  1. Templar-izing my Outriders I already have a pretty large bike force for my Black Templars so I've been waiting excitedly for the Outriders. I added some of my existing bike conversion parts to the mix along with the heavy guardbrace on the shoulder pads. For the exhausts, I removed the thinner segment of the exhaust pipe filed it smooth then attached my resin upgrades rather than just drilling out the tube. Because they are so small they can be a bit fiddly but IMO it's worth the effort. It helps to add them before attaching the side pieces to the bikes, while you can still do it at any point it's just easier while it's still separate. I use a jewelry saw to remove the tube tips on the exhaust since it makes a nice clean & controlled cut, then filed everything smooth before attaching the resin tips. I use the tip of my hobby knife or a sewing needle carefully touched between the vents and help pick it up so I can eyeball that everything is straight before pressing it in place. The guardbrace was heated in very hot water for about 15 seconds then bent around the shoulder pad. (Hot enough to make tea) If you mess up they can be reheated and they'll flatten back out. Just make sure they aren't too cold when you go to bend them or they could crack. If's it's heated correctly it'll be very pliable. I used one of the Templar vehicle crosses on the hood and the shrine on the rear is a press molded copy of the top of the buttress piece from the Imperial Sector city fight terrain. Link for where to find the conversion parts: https://www.reddogminis.com/human-scaled-infantry.html
  2. Working on my Chaos Marine army is slow-going for a bunch of reasons, but progress does happen (and hopefully soon so will more actual games). I'm currently focused on assembling/converting a couple of extra HQ choices. Firstly, a new Chaos Lord based on an Aspiring Champion from the original incarnation of my army. Tentatively named Kayne Firebringer. There's a good chance the name will change at some point (or possibly just the spelling). Based on a Primaris Reiver to get the extra stature the original version was supposed to possess. I'm trimming down the right-hand shoulder pad to add a regular CSM shoulder pad over it, and I need to remove the left hand/forearm to replace it with the CSM power fist for "I'm coming for you" effect. I'm also waiting on some Necromunda Goliath parts to give him one of the masked heads instead of the head shown in this image. Next we have Angelica, Exalted Champion of Khorne or, as I like to think of her, the Khornate Murder Princess. She's waiting for me to work out what I'm doing for her shoulder pad and to fill the gap from the cloak piece I decided against using. I have a right arm for her, with a massive blade weapon, but I think I need to sort out the torso before I can start trimming the shoulder on the arm to get it to fit. And finally, for now, the third Helbrute for my army. Unfortunately I couldn't get my camera to focus on the Cold One Head properly. All it really needs at the moment is a bit of gap-filling, but I'm tempted to add spikes and blades to the spire for the extra Godzilla factor. The heavy flamers use the spare cannisters from the Helbrute kits and nozzles from the Sister of Silence kit.
  3. There are a lot of good chaos space marines models and a lot of good slaaneshi models but unfortunately not a lot of Emperor's Children support in current 40k. In this free for all topic we can share images of conversions, tips and suggestions to fill the gap! Emphasis not on how proud we are of our deeds but on how we can give suggestions or inspire our fratres (but, given our Legion choice, a little pride is not off topic) (I have not too much time right now so I will edit this intro later)
  4. Here will be posted some heavy chaos conversions/kitbashes/scratch builds that I have been working on for as long as a couple years now. I am looking for thoughts, suggestions, and opinions on how to make some really monstrous models. NOTE: Picture quality and size increase drastically later in this plog, so feel free to skip ahead Most recent project:

  8. Hello Brotherhood of the Lost forum! I've been a lurker for a while now but I've taken my first foray into making some BotL models. Seeing Mikhal's Wardens and Primarchs really pushed me into reading up on this fantastic narrative you've all created. And the uniqueness of all the different legions provides some great opportunities for model building! So first off I've finished this Lightning Bearer (pre-Harbringer). I've been a fan of the Lightning Bearers since Athrawes started his army. I'm not sure if my model is completely accurate to the existing lore as I've built mine from looking at the available art and models. Hopefully I've gotten the right feel of the legion though. I'll probably be slowly going through the different legions and making some models as I read through the pages and pages of lore. Anyways thanks for looking! More Views:
  9. Hello all! Some of you may know me from my plogs in the WIP forum. Some from MANY moons ago on here and other forums too. I've been in the Hobby for more than 20 years and have loved every minute of it. My aim here is to offer hobby and themeing advice to any that might need it. Come at me with any questions you have regarding conversions (whether that be for individual model, units or whole armies), Army Lore and Themes, good and reputable Bitz and 3rd Party sites and general hobby advice like using Green Stuff, working with Plasticard, Pinning etc. My brain is always ticking over with conversion ideas and I may as well put it to good use and help the community that has helped me so much over the years. For a look at what I do, check out my plogs Ferrum Aeternum and Monkey Business. I'm here to help and share my juicy brain meats with you all. Cheers, PHM
  10. Grandfather's blessings! I'm trying to decide on how to handle a conversion; The goal is to put a nice gut plate on my bare-bellied Lord of Contagion from the Know No fear set, as well as a bunch of flies. One of the options I'm considering is getting a Typhus figure, or parts of him. Can anyone tell me if he's the righ size? Looks like quite a large figure. I've noted that even my Deathshroud models are a little bit larger than my LoC or my Blightlord termis.
