[40K] Comission Death Guard II

Happy New Year fellows gamers and modelers! (and rest of the people)

An update in January first, I hope this is a new custom and this year I post more, because that mean I have been working in more models.

But let me show you the first HQ of this army, a Malignant Plaguecaster, and again...converted. This time I can´t hold myself, specially when I found that the Plague Marines box brings a...fly head!!! Yesss, a mutated fly head!! And GW doesn´t show it anywhere! What the heeeeeeeeeeeeell?!! Why?! I had a theme for the conversion then, and as I´m converting Typhus, I had some demons flies to use  too. So, I give you the Lord of the Flies!!




Also, a WIP of Typhus, inspired by the amazing Alex Boyd art

[40K] Comission, Death Guard

Hello pals!

Again months missing but update! This time I´m going to show you the first part of a new comission, a whole Death Guard army. It´s been a while since a painted a Chaos model, and now I have a lot of models in my work desk (which curiosly is starting to age and rotten...maybe I need some Emperor´s Tears). These models are so great than I will not do many conversion (but you now me...there will be, of course there will be), but the client and I don´t like a "clasic green scheme" so we choose an the Great Crusada / Heresy colours, and a lot of dirt, drip and blood (well, not too much blood, this is not a Khorne army).

Let´s see these first models:

* Dark Imperium Plague Marines: Well, first conversion, but a little one! I swear! I changed the Champion´s head for a FW Iron Hands head, I like how it looks, and gives more cohesion to the squad, a little of green stuff here and there and done!


You have a bionic eye and the other one is full of pustules? Worry not citizen, Papa Nurgle will give you a new one! But maybe not in the face...


The backpack is from the plague caster, the original backpack will be use in other model


A classic, two special weapons, again another conversion (I know, I know...), the plasma gun from the First Trike kit will make an amazing add-on to this squad. And also one of the heads.


And the rest


Icon bearer (what? Another conversion? Look behind you! A three-head monkey!!)


I choose to paint the cloaks like banners, I have seen it in others models and really like it. A trophie and a relic


* First Strike Plague Marines: Nothing special, just some green stuff to repair where the plasma gun was originaly


* Plague Brethen: Special Edition models...so you don´t make any change


* Foul Blightspawn: The first Hero, I remade the dropping effect of the hosepipe, I think the sculpt was so...artificial, looks false, so I remade it with a hair and glue, a classic


I used the GW technical for the oxide effects, the mucus and the bases, also a clasical, watered Vermin Brown. It was fun

Lack of updates...

Just because I forgot to show you my jobs...I don´t know why I have a blog, well, perhaps to don´t miss the updates of another great blogs :P

Well, let´s show you one of my last projects, the grav-rhinos! Yes, I´m a big fan of that idea since I saw it in the Ilustrated Guide of the Horus Heresy, in fact two years ago I made one model for a tournament, but I have to finish it to quickly because I didn´t manage my time correctly, but this year I had half and a month to made another and change some details od the previous one, and you know what? Yessss!!! Again I run out of time! What kind of magic is this?!!!

Let´s stop crying and show you some pics


First, the basic structure of the model, at the left you can see the model I made two years ago, but stripped from some details that I will remake


The front, I try to do a little homage to the SoB rhino from the 2nd edition, but keep in my style


Working in the side details, the hatch, the exhaust pipes and details to break the flat surfaces


A view of the down side, you can see there is not much details, but I don´t think is a side of the model that will show very often


Testing the "flying" bases"



At this moment, my girlfriend told me that I should make somekind of grav plates, like the Repulsor or the Land Speeder


Another test, just to show that with this model I could play with Rhino or Inmolators....nice


Well, this is all by now. Yes...I couldn´t paint them, so no "best painted" award for me...but well, I´m finding that now my army has a lot of movility, and that is no joke

Comission for Bac Ninh Miniatures

Hello pals! (if there is someone still there)

Well, today I bring you my first professional comission, and curiosly isn´t Fantasy or Sci-Fi, is historical!! José Carmena from Bac Ninh Miniatures was looking for a sculptor to make some changes in a few models, so they could look like the members of the White Tiger regiment, from the Boshin Wars. I wasn´t able to say not to this challenge and after some sessions of modeling (to make a correct hakama is not easy) and converting master-models, we had 8 bodies and 8 heads.

Here you can see them assembled:



I really liked this comission, there are things that are good idea in fantasy models, but you can´t make in historical models (over dinamic clothes for example) so I learned a lot, and also document for the project (lookig for pics, watching videos to see how a hakama moves...) was very funny.

I don´t play historics wargames, althougt I would do it so I can use these models (I really fell in love with them), but also I think that In Her Majesty Name or Test of Honour would be perfect excuses to use them. So if you like them and are interested in getting them, you can find the packs here

[40k] Comission, Grey Knights Paladins

Hello again.

Another comission from my friend, his Grey Knight army is still growing and growing, and he wanted to add a Paladin squad now. But a very "overpowered unit", because although he wanted all the standard choices in this kind of squad (apothecary, banner, etc...) also wanted them all with daemonhammers (why not?!). A kit from Chapterhouse, some minor conversions and voilá!.

For the paintjob, I keep the level from previous comission, but also made one or two OLS effects.

Well, no more words, now the pics




My first serious NMM paint, copied from the box, but well, it´s something

Internet says that is an hexagramic rune

More texts

Someone is still living

Some psyquic power

And Kaldor with them

[40K] Comission Grey Knights Dreadknights

Hello again.

Bad pics, made with hurry because I forgot to photograph them before they were given to my client (again, a friend). They were converted to be more armoured, and with least exposed pilots. The hip was widened to make them look more correctly with the new cockpit. Well, here you have






I hope you like them!

[Comission] Robotech, Max & Miriya Sterling

Hi again people.

Do you have been maybe asking where the hell I was? Well, not dead of course. I have done some more comission and projects but never make any pic of them or upload a WIP post. This is of course all my fault, and don´t have any excuse (not a good one to be realistic) but this time I´m going to use the update of other blog to show you these models. An abusse? Maybe, but I´m spanish, and if someone do the job for you, don´t move a finger and just...smile

* Max Sterling: You can see the pics here

What I´m doing now? Well, I have a Grey Knights Paladin Squad on my desk, also the Sister of Silence, Custodes and new models for my Sister of battle Army are marching over my table work, beating all other previous project I had...I hope to have a good year.

Thank you for watching!
