Your stuff looks awesome. Couple of questions:
1) How do you get your Chaos Stars on the shoulderpads to come out so well? I find the curve of the pad always screws me up when I try anything that fine.
2) How do you do your Rhinos? Are they Hunters with the Forge World spaced armour?
Thanks for the comment
1 - I've just done a quick drawing/step by step guide when I got home there
1 - Start by painting two lines in a cross.
2 - Add the other cross, given you start of that Chaos icon
3A - Paint a circile (sp). If you want 3B: paint a dot in the middle
4 - Paint the tips of the arrows
5 - If you've painted the middle part, then paint base coat of the shoulder pad so it two circle in the star.
6 - Depend how you want with the Chaos Icon painting wise. Highlight it.
You can always tidy up useing the basecoat/colour you've painted your shoulder pads.
Just felt it was better doing this due to camera not really able to get to close for the shoulder pad.
Then should look like this
2 - All extra armour plate has been made from plasticard. I done a NQ to HND model making course back in 2005 to 2008. I got myself a pretty decent supplay of plasticard from 0.5mm to 1mm. College teacher where alright with this & usely joke about it.
I use the Rhino to give me the template. Draw out on plasticard, make sure it all ok & then cut out. Just I do like Forge World once, but with the plasticard allow me to add my own stuff or the back part are diffrent. Then use plastic tubes for the space.
I use 1mm to give the armour strength & then 0.5mm plasticard, it easyer to cut & get any design you want.
For the Hunter version, make sure the plastic tube/armour line up & add liquid (sp?) green stuff to fill in any gaps. There should be a photo back in Septemeber when I done the first conversion last year for Throne of Skulls. If I can find it I'll add
With my wargaming club event next week - Stirling wargamer: Rapid Fire. It pretty much working solid to get all new models fully painted for the event.
Just every year October just seem to be a really busy year on pretty much everything in my life. This week no differant.
So here how the new unit looking with there Rhino transport
I've just got one more Battle Brother to build tomorrow some point & he will get painted on Wed.
How my Call of Chaos Predator looking right now & has just been varnish
There still a bit of work to get done before the Predators model finish. I mange to get a hour spare when I got back home today, get some painting done.
I should be getting the Forge World weather powder done tomorrow along with the new Rhino.
My next Call of Chaos - Maulerfiend. I've got a few idea I want to do conversion wise. As always to give the model a sub theme, it own history.
I've been talking to B&C memeber Vlâdvar The Destroyer over on facebook about the conversion he done for his Maulerfiend which use some great parts from the Dark Eldar range, not sure if he has it on his great army log, but it really cool & just to use some element that & I got a lot of other idea to really make this a monster of night-mare, that would bring fear to those defend there forts or trench.
Vlâdvar The Destroyer army log
One of the squad I'm taken to my wargaming club - Stirling wargamer: Rapid Fire event, needed a new Autocannon model & with lack of BFG parts I though I'd use some part to tie in a little with the Iron Havocs I converted a while back.
After Rapid Fire, the Autocannon arm Battle Brother will be re-place in another unit, the new Breacher unit show in this update. But for now he quicly helping another unit for the event.
So as said going be pretty busy getting as much done for Rapid Fire. Then I'm going to quickly take Monday 27th as a quick break as a PS3 day?, possible spend the time converting up the Maulerfiend by late afternoon - just need to see if one of the people attending Rapid Fire has spare part from the Dark Eldar kits.
Edit - Just added note for myself to rememeber. For the Chaos Lord, if Sevatar model not release during the time of Call of Chaos, I think I'll try convert a Chaos era Moritat - Just from what I've seen in the Heresy era they look cool & some of the conversion I've seen have been really cool & inspiring.
If Sevatar model is release during this time. As said I'm bring back one of the Champion from Warsmith Aborred Riddick bodyguards & have them theme around Siege Breaker.
