Good solid start though. Also now know you're my dopelganger. All sorts of building but not much paint slinging. I'm about to get the chaos portion of the Shadowspear  box, ya! Keep at it, check on you soon.

Sweet, I'm also really tempted to make Chaos my first 40k army. But I'm already snowed under with stuff to paint at the moment... so I need to get to work on that first ;).

Assembly Update #3:

Also, here is some progress that I'm making so far:

I have got to say that I enjoy looking at your assembly progress. Putting the models together is a large part of the hobby and not something we see a lot of. For me there is a certain appeal to the way an assembled model looks and sometimes I think a bare plastic model can look better than when it has been painted.

After all no one ever looked at Michelangelo's David, or Rodin's The Thinker and said that they would look better with a coat of paint and a highlight.

Thanks, Alienscar, I love seeing minis without any paint on them too! You get to see all of the craftsmanship created by the artists and designers who made these, before you make the mini your own with some paint. And you're correct, some of my minis would probably look better without paint! ;).

Also, I have a surprise coming tomorrow! No, it's not anything painted :-[ ;).

Indeed! After a couple of games with the Deepkin, I think I've hoped on the All Akhelian Corps lists that are popular right now. Haven't given up on the Namarti, think I'll use them in a Namarti Corps list that I'll build in the future.

Just need one more Akhelian King!

I probably won't touch these newer models until I get the airbrush up and running. But I've got some ideas on how best to tackle them :)! I'll just keep building for now.

Oh boy! Gonna be great, look just like mine as of now. We both need to paint but when we do and set them by each other, it will be greatness for sure.

No doubt, Dread, it will be glorious! I'm curious how you plan to do your bases? I'm thinking about trying to make a lava base via a Warhammer TV Tutorial. It will definitely work for the Witch Aelves and Khinerai, as they are already above ground. Not sure how it'll work for the Cauldron or the Melusai though... might look like they're sinking in some cataclysm rather than fighting lol!

I'm also thinking that I might do lava bases for... a Scourged Renegade Chapter of Chaos Space Marines :o! Might go ahead and trade off my Stormcast, the Ironjawz that I bought years ago, and the two limited edition Nighthaunt models. I think I only need two AoS armies until Slaves to Darkness come out sometime!

The models look great, your getting the pro-warhammer "to paint" queue :)


Indeed! I've got some friends who are liking AoS, so I'll probably trade my Stormcast off to them! Really want to focus on the Aelves in AoS for the moment, so we'll see!

Sweet minis Myen’Tal!  :)

I’m loving how much AoS is on the go in the projects blog.  Great to see how fantasy is sharing the platform with 40k.  ;D

The models are looking good again Myen'Tal. I like the look of Volturnos and the Bloodwrack. I am not sure about the giant turtle, so can't wait to see your assembled model.

Cool stuff Myen’Tal. I think I need to hire you to build my kits...it always takes 3 times as long to build as I think it will. Drives me nuts.

Now get painting. Looshkin craves paint! Paint for the Paint God.*


*Please note, I’m not calling myself a paint God. A God of Paint would have a far cooler name than me...like Dun’Khan Rhod Es or some amphetamine parrot. Maybe just Khav El’ieer.

Thanks, guys,

As an update, I guess I'm working on trading my stormcast in. I'm trying to downsize down to Daughters of Khaine and Idoneth Deepkin, for Age of Sigmar. My idea is to have two AoS armies this year, which I already have, and expand into Warhammer 40k by the end of the year.

Chaos Space Marines and Sisters of Battle are on my to-collect-list.

Not sure when I'll actually get around to it, but I'm drawing up plans. I'm thinking I want to do a Renegades Force from the new Vigilus book, the Red Corsairs or the Scourged look like some really cool, thematic forces that I have some ideas on for paint schemes. I'm looking to get a hold of the rules, so I can start crafting some armies.

War Turtle!

EDIT: Cauldron of Blood!

I decided against assembling the crew and most of the accessories such as the weapon caches and banner. Anyone have any advice on building - painting the crew and then attaching it to the model?

Chris Peach has a done a Painting Guide for the Leviadon and he suggests painting/assembling the turtle, howdah and crew separately. At the end of the video he just says to assemble them all together with super glue, but doesn't show how this is done.

Thanks for the heads up, Alienscar! Using superglue did occur to me, but I wasn't certain about doing it. Perhaps I'll give it a shot!

I do this for any model that has parts that will get in the way. Super glue can clump so be careful with how much you use if you want to try it. Plastic glues can still work, just depends on how think the paint is. Another option is to carfullly scratch/sand off the undercoat where the parts will join, so its still plastic on plastic.

I would also add that you don't want to glue the platform on, painting under it would be a right pain, especally if your dry brushing the shell.



nice Avatar of Khaine, that model is in on my "one day" list :)

Thanks for the advice, Mage, I'll put it to good use. I removed the Howdah for the most part and will keep it that way until it is painted. I'm still trying to figure out how I want to paint it. I'm thinking on a "Void Turtle" where the shell of the Leviadon is painted jet black and highlighted with brighter blues (Like the Mor'Phann Enclave). Not sure what I'll do for the skin though.

Ideas, ideas ;D!

Blue and green still works, but its all the additional stuff like the platform that was the headache for me as in the sheer phsyical size of each of the parts.

That Leviadon looks awesome...it's huge!

One thing though...maybe you should rename this thread the Building Chronicles...not much painting going on here  :o
