Alright, third time Lucky as they say. As I change armies far to often I've decided that if I have one ultra log i can avoid such problems such as army swaps requiring new logs. I have enough money to fund this so have no fear of monetry issues.

So at the moment i'm working on: A khanite dark elf army
An urban guard army
Occasionly Vamps
My Chaos BFG Fleet

An entire army in that Dark Elf scheme would look pretty darn good- not sure if its the picture but the armour plating looks like some of the detail has been lost, maybe thin the paint down a little there?

The urban guard look slike a good start too but you'll NEVER fit him inside that truck ;)

His scissors remind me of those little plastic scissor toddlers get :p
Stuff looks cool donuter. I think a thin wash of ogryn flesh would go down nicely on the elves' skin.

Great stuff. The one thing I'd suggest is to avoid the snow basing for the elves cos the red/green/white combo makes it look christmassy.

OutOfContext
02-05-2009, 18:54
Those guard look the cookie's edge donuter. The colour scheme is rad and the heavy bolter conversion is pretty darn nice.

I think the red on the DE can be easily altered to stop the 'Dark Elves have Christmas too' effect that might creep in. Maybe a wash of black or brown can tone it down into a crimson hue and make it look more :skull: than :D
Or the only other way to please the mases is by making a Sorceress with a candy cane staff.

I noticed that on the sprues. Seems like lots of cool arms, but the combinations of them might not be particuarly game-proper.
Might have to pick a box up at one point. I've always wanted to do a Blackadder command Squad :D

Mainly paint :p

The guard are looking smooth donuter (I like the guy with the fur hat) and the chimera looks interesting. Although, I'm curious as to what you'll do with the missing weapon and that strange black matter under the sensor.
BFG stuff looks nice too :)

donuter
18-05-2009, 21:45
The blackmatter is a cut up circle base. May glyph up the old weapon

Ragsta

Excellent looking Guard there, are you using foundation paints?

I love BFG, your wingless Despoiler looks badass!

Good luck with your revision (do try and do some, I hate to sound fatherly but it pays off in the long run... Yuck, now I feel dirty!).

I would like to see some paint on your command squad figs if you have any done :)

donuter
23-05-2009, 18:18
Ok guys, will have updates (pics) on sun/mon. I have painted a rocket squad and infantry completely and half done the command. Also got a Basalisk as its my Birthday today. Yay!

Ithmaril
24-05-2009, 10:53
I really like your guard with those Pig Iron heads, and the painting scheme looks quite down to earth, but individual nontheless. Seems like a good standard to get them painted, but still look great out in the field. I'd love to see more of them.

And your very distincitive red-green scheme for the Dark Elves is cool, too- as is your way to paint ork skin.

Very solid stuff overall!

donuter
27-05-2009, 19:02
I have been very productive and busy lately with a birthday, a jewish funeral and exam revision/leave. Thankfully exam leave has allowed me to do some painting and even building. And the order i placed with my birthday donations is awsome. Go on wayland games and check the bundles for a guess.

That's hawt.
Consider me jealous.

Vanheim? Are those the shorter but all-the-way-around armour plates? I got some for a Kreig bassie a while ago. They look ace, but damn, you have to do a lot of bending to get them to fit. I must have got the batch made out of elastic.

I just noticed you can rate threads. Also the pics of guard i did today, some idolators and some Stormtrooper conversions i knocked up ages ago. I also tried an attemp at camo on Vassili and my GD chaos lord, the best model i've ever painted (in my mind). So here we go...

Nice looking Stormtroopers and Guard, that Chaos fig is also very good.

OOC... seriously... this is a terrible picture.... young wills blossomed into a young man from this round teen you see in the picture! The chap stood next to him in the picture has also changed alot! Ive only really known these guy well for the last year or so and they have changed ALOT!!! thats what happens between 14-17 i guess.

Will, the games day model turned out nicely. I think your pictures actually picked up on your colour transistions far more than when you see it with the naked eye, in essence what im trying to say is, that your model looks better in real life than on here (another bad picture???)

The cloak on 'enemy at the gates' sniper looks ace, and all in all your guard are looking super duper!

If you were talking about a Land Raider, then that would be a valid question, lovely interior tiny little hole in the front to see it from. As the vehicle in question is the Valkyrie though... Of course you paint the bleedin interior.

All the lovely detail, on a somewhat pricey model, with easily removable roof section to show off the lovely paintjob, there is really no excuse not to paint the inside.

Otherwise, All of your guard are looking really good so far, keep up the good work.

Being a student i get the next 8 weeks off and have no forign plans so am now in full sclae model mode. In fact today i did most of my Vendetta so will have pics up tomorow (15th).

Wow. You weren't lying about that 'fro :eek:
I hope you beat him everyday for such huge hair.

The pose on the Officer in the first pic is epic. In fact, those heads really make this army.
I think you should try a diorama involving these guys, donuter. It could be awesome :D

Spite's head looks suprisingly decent on the new cold ones. The lower jaws a bit weedy though, and he might end up looking like one of Barney's friends.

But all in all, a decent update :p

Doesn't Spite's head have a lower jaw to it too? Or did you have his upper head lurking around and think 'Oppurtunity!'?

Anyway, enough of this gay banter, get it painted!

I got the old 100 box years ago and it had him in. I found it and thought 'oppotunity!'

I have a dilemer: Money and GD

I am, as ever, short of cash. Now i can get money but how to do it. Today i bought Space hulk. I wasn't sure what to do with it so my ideas was to sell it. I also have the issue that while my Guard are cool, they suck (unless i take 6 basalisks, cheers Mike) and are very expensive too remedy. Now i do like 'em, but with school work and Social life, it ain't easy to try and produce the army i want. I have 7 fully painted squads and still can't make 1500. So i'm looking at wolves. i read the book, built the stores figs and they rock. Easy. I have some marines i can kit bash but i'm worried at cost and stuff. I'm also trying to flog an old VC army (OCC?) with new elements within. Tis about 6K. I can buy wolves at GD. I also have some unopened Guard stuff worth 60 i can trade for credit. I also regualy buy alot at GD, regardless, but i'm often pleased, mainly posters and books and merchandise.

So yeah, what do i do?

DO NOT SELL SPACE HULK.
That is your first decision. I'm insulted you've even considered selling it :mad:

I'd flog your unopened stuff when Wolves are fully realeased maybe. Keep your painted guard, then you can come back to them if you want to. Then at GD, get a little bit of Wolves stuff (and posters and that), then buy anything major during full release with your store credit.
Stay small scale, donuter. Buying too much stuff at once = boredom and bad things.

Also, PM me a list of VC if it's not too much trouble. I might be interested in some stuff :)

2 new guard squads
2 FW commisars
a chimera
a basalisk

So any takers (or givers) ?

thesheriff
06-12-2009, 08:05
so im assuming that if you want to borrow a camera, your sticking with your guard.
HUZZAH!!!, we need at leats one nice guard army in the store (watch out for mine, evil laughs), and plus, whats wrong with sending 70 guardsmen to there doom and losing!

The problem is that all the people in the store are beardy muther huberds when it comes to gaming, and one of your problems with the fact your are doing 2 armies at once (excluding gothic), leading to lack of foucus in one area.

Don't get me wrong, both armies are sper-ultra-uber cool but it might be of consideration to put one on the back burner as to refine the other, pretty much what i do with guard and woood elves, (and im still crap!), you are a very competeant player, but the fantasy and 40k mindsets are just too different to tackle at the same time.

If you need a camera mate, i'll rumage, my dads got a good digital one somewhere, and if you ever need chering up on the guard front, crush my army for a laugh, i've gotten past caring!

So i go without. then chistmas comes an i get a shiny new phone with super camera (its more camera than phone).
So now i can finally show you what i have achieved, and that includes an almost finished 1500 point guard army, the firsr army i have ever finnished in my 8 years of playing the game. Thats fully painted, not just bought. So without further ado here we are

Finally some pictures! I am pretty impressed with the quality of that Ogryn, he looks like an excellent show piece, doughnuter! Maybe a wee highlight on those eyes to make them stand out a bit but he looks great.

The Guard are nicely done and their basing really compliments them. I LOVE the nightlight effect in that Valkyrie!

The gun on the Basilisk.... I would dull it down with a wash of Badab Black or watered down Chaos Black as its too shiny right now. Once dulled it should look the shizzle.

Get those IG finished, lets have more!!! Keep it up :)

I took my guard to a tournie in exeter last Saturday and came 4th out of 32 so not bad for a first proper outing. Nice bunch down there actually. It was down here that i picked up some cool deals on Warmachine stuff which is perfect for doing sweet little jobs on so thats what i'm doing. Coupled with some bases from Microart studios too they look cool so far. A layer of Snow is going over the bases too btw. Which green should i do?

Another post, another thought.

Well my guard are looking to be reaching there final outcomes (for now at least) with the addition of another entire platoon of men awaiting heads (command squad, 30 infantry and 2 heavy squads) and 3 leman russ. this bringing the amry easily to 3k has had me thinking. The next step.

Uni is comming up and its in london, so joy of joys i'll be skint. So what ever army i start now will have to be able to be continued on small but worth while pyaments. I have a skaven army waiting in the wings (3k, it hurts to look at but before the new WFB comes out it ain't getting touched). So what shall i do.

I've been thinking a cool marine army of some desription (black templars, per heresy IW, NL or black templars led by sigsmund) or a steam punk guard army, all airbourne, but instead of valkayires my art project has left me with some airship envelopes of the perfect scale, so could be hacked to produce awesome looking thinds. Vostroyans with ramshackle minitures (pit helmets) for infantry and i could creat a small elite steam punk force with more class than sean conery in a Russian casino

So good people of the interwebs, whats it to be?

thesheriff
22-05-2010, 19:49
You want to start a new army, and your going to uni......:eyebrows:?

Good luck:p

But seriously. New WFB is in june. Paint your skaven. Don't think to far ahead. And when your in uni, what money you have will go on booze, girls and meaningless crap that you'll never use. If you try to cut back on money at uni, you'll have a **** time. I could understand if you litterally had nothing to paint (which would mean the devil would have to come and claim you soul :shifty:), but you've got 3k of skaven waiting to be painted.

my advice, wait until new 8th ed, and paint your skaven. If any of the new rumors are true like need cheap charecters, 15% on rare (perfect for two doomwheels!:D), horde rule etc, you will want to play skaven!

Thanks for the idea's guys but oh how odd life is. My mate gave me for my birthday (today) his old easterling battlion thing. so 40 odd easter lings, command and 6 cataphracts. Added to my exisiting 80 odd easterlings with command, charoit and toerh delights i have come to the conclusion that a WotR easterling army would be cool. Unfortuantly the guys he gave me were in a tad poor shape, aminly due to the fact loads of spears were broken. So i am going to trim every spear and use barss rod instead, and because the pikes are better than swords, them too

right. Pics up soon. Now i'm giving you all some options on 1) what pictures i post and 2) What my next big project is.

For pics i have a dystopian wars fleet, a french FoW tank and some more fully painted khador (including torch in digital camo).

next big project wise i have a few. Do i start a new dystopian wars fleet to get people playing (set up games and the like), a cryx force (i have the new battle box and again teach people the game and have a cool second faction) OR
I'm guessing you've seen avatar yeah? Well you know that giant gunship thy have which shoots gas bombs and the like, i'm thinking of making one for my guard in apocalypse as i have a strong airborne feel and it would be awesome in those games to have a model that dishes out large napalm templates.
