The LoC is looking better and better all the time! Love the choice of backpack, and that sculpted armour looks really neat! I'd personally keep the existing plastic guts and add some sculpted detail on top of them -- there's being confident in your abilities and then there's being needlessly ambitious (I admit it's a tough line to walk) ;)

That knight is looking amazing, and sculpting arrows in the less corrupted parts will do a lot for him. Also, the chaos lord looks nice, though I must say it bothers me a bit how in 8th it's usually better to field your HQs barebones (at least for CSM), which removes a lot of the coolness of badass weapons if you want to go fully represented. Still, you made quite a good job, reminds of the Dawn of War chaos marines.

Wow, page 200 has arrived. Man oh man. That's been 4,5 years in the making and it's been such a ride so far. Thanks for all the comments, critique, insights, jokes, banter, tips, links, inspiration and friendship, guys and gals. To every one of you.

Anyway, back to the fun stuf.
 

I did some more sculpting on the Chaos Lord (and on the Knight, but that's not presentable yet) - I thought it'd be a cool idea to staple his belly to his chest plate, to make sure it doesn't droop completely out of his armour. ;)

What do you think? :D

 

Additionally, I started work on my first Call of Chaos unit, another unit of Plague Marines! This time with meltaguns. I have five left after these guy, with two more on sprue - of which I'm probably making a couple to be wielding Blight Launchers. There's a cool list I have in mind of five units of five PMs with two Blight Launchers each, along with a Chaos Lord with the warlord trait Arch Contaminator and the Fugaris' Helm. He''ll have a 10" bubble in which units reroll 1s to hit and all Plague Weapons reroll all failed wound rolls. Not the most competitive, but fun times!

 

Anyway, here's pictures.

@ hushrong: Yay, thanks buddy!

 

@ BCK: Well, I'm very glad for it, so again: thanks!

 

@ Doghouse: Thanks! High praise from mr Truescale Himself!

 

@ DuskRaider: In terms of time, maybe not, OR MAYBE YES! They deliver in six weeks or so, so if you have the top ready by then, all you have to do is work on the pose and done!

 

@ Biohazard: Thanks, mate. Still not sure about the cockpit. It's a lot of work for fairly little payoff. It's the same thing I have with Land Raider and Rhino interiors. Why bother, you know?

 

@ malcharion: Hey malchy! Thanks for the shout out, buddy! I like the idea of him gargling praises at Nurgle. :D

 

@ Dragonlover: Not to worry. I of course am in full favour of the idea that at least some stereotypes should be avoided. Too much Red will make it look Khornish. But Mörbeck has shown that bone, blue and orange could make a fantastic looking Nurgle army!

 

@ KrautScientist: I love the fact that you topped off page #200. Thanks for all the support! I kept the belly, but agree with BCKs gif, below your comment!! :P

 

@ BCK: oh you...

 

@ The Traitor: I know right? Barebones HQs are such a loss for individualization of miniatures.

Oooh I love Beluth! Something about his pose makes him look super awesome!

I know how it's perceived in the english speaking community and I already try to tone it down but I barely notice when it's too much since it's normal for me.


So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

Congrats on page 200, the Lord is looking awesome, that’s a great touch with the stomach staples.

New Plague Marines are looking cool, love the close combat specialist.

As for the cockpit I hear you completely. Its more a personal touch. I feel I have to add it to all my knights since I’ve already done one :D
All my other vehicle doors are glued shut though ;)

Congratulations on page 200! :)

 

The new squad is looking great. That's a very clever use of the Blightbringer head on that one melta guy, and the sergeant looks like he's having so much fun, swinging his little bell back and forth with wild abandon ;)

 


@ KrautScientist: I love the fact that you topped off page #200. Thanks for all the support! I kept the belly, but agree with BCKs gif, below your comment!! tongue.png

 

*Sigh* Look, maybe it was poorly worded, but all I was trying to say was that, at least in my opinion, it's not only about being awesome at converting or sculpting stuff, it's also about knowing when it makes sense to keep detail that is already there and about how to best incorporate it into what you are doing. With all due respect, there are few people that can match the sculpting work of someone like Maxime Pastourel, and there's no shame in using the detail present on the model, even if you want to change it around a bit. In fact, the solution you've come up with now actually illustrates my point: It looks great, precisely because it combines your own sculpting with the detail that's already there.

 

On a related note, pinning the rolls of fat to the armour is such a brilliant idea! :)

Loving that Nurgle Lord. "OWWWWwwwwwwww! That's my TOE, you LITTLE censored.gifcensored.gifcensored.gif!!!" Seriously, he looks like he's roaring! Awesome!   Belly turned out great! And a great looking start for the Call.

Another great update on the lord! You have no idea how I want to copy yours for my own Black Legion.

 

The new plague marines look great and I love the idea of the blight launcher heavy army list. That weapon is seriously a fun one to shoot and have plenty of.

Squad done! Also the first unit done in my Call of Chaos vow - which I f'd up because I have three DG characters to do and no Plague Bearers. Oh well.  Anyway, picture time!

@ sfPanzer: I thank you, kind sir! He's kinda cobbled together (I originally had used the Tallyman body for him, but later realized that bit would be best suited for a character, which led me to use it as a basis for my Necrosius conversion a couple pages back). So I used the Blightspawn's legs which I had left over and hey presto: done!

 

@ Biohazard: Insane no? 200 pages, 4.5 years of posting here. I think maybe I'll do a cockpit later, maybe even after I painted the Knight. I did an order of a lot of sitting resin dudes, which I can use as princeps... Damn. Your comment has gotten my brain racing - maybe I'll do a completely corrupted Knight cockpit where everything inside has turned to daemonic fleshmetal and the 'pilot' of the daemon-engine is this soul-infested corpse writhing among cables hooked into the fleshmetal. Groovy...

 

@ KrautScientist: Thanks! Page 200! It's insane! I know you're having a lot of fun with the Velsen Sector, but I know you want to bring that Khorne's Eternal Hunt behemoth of yours up to its bicentennial page, and I already sent you a PM, offering you a Cup of Blood Red to remove your main drawback and make that a reality. But you no respondy. :( Also, thanks on the positivity on the pinned flesh, and yes, I agree I should build my skills by pushing them, not overstepping my (current) bounds. :tu: :)

 

@ rednekkboss: Hahaha maybe change the nurglings into something else? Or no?

 

@ hushrong: Go for it - I love to be copied. But learn from the poolish studio's mistake and please mention me perhaps maybe? ;) The Blight Launcher heavy list came from TableTopTactics. Fun channel.  :tu:

My jaw just popped out of its socket! You painted that in TWO DAYS! I am envious at your skills! Building/converting is no problem for me but it takes me months just to get psyched to paint something haha. And you can do it all at the snap of a finger, that's awesome. You did a stellar job too! Your plague marines are looking nice and gritty!

 

And no worries. I always cite my research when I take inspiration from someone else as it seems right.msn-wink.gif Plus, college ground that habit into me with all those papers I had to type. I am getting ready to work on my second BL Berzerker squad and I am slowly thinking the idea of a great cleaver toting plague marine hanging around them will be quite alright.

Wow that was fast dude. And I was happy with the fact I almost got the basecoat on the 7 Plague Marines in 2 days. Good job with the unit they are looking great. Any tips on painting so quickly?

Rapid work as always. :tu:

On the pilot, I watched the newest Pacific Rim movie a couple of days ago and there are some corrupted Jaegers in that. They’re piloted by a fleshy mutated AI drone. Just feeding that imagination a little more ;)
