Title: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Dread on December 20, 2015, 01:45:37 PM
Well it now begins. Thanks to Cavalier inspiring me, I shall commence work on my own army. I'll start with my blasts from the past. I've had them a long time and get to utilize them along with my firestorm conversion. I will pics as I come up with them. Now I need to come up with a cool name for them.

And it begins with a freaking bang! Damn man you're all geared up for Corsair action. I'm super jealous of your vehicle collection... Are you gonna rock these colors you've got here or do something different? I know you were toying with new paint schemes awhile back. Either way its gonna rock. Can't wait to see where this goes!

Thanks bud. I've already got so much done with that scheme so if it ain't broke, ya know.

Forgot this lil puppy earlier.

I love the scheme Dread.  It's very alien and exotic.  Perfect for the eldar!  :)
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Cavalier on December 21, 2015, 06:41:38 AM
Right on man. I think it works very well. Its very wild and vibrant perfect for Corsairs. I'll never forget the first time I saw that scheme on an Eldar Vyper in the White Dwarf where Sisters debuted (and my old store owner won 2 Golden Demons!) I've loved it ever since. Right on!
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Dread on December 21, 2015, 08:58:13 AM
Thanks as always guys. This is the scheme I've been using since 2nd edition. The idea was the cooling of lava from white hot to red cooling down. The crack effect is bigger on the white to show slower cooling down and smaller at the back for more.
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Irisado on December 23, 2015, 06:59:07 AM
I've always liked that red to yellow part of your colour scheme.  It's somewhat reminiscent of that GW's painters used for the original Fire Dragon Exarch in the old Alaitoc studio army.  I like a bit of nostalgia now and again :).
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Dread on December 24, 2015, 01:12:40 AM
Thanks. Hopefully I will get to some more over the holiday. I started my prince. He is the custom model I made for Baron Sathonyx and will count as jet pack. Also loving this scheme on a DE and have some reavers bike set up to put dark lance on then they will get the treatment. Until the Merry Christmas!

Post by: Irisado on December 26, 2015, 09:11:42 AM
That does look very cluttered, but in a very good way.  The Nightspinner is the stand out for me.  The colour of the monofilament weaponry contrasts very well with your colour scheme.
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Cavalier on December 26, 2015, 11:54:20 AM
Looking very nice Dread. The bikes are looking killer and it looks like your army is very quickly taking shape! Any idea on how you are going to kit-out your bikes? I've got a couple of lists in the works... nothing special on mine yet but I'm very interested in mounting a bright lance or two on them. Any thoughts on the various options?
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Dread on December 26, 2015, 09:31:40 PM
Thanks Irisado, I still have work to do on it but I've always liked that blue.

Cavalier I'm gonna make 4 reavers bikes with dark lances, bits left over from my razorwing to void raven kit bash. Glued one last night to see how it looks and really like it. The ones I've started are Las and shur cannon.i got 3 for Christmas that in gonna mix reavers parts with to mix it up. Maybe some splinter cannons, I think that's an option.

I will update soon, until then, have a great time.

Now see Cav, all that time I was going nuts for a paint scheme on my DE, I should have just used my Elder scheme. I would of had so much painted now.

Post by: Cavalier on December 28, 2015, 06:52:54 AM
Looking very good Dread. The metallics on the jetbike are pretty crazy! I hear ya on unifying the look of your DE with your Eldar. I'm really reaping the benefits now as I can run my kitbashed Wyches and counts-as Harlies as Malevolents or Voidstorm squads.

Two questions: Are you adding Crimson Death to your force? If so you cheesy.... just kidding I'm going to add it to mine as well! Also what are the falcon hulls for? More Nightspinners?

Your making great progress Dread and doing it in style. Keep it up my man I can't wait to see this army hit the table!
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Dread on December 28, 2015, 12:47:38 PM
Thanks. They are fire prisms. The metallic is going away to sport the scheme. Its just crazy doing that to the DE but it works so perfect.

(http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll62/DeathbyDread/Mobile%20Uploads/20160115_155314_zpsqfpchmi2.jpg)

So today got guardians and storm upgrade. I've had the wyches for awhile. Now with these and my bits box, I should be able to do some cool kit bashing. Pics soon

(http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll62/DeathbyDread/Mobile%20Uploads/20160115_194308_zpsmn6bjftv.jpg)

Digging through boxes today and found these. Built them years ago.
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Cavalier on January 16, 2016, 07:53:11 AM
Hell yeah! Perfect pick-up Dread. Those Dark Eldar warrior and Wych kits go a LONG way. Hold on to every little bit because you never know when you'll need them. I seriously love the Wych kit, those running legs can make any model go from static to dynamic. Whats the first unit you're gonna make? Voidstorm, Malevolents?

