Ah so a Vanguard right? Apparently one of the worst choices in the book. Still, they definitely look cool.

What Chapter is he gonna be from?

I made it just for fun. He's not for actual games.

I already painted him. Fire Angels scheme, I think.

I needed a musician for my Greatswords and the idea was to convert a drummer, but then I saw "The other side of the coin" diorama.
And I went for the bagpipes. I've finally found a way to use those two trumpets from the Greatswords box.

My IoB Griffon finally arrived... Now I'm going to turn it into an Empire Griffon.

Are they worth it though? The model would be stunning but generals of the empire are better on foot, unless hes not your general, which for what they cost is probable
Tis but a scratch...

No it's not worth of it, but I like fluffy lists and modelling challenges... :D

I've started working on my Nurgle daemon prince conversion.
I'm using a few chaos giant parts and stuff but I'm going to sculpt at least 70% of the model by myself...

I took a few pictures with a chaos warrior for comparison.


So is he worthy to call himself a Daemon prince?
I'm not sure if if he's tall enough. Right now, he's approx. 2.5x bigger than the chaos warrior.

That's probably about fifteen feet tall, which I'd say was big enough. Honestly, I think GW have started making too many things too big, a lot of the newer monsters are so big it looks silly.

I've sculpted the basic shape of his torso and shoulders and parts of legs using milliput yellow-grey.
Yellow-grey is really cheap and works really well for sculpting large parts of models, but it's not that good when it comes to smoothing surfaces and sculpting details.
I'll probably need something better for the final layer of the skin. Probably ProCreate gray stuff. It works like a charm on skin surfaces.
The only downside is that I only had a small sample of ProCreate, and that stuff is expensive.

Can't believe I haven't done this already...

Have I done this already?

Anyway, you'll have to excuse the photo quality but here's two of my more impressive paint jobs. I'll have to see if I can get Duke Dev to post a picture of his Roane Colonel I converted too. For anyone whose interested, the Roane are an Imperial Guard regiment based off the Australian Armed Forces in the Gaunt's Ghosts books.

I like your Bretonnian army general... The pose is really dynamic and he's actually standing on the base, which is great. I just can't stand those transparent plastic rods for flying units.

Thanks Silver.

The entire shield is freehand by the way. Pain in the ass but I think it was probably worth it. Might try and find my sister's DE Corsair standard bearer. I did a big stormy seascape scene on the banner.

EDIT* Oh and yeah the rock. ;) All my Peg Knights are leaping/rearing on some sort of scenery on the base. I also absolutely loathe flying bases. They never stay whole so I figured, screw it. They even look sorta cheap if you think about it. They need to stay absolutely pristine to look any good, and I'm a bit of a messy gluer, so I think the scenery was a good replacement. Glad you approve. :D

Anyway, I'm sorry about the picture quality though guys. They actually look considerably better in real life. :(

I'd like to see your WoT stuff Jubal. Out of curiosity, what does WoT stand for?

^ This little skirmish game, it's a really fun and rather random little setting (suffers a bit from Meyer nicking the name, alas; no sparkly Vampires included!)
