Obs: No pictures from page 46-52, might be lost from picture host.




Well, instead of spaming an old thread heres a blog for my slowly growing army...



The warriors so far, did a champ in true CD style with banners on the back. Must say that I found GS alot easier to work with than I thought. Happy

Excellent job on the Champ!

Those shields look great ranked up, can't wait to see a completed unit Happy

Looking forward to your blog Cheers!


RE: Tjubs blog - Obsidian - 10-19-2008 06:20 AM

The shields look great, do you have a bigger/sharper pic of just them?


RE: Tjubs blog - Arashi - 10-19-2008 06:27 AM

I like the shields and the swords.

OT: Is it me, or are a lot of swedish members appearing lately?


RE: Tjubs blog - Kera foehunter - 10-19-2008 07:04 AM

love the hats great job on the beards

I know the pics aint the best, but still OK för a cellphone camera.


RE: Tjubs blog - Kera foehunter - 10-19-2008 08:32 AM

love the shield great pic from the phone


RE: Tjubs blog - Willmark - 10-19-2008 09:17 AM

Very well done. You might want to consider bulking out the hats a bit, oh my, did I just say that?


RE: Tjubs blog - slev - 10-19-2008 03:27 PM

sweet. Lots of good ideas for me to rip off Wink


RE: Tjubs blog - Hrothgar Goldgreed - 10-19-2008 05:14 PM

Wow, awesome painting. I'm very impressed!


RE: Tjubs blog - Bassman - 10-20-2008 08:31 AM

Lovely dwarfs! I always appreciate well executed big hats. Respect to the Hat!
You should definetaly bulk them up a little bit.
Great paint job too. I second everybody compliment for the shields... Takes Hat off
I just have to tell your champion could be confused with an hero vbecause of the banners.. but it looks ace,
Regards, Bassman


RE: Tjubs blog - The Snowman - 10-20-2008 08:48 AM

I too am very impressed with the shield designs. I am looking for ideas for my own project and that seems simple and effective. Don't be surprised if you see some similar ones popping up on blogs around the place. Happy


RE: Tjubs blog - Obsidian - 10-20-2008 09:29 AM

Thanks for the bigger pic Tjub! Cheers!:

Like it alot!


RE: Tjubs blog - Slavelord - 10-20-2008 09:36 AM

I'm loving the free-hand design on the shields. Not a fan of CD hats in general, but yours I'm liking...


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 10-20-2008 10:19 AM

Well, my first thought was that the hats were too thin. But after converting a few and painting them I really like them the way they are and not the "Chaos Dwarf hat v 1.0"-style. So I'll keep the slim design... Happy

Concerning the champ, I thought about that too. Just have to make them even bigger, or put them on rocks. Dont think it'll be a problem or I'll have to promote him...

Thanks for the criticism and thoughts! Happy


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 10-21-2008 02:45 PM

Got a few more done, and ready for painting...



Balawat, some kinda hero with a flaming hammer.




Tried to get som actionposes. Tongue


The warriors so far, I've only got around to do two blunderbusses. So to do atleast 10 of these i prio.

Redid some of the details on the two I've painted with tin bitz instead och boltgun metal, looks alot better IMO. I'll get some pics of that later...


RE: Tjubs blog - Lord Archaon - 10-21-2008 04:11 PM

Your CD are so Über cool! Balawat rocks! My only minor critism is about scimitars, don't you think that they're a bit out of proportion? They are a bit big IMHO.
Have a good work on your CD! Cheers!


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 10-21-2008 04:49 PM

Hmm, I like 'em big. But then I usually play greenskins so Im rather used to huge weapons... Tongue


RE: Tjubs blog - Ghrask Dragh - 10-21-2008 04:58 PM

Nice work on the action-poses and the banners, another excellent update, I hope you keep up the good work Takes Hat off


RE: Tjubs blog - furrie - 10-21-2008 05:11 PM

great work again.


RE: Tjubs blog - Bassman - 10-22-2008 02:21 AM

Good job again!
I prefer the flatten top hats (the green stuff ones) as with your "slim" big hat style the round shields look a bit too large, out of proportions.
By the way, where do you get those "balls" you place on top of the hats and banners? They are perfect!
Lovely job on the flames...


RE: Tjubs blog - Servius - 10-22-2008 05:50 AM

well I like these alot.. the hats are different but cool. I love those shields and will be stealing the idea.. lol.

They are drumstick tops from the dwarf thunderer/crossbow-box.


RE: Tjubs blog - Godbob and his jolly rogers - 10-22-2008 12:49 PM

great so far

i really like the lord flags behing flaming hammer it makes him look so cool

and brillent paint work on the sheildTakes Hat off


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 10-24-2008 05:34 AM

Two more warriors done.
The mouldline on the back of the right hat doesnt normaly show. Frustrating... Guess Ill have to try to make a thin red line down the hat. Sad




RE: Tjubs blog - minty - 10-24-2008 06:32 AM

Awesome, that is ubersweet, I love those models

it just makes me cry at how good they are, I'mm never be able to match it.


RE: Tjubs blog - Obsidian - 10-24-2008 08:01 AM

Nice rate of churning out CD's mate! Takes Hat off


RE: Tjubs blog - Kera foehunter - 10-24-2008 04:39 PM

looks great !! i like the swords!!


RE: Tjubs blog - Viskar Zhragoth - 10-24-2008 10:13 PM

Great, another new guy from Sweden who'll put my conversions to shame.....

Awesome job mate, keep it up! I really like the noses and lips you gs'd on some of those guys! Looks great, and the shields are very cool. Thanks for the pictures and the ideas. And I also liked the flaming hammer and your banners looked awesome. Can't wait to see more of it take shape! Keep us all updated.

Viskar Zhragoth.


RE: Tjubs blog - Geckilian - 10-24-2008 10:35 PM

Great start to an army there. The retro character makes me chuckle as he really does look the part with the back banners. The only criticism that occurs to me is that the hats look a tad too large and possibly too thin when compared to the wide top, but they're still impressive conversions.


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 10-25-2008 09:52 AM

First try to paint fire... Its OK, thou it was tricky to get it to look good.





RE: Tjubs blog - Merchant - 10-27-2008 06:40 AM

WOW!!!!!! Thats' an evil looking (I quess) Lord/Hero, and you units is very great - mann get them all paint, and make some more. I wanna see more Happy


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 10-27-2008 06:31 PM

The banners were a pain to paint, much easier on smaller scale models... So I made som burning skulls instead, not realy satisfied with the fire so I might redo it before painting...



CD Sorceror... Fireball! :thumb:

RE: Tjubs blog - Arashi - 10-28-2008 06:44 AM

Most impressed of your fires, really love how you sculpt them. Also love your shields!


RE: Tjubs blog - Tharzhul Firehelm - 10-28-2008 07:55 AM

those shields look really good.


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 10-28-2008 12:54 PM


The "backpack" for my hero turned out OK at last...


RE: Tjubs blog - Kera foehunter - 10-28-2008 05:38 PM

wow like your army!! great green stuff and paintjob


RE: Tjubs blog - Ghrask Dragh - 10-28-2008 07:03 PM

Excellent! nice work on the fires Cheers!


RE: Tjubs blog - centauro enano - 10-28-2008 09:19 PM

Good work Takes Hat off, the hats are very original.


RE: Tjubs blog - Warlord Ghazak Gazhkull - 10-29-2008 06:45 AM

RE: Tjubs blog - Warlord Ghazak Gazhkull - 11-06-2008 02:49 PM

Hello,

very nice looking chaos dwarves tjub, I might loot some of your ideas. I'm looking forward to the next update

Greetz


RE: Tjubs blog - WarplockMonkey - 11-06-2008 04:45 PM

How do you manage to paint the hot metal on the lord/hero's hammer? It looks REALLY effective and i *ahem* may haveto steal the idea at somepoint Tongue

RE: Tjubs blog - slev - 11-07-2008 05:09 AM

Awesome standard dude.


RE: Tjubs blog - Merchant - 11-07-2008 03:21 PM

Wow Cool all over army start, I cannot waite to see what to come from this master mind of evil Wink


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 11-08-2008 09:28 AM

Now Ive got the last minis painted that I had converted, Im really satisfied with the way my CD side prodject turned out. So you'll see an army of these later on... But I'll take a break from it for now and do the last work on my Night Gobbos thats been half finished for a while now. Sad

Havent decided what to paint on the banner yet, thou it will be sometning involving fire to go with the sheilds... Ideas?
Heres the painted models so far...













RE: Tjubs blog - Bassman - 11-08-2008 11:53 AM

The ranked unit is really impressive.
Let show us your hobbos! And I wish you're going back to the Dawi Zharr as soon as possible! Takes Hat off


RE: Tjubs blog - GRNDL - 11-08-2008 12:07 PM

Serious hats! Serious tusks and serious beards! Thats what defines CDs to me. The colour scheme of these dwarves is simple and very effective. Even though a lot of the models are painted in similar colours, its very clean and defined. I love the flames and lava lighting. I wish I could it off as well as this.


RE: Tjubs blog - Willmark - 11-08-2008 08:50 PM

Newsflash: "Economists are at lost to explain why under these trying economic times pushpins are rapidly disappearing worldwide... now back to you Phil".

Great Work indeed! i particularly love your glow effect in your Hero's hammer(In the picture where he's painted) sad you did'nt keep the banners though, really loved those.

Anywho about the banners, might i ask how you created them? I'd like to use them on my own little "spawns"Happy

Thanks... About the banners, they were a pain to paint. Ive been using banners for 15mm but they were much easier to paint since they arent as detailed.
Cut out a pice of paper, fold it on the middle around the pole. Soak it in 2/3 PVA 1/3 water and shape it the way you want...

Thank you very much, i was thinking of giving them a "coat" of superglue, maybe that helps? anyway thanks.

I really liked Necro's Bull centarus so I started on a concept model for mine... No GS yet thou.





RE: Tjubs blog - Bassman - 11-15-2008 02:03 PM

Oh-oh! You do not stop to produce Evil stunties, this is a very good new! Respect to the Hat!
Your bull looks promising but you should bulk the body a little bit! He is a massive S4 T4 creature, not a pony. Rolleyes
Chop the body and enlarge it or I'll send you my slave masters! Hashut!

I'm not crazy for the shield-hat... but you already know... I like flat topped big hats... Happy
Bye Bassman


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 11-15-2008 02:08 PM

Heh, well I took some more photos...

Blunderbusses




Almost done with the bull centaur, he's getting a sheild and I need to pimp the hat. Happy


RE: Tjubs blog - Kera foehunter - 11-15-2008 03:20 PM

wow i like the pony boy !!!!! great job .it looks perfects


RE: Tjubs blog - centauro enano - 11-23-2008 09:21 AM

Good job again, I wondered which of these figures are so small shields?


RE: Tjubs blog - Merchant - 11-23-2008 11:58 AM

Again I like what I see from you my friend, and that Bullie cannot be completed fast enough Wink because I'll like to see it now, right now.
cheers Cheers!


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 11-23-2008 01:19 PM

The Bull Centaur is ready to be painted, thou no pics of the finished conversion, I forgot! Tongue
...any way, here's my finished Blunder Busses.

I did something a bit comic for a Lord, I know the fluff for the Great Taurus but I tend to think of the monsters as demons. And how cool woulndt it be if there were calfs. As you can see the situation is a bit embaressing for some...


The GS between the wings is for the sadle.







RE: Tjubs blog - furrie - 11-23-2008 01:29 PM

why does the lord slaps him self against his head ?. the Lord looks cool, did you use a pen for the hat or does it just look that way.


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 11-23-2008 01:36 PM

Jepp, it is... Happy

Because he is a mighty über Chaos Dwarf Lord of Doom and rides a flaming cute calf to battle that couldnt even cause fear to a goblin if it tried its best.


RE: Tjubs blog - Bassman - 11-23-2008 03:31 PM

I can't believe! This is extra stupid.... but funny. Big Grin
Blunders are ok. Sculpting on the lord is great, I'm not crazy for the hat. But I did not like also the original 5th ed hero with the tallest hat. Respect to the Hat!


RE: Tjubs blog - Hashut's Blessing - 11-23-2008 06:54 PM

I love the hat on the lord and good choice to decide to make it comical. After all, I don't believe that I've seen a conversion from a toy that hasn't looked docile or odd.


RE: Tjubs blog - so.sad - 11-24-2008 03:02 PM

damn, I love the hat of your Lord, consider the design stolen Takes Hat off
Nice sculpting on the Blunderbussers.

While I like the calf idea I dont like the actual model. Judging by your other GS work I think you can do better than this!
Cheers!


RE: Tjubs blog - Kera foehunter - 11-24-2008 06:23 PM

that is so great  !!! Now that a real great taurus
it explain the way we feal, gw views the cds!!!!!


RE: Tjubs blog - Captain Crayon - 11-24-2008 07:28 PM

It oozes awesome.

I love the hats. Big, shiny, spiky pimptacular hats make me happy Happy


RE: Tjubs blog - wallacer - 11-24-2008 08:03 PM

I like it a lot.  The blunders are great and the Lord is a nice touch of humour.


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 11-25-2008 05:53 AM

WIP, the calf is done... It looks a bit more evil than I thought it would, but still ok.

Ah, sorry... Didnt see your post untill now. I assume you mean the sheilds on the blunderbusses? Its from "the shooty dwarf box", you get about 30 of them.


RE: Tjubs blog - Kera foehunter - 11-25-2008 06:31 AM

ah!!!! he look alot so cute before
now he look so evil !!!!


RE: Tjubs blog - Merchant - 11-25-2008 11:06 AM

He looks cute in an evil sort of way Happy a very great conversion from a cute cow to an evil chaotic Taurus
Keep them coming mate Cheers!


RE: Tjubs blog - Dino - 11-25-2008 11:29 AM

That Taurus chafe looks really nice. I know it's probably to late to suggest this but I think it needs a few armour bitz like on it's head and on all of it's lower legs.


RE: Tjubs blog - Fridericus_Rex - 11-25-2008 11:44 AM

Very cute cow, eh bull Happy Top notch on him!


RE: Tjubs blog - furrie - 11-25-2008 12:52 PM

he might look better with horns, but he already looks cool


RE: Tjubs blog - Willmark - 11-25-2008 11:48 PM

Great work but I think it still needs to look evenn more evil!


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 11-27-2008 07:11 AM

Well, the lord is done... Im pleased how it turned out, a bit more evil than I aimed for but still the curios/afraid calf look. Tongue




"sniff sniff..."


RE: Tjubs blog - Hashut's Blessing - 11-27-2008 07:15 AM

It certainly does look curious, particularly with that caption. Love the flame effects and mild sourc-lighting. Incredibly well done!


RE: Tjubs blog - Arashi - 11-27-2008 07:19 AM

Really good tjub, though I have to admit that, as you said, it doesn´t look as good anymore painted that way Tongue

RE: Tjubs blog - Ghrask Dragh - 11-27-2008 08:10 AM

Excellent stuff tjub Cheers!


RE: Tjubs blog - al-hashut - 11-27-2008 02:39 PM

Not half bad in the end...although, seeing as he doesn't look so cute anymore i think a decent set of horns wouldn't be out of the picture.

Love your take on the big hats Tjub. Can't wait to see the whole force completed


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 11-27-2008 03:39 PM

Got my first Bull Centaur painted today too, creds to whoever it was here that showed a conversion with a BFSP pony.







RE: Tjubs blog - al-hashut - 11-27-2008 03:57 PM

Lookin' mighty fine Tjub. Especially like the glowing eyes on the shield and the attention to detail with the wood effect on the back of the shield.

MAkes me can't wait to get back to blighty and make some more BC's of my own. Good work my man


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 11-29-2008 09:50 AM

First two blunder busses painted. The army will be very red, wonder if I should try to mix the color of the hats. Red, black and metal... Hmm...


RE: Tjubs blog - wallacer - 12-03-2008 03:09 PM

The bull centaur looks fantastic.  Hard to believe it was made with that silly BfSP pony.


RE: Tjubs blog - Kera foehunter - 12-03-2008 05:58 PM

i would mix up the colors on the hats !!!


RE: Tjubs blog - Hashut's Blessing - 12-03-2008 07:41 PM

Looking VERY good. Can't wait to see them all done... Hinty hint..


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 12-06-2008 09:37 AM

I stuck with red hats, thou no sheilds on top on them... Might redo the older ones to smooth tops. Tongue

...anyway, 5 blunderbusses.



RE: Tjubs blog - Kera foehunter - 12-06-2008 03:05 PM

i like the new hat tops !!but i like the shield hat tops too, i would leve them they look great with the shield for the top of the hat Tjub


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 12-13-2008 11:20 AM

but holy bull did not sound that funny


RE: Tjubs blog - Bassman - 12-14-2008 01:46 PM

I continue to love your army. Now you just need 5 more blunderbusses and 10 more warriors to have a nice core for your Dawi Zharr army.


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 12-15-2008 04:57 PM

A bit more actionposes on these...

Hehe, sooner than you might think. Played two games with my gobbos last week and actually built another pumpwagon this weekend, but nothing painted yet. Im really hooked on the green stuffing for the moment... Happy



Anyway, redid the "sheild hats" so I guess someone will get happy around here. Also pimped my bosses hat...


Started to work on a hobgobbo, the pics just to get the size about right. Btw, gobbosize for me is the new/older Night Gobbos. Wink

cool hobbo, he looks pretty neat


RE: Tjubs blog - slev - 12-18-2008 06:10 AM

Nice, although IMNSHO, the hobbo should be a little.

I do not agree, an hobgoblin should be as tall as an human. Even tough with the hunchback he could be a little smaller.

Very good job, you'll get crazy making 70-100 of them... Rolleyes
I hope for your mental sanity you are going to cast them... Happy

RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 12-19-2008 09:18 AM

I know, fluffwise they are as big as a human but I didnt want to make them that big. So mine will be about shouldheight of a norman human or as tall as my CDs. Happy

Hehe, no I have no plans on casting them...


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 12-19-2008 03:09 PM

I planed to start painting the hobgobbo today, but realized I had forgot to GS a belt. So had to paint my second bull centaur instead, just need to build a few more then I'll be able to play my first game, wohoo! Happy






RE: Tjubs blog - Hashut's Blessing - 12-19-2008 03:43 PM

Looking lovely so far. Good to see you're having the lava flow across the bases properly Wink


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 12-20-2008 09:13 AM




He'll get a sheild later on when I've decided what to paint on it...


RE: Tjubs blog - Hazkar - 12-20-2008 10:48 AM

NICE HOBBO
i like the style of the hat
the shoes are also cool,are they converted or from an other model?


RE: Tjubs blog - al-hashut - 12-20-2008 11:38 AM

Sweet looking hobbo Tjub. Like the santa-helper-esque shoes. Very in keeping with the season


RE: Tjubs blog - Kera foehunter - 12-20-2008 01:20 PM

OMG !!!! I LOVE THE DRUMMER  consider the idea stolen !!!
great job on the archers too


RE: Tjubs blog - Merchant - 12-28-2008 07:24 PM

What Kira said Happy


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 12-30-2008 08:26 AM


Did faces on the centaurs, but dont know how much I should pimp their hats. I might be too much if all of them got horns and skulls etc.


And finally done with these fellas, a unit of 10 is what I aimed for and then som spear chukkas and death rockets. Happy


RE: Tjubs blog - Bassman - 12-30-2008 11:21 AM

Lovely stuff again. I always check your blog for updates.
I love your command on bull centaurs but are you really going to field them with musician, champion and stadard bearer? I know modelwise he is probaly the best one but gamewise the bull musician is just 15 points thrown away... Hashut!


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 12-30-2008 12:54 PM

Thanks!

Hehe, well I didnt know that. I make/paint the models I like, then I make the list based on what models I have. So he'll be doing the drumming... Happy


RE: Tjubs blog - Dino - 12-30-2008 12:56 PM

Looking at your BC makes me want to restart mine. Nice work. Kinda like the hobgoblins. But I personally think they should be taller.


