  1. In the cold wastes of the North, the followers of the gods of Chaos gather in their thousands. Hordes of barbaric marauders and armor-clad warriors pour forth from the bleak wastelands to wage war against the soft-bellied wastrels who inhabit the rich lands of the south. Daemonic legions advance with them, proof that the Northmen truly are the favored of the gods. ---taken from the Hordes of Chaos army book by Games Workshop. I've always really liked the aesthetic of GW's old Realm of Chaos range of figures ever since I first found some for sale in an old, off the beaten path (and sadl
  2. I'm BACK! Sorry for the long absence. But, I've still been painting and I give you a 200pt Ork Kill Team I painted up and played. These won the best painted award nearly unanimously (I never vote for myself) and sadly went 0 of 3. I though I'd share them here and let everyone know I'm still ok. Group Shot (sorry, camera was really dirty and didn't know it) Some indiviual shots of some of the Orks (not all of them though)
  3. This is a very old miniature, from Games Workshop I think, which I've had sitting on my desk undercoated for years and years. It came in a blister of two versions: this one, and a mounted figure. It was actually the mounted figure I was looking for when I came to finally get around to painting it, but I couldn't find it, so this guy finally got the treatment. It's designed for a plastic slotta-base, which I hate, so I've mounted him on a 22mm washer and built up the ground with GreenStuff. I briefly considered adding some foliage, but that stuff catches the dust like you wouldn't believe,
  4. Late last year I bought a copy of the Lost Patrol game by Games Workshop. In my rush to play the game with my sons we used bones models as proxies. Over Christmas I had some time to look at getting the models together. I must confess the plastic models GW produce are really clean with few mold lines. I managed to get a batch built up ready for painting. These models were then given an undercoat of grey and then I selected the infestation markers to paint my chosen colour scheme. I decided in a fairly traditional colour scheme as this would tie in with the Genestealers.
  5. 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 planne
  6. Another figure from the Thanksgiving paint binge. This is a metal Games Workshop LOTR figure I got in a box of random stuff. I don't know the model number or what set he comes from (if any). I sawed off his original base so I could mount him on one that is the same in style as my other LOTR figures. Painted him in an autumnal color scheme, which turned out to be pretty close to the box art, except for my bright Pumpkin Orange cloak.
  7. So when this model came out I had to have it, as, I suspect, did every other ork player as well. It just screams WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGHHcoughcoughOrk. Anyways, been working on it for about a week? I think. Sadly it is now finished and I have to find a new project :( :( Sadness.
  8. Finished these finally (yes I know the bases on the back ones aren't done yet) but the painting is done :P Just got something like 2 chariots, a boltthrower, a few lords, a unit of Calvary and I think I can pretty call his army done (at least for now). Really trying to get to more CAV and my Jabberwock this week! So messy pic:
  9. Finished the squad for my November Hobby Goals. Been painting like crazy... Just tabletop and though I cut a couple corners, I'm happy with how they came out and they match the ones I painted last year so that's good too (writing down recipes and schemes is a wonderful thing!). Thanks for looking.
  10. Finally got off my tush and did some quick bases for my fabulous space marines. Looking at them now I think the skulls on the backpacks should be silver. But for now I think I'm going to call them done-enough and move on. I'm planning to do more in equally-fabulous colours so if anyone has suggestions for improvements on the next batch I'd love to hear it.
  11. Hi, I'm continuing my random minis painting and I found this gray mini standing out (quite obviously) in my pile of unpainted White Bones. It was clearly not a Bones (I must have gotten it from the dollar bin of my FLGS), so my OCD kicked-in and instead of putting it in another bin, I slapped some paint on it and called it done. I'm not that pleased with it (wasn't really inspired, and gave up on making the eyes pretty after 5 futile attempts), but I'm happy that it is one less mini in the unpainted bin.
