Scrappers Gang

Posted on October 20th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Over the last couple of weeks, we have finally had a few games with the newish Scrappers rules. To try out the rules, I dug up my old Genestealer Cult models (a Necromunda gang) and gave them a quick touch up and inking. Even after such a quick bit of maintenance, they look much better … Continue reading Scrappers Gang

Hey folks.It has been a little quiet here for the last few weeks from me (although Ynneadwraith continues to put out some awesome content). General life business and a family holiday have meant I have not had the time to sit down to complete anything, …

Dreadtober 2017 – Genestealer Cult Sentinels – Pilot’s lounge

Posted on October 20th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

I think these are almost done now, which is why I’m picking out some of the finer details in the cabin. A quick Incubi Darkness drybrush, followed by Dark Reaper is all I wanted to do.Then the dials and lights, just simple RAG rated [in reverse 😉 ]. Hindsight I could have added some yellow on the inner walls so that just the console equipment was black but I’ll live with it as is.

The other console on the left, just glowy dials. It’s fiddly to get in so this was the best I was after.

I then decided to add some Gunmetal scratches and scuffs, particularly on the feet and ball joint.

Really glad I did now as I think it adds a lot. Ordinarily I might have applied some extra shading behind it but this looks more natural than I usually do. You can also see I’ve started to edge the base with Valejo Heavy Red, so you know they’re almost complete now.

I think the Flamer is a bit too grunged and the fuel tanks are slightly incongruous but some scuffs and Typhus Corrosion have blended it back into the whole a bit.

The exhaust stacks had a little Abaddon black drybrushed on the ends, for soot.

The pilots look identical, they’re both ‘Turqs’ [vat-bred genetic-xenos hybrids]. I had some fun with my lime green paint making the glow effect on the visor and controls.

The pilots have both been varnished with Army Painter Anti-Shine, ready to be glued in place once the Sentinels have also been varnished. While I’m at it I’ll get the Deathwatch done too, which begs the question – what next? I probably have enough time to do the new AoP base, but having dismissed the possibility I now feel less inclined to make the effort…

WIP: Ultramarines Captain Cato Sicarius #2

Posted on October 20th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Making some good progress on Sicarius. For now, I’m focussing on completing his body, then I’ll be moving on to the banner. How do you like the model so far? My rendition is a bit different from the ‘Eavy Metal paint job by Joe Tomaszewski…

The Dark Imperium Premier League

Posted on October 18th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Greetings all! I thought that today I’d talk to you about something I’m running over at my club at the moment – the Dark Imperium Premier League. This is a league where club members could challenge other participants to a game and for those games to mean something rather more than just who got bragging rights for the next week.

First Farseer of the Angvai

Posted on October 18th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

Alileath felt for the presence of the seer, reaching out with her psychic senses. From high above the seer appeared as a placid lake, barely a ripple disturbing its cool surfaces. Familiar. The Path of the Seer required utmost concentration. Damnation awaited those who wavered. However, this time curiosity got the better of her. She leant in closer, desiring to look beneath the surface. Instantly she wished he hadn’t. Roiling, seething rage howled beneath the placid surface. Loss, anger, desperation. Wailing around and around and around doing nought but gather momentum. Sweet mother Isha. What kind of mind could hammer that into submission. Alileath couldn’t decide whether to be reassured or terrified that such a mind was leading the Angvai.

‘Bellatheral’ they call him. ‘Warmaker’. Never had a name been more fitting.


Bellatheral stalked the ruined battlefield. Around him his warriors fought and fell. The might of the mon keigh filth was strong here, but he couldn’t stop now. After all they’d been through, after all they’d lost. To give up now would be unthinkable. They must prevail.


An axe-wielding brute charged towards him, shrieking its litanies and chants. As their gaze met Bellatheral momentarily shunted all of his grief, all of his loss, all of his anger directly into the poor primitive’s brain. His moment of catharsis was rather marred by bits of the unfortunate creature striking his armour. 

Perhaps some day he’ll have transferred the very last drop and the momentary tranquillity would last forever, but as yet that font had proven limitless.


Flitting about between projects now, but this guy’s hot off the presses :)
I’ve had this guy on the workbench for a while now pending a Harlequin’s Caress for his right arm, but eventually I got fed up of waiting for them to come into stock on bits sites and blew £15 on a whole Harlie kit just for one bit :S never shall I be accused of being financially responsible 😉
Hopefully he conveys what I wanted him to. The backstory for my craftworld is that they’ve gone through an Iyanden-scale extinction event in the recent past, but rather than mourning their grief has fostered anger and resentment within them.
So…basically eldar Angry Marines 😉
Hope you like him!

Dreadtober 2017 – Genestealer Cult Sentinels – Moar grunge

Posted on October 18th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

So the decision was made and I sadistically chose the finest number out of them all. I spent a significant amount of time cutting it out as a stencil and then the Martian Ironearth texture rendered it almost useless. What I could see of the black that …

‘nids part 228 – Genestealer Cult Sentinels – Shading and the return of the abomination that is Seraphim Sepia

Posted on October 16th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

Last Fridays post and we left the Sentinels ready for some definition. I was feeling a little disheartened I’d covered some of the Red Oxide underpianting but hoped a fine sepia shade might fool the eye into thinking the yellow was warmer than it had b…
