I mean to put up pics of the things I've been bashing away at over the last few weeks but been so busy with my band it's completely lipped my mind. I finished building the plague burst crawler and have a game with it this week. I also started making some more space marines with all the bits that I cleaned up since last time, so without further ado!

My lieutenant with power sword and master crafted boltgun! It's very funny if you know what kit that gun comes from:


Captain w/ jump pack and thunder hammer storm shield. Two of the guys in my work gaming group gave me the jump pack as well as the hammer and vanguard legs:


And my version of Gor Half-Horn. I've very happy I had that particular raptor sword left over as it matches exactly where his head was pointing and I didn't need to remove it. Don't you love serendipity?


Now on to something a bit more... eggy

I'm stuck on call this weekend so house bound for most of it, the warden is down the country visiting family so it's the best time to try and finish my LoER entry. I made up my mind before that I wil be doing the majority of this using only washes to see what can be done, and the alien nature of it meant I could experiment with colours. So here's what I've been at! I'm currently waiting for the first layer to dry:


Important tools and resources:


And after the first layer:


Garish and gaudy enough?

@Flinty Cheers! Hopefully after lots of washes it will look even more gribbly. The most gribbly even!

@Syro it is great to finally play some games again! I've aways been a collector/converter but when you have a massive army of dudes its always great to bring them along and just throw down with a friend

@kestral thanks very much, I thought so myself. I was thinking the cyber arm was a bit much but the out stretched hand does make it look very grim dark and scary even. I had other ideas for that warband but I've consolidated that to the back of the pile of shame. I feel the need to massively prioritize things since real life comes so hard and heavy

Hey guys, just a quick check in. I got the urge to go at my death guard conversions again. Finished off the Foul Blightspawn tonight and starting on my own version of Typhus, but that's for later. Some pics of the blightspawn, as always let me know what you think.

I had to copy the nurgling holding the grenade from the original model, just found a different way to fit him in:


Isn't he just menacing looking?

I also made a Typhus! I've to fill up the spaces around the arms with greenstuff and sculpt his destroyer hive but other than that he's donezo and I'm hella happy with him. I currently have my Daemon Prince and Helbrute on my cutting board but might just go ahead and make something else! Who knows!!?!

Looking good! The helbrute you'll be making, is it a Dark Vengeance one, or from a regular kit?

It's the Dark Vengeance one. I love that kit! It's so hard to not buy any I see on eBay I'll be making him in to a twin las and missile launcher one with a few nurgley bits to tie him into the death guard. I also finished rebasing and converting the chosen squad, just need some green stuff work and they're done.

Don't worry, I haven't forgotten about the painting of my LoER entry! That will be done over this long weekend

No worries about the LoER entry, with the extention you have plenty of time with how far you already are.

I have to agree with you on the Dark Vengeance Helbrute You know me, how I like making most of my stuff and not buying too much, well I've bought a total of 3 Dark Vengeance Helbrutes. I've sawed one into many pieces to try and do some heavy conversion on it, and the project kinda stalled out. I'm looking forward to seeing yours, maybe it will inspire me to get back to mine.

Some nice conversions you got here. Liking the mutie on the previous page, and the gor in particular.

Look forward to seeing what you do with the hellbrute

Thanks guys. Haven't gone near the converting/creating corner in the last week. My band got through to the finals of the Mammothfest competition so been practicing for that like a loon(and doing important things like seeing the Rolling Stones last night) for that. I've taken an hour from here and there to paint my LoER entry. Need to pick up some more colours for highlights on the weekend but I'm happy to share the nearly completed entry for some feedback. I know I've mentioned it before but I purposely did everything except the Tyranid with washes to see the effect. I think it gives it a cool comic book type feel. Anyway, here she is:



Aaaaand I may have bought a new thing! An unopened box of sternguard came up on a local buy and sell site for cheap so I snatched it up. The amount of options is just too much for me though... so I sorted that issue out with a quick trip to spellcrow! I've enough now to make 11 Sternguard! I plan to make 5 with the special issue boltgun, make a few with flamers and meltaguns as that's fluffy for the Salamanders and I'm not sure on the rest. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!





And here's the freebies they threw in! Lots of great stuff, all slightly mis-cast but nothing a little cleaning can't fix

I'm still here! And actually started doing that thing I always said I would do. Painting! I've a few boys lined up for this weekend while the warden is away to blast out. Same excuse as always for the delay, life!

So this lad is base paints and wash. I went for a darker green, castellan green, for the armour as that's how I always remembered the Death Guard. Thinking of doing the smoke bright yellow, still only primer.

Cheers Syro. I'm really liking these plague marines. A lot of detail but really nice to paint. They've definitely got my motivation up. I powered ahead and finished this guy off today, have 5 of his buddies lined up for finishing next

But here's the end result. I'm really happy with it. Any CC would be great. I only edge highlighted a bit of the armour and will probably keep it at that level for the rest of the guys

`Nearly did it guys, nearly finished a squad! Just waiting for the sitrland mud to dry so I can finish of the bases(and the highlights on the corked ones) so leaving it for tonight and will go at them tomorrow. I also need seraphim sepia for the pustules, or if anyone else has a better way to do them let me know.

