Default Emperors Children WIP Thread

Hey all, been working on my Emperors Children army for a little bit now, but until the past week when my pc blew up, found I'd not been making much progress.

Starting to actually see things coming along on the modelling front, so thought that I'd share a bit of my progress so far. Sorry for the blurry photo's but my camera is a little crappy. Hoping to borrow Infael's once he gets back off holiday, so expect some better pictures soon.

Current progress on the test model for the colour scheme, not sure why I used a possesed as they're a bit different to the way I'd paint a standard marine.

Properly thumbnailed, better photo's and more coming when I get some more done, a camera that's halfway decent and a pc which works again

Cheers for the comments guys.

Lucius - my comment regarding the possesed as a test model was partly due to the amount of trim and the skull for a head - the normal CSM should be pretty close to standard emperors children except with a bone trim.

Anyways - time for an update, again apologies for the massive pictures, once I get my pc back I'll do some proper thumbnails!

Pretty much finished the test model, I'm thinking the pink might need a thin wash to blend the pinks together, as will some of the black bits. Might do another level of highlighting on the bone as well.

Back of the test model

The familiar for my chaos sorceror - will be mounted on his base once he's finished

Current state of my lord and sorceror - still not sure about the head for the lord, will decide soon - small amount of conversion work still needs to be done

Side of the lord showing details of his power/daemon weapon and his head from the side

That's all for now - any comments or suggestions welcome

i agree with the bone, it seems a little to bleached bone and hardly any shading, but that could just be the pic.

otherwise i love your conversion work, its excellent.

sweet start, can not wait antil it is finished

The creatures of the Warp have but one trait with which you need concern yourself - their undying contempt for the Emperor. It is your task to quell the rebellion they preach, and the only sure way is to destroy them utterly.

Love the Staff for the Sorceror, I may just have to Borrow that idea

I like the colors you are using, makes good use of a pink without being too bright, and lots of flesh seems more to the Slaanesh way of going into battle.

I agree with the bone trim, it needs something more. Maybe further highlights would be the thing.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?
