  1. Hello! I’m new here and a returning player to 40k. I’m starting a new space wolves army, and thought I’d make a thread to document the process. I’ve chosen the Stormwolves Great Company and my first model conversion is a Primaris in Gravis Armour interpretation of the Wolf Lord Bjorn Stormwolf. Forgive the blu-tac handle on his noggin.
  2. Greetings Brothers, Some of you might be familiar with this project since I've been posting progress reports in the WIP subforum. You can see more work-in-progress photos in my thread. However, since I managed to finally complete the model, I thought that it's a great pretext for trying the blog function out. The project nearly turned out to be overwhelming. It took me way more time and required more skills than I anticipated, especially when it comes to handling Milliput. Nevertheless, despite the problems I encountered and the time it took me, I am quite happy with how the model turned out. The final product is a far cry from what I initially wanted to achieve and/or roughly envisaged the conversion to be but by no means is it bad. The main source of my problems was that I didn't do enough research and designing before starting work. I wanted to make the Redemptor more like the Castraferrum dreadnoughts, along the inspirations below: Clearly, I failed to thoroughly consider what made these conversions work and make the model look more like a 'true-scale' Box Dreadnought. Instead, with just a the vague impression and a set of ideas what I wanted to change and what I wanted to add, I started work, quite unconsciously taking more cues from the design of a Leviathan or Contemptor Dreadnought, than the design of a Castaferrum. The final result is quite different from what I wanted. This doesn't mean that I'm dissatisfied with the final product or the hours I spent on the project - I can quite confidently state that I'm quite happy with how it turned out and how the journey ended. I think that I managed to fix a lot of issues I take with the Primaris aesthetic and, overall, to my taste, the model is an upgrade to the vanilla Redemptor. A lot of this results from reducing the 'roundness' and plainness of the original (legs, shoulder guards), as well as shedding some front-heavy weight (the extra armour and the way the hull weapons are mounted on the original). And some side-by-side comparisons with a vanilla Redemptor Dreadnought: Shoulder guards: Including greebles on the back: Leg guards/greeves: Torso/hull:
  3. I’m curious if anyone has used the Eternus Armor bits from Pop Goes the Monkey on their Contemptor dreadnaughts. I’d like to use some of the bits (heads mainly, maybe shoulders or greaves also) on a GW plastic dread to just add some custom flair. However the heads look like they might be too big, same with the other pieces.
  4. With the first member of the up-scaled Cataphractii painted, I'm kinda surprised to say that the project is complete I already said in my previous entry, that I'm satisfied with the build. However seeing the result in full color gives that extra layer of confirmation and pleasure. Finis coronat opus if my High Gothic serves me right? Now the nearest goal is to paint the remaining 4 members of the squad. There is another 5 waiting in the sprues too if I fancy. As far as trying to make Terminators "better" idea goes, I have plans to try it out with the Indomitus pattern as well\ Cheers!
  5. Found myself some hobby time during the weekend and managed to finish the cloth surplices and plates extensions for the Terminators. Once that cured, I added the waist chains, fasteners, some bling in the form of acrylic tear-drops (nail decoriations) in various places and even built up some bases. So without further ado here is the whole squad as it is now: I think the Sergeant in the middle could also use some kind of icon on the top of the hood to further distinguish him. Or perhaps even a back-banner? Need to do some dry fitting and see. And another height-comparison check: I think I'm satisfied. Obviously heightening the base is cheating but the result is what I imagined for them. I think the feel of slow, purposeful power and massiveness is there. All they need now is some paint
  6. Hi all So I’ve had this guy planned ever since the Vostroyans came out, but I finally decided to do it after a long break from the hobby. He’s still WIP but c&c very welcome. I’ve no idea what rules I would use for him, so welcome any thoughts on that too. Cheers Lorr
  7. Let's see how the whole blog thing goes. In my last WIP update, I had done some GS work. I've done more. I used a template for chainmail to get the pattern and placed it over the stripped down leather strips. Once dry, any excess was removed. The inner shoulder pads were dry-fitted and glued into place. This gave me all I needed to assemble the bodies (Mk6 included for scale). I'm a bit annoyed at myself for the one on the far left. I didn't realize that one arm went straight out like that or I would have positioned the head differently. Here are two close ups: The angle of viewing means one can't see a bit of an overhang where the torso rests on the GS ball. It is noticeable on the back, but I'm going to cover that with a tank for the flamers.
  8. 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.

  9. 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.
  10. 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)
