    Cadian Imperial Guard

    I've made no secret about my opinions on Games Workshop. Though my painting box is full of their miniatures they were always bought second and sometimes third hand (I never wanted GW to get any of my money). Even my previous Cadians were bought from my local games store that has no affiliation with GW (I also know those sets and blisters came with the business when it was bought almost twenty years ago). Now I find myself in the unique position of building a Cadian army. My wife and I used to play weekly in D&D Adventure League but with the birth of our first child it looks like that won't be possible (We want to continue gaming at our current store but its a bit of drive and the kid is at the rolling stage so she doesn't want to be held or sit in her seat; she wants to be on the floor and we all know what gameshop floors are like). I've offered to watch the child so she can go or to switch off each week but she only wants to go together. Gaming together has always been part of our relationship, and she doesn't want to lose that. I couldn't agree more, its good to share a hobby with your spouse. That's when our friends started trying to recruit us to play Warhammer 40K with them. At first I was resistant but our friends get together often to play and in our area its always possible to find a game (Depending on the size it can be played fairly quickly in comparison to D&D too). After some discussion we decided 40K would give me something to paint, but it would also give us both something to play and eventually something to play together. Which brings us to this new project. Since I figured watching me assemble miniatures would be pretty boring I'm starting this thread right before I prime them. So here is most of my assembled starter set (I've got quite a few cheap sets of bits arriving over the next couple weeks and I'm not exactly sure what unit I'd like to create next so that's why I have so many unfinished figures). I'm still not a big fan of GW but having an excuse to see our friends more often is pretty nice. In a way we're kinda trading one gaming group for another (that sounds pretty mean but I think you understand what I'm saying).

    Ensign Roxy "Hotshot" Malone

    Presenting Ensign Roxy "Hotshot" Malone, the colour scheme test Voidsman for my Starstriders set. I think she came out pretty well, and the group should look rather striking, when I eventually get the rest painted. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

    The Starstriders!

    Starting something new, the Starstriders! A band of space adventurers, travelling the cosmos, fighting aliens and stuff. You've got the three ladies:- The deadly assassin, the Rogue Trader boss lady and the helpful medic (they all have proper names, but I sold their accompanying rulebooks so I can't look them up any more). And the three guys:- The leader of the Voidsmen, the mad scientist and the guy with the big gun. And finally, the expendable fodder Voidsmen:- Haven't gotten too far with the painting yet:- I'm starting with a Voidsman (or Voidswoman in this case), to get an idea of what I want their uniforms to look like. At the moment I've painted her jacket Dark Green with a Cork Brown>Red Orange trim and I'm trying to figure out how to shade and highlight it.

