*sniff* My little NSE's all growed up! :P
Excellent stuff on the thread so far, sir. Will be following with interest. Also [in case you missed it], link to a really nice way to convert plastic bloodletters into plaguebearers!
I was already thinking about doing a bloodletter->plaguebearer conversion, but in the interest of saving time/money at the moment, I'll be using Pestigors as Plaguebearers unmodified. Which actually works quite well.
Update on Daemon Prince
Nothing ground-shaking, but blended the tubes in. All that's left to do with his conversion is to put on his arms, blend in their seams with greenstuff and add a drip to that break in the tube on his back.
Update on Terminators
I really like this guy:
And this guy's tumors are now veiny:
And now the non-helmed fellow has a half-hood:
Looks fantastic! Great conversion work! The greenstuff-fu is with you!+rep
Nice stuff. I particularly like the terminator with no helmet and a half hood. And the work in the daemon prince. Very nicely textured, very atmospheric.
Yeah, I'm actually quite pleased with the no helmet guy as well. Normally I hate armored soldiers without helms -- looks ridiculous. But works with this guy with the distended face I think. Creep-factor.
So, without completing the things I've posted before (though I'm close on the Daemon Prince), I started assembling my run of the mill Chaos Space Marine units.
Getting tired of assembly line cleaning the bits, I decided to treat myself and build out the Aspiring Champion for my first unit. I have 5 Possessed on sprue but have decided to use their bits to build the champs of each unit.
Also, my first combi-weapon, a combi-melta:
Which went on this Aspiring Champion:
Feel like he has the bulk to be a Champion. Had to use the cloven legs -- just so Nurgly and match the cloven feet on my Terminators.
My OCD is dictating that I have 3 ten man units. 2 Meltas + Combi-Melta Champ, 2 Flamers + Combi-Flamer Champ, 2 Plasma + Combi-Plasma Champ. Most optimal configurations? I have no idea, I haven't played yet. But I don't care, it satisfies my brain. :)
Daemon Prince is done and read to primer/paint. In fact, for the Heresy Online 2011 painting challenge, he's my first up. No real pics to show as his conversion hasn't changed much, but I'll be WIPing pics soon.
Dreadnought has had more layering and work done to his "tubes":
I'm having a hell of a time creating a right arm DCCW though and I don't feel like buying a $20 Ironclad right arm. Robbery.
Terminators have some tummies! Also, you can see my Elephant-man start -- he'll have dual tubes and a mask half covering those tumors:
Updated pose of my first Aspiring Champion buy redoing his legs to be standing instead of running, and changing him to a more commanding pose with combi-melta up and fist pointing.
Also, head for my second Aspiring Champion:
Not a ton to show, but I've decided to use that half-masked head above as my Chaos Lord, once I get around to building him out.
However, here is my second Aspiring Champion, complete with combi-flamer. I think my combi-melta turned out much better and more menacing, but meh .. I still like it:
Also, the tumor faced fellow I showed before now has his hood, plus tubes and "goggles":
