Have to get to sleep as I work tomorrow but as promised I took a few more shots in the lightbox. May take a few more later to get a few different angles and play with lighting some more but for tonight this is all I can muster. Hope you guys like these shots.

Hello everyone. It's been a long time (again) but I do have a small update here. I've been hard at work on the bases for my DoK force and I think I settled on a style I like. It's my first time attempting to mimic liquids on a base but overall I think it ended up alright. Also I have decided I really don't like the base on Morathi and will be re-doing a good chunk of it, here's an I-progress pic of the bases getting ripped apart. Hope everyone is having a fantastic November.

Nice to see you still at it. Bases look pretty good. You going to add any splatter or chunks/parts? Or is it just rivulets of blood?

@Nev Yeah I will be adding some splatter as well as some of the faded smearing you can kind of see on Morathi's base. Haven't done that part yet as the colours won't exactly match since I use Blood for the blood god for splatter but I made my own fluid for the rivulets. Will be doing a test base first to make sure I can make the two bloods play nice together before I commit these 10 bases to it.

Good to be back, motivation has been a serious problem for me (not just in Warhammer but also life in general) so I can't promise I'll be active but here's hoping something clicks this time.

"Wow" is massively inadequate.

Your Drukhari are getting pinker and pinker. Your Kabalites are pinker than your OG Wyches and your Archon is pinker than your Kabalites.

I approve wholeheartedly.

Also, your Scions look like Team Sweden. Please paint little blue triple crowns on them.

Thank you very much everyone for stopping by. Wasn't sure if I'd have a following anymore due to my frequent long period of radio silence.

@Excommunicatus Holy dude that's some dedication! Thank you so much, i really appreciate it and am quite humbled anyone would spend so much time checking out my stuff! Actually I have been working slowly on my scions. Don't have photos yet but since contrast paints came out I figured I'd take the opportunity to adjust the paint scheme and try out the hot new paints. I finished a ten hot shot lasgun guys so far and will showcase them soon.

In other news for the second time in 2 months my computer has cratered. First it was the hard drive that failed on me, I was able to salvage some things but ultimately I needed a new one and between the salvage operations, ordering the new one and getting the OS installed it took just under 2 weeks to get my computer back. then two nights ago I was having some weird graphical issues before my computer would simply force-restart itself or lose connection to my monitors. turns out my video card had decided to give up the ghost this time. My computer is now sent with the tech again and I think it's time I bite the bullet and finally replace the whole thing. 10 years was a good run for my old unit and even up to the end it played most of the modern release video games I liked. Anyways, unexpected expenses and setbacks aside I will try to find ways to post my WIP pics I've been taking. I hate using my phone to post on Dakka so maybe I'll start loading my pics on the work computers

Just a small side project I did for the holiday season. The GW that i stop in whenever I get outta town has an x-mas tree decorated with miniatures. They're all unpainted and they take them down and give them to customers to paint up and bring back to decorate the tree with. I did this one up with a "Jack Frost" colour scheme in mind. Hope you guys like him.

Wow thank you guys so much for all your kind words! Glad to see she's so well received.

I'm working away at other projects at the moment. Putting the finishing touches on Morathis base and still picking away at my Scions. I'm probably about 2 weeks away from getting my new computer. I'm hoping that once I do photo updates can be more regular.

Welcome back to the PLog Fifty happy to have you back!

So I've put a bit of work into a new project. I'm doing a Tyranid swarm force. I'm absolutely in love with Starship troopers and so an endless swarm of gnashing claws and teeth overrunning the enemy is something I've wanted to do for a long time. The list will feature many Hormagaunts and almost everything is equipped with simple scything talons. Ranged will not be a major player until larger battles (2000 points) where I've added an Exocrine to mimic the plasma bugs from SST.

I've decided on an ice world theme for my nid force. The idea being that this force is unique in that they make extensive use of tunnel networks to move about the planet as they devour everything but favouring heat energy sources. In this way they actually steal the warmth of a planet by sapping the core of it's heat and feeding on any natural heat sources such as hot springs. By doing this they force the planet into a permanent winter making any battlefield they fight on an icy cold landscape. Is this at all scientifically plausible or reasonable? Nope not at all. Neither is most of 40K though so I figure it's fine.

