Seregon - Night Lords

Post by Seregon » Sat Jun 04, 2011 1:07 pm

Knowing full well that I'll likely fail horribly at this, I'll join in on the fun. Hopefully it'll push me to at least do more than I'd have done otherwise; so I'll win even if I lose..

I'll be using Codex: Night Lords which I'm working on over at the "The Codex Project" site, so please let me know if you have any questions about it. There is a link to the codex itself in post #3.

Thought I'd start off with a picture of most of the Forge World stuff. There are quite a few extra plastic kits that have been bought in bitz on eBay, so they're in various boxes around the apartment.

This should be something like 1½ sets of the Red Scorpion upgrade kits, 2 sets of MkIV armour, 1 Dozer blade, 1 set of NL rhino doors/front, Sevrin Loth, 2 sets of pre-heresy weapon upgrades and about 20 pre-heresy jump packs by Chapterhouse.

Right. My list has been tweaked (again), a schedule has been posted and some progress has been made.

First Claw progress:
The legs have gotten a basecoat and a highlight and the torsos and heads have gotten a single layer of basecoat. Quite a bit to do there, not least fixing the stabilizer fins to the jump packs.
Image

Land Raider progress:
Since before it has been airbrushed with a blue basecoat. Now I've splashed on some basecoat on some of the places that aren't supposed to be blue; a bit Tin Bitz, some Bestial Brown, a touch of Scab Red and a dab of Chaos Black. Pictures of this one will come when I've done a bit more on it during the week.

Always nice to see so much Forge World stuff. Can't wait to see it get painted!

Especially the "Unrelenting Despair" sounds very interesting...

I do apologize for posting this a few hours late, but I wanted to wait for some natural daylight to take the pictures in.
I'm also aware that there are no lightnings to be seen yet, and I'm also considering to add some wear and tear on the Predator at a later stage, but that will likely be the very last thing I do in march unless I change my mind and attempt it in a few months. Please don't hold this against me. :)

July commitment:
July
- Paint and assemble First Claw
- Paint first Predator
Status: Complete

First Claw:
Image

Predator (actually the very first vehicle I've ever painted, and was actually in this state as late as the 28th (http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10235380/IMAG0181.jpg)):
Front
Image

Side
Image

Back
Image

It can also disassemble itself and as soon as the side doors and top hatch is done, it'll be able to double as a Rhino; making it into a Rhinator!
Image

Coming plan for August:
- Assemble and paint Second Claw + Champion
- Assemble second Predator
- Assemble dreadnought "Ultio"

Cool! It looks great!

I had doubts that you would make it. Well done!

You should give us some semi profile shots to show off those evil tracks of the predator.
