[HUGE update! 11-26-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - BoomBoom - 11-12-2013 05:53 PM

So long time lurker, first posting anything of real value here.  After recently meeting Swissdicator at a tournament I have decide to create an army blog here as well.  He encouraged me posted my work and I'm feeling good today and trying to kill a little time before class, so I figured what the hell.  Here we go....

So my CD army is named, The Legion of Hashut.  I may change this in the new near future as I have received feedback that it may be too bland and not memorable.  Let me know your thoughts on the matter if you have some.  Anyways, I have been building this force since Jan of this year (2013) and have had a blast painting these little buggers.  My utlimate goal is a 5000pt army with 1500pts of ogre allies.  In addition, I would like to have every unit in the army list represented regardless of gameplay value.  

I already have quite a bit of the army completed, so I should be able to make multiple posts over the next couple of days with new pics.  Also, I would like to point out that I am very much a novice when it comes to taking pics of miniatures.  This something I am working on getting better at.

Without further ado, we'll kick this blog off with a BANG and present to my destroyer.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.  Let me know if you have any questions.  Hope these links work!


















RE: The Legion of Hashut - An Army Blog - BoomBoom - 11-12-2013 05:54 PM

hmmm... links arent working.  I will work on this.  My pics are hosted on Snapfish if anyone has any pointers.  Sorry for the let down!

I have a google account and a google account has picasa. I just made a public gallery in my picasa web, upload my pictures there and link to their URL.

Free, easy and they'll stay there forever. Check out Picasa Web Albums.


RE: The Legion of Hashut - An Army Blog - Nicodemus - 11-13-2013 01:03 AM

I can enter them directly:

Code:
http://images2.snapfish.com/232323232%7Ffp54399%3Enu%3D4637%3E6%3C4%3E334%3EWSNRCG%3D367 95687%3A%3A34%3Anu0mrj


For some reason the pasted link above also displays with an inserted white space between the "%3D367 95687%3A%3A34%3Anu0mrj" which shouldn't be if anyone wants to copy/paste it.

Looks like snapfish.com uses some pretty funky image links, typing in your URLs directly results in an incompatible URL with "" and ">" brackets, and the like.


RE: The Legion of Hashut - An Army Blog - BoomBoom - 11-13-2013 08:49 PM

BUmp!  

Thanks to Bloodbeard's advice, I got the links to work.  Pics were either very small or quite large.  I went with the large.


RE: [Links Fixed!] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Dînadan - 11-13-2013 08:58 PM

Nice conversion Happy

Only criticism is the way you paint fire - the colours should go from light to dark as you work your way up through the highlights (fire burns hottest at its centre).  Still, even that doesn't stop it being good work Happy


RE: [Links Fixed!] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - sotek222 - 11-13-2013 09:07 PM

Awesome conversion the head works perfectly with that body!


RE: [Links Fixed!] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - BoomBoom - 11-13-2013 09:14 PM

Just threw a few more pics on Picasa and thought I would share.  This time my Hellcannon.  You will notice it is comprised of a chariot base and 4 regimental bases.  I did this b/c he doubles as an ironblaster.  Simply remove him from the center of the movement tray and BOOM you got an Ironblaster (also the reason for the goblin scraper on the base)

With further ado, I give you my Hellcannon.  He was a real hoot to paint.  I hope you enjoy him and perhaps he inspires a few...














RE: [Links Fixed!] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - giantsquig - 11-14-2013 01:07 AM

Love the hell canon! I may steal that idea....


RE: [Links Fixed!] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - tjub - 11-14-2013 01:23 AM

Love the original conversions, and great painting as well! My only criticism, as noted before, is the fire which should be the "inverted".

Glad it helped man.

I really like your work. The subtle lamassu head on the balrog is perfect for a destroyer. And the daemonsmith standing with the destroyer is cool, will have to add something similar.

And your Hellcannon is great. The beard and the horns makes the giant look like a very traditional demon.

Also it makes much more sense for this guy to go on an murderous eating spree than the cannon.

Damn! This is all really cool! And I don't share the opinions of the others about the fire painting - it looks excellent.
After all, we play Warhammer Fantasy here. Because of that no one should shit his pants when fire doesn't glow in the correct direction.

