Meet the First Claw

The whole First Claw, with display board.

Some random shot of the kind folks in First Claw:

Decimus the new Prophet of Eighth Legion, successor of Talos Valcoran

Will be bringing them to the next Legio Army Throwdown =)

Legio Army Throwdown - Night Lord - Army Display Board

I have two more marines to paint but I'm really sick of painting power armor already... yesterday went out to meet with friends and drop by mid-valley (the garden) to procure some material for army display board, spent about 2 hours on and off last night to assemble the thing...

(For some unknown reason, those two pool of white glue look annoyingly obscene)

Cover the polystyrene with paper clay (it smells funny...), code my pocket money project until 3am while waiting it to be dry and then goto sleep

Based coated the stuff earlier while continue coding....

started to paint the rocky wall beside and the base...

A little bit of work on the building and it's done

closer look to the building

placed some of my previously painted Black Legion CSM dudes to gauge the look and feel.

You might say, huh? Done?? it looks very blacky! Actually instead of going for everything painted and leaving no black kind of look, I wanted this piece to present a moody atmosphere which I think will fit Night Lords well. 

In front of a ruin building in a windy foggy night with dim moonlight, the Night Lords sneakily trying to advance and prowl the unfortunate victim.

Heading to dinner and then to coding, till next time folks.

ps: C&C needed for the display board, since I am slightly ahead of schedule on both painting and coding, I might be able to improve it.

Night Lords first claw - 5 down, 5 more to go

Five down, five moar to go

Also started to work on the heldrake a little bit. This bugger is not only hard to travel, I guess it will took me forever to paint it as well...

Night Lord Banner

Was burnt out painting infantry... so I get my lazy arse to work on a banner, found the below online and wanna do a "clone" of it...

Okey.. maybe minus all those wording which is impossible to paint =P But then I realize that I already have  a winged skull on top of the banner... so, the below abomination was born...

Errr... can anyone figure out what is on the banner? it's still WIP by the way...

Legio Throwdown - Troop Choice 2 WIP

Assembled my final few pieces for taking part in Legio Malaysia Army Throwdown 2013, this is the second troop choice that I have in my army list, differ from previous bolter toting look, for this squad, I'm going for a fully close combat look.

Adjusted some chainsword gripping hand's angle, the original pose is abit stiff and static

My version of "Talos/Decimus" inspired by Aaron Dembski Bowden's Night Lord trilogy

Come at me bro!

I'm proud of this piece, never expect Berzerker's leg and head (I scrap off the "teeth" thingy, always find that fugly) could produce a dynamic pose, maybe I will sculpt this fella some floating long hair.

Some basing and priming, and they are ready to be paint =) I have about a month to work on them (for first deadline I will turn in the painted troop in previous post). Till next time.
