Update on my Primaris Librarian in Phobos Armour painted as a Commander for my Silver Skulls Kill Team. For those who remember my last post, I wasn't sure about the bright bone robes so I changed the camo cloak to a dark grey camouflage pattern like on the studio version. I think it was the right choice, as it makes the blue metallic armour really pop and fits the sombre appearance of my Silver Skulls models. I wanted a similar abstract pattern like on the studio version, with colours matching my Sector Mechanicus terrain. I just started blocking in some shapes until I achieved an aesthetically pleasing distribution. Painting camouflage on miniatures is always challenging. You want a convincing yet eye-pleasing effect that doesn't break up shapes like real camouflage. What do you think?
Hi everyone, it's been quite a long time since my last post. This year has been especially busy for me so I haven't had the time to do as much painting as I wanted. In saying that I did manage to get some painting done thus may I present, my Necropolis Hawk Intercessor.More after the jump
Hello and welcome to Inso's World again.This week has been a good one. Work has been great, sometimes challenging, but definitely a case of when the going gets tough, the team pulls together... and team-work, makes the dream work!Speaking of team-work, last night a large clump of my work mates gathered in my local last night and we all had a blast together. I got to introduce my wife to my friends and even threw a few shapes on the dance floor... a cracking night was had by all!I have had my son and his girlfriend visiting this week as well and we have been enjoying a few quality days together. He is in good spirits and it is always nice to see him.I have had notification that a Kickstarter pledge is in the delivery pipeline so it looks like I'll be getting some troops to chop up pretty soon. Which ones? These ones:Kickstarter LinkI have pledged for the Northmen and will have about 42 infantry to turn into men-at-arms for my Primaris Knights:Click the Pic!There will be lots more information, once I have recie
This Chaplain has been a bit of a slow burner this month. I've made great progress with the robes. I'm really happy with those and I have to paint the armour next. Rear image of the model after the jump. More after the jump
In my last post I wrote about how hard the Apothecary was to paint. I've thrown in the towel. I got so tired of detailing over white armour that I picked up a different model to paint. This Infiltrator Sergeant sat upon a Get a Grip Basic is my 'quick win' project to keep motivation up. I'm hoping a quick turn around on this model will help with my enthusiasm with the Apothecary.
Today's post I just wanted to share the collection so far. It's not finished but it's at a size that's worth sharing. After the jump I tell you how many points it is and why this isn't an army I'd game with.More after the jump
I'm becoming quite efficient with my Conquest painting publication project, I'm finishing the monthly batch of models earlier and earlier. I finished April's batch with a good two and half weeks spare which mean't I could make a real dent in the Shadowspear boxset. After the jump I share with you the seven models I've completed so far.More after the jump
Wow! I've painted something that isn't green! This model is easily my favourite from the Shadowspear boxed set. I love the dynamic pose. The flow from the robes is just a miracle in plastic casting. After the jump I share more angles as well as a comparison with my other Librarian.More after the jump
Issue 29. Let that seep in for a moment. I never would have thought I could have kept up with 29 weekly issues of a magazine subscription but here we are. More pictures after the jump. More after the jump
Ah the Suppressors. Generally regarded as a silly looking unit. My first impression was something very similar, I thought they looked odd floating in mid air while trying to aim such a long weapon. What do I think of them now? Well after the jump I reveal all!More after the jump
Finally, my Silver Skulls Kill Team is complete (for now). This took longer than expected. I really need to find more efficient ways of painting... anyways, learn more about Sergeant Garev and his team, assembled by decree by Captain Krystofer of the 3rd Company himself.More after the jump
Hello all,Welcome once again to the weird and wonderful workings of my overactive imagination!I’m still thinking about Primaris Marines a lot, and despite gaping in jealous wonder at the nasty combinations that Chaos Marines appear to be about to receive in the form of new rules, prayers etc to go with their new models, I’ve been thinking in particular about Primaris Infiltrators and what the implications for them might be from previous releases by GW. And then of course the implications of what might follow beyond that!So, what the hell do I mean by that? Read more »
Hi all,Welcome to the first of my detailed unit reviews for the Primaris Marines, the Gravis Captain! Available in the Dark Imperium Boxed Set, but interestingly, not separately as a clampack, the Gravis Captain is the heaviest class of HQ currently available to the Primaris Marines.Read more »
Surprise! Did you see that coming? Of course not, because they are Raven Guard, covert warfare specialists... I don’t usually share my Raven Guard on the blog because they are my 'gaming army’ I paint them cleanly but simply. I do however love the Dark Fury assault squad from Forge World which I use as Vanguard Veterans in games. I was pleased with how they came out when I painted them so I thought I would share them with you.More after the jump
Hi all,Welcome to my detailed review of the Primaris units within the Space Marine codex. I’m very much hoping for this to be a ‘living’ document for want of a better term, and so as FAQ’s etc are released I’ll update this, and any comments or insight that you guys can provide will most certainly be added to the review.I’ve tried several times over the years to define a method for assessing units, and my latest iteration of that will take an appropriately legendary 40k approach, which I’m calling the MARBO method.MobilityThis section will cover all the mobility stats and options available to a particular unit, assessing whether it’s a strength or weakness of the model, what can be done to mitigate any weaknesses or enhance its strengths.AurasKind of self-explanatory, but equally, I’ll try to look a little beyond the obvious to understand how those auras can be stretched, where they are most effective and how best to utilise them on the battlefield. Auras I have found are one of those areas that has far more d
