Starting a mob for Gorkamorka

With the new edition, 40k is slipped backwards from priority, because we still wait for the first new codices and the bigger faq with a lot of changes.

So the plan comes up to start some side projects, for which we chose some older games from GW. The start makes the game where gangs of orcs fighting each other: Gorkamorka.

I started to build a mob with some bits and a few models from the box set black reach. I also got 2 old tin grots. 

The models are a little more than needed for the start, but so I can switch and test a little bit. Also got a Trukk, but I haven't started building yet. The started painting is mostly done with contrast paint (green, brown, beige).

An other project I started is the reimagination of the Man o' War starter box, but more from that next time.

Elven Archer finished

The archers are finished and battle ready.
I'm really satisfied with how they look on the round bases and in the color sheme of the Lumineth.

Elven Archers

Continued the painting of the archers.
Now they have black base edges and I started with the metal color parts aon some models.

Pointy Elves

I got the new elf box, to which I added some older high elves. The scale of the older models is ok and with the bigger bases they fit good to the new models.
The riders are not build yet, because the kit don't fit like I want (Wanted the riders seperate frome the horses, for better painting).

I've started to paint the elf archers, because I wanted to test some paints.

On the lower coat from the archer I tested some contrast paint. I still need some exercise with them, but like the mix of paint and ink.

More Starships (Stars and Steel)

I painted some more starships.
This time a micro fleet for the tabletop game Stars and Steel.
Four squadrons/commanders for the smalles battle size "Skirmish".

Was fun to paint them and its goes very fast, because of there size (Scale is 1/1000, the bases are 20mm squares).

1/1000 micro fleet

I also continued some chaos stuff for 40k especially because of the announcement of the new edition, but more photos next time.

From outer space (Starships/BFG)

Haven't build and painted much from 40k miniatures in the last time, so updates for the Chaos/Death Guard will come in some next posts.

But I have started to paint some starships.
They are all 3d printed and mainly for BFG, but I wanted to use the Full Thrust rules, because the are free and include rules for designing own ships.

Painted chaos fleet: 
Grandcruiser, heavy cruiser with fighter squadrons and strike cruiser with boarding ships.

Painted Models: 
Chaos grandcruiser, chaos heavy cruiser, Black Templars strike cruiser, chaos strike cruiser and boarding ships.

All ships with a lot unpainted ships from different fleets: 
Chaos, Imperial, Space Marines and Mechanicus.

Plague Marines

The seven Plague Marines from the start box are now build and based. The backpacks are missing on the picture, because I will paint them seperate. If I have enough time, they will get primed at the weekend.
Now I can set up four squads each 5 man strong (2 with plasma guns and 2 with blight launcher).

The call of the Lord of Decay

As mentioned in the last post, I have also some Death guard models on the tabel (with some fancy tablecloth 😀).

Seven Plague Marines are partially painted, 6 easy to build marines are fully build and seven more marines from the start box are going to come (one is sneaking in the downer left corner).

I also have found the missing Plaguebearers from which I strip the color, so that they can get the same look like there brothers and I can complete a 30 man squad.

Ongoing Projects

At the moment I have many projects in the making. Some are close the be finished and some are barely started. I hope a few will find a successful end in the not so far future.

Chaos Knights (3 models, close to end)
The Chaos Knight is now full painted (also with mounted head).
The main body, weapons and bases of the Wardogs are also finished, the shoulder pads and armour plates still need some paint.
All decals are still missing, but I have finished them in digital form, so I only need to print them somehow.

Plaguebearers (25 models, started paintig)
For the reinforcement of my chaos armys I started a 30 model strong Plaguebearers squad (6 still missing) with a Spoilpox Scrivener. The Plaguebearers are the 3. edition tin models.
I also plan to add a Nurgle Herold later for some more boosting.

Khorne Berzerker (12 models, built and primed)
Another reinforcement for chaos are a Squad of 10 Khorne Berzerker with a Khorne Lord and a Khorne Dark Apostle. The Lord is a lightly converted AoS model and the Apostle is mainly built from the new and old Chaos Marine kit.

This is all very chaos and 40k heavy, there a also some other projects for which I have no photos or aren't very advanced:
  • Warcry
  • Black Templars
  • Deathwing
  • Death Guard
  • Frostgrave

Black Templars #5 (custom decals)

I have made some custom decals for my Black Templars.
They are only the chapter heraldic crosses, but I needed some smaller ones for shoulder pads with name plates. And in the newer Space Marine kits aren’t Black Templars crosses anymore.

I have used some cheap decal paper from Amazon for laser printers, worked very well.For the handling after the printing I find the liquids from Microscale very useful, which can be simply applied with a brush.
After the printing simply apply Liquid Decal Film for the sealing on the decal paper and let it dry. Then when you apply the decals first brush some Micro Set on the miniature. Applying then works like with every normal water slide decals (put some drops water on the decal and after it loses, slide it on the prepared place on the miniature and take the access water with some paper towel).
For a better adhesion and to minimize wrinkles apply Micro Sol after.

Chaos Knights #2 and Black Templars #4

The Chaos Knight is ready build and painted with the exception of the head and the heraldic shield, which are also painted but I wait with the assembly, till I have finished all heraldic.
For this I have bought some decal paper, which hopefully arrives in the next days, so that I can print some custom decals.
The knight also got a Icarus autocannon beside the two gatling guns.

Besides the knight I also started to build some more Black Templar from some leftover Space Marines. 
Next week the Faith and Fury campaign book will get released, so I hope they will get some good rules like the chapters of the first founding.

Chaos Knight (and a lost battle)

The last battle of the powerful warmaster Abaddon against the unworthy Ultramarines was shockingly not that great for the warmaster.
The lose of the initiativ, slow moving so that the first close combat was in the 4th battle round and a bad combat result from Abaddon himself (he only killed one Infiltrator. :O ) resulted in a defeat.

The normal Chaos Marines are not that great in the shooting phase, so I decided to reinforce the army with some heavy firepower of a Chaos Knight.
I build him with 2 gatling guns in a red and white color scheme.
Still wip, but already looking decent for me.
