Nice to see you're taking time to convert the INTERIOR of a Rhino... That's great !!!

(Too much time for me sadly... Though I'd love to do that someday )

Hey man! Awesome stuff. Do you have an update on what you did with the buzz saw? Very curious to see that one.


Getting around to it. Sorry it's taking me awhile. It's in the works though and out on my table for assembly with my havocs, so I should be taking some pics of it soon and I'll get them posted up.

Still minor stuff, unfortunately. With the holiday approaching and the crazy weekend that will follow (I work retail), I don't know how much I'll get done this week, but I do plan to get some paint out. I have to work on my Junk Pile so that needs some attention. I also would like to paint a few shoulder pads for The Everliving for practice. I'll share what I can.

In the mean time, here is how my rhino is looking for now:



No where near finished, but it's starting to really take shape. Not sure if I want to leave the non-combi hatch low profile like it is in this pic or if I want to add the extra raised ring that the hatch is intended to sit on.


Here is the very WiP on my Havoc Champion. He likes to cut things.



He is made using these bits:

Shaved down khorne beserker helmet (sorry bunny ears )
CSM chest torso.
Guitar string tube
Space Wolf belly plate with icons removed
Chains,
Raptor Shoulder Pad
Possessed Shoulder Pad
Sanguinary Legs
Chaos Space Marine Skulls from spikes
Raptor arms
Raptor Chainswords
Raptor Jump Pack


Let me hear what you think! I would be happy to show you guys at least something with paint on it this week. Even if it is just some shoulder pads. So, hopefully I'll get something done. Progress is progress, I suppose.


EDIT: I missed you, Yggs! Thanks for commenting! Glad it meets your approval

Great new A-Champion !

The pose, with the SG legs, is impressive, and he looks both eager to kill & scanning for target with the cool efficiency of a killer...

Should look awesome in the end !

I'm not a fan of the chains or the weapons on the groin but otherwise I love the look.

Listen, my children, as I pass onto you the truth behind Willy Wonka and his factory. For every wonka bar ever created in existance, Mr. Wonka sacraficed a single Oompa Loompa to the god of chocolate, Hearshys. Then, he drank the blood of the fallen orange men because he fed them a constant supply of sugary chocolate so they all became diabetic and had creamy, sweet-tasting blood that willy could put into each and every Wonka bar. That is the REAL story behind willy wonka's Slaughter House!

Thanks guys!

@Empchild Thanks and I can feel you on those. The chains are a little OTT, but I think they may tie in better once more chain is added to him and throughout the squad. I don't think they'll pop out quite as much.

I appreciate the opinions!

I haven't been here in a while, you've been busy.

I like your list. It will take a few games to tweak in order to fit how you want to play it, but you decent balance. I've never played Fast Attack anything and cannot remember the last time I took Terminators.

I'm torn on how to manage Flyers. I know Flakk missiles aren't the best punch and are expensive, but I'm also not going to give in to the GW arms race and buy a flyer. And if I ever did you can be sure it wouldn't be that hossed-up WFB PokeMon thing. I haven't had a terrible 'game-changing' moment involving Flyers so for now I'm going to stay the course and stick w/ my ML Flakk.

Great choice on that Havoc Launcher! Again, not a terribly popular vehicle upgrade from what I have seen, but I really like using them. Great range, ST 5, Blast, and Twin Linked. Not great at killing Marines (AP 5) but it wounds on a 3+ and every time you force a save is good. Having 3 Rhinos with Havoc ML makes for a good turn of shooting, especially if you are shooting at fleshy things 'Nidz and Guardsmen. *SPLAT*

I'm really focused on my 1,500 pt list right now. I'll share it with you if you'd like.

Yeah definitely, Skalk!

I don't know what I was thinking. I had planned to get a lot of stuff painted while baby sitting my 7 week old son. Let's just say I didn't get around to what I had planned on finishing. In the four hours I had to "paint," I managed to get one half-assed attempt on a shoulder pad.

To my credit, I haven't painted anything in months and this was a simple test performed while heavily distracted.

