Showcase: Warriors of Chaos Orghotts Daemonspew

Happy Halloween all :) On the night of all things gruesome and ghoulish I bring you the new Nurgle Maggoth Lord Orghotts Daemonspew. The Maggoth Lord model gives you the option of making one of the three new Lords. My favorites are Orghotts and Morbidex Twiceborn. You also get the extra spare body parts of the two models that you don't use. These could quite easily be converted into standing figures or you could use them as riders. I really like these recent Nurgle models that GW are putting out and I'm pretty excited for the new Glottkin model. What are you all up to this Halloween?

WIP: Dwarf Longbeards #1

It is funny to be put in the situation where you feel a model has too much detail. So much in fact that you don't have room for your own creative additions like freehand details. I really felt this with the Hammerers so now as I finish assembly on the first unit of Longbeards I really want to create some space for Karak Eight Peaks iconography. I spent a rather significant amount of time over the weekend with the Dremel and hobby knife scraping off the faces but leaving the edging on the shields. Getting clean margins on the inside circle was slow going.

WIP: Eldar War Walker of Iybraesil #1

I've already painted one War Walker for my craftworld Iybraesil collection, but in the end I want a squad of three. So, two more models to go. Here is the assembled War Walker number two. Just as with the first one, weapons are magnetized and I used Wave Serpent style mountings for a more streamlined profile. I also added some rubble pieces to the base. Can't wait to slap some paint on it.

Trivia: The rune of the rubble piece on the right is based on Jes Goodwin's initials (JG).

WIP: Beorn and Bear from the Hobbit #1

New project time, I've decided to go back to the Hobbit range. I love the Hobbit range and there are some fantastic sculpts. This is an interesting box set. It costs £30 and you get Beorn in man and bear form. The man sculpt is great. It's a cool, relaxed pose and the detail is fantastic. The bear however is terrible and doesn't look like Beorn from the films. I've actually resculpted some of the facial fur to make the head a rounder shape and more film accurate. I'm pretty happy with it now.
