had clipped from one of them, but that was all.

I have to say I was tempted by some of the distractions...a snotling pump wagon or the egg-walker sentinel especially. But I'd already decided in my heart that I anted to do the pair of champions, so the logical... ... thing was to strip the one I had in hand.

My go-to stripper is Big Lindsey ...err, no...Fairy Power Spray - metals, plastics, acrylics, enamels, no problem, but does unbind superglue and sometimes greenstuff. Has to be the original formula, the one they introduced a few years back is no good. But I'm out - haven't stripped a mini in many years, and current situation makes me wonder how easy it will be to find. Same goes for other potential strippers. So what could I possibly use around the home?

Well, hand sanitiser - high alcohol content, and masters brush cleaner? Maybe. A quick scrub with soap an water and toothbrush first - just to start the process, give the solvents somewhere to start. Squeezed some sanitiser onto the mini and gave it a good scrub, then squeezed on some more and wrapped it in a dettol wipe (didn't have a suitable container to hand ), left it for a few hours. Came back and gave it a scrub - job had started. Moved onto the brush cleaner - lathered it on, gave it a good scrub, lathered some more on, left it for a couple more hours. Another scrub, another lather and scrub, then soapy water scrub, and a pretty good job. A few bits left in crevices, but I've given it another lather to sit in overnight, reckon it'll be mint after that.



Not bad for the tools I had I think.

Some minor work to consider - reposing the arm on scythe bro, possibly adding a tube from the hood and a canister on his back, jezzail bro probably losing the knife. I'm thinking black robes fading to green, corroded metal shoulder pads, not got any further.


As mentioned, pulled out various bits that caught my eye, and am now also considering re-visiting some old traitor guard and my old Crusaders Penitent marines (old school - metals and RTB01, with old school rhino variants) for repainting...


Bit more progress on the blight drone...










And with it's sibling..




Still no real idea what to do with the wings...

Arakasi - Not at all attached to be honest, but would still have rather had a fresh mini to start with

youwashock - Busy playing with replacement legs for the egg-walker today

graven - Gross is good Those middle aisles have some good stuff sometimes My shopping trip was planned for local, didn't fancy having to go queue at the supermarket just to add dettol to my list - plus it's not my favourite substance to work with in my cramped boat.



So, cleaned up the two minis, removed the knife from jezzail bro, thinking what to do with that hand now - slight repose of scythe bro's hand, thinking on what to do with the face area.


Also, broke into the stash of Conquest magazines that had been building up without me opening them So lots of sprues to play with - keeping the paints sealed for now - I suspect I might really appreciate a paint drop in a few weeks or so....


These two guys now looking for bases..








Still need some tidying, but close enough to get them based up and ready.


And think I'm calling it done on the predator...




Obviously need to attach the sponson guns, and then there's a couple of spots that need another wash and possibly some weathering powders. Possibly a few bits of wear that could be highlighted still, but I'm happy enough - they can be touched up later if I feel like it.


Cheers all!

Viterbi - Thanks, I think it only took a year and a bit - that's record time around these parts

Llama - No, that never ends well. As soon as I turn my back they just cover everything in illiterate graffiti about the size of various warboss' prosthetics.... I think it's more down to the fact that eventually things come to an end, after all, the termie is the only one that I've started this year


So, obviously the close ups show me so much that needs work, but calling it complete.









Incessant Affliction, predator belonging to The Scourge. The original chassis was purchased from a Dark Mechanicus forgeworld around three millennia ago and further modified by the warband's tek-wraiths. Corruption has set in, but the machine-spirit is not read for full possession just yet, and still requires a driver and gunner.

Speaking of tek-wraiths, got some better pics of them...






Mainly so I could create a gallery with finished pics of The Scourge...I'll also start a thread in the showcase forum for them, with hopefully some added fluff (still working some of it out)

Hopefully the first seven traitor guard should be finished tomorrow.


And whilst taking new pics, realised that the graven-walkers weren't actually finished, so gave them a bit of a touch-up.








Not the best work on the cloth etc, but hopefully you're distracted by the shin pus and blood..


Thanks for stopping by, wash your hands on the way out....
