WIP: Blood Bowl Skaven Lineman, Blitzer and Gutter Runner #2

I made some decent progress with my latest batch of Blood Bowl Skaven. Clothes, armour, fur, and skin are done, now onto the details. I can’t wait to add Forge World’s Skaven booster to my growing team, I guess I’ll aim for a full 16 model team, includ…

Showcase: Ultramarines Captain Sicarius (limited edition)

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

Here we have the original model for Cato Sicarius, Captain of the Ultramarines 2nd company. It was a limited edition release for the second iteration of Cities of Death, before Sicarius’ backstory was fleshed out for the 5th Edition Space Marines codex. Seems like the noble Cato used to be quite a bruiser in his early days, sporting lightning claws and an edgy mohawk. This is a rework of an older paint job of mine, so check out what has changed after the jump.

With a couple more Ultramarines reworks ticked off the list, I thought it would be fun to paint some more Skaven models for a change. I’ve started with painting the orange armour and basecoated fur and metal. I follow my own tutorial – check it ou…

Showcase: Ultramarines Chaplain with Jump Pack

Posted on June 1st, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Back in 2015 I reworked this metal Ultramarines Chaplain with jump pack. I didn’t change his base back then, but as I’m slowly going through my collection to bring it up to scratch, it was finally time to upgrade the model to a 32mm base. The model benefits a lot from the larger base, as it is very top-heavy and easy to topple. Check out more pictures after the jump.

Showcase: Ultramarines Chief Librarian Varro Tigurius

Posted on May 29th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Hi all, this is a quick showcase post for my Chief Librarian Tigurius, who was featured in White Dwarf a couple of months ago. In my quest to bring my Ultramarines collection up to scratch, I just upgraded him to a 32mm base with base adapters from ttadapters.com. I’m still quite happy with the paint job, so I didn’t need to change anything else. This model has a special place in my heart, as I rarely do elaborate freehands, as it is so time-consuming and I’m a slow painter already. Enjoy more angles after the jump.

Showcase: Eldar Avatar of Craftworld Iybraesil (Forge World)

Posted on May 26th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

A year and a half ago, I painted this Forge World Avatar for my Craftworld Iybraesil collection, but I never completed it, as I wasn’t sure what to do with his tabbard. He had a comfy place in my display cabinet, waiting to be finished some day, then the unfortunate happened: While I wanted to remove some other model, my sleeve caught the Avatar and I dropped it to the floor, smashing his sword arm. Now I finally found the time to repair the damage and put the last finishing touches to the tabbard. Check out the pictures after the jump.

Showcase: Astra Militarum Guardsman (Custom Regiment)

Hey guys, I’ve just finished painting an Imperial Guardsman of my own custom regiment. I wanted a more gothic look than stock Cadians, so I went for custom bits: Medieval Helmets and Short Coat Legs from Anvil Industry’s Trench Fighter ranger that…

Following up our review of Anvil Industry’s brilliant Trench Fighter and Regiments Infantry range, today we have a look at their Exo Lords Armoury: fondly designed Space Marine compatible resin bits and weapons. We have combi-weapons, heavy weapons, chain axes, muzzle flashes, and more – after the jump.

Showcase: Ultramarines Tactical Squad II

Over seven weeks in the making, here is my completed Ultramarines Tactical Squad, second squad of the Second Company. Apparently, these days there is a tendency for my projects to take longer and longer… but then I also push myself harder and harder….

Tutorial: How to paint a Manufactorum from Cities of Death

Posted on May 14th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

In this tutorial I’ll explain how I painted the Manufactorum above from Games Workshop’s Cities of Death scenery range. It’s the same paint scheme I used for painting the Promethium Relay Pipes I posted a while ago. It’s a quick technique that yields great results and works perfectly for Shadow War: Armageddon terrain. Find out more after the jump.

WIP: Ultramarines Tactical Squad #6

Posted on May 7th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

The third batch of Tactical Marines is 95% done. You can see them in the front. Just need to add some static grass and refine the transfers. I’m pretty happy with them, what do you think? Now, onto the fourth and final batch – two older paint jobs that…

Tutorial: How to paint Ultramarines (the Stahly way)

Posted on April 30th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Over the years, I’ve been often asked about how I painted my Ultramarines collection. Ages ago, I created a tutorial, but time has moved on, and since then we’ve launched our popular step-by-step tutorials. So it was about time to create a tutorial in our new format. Check out the extensive, 28 steps guide for painting the chap above, after the jump.

WIP: Ultramarines Tactical Squad #5

Posted on April 27th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

The first combat squad is done, now onto the second. I’ve started with a batch of three models, including a Plasma gunner and the Sergeant. The remaining two models will be reworks of existing paint jobs (not shown on the picture above).

So far I made good progress on the armour. I realized that MkIII armour takes much longer to paint than other marks – so many segments and rivets to pick out. Thankfully it’s only one model 😉 What do you think?

With the first batch of completely new models done, next up are reworkings of two of the older paint jobs. The left model has been retouched. I’ve redone almost all highlights, and added the proper insignia. The one on the left still needs some work. C…

WIP: Ultramarines Tactical Squad #3

Almost a wrap on the first batch of tactical Ultramarines. I still need to refine the squad markings and add some static grass, otherwise, they’re done. Felt good to paint the good old blue again. What do you think?
