A Plastic Crack Addiction. SWs, Knights, DG, Necromunda, and more.
 
Seeing Tossiden's SW log has finally inspired me to start the one I've been meaning to start for a long time. This is going to take some time to complete, as I'm studdying part time and working full time, as well as my commitment to Modern Warfare 2:wink:.

So, lets start with Wolf Lord Alaric Nightrunner.http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF0940.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF0941.jpg

This was going to be my Bjorn, but I think the new FW dread will take that role soon enough.http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF0920.jpg

Hurin the Loud, former pack brother to Grimnar.http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF0688.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF0690.jpg

WG battle leader.http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...DSCF0691-1.jpg

My first batch of scouts.http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF0907.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF0911.jpg

I'm not a fan of the Lucas model, but this guy is going to lead my squad of Sky Claws.http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF0918.jpg

I had a spare Grimnar, so decided to make an alternative WL, or Arjac Rockfist.http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF0932.jpg

Rune Priest Egil Iron-Eye. I'm thinking of giving him the rune staff from the old Njal model.http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF0962.jpg

A drop pod I received from Morfangdakka in one of Heresy's gift exchanges.http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF0959.jpg

Some of my most recent BCs.http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF0958.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF0957.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF0956.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF0955.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF0954.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF0953.jpg


Ulric the Slayer, as painted nearly 20 years ago. I've decided not to strip him, just rebase him and touch him up, as, considering my skill level at the time I'm still proud of the paint job. He'll also be a nod to my old great company.http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF0951.jpg

I also have 15 old termies that I haven't yet decided to strip, a squad of old scouts and some of the old Inquisitors in termie armour that may or may not play a part in the rise of Alaric.

My goal is to have the bulk painted by the end of the summer, but considering I'm working full time and studying part time this may be a tad ambitious.

I hope to update on a reasonably regular basis, using this thread as something to spur me on and get painting.

The Wraithlord 01-10-10 11:59 PM

Holy crap, going gangbusters here! Nice work so far with done decent painting happening.

Varakir 01-11-10 12:53 AM

Looks like you have a lot on your plate there :shok:

The painted stuff so far looks very cool, i really like your SW grey and will be looking forward to seeing more.

Khorne's Fist 01-11-10 10:25 PM

Thanks guys. After looking back on the thread, I just realised the magnitude of the task I set myself, but, hey, I'll give it a go. If I even get half done I'll be happy.

Khorne's Fist 02-05-10 11:45 PM

Finally found some time to get something done, and decided to try and finish this guy off. Still have a bit of touching up to do, especially now that the photos have highlighted a few more things to do. but I'm happy with how he's turned out.

I gave him what are supposed to be electric blue eyes, but I'm not sure about the results. What do you guys think?

Azwraith 02-07-10 04:06 AM

i personally think the eyes turned out really well!

Khorne's Fist 07-13-10 10:47 PM

Finally got some brush time in!

I knew at the start of this thread it I might have been over reaching a wee bit, what with college, work and real life. However, having finished college (with honours!), taken some time off work, and suspended real life, I managed to get something done.

I haven't decided to use this guy as Alaric, or just a WGBL, but either way I'm really happy with how he turned out. I still have a few touch ups to do, particularly the big fat thumb print on the base.
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1189.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1190.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1191.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1192.jpg

A squad of scouts I really found hard to get going with. Got there eventually though.http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1196.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1197.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1195.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1194.jpg

I have a few more base coated, including several of the old edition metal SWs.http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1198.jpg

This guy started as a moment of boredom, but he's grown on me, and will soon join the ranks of Alaric's WG.http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1201.jpg

That's all for now, but the above collection of models waiting to be painted now includes a LR crusader, another dread, a land speeder, and a razorback. I will now be able to commit myself to getting it all done.

dark angel 07-13-10 10:51 PM

I like them! I really like the one olding the Ork head :grin: have some rep mate, I look forward to seeing more! :)

They are looking good man! Glad I was of some help getting you started, as this seems to turn out really well, and I am looking forward to see more of it! :)
I just feel sad that you have alredy outpainted me lol! Well, at least you inspired me to continue (work allowing).

Good luck and happy painting :victory:

Heh, good idea :P

To bad I must paint up my eldar for a tournament in September "grumble". I could get some puppys painted up in between though!

