And another convert to resin appears from the shadows. I suppose I can only blame my weak will smile.png

This will be my thread for my WIP of my Night Lords company, Nocte Canibus, the night hounds. A company almost entirely composed of Terran marines, it looks upon the actions of some within the legion with feelings close to disgust, horrified with what they have become. (Fluff to follow)

In part what draw me to this, which I had planned on getting into, was armies on parade. Hopefully that will give me the push I need to paint all the models up to a high standard, and doing so. (This also explains why there is a crashed thunderhawk board, I'm not just painting it for fun tongue.png)

For now, I hope you'll have a look at my stuff, and CnC is extremely welcome smile.png

And, just earlier this day, something large this way comes...

I promise the pictures will be smaller next time smile.png CnC would be appreciated

Hey mate :D

 

It looks awesome so far. I'd advise using either a white or black background to really emphasize the colours on your miniatures. Also, better light :).

Great stuff man and the crashed thunderhawk is a treat to paint up.
I also recommend with that Fellblade keep some liquid Greenstuff on hand 😎

@Teban, I'll look into sorting out a proper kinda photography set up, for now I'm using a bad camera in a bad place, so a change might make a good difference :P

 

@Helter, Thank you very much man :) Think I overdid the lightning a bit though, so I've cleared the left shoulder pad back to blue for a transfer.

 

With the fellblade, after going through the fire raptor I think it should be easier, but I remember the gs work on that... anywho, I have lots to hand. (speaking of which, I should put the Raptor up, but that doesn't want to be painted dry.png )

 

Only problem now is deciding if it's a crashed NL thunderhawk being attacked, or a crashed (probably BA or DA) thunderhawk being attacked by NL :/

 

 

Anyway, update for today...

 

My WIP on a Moritat and a Sergeant. I discovered the limitations of posing hands with MkIv plate, and as for the Moritat's right hand weapon, that's a volkite serpenta I say ph34r.png (for some reason the mkIV weapon set doesn't have one furious.gif so I created...something, which looks slightly too large)

And then my progress on Sevatar, not sure I like how the cloak has ended, so I'll probably give it another shot in a bit.

Some good looking stuff you have there Aeternas. thumbsup.gif

 

Would you consider posting slightly bigger pictures though? I feel your log would really benefit from it, as most fraters won't click each and every image to enlarge it to a more usable size.

 

I'm actually a fan of your kit bashed volkite serpenta. DE parts are really quite versatile, especially for Night Lords, Word Bearers and World Eaters. 

 

Keep up the good work.

 

Dallo

Thank you Dallo :)

 

Me and pictures have a complicated relationship. At the moment, the choice is small pictures (recent post) or huge pictures (first post). Both of these have disadvantages, but I am inclined for large to show off detail. Just didn't know if huge pictures would put people off :P

 

I do like the DE parts, the blades are wonderful, and I'm looking into some of the more exotic weapons, which certainly wouldn't look out of place.

 

In other news, I underestimated the fellblade kit. It's not quite at the fire raptor level...but trying to sort the sides out could be the death of me furious.gif

 

I had plans for a glaive as well, but I don't know if my sanity will be up for it laugh.png

Yeah, the Wyches have some interesting combat weapons that a budding VIIIth legionnaire could steal. Personally, I feel that the images in your first post are decently sized, though some would benefit from cropping out the boring stuff like carpet.

Is it going to be a Night Lord Thunderhawk, or something different? Perhaps one of the three loyalist legions at Isstvan 5?

Dallo.

the way it's shaping up, I plan to have the thunderhawk as a salamander, so scattered around it will be a few sallies in mk 2 and 3 armour, and a couple of raven gaurd in mk VI armour. All being slaughtered by the Haunter's sons ;)

 

Not much progress on the painting front, just about finished the fellblade. Got the sponsons to do, and also waiting on some instant mold for symbols and magnets for the sponsons.

 

Apart from that...had a bit of a go at Sevatar. His cloak is just about finished now :D *still got work to do though, hooks and such*

Thanks Kriegs :) Good to see you and your knights are back brother ;)

 

Reinforcements for the Cohort have arrived...and will be ready after a round of paint stripping and priming. The mark III will be salamanders, but the rest will all be in midnight clad.

Also, a new monstrosity has appeared...

And the first of the Legionnaires marches to war in midnight clad...mostly :D

 

Just a test subject for the first squad, all but the backpack, right shoulder, bonding studs and mesh done. CnC welcome, the whole point of this guy!

 

I am aware how...shiny he is, and he is currently going through a lahmian medium drowning process, and if that is ineffective a spray matte varnish. 

 

For reference, I was trying to base him off the massacre legion colour schemes.

Not much of an update today, whole lot has gone into basecoating, so pictures for that would be pointless :P 

Finally got my hands on some Instant mold to finish off my fellblade...

And lastly, managed to create one of the hq/praetor/centurions for my cohort. It was only after I gave him a shield that I realised the glaive is a two handed weapon :P oh well, he just has a very strong left hand.

Small update, finally broke out the board after a huuuuuuge amount of prep. One picture shows the base colour, the other shows the colour I'm making it. (brighter is the aim)

 

And managed to sculpt a small gs flayed flesh cloak for my character, because, well...do I have to justify it for the VIII legion? :P

 

 

Single base layer and wash

image.jpg2_zpsxel5dpat.jpg

Drybrush over base and wash (gonna wash it again)

image.jpg1_zpsweg5pgvg.jpg

Then the cloak. I feel it may be just a *bit* too large...oh well. he's skinned a lot of people :D

UPDATE TIME...YAY

 

so, done some work on some marines, a contemptor, the board. as usual, cnc welcome (nothing finished, but close to it)

 

I'm going to need more information about that cloak. Looks awesome

 

 

 Basically follow Augustus' tutorial on flayed skin, but for a much more stretched cloak shape. then before you put it on the model, use a fine hobby knife, and put lines around with scoring to imitate the sown together skin. then I just violently removed it from where it was, resulting in a few rips in the 'sowings'. all there really is :)

 

Skin cloak looks great. Awesome job with the green stuff.

 

Thanks very much :) 

 

Looking good man, that thunder hawk gonna be a crashed Salamander one?

It is indeed :D aiming for a kinda Istvaan scenario, so gonna have a few outnumbered and dying sallies surrounded by NL. 

 

So, here we have the marines, the contemptor, the current look at the board (shininess on windows due to fresh wash, and gonna add details and grittiness to hawk) and a close up of the green I'm using.

And to top it off, a question I pose. Do y'all reckon these marine heads fit Curze, scale wise? The raptor one seems to more than the other, but I'm suprised at how close they are. 

image.jpg7_zps5mcjh33c.jpg

image.jpg8_zps2fc3asbp.jpg

Thanks, and sorry for size/amount of pictures :/

Yeah I'd go with the terror head it seems to have a bit more personality when combined with curzes body. The raptor one doesn't quite seem to add enough.
