Default SGMAlice's New WAAAGH!! Project Log, Now With Extra Loyalist!

Hey Guys,

Just had some Models thrown at me by a friend of mine who is new to 40k. Sweetly asking me to paint them for her.... As if I don't have enough to do
Seen as I haven't shown any of my work here I figured I'd start a Log and see what you guys think.

Please bear in mind that my weapons of choice are the Pen and Pencil NOT the Paintbrush so don't be expecting too much

A rather poorly painted Ghazghkull Thraka and a MegaNob are first up. Due to the fact that she got them from Ebay and I have only just decided to do this Log; I have already given them a bath of Dettol and have no pictures of what they were like. Suffice it to say they looked as if they had been dunked in a few pots of paint and left to dry.

The Bath:


Nastyness!! It turned a wrong shade of brown and the paint was all gooey

I'll show you what it did to the toothbrush I used to scrub them:

Not pretty! Looks like some one has been brushing their teeth with Tar
I was also forced to use one of my leather needles to pick at the detailed spots as toothpicks had no effect, they gave it up as a lost cause and broke.


This is the result of 12 hours in the Dettol and 3 hours or so of scrubbing and picking at them:

Its the best I could do given the circumstances. And now I am more Prune than Woman.
I made quite the mess and was berated for it Needless to say I jumped to cleaning it up quick smart

As an intermediary I'll show you what I have painted so far. I was given Fifteen Nobz! And an AoBR Warboss.
I have done the Warboss and four and a half Nobz so far:






Instead of the skull that was already there I've put a severed BA head on the shoulder of the Warboss. Little room for conversion here i'm afraid as my friend wants them pretty much standard for now.

C&C (Of any type) Welcome

If you want criticism, then I guess I don't like the teeth, but I'm boring and prefer normal bleached bone

That's about it for criticism lol

As long as you keep the skin green, you shouldn't get any crap outta me.

Yeah, i was thinking that, even though i see them everday they don't look right in the pictures; Just the light or something? Maybe i'll re-do them...
I attempted a blood caked, SM entrail chomping, set of gnashers for him.
