Sarkastik's #theweeklypaint 2015

Post by Sarkastik » Wed Jan 07, 2015 10:27 am

Well, It looks like its that time of year again!

Going to try (again) to post more regular updates, if for no other reason than to force myself to get some progress done each week. I just purchased a new airbrush, so learning which end points where should help with that as well.

A few of the things I plan on finishing up, or at least getting progress on are:
  • Chaos Army - Marines, Daemons and Renegades oh my!
    Space Wolves
    Dark Eldar
    Skaven
Thats all for now, Hopefully will have some pics soon!

Cheers!

I have only used my brush once since I got it and that was just to play with it... I too have been (mostly) building... but when you have >100 zombies to build... yeah...

Thanks! Right now im trying to decide if I want to make the infantry zombie-esque, give them a Death Korps of Kreig style, or go with standard converted Guard... sorry... Astra Militarum...

My personal opinion is Death korps of krieg style. The only army i would actually play if i went for the "good guys" :)

Im strongly leaning towards the DKOK style... but I have my eyes on some non-Forgeworld lookalikes that are relatively cheaper.

Finally had some time to sit down and figure out my airbrush. Managed to get some priming / basecoating done for my Chaos army, so here are the WIPs:

Hopefully I'll have some time to get the next colors on them.

Chimeras would look interesting if you swapped out the lasguns for bones or even reaching tentacles.

The best part is that tentacles are probably the easiest thing to make out of green stuff.

Well, its been a while since I was here last, I guess 11 months.. as it turns out I burned myself out on painting, but this past week decided to test the waters again.

Here is a WIP Chaos lord conversion that would work as either a chaos lord, or count-as Kharn. Right now I have just been working at the basecoat, but hoping to have some more details done on him this weekend.

And, Bonus, a Firespray re-paint I helped a buddy with. Affectionately known as the "Frankenfett".

Let me know what you think!

Cheers!
