[Project Log] Czar Ziggy's Enemy Forces (Update Apr 12)

Post#1 » Jan 11 2010 04:06

Well, its only 5 days until the rerelease of the Tyranid swarm, so I figure I should show off my first and origional army. This was where I started Warhammer 40k, and in a few days, I'll be back making my swarm larger. So here are a few shots. Unfortunatly, being at university, this army had to remain at home, so I will not be able to provide more shots (except for what I buy and make here) and some shots may not be perfect. :sad:

I am working on some Raveners now, and once the release happens, I will have more to show.

So, I've been more busy this summer and fall with non-tau projects and I just wanted to share some of the work I've done so far.

Image

And my Necrons Color scheme change. I've begun changing them from beaten cooper and skull white to a dual red (gore and blood reds) with blue highlights to make them more like a Mass Effect Geth pic I found inspirational.

And this is my WIP Landspeeder Storm with snipers

Image

Image

Image

I've also got more projects on the go. Namely; Drop pod, Rhino, Gargoyles, 2 XV8s, and a squad of Necron Warriors.

Good evening ATT Community. After over a year of the origional plan, set back by the lack of plastic sniper sets for the conversion, I have finally finished painting my landspeeder storm! I am very happy that this project is done and it looks very nice I think. The snipers in the back are not glued in if in the event I'm using it in the game and need them to disembark, though that's not my game plan for this unit. Taking advantage of the open-topped rule, I'm hoping to use this more as a mobile sniper platform. But here are the pics of the final product!

Also, some more of the shots from my mass picture taking day.

Hi Czar,

Read through your posts, curious to know what blues you are using on the Carapace? really striking combo. :)

Your wash of the Biovore(?) really brought out the details around the throat etc, one Bug Ugly tyrannic beast that. I want to paint one now too! :D

Hey Tael! Its my newest approach to my Tron themed Tyranids! I'm doing the Carapace with a layer of Skull white, then several layers of Asurmen ink until it's as dark as I want it. Then I gloss it. Same method for the Green, just Thraka Green wash instead. The unit I think you're talking about is the new Pyrovore. When I finally got my hands on the new codex and saw its pictures, I just wanted one too! Thanks for reading through my posts!

Edit: I did for get to mention Teal that I use Ice blue to highlight the edges of the carapace.

Hey ATT! Now for something not Tau! Since my commando team is done and I'm trying to force myself to finish the drop pod before starting any other vehicles, I did a slight repaint of my forge world tyrant. I'm also almost done my last few gargoyles. So Here are some pics!

Hey all at ATT! Long time no project post. I've been working more on my non-greater good armies. Especially my beloved Tron Nids! So here are some pics of my new units!

I can't tell you guys how much I love these new Ravener kits!
Image

Image

And I'll post them here, but a WIP shot of my Por caste diplomat and my Rogue Trader.

Thats a bit of what I've been doing this past while. There is probably more than $400 worth of stuff on my to do list still. Gotta...stop....buying......more.......stuff!

Hey ATT! Long time no update. Well, good news! I have an update! Some WIP shots of my simple kit bash Tyranid Prime. From the Torso up, its a Ravener, from down, a Tyranid Warrior. Since the two creatures are relatively similar after the last codex release, it made sence that if a Tyranid Prime was just an Alpha Warrior, that it would be slightly bigger and so, it turns out, are most of the parts for a Ravener. The only thing left for this guy is just cosmetic, I'm adding two little rippers to the base and he needs the sand done on the base. Otherwise, he's done. So here are some shots!

You'll probably see Nids the most this summer as I have, lol, well a swarm of them to paint! :P But don't worry, I've still got a few Tau projects on the go as well. Its nice to have a little diversity in what I'm painting.

Hey Czar digging your Nids I like the Green and black it allows me to don the rose tinted glasses and thing fondly of Aliens :D I also would suggest doing something to your Marines like a really watered down black or Blue wash to show some of the curves and detail of the Armour because it is a little too white but otherwise they are all good :P.
