    Games Workshop Stormwolf

    Wow, been a while since I posted anything here. Been doing a lot of prep on a bunch of Space Wolves for 40K. I don't actually play, but due to a few things happening, I ended up with a bunch of space wolves. I've never painted an army before, so I thought it'd make a good project. Or a quick method of going mad. We'll see which one. This fella is intended for my FLGS's painting contest. Gonna turn it in tomorrow. This was my first go at Zenithal shading. First I primed it black, then grey at 45 degrees, then white at about 10 degrees. Pre-shades it. I then did the same with the blue-grey basecoat colors, repeating the shadow, midtone, highlight. There's a bit of a gap. I didn't assemble it quite how the instructions recommend. You're supposed to put everything together, then paint it. However, I painted it in stages. And to be able to do the zenithal, but paint the cockpit separately, I had to leave the top as a separate piece until I was done. It's not showing really well here, but I did some heat staining effects on the side guns there. I also added a slight "glow" effect to the runes. It doesn't really show here, but it looks okay in person. Basically just a white wash, with a blue glaze over it. You can kind of see the heat staining effect on the engines here. I don't think I'll actually win the contest, but I think it's one of the best things I've painted, so I'm glad I decided to enter. One good thing about these contests is that it's really inspired me to pick up the brush.
  2. Because I have the laser like focus of your average mayfly, I have another Nurgle Chaos Marine Daemon Prince conversion in the works in addition to my currently running one with the Eldritch Demon from Bones. This one involves the head of the Caller's undead giant rat mount from Necromunda(out of print GW figure) combined with the Nurgle Daemon Prince from GW (if you search on that on their store you will find it). I am putting up my initial kitbash of the two (minus arms) to solicit ideas for the base. I'm tempted to wait for the Bones KS2 figures to come out and put the fat, nurgling looking devils from the..er..Devils option on the base with some additional sculpting. Or I could use some of my plethora of rats. Thoughts?

    Typhus champion of Nurgle

    This is my take on Typhus, Death Guard champion of Nurgle. Added a nurgling to his base and swapped his scythe blade out for a glaive because I thought it looked more awesome on him and I wanted to steal his scythe blade for a daemon prince conversion. Note, I have decided that taking pictures of Nurgle paint schemes is a major pain. The nastiness looks awesome for the force but taking pictures is a bear.

    Nurgle Dreadnought

    We return to the foul forces of Nurgle to view my Death Guard Dreadnought from Forge World. Played with matte (corroded, dirty) and gloss(puss and other nastiness) surfaces on this one. No real conversion on this one, just added a couple of Nurglings to the base.
  5. This is a sad story, kind of... About 4 years ago I was just getting into Warhammer 40k and I was the Tau army... I decided to make a piece of terrain I could (justifiably) put in almost every scenario as a fall back point. The story behind it was that the Tau would drop it from orbit and would automatically provide cover and intel., etc. Its was only allow in large scale skirmishes - counting as points in my army. Worked great, I could fall back behind it and shoot through the one way windows and it had a drone that could detach from it and follow around if things got too harry. Alas, I never finished it, what you see here is the last of it... I had to sell it... But I hope it inspires somebody! Materials: A vitamin bottle, a cap to a pill bottle, top half of an antenna, a paper clip, sand, rocks, left over spurs, left over tau mech command antenna's, and Green Stuff. I acutally carved out a Spur pole to fit and entire rack of guns. Above is a place for pistols. Here is the War Map and the concept I had in mind. To the right is a helmet. I actually took a Tau head and carved it out so it looked liked a Commander took his helmet off and placed it there. Took forever to carver it out! I hope you have enjoyed my blast from the past! I THOROUGHLY enjoyed making this. Wish I had some pictures of my Cardboard City stuff I made.

    QUOVANDIUS...(54mm)

    FIGURE...INQUISITOR QUOVANDIUS (54MM)...(Games Workshop) NOTE...Ouovandius was a mutated slave from Thagra IV who was stayed from execution to become the sworn protector of Inquisitor Eisenhorn and later to become the sidekick of Slick Devlin...Quovandius was a tormented character who underwent the most horrid operations and experiments that turned him into a wretched/horrid looking creature on the outside but with a tender heart and soul on the inside...turning him into the beastly protector of the young and innocent and the hunter of the evil dark forces. With his ability of speech nearly completely removed...he often carried flowers and would say...(PRREETTY)! Hope you like my new figure...

  9. Hello. Thought I would share the very first 2 miniatures I've ever painted; the space marine was painted first and then the scarabs were painted second. I really like the effect basing adds to a miniature, kind of like providing a background to a drawn character. I did a lot of reading up and watching videos and looking at examples before attempting these, and I can definitely tell I need to develop some muscle memory for my painting hand. Feel free to ask questions or provide some advice/pointers. The space marine looks like he does because I tried putting a sealant coat on him after the paint job to protect him (Citadel's Purity Seal spray can) but it didn't do what I wanted and, in my opinion, degraded the figure. If anyone has any better alternative products that would work to protect the miniature without compromising the paint job please please please leave a comment with your suggestion. Thank you.

    April Foolishness

    Presenting Sgt. Niko Ohio of the mighty Sanrio division. The most courageous Space Marines you never heard of. Occasionally the semi local, sorta helpful Games Workshop store has a free mini stand outide, trying to get people to come in and buy some. This is one of it's liberated miniatures. Because he was a) free and b) a Space Marine, I decided to have some fun, he's been sitting around just aiting for April 1 to come about.
  12. This is my first attempt at painting miniatures. Worker at the FLGS (Hat's in Tucson) talked me into trying this paint set as something fairly simple, with lots of flat surface and not too many fiddly details or textures. I've definitely got a long way to go still, but I liked the way they came out, overall. I ended up painting three of the five. I was painting in the hobby shop, and, having just gotten back to the states, I didn't want to be too late getting home. The other two are in the background. I'll eventually get to them, hopefully after my skills have improved, and I can compare them with the first three. Here's a top view, giving a look at the box they came in, along with the two in the back. Here's a front view. The bit of muck on the Marine on the left's forehead is apparently supposed to be wreath-like, signifying he's in charge. Obviously, I did not do well on that detail. About face! I like the way the skulls came out. Face right! The sword-sigil things on their pauldrons had... mixed results. I need to work on thinning out the paint, and not picking up so much water on the brush. Face left! Those are supposed to be arrows. Yeah, I wouldn't have guessed from the paintwork either. Overall, better than I expected them to turn out, though I need to work a lot harder on the details.
