Epic 30K: odsłona 15 – ciężka broń XII Legionu | Epic 30K: part 15 – heavy weapons of XII Legion

Posted on January 27th, 2015 under , , , , , . Posted by

Kolejne dzieła Mormega, podstawki ciężkiej broni piechoty World Eaterów. Zadziwiające, jak wiele szczegółów mają te malutkie figureczki. Osiem podstawek tego rodzaju legionistów z drużyn ciężkiego wsparcia z pewnością znacznie zwiększy siłę ognia całej armii. Schemat kolorystyczny i malowanie identyczne jak przy pokazywanych tydzień temu żołnierzach drużyn taktycznych
Od siebie dodam tylko, że podstawki w formie pasków nieźle wyglądają, niemniej jednak starsze, kwadratowe, pozwalały chyba ciut łatwiej ustawiać oddziały na terenach.

Mormeg is steadily painting more and more infantry for his World Eaters in 6mm scale. It is truly suprising, how detailed those tiny 6mm miniatures are. Eight stands of heavy weapon squads will certainly add a lot of firepower his growing army. All of them were painted in exactly the same way as tactical squads shown one week ago.
One more thing – In my opinion stripes as a bases look very good. that is certain, but I think that older, square bases were a little bit easier to put down on the terrain features.



Ork Gunwagon with Kannon

This is my Ork Gunwagon with Kannon. This one of the earlier Forge World models and I got mine back in 2005 (I think, possibly 2006). You can see how I painted and made this model on the workbench feature for it.

Revival – A Guide to Playing 40K Faster (Updated for 7th)

Playing Warhammer 40K Faster

This is another old article that I wrote five years ago. I had completely forgotten about it until I started doing these revivals and somehow stumbled on it again. Most of what I had written back then remains true today, believe it or not, but I did have to adjust a few things for 40K […]

Tyranid Deathleaper Conversion

Posted on January 25th, 2015 under , , . Posted by

I had a spare Broodlord from the Deathstorm box set and decided to make a larger Lictor conversion to count as a Deathleaper. There’s still some sculpting work to be done on his head (to give him eyes) and I wanted to add some leg armour. Bits wise he’s made from the spawn of cryptus model but with hive tyrant […]

List Building: The Way Forward with Warhammer 40K 7th Edition

List Building

I absolutely love list building. Putting list theories to the test and the refinement process is just something I enjoy. That being said, nobody would ever say I build competitive lists. Most would probably say I don’t build strong lists. As much as I enjoy the process of list building, there’s always something I’m lacking, […]

Tau Riptide Showcase

Posted on January 23rd, 2015 under , , . Posted by

Yesterday I painted up a Tau Riptide battlesuit for my Tau army. There’s not much left to paint for this army now – and then I can start on the Tyranids! I used the same colours as the rest of my tau, followed by the usual gloss and oil wash. Once sprayed with Matt varnish I do all the glows […]

Dark Vengeance Commission Complete

Posted on January 22nd, 2015 under , , , , , , . Posted by

I finished painting the Dark vengeance set yesterday and based it this morning I don’t want to think how many cultists I’ve painted since this set has come out! For a starter set some of the models are very detailed – especially the chaos half of the kit. If I was a beginner I’d be pretty overwhelmed at the amount […]

Epic 30K: odsłona 14 – piechota World Eaters | Epic 30K: part 14 – World Eaters infantry

Posted on January 20th, 2015 under , , , , . Posted by

Mormeg pomalował ostatnio trochę rzeczy do naszego epikowego projektu Herezji Horusa, poproszony o “dosłownie trzy, cztery zdania opisu”, przysłał mi poniższy tekścik:

Pierwsze: Jest to powrót po dłuższej przerwie do epica.
Drugie: Zacząłem przesadzać z malowaniem – to jest 6 mm, a ja zacząłem bawić się w malowanie szczegółów i staranne nakładanie kolorów. Strasznie długo schodzi się z malowaniem każdej pojedynczej podstawki.
Trzecie: Wychodzą bardzo sterylni ale nie mam serca ich brudzić, boję się, że w tej skali zamazałbym ich kolor zbroi.
Czwarte: O ile długo maluję taktycznych, o tyle przy szturmowcach zwyczajnie się zatrzymałem. Musiałem poczekać na powrót weny (podobnie jak czekam teraz na kolej orków do Śródziemia). Prawdę mówiąc do malowania zdopingował mnie Inkub. Umówiliśmy się na epica – już czułem zapach krwi Imperialnych Pięści na moich toporach – rzuciłem się do malowania i okazało się, że IF nawet się nie pojawili. Cóż, przynajmniej cztery standy szturmowców dołączyły do mojej rosnącej armii WE. Schemat malowania jest taki sam, jak wcześniej, tyle że – jak pisałem – malowanie jest znacznie staranniejsze od wcześniejszych.
Mormeg has painted some more Epic Horus Heresy stuff and asked about writing some comments, “just three, four sentences”, wrote this:

First: This is a return to epic painting after a really long break.
Second: I think that I pushed my painting in this scale a little too far – this is 6mm afterall, and I started to paint all tiny details, colours are much more smoother and blended too. It takes a really long time to paint a single stand.
Third: Finished miniatures are very sterile and clean, but I don’t want to make them dirtier. I’m afraid to dirt them too much.
Fourth: Tactical marines took a really long time to paint, but assault marines were, painted even slower. It seems I lost my drive to paint them initially (as I lost my drive to paint more Middleearth orcs for a time being). To be honest, Inkub was a driving force behind finally finishing assault marines. We planned to play a little epic, I practically smelled smell of Imperial Fists’ blood on my axes. So, feeling blood in the air, I finished four stands and… Imperial Fists didn’t come. Well, at least I have four painted stands in my collection now. Painting scheme is exactly the same as earlier. I just painted them much more thoroughfully and took greater care with details painting.

Bloodletter

The other week Stealthy Stealth, regular 40K player and extremely infrequent author here, made a comment when I saw him last at the shop where I play. He saw the Orks I was using as proxies for Possessed, thinking they were actual Orks, and said, “Finally! Tony’s playing 6th edition.” Stealthy thought I was allying […]

I’m currently painting up a Dark Vengeance set as a tabletop commission. This is the second set I’ve painted (and I think I have a third to do soon!). I decided to paint the Dark Angel half first. I went with a strong OSL on the plasma weapons and biker lights to add a bit of interest to the basic […]

Mnich z Calibanu | A monk from Caliban

Posted on January 13th, 2015 under , , , , , . Posted by

Ostatni z niedawno malowanych mnichów I Legionu Adeptus Astartes z czasów Herezji Horusa – równie dobrze można go wykorzystać jako towarzysza walk Liona El’Jonsona, jak i późniejszego Upadłego. Mormeg maluje tych legionistów jako sojuszników swoich Władców Nocy, czasem może jednak przydadzą się jako lojaliści.
Last of the recently painted monks of I Legion of Adeptus Astartes from the mythic times of Horus Heresy. It can be fielded as a follower of Lion El’Jonson or a Fallen. Mormeg paints these legionaries as a allies for his Night Lords but they can be fielded as loyalists too.

This month is a 1,500 40K tournament at my FLGS. With the holidays having kept me busy, I have not had a lot of time to consider lists for the tournament. Yesterday I managed to get in a game, the first in about three weeks – which is a loooong time for me, and I […]
