Warhammer 40K Chaos Lord conversion

Publié le 30 Mai 2008 par Hellric dans Chaos & Demons

I have made many conversions of daemon princes (if you lurk here sometimes, you should have noticed ;) ) but no chaos lord, surprisingly. I waited for the release of the new kit nut it didn't inspire me that much, so I decided to go for old stuff and make a super chaos lord, using parts of Abaddon (mainly), Archaon (head, blade, cape), as he's the Uber-chaos lord in Warhammer Battle, and Be'lakor for the wings, as I think they goes well with all these skulls and chains. As I didn't like the pikes with heads, I placed blades of a Dark Eldar Wytch on the top of the terminator armour.

I went for a dark paint scheme, a bit worn out, I didn't want him too shiny.

So here's Archa'laddon, Chosen of the Unified Chaos.

Haul from Japan !

Publié le 26 Mai 2008 par Hellric dans Mech & robots

I had a big surprise today, the postman had a huge box full of Japan goodness : big robots, strange sweets, presents from my friend Masayuki.

Here's a shot of the things that were in this week and last week packages :

A-Label Demonbane (already reviewed), Bandai Soul of Spec Black Sarena, Bandai Movie Realization Evangelion, Volks A3 Su-37UB Terminator... Reviews soon ! 

A-Label Madou Gokin Demonbane

Publié le 22 Mai 2008 par Hellric dans Mech & robots

Hallo people, now it's time for some Robot-goodness...
I'd like to share this one with you, as it's a quite unknown robot from a new toy company called A-Label.
I had first ordered it, then cancelled because it was too expensive, and finally got it again cheaper on YJA with the great help of my friend Masayuki, who did excellent hunting again.
Demonbane is an anime with robots and influenced by HP Lovecraft's works and among this the Cthulhu mythos : many names are taken from there and you can even see the Great Old One summoned in an episode.
I've been interested in this model because of its very original design and unusual proportions, mixing elements from Super Robot Wars, Gundam and Evangelion.
So this new toy is a high-end robot for collectors (Soul of Chogokin - like). It comes with a large array of weapons : a shurriken (open and closed), a dual blade, two revolvers, 4 pairs of hands. It has the wing option too. 
The diecast content is huge, the whole body, arms and legs are diecast, only the head and accessories are not ! The joints are strong so this is a very stable figure. It comes with a stand but I didn't need it actually. Paint application is simple but nearly perfect, and very small decals are really well done. The box is also top class.
You can find detail shots and other views here, herehereherehere and also there .
I was a bit reluctant to buy it, but it was a very good surprise, in the end this is one of my favourites, with the Megahouse Zwauth and the Max Factory Genesic Gaogaigar ! 

Tyranid Cthulhu Tyrant WIP

Publié le 21 Mai 2008 par Hellric dans Tyranids

It's been a veeeery long time since I posted anything reated to my beloved tyranids, but I think the inspiration is back, so here's my new project : a Hive Tyrant of Hivefleet Cthulhu, this was from the sight of those beasts that the fleet was named like the Great Old One on some forgotten legends. This is the fusion of two of my passions : tyranids and Lovecraft mythos.

The Parts :

(Full size)

It's based on a carnifex kit with elongated legs, balrog wings. The body is decorated with additionnal plates on the torso, spikes on the back and sides, and a round mouth on the belly. The head is a micetic spore sac from Forgeworld, cut at the base  and front, with triple eyes from the carnifex and home-made head plate, horns and side, and of course some mandibles.

The legs have been resculpted with additionnal plates and side details. Wings features gaunt claws and  large scything talons, and I've added some muscular texture to make them look more niddy.

The big backplate is from forgeworld, the tubes have been cut to be like cannons, the inner side and the ends are resculpted to look like some kind of bio-cannon. I'll add ammunition-sacs under the arms with tubes to feed those weapons.

Now I still have to do the tail, feet and arms, and add lots of tentacles coming from under the carapace and rib cage.

Stay tuned : following updates soon !

Monsterpocalypse, Cthulhu, huh Lords of Cthul, is rising !

Publié le 13 Mai 2008 par Hellric dans Cthulhu

We know a bit more about the Lovecraft things I had shown here and who are part of the new Monsterpocalypse game from Privateer Press. Now the colour pictures are released, and these monsters are part of a faction called "Lords of Cthul", summoned from another dimension by insane worshippers... I've seen this somewhere, but I wonder where  ;) ?
I'm more and more interested in this game mixing big monsters from outer space, super robots and Cthulhu :)
Still no information about prices. Release is expected for fall 2008, as a collectible miniatures game.

Troll Forged Miniatures - Slug Demon

Publié le 5 Mai 2008 par Hellric dans Chaos & Demons

Hi there ! Now I'd like to show you my second commission for my friend Hivetrygon : a disgusting Slug Demon, a tentacled horror with a Lovecraft touch that could also join Nurgle armies.
I went for a natural but sick colour for the skin, with red tentacles to stand out from the rest. Back carapace was as natural as possible.
A high quality, heavily detailed resin figure high that you can get from 
Troll Forged Miniatures.

As usual, more pictures are in the gallery : 
1234, 5

Watch out, I have a claw de:on and an alien coming from the same company, plus a Chaos Lord of my own composition :)

Monsterpocalypse, new monsters sighted !

Publié le 2 Mai 2008 par Hellric dans Miniatures news

Privateer Press is slowly unveiling models for their upcoming Kaiju table game Monsterpocalypse. This time a new kind of Cthulhu (the same as previous shown but this one has legs), a kind of Cthulhu spawn, and a Tripod from War of the Worlds. This games is more and more appealing to me as it features big robots, giant monsters, aliens, and ... of course, Cthulhu :oE

Here are the pics :
