I was blabbing about this for few days now and here it is the Facebook contest "Know your Bits". The goal is to be the first person to name the box sets that have been used to make this Nightlord beast. The person who gets the most right answers by 15th of February 12:00 CET wins a 100 USD commission discount at Den of Imagination. So browse your sprues, tell your friends, maybe they knows some of those bits.... and hurry!
So many boxes thrown into this project, a major kit bashing. Was going through many different horn sets but after all those trial and error I think that the best look is a bear skull. I did try to make the skull the same as on the NL symbol but in 3D from some angles he looked like he had a crown on his had which wasn't good.
Deep strike protocol proceeding. When you see them you will shit bricks. I wouldn't want to run into those guys. Ok back to reality. Just need to base them to finish the killer look. My fave guys are the second from the right side. I call him "tyranid slayer" and the shield guy. Oh who am I kidding, the whole five guys kick ass from here to the warp.
The Nightlord Project is progressing. Taking into account that the resin for the frozen lake hardens few days I decided that it's time to make the display base. I drilled a lot of holes in the wood, made a resin rock for the Raptors. I wanted them to be on higher ground like scouting troops. All the Termis are scattered around advancing towards the enemy. The Daemon Prince will be ascending from a warp portal that will be on the ground. He will be placed at the back of the display (white "DP" circle). He will be a big model so placing him at the front would cover the models behind him.
Termis on the table. It's an unique composition for this unit because it has a quite original gear set. We have a Thunderhammer Stormshield guy, three claw sets and a big chaos gun, don't remember the name of it. But those guys are supposed to look good on display so that doesn't matter. The only important thing is an appearance.
Still need some adjustments here and there and snow on the bases but I couldn't resist an update.
Some wip photos for you hope you like. I really like the helmet painted like it's a skull. That was the client's idea. Those guys have so many details.They come close to the Chaos Chosen guys from Dark Vengeance.
