I spagunk rise to the challenge of From Rage to Salvation and vow to complete the following as a primary vow: 1 sanguinary priest w/ plasma pistol on or before November 30th, 2018. Should I bring honour to the Blood Angels I will proudly wear the IRATUS DOMINUS badge; should I fail I will display the CARCERES IRA on my chest as a reminder of my shame.

How are you getting on with this and where's the sword from?

Only...

Two Weeks to go!

Terrible and horrible. Barely have anything done! :rolleyes: :laugh.::tongue.:

Not gluing the front piece to the main body was a mistake even if it meant not getting the dangling chain on his groin done properly. The lines on the sides are too much for me.

I see what you mean about the lines. It's a tricky one to overcome; perhaps paint the troublesome parts, assemble, then paint the rest? Annoying, I know - Karlaen's cape is another one :down:

... but enough about that as the model looks really great :smile.: I like how you've painted the fabric (I often attempt that method) and the gems really pop out :thumbsup: Congrats on earning your award!

That sword is stock with the kit Jol

Shows how much attention I pay to the current range... :blush.::blush.:

I am very close to being done with my Death Company squad.  Razorback is done, and I am down to touching up the black where the paintbrush slipped.  Pics will have to wait until the weekend, as that retail management life owns my soul this week.

 

Loads of time to get the pictures up still, so don't worry about it. Looking forward to seeing them :thumbsup:

 

10 days to go I think - they need to be done by end of Friday 30th local time? Or is the deadline a specific time on Friday?

 

Low stress challenge, uuuhuh. First batch of 7 is basically done, just need more bases. 2nd batch assembled, primed and red airbrushed, pre shade. Balancing the red with a hairy stick took me like 4 nights on the first round, did them on these in an hour with the airbrush so still hope to make it! Red is darker in the flesh, it's pure mephiston as the highlight.

Image borked :sad.:

 

As for the closing time, I've specifically not mentioned it :tongue.: More on that later but for now, everyone needs to aim to get their vows done for that date!

Sneaky.

 

Fixed link, I hope. Done most of the metals, jetpack glow on all and Lemartes' crozius since this pic taken. Will do an updated pic later hopefully. Have switched to imgur, google photos not working reliably! (I was checking em in another logged out browser, honest)

Less than ten days left and I haven’t even started yet. Been too busy with work. Good that I didn’t wov anything bigger :)

 

Not gluing the front piece to the main body was a mistake even if it meant not getting the dangling chain on his groin done properly. The lines on the sides are too much for me.

This should be easy to fix with PVA glue. Just mix PVA glue with water and use a brush to apply it to the gap. It might need couple of layers to completely hide the gap.

Into the final week! Just got off the vox with Astorath and he's been delayed on his trip to Baal, something to do with time displacements and hacking up heretics...
 

This means the event deadline has been extended to

03/12/18 at 1000 UTC*

 
Lets try and get some more completions in!

 

*(0200 PST, 0400 CST, 0500 EST, 1000 GMT, 1100 CET, 1800 AWST, 1930 ACST, 2000 AEST)

Quick WIP (will update thread later today):

gallery_62972_9848_70026.jpg

Oh man, those cream interiors. That's a labour of love. I left my drop pods leadbelcher inside, so the tech priests can just hose them down afterwards. Getting blood out of suede is hard.

Ok sorry this took so long. These have been done for over a week, but I'm lazy about photos and such.

And both my birds together:

In truth, I still have decals I want to add to Bird #2, but I don't know what I want to do, and where I want to put them, so I'm just calling this guy done for now, otherwise I'm going to feel forced into making a decision I'm not necessarily happy with.

So, without further ado: VOWS COMPLETE!

Great work, they're gorgeous, but what I don't understand is that 90% of the people I see using GW's transfers, this image of Sanguinius is always facing backwards. I've literally only seen one tank where Sanguinius is facing the enemy - why is that?

Stunning and well worth the wait. The DC Stormraven with the transition is something else. Unique too, as I've not seen that on a vehicle before (only Tycho so the chap run him as either/or). You've certainly earned the following for your signature! Congratulations!

Hope did they fare in the event you needed them done for?

Six days remain!

Woo-hoo, thanks Jolemai!

 

Yeah, I'm very pleased with the transition, especially considering it was done by hand and brush! (no airbrushing). Took quite a bit to get the layering down right.

 

My big birds did awesome; I discussed it in this thread, here:

That extra weekend definitely eases the pressure somewhat, phew! Been painting literally every spare moment I can this last couple of weeks, but with twin 3 year olds there's not as many of those as I used to have!

 

Faces on batch 2, then edge highlighting to finish on everybody, then I can finish tidying up the black. Then finally, varnish, finish metals and gems, then weathering. I've started on the last batch of bases. Repair work from a rogue brush seems to take forever, thus the masking tape on the power weapons so I don't make *that* mistake again.

Got the bitz I was waiting for today and finished my Intercessors except for decals and proper bases tho I'll do those later eventually. They are considered tabletop ready now so I only have to take pictures and make a post.

It didn't feel right not doing some additional stuff after they've been 'finished' at the end of the ETL and I just failed to upload a pic in time. :wink:

However full disclousure I messed up by adding those bitz afterwards so the overall quality of the paintjob and poses went downhill a lot. At least I now have the bitz to do it properly for the next batch. :sweat:

I,Escaflowne_Z, rise to the challenge of From Rage to Salvation and vow to complete the following as a primary vow: Death Company squad of seven members and transport Razorback on or before November 30th, 2018. Should I bring honour to the Blood Angels, I will proudly wear the IRATUS DOMINUS badge; should I fail I will display the CARCERES IRA on my chest as a reminder of my shame.

med_gallery_17039_6112_255342.jpg

Vow Complete! I wound up with eight chaps in total, I found a bonus power fist member. Naturally, the cellphone camera and lighting take away a significant amount of detail, but I am very happy with how they look on the table.

There comes a time in life everyone has to stop procrastinating I guess. :D

I call these guys finished. Only things I'd add would be decals and proper bases but that would be the cherry on the top and not something I'd consider necessary.

The chapter emblem used to be the Knights of Blood one from Shapeways, however it's basically impossible to remove them from the sprue and clean them up without breaking the sword parts off of it. Luckily these are Knights of Baal tho so I guess it works nicely as slightly changed chapter emblem in this case. :P

Also I decided to go with using the small shields for the squad markings (the colour has to be enough for now) instead of the right knee pad to make them more knightly and unique.

 

I'll edit in the post with the vow from the ETL thread if I can find it again once I'm back home. Now I'm out of time unfortunately.

Excellent work again Majkhel and what a shift you've put in this year! You've certainly earned one of these:

Now to put your feet up until 2019's events? ;)
