Haha got pics of that? Think he'll look like Red Hulk now because of all the scrubbing! Just Kidding

Sweet new squad members Laney! Curious what you will come up with on the Damocles armour!

Nice little squad!

Really interested in seeing how you'll be making the mk16 amours. That last pic with the tau is great! Powerfist to the face!

Mk16 Damocles Armour (Proof of Concept). I built this by carving at existing pieces and then using liquid GS to gas fill and smooth. I really need proper GS to complete a final version of this armour - but I'm quite pleased with this as a conversion (an Ultramarine I actually like!)... Mudboy inspired the pose (power fist to the face!).

The stomach armour need real GS to be done, the chest is not flat enough and the neck/helmet aren't quite right - but I think it feels okay.

The shoulder pad in the reference picture i found goes like this on the side

____ ____
\__________/

Instead of being strait across.

I love the snorkel intakes on that type of pack it looks awesome.

I almost think it would have been better to start from a Sergeant chest piece. As it already has the lip that comes up. But you would have had to sanded the eagle off.

I do love what you have done so far though. It's awesome.

This guy probably shares your pain. http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?263811-Dornian-Heresy-Ultramarine-Damocles-Armour

Cheers for the feedback Dysturbed - I'll try the terminator style shoulder pad on the next one and see if I can get some errant chest pieces from a bits site (or maybe even sculpt it myself).

The warseer guys thread is the one that inspired me to do a 28mm version of this armour (and who I copied for the backpack. Amazing work and the larger scale gives me a better idea of how I can sculpt that at this scale (as strange as that sounds). Right now my attempt is probably Mark 12, with a few more refinements to go to his the ultramarine standard and when I do - casting time! (Which is as much my nemesis as airbrushing!)

I want to make at least one as a master and one of 'pieces' I can then sculpt. For the arms and weapons I'll use regular 40k stuff (though plasma and power fists seem to be common amongst the mk16 ultras)

Cheers Laney

Back to the original topic - here are some blood angel updates (I've got to get through the painting before november - Sedition Wars will need painting and the bowset for 40k sounds rather good too!).

I recently read a short story on the Alpha Legion in the Primarchs Horus Heresy book. I didn't know much about them before the story and they are very cool! Here is a true scale Legionnaire that could lead a chaos cultist squad for me. I'm quite pleased with the liquid GS symbols (I hope they survive the undercoat!). The base came with an old Sanguinius model I bought 4 years ago and still haven't painted.





CandC welcome!

Cheers Laney

More to add - I've been really busy the last month or two, but I have done a few bits and bobs (more later)...

NOT MY MINI - A Crimson Fist Sergeant that I received from Battle brother Lucifer as part of the Great Marine Swap on Dakka Dakka - I will base in the same way as my other models and he can join my sternguard and non-jump pack vanguard units.





A Deathwatch Marine (still WIP in the last pic - c&c welcome) that I am doing for a Deathwatch competition. I might build a squad if I have time. I washed many times with mordian blue and then badab black before final thin coat of chaos balck leaving the blue highlight intact. I then messed (and hopefully recovered) the bionic eye - the idea was a laser pointer and ended up looking like a sniper shot to the head!











Reduced the garish glow!



An objective and servo skulls for another marine swap... (I'll post better pics later)



Cheers Laney

Playing around with greenstuff...







Alpha Legion and Emperor's Child (Loyalists) are both still WIP (NO PICS to share till they are done)

CandC Welcome

Laney... you are OUT OF CONTROL! I a great way... so I hope you continue to derail even more!

The Nurgle objective marker... SWEET NURGLISH PIMPLE!!! I love it! It is subtle... seems like a 'marker' until you see it... YIKES!!! It impaled a corpse! Ha! Amazing!

How are you doing the Servo Skulls? So far, so good!

The Deathwatch Marine... amazing job on that reflection. WOW! I had to remind myself that it was 'just paint'.

Valeria... gorgeous!

A scratch build model... you are passed cool. You can leave it as it is, and STILL would be the stuff of dreamers like me! AMAZING! You could use it for Sedition Wars!

It's obvious that I didn't receive an update notice from this thread because there's so much WOW in it that I would have drooled here earlier!
Awesome stuff Laney! I love the color of the Deathwatch Marine! Only achieved by the washes you mentioned?

Cheers Gents!

@Gatlag: the last layer was a thin coat of chaos black in key areas e.g. shoulder pads (to reduce the blueness - I needed to use necron abyss rather than mordian blue in stage one). The Dornian Raven Guard is a probably a better example of a wash based finish.

@Mord: Servo skulls will get a basic brass finish (maybe with a touch of verdigris) and red glowy bits to finish. The base is actually the main focus and I may adorn the walls with graffiti, moss and the like. On the scratchbuild - I'm following in Narcissus's footsteps on that one.

@Mudboy: I thought I'd been slacking!

Laney:D

I've slowed down on the objectives and played about with a sniper and a tau battlesuit. Here is the battlesuit (I'll take pics of the sniper tomorrow)...

Still VERY WIP...











C&C Welcome

Cheers Da Bank - the Alpha Legion are very cool - He's actually meant to be a loyalist (following the Dornian Heresy timeline rather than the Horus Heresy - very cool, with mutated Raven Guard, noble World Eaters, 'perfect' Emperor's Children, plague ridden Blood Angels, Soul Bound (Blinded) Thousand Sons and separatist Ultramarines to name a few).

Mudboy - The battlesuit is very much a FW model - bought for coolnes (I have no idea if it is actually any good or not!).

Gatlag - The Macross stuff is very cool - so a comparison is pretty good - cheers (I used to play the Robotech RPG when I was at University).

Here's the finished Tau Battlesuit and a IG sniper (the flash has made him look very shiny). I've really enjoyed the Tau Suit paintjob (I might need to do a couple more of these - stealth suits in a similar scheme would be ace)...

The Sniper...







Tau Battlesuit...

Thanks Da Bank - I'm quite proud of the battlesuit, the sniper I'm pleased with, but I have too many now - so I thought I'd add another (It's been a while since I made a ghillie suit)... Still WIP













I'm also building a small squad of deathwatch...

Plasma Gunner





Heavy Bolter
