Mopping up the streets - finished

This one took way longer than i would like it to, Mainly because i often got distracted by other projects and the fact i kinda lost the steam to do this one when i realized the diffrences of painting quality between minis i painted the first and later ones. I simply learned new tehniques along the way. But IMHO i still managed to make everything work togheter quite well. Anyway i don't think there is much more i can say so i will just show the pics :D

[ZN40K] Belial Conversion - part 3

Hello again! I had to wait for some Dark Angels bits to arrive, instead of getting them on wednesdey they arrived on friday -_-

Anyway I managed to finish bulding him and started base coating and did some work on his base
Here are pics:

After consultation with Hive Lord Decay I decided to re-do the sword, and now the Hive is pleased, it would be great to hack some of his spawns with it one day :D

 And here we have the start of the base, this is the "scenic" base but i'm still thinking about doing a "game" base in case i would ever play 40K.

Started base coating him with Tamiya Dark Green:

And you can see another Ork in the background

As a bonus for those who managed to read/scroll to this point: those are my space marine parts/bits that i managed to colloect - with a great help of my friends: The Beard and Hive Lord :D

'Till the next update hopefulyy soon!

[ZN40K] Belial Conversion - part 2

Time for next update, but first i wanna share with you that i actualy managed to finish something for HLJ contest - not what i originaly planned but still something decent IMO.

Now for the progress on Belial, after many many tries i got the basic shape of his sword, altough i would love some comments on it (too thick? too short?), now that i look at it it needs a lot of work still.... oh well :D

Also started adding bits and pieces to main body (head is still on blue-tac) as well as one of the arms.

According to The Bearded One - his proportions are now a lot better and more realisitic, wich makes me happy cause that's what i'm going for (aside from the Rule of Cool).

And let's have some size comparisons as well.
next to normal marine:

 next to terminator:

That's all for now, stay tuned for more!

[ZN40K] Belial Conversion - part 1

I just finished another of Warhammer 40K books and got really fired up on this new project.
I want to make a miniature of one of Dark Angels Captains - Belial, but i'm not going to make his "late" version as a Master of Deathwing, instead i want to make him as a 3rd Company Master - as you can see him in The Purging of Kadillus by Gav Thorpe. It really is a good book to read.
At the begining  there is a ilustration on wich i will roughly base my mini

Of course i'm not going to be very strict with that, I don't think I would be able to use him in game tough at least not with WYSIWYG.

My main goal is to make him look cool.

so this is what i did so far:

And here is some blu-tack mock up with arms and head. yes i'm using power fist and i'm going to sb his sword. (or at least try to)

 And a size comparison with regular marine:

Hopefully i will have more to show soon!
