Chaos.

 

It has been called the Primordial Truth.

As it turns out, that is quite accurate. For me, at least. 

 

Since joining the B&C, I have dabbled in other..Things. I have tried to upkeep clever Project logs.  

I have spread my painting across Sub Forums. And left them there as the Things from beyond the Veil vied for my attention again.

 

I have dipped my toes into Mechanicus…

and  it goes dark… 

 

gallery_66914_8104_221021.jpg

 

I still think it needs more Spikes.

 

and gets sidelined by other Things. Mostly spikey Things.

 

Chaos. It happens to my painting table. Quite frequently.

And all this crazy stuff lately. Necromunda. Titanicus. 

 

I even tried my Hand at Shadow War. Shadow War Badab. It has traitors. Well, almost…

Then Chaos happens. Sooner or later, the B&C will issue the Call. And everything  turns dark and spikey. Again.

So, let the great Purge return my derelict blog attempts to be dissolved by the Primordial Annihilator.

 

From now on, I shall channel my otherwordly painting efforts in  this ongoing Prayer thread as i walk the Eightfold Path...

 

 

 

and as the Great Wheel turns and the Eye opens,  

 

Let the Galaxy burn!

 

Shudder at what is coming ….

No one remains pure for ever, brother, the Gods mark us all. 

 

A really nice range of models there, I particularly like the chainfist/flamer of the terminator lord; the metallic painting of the Maulerfiend and the Ogre conversion.

 

Looking forward to seeing more.

Bit of "Road to Killteam" update here…

 

With Killteam just around  the Corner back then  and the Shadow War Badab Competition some time ago, I thought that it was a good opportunity to get some painting going again…

 

I also wanted to look into a few ideas for the Primaris in the DI box but -as usual- drifted between several chapters. Having the Option to choose from the current  and RT era Colours didn`t help. In the end, I thought Executioners too "lazy" for a Competition (i like doing metals) and Carcharadons too daunting. The fact that there are several quite impressive versions of both chapters around the board already came into Play here also. (e.g. Malchy`s White Faces and Valrak`s lot), So, I was determined to look into Mantis Warriors.

 

As usual, I got in way over head - especially after I developed the idea of combining both heraldries. My idea was to use the current Colours on the warplate and have the Tranquility pattern camo on, well, camo cloaks. Thus I aimed at creating a small killteam made  from Tranquility Veterans.

I seriously underestimated greenstuffing camo cloaks -  which made me fail the Deadline. It vastly increased my meagre GS skills however, which will feature in my take of Pox Walkers later on.

The pics are not great. I did themmostly to referenceprogress and get some overview.  I still like the idea and may use it on some Primaris some day.

They are also a bit too Astra Militarum in those hushed Colours to my taste....

Still, I got some nice experience with this shade of green from something called "Mecha Colour". It didn`t quite turn out to be the Vibrant green I was after for the Mantis Warriors,

but it feels just for my Death Guard...

I'd definitely say Chaos has its hooks into. As someone who played Warmachine for a while, there's a bit too much helljack in that magos conversion for my taste, but everything else looks great. May I humbly suggest an alternative for your cloaks?

Thanks for the heads up . That is a really well done tutorial there, especially in regard to the folding of the fabric. I will certainly give it a try.

Actually, I think a lot of what kept me from finishing my Magos was that I felt it needed some robes but didn't want to drown the model in green stuff ;)

Thanks, and I hope it's useful. I like the technique because it's much more forgiving than greenstuff and makes cloth much closer to scale thickness.