Khorne's Fist 07-29-10 10:33 PM

Got another bit done, just not the squad of GHs and their rhino that I should be painting. I really love this model, in fact I think it's the finest SM model that GW have produced to date. However, I seemed to be jinxed in the painting of him. There was a superglue accident, then I nearly took the top of my finger off removing some of the original imagery, and then the spray coat went on funny. I'm still not happy with how he turned out because I kinda rushed him towards the end, and as usual the photos show up some things that need tidying up.

Khorne's Fist 09-10-10 09:08 PM

After reading This article, I decided to give it a go. I picked up a few chaos warriors yesterday, and these are my first batch.

http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1235.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1234.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1233.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1231.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1232.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1230.jpg

They need a bit of GS work to fill in some gaps, but I'm pretty happy with them. The one fault I've found is that the position of the arms is quite limiting, but I'm only intending on doing the one unit of GH, so they'll do to add a bit of variety to my puppies.

mcmuffin 09-12-10 09:28 PM

great stuff, it seems that september is the month of the wolves, because i just started mine again. i love that gabriel seth conversion. i am going to be using korsarro khan as mine. keep it up and have some rep
edit: damn, i have to spread the rep. ill get back to you

Khorne's Fist 12-16-10 09:01 PM

I have managed to get some free time to dedicate to my wolves, and am liking my results so far.

First off, the dread featured in the first post. It's taken nearly a year to get him done. As always, the harsh light of the camera brings out a few small things to be fixed.http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1251.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1254.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1252.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1253.jpg

A squad of GHs and their WG pack leader.
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1257.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1256.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1255.jpg

I'm aiming for a very fluffy army, so I had to have some wolves. Ten done, five more to go.http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1250.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1249.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1248.jpg

I've decided to make the army really fast moving, so this is the first of 3 land speeders. Along with the wolves and a forthcoming squad of skyclaws, this is gonna be a pretty fast moving pack.http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1258.jpg

Khorne's Fist 03-25-11 06:21 PM

I forgot about this plog, and it's long overdue an update. The army painting challenge has sped up my painting output no end, and I've managed to get a bit done.

January's entry. My FW dread.

Thanks. He's my pride and joy, even if I found him a bitch to paint.

TheReverend 03-26-11 08:25 PM

Hey mate,

this is looking really good.

I like what you've done with Seth, that's a nice simple conversion. And that Grimnar conversion is great too.

I haven't started painting up my FW dreadnought yet, so will be taking some tips from yours in the coming months :)

The World Guard with those heresy era shoulder pads looks really nice too.

Looking forward to following this and gaining some inspiration for my own army :)

Keep it up!

Rev

Khorne's Fist 08-16-11 10:26 AM

I keep forgetting this plog is on here. It's well due an update thanks to the Army Painting challenge, which, I have to admit has been excellent for keeping me motivated instead of lapsing into months of inactivity as I used to do before. So here's what I've got done in the last few months.

http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1287.jpg
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1286.jpg
The outline of the decal markings on the rhino have since been covered.

This was last month's entry in the challenge. I was planning on a TLLC version for my long fangs, but the assault cannons in my bits box kept shouting at me, so this months GHs have a transport waiting for them.
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1332.jpg
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1331.jpg
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1330.jpg

Speaking of this months entry, here's the so far completed members of the squad. I've been putting off painting these guys for nearly a year, but finally got the urge. I'm a bit ahead of myself this month for a change, so I may even add a plasma gunner to the mix as well.
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1334.jpg
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1335.jpg

More later. I want to take a few decent photos of my LF pack before I post them.

Carsen 08-16-11 12:13 PM

What can I say.... I like them all.. =)
Nice poses and sh*t... *thumbs up*

Midge913 08-16-11 02:44 PM

Lots of good work here KF!! Love the WoC bits and the FW dread is excellent. Keep up the good work man!

Khorne's Fist 08-16-11 06:47 PM

A few more additions to the great company.

The next man in this month's squad for the painting challenge, finished not an hour ago.
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1342.jpg

June's entry, Long Fangs.

http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1337.jpg
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1336.jpg

These guys are actually the very first squad I bought when the first SW codex came out nearly 20 years ago. Stripped and basecoated, they will soon retake their place fighting for the All Father.
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1341.jpg

I ordered this fella last night from BitsPudlo, so expect to see him on here soon as well.
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...hunderwolf.jpg

Khorne's Fist 09-02-11 12:11 AM

Finally finished the entry for August in the painting challenge. I was doing really well until the very last fella, and then I just couldn't seem to get a minute to paint.

http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1345.jpg
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1349.jpg
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1346.jpg
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1347.jpg
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1348.jpg

I converted another guy in the mean time, because I thought they needed a plasma gun, and this time I left the thigh plates from the WoC on the torso because on looking at the pictures of the finished models I thought they looked a bit squat around the torso. This worked nicely, and he is noticabley taller than his buddies. I'll get him painted in due course.

http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1352.jpg

It's a toss up between another squad of scouts or a land speeder for this month's entry in the challenge.

shaantitus 09-02-11 06:26 AM

There looks like there are a hell of a lot of them. Any chance of an army shot. You seem to be making very swift progress.

