Hobby Sunday 05/03/17- Ghouls, Genestealers and Ruins

This week, I have been working on a number of projects. First up, I started on my work towards my Terrorgheist as part of Monster March (posted earlier today).

While I was waiting on the Terrorgheist to dry, I decided to crack on with painting my Crypt Horrors and Ghouls. I had previously started these by giving them a couple of basecoats of Screamer Pink. I had decided to paint them up in flesh-like colours, using a nice guide that I found online. 

After the basecoat, I gave them a wash of Reikland Fleshshade. 



This was followed by a drybrush of Cadian Fleshtone.



Followed by a drybrush of Kislev Flesh. 



All that is left if to pick out the details of the bone and metal and do the bases. 

I also began work assembling the beginnings of my Genestealers Cult army. This consisted of assembling the contents of the Deathwatch Overkill boxed set. I have a ton of models to get built and painted, so will hopefully be getting through these soon. 



Finally, I did a little bit of work on my Cityfight Ruins. Following my efforts last time, I decided to do some more work on the rusted effect that I was making. I will need to wait for the weather to improve before I can varnish this and make a start on the salt rust effect that I am using. 







So that has been the hobby progress for this week. What do you think?

  1. All progress is good progress. Are you going to wash the building, it looks like the grey needs more shading? Grubby it up more perhaps?

    1. The building isn't actually going to be grey in the end. I had undercoated it and planned to finish it like the rest of my buildings. Then I saw the rust tutorial and decided to change it. I've given it a coat of green once the salt was applied and plan to weather this instead.

  2. That's a mighty amount of work in there mike! I bought some Khorne red air to make a start on my own cult stuff later this month.

    What's the overkill stuff like to work with?

    1. It's not bad Nick. It's all pretty mono-pose, like much of the game stuff, but it fits in well with the rest of the range.

    1. Cheers Alex. Most of this was actually done on Saturday! I've spent the rest of the week writing up battle reports.

  4. And thus the first signs of the cult on this blog. Disturbing times lie ahead my friends; dark times, full of uncertainty, seeing foes in every shadow...

    Can you tell I'm excited? :D

  5. Hahaha :D

    I actually bought the codex and the datacards a couple months back but then got turned off by the thought of the amount of models you need to move around/build/paint. They're such a cool army but I really can't deal with armies with so many models, I get annoyed by that super quick.

    I'm curious how your experience will be, but coming from playing Orks and Guard you're probably kinda used to it. And maybe if I read enough of your batreps I'll come around!

    1. Yeah, it's certainly going to be daunting. Even just assembling them is going to take a while!
