Talos Pain Dragon WIP: part 2

Got the next layer painted on the skin and scales. I am really looking forward to getting this guy on the table top. Anyone know if Talos are any good? haha

Talos Pain Dragon WIP

Work in progress on my counts as Exodite Talos. Still two more layers for the skin, scales, and bone... before starting on the rider.

Unpainted Progress

It is raining here in central Texas which has unfortunately kept me from priming my Talos Pain Dragon. Instead here are some of the counts as Wracks that will be in my Exodite army. Toughness 4 and FNP might be a stretch for their Dragon Cloaks but the Corsairs at least look the part of Exodite warriors on foot.

Pirates with lasguns will play the part of the Warriors and Witches in my army. I've combined CW Guardian, DE Warrior, DE Witch and High Elf kits to create a non uniform look for the Pirates.

Talos Pain Dragon

My girlfriend surprised me today with a late Christmas present in the mail; a Carnosaur! Well it was a Carnosaur until it got folded into my Exodite army as a counts as Talos. I used the old Metal High Elf Dragon rider legs, a Dark Elf Coldone Knight torso, a couple random Eldar arms and a DE Witch head for the rider. The weapon and mounting are bitz from an Eldar Viper. Still work in progress at the moment with lots of mold lines to putty over. 

It is raining here in Texas so I hope to have it ready to be sprayed by the time it dries up because I'd really like to get this guy painted up ASAP!

Thoughts about the viability of a giant lizard as a Talos would be appreciated...

Razorwing Flock

Normally I do not like mixing non GW models into my army but after scouring the Cittadel miniature range I could not find any suitable swarms that would match my Exodite themed Beastmaster unit. I settled on Reaper: Bat Swarms and painted them to match my other Dragons. 

Bad lighting on the photo but you can see that they are supposed to match.

New Year's Resolution

Well it is the time of the year that everyone is making their resolutions to stop smoking and start exorcising. As a raging Warhammer nerd my resolutions will all be miniature painting related.

paint 1500points of my new Dark Eldar army.
~this should be fun, it has been a long time since I have started an army from scratch. I kept the goal low because I still have lots of other half finished projects I'd like to see finished this year too.

paint a further 1000points of Mantis Warriors and finally put decals on all the infantry and tanks. DONT BUY ANYTHING NEW!
~I have far more than 1000points of Space Marines unpainted. This goal is mostly to motivate me to finally  paint all the Space Hulk Terminators and make all the models I do have painted look legit with the decals FerroMike made for me off the BolterandChainsword site.

paint 1000points of Plague Marines.
~I sold off 40 hand sculpted Plague Marines that I made back in 2003 for a GT in Dallas to buy the beginnings of my Dark Eldar army. The Nurgle pretty much never saw table top play unless it was an Apocalypse game or a team tournament with Aventine. I would really like to remake a small force in time for the BoLS Con team tournament this summer.

If I can get this much completed before the next year it will be by far my most productive year of warhammer hobbying that I have ever had. I am generally a very slow painter so I hope this motivates me to pick up the brush with greater speed.
