I finally got the DA vets box and terminator shoulder pads in the mail today, only took 26 days. Got some schol work to do so I'll be getting started on these tomorrow. I just have to remember to take pics of the before.

Well, I very much like the painting on the pair - but the sculpt of the Doomseer looks terrible - it's badly proportioned and lacks detail. Frankly, it isn't worthy of the job you've done.

Kabal of the Poisoned Vines have now a Heavy Support choice painted up.

I am surprised that I managed to complete this so soon into the month. Not like me one bit.

Before shots


Completed shots






Hope that you like the free hand on the banner and starboard panel. I decided that I would put the Kabal symbol on the panel instead of the sail due to the different sections on the sail.

After painting the Model I am inclined to agree with your evaluation of the Model. Before painting the Model I was truly in love with it. But the lack of over all Detail, not to mention the dis proportioned legs has left me feeling less than how I started. I'll still be using the model in my Army, but I believe that it will be regulated to a Warlock position instead of the Center Stage as my "counts as Eldrad" as I had intended when I bought her.

And thank you for the compliment on my painting

I still can't over how smoothly you get your purples to turn out. And I truley love your edging work!

I paint Ulthwe myself, I know it's not as easy as it can often look.
I'm glad that I managed to not offend you at all in criticising it - it was purely about the model, as I said.
Dunno why you'd want to 'count as' Eldrad though, he's a classic model!!

Zero Effect,

What was your method, if you don't mind me asking? Your purples are extremely regular.

Mostly cause I wanted to go along with the whole fluff line of Eldrad being dead, while not giving up the awesome Eldrad game abilities.

I am now back from sunny California and I hope eveyone has got lots of painting done.

Tonight I shall start compiling the March entries, with a view to getting these posted before the end of the week.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.
