WargamerAU Forums _ Modelling Diaries _ [40k] World Eaters modelling project

Posted by: Magnus Apr 20 2007, 02:04 PM

I'm starting to get the 40k urge after painting about 4 confrontation armies (see 2 of them http://www.metalforge.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?t=781 and http://www.metalforge.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?t=597)

This army is primarily a modelling project that I have always wanted to do. Basically its and undivided army with all the cults included. so EC, WE, PM and not to forget TS.

so first some Khorne terminators. Using the article in WD so had to make and use lots of green stuff. I;m getting better at making molds.

IPB ImageIPB ImageIPB Image

after the base coat IPB Image

and icon bearer IPB Image

a bloodletter (test model to check colors), only 7 more to do

IPB Image

My commander on a steed , large 50mm base and lots of green stuff moulding on legs

IPB Image

based coated IPB Image

with hq, changed head from khorne to the double mutated head from chaos sprue.

IPB Image

will try and post some more soon.

Don't just luv epicast bases. I can mould my own but sometimes I can't be bothered.

Speed Adict, thanks mate. I've always wanted to collect all three cults (I have EC's and TS's). Used the guidelines in wd. I will get some actaully finished soon. The colors i'm on the HQ are just me having somefun. Will be all blood red as they should be.

I was mucking about with my LR as well, will be all blood red once finished.

Damn, I was hoping to see the army as a full split colour army. Oh well, it is looking great so far.

Posted by: Baphomet Apr 24 2007, 06:58 PM

Yer i'm lovin the half half colour sceam you do that up properly would look wicked for your Zeentch/khorne army.

Though don't like the axe on your Lord (never liked that axe) maybe try to convert a different weap on there?

Might look a bit dicky if you do them 4 different colours (eg one for each god) and all red makes me think of khorne. (eg for your undivied troops could look sh*t though could look good?).


The blood letter, don't realy think the grey suit's him, maybe do the horns different and the handle of the axe would change it up?

My bloodletters i did them black etc (I have a mix of old and new), but there hair i did like fire and added flames on there back and base, looks fairly cool armata_PDT_36.gif , maybe that would break up the min better?

can't wait to see what you come up with, lookin great so far armata_PDT_37.gif

Posted by: Magnus Apr 25 2007, 02:31 PM

Yeah, sort of thinking of taking pure WE instead of mix. BL i have seen black ones and just wanted to use gray with flaming hair and blood red single shoulder pad.

I might still try a split paint scheme as a painting project.

Posted by: Speed Adict Apr 25 2007, 04:29 PM

Do you have any more skulls for the Land Raider? Reason I ask is I looked at it, and the first thing I saw was a really big "H", then looked closer and realised they were skulls smile.gif

Posted by: Jadetiger Apr 25 2007, 05:13 PM

Nice! I love the Green stuff work (something I will have to get used to for my Death Guard project!)

Very Khornate, keep it coming!

H, funny as I didn't see that until you pointed it ok biggrin.gif , Sort of wanted to leave some original LR, but easy enough to green stuff some more on. Maybe need to blend in the side a bit more and cover the lascannon sponsons. Original idea was that the skulls were thrown on top.

Thanks for the encouraging comments.

Posted by: Khorne Freak Apr 25 2007, 07:44 PM

Awesome loving the split colour scheme as well as the amount of skulls very chaos like...

The Bloodletter is awesome also

Keep it up mate looking forward to seeing more

Are the forge world one any good?

Juggernaut of Khornes head. I know because I used it on my old dreadnought... before it was taken from me by a huge tome of Modern History sad.gif ...

Posted by: Magnus Apr 28 2007, 12:27 PM

Hey thanks for the pics Jason. I like the 3rd one.

Actually have decided to make a defiler.

Have a look, using forge world icon as body and for green stuff molds on legs etc. Won't be massive (aka Jasons TS defiler). Will be a true 'machine of Khorne' as described in Liber Chaotica Vol 1. Lots of spike etc and lots of skulls.......

WIP,

IPB Image IPB Image

I found out how to use the wee sanding thingy that came with my dremmel. WOW they chew thru resin like nothing. Must admit it was bloody dusty though. Use it to bore out the hole for the battle cannon.

Posted by: Plaguelord Baldric Apr 28 2007, 05:14 PM

That looks awesome. armata_PDT_34.gif Keep up the good work.

Posted by: Dark Soul Apr 28 2007, 05:23 PM

Wow... thats looking really cool..
I assume all its armour plates will be like that? That'll look the shizz nizz when its painted

Posted by: Magnus May 5 2007, 06:30 AM

Mounted on 4 legs to have a look. Feels like it need something else (apart from loads of spikes...).
any suggestions? I stuck a 'face' on the engine mount. Looks ok but might have to do the whole thing. Had the idea of leaving legs and engine black and the rest will be blood red. I could do engine blood red as well?

