BFG?: Kill Kroozer WIP - More power! She's giving all she got Kaptun....MORE POWER!!

I think we all can agree that More Gunz! and More Power! are very Orky things....thingz....whatever.

So, I've been adding more and more engin gubbinz, and started working on the basics of the prow. Atm she will be a hair shorter than your average Imperial Cruiser, so she is a good size.

 Prow scaffold. Looks shit now, but is easier to get all the gubbinz in place and gives a feel of her size. She is a big girl compared to a GW metal Kill Kroozer....

More power! Even more Power! And enough radiation leaks to kill all life on a small moon by now, but hey....More Power!

I'll flesh out the rest of the prow, work on the winglets, and find something that could function as the command bridge. After that add more gun turrets, final detailing and pop her on a base.

Syrian Dalek

Added some extra armour to my BMP VBIED and removed the crew....most of the time it will be a static target anyway. Also added a Syrian Dalek...basically a towed BMP-1 turret. Yes, really.

BFG: Kill Kroozer build WIP

Was kindly asked to join our BFG campaign. I have my Imperials painted and ready to go, but would like to add some Orks. I have a disused fleet, and plenty of escorts, but I always hated the Ork Kroozers and BattleKroozers shape wise. I will sell those off when I finish enough ships by scratchbuilding them.

This is a few nights of kitbashing into the first Kill Kroozer, as yet unnamed.

Torpedo prow or gun prow, not sure yet. Big base or small base....also not sure yet.

To Zim or not to Zim.

More progress on the Munitionspanzer for FotR.

More sandbags and added a crew.

First bits of Zim to dry and to be chipped later.

Need to buy new Milliput. This batch is past his shelflife.

Tyranid Killteam: Don't think some Paracetamol is going to cure his headache....

A tiny bit of progress on the lead Stealer (for now anyway)

Used a Forge World torso I picked up a while ago, and a skull from the ever so handy Citadel Skull box. When it has all dried, add sand, then sculpt extra toes on the other foot and fix the cuts in the leg.

Much more to do.

Tyranid Killteam: puttypushing

A bit of progress on the miniFex...Genecarnie....whatever.

Isn't it adorable? Did the rest of the armour and the shoulders, scratched and dented as they are. As soon as this is dry I might add 1 or 2 plates behind it on his spine....or I may not. This guy is more of a Defensive Tackle kind of guy. I used Old One Eye (the original one) as my inspiration, and I'm trying to figure out if adding smakk cheekspikes fit him without hindering the movement of his claws (which are still seperate for ease of painting, and unfinished putty wise). But mine has no eyes as those have been plated over, so the tongue counts as a sniffer of sorts.

Tyranids. The sky is the limit...even if the rules don't let you.

Hive Fleet Kraken spotted! Yes, that one, with 28mm models. On my very table.

After being asked to get a Killteam ready, and having painted some (unsuccesful) tests on some old 2nd hand Genestealers, I ended up on the Hive Fleet Kraken paintscheme.

One of my "voluteers"

As I am rusty as fuck painting 28mm models, and I would have to paint a fair few of these, I found a nice tutorial, and with wat paint I have for them, all I needed to order was a extra bottle of Seraphim Sepia was as mine was running low. Ferry (Crayne) gave me few army lists so I have a guide of what to build, so here I go. Nothing earthshattering painting wise, but I do try and be as neat as possible as my hands will let me.

My first 2 normal Genestealers with Scything Talons and Toxin Sacs. All the hard and stabby bity bits will be red, Toxic stuff will be Green with an orange wash so visually they are easy to reognise. All blue tongues cause hey, I like animals with bright blue tongues. Need to trim the base, varnish them x2 and tuft/debris them, but I will do that in one go when I have more done.

Also started up basing the large bag of ....whatever the heck they are, spore puffers, I dunno, and painting them. Say hello to 6 orders of Spaghetti and red sauce!

Just for use as markers I guess? Never played Killteam, so... I have 6 more of them in the pipeline, and as soon as I can find a base for it, I will base the big gaping ...mouth? as well.  And also started basing some of the spore mines cause why not.

 Little bit of work done on GS No3, who is getting the same loadout, but with Extended Carapache. As I really don't like just adding the silly looking plastic plates on his shoulders and calling him done, I want to put some Greenstuff to work for him/her/it.  Also gave it a second contactpoint to the ground....I'm sure he looks all fine and danky raised up on a toe, but I prefer to have my nids survive trips to where I game and not break off at the ankle. Then shave his tongue down, and extend the plates on his head as well and I'd like to give hm the small pointy rhino horn looking thing on his snout as well. I see his Extended Carapache as extra armour so his arms might get some as well. He could be a one off, who knows. I hear the Extended Carapache does not work all that well with Genestealers but I at least want to build and paint one.

So yeah, me painting 28mm stuff again. Who knew :)

Paintrecipe (just in case I lose my notes)

  • Prime white
  • Paint base with Vallejo Surface Primer 73.606 German Green Brown (RAL 8000)
  • Wash in Citadel Seraphim Sepia
  • Drybrush with VMC 123 Dark Sand including the base
  • Wash with Seraphim Sepia  in any of the centilation pores (I really don't know what they are) for better definition.
  • Paint armour and stabby bits VMC 146 Hull Red
  • Highlight armour and stabby bits with VMA 71.003 Scarlet Red
  • Paint the "eyes" and "spine" of the Toxin Sac in VMC 073 Park Green
  • Wash the Toxin Sac with Vallejo Model Wash 76.505 Light Rust
  • Paint the tongue VMC 068 Light Turqoise
  • Wash the eyesockets with Citadel Nuln Oil or any other black wash
  • Highlight the eyes with white
  • Wash the eyesockets with VMW 76.505 Light Rust
  • Base is now 73.606 German Green Brown drybrushed with VMC 123 Dark Sand and then VMC 004 Off white
  • I'm assuming a black trim will suffice, but I need to chat a bit about that.
