Flying servitors are complete


And the final quick little post while I'm actually on the other side of the globe from my paints and minis (yes, I've been in Australia for the last week and a half) is of the flying servitors. These little guys were quite popular when I originally posted them, hopefully the paint has increased their appeal even further.


And as a reminder, here are the original WIP shots.

I'll be back in the US soon and will hopefully have some more new minis to show you all a few days later.

Cheers
Dave

  3. Gee Dave, another bunch of awesome models by you. But I fear the areas on the cloaks where the plastic shades off into the green stuff might be too obvious once the minis are painted.

    1. While I think the photos might be exaggerating the meeting point of the plastic and gs, I will certainly admit the join is not professionally smooth ; )

  6. These are gorgeous. Probably the coolest completed models out of your recent AdMech conversions. Sometimes its little models like these that push a project over the top for me.

    1. Hi JTG

      I've been in Newcastle and Sydney, catching up with family and friends and doing all sorts of kid-friendly sightseeing, so there might not have been much time for extra-curricular beer drinking ; ) Thanks for the offer though.

      Cheers

  9. Are those Skaven bodies or Night Goblins?
    What did you use for the wings? Is that from the RW upgrade sprue?
    Where are the arms from? They look suitably spindly and odd.

    I recently found your blog and your work is a massive inspiration.

    1. Hi DM

      They are Night Goblin bodies, and the wings are cut from a SM icon thingy. The arms are the tiny ones from the Dark Eldar Talos kit, very lovely little arms indeed.

      Cheers

  10. Looks good Dave.

    And ffs mate, if I'd known you were going to be down here, I'd have taken it as a good excuse to leave Taswegia for a few days to come buy you a meal.

    1. It has been a busy, family-filled trip, so don't feel too bad ; ) mind you, I'd have thought that living in Taswegia might have been a better reason for leaving for a few days! ; )
