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.

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.

Actually if you have any skulls lying around (and I am sure you do with Chaos sprues) just glue a skull to the book and GS the flames. They are reall easy and it would make it personal.:victory:

Dude those look so sick, for the Obliterator I know your still working on it but maybe a tip is to blend the colors and gs in a little bit more so it looks like a realy part of him

very nice though +rep for the kitbashing

Thanks for the comments so far gents! ^__^

After far too much inactivity, I have been recently spurred back to life with a few games. Things on the work bench:


These guys are the most recent example of what a standard plague marine looks like in my army. Not a whole lot of difference from the initial lot but I like to link I've got better at finer details lol.

I initially left the eye lenses of my PMs black. This was to simulate that they were in a state of unlife / power armour no longer had power. It was also an easy way for me to dodge painting them, was a bit scared of fine detail. I'm trying to go for a bloodshot eye look on the lenses ie mainly a pale off white with red around the rim. Its evident on the first PM above. C&C welcome!




Kit bashed Obliterator WIP love! <3


Wet blended cloak. Needs better highlighting imo.


Zerker skull champ dry run. He is gonna punch your face right in =P

Out of all these guys, it's the sorceror I want to see more of the most. Mostly because I love any model that is forcing other people to read a book by pain of pain.

"READ MY SODDING BOOK BEFORE I HIT YOU! GO ON! READ IT! READ IT NOOOOOW!"

I like the The Master of the Raven Wing model for the same reason, the difference is he's trying to ram the book down your throat with a jetbike. Cunning devil!

Once I realised how much better the Daemon Prince was in game the plans for 2nd Chaos Lord and that Sorcerer were scrapped. The dry run for it is still on my WIP desk. The concept of that sorcerer is based loosely around Venger from the old D&D cartoon. I _really_ don't know what legion / warband it should be painted up as yet - so it might ended up looking like Venger colour scheme wise too lol.

Some of the Kit-Bashing looks really great! I also like some of the GS work!

Keep it up!

Appreciated bro ty!

While the kit bashing is based on my own I score, I must admit my GS work owes a nod to this spectacular thread.

The fact he's Bearing a Book filled with Words, screams Word Bearers to me. (Alternatively, give him some sort of ornate mace and make him a Dark Apostle stylised chaos lord)

On the other hand, you could always just paint him Black Legion.