I've done two test models so far, with mixed feelings on them. The plan is to mostly use contrast paints do be able to paint things quickly (my list has 90 gaunts to paint after all so speed will be key). I like the kin colour and scythings talons on these but I'm just not sold on the shell at all. One has orange "vents" on his body to represent the heat energy he's devoured and is holding in his body while the other does not and one is an "on the edges" blue shell while the other one has a black stripe with spots shell influenced from Catbarfs coconut crab nids. Would love some input on these as I'm wondering if there's anything else that may look good on the shells but still be quick and easy to paint while also being scalable to the larger bugs. My questions are as follows:

- Orange vents or all blue skin, which looks better?
- The colours on the shell are black, dark blue and drybrushed white. Any other ideas for the shells on these that would looks nice? Would love to stay within cool tones.
- The patterns, any ideas on patterns that I should look at?

Any advice is always appreciated and thanks for checking them out guys and gals.

I prefer them without the orange. But it seems like you need something to break up all the blue.

Looking good. A ‘nid force is on my someday list. But not anytime soon.

It is more work, but I think the orange adds enough to the look that it may be worth it. Overall the scheme looks good. With the orange in there, working some purple into the carapace could be interesting. As for patterms, with so many models to paint moving beyond a quick stipple could be trouble.

Nice looking bug, the edges on the carapace look really good! Would go with your first example and orange on the skin. The accent makes the model look better.

Thanks for your input guys I really appreciate it! I'm thinking I'll stick with the orange, Nev you're right I do need something to break up the blue and the orange is easy to apply and only adds a small amount of time to the process.

I think I like the shell on the first one better, The more I look at them the more the colours seems to be ok so I think I'll prime up another 5 and do a few more test shells just to get some more ideas outta my head before finalizing on the end product. I currently have 40 gaunts, I'll need 20 more for one of my 1000 point lists or perhaps even 50 more for my alternate list. Built the Tyrant guard last night and will be assembling the warriors and Tyranid prime tonight. I think I'll do a built group shot tonight after I'm done building to show off how much plastic is sitting on my table.

And here we have assembled "almost" 1000 points of nids! I'm still missing 20 gaunts and a carnifex for my first test list. I have a new appreciation for any Nids collector, holy gak these things can get expensive real fast, especially if you're a fan of gaunts and warriors. Warriors are an especially brutal unit to buy as they're now 18 points a model but cost 65$ CAD per box. That's well over the 1$ per point mark. Small point of interest too is that Warriors don't come with enough scything talons in the box to equip them all with dual talons so you'll have to source them elsewhere. Luckily I have a friend who has boatloads of genestealer sprues from his force and he didn't use any of the scything talons those guys come with. Why do genestealers even come with scything talons at all anyways? Either way it works out cause I think the smaller talons from genestealers look like a nice secondary set on the warriors.

Ah, an interesting project!

I'm also in love with Starship Troopers with all it's cheesy lines and effects! Every time we have an Imperial Guard versus Tyranid game, we have to play the movie soundtrack over and over again in the background. Especially Klendathu Drop, love that piece of music.

Good choice with the colors. Was about to say that the orange vents look better, but I noticed you already stuck with that

Keep it up!

Got a small single model project underway here. I was given a Callidus Assassin to go with my Tempestus Scions force for X-mas and I finally got around to building her. I really hate the design GW went with having her leaping down on a really tall rock with her ponytail trailing upwards. Thematically it's neat as a display piece but as a gaming piece it's entirely impractical and ridiculous for two reasons.

1) She's a single human sized infantry model who stands taller than the Daemon prince model, in sheer mass she's a long shot away but she's so tall she can't even fit under the first floor of my GW designed multi-level ruins. Not being able to move her into ruins on a battlefield because she's standing on a rock and her ponytail is too tall is too much poor design for me to put up with. The second issue with her height is that in a game based on TLoS she's nearly impossible to hide behind 1 level tall LoS blockers despite, once again, being a single human sized infantry model. That's an issue of the model designers not knowing how the game works and making something for "rule of cool" instead of any practical playstyle. If I have any players that argue with me that I modeled for advantage here I'll concede right away and let us imagine she's 20 feet tall and that they can see her since it's not a hill I'm willing to die on and arguments are not something I really want to deal with in a game I play for fun.

2) Transport to games would be a nightmare. The first foam I pack her in to is going to apply pressure to that ponytail and snap it right off. As a Drukhari player I have enough issues with figuring out how to transport my fiddly models, wasn't excited about adding this one to the list. I think the pose I put her in should be a bit more transport friendly.

Anyways with my limited Green stuff skills this is what I've come up with. Her ponytail is not simply mounted with the green stuff but it's also glued at two points of contact on her back for extra stability. I'm actually quite excited to get some paint on her as I feel she should be a relatively simple model to paint.
