Thanks, erm...I dunno, seemed cool...cherubs would've worked too...but it looks good in my eyes, so it stays.

Finished the cloaks on the Marines btw.

Are those wormy things bloodcrushers? Cause that's awesome if so. If they're khorne spawn, that's also awesome. The hellcannon is also a nice scratch-attak.

Sorry, not an Empire bloke...it's a Marauder. I won 3rd place in a Empire painting competition and I won two old detachment boxes. So I figured, Marauders as for the handgunners...DoW crossbowmen...

(I think I'll post a pic of the comp. winning model...)

P.s. the Spawns are from Hasbro's Dungeons & Dragons board game...they are called...Carrion Crawlers or something like that...

Comments people!

Anyway a fairly small update:

I won the painting competition and got the old Master of the Ravenwing Landspeeder (also some fame and glory), and I made this out of it: (still WIP)

http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n204/Ventris_Fellstorm/landspeeder.jpg
Counts as a normal Landspeeder Tornado.

Nothing more...but comments!:D

To be honest, I'm not keen on the position of the guns.

They really hamper the aerodynamics and would be difficult to aim as well. Sorry!

I like the Kroot concept sketches though.

:eek: Woops!:eek: Seems like I missed some updating! *slaps himself in the face for not checking all subscribed threads*

Sorry Ventris, but I guess you managed to win the painting competition even without me wishing you luck;) .

I think you did some good painting on the Empire dude and the Dark Angel, especially the plume on the former and the power sword on the latter. And a pat on the back for making concept sketches for your Kroot, very professional! Btw the tubes going into their armpits are not so over the top, they carry over a Borg-style wired feel which sounds good, IMO.

As for the Speeder I agree with Catferret it doesn't look very practical, but if you find coolness more important than practical use (kinda like Space Marines themselves), it's ok. You could also go for a compromise and slap them on the same way as the Typhoon missile launchers.

And some congrats on winning the painting competition!:)

Cheers! I got the idea for placing the guns from Jak 3 and I will be adding stuff to them to make them look as if they were automated. The Heavy bolter will be on the bottom and both of the Marines will have a see-through-computer-screen-thingys and I'll make a control panel for the other Marine too. If it still doesn't fit, I'll take 'em off.

Good work, I really like the jumping one, he looks like he's about to thrust his chainsword through someone's gut. The twin-bladed marine is cool, too. The techmarine looks suitably tooled up, though he must have an insane hernia carrying all those servo-arms on top of his jump pack (ah well, he's a space marine after all).

Keep it up!

I agree with you 100% (NOTE: the twin bladed one has a plasma pistol mounted on his shoulder, and the jumping one has a grenade. Just some details if you missed them) and yes he is a Space Marine after all :rolleyes:

I finished their names too:

Techmarine is henceforth: Aspertine
And the Sergeant: Sgt. Clavus

I'm also pleased to say that the Master in Terminator armour -to be named: Mathael "Justice" Ruest- is almost finished too: (I know the pics are crappy, but I swear that cameras hate minis)

It's a shame your camera hates you!

I can just about make out the painting on the sword and it looks cool. :)

There is something strange about the powerfist arm though. I think it's too long maybe. It could just be the angle of the picture though.

Okay...sorry for not having updates for awhile, but I was in England and couldn't get any updates posted. I also visited the GW in Norwich and bought some paints (Ice blue, Snot Green, Snakebite Leather & Vomit Brown) and snow flock (cocaine). I happy to see a game going on in the GW, 8'x8' swamp world. Good vs Bad. Objective: Hold as many of the artifacts as possible. Scenario: As many Fast Attacks as possible into 500 pts.

I didn't have an army so I got to use 6 Fire Dragons and a Falcon. I was on the side of the baddies and I got to kill a lot of Termies. Eventually we lost.
2-1, they had two we had one...


Anyway, I've almost finished the Master, Whirlwind and I've finished the one model I'm going to send to a painting competition called: "Golden Goblin". It's a Grey Knight Justicar painted in the colours of my army, I'm pleased of it. I'll post pics when I get batteries for my camera. Which would be soon.


Out :D

That reminds me...the band I play in is in need of a name as well...how does "Bejazzled" sound? Anyway, not important, what IS important, is this awesome stuff here. I love that master model, really custodian, and the always-good-looking "Neo" pose, with the gesturing finger;) .

with the empire clothing but chaotic weapons and shields, plus blood they look vampiric. still very nice, cool unit, different than the S&M viking marauders. adds a bit of variety, lots of units of marauders soon loot a bit same-y, so yes, i'm impressed.

as for painting eyes- i can't either, i only bother with orks, orcs and goblins, so i wouldn't be too worried. not many people can paint eyes well.

