I think I'll put some water effects around the rock.

Finally done painting the helbrute. This was my first attempt to use weather effects. I used the soot effects from Tamiya on the heavy flamers and on the vents coming out of the top of the model. For all the eyes on the model I base painted them with tallern flesh followed by several layers of red wash. after that I gave them the the slit down the eye and finished with a gloss varnish. For the feet I gave them a little bit of typhus corrosion and ryza rust. Overall, I'm satisfied with the results.

Well... this guy sorc is almost done. I'm making a force staff for him right now. All I got to give him now are a couple shoulder pads but the question is which ones. After re-watching Game of Thrones and seeing the lord of skulls I think is what they call him I was thinking that make a great looking sorcerer! Now I got another WIP!

For this model I got the head, torso, and backpack figured out. I'll be using the skeletal torso from the possessed box and the skeletal head from the chaos marine box. For the backpack I will combine a regular backpack with a couple orge skulls. Now I just need to think about what to use for the legs arms and shoulder pads. I think I'll give him a scythe for a weapon. Don't know about the other one. Hopefully he'll look awesome when it's all completed.

great work on the brute conversion. and overall a good paintjob. a few soft critiques though, hope you take them with the good intention I'm sending them.

Pros
- the skin parts look solid
- the soot stuff is strong
- the metal edging on the foot/hand claws does the trick if you're aiming to make the darker original metal look worn at the edges

Cons
- the horn bones around the face look unfinished. maybe it's the lighting but it looks like a bit more definition through washing or brown layer lowlights. followed by bone highlights would do the trick

- the biggest issue is the gold/brass trim of the entire model's armor. It appears as though you painted the gold before the blue because of the blue splotching. else if you painted the gold after, the splotching would then be intentional but doesn't convey the weathering (if it was the intention)

I think it's a good base but could do with some wash + layer + silver or bright gold edging. trust me it will bring your blue to life and clearly pop the various sections of armor

anyway, just my 2 cents. a very enjoyable piece though. great work.

Well.... Saturday was interesting. My helldrake took down an imperial knight with one vector strike. Regrettably the knight took my drake with him. Got my ass kicked by some damn Tau. Ate some bad chicken, got a headache and was out cold when I got home.
Anyways... here is my new sorcerer. If I ever do death guard I think I'll strip and repaint him. All I need to do now is some minor green stuffing and excess green stuff removal and he'll be complete. Enjoy!

Niiice looking scythe guy. Dynamic, brutal, with a suitably 40k-silliness over-sized weapon. All on a nice set of conversions otherwise. Similar in many respects to the super-Hellbute.

And just a generally fun plog as a whole. That's an awful lot of Tzeentchi models.

Huh? I thought blast templates (like explosions) don't hit zooming flyers. Not sure on the Knight's super-heavy explosion wording, by any means, but...
