Thanks, longjohnsilver. Just for you:

 

Space Hulk : Genestealer

 

Sadly, they're the only survivors from my original three sets - Hulk, Deathwing and Genestealer. I have no idea what happened to the terminator squads, or the rest of the librarians and hybrids; although my current terminators include ten from the second edition Hulk.

Another Call of Chaos vow. Hopefully I can finish this squad sooner than what the Plague Marines took :lol:

Just to give an update, the main body is near done, just have to add the cracks, then get the weapons done. Falcon body on the left is an example.

Thanks, longjohnsilver.


That librarian looks great. Next time you finish a model and set-up your camera could you do a close-up shot of the heraldry on the shoulder pad?

Is that an Amber wizard in the background there?

 

It's not so much a camera set-up as my mobile phone and a tabletop. But here's a couple of closer shots:

 

librarian 1
librarian 2
aggressor

 

This guy (Chief Librarian Nicodemus) dates from a time when my main inspiration was still the original painting guide for marines and personal heraldry and individualised armour was very much a thing. Hence the paint explosion on the shoulder pad. The little blue and white skull thing was intended as a psyker badge, but was later co-opted as a chapter symbol and appears on all of my later marines, like the aggressor here.

 

And to keep things relatively on topic, here's a work in progress for my magus:

Quick update, I have done all the legs, and the cloaks both inside and out up to the waist. As such I was able to finish the last assembly step and glue torso to legs. This should now make it easier to finish them as I nolonger have to keep track which legs belong to which torso whenever I pick one up.

Rogue, looking good on the Magus, what’s your recipe for the blue robe?

Thanks, Trokair. The robes are painted in line with one of Duncan's Cult tutorials - a Mechanicus Standard Grey base coat; then Stegadon Scale Green (which looks pretty blue to me) all over as a flat layer; then Agrax Earthshade all over; then several thinned-down layers of Thunderhawk Blue, starting on the ridges and flat surfaces, and gradually working into the folds so that it fades into the shadows. And then a final highlight with Dawnstone just along the sharp edges and bottom of the robe, but that's not done in this picture.

 

What are the massive guns on your rangers? I recognise the rifles and carbines in the back row, and the plasma caliver in the front, but what are the other three? They look seriously shooty.

Finished the Wave Serpent, wanted to have tri-cannon set up, but the weapon sprue is harder to come by these days.

 

Serpent final

 

I'm going to work on some none wargaming models for the rest of the month. Will comeback in Nov with a few more.

So the two on the left are two other special weapons, I have not fully decided but one will be a Rad Gun and the other a Suppression Laser. As for the weapons, the stock is a Necron Deathmark gun, then one use a spar bit from the Tech-Priest Dominus kit and the other uses two trimmed down Deathmark gun barrels.

 

The big guy on the right will be my plasma cannon, it’s a Grave cannon bit from the Kataphronkit added to a trimmed down Necron Tessla gun.

 

Some pictures below from when I built them

Edit: nice work on the Magos

Thanks again. I'm pretty pleased with him.

So what are the rad gun and suppression laser? They're not regular choices for the rangers. Are they forge world things? They look good though, neat conversions.

Ah, sorry for not explaining that part.

 

They are a count as Van Saar Gang. So the rifle and carbine are lasgun and las-carbine respectively, plasma is plasma and the pistol armed model is a Juve.

Van Saars makes more sense. Although I wouldn't fire that plasma rocket whilst on any kind of gantry - I can totally see him being thrown backwards over the edge on pure recoil.

 

And as I'm here, one more from me - the magus' little friend...

 

familiar

 

And looking at my workload over the next couple of weeks, that is definitely me done for the month (he tells himself, fairly firmly).

They are some nice conversions trokair! They'll make an impressive and intimidating van saar gang!

I'm liking the old school Terminator too rogue!

For me, Octobers vow is complete.

Here's an update of my (not so!) slow burn project.

There's still a few bits to do and I'm not sure if I like the tabbard/banner think it's a bit pink compared to the rest of the look.

Thanks Dwango. Nice job on the Plague marines. That knight is already looking really good, so I expect it to be stunning once it is finished. As for the tabard/banner, maybe just darken it a bit more, a wash of Agrath maybe.

Things have been hectic this month but heres my October vow. My first ever Ork(!). Always had a soft spot for the Greenskins, but in my younger years the cost of an army of Orks would have not been feasible. Since GW havent said a word about updating the Deathwatch I thought it would be a good time to start some Xenos. This will be a test fig of colours and a speed paint test. My orks will not be painted to the same standard as my DW. So except some sloppiness!
