That Sicaran is a beaut! I love your metal tones, they look really 3D, great from any angle.

Thanks again for the feedback, guys! I went ahead and did some proper weathering on the tank. Pictures below.

 

Update time - Picture heavy!

 

I finished the last five Flesh Hounds counts-as Dire Wolves.

 

temporary_zpsu7jp2obm.jpg

 

Together with their five previously painted buddies, they make a nice pack of ten!

 

temporary_zps8vxeuykz.jpg

 

Which means the first infantry unit is done for my Khorne Daemonkin army. And they're not even infantry!

 

I also took KrautScientist's advice and went ahead and applied some of those awesome transfers from the World Eater sheet on the Khornetemptor. Take a look:

 

XII on the shoulder

temporary_zpszndpnuee.jpg

 

XII on the kneepad

temporary_zpsjnvjpkbq.jpg

 

And I went ahead and put two of those nice golden warhounds on the sides of his sarcophagus. You´ll also notice I magnetized both arms.

Now, about the Sicaran´s weathering. How about this?

temporary_zpskkac4uf4.jpg

 

temporary_zps0awdlzeb.jpg

 

temporary_zpshdi3phjm.jpg

 

I hope this is more to your liking! I'm looking forward to your replies.

 

Oh, and I have only one more unit to finish for my second vow:

 

temporary_zps40qcliem.jpg

 

A Hell Talon. I've had it since forever - and bought two back then. The first one I painted in the winter of 2015, so over a year ago! The base is nowhere near done yet, but I hope to finish that today, after which I'll be going for a third vow. Gotta double my initial vow!

 

Thanks for looking - and I'm looking forward to your C&C. thumbsup.gif

 

Replies:

 

@ rednekkboss: Thanks for your sympathies re: the hobby mojo. smile.png How do you like the weathering on the Sciaran now?

 

@ Mechanist: Cheers, buddy! Good luck with your Knight and the mojo!

 

@ KrautScientist: Hmmmm, perhaps I should add some skulls.... Chains are out of the question, as that requires massive amounts of super glue, which would ruin the paint job. But spikes... they're easy. msn-wink.gif Not sure what you mean with the detail re: the Typhon's transfers. THey were just reallu huge transfers which I had to cut down and thus airbrushed the sides black. As the Sicaran's transfers are far smaller, no such thing is needed.

 

@ Pyroclast91: Wow, you read through the entire thread? How long did it take you?!?!?!

 

@ Der_H: Thanks buddy! Welcome here anytime. Comments, feedback, and C&C in general are a great inspiration for me, so please do.. thumbsup.gif

 

@ MagicMan: Thanks, buddy!

Wow that are some ugly puppies. But I guess that was what you were going for. Well done.

 

The Sicaran looks great as well. Are you sure you haven't dragged it through actual mud? That stuff looks so real.

Hounds look great full squad together should be impressive coming across the table.

 

Sicaran is looking much better, I'd be tempted to add a few more of the darker greasy streaks/smears just for consistency with the Typhon as there is noticeably more on the Typhon and the two side by side will look awesome.
 
Hell Talon should be good.

Lovely updates all around.

 

Hi gang! Sorry for my being quiete the last week - I'm experiencing a bot of a hobby burnout. My holiday has started and I'm far more interested in getting fit, enjoying friends and the sun - plus the occasional game of Watch Dogs, than actually getting some painting done.

I don't know what you're talking about.

 

*Achievement unlocked: play The Old Republic for 200 hours*

 

Shut up.

THans for the replies, gang!

 

@ Thousand Eyes: Cheers buddy! Next time, drink some coffee instead of the beforementioned C. ;)

 

@ Capt Carl: HAHAHA please, the SICK-aran is a real PUN-isher against jinking opponents. ;)

 

@ Quixus: I was, indeed. The mud is just Vallejo grey paste mixed with some Rhinox Hide and a bit of GW sand... 

 

@ Mechanist: More dark smears coming up. Along with some skulls. :tu:

 

@ Knight of the Raven: Oh man, KotOR is AWESOME!! Replayed that game about five times already...