RE: Tjubs blog - Kera foehunter - 12-30-2008 06:45 PM

love the hobgoblin (smurfs) they are so cute


RE: Tjubs blog - Willmark - 12-30-2008 08:40 PM

This army is packed with awesome goodness stem to stern, that should make Kera happy I said that.


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 01-07-2009 06:32 PM




Done with my third unit, not 100% about the banner thou... :/


RE: Tjubs blog - This_Is_My_Boomstick!! - 01-07-2009 06:59 PM

The armys looking really good, dont normally like the Tall hats but they look really great as they are shaped and not straight up like the normal ones


RE: Tjubs blog - al-hashut - 01-07-2009 07:04 PM

Think they look great Tjub. Banner looks good, maybe the skull could do with beefing out but it still looks cool. Maybe a Rune of Hashut on one or both of those drums if you want to add more detail.

Great job


RE: Tjubs blog - Bassman - 01-08-2009 04:05 AM

The drummer ans the two side bulls are my favorites. Great job again Takes Hat off

Love the lava bases with continuity of the lava flow.

Banner: flames are ok, as usual, it's the skull and arrows that need more highlightens. They are too flat. I'm sure with a little bit of work you could improve them a lot.

I'd also cut away that rune on the banner for a nice free-hand rune of Hashut, but this is a minor detail.
Regards, Bassman


RE: Tjubs blog - Kera foehunter - 01-08-2009 06:05 AM

looks great !!! nice painted army !! the drummer so cool
i know it too late, but the drum heads would look cool if it was a dwarf face stretched
over the drum


RE: Tjubs blog - Arashi - 01-08-2009 04:43 PM

Galet snyggt Tjub!

Must say that your whole army is splendid. Really like your bullcentaurs, especially the drums your musician have!


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 01-12-2009 12:23 PM

Just started my death rockets, so theres a lot to do still but here's the concept. Go hide you british....

Chaos Dwarf V2 rockets! Happy


RE: Tjubs blog - al-hashut - 01-12-2009 02:07 PM

lol...*cowers in an anderson shelter and remembers the blitz*


Good job, should look nice with a bit of GS smoke. Don't forget, you can always make a v1, with a hobbo chained/holding on for dear life


RE: Tjubs blog - furrie - 01-12-2009 02:43 PM

Cool idea for a DR


RE: Tjubs blog - Kera foehunter - 01-12-2009 05:57 PM

What a great idea tjubs  i like it that so cool


RE: Tjubs blog - Bassman - 01-13-2009 06:22 AM

Cool idea, why do you not build a ramp? Even a small one would be cool.
Also consider entering Golden hat comp Respect to the Hat!


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 01-13-2009 08:15 AM

Bassman: I started with a ramp, but V2 ramps were quite small so it just looked to funky and non-wahammerish.




RE: Tjubs blog - Bassman - 01-13-2009 12:58 PM

Yes I know but I think a ramp is needed to aim the rocket to something. Do not think Chaos Dwarfs produced any sort of control system.
But yours rockets look funny and cool as they are, so why not leaving them as they are now?


RE: Tjubs blog - Eternal - 01-13-2009 12:58 PM

I really like those death rockets! You need a chaos dwarf pressing a large red button as crew now lol.


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 01-13-2009 04:11 PM

@Eternal: Got plans for the crew.... Wink



Finally a unit of Hobgobbo archers!


RE: Tjubs blog - theimmortal - 01-13-2009 04:25 PM

a v2 can oonly scare you if your scared of it, great army man


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 01-13-2009 04:29 PM

@theimmortal: Jepp, I ran out of green and grey was cheaper. So I thought I'd try it out, thou I must say I prefer green basicly because its stickier and with grey you sometimes have to superglue on the small stuff and then sculpt it. But otherwise its almost the same...


RE: Tjubs blog - Kera foehunter - 01-13-2009 06:18 PM

RE: Tjubs blog - GRNDL - 01-17-2009 04:06 PM

I really like these hobbos. They are a nice simple conversion but echo the old style hobgoblins with new gobbo parts. Very effective and they look to have the right proportions rather than regular gobbo ones.


RE: Tjubs blog - theimmortal - 01-18-2009 03:37 PM

@grndl i agree i think thease are some of the best hobgoblin conversions out there[/align]


RE: Tjubs blog - Kera foehunter - 01-19-2009 06:55 AM

wow they look great painted !! nice !


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 01-19-2009 05:51 PM

RE: Tjubs blog - clam - 01-23-2009 07:36 AM

How could I have missed this blog - so sorry Tjub.

What a beautiful army you are building there Takes Hat off

Well performed - and though, I have always found those Ponies to small for BCs - you have really found a way to bulk them up. Great work - and the actually looks cool Big Grin

And the Hobgoblins ... they are the best scratch build hobbos I have seen - slaves are comming you way - to help you out.


RE: Tjubs blog - Obsidian - 01-23-2009 08:50 AM

Again, great stuff there mate!

Sooo in love with those shields! Cheers!


RE: Tjubs blog - al-hashut - 01-23-2009 09:15 AM

Great Hobbo's and i love the glowing eyes on the shields, very menacing


RE: Tjubs blog - Willmark - 01-25-2009 10:14 AM

Everytime I look at this blog I'm floored. The hobbos are very characterful.


RE: Tjubs blog - Swissdictator - 01-25-2009 12:53 PM

I'm favoriting this thread. Very nice work.

May I use the idea on the Hobgoblins here? Seems the most cost effective, and true to the classic style.

RE: Tjubs blog - Groznit Goregut - 02-03-2009 04:58 PM

Holy Hobgoblins!  I've seen your blog over on Da Warpath, but it doesn't have as much great stuff as here!  Cheers!

I am really taken by your thumb tack hat idea.  It's one of the things that I recall from Da Warpath that helped me think I could actually convert a Chaos Dwarf army.  All of your conversions are top notch.  I absolutely love your blunderbussiers.  I'm trying to track down some of those shields to use the same way, as well.  

Your Bull Centaurs are fan-tastic!  I was going to try to convert some up, but yours look so good, that I am going to follow your example.  I love the shields.  I don't think you should listen to what people say about musicians.  I've won many combats with my greenskins due to the fact that I had a musician and they didn't.  Also, if you actually do break, you have a much better chance of rallying.  Since you play OnG, you know that every point makes it worth it.  

The most pressing question that I have to ask at this point is: "How do you do those beards?"  They are great.  There is one of your heroes that had some amazing rings of hair.  Do you make a tub and just mark it?  Is there some other secret?  Your beards are some of the best that I have seen.

Thanks for the feedback, really inspires to paint more... Happy

The beards are done from tubes, they vary a bit in size and thinkness. And some of them "start" under the beard...



RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 02-04-2009 04:28 PM


My ballistas.


The whole unit of Hobgobbo archers, they are supposted to be lined up in a row of ten.

RE: Tjubs blog - Ghrask Dragh - 02-04-2009 05:05 PM

You paint a very cool lava effect too Takes Hat off


RE: Tjubs blog - Groznit Goregut - 02-04-2009 05:08 PM

Thanks for the response!  And for fixing my spelling of tube.

So, I have to ask again.  What shields are those that are on the ends of the blunderbusses?  Some shields that came with thunderers?  BfSP Thunderers?  Old version of thunderers?  I was just going to use some older, flat shields, but your shields make the weapon look fantastic with the concave top.  I asked an old dwarf player, but he didn't know.

Yes please! One of the things I enjoy most about forums is reading battlereports and our CDO subforum for batreps is kind of quiet.

Other than that I'd like to say that your stuff is really good! It's very nice to see another big hat army.

The Bull Centaurs are very good, like a lot of people have said. I especially like the banner and also the shields, they are very nice.

Looking forward to see more stuff.
Do you attend tournaments? If you do it would be fun to go to the same one with our two CD armies when they're finished. Two chaos dwarf armies at the same tournament is like chaos dwarf spamming Wink

RE: Tjubs blog - Xander - 02-26-2009 09:52 AM

If you have 1000 points now, can I request a shot of the Army! Happy

Haha, sure that would be great! No I dont do tournaments with GW games, I've played one in about 15 years and I dont like competetive gameing much.

Hehe, well Ive got 1000pts including magic items and my GH#8 entry... So the pics will have to wait, btw Ive got well over 1000pts if that include my Lord on Great Taurus, but since I dont have troops for a 2000pts army I didnt count him.


RE: Tjubs blog - Swissdictator - 02-26-2009 12:32 PM

tjub: Sheer awesomeness of your army does not excuse a lack of pictures of an army as a whole! Get to it!

Throw in the Great Taurus as well. Despite not being legal in a 1,000 points army, he brings you a lot closer to a 2,000 points army! Nearly half way!

I'm looking forward to seeing a massive army carrying your banner to victory.

Man that is so cool, SQUATS! Respekt!

Sadly I live in Stockholm and I only attend local(ish) tournaments, don't think I'd go further than Västerås, but I've heard a lot of good stuff about gothcon though so I've been tempted (men har familj så att vara borta en hel helg funkar inte så bra). But I'm not really into competitive gaming either I usually end up in the middle of the result list. My goal is the painting price.

It looks so freaking cool. Very dynamic and active. The crew protecting their ears, and the one running are a very nice touch. Plus the one glaring and pointing is sweet.

RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 03-03-2009 01:15 AM

My next five year plan will focus on the following, five blunderbusses and five warrors. Then Ill do 10 hobgoblins riders, havent decided for CC or bows yet, tips?
After that there will be, more centaurs, a new unit of CD warriors, two hobgoblin units, black orcs, earth shaker, special characters, monsters, more wolf riders, "some funky homegrown troops" etc in no particilar order... Tongue

Ive been busy painting Soviet armour the last few weeks, but Im almost done so its back to CD soon.

I know all about that 5 year plan. I call it my before we have kids plan, except the timeline is down to just under 2 years. I am trying to knock off 4k of CD and 3k of DOW in that time (modeled and painted). It is a pretty intense pace.


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 03-08-2009 01:38 PM



The next batch of Chaos Dwarfs in progress, 5 warriors and 5 blunderbusses.


RE: Tjubs blog - WhyNotCrashDifferently? - 03-08-2009 02:36 PM

Excellent stuff in this thread. Pinhats frequently look silly and out of scale to me but yours are fantastic and nicely executed. I also really like your Hobgoblins.

Looking forward to seeing more.


RE: Tjubs blog - Kera foehunter - 03-08-2009 03:27 PM

i hope you don't run out of thumb tacks!! tjub  can't wait to see more!!

Keep it up tjub! I know the Soviets have been distracting you, but don't make me call upon the Commissar of the Dawi Zharr! Tongue


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 03-13-2009 02:36 AM

...an update on what Im doing, just so you dont think I spend my time slacking. The pics are very much WIP. Tongue




RE: Tjubs blog - furrie - 03-13-2009 04:20 AM

what kind of monster are you creating, it looks cool and brutal Tongue


RE: Tjubs blog - Kera foehunter - 03-13-2009 05:57 AM

wow i to like the mystery  monster and cds too


RE: Tjubs blog - Swissdictator - 03-13-2009 07:11 AM

I know what the mystery figure is, but I'm not saying! Big Grin

I'm liking the blunderbuss, they are looking very nice tjub. I really need to practice me beards...


RE: Tjubs blog - Zanko - 03-13-2009 12:27 PM

Oh yeah, I also have an idea what this big "monster" once will grow into ... Takes Hat off

I believe it has something to do with flying and with sorcerers ... am I right?!?!? Happy

Maybe a bit more obvious now... Happy


RE: Tjubs blog - Dino - 03-13-2009 01:43 PM

Holy Crap! That is a very inventive Lamassu. Needs bushy eye brows in my honest opinion but thats just me.


RE: Tjubs blog - Groznit Goregut - 03-13-2009 01:43 PM

So Cool!  It is going to look very nice.  

Too bad you can't fit a big hat on him....but it would just get in the way of the rider.  Unless the rider rode in the hat???  Shock


RE: Tjubs blog - tjub - 03-13-2009 01:47 PM

@Dino: He will get that later on, as well as a jaw and fangs.


RE: Tjubs blog - Zanko - 03-13-2009 03:03 PM

My reasoning wasn´t to bad ... Tongue

What rider will you use? I have an unused "Big Hat" with a hammer ... I think the mini could fit quite well! Respect to the Hat!

If you want him you could PM me!

       Hashut!

RE: Tjubs blog - Dino - 03-13-2009 04:48 PM

Very very nice tjub. But if it's a portrait of you you need a little more hair on him first. What do you have planned for the rider?


RE: Tjubs blog - Kera foehunter - 03-13-2009 05:39 PM

wow that looks great  !! thanks  her have some slaves


RE: Tjubs blog (WIP Lammasu) - Arashi - 03-14-2009 07:22 AM

That lamassu is by far my favorite ever. It really fits using the giants head.

RE: Tjubs blog (WIP Lammasu) - grisnik - 03-14-2009 10:57 AM

Wow.. nice mount for your sorc.. but what is the metal parts? Looks to be a good base indeed..

Also great Hobgoblin conversions/scults.. great inspriation..

Will keep an eye on this thread more now Big Grin


RE: Tjubs blog (WIP Lammasu) - so.sad - 03-14-2009 11:45 AM

wow tjub, thats a really good idea for the lammasu and its comming out well. I might need to use it as inspiration!

I like your work very much

keep it comming


RE: Tjubs blog (WIP Lammasu) - Ghrask Dragh - 03-14-2009 12:08 PM

Thats amazing work! The most innovative lammasu I've ever seen, the oversized hoofs from the giant adds loads of character and the beard is an excellent sculpt. Amazing blog tjub, one of the best Cheers!

I like the lammasu it's very different but looks a lot more like the terror causing monstrosity it should be rather than the smiley lion excuse we are currently lumbered with I bet it will look even better painted up judging by your other work

Great, great conversion, Tjub. Very unique Takes Hat off.

Will you mount a sorcerer on the back of it - or just base hime together with the lammasu?


RE: Tjubs blog (WIP Lammasu) - Tarrakk Blackhand - 03-14-2009 05:48 PM

Looks awesome Tjub! Yeah, I can see the family resembelance in the Lammasu.

Jepp, the Lammasu is finished now and I just started on a sorceror... Funny how you never feel like doing what you are supposed to. I was going to make faces on ten WIP warriors and then I got this idea for a Lammasu, two days and a Lammasu later... Tongue

@Warlord Ghazak Gazhkull: Hmm, might be wrong here but Im rather sure thats how it looks on the original model, or kinda. But I like it the way it is, so it'll stay... Happy

...and about the swedish member I dont know, but we are quite a few nordic ppl around here.
Btw, Ill post som pics of the finished model tomorrow.


RE: Tjubs blog (WIP Lammasu) - clam - 03-15-2009 02:53 AM

Know all about that Big Grin

Will he be mounted?  - I'll look forward seeing it.

And yes, we a quite a few nordics here - don't know why, the tall blonds of scandinavia have such a soft spot for small, fat guys with curly beards and a stupid hats Big Grin

Ones, we plotted ourselves in a Frappr map (look at this thread: http://www.chaos-dwarfs.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=2174), but I don't think it has been used for some time. Maybe we should bring it back to life.

Ok, so the Lammasu is all finished now... Im just going to fill the gap between the tail and torso which I saw now on the pics but otherwise its done.


Blaaargh!






WIP of the Sorceror, he'll get a hat and the its time for GS.

It could pass for a giant as well, which is handy.


RE: Tjubs blog (WIP Lammasu) - tjub - 03-15-2009 04:35 PM

It'll take some time before it gets painted, so dont hold your breath... I'll green stuff the sorceror first and finish my ten warriors Im working on as well.
Cant decide what to do with the sorcerors hat thou. It will be a "pinhat" with huge horns, but its the top Im thinking on. Maybe a flaming skull, or a skull with beard or plate with fire(buckler)... Err...


RE: Tjubs blog (WIP Lammasu) - Groznit Goregut - 03-15-2009 06:25 PM

That is crazy good.  I wish you did a different Great Taurus so I could steal your idea.  Absolutely fantastic work.

WIP of the Sorceror mounted on my Lammasu, cant decide what to do with the hat.


Tried som more dynamic poses for my last blunderbusses, but the hats are giving me a head ace. Ive simply ran out of hat inspiration. Tongue

@Groznit Goregut: There will be some other Great Taurus later, or maybe a "count as"...

This is going to be good, is the sorcerer going to have a mask? if not then I would decorate the hat with a skull (cliche I know Big Grin) if so then I would just stick with the lightning bolts.

Jepp, I know. My bad... I didnt look on the old models, and my memory was wrong there. I actually thought that a sorcerer cant have a armour, but since the old ones have it Ill do it. But, doh, the old ones didnt! I even chopped the staff of an old sorcerer and didnt see it... So not much to do, it has to be some chaos armour thing, since you can or atleast could cast spells with chaos armour. Anyway the beard and the cloak covers most of the armour so hopefully no one will notice... Tongue

Edit: @Ghrask Dragh: He got a skull now. Wink I'll just have to add some arrows later...

Are you considering occasionally using WoC rules then? Tongue Though I agree, when we're redone... seeing as we *make*Chaos Armor, we should be allowed to give our Sorcs that. That, and our regular lords/heroes too.

Great work as always.  The lammasu's head just doesn't quite look right to me.  I think its the bald head?  What are the parts btw?

I can definately see a Showcase Army medal heading your way eventually.


RE: Tjubs blog (Lammasu & Sorcerer are finished) - tjub - 03-17-2009 06:40 PM

@Dino: Next up will be Hobgobbo riders I guess...

@Grimstone: Heh, its a matter of taste I guess. I really like the bald head, looks like an evil grumpy old Lammasu... The head and hoofs are from the giant box, and the body and wings are from the manticore. The rest is GS.


RE: Tjubs blog (Lammasu & Sorcerer are finished) - WhyNotCrashDifferently? - 03-17-2009 07:10 PM

I like the bald head as well, adds character.

It really is the best bit of the mini, in all honesty from what i can see its the best lammasu I've seen.

RE: Tjubs blog (WIP Hobgobbo riders) - Kera foehunter - 03-22-2009 05:55 AM

they have no tails ???  those are some great wolf riders !!
here an idea i came up with when looking at them tjubs!
          * idea *
it would be cool if you got one of them wolfin  were-wolf figure from confontaion and put him on a leash and have a hobgobin pulling him and holding him back as a the champion figure of the unit ??


RE: Tjubs blog (WIP Hobgobbo riders) - tjub - 03-22-2009 04:59 PM

Hmm, the plan was to have no tail. But I started to think what if they had a tail. Did one just to see how it would look and then suddenly they all had tails! Tongue But now I realized the dont have any ears either, hmm....




RE: Tjubs blog (WIP Hobgobbo riders) - jolpis - 03-22-2009 05:14 PM

wow, nice love the wolves, the tails must have been a struggle.
The riders armor looks a bit wierd tho.


RE: Tjubs blog (WIP Hobgobbo riders) - tjub - 03-22-2009 05:56 PM

I know, they arent the most exciting models to work on and the armour isnt as good as it could be. But it will look better once painted...


RE: Tjubs blog (WIP Hobgobbo riders) - Dino - 03-22-2009 05:58 PM

RE: Tjubs blog (WIP Hobgobbo riders) - Border Reiver - 03-23-2009 11:14 AM

I'm glad that you're not using that Taurus (the rider is a different story).  It looks so much like a milk cow that I found myself looking for the udder (which might make for an interesting flaming attack).  Nothing to detract from the painting, which is excellent, but a Great Taurus with such tiny wings and no horns really wouldn't be an impressive centrepiece like your lammasu is.

RE: Tjubs blog (WIP Hobgobbo riders) - Ishkur Cinderhat - 03-23-2009 05:35 PM

Why is the Chaos lord on the Taurus calf being so sad? Or is he tired from the weight of his hat (impossible because we are built to support such weight on our curly heads!)..?

