Chat: 2004 to 2017 Return to Space Wolves

Posted on April 28th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Check out my Wolf Guard Terminator squad from July 2004! These models are the plastic terminator models from the 2nd edition Space Hulk game from the 1990s. They’re heavy converted with greenstuff furs and lots of bitz from the first Space Wolf bitz sprue. Hobbyists today don’t know how lucky they are with the wealth of bitz they get on modern kits.

Quick snap from my work bench today, a batch paint of three Space Wolves Wolf Guard Terminators.  Such a great kit with an incredible amount of detail on the models. All that detail does slow down the painting as you have to meticulously pick out …

I recently shared some Space Wolf Terminator posts and thought today I would share the WIP of the whole squad. These models have loads of detail on them and they’re quite slow to paint. I’m hoping to get these finished soon.

Showcase: Stormcast Eternals Primal Kings Warhost

Posted on March 10th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

This fledgling Stormcast Eternal warhost is my entry into the world of Age of Sigmar. I started painting this force around 6 months ago. It’s not much to show as I’ve been painting these models in-between other projects. This side project is slowly turning into a main project. After the jump I share more thoughts and close ups of each unit.

WIP Chaos Space Marine Aspiring Champion Vrosh Tattersoul

Posted on February 4th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

When Dark Vengeance was repackaged, they ditched the Dark Angel Chaplain exclusive model and repacked the set with an already existing Aspiring Champion model. They named the model Vrosh Tattersoul and gave him his own datasheet. He’s pretty tooled up….
