Hey fellow denizens,

it is I, Caspa'ar the thricefold execrated and I am here to bring you ascension beyond even your feeblest of dreams.....oooor a Painting Log!

I came back to Warhammer 40k a little while ago and as I sold almost all of my stuff (terrible mistake), I had to start at the bottom again.
The Haemonculi and the rest of the Coven always had a certain appeal to me. I know they are not the "fast-moving" glasscanons many see in the true kin, but I really like their background and the creepy looks.
So I chose them more from the background/model perspective, but of course rejoiced when I heard about the Coven-Supplement. I'll be focusing mostly on a fluff-army, but gonna try to be as competetive as this small frame allows me to be.
I'm gonna progress this Army in steps, beginning with a small 1000P Army. I'll try to keep the first post updated.

Cheers
Caspaar

Haemonculi 1 - almost finished converting! Smile only some minor things to finish up

I like your coven's name! It sounds pretty biblical.


Your wracks look nice too, I like how pallid their skin tones are, and you did a wonderful job on the blood. It looks like it's seeping out, fresh and thick! Not be creepy or anything!

You brought in life with the bronze detailing on the masks and guns without upsetting the overall bleak balance, which is beautiful! How did you get the skin to look like that? It looks like it might've had a purple wash of some kind...


Exciting to see a pure coven army! You should work on a snazzy coven glyph.

They're looking pretty awesome Caspaar, just the right amount of gore on the weapons i think. Tell me, did you base the flesh scheme on the God of War game or is it just a happy coincidence (looks great!)

Very nice caspaar. I really like the red inflamed skin you have going. it really contrasts nicely against the very pale skin. Overall painting and theme is great too Smile

Update!

Thanks everyone for the comments! I'll try to keep them coming, the next 5 are on their way

@Fidra:
Yeah it is a purple wash (Pallid Wych flesh, washed with watered down Druchi Violet, highlighted with Pallid Wych Flesh again, extrem highlight with white)

The name actually comes from german. We have a little archaic saying "dreifach vermaledeit", which I really like and yeah, I'm still trying to think of a "snazzy" Coven symbol Very Happy

@The_burning_eye:
Haha no, never played God of War...but now that you say it (and I googled God of War) you're right. There is a resemblance.

cheers

Well well, Caspar! First of, a very fitting avatar you have there ;-)

Nice to have you here and I'm looking forward to your progress! I guess I'll have to give you back your vehicles soon, as you seem to be up to your usual swiftness and skill as those wracks really look good!

Sláinte ;-)

Minor Update:

I'm planning to do my first 1000P Game tomorrow, so I mostly assembled stuff the last couple of days. Additionally, like a realy Haemoncolus, I have to experiment on lesser races to further my research (basically I'm painting marines for money, to buy Coven-Stuff Very Happy )

I'd love to get a closer/better lit look at that Grotesque since what you've shown so far looks GREAT, and everyone needs more/better options for Grot conversions.

Have a good game today!

Update time!! Been doing some work on my Grotesques, hope you like the prototype Smile

Thanks everyone!!! I got a bit of painting done this weekend!
I also played a couple of small games and recognised I need some Anti-tank, so I swapped the Venoms for Raiders Smile.

Better pictures will come, I cant find my cam at the moment Very Happy

cheers

Now that you have painted the grotesque, the head does not look that tiny anymore!
Really liking the progress.

Caspaar those look very cool indeed, making me want to go out and get lots of coven stuff (patience required, birthday in three weeks, vouchers and money incoming!)

Minor Update time!!

I started my first version of Caspa'ar! Funny story concerning his hair. I came home one evening (drunk as drunk can be) but instead of going to bed like the responsible me would do it, I started converting this Badboy. Drunk me thought I did really good, but sober me disagreed the next morning. The hair just was too 80s Wink. But I let drunk me have his way, did not change it and now it has really grown on me!

Moral of the story: Go try to convert something if you're really drunk Very Happy... I take no responsibillity for the results, though

@The_Burning_Eye: Thank you! Always nice to inspire other people to get more Coven Stuff. The Haemonculi have to stick together (or should i say "stitch together" Very Happy).


cheers

I don't want to encourage your drinking, but i think that head fits your Haemonculus much better than the model it's actually coming from.

small Update! I finished one Raider (I hate painting Vehicles, or to be more precise any large anorganic surface)

I had little painting done the last weeks. Real life took it's toll and I got hands on an alpha-access to Heroes of the Storm Embarassed ...but I promise I'll take up my brush more often!

@Marrath: Haha, thank you. I actually like the Dreadfleet-Master, except for the blade-leg.

Cheers
