Death Jesters Down Through The Years

I bought the new Desth Jester this month, which gave me the chance to do another retrospective post of Death Jesters, I do love these guys.

Of the 2 of theses I still prefer the older one, the plastic chap is rather fiddly to put together. The support arm is just fitted on the back in the place where it fitted best under that fringe.

The weekly update from Forge World has gone live and there is plenty of dakka on display, 2 Carapace Mounted Missile Pods for the Warlord Titan

Guess the Marine is there as a size reference. Also a nice scaling shot of the Titans in the display case as Warhammer World.

Mother Telvig

Rather than fork out for bus fare today, I've decided to pick my DA Codex up tomorrow as I'm working in Preston and can claim my travel expenses back from my work. So instead of that I have failed a spicy food challenge and painted Mother Telvig up.

Base coat of Ushabati Bone on Telvig and 2 Face for the Harlequins.

The hair had a base wash of Lamenters Yellow, then a dry brush of Evil Sunz Scarlet before another wash with Blood For The Blood God.

I then gave her a wash of Nihilakh Oxide.

The tree trunk and weapon arm both got a wash with sepia.

The truck got a brown dry brush, the Prism Rifle a Screaming Skull dry brush and the body got a White Scar dry brush.

The aim was to get her looking kind of ghostly and intimidating, just now need a squad of Shadow Spectors so I can take her as a HQ.

Mother Telvig

So the Wood Elf Spellweaver with Staff arrived yesterday morning, now, and I got straight on with her. First thing first was to get the Prism Cannon onto the staff and with a little bit of green stuff and 1 bit cut off I think it looks okay

I'm giving myself a +1 for making sure it was straight as well at this point I thought what else can I do so I dug out the Eldar bits again and got a skull mask and an assortment of blades to use, most DE Wytches swords or spare swords from the Harlequins I got off Facebook along with a sickle from a Wrack and a bilhook that I have no idea where it came from.

I played around with the mask a lot today, filing it out so it would fit better. My first thought was to have her at port arms and have the mask following the faces point of view.

As you can see I changed my mind and went for a more dynamic look, by shifting the mask around it now looks like she is sighting along the cannon

I added the Star Cannon containment flasks to act as a counter balance as that whole arm is actually magnetised for transport and storage.

Monthly Vow Update

I'n thinking of changing my dates for the monthly vow from the 1st of the month to the 12th as it fits my monthly pay day better. These are the Voidweavers that I've been waiting for since the 12th along with the Death Jester, as I was primeing these I also slipped in the BA dreadnought in as well. The plan now is to get these painted for the 12th of July, along with a Troupe of Harlequins for Azreal.

Oh Yes!

I finally got my hands on one of these! I was planning on cutting the stormbolter off and using it as a new counts as Beliel but having it in my hands now I'm not going to do that so I'm thinking of adding it to my Deathwing Command Squad and giving the model displaced to the Knights Of Blood.

Force Of Telvig

I posted the photos from yesterday at GW and was asked for more photos of the Wraithlords, so I got out the rest of the stuff for Telvig's army.

I took them out into the yard for some natural light.

5 Glade Guard as Rangers.

Farseer in front.

Not sure what I'm going to do with the Pirate girls and 5 more Glade Guard Rangers.

The Venom Vypers

Jussi Nietos Warden Of The North.

2 of The Knights Watch, any and all War Walkers will be White Walkers or Ghost Walkers when I get round to them.

The Tree Man Avatar Of Khaine.

4 out of 5 big guys.

And finally got a start made on this which I'm thinking of running this as a Falcon for now as I've butchered a Bright Lance to make a Pulser.

Which looked a touch ropey when I left for work. And the Lightening Claw I'm working on for my old school Terminator that I'm planning on running as a Beliel.

Saturday 20th.

Hung over and up early... So Telvig is in the cabinet in Preston, give him a vote if you get the chance. While in I took the chance to photograph 3 of the Wraithlords on one of the store tables, while I waited for my turn on the store pc to pre order the Dark Angle Codex and cards.

Telvig, one of the Knights Watch and Jussi Nietos.
Now I need to check what I am working next week so I can pick up the Codex and Telvig.

Unsheath The Lion's Blade You Say?

So if you look at some of the older posts you'll know I also play a Dark Angel Successor Chaptor called The Lion's Blades, when I saw the leaked image I couldn't help but grin.

Grandfather Telvig

I was after some inspiration for the bark effect on the back, and as the world tree is pictured as an oak tree I nipped to my local park after I back from work on Monday and got a picture of the oak tree there.

The next one will be based on a Silver Birch and this is going to the Wraith seer.
