I’ve been quite busy lately but I have been chipping away at my HellGate project.
There’s a few things I’m really enjoying about this project.
- There are no rules. That’s a BIG one for me.
- There is no limit in regards to size and vision of this project.
- The aesthetic is unique, well for me at least. Very dark and burning hot landscape.
- There are quite a few ideas for this project. From trains and cemetery’s to Kingdoms and Warbands.
It’s really quite limitless.
Today I wanted to show you a few models I’ve built from, mostly, Warcry (GW) bits for a Warband called “The Eternal Scourge.”
First we have the leader…
He was fairly easy to build and, to my eye, he looks like he has leadership qualities. Nothing quite says “leader” like pointing a gun in the air and snarling. Plus a nice cloak helps too.
He was fun because he’s a combination of several different base models from GW’s range. I’m also loving his gun as, it too, is a combination of different weapon bits.
Despite the simplicity of his look he was actually a little fiddly to put together. The Warcry kits are great but they are not designed for kitbashers and converters. Ideally I like my kits to be made up of completely separate bits. i.e separate legs, torsos, heads, weapons etc. However I like a challenge so getting his stance just right was quite an achievement albeit a miniature one hehe.
Last we have…
Fairly straight forward kitbash. I love his helmet/mask.
I made this little video and the music/sounds too for my HellGate project.
