Anthony's Hobby Plog

Postby Memento » Mon Dec 19, 2016 11:18 am

Just wanted to share what's on my hobby table at the moment. I'm converting up a Renegade Knight with bits I have lying around.

Bloodthirster of Insensate Rage (the mighty D-Thirster) from start to finish.

Surprising absolutely no one, I picked up Magnus the Red, Daemon Primarch of Tzeentch. Here's a quick start-to-finish sequence.

And so it begins...
01 - magnus on sprue.jpg
His torso is as big as a Space Marhine (30k Ahriman for scale) - In the lore, Magnus was among the largest of Primarchs in terms of physical stature. But holy crap is is tall.
02 - magnus torso.jpg
03 - magnus body.jpg
04 - magnus staff.jpg
I wish I'd taken a moment to take a picture of the base coating process. But I didn't. It was two layers of 1:1 Vallejo Warlord Purple and Royal Purple. I followed this is a Nuln Oil wash and then a drybrush highlight with more Warlord Purple.

Wings took by far the most time. I had to considerably up my drybrush game. More 1:1 Royal/Warlord with Imperial Blue moving into black for the mid-tones. Magic Blue for the highlights.
05 - magnus wing pattern.jpg
Quick picture of the armor subassemblies. I considered leaving most of his armor off (nipple horn breastplate!). But in the end I couldn't exclude it, it's just too good. Blue affect was accomplished with a silver basecoat and a slow layering of Vallejo Transparent Blue.

08 - magnus armor.jpg
Somewhere along the day I did some wetblending for the magical effect on his sword. I'm not 100% happy with it but it's fine for now. For the base, I added some chopped up bits of sprue to the Space Wolf Dreadnought arm that was included in the kit. Painted up with Armageddon Dust and Stirland Mud with an Aggrax Earthshade wash in between. Scrub grass for some more texture.

Great paint job! The model looks amazing but not sure how I feel about the horns growing out of his chest. I know it part of the model though.

Taller than either, especially the non-leaping varieties. But he's more solid than any of them, I think.

You'll have to excuse the crap job on Skarbrand for the moment. He's still a WIP I haven't been able to get to in months...

Finally got some pictures of Magnus with better lighting. Turns out if you look at him under daylight bulbs, he's not so orange...
