WIP: Seer Council Jetbikes

More work on the jetbikes tonight.  I finished up the silver detailing and then went back and cleaned up the black.  I added the yellow to the top of the polls on the Warlocks’ bikes and then I gave all of the silver parts a heavy wash of Babab Black.  Next up is to highlight the silver in most areas with Mithril Silver, then I intend to attach the hoods and start working on the freehand there.  The final part will be going back and finishing up the details like the gems and the highlights.  Then it will be on to the riders.

Finished up the blue on all of the jetbikes and moved on to the silver.  Once that is complete, I will add the yellow to the tip of the banner pole and attach the hood.




WIP: Seer Council Modelled

I finished up the conversions needed for the Seer Council this morning.  Now to prime and paint.

The bodies of the Warlocks are Shining Spears, the spears are from High Elf Sea Guard warriors, and the Sword are from Wood Elf Glade Guards.

The Autarch:

WIP: Autarch Jetbike

The modeling work on the Autarch’s jetbike is nearing completion. In order to add on the fusion gun, I decided to hack off one side of the shuriken catapult and then mounted the fusion gun in its place. I then took the barrel I removed, and mounted it next to the original barrel to keep that twin-linked look.  The greenstuff needs to be cleaned up, but otherwise it worked pretty well.

Then for the Autarch himself, I removed his head, and used a Dire Avenger helmeted head as a replacement.  For the Mandiblasters, I cut down a nail and mounted it to the sides of the helmet with greenstuff.  Some more embellishment on the helmet is needed along with some cleanup, but it’s coming along nicely.


Finally, I added magnets into the bottom of all the jetbikes for their stands, and then added the poles to the back of the Warlock bikes.


Next thing to do is to assemble the Warlocks and the Farseer.  Then start converting the spears and swords that they will be wielding.  Then I can finally start on the painting.

WIP: Seer Council and Autarch

My new models arrived today, so I was able to dig in and start working on them tonight.  I managed to get the mold lines on pretty much everything cleaned up and the bike bodies assembled.  I will glue the hood of the bike on once the body is painted just to make things easier.

Next up is to start the custom work on the riders to give them the spears and swords instead of the lances.  I’m not sure if I’ll use the arms as they are and add embelishments with the greenstuff, or if I’ll try to us the lace arms and just cut off the lance to add the spear.  I also need to modify the Autarch’s bike to add the fusion gun, and then somehow change the Autarch to give him a helmet.

Plenty to do.




Seer Council: Ordered!

I’m excited. I just ordered the two boxes of Shining Spears, an Autarch on Jetbike and the spear and sword bits that I will be using to build up my Seer Council. It should arrive sometime next week, and then it will be a race to get everything finished in four weeks.
