Death Guard Contemptor Dreadnought WIP (Part 2) - Dreadtober Challenge #2

Hello everyone!

This week I have continued work on my Death Guard Contemptor Dreadnought as part of the Dreadtober Challenge #2 and I must say that I reached a point with weathering that I am happy with. The main colors are finished and I will move on now to the metallics.

I have already did the base colors of the metallics, for both the model and the base. I know that this weeks challenge is the base itself, but I have it already finished since I was lasy enough to use a resin scenic base for my model :P

I have been working on the model for quite a long time, when I realised that I needed to be adding some green too, as the color sceme of the Death Guard has green in it, something that completely slipped my mind. So here I was, completely covering all my hard worked weathering on the shoulder pads and knee pads with green and of course I had to reweather the specific areas again... That cost me some time but it wasn't such a big fuss after all.

That said, here is the current WIPs of my model. There are a lot of things still needed to be done but I think we are getting there...

Hope you like my progress so far, I would love to hear your comments and remarks!
Till next time, take care!

Death Guard Contemptor Dreadnought WIP - Dreadtober Challenge #2

Hello everyone!

Joe from Broken Paintbrush got me digging up my Forgeworld boxes to build something I have purchased aeons ago with his Dreadtober Challenge #2 , the Contemptor Dreadnought

As you may probably have already seen from the pics, I tried to keep it as simple and original as possible. The model itself is a beauty and I dont want to spoil it with too many conversions. That said, I only added some Death Guard photo ethced iconography that I had laying around, adding to the model fluff and flavor. The model is based on a resin base from
Oddly enough, the model proved to be a pain in assembly mostly trying to find the correct pose. I wanted to pose it like it is searching for its next target, setting aside all obstacles in its way.

For the painting part, I am planning to keep it as close as possible with my other Death Guard models, extremely weathered and battle torn.

Keep an eye on further updates as I will start painting it soon, as part of the challenge I must keep the project rolling and finish it by the end of the month.

As always comments and remarks are more than welcome!

Carnival of Chaos Plague Cart

Hello everyone

Quite a few time ago, I had a small talk with a friend of mine about how great Mordheim really is. He and his local club had just started a small campaign and I thought that it would be really nice to jump into action and remember the good old days. My all time favorite Witch Hunter warband would be glad to burn some witches once more but I thought that a new one would be much better. In our talk we also discussed about the ridiculus prices Mordheim models and warbands are sold on ebay and the discussion ended on the Plague Cart of the Carnival of Chaos.
the original model that Games Workshop released
This model goes for prices of up to 150 Pounds on ebay and I really didn't want to spend all these money on such a (not so great after all) model. Therefore, the idea really came into my mind, I should make one of my own.

Not so long ago, I have purchased my own 3D printer and since then I had a ton of fun creating all sorts of things, so I have decided to use it for this project as well. 

I have found a nice file over the internet for a carnival cart and I decided to use this as a base model.

After quite a few hours of printing the end result is the following

The end model have been extensively converted and modelled to create that slimey and rotted look that papa Nurgle always favors. The driver is based on a plastic Skaven model with lots of sculpting to create the robes. Tiny bits and pieces were added to the cart, trying to avoid going overboard. I wanted to keep that one simple yet full of character. 

clickie for biggie ;)

The paint scheme is mostly based on the original model. I liked the contrast of the boney white areas with the dark brown ones. 

I hope I you like the model as much as I do, I would love to hear your comments and see your votes on CoolMiniOrNot.

Thank you, till next time, take care! :)

Skaven Chief Warlord Engineer Ikit Claw

It has been such a long long time since I posted anything on this blog. I hope there are still people seeing my updates :P

Anyways, here I am once again, finally managing to finish something off. Something I was building for quite a while now. You have probably by now seen my Skaven army building up through the pages of this blog. If not, do so now ;)

In any case, I have always been fascinated with one of the most infamous Warhammer characters, the great Skaven Chief Warlord Engineer of Clan Skyre, Ikit Claw. Being a long time Skaven collector, I happen to have the old model of him, not that I dislike the newer version but as I always like to say, no school like old school! I always loved the character and the extreme details that this model have.

But let the pictures just do the talking, I guess

The model stands on a resin Armorcast base. I don't think they made these anymore, if they do please let me know as they are really great! I think it really makes the model stand even more out of the ordinary and it really suits well with the general archaic industrial feeling. I decided to go with a slightlty different color sceme than the original model, mostly because I wanted it to have a more fresh look, using metallics and washes to create this gritty and mechanical feeling. The banner is completely scratchbuilt from greenstuff and hand painted, using the original banner as a model.The base is finished with a pool of green shiny slime because... well nothing shouts out loud that an experiment went wrong more than green shiny slime ;)

As always I would love to hear your comments, remarks and anything else you would like to share with me, plus if you have the time, leave a vote for this fella on CoolMiniOrNot

Till next time, take care!

Expanding the 3D Universe

Hello everyone!

I would like to share with you my latest achievements using my 3D printer. I have been mostly toying with World War 2 themes, and following my latest post with the British HalfTrack I wanted to show you what I have managed to pull...

I will soon post a painted update on the Bishop SPG I incuded in the gallery above so keep an eye on this space for the end result! 

I am also working on my YouTube Channel with the unboxing of my 3D printer and some 360 degrees model showcases!

I would love to hear what you people think

Till next time, take care!
