Tigris Viridi - Warhound Scout Titan

A second, old Armorcast Warhound Titan arrived in the mail for me a week and a half ago. It's really all I've been working on since. By this past weekend I thought I'd settled on colours and had most of the green and purple painted...Then I decided the green was too dark after all...Not nearly enough contrast -and looked positively dull next to Pardus Purpura...And so I started again with MORE test bits and settled on a lighter colourAnd started all over again... mostly...I have to say I'm much happier with the lighter colour now.So this is Tigris Viridi. Commanded by Princeps Mozzer. The crew is rounded out by two Moderati; Moderati Joyce (Steersman) and Moderati Marr (Sensors, Communications, Weapons) and two Tech Priests Ro-Urk350 and Pom-Fret681.Tigris Viridi joins it's partner, Pardus Purpura in the Eritque Arcus Maniple of Legio Amare Feles.Pardus Purpura is commanded by Princeps Smythe.

Clearing the decks part 4

This is the last batch of Primaris before the ChallengeFirst we have one of the anniversary Lieutenants with a Scorpion shoulder pad.I'm quite pleased with the OSL on these two Hellblasters. Hopefully I can remember how I achieved it when I get around to the rest of them :/This objective marker/Teleport homer is from the Deathwatch board game. It has been sat on the table for ages and just needed the lights painting, so it made sense to finish it off at the same time.And here they are, all together with a sneak peek at another Lieutenant that isn't quite finished yet. When I took a picture of him, the helmet didn't look great, so he's going back for a bit more work.No painting tonight as it is our work Christmas do, featuring a private gig from the mighty Prof. This is one of his videos that some friends made and our entire team at the time are in it. I'm in it twice as two different characters :D

Showcase: Sautekh Dynasty Necron Warrior by FruitBear

Hi everyone! Back here once again with a single miniature. This time it's a test model for a Necron Warrior based on the Sautekh Dynasty scheme. Recently I've been trying 'Eavy Metal painter Paul Norton's method for painting metal and the results are awesome so I thought I would try it on a Necron warrior. More after the jump

WIP: Death Guard Foul Blightspawn

Here's my work so far on the Foul Blightspawn. A Grenadier with a penchant for concocting foul diseases and spraying them over his foes. He came with Issue 12. Wow,  that's three months I've been working on the miniatures from the Conquest publication. If you're wondering why he's hovering in the air, I'll explain after the jump. More after the jump

Clearing the decks part 1

With this year's AHPC coming up, it is time to start finishing off all those little projects that have been filling the painting table for months, half done. Some of them feed into the challenge, some don't... but all of them need to be finished in order to safely start something new on the 20th. If I don't, they will never get finished!This first batch are the start of a Red Scorpions Primaris force. I used to have a Forge World Red Scorpions force years ago, but sold it when my gaming buddy moved away as there wasn't really any use for it. Over the last year I seem to have picked up a number of Space Marines again, thanks to the starter box and the magazine that is currently ongoing. I figured it was about time to put paint to figures and see where it goes... even if it is straight into the sale pile once they are all painted.The main issue with Red Scorpions is that FW stopped doing their transfer sheet, so the choice was either a third party transfer sheet, or hand paint logos on every single figure...

Speedmob #1

I have finally finished the first Speedmob for the new Speed Freaks game.  I previously showed you the picture of the Shokkjump Dragsta.  I have now finished a three bike mob of biker to finish this up.  These are the first Ork bikers I have built and painted and they are almost as much of a pain in the ass as the Deffkoptas.  I am really looking forward to trying out this game and also to adding these models to my 40K Ork army.Speedmob #1Biker mobBiker Nob the leader of the mobBiker 1Biker 2

Imperial Knights - House Corvus Twins in manufactorum pt6.

Just checking in. Over the past few weeks I've had opportunity and the mental capacity to get back on the hobby, but the blogging will still be as and when. I'll do an update on my son at the end but the headlines are - he's doing well, back at school for a few lessons a day and he will start further treatment in January.On to the Knights, this is something I'd been thinking about doing ever since I got my first Knight - making one shoulder similar to Heresy Era Mk5 Space Marine armour. However, instead of studs I would use the extra Mechanicum skulls in the kit.I'm not entirely sure it works, simple studs might have been better [and easier to arrange] but it's done now and all I have to do is figure out how to paint it. I had a thought to do the entire shoulder pad black/yellow stripes but the black/white studs might look odd, plain red is the obvious solution.And finally back to the legs. When Oscar's surgery/recovery was ongoing the prospect of painting was unthinkable but getting this pose locked down was

Showcase: Dark Angels Primaris Aggressors

My Aggressors took ten days to complete. That's a third of the month (maths!) Luckily, this month's four issues of Conquest only has models on the covers of three magazines. So I'm still on target to complete these models before issues 17, 18, 19 and 20 arrive.  After the jump I share an interesting comparison picture.More after the jump
