Title: Sigur in Space! - So many Orks, Eldar, Infinity, all things Sci-Fi.
Post by: Battle Brush Sigur on June 17, 2017, 01:48:21 PM
Hej, I think it's time I start a collective threat for all my stuff on here as well. :)

In this I will post minis i'm currently working on as well as older stuff I did every once in a while. For now though I'll start with something brand new: the 40k 8th edition starter box Dark Imperium.

(http://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2017_06/boxfrontschrift.jpg.63e663be6010496695858d2a596fb6b9.jpg)

First time I buy a 40k starter box since 2nd edition. Last game of 40k I've had was in 2013, I completely skipped 7th edition. Of course I often get out my own 40k figures, mostly to play various skirmish games (Tomorrow's War, Flying Lead, 5150:Star Army, a modified version of the brilliant Chain of Command, and so on. I really want to try Stargrunts2 as well, because it's said to be great.).

Anyway, all the changes heralded for 8th edition got me curious and I thought it may be time to look into the 40k rules again. A series of articles in which I take a look at the box and the new rules is currently being published on Tale of Painters. Parts 1&2 are online already, there are two more to come dealing with the rules and my opinion on them. After that I'll proceed to the miniatures in this box.

...and in here I'll get right to them. Somehow I thought up the idea of painting the minis in the box even though I neither own a SM, nor a Chaos army. During my >20 years 40k career I did collect both at some point, but then firmly went with Orks, Sisters of Battle and Imperial Guard, all of them to this day even though they don't get out very often. Maybe this changes with 8th edition.

Now for some pictures:

...and some of the Primaris Marines built for painting:

I'll start with painting the Nurgle minis and then proceed to the Primaris Marines. The reason for this is that I have no idea how to paint them. Do you have any ideas for which chapter I should go for?

How comfortable are you with yellow?

I've always thought the Imperial Fists (http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Imperial_Fists) were a striking and underrepresented color scheme.

I'm going to do Space Wolves myself.

If you are going for yellow and under represented I've always favoured Lamenters. Yellow AND black and white checks? Lovely.

If I relent and pick up this box I'm swaying towards Crimson Fists.

I really like yellow Marines. I've painted quite a lot of them in the past indeed. And I've always been partial to Lamenters due to their crazy backstory and great colour scheme.
This actually is the second vote for Howling Gryphons I got already.  o_o

I spent about four hours today building figures from this set and I've only got the Nurgle leader, the big drone and 6 Poxwalkers done. How did you do ALL of those so fast? Maybe I'm far too slow at removing all the mouldlines...  :D
Title: Re: Sigur in Space! - Dark Imperium
Post by: Battle Brush Sigur on June 17, 2017, 08:33:53 PM
@noigrim: It takes another level of badassity to wear yellow armour with hearts on it. ;) But here's my actual theory: In 40k everything's adorned in skulls. All day, every day, everybody's used to it. To them a heart is the equivalent to what a skull is to us. So really remarkable and out there. :p

@Gibby: Oh yeah, I just leave'em on and photoshop them away in the end. I got a special filter for that. ;) Nah, I just got my set surprisingly early.


WIP of the Poxwalkers!

How did you managed to paint them already !?  :o

Great unit. Could you post some close ups ?
Title: Re: Sigur in Space! - Dark Imperium
Post by: Battle Brush Sigur on June 18, 2017, 01:53:36 PM
@driller: Thanks very much. :) I basically made the recipe up as I went along. The beauty of zombies or Nurgly things is that you can't do anything wrong really. Over the dark green primer coat I started on the skin with a mix of skin tone paint mixed with a little green and a little brown, applied that (not everywhere, more like a pre-shading thing), highlighted it roughly with  a lighter shade, highlighted everything by hand with almost white paint (all the boils, faces, most explosed bits), then I started applying various washes (brown, red-brown, green, purple, blue, whatever), most of them mixed with a little flesh colour. Did another coat of that, when I inked in some more shades where required, did the boils and that's is so far really. Now I need to do some additional details, mostly faces and those bloody tentacles and spikes those are going to be loads of work). So yeah, as I said: you can't do anything wrong really and don't be afraid to use colours. Stay away from black and dark brown washes as much as possible and instead go crazy with colours. Don't get them all mixed up either, because if you apply green followed by red you'll be stuck with something dark and uninteresting. Shake things up between the Poxwalkers, so each of them looks different.

@AWu: Thanks very much. I'll see that I can do closer-ups once they're done.


Update!

Now that the clothes and belts are mostly done. I can go on to doing the weapons and equipment.
Hope you like them and I'm still taking suggestions on what chapter to do for the Primaris Marines!

For the Space Marine chapter, I'd second Howling Griffons or another quartered scheme - really fantastic when done well.

Another Chapter that I like is The Scythes of the Emperor (http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Scythes_of_the_Emperor).

Good color scheme (I seem to be partial to yellow and black), plus if you care about the fluff at all they would be prime candidates for Primaris Marine reinforcements.

A question, if you don't mind: How do the Chaos Marines scale with the Primaris Marines?

Also, thanks very much for the plague victim color walkthrough. It will help a bunch when I paint mine.

@driller: no worries. :)

@Elbows: Alrighty, noted. :)

@Inso: Oh yes, I'm a big fan of colourful Space Marines. If one plays space pixies vs. helldemons or something there's no reason to restrain oneself. It's like doing Napoleonics armies in actual campaign state rather than full dress. It may make more sense, but it's no fun. Thanks for the link; very pretty indeed.

@eMills: That's the third vote for Scythes of the Emperor already. :D The CSM are freaking huge, but not quite as freaking huge as the Bigleg Marines. Not by much, maybe half a head or so they're shorter.

Getting there slowly...

@DonVoss: Cheers. I can't paint them all superpretty for the reason that I'm not getting paid for those and I don't really do a lot of 40k playing and don't really have a ton of use for them either in the forseeable future. But yeah, I'm trying to get as much as possible out of them before I have to move on!

@Nord: Thanks very much! I'll post some closer-up shots once I got more done.

@majorsmith: Many thanks!


Heyhey, here's a WIP shot of the Death Guard testmini:

Got bored with the testmini and it basically served its cause. Now I bring the rest of the guys up to that level and then finish them all together. After that I'll do the characters and the drone.

Still collecting votes for which SM chapter I should paint my Primaris Marines as!

Fantastic.  I'm still not sold on the models, but they look extremely good in the creepy white scheme...fantastic!  I may have to do my upcoming ones in a similar scheme :D (not those models, but plaguemarines nonetheless!)

I'm not a fan of the whole Nurgle thing... but you have done a superb job on them :) .

I am happily waiting for when you start the Primaris marines :) . If this is the standard, then I reckon I'll be suitably impressed (even if you don't choose Griffons ;) ).

They look splendid in white!
Title: Re: Sigur in Space! - Dark Imperium
Post by: Nord on June 23, 2017, 12:48:07 PM
Quite surprised by your palette on the Nurgle marines. In some ways I am tempted to say paint the Primaris Marines in black - either templars or raven guard, always liked those chapters. An ironic response is to go with green - maybe dark angels or even funnier Mantis Warriors. The yellow Lamentors are a good choice too. Whatever you do, don't go with Ultramarines (yawn).
Title: Re: Sigur in Space! - Dark Imperium
Post by: Battle Brush Sigur on June 23, 2017, 03:01:03 PM
@Elbows: Thanks very much!

@noigrim: Noted. :)

@Ultravanillasmurf: Thanks very much! They are bit more colourful now! :D

@Breazer: Cheers. I don't think they'll look all that different. :)

@Inso: Thanks, Sir! I'm still taking votes on the Marines. By now an impressive list of chapters have been compiled indeed, with some interesting ones leading in the votes. I guess I'll keep the whole thing running until I get started on the Primaris Marines. Which may well take a while considering the bloody details on these GW minis.... ;)

@AWu: Thanks muchly!

@Nord: Thanks for the comment! I've put you down with Black Templars, Raven Guard, Dark Angels, Mantis Warriors and Lamenters. I have to say that I prefer SM to wear bold, primary colours to be honest. Just looks best on the table. But of course there are some very nice other colour schemes out there. I painted a bunch of Raven Guard minis in the past and they look nice once they're on the table and maybe have some nice, contrasting basing. Not sure I ever did Black Templars actually. I painted a bunch of Dark Angels characters and converted/painted the Mantis Warriors' Dust Prophet Librarian chap. Always had a soft spot for the Lamenters, but never painted a single one. :D


New WIP shot of the Death Guard Marines:

I just looked at your Death Guard minis on my tablet. This allowed me to zoom in on the photos, and I have to say they are Exquisite! You should post closers shots of these.

As to which chapter you should do, I say anything but Imperial Fists. (That's what I plan to paint and I don't need the intimidation.) How about Blood Ravens? The red would contrast nicely with your white Death Guard.

Those Nurgle models are coming out beautifully.
I initially did not like the models, but subsequently changed my mind and bought Dark Imperium, and once I had the models in hand I realised I was right. What had put me off initially was more easily identfiable in the photos in the rule books: I prefer a rusty, decayed technology look than excessive gooey bits, and these guys have a lot of the latter, but it's the GW paint job which emphasised the fleshy stuff excessively, I think, by making it a bright shade of pink which looks healthier and more decay-free than any self-respecting nurgleyboy should. In more muted colours they're fine.
In your white (if it remains so!) incarnation they're splendid.

@Michka, AWu: I noticed a thing Lead-Adventures does is scaling down photos for some reason (probably so too large ones don't mess up the forum layout. Hence the extra small versions on here it seems. :D I put a direct link to the picture underneath the latest WIP shot below.

@driller: Thanks very much, noted. You also commented on Twitter, right?

@Vanlak: Thanks for the comment! Yeah, I guess GW's (understandable) directive for all their 'eavy metal painters is a squeaky clean and colourful style. The've done that for a bunch of years, which a.) doesn't go well with certain forces, such as Nurgly things and b.) (I think) makes their models look worse than they are in many cases. I can fully understand why they go for this look of course, but it's nice to see alternate takes. That's what mini painting is all about after all - it's completely different for each of us and the results will always be different.

@Andym: Thanks very much. :)



New WIP of the Death Guard. These days it's insanely hot 'round here (by our standards) and I gotta do other stuff than painting Death Guard I'm afraid, so progress is slow. However, most of the DG dudes are mostly done now (they still need work here and there for an extra nice look, but oh well). In the back you can see the three characters whom I currently focus on:

Anyway, next on my to-do list: The drone.

@tomrommel1: Cheers. :)

@Ultravanillasmurf: The box is pretty good actually. Have a look at my 4-part review of the box here:

Many people didn't like the bases and I wasn't sure about them myself. Either way, in the end I caved in and threw some puddles of green stuff onto the bases, along with some red-ish tufts I'd originally planned to use as well. I'm still not sure about this solution, but I guess it works better than the pure rocks/sand overall.

Thanks for all the comments! :)

@Grumbledook: :D Yeah, as I wrote before - it's quite a childish thing to go out and just buy this big new shiny box, but I was curious about the new rules. Which is he flimsiest excuse ever, but oh well. :D

@Storm Wolf: :D I know the feeling. Last 40k starter set I bought was 2nd edition as well!

@fluffy05: Thanks for commenting! :)

@tomrommel1: Thank you very much, Sir!


Hej, here I am again with Sci-Fi(-ish) things, and Space Orks at that!

When it comes to 40k I own 3 armies (and probably always will): Sisters of Battle (because they're cool), Imperial Guard (of various kinds, because it was my first army) and Orks. Those are one of my pet projects. As a young'un I owned 2nd edition codex Orks and been gawking at the photos a lot. It was all metal though (except for the monopose ones from the 2nd edition starter set), thus unaffordable for young me (well, at least next to Imperial Guard, which of course also were all metal, except for Stormtroopers). In 2006 I started doing this army of my dreams by collecting second hand Orks and Gretchins off ebay and collectors. Back then this was possible (I also collected a sizeable force of Squats). These days  ebay is just insane when it comes to prices for ANTHING GW that's OOP.

Anyway, with the help of this and the excellent 1992 multipart plastic Orks I got together quite an army over the years. All models from between 1987 and 1995 because them's the good old days of proper Orky Orks. Great models, great background, great artwork (love Paul Bonner's Orks drawings!), great books.

(http://skirmishwargaming.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/space-ork-raidersschrift11.jpg)

I really should take some more photos of my old orks again. Lost most of the pics in a hard drive crash and now with the photobucket disaster (btw: screw you, Photobucket!).

