I too am honoured by the exchange of ideas and open conversation.
After trillions of zombie films, GoT, urotsukidoji, Dexter and many more series and movies, I've grown a stomach capable of holding my lunch. I've even come to associate imagery of death and cruelty with entertainment. I acknowledge that -in a way- this is quite sick, but it is the truth. As long as I know what I am looking at is fiction, I can say I can enjoy it. So to be honest, I'm actually quite interested in diorama, so if you have pics, and don't mind sharing them bring 'm.
Anyway, the contemptor is finished, except for the head. I just got a message from FW telling me the new Night Lords head set is on it's way. I love the cruelty implied in these helmets. A torso on a spike as a trophy would suit the helmet. However, until that time, I've experimented with blutac-ing different helmets on the dread. The MkIII helmet looks the best, but the trophy didn't quite look right with it. So I blutacked two small resin spikes that come with the FW chaos rhino extra armour on him.
OK, so thank you all: KrautScientist, Knight of the Raven, Uprising, Shuggnuggath, BassWave, MrBear, Flint13, JeffTibbetts, Brother Heinrich, Tarvik, Darth Mustard for the comments and contributions to the conversation about the torso. You've all made good points.
Let's finish the debate about the appropriateness of female torso's. Your comments helped me get to a satisfying solution that will keep everyone (most importantly, me ) happy. Your suggestions have all helped
I'll now respond to the comments about other things than the appropriatesness of the female torso.
First off, I love your night lords. They are exactly as I would image a night lord army to be like, and they are done to the highest standards humanly possible. The compentor is looking great, and can't wait to see it painted.
Thanks, I'm waiting for the head. As soon as it arrives, I'll choose which to use and start painting. Expect a finished model by the end of next week.
Nice models too.
Thanks for the encouragement, a plog may be launched after the holidays actually. I have had a workload from the Eye of Terror itself this last month and only one more marine has joined the other three but things are easing up now and I will have ten days off from today and should be able to do some more painting next week. Need to work on my fluff aswell though...
I can speak from recent experience and tell you that starting a plog can be extremely inspiring and an encouragement to your modelling projects. I applaud your plans to start one.
I love the new Contemptor. It bleeds brutality, and aggression. Can't wait to see it painted and with a head.
Thanks Tarvik! Soon...
Torsos, skin and scalp trophies are neither my cup of (Chinese green ) tea but they are parts of the NL background and you obviously enjoy using and modeling them so you should keep doing them. I think yours are really cool and clever and I like the creativity that you display through them.
Cheers! And by the way, I think your Space Marine Chapter's name, the "Procrastinators" is hilarious.
Such detail and planning for these is seriously impressive!
Love your style for the Night Lords!
Great work that I will be keeping an eye on
Thanks man. I'm glad you enjoy my work.