Cheers!Takes Hat off


I think you need to shit your pants even in the warhammer world, because then there is so serieus magic at work.


RE: [Links Fixed!] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Skink - 11-14-2013 04:44 AM

Wow! 2 models, 2 conversions! Excellent minis sir, can't wait to see what's next!


RE: [Links Fixed!] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Admiral - 11-14-2013 05:19 AM

This might turn out to be one of the best converted Chaos Dwarf armies yet seen. Normally I would also point out the most realistic way to paint fire, but your flames nevertheless looks so good you should keep them that way.


RE: [Links Fixed!] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Yodrin - 11-14-2013 05:41 AM

Very nice conversions!!! Great colors, and the bases look awesome!!! Great work, keep it up and keep em cominHappy


RE: [Links Fixed!] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Zanko - 11-14-2013 03:05 PM

The Hellcannon is really awesome! Takes Hat off

Excellent conversion and cool paintjob! Cheers!

Want to see more of your stuff! Wink


                      Hashut!


RE: [Links Fixed!] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - BoomBoom - 11-14-2013 06:51 PM

Another update!  First thanks to all for the words of encouragement. As for the inverted flame colors, I fully understand the feedback.  I actually painted some test models in the suggested method.  It was okay, but really didn't fit my style per-se.  Then I painted the flames in the manner you see now, and had a ton of fun doing it, so it stuck!

Anywho, on to the next.  Next model is the pain train.  No conversion on this one, just stock.  I do plan on adding a smoke plume to the exhaust pipe at some time.  With that, I go "CHUG A CHUG CHO CHOO!" and present the Iron Daemon.....













Lastly, I leave you with something new, a 360 youtube video I embedded.  Enjoy...




RE: [11-14-2013 Iron Daemon] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Xx9millxX - 11-14-2013 07:08 PM

The kdaii and hell cannon are pretty sick.. Nice color scheme


RE: [11-14-2013 Iron Daemon] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Bolg - 11-14-2013 07:28 PM

I love that hellcannon, those wrapped around chains are awesome!


RE: [11-14-2013 Iron Daemon] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - BoomBoom - 11-14-2013 08:33 PM

Quick add....  

Here's a 360 of the hellcannon/ironblaster.  Make sure to mute the volume or you'll hear music from the animated movie "Rio".  My two little girls were watching it at the time.




RE: [11-14-2013 Iron Daemon] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Abecedar - 11-14-2013 08:52 PM

Very nice stuff there Sir.


RE: [11-14-2013 Iron Daemon] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - BoomBoom - 11-14-2013 08:54 PM

Alright, killing some time before Adepticon tickets go on sale in 10min and thought i would post a few more picks.  However this time some CD-related terrain.  This stuff will eventually be part of my display board.  

With that, ask yourself....  "What does the volcano say?   BOOM, BOOM, BOOM, BOOM, MELT, MELT!"




























RE: [11-14-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Soulassassin - 11-15-2013 03:47 AM

Oooh, video! love it Happy Your hellcannon looks great, really like the way you paint lava as well.

What technique do you use for the lighting effect around the lava areas?


RE: [11-14-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Skamandude - 11-15-2013 04:26 AM

These terrain pieces are awesome. Did you make them yourself or buy them from somewhere? If you built them yourself - got any WIP shots? :p


RE: [11-14-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - BABIS - 11-15-2013 06:14 AM

wow fantastic pieces!!


RE: [11-14-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Dînadan - 11-15-2013 06:47 AM

Once more, nice painting - keep it up Happy


RE: [11-14-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Topota - 11-15-2013 08:37 AM

more lava, more lava!!! great work... By the way, the lava is done with some epoxy or paste, or some lava effect? its amazing!
thanks Cheers!


RE: [11-14-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - BoomBoom - 11-15-2013 10:03 AM

Thank you all once again for the all the support and compliments.  Now for some answers...

1.  How do you paint your lava?  Great question followed by an even better answer, which is "Word of Hashut #2."  This issue has an excellent tutorial written by this forum's very own Thommy H.  I started using this method on bases and then begun applying to larger models like these terrain pieces.  

