I've considered getting one of these for some time now - It may be the next thing I supply to my Black Legion setup in the end, as the very thought of a beast of this caliber storming towards the enemy is pure awesomeness.

I can't wait to see your take on the Black Legion theme though!

Ah, a Maulerfiend! Will be nice to see when you're done - I bought a Forgefiend while I was in France, and while it is true they are huge, they aren't exactly suprisingly large. Think something around two rhinos on eachother...

The flesh part is looking ace! Overall, it is coming along at a fine quality.

I must admit though, that the gold looks more like a bronze than a actual gold. There not enough sparkle-oomf to it and it looks a bit too battered. I'd probably take a look at that and try to give it a more yellow tint than the current.

Thanks guys

I know what you mean Nordicus, I've deviated a little from the really golden trims that we're used to seeing on the Black Legion. However, I like the look I'm going for. Feels really gritty and dirty, kind of like what shiny armor would look like after having spent thousands of years in the Warp.

And I feel you, SwedeMarine! Life in Sweden is top quality

Awesome - As long as it's a personal and active choice, then I have no objection at all! You're really good at metallics overall, and I'll happily admit that I'm mentally stealing some tricks from you ;)

LOL

Finally, after about 2 months of putting a lot of work off, my Maulerfiend is complete! I had a slight dip in motivation/moment of distraction in December which belated the finished result. But now he’s finished and I’m just so happy! I spent a lot of time on him; about 70-80 hours in total…

He was a fun piece to paint (painting the flesh was a pain however). I even made my first attempt at a custom base, which turned out pretty sexy if I say so myself!

Anyway, here he is. I’m posting a few pics (crappy phone pics, sorry). More pics can be found here. Any comments or feedback is welcome!







I’ve just placed another huge order so I’m expecting a Heldrake, some Obliterators and some Plague Marines to be arriving in a while. Also a Dark Apostle (one of my favorite models from GW) who I plan on entering in February’s painting competition!

By the way, I bought one of those matte sealers (GWs Purity Seal). Anyone have any tips on how to use them? I don't want to just use it and accidently ruin my models..

That is... Wauw... That is just awesome! Huge props for that piece of work - It's stunning!

Only thing that I would comment on is the yellow that I spot on the back - It hurts my eyes, as I forgot my sunglasses But again, it's merely a personal taste issue.

You definitely deserve all the reputation that is bound to come your way for this. Great job!