To be honest there wasn't a whole lot done until the army painting challenge started. I have to say it's been excellent for keeping me motivated, as I seem to work best to a deadline. I'll try and get a group shot up soon.

On to this month's entries. As I've said before I like very fast moving armies, and part of this is going to be a full squadron of land speeders. This is the second of the three required, a typhoon to add some long range power. As the challenge this month allows two entries to make up for any month we missed, I'll also be painting a wolf priest to lead my BCs.

Shouldn't be too long Midge, I'm off work for a couple of weeks with nothing better to do except paint. I might even get a bit ahead of myself.

TheReverend 09-02-11 10:21 PM

He sure does, and he's going to have some help from an iron priest mounted on a tamed juggernaught and the new Ogre mournfang mounts. I've preordered a box because I think this is the closest we'll get to thunderwolf cavalry. Besides, they're cool models.:ok:

Fenrisian 09-03-11 12:23 PM

my mournfangs are also commanded :) nyone wanna buy oger riders w/o their mounts ?

Khorne's Fist 09-13-11 10:54 PM

I got some painting done today and got my Wolf Priest for the painting challenge done. I really like this model, I can't put my finger on exactly why, but it's now one of my favourites in my army.

http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...DSCF1357-1.jpg
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...DSCF1358-1.jpg
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...DSCF1359-1.jpg

I also received this bad boy in the post today, along with a few extra sets of legs. I think it's pretty obvious I'll be calling him Two-Face. I have to say after seeing this model I'd recommend BitsPudlo to anyone. The detail on him is fantastic, and I will be purchasing the other two wolves they have.

http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1354.jpg
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1355.jpg

Just to give you an idea of size, here he is beside the juggernaut that will be ridden by my Iron Priest.
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...m/DSCF1356.jpg

This guy I just threw together after looking at my bits box, and it surprised me I hadn't seen it before. The banner from the chaos warriors box I bought to make my converted GHs, and the original SW banner bearer.

http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...DSCF1360-1.jpg

Midge913 09-13-11 11:59 PM

Good looking stuff KF!!! The Rune Priest is looking good though the head of the pelt could use a bit more highlighting. It looks a bit darker than the rest of the pelt.

I look forward to seeing the Big wolf and the Juggy riding Iron Priest.

Boc 09-14-11 02:14 AM

Great looking models all around, especially enjoying the WoC conversions, they work incredibly well as SW.

Carsen 09-14-11 06:35 AM

Nice Man.. =) I like the priest as well..:)

Have you had any thoughts of the shoulder pad color on your wolf rider?
It hit me yesterday that I don't know what kind of pack-type they belong to. I found a vague reference to them being wolf guards?

Hopefully I will find the time to start painting my wolves as well next week.

Khorne's Fist 09-14-11 09:12 AM

Cheers guys.:ok:

Would you believe I used my neighbours mongrel as a kind of template for the pelt? He's a shaggy sheep dog cross, but the hair on his head is shorter with less colour than the rest of the coat. I copped it while looking out the window while painting. Strange, where you can get ideas from.:biggrin: As to the TWs, I'm having to seriously fight the urge to start these guys now at the expense of the LS I have left to paint for this month's painting challenge entry.

Thanks Boc. They do, dont they? I found the tute online, and it has since been refined here. It's a great blog for the SW lovers out there.

Their entry in the codex says that tracking and capturing a TW is thought to be an intitiation to the higher ranks of the WG. They are considered an elite within the WG, an already elite formation, which says a lot about them. The traditional black and yellow will do the job.

Khorne's Fist 09-14-11 02:57 PM

I really should be getting on with the LS, but I couldn't help getting the Iron Priest done. Imagine my distress when I realised I couldn't even give him a plasma pistol. Oh well. He's a bit of a mongrel, with parts from GW, BitsPudlo, and MaxMini. What do you guys think?