2.  Where did you get those terrain pieces from?  The lava pool and volcano are from Mr. Dandy's Wargamma product line, which can be found here, http://www.mrdandy.com/wargamma/.  These are great scuplts.  I purchased a set of the lava pools and 2 volcanos, and couldnt be happier with my purchase.  My one word of advice if you purchase these is to wash the pieces really good when you get them.  My pieces had quite a bit of mold release agent on them and black primer repelled off of them.  

Should have more stuff to post soon, maybe tonight.


RE: [11-14-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Yodrin - 11-15-2013 12:21 PM

Excellent terain, awesomeness right there!!


RE: [11-14-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - BoomBoom - 11-18-2013 04:19 PM

Happy Monday blog followers.  Had the opportunity to take alot of photos this weekend and transfer some over from snapfish.   What I have for your today are some character models.  I hope you enjoy.

First a couple of daemonsmiths...











Now my BSB...






RE: [11-18-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - BABIS - 11-18-2013 04:30 PM

wow that icon is HUGE!!!


RE: [11-18-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - tjub - 11-19-2013 01:14 AM

Looks good, but I wouldn't want to be the poor guy who had to walk around with that on his back…. Shock


RE: [11-18-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Bloodbeard - 11-19-2013 01:51 AM

Where's the icon from? Its really awesome.

But that little guy just use all of his "no raging war days" doing squats at the local ziggurats fitness center.


RE: [11-18-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Soulassassin - 11-19-2013 03:43 AM

Awesome banner! Try ranking that fellow up (or running him though dangerous terrain) Wink

The sorcerers look great too, your color scheme is really effective. Not that many colors, but the smooth highlights and the bases make them stand out.


RE: [11-18-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Yodrin - 11-19-2013 07:22 AM

That banner is awesome!!! GO BIG OR GO HOME Wink

Very nice colors and basing as well!!


RE: [11-18-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - BoomBoom - 11-19-2013 09:44 AM

Thank you all for the words of encouragment and feedback.  As a note, the icon for the BSB is not on his back.  It actually is drilled through the base and is static (i.e. not connected to the model).    

As for the icon itself, it is an old 40K forgeworld icon they used to sell.  At one time it had khorne symbols on it.  I shaved them off.  If you search enay often, one pops up from time to time.    

I will be posting another unit later today.


RE: [11-18-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Yodrin - 11-19-2013 03:24 PM

Nice ID, and i love your bases!!!


RE: [11-18-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - BoomBoom - 11-19-2013 05:56 PM

New day, new blog update!  Next up are my warmachines.  A deathshrieker and magma cannon.  I have to say, I love the crew models for these warmachines.  IMO they are packed with life.  For example, I imagine the two dwarves on the deathshreiker debating something.  Perhaps range, unit to shoot, or who will win next Monday Night Football game.  Or maybe a knock-knock joke.  

Anywho, I present to you my warmachines....
























RE: [11-19-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Topota - 11-19-2013 07:16 PM

Nice base and colour scheme, good paintjob Pal!!!!


RE: [11-19-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Yodrin - 11-19-2013 07:22 PM

Still very nice!!! Good job !


RE: [11-19-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - BoomBoom - 11-20-2013 03:57 PM

Good Thursday blog followers.  I am very pleased to post another update today.  This time my unit of board and sword infernal guard unit, aka "the brick."   Someday I will go back and freehand some runes on the shields.  Enjoy!












RE: [11-20-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Admiral - 11-20-2013 07:34 PM

Excellent progress. Your army looks really good.


RE: [11-20-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - BoomBoom - 11-25-2013 07:31 PM

Good monday blog followers.  Today i have stormvermin kit-bashed hobo's for ya'll.  I hope you enjoy.  Let me know if there are any questions.  










RE: [11-25-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Topota - 11-25-2013 08:09 PM

those are gnoblars from GW or they are from other brand???

thank you and the unit is amazing!!


RE: [11-25-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - tjub - 11-26-2013 04:35 AM

Really good looking Hobbos! Happy


RE: [11-25-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Yodrin - 11-26-2013 06:08 AM

Smooth Hobbos, nice work!


RE: [11-25-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - BoomBoom - 11-26-2013 10:38 AM

Thanks once again for the compliments.  These models were a hoot to build and paint.

