Okay, the following models are definitely NOT chaos cultists:

It's the two Gun Drones that go with my Piranha, and three Marker Drones. Here's a pic of just the marker drones:

My freehand still needs lots of work, as you can tell. I was going to just paint simplistic stripes on the marker drones, but I decided to go full nerd and paint actual Tau numbers on them. I'll do the same with all of my marker drones, sequentially (the ones shown are 01, 02, and 03 from left to right). I decided to do the numbers because of the movie Oblivion (the drone things in that movie had numbers on them).
Edit: Woohoo page 4!

Progress has been made on the cultists, specifically the main three colors I mentioned earlier for the clothing have been done:

Next I'll probably basecoat the metallic parts, such as the guns, as well as larger leather parts, like the boots and gloves. I also need to clean up the colors that have already been applied, but that will wait until I'm almost ready to shade them.

I've also decided to go ahead and finish up five Bloodletters that I started on way back on page 1 of this blog. It's high time I finished them, although since I counted them as done for last year's total I won't count them for this year. I've just given them a shade of Carroburg Crimson to add some definition to the skin, here's what they look like right now:

Next step will be some drybrushing. First I will drybrush the skin with Mephiston Red, then the bumpy parts will be drybrushed with Troll Slayer Orange. Finally I'll do the horns with some type of gray, not sure about which gray yet. I'll probably drybrush the Hellblades as well, using either Hashut Copper or Sycorax Bronze. Ultimately I may put some Blood for the Blood God on them to make them look like they've been killing stuff recently (appropriate for daemons of the Blood God, I think!).

More to come, so watch this space!

Hello again! I've gotten a little bit more done on the Cultists, as can be seen in this WIP photo:

I've done the leather gloves and boots, as well as all the metallics on the weapons. Next thing to do will be to shade and highlight these areas, then on to the skin.

I've also continued in earnest on painting the Tau Piranha that has been sitting on my workbench mocking me. I've decided that it will be painted this month or bust! Here's the latest WIP shot:

As you can see, I've painted the hull in the base color of my Tau army, Caledor Sky. Now I need to clean it up a bit (I think I missed a couple of spots) and then start painting the camo pattern. This will be my first time trying to paint any kind of camo scheme, so wish me luck on that!

Finally, I've assembled one of my most recently acquired models:

I've been wanting this model for a while, and now I have it. I left the cape off for now, as it would be difficult to paint with it already on the miniature. I intend to paint some regular Ravenwing first and then "reward" myself by painting Sammael. It's the only way I'll probably be able to motivate myself to paint more Ravenwing, as they are pretty boring to paint.

I hope to have more progress to show soon!

Well, finally coming back to painting after being too tired and/or busy for a while. I changed my tactics (or rather came to my senses) and decided to do the skin before I continue on anything else. I should have done it first, as now I've made a mess and will have to spend more time touching up the clothing before I can shade anything. Here's the latest WIP shot:

As you can see, still lots more to do. On a positive note, the Rakarth Flesh basecoat with a layer of Kislev Flesh actually gives a nice pale skin color, perfect for dwellers of the lower levels of an Imperial hive city. I'm just using Duncan Rhodes' method for painting pale skin (from the Warhammer TV Advent Calendar).

The Tau Piranha is coming along as well, I've finished the basic work on the camo pattern, and I think it turned out pretty good:

I'll probably fix it up a bit better before I go on and paint the details on this vehicle.

In other news, I've begun assembling Wargames Factory's female Apocalypse Survivors. I'm going to be trying to assemble them to stand in as additional Chaos Cultists. I intend to do a small review of the kit in this blog, so stay tuned for that.

Great job on the piranha camo. Also, fantastic work on the cultists. I normally hate those models, but your color scheme actually makes them look interesting.
And lastly, kudos for having the discipline to paint ravenwing. Black is such a tedious color to paint well.

Oh yeah, I love that camo on the Piranha. Its come out really well. Also, I Sammael in resin or plastic? Cos I hope you haven't primed him white

EDIT: I would totally paint some of that ravenwing for you. I've strangely got addicted to painting black recently, but I have no black armoured armies. :/

@brushcommando: Thanks for the compliments! The cultists are actually some of my favorite Chaos models, so I'm pretty happy to finally be putting some paint on them. As for the Ravenwing, I haven't painted many of them yet, and those that I have were among my first ever painted models and look pretty sad next to stuff I've painted recently. I'll happily post more here when I do them though!

