Ok, In an atempt to get two lazy... [ok, one who works, and one who also has work to do.. but not that kind of of work...]

Both Me, Athamas, and Koraath have decided to try and team up to give ourselves some form of colabarative work ethic to produce some semblance of a completed army... this time of the next ice age...


so without further rambling... on to the projects....





Athamas:
40k
Leman russ scratch build project
Chaos plauge marine army
Chaos renegades

WHFB
Chaos slaanesh army [mounted on ROCKS!:angel:]
*mystery project*


Koraath
40k
Dark angles strike force [~ 2 battle companies and support]
Tank company
Sisters of Battle

WHFB
High elves
Vampire counts



plus any other random stuff we happen to decide on...or find...



anyway, this should be updated BY BOTH OF US!!! on a weekly basis at least... if there is some form of inactivity on our behalf, feel free to nudge us for an explination...


on with the show!

So, how many logs is this so far Koraath? :p
Not complainging though, a I like thos DA a lot; the painting is wonderfully clean and smooth, and the bases finish them off perfectly :)
Looking forward to seeing more, from both of you ;)

Oooh; shiney :D
Fantastic greenstuffing there; really adds a lot to the model. Good base as well.

This is shaping up to be a great log :D

and one final thing...


my soon to be new character for my soon to be new army... [that for some reason i dont want to convert, so i may actually get them... oh i dont know... PAINTED!!!!:eek::eek:]

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v126/athamas/IMG_5743.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v126/athamas/IMG_5744.jpg

right thats it for now... maybe some more tomorow/ over the weekend, [the most likley time for updates... ]
now i actually have to do some more work to show you...

Arhalien
25-01-2008, 00:18
Woo, ninja update! :D
Right; very good greenstuffing on all of those marines; if I were to be picky I;'d say that the right hoof of the first marine is a bit messy around the edges and that the combi-plasma could do with a little bit more gap filling possibly, but that really is nitpicking ;)
Very, VERY nice work!

May I ask what the scratch-sculpt will be? Or is it for the mystery project?

athamas
25-01-2008, 00:29
yeah, the feet on all of them need abit more work, but thanks for pointing that one out, just needs a knife on it...:evilgrin:

after doing ~ 18 sets of legs you start to get abit cranky...


yep, that combi plasma needs fixing.. i am going to put some for of pox on there, just need to figure out what...


and yes, the scratch build is for the mystery project... as it progresses you should be able to figure out what she will be... [damn.. given that bit away.. but hey... that does not narrow it down much... :angel:... well really it does... but...:evilgrin:]

anyway, thanks for the comments, if you see anything that needs to be improved, mention it, its better to get the kinks out now rather than once its painted and i have to go back and do it all over again [an i would like to get htis army painted!]

and the other half of my time has been taken up with this lot

My new VC army, im building it all now, and will start to paint them after my exams [which are over in about 8 weeks eeek!]

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v126/athamas/Undead/IMG_5948.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v126/athamas/Undead/IMG_5949.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v126/athamas/Undead/IMG_5950.jpg

Still needs another corpse cart, 10 skelies, 10 gouls, 10 dire wolves and 10 zombies being built, then the purchasing of atleast one more batalion to give me raising potential.


so at some point this will all be painted and i will have a complete VC army.. [ill still have my mortal slaanesh army to finish aswell]


the think in with the zombies is a big place holder for them, takes up the space of 18 zombies and uses up those extra corpse carts you get, [and looks kinda cool aswell!]
