Cthulhu / Nurgle spawn based on Maggoth Lord, finished

Publié le 3 Janvier 2015 par Hellric dans Chaos & Demons, Cthulhu

And there you go with the finished model, I told you it wouldn't be long. I'm happy as it looks exactly liked I planned. A nice companion for the big Glottkin Daemon :)

Now I'm going to hunt parts and ideas for the next models (River Troll Cthulhu and then back to tyranids !)

I wish you all a very creative and inspiring 2015 !

New project, Cthulhu star / Chaos Spawn using Maggoth Lord kit

Publié le 28 Décembre 2014 par Hellric dans Cthulhu, Chaos & Demons

New project, Cthulhu star / Chaos Spawn using Maggoth Lord kit

As I told you earlier, I had another conversion in mind with the new Nurgle releases for Warhammer : this time I'd use the Maggoth Lord's mount, that would make a great Cthulhu-inspired chaos spawn, so it can also be used as Star Spawn of the Great Old One.

I've chosen the model with a mouth on the belly and the poison spitting head for the 2 venom glands it has; then I removed the rider, covering the saddle with Green Stuff, and I copied the texture of the beast, with bubbons. I added a tail from a manticore, wings from a Jabberslythe, and the tentacle head from Reaper mini's Kraken. Bestial and misshapen look, perfect for a spawn, isn't it ?

Now it's ready to be painted, so stay tuned for this, it shouldn't be long...

A few words about the coming months : I'll show my take on the GW chaos spawn kit soon, then I have ideas for 2 more Cthulhu models, using a river troll and also the upcoming model from Studios McVey's 7 Sins (Pride !). Expect also some tyranid stuff with a mix of Toxicrene and Haruspex, plus a revamped 2014 edition of my first Hive Queen... also my 2 kick starters : Cthulhu Wars minis should arrive, followed by Creature Caster's demons. OMG so much work, I'm crazy !!!

GW Glottkin as Cthulhu / Nurgle Daemon Prince, finished !

Publié le 23 Décembre 2014 par Hellric dans Cthulhu, Chaos & Demons

It's over ! After 2 weeks of intensive painting, my baby's ready, and I dare to say : it rocks !! :)

There is an insane amount of details on this miniature : horns, claws, worms, skulls, eyes, bubons everywhere, but it was really fun to paint, using the Citadel shades.

For your information, the model is 20 cm high and has an impressive 27 cm wingspan.

I'm very happy of how the model looks , the conversion really works for me. Too bad my pictures don't do it justice.

Anyway I hope you'll enjoy this one as much as I do, and also that it might inspire you some cool conversions : this kit has a huge potential !

Next one will be another Nurgle/Cthulhu conversion, this time using Maggoth Lord kit.

Nurgle Daemon Prince Cthulhu conversion WIP

Publié le 30 Novembre 2014 par Hellric dans Chaos & Demons, Cthulhu

I've been hard at work these days, and... the Nurgle glottkin-based Daemon Prince is now ready for the paint.

Wings are not glued so it'll be easier for the painting, right arms is also the tentacled one, as I wanted more symmetry. For the same reason I added 2 tentacles on the right of the belly. This model is also a nightmare for the gap filling :o Those GW plastic kit are not perfect ! this tentacle arm was not so easy to add because of how the kit is made, I also positioned the end of this tentacle to have a better pose.

On the textures, there are added pustules, Nurgle runes, chaos rune, even kind of souls trapped in it !

I'm very happy of the result, it has awesome presence on the table. Can't wait to have it painted but it'll be hard work as there's so much detail to do !

Creature Caster : new brand, amazing Daemons coming !

Publié le 25 Janvier 2014 par Hellric dans Chaos & Demons

Hey guys, I have to share this with you :  I was browsing Pinterest looking for Demons or Cthulhu pictures, and I found a picture of an awesome mini. After a small inquiry I found out it was from a new company called "Creature Caster". I went on their website, and, hell, my mind was blown away !

They are going to release a fantastic serie of greater demons, inspired from TSR classical demons, but which obviously be compatible with Warhammer Battle or 40K.

The models are designed on computer and the master models printed in 3D, but the released models are to be in resin. 

By the way the man behind this company is not unknown, it's Jeremy from Ultraforge, but he's clearly reached a new level...

