Many thanks.

It is a good kit. Though I admit I'm keeping some of the best bits for Noise Marines. The trim drove me a bit nuts but wouldn't have been so bad if I did it all one colour. Couldn't be doing that though could I ;)

Finally it's here. ETL III. We've all been talking about it and now we can get going so here's my starting point and I'll post my progress here too.

This was my first vow:
I, forte, answer the call of E TENEBRAE LUX and vow to complete from Codex: Chaos Space Marines: 1 Sorcerer (counts as Ahriman) and 1 Forgefiend with Ectoplasma head upgrade, for a total value of 430 points on or before August 1st.

Success will bring eternal glory to the Divine Flayers and Slaanesh while failure will doom me to bear the Badge of Shame until the year-end.


And here's how the prep has gone.
Sorcerer (count as Ahriman)
med_gallery_29004_9523_24349.jpg

Forgefiend. Which still need work for the weapon mounts.

I have a few questions I'd like to throw out the to you all.

  1. How much flayed flesh to put on the Sorcerer? I'm thinking a face on the right shoulder mainly.
  2. I'm thinking of adding flesh to the staff but do I a.) do it like the current GW chaos marine cables to look like a tube of flesh (intestine?) has been pulled over it, or b.) make it look like flesh has been wrapped and stitched or riveted together?
  3. Do I put flayed skin on the Forgefiend? I'm currently in the mind that the daemon engine wouldn't be bothered about that sort of thing and enjoy annihilating anyone who tried to add some on.

Your input is always respected and I look forward to any responses or ideas thanks.gif thumbsup.gif

1. Not too much, I would much more prefer so see some tomes with painted backs in flesh tones. It would be more fitting IMO. Perhaps a loincloth and a stripe or two of flayed flesh on the backpack with some glowing arcane text on it (Temple Guard Blue). 

 

2. Put some greenstuff around the cables or at best paint the handle in a fleshy texture. But not much flesh I would say.

 

3. Actually the Forgefiend has already some fleshy areas but I would favor more some gore and meat chunks on the base rather flayed skins on the hull. 


There is only the Truth. I do not know what it is, but I do believe in it!

Got some good ideas to work with here.

Had thought of painting the book like it's bound in skin of some kind. The cables on the model, I'd completely overlooked them for some reason. And I'll have another ready over the Forgefiend fluff as I vaguely remember something about them eating things to power their weapons. Looks like a use for some imperial bits.

So far these are the ideas/suggestions that are jumping out at me.

Sorcerer:
»Skin bound book
»Face belt/sash
»Skin covering cables like other current Chaos models
»Skin stitched round the staff
»Skin strips with glowing runes hanging from armour
»Face on shoulder
»Flesh masked Nurgling with tools instead of imp?

Forgefiend:
»Cultists chained to it and feeding the forge at the sides. Body parts in hand and on ground
»Slaanesh rune growing through top plate
»Kneeling cultist hacking at a body for parts. Beastman legs.

Great stuff from all and I'll hopefully get working on some of these tonight. Depending on anything else that gets added too :thanks: :tu:

+ + + ETL3 UPDATE 1 + + +

 

Here we go with my first update on my ETL3 vow. Not too much has happened really but I managed to get a bit of sculpting done last night and for the first time tried using a mix of Kneadatite (green stuff) and Milliput white. I can see why others do this as you do get more of the feel of green stuff but it cures rock hard. I do feel like I had too much of the Milli as it felt really firm and wasn't as easy to push around as usual. It's also a bit more prone to stick to your tools too.

I'll start with the bits I'm pretty happy with. Which are all on the Sorcerer.

med_gallery_29004_9523_128341.jpgmed_gallery_29004_9523_36090.jpg

med_gallery_29004_9523_40332.jpgmed_gallery_29004_9523_37697.jpg

Pretty happy with how the cables, belt, and shoulder turned out. The little book just had the skull detail removed and some liquid green stuff dabbed on for a bit of odd texture. I do still need to add nose bumps to both the faces (with the belt one being quite stretched). And I thought I'd add a picture of his little friend too, which is a really old GW scenery piece I've had since '96 (and it was catalogue only then).

I did try to add skin on the staff but the GS/Milli mix wouldn't really work that thin so next session will be pure GS.

Now onto the Forgefiend. I'm not 100% happy with how that went while trying to put the ideas into action. The rune on top is ok but I need to go back with GS and add the torn and broken metal around it. I added a SM torso, head, and arms to the base which is upright so they'll be a bit of a blood pool under it. Also changed the middle weapon mounts into odd fleshy mouths which look a bit odd but I'm planning to paint those with an OSL as if they are the way to feed the forge. Few joints need finishing and more base work to be done. Here he is so far.

med_gallery_29004_9523_101068.jpgmed_gallery_29004_9523_17796.jpg

And the rune so far

med_gallery_29004_9523_79687.jpg

Well there we go. Already 5 days gone and not even primed. Still quicker than usual for me on one of these.

As always thanks for your time. C&C is very welcome and be as critical as you like. So long as it's constructive. You may see something I've overlooked. And best of luck with your own vows (so long as it's to Chaos) thanks.gif thumbsup.gif

Bit of progress tonight and a few changes to the plans too.

First up. Forgefiend.
I still have to work on a cultist for the base but otherwise it's pretty much ready for priming now.
med_gallery_29004_9523_215881.jpg

Happier with the rune now too.

As for the sorcerer. I added a nose to the shoulder face and decided to stop there. Rather than skin on the staff I'm thinking a dark marble.

Let me know what you think. And hopefully all your ETL vows are going well :thanks: :tu:

+++ETL III UPDATE 3+++

Managed some painting. Was hoping to get the bases done but tried some Vallejo Glaze Medium in the dark wash and found it really slows drying time. So I ended up blocking in some colours on the sorcerer as the Forgefiend had a few areas I hit with the same wash as the bases.

Thinking on pastel blue/almost white coat, turquoise robes, and purple armour with a bright gold trim. I'm almost tempted to paint his skin almost like obsidian or a metal with a glowing rune and eyes. Gloves I've not decided on yet but possibly pale pink with black trim.

Many thanks. I've slacked off a few days. Partly due to painters block believe it or not. But I think I may be back on track again.
