Well, I decided to step up and finally work on the Carnifex that I've been dreading for so long. I really hope I can do him well...
He is the first 'fex I built, before I really put thought into actual roles. This guy was made solely to be a huge points-sink, destroyer, and plain-ol-nightmare to my guardsmen. In May, I held a skirmish with my dad using this guy, three warriors, and 8 termies and hormies, versus a Demolisher, Command Squad, and a two-squad platoon of infantry.
In the end, there was this 'fex, and it was nightmarish, because my guardsmen couldn't even hurt it in hand-to-hand. It pretty much solo ate everything.
If I'd have set my dad's forces up by points instead of FOC slots (It was pretty even, regardless), The fight would have been alot more even...but that fex probably would still have marauded. Whatever the case, here he is, basecoated with chestnut ink. I'd done some work on the head back in May as well, so thats already painted...but I'm pretty much getting rid of all the prior work and redoing it. I hate it now.....and after I took this picture, I nailed him all over with a good matte varnish.
I'm just hoping the chestnut can hold up as I work on him, simply because of the changes since in my technique and base coat style.
Since I used both the tusked head and the regen head, there was alot of gap to be filled at the bottom of the neck. Back in may, I didn't use GS as much, and had no sculpting tools nor experience, so, I left it. Today, I threw a glob in there, and worked out a proper neck for him.
Roll over, fexy!
This last pic, I've painted his claws and carapace sections up in the Royal Blue, and I've also added some GS work to represent the "Bonded Exoskeleton/Reinforced Chitin." Its not much, but, I don't feel like going all the way around him to do that. I really should have extended the carapace further though, to properly represent 'extended carapace' but....meh. Its a Godifex. All I have to do is announce that its obscenely covered in points!
Finally, here's the list for this carnifex:
Adrenal Glands (WS/I)
Tail Weapon: Mace
Total Points: 244
Total Attacks on a Charge: D6+2+2
Is it an obscene use of points? Yeah.
Would I ever use it in a regular game? Probably not.
But it had to be done, you know? And besides..if I do use it, my enemy will likely be so busy freaking out about him that he wouldn't pay as much attention to the fodder coming ever so closer....
Oh, yes, by the way, any and all suggestions on improvements and fixes and stuff would be greatly appreciated, as always.
I dont really like the vibrant blue on that skin tone.
Was this Model just dipped?
Vampire Counts-4000 Points
Black Templars-2000 Points
No, the basecoat on him was applied a long time ago, only chestnut ink. I really didn't feel like scrubbing it off and redoing the coloration with a new method.
He was then hit in specific areas with a flesh wash, which was rubbed off in certain sections, and then there was some highlighting done on the carapace. The shinyness comes from the ink, though I've toned it down with another coat of matte and sealer, and I used gloss on the claws, carapace, mouth, blood/ooze and talons. The last picture, it comes out so blotchy because of the cruddy camera washing out alot of the color. I'll be taking some good quality photos with a camera I borrow from a friend, probably tomorrow.
But no. I don't dip.