It's not that, I mean I can paint eyes well, but I got too much paint on my brush accidentely, cause my Skull White is kinda at the point where you can't see when the brush hits the paint, if you know what I mean...

Small update, no minis sorry. I've caught some virus now and haven't been able to get anything done. But now that it has turned down a notch, I was able to participate in Helsinki Fanatic -07 with me Fb Khorne.

Matches today:

1st Khorne vs. Tzeentch =19 to 1 loss

2nd Khorne vs. Orcs & Goblins =17 to 3 win

3rd Khorne vs. Khorne =20 to 0 loss

Okay...ummm...that...ummm...SUCKED! But in all fairness it is my first tournament ever. Tomorrow is a new day with two more games to win/lose:rolleyes: .

P.s. still, what should I do with the Handgunners?

Yeah thanks mate. I was thinking of probably a DoW unit or sellin' 'em.

But the rest of the games:

Game 4: Khorne vs. Undivided =20 to 0 win
Game 5: Khorne vs. Skaven =18 to 0 loss (too many of 'em)

I got to place 51 out of 76, which is better then I expected. I got 27 painting points and I'm quite dissapointed with it, seeing as just as the guy came to look at it I had deployed my best painted unit behind a hill, so he didn't see it and my Lord's sword fell off which also gave me minus points. Next time I'll participate Fanatic with my Marines, cause I'm a 40k player originally and I enjoy it more.

Updates...ummm...soon...hopefully...promise!:D

Small update:
(I will post pics later today, when I get batteries to my camera)

I've been at my Goblins today, putting them together, coverting them, but not painting...no painting today. Then I came up with a cool idea (in my opinion atleast), I drew a concept sketch and tryed it out on the Flash-Marine-Painter and this is the outcome: (sorry for the messyness, but you get the idea)
http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n204/Ventris_Fellstorm/T.jpg
These guys used to be Death Guard, before the Death Guard turned their back on the Emperor, now they make up a small minority called "The Brothers of Barbarus" (or should it be "The Sons of Barbarus", which one?). They were thought to be heretics by both the loyalists and chaos, which caused them to decrease in size. Now they are in hiding trying to gain their strength and numbers in order to fight against the Death Guard and prove that they are loyal to the Emperor and the Emperor only. Last time they were seen was at Medusa V, and after it's destruction it was thought they died with it. Nobody knows...

+++Imperial recording from the Fall of Medusa V+++
++From: The Spearhead, flagship of the Cadian 314th++
+Encrypted text only+

Today in the Nothern sector of Teolosia the men of the 314th encountered an ancient foe. The survivors claimed that they saw skull masked Astartes which lacked the normal features that Chaos Space Marines carry, which would make them fellow Astartes Battle Brothers, but the survivors had said that they carried massive scythes with them, Manreapers, the sole mark that makes a Death Guard. The mystery Astartes were fired upon, and until one of them fell, they didn't fight back, but when an Astartes died, they slaughtered all but a few, who hid themselves in the bushes nearby. These Astartes are dangerous, we have no idea of what they are and who do they owe allegiance to. These mystery Astartes must be put under inspection immediately, but with caution.

Governor Clavus Velipov.

+++End of recording+++

I will be adding pics of the Gobbos and the concepts for "The Brothers/Sons of Barbarus" later today...:D

:eek: That thing is insane! My bets are NOT on the Chaplain!

Anyway, great work on the concepts of your Space Marines. Reading through your fluff I'd say Sons of Barbarus because this a) underlines the fact that they stand apart from the Death Guard (who are the real traitors, so no "brothers" of your Marines) and b) underlines their loyalty (they are the true sons of the once loyal planet of Barbarus, other than their chaos brethren). That's just my thoughts on the subject.

Other than that I like the scheme you have in mind, although the symbol seems a bit difficult to paint to me. Good luck with it!

Keep it up, mate.:)

Cheers! In the game against that thing, on the first turn it killed 10 Marines hiding in the woods, with an AP3 flamer. DAMN! But I managed to take out 3 shields and I got it to move only 1" per turn, the Chaplain went into closecombat with it and took off one shield and ran away, next time he got killed.

Anyway, I'll see how the symbol will go, and yes deffinetely "The Sons of Barbarus" better ring to it:D and what you said.

I have to say that i like the idea for the marines. There like the Soul Drinkers, there fight for the Emperor but everyone thinks there evil.

On the Titan note we had a big battle which was Space Marines and guard v 'Nids and my Friend (nickname Hawkeye) took down not only the shields but also the Titan itself with 2 Biovores!!!! He has also taken down Land Raiders and the sort with them. He never misses which is why we call him HawkEye

But yeah i love the marine idea

Cheers, Soul Drinkers eh? Cool.

