Tower of terror: Chaos Bastion finished

Greetings all.

My uncharacteristically productive streak continues. I've finished of my Chaos Bastion (in Word Bearer colours):

It was a bit of a tedious beast to paint, but I'm pleased with the results. The textured paint worked really well and gives it a much more non-Imperial feel, and the skulls around the doorframe were worth the time it took (forever, btw). Also, how badass does it look against that background?? Chaos reigns!

As it stands, this is the only model I have in Word Bearer colours, but I intend to change that in the future (more daemons first though, must stay focussed...).

Comments are welcome :)

Great balls of fire: Flamers of Tzeentch

Greetings all.

As promised, I have another little update for you.

I got three old school Flamers of Tzeentch painted up for the occasional summoning:

These were just a quick paint job, but I'm happy enough with them. I do like the weird original Tzeentch sculpts, before things went all shiny and Egyptian.

Comments welcome chaps (and chapettes).

Magic markers part 2

Greetings all.

It seems like forever since I posted... I think it's important that I rectify that right this minute.

I've actually got quite a bit done recently, but most of it still has a few bits left to finish, so no pics just yet. I have however got a pic of some more familiars that I got painted the other day:

For those of you that play 40k, these guys will be used to represent (from left to right) the psychic powers "Iron Arm", "Invisibility", and "Shrouding".

Painting progress... kinda

Greetings all.

Managed to squeeze in a few hours painting last night and get some work done on my chaos bastion. So much work has gone into this so far, and it's still miles away from being finished :S

I decided on a dark red and silver colour scheme, with gold detailing, as a reference to the coolest Chaos Legion (oh yeh, that's Word Bearers, hands down). This will be the scheme of my CSM when I final get round to it, so I thought I'd get some practice in now. Plus, if anyone is going to be hanging out with a bunch of gribbly daemons, it's the Word Bearers. In the meantime, I'll also be using it to hide Fateweaver behind, so he doesn't get hammered by first turn Eldar shooting... So I wanted to keep in fairly generic and "undivided".

Not much to see just yet. I've been getting the basic colours on, then going on to do the detailing and tidying up later on. You can also see that I've finished putting all those damn skulls around the doorway.

Comments welcome!

Hobby update (I'm still alive!)

Greetings all.

I realise I've been a little quiet of late, despite a flurry of updates just before that. Just thought I'd drop in to let you know that a) I'm still alive and well, and b) that I have in fact been rather busy with hobby stuff. Prepare yourselves for something of a picture dump... I've got my fingers in many pies at the moment, frantically assembling and working on various things just to get them off my "to do" list (and on to my "to paint" list...).

Here we go:

The last of the Screamers are assembled, finally. They're a gigantic pain in the arse to assemble, so I'm glad they're done! That's three more for each unit (pink and blue if you've been following).

More classic familiars for psychic power effects. From left to right: Iron Arm, Enfeeble, Shrouding, Invisibility.

Some cool Realm of Chaos era Flamers for summoning.

A trio of horrors to boost up my existing units. I love the expression of the little guy on the left.

Three Nurgle spawn for when I get the momentum/time to get on with the CSM portion of my army.

Chaos Bastion. Quite a lot of work has gone into this already, though it may not show yet. I shaved off the icons of the false emperor (a right pain btw), and covered the lot in textured paint. I've also added a sprinkling of Chaos icons, and am in the process of adding a whole bunch of skulls around the door frame. That's the bit of the project I *kinda* wish I hadn't started, as it seems to be taking forever, but I think it'll be worth it at the end.

Right, that's me. Comments welcome of course!
