@ Gederas: Glad to be of help! ;)

 

@ ElDuderino: Hmm, I don't think so -- when I still needed to figure out the optimum placement of elements (and the best possible configuration as well, including how many skulls to use, which cables to keep at all), I was really happy to have the biggest possible degree of flexibility, which leaving everything unglued did provide. That and I really wanted to keep the entire model still as modular as possible to make painting all those nooks and crannies easier later on  -- hopefully... ;)

 

@ Torbenos: Thanks, mate! That is high praise, indeed! :)

Fair enough, I know I'd mess it up and spill glue everywhere myself though:D

Love the Armiger and especially it's interior...is the pilot's head from the WFB Vampires Coven Throne?

@ ElDuderino: ;P

 

@ Timotheus: Thanks, man! And yeah, the face is indeed from the Coven Throne vampires: I ended up with the face because I needed the hair for a different conversion, so I spliced it together with an IG (Sentinel pilot?!) cap. I've wanted to feature a female character in my chaos army for a long time, and this just seemed like the perfect opportunity!

Hey everyone, time for another update -- at long last, that is...

 

So,uhhh... looks like I blew my second ETL vow, thereby letting down my fellow frater on the RoC forum. That sucks, of course! Maybe I should have know that second vow was already a bridge too far -- but then I couldn't possibly have expected both of my parents ending up in the hospital, so there's that. Anyway, it's been a very tiring couple of weeks for me, and I wasn't really very productive on the hobby front, so I guess I've earned another year of sporting an Oathbreaker banner in my signature. Oh well...

 

That being said, it was kinda nice to finally have an incentive to paint my counts-as Huron Blackheart model, so the ETL did have a positive result for me after all, in spite of everything:

The odd INQ28 kitbash notwithstanding, I have only returned to serious hobbying earlier this week, and have at least made a pretty good start on the next member of my "Hateful Eight" World Eaters kill team/berzerker squad/whatever:

Still a ways to go, but definitely getting there! As always, let me know what you think! :)

Ah man, I'm sorry to hear that. I hope your folks are alright now.

 

It was really cool to see your Huron finished, he's such an elegant conversion and your paint job is on point as always. We'll get 'em next year.

Take care lad, hobbies are always secondary.

The berzerker looks lovely, I really like how the full plate cuirass looks.

Sorry to hear about your parents, I hope they're better now.

Nice work on the new berserker (although that guy must be a couple of years old by now, right?:) )!

Cheers for the well-wishes, gents! I really appreciate it! The situation is still ongoing, unfortunately, so keep your fingers crossed for me, eh? ;)

 

@ Isengrin: Hearing you call the conversion elegant is high praise, indeed! :)

 

@ NOOBIENOOBLET: Yeah, he should be fun to finish alright -- he's more towards the back of the queue, however ;)

 

@ Gederas: Cheers, mate!

 

@ Markus_: Haha, yeah: The model actually probably uses equal amounts of WFB and 40k parts, but I find followers of Khorne can always get away with a somewhat archaic look ;)

 

@ ElDuderino: Guilty as charged, mate: The model was actually built years ago. It's one of my unpainted conversions that I feel still hold up next to the new CSM models, so it seemed like a good moment to finally put some paint on it. Oh, and to be fair, the guy did get a new axe while I was at it ;)

 

Anyway, just a small update for today:

Adding a backpack should be such a trivial thing, really, but in this case, it's what really makes the model read as an Astartes: He now has the silhouette and bulk he needs ;)

As always, let me know what you think! :)

You did a good job on the models. Just finish detailing them- bloodstains are a MUST for Chaos- decorate their bases appropriately, and they'll be GREAT.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

Cheers, Bjorn: That is sound advice for the newest model -- for the other two, however, the bases are already finished, plus there's even some (glossy) blood on the right guy's sword -- although it's not really all that visible in the most recent photo.

Sorry to hear about your parents falling both ill, buddy. That sucks. I hope they're doing a bit better now... It's good to see you got at least some work done to relax and shift the focus of your mind a bit. And don't worry about the ETL - we've all been there. At least you had a good excuse? I didn't, unless Necromunda counts.... :)