Love the old school stormies. I buy up those Eldar powerfists whenever I can on ebay they are seriously my favorite eldar bit of all time. Anytime I get the chance to incorporate one (as Agonizers or Scorpions claw) its a special day for my army. Heheheh I love this stuff... anyway Dread looking great my man can't wait to see what unit you are gonna make!
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Dread on March 26, 2016, 04:31:56 PM
And so, been working on other things, and thought I would post some pics as per Cavs rrequest. Also Cav, I found lots more elder flame and meltas and power fists in my bits so you will be seeing lots of those soon with kit bashed wyches, guardians and converted hellions used as corsair jetpack troops. For now my Imperial Knights with skitarii allies.

I wanted to be able to change weapons out so came up with a way to interlock without magnets. I cut out tabs on shoulder joint and weapon and press and turn viola.

Wow excellent, excellent stuff Dread. That Knight with turqouise plating is freaking INCREDIBLE. Such an eye-catching execution on that paint job and the posing is really menacing. The Magos is really nice too, ultra clean execution and super nice weathering on the robes.

Also love the bits my man. Those 2nd ed Eldar bits are my favorite bits of all time.

Anyways great stuff man, awesome to see the new army. Keep it up Dread I love it.

Rockin man. The checkers on the sword are awesome. Love the bright vivid colors they relly really pop while still remaining grimdark. Do you use the purple as the base for the Warplock Bronze?
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Dread on April 10, 2016, 10:42:02 AM
Nope, just lighter shades of purple. The trim will be silver but the w bronze might look better trim wise. Thanks

Post by: vonny on April 11, 2016, 03:17:46 AM
I really like the highlight effect on the top one, it looks so natural, somehow. I can't ait to see the other one painted like that too. It looks great!
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army

You've done a really good paint job on the knight.  :)

(http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll62/DeathbyDread/Mobile%20Uploads/20160422_162134_zpstuo4msqc.jpg)

I've also been going back to my eldar some. Its always nice that they , GW, gives us so many extras in the kits that sometimes you just wonder what to do with them. Some people ebay or trade but I just hold on to them. Then I get a spark and reserct some old falcon models and get out the mold putty and resin and the next thing ya know, another prism and night spinner.

(http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll62/DeathbyDread/Mobile%20Uploads/20160422_043905_zpszzj2uqoh.jpg)

Also finally bought a void raven kit. Check this, mine that I converted years ago is 7n primer.

(http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll62/DeathbyDread/Mobile%20Uploads/20160404_193642_zpsuhg6teqm.jpg)

Until next time, happy gaming!
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Cavalier on April 23, 2016, 07:18:32 AM
Damn thats a beastly cohort of Knights man. Like the weathering a lot. Although I think it would be sweet if bases could use some wreckage or debris of some sort. The new red and black Knight is looking particularly imposing.

Thats a huge mess of bikes you got there too! I really need to get a couple more bike kits so I can finish some of my units. I never buy enough at the outset.

The Void Raven thing is really crazy too. I like the longer lances on your converted one a lot more. They gave them stubby little lances on the VR and the Crimson Hunter and I really hate it. While the Void Raven is WAY over priced its actually a pretty decent unit IMO.

Anyway great stuff man and keep rolling with those Eldar!
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Dread on May 2, 2016, 08:03:47 PM
Thanks as always. Even tho we don't play age of sukmar, I still have a small gaming group that still plays 8th ed fantasy. I still love the models and own several armies. Lately we started a campaign which got my juices flowing so started my conversion for my vamp lord on aabyessal terror. Here's the beginnings.

Post by: Irisado on May 3, 2016, 05:01:26 AM
I've been looking at how the people behind the Ninth Age have updated Warhammer to see whether it has been made more streamlined.  The army book for Vampire Counts looks quite promising, but I still need to read the core rules.

Speaking of things looking promising, your conversion looks as though it's going to be very good.  I also like the idea of using the female Vampire Lord model in this conversion, as most vampires riding monsters or steeds have tended to be male, based on GW's previous preference for male vampire models.  As a result, this has the potential to be a more original approach.  I'm looking forward to see how this progresses.
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Dread on May 3, 2016, 05:39:08 PM
Thanks Irisado. We've been talking about 9th age too. Have it downloaded but haven't read much yet.

So here they are as of right now. My conundrum is how to put them on the base. Should I use a coat hanger and drill holes? Use the long tail and Attach it to the side of one of the pedastals? Any suggestions are welcome. I have to do it tomorrow night because she will be in a battle Thursday night.

Also, I have all of the fulcrums from the storm of magic just collecting dust, so great fantasy base material. The new fantasy stuff only comes with round bases so thank goodness I have build your own movement tray left oversaw to use to make what I needed.

A little touch on the base.
(http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll62/DeathbyDread/Mobile%20Uploads/20160503_154000_zpslystq5m2.jpg)

And Morganna...

