Started some assembly for Vow #5; I know, I know, vow #4 still needs to get painted.  Assembly/converting takes less required time for me, so I just do that at times I get brief 30 minute breaks in my day at home!

Those look awesome Armond! Might I ask what kind of putty you use? I do not recognize the colour. Also: what's your recipe for sculpting the bat wings? I always have trouble with that and yours look great.

It is the P3 putty, works pretty well, pretty much the same as other putties though, so nothing special to report on it.

 

It is pretty easy to do the wings, but I may have to draw up a tutorial for that one, hard to explain in words.  I will see what I can do!

Thanks for the reply, I might try it if I can get my hand son it here. I myself have had good experiences with 50/50 mix of green stuff and milliput.

 

Also, I would much appreciate the tut!

Those are great Armond! I think the guy charging with the heavy chainsword above his head is my favourite.

 

Just finished my Pyroclasts, and like  with the Phoenix Guard I have to say, they sure were a joy to paint.

Was browsing thru some material, thinking ahead a bit to some alternate Legion I had been considering, then I saw something like this in my searches:

 

10525807_10154357983180249_7357233319723

 

So I am considering putting together a Consul from the IX Legion, and am seriously on the fence about the above Second Founding symbol being found somewhere on the model.  Just a thought I was having, and he would be in my 5th vow if I finish my 4th.  Which speaking of, I have gotten the basecoat of blue down and the drybrushing I do.  Recon Squad is super easy because I do not want them in full Midnight Clad because they are supposed to be a bit stealthy, so the only part colored blue is one shoulder pad.

For the second part of my vow I've got a Forge Lord on a bike with a conversion beamer and the cyber-familiar. The way I was going to model this was to have it as a kind of attack bike set up, with the familiar as a hardwired servitor manning the beamer.

Is this legal (both in-game and in ETL)?

I'm not sure about the familiar bit... Have to check out the rules.

But you can still model it regardless. How we price it to make it legal is another question... :)

@Pyromancer- Thanks. Eight now and planning on adding some Imperial Fists to that too...

 

@Blissful Brushes- I don't see why that would be a problem ruleswise. The familiar rules say you can even model it on a separate base if you wish.

THE HANDS OF DEATH

So called for the terror markings daubed on his armour (in the ash of cremated foes), the master of signal for the 20th company is a fearsome sight to behold on the battlefield. With his axe rending apart any enemy that escapes the relentless barrages that he coordinates. The only noise to be transmitted through the vox from the grim figure is a static buzz, laced with bursts of maddening howls of joy and laughter as a missile strikes home. 

 

Many within his company say he would been better of a night lord, though the irony of their remarks was not wasted on him as the bolt shells of their cousins tore them apart. Reported m.i.a, the only piece of his armour still identifiable was his leering skull helm.

 

(sorry for the blurry pic, will take better ones when complete.)

 

this is my almost finished mos

Dang, BattleBrother, that's a really nice yellow you've made there. thumbsup.gif  I've been thinking of doing a 30K Imperial Fists army myself for a couple of months now  (after discovering a nice yellow recipe) What is your recipe for yellow?

Easy brother,

Its a Pict from the good Sergeants personal Servo Skull!

 

For my yellow I am using a variation of the Forge World recipe done entirely through an airbrush:

 

Base coat: White

 

First layer: 50/50 Flash Gits yellow / Blood Red

 

Second layer: 75/25 Flash Gitz  / Blood Red

 

Third layer: 100% flash Gitz 

 

Fourth layer: 75/25 Flash Gitz / Scar White

 

Fifth layer: Yellow ink (entire mini) 

 

Final step: Wash the entire mini in a thinned mix of Seraphin Sepia / Agrax Earthshade / Ard Coat (just a tiny amount, I find it helps it move off of the flat areas)

 

And that's it for my yellow

lastly, one negative issue: while the Strongpoint was fun to paint and finished in a day, that Wall of Martyrs proved tedious and I have to say I'm not too impressed with the design because of warped surfaces like these plastered all over it:

Is there a special rank for the most fortifications painted? msn-wink.gif

 

Whatever, I'm out. Your turn.

Some forward movement on the Javelin for my Night Lords Vow #4.  Sitting down with the Recon squad I realize just how little needs to be done, they are made for stealth and so black/grays are the way to go, with a small head nod towards the Legion colors.  No Lightning...  Minimal bright colors.  They are going to go quickly.

 

Anyway, enjoy.  Definitely not done though.

I know I've been behind on updates but that's due to lack of progress.  Here's at least some additional WIP to show that I haven't been completely neglecting the brush.

 

IMG_1897_zpsb992fe98.jpg

 

IMG_1894_zps0a296e38.jpg

 

The arms and shields on the medusans are getting closer to done so that squad could get finished off yet today.  The only other progress I can report is that the primarch's boots are now painted.

 

Maybe it's due to the fact that I bought an xbox.  Titanfall anyone?  But I digress, oh, do I so digress.  Beseech the emperor & the omnisiah for me brothers, the flesh is so very weak.

I'm speechless with the sheer awesomeness of this thread! I've run out of "likes" yet again...

 

Right...

 

@ Telhdrat: Those Pyroclasts rock! Great work with the reptilian skins and the flames - the green/yellow combo really worked here! :tu:

 

@ Battle8rother: You certainly have mastered the yellow. This is outstanding quality - and more so when it's done in such quantity. The banner looks very promising too. Let's this great effort of yours finished! 

 

@ Tear of the Raven: I have marked your vow complete but there seems to be a head and an arm missing from the pic. :unsure: Could you edit the post with those elements? 

 

@ Chaplain Mortis: This is some Contemptor man! Your work is fantastic - the weathering/battle damage and the gory chainfist are all making up a story! I think you visually captured the essence of the Iron Hands here...

 

@ Nehekhare: What can I say? With 8kpts you are currently the best candidate for the Forum Champion title (no special title for fortifications - sorry...) Well done sir!

 

@ Armond: this is coming along very nicely - beautiful midnight blue there - and more importantly the lightnings - they are they make or break for any NL mini - and in your case it's certainly a "make"! 

 

@ OMG: :blink: Those bases are fantastic! Wow! The minis are coming along nicely too (those Thallax poses are great) but those bases... wow!!!

 

UPDATED TO THIS POINT!
