Aku-chan paints... Belisarius Cawl

Recommended Posts

Finally managed to make some progress:-

Larry the Skullbot and Cawls hood painted and attached!

Despite the fiddliness of the task, I'm glad I painted these parts separately. Painting Larry after attaching him would have been tough enough, but I think it is actually impossible to paint Cawls head fully assembled.

 

Next job will be to paint the rest of the already attached parts.

Very nice, I like the wide range of colours you have managed to use while keeping it all harmonized. Also lol @ Larry the Skullbot.

That bone color armor looks fantastic, and that model is stunningly complicated... they're approaching Malafaux levels of tiny bits and pieces.

 

Yeah, their minis are definitely starting to come in a lot of pieces (I picked up one of their new Dwarves the other week and, despite being one guy with a steam punk jet pack, he comes in 50 pieces with an assembly booklet), but they still seem easier to assemble than the average Malifaux mini (a goblin should not come in 12+ pieces!).

great work, how did you get the goo effect?

 

It's several layers of PVA glue painted with several coats of Vallejo Fluo Green.

There's probably a much less time consuming method out there, but I couldn't find it!

Almost done, just need to paint the sleeve and handle on axe-arm.

Also need to do something to the glowy coils, they're looking a bit flat.

      This is the bones casting. I wish I had gotten the metal version once I started painting this as it seems some details were lost, especially in the face, and I found it more difficult to paint.

      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...

      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.

      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 ^_^;;;;;;
