Greetings to you all!
 
I have for many a year been plucking away in the WIP thread, but as most of the things I put there are actually finished by the time I post, I thought it a bit more apt to have a thread here as well - and as there is not far from though to action, thus it is done now.
 
The aim of this thread is for me to post pictures of the various B&C permissable armies that I usually work on and the units belonging to them, which I finish. Currently, I have the following armies in my possession:
  • Dark Angels (1st, 2nd and Battle Company) - about 5000 points total
  • Chaos Space Marines (Death Guard, World Eaters, Black Legion & Fallen Angels) - about 4500 points
  • Chaos Daemons (Tzeentch, Nurgle & Khorne) - about 3000 points
  • Imperial Guard allies (Death Korps of Krieg) - about 400 points
  • Grey Knight allies - about 400 points
  • Tyranids - about 8000 points
As you can see, there is plenty of potential for varied things to be shown and displayed here - and I look forward to sharing with you all.
 
Thus, with no further ado, I bid you welcome to my thread of finished works from the forge of Master Ciaphas!
 
Faithfully,
Master Ciaphas

Hail!

 

And therefore, to open the ball and show off what I have done, I will commence with a picture of some Screamers of Tzeentch that I finished just last night. They are the newest addition to my Chaos Daemons army, to which I only have another 5 models left to paint, before all is done (though the army is not "finished" by any count).

 

Here they are:

 

I hope that you will like them!

 

Best,

Master Ciaphas

Thank you!

 

And here on the last day of 2013, I have managed to finish a few more things - 5 Chaos Cultists from squad Anarkus:

So - the Forge is never still and quiet, and I have this weekend managed to finish 7 Black Legion Chaos Space Marine Chosen; finally Lord Abaddon will have his chosen men with him...

 

Enjoy!

Well -thank you for all the kind words! I am happy that some of you at least like my works.

 

Last week I managed to finish this critter, who has also been lying on the desk for a few years. I am well pleased, that I have managed to make a small impression on the vast amount of unpainted miniatures, that I have lying around.

 

Enjoy!

 

 

Kind regards,

Hail frateris!

 

Well - I have finally managed to finish some of my Death Korps of Krieg - and I am rather enamoured with them. I love the look, and I think it a pity that Forge World has not expanded on the line. I would LOVE to add some snipers og anti-tank crews with "panzerfausts" or "RPG" to the force. That would be wicked. 

 

Anyhow, here is what is done so far:

Enjoy!

So, I managed to finish my Khornate Predator; it is magnetized, so I can change between Destructor and Annihilator modes, which I am sure will be both helpful and economical. Also, the Havoc Launcher is with a magnet...

 

Enjoy!

Furthermore, I also finished off a Battle Fleet Gothic Space Marine strike cruiser...which is all by its lonesome, at the moment...

Those Chosen look great, I like the purple accent colour for the daemonic manifestations on their armour. They look fantastic as a unit.

Thank you, Ghost!

 

Once I get around to painting the few Possessed Marines (x5), that I have lying on my desk, I will give them the same treatment. Even though they are fluffy, they are still probably the worst choice in the Codex...along with the Chosen :-)

Well, I am not the most prolific of painters, but I do try! Yesterday I managed to finish an Astropath for my Death Korps of Krieg as well as two fuel transports for that wonderful game, Battlefleet Gothic.

Love your models, not such a huge fan of the bases, the chaos models particularly. You are obviously a really good painter and the models look great, the bases though are a bit monotone for me. Overall though, great stuff.

Thank you for the comment, Submarine! I will see what I can do about the bases. I have an ambition concerning the use of weathering powders, so why not give it a shot on those bases? I might end up with something good.

 

Further, I have managed to finish 2 Dauntless-class light cruisers (lance variant) for Battlefleet Gothic.

 

Enjoy!

Hail! 

 

So, yet more work has been done in the Forge and thus I can present it here. It is always a lovely feeling to complete something. First up are two stern Commissars from the Death Korps of Krieg, who will delight in imposing some harsh and brutal order; sadly, the Death Korps being what they are, usually means that the Commissars are bored! That will not, however, prevent me from fielding them, as they are wickedly sweet models!

 

DeathKorpsofKriegCommissars01_zps79c1640

 

DeathKorpsofKriegCommissars02_zps00d479d

 

Next, a model I have had lying around for ages and not really bothered with. A Dark Apostle! Also a harbinger of order, though it is an order of a slightly different kind! The model is also sweet, it just oozes style and "feel". I love it. I severely doubt, however, that it will  see much use on the game board...come to think of it, I have never, ever seen a Dark Apostle in the game...

Excellent work, Master Ciaphas! I really like your painting style and have enjoyed most of your work so far!

Any chance you could post some close-ups of the Cultists and Black Legion Chosen? Also, are you planning on painting up any more Black Legion any time soon? :)

And welcome to 2015!

 

Also, thank you for all the lovely comments. I will strive to continue to deliver even more painted mini's this year :-)

 

@Dosjetka: I will get some close-ups of the Cultists and Chosen soon, then. As for future Black Legion projects, I do indeed have some planned, and have even managed to finish some over the Christmas. Those wonderful Traitors are here:

 

CSMBlackLegion01_zps32216ce8.jpg

 

3 Black Legion Chaos Space Marines. All good, I say! With regards to the future, I am planning on doing "Kranon the Relentless" as a Black Legion Chaos Lord, a Black Legion Sorceror and a Warpsmith. Further, I will also be doing a World Eater - Black Legion adherent - Vindicator. That will be in the same vein as the Predator previously shown.

Master Ciaphas
