Hello fellow Archons/Succubi/Haemonculi,

This PLOG is where I will be posting my army pics as I paint them up.

A little background: I first started hobbying 21 years ago when I discovered 2nd edition 40k. At some point, I made a switch over to fantasy, which I stuck to until it's untimely demise (Tzelok on the Druchii forum, Artius on the Bretonnian forums). I was in a hobby deadzone for a couple years, but with the new edition of 40K, my original gaming group is now all back on the same game.

So I went a little crazy....I bought about 5K pts worth of minis...and an airbrush (waiting for the compressor to arrive before I can play with that)...and I got to work!

One note - I realize my pictures are pretty terrible quality, I tried making a light box but fear I used too small a box. Bare with me until I can figure out a replacement for it - I will replace the pics as I can.



Kabalite Warriors




Trueborn




Archon





My current WIP is some scourges - hopefully by the time I am finished with them I will have my airbrush compressor and can get started on some venoms/raiders/razorwings.

Feedback welcome!

bounce love em! Dark, sinister, yet not purely black. Good choice of colours.

I like them. The blue armor of the warriors contrasts nicely with the orange rust on the bases. I would maybe clean up the lip of the bases where the wash has spilled over to make the whole model look a little crisper. Other than that, a gang of great looking guys! Looking forward to the scourges.

Thanks guys!

@Scrz - great minds think alike! I ended up painting the base sides black since I took the photos initially!

After getting steamrolled with the busiest month I've had at work ever (it's still happening but I'm chipping away 1 hr a night) I finally finished the scourges! I really am liking how they turned out - especially the little vials of liquid near the wings, which I painted with complete inspiration from the "Dark City" image at the top of the page.








I am now working towards painting a 2K tournament list, next steps are some assembly:
10x Incubi
Succubus
3 x Ravagers
4 x Raiders
Venom

Once those are done, I need to paint all of that plus about 9 warriors and 10 wyches....I have 45 days to do so, which should be ample time if I can not let work bleed into my personal life.

I've also recently purchased a full airbrush setup, so hopefully that will help expedite my basecoats and enable me to do some cool stuff on the vehicles! Stay tuned!

Very nice color scheme, and nice bases too.
Very nice work on paintings too =)

I'm just a little upset with scourges bases, it just doesn't feels right :p

Thank you! Yea, I couldn't think how else to make the standard bases I was using work with the bits the scourges are standing on - I thought this worked ok Razz

Hmmm, here's an idea. If you chop up some spare bits of sprue into different sizes, put some 'chips' into them with clippers and scatter a few on the base (perhaps with some smaller bits of sand/rubble) it'll look like there's a steel floor with bits of stone rubble crumbling over it Smile should be pretty quick and easy to do as well (not to mention cheap!)

Yeah, you can also "cover" with thin plastic sheets, and paint 'em metal.
And/or add tubes.

They are so many solutions here ^^.

Great ideas, thanks guys! I'll probably do a hybrid - I read this last night as I was putting together my incubi and saved all the sprues. This will probably take a back seat to getting the rest of the army ready, as I am worried about making it in time for the tourney, but it's 1st on my list of to-do's once everything has some paint on it.

So, work basically ruined my chances of getting done for the tournament. I've decided not to stress about it but just paint what I can - and last night was the first night I ever got to use my airbrush.

I'm pretty happy with the result, not sure what colour I want to use for my "tribal markings" and this isn't quite done, but its a good start!

All done on the venom, now started on 4 raiders and 3 ravagers:





This was a learning experience, I laid the paint on a bit thick on certain areas etc - but I'm actually quite happy with the outcome.

In priming/basecoating the raiders, I've realized I have already learned much better trigger control - I'm starting to get crazy ideas that I can actually finish everything in time for the tournament.

Tournament is on Sept 17th....I still have to paint:
4 Raiders
3 Ravagers
9 Warriors
10 Wyches
10 Incubi
4 razorwing flocks

So it's been awhile since I last posted - I ended up getting close but not fully painted for the tourney (unfortunately).

I did have a great time (despite having to fight papa smurf thrice) and won 2, tied 1, and lost 2. But apparently I'm fun to play against cuz I got this!



Anyways, a bit of a hobby update: I've been chipping away at the raiders and crew for what seems to be a lifetime, but am benching them for now as I am thinking of a new tourney list and it doesn't have any raiders. Pic dump below of what I have been working on thus far:

Venom with Crew:



Raiders/Ravagers:

Shame you won't be using your raiders as much in the future since they look incredibly good!

Thanks Lord Asvaldir! Actually my test game went horrifically so two raiders found their way back onto the list after all!
