Default My Custom Deamonhosts

So far I have 2 daemonhosts Larry and Matt, named after two of the employees at the card shop where I play TT every Sunday.

The brutish one was a model from some game I have no idea which one. I added a purity seal kilt/skirt made of paper and greenstuff. First I undercoated him black, believe it or not this is the first time I've base coated chaos black (I've just never got around to purchasing a can of black). I gave him a tattoo on his forehead and back of the inquisitorial rosette. The skin was done with dwarf flesh dry brushed on, with a dry brush of bronzed flesh on top of that, then dry brushed bronzed flesh/pallid flesh mixed, then dry brushed pallid flesh. I topped that off with a flesh wash then varnish, the varnish is for protection and a sweating shiny look. I still haven't done the base yet.

The next figure is almost completely greenstuff, he has a tyranid warrior face and horns from some fantasy helmet I found at the card shop. The forearms are 2nd ed genestealer arms (same as 3rd ed). He has a warrior hoof off of one leg, but you can't see it. His upper arms, legs (they're there , just covered up), and body were made on top of a wire frame I made and then covered in greenstuff. I used greenstuff for the vortex, I didn't really want to go for the sculpted vortex and more for the tentacle like vortex. He was spray painted black then the skin was done the same as Larry. This is by far the ugliest model I have made so far, not because of flaws, but because he is just ugly, with that vampire bat nose and big ears yet retains human elements making him familiar, yet alien which can be very disconcerting to many people.


Sorry for some of the blurry images, my camera was running out of power and I'm to tired to retake them.

Heya,

I love to see custom models for Hosts. Absolutely great to see them. The ones GW put out are shameful in their puny size and not so splendid sculpt either. Big nasty hosts are just awesome.

... And that said, it's time to put this in the appropriate board.

Cheers!

Excellent. "Stumpy" is amusing.
