Looking forward to seeing them as they progress, there's a hell of a lot to get through there though. I thought my Guard army was piling up but that list makes it look small :D

30-05-2007, 15:15
lol, cheers... its not as much as it looks though... lots of it is just single model entries... :)

30-05-2007, 18:33
Well here we go… I’ve got a nice collection of pics here… just a tantilising glance of what I need to paint…

First off, my Tyranids… here’s some I’ve finished, just to get an idea of the Colour Scheme…

And a few unpained ones… the Warrior is going to have a head swap and become a Lictor, and the Carnifex still needs an arm before I can paint him… oh, and the ripper swarm is made of Adrenal Glands…

Here is the Chapter Master for my Chaplain-heavy Space Marine Army, The Lost Legion… he still needs work

And my Chaplains… yeah, I’ve only got 5...

30-05-2007, 18:33
Here’s some more of the Lost Legion… from Left to Right…

Comopany Banner Bearer, Venerable Dreadnought, Apothecary, Terminator Sergeant

Techmarine, Sergeant, Melta-gunner, Company Champion

Just a quick look at each of the individual units from my Doom 3 army that still need painting… I also have Commandos and Mancubi… from left to right: Zombie, Revenant, Wraith, Trite Swarm, Armoured Zombie, Imp, Vulgar

And my Feral Marine Command Squad

30-05-2007, 18:34
Now for my Lords of Chaos, one for each legion… from left-to-right:

Death Guard, Night Lords, Thousand Sons

Emperor’s Children, Word Bearers, Alpha Legion

Iron Warriors, BlackLegion, World Eaters

And my Iron Warriors Daemon Prince WIP

30-05-2007, 19:05
Very nice stuff! I'm locking forward to seeing that iron warriors deamon prince finished:D

30-05-2007, 19:12
cheers :D... I need a better pic of the Prince... the one above is kinda looking up at him... you can't see his face properly, or the spikes on his back... I still need to work out what I'm doing with the legs... I'm beginning to lean towards bulking them out a bit and them making em furry... He's also gonna have Dreadlocks :evilgrin:

Oh and the list of what to do doesn't include my roughly 5,000 pts of Chaos... I'll need to count those up once I've worked out a scheme...

Warwolt the skaven
30-05-2007, 20:07
Yeah, that daemon prince looks terrefic! Nice to see one hobbyist's take on different legions. Makes me wanna make just leader's to the legions :D

31-05-2007, 08:34
got to agree doing the different ones really highlights the different styles, can't wait to see them painted!

31-05-2007, 10:40
Cheers guys... I'll probably finish the WE one and paint another when I've finished my Nids...

31-05-2007, 14:22
Hey! Woo… first update! I finished my Shooty fex now… so that’s one less thing to do…


Close up of the armoured chest and regenerating head
(I think I got something on his teeth)

Also, here’s my Lictor that used to be my Warrior

31-05-2007, 20:49
... O.o I think a small choir just started vocalising in my head all at once. aaaaaaaaaaahhh, and so on. anyway, I love the lost legion. YOU GOTTA TELL ME (INDEED US) HOW TO MAKE THAT VENNY DREADNOUGHT! VENNY! PS! YOU TOTALLY STOLE THAT SHOOTY 'FEX IDEA FROM ME!!! NICE HEAD, THOUGH!

31-05-2007, 22:09
The dread? Tis just a Terminator chest plater with a chaos warrior head...

And how the ********** hell did I steal that idea from you?!? It's all mine!!

P.S. when I finish things I'll be editing the list in the second post... and I'm unsure on what to do with the Chaos Marine... I'v decided on a mid-tone grey as the main colour but can't decide what next... Black shoulder pads? Black lining? Metallics? I'll be using Red, Green, Purple and Yellow to show Marked models, so thos are out of it... and pink n blue aren't really doing it for me... what do you guys think?

01-06-2007, 10:08
meh... I think this was before I saw your fex... i've had it quite a while... just never painted it...

but its not boney colour... I like the gun thing, so yeah I'll do that... and after starting the mini last night (pics later) I can say that I will do the lining black :D, but not like the Aliens...

thats a completely different army... and whats with the boohissboo?

01-06-2007, 13:14
Boohissboo: Adjective. a description of something disliked, usually the use of a word.

What will be the main colour you do paint the legions, then?

01-06-2007, 13:22
You mean the Lords? erp...

Black Legion - Black, no metals... maybe some white
Alpha Legion - Greeny-blue and silver
Iron Warriors - Silver (duh)
Night lords - Blue n Red
Word Bearers - Shiny Red... like my ones
Thousand Sons - Black and Yellow
World Eaters - Just look at the picture
Emperor's Children - Black and Purple
Death Guard - Nurgley colours...

01-06-2007, 18:10
Ah, no, I thought you meant the "Tid" *spits* legions. But the lords are great, y'all. Like many of mercy's models, I've seen them, and they are rather fantastic.

01-06-2007, 19:16
What? Who? oh its you again... you and your youiness.... you!! lol

You know, this conversation has nothing to do with anything... and why the sudden hate of Cerotid?

03-06-2007, 21:53
It doesn't matter, it's just the name. anyway, I would have thought cerotid would be part of "everything", that's all. So now that that's cleared up, which thing are you doing first in your almighty list?

03-06-2007, 22:13
I'm really digging the CSM conversions and the paint scheme for the Lost Legion. The freehand on that banner is great!

03-06-2007, 22:17
Amazing stuff, very much looking towards all of the CSM stuff.
But..But..But... Ending you're Alien army... :mad: :( :cries: :cries:

10-06-2007, 14:50
chhers guys... no! I'm not ending the Alien army... I'm just bringing the Log to an end as the Queen is all thats left... I might revive it in September when I get more nids... I wont be buying much until then... or anything really...

I've been a bad boy... I haven't done anything all week... first I was up my dads on Friday, saturday and sunday, then I had an exam on moday, after which I went round my mates house and ended up not getting home until 7pm the next day... and then on wednesday was another exam, then on Thursday I was down at GW, got a lil painting done them... I have no excuse for Friday (unless dying my hair counts) and yesterday was my friends b-day party... I'll get some pics of my so fars in a minute...

10-06-2007, 14:57
you girly. Anyway, Will you do anything for the fallen? you've done all the other chaos legions, and they're basically one... or half of one... anyway, you know they're cool, go ooon...

10-06-2007, 15:00
Here we go... some updates... My Lictor so far... just done the skin and blacked in everything else... I'm going to blend the flesh into black where it meets the chitin and then add some brown mottling on his shoulders and upper legs to make him look more camo but not...


you'll also notice one of the culprits of my lack of work in the background...

and here's my CSM colour scheme so far... still need to grey the backpack and his left hand... then I highlight and do everything else... I'm thinking green eyes...


I'm also writing a story about fairies as well... so thats keeping me busy... yes fairies... dont look at me like that!

@ Trilby: I did Cypher... s'at good nuf?

10-06-2007, 15:18
Is that all you've got? Fairies? Bah!

EDIT: yes I won him... hahaha!!! I just wanted to do the 9 legions cos people know those... not everyone knows the Fallen... besides, I'm broke so cant be bothered to do another convertion... though I do have some spare bits... give him a back pack? damn you Trilby!! you know conerting is my weakness!!


10-06-2007, 15:22
Bah indeed, mercy. Bah Indeed. now shut up, lest I pop a bah in yow ass. Loc is "THE LEGIONS OF CEROTID" and what the HELL does "conerting" mean? if you mean conveting, then you've come to the rght guy, hehehe...

10-06-2007, 15:30
oh right... no thats not the scheme! Theres no marines in the Legion... its all daemons... not sure how the colours are gonna be yet...

and im yet to see a proper convertion from you...

10-06-2007, 15:36
Hey, at least I'm original. I convert all of my models, I just realise the quality of the miniatures already. also, I don't have to make a hammer look sick to make it cool. You can't even SPELL it right. what would you consider to be a "proper" conversion, o master of the snide?

What are those marines for, then?

10-06-2007, 15:39
no... what I meant was I've only seen normal models from you... oh, you're libby biker... not really much convertion there though... reposing and some swaps... where's the cutting, pinning and Green Stuff?

and did you just call me a sister of battle?

10-06-2007, 15:44
In a manner of speaking, yes. and no. anyway, I have cut models! that's practically all I do, the "libby" was the exception, bro. anyway, green stuff Isn't really all-important, matey. may I remind you of my floaty nurgle lord?

10-06-2007, 15:47
He didn't have any legs!!

10-06-2007, 15:51
He Floats! Why Would He Need Legs!?!?!?! And, I couldn't Find Any, Shut Up! It's a good converSION! Note the "S"!

10-06-2007, 15:55
and you say im silly... you're using an S... be original!!

yeah but... he doesn't even have like stumps... its just a torso...

10-06-2007, 15:58
Which looks Cool! He's floating on a cloud of Plague! PLAGUE, DAMMIT! I'm Really Surprised I'm still a veteran sergeant!

10-06-2007, 16:31
you need 200 to get Chappy... anyway... back on topic...

10-06-2007, 16:38
This is my pet snack... she died recently... its her fault for being all chocolatey and fill with marshmallow!!

10-06-2007, 16:51
Wow, on first glance I thought that was a big **** with creme filling. What relevence does it have to your modelling? :p

I like the lictor so far, what do you have planned for the base?


10-06-2007, 16:54
I have no plans for the base beyond that of the rest of the army... I'm not a big fan of those scenic bases on things which aren't monsters... and even then it's a bit much...

The cake has no relevance... it just got us off that other subject that was going nowhere...

10-06-2007, 19:27
Yeah, so much for back on topic. Anyway, Why did you just convert a warrior? It's too chunky, I would have made a better one :P.

PS: what is that snack? I want one!

10-06-2007, 20:04
you cant have one... you have insulted my honour!

11-06-2007, 17:41
yeah, mate. That was something of a bitch-fest. Anyway, to pastures niddy, what will you do next?

11-06-2007, 18:34
more nids... assuming I ever get back to the painting table...

12-06-2007, 21:52
Yeah, I know the feelin'. Hehe, anyway, Another carnifex should be right up your street. G'wooon, ya know you want to...

13-06-2007, 13:56
I've got one more (check second post)... but it still needs an arm... which I don't have... so when I've bought everything I want from nearby I'll take a trip to bwbits...

13-06-2007, 14:07
:p Love the chocolate coloured Eldar Mask! How did you do that?

13-06-2007, 15:18
Through years of practice :wtf: you were up all night thinking of that. Weren't you? :P

15-06-2007, 13:42
Finally! A proper update… two things… three actually… Nearly done the Lictor, just need to highlight the carapace colouration and tentacles, then I can do the base and is finished…


And a close up of the mottling on the right leg…

Also made a start on the flying warriors

And a back-shot…

More coming…

15-06-2007, 13:43
I have now finished the Fallen guy… Trilby’s sick idea of a twisted joke on me… I will get revenge somehow…

He’s big!

I changed my mind last night… removed all the Dark Angelesque iconography and am now using him as a Chaos Lord in my army… up yours Trilby!!!

15-06-2007, 16:59
the libby looks great, i like that he's larger than the average marine

15-06-2007, 17:10
cheers... cept there is no Libby :D

16-06-2007, 21:57
Aaaah, COOOL!!!! Consider that Jump-pack stolen! Anyway, you know, You have to bring those niddulates to mah crib, bro. Mainly so I can crush them utterly, but also to marvel at the wing-sheen.

How Precisely Is you making a Fallen my sick Idea of a twisted joke on you?!?! By the way, Jackass jerk boy, MY fallen have better fluff than your one. Also, when it concerns me, revenge is veery veeeery hard to come by. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA!!!!!

17-06-2007, 09:20
1) because I can't turn down a conversion opportunity (cos its fun)

2) better fluff? What!?! They already have fluff!

3) I'm not familiar with vevenge...

17-06-2007, 19:40
He's talking about the snack

18-06-2007, 13:24
Well, the Lictor is finally finished (no idea why it took so long) and I'm now onto finishing the winged warriors... I will have a picture of the Lictor later, for now I can't find the camera... probably has no space anyway...

18-06-2007, 14:55
Time for a proper update!! Lictor - finished - one more thing off my list :D happy days!


25-06-2007, 11:19
Well... erm... sorry to say I haven't done much of anything since my last update... I've almost finished the flying warriors carapces... but thats about it for painting... I've been kept busy with my Nemesis Crown army and my goal of gaining two levels a day on Warcraft...

But i can tell you that I went digging yesterday... and found a gold mine!! probably about 50% of all my chaos army AND another Turanid warrior AND that arm I needed for my Carnifex... so without further ado... here's what I got for my chaos from one box o' stuff...

[[List removed - see below]]

I also have plans (caused by the hubub of the new chaos) for a massive all chaos project... this will include getting at least one of every new thing... painting all my exisiting chaos stuff in the new scheme... making some special conversions (including a ghost rider style biker lord of Slaanesh)... and, what will hopefully be a great centre-piece... SCTRATCH-BUILT CHAOS WARHOUND!!!

EDIT: Just got out the rest of the chaos stuff and counted it all up... so here is the complete list (though I think there's some raptors missing...

01-07-2007, 12:20
well would you look at that... almost a whole week since my last update... I'm so bad... and I haven't done all that much to show off... the warriors are still on the table waiting for a few more things to be done... the wings make it so hard to paint them with any kind of speed...

Also found an old rending claw... the exact part I needed for my cheapo carnie... so now he's done and awaiting painting... I also found another Tyranid Warrior in the same place... so thats another thing on my list :( oh well...

I've been busy with my Nemesis Crown army recently, but I promise that when I get home tonight I will paint the warriors... even if it means no Warcraft until tommorrow night :(

EDIT: I also worked on the composition of my standard Chaos Marines... I got rid of the unsaveables, either cos they were too broken, or all the detail had been lost to my days of super-lamo painting... So now I have 13 squads of 5 each with a champion and either an Icon or a Special Weapon (one of em has 4 lascannons though)... And there are 5 spare champions awaiting squads of their own... So when the new stuff comes out I will be getting 30 of the new chaos marines to get myself a full 100 marines... not including anything else of course... these are just standard Troop choice guys...

01-07-2007, 17:26
O.o Bloody hell. Not setting the bar too high or anything then? Anyway, that is so hypocritical it's laughable. hah. I thought you hated the new chaos codex? Nah, I don't really have a problem with it, but it's funny how things work out, eh?

01-07-2007, 18:09
I may dislike a number of the changes... but I have to find a way to deal with it...

