Tyranid, the return of the Screamer Killer Carnifex

Publié le 24 Avril 2009 par Hellric dans Tyranids

Hi folks !

Since 2003, I'm member of an excellent forum : Warpshadow. It's a community with an excellent atmosphere, focused on Tyranids; I learned a lot there, I met the best artists  there too (Hivetrygon, M_Pink, Hydra, Terrofex, Moloch, HF Providence, Wormwood, Bocks, and many others, cheers guys ;) ) ; I could talk with people I admire and that inspired me to paint and convert miniatures.

And now, this community, driven by mastermind M_Pink, is working together - as one mind in perfect Tyranid way - to make a huge diorama for Toronto Games Day 2009. The theme is the invasion of Tyran, the first massive encounter with tyranids for the Imperium. For this project, M_Pink has redone a wonderful version of the original Screamer Killer Carnifex (with talons from Bocks), more than twice the size of the original model from Jes Goodwin. And I have the honor and perillous mission to paint this beast in Behemoth scheme.

Expect the fully painted model in 2-3 weeks.

To wait until there, here's the unpainted mini for your eyes only, enjoy !


Mortarion, Primarch of the Death Guard, Daemon Prince of Nurgle

Publié le 8 Avril 2009 par Hellric dans Chaos & Demons

My collection of the 4 Daemon Primarch of the 4 Chaos Powers is now complete.
I commissioned the talented Grytz to make the Death Guard Primarch for me, he did it exactly as I wished, so I want to share this exclusive mini with you all.
I still have to paint it of course and I'll show you the result asap.


VOLKS A3 Linebarrel 1/144

Publié le 7 Avril 2009 par Hellric dans Mech & robots

And we go on with another PVC figure from VOLKS' successful (in Japan at least) A3 series. This time it's from Linebarrel of Iron anime, no more MUV-LUV.
It's as usual a quality release from Volks, a 14 cm figure in PVC with crisp paint.
As accessories, you only get 2empty hands and hands bearing the katanas.

At the moment the serie counts 4 models, all are the same mecha, with wings deployed or not, and with various paint schemes. So only 1 of them for me was enough, as I don't need to collect everything.
I like the design of this Linebarrel, because it's a bit different and unusual with the lack of "feet", it certainly has a strong visual identity.

Let's zoom a bit...

Hello my friends,

I want to apologize for the lack of updates, I wasn't very active in the collecting last months, but I have to show you this new baby of the very interesting A3 serie from Volks. It's #19 of the collection, but I don't get them all, not willing to pay 4-5 times 6800 yens to get same models of different colours... 
Anyway, here are the pics of the mecha, very inspired by the US Air Force F-22A Raptor, with sharp edges and triangles to avoid radar reflections.
As the same figures of the serie, it's 16 cm high, contains only PVC/ABS, is nicely painted and comes with a few accessories : 2 guns, 2 empty hands and rear weapon supports.
