Love the blue shading on the Incubi mask. Can't wait for your Wracks! (I do have a soft spot for the ugly bastards!)

Great work!

And I can't believe no one else has commented on the ponies. I laughed so hard I snorted.

GAR - Thank you.

Evil Space Elves - Thank you too! And yes, I think I will really enjoy painting the wracks - I am thinking a bit about painting their flesh in a somewhat green tint, a little like gretchin green or something, to fit with the shadow phoenix theme.

Drago Galizur - Ah, I'm glad someone noticed and mentioned them. When I have greenstuffed a space mare, I'll show it here to you Cool

Oh and as I mentioned earlier, I should have a blaster warrior finished quite soon, so just wait a little.

Quite a big update, first we have the blaster warrior I mentioned (his blaster is second-hand Wink ):



Next is some wracks of the Hex Coven, who is also on Archon's Challenge - should have my haemonculus done relatively soon:



Two crewmen from the ravager:



And finally the second Venom, which I got from Santa's Secret Space Raid (will most likely hold Trueborn):

My first reaction to the green skin was "Gross!". In other words, it's perfectly disgusting. Well done!

I think the wracks need an off set or nutral colour to break up the model a little - the technique is nice but i would prefer more contrast

@Evil Space Elves - Thank you. Gretchin Green is a very nice colour for painting disgusting models.

@Massaen - Oh? Any suggestion for what colour to use, if so? As you may see the Acothyst holds a red agonizer, thought that gave a bit of contrast at least...

edit: It shall be a red 'niser, not a green...

Not sure... there just seems to be alot of green tint on the wracks... IMO it needs some little touches of black/brown/grey or similar to break it up...

one of the schemes i first considered was black w/green drastic highlights. or purple w/green... or dark shiny blue w/green+electric blue. wasnt so sure about black w/green but youve done well. i still really llike the idea of dark shiny blue w/green+blue tho....

like the shading on the vyper. nice!

the wracks go off, if you do add more colour break it up little maybe but dont change. perhaps thin orky flesh wash? that flesh has lots of texture to bring out, like twiggies or beef jerky... What a Face

I'll consider that, it's not a that bad idea.

Okay, here's finally an update: The Ravager is finished! It was a mess to paint it, but it feels very good now that I'm done Wink





Not sure what to do next, probably paint the trueborn's venom, or convert some sort of talos/cronos/minos. Saw a very nice converted pain engine I might take inspiration from.

Being a Japanafile, and having lived for two years in a village that worshiped the creature and paraded him around in their festivals, I am a BIG FAN of the tengu Very Happy

I also like the modifications you made on the Slyth.

No, not Tengu, but another pretty cool guy (whom I dunno how much I am gonna use, as the Dusk Knight count as him, but he was pretty fun both converting and painting): Drazhar!





...For some inscrutable reason, only the first picture was relatively good. So, think of the scheme in the first one when looking at the three others, ok?

awesome, I love the picture of Drazhar in the codex and I'm considering doing my own conversion of him at some point when my skills have developed a bit.
Two very enthusiastic thumbs up!
Congrats on the archon's challenge win too!

I am loving your work so far.
As for your Drazhar model... affraid He is really well modelled and well painted. I think what I like most about him, however, is the silver helmet. It really conveys his age, and the fact that he may very well be Arhra.

You have done a super job! Very Happy

Keep up the good work.

@The_Burning_Eye: Thanks, will then be interesting to see how your version will look indeed.

@Cavash: Thank you too. Yes, I liked the idea of his helmet as well; figured that would probably fit well with his shadowy armour suit.

Next thing to be painted, should either be the second Venom, or Tengu (very happy about that I chose red as the second colour, since his mask is supposed to be red).


Oh, and a different thing - not very connected to this army, but atill - I recently traded a FW Toad Dragon, for a game!

I really like our version! The conversion looks natural and flows well. Great work Evil or Very Mad

Thanks!

Here I have a WIP Venom, which I got as a gift during the Secret Santa Raid (the gunner should be finished soon):

Going back a couple of months to your Wracks, I may well steal the colour scheme for my Haemonculi. My Kabal has a purple theme to them so i think the green on the Coven models would be a nice contrast.

@Tiresias & Chaeril - Thanks a lot, both of you!

Here I have something new finished, the gift I got from the global gift exchange; the venom of my Shadow Phoenix Blasterborn!





Also, I have begun on my last Incubi, and Tengu has (finally) earned his tempest fan.

Sweet Venom. Seems I am not in the minority of just opting to go for closed matte glass canopy. After the horrible pain I went through to paint it and glue it on my Razorwing (so easily to screw up the nice paintjob with glue), never again am I going with a transparent onel

Yes, I really know what you mean; trying to glue on transparent canopies are seriously appaling.

Now I will go and glue some new kabalites together - what special equipment do you think they should have?

If you don't have any with Shredders, I'd say two or so with them would be pretty good just for the heck of it. I've found them to be not so shabby in 10 man anti-infantry kabalite squads with a Splinter Cannon among them. I personally really hate putting that one blaster in, because it splits their role too much and I usually have a decent amount of darklight already. It's really more of a fluffy choice, I simply love the monomolecular net imagery and I bet the Dark Kin love to watch as their victims slice themselves apart.

Makes me wish Eldar Warp Spiders didn't suck, as fluffwise they are incredibly awesome.
