  1. Week 5: Chaos Marauder Horsemen

    This last week has stretched my ability to speedpaint. You may not consider 5 figures in a week speed painting but for me painting 5 cavalry figures it is. I've previously spent three weeks painting a single infantry figure, so this just feels wrong. I have managed 5 horsemen, but I found it hard work.
    The guys carry the slaanesh mark and so I have tried to give them a more luxurious and self indulgence combination of colours. I choose to go for a lilac and beige combination. I also ...
  2. Whisper (Daemonettes on Steeds of Slaanesh) Bases

    Well, some of the Whispers have been based and finished, ready for base-coating, so here they are. I went for a rubble and destroyed urban feel for the bases. I recently ordered some of the new Forge World weathering powders so will probably be using a lot of the concrete dust effects when I paint them.Like a lot of painters, I look at the painting on my older figures and cringe. Unfortunately I don't want to strip these models become they did come out so well at the time. Still unsure, do you think ...
  3. Setting Up a Hobby Space

    Firstly, apologies if this seems a bit rushed, but I finished this article once already and then in the act of posting, Google Chrome ate my post and it vanished into the ether. A couple of days later, now that I’ve stopped fuming, I sit down to rewrite it – hopefully better than ever before! In September I moved to Dundee, moving in with my boyfriend and getting a nice two-bedroom flat. But we only needed one bedroom, so the other room got turned into a hobby room. Setting up a dedicated ...
  4. Week 4: I finish a unit of crypt ghouls!

    Week four has come to an end and I've just about managed to complete my first unit of Crpyt ghouls.

    I have not yet assembled a ghast, but that will come how I've decided I want to model the blighter. I've been playing with ideas around some of the old Mordheim figures, or following Games Workshops lead and converting up a empire flagellant. I have a few from my empire army.

    I have tried to combine a few on this base to make casualty removal a bit easier. The rock ...
  5. Update!

    Sorry not to have said anything earlier about all this. The course is going fine, and we have finally sorted out the hobby room and bought a table! I got a new fancy camera with macro functionality and we have a big window so hopefully there will be some much better pictures from now on. Sneak preview of some things that should be coming up:-Article on the set-up of a hobby space.Daemons on their new urban overdone bases.Green of a converted Forgeworld Greater Daemon of Slaanesh.Painting step-by-step ...
  6. Week 3: A go at Crypt ghouls

    After spending the first two weeks with Chaos warhounds I thought that it was time to try my hand with a little Vampire Counts. Cypt ghouls feature in both of my vampire counts armies, so the logical conclusion was to have a go at them.
    The Vampire counts book states that these are living creatures and that "their skin is dark and filthy, their eyes bestial and insane, and their snarling lips reveal sharp pointed teeth". I therefore decided that I wanted these figures to look as if ...

  8. Grey Hunters

    I have begun painting my Grey Hunters in pure TT quality with purpose of playing with them. I will paint in "waves" and this time I have painted all armor and faces just to give them some color and abit character.  Maybe I will paint all my space wolfs like this before going into details and finally highlighting or maybe i will finnish this squad first:S
