View Full Version : Kishvier's Guard/Chaos Marines/Tyranid/Tau Log of Ness!

17-06-2008, 23:13
Well, I'm here again to start a new log. With most (all of the most difficult ones) of my exams done I once more have a bunch of time to model. I'll post updates often (hopefully) and hope you guys like everything.

On another note, it seems Dictator and I are going to play in a double tournament. I'll be using my CSM's and he'll be using his guard. I'll keep you guys posted!

So far I got my Imperial Guard 'dex and a shock troops box. These are the models I have completed (I have tomarrow off from school so expect a few more tomarrow). Take a look, I'll post my old pics from my past log which died as soon as I get a chance, I gotta go...

Anyway here are the four guard I've built:



18-06-2008, 00:02
Good looking so far. I hope to see your progress soon!

18-06-2008, 08:52
looking good. Just one little tip, it is easier to paint the guard models before assembeling them (especialy the torso, and the part of the weapon wich goes agains the torso), really hard to reach some of the spots after assembelin.

Keep up the goodie work.


18-06-2008, 15:33
Yeah, I know that models are easier painting before assembly, but I've always done it this way, and most of the glues I have access to melt the paint off...I dunno I just don't want to risk it.

So, Dictator we're going to play together in the tournament? My list is all good, is yours? (and are the models your using basecoated?)

Update: I've finished my sergant, but I am having trouble putting a grenade launcher on a guy...anyone know how to get the arms to go on right without leaving gaps:confused:

18-06-2008, 16:54
.anyone know how to get the arms to go on right without leaving gaps:confused:

Might be youre having the wrong arm, theres 2 types: one for flamer and one for GLauncher. the flamer one doesnt fit on the Gl and other way around, not easy to spot the difference.

18-06-2008, 17:19
ZOMG!!! I finished the Glauncher and all but one of the squad, when I get it done I'll take some pics and post them.

20-06-2008, 13:29
Oh yes...it's that time: UPDATES!!! (The lighting of the room made my bases look bad, they are really much cleaner and better cut):




How do they look guys? I tried to basecoat them all with my spray paint, but all that was left dried up in the can *sadness*. Oh and one other thing...I got blue paint for that Tson in my last log everyone wanted me to paint. Though the stripes suck...due to a certain little brother and little neighbor I should finish him if I remember to next week noting I do not have a party due to me passing:eek: my french exam!!!

20-06-2008, 14:18
Looking good, you should drill the nadelauncher barrel thought. looking forward to seeing some painted models.

20-06-2008, 14:48
UH OH! is this a log by Kishvier!? UH OH!

looks good what scheme or army style for the guards?

20-06-2008, 18:33
Hey I drilled the Glaunchers out after the update...lol.
Anyway, color scheme I think will be dark for flak plate, dark blue or light grey, with black or grey cloth. I'm testing a little with my newish Dawn Of War Army Painter, so I'll get back to you guys on that, once I finish my last exam on Monday I will be out of school and will have a ton of time to devote to my new Imperial Guard Army!

20-06-2008, 19:46
hey kishvier im just making an educated guess that you live in NY since dictators location is NY. If you ever find yourself in Boston MA pm me and we can play some 40k

Brother_Chaplian Raimo
20-06-2008, 20:13
Excellent deduction, Mr. Holmes. Me, Kishvier, and Dictator (probably among others) all live in New York, although about as far form Boston as you can get- near Buffalo, to be exact.

I'm going to reserve judgment on this log until you stop posting pictures of the same unpainted, unconverted Guardsmen...

20-06-2008, 21:52
Um... yeah I'll get some better stuff up soon, yes it seems Dictator, Raimo and myself live in the WNY area, though Raimo and I live in East Aurora.

21-06-2008, 00:26
ha i knew it. well im going to be in buffalo NY for the NPPL this year so FYI i'll be crashing on all your couches.

Now lets see some based and painted guard!

