Welcome to Librarium Online!
Because of all the random junk in this thread, I made links to posts containing things I thought were probably a little more interesting than cardboard mock ups and unfinished projects.
Plague marines (Return of OMGITS)
Harker (Return of OMGITS)
Skaven warlord and engineer (Return of OMGITS)
Renegade veterans finished (Return of OMGITS)
Guardsmen take shape (Return of OMGITS)
The russ finished (Return of OMGITS)
Jungle terrain (Return of OMGITS)
The start of the chapel (Return of OMGITS)
I've been out of action for quite some time because of a lack of workable camera. And although I have a temporary replacement, its not the best but anyway here's what I've been up to.
The first off is my daemon prince, hes been in a WIP stage for what seems like forever and only now do I see how grossly oversized he is.
This fella here was supposed to be a present but now I guess it's going to a worthy cause.
A very rough idea for a Tervigon I am attempting too.
I took the carnifex apart I had and glued the chest back together at about a 45degree angle to give it more thickness and spread out the back a lot more.
The next 2 are buildings I've made from cardboard as mock-ups for a table I plan to get to work on sooner or later.
This is what I guess I could only describe as a Seed-plant. I want to have the big back room full of all kind of servitor arms and bits and pieces to dismantle marines or maybe a station where they go through some ritual blessings. (I'm not that big on fluff info so if anyone has a better idea, let me hear it!)
This one is a big temple that I was inspired from one of the opening chapters of 'The Dark Apostle' but their chapel was inside a cruiser, still. It was the inspiration none-the-less.
This was a great idea to begin with but kind of let me down after the painting (which is in no-way finished) and such so I may go still add some things and also sand it back to a more square shape in areas.
The first one was an idea I took from a piece of art in the 4th edition space marine codex. I don't know what it is exactly but I think it's still very cool. Unsure of a base or anything I could add.
The second is a bunch of simple markers I figured I would find uses for since I have so many spare bolters and that kind of junk.
The last is a piece I made for a friend of mine. I originally wanted it bigger but that never came to fruition, perhaps I may still increase the size but that would be down the track.
And my favourites:
These are the start of my traitor guard army. I have a few more models but there isn't much converting on them yet, I intend to go a long way with these in terms of modeling but I've been swamped with a bunch of other projects for either myself or friends.
And the piece de resistance(is that even the right phrase?)
My model for Colonel 'Iron Hands' Straken:
I went with adding as much as I could but I think he could still use a gas mask and pipes here and there, the shotgun I don't know exactly what to do as there is little room but I'm considering a sort of sling for him or making the plasma pistol and shotgun interchangeable. But haven't thought that far ahead
So hopefully this is the beginning of a very long road for me and I hope to be making more and more frequent trips with updates!

While I love the look of everything here, I have to say your Tervigon is looking bleedin' awesome! Can't wait to see more of that. =D
SOOOOO Many models to work on. I am overwhelmed just looking at it !!!
5000 pts of WoC, 5000 pts of Orcs and now 3000 pts of Ogres...What was I thinking ????
The tervigon has gained some weight but I'm not happy with where its ending up, I'm half considering taking the plates off and the gut stuff and re doing it all into a nicer shape.
My ork battlewagon and 1/2 so far, but have no clear ideas for the 2nd one at the moment.
And just some eggs for the tervigon or maybe objective markers.
Not a lot to show but at least its progress none-the-less.
I redid the tervigon up to this stage
I thought it looked a little better and gave me more room to work plus I wouldnt use as much putty building up the armour plates if I cover them in scraps of plasticard first.
Another mock up for a building, I'm running low on cardboard unfortunately as I'd like to make a few more like this or maybe much bigger ones.
And these guys have had a tiny bit of work done, I gave random guys in the squads kneepads and elbowpads but the camera really doesn't pick up fine stuff that much. I put a bloodletter head on the chest but I think I might need to try it again and shave more of the head off. Perhaps straken needs a collar or something?
This was in my last post but I added some straws to it for a bit more of a 3d feel and I think it comes together a lot better now.
The rest are just random shaped building chunks that I've made for mock ups. I intend to get started on the proper attempts in a couple of weeks if I'm lucky.
that's it, nothing else to really say.
So uh... Long story short... My dog ate and chewed up all the mock-ups I made last I was on but I made some newer ones that hopefully will fit the bill a little better.
Just a simple but large sized building, not sure if I want to make another section on it yet.
These turn into...
A simple landing pad-type thing.
And these are crashed raiders for a mate, need some dark eldar bodies to make some gore bits and pieces but its a start.
Thats the end of that chapter.
So this is what I've been upto lately. Its been too long and I've been swamped with real life.
Some dark eldar giblets I've sculpted, still working on it as its a whole new process to work that small but I think they came out alright.
The tervigon has some vents now, I don't know what they do but they are there.
Here is Straken again, with 3 of the sargaents I hope to use for my army, still very much WIP.
And these happy fellows are my conversions for Chenkov and Sargaent Kell, the whip I want to have looking like its electrified, as I want to have him pushing forward a squad of "slave" guardsmen.
And my new favourite model, Guardsmen Marbo. The idea for the grenade-speargun came from just needing a weapon that was powerful and not as boring some sort of suped-up laspistol plus its relatively silent which suits him.
I have other guardsmen in progress but I'm not happy enough to show them off just yet, I hope to get more work done on these guys so far and more gibs and bits for the crashed dark eldar and of course the magical tervigon so hopefully I'll be back sooner than later!
Grenade speargun = genius!
The tervigon is looking good.. with the vents and the bulbousness.. but needs more vajayjay-like openings disgorging termagants. Tyranids aren't creepy enough as it is.. I reckon something like that would redress the balance nicely.
The guy with the bionic arm with stuff coming out look excellent! plasticard is your friend!
It will be good when you flesh out those cardboard buildings.. the dome one there looks a little bit like the Hiroshima Dome.
Eldar ~7k, Orks ~11k, Tyranids ~1k5, Space Wolves ~1k
Oh the gross tyranid bits are coming! just relax sir. I've just been laying down a base for the greenstuff as nothing really sticks to the white foam that well I've noticed.
I also hope to get around to those buildings too, but modeling comes first cos its less mess