Most of my Boyz (and Nobz. And Skarboyz. And Buggies. And some guns. And the Dreadnought.)  are Goffs, Looterz of course Deathskulls, Kommandos are Blood Axes, Meganobz (and some boyz) are Bad Moons and so on. Vehicles are a bit of a problem. I do own a Battlewagon, but nowadays that model probably rather qualifies as a Trukk.


AAaaaaaaanyway, of course I also own a rather large bunch of 1998 style Orks. Never used them all that much though to be honest. Between 2011 and 2013 I painted a rather large army though for a gentleman in France. Despite my preference of old-school Orks, I also do like the new-style ones a ton. To cut things a bit shorter - I'm working on an Orks army for a gentleman!

Here are the 10 test minis; a bunch of Goff boyz:

Title: Re: Sigur in Space! - Dark Imperium
Post by: Battle Brush Sigur on November 13, 2017, 03:17:56 PM
@Elk101: Thanks very much! :) I'm a fancypants man, so I went with some pre-shading on those. Black, white, thin mid-green (kinda like goblin green actually, but slightly muted) over all of it, highlights with pale yellow, wash with brown and green (varies between orks, so I get some slight variation in the skin tones), final highlights. High contrast fun times. Because if we're having green ork skin with bright red right next to it this is not the time and place for subtlety in colours. Also: It's bloody space orks! :P

@tomrommel1: Cheers! :)

So yeah, things are a bit chaotic here in the workshop. Had a wargames show this saturday (report to follow!), for which I had to finish some Guild Ball stuff and a not-quite-platoon of 28mm British Paras, and we're currently moving house and today I'm actually moving my paint stations to the new place. Last night I finished doing the rust on the metallics on the Orks, next up will be all the checkers. So if I manage to keep a relative amount of sanity over this task I guess the next photos you'll see will be shot at the new place already. But before that it'll take a while getting stuff rom point A to point B. I started with the cool stuff (the lead/plastic/resin mountain, minis in general, terrain, boardgames, game boxes, old school GW books), so that's at the new place already (still in boxes though). Not sure what I'll do with the post-1998 GW books and such. I'm afraid I'll have to sell some stuff; possibly beastmen and my Valhallans army. Oh, and a ton of old Shadowrun and The Dark Eye books. I'd love to keep them, but I just can't.

Anyway, that's the rather off-topic update. :D

Trying to slip back into my regular work schedule, and here's an Orky update on the Goffs:

(http://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2017_11/wip3.jpg.cf75e86096eb53157a1967005d4d4554.jpg)

Haven't moved the proper photo setup here yet, hence the weird half-and-half background. :p Anyway, silvery metallics are done, checkerboard pattern bits are done, clothes are done and most of the damaged paintjob effect. Next I'll do the copper-colored metallics (mostly CCW handles and some details) plus weathering, after that I guess I'll have to tackle teeth and horns and after that it's the rest of the details for me!

Well, I'm starting to settle into the new surroundings, got the essentials set up and decided to test a few new photo setups. Here's the finished Orks, a total of 61 Boyz and 2 Nobz:

All of them (well, mostly):

Hey, chaps!

Look what hit my doorstep last week:

(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2018_02/WP_20180212_16_53_22_Pro.jpg.c8c80e78a72e4f9b6711e2093a4360c3.jpg)

I'm not a GW fanboy. Unless they tickle that late-80s-early-1990s nerve in me. Then I have online buddys of old (thanks a ton, Steven!) pester the good people at Warhamme World (thanks to the people of WHW. Great service!) into sending me 2 copies of Realm of Chaos - Slaves to Darkness, that bloody huge box of SM HQ tanks, a Slaves to Darkness shirt and a Slaves to Darkness cup. Okay, one of the books and the SM tanks are for a friend, the rest's for myself. Now I own two shirts with stuff on them: An Oldhammer shirt and now that Slaves to Darkness shirt. Never been a 'band shirt' guy, or stuff like that.

Over the past days I read Slaves to Darkness again. Never thought I'd hold that book in my hands; pretty amazing. The reproduction is, as far as I can see, flawless. Great stuff. And I don't think it's just a Nostalgia thing. This book (along with The Lost and the Damned) is just interesting. It gets the creative juices going. The artwork, the little vignettes, the general fluff, the humour.... it's just not a catalogue to sell figures with illustrations which show figures as they are available, it's stories and fluff and whatnot. Of course there are rules in there as well. For 40k (Rogue Trader), WHFB and the Warhammer Roleplaying Game. Anyway, highly recommended to anybody who's interested in Chaos or fantasy in general.



And here's a WIP shot of the first 4 Harlequins out of a warband of 6 I'm currently doing:

@hubbabubba: Thanks, Sir-with-good-name. Yeah, they re-issued Slaves to Darkness just like they did with the RT rulebook. Passed on that (because I got a hardcopy of the rules from back then), but when it comes to Realm of Chaos... if you're an old person like I am it's a must-have. The reproduction is, as far as I can tell, flawless. They retouched the whole thing a little bit with digital trickery (mostly the photos of miniatures in the middle, with way ramped-up colours), but it's all done very subtly and well. Highly recommended; i'll definately get The Lost and the Damned as well, which in my mind is the even better book.

@Andym: Cheers. :) Comments like this help me keep on painting these figures. Well, that and the rather tight deadline. :D




I'm currently working on the green Harlequin:

Ah Harlequins.. those horrible figures that only stand a chance of looking decent when painted very well - and these look fantastic for sure!

I particularly like the fiery one on the right, with red-going-into-orange and yellow.. more complementary rather than contrasting colours I guess, and more transitions because of it. Although the more I look at them, the more I like them all!

Thanks for letting us know about the Realms of Chaos reprint. That just made my day.
And I love the classic Orks. So bright and cheerful. Makes me want to paint Orks, which I haven't wanted to do in years.

But those Harlequins...

@Elbows: Oh yes, I love 2nd edition Orks. The ones above are commission work (ironically for someone who ALSO loves the 1st/2nd edition Orks and wants to have more time painting those, so he outsourced the painting of the newer Orks to me. :D ); I collected my 1st/2nd edition Orks army between 2006 and 2009. Unfortunately I lost all the photos of them and have to reshoot them again at some point in time.

@Coenus Scaldingus: Oh, I really, really dig the Plastics. Of course they got less character than the original ones, but that goes for everything nowadays, eh? ;) Anyway, I really like the new plastics. They look proper nice. Thanks a ton for the compliments though. :)

@Michka: Glad to be of help. ;) Only downside is that they're Warhammer World Exclusive, but if you have a friend who goes there, I hear they can order and pay them for you and WHW will ship them to you directly. Thanks for the comments on the painting too!

@Grimmar: Cheers, much appreciated!



Well, thanks for all the positive comments, guys! I'm having a hard time pretending that these Harlequins aren't a bit straining by now in terms of how long I've been working on these bloody 6 figures already, but I'm getting there. The comments certainly help.

The last Harlequin has been added now, as well as bases. So we got a blue one now as well. Hope you like them!

Now for the last bits of detailwork which as we all know is the most excruciating part. :D I already took a peek at the next batch of figures and I'm happy to report that I'll stick to 40k for now. It's going to be an exciting melange of power armour, heavy armour and super heavy armour. ;)

@hubbabubba: Thank you, Sir!


No huge news on the Harlequins I'm afraid. Currently I'm just ironing out detailstuff, so there isn't much exciting new stuff to see. So I decided to take a picture of what I currently got on my table instead, all of it at varying stages of completion:

Right, thanks for the comments! Currently painting trousers, the odd shoe I haven't painted yet, and some more details. The main thing that's left to do is the dudes in the gimp masks and over-alls and the dudes with the big hammers and coats. I plan to finish those guys tonight, and then base the whole force. This allows me to sit back, do some French Napoleonic mounted Gendarmes and hopefully some Super Dungeon Explore figures before the rest of the Nurgle force pops up.

@Andym: Thanks! And there's yet more to come! Very much looking forward to that next batch, because I think there might be some heavier support in there. :) I'm left in the dark about this for now, but I hear the models (which I get built and converted already) have been in the works for a while now, so it shouldn't take too long until I know more details.


Until then I'll spend some time with these Goffs here:

(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2018_05/wip1.jpg.6a2bffecb31840effd6d9ac04463d19d.jpg)

These are the second batch for the Orks army for which I did ~60 slugga Boyz in late 2017.

1 Warboss
1 Nob with Waagh Banner
1 Weirdboy
1 Painboy
6 Nobz
60 Shootaboyz
6 Boyz with Big Shootaz


Hooray!

Okay, I have to admit that for the latest few steps I broke and divided the horde up in "dem boys" and Nobz/characters. Up until then I painted them all in one go. There's a slight light at the end of the tunnel on the boys (ammo belts, details like teeth dangling from belts and such and several ribbons left to do, plus final check-up to see what I forgot). Lots to do on the nobz and characters, and then the eyes on all of the models...

Well, not really. The Painboy's only ca.80% finished, the Warboss 90%, the Weirdboy is still pretty much unpainted (just based and the skin's done). So those will be the things I'll work on the next days.

Hope you like dem boyz! :)

Hope you like him! Just like every single other mini in the army he's a little bit converted. If you look closely (it#s a bit hard in the photos, but believe me, I have looked closely at every single one of those chaps :P ) there's not two single minis alike in this army. It's really impressive. I didn't build them, I just painted them.

It's a warhammer/Age of Sigmar Shaman I think. With a converted staff. It's very nice!

@Andym: Thanks very much! Yeah, it's a new Orc shaman with the staff converted (as Sir_Theo pointed out already).

@hubbabubba: Thank you! That's always one of the most flattering kinds of compliments. The funny thing is is that not only me not really digging the Ork redo that happened in 1998 made me collect the Orks army of younger me a bunch of years ago (all 1st and 2nd edition Orks), but also the gentleman I paint these Orks I just posted for is collecting one of these old-school only Orks as well. Which is why he lacks the time and inclination to pain these new-style Orks himself. :D So yeah, there are several of us who feel the same way you do.

Right, let's move on to Infinity for once!

WIP PanO team:

I'm currently working on these chaps here, followed by a Yu Jing team and then some Haqqislam minis. Funnily enough, I never painted Yu Jing before. Should be fun.

Here's the Yu Jing team (also still kinda WIP):

Hope you like them so far! First time I'm painting Yu Jing, believe it or not.

Here's a WIp shot of the Haqqislam figures:

Last WIP of the Haqqislam minis. Added the big Al Fasid and some odd lighting. :P

These Infinity models look absolutely fantastic. I know how tiny and detailed they are to paint, too.

They're all great but I love the high-contrast blue on the PanO squad.

@Randell: :D Thanks very much! I guess Infinity-heads are over in more Infinity-centric forums. I guess it would also get more attention if I'd made a separate thread for these Infinity minis, but I don't want to clutter LAF with threads to be honest. Anyway, all the more thanks to you and the others who dropped by and took the time to comment! :) Funny thing on the side: Few days ago I posted a kinda ruddy snapshot of some Malifaux figures (WIP) I'm working on over on Twitter and the photo got a TON of likes and a bunch of retweets. Up there with the all made-up infinity shots with terrain and all. Maybe I'm underestimating the popularity of Infinity vs. Malifaux. It's very interesting to have one's perceptions of things put to the test.

@tomogui: Thanks, Sir! Yus, always fun painting Infinity minis. These here I got pre-assembled and they had some super glue stuck here and there, which I had to take care off. Didn't make things easier. :D Cheers, the cool thing about going high-contrast is that you don't really need any contrasting colours in there as you got the dark/light contrast on there, which leads to this very different aesthetic, which I really enjoy, especially with dark blue shiny stuff. Love it.

@OSHIROmodels: Thanks very much once more! I got the models last week, by the way. Lovely, lovely, lovely. No idea when I get the time to do anything with them, but at least I got them now, just in case. ;)


Right, Infinity minis are done now. :)

@Andym: That's just photoshopped in. Not that I know much about photography, but I think it makes the whole picture look extremely askew in terms of composition. :D

@Andym: Thanks very much. That's might kind of you.

@Ultravanillasmurf: Once more - thanks very much!

@Randell: Oh, don't worry. :D With these Infinity minis it's kinda hard to tell if that happened or not and it's often only noticeable when you paint those specific bits. Either way, I think they turned out well and I hope that you like them. :)

So let's see what's next on the list. More Nurgle stuff, I suppose. Well, as soon as the replacement part for the Malifaux figures (http://"http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=103777.15") (feel free to visit the thread about those chaps here: http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=103777.15 (http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=103777.15) ) arrives. Then I can finish those, and THEN I can go on (or back) to Nurgly Death Guardy things.

