+WIP IT: Legio Custodes part II+

Hello Internets,

welcome back to another edition of WIP IT!

Just wanted to share the progress I've made on my lastest side-track project. I'm going to keep this one brief but will do a big parts overview sometime very soon because this guy is an amgalm of many of my grade A bits.

Gave him a totally blinged out base, and I think it holds him well and my idea is that it puts him at an indoor location, like the Imperial palace.

Back shot to sshow tthe cape, and yes I know it's a little beat up but I want this guy to be in the thick of combat, so I think it works.

and just a little close-up hot off the base.

Any way ass always C&C would be ggreatly appriciated, what ddo you guys think?

+WIP IT: Is that a Guardian spear+

...or are you just happy to see me?

Hello Intertubez,

Buddy times is back again with a little sidetrack WIP IT I've been working on. It's a Custodes, and I know he's not wearing his big pointy helmet. That is because I have yet to buy some high elf models so this head is just ticky-tacked on for now and I have to decide if this dude is rding dirty or if he wears his helmet.

I had been comtemplating modelling up some Legio Custodes ever since I saw US White Dwarf 300 with the Dave Taylor Custodes army in it, but have never really felt competent enough. Well apparently that feeling of inadequacy dissolving coupled with the rumors surrounding the new Grey Knight Codex (perfect 'counts as' Custodes as far as I can tell). I felt that I should start some character modelling and throwing ideas around. I always start with a character when I build a new army because that way if I don't like the look, feel, process, etc I can abandon the project without a huge amount of investment.

Also I love HeroHammer. Don't get me wrong I want there to be carnage all over the board but especially I want lots of action around the big personalities on the table. I guess thats the comic book/movie geek in me I want my heros to be completely bad-ass, and when my leader ends up in combat with the other guys leader I wanna see sparks fly and feelings to get hurt (feeling getting hurt is just a joke phrase used by my game group). I find the game more interesting that way, because I appreciate the focus on the personality of the army often embodied in the HQ or at least a particular squad, etc.

WIP IT: Legio Custodes

Here's a top down-ish shot of the Guardian Spear. It turned out pretty well I feel but would appreciate input if you all have any.

Little close-up of his shoulder insignia, the single headed Aquila. I will also use the two-headed eagle throughout as most art I have seen often includes one or the other and many times both, but I wanted to make his shoulder icon have the single head. You can also see I haven't filled in the legs so they appear smooth. I think I will only do it on the lower leg and leave the upper leg with the exposed supports, not sure yet.

Here's a shot of his 'Eligos Pattern' back-pack but this one has the eagle heads from the Space Marine Commander box instead of skulls. I haven't attached this yet as I need to work out a cape situation, whether that is sculpting it or kit-bashing it.

And finally I have this bit and I am curious if I should use it, it fits nicely and all, but what, if anything, do I need to do to the actual shape of the shield so it doesn't look like an =][= symbol. I had thought that maybe it could be as simple as to cut of the three little horizontal bars on there, but could use some input on this one.

Cool, well thanks everyone and hope you had a good holiday. Leave any input in the comments and as always Smoke Blood for the Blood God!

+WIP IT: Chimera Interiors+

Hello Inter-tubez,

Happy holidays to everyone and I hope it's all working out well for everyone. Just wanted to show some actual hobby progress to everyone, I am still slowly chugging along on my Rebel Guard army, and now have eerything at least built into sub assemblies so that I can play an essentially WYSIWYG game. I will get a group shot tomorrow hopefully when I do some gaming with the homies, although I have been intending on doing that for the last three weeks of gaming, so we'll see.

What see up top and below are my Chimera interiors I made.

I did a little research back when I made the psyker mutie transport and it's interior and in the schematic drawings shown in the Imperial Armour books from the Forge World there is a wall between the troop compartment and the crew compartment. This made it easy when I had the idea that I would create full interiors for all the vehicles in this army. Since all I had to do was close off the front (just like a rhino) someone could open all the doors and have a look inside without seeing an empty box essentially.

These top two pics are for the Command Chimera. I wanted to give this one some extra bling and equipment, like the view screens I stole from a rhino and I put a filed down vox on the wall as well although I am not sure you can tell what it is it may just look like more doo-dads, which is really the point anyway.

And finally this one is the basic troop model. Very simple two benches and a spare las-gun. With the psyker muties transport looking like a charnel ground/prison and the command one with all the gadgets I though it only appropriate that the standard transport be totally bare-bones. (already primed this one black so I tweaked the F outta the curves so you can make out the inside)

Well Tell me what you guys think, should I add more or are they good to go? Have you ever wondered why GW didn't just make a piece to go there (just like a rhino)? Anyway happy holidays and I just took some pics of another side-track project I started and I will get those up soon.

+Forge World Eldar & Incoming Vid Transmition 2+


Back again with an quick and easy re-post of some more ForgeWorld news a little sneeky peaky at some new Eldar Shadow Aspects and some more video love. It seems that Guard and Marineez aren't the only ones to get some infantry love, we'll have yo wait and see but based on ForgeWorld's previous forays into the 28 heroic infantry these Eldar will probably be amazing.

Anyway here's part two of their Badab War coverage and like I said FW pleease keep em coming!

Hoe you enjoyed.

+Incoming Vid Feed: The Badab War Q&A 1+

Hello InterTubez,

ForgeWorld just threw this video up on there website and I thought I'd put tit here for all the homies.

I think this is an awesome video and I really wish Games Workshop would follow FW's lead on this one and make more videos. GW, to there credit, has started doing the podcast design notes and whatnot but I would love to see a ton more of this type of media in relation to the hobby.

++Tron: Legacy++

Hello Interbloggispheres,

I hope everyone has been well the old Hashshashin's been in deep hiding taking care of family business, but I'm back and I want to try to ad create a post schedule thats less frequent then my bing, every single day posts and my famine no posts for a month cycle I find myself in.

Anyway not gonna talk about 40k today, I wanted to talk about Tron. I just saw the 12:01 3D IMAX last night and I gotta say it was pretty awesome. The 3-D wasn't particularly mind blowing by any means but the overall design and feel of the characters was superb and possibly the Tron-world is one of best and most cohesive design schemes I've seen ever, really.

As far as the plot is concerned I found it to be interesting and engaging although somewhat cheesy at points but never was it convoluted or forced it was as good, and even better, then can be expected for a Christmas-time thrill ride type flick. It had some Spiritual or philosophical tones that I appreciated as well as a straight forward plot.

The effects and action are top notch and really enjoyable to watch. The way the light ribbons trail off of the various vehicles not only looks amazing but it actually allows you to follow the action easily without confusion. I only mention this because I think other effects driven flicks sometimes are hard to tell what the hell is going on (transformers I looking at you!).

Overall I would say this film is a must see of the season and for this one the bigger the screen the better In my opinion, but don't sweat it if you can't catch in 3-D it didn't really have the awesome distance shots I was hoping for and nothing on par with some the crazy-ness seen in Avatar, but I liked Tron overall much more than Avatar. (I felt it somewhat necessary to compare these two)