    Brokk Grungsson

    Presenting Brokk Grungsson, an important character in the Kharadron Overlords (steampunk, sky pirate dwarfs) faction in the game Warhammer: Age of Sigmar. Had this one in the Cupboard of Unfinished Thingstm for a while, and I'm glad it's finally done. Bit disappointed with the base though. I wanted to give him a reason for wearing his blimp-suit, so I have him flying over a large pool lava, but I don't think it really works, it needs more texture or some rocks to break up all the yellow or something. As always any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  6. More Stuff I did on Summer Vacation. PingosHusband gave me a set of Citadel "Sisters of the Thorn", female wood elves riding what are supposed to be deer, I think (although they have solid hooves and their antlers attach weirdly). Anyhow, they look pretty cool. The set also could make up some hunky shirtless male riders in creepy antlered masks, and I ended up making one of those along with four of the females. And then there were parts left over. Sooo ... I had enough to make one more full male torso and one female torso lacking hair (and three male torsos that need hair and right arms, but that's a project for another day ...). Well, what can you do with a torso? Obviously, make centaurs (horse or spider) out of them. I lugged out my bin o' Bones and found 77264: Female Centaur sculpted by Sandra Garrity (There's a male centaur too, but interestingly the female "horse" part is larger and more robust than the male.) and 77182: Arachnid Archer sculpted by Gene van Horne. I ruthlessly sliced off the human torso from the centaur and used a pin because I'm not sure how well epoxy adheres to Bones. I carved the waist of the spider body a little to fit the elf torso, but I didn't take pictures of that. This is the figure fitted in but not yet glued. There wasn't any hair for this torso, so her face is only a hollow mask glued to the neck at a tiny contact point at the back of the chin, fragile and just a little creepy. I mixed up some epoxy and drizzled little comma-shapes onto parchment paper, let them dry, and peeled them off. Then I mixed more epoxy and blobbed it into the back of the elf's skull and added dried epoxy commas until it looked more or less like hair. Here are the two of them done:
  7. The unrelenting, swarming, terrifying tide that is known as the Skaven... Also known as "skrit skrit of death-death to all, but maybe save a few bakers as they make delicious cookies and cupcakes!" I'm playfully blaming a wolf for this thread, but it's a different one for a change. This time it was @Chaoswolf! This is going to be a looooong project. Arguably it already is, since most of the initial contents of this army were purchased over a decade ago, but I have a tentative goal in mind of "fully finished by 2020" which gives me a year and eight months to work on it in between all my other projects - a goal I hope I can manage. It was originally supposed to be assembled six weeks after I purchased the 25th anniversary army box, and then there'd be a campaign, prizes and whatnot, but being stupidly busy with work kind of prevented that from happening back in the day and I wound up backing out of that event/tournament. Later on, Isle of Blood was added in. Either way, I've always wanted to have a big, GINORMOUS HORDE OF DOOM, and the Skaven definitely portray such in my eyes Always did like their lore, and more importantly, the models, the fluff, and the fact they're murderous, backstabbing buggers! Eshin has always been my favourite, but Skryre is definitely a close second due to their shiny shiny blasty murder-kill anything in their path. Why the focus on Pestilens though? Well, truth be told, any good kill-kill stab-stab from the Skaven is going to be comprised of the various different factions, but the biggest part is that their models are some of the most eye catching to me. That and I already had a bunch of them, so I figured why not! Their siege weapons are also rather lovely, at least the Plague Furnace. I'm still debating about the Plagueclaw, but for now I still plan on having two in there for symmetry and versatility At the moment, I only have about half (or so) the units I'd like to have, but I'll work on acquiring the rest over time. What do I have right now? (Spoilers added to be friendlier to mobile users) (So.... Assuming I counted correctly, we're talking 201 238 minis) And what's being added in? (So.... about another 243 small models, 2 small siege units, and 11 siege weapons/behemoth added in bringing that to a grand total of 444 481 small units, 2 smaller siege units, and 11 large siege weapons. It's 454 491 small models total if you factor