A project I am currently working on for a friend are these custom bases. They show urban terrain or what is left of it after decades of warfare. Debris, dirt, skulls, shells some grenades and wrecked tec. The red stuff is miliput.

A step by step turorial on how I constructed my Broadsides. The conversion is not very difficult but requires a lot of time and work.

Since the official bloodcrusher models demand for quite an investement I came up with an idea for a conversion. The basis are the 2008 Dark Elve Coldones. On top I sticked a bloodletter. The prototype works nicely although the Bloodletter is rather big compared to the slender mount. I needed to break some jonts and greenstuff them in their new position but alltogether it was rather simple. The prototype will become the leader of the pack and therefor has his mount modified to shw off a little.

edit: WHOAAA deleted my post somehow- reposting although I do not remeber the exact wording. Sorry

Painting, basing and converting on some models on commission. The colorsheme is more on the classic side. The Greater Daemons are all a little converted- The last model was a former commander of my own army and is heavily converted from the Belakor model. He is based as a mini diorama showing off his magical missiles against another unfortunate Khorne Berzerker

This stuff is giving me some headache. It doesn't seem to work but I don't know why. Just you wait, you lousy little widget...

TESTING

SUCCESS- the picasa speciality with generating the string "-h" after the picsize killed it all the time (and I was thinking I was too dumb). Now let's get posting.

For you others out there if you need help with incorporating it into a blogger.com account you may find this link helpful:

I managed to assemble the members of my Grim Angels Deathwing. As you can see there are 25 Tactical Dreadnought Armours on the move. These are mainly Black Reach models combined with a box of assault terminators and two special characters which form the HQ selection.
I will post pictures of my commanders in seperate posts.
The assault cannons are converted from the landspeeder kit- I got the parts from www.forgeworlds.de for € 2,- the pair- quite reasonable I think. This demanded for some greenstuff work as I took mainly the thunderhammer and stormshield arms as a basis. The result is lefthand-wielded assault cannons and powerfists in the other hand- which I created by chopping up lightning claws (didn't like the flat claws anyway)

Here we have a comissionwork done for a friend. It included repainting without basing. His conversion of Spacedwarfes is rather nice and the oldschool rhino complements the squad well.

edit: I later also got the comission for bases and conversions of obliterators and a daemon price. You can find these pictures on g-gs blog here

The colorchoice is a hardhitting combo of violet and shiny gold. Highlight are done with pink and silver after washing with devlan mud. I painted freehand symbols on all the shoulderpads and the rhino as well.

Picture I just found on my laptop:
It shows three of my exodite transports (count as Dark Eldar Raiders) on their display board during a tournament.

It is four years after finishing it that I come to take photos of it finally. In the meantime I remember several tournaments with him having fun and winning me some major conversion points. The lowlight was a german player who dropped the hardcover rulebook (4th edition) on it during a game- by accident of course when handing it over to a friend of him. It was then totally dismanteld and I had to rebuild it.
Anyway this was always the centerpiece of my "Sons of Mayhem" Chaos Space Marine army and I love him still.

Mayhem on two feet!

Converted from various Ork, Spacemarine and Tyranid bits. It features a removable front armor and steps on an unfortunate Khorne berzerker. The configuration with two close combat weapons was always my favourite since it's capable of doing a lot of upandclose damage while not being that dangerous to my own troops when suffering from firefrenzy. As a bonus it draws a lot of fire.

I must shoot pictures from it as it is now- hopefully it's not too damaged since it's rather high age and lot of use in games.

I have finally assembled enough parts for me to build the 1st Company of my Spacemarine chapter "The Grim Angels". I will use the Black templar rules for them since I am a fan of Assault Cannons. I also settled on a Symbol which all my Terminators will field on their shoulder. It is not my design and I wonder how many of you will recognize it and tell me wehre it's from.
Since the weekend is coming up and I am stuck at home ill again I may actually get some work on it done. So far I habe removed the flesh of them and did the main conversion I needed to build the assault cannons arms.

edit: After drawing the logo several times on paper I decided to not paint it freehand on the shoulderpads. It's just too small(for me) to reproduce correctly. So I did some research and ordered decal transfer paper for laser jet printers. Also after consulting an article on BolS I purchased Micro-Sol and Micro-Set. I hope this will help to hide using details which I haven't done for years.

Since I am moving articles from my website to this blog I thought it would be a good idea to take some pictures of models that I do not have by now. So I present you the painted version of the character Nightmare.

I was a big fan of the sega dreamcast game "Soulcalibur". This is my first epoxyputty sculpt ever and I used miliput standart for it. I was then very pleased with it. The base which is a cap from a bottle was later replaced with a real base.
