WIP: Female Eldar Farseer of Iybraesil #2

So, in the last post, as well as on Facebook, I raised the question whether to remove the shoulder guards of my female Farseer conversion or not. I got a lot of different replies, but in the end I decided to keep them, mainly because I didn't want to screw up the model. Removing the shoulder guards would have meant that I'd had to resculpt the whole shoulder area.

Now I started painting her and so far I managed to complete her robes, the cape, the shoulder guards and the brassy ornaments. I decided to paint the cape in a different colour, to create a visual seperation between what I consider to be an slim turquoise dress, and a wider dark blue cape. I think it makes her appear slimmer than if I had painted all the clothes turquoise.

How do you like the progress so far?

Showcase: (Another) Night Goblin Boss on "Flying Carpet"

That's right, I now have two Boss models I can play with the Arabyan Carpet. Faithful followers of ToP will remember the first one but I must confess that I love this guy so much more.

Showcase: Necron Immortals

This is a super quick one as I'm furiously trying to finish a Be'lakor model before the new Nagash arrives on the weekend. I painted these Necron Immortals in the space of half a day whilst watching a marathon of Malcolm in the middle. For painting models this is pretty quick for me and I'm pleased with the outcome. I initially bought these models early in the summer with the intention of building a Necron army and then changed my mind and decided to stick with a Plague Marine army that I own. What do you think? Are you excited about the new Nagash model?

Showcase: World Eaters by Uruk's Customs #1

Hello, my name is Konrad, also known as Uruk's Customs, and I'm gonna guest post on Tale of Painters for a while. I’m In the hobby for about 11 years, more or less since Games Workshop introduced The Lord of the Rings wargame. My beginnings were really sloppy, like most painters I guess – I still have some pictures with my horrible, just horrible Moria Goblins I like to look at to remind me where I came from. Anyway, after LOTR I decided to move over to 40k, inspired by a few friends who shared the fascination of its setting. My army of choice was without much thought Chaos Space Marines - bloodthirsty legion of the Blood God, World Eaters.