Looks like I'll have a lot of work later this year ;)

check some :

Check their website for more : www.creaturecaster.com and if you are convinced, see ya on the Kickstarter starting on february 1st. I'll back it for sure, yeah baby !!!

Diablo 3 statue, The Prime Evil

Publié le 16 Décembre 2013 par Hellric dans Chaos & Demons

Hey guys, 

Long time no post, but here I am back with another masterpiece of my ever-expanding collection : the almighty Diablo coming as a big, premium statue from Sideshow. This is a representation of the Prime Evil version of the Final boss of Diablo 3, the hack'n slash hit from Blizzard.

As a big Diablo fan, I played all 3 versions since 1997, so to me, getting this statue is like finding my Holy Grail.

High quality resin, great painting, the spiky bits are attached by magnets, classy. Really impressive work, was worth the wait (one year since I preordered this baby :) ).

I know there's been a lot of rumble about the design of this 3rd version of Diablo, being more female-like, etc, but personnaly I think this is the best version and I enjoy it a lot :)

New Project : Chaos Carnabrute "Cthulhu" Daemon

Publié le 14 Février 2013 par Hellric dans Chaos & Demons

My new Hive Queen is just done so I'm keeping the momentum and I want to show here my new project.

As soon as I saw the new Carnabrute kit from GW, I thought about its conversion potential. I love both versions so I decided to mix them. The Carnabrute head is amazing with its many eyes and horns, but how could I resist to add those tentacles ?

So I came with a kind of Cthulean head. Since a long time I wanted to use the wings of the new manticore kit. So I decided to add them to the model, these will add a grotesque demonic touch to the model ...

And once again, we end with a kind of monster who could be viewed as a representation of the Great Old One himself.

So... here's the monster :

Chaos

And two more : here and here

Now... let's think about a paint scheme... ideas are welcome since people didn't seem to like te latest hive queen scheme...

New GW stuff : Slaughterbrute and Chaos Warriors

Publié le 26 Janvier 2013 par Hellric dans Chaos & Demons

They never stop @ Games Workshop... Now they are redoing the Chaos Warriors army for Warhammer Fantasy Battle.

New heroes and troops, of course, but as you know me, I only like to biggest bad ones. And they brought something fresh this time : the Slaughterbrute / Mutalithe plastic kit. This is a mix of a giant Chaos Spawn and a Daemon.

Here's the Slaughterbrute version (Khorne ?!)

GW Chaos Slaughterbrute

 

 

And the Mutalithe version (Tzeentch ?!)

 

GW Chaos Slaughterbrute

 

So as soon as I saw these, ideas began to pop in my head... and I decided to make my own version, I'll use both version to make my own, adding wings and my own little touch... Ordered the whole thing and in a week I should get them... I don't want to tell much more about my ideas now but stay tuned... Expect us ! ;)

Amazing Daemon miniature kit : Nine Skies Monster - Barretta

Publié le 6 Janvier 2013 par Hellric dans Chaos & Demons

Now I'd like to show you one of the most amazing Daemon miniature ever. It's a resin kit, sculpted by a very, very talented Taiwanese artist called PK King.

It seems it's inspired by old Chinese legend, but I don't know exactly, anyway this is an amazing all-purpose demon for all games. Beware, it's really huge, about the size of a Titan from Forgeworld, even bigger than FW's Bloodthirster !

This is my biggest project for 2013, I hope I find time and motivation to do it.

Miniature news : Diablo 3 statue, from Sideshow

Publié le 2 Janvier 2013 par Hellric dans Chaos & Demons

I've been a Diablo Player since the first edition of the game, back in 1997, and this game is one of my all-time favorites. Last year Blizzard gave us a third iteration of the game, and since I saw the final monster, Diablo as the Prime Evil rising for the corrupted body of the poor sweet Leah, I've been dreaming about getting a miniature of this monster.


I know many people are not happy with the design, considering it as being too "female" but personally I find it exquisite, awesome in every meaning of the word !


First I was expecting an action figure, but then I saw that Sideshow Collectibles, famous for their high end statues, were doing it. As usual, Sideshow is giving it all the nasty details, and it's huge : more than 50 cm high and 30 cm wide, ... and the price is hellish too !

 

Anyway... Wow, definitely need to find space for this baby, will be great besides my SOTA Cthulhu ;)
