Hi all, here's my army in progress, it's been about 2 months since I started collecting, and only today have I finally built all I need and can happily field 1,500 points now. Now time for some serious painting!

Let me know what you guys think, and I'll keep this thread updated as I paint more!













Any my duke Sliscus conversion -







Since these pictures were taken I've finished the raider and crew, and have finished 5 wyches and a Venom, will have the pictures up soon!

Thanks for looking!

The sharp highlights on your Warriors are splendid, although the things that stand out and look truely magnificent are the Haemie's blue coat and your Sybarite's white Pectoral Plates.
It is nice to see a different colour in there.

Your Duke is cool too.

Well done so far.

Liking it, the contrast between the highlights and the blue tabards works really well especially on the haemonculus. If I had to suggest something, I'd try to make the helmet lenses stand out a bit more, but it's a minor quibble really.
Two very enthusiastic thumbs up.

Those are really nice models. Your painting is really good. Especially on the last warrior. There are some nice color transitions on your highlights. I really like them!

From where did you get your legs for Sliscus?

Thanks for the kind comments!

Will definately have a go at making the eyes brighter as its my main quibble with them!

Have mostly painted the duke now, pictures coming soon! The legs for him are from one pf the wyches hanging off the back of a venom.

Great colors, cannot wait to see how you paint up your Duke Sliscus conversion. I actually do not mind the darker eyes at all. The Raider base is really nice!

Ok, here come the pics! The duke needs alot more work, his cape a rather serpents green but I'm not happy with it as I dry brushed it, but going to re-do it and paint each highlight individually.



First finished (minus gunner) venom





The finished raider







First 5 wyches





Thanks for viewing! Again all critisms welcomed!

Badass Slisscus!

The paint jobs on all of your models is are superb, and the freehand on your Venom and Raider are awesome.
The contrast of the bright Green/Orange to the black makes your models look cool and threatening.

Once again, great job. Very Happy

Nice! Are you going to pick out the bone combs in the wyches hair?
Other than that, nothing to add, the venom in particular looks really striking.

Nice, I really like the high-contrast armor. It gives the impression of a poisonous insect's carapace.

Absolutely gorgeous. I may have my haemonculus cut off your hands so as to prevent any further work outshining my own.

Luv'ly work, they really 'pop' off the table. Especially your Venom, that one looks amazing.

Well done!

Thanks again for all the kind comments everyone.

Agree with the comments on the vehicle lines, so here's my work in progress of my razorwing....

It's taking ages but pleased with the results!

And so you should be, the blending on the trailing edges in particular looks very impressive, if I had to criticise I'd say there's maybe a bit too much blue compared to the orange but it's still really striking.

It looks absolutely fantastic. But I also think the blue is a bit to much. Perhaps you could paint the gems blue to fit the colors of your army. That would be a nice eye catcher and less dominant than the wings. But that is only my personal preference. Your work is awesome.

Thanks for all the kind comments!
I've been very busy so not huge amount done. The razorwing is getting there, but in the meantime I've just done my first Harlequin and finished 5 scourges.

As before, all comments and critisms please send my way!

OMG - I had my Drazhar painted in a scheme like that a loooooong time ago - it's really impressive (I mean your models Wink.

I just wonder - you achieve a fairly nice transition between red and orange on infantry, however the raider plating seems a bit too roughly painted compared to the other vehicles (especially razorwing). Did you think about making the edges more subtle?

Thanks for the kind words. The raider was one of the first models I painted in this scheme so I was just making it up as I went along really, gaining more confidence for the venom and then the razorwing. I'm going to do the Ravager next so it will hopefully come out smoother!

Really nice! The flame effect on the edges is brilliant.