But the thing about my Titan battle was that I had a Landraider and the rest was infantry, which was all together about 1,000pts. I had 5 missile launchers, and the Landraider which were the only ones that could harm it +my Chaplain and his powerfist.

What the hell have I done?! I had to go and use my B-day present (20€ gift voucher to GW (real B-day tomorrow)) on Harlies! Why? Why? Why?...I really didn't think about the amount of work I still have but I did it anyway...ah well, I needed to practice painting Harlies anyway, so...

I got me a Shadowseer and two Harlies with Kisses. There was a problem though, which I didn't notice until I got home...there was a male & female Harlie, but two female legs...oh well! GS is the answer to everything, I'll just sculpt pants on 'im, I'll also sculpt a new hand for the Shadowseer.

Harlies:
http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n204/Ventris_Fellstorm/aupdate006.jpg

Since I've been so busy at school I haven't been able to do much, seeing as now I'll have to start paying attention at school, in order to get to highschool. But here's a few pics on my bikes:

http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n204/Ventris_Fellstorm/aupdate005.jpg
The bike squad also has a background story, like all my models (the cool ones that is). There's Sarge (yet to think of name) who is a diehard veteran, with a whole lot of wisdom to guide his squad into tactical position (usually reffered to as "Olde One"), don't let age fool you, he is a thousand times more deadly (smarter) than his younger Astartes brothers.
Then there's INSERT NAME HERE, he too is a veteran, but still lacking some skills that his Sergeant posseses. He is a bit of a joker, always making jokes, even in the worst of situations, just to keep up his Brothers' moral.
Last but not least: NAME HERE"Rookie"LAST NAME HERE. As his nickname suggests, he is the rookie of the group. He hasn't been an Astartes for long, yet a Astartes biker for that matter, and his bike allready is in far worse condition than those of his squad. He is a thrill seeking and competive man. But even thoúgh he has much to learn, Sarge chose him for his squad intetually, to show how things work and what to do and what not to. Ofcourse, there have been cases where the Rookie has done something stupid and was lucky to survive. He has a long way to go.

Sarge:
http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n204/Ventris_Fellstorm/aupdate007.jpg

Both veterans have a small "dragon wing" on the top of their backpacks, to show their higher rank.

Update comming soon(...hopefully). Sorry for the pics...

Nice work done there, I really like how Sarge is leaning to one side (possibly impaling a heretic), with his pimped-up trike-bike. Also nice to see a model with a Bike who is actually not driving at full-throttle.

I'd never even noticed there were male and female Harlies:o

http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n204/Ventris_Fellstorm/aupdate009.jpg

On the Harlie colour scheme, well because they're harlies, why not do them all? Although the red/blue one might be a bit too different from the other ones. GS work looks good from what I can tell from the pic (do you have Macro on your camera? Works a treat for me).

Keep up le good work!:)

Macro is a useful function on a digital camera which focuses on the nearest object, very handy when photographing minis up-close, since it prevents the camera from focusing on the background instead.

Again nice work on the models, just noticed the leaking intestines on the Gobbo's, love it!:D

Excellent work, only I wonder whether the blue fits in with the rest of the scheme. It doesn't seem very "custodes", if I'm honest. The blue on the data screens and all is okay, just the armour.

Your painting is improving with each and every model, so keep up the awesome work!:)

I agree...I'm going to switch it to green. Why? Because green is the opposite colour of red (which there is a lot of). Now the question: Dark or light green?

-:D

hiveminion
01-05-2007, 18:29
IF you're going for green make it very dark, as it fits with the rest of the scheme which is very dark as well. However, since they're custodes, why not do it dark red/scab red as well? Red, black and gold are the custodian colours, and although it's not very contrasting it's very Terran.

Yeah...black might be good on the bikes...if we were talking about the bikes...or were we talkin' about the guys behind the Landspeeder?

If the dudes behind the Landspeeder, they are that colour so that I can figure which Marines go in which squads...

YAY! I got the Eldar Army Deal from the "Biggest Army"-day and I've put together the Wraithlord, the Autarch, the Fire Dragons, the Dire Avenger Exarch, and the Howling Banshee Exarch, then I ran out of glue.

Well, I guess it depends on how you look at it...it is actually a Lascannon from a Landraider...nope, that's a lie. I just remembered that it was from a Predator.

As for the painting...my goal is to paint my best at the Eldar, so that they will be a bit better than the standard gaming standard...yeah, hope it works out.

I agree about the red ink, make sure the highlights stand out nicely though. Plumes like this one look really good with very dark shading and very light highlights, you can throw smooth transitions right out of the window.:)

Also personaly I never highlight the downside of cloaks and tabards, I know they're edges but remember that the 'real' edges on cloaks run vertically and not horizontally. Some food for thought!

