Well, i was starting making a blog of my undeads on lustria online to share my progress with their topic "Let's get motivated" and then... What am i doing ? Sharing vampire stuff on lizardmen forum while not sharing on the vampire one ?

So let's doing it. Hope you'll enjoy my humbles minis

A little guy who joined my troops last year​



No zombis, skeletons or ghouls for now. I'll take new pictures of them with better light than repost old crappy ones from the french forum where i'm from.



Finally, the last painted from the lustrian challenge, my ghast/hulking ghouls/flesh golems or whatever...
proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Forig00.deviantart.net%2F9d84%2Ff%2F2018%2F103%2F8%2F9%2Fdes_golems_ou_des_goules_monstrueuses___by_vg11k-dc8oh4f.png&hash=4a573fef50bd491c148ade5e7b155b68
No one really knows what these creatures are. Several similarities can be noted with the degenerated species of ghouls : the pale skin, insatiable appetite for dead flesh, notable resistance to pain and disease, aversion to light... Yet an expert in the field would point out that the similarities stop there. These things are neither living nor undead. They are parodies of non-life, amalgams without souls composed of several corpses animated by some sorceries. These unnatural aberrations are the very definition of puppets in the hands of sorcerer's apprentices. And yet. When we discovered them desecrating a vault, their master was no longer. The necromancer having the madness - or genius, I could not decide - to breathe life into them.... paid a high price. His death should have taken these creations with him. History forget until their existence. And yet. Those monsters are still out there somewhere.




And since it's a progress log section, in coming months i hope i'll get time and motivation to start this big one
proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fi58.servimg.com%2Fu%2Ff58%2F15%2F44%2F92%2F55%2Fimg_2039.jpg&hash=b434ca7ab113a248e65813349bc71d82

Also, for next month "let's get motivated", i hope to color two brothers for this cute guy :
proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fi11.servimg.com%2Fu%2Ff11%2F19%2F26%2F75%2F29%2F4forum10.jpg&hash=255d95e70825b37cfe5a5ee05fb793ee
GW call them Morghast Archai, 9th Winged Reaper... for myself i prefer to call them Baneful Seraphim.
I'll try to get a better background for family picture when the two others will be done.


Now the moment i got a big doubt... i've enjoyed and started this paint log with the "let's get motivated" from lustriaonline... did you got one i've missed for months ? I should be whipped if yes xD

Sorry for the late reply! Welcome to the plog section, good to see yet another one here - and so interesting too!

First, the characters. I really like the Carsteins and your Mordheim team look alike and yet are very different and easily recognizable, good use of color there! Konrad von Carstein and that Skaven engineer are probably my favourites there.

Then, the 'Black' knights - it's probably first time I see Cold One riders used for this purpose and it turned out very well, that cold color scheme really fits them! ;) On the corpse cart I like the driver the most, he looks so grim... it's fits such a character so well it almost hurts ;) The giant bats have a very good gargoyle quality to them and the vampire knights look just kickass. That black-red-silver color scheme works on them spledidly. I also made my Blood Knights out of chaos ones and I have to tell that your choice of the banner makes me reconsider my past decisions ;) What heads did you use for them?

Nice work on those flesh golems too. I like how one of them has differently-colored skin, but it would be probably even better if all of them had slightly different skintones - that would reinforce the 'created out of found corpses' look. But that's just my opinion ;) Nice piece of story too!

Undead Wyvern looks super cool and very promising! I don't know if I ever saw it here on CN - would be nice to see it painted. And that, man, he is great! I see that's both the conversion and the painting are super simple, but it looks brilliant. Great baroque look!

Keep up with the good work and keep showing us the results ;)

Hey

Thanks for your comment and the analyze of my minis. From someone with a "plog" section as your, i really enjoy it - i'm still chocked by your zombi swarm unit...

The druchii cold-ones as black knights was an idea from a gw seller and i probably don't have thank him enought for it. As well as the vampire knights conversion from chaos knights. Their heads are from an high-elf box, a friend gave me in exchange for skull heads. But i don't know in wich set he took them. Also pleased you like my Crypt Guards banner. Usually peoples ask me why did i draw nothing on them xD

I like how one of them has differently-colored skin
in fact, the different one was my color test. I liked it but it wasn't what i wished for. So i kept it and tried again for the two others...

I'm still seeking motivation to work on the wyvern. It's just based in black for now. But this one is not on my todo-list for now. I'll gladly share it here when it'll be.

For my Seraphim, i stole the idea from @DessTelain on twitter who also did a great job. This creature got two little brothers still drying right here. Wanna work again on them soon. With 4 zombis, a color-test of Hexwraith (or Lymbo Horseman as i call them, because Hexwraith didn't mean anything in my language) and a very old conversion of chaos dwarf, they are on my list of May (of Let's fet motivated thread, on Lustriaonline & french vampire forum)

Looking really cool! Love the way your black knights on cold ones look, and I especially like the little lantern holding guy. As what do you play him? Necromancer?

Really interested in how the wyvern is going to turn out! Please keep us updated! :)

Ouh, kinda missed this here. Nice stuff you have there so far, I REALLY like the Seraphim! That's one extremely good looking Gent, finally something great coming out of those Morghast idea (I for myself see them as the ugliest models GW popped out for the undead...). Nice work dude, keep it up!