@WarbossDakka: Sammael is a Finecast model, so resin. Not fun working with that stuff, but it is what it is. As much as you would probably enjoy painting my Ravenwing, my usual motto stands: no one paints my minis except me! All I can say is, maybe you should get some Ravenwing of your own to paint! The models are great, and their in-game stats are boss!

Glad you guys like the Piranha camo, I was worried that it would just look wierd or something! I intend to duplicate this basic pattern on all of my Tau vehicles (but not the battlesuits).

High time for an update on my progress. The Cultists are coming along, although nothing photo-worthy at this time. I've cleaned up a lot of the colors and shaded them, so all that is left is highlights and basing as well as the little tiny details (such as belt buckles, eye lenses on gasmasks, etc.). Hopefully I'll get more done quick, since I've only got 6 days left to get finished!

My Tau Piranha is nearly done. I've touched up the camo a little and painted some of the details black, here's a photo showing what it looks like now:

I'm going for a blue glow on the fusion blaster. It looks kind of funny in the photo, but it should look good when it's all done. The vehicle and crew are ready for some shading, then just a few highlights (and probably some yellow markings) and I can call this vehicle done!

More progress has been made on both the Cultists and the Piranha. The cultists have had some highlights applied and have had a few detail colors applied, here's a WIP shot:

Not too much left to do; just some leather details like belts and a few pouches I somehow missed before, then some small metal details like buckles and buttons and studs, then a drybrush over all the leather stuff with Doombull Brown to kind of highlight the edges, and then finally the bases. If I have time I will do the planned blood on the models, but only if I have time for it. I've only got like 3 days left to finish these models and I may be busy with RL stuff, since I plan to go see X-men: Apocalypse tomorrow afternoon and I have to work the following two days.

The Piranha now has had the shading applied to the panel lines:

I'll need to clean up the blue some, then add some yellow letters or numbers or some kind of details, then add the pilots and it'll be done!

@angelofvengeance: Thanks a bunch! I'm very happy with how it turned out, especially since the camo pattern itself was just improvised really, not much planning to it other than what colors to use.

I've now finished the Chaos cultists, and not a moment too soon, as the monthly painting challenge is almost over! Here's the pics:





The last pic is supposed to show off the blood on the weapons, but it really doesn't. Oh well. It's the first time I've used Citadel's Blood for the Blood God, and I have to say I like the way it looks. Once I get a little better with it I think I can make my Khorne Daemonkin minis look suitably gory! The Cultist champion is conspicuously absent, but as I said in an earlier post I will need to repaint him in colors that match the ones I used for the squad. I'll get to him eventually...

Hopefully soon I'll have some finished pics of my Tau Piranha. Just a few small details and cleanup left on that model, and it'll be done! Probably in the next day or two I should have pics up of it. My next major project is going to be a certain Greater Daemon of Khorne with a really big axe and a seriously negative attitude!

@Januine: Thanks a lot, that is high praise coming from you! I look forward to seeing the rest of your DV cultists sometime! The flamer dude is probably my favorite of this bunch as well, so I'm glad you like him!

The fething Piranha's finished! Finally! Pics or it didn't happen, you say? Here ya go:


Shame of it is, I won't be using this model much if at all, as Piranhas are just not very competitive right now. Oh well, I'm still happy to have it done. Again, not my greatest work, but far from my worst. I struggled with what to do to get some yellow details on it, but ultimately decided to make the pilot a Shas'ui (hence the yellow helmet vane and shoulder pad) and add numbers and scribbles on the sides. The scribbles are supposed to be the crew's names (kind of like on a fighter jet) and the vehicle number is 117, a reference to the Halo video game series' main character, Master Chief Petty Officer John-117. I'm very happy with how the camo turned out, and I think it will work well on future Tau vehicles that I paint.

In other news, I've assembled one box of Chaos Warhounds to use as Flesh Hounds of Khorne:

I put them on 50mm bases to be compliant with the current standard for Flesh Hounds (the kit came with WHFB cavalry bases).

I've also assembled one of my Chaos biker champions:

I figured I could represent a combi-melta by putting one of those gargoyle things from the Chaos vehicle sprue on the end of a bolter (like it's a Daemonic weapon or something). I put the model on an oval base I had. I've got plenty of those sitting around after buying three of the base packs that had 3 50mm rounds, 20 32mm rounds, and 5 of the ovals in each. It looks like they are starting to move toward putting bikes on those, so I thought I'd put my Chaos bikes on them. Plus, the spikes will hang way off a regular bike base. One thing I've learned after beginning to assemble the bikers is that the Chaos bike kit is a real PITA to assemble. Those legs just don't want to fit on the bike. I actually had to cut part of the inside of each one to make it work.