21-06-2008, 19:18
Working on it. Right now I'm painting a Tyranid Warrior. My spray primer died so next weekend Dictator and myself will be playing our tournament so I'll get some then. I'll post a pic when I'm done with the warrior.

23-06-2008, 17:54
Hey, any updates on this?

23-06-2008, 21:00
My Tyranid Warrior is so close to being done! Now that I finished school (this morning) I can put full effort into my armies.

Sword of Glory
23-06-2008, 21:29
*grumble* finished school? *mutter* 'nother four weeks *grumble*
what sort of army is this going to be? (i.e mechanised, drop troop etc)
in fact, don't answer, paint!

30-06-2008, 18:36
YEAH! I deserve a medal!!! I got something done!:eek: Last Saturday I finally got to the Jester's Cap to go to a tourny, with Dictator I might add which we got 2nd place at! And I got some black spray primer, erm, it seems to have a giant sticker that says "safety hazard" and stuff on it over a old can of black primer (Note, this is GW stuff). I tried using it and it was...well, different. At first it seemed amazing! I sprayed too much paint on a guardsmen, and it all dryed in about 15 seconds and there wasn't too much, strangely there wasn't enough. Another strange thing was the fact that even though I followed the directions, shook can for a minute, held 30cm or a foot away from model and it came out freakishly uneven, little bumps all over the model, which I hope will not make the final paint job uneven, though you can't see the bumps without looking closely at the models. And...the spray jet was very short range, and fanned out way to big way to fast. This has caused me to be pissed at GW supplies for the last time, so if anyone has an idea on a new painting company that sells black primer spray cans, and just colors in little cans or whatever bring it up.

Anyway, if you didn't die reading my angry rant on how my spray primer sucks, here is the Leman Russ I won at the tourny with Dictator, sadly primed in the spray paint, though you can tell because I noticed the problem on the guardsman about a quarter of the way into spraying it:




Yeah! I really did something!

30-06-2008, 19:51
Now that's a really nice prize! By the way, I don't know if Jesters caps seels it, but Armory Spray Primer is absolutely the best! I've never had any problems and it's totally flat which is awesome- and cheaper too. I know Transit station sells it- or you could order some off the Warstore.

Decided on a scheme for sure yet?
Oh and post some of your second-placing Chaos marines!

01-07-2008, 13:45
Cool, my dad and I were discussing where to find new paints to use, Transit Station was where I would look and some art store near his job was where he was going to look. Here is some of my past work:

For these two the pics are old, so I've cut the extra little things hanging off their coats and I've repainted their helms as a large bit of the paint started coming off of them...crappy GW paint (another note, I think I'm using too many but whatever, the lighting made them a TON more shiney then they are in person):


Raimo and I painted this one together (though he painted the evil eye):

I can't seem to find any pictures of any other models, my family got a new computer not long ago so not everything on the old computer is on the new one...

01-07-2008, 13:57
And some more past work, in this case, my first actual try on painting a model well, a little messy but not bad for my first try, and forgive the pic quality the dude has adopted a lot of dust sitting on my desk and the lighting isn't the greatest. Again he looks much more shiney then he does in person:


01-07-2008, 21:52
Okay, the test guardsmen was crappy, so I uncoated him and re-base-coated him. I'm still looking for a cool scheme, anyone have any cool scheme thought up? Anyone have some pictures? I'm a bit stuck at this point on my Guard...

02-07-2008, 00:21
well my OLD guard army the Vectis 412th Rangers were as follows : black armour and catachan green fatigues. very simple and it looks nice.

02-07-2008, 14:49
Yeah, I think I'll make every squad a different color scheme! It won't be the most unified looking but I can say they're a bunch of broken regiments put together in a kick-ass looking force. First squad will be Cadian 8th I guess, then some 512th Orbital Defence (Codex Grey Armour, Black fatigues) and finally some 27th Brimlock Dragons, my made up regiment (not sure on color scheme for them...).