Everybody loves cold ones ^^

Usually yes. Ben when i don't need necromancer or already have one on foot it's a simple creepy guy.

i will as soon as i start painting her. Promise. But there is few little guys i want to color before starting with this huge one. The biggest of my collection in fact.
Even my undead dragon is smaller (even for a dragon this model is small... he die still young xD)

I REALLY like the Seraphim!
Nice work dude, keep it up!
Thank you !
I share your opinion. I'm not convinced by gw design but i kind of like the idea of hulking undead golem (ogre skelton base maybe ?) for elite troops.
In fact, i'm not the one who get the idea. It's https://twitter.com/DessTelain who was happy his idea inspired me.

Here my montlhy painted minis :

My bat swarms from the previous month but i forgot to share here

My first Lymbo Horsemen. As i see the result, i'll keep this simple pattern for the next ones.

And now family picture. I got time to color two brothers.

And, well, since it will be a knightmare (hoho i made a joke in english...) to carry if i wish to play with them, i took advantage of the magnets i put on wings and base :

Note that i store every mini in transparent box like this one. Nice to expose on my shelf and quick to pick for a battle.

Again some really lovely looking models! The way you painted the hexwraith (or limbo horseman) looks really cool and gives it quite an eery and ghostly look!

Wait you've got another undead dragon? Show it to us! :D

Thanks for the horsemen. I already started the four next.

Well, yes and no. The one i've linked a month ago is an Undead Wyvern, so it could be played as an Abyss Terror for VC v7 or v8 (not sure about the english name of these unit...). I also bought the red dragon mini from reaper that i intended to paint as an undead one .
proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.reapermini.com%2Fgraphics%2Fgallery%2F4%2F89001_w_1.jpg&hash=61ca029dd701b02a06b973c65c2f81b0

But once i got him, he was far smaller than i expected. Half the size of the wyvern. But still, it's a dragon mini. I'll deal with him later, after the wyvern. For now he's not even stuck and idk if i'll convert him physically (wounds, guts and cie) or just apply a spooky color schema. My young little undead dragon...

Wow, those are really cool bats! Those blue wings look really good on them, they make a good cold background for those warmly-colored feral faces :) Shame they're only in one pose.

The Seraphim look amazing, that's an unit to be envious about ;) Stone'y, flying, terrifying angels, what's not to love? xD Good call on magnetizing them, those wings look fragile as hell.

That Reaper dragon looks plenty cool. Making its wings look tattered should be easy, but I am not sure about tearing holes and other wounds in its body... but maybe some missing scales? Or an empty eye socket? Just throwing some ideas around ;)

BTW, thanks for sharing my pictures on the french forum :)

Thanks guys !

Yep. If it wasn't the case i would have buy far more models.

For the dragon i was thinking about the kind of wounds this guy did on the Horde Dracodile (An amazing mini btw) => http://www.belloflostsouls.net/2018/02/privateer-zombify-the-dracodile.html
But i think it will hard since the dragon is far smaller than the dracodile. But an empty eye socket and wings holes seems possibles. Wanna see when i start working on it, so not soon sadly. But i'll keep you in touch about it. Just like when i'll start paint my wyvern.


BTW, thanks for sharing my pictures on the french forum
My pleasure. On discord they wanted to see some work i saw here and was sometimes speaking of. I'm currently sharing more stuff on this tchat, flooding the whole french community with vampirecounts.net and lustriaonline stuff xD

Here we go ! New month finished new mini painted !!

First my monthly four zombis (please do no judge about the color, i made a poll about... )


proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fi18.servimg.com%2Fu%2Ff18%2F19%2F26%2F75%2F29%2Fimg_2010.jpg&hash=59f8bd06bd9d633ec9ce8d367554ddd4

And now the new Lymbo Horsemens, just before a full-squad shooting !

Also, i tagged in a drawing contest on french Bretonnian forum. Here's a little thing i made.

proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fpre00.deviantart.net%2F5cba%2Fth%2Fpre%2Fi%2F2018%2F170%2F5%2F8%2Fteam_squad_for_drawing_contest_by_vg11k-dcety9p.png&hash=af4c1a56651b5a2d47a13bbe2eecfc98


It's a bit off-subject, "not Bretonnian enought" but well... They are characters of my own and i really wished to draw then (digitaly obviously) but was seeking the motivation to do.
This contest was an opportunity like another .​

And what did the poll say about those zombies? Blue ones look interesting! They look like frozen - but that would look probably better with winter basing ;) Lymbo Horsemen turned out very cool as well, that dark color fits them well. Fire could be brighter, though - right now it blends with those dark, dulled robes a bit too much - and fire tends to be more vibrant.

The drawing is nice too! They're indeed look more Empire than Bretonnian ;) Cool idea with that faux-pegasus :thumbsup:

What am i doing ? Sharing vampire stuff on lizardmen forum while not sharing on the vampire one ?
Indeed! I'm glad you decided to share with us as you have some amazing models. Loving the ingenuity with the conversions. As everyone else seems to have said, love the spectral cold-ones and Baneful Seraphim - I've not seen any of the latter converted like that.

I'm excited about the Wyvren conversion, it's a fantastic model will monstrous as the undead!

So, will you be turning all your zombies into Smurfs, or take a poll each month and possibly end up with a zombie rainbow? Feel free to post one here as well xD

Thanks !

The Wyvern... i'm still not brave enought to start painting her. And the lack of free time doesn't really help currently. For the smurfs i don't think it will end as a rainbow. I hope at least.
A poll to decide the color of next four zombies ? Mmmh... as you share the idea i start to be afraid of the possible results xD

Or excited! Think of the possibilities! xD And how unique the unit would be!

I know what you mean about free time, it's a juggling act at times with life, hobbies etc
