WIP: Skaven Warlord on Rat Ogre Bone Breaker

Spent some quality hobby time over the weekend getting this guy assembled and base coated. Using a Rat Ogre from the Island of Blood and a Stormvermin kit. The blade is just a piece of styrene and the reins are green stuff. He is looking pretty epic.

WIP: Eldar Shadow Spectres #2

Hey there, I made some good progress on the first batch of Shadow Spectres, check them out. You can now get a good impression of what the paint scheme will look like. With my Saim-Hann Eldar, I chose to feature the craftworld colours prominently on all my aspect warriors and keep the "shrine colours" muted and subtle. I felt this made my Saim-Hann collection as a whole a bit drab, so for my Iybraesil army I'll do it the other way round.

This is why I chose a bright silver for the armour instead of a ghostly grey, and painted the ribbons turquoise and jade green. The crystals in the weapons will become a pinkish red, adding another spot colour to the models. Can't wait to finish them, I always love the moment when a paint scheme I came up with turns to life. How do you like the paint scheme?

Hey folks, Uruk here. Time has come for me to say farewell to Tale of Painters, but before that let’s take one final jump to take a look at the last part of my World Eaters.

Showcase: Space Wolves Stormfang Gunship

Hey guys, here is a Space Wolves Stormfang that I have recently painted. All in quite traditional Space Wolves colours, but keeping it realistic looking, as usual. I do like the new model,  although against it I would say that it's a little unbalanced  on the base with most of the weight at the front going past the base.

What do you guys think?

Showcase: Mirkwood Spiders from the Hobbit

With the spiders finished, I thought I'd commemorate the project with some atmospheric photography. Find out how I created the scene and view pictures after the jump.

WIP: Eldar Shadow Spectres #1

Next up on my painting station are Forge World's Shadow Spectres. I really love their design, but cleaning and assembling was a major pain in the rear. These were the most fiddly and complicated (resin) models I ever had, and it took me a whole week to clean the models. I used so much green stuff and liquid green stuff, I believe the models were more green than grey in the end… anyways, they should be a nice addition to my Eldar collection. As you can see, I cut down the rocks as I felt they were too dominating, and inspired by ThirdEyeNuke's Shadow Spectres I'm going for a silver paint scheme. So far I've basecoated the armour with my airbrush and started to shade the silver with P3 Turquoise Ink and Guilliman Blue glaze. Let's see how they'll turn out…

Has anyone had the "pleasure" of assembling some Shadow Spectres as well?

Showcase: Daemons of Chaos, The Changeling

Tzeentch is by far my favorite Chaos god both based on fluff and the creative possibilities. When the Greater Daemons are called Lords of Change it opens up the army to virtually any conversion you can think of. The Changeling however needs no converting in my eyes.