The past two months I've also been working on a slightly out of the ordinary side project resulting in these:

These aren't commission jobs, but a bday present for my brother. The "Blue Bomber" (ehem) is a third party controller I'd only gotten to test the techniques I wanted to apply to the proper present one. Took me ages, it was a voyage with many ups and downs. Once I finally called it done I got out the original Nintendo GC controller to make it the proper Ninja Gaiden themed "production model". :p My brother's hugely into Smash Brothers and pines for Ryu Hayabusa to be added to the roster at some point. (btw: If you hold any power over the deeds of Nintendo, please make that a thing. That would be swell. :D ). Hence the theme. Learned a lot about GC controllers over the past 8 weeks, I have to say.

Gave the controllers to him on Thursday (the blue one more for show rather than for play), he was highly pleased.

But that's all past now and yesterday I started doing proper (but unglamorous things) again: administrative stuff, preparing new models for painting, priming stuff, varnishing the Infinity minis, etc. In the mean time I left scatter terrain I've been painting on the side on the table over night. It's generally not a good idea to leave fresh fruit and vegetable lying out over night in July. When I turned on the desk light today I found the table crawling with these:

A huge swarm of chaos cultists, nibbling at the half-painted plums and cheese. I'll try to shoo them off now by basing and priming them. Wish me luck.

Heyhey, here we got shots of the test minis for the Chaos cultists:

The only orders I had for these was "not necessarily the same colour scheme as on the Nurgle dudes, but make the basing the same". So I basically was free to act as I wanted. Which threw me a little to be honest. In the end I went off of the 3rd edition chaos cultists studio paintjob and went on from there. Hope you like them!

Since the first 27-ish figures are done I'm working on the rest now:
(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2018_07/wip5.jpg.d526545ec95be4853ec03f2ebc7b4b43.jpg)


The temperatures aren't making this any easier. :D Apart from that I have to start preparing for Vienna Miniatures Convention in early August:
(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2018_07/40544c51ebd1b468b993b9f9fa53cc95-rimg-w508-h720-gmir.jpg.1b7b094b308a1ce9bcbd8ccc28061118.jpg)


Highly recommending this convention. It's going to be a big deal (for what conventions look like around here at least). Throughout the two days you'll be able to watch "international mini painting celebs" do their thing and of course I'll be present as well with my workshop table(s). As always I'm happy to chat and paint with people at the event, show off some minis and maybe help out with some hints if you have any questions. I'll have brushes, paints and test minis, but you're more than welcome to bring along figures of your own.

Looking forward to seeing you there! ;)

Hi, peeps!

Granted, I haven't painted a whole lot of sci-fi stuff lately, but I was surprised to see that I skipped a few updates I should have posted on here!

So first, here's a Highlander for Infinity:
(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2018_11/5.jpg.235e32b9ce94b74d2da55d8376ea5312.jpg)


Then somehow Kill Team became a thing and I felt the need to paint some scatter terrain for modern/sci-fi urban things:
(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2018_12/scatter1size.jpg.754a956733015a2974a9010309850242.jpg)

Mostly bits from a set sold by Warlord Games, plus the portable loos are from TTCombat. Bought those a few years ago at a show, because I knew they'd come in handy at some point. All of these bits can be seen in that Kill Team battle report I wrote a while ago.


Then I did another Eisenhorn:
(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2019_01/eisneuwip1.jpg.b72eb9e746de2330500a6ef9f6403ee3.jpg)

Not a great shot, but at this point I assume we all know what this chap looks like. :D This time I was asked to make him a little different with grey-ish blue shoulder armour. I offset the lack of colour caused by this by using more gold on the metallics.


...and this brings us up to speed pretty much. I'm currently working on a batch of Infinity figures. KTS, a Druze Shock Team, two corporate security people, a bunch of Haqqislam figures and of course the Fat Yuan Yuans:

(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2019_01/yuanwip1.jpg.d1feba43f8dedf0f670a45df6fa10bcf.jpg)

These in the photo are still a bit WIP, but I'm getting there. Unique, fun figures with a pretty charming background and incredible presentation. Gimmicky as hell, but it's something i hadn't seen done before.

(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2019_01/yuanbox.jpg.8d06871c53cfa713de4540431cfda9ac.jpg)

They come in a faux asia noodle box, along with a little menu printed on authentically thin and crappy paper with fat stains on it and three pins. Oh, and here's a fun fact: The two bodies of the figures are the same sculpt. It's just in the arms and mounting on the bases that makes the different poses.

So yeah, I got the green light on the Haqqislam colour scheme last weekend, so I'm currently working on getting all the Haqqis done. Here's a WIP shot:
(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2019_03/wip3shoop.jpg.ab2b79070ee3110d32937d093ac8257c.jpg)

Not pictured: 77 Goff Orks (slugga boyz, Kommandoz, Tank Bustaz, bomb squigs and a Runtherd) who are standing on my desk. I'd started working on them, then I got a message asking me to rip'em off their 25mm bases and put them on 32mm ones. Yikes. Well, that's done now as well. So I'll see that I get these Infinity figures done, then it's the Ork Boyz, then back to another batch of Infinity figures (about 10 figures I think), and if I'm a good boy I'll have that all done by the time the new Kickstarter figures from Dead Earth Games arrive which then have to be painted asap so they can use those in their promo for the next KS wave for Pirates of the Dread Seas. I've seen the masters already and they look mighty fine. So that's something to look forward to.

...and right in this moment I spotted a Haqqislam lady who had hidden between the horde of Orks to skip the last five painting steps on their comrades. That's what I get for putting too much stuff on the desk. Sigh. Please excuse me. :P



edit: Oh, and of course I've got the Austrian Salute show report in the works. Still have to put together the photos of my own stall there, then it's going straight online.

Exactly the same here. If the world was run according to me figures would be send out in little plastic baggies or classic blister packs AT BEST, but I appreciate people going all-out (or in) on the gimmcikiness if they feel like they must.

Stunning Brushwork  :-*

Would you mind sharing how you did the barrels/guns on the Haq models?

I've just discovered the Vallejo Opaque paints and am loving them.

I've been playing around with using the Vallejo 72.155 Heavy Charcoal and looking at using it for rubber tyres & or weapons (Gun barrels etc).

It seems to be a warmer (?) colour and maybe I need to look at something else.

Thanks for sharing your pics  :D

@fluffy05: Thanks very much. :) It's just black (craft store), white (Schmincke acrylic) and a blue-ish light mid-grey (Vallejo Intermediate Blue) and mixes thereof. For funsies I also used Reaper's Snowdrift white for not-quite-final highlights, because it's a blue-ish grey/white I got for free earlier this year and it fits the whole pseudo-NMM on the guns. I do own two of Vallejo Game Colors' Extra Opague paints. Not many, because I generally don't do much with the Game Color range, but I got two, and they're really nice paints.

Since I got a ton to do I rushed straight on to painting Space Orks. Finished the 35 Slugga Boyz (pictures of those to follow, possibly not before I got the Kommandoz and Tank Bustaz done, let's see), now I slipped in another batch of Infinity figures, incidently Haqqislam again, but with a slightly different look. Here's a WIP of the figures:

Could have been?  I'm sure I've hit you up with painting questions before.

Have not painted regularly for a long time and am just starting to learn how to paint all over again - lol

Okay, let's not lose any time, there's too much to do. On to Space Orks! Those are still a bit WIP. Need some weathering, bases done and final check-up:

Slugga Boyz:
(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2019_04/boyzwuip1.jpg.214914667e4e265bc185a8180ebbee0b.jpg)

Kommandoz:
(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2019_04/kommwip1.jpg.42e7fc06315d54468c670df038ece772.jpg)


...and here's an earlier WIP of a mob of Tank Huntaz:
(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2019_04/thwip1.jpg.58a1edd087e3b2097c1a13392b4ff891.jpg)


As with previous units I do for this project (it's a pretty darned big Orks army I've been working on in batches since late 2017) I can't take credit for the remarkable builds. A LOT of thought goes into these to make each of the Boyz unique. None of the guys looks like another via clever conversions, use of resin parts, a bit of sculpting, and a mix of the above. Especially the Tank Huntaz again feature a ton of subtle conversions to keep a varied look about them. Then I slap on variants of the colour scheme onto every one of them and we end up with a huge force of individuals. As Orks should be, even if they're Goffs!

Well, happy weekend! What are we all up to? Had a smashing time last night playing Zelda2 (with someone who'd never played it before. Very entertaining.). Tonight I'm going to play Blackstone Fortress, which I'm sure will be fun as well. Virago took the time and painted the whole set, so it would be rude not to. ;)

In terms of painting I'm still slaving away at the Ork tank hunterz. Here's another WIP shot:

(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2019_04/thwip2schrit.jpg.e5ae6d404cbed82fd6fbe2bb79f75ad0.jpg)
full size image: https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2019_04/thwip2schrit.jpg.e5ae6d404cbed82fd6fbe2bb79f75ad0.jpg (https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2019_04/thwip2schrit.jpg.e5ae6d404cbed82fd6fbe2bb79f75ad0.jpg)

I've said it before - I'm just the painter in this case, and it's remarkable how much work the guy who built these puts into it. Each and every single Ork is different by use of subtle conversions. Also means that each of the buggers has details and details hidden away on their person, especially on these bloody backpacks. :D Takes ages. But they're cool figures. I just hope that I haven't overdone it with the reds, but I'll leave that to boss to decide.

Hope you like the boyz so far and do have a nice weekend!

@Grumbledook: Thanks very much. :) I really like them too. I had those with me at Vienna Fantasy Gaming Convention (the gentleman I painted these for let me keep them a bit longer). When I got them out to put them in the showcase I caught myself thinking "wow, those look really cool".  lol

Well, I'm back to doing one of those chaps...

I am always impressed to see how much quality you are able to achieve on such a vast number of models. You should make a video tutorial and get Patron. You turn out so much remarkable stuff and you have an unique style. I think  a lot of people would be interested in your way of doing things hobby wise. A YouTube channel would also help to promote your commission business. Okay enough of unasked business advise  ::)

Great to see an update  :)

@DintheDin: Yeah, I thought that if Red-armoured, green-skinned Orks are what's asked for there's really no use in taking a subtle approach. Also: 40k. Why bother with subtlety. :D

@batu: Thanks very much for the compliment and suggestions. Read your comment before I went to bed last night, had a bit of a think, could write pragraphs and paragraphs about the topic, probably shouldn't. :D So I'll leave it at that: Maybe I will (have to) do all that in the future. I greatly enjoy doing painting workshops at wargames shows or dedicated group or solo painting workshops with people of all ages and skill levels. I used to do (painfully intricate) painting tutorials in the past for websites, magazines, and so on. Still do (to order). Which pretty much is my dream situation. Rest assured though that if or when I get on the whole video thing I will let all of you know. Endlessly, loudly. In gaudy colours. Possibly along with giveaways. ;) Feel free to follow me on Twitter (which is nice, and which I use a fair bit), Facebook (which is a wretched place) or instagram though.

@Nord: A-Yup. :D

Full disclosure - I started putting the Titan together a while ago actually, so here's another update to help bring this thread up to speed:

(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2019_07/wip2.jpg.71cde933fab1513e2e44206fe29aa3c8.jpg)

I'll see that I get as much done as possible on this guy over the weekend, because there's a LOT of stuff to do and of course I got a very short-term plea for help by someone I paint a lot of stuff for. He needs a ~1metre long U-Boot painted pretty much asap. So that'll mess up my schedule big time. :D Picking it up Monday morning. What are you all doing this weekend?

Hah - "he needs a ~1metre long U-Boot painted pretty much asap". Don't we all?

This weekend I prepped a fair few figures (including black spray paint, brown, lighter brown dry brush) and painted 6(!) of those straight away - some 15mm stags and lions from Eureka. Smallest batch I have done for a long time. No where near to what you pump out.

Right, let's jump ahead in time to almost-today.

Mr.Stripey can't feel his legs at the moment, but at least his interior is starting to take shape..

Earlier today I took a size comparison photo along with other 28mm-sized friends (Imperial Fist Marine, Alexander I., Viking Lady, Siberia Regiment Grenadiers):

So yeah, so far today I mostly finished off the pilots and cockpit. I guess I'm at the "last 20% which take 80% of the time" stage of the project now.

That's that. :) Hope you like him. I took great care that things (especially the interior) got the same colours as his Legio Crucius pal I painted a few years ago, especially wires, tubes, lenses/screens, etc. Which made it take a whole lot longer than just painting the things how I like. :D

(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2019_08/test4.jpg.0b842c7a74bb556f16a893a462281f1b.jpg)

I sent them off to get the colour scheme thumbed-up by the gentleman I paint these for. Fingers crossed.

