Kevin's Showcase and Painting Thread - Updated Terrain Set Ups!

Recommended Posts

Kevin    45

Hey guys, I am working on my three Nulll-Maiden Rhinos, they are blue/teal as with the rest of my Inquisition army. After these rhinos are done I will do 2 chimeras and then 3 landraiders, all in the same scheme. Then my Inquisition will be ready for 8th edition!

Today I managed to finish all the blue armor on all three rhinos, and get one of them mostly finished (all its missing is that OSL on the headlights which I will do once all 8 tanks are done.) I am also contemplating some black drybrushing/stippling over the exhaust ports and was wondering what you guys thought about that. I also have to do the top doors. But nevertheless here is the photos of the completed one, C&C is appreciated.

Here are the finished Null Maiden Rhinos! By next Saturday I have to complete 2 Chimeras in the Same Scheme. As always C&C is appreciated, they do look a lot better not so close up, but let me know what you think!

Hey guys! I figured I would update the thread with what I have been working on. Today I finished magnetizing a Necro/War Sphinx for Tomb Kings. This was done for a friend and in return he is gonna strip some models for me. I am always happy to trade off with my skills for something I lack in, so if you need stuff magnetized I would be happy to trade my skills for you skill in something (painting, terrain making, etc...) Anyways this was one of the harder kits I have had to magnetize, as I had to counter sink many magnets so the models would sit flush on the howdah, but in the end I believe it came out great!

That weathering on those tanks is REALLY well done. How did you do it? I'd like to try it on some of my Dunecrawlers.

I made sure the tracks were mostly black, and then I dry brushed (heavily) Dryad bark, then Mournfang Brown, then Steel Legion Drab. Being sure to get "messy" around the bottom/sides of the tank. Finally I did a very light dry brush of silver on the tracks.

Huh, I wouldn't think that that would look as good as it does. Nice!

Hey guys, I finished these 2 weeks ago but never got them pictured. Two Chimeras for my Inquisition army! Up next is to paint the 3 Landraiders I finished building yesterday, and after that we are moving away from GW for a brief moment! Stay tuned, also as always C&C is appreciated,

Hey guys I was commissioned to build and paint a Stormcast display board. Here is what I have done so far. I built the board to be a lot stronger then the pictures frames many people us (although nothing wrong with those). I added legs to make it stand out more. This was done using a 2x2 foot 1/4" MDF board and trimming with 1" square molding. The legs were simple replacement legs that I used vice grips to take out the screw part. Everything has wood glue and finishing nails to make things secure. Final step on the initial construction was to sand all the joints on the molding to ensure everything is 100% flush with no gaps.

1.thumb.jpg.2ae80da7f21a3aefda025746d5823a06.jpg2.thumb.jpg.b6738207a415e7c95ad880975dceb8cb.jpg

Next I cut the initial lay of foam (1/2" thick), and  used a hot wire to add space at the front for some water effect. After that was done I traced out the GW trees and used my wood engraver (basically a hot knife with a bunch of attachments) to hollow in where the tree would go, and a hollow spot in the center of each circle for a strong magnet. After that Grey Stuff (green stuff but grey) was used to fill in each ring and magnet spot so the trees would sit exactly flush and the magnets would have a strong hold. This was done by stuffing grey stuff into each ring and then adding water to the bottom of a tree (so the grey stuff would not stick), using the tree to press down and turn in each ring so there was an exact flat flush ring for each tree to sit in.

That is where I am at so far, I hope to have the rest of the foam work done tonight (the space at the back will have raised platforms). After that I have to sand the entire board and then onto painting the board. After the board is painting I have 3 GW trees and 1 GW realm gate to paint to match the stromcast army. And then Finally I have to paint the trimming of the board to match the base trimming on his models, and apply the water effect. All in all it should take me about 10 hours, so far I have put 2 hours in.

Update on the board, all the foam is cut and glued, the only thing left to do with the foam is to burn in a river that is marked on the board starting from the rock face. I set up the models as a mock up to see where I was at. This weekend I want to paint the trees and realm gate (the one in the board is mine).

