I really like the scheme on your PM's, the red gun casings and blue plasma really make it pop.

Thanks guys!

I did a bit of work this weekend, finished the wings on the heldrake, now have to get up the motivation to do the body. Did some work on my X'Lanthos that came, and right now am waiting for some ebay orders to come in with the rest of my CSM army.

Ill post some more pics this week.

Cheers!

Well, here is some of my recent work. Ive been picking up random things around the table, just so I can avoid painting the Heldrake's body... the wings were frustrating enough as it is, so i figured I needed a break.

Anyways, heres the pics:

X'Lanthos Commander:
Very WIP, and a bad picture at that. Took it in a hurry, also, its farther along now than when the pic was taken. Ill try and update this weekend:

Completed Lord:
Image

Completed Zombies:
Painted up these 5 for a Deathmatch. I have 33 more to paint and then i will be finished all 99... it would have been a full 100 but i ended up using one for an objective marker:
Image

DE Ravager:
And finally my very WIP DE Ravager, one of 2:
Image

Anyways, thats it for now. As awlays, C&C is welcome!

Not much done painting-wise this weekend, however, Typhus just arrived so I hope to get a good start on him tonight.

Thanks guys! :)

Well, I sat down last night and was able to get some work done on converting the next unit in my CSM army; Chosen. Im planning on running them with 4x melta guns and here they are:

Image

have to do some GS work on htem, fill in some cracks and whatnot, but they are almost ready. im going to be making 2 more for this unit to bring them to 7, just to make it fluffy, and I should have enough left over to make some into plague marines.

And as a side thought, the infernus pistol out of the Death Company or Sanguinary Guard kit, comes in very handy when converting!

Let me know what you think,

Cheers!

They look good, you should do some head swaps and greenstuff to set them apart.

Well, last night saw a fair amount of work done on my CSMs, mainly Typhus and my Chosen squad. I was going to try and add some variance to my melta-chosen, but i had aready glued them and didn't want to screw up the details attempting to hack off the heads, so I left them. Instead, i converted the champion, and ended up getting them all primed and 5 of them are now basecoated and have the first layer on the armor. Anyways, heres the pics:

Chosen Champ before paint:

Chosen squad after paint:

And Typhus (i just finished the sepa wash when i took the picture, hence the gloss):

Let me know what you think, C&C is always appreciated!

Well last night we lost power at the house for most of the night, so I didn't get a lot done, however, I did end up getting a little more work on typhus done as well as another plague marine champ converted.

Well, no pics today, but I finally received my bikes, so hopefully it won't be too long before I get the conversions started and some bikers appear!
