Hey as promised, updates, will only be completed stuff from now on.
With any luck you good chaps and chapette’s will be seeing some actual articles in the near future bye SinSynn of HoP, as he has loosly agreed to do a couple of guest articles to keep things ticking over while I paint my fingers down to raw bloody stumps….
Also there is a shiny banner in the pipeline, I’ll keep ya posted.
I wanted to do these in one go as there were only five, plus it’ll give me an incentive to do the Archon now his escort is all done (he got sprayed today) I managed to get these done in between much RL faffing start to finish in one day, if I can keep doing a squad in one or two sessions and a vehicle in a similar amount of time, should be well on track for ToS
In terms of the army I have everything but the Razorwing basecoated neatly in 4 flat colours, I have a squad of Truebon plus their ride and the Incubyebye’s complete, and up next for completetion is the Byebyemobile followed by the Archon.
A filler article on my ToS list is likely to follow in the week.
Bye Bye for now.
Really beautiful work you have there. I can’t wait to see what you do for the Archon! What method did you use for the glow effect?
I need to know everything about the recipe you used for Lelith’s skin.
Mind is blown away!
H.Mann, the glow is just a standard OSL technique as far as I am aware, had to mix the green up by eye.
Lauby – Leliths skin is fairly simple in terms of recipe, its the application that makes it look good, Essentially ,base is a flat clean deneb stone, wash with watery elf flesh, then use very light purple ink shading where the skin would be softest/thin. Highlights are Deneb stone with enough purple in it to just subtly change the hue then add succesive amounts of white and blend , do not go right up to hard white !!
Lol, Lelith has already been posted was hoping she would not detract from the Incubi *sad face*
Not sold on the horns, need to see them irl to judge them properly, but i think you could do better…
also whats with the low res photos? the enlarged versions need to be nearly twice as big for accurate assesment..
oh and the basing needs to be sorted out.. you need to miliput over the slottabase bits on the bases or use some fine grain sand otherwise at things like tos you will get marked down for wank basing.
Its only lower res to fit onto main post, you can just click it to see the full size version, to have any chance of getting this done some corners have been cut , yes, the slotta thing is just not visible on the table, if these were deamon entries it would be a promlem.
The horns are like that to avoid introducing another colour, iz partly to keep the pseudo monochrome thang and partly because I thought they could be volcanic glass or alien.
For something I pushed out in a single day I’m gairly pleased really, sure they could be better but speed of production is a consideration for me at the moment.
im talking about the expanded photos.. the psuedo thumbnail ones on the blog are fine.. but when you click on them they dont become that much bigger.. for 5 model pictures id be hoping for about twice the size..
ill pass proper judgement on the horns irl.. atm they just look like glossed black and i think you could have either kept them matte and highlighted them nicely or used the deneb that is already in your pallete to break up the top half of the model a bit more..
my example for this would be your true borns dark lance man whos pasty head still looks like it fits in with the unit and overall theme despite the rest having fish bowls for faces.
Weird, blows up to three or four times actual size here, plenty big enough, twice that again would be massive…. They are just glossed black, I thought about deneb horns but opted against for reasons ill explain in person.
Well i think they look quality mate. i wish i could blast out a squad of that quality in a day. another triumph for the shard!! must admit, wasn’t a huge fan of the bases at first but they have grown on me. they look evil!!! good work buddy. Lorenzen, you suck!! ;p haha.
nah you suck ryan.. im just being the naysmith that shardyboy needs to get his space queers done to a high standard..
i think once my silver army is out the way ill have to show him how its done with some templartasticness
and so the war begins ;p
Nice incubator you have here – it seems that they’re metal models after all…I recently bought a ShitCast Incubi out of interest and discovered worst casting EVER made by a human soul (let ’em burn forever for that) – even russian miniature-pirates are casting better resin models…and it’s not getting cheaper, I pay more for the absolutely horrific mould lines and bubbles, lightweight models – just fine. Not cast, though.
Mine were metals, I got them way back when they came out, my first Fin£ca$t model was the Vlad Von Carstein who’s head I removed for my Archon, If I had not only wanted the head I would have taken it back as the body was a travesty, loads of damage and missing detail and strange textures in places too, just horrible. To think he cost 25% more than he would have in metal a few weeks ago boggles the mind :S
