First off: HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!

 

Woke up with a hangover at 1pm and immediately started to have a suuuuuper long session of painting today, while my GF is working on her project to R2D2-ify the bathroom garbage can. 

 

Here's where I am now. It's starting to shape up good. There's a couple of spots of gold that need work. I've drowned everything in wash, which is drying now. Then it's off to a drybrush all gold with leadbelcher. Then it's the trophies and the fleshy bits, and the blue inner furnace glow and he's pretty much be done. Figure with some luck I can finish him tomorrow.

Wow, just...wow! This makes me so happy! smile.png

One thing I already noticed in your last update: Is there a suggestion of a daemonic face behind the Knight faceplate, or am I just imagining things? The lower region does look like a maw, if you ask me...

How did you do the bronze/brass, btw? It's looking great already!

Glad you like it so much man! You're pretty much my go-to frater when it comes to all things Khorne, so I appreciate your feedback very much. And right you are mate! I sculpted a jaw and the muscles for a grissly neck for him. Here's a pic:

temporary_zps08aa57b8.jpg

 

My 'brass' recipe is very simple: Valejo Liquid GOld Old Gold, a thick wash of Army Painter Strong Tone and then a drybrush of GW Leadbelcher. The pics so far are sans the drybrush, so even easier :tu:

 

@Marqol: Hey that's actually a pretty cool reference that I never thought of! Might be something I could use for his fluff. :tu:

 

@Tarvick: Hopefully tomorrow!

 

@Flint13: Haha that's what I was aiming for! ;)

 

@Atia: Thanks buddy! I love it too :D

 

@Midnight Runner: Cheers MR! Red is pretty much the go-to colour indeed. But the cool thing is that he doesn't look out of place among my Night Lords - which was a concern.

 

@Argent Aquila: thanks man - mostly the trophies will get a lot of Blood for the Blood God love. :tu:

 

And here's a bonus pic of my GFs work on the carbage can. ;)

Good so far, mate. The horns really stand out for me, they've got a very smooth gradiant from base to tip. Kudos for overcoming such an annoying setback so early into the painting process. Oh and congrats on becoming an Uncle!

This. The effect is just sublime!

 

As for the rest of the model, I am frankly torn between utter admiration for a beautiful, Khornate death machine, and extreme envy because you are able to paint such a massive model to such a standard in such a short amount of time, while I am killing myself over two measly Terminator-sized footsloggers msn-wink.gif

 

Excellent work, mate!

 

P.S: That R2 trash can ROXXORZ, of course! ;)

Sorry to double post, but the finishing of the LoS made my hobby jive go in overdrive. So I am determined to finish the Plague Contemptor before I have to start work again. Here's a little update of plain and simple. Work in Progress. Only the blue to grey base colour done, some Valejo Liquid Gold (VLG) Red Gold, and the brown for all the metal parts. I'm now waiting for the wet'n'sloppy brown to dry, so I can start drybrushing. Thought I'd share some pics biggrin.png

 

WP_20150103_013_zps69759906.jpg

 

WP_20150103_012_zps24747223.jpg

 

So the process I follow for almost all my Night lords is as follows:

 

All my Airbrush paints are deluted with my special airbrush liquid (SAL), which is a 1:2 mix of Liquitex Airbrush Medium and Valejo Airbrush Cleaner. The cleaner helps a smooth run through the airbrush, while the liquitex medium adds a sturdiness to the paint itself. It's like there's a little bit of liquid latex in the Liquitex medium, which I greatly value. 

 

Ok here's my recipes:

 

Blue colour:

  1. Complete and total spray of VMA Insigna Blue
  2. Thick spay highlight with VMA 'Blue Angels' Blue
  3. Spray highlight with VMA French Blue (for the Plague Night Lords, including this contemptor, this is instead VMA German Grey)
  4. Spray endge highlight with VMA Light Sea Blue (for the Plague Night Lords, including this contemptor, this is instead VMA Barley Grey)

Lightning:

  • Watered down 1:1 mix of VMA Light Sea Blue and VGC Off White

Metal:

  1. Very wet coat of GW Rhinox Hide
  2. Drybrush of GW Leadbelcher

Gold:

  1. VLG Old Gold coat (for the Plague Night Lords, including this contemptor, this is instead VLG Red Gold)
  2. Drenched in Army Painter (AP) Strong Tone wash
  3. Light drybrush with GW Leadbelcher

Red parts (NL symbol wings, cables, etc.):

  1. 1:1 mix of GW Mechrite Red with GW Caliban Green (for the Plague Night Lords, including this contemptor, I use GW Bugman's Glow instead of Mechrite Red)
  2. highlight of GW Mechrite Red (Bugman's Glow instead of Mechrite Red)
  3. Edge Highlight with 1:1 GW mix of Mechrite Red with GW Macharius Solar Orange (GW Elf Flesh instead of the orange)

Bone:

  1. Base of GW Rhinox Hide
  2. Drybrush of GW Baneblade Brown
  3. Wash of AP Strong Tone 
  4. Drybrush of 1:1 mix of GW Baneblade Brown and VGC Off White

Lights + OSL:

  1. Base of GW Ceramite White
  2. 2nd base of VMA Light Sea Blue
  3. Light spray of 3:1 mix of SAL and VMA Light Sea Blue
  4. Light spray of 6:4:1 mix of SAL, VGC Off White and VMA Light Sea Blue in the middle areas of the glow.

