  1. Let's get Nurgly, Nurgly! Here's the latest reinforcements for the Brotherhood of Rust, devout followers of Grandfather Nurgle. The (un)Holy Accountant, the Tallyman! "This my Power Abacus!" Those dread bodyguards, high in price in both points and dollars, the Deathshroud Terminators! The rustiest of them all, the Blightlord Terminators: The grunts of any Death Guard force, the ever-versatile and never dying Plague Marines!
  2. My last-minute WiP entry for the Iron Sleet Invitational (https://ironsleet.com/2017/10/24/invitational-firing-on-all-cylinders/) THE HERESY OF CALLAHN 7 How many years had it been since the rebellion first began on Callahan 7? For unknown decades, traitorous PDF forces lay siege to the palace of their former leader, a vile governor who thought of little but profits and nothing for safety. His shortcuts lead to a doomed populace; the atmosphere poisoned and its people dying by the acid mines and foundries that the planet was known for. The rebellion stayed at a stalemate for years, with the superior numbers of the turncoat PDF unable to overcome the superior armory of the few that stayed loyal to the governor. Even once the rebels opened the acid mines and foundries, and freed the twisted and broken mutants that manned the world beneath, the palace remained sealed. Then, the Brothers of Rust came. Their grand fleet looming overhead, the few Heretic Astartes who touched planetside turned the tide of the battle in scant days. The governor's palace fell; he and his servants bodies strung from the walls, the first of many sacrifices to the Dark Powers. Many of the PDF went with the Brothers, joining them in their endless crusade. For those who stayed, the Brothers left behind the Speakers of His Voice. These twisted preachers gave the former drudge new hope, and told them not of a distant corpse-Emperor but of a Grandfather who loved them, always and ever. Grandfather had saved them, Grandfather had uplifted them. His love had set them free. When word of the Thorn Moons and their strange wonders came, the Speakers saw their true calling; a lovely addition to Grandfather's Garden, a gift to be offered for the many favors he had bestowed upon them. They went to the mines, they went to the cities, they went and called forth the faithful. The governor had left behind many wonders; forges the faithful had toiled at their whole lives, and grand spaceships. It was providence.
  3. Lidless Eye Hobbies: Plague Zombies!

    Started quite some time ago, before the more copyright-friendly Poxwalkers were introduced; here come the Plague Zombies! It's okay that they're different, Grandfather Nurgle loves us all. Plus, Zombies seem more appropriate for Halloween.
  4. Lidless Eye Hobbies: A Nurgly Orctober

    Praise be to Nurgle! Another Orctober complete, and we're all safe and sound, painting projects finished. Time for a short rest... "Hey, you lot hear that?" "They're coming to get you, Orkra..." "Join us, Orkra...Grandfather loves you, too..." Orks can be Poxwalkers, too, ya know! Even Gork (and maybe Mork) can't help ya now. Flyboy: The Catcher: The Spiker! Grimace! Smiley! Orks+Zombies in O(r)ctober...doubly appropriate for the season!
  5. 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!
  6. Lidless Eye Hobbies: Let's Get Nurgly

    After some time, I finally wrapped up my two sets of Death Guard from the new Warhammer 40,000 starter set, "Dark Imperium". The entire second set is converted, I'm not a fan of clones in my armies. The rotting masses: The Lord of Contagion, no real work done to him other than the paint: Rotbringer Goth'ma, my count-as Typhus, built from the Lord of Contagion: The Malignant Plaguecaster, another standard build: And an Icon Bearer, converted from the Plaguecaster: The Putrid Blightbringer: A Sorcerer conversion from the Blightbringer. He could also count as Necrosius: The Plague Champion: He's the only non-Poxwalker who I didn't convert for the second copy. I set him aside, as there's another Plague Champion coming in the First Strike starter set. Maybe he'll be useful for one of the new entries when the Death Guard codex comes out.
  7. A few Chaos Cultists

    I grabbed some Chaos Cultists from the Dark Vengeance box from a buddy of mine. Don't know what I'm going to use them for. Maybe Shadow War eventually. Anyway, didn't want to spend a lot of time on them so I just spray primed with the AP color primers then applied some basic base costs. I finished them off with the AP strong tone quickshade followed by the anti shine. I think they turned out pretty well. thanks for looking. Comments and critiques are always appreciated.
  8. I have built a massive power plant terrain piece for use in various science fiction wargames such as 40K, Shadowar Armageddon, Necromunda, Rogue Stars, etc. I used a good portion of three Pegasus Hobbies 4909 - Power Plant Construction Set. This kit has a ridiculous number of parts that can be assembled in a huge number of variations almost as easily as Lego. I have a large number of pipes left over but no more generators and wall panels. I do have some floor panels left over and can remove the generators and stand them on those if I need freestanding smaller pieces or more room in the main piece. Indeed, with a bit of effort I could disassemble the entire thing and reassemble it differently (though I don't see that happening). I intend to mount this to a piece of thin MDF for ease of transport. May eventually paint it but frankly it looks pretty good as it is. Here are photos of the plant from above and from each side. Also included are two of the generators popped out and placed on extra floor panels and a shot of one of them by itself.
  9. Aku-chan paints a Painboy

    Taking a break from working on my Kingdom Death stuff to paint this:- Choose this one because I need to learn to paint without leaning forward so much, so a big, chunky dude seemed like the best place to start. I'll make a start on the skin tomorrow, if I'm up to it.
  10. Studs for the Stud Throne! LEGO Warhammer 40k
  11. Here's a batch of heavy hitters I've done up for an upcoming Warhammer 40k: Kill Team campaign. The Obliterators and Terminator are a mixture of GW parts, and the scatter terrain is Deadzone and the Starship Engine from Reaper Bones.
  12. The Cyborg

    Presenting the Cyborg, a soldier re-engineered to fight in battlefields that would be lethal to a normal man. Really, he's a paint scheme test for my small band of Skitarii Rangers from Warhammer 40k. Came out pretty good too, even if I did utterly fail to paint him up as grim and gritty as I wanted (apparently that's just not how I paint). As always, any comments and criticisms are warmly received.
  13. Wolf Lord Logan Grimnar

    I painted up this Logan Grimnar a little while ago. He's the old metal version- from before he was moved to Resin, then later re-sculpted and put on a flying wolf drawn chariot. I'm still fond of him on foot, and the dynamic pose this mini has really works for him. Ultimately, the challenge on this mini was helping all of the various tiny details to pop, and still keep his face a strong center of interest. I think I accomplished this through my use of color (the warmest spots are on his face). I believe that my only regret here is that we didn't get a photo of the freehand on his shoulder before we mailed him off. Anyway, here he is.
  14. Here we have some Realm of Chaos figures that have recently been released from the Purgatory of a storage case and revived. These were some of the early figures I got. Bloodletters of Khorne from the original Slaves to Darkness volume of Realm of Chaos. Painted back in the day and touched up several times over the years. Pulled out of a storage case a couple of weeks ago to be rebased and lightly touched up again. The middle guy looks a bit odd in the front-on photo, but the Conga-line profile shot helps him to make more sense. These early figures might not have been the greatest of sculpts, but they had a twisted physiology that made them work really well as Daemons. I'm glad that GW has returned to a design close to the original with the recent plastics after their iterations as cosplaying budybuilders and spiky beastmen in the interim. I never had many of the original Bloodletters, and still don't. Getting them up to an even 8 (or 10, or 12) is "on the list" but they're not cheap or easily found on eBay. Back in the day, a Night Horror Demon (I guess he could be a gargoyle, but the trident is telling) got roped into the gang and has been a part of the small unit ever since. I somehow ended up with a broken Bloodletter torso, and so ended up grafting it to a spare pair of Chaos Warrior legs I had lying around after an uninspired Bear Centaur conversion. The arm is off an early Jugger rider. At some point these guys will hit the table again. I'll use Abyssal rules for KoW, though it's doubtful that I'll run a full daemonic army, and instead ally them with "The Herd" (Beastmen) and whatever Non De Plume that Warriors of Chaos end up with. They might be willing to ally with Nurgle, but not with the hated Slannesh or the duplicitous Magicians of Nurgle. I'm sure they'll also end up on a 40k table, after I get some more forces up to scratch and work out which version or combination of the rules my group will play with.
  15. Lidless Eye Hobbies in the Year 40,000

    My most recent painting focus was on some randomish 40k and sci-fi stuff, aimed more at RPGs than wargames. Unfortunately, the crazy heat down here has me tackling my light source, and some shots are better than others. First up are the more individual characters, including a face recently returned to the silver screen:
  16. Eldar Jetbikes

    So in the tradition of not finishing anything and moving onto something new, my pathfinder dragon has been untouched for ages now. I moved onto 40k as my friends started playing, it awakened something inside me and I found a bunch of Eldar (the master race) on ebay for a really cheap price. They were already painted this incredibly bright orange for some reason (hence the cheap price) but last weekend I found this... http://www.dreamalittlebigger.com/post/galaxy-easter-eggs.htmland thought. Wow, those easter egg shells look almost exactly like Jetbike's. They're not perfect because I'm not spending too long on them, there's 10 bikes to paint so I don't want to spend 4 or 5 hours on each one. But I'm really pleased with how they are turning out. this is an example of the bright orange they were before. Edited to add in a picture with the 4th rider finished.
  17. 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.
  18. 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?
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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...

  25. 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.
