Spaghetti Face

Slow and steady wins the race?  Nah utter bullshit, focus and dedication does.......on to another conversion.  First of the exalted sorcerers, still need to sculpt an upper lip but sculpting can be time consuming at the best of times, so much time spent waiting for stuff to cure, lucky I have other models to build whilst I wait :D

Once cured, sand down one edge so it is flat, and add balls of putty with a little super glue and then with the end of a brush prod it to make a sucker.  Octopus tentacles are done.....

Henchmen Fnished.....

.........Until I make some more!!

It was a close call, up till 1am on Friday morning painting and a little help from my friend Ben Lamble to paint the bases got them finished just in time, and a culexus too!!

Even managed to fluke Best Unit award at the Throne of Skulls.  I think I will add some light chipping to the red on them, like I did on the fatman

















And a nasty little bastard.....the Culexus



Next up a Sisters of Battle Rhino for my Death Cults (because thanks for fucking my Inquisition army every edition change) and inquisitor Hector Rex

Back in the Saddle

It has been a while.........well it's been a fucking age since I last posted something.  I won't bore people with how crap life has been for me over the last 2 years suffice to say everything is most definitely on the up.  On and positive note I have been painting stuff just not posting it, so I might do a post soon with a catch up.

Anyway.............

Gloves are off and I have set myself a challenge, paint 6 henchmen and a culexus assassin by Friday morning next week.

I have spent the last few days knocking up the henchmen and came up with this merry band of delinquents

Grey knight bits, SM bolter, high elf arms and legs, skitarii torso and coat, space wolf head, brass rod and plasticard

Pimp My Land Raider Cont......

Much more was done last night but I wanted to share the motto for the front doors in particular.  Much umming and aarring was done so I eventually went with "Mors Tua Vita Mea"

Pimp My Land Raider Cont......

So it has been a while since I updated my blog, I have no special excuse other than I am a lazy shite......

Anyway decided that the Coteaz Land Raider was starting to gather dust (literally) which I couldn't have so have started to paint it.

Cut to the WIP pictures 





I was originally worried it would look too Khornate with the skulls but as the other details have started going on feel much better about it in general.

The Emperor's Guard

Space Wolves pushed to one side as there was no way I was going to get them all done in time for the beginning on September without rushing them and as I am enjoying them too much that was not an option.  So reverted to my Imperial knights and trying to get them finished instead.  Far easier ask.....
 
Over the last week I have been working on Ixion (the Acheron) and Iapetus (the Lancer) and guess what........subject to the bases being painted they are both done and I have a substantial little force of knights to rock it at Throne of Skulls, will most likely take some of my other gear with so I can alter my list if knights are boring having never actually used them :D
 



First up Iapetus, the electrical effect on this guy's gear is far superior to Gungnir's Wrath


 
 
Then we have Ixion named after the man sentenced to spend eternity on a flaming wheel by Zeus
 
 
 
 
And then a group shot
 
We are the defenders of the sacred fruit bowl, none may have fruit in this house!
