Wild Wild West – General Store Scratchbuild

Seemingly straight out of the movies comes Yepimadork’s sweet General Store.

Completely scratchbuilt right down to the sign, he estimates it took about 80 hours to complete.
Wow.

Hammer of The Forge Space Marines – Army Showcase

Welcome to Armies on Parade; Army Showcase where I display (in hopefully good detail) the best of the all great looking armies I’ve featured from major tournaments all across the United States.

If you click on the Army Showcase label you’ll be able to scroll through some great looking armies, all at once.
It’s like you were at a major event yourself, all from the comfort of your home or smart phone!  -Enjoy MBG

Yepimadork came up with this themed escalation army back in the dawn of 5th Edition.  He named his custom chapter the Hammer of the Forge, and they rock.

Besides converting the dreads to be the un-released at the time Ironclads, he also painted up the army in a non-conventional scheme and based it as if on Martian soil.

Back then you could still find some of the old colored primer cans from GW, so he used a spray can of Camo Green, and highlighted it with a mix of Camo and Ivory (from Vallejo Model color).

Then he used Gore Red on the guns, and accented the figures with beige on the shoulders and brass for the trim.

Overall it turned out great, and looks very unique! A great start to amazing looking army.  Unit pictures below.

Towers for Khorne? Awesome Conversion

Checkout this amazing Tower of Khorne conversion by Yepimadork.

I’ve been getting all sorts of excited as of late with rumors of Chaos becoming more and more frequent.

So I thought I’d share my Tower of Khorne that Yepimadork made, with you all today, as we grind closer to hopefully a new book for the worshipers of the Dark Gods.

This model is one of the few good looking Towers of Khorne out there, and I’m proud to finally own one (Brass Scorpion’s and the resin kit that’s sold on eBay are also my favorites).

Bits List

Unfortunately I don’t have any work in progress pics of this behemoth, because of its “age”, but I will tdo my best to break down the conversion from what Yepimadork told me and what I can make out from looking it over myself.

  • Gothic Columns from Cities of Death
  • Skull Motif Panels from Cites of Death 
  • Blank Panels from Cities of Death
  • Daemon Heads from Arcane Ruins (w/ flat backs)
  • Skull Heads from Arcane Ruins (w/ flat backs)
  • 2x Thunderfire Cannons
  • Chaos Rhino Dozer Blades MKI and MKII
  • Defiler / Soulgrinder Leg Plates
  • Bic Pen Shafts (for cannons) I think the conventional conversion uses Dwarf Organ Guns.
  • Old Armor Cast Skull Road Sections
  • Assembled Baneblade Hull

The Conversion(s)

The vehicle itself is easy to see, as far as construction goes, the details are in the placing of everything so it looks like it’s supposed to.

The tower was built up from the Baneblade chassis, by making hexagonal wall sections from the Cities of Death panels themselves.

Gothic braces were added to provide stability to the tower, but I’m sure some internal bracing was required in the exposed Baneblade compartment to support the extra weight of the tower and to provide a solid base to build off of first.

Weapons were added next, with the top guns being added before a roof was attached on the tower. For the side guns, Thunderfire Cannons were used and accented with Defiler/ Soulgrinder armor plates. The main gun itself is, of course, a Hell Cannon which has to be placed before the second story walls are attached.

For painting purposes I was told it’s good to leave the tower in sections so that everything can be easily accessed.

Skulls from the old Armorcast road set were broken up and then arranged around the walls, and on the top of the tower, with a few “loose” Games Workshop skulls glued about for a more natural look (if there is such a thing as a natural look to hundreds of skulls being piled up on top of each other).

Dozer blades, skull plates, daemon heads, etc. were all placed about as shown to accent the Chaotic nature of the model. The top of the tower was adorned with all sorts of spikes and grizzly trophies from many different kits,  all in tribute to the Blood God.

When assembly was complete, the whole model was drybrushed codex grey over a black undercoat, and from there all the metal and skulls were picked out.

Brasses and Golds were used for the weapons, while the Skull white was used sparingly on all the skulls (how appropriate given the subject matter).

Check out the pictures below for all the close-ups you would need to duplicate this behemoth yourself. The only thing I am unsure of is how the top guns were assembled….

Hammer of the Forge Razorback

Welcome to Army of One, where I display a great looking painted model from stuff I’ve done or amazing figures I’ve seen around.

If you click on the Army of One label you’ll be able to scroll through some great looking figures, all at once.

Today we take a look at an alternative color scheme Razorback by Yepimadork.

To paint them he used a spray can of Camo Green, and highlighted it with a mix of Camo and Ivory (from Vallejo Model color).  Then he used Gore Red on the guns, and accented the figures with Beige on the shoulders and brass for the trim.

I love the custom look, how about you? -MBG
