RE: The Red Host of Nir-Kezhar [09-14-2014]Admiral 09-20-2014

@Lazerus: Thank you!

@Fuggit Khan: Great! They'll get their chance once I post this by the start of next week. For now, it dries. Hashut!


Do It Yourself Flayman: Finishing Touches

Step 19

Sculpt a skull on a stick. Start by applying a ball of green stuff to a needle, pinhead or paperclip. Shape into an oval shape and mark the jaw by pressing in the green stuff under the cheekbones (1) with your sculpting tool. Create a skull out of this by making sockets, nose cavity, marking the jaw and refining the overall shape into a cranium (2). Use reference pictures or mimic skulls on other models. Using sculpting tool and hobby knife, score teeth into the skull and any scratchings you want to adorn it (3).

This skull was given the Harry Potter treatment on the forehead, though lightning scarred crania predates said book series. It was also given some more knife marks on the backside, since Fuggit Khan (the receiver of the flayman) is a known Hobgoblin fan.




Step 20

Before:



Now for additional decorations! These could be anything you fancy. You could plunder your bitz box for trophies and spikes, or you could sculpt something of your own. A cut-off tounge was added, hanging from the string. To be in no doubt as to who commited this vile act of savagery, a couple of knives were sculpted (one around a paper clip), tucked under the string or plunged between two bricks. Adding to the impression of Greenskin, backstabbing villains, a stylized stone totem/effigy/statuette Chaos Dwarf figure was sculpted around a piece of plastic sprue beside the brick base, with a ragged piece of Hobgoblin headgear adorning it. Such desecration will surely result in bloody punishment when the Chaos Dwarfs find out!

As can be seen on the flayed Elf further down in the tutorial, another thing to do is to add a stone with inscriptions, perhaps boasting of the Chaos Dwarfs' victory, cursing their enemies and threatening any slave or foreigner who would dare rise up against their cruel might.

After:



The backside of the struts received a couple of lightning symbols and knots for the string.



And now onto the runes adorning the bulls' horn struts! Steeped in sorcerous and potent mysticism, they serve as warning, boast, dedication to Hashut and curses to summon foul Daemons upon anyone foolish enough to defile this grotesque in any manner. The runes shown above and below were copied in green stuff from reference pictures of 4th edition artwork and Forgeworld's campaign book Tamurkhan: The Throne of Chaos. Fuggit Khan's Human flayman above were given Tamurkhan runes for Hobgoblins/assassins, slave, domination and death. MadHatter's flayed elf was instead given runes from the 4th edition's Prophet staff, with one Tamurkhan rune of dominion/ownership to round it out. Mix and match however you like, this is for Chaos after all!

A tip for rune sculpting is to start with a thin layer of green stuff, which you then shape and "cut out" excess bits to get the desired shape.



These, and Dark Tounge symbols could all be used, as well as made-up runes of your own. For your convenience we have included pictures of various Chaos runes. Beware, lest the unholy and obscene meaning of these mysterious scripts will claim your sanity and soul:











Not to forget the Dwarfen ancestry of the Dawi Zharr, here are some Khazalid pictograms:











Last, but not least, is the Rune of Hashut:



And there you have it! Making a flayman can prove a challenge, but it is a fun and varied challenge. Based on this tutorial you can discard or add things however you like. Ignoring the brick platform will cut down the work hours, raiding your bitz box could also help. The possibilities are endless, and as your first flayman sees the light of day, the call of Hashut, the Father of Darkness, beckons you to further victories and fell deeds of bloodshed and horror. Whether you opt for flanking the whole road to Zharr-Naggrund with the flayed hides of your enemies (perhaps 2D parodies of your friends' army generals?) or remain content with but a single grotesque, know that one thing is always assured: The terror visited upon your enemies at the sight of your flayman.

RE: The Red Host of Nir-Kezhar [09-20-2014]Bloodbeard 09-20-2014

A truly amazing result Admiral. Making small runes like that sucks! I think it's some of the hardest stuff to do with green stuff, it's so hard to get small amount to stick - and then model with it afterwards.

Collecting warhammer, and still feeling a need to make green stuff skulls - that just seems masochistic. There's skulls in almost every box!

I actually thought about a silicone mold I would love to have (because thing wont stick to it). A mold with 20 or so different skulls in it. I always end up with excess miliput/green, then just put it in a form at get more skulls over time, with no work.

@Dînadan: Thanks!

