Careful with that landraider sonny, you'll put an eye out. Excellent work so far, looking forward to seeing that titan finished.

The land raider looks amazing. Where did you find those treads?

I really dig the spikes on that Land Raider! Very original and well done. The paint on the Warhound is looking really nice, too. thumbsup.gif

Machinator248 sells them on ebay, they come in the three main sizes you may need. I love 'em.

Thank you! I have spent quite some time scouring ebay and the bits bins at GenCon looking for that one sharp-spiked "rake" so that I can use them on all Deprecator equipment.

+++ OFFICIAL UPDATE: DEPRECATORS LAND RAIDER COMPLETE +++

 

Behold! After painstakingly layering grey paint upon slightly different gray paint, mottling it with another slighlty different gray paint, and then slathering on washes of yellowish-brown, orangey-brown, black-brown, brown black, just black, slightly thinner black, and at least one wash of pretty much warm water, I declare this Land Raider fit for the table!!

+++ UPDATE: LEGIO EXTIRPATOR CHAOS WARHOUND +++

 

And so, with the holidays upon us, we find ourselves with more time to get more done! Here are a couple of pictures of the past couple of day's progress:

 

Here we have the interior, with all the walls and extra parts in place. As you can see the hole in the tech priest's chest has been addressed :)

 

gallery_60727_7283_79291.jpg

 

And here we see the intricate hydraulics of the ankle, which I think will be completely hidden by armor. I considered doing the trim, etc on these hydraulics as practice for the much more visible ones at the hip.

 

gallery_60727_7283_276027.jpg

 

All in all, things are looking good!

+++ UNOFFICIAL UPDATE: CUSTOM DECAL +++

 

As we charge down the home stretch of the Sixth Call of Chaos, I find myself in need of advice regarding custom decals. I have printed up a couple of sheets of 41st Millenium Legio Extirpator symbols on Testors Transparent Decal Paper.

 

Some of the sheets I sealed with Testors decal bonder, and it created a pink-orange halo around the black decals, and was really hard to work with once I floated the decal free from the backing (Thin and easily crinkled). After seeing that, and doing more Internet research, I tried sealing a page of symbols with gloss spray varnish, which performed much better, until I applied the decal, and then there was a really visible edge.

 

Since I have worked with purchased decals before, I went through my normal routine of applying Micro-sol repeatedly until I got the smooth edges I wanted, and eventually seem to have prevailed. I have also sprayed on a layer of Krylon matte varnish art seal, touched up the edges with paint, and put a layer of wash over the carapace, decal included. Here is what I am looking at now:

 

gallery_60727_7283_15259.jpg

 

And for reference, here is the full Post-Heresy Legio Extirpator Symbol that I used:

 

gallery_60727_7283_9983.png

 

So, does anyone have suggestions for making this process easier next time, or is the price of custom iconography a complicated pain-in-the-aft process? I guess it's a point that this is the biggest decal I have applied, but other modelers do things like racing stripes, etc right? Also, I wonder if I should have designed my Icon differently, to make it easier? Perhaps putting the ruined tower on a shield or the like?

 

Anyway, feedback and advice is definitely appreciated. Thanks for looking!

+++ FINAL UPDATE: LEGIO EXTIRPATOR WARHOUND COMPLETION +++

 

Brothers! The time has come. Behold the Nuntius Exitii, "Messenger of Ruin"

And there you go! It's been quite an experience and I am happy with the results. Considering how many new things I tried for the first time with this model, and not only did I not ruin it, but I have a model worthy of the expense to bring it to the table, even if it's only there for deployment and a shooting phase. wink.png

 

Nuntius Exitii is also exerting influence over my project list. I intend to finish a set of LOS-blocking sandstone formation terrain pieces that I started last Spring, and alongside that, I have a mass of cultists and renegade guard to assemble and paint to stand between the Warhound and the inevitable packs of deepstrikers and outflankers that I will no doubt be facing from now on (bring it!)

 

Thanks to Captain Semper for running the Call to Chaos and to everyone else on B&C, together we inspire each other to greater acts of madness modeling  thumbsup.gif

Somehow you put spikes on a land raider and made it look original. Impressive! That warhound is pretty great too!
