I got some painting done on my Contemptor Helbrute and its base. I still have a long way to go. I’m only halfway through picking out the orange again after the heavy wash as you can tell the legs are left to do. I need to go over the metal again and tidy up some […]Read more "WIP: Chaos Contemptor, part 4"
Ok, lets get this party started. DreadTober 2016 is officially on (even though it’s still September) and the first of the weekly challenges is to plan and build you entry. Like I’ve mentioned before – I’ll be doing a Betrayal at Calth Chaos Contemptor Helbrute. I need to do the following conversions: Turn it into […]Read more "WIP: Chaos Contemptor, part 1"
The game last Friday night was a blast. Sure we both made horrible mistakes and probably forgot tons of rules, for both better and worse. But that’s ok; we didn’t break the most important rule, you see. Now be warned – this was a game of fluffy list and unbroken combinations, the armies deployed mediocre […]Read more "Bring me the Heart of the Iron Oracle – battle report (comic book style)"
The holographic map of Moot Harkan shimmered with a bluish tint, casting a pale light on the two Heretic Astartes standing before it. The Shrine World was all but lost to the Tyranids. Elements from the Astra Militarum still held out close to the Citadel City but their number were dwindling. Chaos Lord Davos Vane, the […]Read more "Bring me the Heart of the Iron Oracle – background and list"
To celebrating my 100th post I give you the Slaughtersmith – Slaugterpriest/Warpsmith conversion. It was a quite fiddly and frustrating process and I just didn’t think of picking up the phone to snap any shots. Sorry. I did take some photos of him before priming. Now check this badboy out! The humble beginning, an awesome […]Read more "WIP: Slaughtersmith conversion"
Say what? Yes, it’s already time for another update. I’ve been doing a lot of Green Stuff work on the Forgefiend, focusing on the armoured carapace. The work’s been done over a couple of short sessions. Early mornings mostly, before heading off to work. The actual sculpting isn’t taking that long, 30 minutes or so per […]Read more "WIP: Forgefiend Conversion, part 7"
I managed to do a little work on the Forgefiend conversion before skipped off to work. I concentrated on the neck. It is mostly done, I’ll just run some cables from the head back to the neck and tidy up some of the details. That’s it for this time. It’s not much, but I wanted […]Read more "WIP: Forgefiend Conversion, part 6"
+++ Many Carnifexes died to give you this update. +++ I’ve started working on the upper body. There loads and loads of work left to do but I’m extremely pleased with the feel and pose of beast. The fact that I can put it together (apart from the Hades cannons) helps a lot when it […]Read more "WIP: Forgefiend Conversion, part 5"
Remember way back when, when I said that I’d finish the legs the coming weekend. I almost did. Almost. Then time just kept on running by. You know the routine – work, family, responsibilities – the lamentations of adult life. And then the Euro2016 started. I’ve put down some work on the conversion, five minutes […]Read more "WIP: Forgefiend Conversion, part 4"
Here’s another quick update on the Forgefiend conversion. More sculpting on the legs and feet. The legs are near completion. I just need to make some armour plates for the lower legs and finish sculpting around the hips. Once that is done, I’ll fix the legs together and start working on the midriff. And from […]Read more "WIP: Forgefiend Conversion, part 3"
