So... hello everyone blush.gif I start my first blog here, it's dedicated to my NL's army, that I decided to collect not so long ago.
Now I got some WIPs to go - and here are the pics (4th claw):

These are still wip's, I will add wings to helmets and gargoyles to armor later. Plus, a hose for a melta.

p5160320800x600.jpg
p5160319800x600.jpg
p5160323800x600.jpg
I'll try to convert and/or repose every single model in my army (except machines. Maybe msn-wink.gif ). And characters will be looking like convertion+sculpture, of course...
--------------------------
What I have to do:

Captain/Lord Azanael (freaky name for a Night lord, I know smile.gif )
Sorcerer Gemeth
Unknown guy in termi-armor
1st claw (termi)
4th claw with Rhino
5th claw with Rhino
6th claw ('count as' berzerks)
7th claw - raptors
8th claw - raptors
Predator (don't have a name yet)
Land Raider "Glardus Meldeth"

C&C are welcomed smile.gif

P.S.: and, guys, for those, who want something more - here's link with some of my drawings of Night Lords.

Thanks :) these are made of different marines and some additional parts... so, they are not from a box, they are from dead-minis :lol:
Generally, I don't like GW's shoulder pads and heads. They looking like they came from... hmmm... back from 3rd edition :) so I'll try to do shoulder pads and wings with my own hands. In the end, they'll be looking smarter anyway.

I'd thought, I can use other dex for NLs - and I decided not to do it. We are hard-core marines, with 10k years of constantly war behind. And we are afraid to lose using our own codex??? Of course, no :)

Another five of 4th claw is on line :) I'll try to post them in a few days.

I really like that sarge (the one with power fist). I really like the skull emblems and vent on the chest, although that would make a sweet spot for a bolter round. I also hope you have something nice for where his 'belt buckle' should be.

I also like how the marines all have a chainsword at their hip.

Looking forward to seeing your sculpt work for the chapter symbol and please drill those bolter holes.

Thanks :evil: I think about something like on this pic for an empty space instead of 'belt buckle':
Posted Image
(yeah, this marine is terrible, I know -_- )
I'll think, I will sculpt skull with wings only for champ - for others it'll be too much pathos and coolness :D for every are planned gargoyles and trophies also...
Usually I drill weapon holes right before painting, but I guess, I'll do it sooner ;) thanks again!

Hello everyone :evil: "We have come..."
This is the first update. A little about the first five marines:
I started to sculpt a shoulder pad for my sarge. Ectually, this was first time I sculpt anything. I am satisfied with a result... but there was something wrong <_<
Posted Image
after a bit reworking shoulder pad looks like this:
Posted Image
Wings were terrible, so I removed them and will post version with wings next time. Also I'll add forehead to a skull. But anyway, how it looks, forum - symmetrical?

(advice: I think, everybody know about a little trick with green stuff sculpting, but any way I will say about it.
Right before you mix yellow and blue parts, cut a center. Like this:
Posted ImagePosted Image
In this case will not be "lumps", which prevent to sculpt something detailed :lol: )

And now, another five -_- I hope you'll enjoy them.
Guy without backpack is still wip, I need to work on his knee.

I cut spikes from mashines sprue:

and little skulls from csm shoulder pads. If there's skull already on sword handle, I just glue it with spike-stick and sword together :D

Ave dominus nox!

It's time of an update ^_^ today I have nothing original - mainly because I have exams in next 3-4 weeks. So there's no much time for my army (I mean, converting and painting). But anyway, I'll continue do updates one time per week, or maybe a bit frequently. So everyone, who have interest, will see work in progress. So, lets start.

Raptors:
Posted Image

Predator "Dreyith" (whatever it means):
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

Progress with shoulder pad of a champ:
Posted Image

And progress with meltas of 4th claw:
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

Now, what I have now:
4th claw [unpainted]
7th claw-raptors [unpainted]
Predator "Dreyith" [unpainted]

What I have to buy:
1st claw-terminators
5th claw
8th claw-raptors
2 rhinos
Land Raider (with ea and chaos tracks from fw)
and in far future - maybe second Predator

Next update: 3 June
C&C are welcomed :(

popkhorne: Dude you make me laugh out quite loud :D , no disrespect meant brother, it was actaully your last comment that made me laugh - might have to aquire that one ^_^ !

Seriously, DarkVen I actually learned someting new tonight - where that lumpy bit in my GS comes from!!!! Now I know to cut out the middle. I like your 'GS skills' with the skull & the winged shoulder pauldron of the champ. The conversions are quite nice too, I like the copper wire job (especially with the dude have it go from his helmet to his power pack). Nice work so far.

So whats up next?

I think, test-marine with paint-scheme is on line. I finally have a prepared-one :P

Of course :lol: as you can see, one raptor-guy on the left is already a bit darker than the others.
2 Doghouse
Thanks ;) althought, there's some work with shoulder pad - maybe I'll change wings slightly...

So, what I plan for the next update:
- Test paint scheme (I will change it slightly)
- Pics of a prepared 4th claw.
- Maybe something else :)

I please you to give an opinion about them, and say - what do you think? :)

And I thought. one small squad will be too little for an intire update. So I decided to show you a few little raptors from the 8th claw :D

C&C are welcomed :)
P.S.: And I getting now some help - a friend of mine. He helps me to translate, so I hope, my text will be understandable :)
P.S.S.: And I getting now some problems with my camera: I dunno, when I can do an another update. But as soon as I can - I'll show painted 4th claw, finished 8th claw and started 5th claw.

Thanks ;) still, I think, painted csm is a fail... I've spent only 5 hours to paint this mini - and I know, that I can do much better. But, I'm lazy :tu:

No, really, that guy is amzing. Most people don't spend five hours of time and dedication on their minis.

EDIT: My mod sense is telling me to tell you that you should probably use 'to' instead of '2' :)

Sorry, my bad :) thanks.

This NL getting some failures: highlights, blending and so on... I hope, the intire squad will be looking better.
But anyway, I hope, that this is normal table-top quality.

Like I said, most people don't put this much effort into producing miniatures. This is definitely better than tabletop quality.

DarkVen absolutely sensational work I love the all the little detail you have put on your models with conversion and GS work and the paint job is great brilliant lightning effect.
