Well as usual, i always have some down time XD

so here is the progress:

The look of the Tantalus right now. The passangers are just put on, so i can paint them properly . also a comparison, of how high the tantalus is flying.
My Coven Tantalus - Page 2 Iaqe-d-c51c

A closer look on the Wrack Doc. he'll get a quite dead looking Guardsmen at his feet - so the doc needs something new to play with.
My Coven Tantalus - Page 2 Iaqe-e-aab3

Chains at the side. first just a test. the other sides will get them in a later state, as ill be stuffing some more areas, so i don't need them hanging around at the moment ;-)
My Coven Tantalus - Page 2 Iaqe-f-9bf3

Last but not least, my base. it'll get more details, e.g. i'll try to make a guardsmen cowering behind one of the walls.
My Coven Tantalus - Page 2 Iaqe-g-c74d

Next things will be to cover the "wings" with a talos amour like structure, to implement the talos chains into the model. at the moment it looks a little lost on the wings.
then i'll attack the sail, as i want it to look like skin, so it needs some stitching.

so far, so good

Um..wow. That is a great model with NICE conversions for the crew. Do you have the next year slated for painting it? That is a massive model.

Converted Wracks on deck are good conversions by themselves, look amazing on giant vehicle. Creature on front is great idea. looking forward to seeing the flails integrated into wings you mentioned.

Great conversions and additions you are making Crazy, really giving it some nice character. I am seriously tempted to just buy one myself.

Evil Space Elves, yes, i guess it'll be a pretty long painting progress. if its finish by GD Germany next year, i guess i'll bring it, but that's still far off.

abjectus: It just loos silly, when there is no one on such a giant boat. especially because its open topped. we'll also see how much of my thoughts, regarding the flails, i can bring into GS XD

Gobsmakked: Yeah, i also really like the look of the model. i wanted to let it look a bit different then the regular Tantalus. And yes i guess the model as it is, is tempting ;-)

Well here is the next update.

so far i am quite pleased with my work. If finished the amour on the wings, that integrate the flails into the wings, and i have finished one side of the sail.. and it seems to have taken ages XD

so here are some pictures:

I'm happy with the result, as it isn't too difficult, but still is a good result.

The amour is not yet finished. it will get some of the spikes, the talos amour has, and it may need some smoothing, which i will try with the liquid GS. Hope to get hands on a pod tomorrow, as they all have been sold out at our local GW.

It looks great you are better with GS than I am so I don't think the armour on the wings look bad.

The stitching on the other side of the sail is going to be harder because it will need to match the side that you already have done.

This...this is very inspiring. I really love the detail on the sails, I normally don't care for the sails on the Dark Eldar transports. Thanks!

Hey, i inspire, i'm so close to fulfilling my plan! XD glad you like it.

@Cailos: Yep, that will be a challenge. but here is how i'll do it. I have done a picture of the one side, that i'll flip with a graphic program on my pc, and then i will draw the lines onto the other side. we'll see how good that plan can be executed ;-)

Hope to pick mine up when I'm home for Xmas! What does it weigh? (I might be able to bring 2 back! Wink)


Crazy_Irish, that looks fantastic!

This thing makes me feel incredibly jealous. I so want one such ship for my army as well...

Just a thought- You may want to consider "drilling" some faces into the sails; Two eyeholes and a screaming mouth-hole here and there might reinforce the "skin" idea...

I like this a lot!

It takes great bravery to convert a FW, i know that. But your are doing very well!
One minor hint, i don't know if you have considered this, but i would take some realy fine sandpaper and sand the GS-Work you have done on the "wings" smooth.

Some people say, you can't sand GS, but if you take 800 or 1000 Sandpaper it is working wonderfull. Especially when you add a drop of water to te sanding process.

In any chase: Keep on with this!

That makes me very happy, that so many like it! Tanks a lot for your support ;-)

Tanks Hydra, i really didn't think that you could sandpaper GS, but i will try it!

Deneris, i actual though of that, and i guess i'll give it a try, even though the sail is pretty thick, but i guess it would look pretty good.

SirTainly, i would guess it at 0,5Kilo. ;-)
