Hi!

While tring to kill time waiting for Etl's results, let me show you some results of the Etl

 

Here on B&C you may find all kinds of marvelous armies, with legendary background, incredible conversions and unbelievable paint jobs.

I, for a change, will offer you a journey into a sonic weapons / bikers heavy army who at best goes for a little more then 6 and half out of ten in all the previously nominated fields. Which, by the way, is thematically appropriate (Slaanesh) as the vote should be near 6,666666666666...etc ^^

 

So, (not so well taken, better to come) pics first! 

gallery_92981_12014_1127990.jpg
gallery_92981_12014_1608459.jpg
gallery_92981_12014_527697.jpg

Most of the army (everything excluded the actual noise marines, the hellbrute and a couple of characters) was unpainted or even unconstructed before this year ETL (Thank you Semper, and all of you(and my wife), wonderful event!)

 

A bit of background

Long story short, they are posers. Nobody knows exactly how it started, but a chaos lord was a freaky fan of Fulgrim and had an obsession for sonic weaponry, even if he was not a part of the original Emperor's Children legion. So he simply sought after renegades warriors and the equipment and implants of fallen noise marines to make the warband of his dreams. More concerned with finding the perfect and loudest sound of the galaxy then to seek victory or glory he eventually became a spawn (included in the army, guess which one!).

His successor was only a bit smarter, but the warband was to crumble if not for a Sorcerer (without the mark of Slaanesh) that now subtlety manipulates the new lord into doing his bidding.

 

More story to follow

 

And now...modeling problems:

HOW SHOULD I BASE THEM??

 

(options are red sand, putty heavy/demonic flash bases or...well, any suggestions? What goes with pink?)

Nice colour on these guys!

As for the bases, I'd go for creepy fleshy bases, but perhaps in some bright unnatural colours that will contrast with that of the armour?

Thanks for the suggestions!

Maybe I can combine some red sand with putty and the special "creepy mutated flash" recipe I managed to found during this project!

 

it's vallejo death flash (if i remind correctly) and Citadel Druchii Violet Shade

 

the mixture in action with my custom obliterators flash

20160815 110316
20160815 110232
 
(more on them later)
 
another example and maybe more close to the desired result as fumes and mutations on one of the biker sorcerers; unfortunately no good pics of that yet
 

 

I think it worked good as mutated flash, it gives me a strange, almost shivering feeling. I would really like the "as we advance the terrain itself mutate feel!

 

Suggestion on this topic are very welcome

Smexy. One more of us, one less of them.

 

I would recommend a fairly neutral grey base, so as not to draw attention away from or to clash with your pinkments.

 

EDIT - I wonder if you would do me a favour, old love? How tall/wide is the Hellflayer, not counting the Exalted Alluress or her weapons?

 

I plan my armies before I buy them, which includes planning storage/transport, so I need to know how many Hellflayers I can fit into a 12x15" foam tray and what depth that tray needs to be.

 

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Seems a sensible response, still I'm tempted...Maybe neutral base with some flashy bits...I love mutated flashy bits as the next slaaneshi

 

EDIT - I wonder if you would do me a favour, old love? How tall/wide is the Hellflayer, not counting the Exalted Alluress or her weapons?

 

Sure, as soon as I can I will give you all your precious measurements (cm or inches?).  I must mention the model itself can be easy magnetized to split in 2 (2 steeds per part, unfortunately, maybe better to keep it all together)

 

Well, on a only slightly related topic, let's talk about the Helldrake!

 

my approach

20160815 112300
 
Bat-Drake! O maybe more Hell-Bat! Or maybe "Love son of Bruce Wayne, a proper Helldrake and a Noise Marine"
 
So, I guessed the original model was pretty ok (yeah, I have easy going tastes) but when I finally started to work with it i discover that
 
1) the hollow body is't great but I can live with that
 
2) It fitted very well with the Zombie Dragon Bat head and his screaming pose/theme (but I don't like that tongue)
 
3) It's a shameful waste of great bits!
 
The claws and the small back legs can have a lot of better uses then disappear in the model; much more if you take account that, when you finally notice the small back legs, it suddenly becomes a turtle with an iron delta-plane implant...
 
The talons on the wings are easily unnoticed...again for the better, as they seem to suffer from a bit of "Tyrannosaurus syndrome" themselves.
 
So I go for a "minimal" approach; my Helldrake is a screaming bat, and I think it has the good line of the dragon without its awkward parts
Also fits with the army noise weaponry and so Slaanesh^^
 
What do you think?
 
(better pics soon)

Grazie mille.

 

Either cm or inches is fine.

 

My dudes are purple, but you can see how grey bases look with them in my WIP thread. http://www.bolterand...mies-on-parade/

 

It doesn't compete and nicely contrasts, IMO. My dudes are also quite dark, so it brightens the whole thing up a bit.

Can we have some close-up photos?

For basing how about lush grass or Wraithbone? Have them fighting on a maidenworld.

There is somebody here who based their daemons with grass and painted it up to look like the daemon was leaving footprints behind them, burned into the grass. It looked awesome, but intensive.

I've done it as if the grass was burning away from them, rather than them leaving burned footprints, but if you could do that...fantastic.

@Res Ipsa Loquitur: first thing, the hellflayer measurements are

18 cm long (including the steed's tongue)()

16 cm large (including the blades, around 12 without them)(6.2")

 7 cm high (not including the passenger)(2.5")

 

make it 19x17x8 to be sure

 

rest later

Ooooook, it's been  a long day^^

About the bases, I'm still undecided... I discovered that the Genova GW store will host an "Armies on Parade" so maybe I can get a goo idea for a display base and the relative models bases....

I like the footprints idea, but skill requirement for a good result scare me a bit

 

I have some pics of the HellBat as requested, Master Kierdale (yes, I'm a fan, yes also for the spawns, no I don't want to remember, yes I'm remembering and yes now I'm freaked out)

Quality is as bad as could be, still bearable as I followed some tips from your thread on photos from mobile

 

here they are

Hey, the legs are missing! Did you notice? I almost didn't an surely don't miss them

As requested from Dragonlover, who also got a preview...

 

Introducing the first and the wildest of my Sorcerer's Cabal

 

Baaltasar the Magnificent, ex librarian of the III Legion

 

gallery_92981_12326_493614.jpg

(Gods, he really deserves better pictures)

gallery_92981_12326_547721.jpg

Actually, this one is not so bad

 

Conversion itself and paintjob could have been better, but I kinda like him.

 

The idea started obvioulsy from DoomRider(!!!), expecially this

b6348219651f73c9ee010be50843adbe.jpg

 

I needed some Biker Sorcerers for a sweet cabal, so the idea almost came naturally

Then I suddenly thought about rearing up the bike

 

The brazier idea came up after I suddenly remembered a Rammstein concert my wife brought me to... (that gave me a lifetime of flame related 40k conversion ideas)

 

the head I found was good but i needed a more Caotic look, so i added the horn-mutation

 

Cape was mandatory.

 

that leaved me with the weapon...I wanted some hybrid between a staff and an axe, so I did this

 

gallery_92981_12326_249498.jpg

Seemed "Emperor's Children" enough ^^

gallery_92981_12326_314196.jpg

 

gallery_92981_12326_663242.jpg(maybe too close)

 

Overall I'm really happy with him...except for....the "feet of shame" 

gallery_92981_12326_526485.jpg

 

I really should not show this pic, but maybe you can suggest a fix.

Obviously I carefully planned legs reposition, posing with bluetac and so on...then, when time of the glue came this happened!

A small shift in position made the mess

 

So, conversion doctors, the least messy solution is?

Rammstein literally set fire to the MEN Arena's ceiling when I saw them.

 

Good times.

Legs and claws are very good bits, should look good for a hellbrute, but I guess the best use is on a Knight.

 

For now i will simply hoard them, and look around for inspiration (maybe B&C galleries would helpmsn-wink.gif )

I hope self WIP post necromancy is not against forum rules^^;;

 

Looong time not active in the hobby...well, I have done something, but now I want to show you my (not) awesome last titanic creation work... 3 miniatures!!

 

I was playing around some "Slaanesh terminators gladiators". Not the Khorne guys, who just want blood mixed with sand, but some real artists who prioritize on set a good show

 

I had the AoS base set and some eldar/necrons/chaos scraps, plus some "high value" bits...

 

so

 

20171208 035512
The first one is your average 10k years veteran, with a prosthetic hand in a lovely "Verso Pollice" gesture (yes, the hollywood movies one, I know it's not historically accurate^^)
20171208 035717
The other is my favorite, because of the mace, probably
20171208 035817
The third one is in a "Cheer the audience" pose
 
I'm currently painting them (no less!) so here's a WIP shot (awful quality as usual)
 
IMG 20171211 WA0003

 

 Hope you like them
