Indeed, another project I managed to squeeze in when I had a spare few moments. As I mentioned earlier today, I picked up the Chaos Terminator Lord, and I have to say, it is a beautiful and spectacularly decadent mini to put together. I wanted him to be bombastic and looking ready to deal out some serious pain. I was having a hard time deciding what weapons to give him, as I loved all the combinations. In the end I decided on giving him lightning claws, as I figured the prospect of getting up close and personal with this guy would be truly terrifying. I added the cape and the spikey racks to add to the general air of malice that exudes from every weeping pore. Why not put him on the over-the-top chaos rubble base too, to add some extra height? so I did! it also allowed me to position him so it looks as though he’s about to jump over and start leathering the poop out of some poor, unfortunate sap. I was thinking that if it was any good, maybe even entering it into Golden Demon next year. Anyhoo, check out the pictures and see what you think!
Song of the moment: ‘Utopian Blaster’ By Cathedral 🙂
Wow! what a busy holiday break! I think I need a vacation….
Added to the already swelling ranks. Newest additions to the mini collection are:
Box of Black Templar Sword Bretheren
Chaplain in Terminator Armor
Black Templar upgrade kit
Box of Sternguard Veterans
Forgeworld Death Guard conversion set
Forgeworld Apostate Preachers of Nurgle
Forgeworld upgrade kits for Black Templar Terminators
Forgeworld Black Templar Venerable Dreadnaught
So, plenty to keep me busy into the new year and beyond! I also picked up a Chaos Terminator Lord, the plastic boxed figure, and have already assembled it, and GS’d it too! He is now a grim and bloated Chaos Lord of Nurgle. I’ll post pictures up soon. I need to get on board with all my other projects!
The work on the Nurgle Rhino is finally done. and ready for priming! In total there is about 5 hours work on this, and thats after the basic body was built. I finished the GS-ing last night, with the addition of the Nurgle icon eyeballs, and a couple more patches of goo. I added a couple of patches of sand as well here and there, which will be painted up like some sort of crusty disease when I paint it. The only thing I need to do now is glue a spike on the (ex)Death Korps chap…
thanks for checking out my page, the traffic over the last couple of weeks has been staggering, so I wanted to give a nod to the folks at the Privateer Press forums and also Bolter and Chainsword Forum as well. Check them out if you have’nt already. The linkies are over on the right, so clicky! ————->
My comrade in arms, Evan Smith, has sent me some pictures of his vile forces of Chaos, so I added them over at the ‘Friends and Foes’ page. I am still messing around with that, and may change the format yet, but in the meantime, check out the gallery of eeevil at https://whencannonsfade.wordpress.com/friends-and-foes/from-the-warp-evan-smiths-forces/ You can peruse the mini’s while enjoying the track ‘World Eater’ by Bolt Thrower. A fitting tune, considering Evan has thirty something Khorne Berzerkers in his force… urk!
In between all my other projects I have been working on my friends Rhino. He had the basic shell assembled and he gave me assorted bits to use on there. So, I think I am almost at the ready line to start painting. There are a few flash lines I need to trim, but other than that, I think it’s pretty much there. I still want to add a spike to the top of the Death Korps guys helmet, to keep in with that WW2 feel that the Plague Marines have. The colors will be the usual greens and browns, with exposed and rusted metal, and some glazes of yellow and brown for that truly virulent look.
I’m very excited as it would seem that my humble page is getting a lot of traffic, so thank you to all those who swing by here to check out the handiwork! Please feel free to leave c+c on anything here!
My good friend and long time wargame compadre Matt has sent over some pictures of his work, including his Golden Demon 2008 single figure category winner ‘The Masque’, so throw some smoke cannisters and charge on over to https://whencannonsfade.wordpress.com/in-battle-there-is-no-law-the-work-of-matt-crump/ and check it out. I am hoping this will be the start of a collaborative effort, and that Matty will grace us with some more pictures soon *hint hint* 🙂
While clearing out lots of unused stuff on my computer I found these pictures of a Forge World dready that I painted a few years back. Alas I no longer have him, he made his way to my buddy Matt back in the Motherland, and he now watches over it. I feel I should have at least finished the base on it, but oh well, I am sure Matty has finished the job!
I will probably end up getting another one at some point, as Nurgle has always held a soft (read: rotting) place in my heart. The deathguard will return once more, i’m sure.
This weekend I plan on picking up some green stuff so that I can fill the gaps on my Black Templar dready, and then I can prime him! I really want to get on board with constructing my Templars, but I need the upgrade kit, and $30 just isn’t available right now. Still, I can do some basic marines that haven’t received their full robes yet I guess.
Matt Crump will be putting a page up here soon, Matt was a Golden Demon finalist recently, in the Warhammer Single Mini category. He asked if he could put a picture of his entry up, so I offered him to do his own page here at WCF, as his work is stunning!
