Welcome to the skrall archive! unfortunatly astro's server changes and software changes have removed the early images. working pictures of old works start on page 36....

this is not an undertaking for the light of heart.

I do appologies for this, astro is temprental. these are some bits from my iron warriors and early lunar wolves

oooohhh, I like them! Its a little bit difficult to make out the details, I think you just need to work on using your new toy.

The luna wolves look especially good, but the land raider looks like it might just pip them in the detail stakes.

The lord just looks mean!

btw, is the Luna Wolves \"mobile of doom\" mentioned in the next Horus Heresy?:laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

looking forward to seeing more of these, and to you getting a better grip on your camera (I finally admitted defeat with mine and I\'ve bought a mini-tripod to eliminate my old mans \"shaky hands!\")

Skrall

preditor that one is. I\'m gettin a pre-heresy land raider come day and i\'m geting some trant turrent for them. can\'t beat 15pt av10 turrets. lasproof Hbotlers

10-09-2006, 01:24 AM
Greetings astronimican, on this most auspious of evening i thought i\'d take a moment to inform you of \"Project Darkwind\", my chapter. I have played with many chapter, but asides from my Blood ravens and iron warriors i rarely stick to one army. So i decided to have an army which lends itself to my own characteristics. Basically i am thinking of a A) Dark Angels Successor B) B.)Traits army.

The name gives the theme of the army, Death on Swift wings. I\'ve begun test models and here is the plan for the anitial force. (bare in mind this will be over a while, before i go to uni mind)

HQ: SOme form of captain based on something i\'d make in Dark Crusade later in the year
Librarian

Elite
Terminators (suprise suprise)
Techmarine on bike (50% marine sculpt, 20% bike sculp)
Dreadnought (probably 3, one venerable)
Assault terms


Troops:
No Scouts. Ever.
Tact Squads, about 4/5
two razor backs

Fast:
3 assault cannon weilding speeders,
3 bikers and melta attack bike

Heavy:
Pre-heresy land raider
Devasators (2 squads, one heavy B team with infiltrate or drop pod)
preditor of some form, maybe a vindictator (FW)

So.... where to begin

i\'ll make a 1000 point list to help with the base force,

HV

That looks like it\'ll be an interstin conversion if you manage to pull it off. Would look awesome on the battlefield.

Skrall
01-10-2006, 12:21 AM
yeah, i\'d base the model on the nightbringer and work from that

Hawke

Scolar
01-10-2006, 12:26 AM
Have you got a close up of the marine. It\'s hard to see anything except for it uses red and orange.

Skrall
01-10-2006, 12:28 AM
yellow :p go onto GW web site and go into the marine chapter gallery under \"emperors hawks\". my colour scheme, i\'m gonna play about making it a darker blood red however

Hawke

Scolar
01-10-2006, 12:31 AM
I take it you use a webcam for your pictures then. Instead of using the Nightbringer why not use the Deciever? You could make the cloth around him look more like feathers and in my opinion make the chapter master look better.

fridge61
01-10-2006, 12:36 AM
For a darker blood red you could have 75/25 mix of scab red and blood red. It works for me!

Scolar
01-10-2006, 12:38 AM
Yeah or alternitively you could paint the armour blood red then wash it with the mix thet fridge just mentioned. I did a similar thing when painting my Word Bearer champion\'s armour.

mark
01-10-2006, 12:45 AM
nice idea how many space marine armys do you have now ?

Starks333
01-10-2006, 12:54 AM
i suggest not using the nightbringer hes like 4 times the size of a marine, it would look like hes a daemon prince

as for red, blood red is orangey, so if you want a dark red start using red gore its the only red in the GW line thats actually red, scab is browny, blood is orangey as mentioned

if you want dark start with brown it will darken the reds naturally, then move up

otherwise find vallejo paints and use scar red, its a VERY nice bright red

Starks

Scolar
01-10-2006, 12:55 AM
I reckon Dark Flesh is the best GW brown to darken red and give it an undercoat. It has a slight reddyness to it.

Skrall
01-10-2006, 01:03 AM
wotcha all.
I know starky ;) i\'ve using assault marine shins and groin with gs thighs for the base. using some half city fight terraint to boost the height for a flyer as well as to link him to the extended loin cloth i\'m workin on. look ok so far

as for red: its a 50/50 for a hightlight, 75/25 for base coat with a brown ink overcoat

Hawke

Starks333
01-10-2006, 01:12 AM
you should consider more layers if hes your centrepiece

also make sure the ink is watered down big time, or it will simply turn the red burgundy, which is not what you want(well from what you said)

Starks

Skrall
04-10-2006, 04:53 PM
The challange is this:
To convert a model (painted or unpainted) that follows the theme of
\"heroic last stand\"

The miniture base has to be the 40mm (or the base you get with terminators, the larger none standard infranty base), and can be in any terrain of chosing.

The competition shall run until the fifth of november (when i shall display my own miniture ;)), the winner will receive either a black library novel or a original sculp by me*.

The rules:
40mm base, as stated
The model can be no larger than a tyranid warrior. No vechiles or monsterous creature, though this doesn\'t include orgryn and such large beasies.
Models can be only 40k.
Points will be awarded for the use of GS/ clever use of parts, but this isn\'t a requirent since not everyones rich.
You have until the fifth.

