Showcase: Death Guard Rhino

Creaking onto the blog today is this crusty old Rhino, sorry I mean trusty old Rhino. This kit has been on Games Workshop's shelves for what must be coming up to two decades. In fact, the Chaos accessory sprue that comes with the tank is even older! That's because the accessories were designed for the original MK1 Rhino kit. Rumble on over the jump and we'll chat some more about this OAP (Old Armoured Pensioner)More after the jump

Showcase: Dark Angels Redemptor Dreadnought

I'm in a weird place at the moment with my Conquest project. I'm actually keeping up with the releases really well, but I'm getting behind with the blogging side of things. To get things back on track I'm sharing the Redemptor Dreadnought today, which I finished a couple of weeks ago. More pics after the jump.More after the jump

WIP: Dark Angel Primaris Redemptor Dreadnought

I spent a whole week of evenings hand painting this armour. Glazing and glazing Warpstone Glow over Caliban Green was very tedious. Spending so long with this model I had a lot of time to think. I was considering the aesthetic of this scheme. Technically it's a complicated blend which I think is very pleasing to the eye but if you're into realism then these highlights fall short of that expectation. Miniature painting is art and that means it's all about the painter expressing themselves. I do this by choosing to paint bright, sharp paint jobs that wouldn't look out of place in a 1990s White Dwarf (like Kim Syberg Spaces Wolves). How about you? What kind of style do you prefer? Would you ever spend a week hand blending the armour or would you break out the airbrush?

WIP: Dark Angels Primaris Lieutenant

This model is pretty cool because I bought him in Warhammer World last month. I hadn't been to Warhammer World for a couple of years and it's so good. We spent a good couple of hours in the exhibition area and had lunch in Bugman's and in the evening we played Blackstone Fortress. It was surreal to play in Bugman's with Phil Kelly walking around, Jes Goodwin sat two tables away from us and even Dan Harden of White Dwarf fame was in there playing Blood Bowl. Honestly, it was amazing. I want to go back now! Oh well, best crack on and finish this model. Let me know in the comments your Warhammer World stories.More after the jump

Chat: Conquest Issues 19 - 22

It's the end of the month and you're here to check to see if I've failed to complete painting my models from the monthly subscription to Conquest! Just looking at the picture above should be answer enough, but yes, yes I have completed everything before the next sub arrives. I'm still on track! After the jump I share the pictures of the armies so far and some thoughts.More after the jump