Don't worry, she is magnetized for easy painting.
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Irisado on May 3, 2016, 05:46:32 PM
I was going to say that you would have a challenge on your hands with the painting until I read your last comment :D.  I'd say that using the long tail to attach it to the side would look rather dramatic, but I'm not expert when it comes to modelling, so I don't know how easy that would be to accomplish.
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Dread on May 3, 2016, 05:55:34 PM
It would be fairly easy and since the actual model is made to balance on the tail, well you know. However, the altered nid wings make it a bit heavier. I really don't want a black pole jutting up from the base so may go with the tail. Gonna ponder it and finish the rest tonight. I am so amped about this one, been in my head for awhile now. Good to finally get it happening even if it slows my paint and conversion work on corsairs and knights.
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Cavalier on May 4, 2016, 07:20:26 AM
Wow, I don't know what it is... but its legendary! One of these days I'm going to get a fantasy army going the models are just too insane. Fantastic stuff Dread, very ambitious. Can't wait to see it finished!
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Dread on May 4, 2016, 04:43:44 PM
Thanks. The break down is the Vampires Mortarch kit with hive tyrant wings, bits from the ghouls kit, her body and head is from the coven throne kit and a fulcrum for the base. Its a good thing to hang on to left overs, I have so much from both games, but you know that already. So now i have to get my tired butt in the hobby room and finish the build part. 8)

So I got my butt in there and here is the outcome. Whatcha think?

Post by: Irisado on May 5, 2016, 04:55:13 AM
That looks really imposing and impressive.  I think that balancing the model on the tail has worked out extremely well.  The coat hanger wire would have looked out of place, so you've definitely made the right decision.

Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Dread on May 7, 2016, 12:30:36 AM
Thanks guys! This is the long and thought out one.

As for the basing, I plan on gravel and stones with some tall grass growing in different spots. Out side the little cave entrance with the ghoul will be variuos bones from his prey and some bloody flesh looking deposits. May even be some other things but I don't want it to get to busy.

Post by: Dread on June 14, 2016, 10:41:53 PM
Lately I've been all over the place. Trying to do lots of different things. I get hyped about a model then get so far and stop. I know we all go thru this but now I've hit that that platu with an eldar model. The autarch with a banshee mask, been waiting forever so it could be WYSIWYG. Well, the waiting is over. I'm using my favorite second generation bansee, with new jetbike and autarch laser Lance. Here is the beginning pic.
(http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll62/DeathbyDread/Mobile%20Uploads/20160614_212918_zps1deej7ka.jpg)

I feel like the banshee mask should be on a female so in my corsair's, she will be a princess.

Looking killer Dread. Having the pattern go all the way up the lance and onto the banner was a good call. The fade on the bike itself is really nice too. Very cool basing to boot. You've got yourself a really great Autarch, congrats man now get that sucker on the tabletop slaughtering fools!

Thanks. I agree with the metal model thing. I don't like 'em either but since no plastics yet and all the metal banshee I have, made it work.

Had to cancel my game the other night so hopefully Monday night she will make her debute. Cav, I hope I remember to take pics so can do a bat rep.

Looking good as always buddy. What is that mini on top of the dragon head? That thing is epic!

Glad to see some paint on that crazy dragon-creature too. That thing is such a monster.

Good stuff as always bud, especially considering your limited time. Keep it up!

She is called a bloodweaver night witch from Warmachine. I haven't looked at that line of models in a long time but when I saw her at the store, I thought perfect for my barbarian in our quest game we're about to start. Also wanted her to be kinda majestic, noble, strong and the dragons head just really made sense. Just as excited about her as my vamp on her ride but easier and faster to paint.

Just have some touch ups on them and finish the bases. Still not 100% on the transfers. I did some others first just in white but didn't like them. The bikes I really want a stealth look and the symbol to stand out to show the dragons attack, like striking fear into the enemy.

It's been awhile since I've been able to sit and build anything. I've been needing one more shadow seer for my Harliquins and having two of the static poses already, I started this one. Let the glue dry and a little putty work I will be able to field Cegoach's revenge.

Phenomenal work Dread. The chequer pattern on the loin cloth is brilliantly executed and must have been a complete bugger to paint because of the folds. I like the way you have painted the leggings and hair as well. Everything about this model screams Harlequin.
What model have you used for this?

Fantastic work Dread. The posing of the mini is fantastic and the end result is just so dynamic as a result. I'm glad that you found such a good solution to the problem of static builds, it can do so much to bring an army to life. Loving the eyes as well!

Great stuff.
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Dread on November 20, 2016, 11:26:52 PM
Thanks Looshkin. I have just a little left to do on her.

Now, you know how you start something a long while back and not perfectly happy with it. Well back when the 5th ed. DE codex came out I wanted a void raven so bad but only had a description of it and no model so I made my own. Wasn't real happy with the outcome even tho I had painted and finished it. Later I stripped it and worked the nose of over but not real satisfied. I took some plastic spoons and tried to create an upper and lower camopy, wouldnt work so put it up. Then at the beginning of this year I bought a kit for one. I assembled it up to the point the glass was all that was left...finally last night I figured it out what needed to be done. So got out the mold maker and resin and here are the fruits of my labor.