04-07-2007, 17:09
So… basically… Chaos… and that’s what my army is at the moment… absolute chaos, no sense or order or colour scheme what so ever… my entire army (minus the defiler on my wondow sill (seel?)… is held within the bottom and top compartments of a Tyranid Battleforce box at the moment…


I know it doesn't look it, but theres a whole mess of almost 200 models in those boxes

Also, here’s the ‘Scale of Evil’ for anyone who wants to see how my colour scheming has progressed since I first started this army almost 5 years ago…


And just a look at the characters… Fabius’ armour had nothing to do with my word bearer scheme… it just sort of happened that way… I’m just happy to see how my painting has improved since these guys…


04-07-2007, 17:10
And a minor Nid update… almost done the warriors now… just need bleached bone on the carapace… then I can fill in the details as base them…


07-07-2007, 20:46
meh... update time... I guess...

I'm in a foul mood... can you blame me?

Anyways... I;ve done nothing to the Warriors from above... or my Nemesis Army...

I haven't even written any more of my story... What have I been doing?

Creating Daemons... Daemon to be precise... down at GW, we dubbed him 'Fluffy'


He's a test model for my Generic Daemons for the new codex... and I like him...

10-07-2007, 08:54
Hurray! Finally finished the Warriors!!

((Edit: I should've gone in a little closer here... oh well...))


I suppose I'll go on to do the Troops next...

12-07-2007, 19:51
As I hate to go too long without an update... here's an update (without pics)... This log will be moving faster now that I've given up on Fantasy (again)... But I'll be taking a break from my list on page 1, to try and paint my Chaos from this page... I'll be back in a short while with a condensed form of the above list... I've almost finished my test-scheme and I like it so far...

12-07-2007, 20:07
HQ - 10
2 Daemon Princes
Raptor Lord
Biker Lord
3 Lieutenants - 1 Khorne
3 Specials - Ahriman, Fabius, Cypher

Elites - 28
18 Possessed - 2 Champions
3 Obliterators
6 Chosen - 1 Heavy, 1 Special
1 Terminator

Troops - 131
66 Chaos Marines - 3 Heavies, 10 Special, 2 Icons, 17 Champions
1 Rhino
4 Khorne Berzerkers
15 Plague Marines - 2 Champions
1 Noise Marine Champion
9 Thousand Sons - 1 Sorceror
20 Cultists - 1 Icon, 1 Champion
10 Mutants - 1 Heavy, 1 Special, 1 Boss
1 Generic Daemon
4 Familiars

Fast Attack - 17
4 Bikers - 2 Specials, 1 Champion
16 Raptors - 5 Special, 3 Champions
1 Sentinel

Heavy Support - 10
5 Havocs - 4 Lascannons
1 Dreadnought
2 Predators
1 Land Raider
1 Defiler

So that’s a very happy 196 models all together… and I still need at least 30 Stanard Marines… But I also want a few more Rhinos and a Warhound… Also want all the new chaos stuff… And 1 more Havoc Squad…

12-07-2007, 21:50
wooo. I bet you also hate nobody posting for too long, eh? ;) anyway, I bet most space marine models of the same points cost to those warriors would beat them. Specifically: mine. MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!!

12-07-2007, 22:06
yeah... probably right... I'm gonna go measure up the Warhound...

12-07-2007, 22:24
I just gotta ask.. how come your posts seem, i dunno, emo? u sad mercy? :o

13-07-2007, 08:51
No, not sad... I'm an emo... ok, I'm not... but I do get described as one a lot and have similarities... Most my mates just think of me as gothic emo, even though I'm not emo!!

Here's some chaosy updates... started the Warhounds head... looks crap...


And a couple of bitz box familiars... I wanted them to have a sort of clockwork toy look... I like that...


13-07-2007, 11:08
Aaaah, but then we are the same :D Chaos is the shiet btw^^

13-07-2007, 12:42
The same is always the good... Is that you in your Avvie or just a random person?

14-07-2007, 21:06
Well here’s an update for ya’ll… finished my test marine… yes, shoddy highlights…but this scheme is about speed… I’ll take more time on characters and stuff…


And the whole army in its chaotic rainbow glory…


14-07-2007, 21:42
The same is always the good... Is that you in your Avvie or just a random person?

Nope, but i did use to look like that from to time ^^

14-07-2007, 21:44
hehe... lol... not bad...

14-07-2007, 22:12
I'm definitely a fan of the black-n-white chaos marine, though I feel he needs a different color in his eyes, a burning bale-fire of some sort or something.

20-07-2007, 16:01
I've given him green eyes since that pic was taken... I've also started work on the rest of his squad... two of them have the grey done (baring the fine highlight), one of them has a base coat... and the last one still needs an undercoat... I've also done most of the grey on 1 of the predators and have started the black filling

22-07-2007, 12:59
Well, time for another none pitured update (cameras out of batteries... charging at the moment)... I've not done much recently because of the addiction of Warcraft that has swept over me... But today ive been forced to take a break (day of the bloody guild meeting as well)...

But anyway, this has left me open to doing other things... such as working out the points cost of all my Chaos Marines together... working on the titan... rumagin through my bits box until I find enough parts to make a whole model... so here's what I've done...

1) I've created 2/4 familiars based off of the DoW Chaos Building Units... just some ghouls with zombie arms and mutated heads + some spikes...

2) I did a wee bit of painting... really not all that much...

3) Found parts to make another plastic Raptor, a la Assault Marine style...

and 4) Made some more progress on the Warhound's head... apart from the lower jaw the basic structure is complete... it just needs the decoration...

I dont know why im bothering to update this... no one replies... hence no motivation for me... is the bland colour scheme throwing people off?

Oh yeah... that Tyranid Warrior I started... blacked the carapce yesterday... ill do more later...

22-07-2007, 14:56
Well… Finally got some pics n stuff… what you think? Lol… erm…

Heres a close up of the marines eyes…

And the DoW style familiar… looks terrible now that I think about it… heads too big, arms are all bad…

Pics of the Titans head and jaw so far… still need to do the other side of the jaw and then join them together so they’re a perfect fit in the top half…

22-07-2007, 14:57
Here’s a look at how big the head is compared to a normal marine… its not the same a s atitan head… but its got that sort of shape… the edges are just simpler…

Here’s a look at the viewing port thing… or ‘The Hole’© as I call it…

And finally the Decoration so far… its going to become more mutated and chaotic later on… this is just as a guide at the moment…

22-07-2007, 15:24
Copied and pasted the above pic into flash, and 5 minutes later had this...


...Would've been done sooner but the mouse is dodgy...

22-07-2007, 23:37
Heeeey cooolio! you paint like me :D

22-07-2007, 23:40
if grey is your main color, then your black highlights shouldn't use the same color, try a 50/50 mix of bleached bone and chaos black.

23-07-2007, 11:48
Heeeey cooolio! you paint like me :D

I do? neat :D lol

if grey is your main color, then your black highlights shouldn't use the same color, try a 50/50 mix of bleached bone and chaos black.

Wouldnt that just produce the same colour? I sort of messed the highlights on that guy... so if you can bear with me till ive produeced something non-stupid-lookin...

23-07-2007, 13:12
Its not chaos for once!

Just finished the last of the Tyranid Warriors... now all I need to do is 24 Troops and a Carnifex!!


