Helbrute: Paint in Progress #3

Posted on December 16th, 2014 under , , , , , . Posted by

Slowly I keep chipping away at this model. Not a lot of major progress since the last update but I have gotten paint on the metal trim. That took a lot longer than I thought it would, and I still have some spots to smooth out (you’ll see some ble…

Iyanden Eldar Commission

Posted on December 15th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

A small Eldar Commission I painted over the weekend. The client wanted an inverted Iyanden look, with the main colour being blue with the yellow as a secondary colour. I used a few new techniques for these that I’ve been wanting to try out for a …

Forge World Newsletter #434

Posted on December 14th, 2014 under , , , , , . Posted by

They’re nice enough if you’re building a themed force…and I do like Dreadnoughts…The Contemptor Dreadnoughts of the Legiones Astartes enabled the mortally injured warriors interred within them to continue to serve their Legions during the Great Cru…

Awesome 40K Campaign Rules

Posted on December 14th, 2014 under , . Posted by

I wish I could claim these as my own, but I can’t.  I haven’t been getting to much hobby stuff lately, but I came across this blog entry from Sons of Taurus and thought it was too good not to share.  I don’t know how many folks coll…

Battle Report: Chaos Space Marines vs Blood Angels

Posted on December 11th, 2014 under , , , , , . Posted by

Last night my opponent Steve wanted to run his Blood Angels one last time under the current codex. We played a 1,750 game with the Maelstrom of War mission Cloak and Shadows. I brought along my Warpsmith list I’ve been goofing off with, which was…

Zielony Rycerz z I Legionu | Green Knight of the I Legion

Posted on December 9th, 2014 under , , , , , . Posted by

Model widoczny obok, to kit bash – korpus i plecak z zestawu Company Veteran Squad, hełm pochodzi z zestawu FW Astartes w zbrojach Mark III – te hełmy wydają mi się odpowiadać najbardziej fluffowi I Legionu – łapki, miecz i pistolet pochodzą z z…

Helbrute: Painting in Progress #2

Posted on December 9th, 2014 under , , , , , . Posted by

I’ve been working on my Helbrute the past few days and made some reasonable progress. Since the last update I’ve picked out the details on the skin (hoses, cables, etc), and laid down some base colors on the armor insets. Here’s some …

Sanguinary Guard Commission Complete

Posted on December 9th, 2014 under , , , , , . Posted by

Yesterday I finished working on the Blood Angels Sanguinary Guard unit and The Sanguinor as part of a small commission. I think that these models will benefit from the new larger 32mm bases that the Blood Angels appear to be packaged with now as they&#…

Helbrute: The Painting Begins

Posted on December 6th, 2014 under , , , , , . Posted by

As I continue to work with TMM and experiment with it, I’ve started to paint my Helbrute. I’ve really wanted to put a brush to this model for a long time and I figured I’d work on the skin while I work on the metallic techniques on te…

Forge World Newsletter #433 – Konrad Curze

Posted on December 5th, 2014 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Getting a somewhat mixed response which I suppose is understandable with a model of a character so iconic……for what it’s worth…I like it…..Attacking from darkness with inhuman ferocity, Konrad Curze, the Night Haunter, inspires terror in the he…

Sanguinary Guard Commission 2

Posted on December 5th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

Continuing from yesterday’s post, I plodded along with the Sanguinary Guard today getting most of the details done. The clients specifications were just like the box so I went with the lightning effect on the swords which contrasts nicely with th…

Sanguinary Guard Commission

Posted on December 4th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

In my last post I mentioned about getting the Dwarfs complete before moving… well that didn’t happen! The client was happy for me to leave them until after I had moved (and so he could add some more stuff to them too!). The move is now comp…

Battle Report: Chaos Space Marines vs Iron Hands

Posted on December 4th, 2014 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Last night I got in a rematch against Carl and his Iron Hands with Space Wolves allies. I played Carl a few weeks ago when I started testing out a Warpsmith list. I had revised my Warpsmith list since then but completely forgot and brought the exact sa…

