PostSubject: Kabal of the Gifts Ungiven   Sun Feb 23 2014, 23:56

To motivate myself to get the whole army painted, I've decided to start up a log of work starting from the first model. Going to update weekly, to show my progress! Hopefully I'll have around 2000 painted in the next few months!

The name of my Kabal did come from the Magic Card "Gifts Ungiven" it just seemed to have a good ring to it so I ported it over!

Any criticizm or reccomendations is much appreciated.

I appologize if the picture quality isnt the best, I tried to make it look as good as I can!

First up Warriors:
Decided to start with some warriors to practice my paint scheme and get some ideas, I've settled on a scheme I like alot, I don't have the right paint colors to do skin tone yet (will probably pick it up this week) so the splinter cannon warrior head is still just primed and waiting!  None of them are based yet because I'm waiting for some resin bases I ordered to arrive in the mail, going to be a tomb world theme base. I'm not satisfied w/ the eyes, so I'll probably go back and redo them.. I was kinda hastey at the time.

Amazing, love the dark armor with the bright orange, it gives it a model that is very fun and hard to not look at.

These are looking really nice. I really like the smooth blend from the yellow to the orange. What about having the eyes the same as the yellow you've done? It would create a very uniform spot colour for the scheme.

I'm looking forward to seeing more of these guys.

Second up: Raider!

This was an extremely fun model to build, everything is magnetized. (Sail, all 5 crew, disenigrator/dark lance, centerpiece that the sail sits on).

I didn't want to make the majority of the model metallic so I decided to go w/ a dark purple theme to offset the metallic purple armor of the crew. The entire underside is metallic purple!  I used an alphabet I found on the internet to put the symbols on the sail/banner. The first symbol that looks like a "T" is the letter G, and the other symbol that looks like a "J" with a dot is the letter U... hence Gifts Ungiven!

This was my first time ever doing some freehand work so it's not the greatest!

Here she is, Raider #1:

@Nullus: I was thinking of doing that to the eyes, I just need to steady my hand... I got a little bit of the shakes which is what makes these freehand things difficult for me! I'll post some pics next week of the eyes done up w/ a orange/yellow fade... it should look good!!!

Last part completed this week~ 3 Reaver Jetbikes!

This was a little more difficult to complete the freehand runes on, much smaller area to play with, again the lead bike has fully magnetized options/weapons which are all painted up.
After looking at these under light I think I'm going to re-highlight the runes on the bikes to make them brighter... also I noticed I forgot to do the tubing on the left shoulder of the riders!!!! So they aren't technically done yet!

Reaver Jetbikes:

This is a beautiful looking army TW, the blending is very nicely done as Nullus noted and your runes are excellent. Great job, especially the freehand considering that you have the shakes a bit.

And a Tantalus still to come, very jealous. The base for it looks interesting, what is it?

Cheers.

Thanks for the complements :)All the bases for the army are tomb bases from DarkArtsMinatures.com

The Tantalus is just a tomb world flying base with a 1/2" x 1/16" magnet on top of the pillar. Here's some photos of the base and how I mount it.

Magnet on the bottom of Tantalus:

This week I've finished the 3 jet bikes, 2nd raider and my Archon. Here's some pics of Archon Jay'ski... (name is an inside joke among my playgroup):

Got a large shipment of models in today because I was almost out of stuff to build/paint.
This weekend painting goals: Talos/Chronos, 10 Warriors. Build 5 more hellions.

Any criticism is much appreciated, always looking for ways to improve, Thank you Smile

Didn't get to the warriors this weekend, but I got my Talos/Chronos and a few Grotesques done.

Here's the Grotesque's, I got them for very cheap from ebay and had to strip paint. I lost a little detail due to the paint stripping process, but for the price I can't really complain. These were my first Coven creations and I've decided to do a red wash before highlighting skin to make them stand apart from the rest of the army.





Here's a few pictures of my Talos/Chronos. The model is fully magnetized for all weapon options/arms and interchangable.

I like the metallic highlights on your warriors' and archon's armor.

About the freehands, did you put them directly on the model or did you test/practice them on another surface or whatever first?
If not, i've read somewhere that helps and that's what i'm gonna do.
Maybe on some plastic packaging like that in which the Archon comes in.

@Marrath-

All the orange runes I just go and hope they look good. I kinda feel they should look more chaotic and unorganized.
All the symbols on the sails I practice a few times to get right. So far I haven't had to redo any sails.

Its hard to see in the picture but the Tantalus sail was my first time using an airbrush. Its a three tone red. I plan to try more complex designs in the future.

How hard did you find working with an airbrush for the first time?

My favourite touch (out of many great ones) is the rusty look on the rear blades. Looks perfect to me. How did you achieve that?

@Thor - it wasn't that bad. But then again I wasn't doing anythingtoo difficult! II'm going to try more in the future.

@Dragontree - Its not actually rust! I base coat the whole blade leadbelcher, then I wash it with crimson red, next is a brush of iron breaker about 3/4 of the way up the blade, then I do an ever so slight dry brush of runefang steel which adds the powdery look. Every blade in the at is done this way, both on vehicles and hand weapons.

Well it looks fantastic! If you ever feel like doing a step by step guide I would fall to my knees in gratitude! I've always struggled with making blades and the like look better than mediocre and your's do look sterling.

Look forward to seeing more of everything

I got some hellions and reavers on my workbench. When I do the reavers I'll put a step by step for the blades.

Finished my buddy's Maurader Destroyer. Heres some pics. Since taking these pic's I've gone back and straightened up a few lines that i noticed were done pretty bad. Also the glass is in the cockpit.







Any suggestions on basing this? Smile


And now that this side project is done I can get back to working on my Dark Eldar. Should have some new photos and that step by step up within the next two weeks. Going out of town for a lil sometime soon too.

Pleased to see I'm not the only one taking liberties with adapting daedric alphabet for the Dark Kin! Good looking models, very nice contrasts. Great effort, I want to see more!

As for the Marauder Bomber, how about some urban ruins with some scattered pieces of broken Chaos vehicle debris? Would certainly get the message across.