Sword of Glory
02-07-2008, 15:32
may I humbly suggest my own colour scheme of green armour and white fatigues? (sp?) or don't do Cadian 8th (they're boring =P) and use Ghostmakers or something different from out of the codex? Push the boat out a bit ^_^ (although please don't do yellow and purple guard...)

02-07-2008, 15:43

Must say i agree, 8th cadian is boring, you could try something along the lines of green flak armour and brown fatigues.

Yellow and purple guard... :wtf: Only the planetary defence forces would wear something like that :chrome: :rolleyes: :

02-07-2008, 18:22
...how about blue cloth and orange Armour and call them the MUDKIPZ!!!!!!! and their banners should have mudkipz on them.!!!!

but i like what SoG said the green and white color scheme might do cool, kind of an old German winter camo maby?

04-07-2008, 14:03
I could paint every squad to a nascar color scheme and have a banner for each squad that had that car's advertisements...

No, I think I'll do something like...I dunno. Anyone have some pictures they could show?

Oh yes, I've had a crazy week, so I haven't got anything done, gotta go to a party right now (not crappy crazy but awesome I'm partying every day crazy:D).

05-07-2008, 01:45
no dude thats perfect make like a bunch of iron fist squads mounted in nascar style chimeras and the guard are like the pit crew!

05-07-2008, 14:35
Lol, I could pay for my army by renting little ads on the sides of my chimera's and the track guards on my Russ's.:D Finally an easy way to make money...

05-07-2008, 15:40
I am going to suggest
White or off white armor, with brown fatigues.
Very cool IMHO

05-07-2008, 18:50
Lol, I could pay for my army by renting little ads on the sides of my chimera's and the track guards on my Russ's.:D Finally an easy way to make money...

Lol, wonder if the real pro gamers do that :eyebrows:

Leman russ covered in coke and mcDonalds adds :p

05-07-2008, 20:03
I could use the new brown wash on a white...I like that idea Dictator, I'll have to think about what colors to use...

And yes, I definitly think the pros have Leman Russ's covered in Coke and Pepsi ads!

06-07-2008, 22:26
YES! I have found a color scheme for my guard, Regal Blue Flak Armour and Brown Fatigues. I will attempt to get some painted asap since I haven't done much lately. On yet another note my little brother is off to camp (yes the same as Brother Raimo, I fear for my brother's life) so I'll have some time on my hands. Starting a chaos BFG fleet and built a little Tyranid frigate from scratch.

Oh yes, and if anyone wants to buy the Librarian thats pic'ed above you can, give me a PM and we can decide the price (I need to make a little cash here and there).

07-07-2008, 18:50
It's that time again: UPDATES!!! WOOT!!!
Yes hold your applause. Here is a BFG Tyranid Frigate I scratchbuilt and my first guardsmen with the new scheme, note the guardsmen isn't fully painted, it's just there to give you the idea of how it'll work I still have to paint the gun, chainsword and various knick-knacks:




And my massively amazing avatar, since it seems a lot of people can't read *Note the orange object in the bottom is really a chewed up orange, thanks to Raimo for finding the pic*

mmm, camoflaged (sp?) or is that 'cause I'm colour blind? :D
whichever, looks rather pretty mate :)

07-07-2008, 19:53
It seems my brother left a present before leaving to camp and didn't want me to kno about it, I now have a stomped XV8 Battlesuit...I blame the Bristolian accent, quote from monty python!:D

"Incidentally, the Bristolian accent perhaps the most dangerous in the world. While some accents are merely annoying, Bristolian, if the correct phrases are spoken, can be used as a weapon, shattering human eardrums or light vehicle armour at up to 25 yards. Speaking in a Bristolian accent outside of the West Country is considered either attempted murder or an act of war, depending on context."

It seems to have penatrated the stand for the battlesuit...Oh god you must love monty python...