I do the face in one go. First mustache -> jaw/lip -> fangs -> nose

Fast du skulle kunna låta det torka efter varje så blir det lättare, men tar dock längre tid. När jag gör tänderna, så brukar jag rulla en liten stav som är spetsig i ändarna(5mm eller något sånt). Sen delar jag den på mitten och då har man två tänder. Som små koner typ, sätter dom på läppen och trixar till det med skulpteringsverktyget.

Haha, thats a possible explenation... Tongue

Maybe I should explain the thought behind that model. I like fluff and stick to it as much as possible at all times, but Im not a nazi so some comic bending is ok IMO. So here is the reasoning, there are Great Tauruses and then there should be calf Tauruses. There cant be Tauruses running around all over Zharr-Naggrund, so there must be stables somewhere. And the stables got limited space so they cant hold that many Tauruses, and if you are a lazy Chaos Dwarf lord and maybe get up a bit late in the morning you'll be the last one to get to the stable and then you'll have to take what you get. Even if the only Taurus left is a calf. And if you are a mighty Chaos Dwarf lord leading an amry, you might feel a bit ocward and embarresed rinding a happy calf curious of the outside world, hence the pose of the lord.
That said, the model was just a funny idea that I got, nothing serious. And there will be a new Lord on a Taurus later on, but not untill I reach 2000+ pts.Takes Hat off

Easy there Joshmohr.  That's not really a relevant discussion in this thread.

It's a very nice collection you've got so far Tjub.

Just out of curiosity do you think a goblin sized model is the tallest you could fit onto a chaos hound?  The models I was thinking of using will have legs around 5m longer than those ones.


RE: Tjubs blog (WIP Hobgobbo riders) - Border Reiver - 03-24-2009 08:02 AM

On a different note, and back on topic, with your wolfriders have you considered using Night Goblin heads instead of the standard goblins?

The hoods on the NG would look more like the traditional scythian-style hats on the older hobgoblins and they have more pointed features than the goblins do.

The legs, torso and heads are from common gobbos... I cut down the sides of the torsos(made them thinner) and removed the next, positionen the head above the shoulders instead of between.Then made clothes, belt and hat from GS.

oh crap.. faces turned out great.. have to redo 35 faces
thanks for the tipsHappy
so what are you planning for your new taurus? i like the lord one the last one, you could use him.


RE: Tjubs blog (WIP Hobgobbo riders) - This_Is_My_Boomstick!! - 03-25-2009 05:46 PM

For a bit of variety have you looked at the new Grot heads, i bought some from bitzbox and they are great, a real mean look to them

The hobbo riders on "hobhounds" look great


RE: Tjubs blog (WIP Hobgobbo riders) - tjub - 03-26-2009 05:36 PM




My first unit is done, next on the list will be to paint another 5 CD warriors bringing the unit up to 20...


RE: Tjubs blog (WIP Hobgobbo riders) - wallacer - 03-26-2009 08:37 PM

They just look fantastic.  The conversions are great, the paintjobs are great.  Even the bases look nice.

The blunderbusses actually look as if they were specifically engineered to amplify the sound of the gun firing.


RE: Tjubs blog (WIP Hobgobbo riders) - Border Reiver - 03-26-2009 11:39 PM

Love your blundrbussiers.  The individual designs on the hats are excellent and so neatly done.


RE: Tjubs blog (WIP Hobgobbo riders) - Borka - 03-27-2009 02:42 AM

I really like your wolfriders, they have character. The BB´s are great too, the shortened the gun barrels look good blunderbuss-y.


RE: Tjubs blog (WIP Hobgobbo riders) - Warlord Ghazak Gazhkull - 03-27-2009 04:27 AM

Great army you are collecting there, I like the hobbo wolfriders, I might use it for my own wolfriders so that they have cooler mounts then the current ones.

I agree with chrixter.  I saw tjub's work and knew I could do something with CD that I was happy with.  These minis are not only fantastic, but they are inspirational, too.


RE: Tjubs blog (Blunderbusses done) - Ubertechie - 03-28-2009 08:16 AM

Great looking work as usual - they look suitably mean and purposeful which I just don't think the original big hat cd's do - very impressive

RE: Tjubs blog (Blunderbusses done) - tjub - 03-30-2009 05:20 PM

Time for a update here...


First out, WIP of the hobgobbo wolf riders. The wolf is more or less done, my cellphone camera mess up the white areas such as boneplates and fangs. Sad



The latest addition to the warriors and the full unit of 20.



This might be ½ lazyness and ½ cool idea, anyhow its a unit of human slaves. Count as naked hobbos. The wont have any weapons but loads of chains, and in the back row leading the unit there will be a grom sized(more than just a beerbelly fatBig Grin) hobgobbo with a huge whip and keys etc.


RE: Tjubs blog (misc WIP update) - Ishkur Cinderhat - 03-30-2009 05:35 PM

Haha, slaves FTW! Takes Hat off The wolf riders are starting to turn out really neat! Coincidentally myself and Ghrask are currently also working on the new chaos hounds. Any tips you might want to share with regards to painting them? Happy

I really love the top of the banner, and the Chaos hound hobgobs look very nice... I wasn't sure how they'd look with those hounds.

I like how they look without the horns and just gs'ing the gap Big Grin quick Ishkur write that one down, we'll have that!! Cheers!

Your hound really did turn out nice, whats the tail from? Green Stuff? I like how you painted the muscles in the legs too. This is a real inspiration to get cracking on those hounds Takes Hat off

@two_heads_talking: They are flagelants...

The work on the hobgoblins is super good. They are colorful and characterful: This army really is something... I'll probably be snaking an idea or two here and there (but I'll put my own spin on it and will not execute as precisely as you do). I'd love to see the whole army on a tabletop in battle. Regards, BOGGO.

RE: Tjubs blog (WIP slaves) - tjub - 04-08-2009 02:37 AM

Dont know where else to post this, but its related to my army and not worth a new thread... Happy

Anyway, my brother is back from Guatemala and we see eachother about once a year or so since we never seem to live in the same town, or same country for that matter. He was into warhammer alot too when we were kids so we talk about WFB sometimes and yesterday we played our frist game in maybe 6-7 years and the funniest things happened. He played my Gobbo army and I played Chaos Dwarfs. Towards the end of the battle he had two spear chukkas that didnt have any good targets, so he said what the hell Ill fire at one of mine chukkas impaleing both my hobbo crew members. Thats marksman shooting! Also during this fine battle a unit of 3 evil and blood thirsty snotlingbases ate a full unit of 20 Hobgobbos to the last "man". Its true what they say, greenskins really hate 'dem Hobgobbs...
Good battle and loads of fun, the battle ended in a draw. Happy


RE: Tjubs blog (WIP slaves) - Grimstonefire - 04-08-2009 05:30 AM

Is there a special reason why the slaver is on 20x40mm?  Where did you get that scroll from?

Also you might want to consider slightly hollowing out the hands of the slaves where you've cut off a weapon.

Great job btw.  I always wanted to see a full unit of these guys as slaves.

I thought that nobody would want to be right next to him, since he doesnt look to be in his best mood and happy to use the whip. I just wanted to give him some space to make him look feared.
The scroll and keys are from the Flagelant box, loads of fun little bits!
Jepp, I thought about that too... Tried it on the first hobgobbo I did and it looks ok, thou I like it better to just paint it. Highlight around the fist and leave a darker are in the middle, maybe not the best explenation. But Im sure you understand what I mean. Happy


RE: Tjubs blog (WIP slaves) - Zanko - 04-08-2009 01:44 PM

Very awesome stuff! Takes Hat off

I´m vey impressed by your Hobbowolfrider and your "Slavemaster" - really great minis! Shock

Also the idea with the Human slaves as Hobbos are cool! Tongue

Like to see them all painted - I know I always want to see the minis painted but only then you/I can see all details and get stimuli! Tongue Wink

RE: Tjubs blog (WIP slaves) - tjub - 04-13-2009 06:18 AM

I was away on GothCon this weekend and found some really cheap stuff that I couldnt resist...


I'll use these as a base for both a Kollossus and a Earthshaker cannon. I'll keep you updated with WIP once I start working on them, but It'll take some time since I need to paint not build... Tongue


RE: tjubs blog - ElEndro - 04-13-2009 06:41 AM

I'm back from vacation and happy to view your blog!  I swear, your stuff is so full of character that it will look so much better than my army of original models (once done).  Excellent work!

I love the human slaves as naked hobgoblins.  It's clever.  I know what you mean about all the great bitz from the flagellant box set.  I am putting together some now (slowly).  I find myself wanting to save the good bitz (keys, torches, books, and scrolls) for other projects!  

Great work.  I wasn't sure how the wolf was going to come out, but it came out great.  I love the old gobbo heads for the hobgoblins.

I'm using the same Chaos hounds for my Hobgoblin Wolf Riders, but with the Spider Rider figures from BFSP.  the hounds look great and are excellent models...however, I wish they gave more little bits in them.

The slaves are an interesting idea. Interesting concept.

I would say both ones are from "Scotia Grendel", the Earthshaker is a part of the "dwarf heavy cannon" :

You are right on the cannon and about the golems I have, they are similar so it must be the ones not pictured. Thanks, I think they have alot of potential as a base. With some GS and plastic card they might look great as a Kolossus... Just need to finish som other stuff first, hehe... Tongue

I really like the way the slaves turned out - so glad you didn't give them any kind of weapons - other then their hands Big Grin

Really like the colours you used on these - really gives them a very dark aged look.

And then I smell that the next unit will be BCs - am I right?

RE: tjubs blog (the slaves are finished) - tjub - 04-30-2009 05:38 AM

I really enjoy WIPs and the progress converting, so here's my work from the last two days...

The Birth of Darsnakh
I got the idea for this conversion during a game with a friend when we used the "new" Chaos Dwarf magic lore from WoH#4. A Chaos Dwarf sorceror using Magma pool to transport himself and shooting the enemy in the rear. In games he will be used as a level 2 sorceror...


A before and after.


Based on the thunderer champion from the BFSP box.


Had to remove most of the model and give his left arm a new position... Tongue


Used some old zombie hands I had and a stone for him to lean on while getting out of the pool.



Filled the chainmail armour with GS (wont make the same mistake twice with giving a sorceror armour, hehe) and added a beard and mustach.


The projectile will be a flaming skull...


Mmmm, break for food and coffie. Cheers!



Added some more GS to hide the rod and make it look like the projectile is just leaving his hand. And he got the face, I had some thoughts about making him laugh but didnt really know how to do it...


This is what you dont want to see if you a nasty little creature soon to be a slave in our mines...Mad


...and then final touches to the hat. Tada!





The plan is to try to paint him as if he is half way out of the magma pool and just starting to cool down. So the lower half of him will have some magma/glowing effect, if I am able to achive it that is... Tongue


RE: tjubs blog (the slaves are finished) - Kera foehunter - 04-30-2009 06:00 AM

RE: tjubs blog (the birth of Darsnakh) - Grimstonefire - 04-30-2009 06:32 AM

This may sound stupid, but would it look bad to paint the lower body as if it was made from lava (including the beard), then blend it to normal colours as you go up?  Like the liquid metal terminator.

Great conversion, you really come up with all the funny ones here on CDO.  Snotling's are funny, but more in a warped way.  Yours are more like stap stick comedy! Happy

Your work is fantastic, and that's coming from someone who really dislikes the big hat look.

I may have to steal your hobgoblin ideas.


RE: tjubs blog (the birth of Darsnakh) - Bassman - 04-30-2009 08:46 AM

Hi,
another great work from you.
My compliments. Takes Hat off

I want to give you a small suggestion:
Sometimes you overdo with beard. I know powerfull dwarfs have long beards but yours cover the entire body covering every detail. Sometimes your creations are better from the rear than from the front. If you want to keep the long beard, why do not elaborate the beard a little bit? Add rings, jewels and so.. you proved many times o able to sculpt almost everything.
Hope you do not misunderstand me, I'm trying to give a positive criticsm to a fellow Chaos Dwarf! Hashut!
Regards,
Bassman

P.S. I appreciate you correct the armor this time! Wink

RE: tjubs blog (the birth of Darsnakh) - Hashut's Blessing - 04-30-2009 03:01 PM

Well, looks like I'm going to have to go back and sift through 20 pages of posts to see the rest. Due to not having much time, I've missed most of this blog so far. Still, I;d like to say that the sorcerer was an excellent concept, pulled off brilliatnly. I love the flame leaving his hand and the flame trailing the skull: makes it seem it's literally just left his hand and the "exit hole" as it were is sealing up still. I hope you CAN pull off the lighting effect again. it'll be on a much larger area this time as well, but it'll definitely be worth it. Have you conidered having a small cooled area as being like cracked cooling magma, as though the lava cools, and almost flakes away from him or cools and transforms into him? he IS bore of stone, after all Wink I can't wait to see what other ingenuities you can come up with!


RE: tjubs blog (the birth of Darsnakh) - Border Reiver - 04-30-2009 09:57 PM

tjub - that is a fantastic piece of sculpture - no two ways about it.


RE: tjubs blog (the birth of Darsnakh) - tjub - 05-02-2009 04:06 AM

@Bassman: Hmm, I know what you mean... Ill have to think about that, just that I like them with big beards, maybe its me and my complicated relation to facial hair. Tongue

@Swiss: Me too, thou I have to paint those Hobgobolin wolfriders first. They took forever... Puuha...

@HB: I thought more of him getting up from a pool, just cooling down... So not that he melted away and then reemerged, rather took a swim through the lava. If he was going to transfrom from lava to sorceror I think I would have had to do him differntly. In my mind I have a plan for painting him, just hope it turns out as good irl. Tongue

@All: Thanks for the support and positive critisism!


RE: tjubs blog (the bigger the better) - tjub - 05-02-2009 04:25 AM

I did someting similar to "the birth of Darsnakh" for my new hero/lord character. The old one is still ok, but I wanted to be able to field more characters and to be able to focus on either magic or brute force.



The base for the my new here/lord, basic dwarf warrior(most of him cut awayTongue), a thumbtac and horns from a tzeentch banner top.


Added the armour...



...and the hat.



He had to do with shorter beard, cant go running around all over The Zharr-Nagrund with an oiled beard unless you are a sorceror. Something tells me they are inflameable.



Components for the banner, two bucklers and a backpack from the flagelant box. Great box btw, have to say it again, loads of stuff.



The easiest way to do fire, start with some cones.




Finished...


...and ready to paint. Too bad I've promised myself to finish my Hobgoblin wolfriders first. Tongue

Wow, nothing to criticize abut this guy. He is very cool. I appreciate most the clever idea for the banner, in style with "classic" 5th ed dwarfs but original and "fresh". I love it.

Agree, that was the first thin I thought when I saw it... Happy

I just gave him a nosejob and redid the nose, not as round anymore.

I haven't commented on this blog yet, but needless to say it's all extremely impressive. I particularly like the Sorcerer emerging from the magma pool - while Willmark deserves most of the credit for the spell lore, I pitched in with some refinements, particularly on that spell and it's always a buzz to seem someone create something based on your work.


RE: tjubs blog (the bigger hat the better) - Hazkar - 05-02-2009 07:35 AM

once again nice stuff,man
the sorcerer is great,real hot stuff
your new lord looks sweet,imo the horns are a little bit to big,but great sculpting
thumbs up


RE: tjubs blog (the bigger hat the better) - Gundini - 05-03-2009 06:35 AM

That is a huge hat.


RE: tjubs blog (the bigger hat the better) - Ishkur Cinderhat - 05-03-2009 07:16 AM

He's got to have a servo-powered hat holder to be able to wield that hat, but it sure looks impressive! Happy

Indeed it was a very good collaboration on that.

I are with Thommy very cool that you did this, let me know when it is complete, we might have to run an article about this in WoH.


RE: tjubs blog (the bigger hat the better) - Jaakko - 05-03-2009 08:33 AM

Your work is absolutely amazing, tjub. I've been reading this blog for a long time but never posted. I'm very impressed by your work and it gives me the motivation I need to get back to work on my own army.
Bra jobbat och fortsätt på samma sätt!

@Ishkur Cinderhat: Hehe, there could be anything under that hat. Happy

@Willmark: Sure, Ill notify you when he is painted. Thou it might take some time...


RE: tjubs blog (the bigger hat the better) - apocalypstia - 05-07-2009 03:31 PM

i am really liking that new hero/lord with the uber hat. I never really liked the big hat guys but your works are just making them come alive for me. Very creative, and a nice twisting blend of styles with that banner.


RE: tjubs blog (the bigger hat the better) - Thorne - 05-07-2009 05:16 PM

Damn,,,, If I had a ninja outfit, I think id end up stealing your whole load of ideas bud. Love the big hat work !

Sure, feel free to do as you like. Thou its more fun if you'd just use some ideas rather than make a copy of it, it gets a bit boring when many blogs here on CDO shows the same conversions but by different ppl. I posted the WIP steps for you to see how I did and thought, mostyl because I enjoy others WIPs alot. But also for you to get inspiration and ideas... But if you want to use it as a guide its ok too. Happy

The banner is from the flagelant box, if I forgot to write that in the original post...


RE: tjubs blog (the bigger hat the better) - tjub - 05-10-2009 03:39 PM

WIP without any GS of Astragoth, High priest of Hashut






RE: tjubs blog (WIP Astragoth) - Perturabo - 05-10-2009 04:00 PM

Astragoth looks good so far. Where did the legs and things come from?


RE: tjubs blog (WIP Astragoth) - This_Is_My_Boomstick!! - 05-10-2009 04:09 PM

looks like Necron legs


RE: tjubs blog (WIP Astragoth) - jolpis - 05-10-2009 04:34 PM

This_Is_My_Boomstick!! Wrote:

Yes they are, Ive used two necron warriors and a dwarf for this. Except the chimeny which come from an old confrontation model I had lying around...

Since he is the oldest Chaos Dwarf alaive he will get a long beard covering most of the torso with just the feet pointing out underneath. I think he got the marionett look I was aiming for, since he cant move his limbs the machine is moving his arms...Respect to the Hat!


RE: tjubs blog (WIP Astragoth) - Jaakko - 05-10-2009 05:29 PM

Really impressive work there! I'll look forward to see him finished Big Grin
Although I hope his hat will be heavily decorated; he's worth it!


RE: tjubs blog (WIP Astragoth) - apocalypstia - 05-11-2009 05:04 PM

very cool adaptation of Astragoth. I didnt realize the marionette stylings til you mentioned them, i thought of it more of a mechanically assisted bodywork. Guess i need to step up my efforts to find my old cd informations and review. lol. Inventive, festive and quite an inspiration!


RE: tjubs blog (WIP Astragoth) - Kera foehunter - 05-11-2009 05:35 PM

that is another great project tjubs


RE: tjubs blog (WIP Astragoth) - Braki Flamebeard - 05-12-2009 06:45 PM

Wow, it took me two days to read through this whole blog, but it was two days well spent. This is brilliant work, and I must admit that after seeing your army in the showcase I did copy the pin hat idea. However it has a little twist on it, so hopefully you won't mind. My favourite is the Lammasu, I love how creative people can get and that is one of the best I've seen! The 'naked' hobgobs is a great idea too. The bull centaurs are great, although, if you don't mind me saying so, I'd think about changing the position of the lower bodies. Just so they don't all look the same. And the scimitars are a great idea! Who says dwarfs only use axes and hammers? Brilliant army so far, can't wait to see Astrogoth finished.
Big Hats for the win!


RE: tjubs blog (WIP Astragoth) - grupax - 05-13-2009 03:35 AM

just an idea, but i would put all feet (not entire leg) in one direction - now it will be weard to see him walk in a direction with his rear leggs pointing backwards...
other then that and taking your previous work in consideration, i'm sure he'll look great.

RE: tjubs blog (WIP Astragoth) - Perturabo - 05-13-2009 05:56 AM

Hopefully It'll end up being a bit more sinister than that. The Exorcist makes me laugh! Tongue Wink

This is looking like an excellent update of the classic Astrogoth. Looking forward to seeing it painted.


RE: tjubs blog (WIP Astragoth) - Skink - 05-13-2009 11:37 AM

That's a very nice idea, can't wait to see him finished (n painted).

Why don't you paint his limbs in a gray colour and blend it to the robes??? It will give the idea of an advanced status of the stone curse


RE: tjubs blog (WIP Astragoth) - Perturabo - 05-13-2009 12:02 PM

That's a point. Do you intend to paint him a grey rocky colour, or shiny black like obsidian?


RE: tjubs blog (WIP Astragoth) - Pyro Stick - 05-13-2009 12:48 PM

Using necron parts was a cool idea. He looks like he is going to turn out very cool.


RE: tjubs blog (WIP Astragoth) - tjub - 05-17-2009 06:31 AM


All bow for Astragoth High Priest of Hasthut!






Had to move the location of his photos, so I re-post all of them here...




Added some more GS. The hat seemed to be too small, so I changed it before painting to a more sutiable one for the High Priest...





Tried to get a "stoneish" tone to his flesh and painted his beard a little bit more grey.


RE: tjubs blog (WIP Astragoth) - Kera foehunter - 05-17-2009 06:41 AM

Bravo we should stickie this !!!!!!
tjub all i can say is it perfect !!!!!!!!!!


RE: tjubs blog (WIP Astragoth) - Pyro Stick - 05-17-2009 06:45 AM

That turned out very nice. I like how his flesh looks like the stone is spreading. The only complaint i have is that the arm thats not holding the hammer looks like its missing something. The original astragoth had a massive armoured fist as well as a hammer so to me it looks like its incomplete, Maybe you could try bulking his fist out a bit with some armour plating or make it look like its casting a spell or something.


RE: tjubs blog (WIP Astragoth) - jolpis - 05-17-2009 06:46 AM

wow!. i would buy this over the regular astrogoth!


RE: tjubs blog (WIP Astragoth) - tjub - 05-17-2009 07:03 AM

Someone at WoH thought my CDs deserved a whole page last issue, but most of the pics were from our painting area with a cellphone camera. So here are some better ones of my other finished units.

Warriors and hero


Blunderbusses


Bull Centaurs


Hobgoblins



Slaves, count as Hobgoblins


Balistas




Hero




Sorceror


RE: tjubs blog (Astragoth finished & army photos) - tjub - 05-17-2009 07:27 AM

@ jolpis & Kera foehunter: Thanks! Happy

@ Pyro Stick: Hmm, I know what you mean. Thought about it too when I did him, but decided it wasnt really needed since he is still a sorceror and not a fighting machine... Tongue And I wanted to show as much flesh as possible to get the "turning to stone" effect.


RE: tjubs blog (Astragoth finished & army photos) - Skink - 05-17-2009 09:30 AM

W0ell, needless to say awesome job man. However, I still get stick to my idea: you should have painted Astragoth  in stone colors.

Don't get me wrong dude, the idea is fantastic, the paintjob flawless (as always), everything looks bloody good (and makes me enviousMad). But he is just... Too "bright" and "healty" to resemble the High Priest of Hashut. You know what? his limbs doesn't show any "problem" to justify the use of a machine. This way the marionette look that you aimed for isn't fully achieved... A grey or white beard maybe???

A part this minor critic I bow to your magnificent army, to your modeling genius and brush mastery!


RE: tjubs blog (Astragoth finished & army photos) - Dino - 05-17-2009 11:19 AM

Cool. Now lets see more.

RE: tjubs blog (Astragoth finished & army photos) - Braki Flamebeard - 05-17-2009 12:37 PM

Great peice, starting to wish i hadn't bought astrgoth. I do agree that he does look a bit too healthy, and he still has a black beard. But overall flawless work otherwise.


RE: tjubs blog (Astragoth finished & army photos) - Skink - 05-24-2009 06:20 PM

Tjub, dunno if someone already asked you before, but I need to say that your "fire" is amongst the best that I ever seen.
There's a chance to have a tutorial on how you sculpt\paint it?


RE: tjubs blog (Astragoth finished & army photos) - tjub - 05-25-2009 12:37 AM

Thanks! I had never used GS before, other than filling gaps, when I started with my Chaos Dwarfs. Read a tutorial somewhere on fire, but I dont remember where right now... But the basics were, do small cones to get the shape and work from there and remember to keep your tool wet at all time!




I just woke up and dont remember all the names of the paints I use, all GW or Vallejo. But I start with painting all the flames white, and then buld it up form there with sunburst yellow, golden yellow, light orange, blood red, a darker red(gore or something similar I think) and then add hull red on the tip of the flames...


RE: tjubs blog (Astragoth finished & army photos) - Skink - 05-25-2009 01:12 AM

Ok thanks! Very helpful (and fast!)... I had some problem in creating fire effect, will definetly try out your "way to do" Cheers!Cheers!Cheers!


RE: tjubs blog (Astragoth finished & army photos) - Kera foehunter - 05-25-2009 06:37 AM

I am going to recommend you for a showcase gallery tjub, not sure what the other staff think but I reckon you deserve one. Wink

Only thing I would change on astragoth is to give him a white beard.  He is supposed to be ancient and it would help him stand out more.

Well since everybody seem to have an opinion on Astragoth not being to old and grumpy looking I might have to redo some of his painting, it'll take some time thou case Ive got loads of other stuff to paint asap.Unsure


RE: tjubs blog (Astragoth finished & army photos) - Braki Flamebeard - 05-26-2009 08:13 AM

Quick question, whats Astrogoths hat made from? Also hope you don't mind me using the pin hats as well, they're just so easy to use.

Sure use whatever ideas you want from this blog thats the reason its here, the best feedback you can get is to see that someone used your ideas in their own work.  Thou direct copys of the same models/convertions is a bit boring. Wink

His hat is made from the top of a pencil...


...the horns are from a Beastmen banner top. The rest is just a plain warhammer skull and Green stuff.

About time for an update here, dont what to feel the wrath of Hashut for been a lazy slave...

My Hobgoblin Wolfriders are FINALLY done, I started to paint these a few months ago. For some reason they were reall boring and I just couldnt finish them. Untill they had stod there on the painting table mocking me for ages and I realised that they would go away by them selfs. Atleast now there is peace in my mind and I might get back to do some more fun and creative stuff for the Chaos Dwarfs. Happy





I also started to add small bits of WFB to my Earthshaker to get the right feeling. Got some good ideas and plans for this peice... But it'll have to wait untill I've painted my GH#9 entry.



RE: tjubs blog (Hobgoblin Wolfriders are finished) - Hrothgar Goldgreed - 06-11-2009 10:41 AM

What IS that? A Forgeworld Dwarf Flamecannon would be my guess as it's very similiar to GW's metal one ..

Love your army so far, great style, impressive sculpting and nice painting Takes Hat off


RE: tjubs blog (Hobgoblin Wolfriders are finished) - Dino - 06-11-2009 11:01 AM

Very nice job on the wolf riders. I have to get working on my chaos dwarfs again very soon. Can't wait to see that earthshaker painted up. And good luck with your GH#9 entry.

WIP of my Earthshaker and crew, there will be three Chaos Dwarves. The rest is just there to look good... Tongue I have do something about the flames on the Hobgobbo on the barrel, looks more lika a paintbrush than torch as it is.






Since I had these in my phone too I might as well show of another of my retarded projects(wip), maybe I can get some kinda of special treatment by Willmark in his future Empire. We got Deathstar...

RE: tjubs blog (Earthshaker WIP) - tjub - 06-28-2009 05:59 PM

Hmm, just struck me that none of my CDs have any eyebrows. I might have to add them to the existing models to get them to look even more comic, what do you think? Good or bad idea? They would be mostly on the lower part of the hat, under the pin. Think that Ill have to do a concept to paint before I decide...


RE: tjubs blog (Earthshaker WIP) - Thorne - 06-28-2009 06:30 PM

Hmmmmm eyebrows I that if you were to add them to the existing models and new models to come then you would maybe detract from the comedy element making them less comic, Bad idea in my humble opinion besides I love and so does everyone else that visits this forum so its a big fat no from me bud

RE: tjubs blog - Khan! - 06-28-2009 07:20 PM

I think there's such a thing as too much detail.  Your models look great already - it might be a waste to worry about as small a thing as eyebrows when they are fine without them.


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 06-29-2009 07:51 AM

You are unanimous, no eyebrows! So Ill leave them as they are for now, might have to try on some future model just to se how it will look thou. Anyway, here is my new Lord painted...






... updated my Astragoth model, now with stony feet and legs and a more ancient look.



Found some really cool lave dice to keep the theme. Hashut bless the dice!



RE: tjubs blog (New Lord painted) - Loki - 06-29-2009 08:00 AM

Great update tjub, the new lord looks great and the fire at the top of the banners looks amazing, i like the new look for Astragoth the stony feet are great and i like how you have painted the hands slightly turning to stone as well , the dice are nice as well i wonder if there is a company out there that would make a set with the rune of Hashut as the 6 Evil idea


RE: tjubs blog (New Lord painted) - slev - 06-29-2009 08:25 AM

Looks damn good.

I don't care for the stony feet myself, as he isn't exactly barefoot Wink


RE: tjubs blog (New Lord painted) - Border Reiver - 06-29-2009 11:26 AM

Tjub - the character's back banner is very nice, and Astrogoth looks suitably dangerous.

But do you have to make the horns so OTT?  (Seriously, keep up the excellent work)

Astragoth is fantastic, as is your new Lord.
You do like big horns don't you?


RE: tjubs blog (New Lord painted) - apocalypstia - 06-29-2009 05:11 PM

new lord is nice looking, he be one horny dawi... lol. Very proud of his horn'age he seems, a definate way to gore one's way to alpha dwarf domination.. Excellent character and personalization thru out your evergrowing minions, really liking the banner on that lord too.

Great Stuffs.


RE: tjubs blog (New Lord painted) - Grazhnakk - 06-30-2009 01:30 AM

I think I like your Astrogoth better than the GW model. Not as professionally polished, but LOTS more schwerve!

And the lord's hat is likewise fantastic, and in no way over the top. Okay, maybe it's over the top, but it's a bighat lord, who should have a Big. Hat.

Nicely done!


RE: tjubs blog (New Lord painted) - Warlord Ghazak Gazhkull - 06-30-2009 05:08 AM

RE: tjubs blog (New Lord painted) - clam - 06-30-2009 05:09 AM

Now, that's what I call a Horned Hat - he must have a bull's neck to wear that - but then again he is one of Hashut's chosen, so if anyone can bear it, it must be a Chaos Dwarf, right?

Awesome work, tjub Takes Hat off - again Wink


RE: tjubs blog (New Lord painted) - Skink - 06-30-2009 08:49 AM

Now THAT IS Astragoth! I love this mini man, you came up with a great looking model!!!! Stony particulars and grey beard really give the idea! At last you can use him to represent a lv4 Sorcerer!

The Lord is great too, even if I already said it: Your army is so freakin cool!

If only I could - have been unable to paint anything for about 4 weeks dued to an injured shoulder. Have only just picked up the brushes within the last few week - but have dedicated my time to a certain 4 legged creature. And I must also admit, that a certain newly released codex - made me bring out the Green Stuff again Wink


RE: tjubs blog (New Lord painted) - Groznit Goregut - 07-06-2009 01:33 PM

Fantastic work again.  I love the wolf riders.  The GW wolves just fall short.  

I love the earth shaker.  I'd like to see that painted.  The various crew are excellent.  

I love the big horned warlord.  Maybe it's the greenskin in me, too.  I love the "over the top" horns.  Evil idea

RE: tjubs blog (New Lord painted) - tjub - 07-07-2009 06:13 AM

Just painted up the Earthshaker and used it in my first game, me like! Thou I must admit that some of the older faces of my CDs have to be redone(the commander with the cannon). I prefer the more comic look with bigger noses...






...finally Darsnakh, who has been ready for some time but he had to wait untill the WoH#5 was released. Tongue






RE: tjubs blog (Earthshaker cannon painted) - Jaakko - 07-07-2009 07:54 AM

I love your Earthshaker crew! Especially the hobbo on the top of it!
Really great job painting Darsnakh; the magma pool effect is wonderful!
Keep up the good work Tjubs, and I hope we'll see a painted Kolossus sometimes soon...


RE: tjubs blog (Earthshaker cannon painted) - Bassman - 07-07-2009 07:54 AM

Wow, I prefer more serious painting and modelling but yours are great. I love how you paint lava and fire, your sorcerer really looks like he is popping out of lava.
Great model for the shaker. Respect to the Hat!


RE: tjubs blog (Earthshaker cannon painted) - Hazkar - 07-07-2009 10:07 AM

WOW WOW WOW!!!
this earthshaker is one great mini,everything on it is so cool...the painting...the crew...wow
and your sorcerer...how great is that painting?im so jealous of your skills

better watch your back,some day i will send some sneaky gitz around to knock you out and steal your army Tongue Wink


RE: tjubs blog (Earthshaker cannon painted) - Swissdictator - 07-07-2009 10:16 AM

AWESOME! Amazing work! Very nicely done!

The crew looks great, the earth shaker diabolical, and the grinning Hobgob is hilarious.


RE: tjubs blog (Earthshaker cannon painted) - clam - 07-07-2009 03:35 PM

I was hoping for a Kollosus - but an Earthshaker will do.

Great job - as always - really like your (hob)goblinslaves. The brave guy sitting on the cannon looks so cool - but I guess he'll only do that ones Big Grin

And the firery Sorcerer .... he is awesome - have to check WoH for more, now.

:Cheers

it's all looking great, this plog is so inspiring!


RE: tjubs blog (Earthshaker cannon painted) - apocalypstia - 07-07-2009 04:55 PM

the earthshaker came out beautifully (as if there would be any doubt with your works... lol), luv the flaming skull from Darsnakh's hand. He is turning to stone isnt he? Maybe my eyes are playing trickies on me... sure seems like a stoney brow and that right hand?

is he coming from the lava or is the crust breaking under the strain of his stone body threatening to imerse in the life blood of Hashut below? or maybe its a secret held within... muwhahahahaha.

Xcellent and inspiring as usual.


RE: tjubs blog (Earthshaker cannon painted) - Thommy H - 07-07-2009 05:21 PM

He's using the Magma Pool spell from WoH 4. Really good work all round, tjub. Is it too much to ask to get a full army shot at some point?

just one question how did you acheve that lava look on your wizard?

Not a big fan of the Willow move, except the evil guy with the skull helmet, and it was a long time since I saw it so cant say I remember a kettle monster. Hmm... Tongue

The lava on his body was painted much in the same way as on the bases, just inverted. Starting with white and then highlighted with yellow - orange - red - darker red - brown red - grey...


RE: tjubs blog (Earthshaker cannon painted) - tjub - 07-09-2009 08:21 AM



Tada, the last converted CD is painted. Originally I did the riders with armour, but since someone pointed out that they cant wear armour it really started to bug me and so I decided to redo him.

Edit: Hmm, noticed that these pics was more than a little blurred... Sad


RE: tjubs blog - Skink - 07-09-2009 08:29 AM

DOn't worry about the pics quality dude, here's another beautiful model for us. I start to get addicted to your updates man...


RE: tjubs blog - Dino - 07-09-2009 10:49 AM

Pretty cool. Happy  New pics would be great! Wink


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 07-09-2009 11:17 AM

@Dino: That might be so, but its a chaos dwarf twisted by the power of chaos to this monster. I never pictured them all to look exactly the same...

@Xander: There will be better ones later, when the rider is done. And my flatmate who own the camera is back from Japan...


RE: tjubs blog - Border Reiver - 07-09-2009 11:54 AM

Hi, very cool bull centaur. I believed it was yours to win GH IX. Cheers!
Anyway, is he an hero or a BSb, I was curious.
What I like the most of your minis are the glowing eyes of shields. When I will come time for my fighting heros, I'd copy your idea. Tongue Wink

RE: tjubs blog (Kolossus & GH#9) - tjub - 07-14-2009 10:43 AM

He is a hero, or maybe a lord sometime. But Ive used him as a hero in games recently to beef up my Centaurs. Happy

I didnt take many photos of him before he was done. But here are a few...





RE: tjubs blog (Kolossus & GH#9) - Xander - 07-14-2009 11:18 AM

Awesome Kollossus! Big Grin

And congrats on your Silver Hat!


RE: tjubs blog (Kolossus & GH#9) - tjub - 07-15-2009 05:00 PM


A Bull Centaur with a face job, the plan is to tuch up most of my CDs to this standard for the face. I do prefer the bigger noses and comic look so Ive set a task to renew my warriors. Only about 30 of them needs to be done.

...and my Lammasu is painted and ready for battle. He will be namned Swissammasu. Tongue There will be better pics once my flatmate is back from Japan. But I took a buch with my cellphone camera.








And one for size.


Now I will just have to figure out how to use him, with just beeing a total points give away.


RE: tjubs blog (Kolossus & GH#9) - Swissdictator - 07-15-2009 05:04 PM

Very cool indeed! Looks like it will also be easier to deal with as the wings look like they won't be in the way as much.

I love the name too.

The Bull Centaur looks very cool too. It's not often a Dwarf... albeit a mutated Chaos Dwarf... is taller than most opponents. Wink

RE: tjubs blog - Thommy H - 08-08-2009 06:17 AM

Fantastic Lammasu. I think my favourite thing about it is that, unlike most "use a different monster for a Lammasu/Taurus" conversions, it actually exactly fits the description of the original model. It has hooves on its hind legs and claws at the front, a mace tail, and a big bearded head, but it looks totally different.

RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 09-16-2009 03:34 AM

Im not done with my Soviet sailors yet, but I just had to do something different today. Once back to CDs Ill be adding two more units of slaves herded by Hobgoblin masters, fun units to do and great to have in a game(count as naked hobbos). To get som variation in the units Ive made two Ogre slaves as unit fillers.


Simply removed the weapons and trimmed the hands to look more like a fist. The chains are from the Bretonian peasants box since they are bigger and more likely to hold an ogre. Tongue


Im really pleased with the look my slave units will have...

RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 11-29-2009 11:55 AM

Ive been really focused on FoW the last months, but now Im back with some CDs. I doubt they will be produced at the same rate as before as I have alot less spare time now but hopefully this blog will get a bit more attention. As said in another thread I wasnt saticfied at all with my army, as Ive made alot of progress the last year with GS skills so Ive decided to start over. So, this is the start of my new army. Ill keep a few characters, like the hero with the big horns and my lammasu, but the rest will be redone. Only exception is the Bull Centaurs who will just ge a face lift. Happy

Hopefully Ill be more saticfied with my army this time. If anyone would be intrested in buying any characters och units send me a PM, itll be more or less the "normal" unit price.

I agree that your GS'ing skills have come way up in the last year (not that they weren't high to begin with), but to scrap a whole army....  Your army is still better looking than most.  I'd keep it, because by the time you've completed the army your GS skills will have increased again, and then you'll feel compelled to get rid of the new ones, and the vicious cycle will continue.


RE: tjubs blog - Kera foehunter - 11-29-2009 12:53 PM

well T-jubs i wish you all the luck !!  i know all about a out dated army too
so are you staying with hats ??
or are you joining my quest of pirates  Yaaaaaaaaaarrrrg


RE: tjubs blog - Loki - 11-30-2009 05:40 AM

Great work as always mate , i cant wait to see this force grow in size Happy


RE: tjubs blog - Skink - 11-30-2009 12:41 PM

I heard someone in the corridor shouting "and the Kolossus?". It wasn't me, you can be certain about it Tongue

What about it? I will not keep it... Or atleast it will not be a part of the new army.


RE: tjubs blog - Bassman - 12-01-2009 09:13 AM

Ambitious project! Sometimes I wonder to restart to paint my old minis but then I realized I'd be crazy. I do not have enought time!!!

Are you going to plan a new GT army list or a "classic" Ravening Hordes list?


RE: tjubs blog - Willmark - 12-01-2009 02:49 PM

Holy crap you're going to start over again???? That's crazy insane, look forward to the results.


