Dreadtober 2019 - Moar Metallics

#Dreadtober update and yet moar application of the metallics. This is the mid-season finale so to speak, whereby I apply the final set of highlights before I add a wash layer to grime it up a bit. I believe it's Valejo Game Color Gun Metal and Shining Gold [whatever they're in this intro set and still going strong after 9 years] sponged on for the texture.It works particularly well on the hip joint. There are still areas I can't decide how to paint but I've no doubt my decision will crystallise green or bronze without delay when the time comes.The weapons also got their highlights, I even had an Imperial Knight Icarus array that got a quick highlight. I will regret not pursuing the Deathwing Knights in parallel but that would dismiss my feelings that it would be too much to take on simultaneously and despite the metals being the same the application requires a different approach. The terminators are much smaller and need more care, whereas this thing is a beast and I can just slap it on and any issues can be

Dreadtober 2019 - Metallics

Dreadtober continues inexorably but as expected my progress is slow. In fairness this has nothing to do with the model or even the usually problematic brassy bronze. No it has been impacted both by the weather and general fatigue. Heavy rain has meant the garden has flooded and wading to the Man Cave in my wellies has often been sufficient to discourage me even attempting to crack on with my Dread. One night I braved the elements to get out there and slap on some Balthasar Gold on top of the Warplock Bronze.Weapon options too. Originally I hoped to throw in my Deathwing Knights as well, as they are at the same stage but half an hour was just about as much as I could do before I felt it was time to go to bed. I've been monitoring my sleep again using Google Fit, I think I've made a little improvement in my sleep schedule. There are still the occasional late nights but I think they're more uncommon now. I've had some early nights too, which doesn't help the hobby obviously but should help me long-term.Another n

Dreadtober 2019 - A 'cheaters' guide...

Dreadtober begins next week and I have this Redemptor Dreadnought to do. Now it's supposed to be you build and paint your Dreadnought [or equivalent] in the month but I know my hobby pace and knew building it in advance was a minimum.I also got it based, primed, base-coated and then painted the base [along with a lot of other models]. Now this took a significant amount of time to get to this stage, so I wouldn't have achieved this and potentially finish the model in month otherwise. At least now I have a fighting chance.All the brassy bronze is the next priority [ I will start that on the 1st] and my prior brassy bronze exploits will reveal this can break me, so I need to hold strong and get all those bits metalled up so I can enjoy painting the greens! And we all know how much I love doing that - just a bit above Ravenwing... is there anything I actually like to paint? Sometimes I wonder why I put myself through all this if it's all so difficult, but we rise to the challenge and maybe that is the reason - th

Epic Space Marines for Apocalypse

Here are the Marines I have (painted, so far...) organized for use in the current version of Warhammer 40,000: Apocalypse!  The entire force (so far!)As with the Eldar, these were previously organized for Future War Commander - where an element is an element and the number of figures on each stand wasn't really important, so I wasn't really fussed about having the correct number of itty-bitty warriors on each stand. Consequently, a number of these elements have less than the basic number of models that should be on a stand - in these cases I assume that it represents the basic/minimum number that would be in a squad - for example,  you can field Terminators in squads of five or ten, my stands have only three on each of them (because I only had a handful of them and I wanted more than just two squads (plus a few spares left over) and needed something I could use as a CO/HQ element - so I did four stands of three plus a smaller stand of just one - which would represent the HQ element.Marine Vangu

A Few More Epic 40K Minis

I finished up a few more Epic minis over the weekend...Four plastic Whirlwinds.Seven metal Vindicators (I already have another painted for a total of eight). not sure if any of those things out front count as a Siege Shield...?)All of these will probably be organized into two Spearhead detachments of four Vindicators and two Whirlwinds. I can't seem to find my Apocalypse rules. But I'm pretty sure Spearhead Detachment can have a maximum of six Heavy Support - of which all of these are... (so I can't put ALL the vindicators in one big detachment!)Here's something odd... I have a detachment with four squads of Terminators... and a captain n terminator armour. To transport those Terminators I thought I'd use Land Raiders... unfortunately Terminators are Elites and land raiders are NOT considered Transports - they're considered Heavy Support! A Vanguard Detachment can have up to SIX Elites, but only two Heavy Support... A Spearhead Detachment can have up to SIX Heavy Support... but only two Elites!? WTF!?I also f

Ultramarines Razorback

Razorbacks are common variations of the Rhino chassis that can be armed with a variety of powerful turret-mounted heavy weapon systems that offer the squads they carry effective fire support before and after they disembark. This Space Marine Ultramarines Razorback was on display at Warhammer World. I have been working on (for too long now) a Grey Knights Razorback. The post Ultramarines Razorback appeared first on Felix's Gaming Pages.

30k – Legion Kharybdis Assault Claws

Hello! As promised – it’s time for big toys! I would like to present you two colossal Kharybdis Assault Claws. On the picture above I placed a model of a soldier for Infinity system in 28mm scale. These powerful drop-pods were used by the Legions as a ship-to-ship vehicle to attack enemy spaceships. They also served as a transport unit that carried soldiers from orbit to battlefield. Both vehicles were painted in the colours of the White Scars Legion. Commission painting services – minisforwar@gmail.com / Messenger.

40k – White Scars Bikes & Rhinos

Hello! Time for another White Scars models While organizing the photos I found one of the older folders, containing unpublished photos (not the last one anyway). You can see a really big unit of Outrider Bikes, a few Attack Bikes and Rhino vehicles. Everything was treated with a pretty strong weathering using MIG pigments. I will devote one more entry to the above-mentioned White Scars this week, containing two really LARGE models. Feel warned! Commission painting services – minisforwar@gmail.com / Messenger

40k – White Scars Heroes

Hello! In today’s post I would like to present to you one of my older works. These are the different heroes painted in the colours of the White Scars. As you have probably noticed, some of them contain minor conversions (especially weapons). I hope you will like them! I think that newly published Space Marines codex and White Scars supplement are moving these armies on battle tables again. I keep my fingers crossed!

Dark Angels - Ravenwing Dark Shroud part 10 - TO DONE!

And here we are the Ravenwing Dark Shroud is complete. I think I'm satisfied with the result. As usual there are elements that exceed my expectations while there are others that fall short, or are compromised.But I'm not overly fussed about the result, which I appreciate sounds a little underwhelming. This is a model I need in my army to make the Ravenwing more effective. Their function/inclusion is a key element of taking Ravenwing so he had to be done.And the result matches my existing Ravenwing so all those boxes are ticked. The black highlights are exactly as expected which is good but as predicted the varnish did show up some brush strokes, but I'll not lose sleep over them.Almost everything else went to plan, although I didn't take any pictures with the plasma battery.The red glass windows are another area that falls a little short. A lot of the preparatory shading/highlights have been neutralized by the Tamiya Clear Red X-27, which is a shame. I should probably go super contrast next time, probabl
