At just over two hours, that is positively rude. How do you do it? I could easily spend that long just trying to get one head to look as good as yours.

I've become a Contrast convert. Nothing on those is traditional paint other than some Phoenician Purple thinned and glazed over Magos Purple for the carapace.

The paint is still drying on the Carnifex count as, but it is done, and with it this months vow is complete. Will post pictures in the morning.

 

Edit: Picture time.

Carnifex from various angles

Spoiler

 

 


Ace treeman conversion! Got any closer up pics of the biovore and mines?

 

                 

 

Here are some better shots of the biovores. They are converted out of Kurnoth hunters, the legs became the forelimbs, the arms and some greenstuff became the back limbs, some Tyranid gun (from the drop pod thing I think) went where the neck and head goes and the head went onto some of the branches that normally form part of the back.  The Spore mines are just the little critters from the Kurnoth hunter kit that go with the bow version.

Unfortunately I haven't been very well this weekend so didn't get to look for my next vow, but if it makes anyone feel any better a lot of other things didn't get done either... ermm.gif

Well, if there's plenty of time to get eight genestealers done, I'm going to pledge four of them (for 3.2 PL), for completion before the end of October.

 

genestealers

 

These are the first of my old Space Hulk 'stealers to get the meths treatment, so that I can bring them in line with the rest of my Cult force. Only twenty more to go after this, with every chance that there'll still be some to finish off as part of Bug's Life 2022...