07-07-2008, 23:02
Moar Updatez! I finished the guardsmen pretty much, I still have to decide what color to use for highlighting though...any ideas? Anyway here are some pics of him at this point, more guard are in the works...Crap, got some brown on the chainsword...:(



09-07-2008, 18:32
Okay, I haven't gotten much done, though I did manage to finally find a pin vice!!! :DYAY!!!:D I've been looking for one for like a year and a half so I'm happy. Also got some other stuff such as knife blades since all of mine were broken, so thats cool. Oh and I painted an Icon Of Nurgle on one of my CSMs. It looks quiet cool, for working on it for 8 minutes.:D I'll take a picture once the marine is fully painted.

10-07-2008, 00:22
The blue on the armor is too bright IMO- i's try toning it down a bit. As for the highlights- ice blue might work

10-07-2008, 00:34
Okay, what should I use to tone the blue down?

13-07-2008, 22:29
Okay, no answers from anyone? Thats okay. Tomarrow I'm getting the 5th rulebook. I'm going to try making a palanquin of Nurgle, note the TRY because I suck at sculpting. Any ideas people as to what materials to use? I'm getting new greenstuff tommarrow because the stuff I've got has become all sticky and nasty...doesn't mix together anymore either. Anyways if anyone has some ideas for the palanquin they'd be great, I've got a possessed part dude to turn into my lord who'll ride the palanquin almost done, I'm going right now to try and finish him up.

15-07-2008, 23:18

Well, it seems I'm alone here, just incase someone or something:eyebrows: takes a new bit of interest in my log I am going to state this:

On Friday, I have to pick up my younger brother from camp (yes the one Raimo's at) and there is a store there, so I'm pondering on what to get there. I have a strange urge to get some Eldar, guardians, some HQ, or swooping hawks, just something that kicks ass...wraithlord:evilgrin:? On the otherhand I need a Chaos Vindicator and some Chaos Havocs eventually...what do you guys/things think? What should I get?

15-07-2008, 23:30
Crap, sorry I forgot to post these pictures...sorry mods:(. This is my entire Chaos Marine Army, my main collection of models and my love for playing:




As you can see I don't paint much...

There's two more for the next two people who actually post and talk and stuff...

Yeah, wraithlords are crazy sweet, but I'm turning to da orks actually. Maybe I'll start a army... Oh, and the cookie, I lied.:D I don't think the mods would like 3 half page cookies...but you can share with Sword of Glory!

06-08-2008, 22:56
Hey everyone! I ACTUALLY DID SOMETHING!!!:eek: It's that time! Updates!

It's been a while, with summer in all but I've started Imperial Fists and actually was working on some, so here's some pics, the painted one isn't finished yet, but I hope to finish him tomarrow or possibly the next day. Oh yes and I've got Command and Conquer 3: Tiberian Wars, which is awesome for my birthday on the 11th!!! Anyway, here is pics, not the most amazing but they will get better through this week:


And some un-painted yet pretty cool guys:


How do they look? C&C welcomed.

07-08-2008, 17:52
nom nom nom, cookie
'tis a lovely shade of yellow you have, it's looking good, although I think you've missed a mould line on the painted guy's arm

07-08-2008, 21:03
I know, I seem to be cursed by mould lines, I cut most of em but I've gotten lazy...Anyway I've painted the gun and chest eagle, as well as most of the vents. Right now I'm pondering on what to highlight the shoulder pads with and what color to use for their eyes...

08-08-2008, 14:48

MOAR UPDATES!!! I may be going to Adepticon this year and I think I'll try and have 2k of fists by April 3rd made and painted! My camera's on the fritz so most of the pics I took didn't turn out well, hopefully it'll start working better later. I still need a color for the eyes, and I was thinking for the joints where there is no plating, I'd paint metal and then black ink it? I dunno what do you guys think here are the pics so far:
