Love the scorpions. The Chronomancer is a great conversion too, but I think maybe it might work better to give him some sort of whip tail legs instead of the tripod thing. I was thinking of using the whips from the wraith kit for this, though I haven't got round to it, and making a technomaner with that tripod leg style.

Fiiinally got around to painting one! My new phones picture processing is very off. Which is strange considering its a top of the line phone. So not a single colour seems really true to life unlike my old phone. I attempted these on the pro mode (no idea how to use it properly) . Its close enough lol.

WoW it's been a while since i looked here and boy you've been busy laugh.png ... 

Dang those scorpions wraiths are sweet, i wish i'd done that to my 3 but hey...future ideas thumbsup.gif

your paint work is great and the bronze/silver combo is still looking cool.

have you added any thing to your lord model?, I think his face is asking for a bright coloured stripe of your favourite faction colour right down the middle there cool.png

perhaps a gold stripe with turquoise trim?...

 

Cheers, Mithril

I do feel that the lord needs something more to stand out. Definitely something I'll tinker with once I've finished everything!

Unfortunately, I cannot claim any of the innovation here. I poached the wraith scorpions and triarch spider ideas from random people online.

But thank you so much!

Bank Holiday today here, so finally had a chance to actually do something! Was a mess trying to set all the legs, but its a cool model! Although I Have no idea why I even glued the antennae on. They will 100% break off.
Hopefully get a chance to paint the thing in the next year lol.

Well done, it looks great. Makes me want to get one for myself :)

You decided to make it more silvery and less bronzy than your other models?

Thanks! I really like the model. I'm considering getting another. You should definitely get one if you can lol.

I wanted more bronze, but I've painted all the shoulder and back armour/plates of everything else canoptek alloy, so it would look off having bronze on the top instead of silver. In my opinion anyways

Ive been a busy boy today! I slightly changed my tombstalker to add a bit more bronze on the back.

And I finished up my spider triarch stalker. I think i went a little overboard with the glow in the middle aha. Im not too fond of the top rear abdomen though. Not too sure what to do with it.

Oh yea. I hate painting the troops, so I plowed through 40 of them, added some HQ's.

 

I don't think my Crons are particularly 'stunning' though but I really enjoy playing them.

The basing is as easy as it gets. Just some small rocks I picked up from a rocky beach, glued to a base lol. Then just a dry brush and put some brown wash on small parts

I am so worried about converting anything anymore because I plan to play in tournaments. But these looks awesome.

 

I love the spure crystals. I would not have known that is where they come from if you did not mention it. I never know what to do with my bases.