  11. "Because the Wolves kill cleanly, and we do not. They also kill quickly, and we have never done that, either. They fight, they win, and they stalk back to their ships with their tails held high. If they were ever ordered to destroy another Legion, they would do it by hurling warrior against warrior, seeking to grind their enemies down with the admirable delusions of the 'noble savage'. If we were ever ordered to assault another Legion, we would virus bomb their recruitment worlds; slaughter their serfs and slaves; poison their gene-seed repositories and spend the next dozen decades watching them die slow, humiliating deaths. Night after night, raid after raid, we'd overwhelm stragglers from their fleets and bleach their skulls to hang from our armour, until none remained. But that isn't the quick execution the Emperor needs, is it? The Wolves go for the throat. We go for the eyes. Then the tongue. Then the hands. Then the feet. Then we skin the crippled remains, and offer it up as an example to any still bearing witness. The Wolves were warriors before they became soldiers. We were murderers first, last, and always!"
  12. I like the GW Crusaders but wanted more poses, so i tried to faithfully create the same aesthetic. Parts Used: Forgeworld: Inquisition Bras. Puppets of war: Torementors Bodies, High Tech Crusade Heads. Games Workship: Chaos Warriors (Shields, Swords, Banner, Axes), Necromunda Bases At this time i have not painted them, but will show progress pics in time.
  13. So this is an issue I've noticed GW has let creep in over the years for most of their models, though admittedly Flayed Ones have never had a multi-pose kit, but what can we do about our Flayed Ones for when, as expected, the kit released will be 5 monopose models? This isn't supposed to be a GW bashing thread, we can save that for elsewhere (I have my issues with the new models as much as anyone of course) but what about our collective resources here? Can we provided each other good conversion guides, should we use 3D printing sources or alternative models as advice? Maybe just kitbashing and reposing guides would suffice? The main problem comes here from being limited to just 5 unique models from a unit that ideally needs to be in units of 15 or more.
  14. First off, apologies for the terrible pun (what this is in reference to will become clear). I'm in the process of assembling the first of 2 Imperial Knights I recently picked up and looking at the Thunderfist I couldn't help but think the fingers could be hinged (at the knuckles), and as it turns out they can. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxrYIak3fjY&feature=youtu.be Enjoy. Comments welcomed. Edit - To properly embed the video.
  15. Acquired a Primaris Marine for a painting competition, despite the fact I can't paint worth a damn. However, I did my best and even converted the model a little! Behold, Sergeant "Tiber" Tiberius of the Supernovas! http://i.imgur.com/bnTqHYn.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/2sTj7xl.png http://i.imgur.com/HB9AREE.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/KBFXoCx.png Sergeant Tiberius was one of ten Primaris Space Marines assigned to the Supernovas Chapter in the wake of their Tyrannic War upon their homeworld of Tasal. Initially distrusted, Tiberius slowly began to adapt to the Chapter's ways and customs, eventually becoming a respected and appreciated addition to the Fifth Company's fighting force.
  16. Hi all, I'm looking to build myself a new Dark Apostle for my World Eaters - I do like the GW model but am looking to make something unique. I would love to see any Dark Apostles you lot have made up, no matter the legion or warband, for a bit of inspiration!
