View Full Version : 0ld1eye tries to finish something for once

11-09-2008, 12:21
About 6 months ago I started a project log, which died before it really got started. This was partly because of broken internets, but also lack of time and A-levels draining my creative energy.

But now... I have time. I also have faaar too many models to finish.

So, here are a few of my WIPs...

Cthulhu! (needs moar gribble, might rip off his face and start again) (http://i260.photobucket.com/albums/ii40/FenriXiaN/gribblesome.jpg)

Lord of Change, nearly finished. (http://i260.photobucket.com/albums/ii40/FenriXiaN/locfront.jpg)

from the back (http://i260.photobucket.com/albums/ii40/FenriXiaN/locback.jpg)

Spiderfexxyyyy (http://i260.photobucket.com/albums/ii40/FenriXiaN/spiderfex-1.jpg)
Made him from the spare parts of 2 fex kits. Yes, that is blu-tac... with superglue over the top it forms a surprisingly strong bond, I've found. Great for weighting hormagaunt bases too.

And the not WIPs. Here is the colour scheme for Hive Fleet Cthulhu.

Gaunts from the top (http://i260.photobucket.com/albums/ii40/FenriXiaN/gauntstop.jpg)

Gaunts coming at you :evilgrin: (http://i260.photobucket.com/albums/ii40/FenriXiaN/gauntsacoming-1.jpg)

My first aim is to get my broodlord looking gribbly, then I'll try and finish off my hordes of gaunts. I've got 2 more fexes and a tyrant to paint, not to mention warriors and a zoanthrope.
I hope you like nids. I'll probably throw something else in to relieve the tedium of 5 different types of blue, though...

Having another go at the broodlord... I've got the face sorted (I think), I'll have a go at tentacles tomorrow when it's dry.


(bit blurred but you get the idea)

basing it off this:

The broodlord's head is looking good, although I would recommend adding more tenticals and maybye small wings to look more like the picture.

Wow, tough crowd, eh?

Alright... broodlord now has gribble again.


Still not convinced, but I think he looks better than before. I'll see what he's like painted.

Wow, I'd almost forgotten I started this log.

Well, considerable progress has been made on my nids since I last posted. So here goes...

http://i260.photobucket.com/albums/ii40/FenriXiaN/P1010108.jpg - the complete army as of last week. Just needs more painting now.

My hive tyrant with two sets of twin linked devourers...

...and his brave bodyguard.

Meet Sally! Genus Carnifex Arachnidi, or Spiderfex.

the broodlord I was working on last time...
Someday I'll get round to doing his eyes again, and actually basing him. I changed the stealer colour scheme to vivid red:

Now, other stuff. I've resolved to start a death guard force, but use NO GREEN. So... here's my colour scheme on the shield of a warrior.

Now, currently I don't have a fantasy force. I bought the Lord of Change for a painting challenge, and it certainly provided one. (he STILL isn't finished...) I decided to expand on him and start a daemons of chaos fantasy force... pure tzeentch. I quickly realised my folly when I looked at how many horrors I'd need, and how much it would cost... but I'm sticking to it, though I am converting dryads into horrors. This is a VERY recent endeavour, got the army book last week (and a box of horrors...) and dryads yesterday.
So, here they are...

From left to right... painted horror, dryad painted as horror, and dryad converted into a horror. They're surprisingly easy to twist into daemonic shapes.
YES, I need to re-do the eyes. It's one of those little things I can't paint, and any tips would be VERY welcome.

C+C please? Thanks in advance.

I've been making more horrors since yesterday!

Haven't got much done, what with one thing or another, but the ones I have so far...

The first one I made. I really like the long flaming arm coming from out of his/her/its back.

I'd been playing left4dead when I made this one, and I based it - loosely - off the witch. I left out the face, which gives it a blank, inhuman look.

I'm not convinced about this one, but it certainly looks pretty twisted and daemonic. I made this one more so the others could rank up... you can tell dryads were made as skirmishers.

I really like this one for some reason. I'll have to file the detail off the leaves at some point, but it looks almost as if a small angry ball of fire has swept into a man and carried off his skull that has been charred clean of flesh. It will when its painted in angry reds and yellows, anyway.

I'd REALLY appreciate at least SOME feedback, even if you don't like my modelling and painting. I'm not an incredible painter nor modeller, but that's what this thread is for... to help me improve, and hopefully inspire some other people. I don't mind criticism, so long as it is justified, but I DO mind a total absence of posts. It's quite demoralising, to think you're making the effort to get models up and then have them ignored.
Thank you.
