Default Potential base

So having seen a few tutorials for crackle bases and lava, bought some black crackle paste and had a play. Decided to change from the lava. Aiming for a world lost in the warp, slowly being ripped apart. In my head they have found a lost eldar library, world lost in the warp and they have just been pillaging for knowledge. Couldn't get it to crackle to show the paint beneath so went with another approach.

Contrast seems to have washed out a bit, but hopefully it comes across ok. The model is the test piece I used, not the final ones. When I do the real ones will need to put spacers under their feet so they stand on the crackle, not sunk into the lava-esq bit. Black crust needs some drybrushing, and some more details to be added on the real things.

Larger models will have ruins, heads coming out of the floor/purple bits, etc.

A chain axe is the best way to win an argument.

Default Some (slow) progress

Didn't realise how long since I'd done an update!

Finally found an approach that worked for the bases. Rebased all the marines and all 48 cultists. Ripped up cork, painted very dark grey (almost black). Pins on base to take model, crackle added and model stuck on whilst crackle still wet.

Also been working on some discs for Ahriman and an aspiring sorcerer.

Really pleased with how the flames came out, first time I've done them.

Ahrimans:

Aspiring sorcerers disc:

Need to tidy up the book, and the pics have show some touch ups needed on the bases. The pics were taken just after applying the crackle, so it needs to dry and do highlights and shading.

On the work bench is a fully magnetised helbrute and the sorcerers for the discs.

Also got a few more bezerkers and warp talons to finish off my world eaters stuff.

Hello all,

I've got myself to a stage where things are finished! Settled on a final basing scheme and sealing.
Currently going with vallego varnish followed by matt spray. Gems and warp "ooze" then picke dout more in gloss.

Full pics to follow, but for now a taste!

Wow, not done an update for a while!

It always bugged me that thousand sons had no psychic dreadnoughts. Surely some of their sorceres who fell would have een intereed in dreadnought, and the rubric would not have affected them! However, the hellbrute rules/model are no ones I'm a massive fan of (although the fluff is very cool) Then whilst going through the codex and reading online, it seemed MVB are pretty good for thousand sons. So my solution came to me! These count as MVB, but in my mind are ancient sorcerers, who were interred before the rubric, and are now some of my thrall bands inner council.

I have been really pleased with how these came out. Pics are not great, but that's because they were taken in rush on my phone. Also realised this was before finishing the bases and varnishing! You may notice the armour plates in the thigh of the "lead" are different to the other 2. This is because I lost one, so have had to replace it, and the replacements are not yet painted. When they are they will get put onto the other 2 models.

I've also finished 3 exalted sorcerers, heldrake, 25 rubrics (the old ones), and 50 cultists. Hopefully can get decent pictures when I next have them out! Next on the workbench painting wise are 10 scarab occult terminators. Build wise, I've got a lord of skulls for my world eaters, but the is probably going to be something I chip away at over a long time, as I've got a heavy duty conversion in mind.

The trim is all GS. Rivets were from zinge industries, dreadnought faceplate is based around a venerable dread with a lot of GS work. Axe is based on the nemesis force hammer, with the head carefully cur off and a plasticard blade. The force stave is styrene tube, wire, and some tomb kings bits, as are the 'wings' on the lead model.