@Bloodbeard: Thanks! Yeah, I always hesitate a bit before doing runes. But it gets easier with practice. As for skulls, sculpting them is a great way to sharpen sculpting skills. Big Grin

Alright, the whole flayman tutorial is up here, including story piece.


Warmth. Comfort. Rest. Swathed in darkness, the mind of a man drifted between consciousness and sleep upon the swampy mangrove shores of distant Pigbarter. It was a mind suckling this rare peace. It was a mind as hardened as the gnarled body it inhabited.

Originally from Marienburg, the man had spent so many years of his life upon the decks of Tilean vessels that he barely could speak his native language. It had been a life of hardship and plight, especially so the childhood years. Beaten, hungry and weathered by icy winds and howling storms, he had made the sea his homeland and the ships his shifting homes.

High up in the rigging and masts, he had toiled and endured when the roping flayed the skin from off his hands. They were callused hands with fingers hooked like claws, barely able to straighten after thousands of hours of labour. Yet they were also able hands with tool and weapon alike, and as he grew into adulthood his natural talent for fighting had become apparent.

Seeking his luck, the young man had become a buccaneer, a pirate, a scourge and bandit of the seas. There he had witnessed wonders and horrors which no son of the land would ever witness or believe. Death and disease had been his companions as much as fortune and success.

It had been a hard life, broken only by bursts of drunkeness and pleasure, yet it has been his life. That life was about to end.

- - -


Cold. Pain. Panic. Swathed in rags and dried blood, the body of a man scrambled to rise and run, acutely aware of danger like never before. Even the act of breathing seemed to tear at his lungs. Pressing aside the limp corpse of a man, he got up on his knees and rose up.

"Oi! Boss! Ere'z un more!" The sharp voice spoke of cruelty and knives. It came from behind, somewhat to his left if he was any judge. With ears ringing like bells, it might have come from right in front of him.

The man started to run, one foot bloodied and naked, the other still stuck in his shoe. Panting with agonized lungs, he pumped with his arms and legs to escape. Around him, he caught glimpses of a massacre among the mangrove trees. Inhuman shapes moved about in groups, stabbing and hacking into the bodies of dying men. Moans and screams of agony were in the air, as were the putrid stench of death, swamp and salty sea. He had to get out!

Jumping over the corpses of his first helmsman and some greenskinned bogeyman, he spotted a thicket of old trees and ran for it. In there, he might escape any pursuers...

A whirling throwing knife cut into his back and sent him splashing into a pool of muddy water and blood. The knife must have penetrated one of his lungs. He could not breathe, he could not breathe!  The pain paralyzed him.

Someone's foot planted itself on him, stamping hard. Yet the blade was slid out from his back, leaving him sprawled on the ground, gasping and coughing blood.

"Zee wut da wolf dragged in..." said the same, sharp voice. Then it yelled: "Tell da stuntees! We've got da kap'n!"

The man tried to turn around, but was pinned down by the creature. He was too weak to resist, in any case. It was time to give up the struggle. He resigned himself to his fate. Above him, he heard the sound of blades being sharpened.

"Ere dey come," said the voice. The foot was removed from his back. With an effort, he turned around in the puddle, staring up into an abomination flanked by a handful of ugly Greenskins.

"Horns and hooves," the short monster spat in an odd dialect. It seemed to be some kind of Dwarf, dressed in exotic armour and wearing the highest hat the man had ever seen. It bore a bizarre shield and some sort of scimitar. "You will speak, and you will suffer."

"Yes," he managed to say in a weak voice, coughing more blood.

"I, Warlord Uhr-Uruk Hamzhibinzulbar Blackeye of the Red Host, have hereby trampled your forces into dust and death," said the foreign Dwarf. "For the sake of my liege, Sorcerer-Prophet Nir-Kezhar, I hereby claim all your belongings and all survivors of your followers as loot and slaves. May the four Daemons of myth - Azhar, Talkrun, Cid'Jaelogschin and Kairos - act as witnesses for this oath, for I hereby swear that high Hashut will be given His sacred due of the booty upon the sacrificial pyre before the sun sets, in view of His mighty idols."

When the creature had finished rambling, it bowed down to the exhausted manling.

"You will tell me your name, and you will suffer," the Chaos Dwarf growled.

The man didn't even try to resist. "Mikael Hauptmann," he managed to say, "captain of the three vessels..."

Uhr-Uruk Hamzhibinzulbar darted forward, grabbing his head with one arm and crushing down on his chin with the butt of his scimitar. Mikael struggled in vain as the Warlord pulled out his tounge and cut it off. The captain tried to scream without success as blood flowed from his mouth. Such pain! It made him dizzy, but not dizzy enough to miss what was said next:

"Mikael Hauptmann," the evil creature smacked with his own tounge, as though trying the syllables for the first time. He tossed the human's cut-off tounge to one of the nearby, gangly Greenskins. "Here! You know what to do, Khan. I want this wretched foe strung up yet flat as though the thunderous hooves of Hashut Himself had trampled and crushed his worthless body. It will be finished before the evening sacrifices, or you and your... retinue will burn!"

"Aye-aye!" said one of the Hobgoblins as the Warlord walked away.

They gathered around Mikael, closing in with sadistic smiles, producing knives as though out of nowhere and reaching for him with grins that were all fangs and tusks. The leader, or at least the one with the biggest hat, took a stranglehold around the human's throat and ordered:

"Say 'Aaah'!"

The victim complied.


Hashut!

@Abecedar: Thanks! There's still more in the Tamurkhan book's artwork, not to mention on FW's CD models.

@Helblindi: Haha. Big Grin

My brother and some people on tournaments have begun telling me to paint my army and finish it already. Since they've got a point I'll try to direct more energy towards finishing my own stuff, though things like the mystery K'daai and the upcoming flayman prize won't be neglected. WIP or future sculpts to get cast will have to wait, however.

I'm eager to complete the daemon cannon, though it can't be assembled before all the parts have been painted. This is the first time I've had to paint before assembly. I usually avoid it at all costs. For starters, here are the feetwheels:



The aim was to make them look gritty, and even caked with ash, dirt and soot from miles upon miles of travel through the Dark Lands. Most of the rest of the cannon will be cleaner.

Because the camera washes out the paintjob it also counters the purpose of this update. E.g. the layers of red/skin highlights that shine through the washes to the real eye are lost on the pictures. The wheels also look darker in reality.

Regardless, do you have any ideas for improving the wheels?

No. They look perfect, don't do anything to them. Theirs a good contrast between the redish skin and the lighter metal. Keep that going on the rest - and don't make it cleaner.

Looks like a metallic with a wash over it. I don't know what lengths you are up for going to, but two good ways to cake them would be some dark pigments (MiG or AK are good) used with fixer and built up in layers to create a nice buildup. You can make your own cheap pigments by grinding down Oil Pastels using a metal tea strainer, then all you need is a fixer.

Sprinkling plaster of paris over patches which you have dampened with water from a paintbrush and building it up layer by layer is another great way of adding dirt. If you want more lumpy dirt just make up a thick plaster of paris solution and paint it on with a brush (possibly with some sand mixed in) Also Polyfilla does a nice job. I used to make my Ork Epic buildings out of it as a mud render for the outside of walls.

RE: The Red Host of Nir-Kezhar [10-15-2014]Admiral 10-24-2014

@Bloodbeard: Thanks, although in reality the metal is darker. I'll be sure to keep it gritty on most if not all of the warmachine.

@Dînadan: We'll go for Blood for the Blood God! instead. Later on, when I buy it. Wink

@Fuggit Khan: You made me do it. Now there's Hashut copper on the rivets. Tongue Wink Thanks!

@Sticklander: Thank you!

@Doombeard: Thank you! Very useful tips. I'll look into it later on. At the moment I'm just working with normal paints. There is some amount of dark grey and brown dirt over the wheels, but the re-highlighting with Mithril Silver have played down that.

@Helblindi: Thanks! Then we'll continue down that route.

Quick update. Some more paint has found its way to the warmachine parts. Fuggit Khan is the winner of Golden Hat XXI by virtue of rocketry and wins his second flayman. No, make that flaywoman! Fuggit didn't want to leave out the ladies for this one. Wink

This will become a Witch Elf, but I've run into a lack of materials.

The hooked dental floss has been discontinued. This is bad for bull's head silhouette flaymen, and it's not too good for your teeth since you reached the backside of your teeth better with it than any other alternatives. So now the flaywoman will have to get sculpted pretty much flat on whilst I wear out two somewhat similar floss pieces. They won't be as good, simple and elegant as the old floss, but they'll suffice.



OK, there are two options for the struts:



Which one is best? It's Fuggit Khan's decision in the end. Happy

Just watched "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" and in the bit where he first gets down into the temple (106 minutes) there are Flayed Men in the windows blowing gently in a breeze.

Was this your inspiration for them?
