<April>, Update <1>.

I took some pictures of this month's painting projects. I haven't sprayed them yet in these pictures, as I wanted to do a before/after kind of setup.

Anyway, here's what's up for this month.

Chaos Space Marines (12)
(note that there is a Sorcerer with the unit in this picture)
Posted Image

But they aren't the most important thing, oh no. That's my Sorcerer.

Posted Image

Posted Image

He's one of my favourite converted models as he was so simple to do, and yet looks so good.
His components are:
Kronus body (or whatever he is called. I forget now.)
Chaos Havoc helmet
Chaos marine arm and shoulder pad
Warriors of Chaos sword hand.

Posted Image

Note the use of a Chaos Warrior sword for his force weapon. I was surprised it fit so nicely.

The next update will be concerned with the painting of the aforementioned sorcerer, so any tips before I start would be most welcome. I really need to know how to do mud effects on marine armour.
Thanks for your time, and I'll post more pics in a week or so.

Fairly easy, I found. All you need is a good modelling knife, though having said that I was a little careless when I did it, so I had to have tissues handy. In any case, it's a simple job. Hope that helps!

Thanks man, I prefer simple conversions - less chance of me severing my thumb that way. I'll have to keep an eye on your thread, I remember being very impressed with the stuff on it.

The Sorcerer:

Apologies if the pictures are poor, it seems that my camera needs a bit of maintenance.


Anyway, here is the sorcerer with his finished paint scheme. I am particularly proud of the Chaos Star on his chest; it's top point ends on the marine's helmet. The reason I am proud of it? I didn't mess it up.

I just had a look at this last photo, and annoyingly, the highlights on the sword don't show. They are Burnished gold, incidentally, on a base of Boltgun Metal washed twice with Gryphonne Sepia. It looks pretty good when you aren't viewing it second-hand, although that opinion is about 70% personal bias...


Next update will be concerned with my rank-and-file, the Chaos Space Marines. At least, if I can get my camera to work it will.

Nice work man. The sorcerer is look good, such a simple thing, I didn't realise what he was composed of at first.

I like the guy with the melta and pistol as well. If you want any tips for the painting just ask.

I was thinking of doing my NL raptors I'm working on for the call but I can't afford to do a second thing so I think I'll just wait until the next one. Anyway keep up the good work :D

I could use some help with the mud effects for my rank-and-file, if you know anything for that.

Can't wait for you to finally finish that army, played a few times and gotta admit, it's pretty good. Of course what I have up my sleeves is going to be awesome and I think you will dig it the most.

<May>, Update <3>.

Right, because a certain Ashe Darke won't leave me alone...

Here is my finished banner bearer, for my CSM squad. Originally, his rag would have had the Iron Wariors skull on it, until I realised that painting such a thing freehand was far beyond me.

In answer to the guy who asked about the shoulder trim on the sorcerer's shoulder, it's Dwarf Bronze with a thin wash of Devlan Mud. I'll be honest, I cut corners wherever possible.

A frontal view of Banner man.

His banner, from a WFB Chaos Warrior sprue.

And some general views.

Will get started as soon as humanly possible on the squad, I have AS levels to attend to at this point.
As ever, comments, questions, suggestions etc. most welcome.

That so? I'll have to keep my eyes open, then. I'm assuming it's a Chaos-based surprise?

Nice Banner man. Nice banner to ;) Although I don't know what is scarier, the Iron Warrior or the huge lizard in the background!

Why, thank you! I'm glad you like it.


Also, as a general question directed at everyone, what would be the best way of showing heat damage on meltas? I have seen it done before (effectively a brown bit on the shooty end of the weapon) but am not entirely sure how to go about it. Ideas, folks?

I've got about 11 of these guys to do before the unit is finished (I think I will do them in groups of 5)
Also, you probably won't be seeing these guys in store until they're done, so you may have to wait a bit...

Then I believe you need to devote more time to your chaos space marines. I haven't had a game against you in ages and I have several armies getting ready to play again