IPB ImageIPB Image

Posted by: Plaguelord Baldric May 5 2007, 10:10 AM

The autocannons look a little small for it, maybe cut the barrels off and use the autocannon barrels off the one that came with the defiler. I also think that when the front legs are on they will add alot to it.

Posted by: Khysanth May 5 2007, 11:03 AM

I don't know Magnus, the body now looks too blocky and too big I think...

Maybe it would look better with the front arms, but I can't help feeling maybe you went a bit too far on him...

Posted by: mjb May 5 2007, 12:38 PM

I sort of like it, but there's a kind of "evil Thomas the Tank Engine" thing to it rather than a daemon engine.

Michael

Posted by: Dark Soul May 5 2007, 01:01 PM

Lol @ the evil Thomas the tank engine.

I think if you position the front legs just right, it should make it look less blocky.
And The autocannons definately need to be bigger.
Other then that, it looks quite cool!

biggrin.gif Thomas, yeah that what it reminded me off...Its suppose to be a 'War machine of Khorne'. armata_PDT_04.gif
Will have to fix that. Might just remove the face and make a extra wide battle cannon like this
IPB Image

That might help with the boxy look.

I don't want to have to buy any parts so will have to mutate the autocannon and make em bigger. Should give a bit of width as well.

Thanks for the feedback.

Posted by: Assaultguardsman May 5 2007, 02:43 PM

I actually really like the boxy look, it has a HR Geiger feel to it, something truly closer to demon than anything in the normal universe.
I strongly suggest you don't change it, as when painted (in Khornate Red I assume) it will look absolutely dominating.

I was just going to remove the face and make a bigger battle cannon. A bit like a telescope.

IPB Image

will blend into turret and make it look Khorne ish

Posted by: fet May 5 2007, 07:34 PM

I reckon that looks awesome, Bruce; it reminds me of the spider demons in Doom II. I think the massive bulk on top is very khornate, it certainly matches the artwork of Khorne's daemon-engines.

I'd be inclined to give it two more normal legs rather than the claws to make it look like it scuttles about the battlefield unleashing battle cannon pain, but that's probably just me.

Posted by: Dark Soul May 6 2007, 12:31 PM

The killer telescope looks awesome armata_PDT_34.gif

sorry to de rail the thread a bit, but does anyone else think the 5th dready posted by wolverine looked like it was converted with a doornob, just looked a tad strange armata_PDT_14.gif
Anywho, love the corn guys, agree that a split colour army woldve looked da shizz, but meh beggars cant be chosen......(very very very stupid joke, sorry cant function at.. any time armata_PDT_11.gif )

Posted by: Magnus May 20 2007, 06:21 PM

Undercoated the 'engine of Khorne'. Colors a bit off. Needed to use tungsten setting...

Will be blood red, bronze and grey (NMM).

added more mutations around front and legs near smoke launcher.

Thought i'd better get a new 40K army up an running just in case CTA confrontation does not happen. (I'm thinking of bring up my cynwall elves up or maybe my undead for confro) I've still heaps of 40K to paint so I'd better get the dippping technique sussed out pronto wink.gif

Thanks for the encouragment to get it finished.

Posted by: Magnus Nov 1 2007, 04:19 PM

Well its been a long time but with the new Chaos codex i have decided to finish my World Eater army (originally titled as undivided).

Few changes to list thou,

1 D Prince with MoK and wings

8 Terminators with AC, MoK, 2 pf, 1 Cf, 1 HF

8 Berzerkers with AC, PF and rhino

8 Berzerkers with AC, PW and rhino

10 Troops with MoK, lascannon and rhinp

4 Bikes with MoK and 2 Melta's

1 Defiler

8 Havocs with MoK, 3 plasma, 1 melta and Rhino

I've a few points left out of 1850 for something ... Comes to troops 39 % and 54 models so its ok.

Modelling progress , started rhino, green stuffed WE side door and other. Modelled up some havocs with PG's.
Also really looking forward to making up a DP with same features as Defiler etc.


Just to prove to all the skeptics that I have started painting my 40K again

Havocs

and start of rhino

Wow! Nice army! I love the skulls, but I'm glad you finally came out of the closet (Khloset?) as a Khorne only army - as I was reading I was thinking "undivided my foot!"

Just thinking about it - that's pretty evil giving a CSM squad the mark of khorne - 3 attacks from bolter boys? Not bad!