Next up will be the Bloodthirster, so be ready for it!

@Azazelx: Thanks for the compliment on the Piranha, I'm glad you like it! As for the hounds, I've seen other players in my area run these models as Khornedogs before, so I already knew it would work. They look better than GW's "official" Flesh Hound models IMO.

@aov: Thanks! I thought painting camo would be a hard and drawn out process, but it turned out it was easy as pie! Glad you and others think I did a good job on it; now I can apply the same basic pattern to my other Tau vehicles whenever I get around to painting them.

I've begun work on the Bloodthirster, here's the latest WIP shot:

I still have one more drybrush to go on the skin (Evil Sunz Scarlet), and then a glaze of Bloodletter to make the red more vivid. Hopefully when all is said and done the skin will look at least as good as the Soul Grinder I did last year. That model was practice for this one as far as the skin. I'm mostly following Duncan Rhodes' method from the 2 part video on how to paint a Bloodthirster. I may add a few of my own touches here and there (like some Blood for the Blood God on the axe), but we'll see how I'm doing for time as I get further on the model.

@Guildenstern: Thanks, I'm glad you like the Piranha! The Bloodthirster has been really fun to do so far, it is such an awesome model. Truly one of GW's best!

I've made a little bit more progress, although I'm starting to fall behind where I should be if I want to actually finish by the end of the month. I've finished the skin and basecoated the horns, claws, and fur:

Only problem is when I basecoated all the stuff gray I missed the teeth! Oh well I'll go back and do them before I continue with the rest. I'll need to shade and highlight those areas, then it'll be on to the wing membranes, which will be super easy (basically just basecoat black to clean up the mess from painting the skin, then lightly drybrush gray to emphasize all the texture). Hopefully I can get back on track and make serious progress soon!

More progress! The horns, claws, teeth, and wing membranes are all done now, as can be seen in these two photos:

Next up will be the metallic stuff, like the weapons, armor, and some other small bits scattered around the model. Then I'll have to do all the human skulls, then the flames on the base, then the actual base itself. It's gonna look good when it's all done, though, I can feel it!

Thanks a bunch, Guildenstern! I'm probably going to do my usual texture paint, shade, and drybrush, then add some grass tufts. As an added touch, I may try to find a way to make the ground look scorched around the flames, though. Another thing that's hard to see in most of the photos is the fact that I've already added a few pieces from the Badlands basing kit (an animal skull, a pair of human skulls, a skull in a Guardsman's helmet-notice a theme here?). That should help make the base look interesting, which is important on such a large base.

My armies (re-counted and updated on 11/22/19, including modeled wargear options):
Dark Angels: ~13000 | Space Marines (Blood Ravens and others): ~1300 | Space Wolves: ~3400
Astra Militarum: ~500 | Officio Assassinorum: ~500 | Imperial Knights: ~800 | Sisters of Battle: ~200
Tau Empire: ~6600 | Chaos Space Marines (various legions): ~2900 | Death Guard: ~2800 | Chaos Daemons (all types): ~1900

Okay, finally more to show on the Bloodthirster:

I've gotten most of the metallics done, just a highlight left on the brass parts. I've also basecoated all the skulls. There are plenty of those scattered around the model, even in the 'thirster's hair (not visible in this photo). Next thing I need to do will be to shade and highlight the skulls, as well as highlight the brass as I said. After that, just the black leather belts and straps that hold the armor on, the flames (that will be tough to make look good), and the basing. Oh, and the small fiddly bits like the tongue and eyes. Can't forget those.

In addition to working on the Bloodthirster, I finished assembling my Chaos Bikers:

Not a good photo, but there really isn't much to see. I had one meltagun from a Chaos Marine sprue, and I came up with 3 resin ones from a GW pack of 5. The combi-meltas on the Champions are a bolter with the barrel cut off and a gargoyle head from the Chaos vehicle sprue attached. Should be okay when painted.

Hopefully I can finish the Bloodthirster soon, I've got about a week left, so wish me luck!

@aov: Thanks, buddy! He's certainly my favorite of the three new Bloodthirsters, and not just because of his in-game performance.

This will be the final WIP shot before the final photos:

The only thing left to do on the Bloodthirster himself is a small drybrush of the black straps wrapped around the big axe. Other than that, there's just the flames and the base. I'm actually gonna finish him this month, possibly by tomorrow evening depending on what I do with the rest of my weekend (I'm going to see Independence Day: Resurgence this afternoon and then having dinner with my folks afterwards). Stay tuned for the final pics of this monster!
