9/11/14: Finished: Nagash, Supreme Lord of the Undead

Howdy folks!

I was lucky enough to get a chance to work on the new Nagash model for a client! Finished him up a couple days ago, I'm a touch behind with posting pictures unfortunately! Speaking of which...


Nagash in all his glory! This model is huge, standing several inches taller than a Knight Titan! The base was done with some extra GW Zombie pieces, a gate from the Garden of Morr kit, and autumn leaves from Secret Weapon Miniatures. 


The client allowed for some creative freedom while still sticking mostly to the official scheme. I wanted both shoulderpads to be bone, while I opted for a brighter green for the ethereal spirits. 



He's incredibly imposing, and its best to leave him in pieces while painting. I did the robes first, then worked into Nagash himself. The head and book was done separate from that to allow work on his torso and arm armor. 


The gate looks so tiny behind him!


Don't mess with the biggest and baddest lich in the Warhammer World!

I can't wait to work on another in the future, I think a warm scheme with reds and oranges would look incredible on a model like this! 

Its starting to look like fall here in Colorado, so the rain (and snow?!) is starting to come. Shouldn't cause too many problems, but I've got a trio of Knight titans coming that need some primer! Lots of fun projects coming ahead, lets hope the weather doesn't get in the way!

9/6/14: Finished: Volcanic Themed Necron Army

Howdy folks!

Been chugging away on commissions and projects, and this time, we've got a huge Necron army to show off! Over 2500 points of Necron goodness, the project consisted of:


  • Trazyn the Infinite
  • Necron Lord/Overlord with Warscythe and Resurrection Orb
  • 40 Necron Warriors
  • 20 Lychguard; 10 with Warscythes, 10 with Hyperphase Sword/Dispersion Shield
  • 10 Immortals
  • 2 Ghost Arks
  • 3 Canoptek Spyders
  • 6 Canoptek Wraiths
  • 12 Canoptek Scarab Swarms
  • C'Tan Shard
  • Command/Annihilation Barge
Enough talk though, lets show these bad boys off!


Trazyn the Infinite; my favorite model in the Necron range!


Can't go wrong with a stock Lord/Overlord either!



Two blocks of 20 Necron Warriors! Good luck getting them off the tabletop!



20 Lychguard, had a lot of fun doing both variants!


10 Immortals!



Two Ghost Arks, ready to ferry their Warrior cargo to war!



Three Canoptek Spyders; had a lot of fun with these models, and added some variety by mixing pieces with the Wraith kit!


Speaking of Wraiths! The group of 3 Wraiths; again, heads mixed with the Spyders to allow for extra variation and menace!



And the other three Wraiths! Lots of fun with these models, especially the back carapace!



You can't have Spyders without Scarabs! 


The spyders are already working away!


And the Barge! The Gun mount and the plinth are interchangable to allow for both variants! 



Go go Necron Lord!

I had a lot of fun with this army, and the client is adding more to it next month, so this isn't the last you'll see of this army! Next up are more Imperial Knights, lots of Horus Heresy models, more Necrons, and, last but not least, everyone's favorite lord of the undead....


Stay tuned!

8/25/14: Finished: For Sale Grey Knights Army

Howdy folks!

Its been quite a bit since I posted anything over here! Its not because I haven't been busy, I've just been neglecting the blog! Bad Smells Like Wargaming! Bad!

This time though, I took a little time to paint up an army I've had sitting in boxes for a couple of years. I got the better part of a Grey Knights army from my buddy Magilla Gurilla when he was getting out of 40k. With grand plans and ideas...they sat on the shelf...and sat...then moved to a box...then sat some more. But no longer! This army consists of:


  • Kaldor Draigo
  • Castellan Crowe
  • Brotherhood Champion
  • Grey Knights Librarian in Terminator Armor
  • Nemesis Dreadknight with Greatsword and Heavy Psycannon.
  • One 5 man Purifier Squad with two halberds, a Daemonhammer, and two Psycannons.
  • One 5 man Purgation Squad with a halberd and 4 incinerators. 
  • Two 5 man Strike Squads with three halberds, 1 Daemonhammer, and a Psycannon.
  • 1 Razorback, perfect for the Purifiers and Crowe (Who is finally an IC!)
Enough chatter though, pictures!



The entire army in all its glory! Sorry for the washout on the Dreadknight, couldn't use the lightbox on that shot!


Brotherhood Champion, done using the Emperor's Champion model with some added bits. Perfect for both small and large point games!



Castellan Crowe, such a beautiful model to work on!



The big daddy himself, Lord Kaldor Draigo! This is the old pewter one too, so no worries on Finecast issues!


Both Crowe and Draigo have their names painted on the back of their cloaks!


The Librarian. Changed his hand from the pistol to a psychic-casting one from the Terminators box.


The Nemesis Dreadknight! Love this model, he's now a beast and perfect for ending your opponent's flying circus of Daemons!



Can't go wrong with a giant sword of death!


First five Terminators/Paladins. The squad is entirely tricked out so Draigo and the Librarian can join with them in Daemonic destruction!


Lots of fun with the faces!



And the other five paladins!


The Banner can represent the Brotherhood Banner or the new relic banner in the book!


Purgation Squad, complete with incinerators galore! They're painted to match the Strike Squads too, so you can swap out Psycannons for Incinerators as your heart pleases!


Every sergeant has freehanding of some kind on their back banner!


Also included are two psilencers, in case you'd prefer to swap them into any of the squads!


Purifiers in all their glory! These guys are designed to join Crowe in the Razorback, and their white gear and white back banner help distinguish them from your Strike Squads.



Speaking of their Razorback! The turret still moves up, down, and rotates, while the Storm Bolter is in place.





Strike Squad #1!



And Strike Squad #2!



Uh oh, the Daemons have shown up! They're still no match for the Emperor's finest though!

I'm asking $1200 OBO for the army, and the eBay listing can be found HERE! You can contact me at SmellsLikeWargaming at hotmail dot com if interested or want more details! I do ship internationally too! Be sure to add this powerful force to your collection today and give them a loving, daemon-banishing home today! 

Whew! Alrighty, next up are Necrons and Mechanicus-themed Knight Titans, so I've got my work cut out for me!

Stay tuned!