Right, I hope you like the minis!


As for my own stuff - little news there. I got to play Rangers of Shadow Deep, of which I hope to do a review and game report soon. Until then - happy weekend!

Impressive work as always Sigur.  However, I am interested in how the Meter Long U-boat turned out.

@hubbabubba: Cheers!

Well, the colour scheme/general look got the customer's thumbs-up right away. Now I guess I better get to work on the rest of the Harlequins...

Do have a nice weekend, people. Mine, I predict, will mostly by full of diamond shapes. :P Then: pear-shaped after tonight' birthdayday get-together, then diamon-shaped again. :D

your painting in all areas / periods / genres is just wonderful - always an utter delight upon which to feast the eyes.

40k models are stunning sculpting-wise of course - I don't like the vibe / 'message' of the ip - feeling it plays to all that's most worrying about GW tbh - or too many people take it that way anyway  - but when you see paintjobs like yours it's hard to feel too curmudgeonly about it.

the interiors of that titan thingy are amazing.

@DintheDin: Space is the place!

@Bloggard: Thanks very much! I'm rather sure I get what you're saying. I think it's just not to be taken seriously and essentially "this is where totalitarism and an inability to talk to the other side will get you". The minis are well done though. Eldar especially of course (because they didn't mess with the bloody designs for the past 30 years! ;) ). Yus, titan interiors are always the most interesting parts. Outsides may make an impression at first sight, but it really is just technical stuff (and usually very basic).

@Treebeard: 3,587,013. And most of us are where you least expect us! Mwahahahaha! Thanks very much for the kind words. I kinda have to, because people will scream at me if I don't finish their stuff in time. Even more so than they do already! :O


Right, here's another WIP shot of some Harlequin troopers, including a Solitaire:

(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2019_09/wip2.jpg.564fcc55d75c77b1cb701025e9d16c00.jpg)

@Bloggard: thanks very much. :) Always happy to get comments.


Time flies when you're having fun, they say! Either way, these tres delinquentes are just a shuriken's thickness away from being finished.

Very interesting project indeed, because these chaps are meant to fit in with an already existing Ultramarines army (the one my good friend Garfy sold a while ago: https://taleofpainters.blogspot.com/2016/10/for-sale-2000pt-ultramarine-army.html?m=1#more (https://taleofpainters.blogspot.com/2016/10/for-sale-2000pt-ultramarine-army.html?m=1#more). This means that I had not only to adapt my approach and style and paint things a bit differently than I might have if I've had free rein. The camo cloaks on the Eliminators were to fit the ones the Scouts in the existing army, which was a bit of a challenge to keep the look of the camo pattern even though it's not how I'd done it at all, so I had to improvise and adapt a little.

But yeah, fun times. Hope you like the army, and I hope that I get to paint Space Marines again soon!

Hooray. :) Thanks very much. We see a lot of Ultramarines of course (well, at least I do in the dark, dark corners of the interweb I inhabit), and they're basically all painted the same way, but in the end that looks really nice, and it's basically what the people want. And who can blame them.

Hello, friends.

I'm currently painting Space Orks again. 60 Stormboyz, 30 Looterz, 60 Gretchins, and a bunch of characters (among them three different Shokk Attack guns! :O ). Oh my, is everything huge. And cluttered in what is often called detail. :D

After the first three stages or so I had to split the Stormboyz up into two batches of 30 boyz and 2 Nobz each to make it somewhat manageable. Here's a WIP shot of the first batch as it is now:

Still loads to do, but we're slowly getting there. Hope to get them finished properly and maybe get a bit of a head start on the next 30 before I have to put the Orks aside for more urgently deadlined projects! Hope you like them so far.

@DintheDin: Thanks very much. And that was just the first half of the Stormboyz. :D


Right, I think I'm slowly getting rid of that annoying cold. AND last week I got 53 "Need them done until next week. It's not a hard deadline, but it would be nice" emergency 18mm-Prussians done in quite a painting marathon. So now I'm back to painting Stormboyz:

Hope you like them so far! Saving proper angles for when them boyz are actually done.;)

And now I'll go to bed and read the Chain of Command rules again. I'll demo that gem of a game on Sunday to a band of Bolt Action players.

Well, at least they're on the same level now as the other 33. Still lacking basing and final neatening up/dirtying up. :P I have to admit that the past few days those details kinda got me aggrevated. :D

@von Lucky: Thanks very much! :) I'm always a bit worried with these since there's so much "battle damage" and rust and whatnot around that I worry that people might think those are done in any way simple or fast. :D

@Ultravanillasmurf: Thank you.


Well, I had to put the guys aside for now in favour of some Prussians which need to be painted really fast. Then I'll see that I get back to the Looterz.

Heyhey, I'm back to doing Sci-Fi / Space Fantasy things.

Earlier this month I was very busy struggling to get figures finished in time for the spring shows and getting everything prepared and all of that. Then, 2 days before the first event, of course everything was called off. :D

Here's some Infinity figures I did:
(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2020_03/wip3.jpg.90ece831e72d7a5b0806e16d5c7e06a2.jpg)

Always fun working with those. Dead sexy things and, contrary to what many say, easy to put together.


Then I went on do painting some more Goff Orks! 30 Looterz.

(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2020_03/wip6.jpg.fae60dd8c9d8bfda8860eee6218e87c5.jpg)

Very enjoyable to paint. Larger surfaces done, now on to the details! Hope you like them so far. :)

Admiring your job! Must come back many times to all pictures to look at the so tiny, crispy details! Cheers!

@DintheDin: Thanks very much. :) It's impossible to do all the details justice without taking photos of each individual dude. :D I only paint those, but I don't get tired of praising how well converted all of these Boyz are. There are no identical models in there, no identical guns (which of course is important for looterz especially).



Right, the Looterz are pretty much done, except for the bases getting properly finished. First, a picture of all of them together, and then I roughly split the mob in half (by applying an even rougher karate chop to it) for some more closer-up photos:

Post by: Battle Brush Sigur on March 24, 2020, 05:28:20 PM
@Bearwoodman: Thanks very much. :) I really enjoy painting those guys. Can't wait for everything to be done and on the table for an army shot! But before that I'll have to finish the characters below and 60 Gretchins!


Heyhey, here's the first WIP shot of the characters:

 (https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2020_03/charswip1.jpg.acd32272c6edcec3814f7ddf8fae4536.jpg)

As you can see there's lots of them and they're pretty much all bloody huge.


So what's everybody up to? I have to admit that there's no wargaming done at the moment. Not even solo. Loads of video gaming, but nothing proper. How about you?

Post by: Battle Brush Sigur on March 27, 2020, 02:51:23 PM
@DintheDin: :D Thanks. This must be one of the best compliments I ever got.



Right, here's the first few characters in a "as good as done" state:

(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2020_03/charswip2schrift.jpg.509354a496ede427b38c26e65d239d79.jpg)

Now I'll move on to the three Big Meks with Shokk Attack Guns and a Runtherd, then I'll go over all the characters once more and then do the bases. That's the plan.

How's everybody doing?
Title: Re: Sigur in Space! - Infinity, Harlequins, Orks, all things Sci-Fi.

These guys look cool and some nice conversions.
Title: Re: Sigur in Space! - Infinity, Harlequins, Orks, all things Sci-Fi.
Post by: Battle Brush Sigur on March 28, 2020, 11:12:08 PM
@Lost Egg: Thanks very much! Oh yes, I marvel at these small and pretty cool conversions myself. I only get to paint the minis, so I get them sent built and cleaned.



Right, the Big Meks with Shokk Attack Guns are up to snuff now was well.

(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2020_03/mekswip1schruift.jpg.2425b981fcdfcb4cc43b3c770392d340.jpg)

As with the Nobz, not quite there yet, but mostly they are. The next big step is getting the 60 Gretchins and their Runtherder painted. The gentleman I paint these for is especially fond of Gretchins, so he asked me to make them look extra nice. Hope I'm up to the job!

Title: Re: Sigur in Space! - Infinity, Harlequins, Orks, all things Sci-Fi.
Post by: Battle Brush Sigur on March 30, 2020, 10:41:59 AM
Nice...60 Gretchin...rather you than me :D

:D :D Yeah, I decided to switch things around a bit. As seen in this thread, I've been working on this army for a few years now. During this time GW had the bright idea to introduce the 32mm round base for all the things. So I got about 150 Orks I'd done back, all of them now on blank 32mm bases, and with the order to base them all again. :D So things are according to GW's bidding. Alrighty. Last night I based the first 60 slugga boyz, today I'll do 70 shoota boyz. And then I'll see what else is there to rebase. Bunch of Characters. That much I know.

So yeah, I decided to get all of that out of the way first as well and THEN do the Gretchins. I'm just really happy that in times like these I won't run out of work for the months to come. Not until about August, I suppose. Maybe I can just hunker down and sit it all out without running out of stuff to do.

In a press conference earlier today we were informed that from Wednesday masks will be compulsory when shopping. People buying stuff like crazy stopped, the army and civil servicemen could stop giving a hand to supermarket chains. How are all of you doing?

Wow...rebasing all those minis sounds...fun? Still, it'd be satisfying once done I expect.
Title: Re: Sigur in Space! - Infinity, Harlequins, Orks, all things Sci-Fi.
Post by: Battle Brush Sigur on April 06, 2020, 12:33:15 PM
@Bloggard: I think I should have a t-shirt made with that quote printed on. :D

@Lost Egg: Yeah, and despite basing around already painted figures is a pain in the pot it went reasonably fast. Took two days, and it was done. Then I also finished the bases on the Stormboyz, Looterz and characters (another 100 figures in total) and that was done.


Hello, friends. How do we do today?

I'm still working on those Gretchin.

(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2020_04/grotswip1.jpg.423aa885fdff3b2975f6319f3ac04da6.jpg)

These are a bit of a slog I have to admit. :D Amazing figures, amazingly converted for each one to be individual, but just that makes them much more work to paint.

I also sent an e-mail to the gentleman I paint these for with pictures of the Looterz and characters. He's very happy with them (yay!) and let me know that he got his hands on the new plastic Ghazghkull and Makari. They're already converted and should be on their way to me. Since I proceed OK within the deadline he asked me to do the biggest boss of them all and the luckiest Gretchin of them all as well and "as cool as possible" to the deadline.

Again, schedules thrown astray, hopefully people won't start shouting at me too much. On a positive note, I was kinda hoping I'd get to do the Ghazghkull for this army. He just fits the theme to a T and an army this size if worthy of him leading them into battle.

So yeah, hope you like the Gretchin so far (as little as there is done yet) and I hope to be able to deliver you with finished photos and army shots some time soon.

Wow! Seeing them all together is pretty impressive! Amazing conversions that you're client did and really given the paint job they deserve. I really like the AoS orruks converted to 40k.

Here's a question, do you paint things rusty and then put metallics on them, or paint things metallic and then put rust on them?
Title: Re: Sigur in Space! - Infinity, Harlequins, Orks, all things Sci-Fi.
Post by: Battle Brush Sigur on May 02, 2020, 07:06:18 PM
Thanks. :) Yeah, I usually do metallics - rust- metallics. I lack the imagination to do it the other way around. :D Sometimes with metallic debris on bases or something like that I might do just straight-up dirt/rust and then some metallics around the edges, but usually I do it as above.

Iyanden Farseer, Iyanden Autarch, Eldrad, Sister Hospitaller. All WIP of course. Fun fact: last time I painted SoB in that colour scheme was 1997. :D

full size image: https://i.imgur.com/w9Mue1f.jpg (https://i.imgur.com/w9Mue1f.jpg)

The farseer and the autarch are more or less done, Eldrad needs some more work, the sister hospitaller and her pal need a bit more work. Started doing the scrolls and doves earlier today though.
Hope to get the Sisters done soon and Eldrad as well. Then it's time to do the Triumvirate of Yinnead and after that it's time for Celestine and her two clone troopers!

Okay, let's get back to more light-hearted things, meaning 40k.

Finished the Iyanden pals (except for one detail i have to add) and Eldrad. I even finished the Sister Hospitaller!

So I proceeded to the Triumvirate of Ynnead.  These are to go with the Harlequins I painted last year. So sticking to the theme I present you with WIP shots of Cpt.Bavaria and Mama Bavaria:

On the colour schemes I took inspiration from a guy who actually travels the world calling himself Captain Bavaria and comedienne/actress Luise Kinseher.

Hope you like'em so far!

@syrinx0: Thanks very much. :) Yeah, just a bit over the top. :D But that's GW, I suppose. And their more recent move from selling units to selling a larger number of very big single figures.

@aliensurfer: Thank you. Much appreciated.

