I still have about 15 CSM models left to paint (already primed) and I'm procrastinating.
I could do it, but I have a head ache and I'm not in the mood. If I'm not in the mood I do a shitty paint job.

>how is your day going /tg/?

Tired. Falling-asleep-in-the-chair tired. I should be painting right now but I don't feel up to it right now. Hopefully I'll perk up a bit later and get some work done.

I know how you mean, I did a term paper all today and then went and did 20 sets of 5 power cleans at the gym. And then when I checked the mail my slaanesh army was here.

Got a command squad today.

Gonna finish the first of several Tactical Squads for my Salamander army. Coming out well. First "real" army to actually look good since I made a little Kroot thing.

15 models is still about 10-15 hours.
I'm contemplating buying and adding some Obliterators. Are they worth it?

I'm thinking of starting up a Necron army too, but I'm probably waiting for the codex.

>> No.11626588

I use 'em all the time, but that is just me, spawn plasma cannons every turn and rip squads a new asshole.

>> No.11626600

Obliterators are very, very good. Rare to see a Chaos Army without a squad of three because of that fact.

Necrons? Not so much. Feel free to buy up core plastic units of the army - Warriors, Destroyers, the Monolith - safe in the knowledge it's very unlikely they get new kits, but they're pretty terrible on-table right now.

Almost finished with an Immolator turret. The most complex thing I've painted so far.

Thanks, I was very interested in them but didn't know about how well they preformed (expensive to field, cost $20 per model, etc.) I might pick some up.

Yeah, that's why I'm thinking of waiting till the codex comes out. I guess I will wait.

I put screaming ork heads on the ends of my bolters along with bits from spare CSM backpacks so that I could have more Noise marines with sound blaster-like weapons.
I think it looks alright, actually buying sound blasters would be expensive as fuck, and I can't really change it now, but I don't know if I should just use those guys as proxies.
I'd post pictures but I don't have any, just try to picture it (they're going to be painted boltgun metal, not green).
It's obvious they're ork heads on a gun, but it does look like part of the gun.

I'm at the stage where I'm thinking they may look a little silly.

>> No.11626717

So long as they look noticeably different from regular Bolters, it'll be fine. If nothing else, you can use them to cover you until you can afford to order a bunch of Sonic Blasters. Paint them up, snap off the old arms with the Counts-As Sonic Blasters, and glue the new ones in place.

Get a box of Terminators, some Green Stuff, some spare guns and go to down with conversions. Slightly cheaper than three metal Obliterators, and you've got the choice between converting up five Oblits, or three and bulking a Terminator squad up by two more models.

Eh, so long as you have the sculpting tool it shouldn't be too hard.

>> No.11627033

Go slow, don't use too much at a time. A lot of people - myself included - start off by using huge gobs of Green Stuff and overwhelming the figure with a mass of featureless putty. You want to add to the existing detail, not cover it up. Get a few things with thin, pointy tips - pins or needles - and something with a flat, round end in order to detail and smooth the putty respectively. GW's sculpting tool is actually kinda decent in that regard. Keep your tool damp, or covered with a dusting of talcum powder, to stop it from sticking to your tools.

Good luck - even after eight, nine years in the hobby, my Green stuff skills are pretty woeful. Hopefully you'll have more of a knack for it than I.

having previous sculpting classes helps but greenstuff is a different beast than clay, follow these instructions and you should do ok, I would practice on a model you don't much care about first though, as terminators are 10 bucks a pop (unless you use the assault on black reach ones)

so are you running a themed army or chaos undecided?

>> No.11627125

I did this, actually. Although I used a few things as well as ork heads, such as a few gaunt heads with their mouths GSed open and also a few zombie heads.

If you use green stuff to significantly smooth the decline from head to bolter it looks like you haven't just glued ork head onto bolters and they look like different guns entirely. Also, clip off any ears you use, as well as anything that sticks out at the sides (such as hair, in the case of zombies). Also if you do end up using something like nids or kroot (I didn't like my kroot version really, but it still works) remove the spines and cover up the nids' plates and what may remain of kroot spines.

Basically draw an imaginary line on each side of the heads that touches the corner of the mouth and is just about past the corner of the eye. Everything behind this line should be smoothed out and, using green stuff, make a steady decline from head to about halfway up the bolter.

Of course you can distort the line and in some cases I'd encourage it, just keep the eyes and mouth in it.

With ork heads this would mean smoothing out the back on the head. Personally I smooth down from the eyebrows.
That way they start to look more like guns with screaming faces on them rather than guns with ork heads glued to them.

Slaanesh based. Warlock purple with gold trim.
I bought the Assault on Dark Reach with a friend who wanted the orcs. I converted my space marines to chaos with plastic toothpicks to make 'em spiky.
I also bought myself a tactical squad and some emperor's children to go with it.
All in all, it's coming along well.

Thanks, I might go back and redo them when I get good at using green stuff.

alright in that case consider insted of taking a bunch of guns make one large sound cannon as the Oblit weapons and just add tentacles and such elsewhere on the models.

in a 600 point game versus some spess merhenes, my wyches tore his tactical squads to shreds, and their blasters made short work of his terminators. Their raider's dark lance mopped up a few as well. Wyches: so cash. (at least in 3rd ed.)