Anyway I'm really loving how the Autarch is coming along, definitely one of my favorite minis of yours.:)

Looks great man, the armour is fantastic, your highlighting is really good. The yellow on the helmet looks a bit thick though.

Can't wait for more, I'm addicted to your stuff!

Ventris_Fellstorm
06-07-2007, 17:05
Cheers...yeah I know the situation of the helmet...I was painting those at my local GW and the Golden Yellow turned out like that...even though I watered it down...*shakes head* the paints they have at GW...damn academy students! :p

But yeah...no updates commin' this weekend, cuz I'm gonna go away to a rock...ummm...festival I guess it's called...two days away then...and I won't probably get anything done on Monday, so...Tuesday...meaning update either then or on Wednesday.

Oh damn! Sorry for the delay and min amount of pics, but I've been busy (75km bike ride and a Metallica concert, among with other stuff)

Anyway got started on the Harlies:
http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n204/Ventris_Fellstorm/IMGP0002-1.jpg

There will be Blue details and some other vibrant colours :D.

As for the Dragons...should I make the ends of the guns the same as every other gold piece? (mithril silver highlight like on the Autarch & Banshee)

Smooth orange there! As for the gold, I'd say do them the same. One thing I've learned from my space marines is that it's best to stick as much to a chosen palette of colour as you can. Of course with Eldar some units just need different colours (Aspects, Harlies), but for metal, eye lenses, plumes, etc. etc. it's best to use colours that are part of your original scheme. So the metal is done the same pretty much everywhere, while the plumes are mainly red, green or blue. This helps to keep the army consistent.

75 km? Sporty guy!:cool:

Cheers mate! And as for the 75km...I did the trip with three of my friends and I was unusually the last one most of the time...okay not most, but a lot of the time anyway:D. And I'm not even in bad shape compared to the others...ah well.

YAY! Update!

First off...things are gonna go slowly now (woopie-di-doo-daa), since we are finally gonna get to filming our movies (check website, if you haven't yet(newly updated) and since I got a Xbox 360 yesterday :D.

Anyway:

Harlies:

And Dragons:

What do you think?

I think you should throw the 360 out of the window and keep up the good progress.
Or you could give it to me.:p

Other than that, I think the blue suits the orange really well. I also think the highlights on the Fire Dragon guns are fantastic.
And I also think I should shut off my computer now as I'm really causing myself a headache.
Great work mate.:)

:D that sure was improvised!;) (the YouTube thing I mean) I'm really interested in the progress of your site, must check it out again when I'm back.

Harlies looks good mate, blue is a bit dark, don't be too afraid to make it look bright, they're Harlies!

I was actually gonna make it bright...don't worry, all I need to know is in what colours should I do the diamonds/stripes?

P.s. And yes, keep a steady lookout...we'll be adding a our first episode of Rob & Matt probably next month...filming in progress of "Nailing Powell"

Aaaaalright! We got ourselves an update ("YAY!"):

Put together some Dire Avengers:

The last FD of the three is almost done:

Harlies' masks almost done:

And a Khornic Champion (Malgorak be his name):
http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n204/Ventris_Fellstorm/IMGP0004-2.jpg

C&C is more than welcome, and I still need suggestions on the Harlie colours...

Wow, great poses on those Dire Avengers, love the one saluting! Half the awesomness of a model is in the pose, so you're fine there! (Shame the Eavy Metal team doesn't realise this).

Really like the look of that Champion as well. As for your Harlies, perhaps a light shade of pink for the blue? And maybe green for the red? As long as it's contrasting with the base colour you should be fine.:)

Can't say it enough: those Fire Dragons are amazing!

Cheers mate...actually he isn't saluting (I know, the angle of the pic makes it look as though he is)...now comes the question: Do Eldar have vox? (sure they do, but just askin'...he is on the vox).

True about the posing thing...'Eavy Metal really should put some effort into that...

Pink sure, but I've been warned that I shouldn't use red & green patterns on Harlies...said it don't work, but I'll try and see how it works out.

Keep it up!

I'm really really sorry for the delays, but I've been busy (school, other stuff not having a proper paintbrush/paint), but now I've gotten myself a new brush and new paints. I think it will still be abit slow, but I'll try and get stuff done on the weekends.

Exalted Champion of Khorne:

Wow he's coming along great! Can't wait to see the finished model! I know it's a bit late but how about doing the mouth piece gold instead of bone? I think it would make it stand out more to give the model some extra awesomness. The skulls are particularly good.

Keep on trucking!:)

The whole idea was to make it bone...and since my Lord has the same helmet and with gold...you get the idea;). And I just thought it would be fitting...Khorne character=skulls...lots of 'em...why not have his armour decorated with bone...just need to shade it a bit...