 

@ Atia: Cheers, lady-bro! I really don't care about the flying stems, as the ones GW produces are fugly as frack. All my chaos flyers have self-made stems which I much prefer! :)

 

@ Kurama: Thanks buddy! You're progressing nicely too, I see. :tu:

Sure! They're made from 2mm thick steel wire I buy from a local arts and crafts shop. I bend it in a triangle (to use as the base), and then one end in a 80angle with the plane of said triagle - this will be the stem itself...

 

So the triangle (in red) is on the same XY plane as the oval base (in blue), while the stem itself is bent in a 80o angle with the base, so into the Z axis - if this makes sense.

XYZ_zpsp930vnap.jpg

 

I then hotglue the triangle on the stem, cover the base with some milliput, and place a piece of 5mm thick cork board with a hole over the base. That piece will function as the base for any other decorations, like the Imperial Minutorum sections as above. :tu:

The Khornetemptor is looking even more spectacular with those decals! I think you could even have gotten away with a bigger XII on the kneepad. The golden warhound badges on the Sarcophages are a lovely touch, though!

 


@ KrautScientist:  Not sure what you mean with the detail re: the Typhon's transfers. THey were just reallu huge transfers which I had to cut down and thus airbrushed the sides black. As the Sicaran's transfers are far smaller, no such thing is needed.

 

I was referring to those pretty big decals that you weathered down to make them look faded by age and grime. That was a fantastic, yet subtle, eyecatcher on the other tank, and the relatively tiny IW icons on the new tank's black side panels almost seem a little lost by comparison.

Ah! Yeah, I get that. The problem is there are few IW transfers on the sheet that are smaller than those that actually fit on the panels of the Sicaran. Those skulls where the biggest I got. I did do a lot of grime over these though. :)

Ah, I meant the MMORPG The Old Republic. I just can't have fun with Knights of the Old Republic when my female protagonist can't romance Bastila Shan I have to deal with the Dungeons & Dragons gameplay and dumb mandatory minigames.

 

Oh yeah, the post mustn't be about this alone.

Haha updated the title, Knight of the Raven. Good enough? ;) :P Just teasing, buddy. :)

 

Today I'll hopefully be finishing the Hell Talon. It's finally NOT super hot outside, so I'd rather have gone biking - unfortunately I got a flat tire almost immediately. Four (4!) (FOUR) inner tubes later, I finally discovered the wheel lint inside the wheel was worn, which was causing the ruptures. Demotivated, I started painting, and couldn't quite stop - so this day will be productive! Yay!

 

Here's the half-painted flyer with his twin, which I finished last year.

Boom! The Hell Talon is finished!

 

@ Thousand Eyes and Uveron: yeah, Hell Talons are great anti-flyer - flyers. So I guess in the new Dogfight rules they are fighters? I don't know. But for 115 points you get 4 S7 TL shots, with essentially tank hunter against one specific flyer. Plus they have a dumbed down form of Vector Dancer rule. They're pretty powerfull. I use them as exellent counters against my mates' double Storm Talon shenanigans.

 

Anyway, here's pictures!

How have you done the lightning effects? Just freehands?

Thanks! The lightning is done by spraying a 1:1 mix of VMA French Blue and VMA Light Sea Blue in a lightning-esque pattern, then following that pattern with a 0/10 brush with a 1:1 mix of WMA Light Sea Blue and VMA Barley Grey. It's slightly different from what I used to do with my Night Lords, but then again, this is the first Night lord unit I painted in 13 months - a Predator Annihilator in my second ETL IV vow, which I finished on June 21st 2015.

The lightning bolts and base on that Hellblade are particularly lovely! Fantastic work! Did you paint the cockpit windows solid red, though? I think I'd never forgo the advantage of a fully detailed, visible cockpit interior, to be honest...

 

Anyway, a fantastic addition to your force!

It's looking damn fine for it to! Pure awesome cutting through the night. Great work Mr Augustus!

How did you go about dealing with the canopy? Was it a chore? It's lovely glassy red.

I second the call for a Night Lords Hellblade from you ;)
