Disclaimer 1: I'm a really slow painter.

Disclaimer 2: My smartphone camera isn't all that.


- SHALUG'DOOM -
The Cult of the Eternal Flame

This will be the project log for my all-female Wych Cult. My plan is to create a solid 1500 point army for casual to friendly competitive gaming, with a few interchangeable units here and there - in total, we're probably looking at around 2000 points of nasty, mean, drug-addled chicks that want nothing more than to chop you up, kinda slowly, preferrably yesterday.

I have a few ground rules that will apply to how I create my army;

- all models, always, shall be female. No exceptions. This includes gun crew and pilots. Some may lack breasts for lack of cockpit space (I'm looking at you here, Venoms and Razorwing), in those cases, use suitably feminine heads to compensate.

- no Kabal or Coven unites. I'm allowing Scourges, mainly because they're awesome, but also because I feel that they fit in thematically.

- no two Wyches are ever going to look the same.


I will update this project log as much with lore as with pictures of painted models, most likely, and probably at a slower than regular pa(y)ce. However! I promise, I will update! With that in mind, let's get started, shall we?

----------

December 29th, 2012.

Venom Squad "Placeholder name 5" progress:



Solid progress on the Venom itself, metallics need highlights, then I can move onto the carapace. Gunner still only primed.

About 1/3 done with the girls; next steps are (in order) leathers, armour, hair, skin, dead skin, touching up.

Finally, a preview of what's to come...



7 + 7 + 5 Wyches, and two very early Raiders to carry the two packs of 7.



Venom to carry the final 5, and a Razorwing for good measure.

I'll hopefully get at least the Venom done over this weekend, possibly also some progress on the girls. I'm also planning to convert up and prime my two Succubi, so I at least have enough units to field a legal force primed and ready for the painting table.

Aha, a Wych cult army, and all-female no less! I look forward to seeing more of this, those four male Wyches in the standard Wych box haven't been sitting right with me from the start.

To be fair, there is another way to fix the Razorwing and Venom ockpit issue - simply glue the canopy shut and paint it! Tinted windows look quite well, too.

This is true... but that would be cheating Wink

I did consider it for the longest of whiles, though, but opted against it at it's only 3 vehicles total (4 if I decide to get another flier, but I doubt that, at least for now). There'll be enough work sorting the crew on 3 Ravagers and 4 Raiders worth of crew Razz

If you were really bothered about the gun crew/pilots you could alway resort to a bit of Green Stuff plastic surgery. They'd need a smaller cup size that the ready moulded ones, but I'm sure you should be able to squash a small pair into even our tiny cockpits Very Happy

What are you doing for HQ? I got Lelith Hesperax in Finecast for Christmas. I love the model, but a bubble in the resin has wiped out her mouth Sad , so I have to wait for a chance to get to a GW and ask them to exchange her. Hopefully they will be willing, even without a receipt, as the flaw is clearly visible and the blister is unopened...

For my HQ, I'll be running 2 Succubi;

One will be the Lhamaean with hands replaced, Splinter Pistol from Wych sprue and Venom Blade from Scourge sprue. She also have the Hexatrix trophy backrack from the Wych sprue on her back to give her some heigth.

For the second... I use Lelith. I, too, love that model to bits, it's just a perfectly balanced sculpt. I'm changing her right frontal arm to have a sideways Splinter Pistol - kinda "gangsta style", except that I plan to pose it in a manner that suggests she's using it to balance her pose. Her other arm is the Power Spear from the Scrouge sprue, which is the reason she's using her pistol for balance Razz

I'll eventually get around to make a "counts as" Sliscus as well, using the Succubus model with dual Venom Blades from the Scourge sprue. The arms for the Razorflails fit perfectly, you just have to change the blade at the hilt.

Hope you get your Hesperax sorted - I find they're usually pretty decent at leting you trade stuff back when it's obviously a miscast Smile
