    Hobby Group Auxillia Work

    Welcome! This is the log where I'll post anything which I've converted and/or painted for others. Most of my hobby work is not done for my own armies, but rather for my brother's and our friends' collections.

    It's a great way to experience modelling and painting all miniatures in Warhammer without buying them.

    Background might be added later on as my friends work that out.

    Sorry for the glossy-gloss varnish. Most paintjobs are old, some models are damaged and awaiting repairs. Matt varnish will eventually catch up with everyone.

    Let's begin with the miniscule finished Lustrian collection. Consisting of one Saurus Drummer and an Elven courier who've been through hardships without end in the jungle.

    The Saurus has on his base the first or second whole model I ever sculpted, namely a Pygmy Halfling who angered the reptile. Spawning of Tepok and Sotek.



    Whilst the Elf have a baby Ancylosaurus.



    Here's a sculpted version of my brother's cat. Christmas present. Beside the old, ragged Elf sculpt.



    The cat was on one tournament the army general of a friends quarter-painted Skaven army. Here she is with some giants rat. Plus a test Skaven/Kobold converted from a BFSP Night Goblin.





    Speaking of vermin, next are some Gobbos I painted for two friends.



    My brother also have the Undead variant. Fun to convert:



    Note the small Squigs, the entrails, the mummy and the fish shield.

    Re: Hobby Group Auxillia Work

    My brother's excentric Undead army have headless Dire Wolves. The primary reason is dislike with the big heads in the plastic kit. Background-wise it's logical for Dire Wolves to go headless sometimes, since Old World peasants behead any wolf corpse they find as an obstacle for Undeath.

    Note Halfling head and rat on base.





    A friend of ours also have some Undead. Here are a few Mantic Skeletons which I painted in Empire colours, including shield symbols. Can you spot their origin? The middle swordsguy is painted by the friend.



    Said mate also have Warriors of Chaos. Here's Fetth the Flyface, bringer of many laughs and built from plastic sprue, filler, super glue and green stuff.



    This thing may now be an Eye of the Gods marker, but since that didn't exist when I built it for another friend, he thought I was an idiot for making that out of soft airgun pellets. He was funny to listen to when he condemned the pathetic nature of the eye pile!



    Yarr! My brother's pirate.



    And his Elves. We developed their colour scheme when painting Lotr High Elves years back. We're slow painters (though we're picking up speed and method now) and have no finished unit to speak of.

    Elves are fairy fey for starters, so to make them convincing, grounded and lethal they needed a pretty dark and realistic colour scheme. No pinks here!

    Note cloaks on the Swordmasters.

    Good looking horde of stuff there. The undead goblins are brilliant, especially the headless wolves, very effective and creepy (you’ll probably be pleased to hear the goblin crawling out of the neck stump genuinely made me go “Eeeww”)

    Thanks! Indeed I am pleased. Psychological warfare cannot be neglected on the battlefield.

    Some weeks ago I played two quick 1000 pts games against a visiting friend and my brother with mainly unpainted stuff. In my first game the Hellcannon without crew was the sole survivor and victor on the battlefield. In the second game it was my brother's Elf Mage, who blasted the only remaining enemy (my Hellcannon, again) to smithereens in the last turn.

    As usual, my cat wished to partake in the battle. She toppled some Elves through mere clumsiness.



    Most of the featherwork have been made on my brother's Raven Heralds. Some more of that, and then there'll be bowstrings and needle arrows. Chuck in heads and some extra package and they're off to his paintstation.



    Update. A lot of hobby work has been carried out alongside my brother on Night Goblins and Elves. However, I didn't bring the camera to his place, so no picture proof of it.

    But there's more proof of Cat'Daai destroyer on the rampage! She intervened in the battle during turn 2, avoided my counts-as CDs (BFSP Night Goblins) and scythed through the High Elves.

    Enjoy:

    Cat enters the battlefield. She loves Warhammer, both the tabletop game and the workshop part.



    The dice is tossed. What will the D6 show?



    It must have been a stupidity check. The tower is under attack!



    She's a docile K'daai, yet the same cannot be said for that whipping tail...



    Tail attack!



    It's rampaging through the Swordmasters!



    The Elves were saved when the Cat'Daai Destroyer fled from the battlefield.



    It still ended in a High Elf victory.

    Re: Hobby Group Auxillia Work

    Our cats often accompany us when we do Warhammer stuff. My brother's cat usually interrupts him mid-work by occupying his lap, and my cat is so nosey and friendly when I work on something that she delayed work on the Chaos Dwarf headtakers by perhaps a whole day in total when I converted them in a long sweep two years ago. Rest assured, the fearsome Cat'daai Destroyer has grazed many a tabletop battle since last update, but we lack picture proof of it. Got to take some new ones. Our cats were odd for kittens to begin with, but they're getting even more eccentric and cute in their own ways with age.