(http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll62/DeathbyDread/20161120_220244_zpszshtmhzj.jpg)

Now I can prime and repaint one of my favorite conversions I've ever done.

Small tidbit. Besides models and gaming, I'm a very active hotrod builder also. My latest is a 48 Chevy coupe. Here is one of my dash inserts...

So since painting is on a back burner for now, again, I couldn't help but get the new canoness model. I've tried thru the years to make one myself and finally, 2 years after I sold my army, they make her. So the little wheels in my head started spinning and my first add to my 5th and final AS army is this Exorcist. Not done yet, have to make dozer blade but anyhow here is the beginning.

Wow thats crazy cool Dread. Did you make those bits yourself? They look excellent!

I want a sisters army so freaking bad! If my Dark Angels get any kind of ally its gonna be Sisters.

Sorry your hands aren't letting you paint the way you want to man... I truly am sorry about that bud. Maybe you could try your hand at an airbrush approach and just picking out critical details? I've seen people have a very minimalist approach to their painting that way and have tremendous results! I know you've probably had a million offers advice, but seriously bud I'm sorry you can't hobby the way you want to. Anyway bro I hope you have a great Christmas!

Also check out GW's facebook for some insights into the Sisters... you are gonna be stoked!

Thanks Cav. All the Ivory looking pieces are resin. I made molds years ago and now I get to use them again. As for my hands, I hope to see the doc pretty soon and find out what is what,arthritis I think but hope it is due to one of my meds. I really enjoy looking at everyone's work and tho I don't get to comment on a lot of them, it gives me a smile seeing the elevation that most acheive, whether simple basic colors or the deep intense shadowing and highlights. Watching those who keep one of my favorite hobbies alive.

Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Dread on December 21, 2016, 09:17:56 PM
Thanks AP. I feel the same way. The idea of the organ is a good one but I think it just really doesn't look right on the battle field, more like it belongs in a church house. A whirlwind style looks more battle worthy in my book and the launcher from the IK just screamed it to me.

Sweet! That's going to be really cool when it's done :) not that it's not really cool now of course, I've always been more fascinated by a project car than the finished article anyway ;)

Here's what my Spit looks like at the moment: http://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/image/upload/s--DPrHBymU--/c_scale,fl_progressive,q_80,w_800/cd9nptismvxgsod0kisr.jpg (http://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/image/upload/s--DPrHBymU--/c_scale)

Completely stripped and on a home-made collapsible A-Frame :)

Being a hotrodder you might appreciate the general plan for this. 1.3l I4 out, 2.5l I6 in with a cam, porting and mechanical fuel injection. I also saw a thread somewhere where a chap welded the body of his Model A to the chassis and thought 'huh, why don't I try that', alongside welding on a steel hardtop. It's in the final stages of me boxing in the underside then the welding's done!

Back on topic, I've just taken a trip through the rest of your project thread (can't believe I hadn't done that before!) and I love your Corsairs :) Fantastic paint scheme, and the mix-and-match of CWE and DE bits is just right :)

Liking the Shadowseer floating above the ground too :)

Glad you're on the mend!

Thanks so much. Here is a small update. I'm trying to decide if I want to add to her head dress thingy then I'll get down with final paint.

Dang Dread you've been doing some work! I pity whoever you have to play because they are in for a world of pain... as should anyone who dares mess with the almighty lords of 40k my beloved Eldar! lol  ;D ;D ;D But joking aside they came out great! The fade is super nice and the spacing of the crackles is spot on.

I like the white body suits on the pilots too. I don't think I noticed that before. All around, everything looks great. I know I've mentioned it before... but I've always loved this scheme... ever since I saw it in the debut White Dwarf for Sisters of Battle (with cardboard terrain) in which the store owner where I was introduced to 40k had his Golden Demon winning models featured. Their was a Venom in this color scheme and it blew my mind! Still love it to this day.

Anyway, hope you have a great game bud. As always sending the good vibes your way... go out there and CRUSH it on the tabletop bro. Good luck and glad to see a painting update!

I would amphetamine parrot a brick if I faced that army! It looks really cool, I'm glad to see that you got round to finishing it off - it will look really striking on the battlefield.

Great work Dread.

Thanks guys.

So I had 2 600 pt games tonight. Won them both, yay! Anyhow I was so excited to play I forgot pics :P. First game was against Templar and 2nd against IG. Both were meat grinders on a 3x4 table, nothing really big happened except fun was had.

Saim-dann it's all brush and freehand. I start with a white primer then drag the red then drag the yellow forward and sack ward over the red. Then it's the takes forever black lava cracks.

Thanks all. We ate starting an aarmageddon tourney this Wednesday so, is it gonna be wyches or harlis. Help me decide

Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Dread on April 27, 2017, 01:00:51 AM
Well, that's the million dollar question. I think I'm gonna do each model different and not try to stay to a scheme. They will represent the best from each coven, like the winner from each arena put together to go forth and conquer. Sounds kinda sappy but I think that would work for the armageddon fluffwise. Will update as soon as paint begins.

