    The final endless magic spell. The swirly effect looks a bit better in real life as you look at it from a distance and not this close. But a picture from further away doesn't really catch it either :(

    And my chaos space marine box is finally getting done, terminator sorceror lord and a squad of marines are done. The hellbrute still needs shading though.

    I painted a chicken. Probably the best looking model I've ever made. @Lord-Marcus isn't there a competition I can enter this one in? :p Also I really need to find a better place to take pictures.

    I've only noticed this thread now. Some nice works, @Canas !

    1) Is the hellbrute for Iron Warriors?
    2) I love what you've done with Oxyotl. Great blending!

    Thanks ^^

    The hellbrute, as well as the other Chaos space marines don't really belong to any chapter. I just tried giving them a colourscheme I'd like that'd somewhat fit with Tzeentch without making everything super bright blue again (only the highlights are bright now, so partial succes :p). No idea if it happens to coincide with an official chapter's collourscheme.

    Ah, no, i wasn't looking at the color scheme (which, IIRC, is not the one used by Iron warriors), but more at the amount of metal, and the emphasis on it, (including the tentacular appendages) that fits well with that chapter.

    I think that the power scourge is supposed to be metal but i'm not too sure given that I have no codex. Might perfectly be its favored by the iron warriors.

    Some nighthaunt. After painting god knows how many Tzeentch arcanites and Tzaangor, god these things are easy to make look halfway decent. Imma start a nighthaunt army. Glueing them together was a pain though.

    And back to Tzeentch. This model was a pain, it's flail broke and I couldn't find it so I had to fix it with a chaos space marine part which is regular plastic while the curseling is resin, the stupid things wouldn't glue resulting in the mess where it connects. The golden paint didn't want to cooperate either. The shading saved it a bit though, leaving it merely rather ugly instead of a disaster. And at least the feathers on his back look decent.

    I made a hill.

    And then accidently melted like half of it with spray paint.

    It did turn allright though

    yeah the melting made the slopes much nicer and eh, slope-y-er. With the warm cutter I used till then it was all much more straight angles.

    Also, the deformed bumbs look much more like actual rocks/earth.

    If I can figure out a controlled manner to do this without wasting a spraycan's worth of paint it'd be a surprisingly decent technique for this.

    Several nighthaunt chainrasps tests. I don't entirely like the pure white base of their spooky bits, and I've tried some purple and blue bases with varying glazes/washes/that new nighthaunt spooky paint as well as just leaving it entirly black and using the spooky paints directly on that. But none of em really look too good. I think part of it is also that the chainrasps have so little going for them. There's only 3 differntly coloured parts so there's little you can use to make the model stand out and provide contrast or details. You have the black cap, the spooky bit and then their rusted weapons/chains.

    Though this is the first time I really look at em during dayligth and they do look a lot better than at night. Anyone have any good ideas for the base colour or for providing contrasts and details on em? I'd like to avoid using colours that jump out too much for their spookybits as those will get me into trouble with the more complicated models that do have details that'd potentially require those colours.

    You could try my ghost recipe on the one that you base coated white and shaded green:

    - base white
    - shade green
    - drybrush white
    - glaze waywatcher green
    - light drybrush white

    I think it looks pretty decent on ghosts.
