Cheers Gits! :-) there'll be more update here soon as i'm working on a squad of GSC for Mr Whaley!


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Here are some progress shots of Whaley's GSC scheme obviously still more to do but not heaps as they came together pretty well and I like the look personally! I'll highlight the cloth and shade down the armour a bit more and do the pouches etc, hope they're coming along o.k

Finished up the GSC, they look pretty good with my grimy photo style too, sort of slinking around in the gloom! a nice decent tabletop job for Whaley again makes me a happy man! I don't know why I enjoy painting his models but I do, I can do them with different attempts at things and mostly they turn out o.k !

here they are.

More stuff today all finished up! I was asked to paint a converted scout biker squad for a Blood Ravens army, they used the new GSC bikes and they actually work rather well together, poses are slightly harder to line up with hands but i'd say it's a success and looks very scouty




I am planning to do this too. Glad to see how well it works.Yours look amazing.

I am so happy with how these guys look! I now finally have a gang for Necromunda! and they look how I wanted them too, creepy, a little mentally unstable and raggedly uncaring. I am not sure about the way to paint them yet really grotty and filthy with muted colours? or bright and fresh and then dirty them up a little? or a bit of both? mainly they;ll be simple dirty creams and leather with pops of colour on the puffy sleeves and ribbons, feathers, makeup etc

I've got names for 5 of them so lets get onto it and see what you think of them

Cawdor Killer Clowns

Lucky Dip the Clown

(needs a name? was a penal legionnaire who escaped into th underhive, hence the helmet and ball and chain)

Art the Clown

'Teddy'

(needs a name)

(needs a name)

Mr Tickles

(needs a name)

(needs a name)

Mr Bungle


I also assembled them in true Clown fashion by only listening to Mr Bungle, Twiztid and Insane Clown Posse to really get the feel

I finished my Cawdor Clowns gang! 'The Nightbreed' are ready to slink and caper in the oily shadows of the hive I am really happy with them, the conversions worked out and suit them and the theme well! heaps of personality in this lot I even did the middle tabard on them all to be flayed skin just for the creepy factor.

I hope you like them as much as I do

I don’t think they should breed......even at night .

Wonderful splatter of color, definitely fits the theme of the group. Might need just a little more arterial red, but they look like they are headed out to fix that .

Wow.

Haven't checked in for a while, and scrolling through Tau, Abby, the GSC, the Cawdor gang is just fantastic. Consistently brilliant and applied to quite a wide-range of models.

The gang is amazingly realized. Better than I imagined as a concept, and I had high expectations going in.

Great work. Did you incorporate Contrast paints for the colourful parts?

Brilliant end result dude I should have heaped more praise on you for seeing the demented clown bastards in the Cawdor kit as well, very smart stuff.

Thanks so much guys, as soon as I saw the Cawdor I saw twisted Clowns, the ragged clothes and the sort of hunched spindly limbs sold it for me :-)

A couple of people have asked if I used contrast paints on them and the answer is no, I have not used them nor have I even tried them at this stage as I can't see a huge benefit for my style of painting, but that may change in the future when I try it.

I've got a couple of small commissions arrive today, some more Tau, 9 stealth suits and a broadside and riptide, and also some LoTR models which i've not painted before with 8 horses and some foot soldiers and characters.

That's my favorite Necromunda gang ever, they're beyond cool. I have to say you made me really happy by naming one Mr. Bungle, lol, I haven't thought about Mr. Bungle in like 18 years. Fantastic work!