  17. I've been building and painting Space Marines and Death Guard for a bit now, and I decided I'd try my hand at a conversion. I had some spare Space Wolves I got secondhand lying around, as well as some press-fit Plague Marines, some Blightlord Terminator parts (left over from when I put together mine for my core army), a hobby knife, some glue and only one HQ option for my Death Guard. So an hour later, I had Lord Rotpurge here put together, all glued and assembled. He needs painted, of course, but it's a nice start. Advice is welcome, although he himself won't be changed structurally. http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_15320/gallery_137555_15320_24969.jpg http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_15320/gallery_137555_15320_41831.jpg
  18. Hello all, So, it's been a little while since i last posted anything. Have to admit I got a little demotivated for a while. My ongoing projects have ground to a halt, work was exhausting and to top it off, sadly my Grandfather passed away just before Christmas. However, it is a new year and time for new beginnings. I have started a new job which I am thoroughly enjoying and courtesy of my better half, I have acquired, amongst some other bits an pieces an imperial knight valiant. I had been toying for some time with the idea of a dwarf themed knightly house to fight along side my Bear primaris space marines. I have always loved dwarves, I loved the squats until their untimely demise and wanted to find a way of continuing their legacy. Also the tradition of honouring their ancestors struck a chord in view of recent events. So i have started building. I got a little carried away before I remembered to post so here is everything to date... Firstly, I wanted to have a more interesting base and pose than the standard one. so I knocked this out with come cork board and a hellbrute that my other half found on ebay. (as per usual excuse the pic quality) http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_15156/med_gallery_87416_15156_511748.jpeg http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_15156/med_gallery_87416_15156_624604.jpeg http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_15156/med_gallery_87416_15156_166360.jpeg I also love the work that i have seen here by KrautScientist and various others making detailed cockpits and engines etc. so i thought i'd also give it a go. However rather than the usual sit in place with a neural link type cockpit, i thought id try something more akin to the power-loader from aliens or the drift pilots from pacific rim... http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_15156/med_gallery_87416_15156_87767.png http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_15156/med_gallery_87416_15156_76944.jpg One of the other models I had gifted to me was Brokk Grungsson of the Kharadron Overlords http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_15156/med_gallery_87416_15156_19961.jpg Which I thought might with a few edits make a half decent pilot rig. He also has an interesting pose which I am trying to mirror in the knight itself. So, I have re-positioned the legs on the knight to change the leading leg, the angle of the feet and have also changed one toe to better suit it's footing... (Also, in the background you will see Sam, feline empress of all she sees and destroyer of worlds. Many a model has fallen beneath her paws and the lashing tail of fury ) http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_15156/med_gallery_87416_15156_594907.jpeg http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_15156/med_gallery_87416_15156_990994.jpeg I also split the internals with some plasticard, gave Brokk a headswap and trimmed things down a bit, at which point he actually fits quite nicely... http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_15156/med_gallery_87416_15156_301630.jpeg http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_15156/med_gallery_87416_15156_711019.jpeg I have then built the pilot interface and power plant out of Brokk's endrin parts, a couple of old bases and some other bits. I still need to fill a couple of other bits, and build the leg pistons, but here it is so far. http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_15156/med_gallery_87416_15156_1008232.jpeg http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_15156/med_gallery_87416_15156_1505112.jpeg http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_15156/med_gallery_87416_15156_1171069.jpeg So, there you have it to date. I hope you like him so far and will post more updates as i have them. Any comments, feedback etc welcome as per usual. Cheers, GM
  19. http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_12197/gallery_85228_12197_42059.jpg Vraksian Enforcer "The weak will always be led by the strong. Where the strong see purpose and act, the weak follow; where the strong cry out against fate, the weak bow their heads and succumb. There are many who are weak; and many are their temptations. Despise the weak for they shall flock to the call of the Daemon and the Renegade. Pity them not and scorn their cries of innocence - it is better that one hundred innocently fall before the wrath of the Emperor than one kneels before the Daemon."" - The First Book of Indoctrinations Overview I must have been on-off on-off with regards to Warhammer over the years, largely because of the numerous projects that I've started and lacked the motivation to finish. With this in mind, I've decided to start anew. I'll list anything that I am working on, such as the new Cultists I'm prepping for an upcoming Escalation campaign at my local Games Workshop, but I'll avoid setting targets for myself. This is also the perfect opportunity for me to start playing around with conversion techniques and materials that I don't typically use (such as greenstuff and plasticard) Ongoing Projects Traitor Guard. Slaaneshi Cultists. Thunder Warriors. To kick it all off, 1/3rd of one of my Traitor Guard/Cultist squads. I wanted these dudes to stick to the "former IG" aesthetic as much as possible whilst making it clear that they aren't loyalists anymore. To this end I used the GSC Brood Brothers as the base (or the Cadian Shock Troops, I forget which) with some heads from the GSC Upgrade Frame, a Flagellant head, an Orlock head and some arms from the Skitarii Rangers. I took stock of some spare Space Marine melta bombs that I had lying around and I've been using those to represent gas canisters. Although, the thought of doing a suicidal cultist all strapped up with melta bombs and krak grenades for dealing with enemy armour is enticing now... An Icon Bearer and two generic Cultists. I wanted to break up the squads a bit, so they weren't just stacked with autoguns and heavy stubbers. The Vox Caster and the Medic seemed like practical additions to the squads as well; I imagine that even the Traitor Guard recognise the need for a well-trained surgeon from time to time, and I like to think that it's a bit of a holdover from their days as loyalists. I used a mixture of bits from the Cadian and Catachan command squads, as well as the icon from a Chaos Chariot. I threw in some leftovers from the GSC Upgrade Frame for good measure as well. Last but not least; a Slaaneshi Enforcer that I started way, way back in 2017 and never got around to doing anything with. Now that I'm actually working on my Traitor Guard/Cultists a bit more I feel like it's time to finish this dude off. He was converted up using bits from the Hellstriders of Slaanesh kit and some Neophyte Hybrids. I'll post some more up a little later this week when I'm ready to show off the rest. I've got some greenstuff/plasticard work to do in the meantime!
