PostSubject: My Grotesques   My Grotesques I_icon_minitimeSat Apr 06 2013, 06:37

Time to say hello! Some of you might know me from warseer or perhaps some German Forums. But now, after i got an Invitation on warseer, i finally reached the Dark City Smile
In contrast to the other Forums where I normally have project logs i decided that I am going to start different threads to different topics here to present my work.

In my first one i am going to Show you my latest work my Grotesques. They are built out of warhammer Vargheists combined with Talos Bits. I used one winged arm per model, because in my opinion the style fits very much to the "DE asthetic".

This was the aim. I wanted to built a fourth mini Out of the box so i made a Green Stuff stamp for one half of the body. The legs are actually Talos arms with Parts of old metal wrack arms.

Glad you made it over here, VanSan. Did you receive my message on WarSeer? You say you've been invited, but haven't replied to my invitation from months ago. Did somebody else invite you, too?

That being said: absolutely stunning models and an inspiration to us all. You should definitely add your units to our apothic gallery!

Yeah it was your Message from end of february on warseer. Sorry that i didn't answered but i read it quite late (i didn't check my pms often). But your message came to my mind when i decided to play the next tournament with my DE and after reading some Threads here i decided to join. Thanks again for inviting me and sorry that i didn't reply.

Great job on the grots, very unique conversion you've got there, I haven't seen a similar one on here before.

I've seen your DE army on warseer, it all looks great. You've put a lot of effort in that army and the colour scheme is simple, yet stunning. Oh and just for your information: I just had to steal your DE flakk-cannon idea - so much awesome. I'm currently in the building process.

You should post some pictures of your units in the aphotic gallery - https://www.thedarkcity.net/f25-the-aphotic-gallery

I like the whole style of your army and the grotesques look very good. I'm looking forward to see more of your Dark Eldar project.

These Grots look awesome, maybe they were planned to be Scourges with their steroid tubes left in too long. I saw another picture you posted from another post, would love to see more of your army as it is very nicely painted and converted. AND looks like from the pictures you have good photo taking skills too, so would love to see more if your up for sharing Very Happy

Amazing result VanSan. The best part about it. is that it appears to be done without green stuff (to which I bear no love).

I actually went out and bought some Vargheist and am polishing my talos bits of as we speak because of this post. This is the first time I have a good feeling about doing a grotesque. Wish me luck...

Wow, that's a kinda cool original take on the Grotesque conversion!

My Rat Ogre modifications feel a bit 'standard' now!
