    Templars. Angels, Wolves, Imperium Projects through the Ages

    Hello Warseer, I have been a long time member of these forums, in fact back to when this was Portent, but I have never had a project log. As I as sculpting recently I thought that it was high time I started a log, to give back a little to this forum, as many other members logs have really inspired my own projects or gotten me though a hobby lull.

    I thought I would start with my oldest army, my Black Templars. This was a fairly simple project as I was playing more than painting back then, but everything has at least a shade and highlight and I worked gem effects for targeters and eye lenses. I still think their simplified paint scheme with strong contrast shows up/looks the best when actually playing a game.

    These are the characters of the army: A converted Emperor's Champion, Chaplain, and a Grey Knight Lord.

    Re: Templars. Angels, Wolves, Imperium Projects through the Ages

    Does anyone know how to directly post from an iPad to Warseer, with images? I can't seem to figure out how. At anyrate, here are the infantry squads from the army, 3 squads made for up close and 2 for Razorback sniping with their plasma weapons.

    A very neat white you've got there! And is the EC based on the Mephiston model?

    Keep up the posting

    Hey Breazer and Droken, yeah these little guys are about 8 years old now. The white was a horrible pain, since it's just layered up skull over a chaos black undercoat. I'm working my way towards more modern stuff, it's just terribly slow to switch back and forth from my iPad to computer to post photobucket images, thanks for your comments too!

    Oh and the conversion was my very first attempt at sculpting and yes indeed, I did borrow the sword, but all the rest is plastic. Here's a better shot of the chaplain


    And the assault squad, an anti-MEQ/banshee squad. 2 Power Fists and 8 Storm Shields was just brutal back in the day =)




    The bike squad, two of whose members never got permanent arms as they were always switching their special weapons around

    And before we get on to the Blood Angels, I just couldn't resist slipping in an image of one of the Space Wolf Terminators in True/Art Scale. Who I should also mention is very, very much still a WIP. Thanks for looking!

    Re: Templars. Angels, Wolves, Imperium Projects through the Ages

    Man, no comments on the huge terminator? I'm not sold of the banner pole, seems to put the balance too much to the front of the mini, any other thoughts on it?

    I did find a few last Templar photos as well, (sort of) one of a long fang squad I tagged on to the army when doctrines disappeared and I needed to field the army as Space Wolves. And another of a landspeeder.





    Also, for convenience of viewing would you Warseerites prefer the armies split up into separate logs? I'm pretty sure there is a way to make jumps on the first page, but I haven't a clue as how to do this.

    Re: Templars. Angels, Wolves, Imperium Projects through the Ages

    Everything's looking good here ^_^ and I know, layering can be a pain. I've layered the old bad moon yellow over black... I believe you get where I'm going. But that was a long time ago, and now we fortunately have a lifesaver called Ceramite White.

    I love your assault squad, and I believe I will be following this.

    Keep it up man!

    Re: Templars. Angels, Wolves, Imperium Projects through the Ages

    Up next is a little something I was working on this afternoon, bit of a knock around project with no real plan. Ten+ years of competitive rowing and then 8+ hours at the grad library apparently = horrible back issues. Although it is a huge pain, its not effecting my swimming and is definitely giving me lots of hobby time. So I happened to have an old metal Emperor's Champion laying about and as I looked it over I found myself really unhappy with the pose, which is funny because I have one of the old, limited edition ones as well, and it was a major improvement from his phallic/sword pose, but I digress. I wanted this guy to look like a fencer and after a bit of looking around I actually decided to model him off of the Empire duelist. The shoulder pads are missing, but at least this gives you an idea of where I am going with this guy.

    Re: Templars. Angels, Wolves, Imperium Projects through the Ages

    So I'm actually going to split my wolves project off from this log, as it is becoming a far more involved project and will probably be my last GW adventure, man those price hikes are crazy

    Blood Angels were actually my very first army, I got the Epic boxed set way back in 1993(?) and loved the fluff and pictures and have always had at least a few Angels kicking around.
    Up first, some simple objective grabbers, meant to be riding around in razor backs:







    The re-paint and basing of these guys actually came about because of the girl friends' Jimmy Choos, which I whole heartily support, because I got to purchase a bunch of Dragon Forge Design bases, which are lovely, but both they and the Templars are starting to get edged out again as they are replaced with nice high heels, so the Templars are up on ebay if anybody is interested. And as soon as I finish up a few loose ends the Angels will probably follow

    Oh, and just because they were both on my painting table



    Man, once you go art-scale it is really hard to look at normal sized marines the same way

    Re: Templars. Angels, Wolves, Imperium Projects through the Ages

    Finished up the re-basing on these guys after practice this morning, anybody else from Northern California getting blown away by this hot wind?





    I happened to have 4 extra missile launchers lying around so that was the armament of choice for these guys. Funny thing is, you can quite clearly see the jump in marine sizing here, since I used old metal blood angel shoulder pads and they are a wee bit small on these guys.

    Re: Templars. Angels, Wolves, Imperium Projects through the Ages

    Sternguard









    As I didn't want to purchase much in addition to the models I already owned for this project I got my modeling kicks from re-positioning almost every single arm. As you can see on the assault marines, I tried to make sure even with just 2 basic variations of chainsword/bolt pistol, every arm was unique. Similarly, as the Sternguard are supposed to be carrying such rare ammo about, figured it would look much better if they were actually aiming their bolters, rather than firing from the hip.

    Oh, and in case someone is interested in picking up the Templars, here is the link,

    Also included is a turret-less land raider. And possibly a limited edition Emperor's Champion, if you PM me we could discuss including him.

    Up next, giant metal coffins of doom! Or as I call them, horrible conversion difficulty because of metal models

    Re: Templars. Angels, Wolves, Imperium Projects through the Ages

    Alas, still no comments. More Angels, these guys were a huge pain to reposition and cut up since I used the old metal dreadnoughts (again reusing materials). Still lots of fun to play around with the models, try to make it some what reasonable that they would be able to use those big arms of their/actually be able to fight with things.








    Sadly don't think the DC Dread really photographed very well, this might be a bit of a problem with the Death Company as well. Any suggestions of photographing darker mini's?

    These are all looking rather snazzy. I especially like the dreadnoughts and I am impressed with what you managed to do with those massive chunks of metal.

    Who would have thought black templars with white helmet can actually look so good? That Emperor's champion conversion is looking great by the way

    Re: Templars. Angels, Wolves, Imperium Projects through the Ages

    Thanks Horus, yeah indeed they are quite a bit of metal, but its also kind of nice to having something so weighty as well.

    d6juggernaunt, yeah I used to do black helmets for my Templars, but it got a bit boring I felt and I really like contrasting helmet schemes for marines (part of why I love Blood Angel color schemes so well). I'm a bit stuck on the conversion as I am unsure of what type of shoulder pads to give him.

    Next up, Death Company. When I used to play these guys came for free and randomly, used to load up on scout squads with veteran sergeants in hopes of getting those power weapon/fist wielding maniacs. I really like the new Death Company boxed set, but it naggled on me that a bunch of lads going into battle trying to get themselves killed would have such ornate weapons, ergo, I switched their weapons with the Black Templar chained ones. I liked the idea of them wanting to keep their weapons attached so even when they took grievous wounds they could still flail around and hurt somebody (hopefully not inside their isty bitsy Mk1 Rhino)









    And of other note, the Templars didn't sell so I revised the listing and added a few goodies if someone does a buy-it-now purchase. Figured the price is more than fair since with the new GW prices the models alone come out to something like $580.