in the Mordheim models I probably have kicking around somewhere o_O) Just for my own calculations, I'm writing down in a spoiler what I think will wind up being the entirety of the army... ...I kind of figured that if I'm going to go in, I'm going to go ALL IN. Sure, it's technically an army that's illegal to field due to too many leaders (18/8 if you include the on foot Grey Seer, 17 if you don't), and too many behemoths (7/5) with the new AoS rules, but it will give me that nice variety I crave, and flexibility to play in pretty much any size game. It will also look downright insane on a shelf once it's done I suspect. Technically, it's also a 8,940 point army as currently written, but that's just using info from the Warscroll builder, and not making use of any Battalions, which could theoretically change the composition of this army, and have me add (or possibly subtract) models. Come to think of it, odds are I'll wind up taking a good look through the 9th age's website to get ideas for various other miniatures, because while this is technically an army I might field, I just want a nice, varied horde, and nothing says varied quite like adding in minis from several other companies ...Doubly so when some of their miniatures are a lot nicer looking (like say, the Jezzails, or even rat swarms). For example, Otherworld, Reaper, and Windmaster all have models that can easily fit in ~_^ Now... No good thread is without pictures, so here's a part of the reason why the next several orders from Reaper are going to have a decent amount of bases in them... ^That there is what I've been able to round up so far that isn't still in a sealed box. At least most are assembled, but there's that one annoying thing... They're all on 20mm square bases, and Age of Sigmar tends to prefer them being on round bases (most being 25mm, but some being other sizes)... Not to mention the fact i tend to prefer circular bases anyways. Thankfully, I used superglue for almost all of them, so that will help IMMENSELY. I'll also be doing up bases for each and every one of them, which is probably going to chew through a decent amount of my various supplies, given that the last time I did up some bases (earlier this week) I chewed through half of the 200g of Magic Sculpt I have (although to be fair, there were 2x 60mm and 16x 25mm bases for my Tau, even if it was just the broken concrete stamp it still uses up a good amount of putty). I also greatly prefer the nice lip that Reaper's bases have, because it lets me try and have the added in designs be relatively flush with the "expected" height, unless I otherwise plan on having them be higher (like say, for heroes and/or leaders) ^ So here we have the bases for what was originally going to be my Censer Bearers, but it turns out those are supposed to be on 32mm bases, so instead these will be for my Poison Wind Globadiers, which rather works out because those haven't been based yet ...Happy fox to say the least. ^The top most 40mm base is for my Warlord (which will feature a decent more rubble on top of those cobblestones), while the other two are for two of my Rat Ogres. The 18x 25mm splintered deck bases are for my Night Runners. When I make the other 22x bases, I'll make sure to have more raw material so the details don't get squished when stamping. Most of them turned out alright, but some of them you could tell I didn't have enough and/or really should have had the stamp against something solid instead of my fingertips. Up first will be the poison wind globadiers.... Once I clear up a bit of room on my cutting mat anyways, I kind of have a bunch of gnolls, kitsunes, and minotaurs taking up that space right now ^_^;;;;;;
  8. I have a ridiculously long running project that I work on when I have the whim. I have been using Eldar guardian arms, weapons, and helmets with the old jetbike rider leather jacket torso and high elf archer legs to create Eldar Corsairs. I'm hoping that starting a thread will motivate me to get back to this but if nothing else I'm pretty happy with the conversions so at least others can see them. Here's the first batch of pics (this is the ones I happen to already have pictures for).
  9. Finally got around to take pictures of my Warhammer diorama. I entered it into a local competition, and was lucky enough to win the Warhammer category. Thanks to everyone who wrote a comment in the WIP thread. Link here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/81383-warhammer-diorama-pic-heavy/ ..Sorry for the overload of pictures! -could'nt help myself.. Although on these pictures I can see many mistakes, I am quite happy with it. Hope you enjoy it, and as always any comment, critiq or question is welcome.