I'm no longer counting the rippers as the only ones left to paint are not complete units...

27-07-2007, 14:23
I'm not really making this easier for myself, just bought a box of Emperor's Children... Made 5 into a Noise Marine squad to go with the lonely champion and get that magic number... The other 3 became a raptor and 2 possessed...

27-07-2007, 14:42
Noise marines=Love :D will they be pink-ish?

27-07-2007, 16:07
They will not... they will have all black armour with purple trim and weapons... I'm using my idea for marked (but not cult) units to tie into the proper cult units...

Marked units will have 1 shoulder pad (the left pad, which will be blank) painted black with a god specific trim colour; Purple-Slaanesh, Red-Khorne, Green-Nurgle and Yellow-Tzeentch...

So I'm going to carry that idea over to the Cult units and make them all black, with the god-specific trim, should add a bit of colour as well...

Also, here's a shot of the head of the Champion I'm working on, I wanted to keep it all bland, so I made the skin kinda greyish to tie it in... it reminds me of Bizarro from Superman... I also like how the eyes came out :D enjoy,


01-08-2007, 13:21
Well... nothing's happening here... may as well update...

I'm well on my way to a whole squad of finished guys (yes! A whole 5 men! Astounding)... I've finished 3, am half way through the 4th, and the 5th isn't even primed... hurray...

So without further ado... here's what I've finished so far...
Yes, the bases are black... is it just me or is there some kind of taboo against greyscale models? I quite like em...

I've also started work on an obliterator... mainly to test the idea I had for daemonic skin... it came out slightly different to how I expected... too light, but thats drybrushing for ya :D

Its actually quite startling how nice the grey looks aginst black on the larger models (see his legs)... yes, shiny skin... and for all you wingers its not just black to grey... its rotting flesh... :D enjoy

P.S. like I said, I only finished 3 models... hence why mr oblity isnt done yet...

EDIT: yes, the highlighting on that obliterator is bloody awful... wot you gonna do about it, lol...

02-08-2007, 20:54
No replies? Suppose I should have seen this coming... oh well...

I'll just log for myself then... bought some Arcane Ruins today, and am putting them to good use on the Warhound... He's also going to have a summoning circle type whatever on his back using a Cauldron of Blood (yeah, original)...

But the two priests doing summoning will be based on the two robed figures on the sides of some of the cityfight buildings... I'll be using the Empire Wizards for that, that will also give me the flaming skull I need for the Ghost Rider Lord of Slaanesh...

03-08-2007, 00:07
I don't know whether I like the idea of a ghost rider lord of slaanesh or tzeentch better... either way, I like the titan ideas.

03-08-2007, 11:34
Cheers... I mainly went with Slaanesh due to the chains and what not... more kinky...

I'll also be having pics of the Warhounds back up soon... its nothing special yet... I still need to go out and get some more plasticard and Milliput... and some thicker chain...

04-08-2007, 13:36
Anyone else see that episode of Robot Chicken with the Apocalypse Ponies? That was ********** awesome!!! "and i'm DEATH PONY!!!"

anyway, here its time for THE WARHOUND!!!

This is the Warhound's carapace so far... there is going to be a cauldron of blood under the scythes (seen in next pic) and a pair of wizardy-type-cultist-dudes at the back... they will be removable so that I can put models up there cos its cool...

I dont know if you can see the little red cross under the scythes, but thats where the cauldron will go...
The priests will be standinmg just South of the skull in the middle...

Just another shot of the head, I've added a set of teeth coming up from the lower jaw at the front...

And this is what I have of the torso so far... dont panic about the bits of sprue on top... they won't be visible by the end...

04-08-2007, 14:01
Dude.. KOOOOOL! With a big "K"! You sir, are the r0xx0r! (excuse the bad language)

04-08-2007, 14:06
s'okay... bad language is fun XD

I need to get me some plastic tubing and more plasticard before I can continue though :(

Gonna have a giant daemonic autocannon with ammo feed as one of its weapons... Havent thought about the other one yet...

04-08-2007, 14:12
Bah! May as well show my soncept pics... its not for the entire titan, just bits and bobs...


04-08-2007, 14:28
For the other gun Im thinking something similar to the one on the FW warhound, but double barreled and with a giant chain-sword underneath, kinda like on Terminators...

04-08-2007, 17:56
Hmm. Nice. Who's bob? No but seriously, That warhound looks fraggin' awesome! To all you peeps out there, mercy's not an emo, he's a perfectionist :D. BTW, what's happening wtih cerotid? ought or nought?

04-08-2007, 20:01
nought for now... too busy getting my Apocalypse army ready... maybe another time eh?

gah! run out of money!! Need to wait for a while 'fore I can get on with the Titan... oh well...

I'm a perfectionist? I'm not an emo? Ill go halfsies with ya... im kinda half emo, though it dont show often and im not into it... and im not too much of a perfectionist, it depends on how easy the perfection is...

04-08-2007, 20:06
Did I mention I saw Transformers the other day? Best movie I've seen recently (only one that tops it this year is probably Pan's Labyrinth, but that was so long ago... back in February... what an odd set of feelings this brings back, I think i'll stop...)...

Back to the point (I'm sure its obvious), but I'm gonna convert a Defiler to stand on two legs, and I'm gonna call it 'Starscream'! That was the coolest name out of the lot...

I thinking of mashing a rhino kit and articulating the model so that it Transforms into a rhino and back again, but that may be too hard...

05-08-2007, 10:43
i could do it with a Land Raider... but then he would be all big and chunky... too chunky... maybe a vindicator? cos of the cannon? yes...

I dont think I'll do it... too hard... maybe another day...

05-08-2007, 16:29
Rhino idea might work, sounds cool atleast :D

05-08-2007, 17:53
maybe... but then the stupid thing probly wouldn't stand up... just sort of open with gravity and not do anything else... unless I magnetise it... hmm...

Next time I get a Defiler and Rhino I'll have a big think about what could be done with what... :D

nearly finished my first squad of dudes... then I think I'll paint my Icon of Khorne Champion... just to test the shoulder pad look...

Edit: ooh... new avvie... :D

05-08-2007, 20:19

Ooh, likes it? o.O You gots a new one too.. NICE! i got that picture too :D

06-08-2007, 16:09
lol, yeah... just did a random search on google and it came up... so I was like "score! Awesome pic!" lol...

Anyway... I found a nice big piece of plasticard under a pile of old school stuff that I got rid of now... its about the right size to go under the temple part, but doesn't spread enough to give the sides of the carapace, so i'm gonna cut it down and just glue it down the centre, then I can attach the torso and began work on getting the head in place...

Colonel Raijan
06-08-2007, 16:23
Nice, would be interesting to see your take on pre-heresy thousand sons.

06-08-2007, 16:28
Really? I'm interested now... may have to give it a go... lol :D

06-08-2007, 19:36
Just some work I did on the big guy yesterday...

Added some chain to the carapace...

and started green stuffing stuff on the head...

06-08-2007, 19:49
We really are quite alike, i too did the random search :D
But on topic: Nice stuff ^^

06-08-2007, 20:03
hehe, cool... random searches!!! :D

07-08-2007, 12:53
Grr... I have the over-powering feeling that as soon as I touch the finished Warhound its gonna break at every possible opportunity... must find some way to further reinforce it!!

