Hey Guys,

Along with my Coven Raider Conversion I have also been working on the rest of my Covenite army, they are the Artisans Envy.

Here are some pictures of them so far (all of them are a work in progress)

All of my Coven force so far:




One of my Talos:



My Grotesque Conversions:



Of course C&C is very welcome! Thanks for looking! Smile

Really digging it!
Your Taloi look very good, with the unique dorsal attachments and the smooth armour.
Your Wrack that seems to have been promoted to Haemonculus? Also very awesome!
Only critique i could offer would be that the skin in some parts looks a bit bland, for example on the Grotesque conversions, like it's lacking highlights and/or glaze.
If that's because of WIP, just ignore me Laughing

Thanks! yeah one has been promoted (This was before the plastic haemy was available).

On the skin; I can see what you mean, and I think that bland look could be in some part due to the dodgy camera, but I like my Coven to look pale and dirty, so I wasn't planning on highlighting them much or at all. I will however have a long hard look at them tonight and see if they could do with a little Smile

Thanks for your comments! Smile

Here's some closeups of the grotesques I took last night, not sure if these have come out less 'bland' Smile













Cheers!

Hey guys, I decided that the hand (or lack thereof) on the grotesques was not right and so inspired by the Ork Painboy model I have made some proper gauntlets for them:

sweet! i kinda did something similar only on Wraithblades as proxy for grotesques but, sadly, without the extra tubes you made, i think i'll have to steal that idea Wink

Ps.: Did anyone ever tell you that you totally look like kevin owens from wwe?

I have been looking for some old photos but can't seem to find them as I changed phones, though here is my first video on them where I go through the method of doing their backs:

Seeing so much Talos together is disturbing on so many levels :')

Great work (conversions & painting), and amazing themed army, I really like your color sheme.

Keep on the good work Wink
