Painting Update - Part 5

A bit of a break from Nurgle this week, to show some of the progress made with my Tyranids. First up, a winged Hive Tyrant.
The weapon is a twin-linked devourer, made from spare gaunt and warrior / tyrant arms and weapons. I have seen other conversions of this weapon that use the fleshborer hive arms (legs?) from the Tervigon / Tyrannofex kit, however I wanted my version to still be a recognisable version of the original weapon, simply up-scaled.

The bone armour plates were painted using my usual coats of red, white markings, red ink and gloss varnish. It is quite time consuming but I'm always pleased with the results - particularly with the bigger creatures!
 
 
To create the base, several pieces of cork tile were ripped up and layered on top of each other. The model was then pinned through the tail to the base.
Well, that's all from me today. Please let us know what you think through the comments or on our Facebook page.

Painting Update - Part 4

Just a quick one for today, the man himself... Typhus!
Painting this model has been an ambition for some time now, although whether he'll see much use in games is another thing. Couldn't resist though!
This one is very much still a work in progress, as every time I look at him I see an area I would like to improve, or make look even dirtier!

That's all for now,

Painting Update - Part 3

Time for another look at the Nurgle project! This time, the first Havoc squad. This is one of two identically armed squads, with 4 autocannons in each.
The autocannons are from the Forge World pack, which look very impressive lined up on a gaming table! The points cost for such a unit is very cheap too, and they've been doing well in all the games I've used them in.

Finally, the whole squad. I've gone for a slightly less grimy and corroded look with this squad, as opposed to my approach with Plague Marines - who will be making an appearance at some point in the future.

That's all for now. Until next time...

Painting Update - Part 2

Time for another painting update, and more Nurgle bikers. First up, the squad champion.
 The power scythe was made from the handle of a large power axe and a plasticard blade. I decided to have this bike rearing up on one wheel as it looked more impressive that way when I was gluing it together.
 The champion's body was another from the Forge World Plague Marine upgrade set.
Next up, a squad member with melta gun. This was also the first model I tried the rust effect on.
 And finally, a shot of the whole squad. The only things left to finish are the bases. For these, I want to go for a red 'mars' effect. Any suggestions would be welcomed! An attempt at this can be seen on part of the champion's base, but I'm not sure whether I like how it turned out.

As usual, comments are welcome, either here or on our Facebook page. That's all for now,

Prospero

Painting Update

It has been quite a while since I last posted anything, and there have been lots of projects underway during that time! Over the next couple of weeks, I'll be going through the (many) things I've been working on.
So lets start with my Nurgle Chaos Space Marines. These were started over 2 years ago, but this is the first time I've shown any here. First up is the Lord on bike.
 The body is from the Forge World Plague Marine set, but with a head-swap as I felt he'd do better at issuing orders without his jaw hanging off! This did however leave a fleshy lump on his neck, which I decided to leave and simply paint it to look sore / diseased.

 The back-banner was a spare from a standard squad box, with the pole supporting it made from a bit of sprue.
With this army, I have been practising painting rust. The new(ish) technical paints have been a great help with this, and I've been pretty pleased with the results!

Well, that's it for now, but there's much more coming over the next few days / weeks. As usual, let us know what you think in the comments or on our facebook page!

Prospero.

Death Star Trench Run Video Battle Report

Hi all,

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Combatzone-Scenery and playing on their excellent Death Star Trench Run Board.

I had a great time playing the Trench Run Scenario, so much so that we filmed a Battle Report.