@Topota.  Here are the bits I used to make these sinister little buggers. And as Herby states, yes this is a popular kit-bash.  I actually got the build from someone on here.  I will have to go back and findout who originally posted them.
- Stormvermin body  
- Gnoblar Head
- Ungor bow arms


RE: [11-25-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - BoomBoom - 11-26-2013 12:58 PM

I have what i believe is a special treat for blog followers today, and that is Ogre Allies!  

First some ironguts with 2 bruisers (1 w/GW and the other a BSCool.  I intend on making some modifiable bases so i can use these as Bull Centaurs as well.  It was very tricky to get these guys to rank up with the models being so big.





Back rank & musiciian...


Champ solo shot...


Standard Solo shots...




BSB shots...




Bruiser w/GW shots...




Next up some 'count-as' mournfangs...
















I hope you enjoy these fellas as much as I do.  Thanks!

Nice idea!


RE: [HUGE update! 11-26-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - BABIS - 11-26-2013 01:55 PM

omg! are all of those original metal taurus/lammasu bodies? impressive!


RE: [HUGE update! 11-26-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Dînadan - 11-26-2013 02:38 PM

One thing to add, dunno if you've just done it for display shots, but in games the musician in the Ironguts unit should be in the front rank and one of the heroes should be in the second rank.


RE: [HUGE update! 11-26-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Yodrin - 11-26-2013 03:25 PM

Wow, a very cool idea, and very nice conversions!!! Great work!!


RE: [HUGE update! 11-26-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Topota - 11-26-2013 05:58 PM

thank you for the info boomboom; fantastic work with those Ogres!!! Takes Hat off


RE: [HUGE update! 11-26-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Sticklander - 04-01-2014 12:42 PM

Wow, what a fantastic army blog!
I love the black with red highlights armour. Makes for a very menacing looking force.

The destroyer and hellcannon are fantastically original!
I'm not usually a fan of the ogre cull centaur conversions, but your's look really good!
The skin colour on the hobgoblins makes them look particularly peculiar, but in a devilishly good way!

Hope to see more from here! Big Grin


RE: [HUGE update! 11-26-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Admiral - 04-01-2014 01:23 PM

RE: [HUGE update! 11-26-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Bloodbeard - 04-02-2014 03:15 AM

That is a cool update! Brutal allies indeed.

I wanted to create bullcentaurs with GW ogres first, but I found them to be too fat. But you've made it work. The brutal masks and the altered gut plates. Fit nicely together.

And those juggernaught pulled ogre stirred chariots must be some of the nastiest thing to take a charge from. SLAM!


RE: [HUGE update! 11-26-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - BoomBoom - 04-02-2014 09:51 AM

Thanks all for the words of encouragement.  I actually have a ton more pics of this finished 3K army, with alot more finished models and conversions, however moving the pics from snapfish to picasa is time consuming and I haven't gotten enough free time to move them all over.  If you would like to see more pics, including display board, please check out....

WOW, AMAZING!! Went thru the other blog, and your army, table and scenery looks fantastic!

The lava is perfect IMHO, and your gaming table must be one of the coolest yet!!!, and what a great tower!!!

You should really make time to fill out the blog here on the CD forum, your army and work deserves it!

It's nothing more to say really than brilliant !!!!!!


RE: [HUGE update! 11-26-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Zanko - 04-02-2014 12:41 PM

Your "Legion of Hashut" is awesome! Cheers!

The painting of the miniatures, the accessories (Tower, Altar, Vulcano, etc) and of table are just amazing!

The conversions are also well-made!

Kudos dude! Takes Hat off

RE: [HUGE update! 11-26-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Skink - 04-02-2014 05:00 PM

RE: [HUGE update! 11-26-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Bloodbeard - 04-03-2014 03:03 AM

Just looked through your blog. Making a theme table, the colours and runes and that large tower. ... shows an extreme amount of dedication!


RE: [HUGE update! 11-26-2013] The Legion of Hashut - Army Blog - Thommy H - 04-06-2014 06:53 AM

Just saw this army on a youtube video (linked elsewhere on the forum) and although I remembered seeing the first couple of conversions I somehow missed how much it'd grown!

Great army and great bases of course Wink Now I just have to figure out why everyone who uses my technique does a better job of it than me...

It is a nice one. I remember seeing it once I perused the thread