Genestealer Cult – Hybrid Aberration Finished

Posted on December 3rd, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

After spending a long damn time on my painting table, the heavy weapon hybrid is done. I painted him in brief snatches of hobby time over the last month, ten minutes here, half and hour there, as that’s all I had available to me until recently. Anyway,…

Zniszczony pancerz Władcy Nocy | Damaged Night Lord’s armour

Posted on December 2nd, 2014 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Malowanie NL w zamyśle miało być takie prostym powtórzeniem sprawdzonego wzoru. Problemy zaczęły się kiedy okazało się, że nie zapisałem kolejności i nazw farbek, które używałem -ostatnio pewnie kilka miesięcy temu. Potem okazało się,…

Prep Work: Helbrute

Posted on December 2nd, 2014 under , , , , , . Posted by

Not a very exciting picture but I’ve finished up the prep work on the Helbrute so I can begin painting him. I had a fair amount of gap filling to do on this guy, some of which you can see. I’m really looking forward to painting this Helbrut…

Chaos Defiler: PIP #4

Posted on November 29th, 2014 under , , , , , . Posted by

Finally nearing the end on this Defiler. At the moment I’m working on the head, getting those highlights on there and picking out the details. The lower half is done, well, almost. I plan to add some blood to a claw or two but that will be after …

Piąty kultysta Czerwonego Świtu | Fifth Red Dawn cultist

Posted on November 26th, 2014 under , , , , , . Posted by

Na mojej półeczce z rzeczami do malowania od pewnego czasu stale goszczą figurki kultystów z “Mrocznej Zemsty”. Jednego dnia pomaluję skórę, drugiego jakiś inny element miniaturki i tak – stopniowo – czasami udaje mi się nawet coś skończyć….

RE: The Great Migration – How Many Are Leaving The Hobby?

Posted on November 26th, 2014 under , . Posted by

Dan Bearss put up an article on BoLS yesterday called The Great Migration – How Many Are Leaving The Hobby? It’s a short article where he talks about what people have said to him regarding them leaving 40K for other game systems. Now, I&#82…

40k WIP…

Posted on November 25th, 2014 under , , . Posted by

 I don’t usually like to show Work in Progress pictures of my miniatures, as sometimes the whole WIP part can get lost online, but it feels like with how long my army is taking to come together, plus the upcoming holidays around the corner that ma…

Twist Tie Tree Model Tests

Posted on November 25th, 2014 under , , . Posted by

Hello all, After painting my hills I felt like it was time to update my collection of trees.  The ones I’m using are primarily aquarium decorations with flock on them and while they work okay they look a little odd.  They might look better mixe…

Chaos Iron Warriors

Posted on November 21st, 2014 under , , , , , , . Posted by

This is a rather nice looking Iron Warriors Chaos Basilisk that was on display in Warhammer World in Nottingham back in 2007. This is a rather nice looking Iron Warriors Chaos Vindicator (if somewhat badly photographed) that was in the display. Alongsi…

Ork Gorkanaut – A Review

Posted on November 20th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

This review is later than planned because my daughter selfishly got sick and meant all my evenings were spent caring for her instead of building the Gorkanaut. I’ve still not finished it but I’m far enough along that I can confidently review it. It’s awesome. Review over. As if! My opinions can never be confined to […]

List Review: Chaos Space Marines 1,750

Posted on November 20th, 2014 under , , , , , . Posted by

Last night I played a 1,750 game with my Chaos Space Marines against Iron Hands. Normally I would do a battle report but the game was rather chaotic and it’s hard to put it into something coherent here. Instead I wanted to focus on the list I was…

Chaos Defiler: PIP #3

Posted on November 19th, 2014 under , , , , , . Posted by

Update #3 for the Defiler. Since the previous update I washed everything and then did some cleanup as a result of the wash. Other than that I’ve been working on some freehand stuff; none of which is done yet. I have to wrap up the freehand work a…
