Arnathos's's #theeweeklypaint 2018

Post by Arnathos » Mon Jan 29, 2018 12:27 pm

So, lets do this!

I've gotten 20 models done already, not quite 1 per day, but still good for 1 month. 19 of these you've already seen in my 2017 thread and the latest addition is:

An artists interpretation of Lewdgrip Whiparm, Blood Bowl star player. He wasn't really planned, but as I was modelling my Chaos pact theme I realized that the situation where a marauder/renegade lineman would actually get tentacles were very finite. Hence I decided to make him into a Star player as I already have a Nurgle team that can use him and it will be interesting playing a thrower on a bashy-ish team.
Using a Tzeentch model as a base does mean he lost some of his Slaaneshiness, but I tried to compensate with colours.

The rest of the chaos pact team has been coming along nicely, albeit at slight cost to my schoolwork productivity. I am still missing the elf and the rat, but I'll probably receive those sometime this week. No idea how long painting them will take, as some of the models are quite different and don't really fit my batch painting style. Especially the big guys and the Thaumathurge I'm using as minotaur will take a while to get 'right'. But it is a fun project, I also made an Ugroth Bolgrot model in case I get bored of the colour scheme ;)
Time will tell... Sooner or later... Time will tell.

That's a nice and smooth finish. And it reminds me of an Ork team that has been sitting on a shelf for a while now and wants to get painted. :)

Thanks guys! That means a lot!

Sorry for the lack of updates. I managed to finish some IG weapon teams but I misplaced my snow flock, so still no pictures.

The chaos pact team is coming along nicely, the marauders, Ork, Ogre, Troll and Goblin are almost done. The mino will need some serious blending on his skin, so I wanted to get the other stuff out of the way first. I'll finally be getting elf bits this Thursday which will let me build the dark elf, I have an emergency backup Skaven model in case I can't get a current edition one as well.

My main problem currently is, with this first part of the semester being half way done, school work is starting to pile up. I also need to chase after some companies for internships and get a commissioner for my future bachelor's thesis.

Things should lighten up after the spring break though, as I realised won't be able to do all of the theory before the summer, meaning I only have the normal course load for the 2nd half of the semester, instead of the current double. Hope I can get some painting in meanwhile, as well as some updates with pictures!

Also finished my Ugroth Bolgrot(Orc chainsaw) but haven't uploaded pics of him yet.

I'm out of Blood Bowl stuff to paint for the moment and 40k is still on a hiatus, plus the 40k stuff I have unpainted is mostly for redundancy so not in a hurry. With school being what it is, I decided to pack away the paint supplies for a while to concentrate more on getting theory out of the way. I did find out I won't be able to do all theoretical stuff from the 3rd year this year yet, but at least I've gotten most things done so I should be able to graduate in just over a year.

But yes, even less updates from here on out, probably more once summer hits and I have more free time(and money) to spend on the hobby! Besides plans to start a chaos dwarf team at some point this year(not just to be 'that guy' but also because I always wanted chaos dwarfs) and the evil, evil people over at the facebook Blood Bowl community have somewhat inspired me to make an amazon team, after seeing an amazing elven union/escher kitbash.

The plague censer bearer or the 2nd ed. clanrat? :P

The clanrat was a last resort kind of model.


School stuff is letting up a bit again. I noticed that my Chaos Pact team really needs Zzharg Madeye, so I started converting and painting him.

Will have to pots some pics of him and Ugroth Bolgrot soonish.

Actually noticed after taking the pic that I forgot to add a number to Zzharg. He now has the number 44 on his ballzooka. Did some research on Hashuts sacred number, turns out there isn't an official one, but a good case was made for the number 4 several times, so I went with that. 12 was also tempting but is usually already taken on my teams.

Those are some very cool models! It would have been fun, if the ball on the dwarfs ballzooka would have been removable... so you can put it on top of it, once he carries the ball, instead of sticking it before it's feet... or is it actually and the whole in the base just confused me??

This... Didn't occur to me at all! That would have been a much better idea! :lol: But at least now he is consistent with the rest of my BB models, but if I ever make a Baric Farblast I'll have to keep this in mind!

And thanks Guildy!

I have also noticed that I cannot stop myself from planning new Blood Bowl teams, I am sort of afraid that if I ever get a job it is just going to get worse, as at the moment budgetary constraints are all that are stopping me from making new teams. Escher/elven union kitbash amazons, even a Daemons of Khorne team, with Chaos Dwarfs I still have the Bull Centaur conundrum, as I'd like renders, but they are YUGE, but would get me an extra one for the star player as well. Khorne used to have the problem of the Blood Thirster, which I decided a Balrog would fit nicely, for the heralds I was debating dressing up Bloodletters vs using the Exalted Deathbringer and Skarr Bloodwrath, which again might be slightly yuge.

But again, its just plans.

I do have stuff I can paint for 40k and such, but I do not feel inspired, one of the main reasons for this is that I have switched from Abaddon black to Celestria grey undercoating for all of my painting nowadays. The thought of going back to black really doesn't excite me, as it is a bit more tedious to get a nice solid colour. But switching would get me a different end result entirely, which is also less than ideal.


To do list:
[+] Expand
Word Bearers:
- 20ish Space marines.
- 25+ cultists.
- maybe a terminator or 2, depending on bits.

Imperial guard:
- Regimental advisors(3 models).
- Scout sentinel with magnetized weapons.
- Start collecting Scions box.

Empire:
- Mortar + Crew
- 10ish infantry
- 0 motivation to get this done.

Misc:
- Archaon on Foot, still not found an inspiring paint theme, although blood bowl helps me test things.

The list hasn't changed much the past couple of years, it might be a pattern. I still haven't recovered from the death of fantasy, people around here are starting 9th age now, but it just looks and feels like ETChammer, something of which I have always been an avid opponent. The main problem being lack of inspiration to paint the few fringe models I still have laying around.

The thing with the chaos models is that I already have a metric ton of tactical marines, more than I will ever use in the current ruleset, whilst I don't have a lot of cultists, I do have over 40, which again is more than enough with the current rules, the black undercoat problem is also a big show stopper here, although I guess I should just get started/continue and might find myself inspired later. Plans to expand my raptor and warp talon wings have also sort of ground to a halt, this mostly because of money reasons, but then looking at what I spent on Blood bowl last year, this is not the entire truth :wink:

With the guard sentinel, I lost the assembly instructions, and the thing is a lot more complicated that the old ones used to be. The scion box just needs starting really, but I haven't had the time to play a lot of 40k, so it also hit delays. At least I got the weapon teams done. I also need to find my snow flock, to finish their bases, no idea where I put that stuff :?
