Magnus the Red conversion by Rebecca

Hello! I'm Rebecca.

Last time I posted here, I showed you my Armies on Parade entry. You can see it here

This time I'm showing the largest model i made for the Vortapt IV campaing. The model is based on Magnus the red. I didn't really care for the Magnus model, but saw it without armour on a painting tutorial. I think it's really cool that they have sculpted a torso under the armour plates. This is what I wanted to focus on when I made the model. This might look like a crazy conversion, but I haven't really done much more than removing the armour and swapping his arms and head. 

I tried a new painting technique on my Magnus. The flesh is done mostly with washes and glazes over a corax white primer.

Nestorian Infestation: Giant Psychic Spore

Here is my newest creation for the Nestorian Infestation project. This is the same kind of miniature as the baby faced giant servitor I made last year (LINK). But this one has a mix of both mechanical parts and flesh. 

The Genestealer Cult uses a mix of Mechanicum and Genestealer technology to create their warmachines. This one is an unstable Psychic Spore hidden behind a metal shield made from the face of a metal statue. 

I based this model on the big spore and tentacles from the Tyranid drop pod kit. The face is a greenstuff copy of a cheap angel statue.

AoS28: Human Scuttlings for Silver Tower

I've completed another four Human Scuttlings for Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower. You can se the other ones I've made HERE

I really dislike the Grot Scuttlings you get in the Silver Tower box. These replacements have been made the same way as the others. I used Skaven bodies with new heads and arms to make them.

Revisiting The Beast

The Beast is the model I made for the Scandinavian painting competition The Fang in 2015. I have showed you this model before, but the old pictures are really bad. This model is a nightmare to photograph because of the pose and tentacles. But it's one of my favourite models, so it definitely deserved some photos with a better camera.

AoS28: Kairic Acolytes for Silver Tower

I've completed three of the Kairic Acolytes from Silver Tower. I really like these models, because they almost have realistic muscles (unlike the Bloodgusy). 

I wanted a few more for conversions and bought the new Warhammer Quest, where you get ten of these. I was really disappointed. The newer, multi part versions, look completely different. I think they're designed by someone else. Their abs look really wierd, and they have enormous nipples. I'm not a fan of the new mask designs either.

This one is my favourite of the Acolytes. The Griffhound head works perfectly on the Acolyte body. Sadly all the new Griffhounds are a lot bigger, and their heads don't fit any human bodies. 

Here you can see the Necromancer fighting the Acolytes. I really like red and turquoise, and didn't really think about the colour choices for the models until after I painted them. I now realise that both groups have the same colour scheme.
