Default Iraqiel's menagerie - Project Log

Hello Heretics.

I've been taking lots of photos of stuff, and I thought I'd actually get round to making a general log of things I work on and complete. This is likely to be a hodgepodge of everything, as I get bored often. However, hopefully some of you enjoy flicking through and are inspired to plagiarise ideas, just like I have from everyone on the internet who is better at this stuff than I am.

Without further ado:

Terrain

Last night I finished this little baby up to a tabletop standard. I love this model. My favourite race in the Dawn of War series were Sisters of Battle, and this looks like it has just jumped right from the game onto my painting bench.
http://www.secretweaponminiatures.co...d85ca51d66600f

And my version, painted to fit either an Inquisition or Mechanicus look:


Terrain has been an off and on thing for me. A while back, I cut off all the spare bits from my guard sprues and painted a handful of them, which I now scatter around a board when I'm feeling luxurious about the time I have to game. I'll get photos up eventually of more terrain I've painted, but in the mean time here is a building that a good friend of mine put together for me years ago and I've only just now got around to painting.







As a man with over 12,000 points of his own ultramarines, I'm sure he'd be put out that I painted that particular detail the way I did... let's just call it a portent of the next game we get to have!

Tyrranids

As something to break the Guard and Grey Knights up (so much grey...) I've also started a Tyrranid force. Numbers so far: 28 Hormagaunts, with another 12 to come this month. So far they look like this.



The Transluscent orange was fun, if like scratching nails over a chalkboard. There was no precision about it, I just mixed one part GW Blazing Orange with about six parts of student's gloss medium (really claggy stuff) and laid it on thick. Then I got a cheap brush that wasn't claggy and dragged it off the bits I needed to detail. Yuk. Still, it gives a great insectile skin look.

Grey Knights
Much of the Grey Knights I have can be seen in this year's army painting challenge, but I'll reproduce them here as well:

Storm Raven Project:





Various Strike Squad members (wood fire ash and PVA with blood red and water effects used for the bases:




Various Terminators:



The Land Raider Project (still waiting for that damn psycannon):









The Brotherhood Champion Project:









More to come as I update my photo collection and finish new things. I won't backtrack to previous things I've done, but as I get through Grey Knights and back to IG (and maybe onto DE) I'll be loading up pictures here.

Thanks for the positive feedback!

Most lately I've been embarrassing myself with converting a dreadknight... on a timeline. I'm stopping here and painting the thing, but I need to get some personal projects going to learn how to sculpt and how to convert things better.





This gap is really annoying me, but it is only visible from below the unit. Normally that would be a dealbreaker for me... actually it still is. I guess I'll keep working on it.




You can't see it, but that gap between dreadnought chassis and Dreadknight torso is closed by a recursive section of the IG armour.

Fixing this now, somehow.



As much as this modelling is annoying me (Darwin heat and hayfever are not to a scalpel, plastic model and glue conducive) I am getting more and more excited about painting this and making it look nice.

Ok, not much hobby recently thanks to Girlfriend time, busted car and work (excuses excuses) but here's where I'm up to of late:

Finished the Landraider, and Kudos to forgeworld for the great customer service and (relatively) quick turnaround.


I bought one of those LED magnifying lamps and rate it highly. This photo doesn't do it justice, but I've been finding it helps with the fine detail stuff.


Progress (slow but steady) on the Dreadknight:




And lastly, got a box that has me giddy with excitement...


That's where I'm at. If anyone's looking forward to the next installment of my narrative battlereports, I'm afraid to say it is going to be delayed until I can wrest the photos of my second game from my friend, who has them on his tablet.

That leviathan looks like it was made specifically for grey knights. Cant wait to see what you managed to pull of with that. And im also wondering if you have any more shots of your terrain. Im looking at the one at the top of this page and im astunded at ho well made it is. I need to steal some of your ideas

Progress. Gradual, but satisfying to look back on.



I think I will probably revisit later to blend that sky a bit more, the light to dark is still too abrupt. Also... stars. Need stars.

Awesome work on that banner, I've yet to paint one of the new moulded banners, how are they to work with? Is the detail too fine?