Skin:

  1. Base of GW Bugman's Glow
  2. Thick highlight of a 1:1 mix of GW Bugman's Glow and GW Elf Flesh
  3. Highlights with GW Elf Flesh
  4. Wash with a 6:1:1 of GW Lahmian Medium, GW Rhinox Hide and GW Red Gore

Blood:

  • Variable mixtures of GW Blood for the Blood God, GW Rhinox Hide, GW Lahmian Medium, GW Red Gore, and Tamiya X-27 Clear Red 

I hope this answers some questions I've been asked. biggrin.pngthumbsup.gif

 

Thanks again for all the comments on the LoS - I really appreciated them, and especially those with constructive feedback about the OSL from his eyes, you guys made me go the extra mile with him!

Apologies, but I finished the Contemptor. This was last night, but I can only make decent pics when it when it's light out. So here goes.

 

More pics here in my showcase.

Thanks guys!

 

With the CoC over for me, I can finally start something I've been dreaming about in the last couple of months. Actually since IA13 came out... a Rapier battery of three quad heavy bolters. With an average of 6-7 MEQ kills per turn and 12 T7 wounds and a 3+ save for a mere 120 points, these things are more OP than a Knight in a 1000 points battle.

 

I plan on giving all of them an interesting base with some cover, but of course I'll also buy an aegis defence line for them.

 

So here's some preliminary shots:

Thanks guys! Pics of the finished rapier can be found here.

 

As this is a WIP thread, I'll from now on just post a link to the finished models in my Showcase thread. I know most Frater just post pics of finished models in their WIP, but I've been having separate threads for so long it feels weird to switch now. 

 

ANYWAY - I've started my first squad of World Eaters. Thanks to some very good feedback from our Resident World Eater KrautScientist over at my showcase (he told me the marines on my Rapier Battery didn't look VotLW enough msn-wink.gif ), I decided to make each and every one of these bad boys a character in their own right. I'm not sure if I can stop myself from at least painting two at the same time, but I'll try. The thing is, with the Valejo Liquid Gold paints I'm using, it's very hard to dose, as you cannot paint these paints out of the pot. You have to pour them in a small containter and paint from that. And as the paint is suuuuuper liquid AND it evaporates super fast due to the alcohol thinning liquid, you cannot pour or work with small dosages. The smallest dosage I've ever managed to work with yielded at least half the trim of a contemptor. 

 

Before I get ahead of myself about painting them, I need to build the berzerkers. So here's my first quick build. I'm still not comfortable glueing small parts together using plastic or super glue (small as in tiny details the size of a frag grenade) - especially when it's resin to plastic. So I've only kitbashed a little. No conversions yet.

Two nights ago, KrautScientist gave me two pieces of advice. They've both turned out to be some of the best advice I've had in years, hobby-wise. First, he told me to see each Space Marine as a character in itself. And it's been a stellar experience. Suddenly I got the infantry vibe flowing again, creating models like I did a couple years back. Getting poses exactly as I want them, putting small details on 'm, everything. They come to life in my hands! The second piece of advice is to use WFB chaos warrior arms+ weapons to affix the FW chain axe heads to. Lemme show you what I mean:

Everybody knows and loves these:
WP_20150114_003_zpsc19440e2.jpg

But how to affix them to your models in a sturdy manner? Most of us have tried something like this:

WP_20150114_004_zpse70a3316.jpg

But the best method is this (remember to pin them using a 1mm rod of paperclip):

WP_20150114_002_zpsc50ba949.jpg


Now that that is out of the way, lemme show you the three Khorne Berzerkers I've made so far...

 

BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!!

You've seen this guy:
KhorneBerzerker2_zpsd7baf950.jpg

This was number two:
KhorneBerzerker3_zps19022ad5.jpg

And this is number three (I swear to khorne I bought these MkIII bits from ebay three years ago, in a naive presumption that they were the genuine product (I didn't even know what recasting was back then, as I had just re-started the hobby))
KhorneBerzerker1_zpsdb66562a.jpg

They're not glued yet, but they will be soon enough. I have a wonderful method of trying and then pre-fixing everything with poster buddy, so as to get the best pose and bits.

Hope you like, lemme know what you think! C&C always welcome. biggrin.pngthumbsup.gif

@ElDuderino: Great idea to mix the DV guys!