Wow, you're really moving on those guys, looking good! I wonder if it would help to use a dark wash on the mouth grill of that first marine?

   
Made in ie

Ireland

@Syro you mean the little guy? I think he does need a bit of revisiting after learning a bit painting the others

So I cracked on ahead and got these guys finished last night(stirland mud takes ages to dry)! Really happy with them but after taking the photos I can already see loads of places to touch up, close ups man In any case, they look great from a tabletop view so I'm happy to leave them like they are for now, plus I've primed another 7 and they're sitting in front of me ready for a base coat once I finish this post.

CC is very welcome. I'm happy with the results but I could get much better and more efficient painting these. Things that need to be done 1) highlight more, I only did the armour, 2) more agrax/definition on the weapons, they're a bit meh atm 3) large spikes are a big bland, need some texture or colour gradient to them and 4) paint those lovely pustules! I created another thread asking the good people here at dakka how they do them. I need to get more paint for final highlights on the plasma guns and also for the aforementioned pustules.

Here's the squad:


My favourite guy so far. I loved this model since I first seen DI announced, so much character. I'm particularly happy with the helmet lens and the small ripple I got at his foot. Gun is too bland atm though:


Second guy, pretty normal. Gun needs work and the spikes as well:


Now this guy I'm not happy with his flesh tube(ick). I'm thinking of picking up some carroburg crimson to make it a bit darker? It's just washed with reikland atm which I don't think is enough:


Sergeant next, I like this guy. I was worried about this one with the open face but I like how it came out:


Another normal dude, the red tubes need highlighting because they're so prominent on this guy:


And the small boi! Need to get an orange to do extreme highlights. Tried to do a plasma glow, which kind of works?

Looking good.

For the first-time guy maybe try spot washing the crimson, rather than washing the whole tube. So but it up around the years and spots.


Been awhile since I painted any boils, but I often went the other way to many - all white, then yellow ibk, then thin washes of darker yellow, red and finally purple as you work out from centre.

Ugh, I think I actually gagged a bit when expanding the spoiler they're brilliant, very pustuley. That's exactly what I want on a smaller scale, need to grab some yellow wash this weekend and try it out. Thanks monkeytroll

Cheers Cam! First go at the boils and I'm fairly happy with them. Casandora yellow wash over rakarth, then blood for the blood god, some yriel yellow in the middle then another yellow wash



I've got an assembly line of 9 guys lined up that I'm cracking through every other day. Got my base colours down but I keep getting distracted by battletech, just love that game! Decided to go back to another project yesterday though, old Mr. Daemon Prince

I love the boils, but probably not for the reason you are hoping. To me, the effect looks really good for the guy being full of hot magma like some heldrakes are painted. So to me the boils look more like intense heat and light leaking out of the body. The nurgle-ification of the daemon prince is looking very nice too.

Thanks Syro, yeah they're not really sickly. Probably need a purple wash or something but I'm happy with how they look and time to move on. Plan to get a lot of hobbying done this weekend as I'm on call for work so house bound

In other news I'm very immature friend lent me his green stuff world tube roller and I decided to make my Daemon Prince's plague spewer extra nasty

Omg where does the time go!? It's been an extremely hectic few months since the end of the summer and only starting to get back to normal. Turns out recording, promoting and releasing an EP is much more work than I thought. Then the usual work, family issues, cat needing surgery blah blah but I'm back for now! Until the next road block life throws at me

I had my first game in months last week which got my warhammer juices flowing again! I grabbed my white primed poxwalkers and washed them into shape. Really happy how they came out and will assembly line them in groups of 10 next time I'd say. Everything except the metals, some leather pouches and the main lads coat is pure washes


Another thing that kicked this off is our work clubs Kill Team order finally arrived. It was out of stock for ages and took about 2 months since we ordered it to arrive.The great thing is we got 200 budget from our sports and clubs team so we have a nice kill team collection in the office now. We got the main box, sector mechanicus killzone, the deathwatch killteam set, the imperial tempestus kill team set and 3 boxes of ETB cadian guardsmen to fill up the remaining points in the genestealer cults and guard killteams. We're planning an open night next week inviting people to help us build and play some games, maybe get some new members.

So I needed to finish my deathguard kill team! Primed and ready for painting!

So I've been sick the last week, off work with a nasty sinus infection given by grandfather nurgle himself! Wasn't able to do anything at the start but have recovered enough to start painting again and off work till tomorrow so great time to try out some experimenting with poxwalkers. I've been really enjoying the basing white then washing and I wanted to understand how each wash worked on it's own, so started experimenting.

Drakenhof Nightshade, Nuln Oil, and Coelia Greenshade


Biel Tan Green, Athonian Camoshadeand Agrax Earthshade


Reikland Fleshshade, Cassandora Yellow and Druchii Violet


Carroburg Crimson, Seraphim Sepia and Fuegan Orange


I've been messing around to see what colours go over what shades for boils and such so some look meh but others I'm really happy with. Going to block in the rags and metals today, finish the bases and hopefully be done by tomorrow night with another 14 poxwalkers!
