  1. A raiding of Rad Wasters and a gobbledegook of Goblins.All are converted from "The Hobbit: Escape from Goblin Town". I can see these filling a large number of roles; Goblins, Mutants, Poxwalkers, Ghouls, or more! Except for the Overseer and Goblin boss, all minis have been converted. Even the fantasy/feudal 40k gobbo-mutants have had weapon swaps at the least; I don't care for doubles and had already painted their base sculpt back in the summer: First, we have the Rad Wasters! I forgot to take a shot of the last one with the others. I guess he managed to sneak into the Goblin cave!
  2. The most recent project has been a return to working on my Nurgle forces for 40k. I'd been finishing up some Plague Zombies I had started before 8th even hit...I'll have more of these guys in the army than the actual Poxwalkers: They were a bit cut out, but you can see the also in progress vehicles in the background. From some fun sales events, I have the bits for so so many Mantic Zombies sitting around, and plan on diversifying the Pox horde to represent most of the 40k forces post-life. Distraction, however, arrived in the form of Marine reinforcement! I love the fact that the new Marine models actually live up to their reputation of gigantic bio-engineered super-soldiers. While it is a bit sad to slowly upgrade my Chaos forces to a more focused Legion, I wound up selling off or trading my older Plague Marines who look silly compared to these new guys. The new models, while having less options and more strict builds, are quite impressive. The Deathshroud basically only have head choices (and a few swap outs for the Champion), but they do stand out: While I plan on converting most of the new character options from the Death Guard codex like the Biologus Putrifier, Foul Bloatspawn, and Ichor-Bearing Gooeycopyrightablename, I had to get the official mini for the Tallyman. Power Abacus!
  3. Against all expectations, I'm getting back into 40K. This is because, against all expectations, some fine friendly folks are opening a FLGS that's actually local to me. That is, it's in the small town I live in. Activity is mostly been MTG and other card games along with 40K. Since they are just starting out they don't really have any terrain to play with. As it happens, I dont' have lot of stuff for 40K unless the battle is being fought on a planet that just happens to resemble the Ethiopian countryside. However, I have way too much "possible terrain stuff"/junk laying about so I figure I could knock some things out for people to use at the store. Here are some trees I put together (bases will be done later): Other plans are To copy Chris Palmer's board game punchout ruins. So sad about all the punchouts I have thrown away.. Add some Deadzone terrain bits to a styrofoam packing shape to make a bunker. Build some of the Deadzone terrain as scatter terrain. Maybe make a tower and some barriers? Any other ideas for quick, cheap, hard wearing 40K terrain are definitely welcome!
  4. 40k Heavy Bolter Team

    I've been working on some bigger projects and have been really bogged down with some of them. I decided to test out some snow following one of Mr. Justin's two minute tutorials. In order to give it a fair test, I painted up a Vahallan Heavy Bolter team. I did this to work on some leather texturing techniques I've been trying to perfect. So a lot of different things going on in this piece here. My color scheme is roughly following the Stalingrad army. I've been working off one of the Osprey books about the battle and have found it very useful. I'm pretty pleased with the results. The snow looks fantastic (I think anyway, I'm biased). I need to remember to spray seal the figures before I put them on the base.
  5. To add to the number of projects I'm falling behind on, I picked up the new 40k boxed set, "Dark Imperium": I'm really liking what I've seen for the new 40k, and although I haven't gotten a real game in in a long time, I've played Nurgle Chaos Space Marines for a long time. It's really cool to seem Marines the size they're supposed to be. I skipped over assembly photos, and went straight to the drybrushed armor. I think there's some shoulders and skin done in this photo, too: I haven't even primed the Poxwalkers yet. I already have a ton of modern/sci-fi zombie types, and while I do plan on using the new sculpts, I want to convert the second half a bit before I paint them. You can see my previous project, the poor Cave Goblins (of The Hobbit films), literally pushed to the side. I may work on them as a co-project, as they would make great Poxwalkers!
  6. Hey guys been away for a while with a severe illness however am slowly getting back on the horse through much pestering by a dear friend! I have painted a Black reach Ork warboss in Evil sunz colours and added small details to his surroundings. Using milliput I made vines with venus fly trap heads! also added a couple of skaven mini rats to the base! I hope you like my submission and as always comments are welcomed and gladly received!
  7. So whilst digging around through my 40K stuff looking for things, I found a sprue of GW's plastic ruins, and decided to assemble them and paint them up as generic terrain, hopefully to be used in our upcoming Frostgrave games.... Base coated with GW Rough Coat, a textured spray paint, sadly OOP Primed Black Dry Brushed with GW Stormvermin Fur, Codex Grey, Kommando Khaki, Fortress Grey Daubed with GW Blue, Red, Green, and Brown inks, diluted Dry brushed with GW Codex Grey, Fortress Grey, VMC Stone Grey I normally would have done a dilute Tomwise Sauce wash after the inks, but tonight whilst gabbing on the hangouts, I forgot!... Couple more coats of DullCote and they will be done... Though I may do the black wash now,,, Thoughts???? Thanks for looking!
  8. Custom Phoenix Lords

