UndaHive Skum...April "before" pic up

Post by PourSpelur » Thu Jan 23, 2014 9:53 pm

So I'm not really a ZM guy but I skimmed the rules thoroughly. That said, let me know if this isn't a legal list. My end goal is a Russ heavy mech guard list of Nurgle worshipin, mutie lovin, baby eatin, rats in tanks. Using Mantic's Not-Skaven as vets and converting every vehicle.

ZM half, Defender formation:
CCS, 4 flamers
Vets, autocannon, 3 grenade launchers
Vets, autocannon, 3 grenade launchers
Vets, autocannon, 3 grenade launchers
Marbo
2 naked Leman Russ in a squadron
2 naked Leman Russ in a squadron

In the second half of the challenge I'll: Do the chimeras ( no dedicated transports :( )
Add another Russ to each squad
2 Basilisks
Some other stuff... :D

Here's a tester tank I did to see if I liked the colors, try some ooey gooey flesh techniques and generally play around.

Definitely in love with the under-hive skum guard idea. Will have to put that on my list of things to do once I get all the free time and money I want. 8) I'm not positive on this, but I was thinking you couldn't use the Leman Russ for the Mortalis force. I thought it would be more than 4" wide which is one of the rules for ZM. Can take a look at it here http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Downloads/P ... Update.pdf on page two and see what you think for yourself.

Good luck man and happy hunting (and Painting),

Awesome idea! Always was a big fan of savlar chem dogs, this is along the same lines and your paint scheme is very striking.

Leman Russ without sponsons is only 3" wide! I don't think it could go around a corner though...

Well gentlemen, you heard the man. I take my trophy and retire as Champion. So long sukkas!

Awesome! Love the graffiti and the "orkish" scavenged look to the weapons. Keep it up/ :D

On the tester tank, what was your recipe for the pink and red slime on the back - on the back left by the grill and on the box at the back? I really like that colour combination and would love to steal it!

I think my favorite part is the tentacle girl art on the side. Awesome!

Thanks for the comments! They really help motivate me :D
ElectricPally: I'll have mutant pin-up girls on all the tanks. This was the first one so I went easy on it, next one'll be huge
Cicero: Means a lot to get some love from a guy who's army is looking so badass
ResponsibleOne: Super easy scheme. Base coat bright bubblegum pink, do center apple red, drybrush heavy ivory/off-white. Wash some areas with blue, others with purple and others with pink. Have some areas only washed with one color and others with multiple. The slight differences in tone give a cool organic feel in my opinion. The wash will tint the white more than the red and pinks. Then a light white drybrush. Actually really easy! Hit me up if you want actual paints, not at my desk right now
