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?

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.

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?

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.
