Sperian's #theweeklypaint ... late to the party

Post by Sperian » Sun Oct 01, 2017 4:58 pm

Hello all!

It's been a few months :D I've been quite busy so not done much painting but have put a few things on Instagram, all of my previous posts/photos got deleted from my WIP thread so I decided to have a little break from the forums... but now I am back!

Here are a few pics of my old minis (as the previous ones have all disappeared!)

Thanks both!

My.next project is going to be a looted Redemptor Dreadnaught (as a Deff Dredd) because i love the new model and its posability (my friend has an Imperial fists one he has just finished)

My FLGS was all out so i was unable to get one for the weekend but decided to build a klaw in preparation for when i can get one from some platicard and bitz, i will probably paint it seperately and stick it on afterwards

Image

My favourite parts are the platicard tubes to make the pistons and i was quite pleased with the klaw too. The 2 black claws are toes from the Gorkanaut kit and the thumb claw is one of the spikes from the stompa kit trimmed down a bit.

I also used one of my favourite spare bitz which is the wrecking ball arm and chain from the trukk kit to make the mechanism inside the had to look like gears and chains to operate the claw :D

Overall this took about 3 hours

Tankbusta Nob kitbash

I was quite pleased with how the gun came out, its just a Nob slugga with some flash git gun parts added, the head is a Mega Nob head, all my tankbustas have red helmets to make them stand out but i hate painting red so i added the blue checks to the middle to break it up. I repositioned both arms with greenstuff to open up his pose a bit because i didnt like how the arms looked. Other than that i just chopped a rocket in half to stick it in his spare hand and added some ammo and a bomb to his back.

He’s really cool, I especially like the little visor on his helmet. The bomb on his back looks awesome too.

Hi All

Ive been busy painting some minis for a boardgame called Gloomhaven, a bit of a break from 40k. The difference in quality from these minis to GW is quite noticeable and i wish that id spent more time tidying them up before priming, but here they are...

OMg NON ORK models?! /me faints

heheh they look cool though!

There's a definite, if sometimes undefinable, divide between minis made for wargaming, and those made for boardgames. Although sometimes the boardgame minis are a lot closer to miniwargaming quality. Anyway, looking forward to more!

+1!!!!

This looks absolutly amazing! You really did a great job, especially considering, that you actually build many of the pieces from scratch! I like the joystick the ork is holding to operate the Dread, it's a very nice touch!
