And here she is.

And I am thrilled with how it looks.

I partly wish my painting skills had improved over the years, but I think its safe to say I can build the hell out of something.

Behold, the Void Raven:







Based on my "PRojects to finish list", this log should next be seeing an Aspect Host of 15 Warp Spiders, a Seer Council, and my Vengeance Weapons Batteries.
I doubt I'll post my repairs here, as they've all been in the log before. Maybe if another small model addition comes along, or Gathering Storm II inspires me.....

Neat! Excellent scratch-build/conversion/thing Smile certainly imposing enough to act as a distraction carnifex Wink

Damn it, I need to get this straight in my head and in words.

Having forgotten several things, the list of projects sitting unfinished currently stands at:

> Voidraven
> Relic Figurines
> Doomrider
> Paint entire Deathwatch Army
--> Finish LEDing and building Corvus Blackstar
--> 2x Razorbacks
--> Stormclaw Brotherhood
--> Librarius Conclave
--> Terminators
--> Vanguard
--> Veterans
> Seer Council
> Aspect Host (3x 5 man Warp Spiders units) - IN PROGRESS
> Repair broken Dark Eldar Infantry models
> Repair broken Dark Eldar Vehicles
> Vengeance Weapons Batteries
> Paint Ravager and find Pilot
> Finish Bloodbowl Apothecary, Griff Oberwald and Mighty Zug
> Finish and paint Inquisition Acolytes
> Land Speeder Storm (for Inquisition allies)
> Grey Knights Terminator squad (for Inquisition allies)


What is wrong with me?!

I need to get these finished before anything starts new. Nothing new until this list is done, I swear to mighty Azathoth.

Except that my brain also wants to build an Ynnead now that I hear rumurs that you can use it in any Eldar army. A nice one to fit my Kabal rather than the slightly too Slaaneshy one. I'm not a fan of that model.
Would it be acceptable to break the resolution just a little for Ynnead?

I hereby grant you permission to break your resolution to make an alternate Avatar of Ynnead Wink

I've been mulling over in my head how I'd do it to make it look a little more deathly, but I've spent all my moula this month so I can't :S thus, I shall have to live vicariously through you! Wink

Also, I wouldn't worry overly about the list Smile my Primered Legion is approaching pre-Heresy Ultramarines numbers...

Well, who can argue with that if given permission?

Of course this does mean I need to work out - if I think the current Ynnead looks too Slaaneshy - what SHOULD an Eldar God of Death look like?!
An early idea, is a body made of crystal. I may run an expermient.........

Glad I could be of service Wink

I've been thinking the same thing about the Avatar myself. While I like that he looks vaguely Slaaneshi, he definitely doesn't look like an Eldar God of the Dead to me.

Couple of ideas I had to improve on that (spoilered in case you don't want your ideas to be corrupted!).

Spoiler:
 

As I can't grab the Triumvirate this month, if you like the ideas I'd love to see what you come up with Smile

A crystalline body would also be absolutely fitting, given the Avatar's first awakening on the crystal moon of Coheria. Plus, there's a Dome of Crystal Seers in every craftworld with a forest of dead crystalline Eldar heroes. It's a very evocative image of Eldar death.

Yeah that could be really cool!

Yeah, I think I have a problem, I start something, usually get it undercoated, and then let it sit on a shelf while I start something else.....

It really is an issue.

______________________________________________________

Anyway! Progress!

ASPECT HOST COMPLETE!!! Behold 15 of my custom Warp Spiders!



______________________________________________________

Also, I started an Ynnead based experiment. I like the idea of Ynnead being a crystaline figure, so I'm going to try this out.......



Yes, its a really silly experiment, but I think it might just work. At the very least, the LARGE "kit" cost me £5. So nothing. Worth a stab to see if it works, and if not, I'll make som terrain or objective markers or something.