Well, I put the Eldar aside for now, went on to paint something different, and lateron I'll finish them.

...
..
.

Well, It's been a few hours since I started composing this post, because while typing I remembered some detail to add on the Eldar and I was occupied with that for the past portion of time.

Now I have to give that some time to dry, so I'm moving back to painting the Sisters of Battle.


This is riveting stuff, this. No wonder people tune in to look at people painting stuff on Twitch.

Clearly I'm out of the GW loop. I click on this thread and seeing those models I thought it was surprised to see what I immediately registered as fantasy models.
I've been aware of these models for years, but they hardly seem sci-fi. 40k was always bordering on fantasy somewhat...
Not that I particular dislike the models. Eldar are my 1st 40k love and as such my first wargaming army. There's just been such a change the last years.

Lovely painted as usual. The energy swirls look very daunting and you've done an amazing job.
Very peculiar colours for the cat, but it looks awesome. Good choice. Makes him far more alien looking than sculpt, which seems weirdly grounded compared to the rest of the models.

Post by: Battle Brush Sigur on August 18, 2020, 12:06:16 AM
Thanks for the comment!

I have to admit that I'm out of the GW loop as well. When I got these guys I had to ask "so are these dark eldar or eldar?". :D
If that helps - with the regular units they're sticking to the classic designs. Especially in terms of Eldar. Because they've ALWAYS looked great and their design pretty much can not be topped.

The cat of course is a Gryx (Those have been around since the RT rulebook IIRC. One of the bits GW feel obliged to throw in for us old farts. ), but I couldn't remember the name.

The swirly bits are a typical GW thing now I think. I'm not a fan of "spell effects", smoke, or stuff like that being sculpted onto a figure (lest of all digitally sculpted), but oh well. People dig it. People wanted the "40k timeline" to be "moved on" and GW did it. People dig it.

I like a whole bunch of GW's current figures. The Sisters of Battle range - which was already great, especially with the 2004 additions - got no less impressive (shame the new figures are so huge and don't fit with my collection). New Banshees are very pretty. New Nurgle figures are fun. Daemons in general.

Believe it or not in response to that (new sisters) I decided to go back to painting smaller miniatures. I'm really getting tired of all the scale creep. (Says the cranky old man.) I was thinking 15mm but ended up with 10.

That is neither here nor there... your miniatures are fabulous! Superb painting!  :-*

They're both, aren't they? I thought they belonged to a sub faction that contained both regular and dark eldar.

I bought the 8th edition book and all indices when they came out. I really can't keep up with the gw editions anymore and it was a good point to have rules for my whole collection and leave it at that. Wonder if it's a bit of a a sunk cost fallacy? I really don't like the game much anymore. It's never really balanced and I've played much better games since.  I'm somewhat tempted to update my jetbikes to the new ones, but can't really brig myself to buy any more gw models, save for some generic fantasy ones for other games.

But I do still love the fluff and the models. I still think at some point I'll just find some other rules to play them with. I think the indices I have combined with some Bolt action might make for an interesting game. I do miss the spectacle of my huge guard army on the table.

Funny thing, I've been part of this forum for about 10 years I think. I thought the models I had at that time where clearly superior to many of the old sculpts that where shown of here. Clearly that was nostalgia. And yet I see those models, technical marvels as they are, and I just look lovingly at my mono-pose warpspiders..... :D
Am I now officially one of the cranky old me too?

Post by: Battle Brush Sigur on August 18, 2020, 10:48:47 AM
@Ray Rivers: THanks very much. :) Quite the step in terms of shrinking things down though. :D I'm a big fan of 10mm (as you may know ;) ), I also keep 28mm figures around, depending on what I want to play. Lately I'm getting this slight little idea of maybe going 28mm for battle things again though. I blame the General de Brigade guys who regularly do huge 28mm battles in the Vienna area.

@The Voivod: Yeah, something like that. Ganging up to kill Slaanesh or something, I was told. It's got a big of a "guilliman returns" vibe to it - throwing "hope" into the 40k universe. We tried playing Chain of Command with 40k figures ( https://www.tabletopstories.net/language/en/2019/08/chainsword-of-command-the-40k-ening/ (https://www.tabletopstories.net/language/en/2019/08/chainsword-of-command-the-40k-ening/) ) once. Because we greatly enjoy these rules, and like our old 40k collections. It didn't quite mesh though. I assume Bolt Action is much better suited for depicting 40k. Many people use Stargrunt I was told. I'm very tempted to give 5150:Star Army a go with 40k figures as well. Tomorrow's War I played with 6mm Epic 40k figures. Oh, and of course there's Flying Lead by Ganesha Games. I played that with 40k figures as well. That works really well.

I too bought 8th edition because I was very, very curious about that one. And they did an amazing job in condensing 40k down to 10-12 pages without losing anything about the game really. I was a HUGE fan of the Index books, and actually as as optimistic as to think that they'd get rid of the codex system (and run Primaris Marines alongside regular ones). Oh well. I even played 8th edition once. It was ...alright. It's 40k.

As I said above, it's not just nostalgia. Eldar, from 1992 on at the latest, just rock in terms of design and background. :D

These last works of yours were already awesome, but photo-staged are jaw dropping!!!
You are doing an impeccable job!
Especially the flying figure is a must-see!
And this water-air effect must be very flimsy, I reckon it comes in parts and the assembly must have been difficult, but you did it perfectly! Cheers!

@DintheDin: All the more - thanks for the comment, even though it's out of your focus of interests. :) Yeah, putting bits around figures and adding a background really helps. :D The swirly effect (for some reason GW digital drawers seem to model anything this way. Water, fire, wind, smoke, etc.) consists of surprisingly many parts. Which go together in oft-surprising ways. But in the end it's a pretty sturdy model actually. There's alternative hands for the guy, holding a sort of symbol and a huge sword in his left, but the gentleman I paint these for is very sensible in terms of making the figures transportable, so he went with the smaller daggers. In fact the cat lady originally comes with a pretty huge headgear thing, which he also left away because it would just snap anyway during transport.

@Ray Rivers: Thanks very much, Sir! No worries. Just as it's impossible for anybody to put Baby in a corner it's impossible to put nicely painted 2nd edition aspect warriors to shame. :) In fact I think the Howling Griffons were released in RT already, weren't they?  Not sure.



Heyhey. Painting that Eldar Yncarne (avatar dude with the swirly effect bits aorund him) was kinda tricky to paint. That went reasonably well, so I'm upping the difficulty by painting figures which are mounted on friggin' springs.  :D :D

Well, no news on the giant Space Marine, obviously. :D BUT I played something sci-fi and wrote a rules review about it! If you're interested in solo or cooperative wargames, reaction systems, campaign gaming or unique wargames rules in general this very much is worth a look, I think.

@gamer Mac: Thanks! :) Of course clever paintmonkeys never paint anything in colour schemes other people (or the studio) used, because it makes things directly comparable. I'm not a clever monkey though, and I really like yellow construction vehicles. :)


Roight, time for some GALVANIC SERVOHAULERS. Or construction vehicles, as regular people would call them quite rightfully.

(https://i.imgur.com/QGIOEW8.jpg)

(https://i.imgur.com/fmqqlNi.jpg)

Really good set. And to be honest, if you buy that size of construction vehicles from Siku or others they wouldn't be much cheaper. I kept the fancy details a bit toned down in terms of painting because I'd like to use those along with more generic sci-fi as well. Also sorry for the slightly ruddy photos; my flash's batteries finally died. New ones are on the way, but not with me yet.

Oh well. Hope you like them, more 40k soon!

Post by: Battle Brush Sigur on January 19, 2021, 11:42:44 PM
@batu: Reading your comment was really nice. Thanks very much; I'm kinda touched someone remembers that project! I very, very rarely work on my own 40k stuff any more, since I don't play any more. I still love my Orks army and at some point I'll take proper photos too. I never did that. Oh, and of course I still got more than enough Orks to paint. Well, around christmas 2017 I did a little work on the Space Ork Raiders, which may count as working on the retro army:

(https://i.imgur.com/TNcHTiu.jpg)

That's the state the guys still are in though. We planned playing the Battle at the Farm from the RT rule book, but it hasn't come to be so far.

I'd love to work some more on my Orks though. Maybe playing this solo campaign of 5150 helps with that though. I did help me get 7 more Catachans repainted, so I got a full platoon for 5150:Citizen Soldier now:

Three squads of six (including a sergeant, corporal, and a guy with a slightly killier gun. Here we got a wild mix of plasmagun, heavy stubber, and grenade launcher. The 3rd squad, Sgt.Goosio's, still is one man short after Pvt.Paul got killed during the last Patrol mission), one Lieutenant with three pals (radio operator, Squat medix, flag guy. In games terms only the medic is of special importance, the others are just grunts) and two support weapons. These are an autocannon and a Lascannon. Note the wildly different colour schemes on these guns. These guys are just planetary defence force, so they have to get their kit any way they can. I guess the lascannon fell off a cargo lifter or something.

A squad of Squat clan warriors. They're a trade delegation's bodyguards who are stuck on the planet due to the invasion. Then there's three more planetary defence dudes, because having extras is always handy.

Most of these were painted around 2009/10 when I did some repainting of my IG army collected from 1996/97 up to... er... 2009? Not sure. As you can see, there's some really new bits in there from the Catachan command squad. I got those, a Valkyrie and a Manticore. All new stuff. But I never did much with those. Anyway, in 2009/10 I participated in a "Tale of

Anway, now I got the guys to play 5150. There's more than enough opposition around. Due to reinforcement rules there might be vehicles showing up for either side. My old Orks of course have a serious lack of vehicles due to the fact that ...well, there weren't any around apart from Buggys and bikes. I got a plastic battle wagon in a very sorry state which would require lots of repairs. When I stopped playing 40k with my Catachan IG (I also got Cadians of course, and Valhallans, because IG players never get enough :P ) I was just starting to repaint the vehicles. I think so far I got a half-finished Chimera?

Anyway, as much as warhammer 40k just isn't my main focus of gaming any more, there just is something nice painting one of those old metal lasguns again. Really took me back. :) They're by no means masterpieces, but they're ready for the gaming table!

I love this thread!

So much happy nostalgia and amazing brushwork in one place.

I started playing 40k way back in Rogue Trader.  Battle at the farm was the first game I played using photocopies of the card cutouts from the back of the Rogue Trader Rulebook.

We had one guy locally who had all the models as they were released and painted up nicely.  I used to lose every game but loved every second of it.

I didnít play much between 5th and 7th edition but 8th Edition got me right back in.

Keep up the great thread because itís keeping my hobby mojo going  :)

I have not tried 5150 yet.  Is it any good?

@fluffy05: Glad you enjoy the thread! Yeah, I think you didn't miss much not playing between 5th and 7th editions. I mean in the end 40k's always 40k and to me it feels rather the same since 3rd edition, even during the one game of 8th I had (albeit I was a bit more confused during that one. :D ).  I started in 2nd edition, but had most of my games during 3rd, despite it being my least favourite edition to put it nicely. After 5th I didn't have many games; I think one in three years on average. I even bought the 8th edition starter box. I was really impressed with what they'd done with the rules in 8th edition. Even wrote a big review then. But then again, I was being too optimistic, thinking that they'd get rid of the codex system and instead release the sensible Index books and have the Primaris line run alongside regular Marines and stuff like that. :D Oh well. 40k is fun if you got the right people to play with and slip into the right mindset, right?

Oh, and if you're interested in 5150, here's my review of the Citizen Soldier variant and my first game: https://www.tabletopstories.net/language/en/ (https://www.tabletopstories.net/language/en/)
There currently are three variants out (RPG and space combat games aside): Star Marine (which very much is about boarding actions with elite soldiers; very much Space Marine-ish), Gaea Prime First Defence (Earth being invaded by a technologically advanced enemy; bascially X-Com) and Citizen Soldier (which is based on the player character rising through the ranks and basically attaining citizenship via 10 years of military service).



@batu: :D Ooh, thanks for that!

Heyhey, I painted Eldar of the Iyanden Craftworld type. Starting with Guardians:


(https://i.imgur.com/oQPRzKv.jpg)
full size image: https://i.imgur.com/oQPRzKv.jpg (https://i.imgur.com/oQPRzKv.jpg)

Not 100% finished, some bits need some tidying up, but they're mostly done. And of course they'll get some heavy weapon platforms.




I also got started on the Dire Avengers. Those are still much more WIP.

