  1. Fleshtearer Terminators all done

    I'm still not feeling 100%, so progress has been slow, the Wolves are temporarily on hold so I can put all my attention into the Fleshtearers.This is the first completed squad(barring their bases), theres more underway, so I should have a couple of 'in progress' shots for next update.  The aim was for a 'good gaming standard', which I think I've managed so far. As always, comments are welcome.

  2. Space Hulk - Brother Goriel

     Ok, This is my first ever painted space marine. Surprisingly this model was rather difficult for me for a number of reasons. 1) I never painted space marines before, I am not familiar with SMs heraldry, insignias, mythology and background. So a number of details was not really obvious how to paint. THis guy is a concoction of various blood angels I found here, on coolminiornot and various (often conflicting) advises ofered by my local people. 2) I have major problem painting red. This is not ...
  3. All you remember

    All you remember about your child being an infant is the incredible awe you felt about the precious miracle you created. You remember having plenty of time to bestow all your wisdom and knowledge. You thought wow goldyour child would take all of your advice and make fewer mistakes, and be much smarter than you were. You wished for your child to hurry and grow up.All you remember about your child being two is never using the restroom alone or getting to watch a movie without talking animals. You ...
  4. Space Wolves and Fleshtearers are go

    I now have two fully assembled Space Marine armies that need painting. there are my own Space Wolves, using the new plastics with some other bits and pieces and an all assault troop Fleshtarers army I am painting as a commission. The Fleshtearers have come to me already assembled and undercoated. As the customer had saved me the time and trouble of base coating the minatures, I offered to throw in an axtra couple of highlight stages over his proposed colour scheme. He agreed, and after seeing ...

  5. The dust has settled

    After an unsucessful Golden Demon, I spent a week with my good friend, Influenza. On the plus side, I've now recovered and seem to have assembled a whole Space Wolves army whilst I was ill. I don't remember most of it, but luckily it all seems to be game legal by the new codex. I'll get some images of those guys up as soon as I get chance to base them. Heres a link to the Golden Demon entry for those who are interested; Around my own Space Wolf force, I will also ...

  6. Some seriously weatherd military hardware

    During my recent trip to the Berkshire mountain (pictures for this will have to wait till album editing is fixed) we visited the Watervliet Arsenal in Albany. This is an active installation that has an interesting artillery museum. So, after filling some forms and getting tags we got inside. Next to the museum building there were several pieces of military hardware that was in rather worn out state. I figured ...
  7. Attempt at calligraphy

    A commissioner requested to put some lettering on his inquisitorial land raider, you know basic litanies to the emperor, some chapter name and such. Being given little specifics , or rather free rein I figured I will try it all in what people know as "Gothic". To make life a bit simpler I went for the simplest version of "black letters". Here is the result.   Text is rather crude translation into Latin, I am sure people who know the language will be terrified, ...
  8. Shadow Steed: based on WoW's Death Knights

    Thought I’d disappeared, did you? Well....I did. But I’m back!  With pictures! As you may or may not know, I am part of a D&D group.  One of my friend's characters is able to summon a Shadow Steed.  It's supposed to have all the color sucked out of it -- it's essentially a horse made only of shadow.  I paint minis, so he asked me to pick up a figurine for his Shadow Steed.  Although it's supposed to be all ...

  9. Blight Drone, update

    Between my calligraphy project (will post on this soon) and newly emerging Space Hulk I find some time to work on the blight drone. THis is the result of one intense Saturday - finished gun and moved forward with the skin.Skin on this model is rather difficult to paint because , as will many FW models, it is highly textured.Anyway here is the result 
  10. Blight Drone - painting rust

    1) Prime white
    2) Several layers of very dilute GW tin bits until you get solid coverage
    3) Then the frontal portion and sharp edges were picked up with VMC copper, blended into tin bits by series of metallic “washes” with either VMC copper or GW tin bits to get a smooth transition. Those who don’t have VMC Copper can use GW dwarf bronze.
    4) At this point the “basecoat” is done. To make it less shiny I glazed everything with VMC Smoke diluted ~ 1:3. ...