APOLOGIES FOR THE BLURRINESS




Clearly the icon needs less "feathers" as it comes off blotchy and crowded. This will also help when it's applied to a CSM shoulder pad, since they tend to have the little spikes and arrows cutting into the frame. The eye needs to be bigger and the PA color is a little too bright. That being said, I like the top half of the icon. The tallest feathers and the head/beak look good to me, but the bottom half of the icon is rubbish.

Nothing wrong with some more practice.
practice. practice. practice.

I'm liking the shoulder pad a lot. And I kind of like the "blotchy and crowded" design, myself. Looks sinister and chaotic. (I agree that bigger eyes, and perhaps less round, more pointed-oval, would improve the look.) Just my opinion, of course.

Well I agree with your opinion, tinfoil.
The eye definitely needs a more oval like shape and pointed sides to help define it. I don't mind the busyness of the shoulder pad so much as I think I just need a little more practice to make the bird look better.
Glad you like it. I'm fairly pleased with it overall.

Love the use of a Chaos Shield as a Rhino Hatch.

Actually, LeadLegion, that is a rhino hatch. I think GW uses the same initial mold, as it is identical to a marauder (I think) shield I've seen. On my rhino it doesn't have the exterior ring around the hatch, which makes the whole hatch look a little smaller.


Not too much to report, unfortunately. I've been ever so slowly poking at my raptors, rhino, and junk pile. I managed to get some very minimal work done on the pile, but I am beginning to worry that the child and wife may prevent me from getting it done on time. I'll post pics as soon as I can take some.

I didn't forget about you, Malika2! I'll get those pics up soon.

Wow, 7 weeks? If you had asked I'd have said maybe 3. I'm losing track of time.

Nice design on the pauldron.

Time is flying since he came along. Damn near impossible to get ANYTHING done, let alone, hobby stuff. I'm off tomorrow, but most likely I'll be catching up on RL stuff like bills and cleaning... Oh boy!

I would like to at least assemble my pile of junk. I have the bits and the layout all configured. Photos have been taken, so I know where everything goes. If I get it glued together, I can prime it. That would mean some actual progress to me. I feel that I may actually get more done with the baby around if I'm painting instead of modelling. I think applying base coats and such would be a little easier to start and stop than trying to facet chain to a chaos marine. We'll see. I would hate to no-show or have to drop out of the comp, but as I said, we'll see.

That was a little bit of a downer, so I'll leave you with a happy note:

The Ruinous Powers love you just the way you are.

Aww. That's the nicest thing anyone has said to me all week.

As for the junk pile, even if you don't finish you can still submit. You'll take a hit on the painting aspect but the bitz and the build still count for judging. Don't forget your free +5 points if you send me an 'action shot' of you picking up a random hunk of junk off a sidewalk or somehting like that. In the end what's really important (to me anyway) is that everyone that entered winds up with a new piece of scenery that they will enjoy on their tabletop.

Have a few new things to take pics of, but may be on a short break due to the fact that I bought a house. Plus side of that is that it comes with some studio space for me to work in without lugging all my nerdery in and out of closets. Hope to post some pics and get some painting time in over the holidays.

Everybody be safe this holiday season!

Same to you! Hope you had a great holiday. Excited to finish up my raptors and get pics of that saw. I will say, it broke in two places as it is apparently fairly fragile. I've fixed it easily, but word to the wise, be a little more gentle when handling

Merry Christmas, heretic! Hope it was a good one. Thanks!

I'm very stoked to have purchased the house and having some "studio" space will be a huge advantage to getting hobby stuff done.

I also managed to get some sweet X-mas loot from the wifey.



I'm pretty impressed with her support! Usually she rolls her eyes at the cost GW demands, but she succumbed, like we all do!

Glad to get more reinforcements. I just have to get some building time in. With all these troops and tanks it's starting to really feel like I'm building an army. 2014 will be exciting. Up until The Everliving kill us all.

The handle towards the back and one side that holds the saw in place. I got it in the frosted clear. It wasn't super fragile, just more fragile than I clearly anticipated. All good now though.
