    Grimtuff does a(nother) Project log.....

    ...As I neglected the first one and didn't stick to it (because i'm weak-willed) *ahem*. My aim for this is simple. To plough through much of the stuff i've got so buying more stuff won't be as bad (he he)

    Without further ado, I introduce the particpants:
    RED is bad, not really a priority. But I would like to get them done.
    AMBER is so-so. I've a good force for gaming with but they've been unpainted for too long.
    GREEN is a good status, the level I would like to get all of the armies up to.
    Space Wolves: about 85% done, i'll tackle these first
    Khador: only about 1/2 the stuff painted
    Cult of Slaanesh Dark Elves: about 70% done.
    Nurgle Daemons: Basecoated. These may have to wait until the new book next year.
    Necrons: 99.9999% done. They're not really part of this (yet) but the squads paint up so quick they can be done as an "in between" thing)
    Legion of Everblight: Basecoated. Stuff still in boxes.....
    Dark Eldar Haemonculi Cult: Urien Rakarth painted, Grotesque conversions basecoated.

    There's more, but we'll do them later. One step at a time.....
    Here's a taster of my Space Wolves.
    Wolf Lord

    Grey Hunter pack

    WIP Wolf Guard Terminators.


    As you can see, i'm a rather messy painter, but the end result comes out nice IMO.

    Also my Khador:


    On with the log!

    Whoah. 76 views and no replies. I'm not that boring am I?

    Some progress has been made on the Terminators. I know the paint looks a little thick on the Cruxs, but they're repaints.... and they look a good gaming standard in the army as a whole IMO.


    Now to jazz the thread up a bit I give you the Brass Scorpion conversion (made to look suspiciously like Plaguelord Baldaric's version) I won't be painting this for a while. But if you egg me on enough I can get round to painting it.

    Loving the huge Brass Scorpion, is that more than 2 defiler's worth?

    Some very cool stuff here, I espicially like your Wolf Lord and your Khador, even though I don't know what the Khador is!

    I would suggest maybe adding a couple of highlights on some of the wolves armour, it looks a tad flat.

    Keep up the good work and please paint the brass scorpion
    If you disagree with me then you must be wrong.

    Good God! People replied! I was getting lonely, I may as well update for you then....

    @Tonberry: Nope, it's just 2 Defilers. Pretty much the whole thing is made from the 2 kits

    The Terminators are now done.


    and i'm moving onto the next stage of the army (as it's being converted to an Apocalypse force) This is how it stands ATM.


    Naturally i've decided to go full circle and re-do my first ever army (the originals are lost in the mists of time though) as allies.

    Here's one Sergeant Centurius to kick off my LOTD allied contingent.


    The flames are not as bright IRL, the flash on my digicam brought them up like that, just like it dulls the highlights on my Space Wolves......

    As for the Khador. They've been put on hold for a bit as Nurgle Daemons will take their place no thanks to a good friend of mine who got my playing WHFB again so the Warhammer bug is rooted firmly in place and won't budge till i've painted an army.

    CnC as always, is welcome.

    That venerable dread thingy is excellent. Ive never seen one modelled to look like infantry as opposed to a walker. I normally lurk here but you made me post!

    Cheers for the comments! I assume you're on about this one.

    It was part of a stillborn Iron Hands army, but got converted (more) and migrated into my SW army. The head is made from a GW keyring, which I found out completley by accident that they're made from the same substance as their metal figs.

    Also, here's a Vindicare Assassin Kill Team for Apocalypse.


    They're made from some old Syntha (I think) models from Void, Cadian Lasguns and CSM smoke launchers as the scopes. Two scopes on each weapon, they've got to shoot better now surely!

    *BTW i've noticed the splodge of paint on one of the Vindicare's legs. It'll get corrected in a bit.

    They're meant to look like that. Getting trapped in the Warp does not exactly do good things to your complexion.

    Speaking of LOTD, here's a start on the Terminator (do you get the impression I like Terminators?) and Command squads. They are both VERY WIP, the flames need sharpening up quite drastically for starters but it give you an idea of how they're painted.




    Also, here's a sneaky peeky for the Daemonic Legion i'll hopefully get started on next week(ey).



    Yes, there really are 60 Plaguebearers there!

    Little update on the Command Squad. They're now 1/3rd complete and well on the way to being 100% done.

    Here's the completed 3


    And a couple of shots of the Company Champion at different angles.

    I really like your Wolf Lord and Ven Dred. Your deamon legion looks promising too! Hoping for more pics of that!

    Re: Grimtuff does a(nother) Project log.....

    Update time!

    Here's a shot of the whole Apocalypse-sized SW force and also an indication of what is left to paint



    I know what you're thinking. They need more tanks! As after looking at that pic that is what I thinking. I'm incredibly heavy on the infantry front, but I think I need a little more armour.... Though having said that a converted Knight Castellan is absent from the pic as it's in the window of GW Lincoln (heh).



    WIP on a Librarian made from the old Tiggerius (hoo hoo hoo hoo, yes I know mispelt it) He should be finshed by tomorrow.



    Completed Command Squad. Did a little freehand on the banner, the skull is based on an Aztec idol of Mictlantecuhtli, whose "sunken-cheeked and horribly grimacing, keeps watch over the cold, famine ravaged relam of the dead." Sounded perfect for LOTD!



    Lastly a WIP Tactical Squad, complete with a conversion of a Vet Sgt. that I "borrowed" from CMON.

    C&C welcome as always.

    Re: Grimtuff does a(nother) Project log.....

    So your force is a mix of legion of the dammed and space wolves? Interseting. But I think that you don't need anymore tanks, you got 4 dreadnoughts and that is enough. And what is knigh cellestian?
    Look their, a bird.:confused:
