  1. Space Hulk Part 01

    Ok, so just before gamesday i managed to get a copy of space hulk which im dead chuffed about since i played it a few times when i was a kid and loved the game. The models themselves are so well detailed i cracked it open and started painting a couple of the models. The gold and stuff is actually done with a mix of metallic paint and some non-metallic paints, in some areas i think one dominated the other and vice versa but i have enjoyed painting these minis so far. Comments and crits very welcome. ...
  2. Gamesday Entry

    Well i have been fairly quiet last few months because i was working on some Gamesday entries. I went to my first GD a couple months ago and managed to get 2 finalist pin badges for my 2 entries. Im happy with the results and the input people have given me. I've definately learnt alot, anyway enough of the boring stuff and onto some piccys (some of these are during the wip stage).   Oh and i entered in my thousand sons dreadnought, i redid the base to something a bit fancier than the ...
  3. Quick update

    Just a quick one; heres the pics of the bloodbowl figures as they are. The deathroller pilot is in all black, but I have highlighted the various bits of his kit in different colours. With the aim being to break up the figure whilst still being 'black'. The blitzers mask seems perhaps a little too bright(the red anyway) although that may be the picture. These are the first images using a new lighting set up, and I definitely need an extra light source when I try again.

  5. Plenty of progress... but no achievements

    Lots of things underway at the moment, sadly nothing completed as yet. First off is the continuing Death Company for the flesh tearers force, the whole squad is up to this stage but the rest were out of focus :P The roller itself is pretty much complete, and the pilot will be, at least comparatively, easy.Now well underway is the Elf Blitzer, part of the same comission and painted in the style of Boba Fett. Still a bit of work to do but I'm quite pleased with the kind of grubby/dusty effect ...

  6. Inquisitorial land raider. More flatwork

    I finally finished everything I wanted to finish on this mini. The bad thing about commission is that you actually have to paint them , the good thing about commissions is that you can experiment and paint things that you wouldn't normally paint. This particular "mini" by the nature of request involved doing substantial amount of coherent freehand that I have never done before. Well, as a confidence building measure it was very useful.

  7. Death Company

    Just a quick update;All fleshtearer assault troops are complete, and have begun work on the death company and chaplain. Heres a pic of the 'test' marine I did for the death company colours; Shouldn't be too long till my dedicated workspace is complete now, which should make both photo taking and serious painting a lot easier. The deathroller is mostly complete, although it's a bit plain at the moment, the last few details will break it up nicely once they're complete. The highlighting may look ...

  8. Cirith Ungol - Part 1

    Two weeks ago I started a project which seems to be the most ambitious of mine - The Tower of Cirith Ungol. I was inspired by Tolkiens book and the film and I've got a huge box with Mordor warriors by GW. So I want to make a diorama showing Shagrat fighting against Gorbag. If everything goes right the Tower will be about 30-40 sm high and inhabited with 10-15 Mordor Urukhajs and Orcs. By the time it looks rather poor, but I hope it's just the beginning.

  10. Busy Busy

     The fleshtearer assault troops are nearly all complete, here are some pics of the 12 completed and the last 8 still 'in progress' the main bodies are just missing a blacklining stage, I still find it surprising what a difference it make to the figure overall;  And finally, the first shots of the Deathroller I am doing around the Fleshtearers as another commison. Not a lot to see yet, but the front roller is pretty much complete.And around both of these and some OU study, I'm putting ...