  20. Hey again, remaking this thread, it disappeared when the forum vent down, and haven't had the time or energy to remake everything, until now! so all of you that's been waiting I am sorry it took so long back now and will update with the old and the new projects. also lost the friends and such on my profile so you guys know I didn't remove you all from the list did get quite a few subscriptions last time in those 2 days, so if you still like this you can sign up again Balefire Legion is Chaos Space Marines from the black legion, who had the warp intensified their hate for the empire and set it ablaze, the green demonic glow showing out through their eyes and even burning through armour and shown in markings. They keep the dark armour of the black legion but adorn the trims with the colour of bone to match the skulls they collect from the countless victim's of every world they set ablaze. With this thread that was originally inspired by subtle discord and his legion rising chaos thread, I in return hope that my work can also inspire others and him as well. if you haven't you should definitely go have a look at legion rising too. I love feedback and ideas and suggestions, so please feel free to comment as much as you like I really like building and converting, and painting and a bit of playing. now lets get some pictures back up! all of these are still wip so missing highlights and such I know and the hellbrute of course, the auto cannon is magnetized and the power fist is snap fit and moveable http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/image-10.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/image-11.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/image-12.jpg then we have my helldrake, wasn't too fond of the original so had to convert it, and since they are supposed to be warped chaos fighters I made it more fighter plane like, opened up a maulerfiend head and stuck a bale flamer in there too for good measure and some crispy loyalist marines on the base, http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/image-14.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/image-15.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/image-13.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/image-16.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/image-9.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/image-1.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/IMG_0661.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/IMG_0659.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/IMG_1229.jpg Working on my next helldrake, did some test mock-ups and asked for feedback on them (Edit: removed these because it somehow exceeded the maximum pictures allowed in a thread) also made a couple of chaos spawns, one normal kit and one I converted from a marine. need to get my hands on some freakflex paint for realistic blood for it. http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/IMG_1275.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/IMG_1274.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/IMG_1276.jpg and the standard one http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/IMG_1273.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/IMG_1271.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/IMG_1270.jpg currently i am working on my deathwing terminators, not having that much money I went for the cheap option and bought a start box, then converted the dark angels to chaos here is the champion http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/IMG_1290.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/IMG_1291.jpg will update with more of the old stuff and of course more of the new
  21. First update is that I've got the basecoat on for my first ten cultists I've stretched the contents of one set of Dark vengeance cultists, plus the five pack box into thirty six cultists so far with a mixture of parts from the empire flagellants kit providing the bulk of the parts. But also featuring old necromunda plastics, crypt ghouls, chaos marauders and whatever else I could get my hands on. (the last four will be based off of push fit cadian as budget was too tight to spring for metal Cawdor and redemptionist gangers from eBay at this time) I've tried to mix up and mess around with the stock cultists as much as possible to avoid repetition, some of these changes were quite easy, others, not so much. I'll be trying to find ways of painting the different parts to really get a feel for the different textures of the fabrics, so there should be hopefully a fair few techniques to try out along the way. Is this too much effort for lowly cultists? Of course it is, but that's not going to stop me. ***Further Update May 2 2020: thanks to replacement image hosting also going behind a big fat pay wall all the completed images have had to be relocated again, they are not currently reposted and I would like to apologise for the lengthy section mid blog with lots of talk about images that no longer exist. That said I have now relocated everything into my bolter and chainsword gallery and will be re-posting stuff over the coming days and weeks. If you get bored of waiting for that feel free to check out Instagram or CMON as most stuff is over there. (Although not everything) *** Please note all old wip images have been removed thanks to the great photobucket policy change of 2017, and completed shots have been posted in new posts from page 3 onward. http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/topic/322456-maligns-litany-of-hate-mk-3-images-restored-from-page-3/?p=4905982 *** This will be my ETL WiP thread, mk3 of my painting log for my long running, oft neglected Word Bearers.