(https://i.imgur.com/f8en04F.jpg)
full size image: https://i.imgur.com/f8en04F.jpg (https://i.imgur.com/f8en04F.jpg)

I was told to make those look especially nice, because the gentleman I paint the army for (it's going to be big. All the aspects, all the things. It'll look amazing) really likes them. And who can blame him. Dire Avengers are the quintessential Eldar-looking unit, aren't they. I love the look of Eldar. Never played them myself, got mauled by Eldar for years and years during 3rd edition 40k. But anyway. Eldar are just crazy pretty and GW is doing good not to change any of the designs.

Well, I hope you like them so far!

Post by: Battle Brush Sigur on February 14, 2021, 12:35:44 PM
@syrinx0: Cheers! Yeah, doing those was kinda fun. Also got rid of some bitz i had lying around for more than 20 years.


Well, I'm painting Eldar. Wanted to get the Rangers done next, because they are the next largest unit, but I had to wait for some orders concerning some details. Didn't finish the Dire Avengers, because on Thursday I had a little paint/chat thing on the interweb with friends, so I wanted to save them for that, but in the end painted something else: The next largest unit, Banshees. 11 figures plus Jain Zar. Slightly surprised that she's twice the size of her comrades. What's up with that? Do 40k figures scale with their points costs now?

Aaanyway, the Banshees are finished now, THEN I found another Banshee and another Exarch. Hrrr-umph. Oh well, those are the order of the day now, on the side I started basecoating the Warp Spiders and made some terrain bits. In the end Jain Zar probably needs some touch-ups on the armour. Overall I'm proceeding alright. The thing of course is that with this army, with all the aspects in their traditional colour schemes, I basically have to figure out a new recipe for every single unit in this army. A fair amount more work (not to mention the fact that these are Eldar, and thus have to be painted proper due to their inherent sexiness), but that's okay. Upside to this is that the whole project is very well structured. Kinda stop-and-go feeling between each of the units, but also well structured.


edit: Oh, I also bought things. First and foremost: new shoes. Good. My prior ones had a small hole and no profile any more, which had me roll for Difficult Terrain on ANY terrain. So that's good. Also had a re-supply of paints AND I bought myself a 40k thing, the Battle Sanctum. So that's going to be fun.

White Banshees against a white background. I'm a pretty rad dudeski, but that's not that good an idea of course. But it's not a problem; the figures still need the last looking-over and a few things fixed, and once that's done I'll do the 'presentation pictures' which will look nicer. Or so I hope.

Right now I'm finishing those dire Avengers, and then it's Fire Dragons time! the rangers will have to wait for now, but will be tackled soon as well.

How's everybody doing? Well? Good.

@batu: Cheers! Yup, they are. Because GW didn't bloody mess with the designs! ;) Which have been pretty much perfect for the past 30 years.

@Pattus Magnus: Thank you!

@gamer Mac: Thanks, much appreciated! Yeah, well, the bases are the same on all of these guys. :D


@Gitsplitta: Cheers! :) I'm a-okay with the open helmet. I'm grateful for any proper face in a GW army. I like faces. It makes things relateable. I do get your point though.



Hello. :) In terms of Eldar, I'm currently working on the Reapers and Warp Spiders.


Then something else came up!

(https://i.imgur.com/LX1zi3D.jpg)
full size image: https://i.imgur.com/LX1zi3D.jpg (https://i.imgur.com/LX1zi3D.jpg)
(they're still rather WIP)


It's a Van Saar gang! I got to build these ones as well, and the gentleman I do these for supplied me with all FW add-on blisters to these models. (so I built the Heavy carrying a Plasma Cannon of course ;) Because if you can, you gotta have that plasma cannon Van Saar, if only to brag with that fact.)
On top of that, there's the plastic box itself. Back from the release I remembered how packed these sprues are with bits. When I got these out of the box I was reminded of that: there's a billion bits on these sprues. Really impressive. I also like the building methods on that kit.

What actually made me like these figures though is that they aren't all that oversized! Pretty much (large-ish) 28mm figures. As it should be. Very nice. That means that they can be used along with other ranges other than new-GW's limited worlds. Cool, cool. This brings me to the next thing: Once the blue basecoat was on their armour I realized that these figures actually would work very well for generic Space Marines or heavily armoured sci-fi soldiers. If you want you can swap the heads; just leave off the tubes on the shoulders if you wanna use larger helmets. Also feel free to leave off the extra shoulder armour. I think that there's quite a lot of potential there, even if you don't play Necromunda. 10 dudes for Ä36,00 or so. Not bad.

Well, and then I got a bit sick, preventing me from getting any proper painting done at all. So I decided to build a house.

(https://i.imgur.com/FVK7Pdv.jpg)

Turns out I'm a bit crap at that, so it turned out half-ruined. That's why the big plastic lady is looking so angry.


Well, that's it for the updates so far. Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend! See you soon!

Yeah, that's kinda (or Khaindar? Ha! Because that's their German version name.) their thing. Eldar got their warriors organized in various 'paths' or aspects, each one got their own fighting style and weapons, and those here like to wear thick armour, sit back and shoot missiles. Seems like Exarchs get a choice of either the "twin rocket gun" or the "sometimes a gun is just a gun" variant.

I didn't build those, but as far as I know these are the Finecast variants (GW's get-by between moving from glorious metal to boring plastic, but they didn't wanna go with proper resin because they distrust their customers ability not to eat the figures). Not sure these particular versions even were released in metal before that. Either way - no posability, just minor variants in pose and extra dangly bits on their backs.

Thank god GW are smart enough not to mess with Eldar designs (too much), for they were pretty much perfect from day one. Just like Space Marines. Still, they went ahead and messed with those of all things. :D

Right, here's some more shots of the Van Saars:

The Van Saar look fantastic in blue!

Love the Fire Dragons as well.  I hardly ever play my Eldar but I love the models.  Thankfully, I got all the Aspect Warriors in Pewter before they changed to finecast.

The finecast is even worse in Australia.  All the imperfections and then add even more warping from the Australian heat  :'(

Iím hoping the keep releasing plastic kits for the Aspect Warriors, especially the Phoenix Lords!

Title: Re: Sigur in Space! - Sisters of Battle, Eldar, Infinity, all things Sci-Fi.
Post by: Battle Brush Sigur on March 15, 2021, 06:00:39 PM
@fluffy05: Cheers! Aye, getting them in metal was a clever move. I'm a bit torn on GW redoing the Phoenix Lords. At this point the sculpts have been around for so long, they're as iconic as Heroquest figures. :D And I'd hate to think they'd make them into a 30cm tall thing with sculpted swooshes, kerrunches and shabangs around them. But who knows. Anyway, the Australia point about Finecast is a very valid one. Jeepers. I remember a story someone told years ago when they left their Death Korps of Krieg army on the window frame on a hot day. When he came back, all the lasguns were pointing downwards. Annoying stuff.

So here's what your old pal Sigur did today: Wrestled with the Shining Spears some more. Then he decided he should give his airbrush a deep cleansing. And so he did. Put the gun back together - whoops, where's the nozzle (which I just put in anew two days ago, too). No idea. I MAY have thrown it into the drain by accident. Wow. Never happened to me before. Rather annoying. Not a huge thing, but it hurt a bit because I just got a new one in two days earlier. The old one I'd had at least 2 years. Well, teaches me to be more careful, I suppose. Not a major setback as I gotta finish the Shining Spears before I go on to the next unit.

This is a really funny army to work with. Each unit looking so different and so on. Certainly slows things down, makes me realize I charge way too little, but oh well. Just gotta work more hours and faster, right? :D It'll be a FANTASTIC looking army in the end though. Not to toot my own horn; I'm tooting all the Eldars' horns there. They're just so pretty!


In terms of my own gaming I'm in a weird slump. Usually when I gotta work a lot on a commission project I keep my spirits up by thinking about stuff I'll paint for myself afterwards. But due to lack of gaming with others the past 12 months I just can't get into it. All I know is that I have to get these Eldar done really fast, I have to get that thing done I got as a backdrop really fast, and I have to really get on to other projects. Very fast. Oh well. Overall I'm proceeding at an acceptable pace.

And we're entering that time of year at which I'm looking forward to spring and start listening to nice music (instead of staring at social media), which is good for the mood.

Bit less by the numbers. The gentleman I paint these for asked me to do something slightly more fancy with the cloaks.

Hope you like them!

@DintheDin: thanks very much!

@LazyStudent: Thanks, Sir. You will find that I'm very reasonable. ;)

@gamer Mac: Cheers. When I talked to the gentleman I paint these for I asked "what would you like me to do with the cloaks; regular green with some camo or would you like to have the camo cloaks be more akin to the surrounding terrain?", he replied "Why not both?". Then we talked some more about what he'd like to have done, it gave me that special kind of headache (the "this will be more work than anticipated" kind, but also the kind which feels like a bit of a challenge). Pretty happy with how it worked out in the end. :)


heyhey, friends. How's everybody doing? Everybody doing fine, I hope. The past weekend my dad got vaccinated, so that's good.


Here's Striking Scorpions:

Heyhey, hope y'all are having a smashing weekend!

Here's a squad of Shadow Spectres (that's the aspect Forgeworld made up. I think they were released 11 years ago! Time, eh? Crazy.), including their phoenix lord even! I didn't even notice him when i first checked the army.

Perfectly fine figures, perfectly cool dudes. Material's a bit iffy of course, but GW chose to use it, so we'll roll with it. "We love it where we from but we kick it where we at", the Diggable Planets tell us, which is something I try to take to heart. Which I took for "yeah, well...." in regards to Finecast.

Anyway, hope you like the figures!

Lovely, classic paintscheme with modern techniques.
I have s batch of those lying around. Really like those models, despite their age.
It's just that I'm not doing much 40k related of late, because they really deserve a coat of paint.

Post by: Battle Brush Sigur on April 04, 2021, 09:53:43 AM
Not sure I use that many modern techniques. Or many techniques to begin with. :D Two years ago I got called "old-school" twice within 5 months. For some reason that bugs me to this day. :D I don't see much change to figure painting at all (which is one of the things I love about it), but maybe you're right.

Either way, I absolutely agree with you. Great models, to this day. Because the whole Eldar range is just so well designed to begin with.

For me it's been all 40k since the beginning of the year. At this point I'm getting an itch for historicals, just for some variety. All fantasy and no historicals makes Sigur a dull boy. :P


Anyway, happy Easter, ye lot!

The white background isn't the most flashy for those guys, but I like the white. Shows the figures (usually) rather than some effect. I'm convinced that these will look very striking on a gaming table, and that's what it's all about, isn't it. Especially with white and black, less is more.

In the first picture you see them without decals, in the second picture you see the final version, with decals added. Hope you like them!

Right, hello. Happy Tuesday! I put away my own figures again to paint some more Eldar. In between I've been working on that Battle Sanctum as well. It's a slog, but I'm slowly getting it done.

(https://i.imgur.com/7l52na4.jpg)

cellphones do make trashy-looking pictures, don't they. Maybe I'm missing something.

Anyway, that's that. Maybe I'll give the grey a little overhaul, and it needs some more weathering and so on, but I'd say that the thing's 80% "done enough".


Speaking of "done", here's some lovely Wraithlords!

Nice work on the Eldar.  A very effective gold/yellow color. Not an easy thing to do.

The Battle Sanctum is looking good - properly rundown and well used. Though the rabbit on top does appear to disapprove of the damaged rails.

Hello, hello, hope you're having a great weekend. Weather's finally better here. I've done some gardening things earlier, but now it's noon and there's a rule that you shan't make noise (I was working that Kšrcher like a maniac) between 12 and 2 on Saturdays.

Aaanyway, here's some nice people: Ephrael Stern and Kyganil:

Ephrael Stern looks as usual (angry, mostly. But that's what you get if you build a wall out of pez candy and expect it not to collapse if you hop up and down on it), Kyganil I painted so he fits this collection's Bavaria-inspired Harlequins.

Hope you like'em!

That's an awesome model. When I was still hard into 40k I once got a decent amount of FW models. There was an Revenant titan, a flyer and this one. The flyer and Titan have long been sold off. I just had to conclude I'd never get around to painting them (luckily enough time had passed that the models had become so expensive on FWI  sold them at the same price I got them.
The avatar I haven't parted with. It's just an integral part of the eldar army and I really don't like the normal one. I aim to paint that one still, at some point. Maybe stargrave will give me an excuse to dig out some eldar.

Wonderfull job. I mostly see very clean paintjobs  on them. Often well painted, but a bit cartoony compared to this one.
It really gets across what the raging inner fire of the bloody handed God would do to it's outer metal shell. Makes it very intimidating.

Thank you! :) It is a good model. It's not that I dislike the 1992(?) Avatar, but it's pretty mind-boggling that they still sell him. Even back when I was playing the chap looked a bit small.

Yeah, the funny thing is that Eldar generally are very smooth and sexily designed (with some random nubs here and here, but overall very smooth). Forgeworld's sculpting of course is different to that. This dude's got texture, and I think they did a great job depicting the "dude made of metal with lava running through it" look. All these cracks and the textures on the guy are very reminiscent of coarse blacksmithing, iron casting, etc.

Painting him up like a red-hot flamey man I think wouldn't have the same impact and doesn't fit the sculpt that well. Also: painting him this way I thought makes the 'hot' parts look hotter if there's some contrast on the figure. I also enjoyed playing around with slapping blue, purple and green onto the tempered metal bits. This way I managed to throw all sorts of colours onto this figure, so the colourful gemstoned don't stick out THAT much as the only colourful bits on the guy. And on top of all of that, the dark metallic parts make the dude look dead 'ard and kinda mean.

In the end the loincloth probably was the trickiest thing to paint on the guy. So I freehanded on that big avatar rune. On the rest of the army I used mostly decals, but you can't just put a huge decal on a forgeworld model that size.

Of course I could have done a better job if I'd invested several more hours, but I didn't have the time. I think he turned out nicely that way. :)

@hubbabubba: Yeah, I'm rather happy with the army turned out myself. :) Sure, you can e-mail me any time!

@Ultravanillasmurf: Cheers!

@Warboss Nick: Yeah, I think it works rather well. :) I really dig the look of this army. Much more work than anticipated or armies of one strict colour scheme, but the result's worth it. These are for a happy (i got this confirmed :P ) customer. Me, I play 40k once in about 6 years at this point, and I got way more armies than would be warranted by that frequency of games already. :D

Heyhey, here's a little something for my own collection: Food booths by Micro Art Studio. Relatively cheap,  but rather work-intensive to paint actually. But now they're done and they should work nicely for all sorts of sci-fi and modern settings.

Look, dorky me hung the circular saw in the upper left by its cable rather than the handle. Oops. The circular saw and the drill aren't glued on, so no problem there.

It's been a widely welcomed fact that the person who drew this model up on a computer made a little funny by adding GW's mold line remover to the workbench. Of course I painted it accordingly (yup, I own one of these things since a few months ago), even wrote CITADEL on it and all of that. The pad/mat on the workbench of course has to look like cutting mat too.

These heaps of scrap probably are even more useful than the Mek workbench. Slap all of that stuff on the table, get out the vehicles you converted for Gorkamorka back then, get out the Gaslands rules and have at it!

Or do something else you enjoy with it. Who am I to tell you what to do. :D



I'm a bit torn on the design idea behind this set to be honest. I mean it's not a Mek Workshop, is it. It's a workbench with a wall that's just big enough for the workbench not to fall over. A workshop is a garage and has a roof. Reminds me a bit of what people who critisise Lego for what they do nowadays with their City stuff. There's a ton of detail on that workbench, but for a terrain piece.... I don't know. Online I've seen someone stick Orky bits on Renedra's Ramshackle Barn, and it looks way more like a proper workshop than this wall.

I'd say the piles of scrap and the barricades makes this set worthwhile. I'm sure though that someone who's got the inclination could take the workbench as is apart and put it into a building could turn this into a pretty cool piece of terrain.

Just a few thoughts on this set. What do you think, Madams and Sirs?

It seems more an accessory set to me, just they don't make anything to put it with that is 'Orky'.

Post by: Battle Brush Sigur on June 09, 2021, 05:36:56 PM
@aliensurfer: Good point. The model reminds me of a model set I used to own when I was younger:

(https://www.scalemates.com/products/img/7/4/9/1004749-22360-70-720.jpg)

Basically the same thing, isn't it. :D Bar for the barriers and other cover terrain.
But yeah, I very much agree with your observations on the model. When I was sitting there, looking at the finished piece, pondering, musing if you will, I thought they could do modular Orky things such as this one which fit onto the Imperial building parts they produce. As some sort of Armageddon situation: Orks overran a city and immediately build their own infrastructure into it to keep the campaign going or repurpose Imperial infrastructure for their needs (in both Armageddon wars they basically kept the imperial factories running, keeping the surviving workers on as slave worker force). GW could release that and thus incorporate that Orky range into the existing imperial one. It would be like 'upgrade parts'.

Earlier today I put the finished model back into its box for storage (good thing is that this one's pretty easy to store at least).

Here's what's going to keep me busy for the next weeks:

(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2021_09/1.jpg.28e82fa6cf1455c9f0e0824b53ca1dfb.jpg)

These are the motor pool of the Iyanden Eldar army I painted earlier this year. Got to working on a test model yesterday. I'm already through the "I have a cunning plan!" phase and well into the "I'm hating this" phase. :D Hope to proceed to the "test figure done, it looks acceptable, I'm the greatest" and the subsequent "geeez, I have to do this on all of these? That'll take me ages and I charge way too little for this" phase. But first I'll have to go through "well, I didn't think that there were THAT Many details on this thing...." sub-phase.

But now excuse me. I'll have to go pick up about 4km of masking tape before I can proceed.

Until then - I just realized I haven't posted these before:

(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2021_07/as1schriftshoop.jpg.fcc351d243e0552cf2b9011773f96d30.jpg)

An addition to a Van Saar gang for Necromunda. Rather interesting figures, these dudes here, and the stark difference to the regular Van Saar gang box. That one's bristling with weapon options and so on. The flyboys and -girls here come with exactly no options. Very much digitally designed kits, with just one possible pose and no armament options. The gentleman I built and painted these for provided me with all the Forgeworld upgrade packs though, which allowed me to at least give them a little variety. The big guys on foot are especially problematic, since they got the same body, the only difference would be the equipment on the left arm. I had to do some cutting and fitting to at least turn the head on the one and add a different arm and gun.

Still, really good figures. My verdict still stands - if you want some really nice looking sci-fi soldiers in armour, these Van Saar dudes are worth a look. Shoulder pads and shoulder hoses are optional, but I think they make for very good 'heavy law enforcement' or mercenaries or something like that in any sci-fi setting.

While the box doesn't offer any options for the neotek flyers (and precious few for the archeotek champions) their pistol-toting arms are fully compatible with the leftover bits from the basic box.  You can swap on other weapons to your heart's content since they use the same split design with the arm gripping the back half of the gun and the front half being a separate bit.  Similarly, the shield arms work on the basic box bodies, and as far as I can tell the arm pairs from that box work on the neoteks.  Anyone who's done the original Van Saar plastics doesn't really need Forge World.

Most of the heads from both boxes are cross-compatible too, although it takes a bit of trimming to get the angle of view just right.  Silliest way to do a head/neck cut I've ever seen on models anywhere.

That said, if anyone actually plans to play Necromunda with this stuff, the second box is a mass of trap options that you'd never really want to use in the game.  Expensive gear on what amount to flying juves that can't benefit from most cover is idiotic, and you'll get a lot more use out of them with a nice cheap lasgun and maybe some grenades.  The archeoteks' unique weaponry is a bit better but you're still better off equipping them differently, which (owing to their dopey model design) means using basic box bodies instead.  You might eventually want to splurge for the melee rig or even the rad beamer, but for a new gang?  Pass.  Take advantage of the archeotek's unique skill set and super-discounted custom cyberware to make a bionic murder machine and leave the fancy gear the official figs have on the shelf.

OTOH, the expansion box is a gold mine of useful arms, letting you do a lot more dual-wielding pistolier builds than the core set alone.  The extra shields don't hurt any either, although they're not great mechanically.

@DintheDin: Thank you very much! Yeah, the wavey stuff is just a little trick to make the otherwise very classic colour scheme a bit more fancy. In general though I think that the yellow-blue contrast with little red dots thrown in works really well, so I mostly stuck to that.

@Chief Lackey Rich: Yeah, I got the impression that you're meant to use weapon options from the core box. Can't comment on the relative usefulness under the current rules as I haven't played Necromunda since 1998. :D


Heyhey, I guess it's high time for an update!

Painting-wise these are done now, but I still have to add decals. The Cobra (the big tank/titan hunter) needs some more detailwork done, but then it's there as well.

But first I'll paint up two phantom knights and three heavy weapon platforms, then everybody gets their decals to finish off the look.

Hope you like them so far!

FWIW, I see GW is releasing a plastic set of Van Saar weapon bits with a slew of new options, as well as having teased both the big arachno-mech-suit and a new augmek with a funky high-tech lascannon accompanied by three cyberarchnid pets.  The latter I can do without, having long since made my own out of Wargames Atlantic spiders and some extra bits, but the rest are all pretty interesting.  Not sure yet if anything but the weapon sprue is from GW or if the rest will be annoying Forge World releases.

The bits alone might get me to buy a third gang box.  I'm already using these guys for a bunch of scifi stuff, and I'm having fever dreams of doing a whole platoon of them as Imperial Guard and/or genestealer cult brood brothers.  Certainly got enough lasguns for the job - and they're actually a little cheaper than Cadians are these days.

ď These are the motor pool of the Iyanden Eldar army I painted earlier this year. Got to working on a test model yesterday. I'm already through the "I have a cunning plan!" phase and well into the "I'm hating this" phase. :D Hope to proceed to the "test figure done, it looks acceptable, I'm the greatest" and the subsequent "geeez, I have to do this on all of these? That'll take me ages and I charge way too little for this" phase. But first I'll have to go through "well, I didn't think that there were THAT Many details on this thing...." sub-phase.

But now excuse me. I'll have to go pick up about 4km of masking tape before I can proceed.Ē

Had to laugh.  I feel the same way about most of my painting projects  lol

The Star Wars Legion Snow Troopers look outstanding!

The Star Wars Legion kits are quite good.  Ironically I prefer the resin plastic models over the new hard plastic kits.  Still I love all the amazing love Star Wars is getting in kit form.

Beautiful brushwork on the Van Saar and the Ilyaden.

@Chief Lackey Rich: Aye, this might get me to paint some more figures for that gang as well. :D Fingers crossed.

@OSHIROmodels: Thanks very much, Sir. Good to see I achive at least this goal on a pretty regular basis now. :D

@fluffy05: :D Honestly, so far I put 33m 18mm-tape into this project and surely no less than 5m 10mm tape and smaller. Not that I'm the most efficient about using tape, but it's pretty crazy. Cheers on the Snow Troopers. They were a bit challenging due to them being ..well, all white. And usually the first thing I look for in a figure is "where can I generate colourful contrast?". You either are a very sick puppy or these SW:L plastics are really bad. :D Just kidding. I assume the 'resin plastic' ones are less hassle to put together. So far I painted a fair few of Atomic Mass Games' (who are doing all the formerly FFG miniatures related things now, right?) Marvel superheroes (here: https://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=129389.0 (https://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=129389.0)), all of which are plastic. I didn't build them, but let's say I did some fixing and some gap filling/repositioning prior to painting them and they seemed like regular hard plastic kits. So I assume the Star Wars ones are along the same lines.

Bugger me thatís a lot of tape  :o

Cannot argue with the results though!

Have you got any pointers for using the tape?  Iím still very much learning by trial and error. 

Do you apply a varnish to protect the paint underneath the tape?


I have some of the Marvel Crisis Protocol miniatures as well.  The hard plastic is the same as for the new Star Wars Legion.

They are very good (athough not perfect).  I love that we now have access to these models. 

I used to dream of having the Star Wars miniatures.  Now as a big kid I can  :D

 :o Super work! I am in awe of those paint jobs. Also how you managed to keep the consitancy across all of the models. It is very very impressive.
I am guessing from your reference to tape, that you used an airbrush for most of it?! For the yellow did you use the GW paints range or a different manufacturer?

And the SW-L figures look great. I like the way you added in a little bit of colour on what is often painted as an all white scheme! :D

Post by: Battle Brush Sigur on October 04, 2021, 09:48:44 AM
@aliensurfer: Thank you. :)

@gamer Mac: Cheers! I didn't want to rely on the combination of contrast and primary colours alone. Gotta add a little bit on top. ;)

@fluffy05: Cheers! Nope, no varnish in between. I'm using the tape by Tamiya now, which isn't exactly cheap, but it's got a nice combination of sticky strength (that's the technical term, I believe) and being thin enough to pretty easily form around details and cut it along them.

@majorsmith: Thanks very much! The designs are really strong.

