Thor’s Workbench: Oblits WIP

Oblits WIPNot a lot to show in the picture but here’s what’s on my workbench. Yesterday I worked on assembling, more like finishing, two Rhinos and 5 Chosen. I got them so they are about 90% complete, good enough to field at least, and then felt like painting and set them aside.

So, above is a very early WIP shot of my Oblits. I had done some green stuff work on them, converting them from Blackreach Termies. It’s not my best green stuff work but I did learn a lot in working on them that I’ll apply on the next ones I do.

As far as paint goes, I want to do them Dark Mechanicus, so lots of red and some black. Doing different color schemes for Chaos like that is one of the things I enjoy about working on this army. It’s hard to get bored.

I’ll be working on these guys today, after I post this, and hopefully later this coming week have more progress to show.

    Those are coming along nicely, once you add your painting skill they will be awesome I’m sure!

    • They are definitely in raw form right now. Just trying to lay down base coats.

  • Looking good, Thor.  I’m surprised you didn’t take the heraldry pads off the left arms and they’re decidedly imperial.  Are the Oblits. in your army also fallen Fate’s Angels rather than the typical unaffiliated cultists?

    Either way, I agree these will look sweet once you’ve painted them.

    • I was going to cut if off but with the way those ones are molded it would have taken some work to clean it up after and at the time I did those I was decidedly lazy.

      I figured they’re renegades but not former Fate’s Angels. All my fallen loyalists wear that half-scheme and these guys I wanted in the color of the Dark Mechanicus.

    They are about a million times better than the GW models that is for sure. I like the sinew look you have molding the guns into the arms. 

    • Thanks.

      I’m not a fan of the current GW models for them either. These ones came out alright, not my best work but I’m happy. When I do the next batch, like to have 3 more, I want to make them more like the artwork in the codex. If the GW ones looked like that I’d buy them in a heartbeat.