    I imagine one day that GW will update the Phoenix Lord models but I'm tired of waiting and some months ago started on a Jain Zar custom figure that I worked on here and there between other projects. This year I decided I wanted to focus on the large amount of Eldar stuff I have that's been gathering dust for years and I'm going to be focusing on three Phoenix Lords in particular: Jain Zar, Karandras, and Fuegan simply because they are my favorites. I might end up doing all of them, but for now, I'll begin with Jain Zar. So what did I want to accomplish with this? As much as I like the story of the Phoenix Lords, I have never liked some of their models even when they were still relatively new when I got into the game shortly after 3rd ed came out and now with two decades of newer, better models to outshine them, I feel like my sculpting and converting skills are at a point to tackle my own vision for them. Jain Zar's model is, in my opinion, the worst one of the bunch. The hair is crazy, the boots are ridiculous, and the pose makes the figure horribly unbalanced and prone to falling over. Aside from changing the pose, it occurred to me that the Phoenix Lords and their armor have been around since The Fall when the Eldar were still mostly one race. Once the they split, their cultures and technology evolved along different lines and I imagined that the armor of the Phoenix Lords should be a blend of the two and something unique among the modern aspect warriors that follow them. Here's my first sketch of the pose idea I had with a little greenstuff prep work already on the legs: I'm obviously going with Dark Eldar parts because I think their proportions are better and just look better than the older Eldar stuff. Renowned for being fast, I wanted to have her in a running pose and used pictures of sprinters for reference. Being a stickler for realism, I figured Jain should have a little more muscle on her than the official model, particularly in the legs from doing all that running. Here's where it starts to get ugly. The way the wych leg halves comes together doesn't leave much room for pinning and I had to trust in my sculpting skills that I could eventually make this look good because even I was having some doubts at this point. I did like how the legs were coming out though. Refining the shape of the legs and trying out something for the right arm. Recreating her signature glaive. Finally filling in the waist and adding the armor to the legs. I wasn't happy with the torpedo breast armor on the DE model so changed it up and also (shocker) wasn't happy with the previous work on the waist and removed most of it to try again. Much better go at the waist and the chest is looking good. Added a soul stone and started working on converting a head for her. More refining on the armor, more work on the head, and the spear breaks! Note the cutouts on the side of the face where the Banshee mask amplifier things will go. Now note how I filled them in because I had the idea that Jain Zar's nickname - Storm of Silence - should be literal. She is completely silent and is such a powerful psyker that she does not need an amplifier for her Banshee Wail. Building the foundation for new hair that will be a little long, but nothing like the original model or her artwork. Spear still broken. Aaaaand now the current state of her with a fixed spear and a few tiny changes here and there that are probably not visible to anyone but myself. I have a little work done on Karandras but I want to get a little more progress before I unveil him. Thanks for looking! *edit* No more img tags? Hmm, not sure if I like that.
  9. Space Hulk

    Here are some Space Hulk miniatures. I posted this as my January painting goal. Woot! I made it. I will be runnning Space Hulk at Rapiercon (http://www.rapiercon.com/) next month and wanted the figs to be painted. To be honest, though, this is not the complete set. I wanted two squads of terminators to be easy to tell apart, so two different colors were used. The figs in the box are very specific to the Blood Angels (red) chapter, so I used some other figs to represent the Ultramarines (blue). There are still 7 terminators left to call the box done, but it is good enough for what I have planned. https://goo.gl/photos/51NRopffdm9mvUwM8
  10. One of the things I've been struggling with as I assemble my hoards of D&D minis is getting wolves. High-quality, diverse wolf sculpts are actually pretty hard to find, I'm finding - I want a good-sized pack, and while I love Reaper's three-wolf pack in pewter, they're a little smol and gentle looking for my tastes... So I've been booping around Amazon looking for something to burn a giftcard on, and I found something called the Space Wolves: Fenrisian Wolf Pack. This: They look... pretty good, and @ 20$ for 5 they're more expensive than bones but cheaper than pewter (and a steal @ GW prices!) So... has anyone seen/used these? How do they measure up next to Reaper's stuff? I don't mind if they're a little hulking, but they come with 40mm bases, so they sound pretty giant? I do love that there are 5 sculpts though - that's really, really handy, since I'd probably want a good-sized pack... If anyone has a ref. of them next to a Reaper fig, or could take one, I would love you forever~!
  11. Bathalian Centurion, 14559

