Alright guys, this time I'm going to blog on how I paint the Space Hulk's terminators. It took me awhile on thinking how this project to be started. Been asking myself the question on how I am going to basecoat these terminators... I actually basecoat them black using a local available flat black spray - local - only cost me around 2bucks to get the whole terminator sprue black coated. The problem with this spray is we tend to over spray the model until the details gone! so I decide to spray sparingly just to cover most of the sprue black... and basecoat with GW's chaos black paint. :) I tell you... effective and cheap! haha.After basecoating, it is time to get the amour done. After much research, I decide to follow what done by GW, basecoat with blood red, few coat is necessary cause the red doesn't blend well if only 1 coat. Afterthat, wash it with baal red.Example. Will blog more as I progress... :) cheers!
Hi guys! I"M back! just to let you guys know that I'm not dissapearing from the warhammer world.. just that my life being stuck with many many things (wonderful ones :) ) just got back from collecting the this from a client that want my help to get his space hulk terminators painted.. yes... my first ever commisioned work! I'm excited yeah! and love the sprues.. so much details on them.. being thinking on how to start working on them, I will make it a project to update you guys one by one on how I get these guys done ya. Don't worry, for you guys are wondering what happened to my Orks.. they are still here.. I still have 1 more Nob to paint and will get them on the photo shoot soon and show ya'll! Cheers! signing off!
Its been awhile since my last post, my work demands lots! and I don't even have the time for gaming also! nevertheless... :) this is what happening... Warboss Headcrusher is gathering his boyz day by day, and his warband has been growing! last seen in black reach(since these models are from the black reach set :) ) hate everything concerning imperium, his reputation has since attracting the remnants from black reach gathering under his warband and will soon once again terrorize the galaxie!
Hahaha hope this workz guys, not good at writing stories... :) will update you guys more on Headcrusher's warband soon... currently painting the Nobz!
Alright guys, first of all thanks for all the awesome compliment on my Abbadon! here is how I convert it :) basically I have spare bits to spare on doing this of course :)
stuff I used
Chaos terminator body.
Chaos terminator "trophy rack" X2.
Chaos Lord on terminator(CLT) head.
CLT Lighting claw.
CLT shoulder pads X2.
CLT front cloth.
2 CSM bolt pistol.
2 CSM head (I only need the hairs - you know what I mean? for Abby's hair)
CSM aspiring champion's trophy rack.
SMarine's captain's hand with power sword.
Bloodletter hell blade.
green stuffs, cutting blade, drill... and stuffs
Well basically the conversion part is done heavily on Abbadon's Horus Talon and the Daemon sword he has. On the Talon, I just combine the bolt pistol together-cut of the handle and the bullets and glue the bullet bits beside both the bolt pistol to make it similar to the original Abby's model and glue it just on top of the lighting claw to create the Talon.
Next, on the daemon weapon, I need to sacrifice one of my bloodletter to do this! cut of his hellblade and swap with the power weapon from the SM commander's hand. Note: that you will have 2 parts of the blade and it will get tricky though on gluing it together.
for Abby's head, just cut out the hair that you can find on some of the bits on the CSM sprues... don't worry... you will have plenty :) and finally the left hand, due to the SM commander's arm is small (Power amour) I need to stuff the arm with green stuff until the terminator shoulder is well fitted on the arm. I do hope all this helps guys haha, I should take the photos on the sprues before I convert him and get him painted!
Yea, after a long time disappearing from the scene thanks to my all time slow connections at home! finally! I can update one of my newly converted Warmaster of Chaos! Abbadon... From using bits from Chaos Lord in Terminator amour, Chaos space marine, Chaos Daemons bloodletters even the bits from space marines and not to forget some greenstuffs! Next post I will post on how I convert using all the stuffs alright.... now at least this doesn't look like the original blister from GW... GW's Abbadon looks weird to me hahaha, hope you guys like it!
Alright guys! time to post one of my painted raptor aspiring champion, planning to play a sorcerer slaanesh Lord with 5 raptors as bodyguard, doesn't do well in the last game, the raptors did blowup a Land Raider before sacrificing themselves to the terminators that came out from the Land Raider. It does slow down my opponent plans though, were else my Slaneesh Sorcerer lord does get killed before he manage to do any damage... hmmm.... need to play them well! Yeah, that's my recently finished model from the raptor squad! :)
Alright guys, I just got my Raptors going for a week already and I'm progressing on the Aspiring champion. Following is some ways on how I get his face painted enjoy!1. I get the face/skin whatever it is painted with dwarf flesh, beware of applying too much paint on especially on FACE! I say it again FACE! yes, it happened to me when I applied too much paint on face... I tell you what, when it happens... forget of getting the details back :) so, a thin layer will do.
2. Wash with Badab black, second layer Dwaft flesh mix with elf flesh is aplied. 3. Yep, after that process, wash with Orgryn flesh... wait for it to dry and apply another layer of elf flesh(Thin) on the raise area on the face...
Hopes that helps. :) I will get you guys updated with the progress on my raptors ya....