  12. I painted this up over the course of one day, yesterday. Curious to see what you guys think! If you're interested in how I made it...process is laid out here: xactoguru.blogspot.ca
  13. A while back I came across a photo of the Games Workshop metal Witch Hunter figure of the fellow carrying an axe in one hand, and a puppet in the other. I knew I had to have one for my Frostgrave collection, as it was such a silly looking model. Luckily, I was able to pick one up on Ebay. The puppet, as it comes with the figure, represents a religious personality with a mitre and staff. I, however, wanted it to be more of a "Mini Me" representation of the puppeteer (obviously driven a little looney from repeated trips into the frozen city). So, I replaced the crooked head of the staff w
  14. My finished Deffkoptas! WIP shots are in my WIP thread if any are interested.
  15. I am tired of painting these things, I love the detail, but I have been painting a khorne army for awhile now and it seems I see them everywhere. too much red to much copper. Only 5 more Blood Reavers to go and I am done. oh well BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!!!!! SKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE!!!!!!! still have to base them but the paint is done.
  16. One the character models for my Ork army - the Painboy - think Mad Doctor and you've got him. (And of course now I see bits I should clean up, or missed sigh)
  17. The Cursed Company was a regiment of Skeletons, Captained by Richter Kreugar (the Damned). They were dogs-of-war (mercenaries) that could be hired by any other Warhammer army, with three exceptions: the Bretonnians the Tomb Kings and the Vampire Counts. I never heard or read an explanation for what they would do with the money they earned. Games Workshop fluff was always a bit dodgy like that. The backstory was that originally Richter was a living human regiment Captain who had some untoward dealings with a Wizard or Necromancer. He ended up, dead, undead, and in possession of a cursed swo
  18. Here are my new were-rats! I wanted to have more than melee so I did a lazy conversion by grabbing some GW zombie bits with spears. I stuck a wooden bead over the spear part and filled it with supper glue. A little paint and viola not to shabby (for the table anyway). I cleaned up the bases a bit after picture time as well . I am working on a scenario with a cult of were-rats worshiping ZBP Abominarat. Should be fun .
  19. Finally finished "Bob" my second Hellpit abomination, which is a large Skaven designed monster for Warhammer fantasy. He's pretty grotesque with a face(s) only a mother could love so of course I think he's adorable. One of those it's so ugly it's cute things. My first Hellpit, Pretty Boy, was lonely so I decided he needed a friend. Had a lot of fun with the skin tones on him, I think I'm getting better overall. I played around with a lot of different tones to try to give him a patchwork appearance - since this thing is essentially a golem, frankenstein type thing. Anyway so I took a to
  20. So these are some of the infantry types I'm working on for my army to play vs. my son's Necrons. Trying for a piratey theme, so I did the bases like a seashore. At least that's the look I'm going for! I did the bases with heavy gel medium, tried to sculpt some wave forms. Then put down a fine layer of sand with PVA and used brown paint and a dark earth wash. Final step before adding water effects was drybrush with iraqi sand (a light khaki colour). For some of the bigger models I plan to try to add a few more details, maybe a shell here or there, driftwood etc.
  21. another chaos mini to the collection. Korgos Kol the general of Khorne's Army. criticism welcomed, ideas welcomed. My wife called the chaos hound a mutant iguana.
  22. So, I'm about to start really painting my Orks for 40k and my theme for them is Pirate - which is going to include a lot of conversions eventually and what not based on nautical ships. Where I'm stuck atm is coming up with a more or less cohesive colour scheme for them. 40K orks are fairly garish but dingy, as they've seen a lot of battles. Reds, Yellows, and Blues are common, pretty much primary colours. Their skin is almost always done up in dark greens. I am going with the greenskin but for an overall colour scheme I just don't know what to do. Some of the guys I've painted with blu
  23. awhile back I posted a pic of a white dragon and explained how I painted it using a wash brush. this was a challenge that I won and received 5 Bloodreavers for my efforts. I have since bought more reavers and plan to build an army dedicated to Khorne the blood god. the painting is fairly easy and if you do it in an assembly line fashion its fairly quick. here are the first 10.
  24. Here's the leader of the loyalist element of the Luna Wolves. He's converted from a Betrayal at Calth figure, so I swapped out his weapons, and a few of his accoutrement as well. I also had to kind of redesign the head area, and I put a new head on him from another space marine. His collar didn't come out quite as well as I'd hoped but it does its job at least (hiding the ugly neck join).
  25. Finished up my Luna Wolf Rhino this morning, several things I wish I'd done better but it's going to have to do for now. Further weathering will be done at the end of my entire army painting so I can try to keep it consistent. Anyway, C&C is heartily welcome!