Remember remember,

*If the sculp is chosen as an option it will not include any model of the mosterous statis, only infranty and heroes. Savvy?

Hawke

Hephesto
04-10-2006, 06:27 PM
Great another conversion contest, another reason to keep going for another month:P


Hawke, so you\'re going allout on the green stuff?

Skrall
04-10-2006, 07:29 PM
gs is green stuff, and i\'m going for a all GS sculpt with my novemember model, and the possible competition prize model. Entants do not need to use GS, since its a skill

Hey adder\'s Don\'t forget, confidence is everything!

Does the model have to painted and completed? or do you just want the general pose of the model?

Mycosynth
04-10-2006, 10:25 PM
So basicly this winning model ushers in the new Hawke Heresey?

Skrall
04-10-2006, 10:27 PM
The model must be complete, but can (and preferably for the point of judging should) be unpainted.

hawle

Starks333
04-10-2006, 10:28 PM
im not fully sure what you mean by your theme

do you have to display a \"last stand\"? and if so would this not be a duel?

or just in a fighting pose?

can we have more than one model on the base?

oh and why no DPs?

Still keen to enter anyway.

Ocelot
04-10-2006, 10:46 PM
So only one model allowed? So that means it should have a hero pose on it to look like it is in a last stand?

Scolar
04-10-2006, 10:47 PM
If it is one model but we have to use a large base then I can\'t enter because I have so 40mm bases. Only heroes you say?

Skrall
04-10-2006, 10:49 PM
do you have to display a \"last stand\"? and if so would this not be a duel?

Last stand does not imply CC. It implies a warrior (hero or not) fighting for their lives


can we have more than one model on the base?
yep, your making it so creative freedom is impleid


oh and why no DPs?

Monsterous creature

just take pics of it before you paint, then paint it and take more pics, im pretty sure the non painted is so he can actually see the conversion work

it also helps for good quality pictures as sculpting should be as smooth as possible and bad pics can sometimes make it look like the GS is bumpy when its not

This is a really good idea Hawke. You have inspired me so much that I have just bought an Assault Termie boxset and 22cm of GS.

other than that hard to judge a WIP sculpt, the chest does look a bit wide though

Size is fine, but its a tad more than 2:1 scale... I tihnk you\'ll find that he\'s about 4:1 if you work it out...

I\'ve started collecting imperial fists people, and tommorow i\'ll put up some shots of my first marine and chaplin.

I\'ve finally got round the 3rd company, despite having planned to start two years ago. It\'s an all infrantry force, well i\'ll include a dread and termies, but not real tanks.

The concept: Three forces of the astronomican.


The maintainer:
An adeptus Mechanicus styled army, for those who like making and converting small forces and guard groups. Either astarte, or IG



The Defender:
A astarte chapter of the astronomican, for the marine players.


The unseen ally:
Tau players basically in our astro sceme.

++++

So what do we think? we\'ve got some diffrent players at diffrent army levels. Personally i fancy an admec marine/ig force.

A few people want a marine force, and others want tau. The concept is we\'d build diffrent force, i\'d (well the mod crew) would write a campaign for it to bring them together in defence of some important thing, ending in some bloody struggle.

Just an idea....

Mycosynth
21-10-2006, 05:38 AM
Sounds pretty cool! Would we have to paint our guys a certain way? Cause im still in the process of building my tau (only a Shas\'O and a FW squad so far:( ) but already have a colour scheme. Either way this sounds promising.

sounds fine, gets as many people in as possible with a little more than basic marines which is always handy

now you just need to establish firm colour schemes and such

I\'m planning a khorne force...

After making my model for \"pro-painted\" ebay sales (i\'ve got the skill, just a shite camera) i got to thinking. My lord has lighting claws... and he looks like he about to throw himself at the enemy

So then 300 popped into my head...

And then... the idea that scared me the most...

a 300 strong khorne force... 300 men, dedicated to khorne.

What dya make of the idea?

So you would need more than 1 FOC to get all 300 men. Becuase in a Khorne list they would be troops only.

8 +6 = 14. Max armour for any tank/superheavy.

Mk6 was somewhere between the m34-37.

Anways, yeah the rulez,

The model must be an infranty man, of any unit or type.
He can be of either side of the line. (no xenos folks, even eldar)
The marine must and i repeat MUST look like he was in the horis heresy. not just a box set marine in the colours of the smurfs. entries such as will nbe deleted with EXTREME prejudice.

Two catagories are these: Best painted & Best conversion.

Looks clean (in a good way) with some good shading. Hard to say because (well you know already) the pic is a bit zoomed out.

K, here is the guide for it pending picies.

Base coat: I use either bubonic brown, or dessert yellow.
Layer 1: Dessert yellow (skip is base coat)
Layer 2: Bleach bone overcoat, leave some of the under layers showing
Layer 3: Skull white (or if you are a more acomplished painter skull white with 25% bleach)
Layer 4: Skull white highlights for those who took the more complex path

A simple guide, but unbelievably effective.

Picies soon,

Hawke

Nice one hawke - I\'m just painting my Battle suits commander and this\'ll help get the white head looking just right.

I\'m going to wait on pics for this one, because I\'m looking for an icy white for my general, at the moment, fortress gray to skull white is looking good, although I\'m considering some experiments with ice blue up to skull white...
