Tutorial: How to paint 2nd Edition style Ork Stormboyz by Rich

Hi all, Rich back again and this time with something a bit different, I’m back to my 2nd edition routes here with an iconic Ork Stormboy. This time however I thought I’d give you into an insight into how I paint my 2nd edition minis with a step by step tutorial. I won’t go into detail for each step because I am using basic techniques, washes, layers and edge highlights. Also, don’t worry too much if you don’t have these exact colours, similar colours from your favourite brand will work just fine. Just remember to keep your paints thin and your brush pointy!More after the jump

But I started to use the airbrush and found I really liked the look a bit more on top of having a bit more control on how the effect could look.More after the jump

Showcase: Adeptus Custodes Constantin Valdor by Rich

Hi all, Rich back again with some more Custodies, this time the lovely model from Forge World, Constantin Valdor. I really like this model, he feels far grander and imposing than his 40k counterpart Trajann Valoris. I’m starting to think about how I can ready my army for Apocalypse and I think he will work very nicely as the leader of my Custodies detachment, either as a Shield-Captain or a proxy for Trajann.More after the jump