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 12-01-2009 05:02 PM

@Willmark & Bassman: Jepp, I know but what can I say. If I aint saticfied I wont use it, I can be a bit stubborn sometimes... Tongue Anyway, its not the finished army Im after here its rather the process. The goal is to have atleast 2000pts before the summer, since FoW EW will be released in July and Im rather sure I cant resist some new soviet armies. Tongue

Btw: Im going for a classic RH list. Again...

Whaaaaaaaaaa No way thats a huge shame figuritively! . I so wanted ot see that big bad boy painted up and compair it to my own ...

Its a huge huge shame were not going to see it again Sad I do hope that you may change your mind but I must say that I wish you good luck. I cant sculpt with g/s or miliput half as good as you and I am well impressed with my little Tjub inspired force. Even if perhaps your not quite so impressed with your own as we are.


RE: tjubs blog - Borador - 12-03-2009 08:22 AM

A pity you are getting rid of this army, but on the other hand, now you can join the Chaos Darf Aviators ^.^ Blimps, airplanes, bombers, zeppelins, gyrocopters gone crazy, and goggles Tongue

Looking forward to seeing your new work! Surprise me with the theme of your army(and its looks obviously)! Tongue

( Is it going to be like this or are you going to create an army with a special theme like pirates or mutants or crazed inventors or god knows what else you could come up with? )

Good luck with it! Takes Hat off


RE: tjubs blog - Skink - 12-04-2009 02:23 PM

Well, a part my curiosity about the Kolossus (When you said that you are not going to paint it I actually cried), your dwarf with GW represent a good start indeed. I like his grim expression, your skills with GS are surely increased!


RE: tjubs blog - it's coming this way! - 12-09-2009 09:32 AM

Wow!  Absolutely inspirational!


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 12-11-2009 09:08 AM

Started to pimp up my Bull Centaurs and the Black Orks are finally based and ready to get some paint... Happy





RE: tjubs blog - Loki - 12-11-2009 10:38 AM

Looking good Happy how many more bull centaurs are you going to add to the unit ?


RE: tjubs blog - Skink - 12-11-2009 02:53 PM

Like the Black Orcs. What did you changed in the BC??? I can see smaller noses and bubbles in the lava, am I missing something???

Skink Wrote:

Ah, hehe... Those are just a WIP of them. The only thing Ive done is to remove the nose and old hat and glued on a new push pin. Just wanted to show that there is actually some progress for the army this time. Thought I should try to update atleast every 1-2 weeks... Wink


RE: tjubs blog - Bassman - 12-12-2009 10:51 AM

I noticed you get rid of the standard bearer in bullcentaurs. It sounds to me it comes from games experience, isn't it?
I'm longing to see what is going to happen.....

No, the banner will be back on the BC. Thou Im looking for a new one, less dwarfish...


RE: tjubs blog - Willmark - 12-14-2009 09:59 AM

It's weird to think his "cast off" army was/is better then almost everyone elses, mine included.


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 12-19-2009 08:02 PM

Time for an update before I go to visit my parents for x-mas...

The Black Orcs are done, didnt bother to make the lava bases to match up this time, since I never ranked them up properly anyway... Tongue





RE: tjubs blog - Grimstonefire - 12-19-2009 08:27 PM

Nice job on the metals!  I'm impressed you got them ranking well.  I've struggled to get mine to rank.

What unit size are you aiming for?


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 12-20-2009 04:12 AM

I was only going go a unit of ten, if they are bigger I think they might be too much of a threat and shot to peices... Sad
Jupp, about the ranking. I built them one at the time to make sure that they did fit. The rocks helps alot too since I could change the height too...


RE: tjubs blog - Snotling - 12-20-2009 01:27 PM

that's a nice colour sheme and I like the ogre weapons. also a good reason to make just ten of them... i never saw it from that point of view Happy


RE: tjubs blog - osomo4000 - 01-01-2010 06:57 PM

i love your minis, they are my favourite chaos dwarfs of all i ever seen


RE: tjubs blog - Kera foehunter - 01-02-2010 06:17 AM

Looks great i also like how you painted the ammor . Nice bases they fit well together to give the lava effect


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 01-02-2010 06:22 AM

Here are my first "new" CD unit to go to the paint table. All wear the same hats and got mixed armour...




...gave the pimped beard look a try on the unit champ, not 100% saticfied but its good enough. The beard got a bit too short IMO. Happy


RE: tjubs blog - Borador - 01-02-2010 07:11 AM

nice work on those warrios! your beards look awesome Big Grin really like the close-up shot on those

keep it up Cheers!


RE: tjubs blog - osomo4000 - 01-02-2010 07:43 AM

the champ is very cool and the best at your minis is the hat


RE: tjubs blog - Border Reiver - 01-02-2010 01:16 PM

As always man, an awesome job of sculpting.  The beard length looks right for the unit, maybe go for a really long beard for the elite unit?


RE: tjubs blog - Kera foehunter - 01-03-2010 12:45 PM

They look great !!  the faces are so cool T-jubs what a great start to your new army


RE: tjubs blog - Loki - 01-04-2010 05:23 AM

Great looking unit, cant wait to see them painted up the huge standard works really well Happy


RE: tjubs blog - Skink - 01-06-2010 12:24 PM

Nah, the champion's beard is beautiful. Like it. Someone said you previously that your models looked better from the back 'cause of the beard covering all of their front. I like your new style, go for it. The banner is an Ogre's one isn't it???


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 01-12-2010 02:56 PM

@Skink: Jepp it is...

Not the best photos, for some reason they got a bit too bright... But atleast its an update, first 5 new warriors painted.





RE: tjubs blog - Kera foehunter - 01-12-2010 07:45 PM

They look great i love the brown and red colors and there boots PERFECT


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 01-14-2010 12:59 PM

I had been toying with the idea of converting one of the new skaven clan warriors and a goblin to make a hobgoblin. And when I saw CheTralfaras excelent result the it was easily decided... Though I think Ill save the furr on arms and legs, the plan is to paint them more pale/yellowish and with black hair.





RE: tjubs blog - dncswlf - 01-14-2010 01:07 PM

Nice!  that does look good... hmmm....


RE: tjubs blog - Skink - 01-18-2010 08:25 AM

The Hobbo of the clan is indeed a nice idea for beautiful greenskinz. However you know what? Looking at Che Tralfara's minis I noticed that they have all the same position. Not very dynamic... Though this will suit a whole rank'n'file unit it isn't the best choice for a charachter IMO (as you want it to stand out from normal troops)... If I have to be honest I like more your old Hobbo Overseer (for the reasons above).

Anyway your GS skills are improved indeed. The Dwarf Warriors are well executed. Are you going to make a unit equipped with Hand weapons & Shield as well? (as I liked the swords on your older unit).


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 01-25-2010 04:52 PM

@Skink: Havent decided yet, its that or another one with twohanded weapons...

Another 5 warriors are ready, ink champ and musician.





This unit will include warriors on lavabases as well later on...


RE: tjubs blog - Bolg - 01-25-2010 05:10 PM

velly nice yes (:


RE: tjubs blog - Loki - 01-25-2010 06:50 PM

Looking great already!
Keep it up =D


RE: tjubs blog - Skink - 02-03-2010 09:31 AM

Well done with the hero's base. he's surely standing outShock

Kudos also for the lava flow. The bubbles are a nice addition


RE: tjubs blog - Dead Kennedy - 02-03-2010 01:15 PM

Have you chopped up any new hobgoblin prototypes? That Skaven one was looking good.

The unit of Chaos Dwarfs are looking great. I find your models have a unified cartoon-inspired look that manages to stay fresh with every new unit. Keep up the great army.


RE: tjubs blog - Loki - 02-04-2010 05:00 AM

Great work once again mate, please keep this great work coming Happy


RE: tjubs blog - Kera foehunter - 02-04-2010 06:58 PM

love the champion!! love the big horns


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 02-05-2010 01:16 AM

The model with the big horns is actually a hero, one of the few models I saved from my old army and just pimped out a bit... There will be more stones and lava on the bases to come in that unit, not that big thou, but he wont look that lonely. The champ is the one pointing his axe. Happy

@Dead Kennedy: Thanks! No progress is slow, too much work and real life in between. But the aim is to finish this unit + my entry for GHXI before its a FoW break again...

Btw, the big stone base in the first pic is for something huge and wonderfull, but work has been slow...


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 02-18-2010 03:36 AM

Finished another five warriors, progress is a bit slow here... Sad



Btw, as you can see I decided to go with a smaller banner than the original I had planned.


RE: tjubs blog - Bolg - 02-18-2010 04:20 AM

I like the banner (and the rest of the unit) very much. but the hooks on the side of the banner are a bit much.


RE: tjubs blog - Loki - 02-18-2010 05:02 AM

Great work on the unit, its looks ace Happy the bases look great as well as the banner, i like the way that you have just done the top to points of the chaos star works really well Happy


RE: tjubs blog - Borador - 02-19-2010 09:01 AM

Looking great, keep 'm coming!

like the paintjob on the flag, it looks cool =]


RE: tjubs blog - Skink - 02-20-2010 04:34 AM

The addition of bubbles on the lava (and paint it like its oozing from the base) are superb. It looks like you are paying more attention in painting your CDs, they are very clean. Don't get me wrong, your old army is ace nonetheless, but these warriors are great


RE: tjubs blog - Willmark - 02-25-2010 10:01 AM

As always damn cool stuff.

To be honest however I'm having a hard time seeing difference between your previous VD warriors and these; am I missing something as they are both damn cool.

Hmm, well I guess the difference isnt that huge. But I wasnt saticfied with them so there was not much to do than start all over. During the work of my 1st CD army I figured out how I wanted them too look and the theme/feeling for the army. Happy


RE: tjubs blog - Willmark - 02-25-2010 12:36 PM

@GreatEscape_13: Thanks! Happy

Here are som better photos of my GHXI entry, it was not a hungry sorcerer as someone wrote. But a Chaos Dwarf Sorcerer casting Doomroar! Tongue









RE: tjubs blog - Snotling - 03-14-2010 04:51 PM

I really like him, I allways did. He looks funny and like an evial dwarf in a cartoon. Even if he looks pretty simple, this mini has a lot of character


RE: tjubs blog - Bassman - 03-14-2010 04:51 PM

This was a very good entry but sorry to tell you it was a little bit under your normal quality standard. I'm not crazy for the large mounth, I know it's comedy but..... also painting is a little bit flat compared to your awesome fire sorcerer... the guy coming from lava.
Hovewer this is a really good miniature Happy


RE: tjubs blog - clam - 03-14-2010 05:13 PM

You can only agree with Snotling on this. Lots of character. Not a typical sorcerer look - but when you look and see all the details - you know it's a sorcerer alright. You did great, Tjub Takes Hat off

Hehe, I had a feeling people might react like that. I had an idea that he was somewhat transformed when he casted the spell and I wanted a mini showing the "DOOOOMMRRRRRAAAAAGGGHHHH!" Wink

Small balls of GS, let them harden and them cut them in half. Glue them to the base and then paint a layer of PVA over the lava part of the base...

RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 05-21-2010 12:23 AM

Ive done some work on my evil stunties again, this time some more slaves(naked hobgobbos) and a earthshaker. I know its a rocket but the Ill make smaller more like the old ones I did for Death Rockets and this old pulsa rokkit will serve me well as a earth shaker. Redid my hobgoblin crew for the balistas as well...

Hi just wanted to say i'm new to CDO and new to chaos dwarves for that matter but you've really inspired me I love your style and your great cartoony big hat look ( hope that does'nt offend!?! ) and i'm going to start my own army and if the results are half as good as yours i'll be thrilled. keep up the amazing work, cheers.


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 05-29-2010 04:57 AM

Thanks both of you, I really should try to give my CDs a higher priority on the painting table so Ill have atleast a 1000pts painted this summer.


RE: tjubs blog - Anonymouse - 05-29-2010 05:53 AM

Personally, I hate the cartoonish way, it makes CD look laughable. Same thing for the big hats: I'm not a fan of those.

Having said that: there's a difference between personal preference and recognizing craftsmanship. Even though I don't like the style, the details and the way you have modelled them is of a VERY high level. Kudos to you sir. Happy


RE: tjubs blog - G.2 - 05-30-2010 12:30 AM

I do like the hats that you have used. I pass an Officeworks on the way into work every morning, and they have a very LARGE sign out the front of their building, which looks something like this.

They look really good. these are a new styles of hats if Im not mistaken. the round ones are new for sure but the other ones... are you using a smaller thumb tacks or are you just adding to the top of them for a bigger hat?

Its my first attempt at teardrop shaped hats, couldnt decide what to do with them. Didnt want too much "bling bling", but I think they need something. They are a bit too plain now...

Hmm, not sure I understand what you mean. The thumb tack hats are the same as the other hats Ive done for this army. If you ment the tear drop shaped design, I started with a pear and then added GS ontop of it.

The idea with the gobbo slaves, were to name the character leading the unit. And give him a few trustworthy slaves he could use, and if necessary throw in to delay the enemy if needed to fall back. No fancy special rules, just that the slaves always seem to get wasted first. Wink


RE: tjubs blog - Da Crusha - 07-08-2010 01:55 AM

ohh, ok now that I looked at some of your other pics I can see they are the same I just got confused since these hats are not painted. I thought they were built a little bit differently.

RE: tjubs blog - Nazhur - 07-08-2010 08:05 AM

RE: tjubs blog - Khan! - 07-08-2010 10:39 AM

Those teardrop hats are great!  I hope you won't make them all like that, however - the variety is good imo.


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 07-09-2010 01:24 AM

@Pyro Stick: Yea, its his idea. Atleast I think, dont remember who had done them like that but I saw the idea somewhere on CDO. Satisfied with how they turned out too, but not sure how to finish the hats. IMO the need something more, but not too big on there. Im also considering to fill out the BBs to a cone shape, I like how they look now with more of a blast sheild but I dont know if I prefer it like this or if its just me beeing lazy. Tongue


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 07-26-2010 04:40 PM

RE: tjubs blog - Da Crusha - 07-26-2010 11:01 PM

nice slave unit you got there! I would like to field one like that but I got loads of hobgobbos (gnoblars).


RE: tjubs blog - Nicodemus - 07-27-2010 12:36 AM

Stellar bunch of slaves you've got there tjub!! Great work on the flagellants too... but the Ogres really sell the piece!  I guess now we know what happens to the Ogres who don't pay the Dawi Zharr for their Gut Plate armour Big Grin

RE: tjubs blog - Obsidian - 07-27-2010 08:05 AM

You need a big stick to herd an Ogre. Happy
Painted my first Hobgoblin to try out some new colors, more of a brown/yellowish than regular green. Im pleased with the result, so I guess Ill keep the colors for the rest of them...

RE: tjubs blog - clam - 08-02-2010 03:19 PM

Awesome Hobgoblin - I love everything about it choice of colours - PJ etc.

PS: is that a skaven miniature for base?

quick question about the blunderbusser hats, where are the beads from?

@Skink: Vallejo, Hull Red - Marron Beige - Ocre Verde and furr is just Black and Luftwaffe Uniform.

@clam: Jepp, skaven from the clanbox and a gretchin head.

Excellent onion-bulb style big hats. not sure if I'd have the sort of patience for them myself, so kudos Big Grin

Loving the ogre, but will you add a little fuse to the 'nades? In GS form, they look like flat-nippled (I guess Orc) boobies at the moment, lol Big Grin


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 09-04-2010 02:49 AM

@Skink: Jepp it is, it will be the mount for my lord and its HUGE. Happy

@Hashut's Blessing: Sure, I usually make fuses och cables of guitarr strings, just had to wait for the GS to dry... Thanks for the feedback on the hats, the plan was to add something to them. A skull or arrow etc, but I looked a bit much when I tried it so Ill just keep them plain and hope it looks smooth and good once painted.

It seems apparent to me, Tjub, that when you got to that point you could not conceive of how to get a Big Hat on that thing without it looking "unnatural" and not part of the tower. Happy


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 11-02-2010 04:44 PM

Well, as I said in some other thread my cellphone died and the new cellphone camera sucked big time so the updates has been lagging a bit. Promise to fix it asap. Tongue Anyway, second reason for the lack of updates is that Ive been moving. And I can ensure you Nicodemus that my better half is very supportive to the case of the Dawi Zharr! Happy


Here are some of the BBs Ive been working on, the unit will include a Ogre bomb lobber unit filler. Hence the dwarf with the whip...



In December we will start a Naval Warhammer campain, or atleast a bunch of senarios, and this is the start of a mighty CD feelt. Originally I planned to do subs but didnt like the concept I did so I had to go with the monitor idea.

Puha, hope this is enough of an update to save the poor dwarf...

As I said there is a problem with photos at the moment, but Ill see what I can do. The plan is to do something like a Monitor (American cival war era ship) with a few deck hatches for crew. And the squares in the front are for a death rocket ala nuclear sub. The turret will have a canon of some kind and the deck will be just above the water line.

I got this foamboard, about 5mm thick.

Cut out 3 layers, in the first one I made holes for turret, deck hatch and death rocket. The 2nd just for the deck hatch, and the last will be the bottom for the boat. Ive just glued the three layers togther and left to dry...

Btw: The original photo is just of a template for the first layer... Havent really decided how many ships there will be, but I hope I can manage atleast three in time. Happy

Thanks guys, I have to say that CDO is the main reason that Ive kept doing CDs. Havent played a game of WFB in atleast a year and Im not sure how I feel about the new ed rules. Ill have to try them out a few time ofcourse before I can judge them though...

Anyway, havent had time to do much work on the boats with moving, work and all. But heres a small boat update anyway and some Sneaky Gitz I did aswell, couldnt resist them any longer. The "shhh..." guy is their musician. Happy

Jupp, I know he would probably be too simple/plain to win any medal. But he had to fit in the unit so... Happy

Anyway, here are some new photos of the boats for Naval Warhammer that Ive been working on lately. Two CD Monitors and a Sneaky Git uboat. I might add something small to them, but they are more or less finished and ready for paint...



The canon in front is a warmachine and the periscopes are removable and count as crew.








RE: tjubs blog - nitroglysarine - 11-20-2010 02:43 PM

Lovely monitors, my only complain would be larger, bigger smoke stacks!

Hehe, thanks I guess...
Hmm, maybe you are right. I mostly just took what I had at home and started to build.But these will have to do for now, since they are just for an event. Hopefully Naval Warhammer turns out to be great fun so I can use them some more... Happy
There are quite a few rivets actually, maybe I need to add more? There are hatches on the decks as well. Was thinking about adding a fuse to the canon, but then somebody would have to light it... Hmm, more work.Tongue Wink

OK... awesome!  I love how the boats and sub all turned out, with only a modest effort in terms of building, etc. Just the perfect level of effort for just about any skill level.  Thought about doing an article for WOH along with some rules for CD naval battles or a scenario ?? Wink  Be sure to keep us updated once you get these into battle, i.e. some more pics!

Incidentally, how large of a table to you have for these and what do you use as a surface (i.e. a blue sheet of broadcloth or something like that)?

Didnt plan for the battle scars on the left to the tower of the first ship. I accidentially took black spray instead of varnish, but in the end I think it turned out really good, just had to add a little to it. But I have to admit that I was more than a litte bit upset at first... "WTF AAAaarrrrrggghhhhh!" Tongue


RE: tjubs blog - Skink - 12-05-2010 06:35 AM

Wow! Well done!!! The ships look very very nice (even though I'm scared of them after 6 months passed working on oneMad). I you haven't said anything regarding the battle damages I would have tought you painted them on purpose. They look extremely good and IMO you should paint them on the other ship as well (smoke and pollution really fits CDs). Can we have a closer look at the faces on the towers?

I am really struck by those ships, and the submersible! Frankly, those are such cool additions to the army that if I were facing it I'd probably just say "you win, those are too cool to beat!" and the game's yours! good luck with the scenario - are you also going to make some floating seamines to go with those?


RE: tjubs blog - Redhammer - 12-06-2010 02:45 PM

I just have to say... This whole blog is incredible. The ships are fantastic, and they fit perfectly with the rest of the army. This is a top-notch army, and after reading this army blog is when I decided to go big hats over masks. Fantastic conversions.

