    Smile Sheep's Little Log That Could

    Hi guys, well why would any sane man have 2 project logs, well the answer is i'm not sane

    This log will hopefully grow slower then my other sturmtruppen log, because its a log of distractions, those things that always get in the way and stop you finishing the army of your dreams.

    Its all Boss_Salvages fault "What are those hounds for?" he says innocently enough. Then i think, yeah those hounds have sat bthere for ages, i think i'll paint one!

    2 1/2 hours later i get this:





    And there you go, one foot on the slippery slope of distraction.

    Comments, critisims and witisisms welcome.

    Cheers

    Re: Sheep's Little Log That Could

    Haha! I do what I can

    That said, that is one nice flesh hound, far far far better than the official GW sabertooth ones & painted twice as nice. You've picked out the great details in there, right down to those exposed sinews ...

    Distractions ftw!

    I'm really in 2 minds as tto whether or not i should put some sort of blood/saliva, because it'll show up great on the bone, but the skin is red, so not too sure.

    I really hated the GW flesh hounds too, so i used the chaos hound models. Got another 15 of them on the desk, if you want to give me a little more inspiration

    I like this thread of many distractions. Reminds me of my own.

    Bit of work left there though.

    Sick-Ass flying Tyrant! Debris is from the starter set right?
    His feet look a tad awkward though..
    I like the mild purple.. reminds me of one of the first games I ever played
    ULTIMA ONLINE! Amethyst dragon.. oh yea.. those were sweet times.
    * wipes away tear *

    What about a grot firing on him, from the outstanding pillar?!

    EDIT: those balrog wings are DAMN cool!

    What are you talking about, Zodiac? There's nothing wrong with his feet, they look like birdie-feet, which is cool.

    Keep it up, and may you have many distractions!

    Re: Sheep's Little Log That Could

    There's is many an interesting mini in this log Sheep. Don't we all have little distractions to keep us from finishing the army we really want

    I wish I had more time for little distractions but, alas, trying to get my marines actually finished is enough! The preachers flesh tones look especially nice and that tyranifex™ is a great conversion without having to go too overboard to set it apart.

    The flesh hound however, mm mmm mmm! Looks great, and to echo what others have said, using the hound minis beats the ******** of the saber tooth flesh nibblers that apparently are flesh hounds according to GW. However, it isn't helping me as after my marines I want to start a Night Gobbo army after bullying McMullet into teaching me WFB, however I am being sorely tempted by some sort of WFB Khornate army, unsubtle and red with big axes, how can you go wrong! It really is sorely tempting after seeing him. You didn't decide to model on a collar of Khorne though, interesting - or just because you couldn't be bothered to work on it for just a distraction mini?

    Nice one, good luck on continuing you distractions
    Dicky

    [edit] : And I love the name of this log as well! I have a special place in my heart for that book from my childhood, choo! choo!
    My Marine Project now finally with 1750pts completed... and I'm going to put this force to bed for the time being.
    My next project Khornate Gorewing - a converted all terminator Khornate warband!
    Other things I have messed about with a little are Adeptus Mechanicus and a foray in to WFB with Night Goblins that are a lot harder than you'd think for an obsessive compulsive converter!

    Re: Sheep's Little Log That Could

    All of those models are fantastic, I am especialy anticipating the conclusion of the Hive Tyrant. On another note, is there any chance of a recipie for the red, leather, bone parts of the flesh hounds and priest models? Thanks in advance,

    Thankyou very much Dicky, I thought about the collar, but i just couldn't do it without ruining the mane, i'm thinking i may do like a cuff around the ankle to represent it, WYSIWIG and all.

    Glad someone noticed the reference Me too, such compeling story when you were between the ages of 3 - 6. Although i do prefer the version from "Major Pain" now as a grown man