I like the massive termy squad, should be an absolute ROCK. I remember an ole WD (circa 99) when a 9 strong unit of termies when ape in a bat rep, nothing could touch them.

I brought some 2007 CSM today. Nice extra sprue thou the HB is a bit boring. Would be nice to have a Auto cannon or Lascannon. I think I have an old one lying around some where.

No Gumbi, only made 20 or so. I made a green stuff mold and used it. Works out cheaper than brought bases. Also you can use mold for every thing. I molded my forge world rhino doors times 3 for my rhinos and defiler. I'm thinking of getting some 'brown' stuff, ( Brown/Aluminum epoxy putty ) as it hold small detail better. I'm just trying to source it cheaply.

bases and some molds
IPB ImageIPB Image

Posted by: Magnus Nov 14 2007, 07:26 AM

Some rhinos , one for my berzerkers with possession and other for havocs. One thing I learning is that red is a real pain to paint with. Its a bit late now biggrin.gif . I'm happy with progress of base coating so far. I'm actually running out of paint and need to order some more as LGS is all out....

IPB ImageIPB Image

I needed some motivation so in between painting my troops I have been base coating my defiler.

IPB Image

I waiting for some stuff from forgeworld for my next rhino for the other unit of berzerkers and I'll show you soon as.


Posted by: Magnus Nov 25 2007, 06:50 AM

Well I said i should be base coating my troops. Have done some terminators, washed and based to see what they will look like. need to detail and then add some blood etc.
They all have molded world eater shoulder pads, plus other Khorne symbols. I waiting for some brass etching from FW to add some more symbols. Hard to mold the small ones without losing detail.

IPB Image


Here are some chosen, Need to add lots of khorne stuff, maybe a khorne tatoo to each head would be good.

IPB Image

Next I need to base coat my 10 man squad and 8 man squad of raptors.

Posted by: Magnus Dec 1 2007, 06:51 AM

Well my DP turned up. Nice model but It wasn't what I wanted so out with the dremmel and hacksaw. Changed arm that had the hand thingy and add a wing. Wanted it to be slashing out from its body so slight mod to arm fixed that. Changed pose by twisting 45 degrees and making more upright. Also reposition neck by cutting and twisting. Changed horn to a more demon type position (I think so!). Customised World eater shoulder pad. I will be adding khorne icons but they haven't turned up yet from forge world.

Overall I think its a nice HQ that fits with the armies close combat , frenetic theme.

IPB ImageIPB Image

Hey but I'm supposed to be painting my troops ....

Posted by: Plaguelord Baldric Dec 2 2007, 04:54 PM

Nice work on the painting so far. Is that termi in the front row, second from the left, finished, or at least, close to being finished? It looks great. armata_PDT_34.gif

Can't really make out the detail on the DP shoulder pad, so I can't comment on that, but the pose looks alright.

Posted by: Magnus Dec 12 2007, 12:53 PM

Demon prince has had some khorne brass etching applied. These are really good and I would recommend them to add the little bit extra.

IPB ImageIPB Image

Its quite hard to bend brass around shoulder pad but I will fare up with some GS. Next job is painting....

Posted by: Kruger Dec 16 2007, 06:59 AM

That looks quite good Bruce, The Brass Etch is really nice stuff.

Love the way the Prince is turning out, would be good to see him painted.

Do FW do a Nurgle sheet yet?, if so I might just have to get me some.

Cheers

It's been a long time, but I have 'finished' some stuff.

IPB Image

Painting in red and NMM has been a challenge. Red is a ##$### to paint, shade and highlight.

To get the vibrant red I undercoated with white. Yes white. Yes it took forever to completely cover each and every model in red but as this was primarily a painting project it was worth it. I'm pleased with the armies overall look. The defiler needs more work but its getting close to being finished.

I will post some units next and a final pic of the entire army.

Thoughts, well its quite different to my original army. No bloodletters, no flesh hounds, no bikes, no HQ on a steed. I suppose it a reflection of a new codex happening half way through the build. I would like to make a true World Eaters army but without rules for cult terminators and demons its not quite as I would have liked.

Next army, Nurgle....

Thanks everyone else for the good vibes.

Bruce

Posted by: Dark Soul Mar 20 2008, 09:59 AM

Have to agree with some of the previous posts, The red and bone came out great! And I think your nmm has made a rather good contrast!

Posted by: Magnus Mar 28 2008, 03:04 PM

An army is never finished.

Some small changes to make more khornate in theme.

Drop a unit of troops and add in a unit of berserkers.
Drop a rhino and use the LR to move the new unit of berzerkers.
Add 2 CC arms onto the dreadnought, will make more khornate.

So that should help. I'd really like some lessor demons but will have to wait and see what happens..
