Thanks for the replies, guys!

 

This is about an hour's work and the tank is of course in very early stages of coming together. What do you guys and gals think?

 

 

Looks great to me! I have to say, if Subtle Discord were to start selling just the extra armour as seen in the Predator kit, I'd be even more interested... Hint hint!

 

Cannot wait to see you paint that bad boy.

@The_Chaplain: haha no worries about that, mate. I'm dremmeling the turret hatch and copula off - and replacing it with a chaos rhino one. 

 

@Vesper: I will. It's so detailed. Really the only thing wrong with it is the dimensions, but they're too small to be a real bugger.

 

@mitchell_marine: Haha I know right!

 

@Chaeron: I PMd Subtle Discord your reply - because I totally agree with you.

Duoble post! :D

 

Did some work on the new predator, mostly raising the aft-side of the upper armour plate so that the turret can move freely and the roundy bits in the front can have working lights. I also removed the ridiculously small (from a space marine point of view) copula so that I can fit a space marine vehicle copula.

 

C&C welcome!

Yes yes yes! Looks more like how artists have envisioned the Predator, I'm thinking Tallarn: Executioner descriptions.

Been a while - I've become an uncle this weekend, as my sister gave birth to my healthy, farty and super cute niece Luka. :D :tu:

 

Today I got back to painting the fourth of six CoC units: the Eight Legged Lord of Skulls. 

 

As some of you might now, I absolutely dread painting red. Yet I've build a daemon engine that just screams Khorne and won't do in any other colour. So I forced myself to start painting this bad boy through a vow in the CoC... Today I started working on him.

 

The recipe is a base of Khorne Red, then thick highlights in Mephiston Red, then a shade in Rhinox Hide, and finally edge highlights in Jokaero Orange. Notice I only use Citadel Base colours, as I love the high opactity in mixing it with thinner and spraying it on. 

 

To my eternal chagrin, I was almost finished with a comple process of four repeated accounts of taping off one of the chest ridges on the LoK, and doing the four-colour recipe on it, then coating it with gloss varnish for strength. In an unguarded moment of impatience I pulled off the last tape too soon and YAY ME off came all the paint. Had to fracking rebasecoat the whole chestpiece. Did that and then called it a night. Tomorrow more work.

 

Here's some early WIP on the paint job. Sory for the bad pic quality, I'm bummed out by the accident and lighting sucks in my appartement. 

 

Feedback most welcome. Seriously, I fear I need it.

@Flint: Thanks! And the tank ;) OOOOH SNAP

 

@Viridia: Thanks mate! I totally agree Astartes tanks should look beefier.

 

@Chaeron: Cheers buddy. Dunno what you're talking about, but would love to read it - links appreciated!

First off, congratulations on uncle-hood! I know the pain of an accident putting you off your modelling stride too. I'm curious, what's the black hull going to end up as? Lots of brass/metallic colours?

Congratulations on the birth of your niece! That is amazing news! :)

 

As for the walker, that thing is going to rock so hard -- I am really looking forward to seeing it finished! Maybe it'll help you to know that Khornate models can be fun to paint, once the red is out of the way -- I am speaking from painful experience here... Anyway, looks like you're off to an amazing start!

 

And afterwards, the small Khornate warband, right...? ;)

@Viridia: Thanks! I'm still not sure how to do the lower body -the hull... either plein black with grey highlights, or metallic? What do you think?

 

@KrautScientist: Thanks buddy! You're right - the red is ok once you're through. I even think I'm going to do the Termies from the Space Hulk set this way. But it sure feels weird not doing blue. And be sure to keep an eye out for a couple of squads of eight Berzerkers and some Khornate chartacters... I have a Lord on Juggernaut lying around that is just waiting for paint... :tu: :D

 

I did the 'stomach' today. What do you think?

I'm not sure, but is the GW scheme all brass on the torso, with the furnace glow through the vents ? If not, that might be an idea, all rusty, blood splattered bronze......

 

ED: I'm guessing the whiteish grey tint is light reflecting off it in the pics ? It's really throwing me off the colour.

Black with the grey highlights sounds like an interesting contrast to the red.

For the Lord O' Skulls, I think the black with gray highlights would look pretty killer! Red and black berzerkers look awesome, so I can only assume something x20 their size will be several magnitudes of awesome greater.

 

Oh yeah, until Dragonlover said something, almost forgot about that Nurgle dread. I am salivating with anticipation over seeing that bro finished.

I fear I'll have to argue against the red and black -- sorry, but red and bronze/brass is the way to go. Anything else wouldn't be appropriate for the glorious XII legion. :)

@Oldschoolsoviet: Good idead to do something with the vents ;) And yes, that grey teint is flash glare - here's what he actually looks like. Hope you like!

 

@Viridia: I'll maybe do that on the hull on small details, but red and brass sounds like MOAR KHORNE! 

 

@helterskelter: Welcome, new minion ;) Seriously: I really appreciate the regularity of your visits and comments here -  they keep my hobby jive running!

 

@Dragonlover: He will be next! Not to worry - I'm just trying to get the right sand for the last bit of corrosion.

 

@Flint13: Red and Brass is what I'm going for, I agree with K-Sci on this one. Especially now that he's taking form. What do you think? And as said, the Nurgle Dread is next!

 

@KrautScientist: I've taken your word as a true foloower of Khorne (with some Nurglish tendencies lately tsk tsk) and gone full red and brass! Blood for the Blood God!

 

@Forte: Gonna go rusty metal and brass on the inner hull. Not to worry - the jive is back. ;)

 

 

Here's where I am now. Did this today, in between cooking a new years eve meal for a ton of friends tonight. Off to the party now. HAPPY NEW YEAR in advance. :D 

 

Let me know what you think?

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!
