View Full Version : Castellan Raiders, Tau & Deathwing (Working Title)

22-02-2008, 02:20
I've decided to do a project log after some long debate with myself about being able to keep up with the work a "good" project log demands.

First off, don't be surprised if this thread falls to the bottom of the page... or even worse.. the next page! I have a lot of final cuts to make for my 3 main armies. (Tau,DW,Imp) I need to pick a name for my Imperial Guard regiment so that they stand out, as the models already do. ect.

I need to purchase some ordnance so that my "Artillery Company" can actually be an "Artillery Company". But i'll start you guys/gals off with my beloved Death Wing for now. More pictures will come tomorrow when I can setup a proper light box and all that jazz. (And get the dust off my camera!)

See my Photobucket for these images: http://s727.photobucket.com/albums/ww277/RedSarge/Dark%20Angels/

I won't post any names yet as they are top secret right now. SECRET
All my guard are named aswell, yes, all 60 of them! Painting to follow.

Update - Added some pictures of the rest of my Deathwing, (15) total.

Slobomeister: Thanks for the comment and yes, I plan on adding some more Terminators to my DW and they will be wearing robes along with some other conversions. I'm going to be adding robes to several existing DW aswell!

I will be busy converting and scratchbuilding for a future project and finishing off an old one. I hope it will as impressive as I invisioned on the tabletop.

Sorry for the double post, but it saves you guys & gals from clicking on the links.

More Deathwing. "Repent for tomorrow you DIE!"

More Deathwing. (The Vet Sergent still has MOLD lines on him atm.)
They are all named, the guy one post up, with the big storm shield is Sgt.Lysander. No relation to a certain Imperial Fist but with that huge shield and hammer I just had to call him Lysander. I assure you the others all have original names.. :D

If you haven't already noticed I have a crappy camera so it makes taking pictures difficult even with a light box. So these small single terminator images are the best I can do for now.

Changing to Photobucket, becuase it is superior to Imageshack and others.

For some reason it won't let me add another picture to the post above me.
So here is my Belial WiP. (Missing the apothecary forgot to take pics of him)

Ok update time. Here are some plastic Grey Knight space marines converted using plastic sprue and green stuff. These models are a work of my good friend Muramasa.

Incinerator (This will look great when its painted)

I have some more sprue conversions from him that I will upload this week.

I'll be updating with some Imperial Guard (1200 pts, excluding baneblade) this weekend and maybe some of my Tau Empire.

Those grey knight conversion look very interesting, I would love to have a closer look - that goes for the rest of your minis as well. I can't really comment much, the pictures are a bit small. But what I can see looks good. :)

The GK's look cool, and those termies make me want to play Space Hulk.

19-10-2008, 19:54
WOW! A whole six months later and there is finally an update!

I can honestly say that during the slumber of my project log I have been cleaning and trimming plastic parts from more sprues than I can store in any organized manner. I can't blame Apocalypse for this one because the three boxes I did buy, I completed.

Three armies and random mutants is a lot 'o stuff to "paint!"... :cries:
But hey, that's why I love this hobby! It keeps me busy when others would shrug there shoulders.

On to the models.

Here I have my Grand Master of the Deathwing Gabriel. Yes I said Gabriel, not Belial because my army is Post-Heresy (after) and I decide that characters like Gabriel, Anaziel (M.37 Chapter Master responsible for creation of Angels of Absolution) and Bethor would exist among my ranks.

This model is a commission from FreakForge, a very talented sculpter and member of this forum.

Brother Gabriels head is magnetized so I can swap his helmet for a bare head (w/hair of course) and so that he can get a better look at those flanking genestealers aboard the Space Hulk Charnal Sins.

19-10-2008, 19:56
I use this awesome model as Belial w/ Storm Bolter and MC Pwr Weapon.
The initial idea I had for this model was something that resembled a Grey Knight, because I love all types of Terminator armor and would play GK's in a hearbeat if the Terminators didn't have just "one" body sculpt.

I will also swap out the Terminator helm for a robed Dark Angels head and use the model as a Terminator Librarian with Force Wpn & Storm Bolter.

Sorry to triple post but the image limit requires that I spread out my images.

Once again, thanks to FreakForge and his skills we collaborated with ideas and sketches. His were hand drawn and mine took 1000 hours in MS paint!

I hope you can see the magnet I used.

Now if I use the Gabriel model as a Librarian then where's Gabriel you might ask? Not to worry my fellow battle brothers and sisters..

Gabriel returns as a Thunder Hammer & Storm Shield wielding warrior of fortitude!
(I'm using my Imageshack account from now on, it's better.)

Excuse my crappy webcam, it blows more than Mothra!
Because my webcam is so horrible at taking images I unfortunately cannot take images of my Masters of the Chapter and there accompanying Command Squad of power and magnets.

I LOVE PHOTOBUCKET, I've been a member of Imageshack for years! Photobucket it so much better, I can upload all of my images at once, and get the link codes for them by simply hovering my mouse over the images! Ok, enough promotion. (I do suggest checking out photobucket for hosting images)


Some random WiPs, the Dark Angel style helmet is not glued on.
I "was" going to make Sternguard, but ya know...

I hope you can see the details better. Once again, thanks to FreakForge who created this model for me.

I hope to get a camera or at least borrow one to take some good quality pictures of the rest of my DA, then my Guard and Tau.

I have finally sorted out the majority of my Space Marine bits and projects, enough to post an update this weekend!

No paint yet im afraid... :p
I really need to bring some color into this thread soon. The Grey Knights above have been painted (my friends work), I'll post those.. yeah.. :D
