[ERROR] No.17310428 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

Season's Greetings everyone-
Oh boy, I was almost afraid I might not make it this year.
Still, even with all the setbacks and delays, I'm here now so for a fourth year running, let's do this thing.

Last year when I made the Gingerperor (more on him coming up) we wondered how I might upscale from the biggest 40k model out there. Well I went with trying a 1:1 scale piece instead. It didn't quite come out as well as I had hoped, but it was rather rushed due to time constraints (more on those later as well).
So, this year, a slightly derpy 1:1 Chainsword.

-Xmas Mini 2011
-Live baking
-Possibly live modeling
-Excuses galore
-Jolly xmas chatting

>> No.17310445

I must admit I kinda botched my delivery on the xmas mini. This year the winning candidate was a fusion of several others, culminating in a diorama featuring Trazyn, Blood Ravens, Doomrider, the Sleighnids and some Guardsmen.
Sadly, I only had time to make half of it in time for this thread.
I picked the half that had the most votes (by a margin of 38 or so) - Trazyn steals the Blood Ravens' stolen gifts.

Do not worry - the Doomrider and Sleighnids half will be made either during this thread (if you so wish) or for New Year.

>> No.17310446

Dude its the 23rd. Don't you think this is a bit early?

>> No.17310451

Your name. So long.
>1:1 Chainsword
It's going to break like Gingerperor isn't it.
Oh god my side. Does stealing what is stolen consider stealing or recovering?

>> No.17310453

So... could you eat that chainsword?

>> No.17310459

The reason I was so short on time is all because of our old friend the Gingerperor. He did not really like sitting around for a year and collapsed rather badly, forcing me to spend a good amount of time fixing him back up. However I am pleased to report that he is now back in full working order and will be stored more appropriately in the future.

>> No.17310473

I always have this thread on the 23rd. I'm too busy on the 24th and christmas is kinda over for me by the 25th.
Yes, yes it is, I'm afraid.
As for Trazyn, I'm sure he just sees it as collecting.
I guess I could but I don't really want to. It feels a bit wasteful.

>> No.17310475


>> No.17310496

So yeah, the main event of this thread will be either me making the other xmas mini, or me baking something. Possibly that Leman Russ that was suggested last year.
I leave it up to you lads to decide, you seemed to have fun doing so last night.
Shall we call it at the first to get ten votes, or?

Can someone confirm if the Gingerperor was indeed featured in some US/AUS/other issue of WD?

>> No.17310699

Awesome. I wasn't aware that you had a website or a deviant art page.

>Make one, play some Farmville, try to get extra ideas and report back
He was a damn chill boss though. Second best I've ever had.

The fortress Vox Prima had been under siege by the greenskins for over eight weeks. Supplies were low, and ammunition was running out. No drops had made it past the ork guns.
On the third day of the nineth week, Supply Convoy Secundus Delta arrived. Only the lead Valkyrie made it to base. The pilot, Nicolaus Vanrist, died on impact. He had flown his craft over fifty miles of Ork infester terrain. The Valkyrie was missing all communications and navigation equipment, as well as the cockpit canopy. Copilot Archivan Piet was never recovered. The supplies were intact, and contained enough ammo and fuel to mount a small but critical counter attack against the Ork hordes to reclaim a communications array.
At the start of the elevent week, the Salamanders made planetfall. Within ten days, the Orks were no more.
Saint Nicolaus is now followed on many neighboring worlds, and it is commonly believed he watches over those in dire need, as well as those risking their lives to help others.

That's it. I'm sick of all this "Basic Dwarven Skill" bullshit that's going on in /tg/ right now. Blacksmiths deserve much better than that. Much, much better than that.
I should know what I'm talking about. I myself commissioned a genuine blacksmith in America for $20,000 (that's about $20,000) and have been practicing with him for almost 2 years now. I can even make complex smithing jokes with my blacksmith.
Smith masters spend years working on a single apprentance and teach it up to a million times to produce the finest smiths known to mankind.
Blacksmiths are thrice as funny as fa/tg/uys and thrice as smart for that matter too. Anything a fa/tg/uy can make a joke at, a blacksmith can make a joke about it better. I'm pretty sure a Blacksmith could easily make full plate with a simple hammer strike.
Ever wonder why medieval /tg/ never bothered conquering smiths? That's right, they were too scared to fight the disciplined smiths and their anvils of destruction. Even in World War II, American soldiers targeted the men with the anvils first because their smithing power was feared and respected.
So what am I saying? Blacksmiths are simply the best smiths that the world has ever seen, and thus, require better jokes on /tg/. Here are the jokes I propose for smiths:

Two metals walk into a bar, they make an alloy!

Now that seems a lot more representative of the joking power of blacksmiths in real life, don't you think?
tl;dr = Smiths need to have better jokes on /tg/, see my new joke book.

I found it pretty interesting, Paint Guy, that you basically kept adding and adding different colors to your base coat for highlights and shading (I'm thinking particularly of the Daemonette). I've always been one to just use basic, unmixed, citadel paints. Seeing models painted using other brands or blended colors look good to me just because it's something different from the same few colors I see all the time (chaos black, boltgun metal, snakebite leather, skull white, etc.). I'm a good painter, but I think I'm going to get myself a palette and work outside of my comfort level after seeing that.

If you can deal, it's not really a migraine. I've had two migraines in my entire life. the first one was when I was about 10, 11 years old; I remember laying there as I described with the only light in my room a flashlight with a towel over it. The other time I was seventeen, and wound up in a bed in the nurse's office with the door shut. Both times, as a child and as a mostly-grown man, I wound up curled up and whimpering at the pain.

If you can "Deal with it", it isn't a fucking migraine, it's just a headache.

But how am I going to do my Slaanesh Berzerkers? Yes, you read that right. The only reason they - all one of them so far - exist is so I can tell who belongs to what squad if multiple units are involved in a single combat. I already have a squad of 8 "right out of the box" berzerkers, and a squad that are kitbashed from all over the place but with 'zerker shoulder pads who I'm rather proud of. I figure some Slaaneshi dudes who are thrilled by running at the enemy and chopping them up is enough justification for purple and silver ones.

>Somehow my first mental image of slaaneshii berserkers was dudes with lots of combat drug injectors and really elegant curved sword. Something almost Dark Eldary.

I do tend to use the blades from Dark Elf Corsairs as power swords for Chaos, so their Champion will absolutely get one. Capes and tabards - especially of the Dark Eldar style flayed skin variety - are probably going to be a regular feature. And if they were easier to get tons of, I'd use Apothecary torsos to indicate a steady supply of combat drugs/stims.
