Excellent work! Krell is easily one of my favorite models around. Such a cool and menacing model.

that looks great, the corpses are really 'gritty' I think. Also, love the detail on the face on the driver! Great job there

Thanks, I painted the skin of the rider at the same time as Vlad, so they turned out quite similar.

On an unrelated note, I finished the Warlord and Konrad, pics should go up this weekend along with a potential new unit for Skaven, depends on what the hobby store I'm going to has.

Sorry for not posting in a while, school has been piling up. But yes, I have been painting. Should I finish my essay and assignment this weekend, I should be able to get some pictures up of Konrad, the Warlord, and some Black Knights and Hexwraiths.

Sorry for not updating these past weeks, I've been pretty busy with exam season rolling along for school. I don't know how much painting I'll be able to get done, and I realized yesterday or the day before, I don't have the cord to transfer files from my video camera to my computer with me, so I won't be able to do a video update. Which is kind of upsetting because I have all my fantasy models next to me (minus the terrorgheist).

On a semi-related question, I found out that I glued the pelvis of my terrorgheist backwords. By that I mean that the one that should be on the left side is on the right and vice versa. Is there a way to fix this without destroying the model? I don't want to ruin it before I get to paint it.

ooh ouch =/ did you superglue it? Superglue can usually be prised loose if you're careful. Not sure how that bit goes together or how fragile it might be. You can put it in simple green, to remove the superglue - but that'd prolly remove more than you want. Maybe someone else will have a brilliant idea. Good luck!

Personnally, I use Crazy glue. It's not too hard to detach the pieces if they aren't fragile. What kind of glue do you use?

Freeze it for 30 minutes. That will make the bond brittle, and easier to break apart. If it isn't coming apart fairly easy, freeze it longer/again.

I swear by this, done it a lot winning auctions.

Thanks for all the suggestions!

To answer your questions, the glue I used is Humbrol Precision Poly Cement. And I assembled the terrorgheist in February and didn't discover that I made the mistake until the beginning of April. I also won't be able to do anything about it until end of April/beginning of May.

I love that model and you did a really good job capturing the decay on the bodies. Death isn't pretty, but that model is :)

Are you referring to the corpse cart? If so, thanks a lot. If not, thanks anyway.

Hey, I know it's been a while since I last updated, but I have a big update that will be coming within the next day or two!

Expect a video of progress with all my Fantasy minis out.

I also finished another model and got a new one for my Skaven army. You get to guess what they are.

Hint for completed model: It's a Rare slot in the army.

Hint for new model: It's a Rare slot in the Skaven army.

To those who guess correctly, I have nothing to give you, unfortunately.