The crystal "kit" says it takes a couple of days to grow fully, so we'll see how it turns out.
If this works I'll probably redo using a similar method to my Avatar of Khaine, find a suitable action figure and use it as a base for a crystal badass.

I've already started to notice some crystalizing after only an hour, so I guess I now have to wait the weekend.
______________________________________________________

To update the list then:
> Voidraven
> Relic Figurines
> Doomrider
> Paint entire Deathwatch Army
--> Finish LEDing and building Corvus Blackstar
--> 2x Razorbacks
--> Stormclaw Brotherhood
--> Librarius Conclave
--> Terminators
--> Vanguard
--> Veterans
> Seer Council
> Aspect Host (3x 5 man Warp Spiders units)
> Repair broken Dark Eldar Infantry models
> Repair broken Dark Eldar Vehicles
> Vengeance Weapons Batteries
> Paint Ravager and find Pilot
> Finish Bloodbowl Apothecary, Griff Oberwald and Mighty Zug
> Finish and paint Inquisition Acolytes
> Land Speeder Storm (for Inquisition allies)
> Grey Knights Terminator squad (for Inquisition allies)
> Ynnead (possible new addition, assuming it IS legal for a standard Dark Eldar army)

So only ten days in, and my monthly vow complete!
With the rest of my month, where I have time, I'll commit to repairing Dark Eldar Infantry, and see if I can finish painting my Deathwatch Librarius Conclave.

Some recent additions over at my Imperial Distractions thread (Infantry fixed, and Librarius finished) have updated the list:

> Voidraven
> Relic Figurines
> Doomrider
> Paint entire Deathwatch Army
--> Finish LEDing and building Corvus Blackstar
--> 2x Razorbacks
--> Stormclaw Brotherhood
--> Librarius Conclave
--> Terminators
--> Vanguard
--> Veterans
> Seer Council
> Aspect Host (3x 5 man Warp Spiders units)
> Repair broken Dark Eldar Infantry models
> Repair broken Dark Eldar Vehicles
> Vengeance Weapons Batteries
> Paint Ravager and find Pilot
> Finish Bloodbowl Apothecary, Griff Oberwald and Mighty Zug
> Finish and paint Inquisition Acolytes
> Land Speeder Storm (for Inquisition allies)
> Grey Knights Terminator squad (for Inquisition allies)
> Ynnead

I'm nearly done on the Deathwatch Terminators too, and have made a good start on the Grey Knights unit.

If I can push through them, I'll try to add the Bloodbowl figures next (2 Star Players to finish building plus one Apothecary). Annoyingly I'm working at the PC Gamer Con this weekend so I won;t be able to do much more until next week now.

Woooooo though! Progress!

Another reasonably pointless, pictureless update, mainly to update the "unfinished projects list".

Latest updates are over on my Imperial Distractions thread, and they feature Terminators and Grey Knights.


> Voidraven
> Relic Figurines
> Doomrider
> Paint entire Deathwatch Army
--> Finish LEDing and building Corvus Blackstar
--> 2x Razorbacks
--> Stormclaw Brotherhood
--> Librarius Conclave
--> Terminators
--> Chaplains
--> Vanguard
--> Veterans
> Seer Council
> Aspect Host (3x 5 man Warp Spiders units)
> Repair broken Dark Eldar Infantry models
> Repair broken Dark Eldar Vehicles
> Vengeance Weapons Batteries
> Paint Ravager and find Pilot
> Finish Bloodbowl Apothecary, Griff Oberwald and Mighty Zug
> Finish and paint Inquisition Acolytes
> Land Speeder Storm (for Inquisition allies)
> Grey Knights Terminator squad (for Inquisition allies)
> Ynnead


I will likely just try to get some Deathwatch Veterans painted next just to start working through them before doing something more interesting as part of a March vow.


In other news the Ynnead "Grow Your Own Crystals" idea didn;t work. It looks so awful I can;t be bothered to photo it.
So looking at some other options.