Nice idea :) i like it :)

If you want to crank up the grimdark slightly just say that those champions who perform badly...aren't exactly 'welcomed' as such upon their return to Commorragh.

Sort of like the Hunger Games, but with psychotic drugged up space elves ;)

Looks sick dread! I'm loving the detailed pattern you choose. What paints do you use for your airbrush? I'm still trying to get up the nerve to break mine out, but I'm still unsure what type of paint I want to go with.
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Cavalier on June 21, 2017, 07:53:34 AM
Wow! Damn man thats great airbrush work! Super smooth and I love the blend of colors... from black to dark blue to purple to icy blue, its looking fantastic. The lightning bolts look killer too, the perfect touch! Keep it up bud love this scheme!
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Irisado on June 21, 2017, 10:50:52 AM
That's a really evocative colour scheme that you have adopted and it looks fantastic.  The way the colours flow into each other is very appropriate for the Void Raven.  Excellent work :).

Post by: Saim-Dann on June 21, 2017, 12:17:49 PM
Niiiiice!
That would not have been a quick process there, Dread. Am in awe. It would have been easy to go with the hot colours once you decided to go the flame pattern, however, choosing to go with the blue was bold and unique and it paid off. Hats off mate!
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army

that's awesome Dread, digging how you blended the scheme onto the weapons, the lightning is also a very nice touch.

Post by: Dread on June 21, 2017, 07:50:47 PM
Thanks everybody. Wasn't sure on the lightning but wanted a void type effect, I think it works. As for the paint, I'm using createx. It works great, the opaque ones. Rich color. Hope to have more up soon.

My first game was against IG and the 2nd was against Blood angels. I'm going to do a betrep, I took notes, soon. I got pics too, there is the rub. Posting from Flikr just makes it where ya'll have to click the links and I know how much of a pain that is. Bare with me.

For quick right now I won the first 9 to 3 and lost the last 7 to 3.

Post by: Ynneadwraith on August 6, 2017, 02:45:40 PM
Nice work :) glad to hear it's a bit of a streamlined way of playing.

You should be able to use flickr without having people click on the links. Might be a tad convoluted, but if you go to the bit where you normally go to download photos (little arrow in the bottom right when you select a picture if it hasn't moved). Clicking on that will bring up a drop down which says 'original size' followed by a list of other sizes. Select the size you want, and then it'll generate that size (useful for resizong bigger pics). Right click and select 'copy this image url', or just open the pic in a new tab. That web address will be one you can paste into forum code and have the pic appear :)

Looking forward to those BatReps Dread. I'm glad to see you had some success right out of the gate (but not too much, so it'll keep you hungry!).

As far as using Flikr, if you click the share arrow, then select the BB Code, you can copy and paste this into your script without issue and without a need to link back to the source. You do have to delete a lot of the code (leaving the first [i.m.g]to the next[/i.m.g]), but it isn't too arduous.
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Dread on August 6, 2017, 05:59:10 PM
Thanks for the help. I'm still looking. Haven't found a bb code yet.

Thanks grizzly but that's why I'm trying to find another share site. Photobucket has made it to where you have to pay to share. Unfortunately I can't really afford that.

On another note, I did a couple of trades yesterday. Got Voldus, Cypher and a box of jet bikes and some bits for an imperial knight. Another trade was my ravenwing for the new game box, libraian and chaplain. Played 2 games, lost both but didn't care, had lots of fun.

Still need to write out report. Took good notes so maybe tonight I can jot it down and post. Maybe figure out the pic thing.

Sorry I didn't get the bat rep done. But my excuse is I found out what was wrong with my hands. Just as I thought, it was one of my meds. Weaned myself off, no more shakes, cramps or pain. Started drawing and painting up a storm just to see. I've worked for hours each night and no problems. So I went out leased a building and am starting up my new tattoo shop. This has taken a front seat to everything else. So hopefully I get back to models and games soon. Til then I live vicariously thru ya'll for my gaming fun.

So I hope ya'll are ready for a shining spear box set, I say this because every time I do a conversion it seams GW releases the model or takes them away. Since they're in the book, shouldn't be the later.

Since the new jetbikes have a combat screen popped up from the cowl, I didn't use the original spear left arm, less conversion work.

Feels good to be working on my Eldar again, for that matter my models. My last dabble was a few months back.

Yup SD, that's why I have a hole in my left thumb now, haha. Still doesn't wanna dry.

I agree Mag. I'm getting old now and waiting has gotten harder. But now that base size don't matter, maybe I should just put them back together. I do like the leaned forward pose on mine better then the old laid back look.

Quicken + Shining Spears = First Turn Charges (even crazier with Saim-Hann) I've got 8 more Russian sculpted Shining Spear pilots, just waiting for Jetbikes. This has given me the itch! Can't wait to see how you paint them bro. Keep it up!

A friend of mine has also just done the same with a shining spear upgrade pack and the new bikes!

Really like what you're doing there, mate. The hair looks great, but the little power sheen in the middle of the staff is Micky Mouse. Was never a big fan of that era of aspects, (especially the Scorpions. Buck toothed looking, blessed, things).

The old scheme is on the right. 20 some odd years old, the scheme not the model. It was definitely time for a change I think.

Way back in 2nd ed, my army consisted of mostly banshees and reapers. I'm moving to make a list using a similar build now for posterity sake. My first Gen banshees will keep the original paint scheme but my 2nd and 3rd Gen will have the new.

Now just have to start playing again. The new shop is doing well now so now time to get life back.

Congrats, Dread!
Always glad to hear of a businessman doing well. Those particular models came out in third ed. We can tell the designers have just come from working on the Dark Eldar. This was the first appearance for the DE and the Banshees were the next in line, and I think it shows in their form.

I like the left breastplate being metal. Can't remember if they were designed that way or this is your creation. Looking great, mate... Be well!

Ooh yeah that Banshee is mint! No word of a lie, that is the first mini I've seen that has made me even slightly reconsider changing up my generally muted painting style for a more colourful one. The bright bone colour, fiery orange hair and offset steely plating is a hell of a colour scheme :)

Damn Dread, that Exarch looks freaking boss! You absolutely crushed the shading and highlighting on that bone... and the hair and gems look so striking and vibrant. Just fantastic paint job on a classic mini. Awesome stuff bud, can't wait to see the rest of the girls come along. Keep rolling!

Hey Dread, sorry I didn't post earlier...I totally missed all of the new photos that you'd posted!

That Banshee Exarch is brilliant. I like it a lot more than the old colour scheme. Your execution of the scheme is totally on point as well. The shading of the bone plates is amazing and I simply love the counterpoint of the cold blade.

Keep rocking it man...also, I'm really pleased to hear that the business is taking off. Great stuff!

Sorry this is not a pic post but that is coming. I finally got the triumvirate box! Yes, today, so all other projects are being pushed aside, not that I have many going right now. I have a ton of conversion work to do on the big guy ( don't like the horns) and assembly. The others will get done normal except might change visarch sword. Bases will be worked over but the big one is getting worked over big time. Updates to follow.

Post by: Dread on June 3, 2018, 01:30:53 AM
Finally I got some time to work on models tonight. Nothing really amazing yet. I was trying to put my Great Harli Quin together in sections to make her easier to paint but somehow I got glue in the wrong place, so I just glued her all together. Down side, harder to paint. Up side, will be able to fill gaps before painting. I'll get gaps done shortly and hopefully prime tomorrow night.

I also did some touch ups on my converted shadowseer and started painting on another shadowseer. Also, for my birthday, a friend 3D printed me my Necrons objective markers, painted one tonight. Tried out a new paint I got called green glow, going to have figure that out better.

Hopefully soon I will get a game or 2 in, maybe Monday night.

Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: dog_of_war on June 15, 2018, 07:49:20 AM
That's a really unique design. I've never seen that one before. If you're up to trying a technical paint, I really like adding lahmian media as a top coat when I have really distinct lines of colour separation. It seems to smooth out the transition and hides any of the errant brush lines. Not a criticism of the paint job, which is gorgeous. Just if you wanted to try something. If you don't mind a gloss look, adding another layer with ard coat blends even better. That's what I did with my acid bases for my dark eldar to make it look more flowing.

Awesome look as is though. Just a thought if you wanted to experiment, but as that design probably took you a long time, you may not want to monkey with it.

That Cegorach (!) is wonderful, Dread! I think you really nailed it with the masks and the color scheme, pretty resourceful of you to find a suitable replacement for the Yncarne head. Lots of wonderful and colorful patterns that absolutely scream the Laughing God and his Harlequins. You should be proud of this one! ;D

Thanks guy's! The basics on these are flat black with gloss graphics. Black will be the basic on all foot dudes too. Not to many diamonds on ground troops just basic bright colors. The ones now are purple and green, some others may be grey and red or blue and ah I dunno. But here is the start.

Great job, Dread, the Craven King looks so much cooler when you get some close-ups to him, though he already seemed pretty great before. Cannot wait to see how paint him :). Nighthaunt will likely be my second army, that or Stormcasts, haven't really decided which one yet.

Post by: Killersquid on August 10, 2018, 08:18:53 AM
Looking good! I do think you should paint some of the details on the models, as with just the green/white they lack a certain amount of pop. Especially on the named heros, where you really want them to stand out.
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Dread on August 10, 2018, 09:06:13 PM
Try this. I added some titanium gold to some. It keeps the ethereal look. I used athonian camoshade over some areas to bring out details.

Much much better.

With just the white and green, they just don't look finished to me. Fantastic base for the ethereal effect, but you need spot colours and details on the models. If you could work in some dark reds onto the models, I think it'd really pop too.