    My Undead Army (so far)

    Right, I hemmed and hawed over the best way to show these off, and sadly, ultimately decided on linking to an external album, rather than uploading 70 some odd photos to Reaper's servers. I've shown off several of these minis/units before over time, but I just got a new phone with a way nicer camera and I thought it would be nice to get the whole thing documented. I'm nowhere near done, I have always enjoyed painting the Undead and will likely continue to add to it forever, but here it is in it's current state. It's based for Kings of War, includes tons of Reaper, Mantic, GW, and a few other manufacturer's in small quantities as well. Enough talk, here's the album: https://photos.app.goo.gl/CrTmoTDLmJte6agt9 And here's a sample excerpt: It's about 5 years +/- in the making but includes some minis from my previous war gaming days as well, I think all were repainted though. EDIT: Apologies, some of the models are dustier than I realized. Next time I get shots I'll dust first. There's even a small cobweb on one, but that kinda looks awesome. The dust not so much. Thanks for looking!

    Brood Lord (input requested)

    Hi Gang, Normally I would ask my brother for input, but we are each painting the same mini and not revealing them to each other until we're done. I'm curious mostly about the claws, color choice and potentially doing a purple tint. Thoughts? Any other comments or areas that people think need work feel free to chime in. Parts that are not yet completed are most of the "vent" things on the arms and legs so ignore that, and the skulls at the base need work too, and the stuff in his hands, and some of the hand and elbow skin transitions... to name but a few. Thanks in advance, HMP

    Elf guy on horse

    I had this guy done for a while, except the weather didn't really allow for a good photo. Now that the weather was somewhat better, I quickly took some. I am happy how the gems came out (thought you can't really see them in the photo). All the black was painted by washing a black and white surface with Indanthrone blue (PB60). The armour was made by using vallejo liquid metal red gold (for highlights) and copper (for shadows)

    The City Guard

    So I am not usually into painting a lot of games workshop, but my girlfriend used to play Bretonnia and had a lot of guard-types left over. I needed a good 10 guys to function as city guards/bandits/smugglers/etc. in my campaigns. So I painted them up, quick like. They are not works of art, but they work very well on the table. Here are some shots.

    Sepulchral Guard (Games Workshop)

    I did these guys a few months ago. I challenged myself when I painted these guys and avoided using washes. I'm very happy with the turnout. I'd love to hear what you all think.
  15. I don't usually paint Warhammer miniatures, but there is a local painting contest which has very specific rules so I figured why not. I've never entered a painting contest before, so there is no time like the present. I've decided to carry on with my experiments in object source lighting and apply wht I've learned so far in this project. One of the big challenges will be doing the OSL in the metallic armour of the knight. I've never tried that before. The two figures are "Neave Blacktalon" and "Wight King". Here is my planned layout. The white line is to align their line of sight so they are looking each other in the eyes. The source of light will be a big glowing rune on the ground in between them. I chose these two figures becuase they both have cloaks that are blowing in the wind, but they are blowing in opposite directions. That means that when they are facing each other, the wind direction is consistent. I intend to make the grass be bent over in the same direction as well. The wind is blowing from the wight towards the knight. I am very tempted to name this project "Fus Ro..." That might not be genre appropriate though. I had some in progress shots of the base but I lost them somewhere. Drag and drop error, probably. I used milliput to make the rocky base. I used the base of another rocky miniature to make impressions to give it texture. The wight's foot is incorporated into his base, so I incorporated his whole base into the milliput mass. I sculpted the runes/rock circle into the milliput and then added sand to it. In the crevices. I made my first big mistake at this stage. I added the grass tufts too. I should have waited until after I primed the whole base and then painted the ground where the grass would be attached. My thinking was that the grass would look better if it was highlighted with the OSL effect in the same way as everything else. However, it has proven very difficult to get paint through the grass tufts to make them shadowed underneath. Other than that, I like the way it turned out. I prepainted the whole base using the stone greys triad. I highlighted the base with the greys and added white to get the areas that would be hit by the light from the rune to be brightest. Today I spent the morning painting the OSL effects onto the base. This lets me make sure the OSL on the figures and on the base will line up with each other and also be the same colours. I am using these for the OSL effect: Here is where I am at so far. The figures are beside the base on their cork handles so you can see how they will line up eventually. I need to darken the areas around the outside edge of the base a lot more still. It is actually a lot darker than it look in the picture already. I added progressively Nightshade Purple and Brown Liner to the Stone Grey for the shadow areas on the base.

    GW Imperial Guard Sentinel

    Compared to some of their other models the 40K Imperial Sentinel is ALMOST a reasonable price. So for some reason I decided to do one in World War 2 German camouflage:

    Slimux and Mulch WIP

    For my birthday, I received a mini I'd had my eye on for a while, Slimux and Mulch! Slimux:- He's a gardener, a demon gardener. And Mulch:- Is his loyal plough-snail. Started on Mulch today:- His shell was based with Hexed Lichen, then had drybrushes of 1:1 Hexed Lichen/Warlord Purple > Warlord Purple > 1:1 Warlord Purple/Squid Pink > Squid Pink, and then I painted Pure Black into the cracks and deep recesses. Finally I glazed over the whole thing with some thinned Blue Ink. As usual I used too much Glaze Medium, so I'm going to work on Slimux while it dries, if it dries.

