Well folks time for me to do another project log. Hopefully this one won't die on it's feet. Instead of focusing on one army i've decided to do it on all of my projects. This will include my Imperial Guard, Space Marines and my up and coming Word Bearers army. "WORD". I'll be getting the battle force next weekend so loads of stuff for me to do.

Well onto pics.

First up the Workstation. Thats right Pirate Coasters. Yaaar

Hey Konrad, nice DK, what else have you got for them, or is it just the Command Squad? Shame about your IG Commander, it was bound to happen, I mean he doesn't even look like he has a weapon in his hand!! lol

You up for a game of 40k at vets night at somepoint? I will be back in Edi within the next few weeks and will start going to Vets night again.

dont want to sound negative, but you might want to add a small splash of colour to the DKoK somewhere, just to bring them out a bit.

anyway, game, week on wednesday??:evilgrin:

konrad
15-09-2007, 09:35
All comments welcome. Hmm i could do. They way i saw it i was trting to get as close as possible to realistic combat gear. So no fancy colours specially if your fighting all the time. A game sounds like a plan. 1500pts?

I thought i's also show some of my FW Hardened Vets i painted up yesterday. Got 10 of these bad boys.

I'm liking your miniatures, especially the cadian vets... though maybe you can try to add some eldar gore on that base :evilgrin:

I agree with redterror, the dkok would benefit of some touches of color here and there, maybe you can paint the mask eyes red and the imperial eagles light gray. The realistic look is something I like in a mini, but the drawback is that often realistically painted minis don't look too well from distance, as the particulars aren't so visible. I find that adding some light or color here and there fixes the problem without ruining the painter's efforts to achieve a real look...

Just my two cents, though!

Toschenko

konrad
15-09-2007, 18:38
Thanks for the comments guys.

Cheers for the comment Toschenko. I was thinking of adding a dark red to the lenses of the gasmask. And add some colour to the eagles. Hmm i could add some gore although i bet my friend wouldn't like that. Ahahaha

konrad
15-09-2007, 18:44
I thought i'd add some pics from a game i had recently. Me and Ravik thought are friend Struans Eldar. Didn't go so well. I found out a great guard tactic. Drive your tanks right next to Eldar and let them blow them up as they usually get penetrating hits, they will hopefully kill some of there own with the shot. Hey trust me it happens alot

1500pts sounds great. think the red on the eyes is a good idea, brightens it up but remains subtle enough for your realistic look.

well done on joining the ruinous powers. loving the look of your dark apostle. word:evilgrin:

Was thinking of maybe adding a Shoulder pad onto them. Ideas???

Also started work on their rhino. The inside details are done and look quite messy. Don't think Bezerkers would be drinking cups of tea and having doilies in their tank. Hahaha

Toschenko
18-09-2007, 11:04
Hey, I wouldn't run into that chap in a dark place...

Great use of bits, very creative. As for the shoulder pads, leave someone without, and give someone only one, rather than giving all the the usual, boring, two shoulder pads

Toschenko

konrad
18-09-2007, 11:24
Cheers dude. Was thinking of using just the one shoulder pad.

Well taking the advice of people i have gone and added shoulder pads to my Bezerkers. All on the same side and used the Marauder ones.

The Khorne berzerkers look mean, nice idea with the arms and I especially like the beasty head on one of them.

Do you have any pics of your librarian before you repainted him? He doesn't look that different...


he has a sword holstered round his back.

Swords don't have holsters... That'd be a scabbard or a sheath. His sword is sheathed on his back. ;)


Will be adding some IMPURITY seals from Greenstuff (see what i did there:P)

Is their a reason why you're going to green stuff them? If it's just because you don't have any spare Marine ones then I can give you some, I've got loads. Deathwing armies'll do that to your bits box, fill it with purity seals... I've got some of the bunches of seals as well. If you don't know what I mean, check my pics of Belial, the ones on his claws and shield.

konrad

I don't think so. His armour is darker and the flesh is alot better.

The purity seals would be nice. The greenstuff ones were gonna be all tattered.

Hey, that gren launcher operator has got a "sylvester stallone grin" (tm) (stallone's only known expression... :D).

The guards looks cool, though I'll try to soften a bit the yellowish tone on the plasma gunner visor, it's too overwhelming IMHO.

The rhino is looking good as the rest of your stuff, my only criticism is that the red seems to be a bit flat... you can strenghten the shadows with a diluted brown ink wash, only in the hollows. Also the mud is a bit too uniform in my opinion, you may want to add some wet mud with a scorched brown drybrush on the lower hull, near to tracks.

Just my two cents though!

SO you've started the word bearers again, when can my Fists show you the error of your ways?:D

Looking good so far, especially like the beastly looking Beserkers though one or two look like they've ran out of steroids, probably the ones you should really put shoulder guards on.

Are you gonna be joining in the Siege of the Emperors palace on Saturday?

The cadians are looking great (as the rest of your stuff :D): may I ask you how you obtain the unshaven beard effect?

If you're using foundation paints, I might suggest you to wash with an ink glaze the part once the foundation has set (that is to say, 10/15 seconds after :eek:). Foundation paints are a bit desaturated and flat, the ink helps to enrich the tone: I've tried red or brown ink over mechrite red, blue ink over mordian blue, flesh or purple ink over tallarn flesh. That said, in my opinion mechrite red suits well the tone of word bearers' armor, so it's not so necessary on them.

Thanks,

Toschenko

The way i do stuble is i paint the flseh as normal. But before the final highlight i add codex grey into the mix then pain it on. Then i do the highlights on flesh as normal. Once dry i add a wee bit of watered codex grey on it's own. Hope that helps.

More Guard pics. Sorry for the poor lighting.

Well i think it be time for an update yo. Well after winning a mighty 1 out of 6 games at the gt over the weekend. Great weekend tho. I dids buy myself the new Ogryn Bone ead and the Masters of the Chapter. I haven't got round to putting the Masters together. The Bone Ead is finished i have also finished 2 Berzerkers and a Bloodletter. So on to pics.

But first a Giant YELLOW baneblade from the Captain

The 'zerkers are shaping up nicely, and the red on the bloodletter definately suits the model! Good job :)

I bet that baneblade could be seen even with lights turned off... maybe it can even be used for room illumination :D

Oh dear God why on earth did you use a flash?!?
Yes that would be my baneblade and I can assure you it's nicer in person. Not tried it as a night light yet.:p

I did first but it was sooo bright. Thats not using the flash.

Nice work on the ogryn BTW

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure that in real life it looks much better (if the marines around it can be used as a comparison, I'm assuming that they are yours (?)), I was just kidding (furthermore, the pic doesn't show any detail and all highlights and shadows are washed away, so I couldn't give a comment on the painting even if I was willing to do)

Hoping that the above makes some sense (and is written in something similar to English), I close the off-topic parenthesis :D

Shadowphrakt
02-11-2007, 23:36
I like that model, and your painting makes it look fantastic. And i finally know what you look like! still......yeah. your bezerkerz are also good. the muted red is much better than some of the total bloody ones you see.

The dark apostle is shaping up great, I love his (very) evil mace :evilgrin:! But... there's a mould line on the plasma pistol :p

The rest of your armies is looking nice too, the ogryns seem to have been picked out of DoW: Winter Assault :cool:

Very very sweet looking log:D
Unfortunately you cant receive PM's so I must ask here.
Any chance of a close up and conversion guide to your funky IG officer who got diced by an autarch?
Guessing he just a plastic cadian with a HW team pointin arm, but whats in his left hand?

Catferret
23-11-2007, 21:11
Corrupt, I can answer your question because it was me who converted the model for Konrad.

The pointing arm had the old shoulder pad removed and the arm was pinned at a new angle pointing sideways instead of straight ahead. I then sculpted a new pad with GS. The carapace armour was copied from the Kasrkin models. The left arm is just the plastic Sergeant chainsword arm with the FW Cadian upgrade plasma pistol. The scabbard came from the same pack with a wire and GS hilt added.

Finished the Slannesh Icon Bearer and the Scout Master. The Scout Master isn't my favourite of the models to paint but i tried my best. The pics don't really do itt justice i'm afraid. Also this morning i was trying to take a pic of the face from the front and a gust of wind blew him off the window sill and he got an unfortunate concrete headbutt. All is fixed now. The Icon Bearer i enjoued painting, the skull helmet came out really well with the red. Enjoy

Onto pics

Wow. really nice work Konrad! love the paint job on the scout master. And the icon bearer looks decidedly mean.

Toschenko

Nice ones, I'm liking all the work you made on the word bearers thus far. That would be a top notch army when finished.

As for the scout master, well, I don't know... the pics aren't the best, that's for sure :D! Seeing what you can do with WB and ogryns, to me the scout master seems like somewhat inferior in terms of painting (I can understand your issues in painting models that you don't fully like, though. It's the same for me, if I don't like the sculpt I simply can't manage to get a decent paintjob :rolleyes:!).

Just, as ever, my 2 () cents,

Toschenko

Really liking your Storm Knights mate. Can I ask how you are doing your bases? I'm still trying to decide how to do my Dark Angels ones :p

konrad
30-12-2007, 19:43
Well i use old cut up Top up cards and maybe a few bits of sprue on a base of greenstuff. Then add sand. Once dry i paint it black and then paint it Adeptus Battl grey the add more Codex Gree to the mix, bout two or 3 layers then add a small amount of white to it. The rims are a few layers of Graveyard Earth. Hope that helps

Been a little busy body of late. So the updates here have been a little sparse. But within the last week i have managed to finish 4 Storm Knights Tactical Marines and one of the new Commissars. ALos have bought another Ogryn making them up to 5 strong and another Commissar, the one with the Power Fist and the book.

the yellow baneblade imprinted itself on my retina, so i found it hard to make out the well painted models for a couple of pages after. i have to say that i like the termies and the khorne berzerkers more than the death korps and the guard, although the ogryns are different, which makes them good

Howdy folks. Little bit of an update. First thing i won't be painting or posting for the next week or so as i'm off to Austria on Sat for some good ol Skiing, but heading down to London today. But before i go i thought i'd show some recent purchases/paintings.

First up we have the book Dark Apostle to read whilst i'm sitting in the room and trying to understand Austrian t.v

Models are looking good :), especially the commissar, you gave justice to one of the best of the new sculpts for imperial guard.

However, you should try to take your photos with a background, or try at least to use a frontal illumination: if you don't have any available (those seem taken at a gaming club?) try to take them with the flash on, but from a farther distance (or the flash effect will be too overwhelming)

Great painting!

That'd be a normal 'human' bolt pistol. At least I think so anyway.

Nice work on the sister hospitalier.

Thanks Goruax.

Little piccy of what i'm working on at the moment. Had a small 1500pt Scythes of the Emperor army way back when i was 17( 6 years ago, wow). But my skills back then didn't give the version i used justice. But with those 6 years of improvement i've decided to go back to them. If you don't know bout the Scythes they were pretty much wiped out by Hive Fleet Kraken i believe. So not much left now. So to reflect this in game terms i have taken the traits

Suffer not the Alien to live. As you'd expect they've thought nids alot.

Trust your Battle Brothers. I thought this would work as seeing as there's so few they'd fight watching over each other. Of course the drawbacks are quite serious too.

Aspire to Glory. Only allowed 0-1 Terminator squad or Dreadnought. I thought this would work as they have suffered heavy losses so wouldn't be able to field as many as other Chapters

Faithful Unto Death - One less Elite Fast Attack and Heavy Support. As above.

Hopefully it will work out in the games i play.

Anyway onto the pics so far

Here we Have Veteran Sergeant Titus of the Veteran Squad. He's w.i.p at the mo. Only the flesh is done.