07-08-2007, 13:44
Steel rods? o.O (alŠ exo-skeleton)

07-08-2007, 19:40
ooh... nmice idea... would kinda crush the model with the weight.. and i dont know where to get... and expensive... lol... I think GS and superglue wiill be fine for now, lol

07-08-2007, 22:38
That would be the problem yes.. unless you go the painful route and weld a skeleton that you would be building around and so on.. but that would be too much work i guess:(

But GS and superglue works well, i remember a friend of mine "fixing" his giant like that.. And then tried to break it, took him like a week or so of smashing :evilgrin:

08-08-2007, 12:13
lol, yeah I think its working...

Done a crap-load of work on the head last night... got the neck started and pretty much finished, connects into place perfectly... though I wont attach it yet... It still needs a lot of green stuffing and some plasticard round the other side...

08-08-2007, 12:28
Titan time!! Still not finished (obviously)

Here’s the carapace with the now attached torso… I also added some chains since the last pic…

(more on next page)

08-08-2007, 12:29
(More on last page)

And the head, with all the additions I mentioned earlier including a finished nostril…

08-08-2007, 12:35
And my Iron Warriors Daemon Prince WIP

I've changed my mind... he's now going to be a Khornate Daemon Prince... so there... :P

08-08-2007, 12:52
Still looks absolutely wierd, though. Kinda spindly for khorne, doncha think? Anyway, lovin' that titan head! it's lookin' kinda mumakoid. As in like a mumak. By the way, seeing that picture, I retract my previous comment... Merceus: 100% Emo.

08-08-2007, 13:18
Well its going to be bulkier... hence more khorne...

Mumak? It doesnt even have a trunk! lol..

emo... emo? EMO!?! JUST!!! JUST!!! Shh..

08-08-2007, 13:21
Well soooooorrrry! I wouldn't mind if you called me a glowing green monkey! Anyway! have you found anything to use as demon bullets for your autocannon yet? how about trash cans? :P

08-08-2007, 13:26
Trash cans? What? no! Im thinking (after looking at the FW warhound) of going back to the Stormboy jump pack idea...

08-08-2007, 13:29
Well, fair enough. You're gonna have to spend a Lotta money on this one. Are you sure you can afford it?

08-08-2007, 13:41
wont be so bad... only need like 15 at most... so that would be... £30... yeah, maybe I should find some plastic tubing or something...

08-08-2007, 13:59
Hey! Finished my first squad of chaos boys! woo!!


08-08-2007, 14:07
Chaos Marines=WIN :D Makes me wanna paint mine too..

08-08-2007, 14:44
Then do it.. paint them! paint them! lol

08-08-2007, 15:43
Hmm.. *paints*

08-08-2007, 15:58
i really like the monochromatic scheme on your chaos marines, i might suggest a quick wash of brown and black ink on the metallic parts to make them look less shiny and new.

08-08-2007, 16:52
cheers... I dont know.. the cleanness of the metal seems to suit (at least to my eye) as it goes with the cleanness of the white and the grey...

10-08-2007, 10:57
Started a squad of Plague Marines last night... and they're almost finished... I'm in shock... the grey came out a bit thicker then I would have liked, but oh well...


10-08-2007, 12:03
O. now thats creepy, thats veeeeeery much like my current army scheme :D although i highlight one more step with white :angel:

10-08-2007, 12:17
yeah... I like the creepy look... didnt expect it either...

hey! you changed your avatar again... lol...

10-08-2007, 22:37
Jus to say... im not at home this weekend... so no updates... but I have started the silver on the Plague Marines started... basecoated 4 and started a 5th...

I'm gonna be spending the weekend writing a disturbing, depressing book...

11-08-2007, 00:09
yeah... I like the creepy look... didnt expect it either...

hey! you changed your avatar again... lol...

I find that this perticular scheme goes quite nicely with white skin , looks veeeeeeery goth :D;)

Yup, can't really make my mind up.. the last one was me meself, and i didn't find it "all that" :( ill probably be changing a lot in the future ^^

11-08-2007, 12:01
yeah, im definately gonna be doin the skin very pale, not white... but the same way I did the skin on the Undivided champion...

lol, I've always wanted to see what a pic of myself as an avvie would look like, but I'm not very photogenic... meh, random internet pics will do me fine I s'pose...

11-08-2007, 13:17
I'd say it'll be quite nice^^
You could try? if you do it i will too (me curious) :angel::p

11-08-2007, 13:26
:wtf: but you've already done it... and I dont have any good pics of me... the one that pops to mind is me with really crappy braids that my friend put in there as a joke... but it looks so crap...

11-08-2007, 17:48
O.o creepy, but that was an old one, o gots one wiw da vampire look i was thinkin of^^

11-08-2007, 18:12
Braids? Creepy? I dunno... kinda lame lookin... vampire? I dare ya! Put it up!

So the forums were down for everyone then?

11-08-2007, 21:10
Did I mention I have now decided to give the titan a pair of Vulcan Mega-Bolters? At least at first, I'm thinking of making the guns interchangeable so that I can make more...

But seriously! two Vulcans is sick!!! 20 Rending shots!!!

14-08-2007, 11:28
Yay! The forum's not being a bitch anymore :D

Its titan time! I found a nice big chunk of Plasticard hidden under a pile of crap, so I’ve been able to get more work done on the Titan!

First off, here’s just a few shots of the Carapace/body in its state of near completion. Just need to add some more bits around the side and a couple of doors on top and its done!
As you can see I’ve also added the arms, but no guns yet…

14-08-2007, 11:28
Here’s the work I’ve done on the head since the last pic was taken…
The mouth on top isn’t finished yet, but its slowly getting there…

And work has now begun on other parts of the Titan! Say hello to the legs!!
Marine is in there for a bit of size comparison

14-08-2007, 12:15
Loving the Nids here... nice stuff :D

What is the basis for the titan - all the bits with skulls and stuff...? Looks cool. I love the idea with the Cauldron too - inspiring :)

14-08-2007, 14:29
The basis? you mean why am I doing it? Or what I am I using for it?

I'm doing it because I would like to have a non-expensive titan for Apocalypse

I'm using mostly plasticard (and plastic tubing when I get some) along with the Arcane Ruins and Green Stuff etc with some stuff from my bits box

14-08-2007, 19:07
Braids? Creepy? I dunno... kinda lame lookin... vampire? I dare ya! Put it up!

So the forums were down for everyone then?

If u say so :p (this is what i look like after my girlfreind assualts me^^)
But me is on ugly moefo :eyebrows:

14-08-2007, 19:45
I'm using mostly plasticard (and plastic tubing when I get some) along with the Arcane Ruins and Green Stuff etc with some stuff from my bits box

That's the one :D


15-08-2007, 09:41
If u say so :p (this is what i look like after my girlfreind assualts me^^)
But me is on ugly moefo :eyebrows:

Wait! Why the ****** do I recognise you?

15-08-2007, 10:44
I have NO idea O.o i live in sweden, ever been there?
(Dethklok pwns! :evilgrin:)

15-08-2007, 11:32
Neeeeeeveeeeer been to Sweden :eek: I dunno what that face is for... I need to go watch more metalocalypse, but its not on :cries:

I'll be updating with pics in a minute, finished the Plague Marines and I've done more work on the Pred, all the grey bits are grey, just need to do some more blacking, then highlight it and add the metal...

15-08-2007, 12:03
First off, like I said, I finished the Plague Marines… ta da…I’ve been cleaning out my room, so the area I usually photograph on is covered in crap, I did manage to clear a clear space on the thingy under the desk, so that’s why its blue…

Yeah, some people are gonna say ‘the metal is too clean for Nurgle’ but I don’t care…

Next, I’ve been painting a couple of Chaos Hounds…

1) They are on square bases

2) They are not in the new codex

3) They are part of my fantasy Chaos Army

So why are they here? Cos for every 1000pts of Chaos I get painted, my local GW give me a purity seal (not specifically me, but everyone), and when apocalypse comes out, all the seals are put in a hat (or box) and the owner of the one that is drawn out gets 1000pts of any army they want for free… and it just so happens, Hounds are a crap-load easier and faster to paint then my chaos marines, and we’re still using the old codex so its completely legal!

I’m really proud of this guy (hence having 2 pics of him (or her (you never know with chaos (ooh, lots of brackets (sweet))))), what with having painted him with my eyes glued shut at 3am…

This one was painted more around midnight, so I don’t really care (I prefer the black one (or is it grey (Damn brackets!!))…

15-08-2007, 12:04
And again, like I said, a very grey looking predator… You can see I’ve done about half (or 2/3s) of the blacking in, hopefully I’ll get the rest done later today…

And me... with... crappy... crappy... braids... of crap... they were fallin out at the time too... so it sucked... lots...

15-08-2007, 14:21
Braids=Kool if not falling out :evilgrin: Looks very "KoRn" *thumbs up*
For metalocalypse: Metalocalypse Episodes (Watch for FREE) (http://video.glath.com/metalocalypse.php) (free stream)
And i really like your nurgie dudes :D

15-08-2007, 15:57
yeah, someone tried to cheer me up by saying that, didn't stop them looking crap at the time though...

Sweet :evilgrin: Ill never leave the monitor again...

yeah, lol... I also started work on one of the lil familiar robot things... its done apart from the base and a lil highlighting on the skull and horns...

GAH!!!! ********** MOUSE IS BEING A SPAZ!!!!

16-08-2007, 20:11
Just a couple quick things...

1) I can't se what Im doing as the monitor's busted and everythings got mostly Fs in its coloring... if you dont get that then youre not as sad as me...

2) If I have miseplt anything, blame it on number 1

3) I am very upset with myself as I haven't touched the Titan in 3 days or more...

4) I bought an Eldar Jetbike today as the start of my 1000pt Exodite Army... I wont be using the biker itself, so for the moment its an empty bike with no guns (i clipped em off to swap for a Shuriken Cannon)...

5) erm... thats all (i wish I could see what I was ********** doing)

16-08-2007, 21:33
Update: I can see again! for the moment...

I have put the cannon on the bike, primed it, and basecoated it... then found there was no chaos black, GAH!!!

16-08-2007, 22:01
Yay^^ Seeing is good ..

17-08-2007, 17:29
yeah, seeing is very good... Turns out the problem was with the Graphics Card... so thats been taken out and the internets all jumpy, but otherwise fine... I have pics of my Eldar so far, but cant be bothered to upload due to the (probably mentioned) cleaning of my room that is leaving me very exhausted... so yeah...

Edit: Changed my mind and decided to upload the pics, then dropped the plug thingy for the camera down the back of the computer, and am too tired to go fetch...

17-08-2007, 18:19
w00t!? FETCH! Me want piccies!

17-08-2007, 18:48
Haven't fetched yet... but I think im rested enough to give it a shot, dont be surprised if I come back from my digging empty handed...

Edit: got it.. had to crawl into a hot cramped mega-dusty hole under the computer with a bedside lamp to find it...

17-08-2007, 19:04
Hey! Got the pics! Woo! No chaos, but at least I got some pics of my semi-painted Eldar… Also did a bit of work on the Titan late last night as well

Autarch is currently unhighlighted…

Jetbike is highlighted and the Stones have been painted, just thinking about varnishing them…

9 pages late, but here’s the pet shot :P
Its Fluffkins, and she’s humping an Orc for some reason…

17-08-2007, 19:05
Hmmm, Ive got a shed full of cures for fluffy things like that!

17-08-2007, 19:09
Cure? Why cure? Its so, erm.. fluffy!!

17-08-2007, 20:03

The varnish killed the codex grey!!! Its showing the blue through!!!

And before you say anything Kraal, eating my paint job is so ********** worth lots of ! and ?

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

so there! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! :P ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

18-08-2007, 14:37
Nothing but bad news I’m afraid…

1) I’m broke. No job (for the moment), my mum isn’t giving me any more moneyz, I do however start getting my EMA next month (£30 a week)…

2) I’m going away for a week (nearly)… I’m leaving on Monday and will be back on Saturday (some time)… so today and tomorrow will be the last updates until next Sunday…

3) The ‘cleaning’ process of my room has emptied the contents of all my drawers, cupboards and everything else into the middle of my very cramped room… forcing me to put all my models in storage, so I can only paint what’s on the table (Predator, Terminator, Hound, Jetbike and Autarch)…
It’s a tip (full of weird crap from when I was little)…

4) Still no black… this is simple (and obvious), I still haven’t been able to get hold of anymore Chaos Black… so Predator and Terminator aren’t going anywhere fast…

That’s about it, though on the lighter side, I have a few pics of the work on the Warhound…


19-08-2007, 13:27
no one? meh... anyway, expect some freaky stuff here soon... I've gone back over an old project I was doing and I've revamped it into a Codex of sorts... Cos LatD are getting there rules ground into the ground (:wtf:) I'm writing my own one... and I'll hopefully be posting snip and snaps of it before posting the finished thing...

Also (because of this) expect to see my SM Razorback and Doom3 Armoured Zombies to be getting a Chaotic Make Over in preparation...

19-08-2007, 13:47
Titan<3 Doom3 zombies? GIMMEGIMMEGIMME!

19-08-2007, 16:08
First page if you didn't see em... just Space Marine Scouts that were gonna get painted up all Zombified... the actual Zombies don't even look like Doom3, they just look like pirate-space-zombies...

20-08-2007, 16:24
Super update time! Done lots of converting for my LatD project! I’ve converted a squad of Maelstrom Troopers (Chaotic Storm Troopers) and begun work on a ‘Razorback’… In the rules it will actually be an upgrade for a rhino, adding a turret-weapon and reducing transport capacity to 6...

3 of the Maelstrom Troopers

Maelstrom Trooper with Heavy Bolter

More to come…

20-08-2007, 16:25

Maelstrom Trooper Agitator

The Complete Squad

And some pics of the Rhino so far…

More to come…

20-08-2007, 16:25

The Rhino will have more spiked and blades and chains when its done… its got a symbol of each of the chaos gods on it as it will be a dedicated Transport for the ‘Unholy Alliance’ which is a special upgrade for Chaos Marine HQs

A Big Mutant Herald, another HQ choice (Needs to get mounted on a circle base)

More to come…

20-08-2007, 16:26

And progress on the Autarch… highlighted all the blue and have begun the white

We have Chaos Black now! Woo! Just in time for me to be leaving :(

End… for now…

20-08-2007, 21:04
I'm gone

I am away for the week now, there is a computer here so I can keep talking, I just won't have anything new to show until either late on Saturday or some time on Sunday...

22-08-2007, 19:04
Crap! I'm back! No one else is here! Boo!

The tent broke so we came back... but I still won't be able to get anything until Sundayish...

22-08-2007, 19:33
nice work, i like the chaosness you've added to the scouts,

i've gotta say, unique take on the rhino with the front spikes. very very good stuff,

on the subject of tents: Never broken, or had one brake of me myself. good fortune, or blind stupidity i do not know!

Anyways, keep it up and i shall watch this.


22-08-2007, 19:43
cool, cheers :D

Is it vanity if I think my hands look old in those pictures? (gods, I feel so wrinkled!) (apologies to anyone who is (or think they are) wrinkled)...

23-08-2007, 18:44
Well i would have been here if i wasn't gone myself :D

23-08-2007, 19:46
lol, everyone seems to be buggering off recently... okay, so its one person I know in real life... bah!

23-08-2007, 19:48
I've noticed that, its as if the US servers down, just us Brits, and Hive!

23-08-2007, 20:11
The 'save those models' and touch-up challenge!

I'll be using this to get my Nids finished... like I said I would ages ago... but now I'm actually doing it... I only have one week to get it all done... so I'll be leaving my Chaos, LatD, Titan and Eldar alone for that week and try and get all my Nids finished...

Still to go;
1 Carnifex
8 Genestealers
8 Hormagaunts
8 Termagants

It's potentially doable with my fast scheme... I just need to make sure I don't get distracted... which is very likely... then after that week I'm (hopefully) starting college which means I'll be gone (as in out of the house) for the middle of most days, will be studying and will have less time to paint and log...

But I will be getting my EMA, which means more army for me!!

23-08-2007, 22:32
:evilgrin::evilgrin: !!!!!!!MY HEART EXPLODES WITH JOY!!!!!!! :evilgrin::evilgrin:

I'm all hyper cos I'm now officially getting the Chaos Army Deal! WOOOOOOOOO!!!! Just another 15 Marines and some painting and my chaos army is done!

23-08-2007, 22:53
I lied... after that box and 15 marines I would still need 9 more chosen, another defiler, 12 more berzekers, 12 noise marines, 18 thousand sons, 6 plague marines, 15 more possessed, 2 baneblades, 1 land raider, a few rhinos, plenty more spawn, 2 more dreads, 4 more raptors, another terminator lord, a couple of sorcerors and probably some other stuff...

making a total of 350 models!! What a stroke of luck it came to such a round number... I can honestly say I didn't count on that...

24-08-2007, 06:34
Any chance of a big/massive group/army shot of them chaos boys?

24-08-2007, 09:58
I would say yes... but no... I have no where to put them and no way of getting them all down to my local GW with any ease... buit next time I get a chance I'll try and photo all of em at once... not that I have em all yet...

24-08-2007, 10:38
WHOA! nice titan, despite the whole chaos heretic scum thing.

Wooooooooo EMA! (silly government)

24-08-2007, 10:59
I know, its great isn't it? (the EMA i mean :p)

24-08-2007, 11:42
Did I mention that becase the tent broke I went on a Looting Frenzy and got the poles from it? Should be good for the Titan... I also found an old robot kit of mine which should be good for the Titan as well...

24-08-2007, 23:25
I feel bad for not doing anything for nearly a week... so (now that my Chaos Army Box has been ordered) I'll be picking up a Defiler tommorrow... and turning the front claws into-

Thats right!! Tommorrow night! Work begins on STARSCREAM!!! complete with transformer style head, arm-mounted weapons, and a 'to punish and enslave' police logo... :evilgrin::evilgrin::evilgrin:

"I like being mad, it makes me happy!"

24-08-2007, 23:37
I'm going to keep an eye on this log. everything is very creative!

25-08-2007, 00:02
cheers :D and creativity is one of my favourite things about this hobby... theres always something else that can be done...

25-08-2007, 11:07
Well isnt that just brilliant! I'm back to the painting table tonight and wont be able to update until Tuesday! Blumin' down time!

Edit: anyway, I've ordered the Army Box and I'm gonna be off to get the Defiler soon...

For want of a better word, I am 'Peeved'

I have ordered my Chaos Army Box for the shocking price of just £88 and free postage, something I am very happy about... So why am I not happy? Because I have no idea when it will be showing up... which is a little frustrating, cos I want it NOW!!!

25-08-2007, 14:54
Ok, got the Defiler, but no idea when I'll be getting home... some party that I have to try and talk my way out of at the moment...

I am a post-whore :evilgrin:

My new favourite smily is :evilgrin:

25-08-2007, 19:22

Every now and then, I’ll do something big and fun with a GW kit, this is one of those times… Progress on Starscream is going at least twice as fast as I thought it would… I already have the torso, head and legs finished… all that’s left is the arms, but that where the problem arises…

Finished Legs

Finished Torso

Finished Head

Finished fore-arm with Heavy Flamer

The other arm will incorporate the Battle Cannon and he will count as having swapped his Reaper for a CCW… The head was made from two of the heads, cut up and stuck to each other… Didn’t go as smoothly as I wanted, but its okay I guess…

As I said, there was a slight problem… the arm slots are too big for the ball-joints of the legs… and I cant work out a way to make them fit… yet.

26-08-2007, 10:55
Hurray! Starscream is completely assembled!! I shall begin painting him today… right after lunch…


26-08-2007, 10:56

26-08-2007, 12:15
The robot<3 I gotta make one two now, just 'cause :D

26-08-2007, 13:05
lol, yeah... Like I said I'll paint him after lunch... just had lunch, and I cant paint him... I green stuffed the gaps on the chest earlier today and its still kinds gooey... I'll prime it later and wait until tongiht or tommorrow to start the actual painting :D

27-08-2007, 17:23
that looks great, can't wait to see him finished, Btw, where did you get that head?

28-08-2007, 06:31
Its the unhelmeted head from the Defiler with the horns chopped off... I then chopped the horns off the helmeted Defiler head, split it into three parts and glued them on the top and sides... the bits on the sides are the tips of the helmeted head horns... and the spike on top is from a Chaos trophy rack...

The spike makes him look more like Megatron from the original cartoon then Starscream from the movie... but either way, so long as its Transformery I've reached my goal!

Cheers :D

28-08-2007, 06:39
Okay, I've started painting Starscream... I've given him two coats of grey and I've started blacking in... I've blacked in the left arm and about 40% of the torso

29-08-2007, 11:33
*crosses finger, hoping the forum doesn't ****** up*

Bought a Chaos Sorceror yesterday... seeing as how I didn't have any for some reason... He's gonna be Slaaneshi cos I need a model with Lash of Submission...

I also sprung for one of the big £50 cases... so I have no moneyz left...

29-08-2007, 11:41
lol... he not done yet... I may pos what I have so far... I dont know...

I love to tease :D

Just worked out that (when I get my Chaos Army Box together) I will have 10142pts worth of Chaos/LatD including all the stuff from WHFB that I can use in 40K...

29-08-2007, 11:41
Piccies o the robot? plz..plz?

29-08-2007, 18:59
Well, here ya go…


I haven’t even finished Blacking in yet… but at least you can see how far I am…

More to come…

29-08-2007, 19:05
Also finished converting the Razorback… it’s a merry pawn of the dark gods now

And one of the models I’ve been fixing… he needs Green Stuff in his thighs to make him proper…

P.S. That was very bad English on my part…

29-08-2007, 20:32
Nice stuff dude :D

29-08-2007, 20:38
Cheers :D I need to start getting my LatD sprused up for Apocalypse as well as the Marines...

