Hokay. So.

I haven't been making that much time for modeling of late, so in was determined to put in one solid night on it this week while taking in the Tolkien Cut of the three Hobbit films (seek it out if you haven't seen it!).

I really needed to get some more work done on the Silent Hill Talos commission, but all the finicky drilling and pinning of the spider legs left me wholly uninspired. It felt like annoying busy work standing between me and adding some real character to the model.

I was complaining to Brother Pink about it, and he---ever the modeling angel/devil on my shoulder posed me the following challenge:

Spoiler:
 

He knows well both my uninspired procrastination and my predilections for garishly-coloured J-wear.

What's more, the challenge actually worked! Behold! The first stage of the Silent Hill talos legs IS DONE!

Now we can get to the fun stuff Smile

@Mr_Pink I probably should put some sketches together, though getting thoughts down in pictorial form has always been complex.

As for descriptions and concepts of my Agony Engines, that I can supply! Annoyingly I'm currently waiting on orders coming in so I've not been able to actually start building anything, but my far too lengthy descriptions of ideas can be found here in the Project Logs, under Agony Engines. Smile

Likewise I agree the Talos is a wonderful model, beautiful as the model built from the box and incredibly convertable as well!

As for the Vargheist, Crypt Horror, Crypt Ghoul confusion, you are indeed correct I have been using about 4-6 of the small ghouls for each Grotesque, some mediocre photos are in my project log - now I have my camera once more I can try and get some better ones, but representatives of most of my Grotesques are present.

Also an actual question for you rather than my needless verbal perambulation. Do you rely on a hand drill for your pinning or do you have a variety of screwthreaded implements? Also I've heard such good things about the Silent Hill series and this seems like something that suits your proclivities when it comes to the truly disturbing. Whilst parts of the process are inevitably painfully dull the end result I'm sure will be worth it.... please please don't quote this at me next time I mention how much I despise painting.

Ho Dear. It has been a while, hasn't it.

Blah blah blah fell out of the hobby blah blah blah real life got a little weird in the summer blah blah blah had this commission backing me up...

You know the drill.

However, I have work to share, so I guess I should get to it.

Remember that pregnant spider lady thing I was rattling on about? The Silent Hill Homecoming Amnion Talos I was creating for one of our forum members?

Well, she's done Twisted Evil

Coven of the Unmarred - Page 4 DSC_1338_1014-ANIMATION

And with her I have finally completed my first-ever 100%-scratchbuilt model! affraid
(Yes. I know. That tail is not scratchbuilt, but I still feel accomplished Evil or Very Mad )

Despite thinking the legs would be a breeze, they needed a good deal of finicky work, and, as is par for the course with me, I probably severely undercharged for the amount of work that went into this beasty.

BUT NO MATTER. She is now complete, and that means that I can, once again, start dedicating time to my own projects  Twisted Evil

Here are some more photos. Let me know what you all think of her:

Thanks folks! And Squidmaster, thank you for saying she's close to the source material. I am often my toughest critic, so I have eyes only for the places where she deviates from the source.

Benth3bear, I'm really excited to see her painted. I'm such a slow/disinterested painter, and, as far as I know, my last client never did paint the wracks and Grots I made for him, so it will be good to see something painted!

Hey now mr. Pink I haven't painted them because I don't want to ruin them. Lots of planning and testing before I put paint on a model like that.

ACK! NO! Koshi! That wasn't intended for you! I meant my original Grots and wracks that I posted to start this thread. They were a big commission for someone from Warpshadow, but, as far as I know, he's never painted them.

That being said, I'd love to see your raid items painted as well Wink

SNEAK, SNEAK, SNEAK!

A while back, I posted my initial stabs at Mandrakes converted to better fit the coven, based on the idea that young cronos parasites could play the role of Mandrakes.

I've now finished the rest of the members of this squad, and I wanted to share them with the Dark City:

Coven of the Unmarred - Page 4 1001_0998%2525E6%25259A%252588

This also includes the completion of the Night-Haunter-emerging-from-an-actual-shadow:

Coven of the Unmarred - Page 4 1001_1047%2525E6%25259A%252588

I'm glad to have realized the concept of mandrakes emerging from shadows, but I'm now a little concerned that this model is WAY shorter than his compatriots :/

Here is the whole lot of them, beside their partially-painted cousin.
Coven of the Unmarred - Page 4 1001_1048%2525E6%25259A%252588

They look pretty rag-tag right now, but I'm hoping once I hit them with the same paint scheme (particularly if I can make some shadowy airbrushing happen), it will bring them together.

They're also DEAD SIMPLE models to bash out if you've got some pink horrors, a tentacle roller, and some spare torsoes lying around, so I'll probably make some more and encourage anyone who likes them to do likewise  Wink

I love these things. I still love the one that ended up on my door step. Really cool. Wish I had pink horrors so I can make him some friends.
Still my favorite thing you have created Pink

Woah! Awesome! Thanks, Koshi Very Happy
This week my airbrush showed up, so the Mandrakes have become its first official victims. I'm still trying to work out the colour scheme to give the best impression of them as ethereal living shadows.
Coven of the Unmarred - Page 4 1444353364176%25257E2

If your mandrake REALLY needs some friends, I might be able to make you a couple more Mandrakes to go along with him Wink


Last week I shared the young adults and the little brothers in the hideous Cronos parasite family. This week I wanted to share my work on the BIG KAHUNA!

Coven of the Unmarred - Page 4 1001_0999%2525E6%25259A%252588

A long while back I shared my ideas on making a better Cronos that wasn't just a couple of bits swaps with the very nice Talos kit. The Cronos is a Parasite Engine, which sucks peoples souls. That kind of thing sounds really horrific to me, so I wanted to make a really horrific Cronos.

My idea was a twisted, nightmare creature that always hungers for more souls, but I still wanted it to be identifiable as having come from the Talos kit.

Here's what I came up with:

Coven of the Unmarred - Page 4 1001_1014-ANIMATION

...and I couldn't be happier. He came out, pretty much, exactly as I'd hoped. The only thing he's missing is a victim whose soul he's sucking, but I figure I can add that later. I wanted to ride the momentum of having finished the model, and I know I'm notorious for drawing out projects by adding "just one more thing."

Coven of the Unmarred - Page 4 1001_1032
Coven of the Unmarred - Page 4 1001_1033
Coven of the Unmarred - Page 4 1001_1013

People familiar with this log might remember the Punchbowl Of Souls I was creating on the Cronos' back. The idea was that the souls captured by the beast stick around and writhe just below the surface of its flesh. Here's the final punchbowl:

Coven of the Unmarred - Page 4 1001_1031
Coven of the Unmarred - Page 4 1001_1030

I had thought to have his most recently devoured soul descending from that spinal column extending over the punchbowl, but Brother Pink suggested that might make things a little too cluttered, particularly when it came time to paint.

As I wanted this Cronos to look like an evolution of my Mandrakes, I gave him some mandrake-style, carven tattoos along the side of his torso.

Coven of the Unmarred - Page 4 1001_1011
Coven of the Unmarred - Page 4 1001_1009

They also serve the purpose of obscuring the mechanical talos sockets in those areas. In general, I tried to cover over most instances of the mechanical bits on the Talos model to give the impression this was a more organic creature.

Since he's meant to be one big soul sucker, I figured that one gaping maw was not enough, so I added another one to his chest, and then two more on the palms of his distended, grasping claws for good measure.

Coven of the Unmarred - Page 4 1001_1005
Coven of the Unmarred - Page 4 1001_1004%2525E6%25259A%252588

I couldn't be happier with the end model, and he's come out pretty much exactly as I'd hoped.

Coven of the Unmarred - Page 4 1001_1008%2525E6%25259A%252588

Hope you kids like him Very Happy

Thanks Squiddy! Of all the stuff I've made lately, this is the one thing I'm most happy about, so I'm glad it works as a Cronos for other people and doesn't look to OTT.

And don't get jelly: get even! Take this as inspiration for making your own nightmarish cronos!

Though the Cronos feels like my favourite model yet, I did come up with something yesterday while just messing around that I'm super excited about:
Coven of the Unmarred - Page 4 IMG-20151009-WA0001%25257E2

The cutest little Dark Eldar Jetfighter You've ever seen! This is very preliminary work on representing Coven Reavers as wrack-scale Talos. More on that soon!

I would flip the weapon pods around. You going to have a pilot on it or remote controlled?

Since this will be representing a Reaver, I wanted to make the skyboard weapons pods look more like additional thrusters—hence why I mounted them pointing backwards.

As much as I'd love to have the thing remote controlled because I think it looks pretty good like this, the micro razorwing (TM) needs to be a little more Covenified, so I will have a wrack pilot fused into its fuselage on the underside, and he will have the normal reaver underslung splinter rifle mounted at his waist.
