  1. I finished the piece by giving him a base. I'm still not 100% on this skin color. Or the carapace. Or the NMM. But I still think he looks cool.
  2. Starting early last year, I fell off the Warhammer-Free bandwagon and started picking up boxes for a new Genestealer Cult army...which was my favorite army from "back in the day." Those boxes (and boxes, and boxes...) sat languishing for nearly a year before I cracked open a selection and glued them together. I tried to do a new (to me) style of painting, and just couldn't grasp it. I should have worked on some test models that I didn't care about first. Anyway, that gap between expectation and reality stalled the project and I eventually just decided to continue doing things the way I had been. But that meant I'd either have to redo all the minis I'd started, or replace them...GW being GW, and with the history of diabetes in my family meaning I'm likely to need both kidneys, meant repainting. Which brings us here. I need a change from HeroQuest, so it's time for the Genestealer Cult to arise! I've only got a couple "before" pictures that represent the jumping off point. These were all base coat and wash stage. And I just couldn't process it. The wash was patchy, the colors didn't look the way I wanted, etc. This probably could have been salvaged, but I just hit the wall and "couldn't." So they sat. Starting last week, I've been pumping my time into making the upgrades. Some things are better, others aren't. Not better doesn't mean "worse" just that it's not "better." This will be a WIP log for the entire army (currently 4,000 points worth), not individual units. That list is extensive. Currently 1+ of everything in the GSC model range (with multiple Combat Patrols and Start Collecting boxes) excepting any Brood Brothers (Imperial Guard/Astra Militarum) units. IF I get that far, that will be a whole 'nother thing of loyal, absolutely not renegade, guard who are all totally not mutants and whose cult of the (four armed) Emperor is absolutely not heretical. They're all normal there. The first round of pictures is rough: it was late, I was tired, etc. We start with the Patriarch: I've gotten the carapace 2/3 of the way redone. I started with Corporeal Shadow with the intent of using Worn Navy and Soft Blue to bring it up a bit, but there's just not enough difference between CS and WN to justify it. So I just used Soft Blue over the Corporeal Shadow and will use Heather Blue on the highlights. Heather Blue is actually a good match for the color I originally used on my Purestrain Genestealers from the original army. The red fleshy bits are currently Bloodstain Red. The spines and claws are still in need of work, as is the base. That will be coming soon enough. That brings us to the Maga/Magus and the Kelermorph (a rootin', tootin', three-armed shootin' alien hybrid). I've only redone the Maga's skin with the Rosy Skin triad. I've touched her brow ridges, and will hit those with Heather Blue to lighten the transition a bit. That dress will remain gold, and the boots will stay red but I'm working on the exact colors. The staff is the one actual piece of base coat and wash that I liked. I might leave that. The Kelermorph has had his flesh redone (Tanned Flesh triad), Bloodstain Red on the fleshy bits under the carapace, and the same Corporeal Shadow, Soft Blue as the Patriarch. His cloak is Uniform Brown, Green Ochre, and Faded Khaki on the "outside" and Stormy Grey, Cloudy Grey, and Rainy Grey on the interior. The trousers, which can't really be seen here, are also Turkey Brown, Uniform Brown, and Green Ochre. The Aberrations are a sort of shock troop--early mutations and experiments unleashed when the time is right. They mostly have Imperial Purple, Amethyst Purple, and a mix of Amethyst Purple and Spectral White for their trousers. The exception is the leader who has Turkey Brown, Uniform Brown, and Green Ochre. The carapace started with Heather Blue and was followed up with Morning After Blues and Ghost White. I've employed the same Tanned Skin, Golden Skin, Rosy Skin and Dark Skin triads that will appear later for the Hybrid Neophytes. The red fleshy bits under the carapace are Red Shadow, Bloodstain Red, and Clotted Red. The red Aberration is Bloodstain Red, Clotted Red, and Carnage Red. The grips on the weapons are done up in Deep Ocean, Marine Teal, and Surf Aqua which is a surprisingly adequate version of Makita's blue... More coming "soon!" Which brings us to the Hybrid Neophytes, the backbone of the army (seriously, I'm going to end up with about 120 of these guys--some with shotguns, some with slug throwers). The basics have already been described: standard flesh triads, uniform colors, the same blue on the heavy weapons, etc. The armor is Aged Pewter and I'll be using something to give a bit of a different base but I'm not sure quite what. It will stay mostly the Aged Pewter, though, to give a different vibe than standard silver colors. The trousers are the same (Turkey Brown, Uniform Brown, Green Ochre), and the jackets/shirts are Uniform Brown, Green Ochre, and Faded Khaki. The belts and straps are Green Ochre and Faded Khaki. Working with the same few colors has helped keep a unifying look and kept me from being too bogged down in the infinite details on the models. I plan on keeping the red trim, but I'm not certain which red it will be.
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. I noticed some 40k stuff posted here, and wanted to show off these conversions I made from amazing bits; previously created by Epoch Studios. The miniatures below are used in our Necromunda games, and in Tyranid Attack. An older board game release:
  6. Continuing on with the Febuary challenge goals I set myself, (painting at least one of each from the following categories: Reaper Bones, Oathsworn, All Quiet of the Martian Front, Warhammer Fantasy, Warhammer 40.000, Kings of War, Deadzone, DreadBall, Mars Attacks, Shadows of Brimstone, Sedition Wars, Drake, Grendel Productions something or other, and to finish something that currently stands around half-done on the shelf of shame), I have done a few minis over the weekend, As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. Here goes for Warhammer 40.000: oh yes, obvious reference to the Genestealer’s true inspiration there… A Space Hulk Tyranid Genestealer. Yes I am fudging a bit by calling this a Warhammer 40.000 mini, as it actually it is from the boardgame Space Hulk. But it is perfectly good for 40k as well, so there. This is an extremely speedy speedpaint, A bit sloppy, but that can be rectified by spending just a little more time. all in all, this is really quick to do: black undercoat, brown drybrush, grey drybrush details, two tone grey claws, teeth and stripes on head. Gloss varnish on head and claws. Base drybrushed steel, then reddish brown and washed with darktone ink. Done. Effectively maybe 4-5 minutes painting time. 15 Including waiting for the gloss varnish and ink to dry It should be perfectly possible to have the whole load of 22 Genestealers done in a couple of hours. We will test that assumption, maybe for next months resolution (I am thinking aliong the lines "finishing some squads that have been started")