    I got three of these to stand if for Venomthropes in my tyranid army. Going to do the base to match the others when I've got them all done.:
  12. Imperial Guard, Officer, GW

    Finished this guy the other day. I am happy with how the face turned out.:
  13. Just like 2015, I realized the end of Orctober was quickly approaching, and I hadn't painted a single Orc! I had to remedy that, but I went through the box of "primed and ready" and found the Orcs...lacking. I had to build a few, and these were the results of those most near completion already. First, we have a group shot: "C'mon, boyz, dance like ya mean it! Show the crowd what they came here fer!" Some solo shots of the notorious Kap'n Kee-Runch, a Freeboota of little note. He's assembled from the Tankbusta Nob, arms from the plastic Nob box, and a pirate Ork head from Spellcrow. Then we have savages, the lot of them: A very agile lot of Savages. Check out those dance moves! That's the end of that.
  14. Imperial Knight, GW

    This one took a long time to complete. I claimed it finished two times, but got more feedback. Fixed a little here, added a little there.. And as they say; All good things are three. :)
  15. First tank I've ever painted. Sort of happy with how it turned out. The wings/skull symbols are made from clay.:
  16. Got this in a trade. The modifications are done by a friend. I completed the paint job.: Barrel was drilled after the pics were taken. :)
  17. Gemstone Rock Formation

    I found some Army Men terrain at my local thrift shop... How It's Made
  18. Wrecked Vehicle Crater

    I painted this up over the course of one day, yesterday. Curious to see what you guys think! If you're interested in how I made it...process is laid out here: xactoguru.blogspot.ca
  19. Mawloc, GW

    Finished the last model in my Tyranid army for now. All hail the King and Queen. :)
  20. So, I'm about to start really painting my Orks for 40k and my theme for them is Pirate - which is going to include a lot of conversions eventually and what not based on nautical ships. Where I'm stuck atm is coming up with a more or less cohesive colour scheme for them. 40K orks are fairly garish but dingy, as they've seen a lot of battles. Reds, Yellows, and Blues are common, pretty much primary colours. Their skin is almost always done up in dark greens. I am going with the greenskin but for an overall colour scheme I just don't know what to do. Some of the guys I've painted with blue pants (which are going to have white stripes on them, eventually). I don't want blue to be my main colour, overall, nor the other two most prevalent just because they're done a lot. I was thinking about the use of orange as an accent, to tie all the army together. The metals are going to be pretty usual steel, with maybe some brass here and there. Ruddy leather for the leathers, where appropriate, I think. 40k orks have a lot of orky symbols, and such that people usually paint in a variety of colours - these are more what I was thinking of doing the orange on. I was wondering what the more experienced painters thought about this idea, and other accent colours to go with? Purple's not too far off the colorwheel from blue, which is across from the orange. I am not into colour theory, I try to stick with what I know goes together, and I really don't know about orange, nor have I every used it to my knowledge, to paint anything other than fire. So it's good to stretch, and Orks give a lot of room for variety as well, I think. So suggestions are appreciated :D thanks all!
  21. GW, Hive Prime. Custom.

    Tyranid Hive Prime with headswap:
  22. GW Necron Ghostark

    So finally got good pics of this, it's a Ghostark for my son Playboy's Necron army, a GW model thingy, for 40K.
  23. Did this Hive Tyrant yesterday/today. He is magnetized to be able to switch between legs and wings. The 'not alien' head is from Epoch Studioz. Overall, I am really happy with this one. Edit: Updating the post with the based miniature. It has some drool, now, too! Alternate version, with all magnetized parts switched out:
  24. Genestealer Matriarch, GW

    Finished this fellow last Thursday during a GW painting event: Update: Made this fellow a sort of display base, so he can adorn my shelf in all his splendor. :P
  25. Haemonculus

    Here's a piece that I painted up for a Dark Eldar force that I've been adding to over the years. My client had the idea of having him missing most of his skin. I'm definitely keen on adding gruesome details like that to minis. So, here he is:
