Excellent work.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

I like the nuclear grenades on the harness.

I like the nuclear grenades on the harness.

Yep, part of the background I thought up for these guys.

As "leftovers"/Pile of Shame from the primaris project, they still hang around with Cawl and his forces. Even if their weaponry is not the healthiest (the grenades might as well be Radium grenades) and the 10k years of tinkering produced quite a few specimens in need of a mind wipe/bionic replacements, they are still capable enough to shower the enemies of the Omnissiah with lead.

 

Besides the armigers currently on the painting table, I'm converting a regular primaris chaplain to an iron father. I mean, that guy already has a skull mask, how could I not take that guy and improve him a bit?

Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.

Yep, and it even works on layered armour. Two out of 3 Moirax are done, the last one (volkite) is currently taking its soap bath...

Those look great and I'm impressed with how fast they were painted.

Yeah, let's say ETL is motivating me to work on that pretty much all afternoon. Usually I'm too lazy for that.

 

Besides, the paint scheme is rather basic in terms of complexity.

-flat brush wet blending for armour plates - maybe 2h for both, rather less than that

-drybrush metal on the dark parts, paint metal surfaces (Boltgun, Retribution), nuln oil wash

-glowing parts get painted Ceramite white, then 2 layers of Waywatcher green. A lot brighter and more vibrant than layered effects or airbrush.

 

That's mostly it, except for certain details. Bases are drybrushing grey in 2 steps, doing the lava in 5 layers (2 white, 3 Ryza rust) and drybrushing the surroundings in Ryza too.

Looks good enough, and it's fast enough to actually build a playable army with that scheme.

Great job on the Armigers, MajorNese.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

Third (and for now final) armiger is done, as well as a chaplain converted to Iron Father:

 

aimg_10538hjfu.jpgaimg_10520fjbl.jpg

 

With ETL over for me, I'll go back to actual AdMech units. GW not releasing the IH and RG supplement leave me without a complete codex anyway, which makes AdMech a lot more focused.

 

First thing will be finishing that half-painted Manipulus, and assembling/painting that Termite. After that, I'll order some of the transports and fill up on TPEs with the old metal models, to get all 3 TPE variants instead of random FW Mechanicum dudes.

Great job! The Chaplain-turned-Iron Father is an especially good idea.

Thank you. The conversion was not too complicated, most details added up from the start. And after a while, the bitz box has a ridiculous amount of rare parts, like the Draykavac head...

 

Considering chaplains got usable even for ranged units, that should be somewhat playable once the supplement drops. But that's a topic for later, first off I'll fill up my AdMech...

Progress...

 

First off, I've added Feirros to the mix, with only minor conversions.

 

aimg_8878rfjua.jpg

 

Also I have a Krios around, to cast the lowest 2cm of the tracks to add them to the skorpius tanks. I intend to make enclosed transports that will look a bit like the java land crawlers from Star Wars, I guess this should fit our aesthetics nicely. Once the casting is done, the krios will be painted up and used as an IH vindicator, joining the macrocarid.

 

Also, with Armies on Parade around the corner, this year's board is beginning to shape up. Since that pic, I've carved up the landscape for a more interesting look, but it still needs the backdrop - a mountain wall with opened gate, with the ordinatus driving out.

First time working with a hot wire cutter. Not bad, considering how quick and easy that is. Unlike the cutter knife, that promptly broke off and continued its trajectory into my leg. Thankfully there was just a few millimeter of blade left, nothing bad. But a sign to just use the hot wire thingy...

 

Nonetheless, main floor got some structure, with spaces earmarked for the knights. Gate is glued too, and the large back plate is being glued to the floor. Next step would be to figure out how the top mountain range should look like - how high, and how high/long/wide the platform for the Iron Father and his Gorgon bodyguard should be.

...aaaand I'm done. A few days early, not bad - considering the room looks like a hobby shop after an earthquake.