My CDs are a slow project probably never to be "finished" as there are so many possibilitys with them... But I tend to paint and build every now and them between other projects. In time there will be a whole unit ofcourse, these six Gitz are to be used for the our naval battles.

My boat got rammed...

We'll have to see, first I have to modify the two ships Ive already built. Something big would be really cool, but I guess it would be too time consuming for me to do.

Some kinda Chaos Dwarf Gyrocopter/airship carrier would be awesome aswell... hmm hmm... Happy


What, what? Shock Just imagine the face of your opponents in front of the main gun of a Great leveller battle barge.... or the Saturn-sized Wink missiles of a thunderfire!! Priceless Big Grin


RE: tjubs blog - Da Crusha - 12-15-2010 04:34 AM

Wow pretty awesome tjub. what type of rules did you use for this game? modified manowar?


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 12-15-2010 04:58 AM

@Bassman: Haha, so "if I get the first turn and dont roll a missfire I win? In case of a missfire you win..." Tongue

@Da Crusha: Mostly from Generals Compendium and some home brewed rules, most of which can be found here: http://www.foreningenylva.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=24949&st=0&start=0


RE: tjubs blog - Loki - 12-15-2010 02:36 PM

Awesome stuff Big Grin


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 01-13-2011 04:27 PM


After playing our first Naval WFB I realised my ships had not enough fire power, so both of them are updated with an extra deck and a Death Rocket each. The extra decks carries two cannons, which I got magnetised so I can change between canon and hatch closed.


Troops on the lower decks will be placed on these sideboards as well as crew to the canons.

Ill be back with a BANG!

Not as much an update to the blog as showing the new ships in action. We played another Naval battle yesterday, our proud CDs were the only ones with ships still floating at the end. It was mayhem and destruction!

RE: tjubs blog - fonejaker - 01-17-2011 03:13 AM

so what rules are you using for the navel games?


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 01-17-2011 03:31 AM

We use Generals Compendium, 8th ed and a bunch of House rules that grow and evovle. Most of the House rules can be found in this thread http://www.foreningenylva.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=24949 . At the moment we are talking about some kinda nerf for canons and swiming if you wear armour.

Hey Tjub, any chance of doing an article for WoH?  

Of course I wouldn't be so presumptuous to speak for the WoH staff, but an article with a few WIP shots of your CD ships, the finished product, as well as the source of the rules (i.e. which ones you use and how they're implemented) and a short battle report - preferably with a victory outcome for the Big Hats - would be a stellar piece to read and might encourage the rest of us!

RE: tjubs blog - Mr Saturday - 01-17-2011 12:56 PM

I'd like to see that battle report too, and any rules you've come up with for the chaos dwarf ships. You're a lucky gent to get to play such games.


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 01-17-2011 05:33 PM

@Nicodemus: Oh, maybe... Some day... Nothing I promise but, yea... I might. Im not a very skilled writer. Happy
We simply build the ships as Dwarf ships, crewed by Chaos Dwarfs and Hobgoblins and armed there after. I prefer to use my warriors to fight and the Hobgoblins/slaves to shovel coal. Happy

I think I made a link before, but all the extra rules we've come up with so far are in this thread. http://www.foreningenylva.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=24949 Most of the posts are in swedish but atleast the rules are in english, spread trough the thread. I guess we'll gather them all somewhere when we are done, btw they are not rules for competitive gaming! Just for some cool naval action...

RE: tjubs blog - Mr Saturday - 01-18-2011 08:13 AM

I love them guys. Did you make the goblin heads more pointy? Did you file the ears? I had planned on shelling out for original sneaky gits, but after seeing these...


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 01-18-2011 08:42 AM

Actually I didnt do much at all to the Gitz, out from the box Skaven Plauge monk bodies and removed the tail and other obvious Skaven bitz. Bought a fair amount of Gretchin heads of ebay, filled the hole in the back of the head with a ball och GS and simply glues it on the body. Tada easy as it get! Happy The colours used can be found on some of the previous pages...

Loki: I actually sold all of my old CDs(the showcase army) including all of the greenskins. And started from scratch again(back on page 30), Im planning to do all Hobgoblins with the same skintone. My Black Orcs are really dark green and my comming Orcs will be more "normal" green.


RE: tjubs blog - Borador - 01-18-2011 08:45 AM

nice hobgoblins! ^^


RE: tjubs blog - Bassman - 01-18-2011 10:06 AM

The hobgoblins are simply perfect. Simple, fast and really effective, what could you ask for more? :-)
If I did not have spent hours converting my nightgoblins I would immediately copied your idea!

RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 02-02-2011 05:20 PM

My latest addition to my Chaos Dwarfs is another boat for Naval Warhammer. I made it with two roles in mind, primary to carry an Earth Shaker and secondary to act as a launching platform/carrier for a CD Gyrocopter/flier of some kind. Its basicly a big deck and a high tower fited with optical spoting equipment! Happy








Im a huge fan of "neodymium rare earth magnets" and Ive used about 1500 in various modeling/gaming projects. Makes transport really easy and is great for models with changeable equipment... Happy

Here is an old WIP pic from a few pages back in the blog. The base for the hats are beads from some local hobby shop. I took a match to give it some more stability and then added GS to get it into a teardroped shape. Once its hardened just get it into shape with a file. Takes Hat off
Btw, dont remember who to credit for this. But I got the original idea from someone here at CDO...

Basicly yes... Atleast for me, its rather booring to paint all that red and to break it up and have some creative freedom is the reason for mine. Just a chance to do something fun with a unit.
No rules for them, the just represent four(in my case) models. And when the unit has taken a bunch of losses I usually replace them with the soldiers the represent instead.
What a GW tourny would think of the concept I dont know, doesnt matter at all to me anyway since I only play with some friends and we are not really focused in the competetive part of the game. In other words if someone makes a cool model thats not represented in the books we make up some rules for it and use in our games.
Anyway, Ive seen unit fillers in a bunch of other armies out there, but maybe they are a bit more comon here on CDO. A reason could be all the old school and sometimes hard to get models, or the need to convert 80 or so basic infantry models... Takes Hat off


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 02-12-2011 11:11 AM

Finished painting my last boat. Again it didnt turn out exactly the way I wanted, something got messed up with the varnish on the tower. But after a while I decided it could very well look like that after being at sea for some time. Happy







RE: tjubs blog - dncswlf - 02-12-2011 12:30 PM

Awesome new ship Tjub!  I just read your post about filler pieces... I've never used them myself, but they look great and the concept is good.  as to making up rules, that's really what the game was all about.. you ever play 40K back in the rogue trader days?  I made up hover race cars and other vehicles out of plastic car models and some Gi Joe guns glued on.  Good times.  Being creative in the game is what it is all about for me!

Almost four months since the last update, guess my CDs deserves more attention soon...

Anyway, heres my entry for the GH. The idea is that hes from an elite unit. I was planning to make a unit of 20 Immortals, that I could use as warriors as well since Im not sure what future lists will allow. The theme was to give them all bulkier armour and burning hats to show of their elite status.










RE: tjubs blog - Bolg - 07-11-2011 06:15 PM

Very cool model. looking forward to seeing this as an entire unit.

love to see the sculpt before it was painted.

RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 07-21-2011 01:59 PM



Ok, so I found this image the other day while googleing for other miniature related stuff. When I was out running today it came back to me...
Would it be too far out to mount a hero on a Rhinox or something similar? Considering there are plenty of CD armies using various Ogres as allies.

Dont know how well it would fit into my CD army though, considering all the lava and volcanic environment. But Im considering doing a hero mounted on Juggernaugt or a black Giant Scorpion, much like vulcanologist version. What do you guys think would be the best idea to approach?


RE: tjubs blog - vulcanologist - 07-22-2011 04:02 PM

Some really really cool new stuff in your blog as usual Tjub! Strange your even considering a hero on a giant scorpion given how much your army and your style has inspired me it's nice to know I've returned the favour even in just a small way!
I'm sure whichever approach you opt for will be well worth seeing !


RE: tjubs blog - Skink - 07-25-2011 01:57 PM

It looks good to me! Anyway, if the new BCs are really mounted on a big base you can make a whole cavalry of Rhinox riders (complete with command) and field them as "counts as BCs"

I believe Rhinox go on 50x50 mm bases (like Razorgors), while the new Bull Centaurs are most likely going to be on 40x40 mm bases - similar to Rat Ogres, Minotaurs, Ogres, etc.  Not that everying absolutely has to be consistent.  Centigors are still on 25x50 mm bases, although they are only 1 W models.  The new BCs will be 2 W models, which may be some of the justification... it'd also make them slightly easier to hit with a template, being that the 40x40 base is 28% larger than the 25x50 ones.  Base sizes are just one of those annoying things with our hobby. They're usually set in stone for rules purposes, etc - except when they aren't Tongue

Tjub those CD's are frigging awesome! i love what you u have done with the hats bro, good idea and saves money. Well done.Cheers!


RE: tjubs blog - Bolg - 08-24-2011 06:20 AM

I going trough your awesome army blog again, and its stunning to see how you build up your army.

One question that kept popping up page after page:

Next time when you do a face sculpt could you maybe do a step by step photo series? its not that I want to copy your faces but I would love to see how make them as inspiration.

(or did you already did this i'm only up to page 31 and I cant wait with asking this question)

I think I did, but if Im worng Ill do it next time. Ive been more or less occupied IRL and with preparing for our comming Necromunda and FoW campains, so I havent done any CDs for a while... And probably wont do much in the comming six months or so(Waiting for the "new" book). Other than GHs etc ofcourse! Happy


RE: tjubs blog - Bolg - 08-24-2011 04:55 PM

No rush, my CD's are also a bit on hold as I'm also waiting for the same book.
I'll pass my time looking at your necromunda scenery updates and more (:


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 11-10-2011 05:34 AM


The base for my fulcrum was an old CD and some styrofoam.


Did the lava with PVA glue and later added some GS balls cut in half for bubles. Then the lava got another coat of PVA all over.
The chains were pretty easy and fast to do, simply cut them up in about the length I wanted and then hang them up in strings. Added superglue in the joints and left them to dry for the night.


One chain aint that stable, but together the dont have any problems to hold up my mounted charachters. Didnt want to push it too much, but my Taurus/dragon could stand there without it beeing too unstable.


A pretty easy and quick construction was what I was aiming for, better that than another half done project. The building time all together was just about a few hours.



Added some sand to give it some texture and a rune of Hashut on top of the rock since it seemed a bit to flat and boring. Painting the fulcrum was rather straight forward as well, undercoated black and then two drybrushes of grey and some high lights here and there. I guess painting the lava was the most difficult part since I couldnt get saticfied with it and redid it three times before I gave up. Happy







RE: tjubs blog - Bassman - 11-10-2011 08:05 AM

Awesome lava! And the guy on top seems to be very happy Big Grin
Just, is your taurus plastic or resin, isn't it? As I doubt your fulcrum can support the hyper heavy old metal taurus... not to talk about old dragons!!!

RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 11-15-2011 12:47 PM

I havent got the Thamurkan book yet, at least its shiped now, but Ive understood that there are no more alternatives for Hobgoblins. So instead of redoing the ones I have or mix in the units Ill try to make my Hobbos into a "ninja" clan instead. Keeping the Sneaky Gitz I have and add some bowmen to the army. I guess the Ungor arms is the only way to go here, but I decided to keep the paluge monk torsos for them... Theyll be painted with the same theme as my Sneaky Gitz.



What do you guys think of the concept?


RE: tjubs blog - ryanamandaanna - 11-15-2011 12:59 PM

looks great, yo!


RE: tjubs blog - Groznit Goregut - 11-16-2011 09:44 AM

Fantastic!  Is that a 40k gretchin head?  You can't get those single anymore.  I have wondered what the plague monks might look like for bowmen.  I think they look good and better than the Storm Vermin for archers.  Makes them look wimpier (like a proper archer).


RE: tjubs blog - Test - 11-17-2011 05:52 AM

Nice !

In fact i'm doing something quite similar for my hobgobbos:
Skaven Plague Monks Torsos and Goblin wolf riders heads and arms.
Maybe i'll look for some ungors arms now !


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 11-18-2011 02:20 PM


Finished the eight torsos I had in the bitz bag, need to get another box of Plauge Monks. Dont have the book yet, err, but I assume they are 20+?


RE: tjubs blog - ryanamandaanna - 11-18-2011 05:38 PM

yep, 20+


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 11-22-2011 03:41 PM

The Hobgoblin archers and Deathshriekers are looking fine. I'm slightly in awe at your smooth sculpting (mainly the top of their hats and the spyglass' lense). I can handle detailed sculpts any day, but I always struggle with smooth surfaces. Will we get an army shot along with naval forces when these new additions are painted? Wink

The plan is to build a few more units, once they all are done Ill get some good photos of them all together... Happy

To get smooth areas I recomend Clay Shapers or water and fingers.

RE: tjubs blog - Skink - 12-11-2011 03:19 PM

Great unit! Simple and effective way to build Hobgoblins.

By the way, at this point you have quite a massive army. If I'm correct you have 40 slaves, 20 Hobbos, 20 bows, heaps on war machines, CD warriors, 30 Blunders and the Dragon/Taurus... What are your next plans?

True, but dont know what to do with the slaves? I have 25 Sneaky gitz, 20 with bows, 20 warriors and about 15 blunderbusses. Earthshaker, 2 Death Rockets and monsters. Didnt keep the first versions of my army since I didnt like them...

The plan is to make 6 K'daii, a Destroyer and beef up the warriors a bit. Then atleast I should be able to play my first 8th ed game. Tongue Wink

RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 12-12-2011 12:27 AM

Jepp, I did. Used them as naked Hobgoblins, but with the current rules for Cutthroats Im not sure if they fit. So they will end up in a box, for future use...

RE: tjubs blog - Bassman - 02-19-2012 12:05 PM

Well, actually, I know it's not nice to tell you but... I'd prefer him "shaven".
I know you are looking for a lava effect but these pieces of green stuff just look like... pieces of green stuff.
The "shaven" plastic looked like actual rock and with smaller cracks and a proper paint job would look like proper lava.

And if you prefer this kind of lava texture please leave the horns and face free. IMO it would look much better.

Take this as a constructive criticism Wink

Wasn't sure if the K'daai Destroyer would look good the way that it was looking at the green stuff stage, but after the painting it looks great!
Though have to agree that the base looks plain though, and could use something more on it. Not sure what, but just looks a bit barren at the moment..

I just think it could have used some bronze part, such as horns, maybe face, or simple small parts of the body.


But it is definitely one of the best ideas for this beast.

RE: tjubs blog - zhatan87 - 02-27-2012 02:19 PM

As always I love your work but this time you didn't had my vote. For two reasons: The base, which can really use some more detail IMO and for the lava effect. Dude, you are the KING of lava in this forum (your bases are fabulous) and the effect on the giant is just not up to your level I think!

Thanks, even though I might not agree about my lava painting skills! Tongue
To be honest I've got really bored at painting lava and I only gave the "cannon" an hour or two, just to be done with it. Thinking that I might go back another time, but at least I would be able to field it as it is.

About the bases, same as my Destroyer, I can't really decide on what to do there. IMO the should be rather plain. Im not a fan of dioramas running around, even though the might lock great on their own, but no the other hand. Jupp, they might need something more...


RE: tjubs blog - Bolg - 07-23-2012 07:28 AM

Have you got more WIP shots (of the crew maybe)? And I agree with Skink, I love the model, but the base is a bit to boring. You dont have to make a complete diorama but as the base is a lot bigger than most it does need that extra bit to keep it interesting. I say sculpt a mini volcano and  let it ooze out your famous lava (:

RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 08-02-2012 06:14 PM

Hehe...

Jupp, it was really fun. Had a bit of bad luck as well, and a played a friend who knew what he was doing. First time I tried the Tamurkhan list. The K'daii were cool, but my CD block ran at first chance. They got a good wooping from a unit of Savage ork big 'uns and some evil spell that forced then to reroll 6s. Angry


RE: tjubs blog - Bolg - 08-02-2012 06:54 PM

If you had fun I dont need to hear more, just play again, this new list has oodles of options for you to try! broken or not, we are quite used to that anyways (:

RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 09-27-2012 07:50 AM


Added 10 warriors as well, might be able to field a 2000pts army with them! Or what is the current standard?


RE: tjubs blog - Bolg - 09-27-2012 08:17 AM

2400- 2500 points.

But in my book the best games are 1800 - 2000 so you have to choose what to take in stead of just taking everything.

Oh and the best option for them at the moment is handweapon shield d:

Looking forward to all the painted updates (:

RE: tjubs blog - G.2 - 09-28-2012 01:38 AM

Forgeworld's minis are one extreme of the hobby - Very serious, Tough and BadAss

And

Tjubs minis are the other extreme of the hobby - Light hearted, fun and whimsical

Both have their place in this game of ours, and both can be a lot of fun to see on a games table. My personal preference is somewhere in the middle. But I still like see both extremes. Keep up the great work tjub.


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 01-04-2013 02:22 PM


20 Hobgoblin archers in 2 days, puuuha! Only need to finish up the lava on some of the bases, but Ill save that for another year...


RE: tjubs blog - DAGabriel - 01-04-2013 02:32 PM

Yes please tell us as I too was impressed by this fire.

Oh and I liked the ogre Kadaai, the fitted your comical approach to warhammer, these look very cool but a bit more serious.

But either way I'm just happy seeing updates in this topic (:


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 01-20-2013 10:55 AM

@Bolg: I know, but they were really boring to make and paint. And to be honest I felt it was a little bit too much with the K'daii, Destroyer and Ass Cannon all the same. These are alot quicker to do and seems like Ive got a bit of a CD flow at the moment, so Ill hopefully finish the unit before moving on...

Anyway, regarding the flames:

1. Start by making small cones... Bigger for flames etc.


2. Attach the cones, works as a base for the flames as well.



3. Drag out the cones using tool and a finger. With bigger flames simply repeat on the ends.



4. Pull them down and shape with a tool and make sure the direction of the flames fits with the model.



Simply add more and smaller cones working your way out...


RE: tjubs blog - Bolg - 01-20-2013 11:08 AM

Boring to make.. check. that is reason enough to never do them again (:

And thanks for the Flame walktrough. i'll try it a.s.a.p.

RE: tjubs blog - Skink - 01-21-2013 02:59 PM

Better. Just scrap off that Khorne rune from the hilt of the sword, Hashut wouldn't like his K'daai to flirt with another god Hashut!

Painted the last ten CDs I had converted! The plan was to complete it within 2013, but I guess Ive been in  a flow the last weeks... Finished the K'daii unit as well, so now I have 6 of them. 2013 seems to be the year of Chaos Dwarfs for me... Happy

With the "new" K'daii design in mind I think Ill have to redo my Destroyer as well, has anyone done one with the Balrog model? Or have any pics for scale? Or any other suitable model in mind for that matter?


RE: tjubs blog - Malikos - 01-27-2013 04:16 PM

Both look great. I'm sorry if i missed it, but what is the base model for the Kdaii?


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 01-27-2013 04:23 PM


Here is the unit of six, the colors are a bit woonky as usual...  As far as Ive understood its about enough?

@Malikos: Its Bloodletters, just trimmed down the heads and used the horns as tails.


RE: tjubs blog - Malikos - 01-27-2013 04:32 PM

Ah... They seem larger than that. That's a great conversion... might have to steal it! Cheers!


RE: tjubs blog - JMR - 01-27-2013 06:39 PM

Two thumbs up from me, Tjub! Takes Hat off


RE: tjubs blog - Zuh-Khinie - 01-28-2013 07:03 AM

The balrog would fit well with your fireborn. You'll want to redo the flames on him because your flames are much more dynamic. I don't have a picture of one though, so I can't offer it up for size comparison.

But knowing the model, I think it'll be a bit small for such a large base.

Anyhow, always love to see your work. Outstanding as ever!


RE: tjubs blog - JMR - 01-28-2013 07:34 AM

Baggronor did a Balrog-Destroyer here and Zanko did one here.

