Pimp my Terminator

There is one bad thing about the new Blood Angel Terminators , they make the multi-Part kit ones look bland and flavorless.

The Space Wolf kit is full of flavor as is the Chaos kit,but not our standard $10 Terminator.

So in my quest to make a Kill-Team for every major faction for my Space Hulk game I need to go the extra mile to get them on part with the Blood Angels.

To do this Forgeworld Shoulders go a long way to give your guys a needed boost.

Which I use for all my multi-part guys.

I also use Iron Warrior MK3 Helmet which fits great and instantly gives them a Pre-Heresy feel.

For the Brave and the Bold I used Plastruct Strips,Granht line rivets,and Procreate to give this guy a chest plate that strongly resembles a Mk2 Crusade suit.

Bulveye in Terminator Armor Pt1

I am making a 5 man 13th company Killteam led by Bulveye Axeman of Russ.

He is Described as bald with a close cropped blonde beard.

The best Head I could think of was from Tellion.

I will magnetize the head so I can make a power armored version and use the head for both.

He is also Described as using a Plasma Pistol which I have the perfect one for the power armored one.

For this guy I am using the spare combi-bolter that comes with the Librarian.

Imperial Fists Assault Cannon pt1

I haven't felt much like painting the last couple of days.

But I was hit with the modeling bug.

I fixed the Chaos Sorcerer,Have Bulveye just about figured out and have put together this gem.

An Imperial Fists assault cannon,customized with the use of Forgeworld Shoulder pads,an Iron Warriors head for a Pre-Heresy Artificer helmet.

I used the smallest chain I could find online to use as a necklace for his Crux and used a larger scale chain for his tabbard.

Black Legion Sorcerer still in progress

The other head seemed not right for some reason.

Maybe for a World Eater but not quite right for Sorcerer.

I found a really good head in the Fantasy range that looks positively evil

Lexandro d'Arquebus part 2

I have added the Yellow Ink wash made from GW Yellow Ink and Matte Medium
I have also hit some of the detail, I still have lettering to do,fine tuneing and basing.
In fact I have about 15 bases to do at this point.
For now it will be a slender Space Hulk style base that will eventually mate with a detailed 40mm base.

Lexandro d'Arquebus

My Imperial Fists Space Hulk boarding team are led by two Captains instead of sergeants.

The other Imperial Fists Sergeant for Space Hulk is Lexandro d'Arquebus many years after the events portrayed in Inquisition War.

He is still in the beginning stages he is base coated and spot washed/inked.and is now being cleaned up so I can yellow ink the armor plate.

They mention the clenched fist as his heraldry in the end of Space Marine and I have painted that on his shoulder-guard.

Lysander part 2

Here he is with the yellow Ink glaze, it adds a richness to the yellow.
I think it was a mistake for GW to stop making the Ink range.
They behave differently than washes and are superior when it comes to tinting as you see here.
Both have thier place on the paint caddy in my opinon.

I used this tutorial to make this yellow


I do have painters ADD I cannot seem to do more than 5 minis before I have to switch armies.

Right now I am doing a few Imperial Fists and the first one is the Capt of the First company, Lysander.

For Space Hulk he will be Sgt Gideon.

The yellow is just the basecoat and with get a yellow wash to enrich the color.
I am really pleased with the shoulderpad and how I went about painting the badge in a new way.

Imperial Fist Terminator Sergeant

He I go again,I am starting to run out of chaos terminator parts and I just received my Forgeworld package today.

5 Imperial Fists Shoulders

5 Deathwing Shoulders

and the Chaos Khorne Termie Lord.

I had this guy made for a while waiting for the Forgeworld Shoulder pads.

I added rivets to his left greave and used the Deathwatch head because it rocks.

I am also doing Lysander to fill in on Gideon missions.

Black Legion Sorcerer in progress

Here is my proxy Librarian a Terminator Sorcerer

I altered the staff so it would look different than Falkus's chainglaive by clipping off the flat blade and added a skull spike instead.

I used the infamous skull head that comes with Chaos warriors.

Black Legion Autocannon

Well we all know there were no assault cannons during the Heresy.

now I know they could have looted one in the last 10,000 years but I in fact like the look of the autocannon better.

Either way Brother Leon better watch his six for the vile Laranus

Black Legion Thunderhammer & Stormshield

To copy the other sergeant Gideon,I used a chaos warrior shield and the mace from the chaos termie kit.

I altered the arm a tiny bit and greenstuffed the gap,to give a more open pose.

I found the way the arm fits normally is entirely too stiff and throws the model off.

I dub him

Black Legion Lightning Claws

Here is Brother Claudio's Doppelganger,

Klaus Caraddonon

The Chaos Lords head with the Eye of Horus looks alot like the Headgear from the cover of Horus Rising.

Once again using the Granite base/w black wash and freehand Eye of Horus icons.

I love how he came out.

Black Legion Heavy Flamer

What I am trying to do is make eeeevil counterparts to the Space Hulk troops

This would be Brother Zael's evil twin,Zarragoddon.

I use Tamiya weathering powders to mimic heat scorch on the barrel.

Chaos Spawn

I made this Daemon out of the plastic spawn kit.

He will be the Daemon for my Space Hulk stop the ritual games.

3 of his eyes have pink-eye,I think a nurgling farted on his pillow.

The Despoiler

This is a piece I have wanted to do for some time.

I made the Pre-Heresy version of him ages ago now the time has come to make the completely evil 40k version of him.

My Chaos Space Hulk missions will have to deal with races to find artifacts and stop the Summoning missions.

I have even built up a couple of chaos spawn to act as the summoned daemons.

Black Legion Lord Falkus Kibre

I am making a few Black Legion to be aggressors for my modified Space Hulk.

Until he is canonically killed he is Falkus Kibre of the Justaerin.

The painting is heavily influenced by Master Darksol at the blog All Things 40k.

I love how he added the old iconography on the cloak and I stole from that.

I also love the look of using Charadon Granite with a Black wash to have aged black armor.

It comes out perfect.

Here is the finished model for my Deathstrike conversion.

I am magnetizing the Heavy Bolter and Flamer to give it more versatility, and have modeled
both camo-netting and extra armor in the form of spare track links on the side.

I have tried to make it look more real by adding pioneer tools and extra fuel.

I am just sad I do not get to paint this.

I may have to do one someday for myself.

Deathstrike in Progress

Here is progress on my Deathstrike launcher.

I've added the Launchpad by modifying the basilisk's gun shield and adding a bracket I got off of a dollar store paper lantern.

Now I get to add on details,prime it and it's done
