I am a HUGE fan of Grey Knights, and I have been working on a couple of project figures for the last little while. I am very busy with life in general so unfortunatly I do not have as much free time as I would like, but here is what I have managed to get done so far:

This is my GK Chaplain, as inspired by the awesome GK novels!!!
I built his helmet from scratch out of GS, and used classic metal lightening claws. His base and the splashing blood are all GS as well.


Here is my test terminator. I am seeing if I have the skill, and if I like the look of tabarded GKTs. I think I am going to do the whole squad this way.






Here is a shot of some additional detail I added.


I am also working on a GK GM. I have customized him to be holding his NFW in two hands, I have swaped his head for a bald one (like mine :eek:k:), and I am currently attempting to convert his Storm bolter into a Psycannon.

Very nice work so far! I'd love to see it all when you've got it fully modelled and painted up.

Heh - the chaplain's base would make every blood letter on the field run for him just to lick his boots! :p

Brilliant conversion concepts and a very nice paint job

Brilliant conversions! I really like the helmet you've sculpted for the Grey Knight Chaplain and the tabbard you've sculpted on your test terminator and the conversion for the last guy looks very good. Looking forward to seeing them all painted up.

Brilliant work. I like the 'splashing' blood. Thats a serious amount of killing oging on there or is this on a deamon world?

Looking forward to seeing more.

Thank you all for the comments :grin:

My intent was that the Chaplain is on a Daemon world like the one described in the first GK novel. But there is no reason why the blood he is stepping in couldn't be that of foul Daemon scum that he has killed! :threaten:

Now I'm still not a fan of NMM and there are various reasons why. Gold for me is my most favourite and aesteticly (sp?) pleasing. Silver on the other hand as a NMM is never convincing to me, I get the method behind it and the reasoning behind it, but it always looks like it's just grey. This guy looks awesome man. It is nice to look at it painted this way as it is softer than the metallic versions I've seen. I do see some semblance to silver or metal in some of the areas of the figure. I'm not fully convinced it's supposed to be metallic by looking at it. Now don't get me wrong, I'm in no way slamming this figure because to be honest it just looks absolutely sweet. I love the grey look to him and man, that blending is flawless in my eyes. I just can't speak when I look at his purity both fluff and well, your presentation of the figure... he's soooooooo clean!!! Gotta rep ya

gotta say, i'm really glad to see more NMM painters! you did great! this is absolutely awe-inspiring! Your use of strategic shading is imaculate! I'm thoroughly impressed with your work!

Maybe you could do a tutorial on some various GS applications. I'm sure that people would love to see how you made that chaplain head. Maybe even a shading tutorial? Just a suggestion, but i know it wouldn't be for nothing! thanks again for showing me that it can be done. NMM that is.lol. I'm inspired to continue with my attempts! thank you!

forever awestruck,
Commissar Ploss

Thanks guys!
NMM is pretty tough to do and I know it is not everyones cup of tea. I find it intimidating with all of those GD painters posting their NMM work which I never have a hope of duplicating! I am just having fun with the process of painting!!! and giving myself some models I can be proud of in the process :D

rock on, thats a good way of thinking about it. what do you think about those tutorials? :wink:
CP
I was thinking about it.....But that will take a lot of time away from actually painting my models :cray: and I want to keep going while my motivation is still fresh!

I am more than happy to answer any questions you have about what I have done though :eek:k:
