Really good looking stuff yet again, you've taken the work you did on your venom and adapted it nicely to the different style of the hellions, I especially like the faded out skull on your helliarch.
What I would say about your take on the gang though is that one of the first things you hear about gangs is their gang colours/markings. That's not to say that they're completely uniform, but there is a unifying theme through either colouring or imagery.

Thanks. The girl on the board with the skull is not actually a Helliarch. She is just the coolest member of the unit so far. But you are not the first to think that she is the unit leader, so when I get around to doing the real helliarch I have to remember to make him/her cooler that that... Cool

And your thougths on gang colours/markings is interesting. And true. I'll see what I can do. Some kind of unifying marking would look nice.

think it's the skyboard that gives it away, it's noted in the intructions as the helliarch skyboard. That and she was at the front of the unit. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with that's cooler than that!

Nothing i can say. I usually say sarcastic things, or i usually say things that get on the nerves of others. But i cant do that here. Really, really nice job. Love the venom and the rose you painted, even on the banner, though i dont like warriors.

Very nice.

Another unit of Kabalite warriors done!


This time it is a five man squad with a blaster. They will usually be riding in the venom.


Close-up of the team leader (not a sybarite) and the blaster.

They look pretty much like the previous unit, but in this case, that is a good thing. After the latest stunt Citadel colour pulled I decided to switch to some other brand (mostly on general principle). So on these models one of the red colours, three of the green colours, one of the skintones and one of the metal colour have been replaced with Coat d'Arms.

Another great squad done.
The colours you are using now work really well. They do seem to capture the grimdark nature of 40k very well.

Anyway, great job.

the greens on the weapons and base grass really complement the reds and blacks well.

These are all really great, particularly the hellions. On them and the venom your freehand is amazing. I look forward to seeing more as this army evolves.

Love the overall look, and that you've not gone too heavy on the armour edge highlights (which I have done on my kabalites an now they look like wasps, too late now though!)
Two very enthusiastic thumbs up, your base work is excellent too.

Wow, really great models, love that you've managed to keep them dark yet with great hits of color. The red & green looks really strong. Love the paving in the bases.

now that's what I call a really good paintjob,
one thing I'd suggest correcting are the blades on hellglaives and a bayonette on splinter rifle - compared to other metalic parts they seem to be too shiny and bright.
but maybe it's the light.

anyway - a really good job

Thank you.

All metal parts are painted the same way, so any differences are due to how they reflect light. They are not very bright in reality.

Recently, I've been a bit paralyzed by the upcoming release of the new edition. I didn't want to build or paint anything that might be useless. But now that the rules are released, I've started painting again. And the first thing I did was finishing a raider that had been waiting on my painting desk for far too long.




And some closeups:

I LOVE the yellow on the sail! Looks fantastic Twisted Evil
Do you plan on using that on other sails in your army?

Your freehand really puts my attempts to shame. Great work, the sail with the Obsidian Rose emblem is simply amazing.

Thank you!

I plan on using the same symbol on the other sails. And probably on some vehicles without sails as well.

Really liking the Rose symbol.

I also made my sails yellow but might go back and add in more black, looks much better how you did it. Mine are a bit...canary Razz

As always great painting and yes excellent freehand! DE really are an army where good freehand skills can shine IMO, all armies can do it but on DE vehicles it just looks better. Cool

A few more wyches done! Allthough I am sceptical about their usefulness in 6th ed as anything other then vehicle hunters, they do add a bit of variety.


And a Hekatrix with agoniser:


And with those painted, I now have a small unit of eight wyches. I guess I'll add one or two more in the future.

I finished a Haemonculus. I had to rethink my idea of this model a bit after reading the new background and finding out that Haemonculi usually levitate. But the end result worked out well. The thing in his hand is a Shattershard.



And I also finished a wych with Shardnet and Impaler. As with the wyches, I'm sceptical about it's effectiveness, but I'll try it out and see.

Statistically S&I is the most effective weapon in CC for wyches. By takin away enemy attacks it helps much more that others that give a higher chance to wound. I've counted it against MEQ, and statistically it's the best.

Possibly the most awesome Haemi I've ever seen. Very reminisent of the old ones but with the style of our new, more crazy Haemies.
Did you make that out of spare parts or model it from green stuff?

I love your haemonculus! He looks quite different from the current edition ones, looking more like an ambitious haemonculus that has just started out his own praxis of fleshcrafting, thus looking rather simple. Nonetheless, he looks more than eager to prove his worth. Fantastic conversion!
