Gargoyles

Finally, a new model finished. I'm fairly happy with how the wings turned out. I didn't know how to paint them and just went with ink and I liked it. The pictures of course showed some small painting errors which I might correct, but then again..you'll have to look really close to see them..ssst.

Those wings came up pretty damn fine actually.

You should include something in the photo to give us an idea of scale (like a pen or something) because I suspect it's quite small which impresses me greatly.

I really like the wings. I also like the color variation on the carapace and tail barb.

The only critique I have is for a bit of shading wash on the green bits.

I just finished reading the Barimeaeus Trilogy and this, with the exception of the semi-organic weapon, fits right in visually.

@ Lee: I'll try and get a scale post up this weekend

@Arkonbey..hmm I'll have a look around in the ink/wash department. Thanks for the critique :)
Sometimes I go with a darker green and highlight it with this one..but a wash will probably be a bit easier on these small critters.

Hmm, the new models look really, really nice. Probably a good thing i'm not in one of those 'Nid moods atm.

Nah, haven't painted anything as of late. Been so flat out with work sadly enough :(

Although, i'm debating if i'm going to do another ' re-structure' of my Blog again to include additional hobby related things that still require a more, well, hands on approach *nods*

Hmm, while it's on my mind, do you have any pics of the Gargoyle still it's individual pieces?

Interested to see what it looks like pre-assembly *nods*

I don't have any pre-assembly pics of the painted parts. I did however find a pic of the sprues:

I need to restructure the blog too this summer. I'm thinking of changing to a white background and..dumdumdum..a decent banner.

Mmmm, such pretty sprues lol. Might actually have to invest in a box of the gargoyles now later on in the far future.

Ewwww, white background!! lol

Howdy fellow Nid player!

really funny that we live only a few blocks apart (parelflat) and I didn't even know that there was a 40k player so nearby :)

Just restarted after a hiatus of a few years to build up my nid force. And might i say, those are damn nifty models. Looking forward to seeing more pictures

Hi Chris,

I think we've already met, even more so, I've been at your home ;)
You're a friend of Rene aren't you?
I've been living here for 4 years, it's been at least that long ago since me, my brother (and iirc a friend) were at your place.

Good time to start up again :)
After next week there wíll be more pictures!

greets,
Arjan

I know we've met, just never knew you lived so nearby ;)

I'm indeed a friend of René.

Fancy playing some more 40k? I can use some training and nid versus nid might give some nice insights in nid tactics :)

cheers,
Chris