Hey guys I finished the Custodes Landraiders. As always comments and critisim are welcome. I tried to do a bit more battle damage but wanted to keep them mostly clean. I think the tracks and the chipping add enough of depth to the model while not going overboard (also the chipping adds a convineint way to cover up as mistakes haha). Let me know what you think.

Hey guys I finished the bases for the Custdoes @marcuss is painting for me. I tried to do them to a good quality to match the paint job. Let me know what you think.

Hey guys I finisheda Custodes and Tau Display board. I really like the Custodes one, the different elements come together very well. I think the lights looks awesome, and the broken pavement seems to works quite well. The Tau one was very simple with a fairly quick paint job, but adds a lot to the army. As always please let me know if you have any comments/suggestions.

Hey guys we are finally going through all our terrain and matching each mat with it's dedicated terrain. We want to eventually have 10 tables of fully stocked terrain usable for 40k, with the plan of running tourneys in the future. Also a couple dedicated AoS tables but those aren't a goal right now, although some of the 40k tables will be usable for AoS. Below is what we have had a chance to go through so far!

Lava Board

DSC01033.thumb.JPG.e184b2c3e3dea0423d94fb9436f85b17.JPG

- We would like a couple more ruin pieces for this table, and maybe a bigger LoS blocking rock.

Ruined Chaos Table

DSC01035.thumb.JPG.a402bd9ab1781d7aab98b5de18f5d2ec.JPG

- This table could have be arranged a bit better, this is all GF9 stuff and we wouldn't mind picking up a couple of the larger square GF9 ruins.

Desert Highlands

DSC01037.thumb.JPG.83c1a8546c40218605d58e4c79c974fd.JPG

- We are pretty happy with this, we would like to add 2 - 3 more not rocky outcropping features though. 

Intact Industrial Table

DSC01040.thumb.JPG.1002d3af18f6ddfece1a473e1e3e9757.JPG

- We are happy with this table, although it could use one bigger LoS blocking piece.

Mushroom Kingdom

DSC01044.thumb.JPG.61a08662f966a290338a2de3d3df1528.JPG

- This table is alright, we wanna do one more pegasus kit, and obviously paint/base both of them to match the table.

Mars Industrial

DSC01042.thumb.JPG.54c4661d73bb50f5641bdaa45cecb5e7.JPG

- As you can see we currently do not have any specific terrain for this mat, and would love your ideas on what would fit it.

More pics to come! We are open to your suggestion and have other unused terrain we would be willing to trade if you have any that would fit the above table.

Those look pretty sick, guys. Are those all fat mats? They look more like vinyl or some other material.

They are from GameMat.eu, but they are mouse pad mats yes. They probably look different due to the camera/lighting.

Hey guys we finished taking pictures! See below!

Over Grown Ruins

DSC01053.thumb.JPG.b951baa39a1ccc8328565a3019e8cdd2.JPG

- We are happy with this table in its current state.

Imperial Sector

DSC01056.thumb.JPG.620c48536d9f62dbedf0b23602bff777.JPG

- As you can see, this table is very lacking! This will be the one we work on after bringing all the other tables up to snuff.

Organic Vegitation

DSC01055.thumb.JPG.25c81d738a6816934efb9f275995f3a5.JPG

- This table needs some more elements, but we want to keep the table ruins free, we are thinking of adding 2 ponds and a giant water fall piece to add some LoS blocking.

Gothic Ruins

DSC01058.thumb.JPG.b52ad30711825bd8571c5f067ae78d4e.JPG

- We obviously need a mat for this table, and then a couple more pieces to fill it out, no idea on what yet. 

Bonus!

DSC01059.thumb.JPG.0ffb6dea50dfca4e8a7343d11c21a64c.JPG

- As a bonus this is some AoS terrain we have, usable on any board to give it a more fantasy feel.

Bonus #2!

DSC01066.thumb.JPG.785a6cea9028fc9b40facf2fd5bd2b16.JPG

- This is a Chaos Helfort that is in need of some repair, this will be used on the Lava Table to turn it more fntasyesque.