Hope this helps.


RE: tjubs blog - Zuh-Khinie - 01-28-2013 07:39 AM

That's actually quite allright size-wise...


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 01-29-2013 01:28 AM

Thanks JMR, now i feel lazy... Tongue
Looks OK size wise I guess, without wings seems to be the way to go.


RE: tjubs blog - Goltor Lintrepide - 01-29-2013 06:04 PM

Those k'daai really look badass. The only thing I would change is those two edged sword, they doesn't look chaos-dwarf-ish at all. Some axes or sabres would look better. Also, since k'daai are some kind of demon race bound to some kind of armor, I would add some metal effect while painting them.
Anyway, they already look superb. Takes Hat off


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 02-06-2013 01:43 AM

http://thenickeninja.wordpress.com/author/thenickeninja/ ...here is some proof that Ive actually played a game! The K'daii were great, a really cool unit. Found it hard to use the big block of Warriors, they kinda acted as a meat sheild for my characters who blew them to peices with miscasts. A total of 18 CD Warriors got this fate...

Also realised that Ive based my Hellcanon on the wrong base size, not that it matter much though. Now I can add the chains which were the original plan but had to be skiped due to lack of space. Tongue
2013 so far has without doubt been the year of Chaos Dwarfs, planing on adding some BCs and a bunch of new characters. 30 Warriors with HW/S and a new Destroyer.
How much a no brainer are the Hobgobbo Wolfriders? And about the Daemonsmith character, might need to stick one with my warmachines since I kept rolling a misfire and blowing my own stuff up.


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 02-10-2013 06:17 AM



WIP Bullcentaurs, not sure if they should have hats or not.
Pros, every CD in my army so far has a hat and it would be good for unity and as a comical factor. Would be able to give the models something red as well without painting the whole Juggernaught red. Cons, the hats assuming they are the same as for every other CD would be a bit small for the model I guess, the hats would be in the way of all the hacking slashing and axeswinging being done.
Any opinions?


RE: tjubs blog - Yodrin - 02-10-2013 06:39 AM

Those look really great!!! I would say no hats on those bad boys....


RE: tjubs blog - The Besieger - 02-10-2013 07:39 AM

I say no hat.


RE: tjubs blog - Goltor Lintrepide - 02-10-2013 02:32 PM

I'd say make those horns grow a little bit instead!


RE: tjubs blog - Skink - 02-10-2013 04:05 PM

Great! They look awesome!!! I want to know more about them. And I´d say that they work good without hats. Otherwise they´d look a bit top heavy.


RE: tjubs blog - JMR - 02-10-2013 05:28 PM

Looks good (and hilarious). You could do a medium big-hat, kinda like the one Drazhoath wears. They don't all have to be the same.

I ordered some Dragon Ogres to convert to Chaos Ogres, do you reckon the Dragon Ogre torsos would fit on regular ogre legs or would they be too big?


RE: tjubs blog - kbolster12345 - 02-10-2013 08:23 PM

Actually I pretty much just removed the head and most of the obvious Khorne markins from the Juggernaughts. For the Dragon Ogres, the spikes on the back and some minor GS work to make them fit. But its pretty much just the torsos out of the box with Minotaur axes...

Jupp, thought about that as well. But I think Id like to keep to my hat standards. Think Ill have to complete all three of them and then decide to hat or not to hat. Tongue

BTW, regarding Chaos Ogres I saw these. Minotaurs with a few Ogre bits, looks ace IMO. I think they Ogre legs with Dragon Ogre torsos might work with some GS, the cloak thing between their legs(what ever its called) might be too long though. The Dragon Ogre torsos arent much bigger than normal Ogres just more ripped. Interesting to see what you'll do with them...

Using juggernaut bodies for these dragon ogre conversions is an awesome idea, I also really like the beards and poses. I have to say though I'm not fond of the nose. I know it's really to keep them with the theme of your army and all, but I think they lose a lot of menace with that big thing in their face. Just my 2cents. Of course once painted I will still admire your work, no matter how big the noses are. Wink

Ah, true... The bases are actually marked properly for each position now, its an old photo I had on the computer. The two with red helmets are blitzers, two slayers, and numer 1 and 2 with the running position are runners, all the others are linemen.
The guy with a winged helmet is a runner, but in our league we "bling" the players who have reached 76+SPP, since we see them as more of characters. Ex Thoring here... http://www.tloeg.bloodbowlleague.com/default.asp?p=pl&pid=21

A flying Chaos Dwarf Sorcerer, Ill have to smooth out some parts of the cloud though...


A new banner bearer.

RE: tjubs blog - Bolg - 03-03-2013 03:34 PM

I'm so digging the sorcerer on flying carpet/cloud! The teaser made him even better.

Most defiantly a idea I might steal (:


RE: tjubs blog - Skink - 03-03-2013 03:59 PM

Love the Sorcerer! But the standard bearer really caught my attention! It gives me the idea of something simple yet practical yet brutal, and that´s the way I imagine CDs... From which kit that Chaos Star comes from???

They are pretty straight forward, removed the neck fron the juggernaughts and glued on the torso from the dragon ogres. Had to trim down some of the stuff they hand on their back and filled all the gaps with green stuff.

Heres two shots of the army in field, facing of against a chaos horde in the green-happy-magic-forest... Happy



Never got around to do the shields for the warriors, so its time to catch up. Ill go for the same design through out the whole army. Anyone know suitable shields for Bull Centaurs?


RE: tjubs blog - DAGabriel - 03-17-2013 04:23 AM

Love those shields, cool painting.
How about some of these combining your painted shield core with a wider and ornate rim?

RE: tjubs blog - Bad Gram Northern - 03-28-2013 12:14 PM

Dear Tjub,

I must say your creativity and skills are just genious! this is one hell of an amazing blog! And I absolutly LOVE your conversions! (like putting dragon ogres on top of juggernauts! genious!)
Your Pyromancer even inspired my Fire wizard I did a few years back (before I signed up on this forum) I hope you don't mind me sharing an old pic of him.

unfortunatly the pics of the ass cannon and destroyer seem to have vanished. It would be nice to see some up-close pics of them. Allthough at first glance they look great in those army-shots

Now I hope that someday your new sorceror can become a real boy to Tongue Wink


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 03-28-2013 05:00 PM

I know most people prefer more stuff on the bases than I do, but been thinking about adding tuffs here and there. Not much, just a few to each block and the bigger bases?
It fits with the wasteland, but Im not sure with the lava. Do you think it would be ok as long as I avoid to put them too close to the lava?

Was thinking about some dead dry grass:



RE: tjubs blog - Abecedar - 04-18-2013 01:25 AM

I don't believe in having any grass near lava, you could try different sized and shades in rocks but not grass or foliage


RE: tjubs blog - Skink - 04-18-2013 11:50 AM

I'm with Abecedar. I can't imagine grass to grow next to lava. What about volcanic crystals? Cheap to make, effective, and fluffy. Especially with a bit of OSL.


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 05-08-2013 02:51 AM

Ok, no grass then. Seems Ill have to figure something else out to pimp the bases...

Back on track with WFB again it feels like, so what better than to get your own themed table? Happy


Got some help to carry it home, thanks, and no more dining table...

Anyway, not sure this will work out. But hope for the best here, havent played WFB that much since 5th ed. And for terrain Ill start with the, IMO classic, 2-3 forests and hills. Since CDs are a living natural disaster, I couldnt very well just go with normal trees... So the idea is clouds instead, might be dangers go through so better keep distance.




WIP, to fill the gaps. The plan is to cover them with PVA later on to get a smoother surface much like to sorceror on carpet/cloud.

RE: tjubs blog - Bad Gram Northern - 06-08-2013 07:03 AM

damn I so love that grendel big cannon!
It's such a pity I can't find a spot for it in my army (not enough deamonic for a hellcannon and not enough mortar for a dreadquake Sad )


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 06-09-2013 03:45 AM


Noticed that for some reason I had my Hellcanon on a too small base, so went with the original idea I had and rebased him...

Also started work som two Magma canons, inspiration from Bolg, still WIP.





RE: tjubs blog - Bolg - 06-09-2013 06:18 AM

I love what you are doing with your hell cannon. more detail is good! (dont forget to put some more detail on the base too.

And I think those magmacannons will go great with your style army. looking forward to seeing them finished and all painted up. (please spoil us wit all the wip pics you can spare ofcourse).

From a gaming point of view it might be better to put cannons on round bases, you will never have trouble turning the model if they are placed in between your units. And I think it also looks a tad better.


RE: tjubs blog - Thommy H - 06-09-2013 06:38 AM

RE: tjubs blog - bas_2312 - 06-09-2013 06:48 AM

Those Magmacannons are the cutest! Maybe you should move the wheels a little more forward to offset the balance.

Also cool idea of using the Ork bombs as hatches!


RE: tjubs blog - Skink - 06-09-2013 11:58 PM

I like the Hellcannon a lot! It has much more character now (it already had a lot before)Cheers!. And those Magmas are fantastic as well!!!


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 06-10-2013 12:27 AM


Just some basic GS work added...


Started to work on the fellow again, a Hobgoblin hero. Whats the preferred weapon options/items?


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 06-14-2013 02:13 PM

Finished my themed Chaos Dwarf table, its just the basics for now. A few hills and forests... A tower, a keep, some magma, a few pumps etc are in the pipeline. Flip the table and theres a sea for Dystopian/Naval WFB or whatever. Happy







RE: tjubs blog - Bolg - 06-14-2013 02:30 PM

Love the carpet as base for the table, that is quite a good idea. (less chance oon damaging your models as you play)

RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 06-26-2013 02:03 PM

Well... After building the biggest bight to date and given him a bird I thought he would be a perfect admiral for my fleet and our upcoming senario. But then, as always. I had another idea, why not for once try something different and do a Chaos Dwarf with a marine theme. Pirate/squidbeard seemed to be the obvious choice. Said and done...
Sadly Im not a fluff master, but my thoughts are something along these lines. Old veteran admiral goes up north with his fleet to battle of chaos things. The fleet is never heard from again, and the chaos raids cease so it is thought a victory with no survivers. Fast forward 3-400 years or so, a scout vessel up north finds a raft with a lone surviver claiming to be the admiral.

Might be a good excuse to try out some other magic than the Hashut deck, if we still are allowed to use them?






RE: tjubs blog - Skink - 06-26-2013 02:10 PM

Sweet job on this one! He definitely embodies the seadog stereotype. But being honest I preferred the previous one! Cannot exactly say why though... This one looks more like a sea-sorcerer than an admiral, and is less dynamic.

EDIT: Bull Centaurs and Magma Cannons seem to come along nicely Wink.

RE: tjubs blog - Enslaver - 06-26-2013 03:35 PM

When said and done I am sure it will be another flawless sculpt but I do miss the first one also. The tentacle beard is top notch, the hat seems to look more of a Viking war drum to me. All in all I can't wait to see it painted. Good job once again!


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 06-26-2013 03:55 PM

Dont get me wrong, I love the first one! He will be my new fighting character, the squidbeard wont see too much table time I guess. Other when its time for WFB naval...

Edit: Btw, the "wardrum" was a nod to the crown of Neptun... Happy Urrr, might have to build him a new ship and crew.


RE: tjubs blog - Bolg - 06-26-2013 05:22 PM

Hey Tjub...I'm new on the forums here and just acquired most of your work from the 1st 30 or so pages...just checked up on your recent work and your new characters look epic...especially the tentacles in the beard! (seems to me a chaos dwarf can't have too big of a hat...that is unless he literally falls over)

can't wait to see what you came up with for your newest incarnation of bull centaurs...your sculpting is inspiring...I haven't done GS in a while but seeing your work first hand and you blog here has me itching to start green stuffing some reinforcements of my own!


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 07-03-2013 12:33 AM

@Persufflation: Thanks! And Im glad to hear that they have found a new home, havent seen or heard from them in a few years...

@Skink: I couldnt resist the WF Bulls, they got new beards and noses though.





RE: tjubs blog - Skink - 07-03-2013 02:51 AM

Will they make a unit with the BCs wielding GWs (I love acronyms!)? How the two styles of Bull Centaurs compare? Awesome job as usual by the way.

They are super sweet mate! And your version looks much more Chaos Dwarfy than the FW one (I guess is the bigger nose, bigger beard and moustache). Again, will you use these in combo with the Great Weapon ones? And can you post a photo with the two kind of Centaurs for comparison?

Actually the Bulls with great weapons are sold. But I can get one last photo of the as a comparison for you... Happy
Anyway, the reason that these dont have GWs are that they looked so brutal with the normal minotaur hand weapons. But since they are bigger than a normal man Im sure they can be played as GWs as well, at least among friends.

RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 07-05-2013 09:00 AM



Played my first game on the CD-table yesterday, managed to fend of a bunch of Vampires and other critters... Took a pic of the army as it stands while I had most of them unpacked anyway. Not the best quality Im afraid. Happy

Working on some Wolf Riders and Magma Canons, any other suggestions on what to ad next?


RE: tjubs blog - Bolg - 07-05-2013 09:18 AM

That looks like that was one mega big battle, should have been to cool to watch!

Oh and seriously looking good tjub!


RE: tjubs blog - Abecedar - 07-06-2013 03:34 AM

How did the clouds go? Did they stay static or float around a bit as the game progressed


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 07-06-2013 03:55 AM

@Skink: I ment that the photo is all of my CDs, not just the army I played at the moment...

@Abecedar: Played them as forests, might try something else in the future. But none of us have WFB a lot over the last editions, so better keep it simple. Wink


RE: tjubs blog - Skink - 07-06-2013 01:17 PM

...Is it me or the Fireborn are missing in the photo?

Anyway, if you want to add to your force I'd bring the blunderbusses up to 30, the Hobgoblins to 40, and the Bull Centaurs to 6 (with command). Then maybe include a Taur'ruk. Finally, why don't you make an Iron Daemon? I bet that with your skillz you can come up with something awesome!

Jupp, they got sold as well. Ill get the Forge World ones and do something fun with them. Wasnt satisfied with either of my own attempts. Sad

RE: tjubs blog - Satan - 07-06-2013 06:57 PM

How'd the game go? Deathbullar showed me a pic of you guys playing on FB and now he's gotten it into his head that he's gonna start playing Daemons, that silly boy. ;-)


RE: tjubs blog - Abecedar - 07-07-2013 06:58 AM

I have ruminated over how wind conditions and such would affect gas clouds as I have been making some gas vents for terrain.  I keep getting sucked into way too many thoughts of changing wind conditions and such and that keeps getting way too complicated. I think I've settled on the idea of finding out which direction the wind has been blowing and at what strength (sort of how far the cloud extends in a tail sort of shape, like a reversed flame template) as soon as the first unit enters a section of one of the clouds / vents then they find out what happens to all of the clouds or vent as the wind must affect the whole area at once.


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 07-14-2013 05:47 PM






Finally finished the crew for my Flame Cannons...


...after looking at the pictures I realized this guy needed some eyebrows. Happy


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 07-14-2013 05:51 PM

No reason why, but made myself a new version of Astragoth. Missed him and Zhatan the Black, should agree on some CDO Approved rules for them!






RE: tjubs blog - Skink - 07-14-2013 11:15 PM

The crew and Astragoth look fantastic. I especially like the bald guy!

I'm not too keen on the Magmas though... It's almost like they lack detail. Maybe you can add some "beaten iron" texture to the gun a la Ishkur? And I hope that you injected those table tennis balls with silicone or stuff like it. Otherwise they will be squished soooo easily!\

EDIT: Where's Astragoth's hammer? Hashut!

Army looks ultra great, cannons are awesomes.

If you can get a hold of the General's Compendium, there are rules for ash clouds, magma flows and such. It's a superb gaming resource.


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 07-15-2013 10:00 AM

Oh, we actually have it somewhere... Used it as a base for Naval Warhammer. Happy




Added his hammer, oops, and some exoskeleton to the torso...

Hobgoblin Khan


Hobgoblin Wolfriders

During my last games Ive ran my Hobgoblin Cutthroats with 2 weapons, but Im considering giving them shields instead. 5+ save and a parry save, might be better?

RE: tjubs blog - BLOOD AXE - 08-02-2013 12:14 PM

Awesome Astragoth! What did you use for his robot body?

Have you looked into casting your figures? You could take the front head piece of the Dwarves, sculpt on it, then cast the piece. (or several variations) You could cast many and speed up your army building. Like Ishkur Cinderhat did.


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 08-06-2013 09:41 AM

Some parts I had left over, if I remember correctly they were from http://maxmini.eu . No plan in casting anything, Im not sure how much work it would really save. If I had redone the army all over from scratch I might consider it but not at this stage.

...Cancel my previous comment, seeing them closer really changed my mind about them. I still think that you could have added more detail, but overall they look great!

And again, are those table tennis balls? Cauz if yes they are extremely squishy! I would inject them a syringe of silicone for extra strength.

Started to work on a command for the BC, conversions A1, but I like them! Happy


Also got some new Kdaii, 3rd attempt. Didnt like their weapons so they got dwarf hand weapons and sheilds.



RE: tjubs blog - Bolg - 09-01-2013 03:17 PM

Ha, new Kadaai again. good luck. hope these will stick.

RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 10-06-2013 03:40 PM

Finally got around to do a Battlestandard...




RE: tjubs blog - Bloodbeard - 10-07-2013 09:18 AM

That's the first battle standard I've seen without an actual banner. But it's an awesome piece, must be heavy as hell.

I do like standards that you'll be able to use as a bigger than big great weapon. You'll be able to turn an ogre into a pancake with that.

Generally you're big hats, big noses and big teeth work very well. It ties the army together quite well.


RE: tjubs blog - Skink - 10-07-2013 11:06 AM

I like it as much as I like your other models (lots!). You know what though? The actual "bearer" looks like an ordinary dwarf rather than a Castellan...

Some more Hobgoblins, this time with gnoblar heads and shields. The plan is to give the rest of them shields as well and mix them up.

Better than you might think, but with a tray its far easier! I really like the look of an incoming volly. At first I couldnt decide on shields, but the old Beastmen shields were big and one I tried them on the seems really Hobgobbo. Of course the will use the biggest shield they can find!

Sticklander: Its from a giants box, if I remember correct.


RE: tjubs blog - Bloodbeard - 10-11-2013 10:30 PM

That is onr undisciplined and squabling unit og goblins. Its gonna work well besides the stoic well orhanized dwarfs.

It's like that roman turtle formation gone horrible wrong.


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 12-03-2013 04:33 PM



Got some paint on the last Hobgoblins, bringing the unit up to 40+. IMO the mix with Grot/Gnoblar heads work fine...


RE: tjubs blog - Dînadan - 12-03-2013 05:07 PM

RE: tjubs blog - Fuggit Khan - 12-03-2013 06:07 PM

I am looking forward to seeing this guy with some paint one him - the nose is a bit comical I think, but paint often change a mini completely.

This guy really needs a vest - he's obviously a gentleman and a scholar!

The bighat is nicely done, especially the top. But it could use some more detail on the "body", it's a rather large flat area.

Nice build. The multible layers of beard is a great touch, wouldn't have thought of it myself. Thank you, will do that with my own BCs.

Jupp,  I got fed up painting lava. Still have a lot of older bases with lava, but plan is to remove the lava and maybe add a turf or a skeleton here and there. To get more the feel of a ash waste land with an occasional lava stream more than cracked molten lava all over the place kinda land. Ill add a lava steam and lava pools to the table instead.


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 01-14-2014 04:06 AM

Astragoth high priest of Hashut, in exoskeleton and glasses. I know he doesn't have the hammer, tried to make it work. But it didn't, so he'll have to make a kick attack instead. Happy

RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 01-17-2014 07:36 AM

Ive been planing to add some troops with Fire Glaives, but not sure on how to make them. Ideas?

This would be the easy way, simply adding the head of an axe to the barrel of a thunderer...




RE: tjubs blog - Skink - 01-17-2014 07:42 AM

Simple and effective! I remember that someone glued Necron weapon barrels to their  model, and the results were quite cool!


