Nurgle Defiler / Soul Grinder - Painting update

Here is the latest update on my Nurgle Defiler / Soul Grinder model.  I went through the same series of 5 washes on top of my high/low black/white primer.  I started with a black wash, followed by a green wash, dark green wash, brown wash, and back to a black wash.

Also started up a new Nurgle Sorcerer and 4 additional Plague Marines to give me two full squads of seven. Updates coming soon...

Blogger's Best #4

Blogger's Best is my ongoing series featuring the work of the most inspiring modelers and painters that I have come across recently, in order to share their work with others and to help support the individual blogs and artists. Personally much inspiration has been obtained from the daily hunts sifting through the blogs, and I felt obligated to pay a little homage in return.

This Blogger's Best may be a bit short on links, but that is only due to the fact that one person... eh hem (The Back 40K) created so much disgusting, they deserved to have four of their pics put up. 

Wh 40k Modelling Blog by Agis presents a beautiful dual wielding fallen Dark Angel Daemon Prince.

The Back 40K brought a big bowl of nasty to the table with his Dread, Rhino, Champion, and Daemon Prince.  Please check out all of these as they really offer quite a bit of inspiration.  Great stuff.

Eye of Error has a sick Lord to add to his Mariners Blight Army, still one of the most original looking armies out there.

Brovatar's Painting Blog delivers yet another outstanding paint job demonstrating his master skills on a beautiful squad of Salamanders.

Zen 40k  has a swamp themed Heavy Destroyer Necron that was too cool to pass up.

The Hobby Ambit has an original looking Battlewagon complete with woodchipper Deffrolla.

That's it for this Blogger's Best, will be back soon with painting updates for my Nurgle army and my second Ideal-Ideas featuring focusing on Obliterator conversions.

Great Unclean One / Ku'Gath / Greater Daemon - Painting update

Here is the latest update on my Great Unclean One / Ku'Gath / Greater Daemon model.  I went through a series of 4 washes on top of my high/low black/white primer.  I started with a black wash, followed by a green wash, dark, green wash, brown wash, and back to a black wash. 

I believe the colors are a bit washed out, maybe due to the lighting or bulb choice.  The actual model appears to be much greener than these pictures depict.  I am still trying to get my lighting and backdrop perfected.  I have been adding a bit more color to the back drop and have added a second light source for these shots.

Next step will be to add in the bone color for many of the spikes and appendages, followed by the metallic copper/bronze for the armor and weapons.  Updates to come...

Goff Nob Bikers - Deffkopta Conversions

Here are the early work in progress pics of my five Goff Nob Bikers.  Due to a shortage of wheels I decided to go for a snowmobile style front end, coupled with a triple barrel dakkagun replacement for the Deffkopta rokkits. I wanted the Painboy to stand out and have room for the Grot orderly so I decided for more of a swamp boat style bike with a side compartment for the Grot.

I still need to beef up the exhaust and add on the wargear... thinking about two power klaws, one or two big choppas, cybork, eavy armor, and some combi weapons.

Ideal-Ideas #1 - Spawn

This is the first of a new series covering the most creative and original conversions for a particular model. My goal from these series is to provide readers with several conversion concepts to give some inspiring ideas on the many different directions you can take in modeling.

Today we will be covering Chaos Spawns.  Due to their particularly inspiring fluff it seemed like an easy pick.

On a recent post covering my latest Plague Spawn update, I asked for users to submit their own creations.  While the response was somewhat limited, the quality was top notch.  To help fill out the rest of the article I had go searching for a few additional entries.  Hope these inspire.

Well, that it is for first Ideal-Ideas.  Hopefully this will bring a wide variety of inspirational ideas to all.  Send in more spawn pics if you got them, maybe I can do a follow up article as well.  Next month will cover Obliterators, so keep the submission coming...

Send me your Obliterator conversions

I am writing up a new series called Ideal-Ideas featuring a large collection of converted  miniatures for a specific model.   Looking for Obliterators, so send me your links, pics, or good intentions and I will be featuring them soon.

These articles should help to show a wide variety of modeling and converting ideas to help inspire some creative thinking.

Here is the latest update on my Nurgle Obliterators.  The modeling is all finished, and added the last bit of dremmel drill weathering and sand for the final touches.  They are now ready for primer.  Can' wait to start dipping these in paint with the rest of the Nurgle forces I have been working on.

Nurgle Defiler, modeling and base coat finished

All the final touches were completed on my Nurgle Defiler / Soul Grinder.  The last bit of weathering and sand were applied to the model in order to give it that nice disgusting look.  Also new to this update is the completed lower mouth section.  I really feel this helps out the overall look of the model as well as helping to add a bit of putrid girth to the lower half.

I will begin the dipping process this week, along with the rest of my Nurgle models so will hopefully have some actual painting updates coming soon...

Ku'Gath / Great Unclean One / Summoned Greater Daemon, modeling and base coat finished.

So the modeling portion is finally finished and the primer has been applied.  I went with a different technique this time and tried a base coat of black, followed by a coat of white, which was mostly done from the top to provide a more natural lighting and shading effect.  Time will tell, and once the washes start going on I should be able see the cause and effect. 

I only did a bit more weathering, base work, and sculpting the on the front two feet since my last update, but over all am happy with the final result.
