Today I took the plunge and joined The Ammo Bunker under the username of Ordo. It’s been something I’ve been meaning to do for ages and I’ve heard such good things about it and that the projects that go on are truely inspirational. I intend to post some of my projects but would like to have this blog as the main outlet as I think you can spread yourself too thin with social media so I’ll be sticking to my three of choice, WordPress, Instagram and Ammo Bunker.
Talking of social media, I’ve just started the Black Earth Instagram under blackearthbitz. I shall be posting more pics of whats on the horizon for that venture today, so head over and follow if you want to see.
So paint brushes! These beauties arrived this morning.
Heard they were good. Has anyone used them? I’m going to have to make a special character to christen them with I think 🙂
And it wouldn’t be a proper post without a pic of some models. So here’s todays work.
Yesterday I posted a pic of a model I’d created and then 3D printed. The idea was to create new bodies to be used as Daemonettes as the GW ones are a little static in my opinion with the claws and the heads being the really useful bits.
So below you will see the finished assembled model ready for primer and a group shot of her and her buddies
I hope you like them.
Here’s a little teaser shot of a rather large monstrosity I have been working on over the past month. A Plague Worm of Nurgle. This leviathan will be the center piece of the army and I have a long way to go until I’m happy it’s finished, but for now here’s a shot of the head.
Here is my fully painted scratch built female pit slave, Vincentia.
She stands at 90mm tall and was made up of all kinds of bits like, watch parts, dental implants, screws, wire, resin and modeling putty. I wanted the paint job to look weathered and battered as if she has just won another hard fight for her masters and adoring fans. Being a big fan of red at the moment so naturally I painted her red, but with thin layers of Chestnut ink layered over the armoured parts.
I hope you like her and any comments are welcome 🙂
This is my project that uses kit bashing, sculpting and 3D printing.
The idea behind this model is to portray what a child would be like in the seething mass that is Terra.
A child is hope but that hope has already been damaged due to the harsh reality of his surroundings, his crude bionic leg is a testiment to that and the skull he cradles in his arms shows loss of a different more brutal kind.
His gaze is down cast and mournful but there is a peace to him, a resignation to the life he leads under the ever watchfull gaze of the Emperor in the decaying, sprawling halls of Terra.
The inspiration for this piece has been John Blanche and his ever inspirational art and figure painting, Ian Miller whos art is always at hand, and my fellow hobbyists who have embraced the Pilgryme path and continue to push the boundries of this hobby that we so dearly love. Your creativity knows no bounds and I thank you for being awesome.
Next pictures to come will be painted ones!
Another scratch build I did some time ago a Nurgle Sister of Blight.
Inspired by the art works of John Blanche, this female pit slave stands at 9.5cm tall and is a scratch build, with the Talos Pain Engine head as the only GW piece used.
I’m pretty pleased with the way she turned out and now all I have to do is find the time to paint her!