I particularly love the light shade of pink you used for the roses, that looks wonderful on Lady Olynder.

Firstly..... Great job on the airbrushing, it looks really good! I'd probably add in a tiny little bit of drybrushing to bring out the edges and it'll look really ethereal!

Secondly.... Major Kudos for attempting that model, as much as it looks amazing I don't think I'd have the guts to use it as it looks so damn fiddly! I'd definitely end up breaking it!

First off, thanks. The model is well designed, not wobbly. Now if you're gonna do a bunch of detail work, then test fit and paint before assembly. Since I'm going the easy way out, there's not a lot of detail, old dogs just go for ease.

Wow Dread, those Gellar Pox are absolutely spectacular 8)!!! There's so many subtle varieties in the fleshy bits (which are kind of the whole models), and they blend together into each other so seamlessly. About as natural as disease-ridden, cybernetic hulks of stitched together flesh blessed by the God of Decay should look, I think ;D.

Seriously, that's impressive :). Are you going to be painting the Starstriders, because I would love to see that!

Looking forward to seeing some paint on that Gobbapalooza ;D.

I painted this for a friend for Christmas.

Whoa Dread that is awesome stuff. Donít know what you have done with the cloak, but I really like the way it looks. One thing though a bit of yellow from one of the 'bulbs' has got onto the tubing behind it and this could do with cleaning up.
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Dread on February 3, 2019, 12:18:56 PM
Thanks Alienscar, nice catch too. I'll have to amend that or its a glint of yellow light refraction off the tube, ya,that's it, right...we'll go with that.

Excellent Cawl, Dread, I really love what you've done with it! If I had one criticism that I had to nit-pick about -and this might be a product of the camera itself or maybe I'm blind- I cannot really make out the details on Cawl's face. But other than that, I think the model is gorgeous!

Keep us updated!
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Dread on February 5, 2019, 09:36:52 PM
Thanks everyone. The camera was not great but the face is done in layered greys, kinda dark. My friend bought my skitarii army from me a year ago. Kept Cawl to paint and give him for Christmas,  he was so proud, he got me the kill team core book, I'm so happy to have it finally. So many things I've discovered about the game having it in hand. Anyhow, I painted him in the colors I had started doing my skitarii so he fits perfect and my buddy wants to pay me to finish the army so, I may be getting busy soon.

As for the base, cork is do fun to use. You can shape it, break it and paint it to look so perfect.

Dude that's awesome! Love the whole pallette of bronzes and ruddy cloth with luminous yellow highlights.

The cloth is particularly nice :) how did you do it?
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Dread on February 7, 2019, 11:13:06 PM
Hey Ynneadwraith, thanks. I start with a black primer then coat it with doom bull brown. I use Ryza rust (dry) over all the raised detail then use Hexos Palesun around the bottom edges fading it up. The use Agrath earth shade wash in the nooks and crannies. After I finish all metals and colors I spray a matte finish over the model.

Here is another view..

UPDATE............. ...........

So, you know the feeling when you buy that fresh shiny new army. You get all excited, go home assemble them and go through your head on what color. You do some tests buy never figure out what you want. Well I have a huge Drukhari army I got when all the new models came out years ago. I've test painted a few, even painted a few flyers but never found the right fit.....until today. Went into my local game store, the owner is one of my best friends. He says I got something new to show you. He got in a new paint line. My jaw hit the floor, COLOR CHANGING PAINT!! I FOUND IT! That perfect color, it changes from green to purple. I just started priming the models and hopefully here in a bit I'm gonna thin some out and spray a base. I hope it works the way it says and if it does, ya baby! Will post pics of progress. So cross your fingers and wish me luck.

Sorry for the wall of text.

The pictures don't do it justice, the color change is awesome. I got a bunch of transports based also. I haven't been this ambitious in a good while except for my Gellarpox. Here's the best pic I got.

Post by: Myen'Tal on February 11, 2019, 08:43:37 PM
I wish I could see these colors at their most opaque, then observe the shift in the color. Looks great, Dread. Really complements the scheme too. I would like to see some of the panels and other details picked out with more colors, but the end result is great!
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Dread on February 11, 2019, 09:45:59 PM
Thanks. That's just the base coat. Lots of detail to go. Will be slow going but at least I'm finally painting them.

Think I'm going to do greys for the sails, wych outfits cloth and the like. Tried silver for chains but not enough contrast so going golds copper tones.

Thanks guys. I've been feverishly painting away. Finally decided on reds for sails and cloth stuff. I did one with bright green sails, just too, well, bright. Will post pics soon. I took them to play today but unfortunately ran out of time for 40k, playing in a kill team campaign so my Gellerpox got a workout. Back to painting.

Wow! That's quite the Raiding party you have Dread!

It's tough to see in the photos, but I imagine that the green/purple shimmer that you have going on is just superb and so fitting for Dark Eldar.

