Ooooow exciting!!! My first attempt at a into video for my Youtube account.

Hi guys,

Exciting news, I've created my very first video for my newly created Youtube account. Please check it out and let me know what you think? I'm very keen for some constructive criticism and suggestions on how to improve this video and if you have any suggestions for a new video I'm always open to new idea :O)

Oh and if anyone can suggest a song, which is approximately 10 seconds long I'd love ya forever! I'm stumped at the moment which is why I must apologise in advance for the quality of the track I've selected at present.

Necron update - 27/10/2011

Hi guys, here's my first attempt at a repose of the standard Necron warrior:

My personal opinion is that there is no need for the lower half of the jaw so that was the first thing to go. Do they even speak? hmmm


I went for a slouched pose and repositioned the head to be much lower down in the chest.


Both arms were split at the elbows and allowed to straighten to try and position the gauss flayer at arms length. I failed a little here and hopefully the next conversion will work out better?

As shown above and below I have tried to illustrate the next phase of my modifications. I intend on sculpting additional spine features, which will continue down the entire length of the spinal column and over the top of the shoulders down to the head..


Next I will sculpt new shoulder pads, similar to the existing Immortals perhaps?

NECRONS!!!!!!!

Hi guys,

As I'm sure everyone and their wives know, the Necron are about to grace us with their presence as I must say I'm completely, utterly, 100% sold. So much so that I'm going to take the plunge and make Necron my second personal army after my Serpent Guard........only after I've sold off the Grey Knights though so I need to get cracking that whip and self flagellate myself into overdrive.

In preparation for the arrival of the new amazing miniatures I delved into the darkest depths of my bitz box to find a selection of Necrons as shown below:


I've had these chappies for probably over a decade now. Having never really been taken with the design of the standard warrior and how they do not reflect the sheer awesomeness of the artwork portrayed in the codex I thought it might be interesting to undertake a small project and see if I could convert this humble miniature into something like the following?:


I'm confident that with some cuts here or there, a little bit of plasticard, a heavy application of Chiaroscuro painting technique and some of my latest top secret medium I will be able to produce something similar to the above? I can't promise that all these minis will survive the surgery but trial and error has never been the most efficient of proccesss now has it!  :O)

Grey Knight update - 23/10/2011

Hi guys,

I've been working on the Storm Raven this week. I'm getting close to finishing the initial paint work and I'm almost ready to start the fun task of applying the weathering and battle damage  :D

The following is my first attempt at making a video of a miniature.

Hopefully this will be the start of a regular feature I'll be uploading to this blog and eventually a YouTube profile?  :O)




Let me know what you think.

Grey Knight Update - 12/10/11

Ok,

Here is a snap shot of the storm raven as of last thing yesterday before the day light died on me  :O(


I'm looking for inspiration as to what to paint on all that lovely flat canvas? If anyone has any ideas why not put a comment below?  I'll be painting all the usual hazard warning symbols around such areas as the doors and hurricane bolters but I definitely think this wonderful model needs a bit of free hand to make it pop?

Serpent Guard Update - 12/10/11

Hi guys,

Here's a quick update on the progress of the Serpent Guard:


This is the unit of chosen which will be riding in the latest rhino I've been working on. There has not been allot of work been put into these guys yet and I haven't tried them out in the game so far but I'm hopeful that these infiltrating / outflanking chappies will be able to distract the enemy long enough so that my greater daemon and winged princes can get in at least one round of combat?

Serpent Guard update - 04/10/2011

Hi guys,

I've been away for the last five days so not much has gone on painting wise. I do however have a W.I.P shot of the chosen / possessed transport though:


I wanted the colour scheme for the two serpents to be slightly different from the other rhinos to differentiate between the troop and elite dedicated transport.

I'll crack on with the painting of this final rhino later tonight and should have something for you tomorrow.

belated Apocalypse game photos

Hi all,

A few weeks ago a couple of mates and I went down the road to Warhammer World and took part in a quite large game of Apocalypse. Here are some photos from the day:

 A light bite for breakfast!

Where did he put it all is what I want to know?! 









Sadly I didn't take any photos past turn one but the forces of Chaos beat back the forces of the Imperium, only just though. If my memory serves me well Lysander poopy pants almost took out the titan by himself! hahahaha