    This update is however not about something as lethal as cats. It's about something pathetic in comparison, namely a Maulerfiend conversion I've been working on-and-off with for a Skaven-collecting friend of mine. It's based on a sketch he drew. My buddy magnetized a rectangular base so that it could be used as a K'daai Destroyer.

    He was so eager about the conversion that he managed to sneak it past other projects in my queue... Still, the sculpting was surprisingly quick work and was over before you knew it. Couldn't have done it so fast three years ago:



    And here's the painted version, alongside his brother. Not painted by me (though the Squats in the foreground are):

    Re: Hobby Group Auxillia Work

    WIP Ballista Ogre for my brother's army, still needs a Gnoblar hunted by a White Lion cub. Will be magnetized so he can either sit on a round artillery base as a Repeater Bolt Thrower, or a 40mm square base as a Leadbelcher:





    A finished prototype first rank norse Dwarf which I painted for my brother's small Dwarf army, based almost exclusively on Avatars of War. This particular regiment are converted Bronzeshields (who, along with their Ironshield elders, are constantly out of stock from AoW). Belt pouch and knife feature on all other regiment members, and all will have backpacks, as will they have cleaned Marauder shields akin to Kadrin Drakk, a beautifully converted and painted 6th edition Dwarf army featured in White Dwarf which have inspired us a lot:

    Re: Hobby Group Auxillia Work

    The CSM-collecting friend, let's call him J.A.B, inspected the newer starter kit Chaos Space Marine lord and Khrn, as well as the new Primaris Marines and probably a few older Space Marine character sculpts. He concluded that hip armour looks good and solves the silly look achieved by the thin thighs of plastic Space Marine legs. Some weeks ago, he visited his parents, brought a gaggle of heretical Marines and asked me to make hip armour on them. Quicksculpted, without time-consuming rivets, difficult spikes or suchlike. He was content, and after returning home to his study town he sent down Berzerkers to receive like treatment, and a FW Necron centipede which needed replacement antennae. I've tinkered with them since they arrived yesterday.

    Below are the results. Note "KIL KIL KIL" on the knife Berzerker's segmented plates. Also see his painted Lord of Change.



    Furthermore, my brother, alias EEJR, have ambitious conversion projects for his High Elf army, which in its plans include contingents from every part of Ulthuan and a little more. Many unique units have already been converted, particularly on the cavalry front. Here is the latest finished converted Elves of his, a handful of Avelorn Spearmen with large circlets:

    I missed this thread somehow- you sculpting and converting are top shelf shizzle.

    Those feathered cloaks are ridiculously well sculpted! As is the Maulerfiend head and the Ogre armour & Lion head. Very, very excellent :-)

    @Codsticker: Thank you kindly!

    @Abraham Danglebreech: Most appreciated!


    WIP for my brother's little power armoured collection. Grey Knight legs and helmets and Sanguinary Guard shoulder pads and torsos. Hip plates added to remedy thin thighs syndrome. Cloaks from Anvil Industry to be added later:

    Re: Hobby Group Auxillia Work

    Snapped this poor picture in a rush during an ongoing major sorting, cleaning and moving of furniture job in the family. An old sculpt of a Moria Goblin corpse lying amid rubble, its dessicated bones still draped in fraying clothes and with frail hair still clinging to its skull. Based on the imagery of Dwarf skeletons in Khazad-Dm, with a WHFB High Elf for scale reference.

    Death to the Goblins!

    Very nice sculpting and great implementation of "at" action.

    Those raven heralds look absolutely lovely.

    Thank you kindly!

    Edit: Mods are welcome to move to Random section.

    A Dark Eldar turned into an Eldar Fire Dragon converted for my brother. He thoroughly checked the Dark Eldar sprues back when they were new, and meticulously came up with ways to turn all manner of DE weaponry into Eldar Aspect Warriors with a little converting. More to come:



    Also, a team of ottermen converted from Skaven Blood Bowl players for Eisenhans. Quick-sculpted in car and at tournaments as per anatomical instructions:

    This is childish fun?

    You make it look too easy, very nice continuation on muscles and tail details. What are those buttocks?

    @Little Joe: Hnah, the platypus is!

    Thank you kindly. I've helped the smoothness along with careful layering of super glue on top. It both helps bind plastic and green stuff together (no fraying at the edges from long use and touching) and helps smooth things out. Mostly sculpted smoothness, though.

    Those buttocks are carriers of mammalian glands, namely female breasts. Cheers!

    My friend told me to axe the @$$ and instead go for a lean Daemon Prince of Arrogance look, not Lust. As per his instructions, there is now also shin armour plates with images of Elf torture: What else? I also added two lone flowing pteruges dangling from its belt. I'll show you the painted end result whenever he finish this creation:
