Well folks, I think its time for me to start another log. I've closed my old one, its polluted, spammed and contains no good painting. This log will be different, apart from the good painting part, I'm a terrible painter.

For the most part, this log will contain 40K, maybe some fantasy and LoTR too.

First off, here is my WIP entry for the National Painting competition. Yeah, yeah, I know, I'm cutting it fine, but at least I started this model more than 30 hours before a competition. Seriously, I was up at 5 on the morning of Conflict Scotland finishing my entry.

Anyway, here are the pictures.

C & C welcome, it'll help me advance my painting skills. I'll maybe be starting a whole army of these models. I got it yesterday, and I absolutely love it, the whole model is brilliant.

For the bannery type thing, I'm going to paint it green, with the purple "sash" as a spot colour, as everything else will be a brown or green. With the metallics being washed a few times with gryphonne sepia.

Looks great but forgive my ignorance, what model is it? I want one. The only thing I would suggest is a wash of maybe Devlan Mud over the robe to reduce the harshness of the highlights.

Cheers dude. Its one of the Apostate Preachers from Forgeworld. I'll try the Devlan Mud wash, at this point, being 2 weeks from the competition, I can try some things and correct them if they don't work out.

Heres a link to the preachers:

I got it from bitsandkits.co.uk as I was ordering some other stuff, and just thought I'd get it cos its cool and I didn't want the other one.

Ahh, I'd completely forgotten about those. I'll have to pick them up at some point. Thanks.

Have done some more work on the preacher. I've done a couple of green highlights on the bannery type thing, and painted the cables black. The skulls have been basecoated and the cloak washed with Devlan Mud. God the new washes are fantastic.

Will do some more work on him, hopefully get him all done by tomorrow apart from free hand details. C & C welcome!

Sorry for general lack of updates, have been painting, but could not be bothered to post, as I've had a huge fight with my best friend (who's a girl :eek:) and we aren't speaking and I'm feeling incredibly down, as I was quite mean.

Nevertheless, I have done some more work on the Apostate Preacher. Hes Almost finished now, just a few final highlights, and freehand to do. I finished the skulls on the banner too. I need some ideas for the banner, should I just leave it how it is, or do some freehand on it?

I decided to do the sash purple just to add contrast to general muddy browns and greens of the whole model.

C & C please!

Cheers. I have finished him, but I just don't think the small changes I made justify putting up more images. Will do if anyone wants.

Yeah, though its only part painted. I wanted to try out Chevrons, and I didn't have anything else. The hull still needs doing though. Obviously.

It was only a matter of time before you turned. That lord is looking good. One question though, what's going on with his right arm?

Lol. I like the allure of Chaos, especially Iron warriors.

The lords arm is an augmetic made from Living Metal, he nicked it from digraced Ultramarine Sergeant. Honsou is an amazing character.

Thats alot of plastic! Though someone has to point out that they're missing torsos... :D

Shame about you sleeping through your NP comp, I missed mine too... :cries:

Why is your rhino guy painted yellow? :confused:

I originally mail ordered the Iron Warriors heads (5 of head 4 to be specific) to use on my fists, but snapped on of them off for my Tank dude, same deal with the chain sword. Double Edged chainswords don't seem very Iron Warrior like to me. Yes, the terminators don't have any tosos. Or arms. Or heads. Or back gubbins. Do you know how long it takes to clip off and file 30 torsos? I'm doing it right now, and its a real pain in the bum.

Nightsword

Fair enough. Nothing like a bit of recycling. Gordon Brown would commend you.

And yes, I do know how long it takes to clip off and file 30 torsos. I had about 45 chaos warriors sitting in a box for a month until I could face it, having just built 20 maruaders. Not pleasant.

I believe I have to do this with Chaos Warriors aswell, for Tale of Fantasy Painters. Am not looking forward to it.

Ah, the joys of our hobby. Its mould lines that gets me. I just want to clip the bits of plastic off the frame, glue 'em and paint them but no. I currently have lotr elves, chaos, daemons DA and Tk all sitting in my box, waiting for me to de-line them... That's the bit I hate.

The warrior kit is no different unfortunately. The torsos and back-piece are fine, its the weapons that have lines running down the shaft and the fingers. I used plastic weapons for my knights in my log. It really grates me.

I recommend filing down flash before you've assembled the models and also clip off all the bits, stick on a 300 or something, and get to it.

Will do that when I get home from work. I'll need something to de-stress me beside some of my other *ahem* hobbies.

Sorry for not updating very often, I tend to neglect this log in favour of my 2 other 40k logs.

This is just a quick non-pic update. I'll be switching all my efforts into 1 big amalgmated 40k log, so watch out for it!

That log'll include:

Iron warrios
Deathwing
Imperial Fists
Thousand Sons
Pre Heresy World Eaters
some other random 40k stuff that I might get just to paint.

Regards
