Cult of Inevitable Decay WIP Thread (2016)
« on: January 29, 2012, 06:11:29 AM »
So here are some shots of the first squad of nine guardsmen.  Robes are done, metals have base coat and first metal coat.  They will get a highlight next then rust coat then a bit of another metal highlight.  To make my life hopefully easier, all these guys will get the same skin tone, to match one of the command groups whom they will accompany.  The next squad in line will get the other skin color.  I tried to do the robes by memory from the command groups, but ended up having to redo the last three or so layers, once I put some of the finished cultists in front of me.

Enjoy

Finished the rusty steel effects today.  There are a couple small bits on some of them that will be made to look like corroded brass/copper.  Skin is yet to be started then there isn't much left on them.

So here are some more shots.  I haven't had the time I would have liked to spend on these guys lately.  Skin is almost done, two layers left.  As stated in a previous post, rusty steel parts are done.  I'm really happy with the way the gauntlets look, all rusty in places.

It does look cool and tunnelly, just a little hard to see the detail and work you've put in.

Skin and leather leggings are done now.  Just have weapon staves and some little detail bits to do.

Getting frustratingly close now.  All that is left are the staves and three guys have some little glass vials to paint.  And so little time to play.

Feb 28, finished squad except for a bit of work left to do on the bases.  Look for pics soon.

Well no pictures as of yet but, I have decided to complete the 'monumental' task of assembling and converting the rest of the squads before painting the next one.  Part of the reason for this is that I am making a reserve tank for my air compressor, which I use to spray on my testor's white primer.  Converting the compressor to work with a tank has made it a pain in the butt to convert back to directly connect an airbrush.  I may even do a 'how to/this is what I did' for the air tank.

Back on track.  The second straight out of the box squad is fully assembled and put on bases.  The squad with double handed flails is 5/9 completed with four waiting for weapons.  I only had four of the flails that I wanted the whole squad to use so I have to wait for the rest to come in.  The fifth is the champion with a slightly absurdly sized flail, but a hero needs to stand out a bit.  I just started on the squad with single hand close combat weapons and shields.  I'm thinking of calling them Helmsplitters or Skull Spikers (or something) due to the weapons I've come up with.  I have two done, except for attaching the shields.  Need to make a suitable weapon to make the hero stand out.  Will get pics when I can.

Here are some conversions I've done.  Two squads, nine troops.  Eight regular guys with the same weapons and a champion with a different, but hopefully related-ish weapon.  There is even a nifty pic for scale purposes with one guardsman and three of Trollforged's Demon Worms (I have nine to keep unit consistency)  I still have one squad left to assemble/convert.

First, the squad with hand weapons and the shields they will have with the champion.  Shields and weapons are from GW Dark Elf warriors box.


Second, flail guys.  Flails are from GW Empire Flagellants box.


Third, I bet this guy's thinking 'Dang, good thing these are on my side!'

I just got the rest of the flails I needed on Friday and have attached them.  Soon they will be ready for primer.  Now I have my air tank finished and tested so I can get back to work.

I just noticed, you either did these conversions a year ago or got the year wrong in the title.

As stated elsewhere got 27 guardsmen primered.  The converted guys previously posted now have been made totally white as well as the second standard hook-prod squad.

Have been working on the second unconverted squad.  Their robes are done and after what felt like far too many attempts, their steel bits are done as well.  The only difference between this squad and the first one is this second squad have masks, which I've made metal.  I'll try and post a pic soon.

Have been trying to get time to paint.  The next squad in the works is the one with hand weapons and shields.  Their robes are done as are their steel parts, with two having skin base coat done.  Long week at work means tired boy.

Sorry for tardiness beefy.  This last squad is done except for the faces of their shields (finished the backs yesterday) and bases.