RE: tjubs blog - Bassman - 01-17-2014 09:05 AM

Fast and easy but lacks of something. The barrel need to be beefed up a little bit. After all they are suposed to work like an halberd or pole weapons......


RE: tjubs blog - Bloodbeard - 01-17-2014 02:52 PM

Been making my fireglaives allmost the same way. You can check them out in my blog - I like them. But I've cut the handgun near the muzzle, glued on the axehead and then re-attached the muzzle. It gives the gun some extra length.

Used some marauder axeheads for extra evil skull factor.

You could also add some spiky blades from Dark Eldar or Chaos Knights. Relatively cheap and evil.


RE: tjubs blog - Admiral - 01-17-2014 03:27 PM

A tip: Try to turn the axe head the other way around, and trim down a bit of it to a point. That'll give you a fat bayonet, perfect for Dwarfs. At least it worked well for Squats.

Yeah that was me, link is in my signature. The only difference is that I've used the old bb models for mine, but I guess they can work just fine on plastic dwarfs.


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 01-19-2014 03:26 PM

Drilling holes in the barrels. ... Why haven't I thought of that. Idea stolen.

Thanks for adding work to already finished models. I'm gonna have to drill holes in my painted fire glaives.

And I must take my hat off for your conversions. You make truly awesome dawi zharr. Big hats, big noses, large beard.

Truly unique, no army looks even remotely like yours.

I still chuckle when thinking about the way you upgraded the FW bull centaurs (some of the best models ever) - whick is everytime I work on my own.

I remove the pin with a nipper and then apply a small ball och GS. Smoothen it out with a finger and water. Until its "dome" shaped and remove the excess when its dry. If you look at the pics in the recent post you can see Ive left a GS trim there not yet removed.

As for tusks, I don't know. Make a ball of GS, divide it in two. Make to small cones, apply them to the modell. First shape them pointing out from the face and then angle the tip back in. Does this make any sense? Tongue Wink

The plan is that three ballons will be six K'daiis. They will be dropping bombs all over the place and hacking with weapons. Two CDs in each. Ill put them on flight stands 1-2 cm up and magnetize them as well.

RE: tjubs blog - Skink - 03-06-2014 06:00 AM

That is an amazing idea my friend!!! On the three "empty" bases you should put some CD "ground crews", maybe with tanks of Helium, a First aid kit (that would look hilarious), toolkits, and obviously a big stack of bombs to restock the balloons in case they run dry! This would not only look more complete on the battlefield, but will also provide a nice fluffy diorama!

13500pts on the table seemed a lot, but doable. So we decided for a future game of 10000pts Greenskins vs 10000pts Chaos Dwarfs, sometime 2015 I assume. Respect to the Hat!

Ive been thinking about the crew for the ballons/kdaii. And while seeing 300:rise of an empire, I got a bit hooked on the flame throwing ship. So what do you think of a flame thrower/pourer instead of bombs? Its just an WIP and the other crew member is a stand in. Happy

Besides, tjub, how about decorating one or two of the b'loons with the skin of a flayed Greenskin or humie? I've come to realize that Mengil Manhide's look would be quite fashionable with Chaos Dwarfs.


RE: tjubs blog - Bloodbeard - 03-25-2014 12:15 PM

That's some nice crew members. A clever way to use those instrument. I know it's not the style of your army. But wouldn't some masks (under the big hats of cause) be appropriate? Wouldn't want to burn your mustache with that flame thrower.

At 3000 points I'll start constructing an air ship (to serve as a second destroyer). So this is a great inspiration.


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 03-26-2014 02:30 AM

Thanks all, but for the medal I really hope it goes to Nicodemus this year!

@Admiral: Hmm, human skin on the ballons seems a bit too much. I don't see them as that sinister, but as for a character its a great concept! Ive been thinking about adding a rotor och some fins. But that would make them even more fragile and harder to store.

@Bloodbeard: Maybe a mask of some kind could work, but I fear it would be huge to cover the nose and tusks. Maybe some bigger glasses, Astragoth style?

I need something like this for my Astrogoth vs Drazhoath. A giant siege battle.

What kind of material are you using for this?

I'm building from styrofoam - and that is rather messy. But I paint the surface with multiklæb. It's a cement used for "glueing" up ceramic tiles. But when the fliseklib "tile glue" powder is mixed with water, it's easy to paint on surfaces. Great way to make something look like stone.

Looking forward to seeing the K'daii Ballon Airfield.


RE: tjubs blog - Admiral - 04-03-2014 04:48 AM

Great build so far. Have you thought about crenellations?

Haha, that would indeed be awesome! Don't know the name of the material, its something between thick plastic card and styrofoam. Its hard and but porous enough to be cut with a carpet knife. Its a great material and we used it a lot for building Stalingrad 15mm before. Had a friend who worked for a big recycling company in sweden and they used it to make signs. Needless to say, the didn't use all the signs and got new designs every now and then so we have a stash. Wink

The plan is to paint it kinda the same as the boats I have. Look far back in the thread if you haven't seen them.

Don't have any plans to add crenellations, but the walls and towers will get pimped much like the gatehouse/fort. Its very much WIP this far.

Edit: Bloodbeard, if you vist Gothenburg send me a PM. Wink


RE: tjubs blog - sotek222 - 04-04-2014 01:23 AM

That looks incredible! Shock

If you do happen upon the name of the material please let me know as Ive been looking for new materials to try out for terrain!


Thank You,
Matthew

RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 04-07-2014 03:18 AM


Thats 360 studs so far, 56 on each tower... dead


Started some decorations on the walls.


No sure where the doors are on the GW fortress or if it really matters, but I put two on each wall section so at least on will always be close t o a tower.


Slowly...

Btw, any suggestions for painting? Ive have two ideas so far A: base of red , a lot like my boats. B: Try to get some kind of Obsidian feeling to the walls with metal mounts.
Also, been thinking about adding a wooden deck on top of the walls and towers. Doesn't really feel logic, but I might look better with something to disrupt all the red/obsidian.


RE: tjubs blog - Admiral - 04-07-2014 04:05 AM

A base of red would probably be logical given your naval squadron and army. Or otherwise you could keep the walls dark, like obsidian and rivetted iron, with some torches for OSL lighting and only some chucked-in details (like Chaos stars, CD ancestor faces or fresques of Chaos Dwarfs in the wall) or corners of the fortress painted red. That way it won't detract too much attention from your red army.

Really nice work, by the way!

I know you were saying that you were not considering crenellations but if you do change your mind I found these for inspiration:

In hindsight I could have gone with crenellations, but since the fort is almost finished by now there won't be any. Ill get some updated photos of it later on but had to put it away for now. Hopefully it will be painted before summer! Big Grin


RE: tjubs blog - Abecedar - 04-16-2014 06:14 AM

You could make them separate and add them on later.  Make them in two layers with the rear most resting on the parapet edge and the front one covering down over the front top edge of the parapet. If that makes sense.

RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 04-26-2014 05:24 AM

Just got this model from Eureka, going to use it as an Iron daemon. Was a bit surprised on the low quality of the cast, lots of air bubbles and the tracks were a bit deformed.

Am I correct that the Iron Daemon is supposed to be based on a 60x100 base?



Couldn't resist to start on the tank commander as well, originally I was planning for a more original WWII german tank commander pose. But this will have to do, wasn't in the mood to sculpt new hand for him... Happy


RE: tjubs blog - Thommy H - 04-26-2014 05:37 AM

It doesn't have a specific base size as it's a Unique unit and the model isn't sold with one. However, since most of its rules count it as a chariot I'd put it on a chariot base (50 x 100mm)


RE: tjubs blog - Kera foehunter - 04-26-2014 10:21 AM

Panzer! I love it. First Fuggit and now this. A great day to visit the forums.

I like it and the size and shape fits really well with the look of your other stuff Tjub.

The base deserves a bit more details I think. Perhaps som "muddy" tank tracks behind the thing..

And I would love to see some army shots when those ballons and a tank enters the army.

Its about time to update that "1000pts" medal with a more shiny one, so here is  photo of yesterdays army and battle. 4000pts Tamurkhan Vs Greenskins. A great battle and a minor victory for the Chaos Dwarfs, most unepic moment was when about 600pts Bullcentaurs were hit by a single fanatic during a charge, lost two BC turned and fled and subsequent were chased run down by three Goblin Wolf Riders the next turn... Hobgoblinas hut





The new Iron Daemon performed really well, and kept a unit of 50 Savage Orc Big Uns including a Big Boss hammering on it for several turns! Cheers!

More of a huge ballon than a zeppelin... Happy

I know most people would like some more details on them, but I guess Im a bit of a minimalistic in these cases. Same as the bases Im afraid.
Not sure about the color on the ballons themselves, the red-brown is used for leather in the army but I felt that the ballons might be a too big area for the color?


RE: tjubs blog - Fuggit Khan - 05-31-2014 01:13 PM

RE: tjubs blog - The Black Knight - 06-01-2014 07:27 PM

Love the balloon idea!  I just wish there was more of a useful unit to use for them.  Maybe in the next edition it will add ally rules and there will be gyrocopters, Pegasus knights, or terradons in the allies list.

Anything that makes a little more sense in the Warriors of Chaos list?  Marauder horsemen perhaps?


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 06-02-2014 12:51 AM

RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 06-26-2014 02:21 AM

Thanks, I like the ballons as well. But Im afraid they proved a bit to fragile to be a good concept for the kdaii, so Ill have to look for another idea. Ill save some of them to be used either in naval warhammer or as some kinde of CD variant of the gyrocopter later on...


Puh, 30 warriors were a big batch. Progress is sloow, but I think they will look great once finished... Happy


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 06-26-2014 02:59 AM

To be honest Ive actually tried another Kdaii concept that I havent shared yet... Shame on me, this must be the 7th or 8th attempt. Takes Hat off


Foliage and super glue.



Soaked in a mix of PVA and water.





Though they looked good the too proved to fragile to be used as gaming models and some even fell apart during painting. Maybe it could have worked if they would be soaked in super glue instead but that would be a bit too expensive...


RE: tjubs blog - Bloodbeard - 06-26-2014 03:11 AM

Good idea Tjub. I've used that idea for warmachine smoke. The trick is wire core and superglue bath.

With the cheapest superglue 3 small tubes for 18 dkr. I should be a reasonable price. I used around 2.5 tube pr kdaii. You'll properly need 4.

I'll buy you a bunch and post if needed.

Amazed that you manage to give them any form at all.

maybe if you used some sort of plasticard/greenstuff to make armor to help support the shape?  Though that would make your k'daii look perhaps too similar to the forgeworld ones...


RE: tjubs blog - Admiral - 06-27-2014 03:08 AM

You've had a lot of K'daai hassle, that's for sure! The foliage fire golem looked good. You'll probably be able to field an army of K'daai Fireborn with all the different variant you've gone through.

The face is pretty quick, I usually do them in four parts. 1 the hat, 2 the beard+arms, 3 rest of the hair/beard, 4 the face.
When doing the face I start with 1 the mustache and then stick the rest on there, 2 the lip, 3 teeth, 4 nose.
I guess it would take 5-10 mins to do a face, I have no clue really. And about the GS, I never mix the right amount... Happy

RE: tjubs blog - Admiral - 07-04-2014 11:42 AM

It looks like a nice start, but will you give it more details, or a different texture?

How many points of K'daai Fireborn will you have with that unit, if you add up all previous attempts?

If this attempt also goes awry, how about Ogre Firebelly Maneaters with CD beards and hats? Tongue

RE: tjubs blog - ThorAxe - 07-04-2014 11:05 PM

Ever consider painting the k'daii fire things in a not fire color?  If there is to be fire as a part of the golem, maybe paint it a different color, like blue or green?  Perhaps to represent the magical/daemonic nature of the beast, while having the opportunity to paint something other than red, brown, and black


RE: tjubs blog - torn - 07-05-2014 04:16 AM

Just out of curiosity what material are you using? It looks quite soft.

No idea what its called, but its actually quite sturdy. Some kind of insulation foam I guess... The plan is to give it a coat of 50/50 water/PVA to give it a smoother surface and the paint it like obsidian. No idea how it will turn out, but had to try the idea. Happy

RE: tjubs blog - Admiral - 07-13-2014 04:11 PM

Seeing those nice freehand flames on the shield I'm now convinced you need to make some sharper highlight points on the golem. Perhaps a little yellow mixed in?


RE: tjubs blog - torn - 07-13-2014 04:48 PM

I think it may be a case that the golems are just too plain and there isn't a lot you can do with them even if you are a good freehand painter. Maybe a light drybrushing on the black with a very light complimentary pastel colour?

Although it might be something as simple as picking out the eyes just to give it a bit life. I do love the idea and the build of the golem is great I just think it needs something to set it apart.

Have you painted any of the others yet?


RE: tjubs blog - Helblindi - 07-14-2014 03:34 AM

Looks nice, but not finished. Maybe if you gave the eyes and the joints a bit of a glow, like he's on fire on the inside, and it shines through his eye sockets and any gaps in the rocky hide.


RE: tjubs blog - Skink - 07-14-2014 03:44 AM

I like it! It's your best attempt to date, plus is something unique that nobody has tried (yet). Still, I don't know why you decided to make a new Destroyer. The previous one was awesome.


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 07-14-2014 04:21 AM

To be honest Im sick and tired of painting lava/flames/anything orange and yellow. So he will most likely not glow any time soon...

Agree the model is plain, but after all its supposed to be a golem made of obsidian so he'll be black and not a very exciting model Im afraid. Could try and add some brighter high lights if you think that would be better? Those who suggested eyes, do you mean green eyes, "lava" or googly eyes?Tongue Wink

Im not 100% satisfied with this attempt either, its too plain. But considering price, time and effort Ill finish a unit and see. Happy

@Skink: Guess the main problem here is that I see the Destroyers as simply a bigger version of K'daiis, a big brother.


RE: tjubs blog - torn - 07-14-2014 05:00 AM

Ha ha these guys would look great with a couple of googly eyes stuck on them.


RE: tjubs blog - Helblindi - 07-14-2014 05:33 AM

For obsidian golems: maybe some more texture, to make it look like rock? And/or it could be cool to carve some runes into him...


RE: tjubs blog - ThorAxe - 07-14-2014 05:48 PM

I really like it, though glowing eyes of some sort might make it look a bit better.  In terms of the destroyer, rather than make a larger golem, you can give it a different shape?  I always toyed with the idea of using the araknarok spider as a base for one, maybe something similar?


RE: tjubs blog - Trupie - 07-14-2014 10:59 PM

Personally Tjub, they're not working for me. They just seem too plain.

I think you have a great start, but it needs more to be ready for primetime. I think if you added more prominent veining to the obsidian it'd read better as being stone.

I also think that it'd tie into your army REALLY nicely if you gave them big bushy eyebrows of green fire. The green is the complement of red, so in theory it'd still fit with the army, while still standing out and being different.


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 07-16-2014 06:00 PM

Ill try and give the golems a bit more contrast on the edges, but I think that will have to do...

Got some paint on the Scimitar Warriors, it will be a nice unit to field once all of them get painted.

Hehe, thanks... But its rather fast and easy to do.


Anyway, added some scorpion green high lights to the K'daii but that will have to do for now.

I think before that it was better.  It was more realistic. Never saw such a that much green highlighted Obsidian. Wink


True, as far as I know it is as balck as black gets. But an all black golem on the table wouldn't be much fun, with more high lights it pops a lot more on the tabletop at least. Maybe its a warpstone golem, but don't tell the Skaven or we'll drown in their fan mails... Happy


RE: tjubs blog - Najaa - 07-17-2014 05:26 PM

Hi great job on the golem, maybe à Little wash for better rendering.

And what do you think about some green cristals on thé ground ? Just like Necron if you see what i mean.


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 07-18-2014 07:15 AM

Finally got some paint on the palanquin.






Did the stone on the staff to match with the golems, plan to paint the glaives of the acolytes similar.



RE: tjubs blog - Malorndk - 07-18-2014 07:47 AM

Awesome palaquinn (#spelling?)
Great conversion, lovely figure, and awesome colors.
Maybe a little color on the throne, icon so it isn't as black? Like some red or something?

But anyways: Wildly inspiring. Ill go paint myself asap due to this update.


RE: tjubs blog - Admiral - 07-18-2014 01:32 PM

Great palanquin. The golem looks better now. Happy


RE: tjubs blog - MadHatter - 07-18-2014 03:17 PM

Shock

Amazing shields on the scimitars... Palanquin looks fantastic! Perhaps the golem would go better with some orange/reddish highlighting however it does go real well together with the sorcerer's warpstone. The design is real cool Happy


RE: tjubs blog - Thommy H - 07-18-2014 03:41 PM

Love it!


RE: tjubs blog - Bolg - 07-18-2014 08:46 PM

Wow Tjub, even moer incarnations of the kadaai.

"you are the man" is an understatement...!


RE: tjubs blog - Bloodbeard - 07-19-2014 08:00 PM

Good work Tjub. I think the obsidian golem k'daii fits your army the best (of all your k'daii). Very simple models, but the fit the clean look of your force.

That palanquin turned out great. That semi-petrified sorcerer looks real cosy under that blanket of his.

I think so too, but that might change as we have come to know... Tongue

Btw, here is the bigger brother.



RE: tjubs blog - Admiral - 07-23-2014 11:06 AM

They reminds me of the old Stål Kalle (Duck Avenger) comics, which is great. Nice Destroyer!


RE: tjubs blog - TheHoodedMan - 07-28-2014 09:15 AM

Your models have such a unique design. Both awesome modelling and a great and consistent paint job.

RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 07-30-2014 08:36 AM


Here are the Kdaii Fireborn and the Destroyer. Had to make one extra Fireborn since this little fella had dismembered on of them during the night. But now they all got a coat of PVA and are safe in a drawer for the time being. Unsure

And here I was getting annoyed that Saber tusks were redirecting my destroyers.  Did not realize their larger cousins could dismantle them so easily.

Your cat is a great Destroyer, just a bit of lava and it's good to go WinkWink


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 07-31-2014 08:39 AM

Indeed, he's some kind of Khorne servant at least...

Father and son, I know they might not be everybody's cup of tea. But they fit me just fine: the Destoyer looks like the bigger version of the Fireborn, cheap and easy, no flames, sturdy, easy to transport and fits my army concept just fine. Can it really be that this is the final version?...

Ofcourse not. CDO wouldn't be the same without your eternal search for the perfect k'daai.

This must be the end of your K'daai quest. Warpstone golems looks great. Cheers!


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 08-07-2014 05:49 AM

Finished my Chaos Dwarf outpost/tower/gatehouse. Its built to be an outpost but built a door attachable to the back with magnets so it can serve as a gate house/main entrance for the castle/city as well.

Color suggestions? Im thinking red/metal like the boats or maybe "warpstoneish" Tongue Wink obsidian like the golems.










RE: tjubs blog - Bloodbeard - 08-07-2014 06:56 AM

I say obsidian! It'll look super nice with your big red hats clearly sticking out. They'll be camouflaged is the building is red.

And how cool is it go summon obsidian guardians directly from the castle walls itself?


RE: tjubs blog - Admiral - 08-07-2014 07:43 AM

Obsidian would help tie your Golems into your collection. Like Bloodbeard said, it's also cool to imagine the walls calfing Golems to defend the fortress. But you also need red somewhere.

Whatever colour you choose, you've done a hell of a job on those! But how about crenellations? You could add simple dags or mini-ziggurat crenellations like on Babylonian walls. Also, how about making a Golem or several sunk into the walls, as if he's emerging from it?


RE: tjubs blog - tjub - 08-07-2014 08:26 AM

@Bloodbeard & Admiral: Thats a great idea! Im tempted to go for the obsidian, a golem emerging form a wall or a tower would be a nice touch. Magnetised so it would be easy to store etc.
Don't know why, but Im not sold on crenellations. Maybe a future addition or for another project...

Not sure what could be red on the fortress, but I thought about adding "fire cauldrons". Maybe try some sources lightning with an airbrush, but Ive never done it so might just ruin it all instead.
