Start of the Deathwatch Project

After a long period of laziness and not finishing Dino, I'm back, now with Deathwatch.

Anyway, here's my brief.
- To create an army of Black-Clad, Xenos-Killing Superhumans - aka - Deathwatch Marines.
- To make a unique army. You don't see a lot of Deathwatch around, so I guess theyr'e a good choice.
- To improve my skills in Painting, Modelling, Sculpting and the Hobby in general.
- To create each marine so you can identify his chapter WITHOUT looking at his shoulder pad. This is fairly important as a want each one to be unique and have their own story.

The army will be purely for display and friendly games. The list consists of 2000 points of Sternguard, Pods, a single devastator squad, Stormtroopers (Counts-as Scouts) and of course, Kantor, to make the Sternguard Scoring. I will most likely include a MotF in their too for fun.

Another important thing I wanted was for all the Marines to be named. I've got a big word document saved with the name, chapter and design notes for each marine.

And with that note, here is what will soon become Squad Argus, with Sergeant Argus, an IF, Brother Skaryd a SW, Brother Ramiel, a DA, Brother Phrixos ,an Iron Snake, and Brother Barakiel, a Lamentor.

Here is my first order. You can see:
1.) The Drop Pod for the Squad.
2.) The Devastator Squad.
3.) The DW Conversion Pack.
4.) Some Paints - SW Grey and Boltgun Metal.

Anyway, I may get a little bit of work done today, and maybe a little bit tommorow, but the official start will be monday.

More Dinosaur Fun - Now with Scales

Moer Dinosoer pics today. Sorry for the delay. I've got some of the scales on. It was a very slow and painful process, adding each scale individually, but I think it's worth it.

More soon! (Probably not tomorrow I'm affraid. Homework Calls).

 Here's some practice for scales I've done with spare Greenstuff.

More Tommorow!

Dinosaur Stage 3

Here is stage 3 of the dinosaur. More fleshing out today, as well as adding a new tail and upper jaw. I hope to maybe start detailing tommorow.

 And a scale shot, againsts a Rearing Skeletal Skaven Jouster, and a marine. 

And as you're obviously wanting to see more Skeleton Riding Skaven, here are some more pics.

More tommorow!

Hrud - Skaven in Space

Here is a Hrud conversion I did a little while back. You may have seen it on Dakka.
(Note, these have nothing to do with the dinosaur, I just though I should post them up.)

First, a WIP shot...

...and a couple of painted ones... 

...and finally, a Scale shot next to a Catachan.

Here is todays update. I've just done the 'flesh/muscle' underlayes of the creature and it's looking very basic. Tommorow, I'll neten it up and try to form basic muscle shapes.

Here's a scale shot showing it againsts a Space Marine. It's a big bugger.

More tommorow!

Start of my Dino Riding Beast

Here is the start of my Rough Rider Dinosaur Beast. Just the Skeleton done today as I was feeling lazy. As you can probably see, they are made out of Plastic Sprue, as I didn't have an wire handy. I wouldn't recomend it, wire is easier.

More Tommorow!
