PostSubject: The Blood Pact(very pic heavy!)   Sat 28 Feb 2009 - 3:31

Hello! long time no post Wink

What have i been doing? i have been slowly working on a 40K army and am still working on it, so i thought i would start a log over here too Smile

Well then whats this blood pact? well they are a renegade guard army from the Gaunt's Ghost novels written by Dan Abnett and if you havent read them then have a little nosy over HERE to know all about them.

Afew things to start off what do i want from this? a 40K army around 1500-2000 point range, mainly aiming for 1850 seeing thats the normal points my club plays Smile
Where else am i getting inspiration from apart form the GG books? theres a few blogs around like ones from CMDante , Col.Gravis and Dave Taylor .

Enough talk eh? on to what your really want the pictures Very Happy

this was my first/test model, was happy how the grotesque came out seeing as i wasn't too sure about my sculpting skills.



The i moved on to some random troops and HQ models











And here they are painted, i have added more weathering after i had taken these pictures.





my idea for the banner was that it is captured imperial scripture that has been defaced by chaos Razz


Also made a trasport



painted




And i am currently working on this Leman Russ tank






Wheww thats alot of pictures! most ever posted at once? maybe Laughing

Scupting the masks have given me inspiration for a new possessed warband but that will be sometime in the future Wink


C&C always welcome! Smile

I absolutely love this.

I will check out the link you supplied but don't be surprised if I start asking you questions.

As we are working on an Imperial Renegade Squad for Death Squads and this is very similar.

Where did the base came from for your transport?

Wow, great stuff! The conversions are awe- and gruesome! I really like your masks, I hope mine will turn out as cool when I give the Blood Pact a try in the perhaps not so far future.

@Eliazar
Thank you very much Smile and good luck when you do give it a go

@Da bank
no problem Smile

Well the Russ is all done. Tried to make it look its seen alot of action on the field. Also added afew more dead things, arms/hands for the ones who refuse to join the blood pact and the legs/feet for the ones who deserted them Wink





Back to the troops next, ordered some FW renegade arms, some backpacts and guns from maxmini. they should be good for variation.

C&C always welcome Smile

Oh my good!!!

Our work is amazing. They are so corrupted, evil and foul troops. I like the effort that you have but in these miniatures of your. Especially the banner is very nicely executed and all the conversion Very Happy. All though I was hoping to see more battle damage in that truck and in the "looted" Leman Russ. Weathering is a good addition to the to your renegade force.

I salute you Sir, yes sir!

INCREDIBLY IMAGINATIVE! Beyond being a FINELY crafted model & WONDERFULLY painted, the Renegade Leman Russ REALLY captures the feel of the subject; VERY ATMOSHERIC piece. VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup
Weren't the Blood Pack featured in a Chapter Approved article some time ago? scratch

I really enjoyed browsing through your work, Foot! Well done! I have to admit, I am not a big fan of 40K Chaos stuff, but I do greatly appreciate your conversion work and your creativity.

The mask-sculpting is also very impressive, and I think it is great that you are making such an individualised army. Are there official rules for these Renegade guys?

There is just one minor thing that I would dare to criticise, and that is the bases. Although I think the wet-mud-effect is great for the tank, it looks a little too shiny on the infantry (in my humble and irrelevant opinion). It looks a little like they are wading through ... well... feces Smile No offence meant, honestly!

[EDIT]: Forgot to say that I think that the weathering on the vehicles is brilliant!

@Da Bank
I think the 1/32 is alot bigger than 40k scale. i would stick with the 1/35 scale

@Mordheimer
Cheers Smile

@DeafNala
Thank you! Smile
Indeed they were, 297? or sometime around there i think. I also think its the same article as one of the links i posted apart form the rules for them.

@Tom
Thanks!
I think there are rules just fro the troops somewhere, but im just using the Imperial Guard rules. there are Renegade rules from Forge World.
No offense taken Smile i always thought it looked like some type of cake Razz any ideas how i could change this look?

@melvino$
thanks!

Well apparently i have exceeded my monthly photobucket bandwidth somehow Sad

@Da Bank - cheers mate. give it a go, would like to see what you come up with Smile

@Matt - Thanks Smile the mud on the tanks were made using MIG pigments, very handy stuff for quick, easy weathering. and the mud on the bases were made from polly filler stuff and just painted over it.

Right so now that my pictures seem to be working again i have a small update
Some random troopers



Melta trooper for my command squad


And a Veteran Sargent


And heres the first out of 10 heads i will be casting for myself(saves sculpting 90something of them Wink )


C&C always welcome Smile

COOL STUFF! The "Bad Guys" in 40K definitely ARE MUCH more interesting than the "Good Guys". The Command Squad is INCREDIBLE; I LOVE the Musician. EXCELLENT WORK! thumbsup

VERY COOL! They have a certain dynamic, in motion feel to their positioning that is REALLY appealing for moi. The last Guy [the bald one with the beaky mask] is my favorite. VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup
