Chaos Space Marines Army Painting Challenge - September Part One

I've decided to convert to Chaos, I had some miniatures laying around, and with Dark Vengeance being released it makes sense to paint something that would fit (and also it's been sitting in a box - unopened - since Christmas). Daemon Prince time - no more slacking for me!

Soul Drinkers Army Painting Challenge - August, Part Two

I finished up my second Librarian for the Army Painting Challenge, although I'm currently unsure of whether I'll be able to get the unit of scouts painted up.

And a group shot of my force, sans this Librarian:

Brettonia Lord/Paladin WIP

This is my first model in my Bretonnia army that I've started painting. I only have a box of Knights of the Realm at the moment, and I'm currently deciding whether or not I'm going to go for a Bretonnia army, or whether I'll just paint these up for display. The Ride is nearly complete, but I have started on the horse yet.

Soul Drinkers Army Painting Challenge - August, Part One

I'll be working on getting a second Scout Squad done (so that I can hopefully get a Land Speeder Storm painted soon), and my second Librarian as well. I was going to use the Scouts in a Crimson Fist army but didn't really get far with them or the army, so they'll be re-primed and then painted up as Soul Drinkers.

Soul Drinkers Army Painting Challenge - June, Part One

So here's my entry for the army painting challenge. This is the second half of Tactical Squad Flamma, and will probably be given a Drop Pod (which I've already started on), and may be joined by a Librarian or my counts-as Tigurius.

My apologies for the poor picture, I had to settle for using my poor quality camera (it came free with a printer or something).

Metal Tyranid Hive Tyrant WIP

Ok, so you may or may not remember this post, in which I put a (blurred out) picture of my Hive Tyrant. Well, here's a WIP of the beast in question. Since taking this picture, I have started work on the carapace, and found a proper base (not made with foamboard).

I got it about a year and a half ago, and the Tyrant was an absolute nightmare to put together. I plan on getting a plastic Tyrant, and possibly magnetise it.

Ripper Swarms

The sounds of hundreds of tiny gnashing teeth made Sergeant Serpentius turn suddenly. Down below, he could see hordes of rippers moving towards his position. Serpentius fired a round from his combi-flamer into the mass of bodies, hoping to frighten them away, but they kept coming. A shadow passed across him, and he glanced up, searching the sky. The Scout Sergeant shuddered as something stabbed through his back and into his heart, and he fell to the floor, dead.

Psychic Duel - Soul Drinkers Librarian & Zoanthrope

I finished my Soul Drinkers Librarian for the Army Painting Challenge, so I thought I'd photograph my based Zoanthrope while I was photographing him, so here they are:

Saturday, 5 May 2012

Almost finished Zoanthrope

So here's the Zoanthrope, it has been based, just didn't picture it:

1) Undercoat the model with Skull White spray
2) Paint the flesh with Rakarth Flesh
3) Wash the flesh with Agrax Earthshade
4) Paint the carapace, claws, base and other armoured areas with Abaddon Black
5) Paint lines of Doombull Brown onto the carapace, leaving no gaps between the lines
6) Paint lines of Khorne Red on top, leaving some Doombull Brown showing through
7) Layer Wazdakka Red over the previous coat, again leaving Khorne Red and Doombull Brown showing through
8) Paint the brain and eyes with Warpstone Glow
9) Highlight the brain and eyes with Moot Green
10) Apply Astrogranite to the base
11) Wash the base with Nuln Oil

Zoanthrope WIP, and Imperial Fist transmission

++Incoming transmission from Scout Sergeant Serpentius++
++Subject: Enemy forces spotted++
++Battle Brothers; I have spotted Tyranid vanguard forces. I plan to take out their leader whilst my Scout Squad return to you with information.
This appears to be the lead creature. Something is interfering with the signals, and the Tyranids are advancing on my position. Prepare for battle, I will take out as many of these creatures as possible.
They’re here. It’s been an honour serving with you, my Battle Brothers. For the Emperor, for Dorn++
++Transmission over++

And a WIP of my Zoanthrope
