    First of all, I was wrong- the Orc is Grimgore Ironhide, not Gorbad. This is actually how he comes- I like the sculpt so much that I didn't convert anything. I will be creating a very cool base to go along with him, but I'm not sure what it's going to be, yet. I do know I'm going to be creating some bloody strings to make it look like it's a fresh kill.

    Also, yes, I meant GD.

    Ah, well. Ogres need some victories from time to time. The new White Dwarf had an entire section on his army, but I didn't like the paint scheme at all, honestly. Didn't seem to fit my ideas of Khemri. Looked more Vampire Count or demonic to me.

    I actually have a chess set in Alabaster.
    It is a nice texture with interesting patterning and can be produced in various colours. That said I'm uncertain how one would go about making something appear Alabaster instead of marble.

    I'd probably go for some vaguely pinkish colour. Half-white, half-bleached bone, with a very thin red wash.

    Angels Encarmine deathcompany are supposed to be Alabaster. I used white drybrushed over bleached bone with a little bit of devlan mud in the resses for them.

    Crimson king? Makes sense. Crimson is the most "warhammy" word of the red synonyms. Thanks for the correction.

    I liked the Crimson Prince trampling the Ogre camp to death with a whole mountain though.

    These new tomb guard still aren't what I want from the tomb kings army. Robotic disciplined legions of souless killers. Instead they're shambling horrors that can be made to look incredibly creepy if you glue their arms and heads on at weird angles.

    It would depend ENTIRELY on what you want the alabaster to look like: "alabaster" isn't actually a mineral, but rather a term that can refer to ether hydrous calcium sulfide, gypsum, or calcium carbonate, calcite.

    Given that you've said you don't want it to look like marble, IE, calcium carbonate, I'd go with the gypsum version, so, at the base, I'd say just go over what you want to paint as alabaster in Skull White (to use GW paints), and then cover the alabaster bits in a gloss varnish to give it that characteristic translucence.

    To give an example on how to give it a different color, say, slightly brownish yellow, I would say use a 2:1 mix of Skull White to Bubonic Brown, and then cover it with a gloss varnish.

    So, for the past few days I've been working on a Terminator equipped with a heavy flamer and a chainfist, and while it's not completely done (I still need to do the highlighting on the last part of the flamer and the glow effects for the fire and chainfist... and looking at the picture, I might need to redo the eyes yet again), I feel comfortable showing it off.

    Not as well - it doesn't take paint, inks or washes. It might if I soaked it in cleaner or the like, but I haven't tried that (or spraypaint).
    It glues fine with superglue though.

    Nice painting Justyn, though I'd say the yellow of the chainblade's hazard markings is too dark and that the stripes should perhaps be less numerous and larger.

    While unpacking a new dvd-player, I came across this small piece of packaging and it seemed like the perfect piece of Warhammer 40k terrain. It has some nice corners and different layers so models can stand on different heights. I think it can offer some nice angles for line of sight and cover. The difficulty though is deciding what it could be and painting it appropriately.

    Spoiler

    I'm thinking of maybe turning it into some kind of fortress, bastion or bunker of some kind. Maybe adding a door or two, painting the piece in shades of grey and brown. Any ideas? The odd shape makes it difficult to determine what purpose such a structure could have though. An other option might be some kind of ancient temple, ziggurat type of thing, but I don't think that's much appropriate for a 40k game.

    Actually, to me, it immediately said "Necron". Make it black and metal, put some circuit-like green lines on it and you get a Dawn of War necron building.

    It's actually appropriate for a 40K game, though less... expected. There are many feudal worlds in the galaxy and they do get attacked all the time from times to times. It could also belong to people who like crosses. Or to chaos. If the design is odd or hurts eyes, it's chaos!

    I would agree, if it was not for the painfully obvious huge cross of doom on the thing. I admittedly know little about Necrons other than spamming pariahs in Dawn of War, but I don't recall a thing for crosses.

    I find the pressed cardboard ends make good buildings with a little creativity. As for what type of building. I can see your bunker idea. I don't think it needs to be Necron, but it probably can be converted to them faster then some other factions.

    If you want to add some of your extra guns and bits, and some creative painting you can make it look good for whatever faction you play.

    RPG: Pathfinder; D&D 3.X, 4; L5R; World of Darkness; Exalted, and many more.

    To me, it looks like a Shrine. With a big brazier in the centre for burnt offerings to be made to the Emperor, one of the saints or one of the heathen Chaos powers.

    Paint it a simple clay-brick brown.

    I think the turned out very well.

    Thing looks like a big space marine bunker to me. I would cut some horizontal slits, like on a real bunker, and maybe add some of those silly heavy bolters sticking out of windows like you see on the Apocalypse terrain.