So I got bored lately, spotted something interesting, grabbed it, and slightly broke my New Years resolution by making a new thing. Its a really small thing though, so please forgive me. Its only a new Talos.



I've got enough parts for the body, so if I can find another head I'm consdering building another. Maybe a few. I need to rebase my other Tali anyway...

I'm also considering adding a controller/handler at the centre of the tail, but I'm undecided on that yet.

________________________________________________________________

So to quickly recap the projects list......I'm thinking of abandoning one or two. They're just.....pointless and annoying.

> Voidraven
> Relic Figurines
> Doomrider
> Paint entire Deathwatch Army
--> Finish LEDing and building Corvus Blackstar
--> 2x Razorbacks
--> Stormclaw Brotherhood
--> Librarius Conclave
--> Terminators
--> Chaplains
--> Vanguard
--> Veterans
> Seer Council
> Aspect Host (3x 5 man Warp Spiders units)
> Repair broken Dark Eldar Infantry models
> Repair broken Dark Eldar Vehicles
> Vengeance Weapons Batteries - annoyed, and wondering if I'm ever actually to USE them. Bastion and Obliterator are sitting idle.....
> Paint Ravager and find Pilot
> Finish Bloodbowl Apothecary, Griff Oberwald and Mighty Zug
> Finish and paint Inquisition Acolytes
> Land Speeder Storm (for Inquisition allies)
> Grey Knights Terminator squad (for Inquisition allies)
> Ynnead
> New Talos. Sigh.

Awesome! I'm liking the look of that Smile

It's always a good idea to prune plans every now and again, especially as you seem to be someone like me with more ideas than time!

If you haven't made it already, you're probably not actually as interested in it as you thought...

Oh no, this is the great problem.

ALL of the above have ALREADY BEEN BUILT.

The trouble now is that they're either un or half painted, and thats what needs finishing!
The Vengeance Batteries - for some reason I built four. THey'd make nice terrain pieces I think, but I don't know when I'll use them properly. They're built, and base-coated. I just haven't brought myself to the point of effort to finish them when compared to other projects.

I found a Jetbike canopy. A bit of work later, and I've built the second Talos:

Starting something new from the list, this time the YNCARNE.

I'm a bit rubbish at assembling a decent humanoid form from scratch, so like to work with armitures. Action Figures work quite well for this, and if you remember my Avatar of Khaine, I used a General Zod from Man Of Steel.
I've been keeping my eye out for something decent for my Yncarne, and had thought about trying to find a small skeleton model, but instead came across a decent sized bargain bin Emma Frost (X-Men). Seeing it, I thought this would work very nicely.



The plan is to pose very similar to my Avatar, floating above the ground and maybe tilted to appear to be descending, arms outstretched more like an icon than a combat-ready warrior.
Based on the image above, I'll be removing her cape and hair, and intend to scultp crystals growing out of her body. The whole plan at this stage is to have her appear to be made of the crystals from that moon she was born from.
I have her posed, so as with the Avatar before her the next stage is to green stuff the limb joints to covers over the points of articulation on the figure and strengthen its build.
After that, I'l start adding the crystals, and also some armour. One of my complaints with the Yncarne model from GW is just how Slaaneshy it looks, and I think the armour is a factor in that. So this one will have a far more Eldary feel. Probably slightly more Commorite actually.

Yncarne progress: with the main body in pose and the limbs starting to smooth in, I started the first round of building up the crystaline structure.
I've been using Styrene rods, cubed, to make the crystal effect. The next stage is to use some further, thinner cubed rods to add to the texture.
Once thats done I'll use Green Stuff to smooth the crystals into the body, and this will give me the full body. I'm going to paint the whole body with crysals and all AS crystals.
Before I do though, I'll be adding some small pieces of armour.



Once this is done, its REALLY tempting to build a Laughing God avatar to complete a little Triumvirate of my own.....