  22. So I've been following a number of Blogs for a while and using Google searches for inspiration for many projects, one thing crops up a lot in them and that's this community on B&C. Now that's probably not a surprise since when I first started blogging I found KrautScientist's amazing Eternal Hunt and Have been hooked ever since. Now most recently it was his imperial Knight and links through to Tibbs forge that meant when Forgeworld released rules for Chaos I simply couldn't resist starting my own. So having pinched ideas from many of you guys and a chat with DragonLover about the community I think it's only fair I share the Knight and even give some sneaky advance pics that I've not posted on my blog yet. Starting with The Knight warden Kit I've decided the first Knight of Black Ruin will be a Khorne Daemon Knight. The initial stages began with lots of research into pose and ides, I won't repeat it all here as I want to get on with the pictures, but my Blog covers my starting point in detail if people are interested. However after going over Tibb's Forge and the posts on leg reposing of Queen Bee I made my first move. http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_11374/med_gallery_88567_11374_616895.png Once this was done for both legs it was a fairly quick process to get the parts ready for assembling, then I used the Freeblade Game Trailer to help design the pose. Its great to be able to see a Knight stomping round and really get a feel for how it would look mid pose. This is what I came up with. http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_11374/med_gallery_88567_11374_63418.png With such a significant repose of the legs I'm going to need to do something with the pistons, however unlike Queen Bee I don;t have to worry about all that pesky realism thanks to cheeky warp smithing so this was the Knight right leg after the first bout of green stuffing. http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_11374/med_gallery_88567_11374_99313.png It's had a fair bit more greenstuff applied since. Once I've written up my blog post about the pose I'll dig through the photos of the legs details so you guys can be the first to see.
  23. So, I'm posting up a WIP thread in, god knows, years. The last one was when the Contemptor was first released. Well, this time around, it's something from the starter set for 8th edition. It's one of the Death Guard, but I could only find the main body and the left arm for him. The rest of him was used to make his twin. So, in for a penny, in for a pound, I decided to make a new model out of whatever I could put my hands on. This is very much a WIP. At this point I'm only about halfway done so far. I still need to sort out the right shoulder guard (it's an amalgamation of two different kits that don't quite sit right together) by covering it, probably, with a cloak or something. The head was an old Night Lord one, with the wings swapped out for DG spikes from other starter kit models that I've been modifying. The torso was a Tartaros one to begin with, though I've dinged it up a bit and removed the scroll-work on the front of it. Not sure if I've finished with that yet. The backpack is a Crimson Slaughter one, as is the bolter arm. And, oh yeah, there's some epoxy intestines. A little weird to get it more or less right but I think it's just a matter of practice. Anyway, about an hour later and I've continued work, mostly sorting out the right side. I began the cloak (note the epoxy scaffold for further sculpting later on) and I've added in a rat's tail. It's a bit on the bony side but I like it. The only thing I'm concerned about atm is the additional censer on the shoulder pad. I think it's standing a little too proud. Maybe I should shave it down by another mil or two... Ideas, comments and critique are welcome.
