#MonsterMarch 3 (2019) – Part 5 Finale

KDM Dragon king With the lava effect base done and dusted on the Dragon king, and with the final little cleanup tasks completed he is ready to face down the survivors of Kingdom death. I have also painted up the four dragon king armour survivors and their bases to partially match the beast they are made from. KDM is very monster hunter in its approach to armour and weapons, Rip creatures apart and use the remains to make gear. Bonus model – Knight armour of brother Nixios With so much of my focus being on the Void Jackals it would...continue reading

Monster March 2019 – Part 3: The Work Continues

Warlord Titan I have painted the edges of the armour plates and have made a start on the weapons by giving the power claw its first pass of paint applications.   Armigers Work continues on Venge getting him undercoated and laying down the base colour scheme as well as getting the armour trim finished. I now need to give the weapons another pass to bring them up to a good standard. I can do cleanup and final detailing tasks on both armigers and the warlord titan at the same time. Game colour dropper bottles make great stands for Armiger torsos.Venge...continue reading

Monster March 3 – Part 2: Progress is Being Made

Warlord Titan & armigers. I am putting these three models together in a group update as they are all using my void jackals colour scheme and are roughly the same size. The Warlord Titan (Rex monte) has been posted striding forwards into battle. Closing the distance between himself and his foes as I selected the power claw option (Purely for aesthetic reasons. As If I ever acquire the 40k scale one I would still get the power claw as it looks awesome.) to go with the plasma and laser blasters. As this model is to be used as a representative...continue reading

Monster March 2019 – Part 1: The Planning Stages

Monster March is upon us again, graciously hosted by Swordmasterofhoeth ( https://swordmasterofhoeth.blogspot.com/ ) and with Monster march comes big beasties.

Sylvaneth Wood Elf Wild Riders of Kurnous Conversion & Sculpting

First, some fluff. As the personal guard of Orion, Wild Riders of Kurnous are aggressive and impulsive cavalry and much tougher than Glade Riders. They have transcended the status of elf and, through Orion have become akin to the forest spirits. They, like all forest spirits, become dormant during the winter but experience a violent rebirth in the spring, raiding lands from allied Bretonnia to the far north. Killing everyone from Bretonnians, Orcs, Beastmen, and even Wood Elves who accidentally cross paths with the wild hunt. Total, out of control badassery! As a Wood Elf player, you have got to...continue reading

Creating a Rogue’s Gallery Diorama for Dark Heresy – Part #2

The time is nigh for some of the antagonists to rise and for the first diorama to be plotted out. The Bleeding Wound Created during the 15th founding the Element Guardians were a blood angels successor chapter created from pre-heresy blood angels geneseed samples. For a time, this seemed to have been a success as the Element guardians did not show any signs of the black rage that manifested within other blood angel sourced chapters. The chapters librarians started using blood rites to enhance the fighting abilities of their brethren. These affectionately titled ‘Blood monks’ would eventually merge with the...continue reading

Creating a Rogue’s Gallery Diorama for Dark Heresy – Part #1

While playing Dark Heresy with my group of friends as the game master I had a few questions about what things looked like from a couple of those who did not play 40k that much. As such an idea formed, one where I could first create models to show them what their characters were seeing and then later after a few suggestions it turned into creating a couple of small dioramas depicting some potential scenes. The Background This was where I started when it came to create a setting for me to run my Dark heresy campaigns. The main location...continue reading
