Greetings, welcome to my thread where I'll dump the things I'm slowly working on.

 

Currently I'm muddling around with a HH NL force just as a break from my 40K & AT, maybe I'll be able to play it one day. These are the first models I've used an airbrush and oils on so C&C is welcome!

 

Praetor

Night Raptors

Half a Terror Squad

I've got one and a half terror squads, a chaplain, an apothecary, a contemptor and five more night raptors WIP

More of Curze's loons is always good.

 

Especially as these ones are very well-painted

Excellent works.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' 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.

As a treat for doing a squad, next up is this happy little contemptor.

Excellent work on the Terror Squad. The Contemptor looks most promising with his many trophies.

Great to see you starting up a thread, I've enjoyed following your content on Instagram and in the 30k chat. These chaps are well painted and the Raptors are well converted. I like the Terror squad poses as well. I'm not completely sold on the Contemptor's pose, but I'm looking forward to seeing you paint it and tackle the trophies.

Thanks Pearson, appreciate all your support! I agree, the pose is not as dynamic as I'd liked - I should have had some blutack to try out stances.

Hopefully a better picture will help somewhat too! The arms are magnetised as well.

 

Unfortunately I have lent out my BFTBG so the gore will have to wait a little while.

Next up is probably some more night raptors once my MKIV assault weapons arrive.

The paint and weathering are well-applied. I eagerly await seeing the Contemptor bloodstained and gory. Will you get a Primaris Marine model, messily saw it in half, and green stuff some entrails to decorate the Dreadnought's base?

Solid paint job on the Contemptor, quick too! I'm looking forward to seeing some gore on there.

Thanks! 30k is new and exciting to me, I'm sure I'll slow down to my usual painting pace eventually. 

 

Spent tonight building more Night Raptors - had a much easier time thanks to switching the front half of the raptor torsos for mkIV ones, and mostly arming them using the FW power weapons set. Also means less trim to paint so a nice double win there.
 
Also bodging up a librarian because it's nice to have one of every consul, right?

The new Raptors look good, cutting down on the trim will be a godsend, the chaos kits are a bit of a nightmare to paint! That Dark Vengeance Librarian works well for the Night Lords, the cowled head gives a sinister feel to the piece.

Had some trouble with my airbrush which has delayed getting my real dudes done - but I did manage to dig this old guy out, strip it, and recommission for the VIII.

Liking the weathering and chipping on the Tarantula, it's not a model I often see, but it's a nice little piece.

Nice job on the Librarian, the hourglass icon on the leg is really nicely done.

Great work Gore Crow! Is your name inspired by the Abhorsen series by any chance?

The Librarian looks impressively intimidating. Is he Force choking an Imperial lapdog?

It's the name of my Adeptus Titanicus legio - but GW may well have gotten it from there!

You bet! That or innocent civilians...

Very glad you removed that derpy Praetor head that the stock kit comes with. If I might offer some suggestion; the loin cloth metallics are very shiny and blend in with the rest. Maybe to differentiate that it's slightly different type of iron/metal, give it a wash of some brown/earth tones? Avoiding the hooks, to make them pop.

Thanks I gave it a wash of agrax, it looks much better. The sheer amount of light I'm blasting at them for my pictures may also be washing them out