    Games Workshop, Tyranids

    Here are my Tyranids from the Games Workshop board game Lost Patrol.
  19. I'm starting to think that I like converting more than painting, been doing a lot more of it recently. I'm liking the Adeptus Mechanicus models from 40k, and got a few of them. While I probably won't have an army per se, I did get quite a few of the ones I thought coolest. Been playing around with the idea of an Order of the Sisters of Battle converting to worship of the Omnissiah, more specifically Moirates. (Unfortunately there's not much lore on what the Moirae Schism was, despite it lasting two millennia, because it didn't really involve Space Marines. ) First up is a Sydonian Dragoon Knight (dragoons are mounted infantry, not cav!), with the servitor converted to a skitarii pilot. The (literal) backseater had more work than just a headswap, I had to lengthen the torso and reposition the right arm to grasp a saddle horn instead of handlebars. The pilot I essentially resculpted the entire torso and added on some of the extra arms from alternate weapon options. Next is a Tech-Priest(ess) Domin[a]. GW lists him at $36(), but with the release of a few boxed sets that include it recently, third-party prices have dropped to something much less ridiculous. I'm not too happy with this conversion honestly, I might give her longer hair or something, we'll see. The axe is bashed together because I wanted that axe arm for another model... I didn't use the chest plate from the Sororitas Terminatrix, and the Sydonian Dragoon came with 5 great head choices, of which I used... none. So, seeing as how the Techpriest Dominus comes with four weapon choices, of which they can take only two, I figured why not kitbash a very different Dominus together. The process for this was much like the "true-scale" or "art-scale" Terminators that several other people have made. Take Terminator bits, lengthen torso and legs, and in my case, build a Mechanicus backpack thing. Some Sicarian Infiltrators are on the way, but the mailman is running late, which means they probably won't arrive until Monday. I'll probably get some Skitarii fairly soon (the same third-party price drop that's affected the Dominus has cut their price in half), and... maybe some Kataphrons? Probably not the Kataphrons, because the conversion I'd want to do to them would throw out 90% of a $50 kit. Hmm, a Knight Armiger Warglaive though...

    The Iron Priest

    Presenting an Iron Priest from the Space Wolf chapter of the Space Marines. As a Space Wolf I know he's supposed to be a light grey, but his armour panels have this lovely hand-beaten metal-like texture to them, so it seemed a shame not to paint them metallic. He then got more and more colourful from there. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

    Sororitas Terminatrix

    It's been far, far too long since I sat down and painted a mini. Too many other life priorities. But anyways... So, I painted a Sisters of Battle terminator, and I decided I wanted her as a mini. Games Workshop does not sell SoB terminators. And so began my long conversion process, spending far too much money on bits for a model that probably can't be ever fielded. A ton of plasticard cementing, ProCreate sculpting, and general hackery later, I came out with this. Proportions are somewhat wonky, but I think they're beyond my capability to fix short of sculpting everything from scratch. Plus GW's proportions have always been wonky, especially for terminators. A coat of primer and I'm feeling better about this whole project already.
  22. I got the (old) Necron "Start Collecting!" box and finally got everything put together. Time to start painting... (There is actually some assembly left to do, but I'm waiting for some magnets. Those are a few weeks out still but I figured I'd get most of the painting done in the meantime and just touch up whatever bits need touched up.)

    GW stormcast liberator

    Went to an intense NNM metal class with Banshee last weekend. we started out with either this guy or a pace marine. I still haven't ever painted space marine. It was a lot of color theory, breaking figures down into simple shapes and knowing the intensity of various paints and inks. Im was not sold enough on the green to carry it over onto the shield, so I just left that as base NMM We also painted a 75mm knight from noctura, but I didin't get anywhere near finishing that one, not sure I ever will....

    GW Battlewagon & Skorchas

    The Skorchas are a smallish buggy like vehicle that doesn't have a model, so I cut down a couple trukks and made my own. The Battlewagon is pretty much stock kit, except I am adding a base (which isn't done yet). Skorchas:
