Hey all!

Haven't posted in a while, thought I would get back to it with a fun project!

Here's some pics of a custom Chaos Land Raider. It's just in the sculpting phase now, I'll get more posted soon!

Nice, Some great sculpting.

Any ideas whats going to be done next?

I'm laying in the preliminary paint today, then assembly. Should be pretty garrish, with the horror on the engine block adding a little fun to the inside!

Thanks for the feedback... More pics tonight!

Here's pics of the interior paint on the Raider, got a little farther on it tonight than I thought I would!

The two shots show the interior bulkeheads of the tank, I went with a swirling pattern with the colors. I want it to be chaotic, but not really garrish. The teeth got special attention to make them look like the gums are raw and bloody after mutating from the tank. I also worked some litanies to the Chaos Gods into the background, but it's faint.



The last picture shows the Horrors that have possessed the Machine Spirit of the Raider. Had a bit of fun with this part!


I should have more by the end of the weekend...

I can see why you're calling this a fun project! Looking very good so far, I'll be keeping an eye on it!

I especially like the litanies. The Horror bursting from the engine looks great too.

Funny how "should have more by the end of the weekend" turns into Wednesday. Here's some pics from last night, the finished pics should be up later today. You can kind of see where I'm going here...




The last pic show the beginning of the exterior paint... I ended up changing the idea, it'll take a lot longer, but I think it will look pretty sweet... You know, in a Tzeentch sort of way.

Good to see Tzeentch that's not painted royal blue/yellow. Really funky conversions too.
Love how bold your metallics are. May I inquire your technique?

16-01-2008, 12:56
Very subtle mutations...nice! The colourscheme is a bit too colourful for my tastes, but its fitting for Tzeentch!

Thanks for the feedback! The metallics are pollyS that I've had for ten years and are still holding up great. I start with the darker shade then work my way up gradually, but with Tzeentch I wanted a little bit of a "glow" effect, so before the brightest highlight went on I gave the bronze a chestnut ink wash and the silver a blue ink wash. The key to both is to dilute the inks with floor polish, which keeps the ink from getting clumpy looking, reduces the opacity, and does some nifty tricks, too.

Alright! Here's the first of the finished pics...





The final paint scheme is a little darker after several washes of Payne's grey. I took some extra time to blend the flesh tones around the eyes into the hull color, and did some extreme grey highlights on the darker areas. I'll post some pics of the interior in a bit!

wgat was the putty that you used?

The putty was Aves Magic Sculpt. A little more forgiving than green stuff, and a lot less money. You can find it online at just about any art dealer.

Here's the front... You can kind of make out the eyeball sensor above the front hatch. Unfortunatly, I can't light the interior well enough to show off the Horror on the engine, but you can see him when you open up the hatch.




The teeth are probably my favorite bit. It just takes the whole thing over the edge, and the fact that you can't see them until the doors open makes it a lot more fun for me!

Darkening the overall scheme with the black in between the purple brings it all together. Gives it a sort of 'stormy' feel if you know what I mean with the grey on black drybrush/blend... like the warp! I wasn't too sure about the teeth, but now that I've seen them in the open door, you deserve a "BOOYA!"

Original, Bold, Dark, and Awesome!

I really like this, nice work there.

Thanks, all! Here's the last bit; Sponson mounted weapons with the "old reliable" Rare Earth magnets so they can be swapped out depending on the enemy. And that means they can rotate, too! WAAHHHAHAAAAA!!! (Got to stop with the crazy laughing).
