What's up all.
Finished this base today at 2:25 in the morning!!! WOOT!!!
Very happy with it, so call it crap if you must (), but I had a blast paining it. Please do let me know what you think and how I could improve next time. I'm running low on paints right now (all i have are reds, greens, and greys) so keep that in mind when criticizing.
Take a look in the conversion form for more pics of the un-painted base and captain. Link: http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...sion-aobr.html

love it , seems well thought out and executed.
The base looks good with the only colors you had left. Maybe down the line later you could add some tamiya clear red to the blood stains to give it more of a blood effect.
I think it looks good too. To me it looks like the Genestealer has been flattened, in other words 41st millenium road-kill. I agree that there should be a little more blood. There is also a Genestealer skull that comes on the Genestealer sprue. You could beg some Tyranid players for a spare one to add to the base as extra dead Genestealer stuff.
I take it 'nids are your main opponent?
It's really good, are you planning on doing any more similar? Or is this a leader of some sort?
Great work! Seems to have come up a treat even with your paint restrictions.
Only the Captain to go, eh? I shall have to keep an eye out for him!
Wow guys, thanks for all the responses! I seriously didn't think I'd get such enthusiastic replies
I looked over the model again today, and I think I could do a much better job than what I've posted here. The equipment that I used to pull this paint job off is not what one would call "new", and I'm eager to try it again with some better paints and brushes.
Therefore, I'll be taking a trip to the hobby store sometime during the next week or two in hopes of turning out a better product (and I'm not even thinking about painting the SM Captain without better supplies). Honestly, the Captain was sort of a concept model for the new army I'm going to be building, and the base was just something I did when I was done with him (and cause I'd never done a scenic base before).
Now that people seem to like it, I'm excited about doing more sophisticated, better quality ones. I can't say when they'll get done, but rest assured that they'll pop up sometime the near future.
Now that I think about it, it'd be fun to do more than just 'Nids on the bases. In the new army I plan on having a "counts-as" Pedro Kantor model and 5 Honor Guard (including Chapter Champion). I'd love to here any ideas that you all have regarding what dead bad guys I could put on their bases. However, I'd also like to keep this a Tournament legal army, so am I allowed to but the guys I just mentioned on Termi-sized bases? They are wearing artificer armor if that helps...
