Is Everyone Eating There Khorne-Flakes?

So it has been awhile since I have posted anything, but have recently gotten back into some more serious modeling with the release of the newest Chaos Codex. I decided to do a conversion that I have wanted to do for awhile, Khornate Obliterators!

I was originally inspired by Warhammer In Progress's nurgle obliterators, and wanted to do something equally unique for my own. It took me awhile to figure out what I wanted to do, and finally I decided to move forward on the project when I picked up GSI's tentacle maker.

So here is what I have so far:

"Squad Leader"
The "Leader"

Terrors of the Deep

So I have not posted in quite awhile due to the unholy triforce of family issues, work, and the wife deciding to rearrange the whole house (including my painting room/office).

Anyway, I have been meaning to get this guy up here for awhile, I ended up re-sculpting his head from what I had posted earlier, and although not completely happy with it, I think it turned out better than I thought. I also had to stray from what I wanted to do with the Standard in order to get the appearance that I wanted. Also, not sure if I want to keep the standard how it is, I think I might change it for smaller "subtler" tentacles and try to make the fabric appear more worn and tattered. But without too much further ado, here is the standard bearer for my Son's of R'lyeh Squad.

Landraider Concept Design

Here are some sketches that I have been working on for my second Landraider. I want it to be a main focal point for the army, and to match up in awesomeness with the first.I am thinking of really stressing the demonically possessed idea. I think a Bloodthirster torso would be the right size, but I am also thinking I might want to look at some third party mini's too, in order to give it a little different feel.

For the side sponsons I am thinking of doing demonic arms. A few questions, do you think that it is better to have the lascannons held in a fist, be the hand, or coming out of the wrist? Also what do you think about the demonic chains holding the demon to the Landraider, Good idea or not?

Slaanesh VS. Khorne. Welcome to the Thunderdome!

Well, despite a growing addiction playing League of Legends online, I have managed to get some work done on the Slaanesh demon prince, the quite a bit modeled on the second berzerker squad and a bit done up on my second land raider. Without further adeiu, here are the pics,

First up, excited that he no longer has to walk everywhere like everyone else is the Slaanesh demon prince:

Following the newly winged horror, is the armored bulk of the red destroyer, a WE landraider,

 Not sure yet if the front will be hinged to actually flip up and open, or if I will just make it look like it could, but keep it sealed. I am leaning towards the second option for ease.

Finally, a new squad of bloodthirsty brutes has appeared on the horizen, praise be to the khorne, my the blood never cease flowing,

 Next up is Cap't Hook, don't really wanna shake his hand

 Following the Captain, is the Knight,

 I still need to add some more detail to the glaive, but I think it is turning out nicely.

I also have three more that are almost completed, and will post them and a squad shot once I have all the backpacks made up and put on. And finally, a recent accrual of some FLGS$ saw me get a box of CSM and the Son's of R'lyeh have returned to my workbench.

Here is the beginings of the Standard bearer:

Not Quite sure about the head yet, I may redo it. I am also going to add a banner type piece under neath the squid head for the banner.

Finally, I have a question to pose to everyone, I am thinking about redoing the horns of the Slaanesh demon prince to be something like this:

Basically making them into a symbol of slaanesh. The question is do you think it would look good? If I do this, then he will probably get quite a few more Slaanesh symbols which I have avoided putting on him thus far in trying to keep in nondenominational. Seeing as how I am planning on selling this piece, do you guys think it would be good to dedicate him to slaanesh (it is the best prince gamewise), or would it be better to leave him more neutral?

Until Next time, when I will have some concept sketches of landraiders to show, I am out!

Trolly train of Khorne and Slaanesh Ape Demon WIP's

So here are a few updates of some of the stuff I have been working on,

First up is the World Eaters Landraider, some of you may remember it from the WIP pics that I have posted Before. It is finally getting some paint,

Btw, this is my first model that I really did with an airbrush (the red), and I must say that even with a crappy airfed single action, it is AWESOME. As far as painting red on large flat surfaces this was definately the coolest idea ever.

Next up is the Slaanesh demon prince that I originally posted up  Here.

A little bit more work has been done on him, added arms and reposed some stuff. I thought the old pose was boring, so I tried to make it more dynamic.

What you guys think?

Quick Edit

I meant to add this to my last post, but it must have slipped my mind.

The conversion that I did for Kharn was adapted from Tim Davis's Kharn conversion that he did quite a while ago. If you want to check out his the gallery is here:

I used a different custom chainaxe and a different helmet, but I love his original probably more than mine, so check it out. He is also quite a bit better of a painter than I am..

Finishing up the Squad

So I got the rest of my berzerkers done for this first squad, so without further adieu, here they are:

First up is the finished mutant

Next is a berzerker with yet another wooden shield, what can I Say, Khorne knows defense.

Next is the second Mr. Skulls,

Now its the second running marine,

No its time for one of my Favorite, the Beast,

Finally, Semi-Permanent Leader for the Squad, His Majesty Kharn,

So there there are, in all their glory. A few things that I would like to point out. First, I am not completely happy with the way the hazard stripes turned out on the chainaxe and chainsword, I think I may try to touch them up a little bit, especially after seeing the pictures. Second, the base that the Beast is on is a Micro-Arts Studio Skull base. I plan on doing the whole army up on them, they are pretty cool. Also, on both Kharn's base and the Beasts I will be painting on some Khorne symbols on the foreheads.

Finally, what do you guys think about adding some battle damage and wear to the marines, it should look good with the verdigras brass. I did it for the first time on my Cthulhu Marine, and thought it turned out alright. That being said, I don't really want to mess up 2 weeks of painting with something that might not look good.

Tyler Out.

p.s. Aaargh! Blogger formatting is annoying me!

What have I been up to lately?

Well, I actually have been doing some modelling recently, especially getting some stuff painted. Here is a few of the things that I have been working on recently....

Just as a note these are the first pictures of miniatures that I have taken with my new camera and tripod...I'm thinking I love it, the only editing that I did was adding the watermark, not even resizing or cropping....

Berzerkers I really want to get my khorne army done so I have been painting mainly my first squad of berzerkers, and hopefully will start on the landraider once those are done.


 The last on is still a WIP, a little bit left to paint on him, but I figured I would take his pictures anyway.

Next up is some further progress on the Ork Mek that I am doing as a commission for my brother. Added a bit since the last post, just need to do some casting to finish up the work on his left arm power klaw.

Finally is one of my crazy fantasy conversions that I decided to do, its a Slaanesh/Night Lords type demon prince. I will probably end up selling it when I am done converting it, so if anyone is interested, hit me up.

Not sure if I am going to give him wings, a jump pack, or nothing yet. For those that were hoping for more Cthulhu marines they are coming, I have the bits for a standard bearer and am planning on doing a Librarian psyker, but I need to clear some of my backlog first.

So what do you guys think?
