What are you working on today?

Hi All,

Thought I'd post a wip shot of what's on my painting tray at the moment, while the bases are drying...

What are you working on at the moment?

Cheers,
Spiky

Strong Skeletor vibe from that Chaos Sorceror - intentional? :)

Liking the grey blue skin and the Gargoyle is sharp in his classic tones.

Myself? Presently putting together a couple characterful minion pieces; this one is the Orc Prisoner/Grunt figure :

Kev Adams is the sculptor, his early Orc models match HQ figure design. He also did work for Heartbreaker miniatures, which includes some great heavily armored Orcs with an HQ vibe.

Damn, that's a great gargoyle Spiky! I doubt I could ever paint like that.
Here's what I'm working on these days, it's a warhammer quest Pit Fighter figure, that's been modded (not by me).
The figure was cut in half and the upper half was kept and a new bottom half was attached.
Anyway, I thought I'd paint it and sell it on ebay for some dollars (not done yet).

Nice leg swap, the original was a bit dire and clunky. Using the Chaos Marauder legs from GW like that is some smart work.

Certain you'll get some coin for this project Tasoe :)

Thanks! I didn't do the swap myself, so I had no idea where the new legs came from.
In fact, since you "got it", maybe you can identify this guy for me. Not that it will do much difference as he'll also turn up on ebay, but I'm curious.
Image
Bottom half looks like a chaos warrior. Not sure though if he is also half and half. The arms are surely substitutes, and as he was quite butchered, I added some fur with greenstuff to match his own fur (you can see it right beside his beard) and a handle for the sword.
I'd be very interested in seeing the original figure if anyone can identify it.

Hah, nice work again this. The arms are Chaos Marauder (GW) again, not the horsemen, the infantry versions.

The Lower half, are from the Chaos Chariot set, the pose and wide stance was give away; example : Chaos Charioteer

The upper?.. tempted to think it is a Beorg Dogs of War regiment, but it definitely has a Chaos Warrior (pre-plastics) regiment vibe about it. I'd have to look around. :)



Some seriously old school hack and stick going on here.

Yep. I always saw him this way so couldn't resist it! That's a cool orc, although he doesn't appear to be too impressed to be put on a heroquest base...

Tasoe, I like the put fighter a lot! :)

Well he is intended to be either a grunt or a prisoner for HQ scenarios. Either way, life's tough on this Orc :bites-lip:

Finished him just now actually (back from work)

Well... My miniature hobby centers much around Space Crusade at the time, so I give you:
Image
MAGNETIZED SPACE MARINES!!! On cool detailed resin bases! Wooo!

Image
Genestealer Hybrids with heavy weapons!

Image
And a tyranid warrior!

The magnets might seem a little excessive since the minis are already designed to swap weapons. But I've already snapped the little rod on one of the weapons while swapping, and I wasn't even violent!
And since I plan to paint them anyway, easy snap magnets will wear less on the varnish than eager fingers struggling to remove the fat hard rod from the tight holes! what?

For those who don't recognize the hybrids and tyranids from the game, it's from one of the White Dwarf expansions. I actually bought a full set of semi-rare classic tyranids on eBay.

That Tyranid takes me back a few years! I might also need to start looking for a copy of Space Crusade on ebay...

Question - where did you get the resin bases from? I assume they're not from the original set?

I'm currently jumping between projects, but last night I nearly finished one of my Chaos Warriors - hopefully I can continue to get all the rest done over the next couple of weeks... I also have a conversion idea for a Chaos Champion which I might look into soon too!
