Imperial Fists Vulcan Finished

Hello to everyone!

I have just finished painting (at last :P ) my Imperial Fists Vulcan Conversion just in time for tommorow's Tournament! I am happy with the way he turned out, this model was oozing with detail and character and I had a blast painting him!

As always I would be more than happy to hear your comments and remarks and see your votes on CoolMiniOrNot  :)

Finally some inspiration as always in form of great tunes.... 

Oh, and Happy Halloween :P

Vulcan Imperial Fists Conversion

Hello everyone! Its so good to be back on my table and this time I decided to build something that I'm going to need for an upcoming tournament!

I have been playing with my favorite character, none other than Captain Darnath Lysander of course for quite some time now and I decided I needed a change. A Vulcan army list was the next thing that could suit my style of playing... the difficult part was that Vulcan is part of the Salamanders range, so I had to do something that could fit in my sea of yellow :P

Back when Forgeworld started messing around with Badab wars, they released this glorious model and it actually hit me that I should use it as a base to convert to an Imperial Fists version of Vulcan, mainly due to the bad ass mounted flamer that he has...!

For those of you who haven't yet understood the base of the model, yes its Lugft Hyron of the Astral Claws :P

Main problem I faced with the conversion was how on earth I would do the spear, but then along came MaxMini as always to solve my bits problems. The head is also from the MaxMini range of products and I think it fits nicely. The conversion is finished with some of the great Forgeworld photo etched fists that have proven so useful in the past too!

So off to the painting table, what do you think?

I leave you with a song that really speaks to my soul...

Double the fun...

Yes I know, its been a long while since I have posted anything completed here... but as I have already said, life is always giving you things to get your hands full and this whole last month hasn't been an exception to that...

BUT I am ready to make it up for you with 2 brand new paintjobs I have just finished for a painting contest organized by the Greek Warhammer Forum and I would really like to get your feedback as they are painted for a contest as I said.

Ork Big Mek with Custom Force Field

This guy is one of my favourite GW sculpts and I really just needed a chance to get my brushes on him. I really had a blast painting him. I would love to see your votes on CMON as well! 

Skaven Warlord Queek Headtaker

Another great mini, although I was kinda connected emotionally to the older version of him, I got him for a bargain and of course I couldn't resist some skaven painting. Maybe this would be the kick for me to get involved with my eternally building Skaven army again, who knows ... In the meantime, leave him a vote as well! ;)

Inspiration for these guys (especially for the ork) came out of these AWESOME band! They're stuck in repeat the past few days...

a demoti-post

Hello people!

I have been quite busy lately with work as always but I have found some time to paint and the results will be shown soon enough.

In the meantime I made a small demotivational with a picture I have found and an idea that was in my mind for quite a few time now!

Anohter caption to this could be "I'm sure this is 'shopped" , but that would be too obvious and not that much 40K related :P 

Anyways it gave me a giggle ... :P Hope that you like! 

and of course some music from Machine Head's great latest album to accompany this post
