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!
WARNING NUDITY so LINKS.
Since Photbucket got Evil I linked my Putty and Paint Page here:
This is my first take on a bust. It's from Kabuki 1/6 scale.
Since she's a Not Red Sonja, I gave her warpaint like Conan has.
I tried a freehand tattoo, it's supposed to be a stylized Dragon/Snake eating his own tail.
I had loads of fun painting her.
Here Is my WIP if interested.
By itself this figure is 02863: Female Werewolf by James van Schaik, but to be clear I got mine as part of the set 03495: DHL Classics: Lady Lycanthropes. I have two copies, but of course they are sold singly.
It's an evocative little figure, with a slim build and fur suggestive of long hair. The tail is a separate piece which was too thin for my pinning skills, so it is simply glued on.
I decided to paint these two in realistic wolf style. - That is, colored as real wolves would be, though distorted.
After cleaning up mold lines, I prepared them by priming thinly with Titanium White and washing over with Burnt Umber.
I also threw a quick green on the bases mixed from Yellow Oxide, Hansa Yellow and a small amount of Carbon Black (yellow + black is a fun and unexpected way to make bright greens!).
Those broccoli bases caused me endless trouble. Note the tiny white specks on them? Those are tiny pits where the paint didn't take. I will eventually come to spend all sorts of time poking with specially thinned paint and tiny brushes trying to eliminate those white spots.
Wanting to paint a bust for a long time, never had the nerve.
In order to participate in the 54mm Challenge I decided to do a bust too.
Kabuki Miniatures: 1/6 scale KY-RA ( a NOT Red Sonja).
I will link the nude shots,since one of her breasts peeks through the armor.
I have cut up an old plaster base for her.
