Hello all,


I've been on warseer for years and have never found the need to post often but I've always wanted to get a bit of an album up to show off some of my models.

This thread will feature pictures of models that I am either very proud of or am currently working on.

The armies that these photos will come from include;

Fantasy: Chaos Beastmen, Chaos Demons, Chaos Mortals, Druchii(both vanilla and Cult of Slaanesh)
Currently working on a Skaven hoard army for fantasy

40k: Nids(hopefully not too many as this was early in my painting career), Raven Guard Space Marines, and my current project Biel-Tan Eldar

I'm off to get the camera working as soon as I stop typing, will post in a little while.


***EDIT: See bottom for non attachment style photos.***

Obsidianus.

Ok everything is working now,


The first model is Lord Obsidianus, the model I attached my login name to.

He is a Druchii annointed from the cult of slaanesh list and was last posted online in the druchii.net publication 'to make like a slave'(I think thats what it was called)

vampires are cool!

Very nice, how long did he take to build?

Lord Obsidianus

I cannot remember exactly how long as it was five years ago; pretty sure it was less than a week to build and paint, as I was still in (high) school and actually had time to build full time.

Anyways here are some more of the models inhabiting my shelves

This next model requires a bit of explanation.

Last year my local GW ran a conversion contest to clear out spare bitz from their drawers; I entered and this model won second.

This was built in one hour and painted in 20 minutes.


I think I lost the conversion contest because I kept referring to this thing as a 'Chaos Squat' which didn't go over well with the GW workers.

Here is my avatar who will likely be the other HQ for my Biel-Tan army.

Also included are some better pictures of Obsidianus as I got some better lighting set up.

Here is my all-mounted chaos army's general, Saalar'Drak.

Before the questions come I don't know which model it actually is, I just smacked Malikeths head and some gargoyle wings into him after I bought him from a friend.

Here are the final two pictures for tonight, both of them are from my Ravenguard Space Marines.

Enjoy

Hey could anyone copy/paste or link to a thread on how to post these models in the proper (warseer) manner(AKA larger).

Thank you.

I think I have it working, is that size a good one?

I'll get to converting the photos into this new size if it is and will take some new ones.

All of the eldar models are part of the Biel-Tian force I began collecting after my local GW went under(I bought the Eldar section)

And finally some projects that have been inhabiting my shelves and/or workbench for the last few months/years

This is a WIP HE mage I'm doing for my girlfriend, so far I have done the front, inside, of the cloak; as well as the tunic and got a start on the metallic bitz.
http://www.warseer.com/gallery/data/500/HE_MAge_WIP_1-1.JPG

This is a Lictor I bought from a friend that has never been stripped, just painted over. I still haven't finished the base despite actually painting most of him last year.

This is a random Dark Elf noble that I made because I could and because I've always been a Dark Elf player at heart despite never actually having an army of them for the last 6 years. They were my first army which I sold to a friend and regretted it ever since.

http://www.warseer.com/gallery/data/500/DE_Rider_WIP_1-1.JPG

...and finally, here is the greatest conversion I have ever made. I overexposed the shot in photoshop, will get a better pic online soon.

Is it just me or did those last 3 pictures not work?

Do any more experienced warseers know why?

That's the old Archaon model, IIRC.

You didn't link to a photo, only to the page with the photo. Make sure that you see the actual photo (i e the .jpg ending) inside the [img]-tag.

You have some cool stuff, looking forward to seeing more, especially the chaos stuff. :)

Thanks for the help, they all seem to be working now.

Here are three more pictures I had laying around

The HArlies are WIP, but the other two are more-or-less finished.

Since the post-midterm lull is upon me I thought I should post some new work. Since I last posted I got myself into blood bowl(bloody brilliant game).

Here is the elite core of my in progress dark elf team.
This pic is my assassin, two blitzers and a witch elf.
http://www.warseer.com/gallery/data/585/DE_BB_team_1.JPG

This is some of the remaining cast, including Coach, runner, two linemen and another runner.
http://www.warseer.com/gallery/data/585/DE_BB_team_2.JPG

The plan is to add a Lokhir Fellheart model as another blitzer to round out the squad, the other linemen aren't pictured but they are going to be assembled from the corsair box(have 8 models with no head and no left arm)

Here is a test dwarf model I'm doing up; I bought the team mostly so i'd have something decent looking to let people play(read. teach them the game with).

The first thing I did following reading the blood bowl rule was to make a team, this took about a week including modeling and painting.

Here are the beastmen, painted different colours to represent recruits from different tribes.
http://www.warseer.com/gallery/data/585/Chaos_BB_Beastmen.JPG

Here are the Warriors, conversions from the old chaos warriors, filing the hands properly was a bit painful but they look good on the pitch.

Finally, here is Cranial Hematoma, my minotaur. This beasty has played one game and has already scored a touchdown, as well as breaking a slayers hip; not on the same drive unfortunately.

I don't like ressurecting threads like this, but my latest project didn't fit into any of the other posts I've created to track my projects since.

This is a Crom model painted in Tzeench colours for a co-worker of mine who recently took up WoC.

I'll post the finished product once he lets me know what style he wants the base done in.

That mounted Druchii is great! Very characterful conversion and good colour palette.

I also really like that mounted Chaos lord.

Keep up the great work!
