Lutetia Same when I had to put the box on the back... Same when I had to decorate the box and make it Orky... I kept stopping for weeks at a time just worried about doing anything wrong and irriversable. Not to mention that at the start I was like "7 months... thats PLENTY of time".

Azwaz Well its been so long the original crummy photos I took with a crappy camera arnt even here anymore, but 7 years on my friend finally took some decent photos since we started the Blog. Its not finished by hopefully as the kids get a bit older and we have more free time he will get around to finishing it.

Dakingofchaos Awesome work dude, thanks for sending the link! This is actually brilliant! Nice work!

piemaster Wow. What a great birthday present. I am really jealous. It looks really nice [+rep]. I love looted tyranid monstrous creatures, they're so funny when they're done properly. I would like to see it painted and your other efforts so I'll follow this thread hoping to hear more. Do put links in here if you have any other work and then I'll see it more easily.

Azwaz Otherthings in the pipeline include...

A flying Carnifex variant (started before 5th Ed rules)
A Thousand Sons Baneblade (to be used as standard or special custom rules)
A Bloodletter Herald (for a friend)
A Killteam of Ork Tyranid Hybrids
Some lightly converted Thousand Sons Terminators
Craploads of scenery

...and probably some other stuff in a box somewhere that I'll come accross and thing... oh yeah, I forgot about that. I really need to get back into painting though because I havent done any for so long.

Kharnas Sick sick crazy awesome work, you really managed to capture a shambling hulk feeling without making it so busy it looks like a trash heap.

Whats next ?

Blue Yeah, I do that worrying thing too. Sometimes I totally forget what I was working on I leave it for so long.

Azwaz Yeah, 7 months... It was just an idea back then. I ended up getting 5 new carnifex's out of it though. I just wanted a body, so I bid on a load on E-Bay... and won them all . I didnt work on it that often, other projects on the go at the same time, and a few times when I was scared to touch it. Like once I'd made the 3 arms... I was worried about ruining it by putting them on! Same when I had to put the box on the back... Same when I had to decorate the box and make it Orky... I kept stopping for weeks at a time just worried about doing anything wrong and irriversable. Not to mention that at the start I was like "7 months... thats PLENTY of time". I finished it about a week before his birthday, through that week I was organising the illustration and page layout and it got laminated 10 minutes before I gave the whole thing to him.

I know its not something standard and 'fluffy' (took me while to figure out what people meant by that!), but I never intended it to be. I wrote rules for it, commissioned a friend who illustrates to do a picture for it (the face of which is in the top left of this post) and gave it a layout like the book... complete with origins/background. The manager at the local store even laminated it for me

Everyone keeps saying how much they want to see it painted, but I garentee that no one wants to see it painted as much as me!

Thanks everyone, I really apprecatiate everyones kind words. I was really worried about posting my work online for the first time. So seriously guys, thanks very much.

jfvz I saw the tital that thought "what the hell??? someone must be smoking something seriously nasty"

Then i had a look at the pics...

and all caring about the non-fluffyness of it went out the window. Its a fricken awesome model. Realy want to see it when its all painted. It also gives me ideas (hybrid half-mechanical tyrannofex anyone?)

Blue WOW! Only 7 months! Great work dude, your friend must have been speechless.