@LazyStudent: Thank you! Yeah, consistency is a big deal with projects like this one. Yup, I made heavy use of the airbrush on these. In general I was told that I use the airbrush rather sparingly compared to others, but these models certainly call for an airbrush job. For the yellow I think I used 6 different yellows. :D By Vallejo Model Air (for the base colour and initial shading, P3 (yellow ink), Schmincke (for glazes and more subltle shading, Scalecolor (for highlights by brush), some of them mixed with white at some point or another. Yeah, on the SW:L figures I was pretty relieved when I saw the FFG studio paintjobs, which made pretty wild use of colours on the snow troopers. I think I toned that down a little bit whilst still keeping a certain variety. In the end they're less pure-white than Stormtroopers, now that I think of it. But then again, Snowtroopers have to wear all sorts of protective coats and socks and whatnot, all of which are made from cloth, cloth will always look off-white rather than pure white, and so on. So it's all good.

@hubbabubba: Thanks very much! Given how I was to use a very classic colour scheme on a LOT of vehicles I went with a very classic look. Can't beat contrasting primary colours slapped onto the nice shape of an Eldar vehicle.

Swept away by the prettiness of the pictures I once more tackled updating my operating system. I managed to do that even, and the damage is somewhat within reason. For the past weeks I've been knee-deep in Tabletop World buildings. I'll put pictures of those over in a separate thread.

@FramFramson: Thanks very much! This huge barrel with the slightly swollen end (steady...) reminded me a lot of older Eldar superheavies by Armorcast. So the choice was to either go with that anodized look or a 2nd edition style flame pattern, because I had to do something with the big end. Since the latter wasn't a real option I went for the former.

Aaaanyway, back to the here and now. I'm sure you remember the big, big Orks army I painted between 2017 and 2020. In 2021 I got to add the first three vehicles (Scrapjets). But look at that number of boyz:

They need more than three vehicles. Speaking of which - could it be that I never posted the scrapjets from spring last year?

So yeah, that's them, but that's not enough, so I have to get as many more as possible done until Pentecost.

Here's the ones I got on the desk now (in fact I got them ALL on the desk right now, and it's a huge mess, but these here are the ones I'm trying to get done first):

@Matakakea: It sure is! :D I'd love to see that whole horde in action at some point. It probably won't be the case, but so far I sometimes ran into figures I painted and never thought I'd see them again, so never say never.


Heyhey, here's another WIP shot of those first few vehicles:

(https://i.imgur.com/17Kq1oO.jpg)


Slowly but surely getting there. Next big step will be the crews.

Hope you like them so far!


In other news, I went on a little trip the past Friday. There's an excellent wargames store in the general vicinity of Salzburg, called Silent Night Games. It's located in Oberndorf, the town in which Silent Night, Holy Night was first played in 1818. Pretty much everything in that town is "Silent Night [something]", and we like it that way. Anyway, the games store is excellent, run by an excellent wargaming veteran who also organized the events over there. The shop is a bit of a hub for the wargaming scene in Western Austria as well as South-Eastern Bavaria, and I happened to have quite a lot of finished figures for people who meet at that store I decided to make a day out of it, drive over and deliver the figures in person.  It's a 3.5 hours drive back and forth (American friends will laugh at the tiny distance) each, but oh well. I also hadn't met the guys in over 2 years (in some cases even longer) due to the pandemic, and I hadn't travelled any such distance over the past 2 years either, so off I went.

It was exeedingly nice. When I'm over there for wargaming events I usually stay over night, but since I just delivered some figures I wanted to make the drive there and back home in one day, so I just stayed in the store for a few hours to chat and watch a game of Kugelhagel. I really enjoyed chatting about all those small figure manufacturers we all love so much and how their figures compare, look at the two players' collections and talk about esoteric Napoleonic formations (first time I saw the lťgion irlandaise in action. Or Wurttembergers). Also had chats about the brilliance of 2nd edition 40k colours schemes, the correct hair colour of Ragnar Blackmane and Eldar on the whole. Good stuff. Felt knackered when I got home way past midnight, but on the way home whilst driving through Vienna I passed a house with excessive christmas decoration. So there's that. I kinda miss seeing wargamers doing wargamey things. Not that I don't play at all, we just had a really interesting multi-player game of Sharp Practice the other week, but it's nice to see other things for a change as well.

Shades of Gorkamorka, those vehicles all look incredible. Not like that's any big revelation to anybody who has seen the quality of your Zen painting skills. Your brush fu is over the top, if anyone deserves the title of Master it is most definitely you. All your brush touches turns to gold (and a ton of other colors too.) Thanks as always for sharing and always looking forward to the next bit of eye candy you grace us with.

@diehard: Oh, thanks very much. :) That's the thing - getting into Gorkamorka is probably easier now than ever before. Let's just hope GW don't notice that and do something to "reimagine" Gorkamorka.


Heyhey, sorry for the long silence. I've been sick as a hound the past few days. Really annoying cough and all the other things as well. It's not the 'rona though, so that's good, eh? Anyway, I'm getting better now, which means: back to the painting desk.

For the Deffkilla Wartrike I had an idea which amused me, so I spent a long time trying to fit all those bloody letters onto the driver's back. Turns out that it's barely-to-not visible once the model is all put together. Oh well, still time well spent, because the model makes me giggle now. :D

@gamer Mac: Thanks, Sir!


Heyhey, another bunch of vehicles is done!

Cheers! The gentleman I painted these Orky vehicles for sent me some photos of the games they had a few weeks ago. One of them was a "Race to the Warp Portal" scenario (Orks vs. Eldar), with terrain moving a whopping 12" each turn and they had to keep up and beat the clock so to speak. :)

Also, last week I incidenctly played Gaslands for the first time too!

(https://i.imgur.com/F5EPori.jpg)

Fun rules. You really need a proper sized table when using 28mm models, and I assume that goes twice as much if I were to use these new Ork vehicles. :D but it is a good idea.

Hope ye like'em! Finally got to use the Shrine Luminor for making the background of an elven warband look nicer. :) How was the weekend? Everything going fine?
Me, I met with friends on Saturday and we played Wizard and Uno. Really casual stuff, and as usual I got obliterated in Wizard. Worse than usual. Sunday I met with Col.Bourne again for the 4th game in our Chain of Command campaign. Battle Report forthcoming.

So that's it for now. Enjoy. :)

Heyhey, here I am again. Painting lots of 40k things again lately (the past 2 years or so. Certainly this year.), which is rather lovely. Speaking of lovely, here's a WIP shot of some more Apostles of Contagion!

full size image: https://i.imgur.com/jFOBwEc.jpg (https://i.imgur.com/jFOBwEc.jpg)

These sculpts. I have to say that GW really are consistently good with their chaos figures. And I'm not shy about complaining about GW, as you may know. :D But these are really nice. I mean a ton of work to paint because somehow they managed to make every single one look really different. Within this group here there's two figures which are alike, and it's two of the ones with the big scythes.

Also, look at that boss type in the middle. Look at that face. :D He's having the best time. Possibly the only person (Orks aside) in 40k having a good time. :P

@Raedwald: wind of chaos! ;)


Right, taking a break from all the Chaos things, I got to paint a bunch of Infinity figures! It's the Defiance (a kind of sci-fi dungeon crawler set in the Infinity world) boxed set, plus two TAGs (ie big combat robot suits of sexy, sexy appearance):

Right. What can I say about Infinity figures? I can just blabber on about what everybody knows already: Fantastic figures and designs (even though of course i'm an old git and find the slightly more exotic looks of earlier days more interesting), fantastic casting quality, and easy to put together as well! Oh, and everything's got cool, outlandish names.

Of course they are detailed as all heck and reward a slightly more elaborate paintjob. Speaking of which - the baddies from the Defiance box (Combined Army aliens along with some human traitors or clones of some sort) are based on the Covenant aliens from the Halo series in terms of colour scheme. The gentleman who told me to paint them asked me to do it that way. An attractive colour scheme. The rather colourful troop of humans from all sorts of factions sent to combat the evil aliens are basically painted like the studio paintjob, except for the PanOceania, Yu Jing and the Haqqislam operatives, who are more based on the colour schemes I used for these forces as I painted them for the same gentleman a few years prior.

One of the two Crazy Koalas who go with the big yellow robot I put on a hoverboard, because that's what I did with he same sculpt over 10 years ago for my own collection. a.) it's funny, b.) it's dead easy, c.) it's rather cute and d.) everybody loves Crazy Koalas.

Right, I hope that you like them! Right now I'm painting some highlanders for the Jacobite rebellion 1745, and then some more Warhammer 40k stuff, I suppose. Yup.

@Dags: Cool. :)

@hubbabubba: Thanks very much! I'm a complete sucker for shiny blue armour. Whenever I do non-grimdark sci-fi things I always end up doing shiny dark blue armour to some extent. This is far from the top end. The problem is that the top end gets really costly, and these figures here are meant for gaming (aside from looking pretty of course. Can't have non-pretty figures). But when it comes to box-art stuff, promo figures and so on, those would look a bit nicer. I mean the whole 'painting levels' thing is absurd anyway.

Infinity figures are really, really pretty, so I have to make them look pretty (to me). The funny thing about the big blue robot is that this was the first of the big Infinity robot models I didn't like in terms of looks. The yellow one is sex on legs, and that's what these robots usually are. The blue one's bulky and doesn't look as agile and oddly-formed as the others from the range. I get it, because it's basically a tip-top up-armoured version of that PanOceania TAG, but it just didn't appeal to me much.

So I put in extra effort to make it so I find it pretty, because ultimately (coming back to painting levels), unless somebody specifically asks me to paint things to a proper high showcase level, I'll just paint a figure until I find it pretty enough to leave it at that (and then some more, because I'm always anxious about people thinking that I'm slacking. :P ). The idea being that if I'm satisfied with the look of a figure I'm reasonably sure that the person I painted it for will be as well. Any other approach would make me like I'm conning people, and I'm not a fan of con people who feel smart for "getting away" with something.



@Blackwolf: absolutely! There's no joking with these chaps.

Back on topic! Here's more photos I took yesterday. Much better than the ones I took a few days ago (I didn't even post those). There's just good and bad days for photos, at least at the level of photography expertise I'm at. ;)


The whole batch all at once:

Baddies alien shapeshifter DNA thieves (one might call them genestealers!) or something like that:

The dude in the right creeps me out.


The rest of the aliens:

I went for the frankly weird artistic choice of having their skin turn increasingly yellow/orange based on rank or size. Not sure why, but I really liked the pale skin on the little ones and the deeper yellow on the big one. :P The little ones look like proper, proper Warmachine figures, don't they.

Here's the big blue JOTUMS again:

...and of course the O-Yoroi:

Just look at the deisgn of this one. I really like those big, round "upper thighs" and how you can see the arms of the pilot sticking out of the belly, mimicking the arm movements of the big robot (or the other way around actually). Of course there's a ton of Evangelion in all of these, but that's been the design go-to for the past quarter of a century, right? ;)


Anyway, thannks for the comments so far, hope you like those photos as well!

Oh right. Sorry about that. :D See, that's how much of a Nomad guy I am. At least in the bigger ones (Szalamandra, etc) there's a pilot in there, right? So maybe the smaller arms are just for getting finer jobs done or something.


Right, back to Warhammer40k, because that's what we always return to in the end, right? ;)

Here's some more WIP Nurgle things:
(https://i.imgur.com/dQS9TXv.jpg)

(https://i.imgur.com/66xqDQv.jpg)

First time I'm painting a knight. Third time I'm painting that plastic DP, second time I'm painting that FW Nurgle-DP. I'm having lots of fun with colours on this army. :) One word on those FW drones in the first picture - eversince their release (probably 10 years ago as well; don't dare to check) I really liked those. Not only the first models to feature this design for Nurgle demonic machines IIRC, but also all that mix of surfaces. The rusting/decomposing metal parts with the interesting texture combined with all the organic bits... really cool.

Lovely stuff,and great photo  :-*
I love the knight kits,and you chose the best option,all the other cannons et cetera are a bit silly (I swop them out for turned aluminium 1/35 barrels).

@Blackwolf: Thanks very much! I didn't build that one; that credit goes all to the gentleman who sent me these figures along with the order to paint them up all nice. :) But I'm not a big fan of the tendency of some 40k figures to sport all too many guns. Replacing barrels with 1/35th scale aluminium ones sounds very sensible.

@syrinx0: Cheers! :) Yeah, more colour always trumps less colour. Thanks!

@tomrommel: Thanks very much!

Right, here's some more proper shots of the units:

The arms are interesting, since the TAG's are meant to be piloted throguh remote presence; there's no actual pilot inside these things!

Just another indication that with Infinity designers, the rule of cool and the nods to the reference material always have precendence over 'realism' :D

That's actually not correct, some TAG's are remote, some are piloted.  In fact there are rules for Pilots outside their TAG's now.  O-Yoroi are piloted by Samurai who are Martial Arts masters and there is a O-Yoroi Pilot figure available.