It kinda makes me want to break out some Drukhari and try something similar.

Terrific work Dread, well done!

Those are some sick flyers, Dread, I love the one with the nebulae-esque scheme, looks absolutely beautiful. The Razorwings with the color shifting paint seem more uniform in their schemes and don't stand out too much in the images, but I bet they must look sweet in person. I've seen a tutorial using color shifting paints on an Akhelian King, and he looked absolutely incredible.

Hey Dread, quick question for you, since I know you're doing Daughters of Khaine. How are you planning on painting your Witch Aelves. Are you painting them fully assembled or do you plan to leave the head and hair off as sub-assemblies. Trying to figure out which one I want to do, but sub assemblies seems fairly more complicated since specific heads go with specific bodies and aren't really interchangeable across the entire kit.
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Dread on March 3, 2019, 11:25:43 PM
I completely assemble them especially since the neck to chin is so tiny. When painting them, the areas you can't see don't need paint anyway. Just is easier. I tried to do Helebrons head/hair unattached years ago but trying to put it on the neck was almost impossible, ended up with a big glue blob that I had to trim and then had to repaint. Hope this helps you.

Been slowly working on the grots...

*******A L E R T*******

(Sounds of explosions and people screaming in the background )

We now interrupt your program with this special report.

Good evening folks! It all started a few hours ago with a bright, what seems to be a portal, opening in the middle of town. People gathered together to see this phenomenon only to be attacked by what looks like chaotic creatures emerging from it. It's happening so fast and the authorities are dispatching troops to try and contain the situation. We will report on this as we learn more. Now back to your regularly scheduled program.....

********A L E R T*********

Have you been suffering from additional limbs, eyes or other heads appearing on your body? Well you don't have to anymore. Buy Father O'Brian's exorcism in a can. It comes in 3 different flavors. With just one can you'll see difference in your skin. Remember to not listen to the voices telling you not too and get yours today. For best results, drink 3 to 4 cans a day until it's gone and be happy to show yourself to your friends and family again. If you act now for 250 credits you get 12 cans we'll throw in this cute widget doll and another can of Father O'Brian's Stay Cleansed.

No animals were spared in testing of this product. It needs to work. If you don't like how it works, just send the unused cans back for absolutely no refund.
Act fast, supplies are limited.

***BREAKING NEWS***
THIS IS THE FIRST PICTURE OF THE FEW CHAOTIC FORCES ADVANCING in our city. May the Emporer protect!

So we played a 2 on 2 last week. My black legion and bugs vs death guard and orks. Each 750 pts doing a objective based game. They got 17 pts to our 13 but fun was had and I got to use the new stuff. Any how I got home that night and decided I want a dark apostle. With no money to use I remembered a model I got in a white dwarf mag a while back and converted him. So introducing my new dark apostle. Que music....

Post by: Irisado on April 5, 2019, 07:12:38 AM
That's a fantastic conversion.  I particularly like the way that you have posed the model to be pointing menacingly towards his target with that maul.

As for naming, as Dark Apostles were, at least originally, exclusive to the Word Bearers, I'm not sure that I'd make his name favour any particularly Chaos God.  [Insert name] Chosen of Lorgar might work, but it's rather unoriginal.  How about some alliteration?  Drazhar, Demagogue of Darkness might work, for example.
Title: Re: Dread's Corsair army
Post by: Myen'Tal on April 5, 2019, 09:01:22 PM
I've always liked the Slaughter Priest model, and I think he'd make a natural Dark Apostle with some work. I think you've done that conversion work some great justice. He's even got the mace!

Got nothing for names :P.

Thanks. Started with 2 layers of cork, tearing out sections to look like ruts carved out by wheels in wet ground. Based in doom bull brown, then dry brushed some lighter browns. I use model train ballast glued in open areas to look like dirt/gravel. Been doing this for years. I'm still thinking about adding some grass around the tomb stones.

Really cool looking centre piece model you have there Dread. The ethereal look has been executed brilliantly. I think that the base is also terrific.

If it were me, I'd probably have done the coach in regular colours, as opposed to ethereal, so that the characters were the ghosts that happened to be pulling a corporeal coach. That's just me though and you choices don't detract from what is an excellent model.

Great stuff Dread! Good to see you painting your own stuff!

Thanks guys. Yup Loosh, I've been fighting with that since I got the base coat on it. When I started the base the other night and the metallic trim, I kept dropping my brush. That sucked so I just did the base, afraid I'd mess it up. Still a possibility in the future.  Thanks for everyone's feed back.

I might not get to paint my models all the time but being a taxidermist now, I get some interesting jobs in. Did this for a customer tonight.

I think I'm going to just go black boots and cloth with metal armor bits and red hair. Highlight the black of coarse and go with a regular flesh tone instead of such a pale one. Dunno yet, waiting for inspiration. I'm working on some drawings right now so painting is sidelined for a bit. Thanks for coming by here everyone.