29-08-2007, 21:39
I'm going off to do some painting or something now... I won't be back until Friday some time... Hopefully my Army Box will have arived by then... G'night all :evilgrin:

Merceus out

31-08-2007, 22:25

lol... I am back... I have not much time to write this!! I got my box yesterday but had to leave so only started half an hour ago!!

I got the Lord together... converted a Termie into a Sorceror and finished 2 normal termies (sarge and autocannon)... I am going to do other two now...

Be back with pics tommorrow... I can't spell!!!

01-09-2007, 06:51
been deathly quiet on here aint it? keep up the good work!

01-09-2007, 16:57
lol, cheers...

Like I said, pics today... okay, maybe tommorrow... I dunno...

I just lost a conversion competition! I wouldn't mind usually, but the winner was a *******' golden carnifex with a Tau on top!! And it was a TANK CONVERSION contest!!! GAH!!!

01-09-2007, 17:15
carnifexes ARE counted as vehicles arent they?

awesome log, and also regarding the titan, how much has it cost you now? it would be ironic if it is now more expensive as the FW one :P

01-09-2007, 17:40
I dont know if theyre counted for the purposes of a TANK contest :p

Titan's only about £20-25 so far... Still need Empire Wizards (£10) and a bit of Mail Order stuff (£6ish)... So should only be about £50-60 all together including the fact I need to buy tubing and more plasticard...

Speaking of Mail Order I ordered a Defiler Leg sprue today... I didnt have enough for the Brass Scorpion... Should I start it now or when I get the legs?

Edit: I have also been challenged to build Pirate themed Chaos Marines... I'll be using them as a Mercenary style detachment... I'll probably do about 750-1000pts of them then leave it... I'll be back later with a list...

03-09-2007, 09:54
After a quick check, turns out my army is actually 10517pts strong… hurray… Anyway, onto the pirates…

Captain - Chaos Lord
Ship Mates - Chaos Marines
Witch Doctor - Aspiring Sorceror
The Gallow’s Souls - Thousand Sons
The Siren’s - Noise Marines
Things of the Deep - Spawn

Captain, Chaos Lord - 115
Mark of Slaanesh, Power Weapon, Melta Bombs.

10 Ship Mates - 205
Champion, Power Weapon, Icon of Slaanesh, Flamer.

Witch Doctor - 177
Warptime, 4 Gallow’s Spirits.

6 Sirens - 165
Champion, 6 Sonic Blasters.

2 Things of the Deep - 80

Well that about covers the pirates… erm, yeah, still not sure what models I’ll be using for Sirens or Things of the Deep, but everything else is pegged… Don’t know when I’ll start it though… I’ll also use the Apocalypse Vehicle Design Rules to make a flying boat for them…

But now, onto the models…

First things first, who says you can’t build a Brass Scorpion in a single afternoon? This bugger took from 11am until 2pm, including a break for lunch… He’s still missing a pair of legs and some armour plates on his tail, but other then that he’s done…

I couldn’t be bothered with the Razorback thing, so now it’s a Daemonically Possessed Command Rhino with specially made gunner…

Also managed to get two characters out of the Army box, just used some spare parts on one of the normal terminators, so now I have the Lord and a Sorceror…

I used the spare Termie Lord parts again on the Champion, giving him a pair of Lightning Claws…

03-09-2007, 09:55
And like I said I would, my Possessed are Slaaneshi…

…With a Slaaneshi Icon Bearer too…

And the Spawn, the pointy face guy keeps on disappearing when I lift up the foam on top of him in the case… I had the same problem with Hormagaunts once…

Like I promised (I think) here’s a shot of the entire army… spread over 7 pictures…

03-09-2007, 09:56

03-09-2007, 09:57

Edit: Damn... some of the pics are blurry...

03-09-2007, 10:05
any chance of a close up merceus?

03-09-2007, 10:07
Depends what you want a close up of

03-09-2007, 10:11
the pink ogres at the back, look interesting!

03-09-2007, 10:33
lol, everyone seems to be buggering off recently... okay, so its one person I know in real life... bah!

Oooh, I'm sorry. Anyway, I could take 'em! if there were somewhat less of them... erm... no. Actually, I'm lovin' that tank section. Sorry I've been off recently, the forum's been buggerin' me over.

03-09-2007, 18:18
You either mean the Big Mutant Boss...

...or more likely, these guys...
...they are the Mancubi from my Doom3 army for LatD

03-09-2007, 18:54
Yes the three chappies, you wouldn't want to meet those on a dark night!

03-09-2007, 19:52
I just realized those guys look like Strogg

03-09-2007, 20:53

*checks google images*

Ah... they do kinda... but pudgier...

If I could have people's attention now (why else would you be reading? :wtf:) I would like to point you to this thread (http://warseer.com/forums/40k-general-discussion/101144-which-army-for-apocalypse.html), any help is greatly appreciated... and thanks for all comments both here and there :D

04-09-2007, 13:10
Liking the mancubi :D
An' the chaosness of your army!
And the termies..and..and *implode*

04-09-2007, 17:05
lol... no one ever uses implode anymore... explode is just too dangerous...

04-09-2007, 17:19
But i like my implode *weep*

05-09-2007, 18:32
Hurray! College started today... sucks so bad on Mondays... start 8:40am finish 4:20pm... but most of the other days are only two or three hours each... so meh... and EMA starts next week... I think... I have no idea...

05-09-2007, 22:00

07-09-2007, 14:30
I will kill you! I know where you live!

Anyway... back on topic... the Scorpion is finished with the last two legs and armour plates attached... Now everything awaits spraying...

Edit: Scorpion, Tereminators and Spawn are now all undercoated...

09-09-2007, 08:54
I'ev decided that when I get home tonight, I will undercoat the rest of my Nids... just cos I really wanna finish em off...

09-09-2007, 09:03
Do it! Then take pics!

09-09-2007, 09:44
When do I not take pics? :p

09-09-2007, 15:58
Gief pic o dat! Or i will spike you with my spikes!

09-09-2007, 16:13
At the moment its three balls of polystyrene stuck to each other for the torso... not much else yet... yup, its a sculpting project... oh joy

Turns out I wont be spraying tonight what with going to the cinema instead... so I'll spray tommorrow when I get home from college after I've been to the supply shop to get some card to begin work on the Warlord and plasticard to continue the Titan... Also need to find plastic tubing...

09-09-2007, 17:54
ahh plasticard. Friend of those who posses it, idol of jelousy for those without it.

Your stuffs lookin good merceus, keep it up.

As the eyes of the ToPS are watching, i will say this: You sculpt looks almost like a overbalanced big headed chicken. But it is a well done big headed chicken.... <-I lie.



09-09-2007, 18:14
Gah! I dont want a chicken mutant!

Here's a quick pic of what he'll finish as... hopefully... just rough... very rough... its rubbish... and his hand wont be doing that...


09-09-2007, 20:21
so..... a sort of dinosaur with a party trick then?

i think you'd be better off with the chicken.


Wait! he could be some sort of chickosaurus-rex!


10-09-2007, 16:46
Aha-aha-aha. This is my sarcasto-laugh. Well done Mercyboy! The mega-demon is looking gooood! I would not like to face THAT! oh, wait... Yes I would! MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!
