Hello and welcome to my corner of the Warhammer 40k universe!

This will be my PLOG where I'll post just about anything I'm working on for Warhammer 40K. My growing warband of greenskins, my enigmatic force of Altansar Eldar, my future force of Crimson Fists, my terrain and much more that will pop up in that indefinite mind of mine. Some of you that find your way in here will have done so through the thread "My first game board" since I'll show the finished result in here.

The reason I do Warhammer is because I like it as a creative hobby, and once in a while like to get into a real resin fight. I do not have the intention to be competetive with my forces and not even competetive with my converting, painting or terrainmaking skills. I just want to have fun and share my work with everybody and hope to be some inspiration for anyone reading this and at the same time get som hints and tips how to reach where I'm going with my projects.

My first project I'll start in here will be my Battlewagon (I just got it from the store). I'll convert it a bit to give it a unique look. (First pic on that one on sunday!)

Other projects that are in progress are my converted Trukk and my Looted wagon, the last which some of you already have seen in "My first game board". I'll post a few pics on them asp.

So, let's go and see what this mind of mine can skratch together.

And here is some pics on random projects for starters.

First, a sandbag wall to be.


Second some tank trapps with some junk laying around.


Here is a pic on my Trukk in progress.


And finaly my almost finished Looted Wagon. I just need some more paint and more spikes and other orky fings etched to the hull.



All these will you be able to see me finish here at my workshop. And as I said in my first post, on sunday, maybe earlier, I'll post the first pics on my Battlewagon.

Cheers!

Nice looking looted Raider, good luck with all the projects you mentioned!
Thanks alot!

Here is the first pics of my Battlewagon. What I have done is that I have taken the sidewall of the turret and made it into a side sponson for the grot turret. Then I have lowered the ceiling to make a gun pit where I have placed the main kannon. I have used the Killkannon just because it looks way times cooler. I've have taken pics from two days just to show some progress.







That's all for this time, stay tuned for more from da Workshop!

Thank you Meldon :) I guess you could always try, then again I suppose it will be your boys in blue that will litter the ground when we're finished :sarcastichand:

Looking good, glad to see another PLOG up and running.
Thanks man!

Hello y'all!

Time has come for some new updates on my Battlewagon. What is left is realy just some high lightning, markings and the crew. What you're gonna se is a the whole Battlewagon such as it is for the moment along with close-ups on the main kannon, deffrolla and trakks.






I have also worked on my Trukk and my first squad of Altansar Guardians but they'll come in later posts. I want to finish much of my ork force before starting posting my Altansar.

Hope you like what you see and please C&C.

Finaly ready for a new update on things. I've been working hard both professionaly and hobbyish. Since last time I have given my Battlewagon and Trukk much time and today I have also put down the first layer of paint on my board. A heavy brush of dark brown, I'll check on it later tonight and see if it dry enough to run the first, lighter drybrush. It is just a week left to my little tourny so I'll have it finished and up on the PLOG before that.

But now it is time for both my vehicles, enjoy!

Battlewagon, I hope y'all would help me with a brutal and killy name for it. :)




And my trukk, just a trukk so no name needed. :wink:




Hope you like them and feel free to C&C!

I like your weathering, the paint chipping looks very good!
I would personally brighten up the wheels as yet, as the tracks and generally the lower half of the vehicle is mainly copper, wheels being more silvery/grey might help. Overall very good, although you need to do something with the wire on the truck, at the minute it looks far to bright and out of place, mabye try washing it down?

Hope this helps, have some rep to keep you going!

Then it is time for my first post regarding my game board. I have finaly laid my hands on some paint and I have put down several layers on it. At the moment I am very pleased with how the dirt came out. I am, however, not that pleased with how the alien strawplants looks for the moment I'll work more on those before posting any close-ups. The bridge also needs some more work in order to blend in with the board.

Since this is the first post regarding it in this thread I'll post a few old pics so that you who are new to this project can see the progress for yourselves.




And finaly..



And a pic of my Deff Dread striding across the desert.


As I said, I'll post close-ups on the bridge and plants as soon as I am happy with their apperance. I realy hope you like the look on this, my very first gameboard and remember to comment a lot.

Hello everybody!

In about four hours I'll greet Meldon's Smurf's 3d Company and lonnebo's Tyranid swarm to my appartment. Tonight we shall baptize my game board in the fires of war. I have made some final work on it, as you will see, and I have painted up my painboy. I thought it would be a good time to introduce you'all to some of my greenskins so here we go.

We start of with my Nobz along with my Warboss, Bark Squig-Grin and my Painboy.




Here is my Warp'ead, I have tried to model lightning from his finger tips using green stuff. The model is a Orc Shaman from Avatar of War.


Lootaz


An ork standard bearer, I count him as a regular boy but I'll count the standard as beeing the Nobz bosspole.


My warband roaring towards battle!


And now the bridge, plants and the cliffs. Tell me what you think of it all.




Much of my warband is unfinished and nearly all need basing still. I've tried to give the uniqe models more time and the majority of the boyz simply gets knarloc green and the Thraka wash, just to speed things up. I think I'll never see this army finished and every time I look at them I find some new detail I want to highlight or whatever. :)

Again I hope you all enjoy what you seen here and don't forget to leave me a comment or two.

Looks great! The tentacle mouth plant things are a nice touch. You could do what I do in regards to wanting to highlight, just paint them all and when the force is finished go back and do touch ups. At least then they're all painted!

Luvvin the Raider Wagon and the Trukk in particular, but it's all very cool indeedy.
Quality paint too.

Reppage inbound..
....Thread subscribed.
Thank you very much Viscount for the extensive rep!

Now, this passed friday there was a small tournament to give my game board a grand opening. Battles raged back and forth for about 12 strait hours and I've got some pics from that.





There is no need to say it was great fun to see how playable my board was.

Since I've put much time into my warband lately I'll do some work on my Eldars for the time beeing and I'll post the first pics on them as I go along. My first squads to be finished are a squad of Guardians, including Warlock and Scatterlaser, and a squad of Dire Avangers.

For October I have a vision which I just have to embrace. It concerns my Crimson Fists and you'll be able to follow it during october.

Time for some update to this plog.

For a change I've decided to upload the first pics on my Altansar Eldar. What I've finished (except of basing) this far is my Squad of guardians and my Dire Avanger Exarch.

Guardians with Scatterlaser


I'll tried to paint the Altansar icon freehand on the guardian standard but i'm far from proud of it. I'll train more on that and have it redone. The standard itself is from the DA box and I have trimmed the squadmarking on top of the pole to show that of the Guardians and not that of the DAs.


Then the DA Exarch I have tried to bring forth some mothion in his pose. I've chosen clothings that are blown in the same direction and I have used the, what do you call it?, crotchcloth?, as a cape. The ribbons tied to his thigh and upper arm is in the Altansar colour, showing which craftworld he is fighting for.



What is next at my workshop is the entire DA squad, 5 Warlocks, the Sand bag wall, the tank trapps and whatever I find to do with my Orks. Then I'll soon begin on my Crimson Fist as well. I've ordered a Razorback, a SM captain from GW and Crimson Fist Icons and Rhino doors and plates from Forge World. I also have something special in mind for my Captain but more on that later.

You could use a wash on those guardians, will make the details come out a bit more, other than that your doing good. :)
