    Re: It's on Random: a mostly Chaos Space Marines PLOG

    'It's on Random' isn't just a Shaun of the Dead reference, I picked that name for a reason...

    It was an eventful weekend, I got some work done in the yard and around the house. I also was able to get some hobby time in.

    Are you about to scroll down and see some completed Chaos Spawn? Oh hell no. Something else caught my eye.










    It's almost ready for sand, I have a few more details to add yet. As always, thanks for looking!

    Uh oh, looks like I'm losing them! More scenery at some point soon, I'm building a ton of it to fit in with my industrial hell themed table.

    Here's the first Norris Thing pic:



    Nothing too interesting here, some greenstuff, a Marine torso, a plastic ball from a worn out hair tie that I saved from the trash (it was worth the strange look I got!)....

    Here's Norris Thing now:




    Doh, looks like the tip of one of the greenstuff tentacles snapped off. I'll take care of that in the cleanup step.

    Thank you for the picture of the sculpting tool. And, very nice usage of all those disparate parts. Your monstrosities are coming along quite nicely! Your latest one is superb. I especially like how the marine's head bursted out from his body. And clever use of that zombie head; it is easy to imagine his eyes rolled back.
    Then suddenly I saw it. With only a slight churning to mark its rise to the surface, the thing slide into view above the dark waters. Vast, Polyphemus-like, and loathsome, it darted like a stupendous monster of nightmares to the monolith, about which it flung its gigantic scaly arms, the while it bowed its hideous head and gave vent to certain measured sounds. I think I went mad then.

    Over a month without an update. Unacceptable!
    Summer marches on and with it the annoying side effect of limited hobby time. Yard work, outdoor activities, and cook outs have all taken a bite so far, I mean to reel that in a bit.
    I've been working on scenery lately, it's pretty quick and immensely satisfying. I plan on picking up the last couple of items I need for my game table this coming week as well, I'm hoping it will be ready to play on in early July!

    Hey, neat, Warseer is back!

    I hope everyone has been safe and had a nice holiday, mine was sort of lame. I slipped and broke my hand in early December. I've been out of work since which I guess is nice, but can't really do anything hobby related as it is, of course, my writing hand that I broke. Doh.
    Anyways, I have some progress to share. I'll post some pics in the next few days.
    Here's a teaser until then, my Death Guard foot Lord

    Edit: won't upload from my phone, I'll see if I can get it on my PC over the weekend.

    Re: It's on Random: a mostly Chaos Space Marines PLOG

    Ok, an update of sorts. After a few tries to upload, I decided to do what I should have done first and checked the What's New on Warseer threads. Sure enough there was a thread started by Teh Real New Girl stating that the image uploading is being worked on.

    I have some pics to share as I have been working on random stuff since Warseer went down. I also have lots of time to post them as well as I still can't work (or close my hand, although the cast is off so that's nice!). I'm supposed to start using it to get it back into shape and I still have half of the Burning of Prospero box to assemble, so expect a huge pic dump at some point.

    Thanks for following!

    Ok, I hope this works, lots to share.



    My WIP Death Guard foot Captain, looking forward to my hand being better so I can get it completed.

    I know the Death Guard aren't too keen on transport, but there are a few gunline armies in my gaming group that I am sure wouldn't allow them to walk across the table! I had been working on some rides for them before I injured myself, both were salvaged from a local game convention 'flea market' and were picked up super cheap!




    The Havoc Launcher is magnetized and can be replaced with a hatch I fashioned from some found parts should I not want to spend the points. The old school Rhino Hatch also has a strong magnet hidden on the inside so I can add a second Bolter / Combi Bolter should I decide to.

    Re: It's on Random: a mostly Chaos Space Marines PLOG

    We had some unseasonably warm weather last week so I was able to spray it, I really like the green I found. I wanted it to be like an olive drab like in the old M*A*S*H TV show. I have spent a lot of the past weeks sitting in from of the TV.





    I was so excited that it was warm enough to primer it that I completely forgot to add the Plague Censers (Ok, Dark Angel incense jobbers and some old Fantasy bits), I took care of that two nights ago though.

    The second Rhino:




    The paneling is from an old HO scale train building roof cut and filed to fit, there are a few of these on this one so far. The Death Guard-like symbol is from the Slaanesh icon from the Chaos vehicle sprue, this was not my idea, I think I saw it on Warseer somewhere a few years ago, so kudos to whomever came up with it!

    Re: It's on Random: a mostly Chaos Space Marines PLOG

    The back originally looked like this:




    You can see why I picked it up cheaply! That was what I was looking for though, I wanted them to look like they have been in service for ages and the owners weren't too concerned how they looked as long as they ran. This one in particular probably exploded at some point.



    I rebuilt the back and top with mostly plasticard and rod, there are some other bits in there as well though (Some Ork bits,a plate from a Chimera, an exhaust from a German tank model, and other randomness). The rivets were a (Chaos) God send, they're from the Tichy Train Group, I cannot recommend them enough! Many styles and super easy to use, if a bit fiddly, I feel like they really added a lot to the overall effect of this one. I believe I used the 'O' scale rivets, I can confirm that if anyone is curious.

    More to come after I rest my hand, as always, thank you for looking!

    A small update, the weather got cold over here again and my hand has really been bothering me:






    Work continues, slowly, on the second Death Guard Rhino. I built an alternate smokestack from some random bits and part of a pen. I really wanted to incorporate the Ork (Loota?) tank with the pipe and just threw it together with no real plan.

    Re: It's on Random: a mostly Chaos Space Marines PLOG

    One of the wheels was mostly snapped off of the back so I replaced it with part of a search light, possibly from the Baneblade kit, filed down to fit. I like how it doesn't match, I'll be going for a different metal effect to make it stand out.

    Re: It's on Random: a mostly Chaos Space Marines PLOG

    And, something completely random, a Half Orc I had painted back in September for my gaming group's D+D campaign:










    He still needs some tidying up, the drybrushing finished on the base, and a spray sealer coat but I'm pretty pleased with him overall. Probably my favorite paint job so far. I added the hand and pouch on the back, bits taken from the Dark Eldar and Kroot lines respectively.

    very inspiring terrain you've started to build. It reminds me when I was younger and our gang of geeks used to build all our terrain from bits we'd scavenged from around the house. Sadly these days with real life, kids, wives, work, etc we don't have time to make pringles tub towers or bendy straw factories. Great to see the hobby aspect is still alive and well.

    @LostCarcosa25: I hope the pic helps you find something similar and thank you for the kind words!

    @Rabbitden: Thank you for the kind words! I'm sort of the opposite as you, I seem to be getting more accomplished as I get older. Setting up Deep 13 (my game room for you non Misties ) has inspired me to spend more time in it. I try to set aside some time every week to continue work on something, easier said than done sometimes though.

    Subscribed to both of your plogs, btw. Nice work!

    Re: It's on Random: a mostly Chaos Space Marines PLOG

    As I'm sure you're all aware, I am a huge fan of The Thing. (Work on the Thing Spawn should begin again soon, another unit of Plague Marines, their Rhinos, a Lord of Nurgle, a secret project courtesy of Totgeboren, and more are in the pipes. I get distracted sometimes. )

    I happened upon a trailer for an independent (?) film called The Void and it looks amazing. I saw it deacribed as 'Hellraiser meets The Thing" and I feel that's pretty dead on.
    If you're a fan of either, do yourself a favor and track it down. I'd post a link here but it's pretty graphic and definitely NSFW. Enjoy!
