Eldritch Elf: 27 XI 18

Solstice time has come again, and that means the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society‘s annual gift exchange! This year we’ve begun calling it Eldritch Elf. I love this thing. Those who participate are given the name & address of another member of the Society to whom they must send a gift, etc etc. This exchange, though, is all Lovecraft fanatics.

Heavy Metal!

My new heavy bolter-toting tactical is ready for Kill Team. Well, he could use some varnish (which will ruin the rust effect, basically).

I have several more converted recruits eager to join their mates in Kill Team battle, and I’m converting a few more besides. Stay posted!

Almost there…

Just a few more details left to go on this guy. I was after a very dark skin color that preserved the eerie look of the unit. He’s actually purple and his hair is blue. Pleased.

I love all the wonderful bits & bobs on each of these Dark Angels. Every single piece of wargear is modeled on these guys. And lots more on top of that!

Fear the Unforgiven

I’m planning to take advantage of my father-in-law’s nice airbrush to lay down basecoats on a bunch of newly converted Dark Angels. Here are two of the WIP marines, far enough along to merit showing.

On the left is a bog standard tactical. I love turning tactical marines into cool looking figures. It takes some effort! I’m really happy with how he came out. I used some subtle but substantial conversions to get a dynamic pose I don’t think I’ve seen before.

On the right is a missile launcher-wielding gunner. I’m happy with the fact that I’ve managed to turn a crappy set of legs (from DA veterans) into what I hope will be a cool looking model.
