Thanks guys!

its been a while since i posted, been making a bit of progress, but also got distracted trying to finish my basement, which means a lot of sheetrock, frustration and time :) I havent made much progress on CSM recently, kinda lost interest for the time being, so they are taking a back burner. My O&G have been sidelined a little too by the fact that I found a random box of clanrats when moving stuff in the basement, so I ended up building and painting them up, along with a Doomwheel, which is mostly done, other than some of the details.

I must say that the Doomwheel is one of the craziest models I have ever built and painted, and I havent decided if a second will join it or not.

This month im going to be focusing on the skaven part of the IoB set, which I ended up splitting with a friend, however i must say i was extremely disapointed when opening the box as it was missing several sprues worth of models!

Anways, after a wall of text, heres some pictures!

Doomwheel Pilot - will post updated picture this week

Clanrats - Will post pic of full unit this week, but heres an idea of the color scheme. Other than the Metallics / Cloth its done with washes.

Cheers!

CONTACT GW!!! Seriously, they will make sure you get what you were shorted. I buy a ridiculous amount of stuff from them, and they've fixed every problem I've run into. Try and have the box on hand, they may ask you for the batch code on it. If you don't have it, it's easy enough just to tell them you split it with someone and don't have it.

Also, be sure you check the sprues completely. They are mixed between High Elf and Skaven.

I love Skaven, it's an army I've started and sold several times now. I'm getting the urge again, just to build and paint some crazy stuff. I haven't played Fantasy in forever. You've also tempted me to by the Skull Pass set still at my LGS ;)

One thing i have found out about GW is that, despite their crazy pricing, their customer service is outstanding. I plan on giving them a call after work, as I intend to get that bloody sprue! I cut everything off and separated it, and despite tearing apart my kitchen / livingroom, i couldn't find the runaway sprue!

I fought the urge to start skaven for a long time... i think its partially that they are so easy to paint and part they can cause almost as much damage to the enemy as they do to themselves!

Haha, the BFSP was my first foray into the warhammer universe and holds a special place for me, so i must insist... buy it!

Well, its been a while since I last posted, but I havent taken (too much) of a break from painting. As of right now I have finished up The skaven from IoB and am almost done the doom wheel.

I am hoping to take some pics this weekend.

Cheers!

Wow, its been a while since I posted here... Time really flies.

I havent been doing a lot of painting since I last posted, mainly because life decided that things were too comfortable and figured flipping everything around would be a good idea, however, I have started back slowly and here are a couple of WIP shots of some Necrons...

I ran across some rusty necrons doing a google search and decided i was going to try and replicate the scheme, but with blue OSL rather than green. I still have a lot of tidying up to do, but here they are so far:

Hopefully I'll be posting a little more frequently than once every 6 months...

Let me know what you think!

Cheers!

Thanks! It was really just an experiment and i just kept going with it... the best part is how quick it is to do...

my skaven have come to a standstill lately, mainly due to lack of motivation... and the fact that i really don't want to assemble another 60 rats.. tried to force myself this weekend... got 2 together... we'll see how the week goes.

Oh.. and more necrons:

Still have some touch up work left, but im rather pleased with how they turned out, as well as how quickly I can hammer them out... have 2 immortals left to prime / paint before moving on...

Let me know what you think!

Cheers!

I like them! Though I do think the rust tones need a bit of variation, try stippling a bit of a darker brown and reds. The Night Scythe blue could have been thinned more, so it looks more like light. Your Lord is a great example of how to do it :)

thanks for the feedback!

Yeah, I am going to have to touch-up some of the blue on the scyhe... It was late when i was working on it and i was just wanting it to be done.. haha

I found that the browns i was using dried darker than i had hoped... I think i will try what you suggested and add some more varied browns to it... vs the 3 that i used haha.

Cheers!
