Partial Iron Warrior Squad

These guys were the first squad I finished after restarting the hobby again. I am happy enough with them bar the eyes, black highlights and danger stripes on the weapons. I also think the horns came out a little too dark, but I now have a new recipe for bone that is a little lighter. In future I will darker the black highlights down a bit as well.

Selection of current Death Guard - clickable thumbnails!






In general I am quite happy with how the armour and trim turned out. The grey zombified skin could look better. I am after a blue / grey rotting look, but it is pretty difficult to achieve.

Plaguebearers

These chaps are my current pride and joy lol! I worked quite hard on them. That said they were very fun miniatures to paint. I will probably pick up the Plaguebearer command squad to continue on with them. The paint scheme is largely taken from the current Citadel Miniatures Painting Guide. So while I did but alot of time into them there is not alot of originality in them.

Obliterator Chainsword Arm

A slightly different take on an obliterators weaponary.

More to come!

Thanks Trevor!

Conversion Work


This guy will be my sorcerer when he is finished. I am aiming for a chaos undivided look, with a little inspiration from Venger if any of you have ever watched the D&D cartoon. Something will need to be done about the Black Templar heraldry on the axe. It will probably be filed down or cut off and replaced.


The combi-melta on this guy was the result of a carved up bolter and meltagun. The rest was just a good old kit bash! The mid section of the marine has been carved out for some potential green stuff guts to be added.


A potential skull champion here. Not too keen on starting any other Chaos factions just yet. Just an experiment really.


There are a total of 11 pins holding this obliterator together, it better never fall apart lol.

Thanks AM. & Bubblematrix. CSMs have so many options for a good kit bash! :D I should have a wee update on the Sorcerer tonight. Still in the dry run phase, but had a new idea.

@ Bubble: chap the wings are from a Possessed Chaos Space Marine sprue.

The guts on this bad boy were inspired by Svartmetall's tight green stuff skills. Mine didn't turn out as good as I had hoped. There was supposed to be a thin bit of torn skin over the droopy guts. But is seems to have melted in somehow and no longer looks separate. Hopefully the next one will be a bit better.


Plenty of to-dos still left on the pose of my sorcerer. The shoulder on the sword arm (from a Chaos Warrior) needs replaced with a CSM version. Come to think of it the jury is still out on what I will use for both shoulder pads =/. I want a flaming skill coming out of the spell book. So thats a skeleton warrior sprue and some green stuff required.
