Those guys look amazing!

Could you post a "how to build"? I'd love to add them to my fantasy army.

Hi, if you check out this part of my Blog: http://maxxev.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/modhe...ood-gnomes.html

You'll see alot more angles on the Gnomes.

Mudders

maxxev - May 15, 2012 08:33 PM (GMT)

Or if you mean more gnomes, then there will be more, just not yet. Busy converting something else at the moment lol.

188 views, people were presumably interested enough to click through to my blog (I have 16 clicks showing from WIP on my blog stats) yet only 2 comments... *Sigh* :P

Thank you :).

I've tried to follow your blog... but I can't keep getting an error message telling me to try again later... :(.

I have finished (apart from the bases) the first models for my Fishmen warband.

Inspired by a thread over on ATT (Tau forum) MANY years ago.... I finally got around to making my own:

I present one MATO. As per usual, more angles and a link to the creator on my Blog.

Just so you know, I am resisting all temptation to start singing the TMNT theme.

Impressive work.

Cheers, but i'm sure you mean the TNAT theme right.... :P (if you don't know what i'm talking about, look up the coming film).

Michael Bay has destroyed enough of my childhood memories. I'm going to ignore that film like I did Transformers.

Got around to getting some paint on the dwarves, sorry about the picture quality, new camera in bright sunshine didn't work out too great, but there are better shots of the individual models on my Blog.

So I did a bit of work on the necromancer warband yesterday, finished basing them for undercoating this morning.

I really like how these came out, they were pretty quick conversions (only 1 day... lol) after I identified all the parts I needed.
I have had necron heads in my possession a VERY long time for these conversions, originally they were going to be used in my fringe wars project, but I knew as soon as I put cultists into my Undead warbands that those necron heads would come in handy!
Cultlists were included by the way so as to give the option of experience gaining henchmen to various warbands that were otherwise devoid of that.

Your conversions are really cool! I'm going to keep an eye on it for sure :)

Hellwolve - June 4, 2012 07:41 PM (GMT)
You're welcome :) I always like conversions that are a bit "kit-bash-y", as it's how I convert, as well, and it's inspiring seeing other people at work :)

maxxev - June 5, 2012 04:26 PM (GMT)
so I wasn't expecting to get these "done" today (I still ahven't decided on how to finish the bases), but I did quite well for me, painting all 4 cultists, finishing off the Bane and painting the Necromancer I had only undercoated previously!

As per usual, more picces on the blog.

Also trying to work out a scheme for the terrortoises, what do you think of this scheme? (e.g. dark red and bone, like the 'Nid scheme)

maxxev - June 8, 2012 11:57 AM (GMT)
This time a Terrortoise gets some paint!

I doubt anyone would have expected this paint job, right?

More angles and pre-paint on my blog as well as some waffling on....

A small updated for you guys containing a gnome.
As per usual more pictures on my blog http://maxxev.blogspot.co.uk/

Here is MR CUDDLES..... (Gnome Madcap (Mage)).

Quite happy with how he turned out despite the fact that he looks lke he's going to give someone a big hug....
2 more Gnomes in the works if I can scrape together the inspiration to finish them, particularily when it comes to weapons.

maxxev - June 11, 2012 06:18 PM (GMT)
Dryad heroine, more pics on my blog.

It might just be me, but I see that Heroine being more crystalline than tree-like.

maxxev - June 18, 2012 07:13 AM (GMT)
It's just you :P

I have posted up this photo before in other places so I appologise if you have already seen it, but I've not made much progress on anything new (not enough to bother with new photos) so I have posted up something old.

There are a couple more photos on my blog.

These guys are the Northlanders (main rivals to the southlanders).

Well i'm planning on trying to run the Vampire hunters campaign that the Wargame weaver blog put up.
So the campaign needs some NPCs to represent members of the town, here is the first of them (also would work fine as a soutlander): Captain Diedrich

Your captain guy also has cadian bits, talk about back to the future kit bashes but very appropriate still. Looking forward to seeing more of your work...

Well I needed a way to differentiate these guys from the other southlanders (on my blog) who use Catachan jungle fighter legs :).
