Inquisitorial Stormtrooper

November 3, 2016

Another model for Indefragable, this is an Inquisitorial Stormtrooper ‘concept’ model. The idea was Indy’s and was influenced by the Weyland Yutani Commandos from Alien 3, with their creepy faceless aspect and dirty-white armour.

Battle Brothers

November 3, 2016

Long overdue for an update! A few things to show tonight and lots more coming soon. First up, some Blood Angels painted for my good friend Indefragable from The Bolter & Chainsword.

White Scars Jubal Khan and Biker

September 29, 2016

I painted these as a commission for a very good friend from across the pond. They will act as a painting ‘guide’ for his full White Scars force. First time I’ve airbrushed white power armour so was a bit experimental but I’m happy with how they turned out. Hope you like them too! Jubal Khan, […]

Re-photographing the Stormraven

September 18, 2016

I was never really happy with the photos I took of my Stormraven – it didn’t fit in my lightbox and I struggled to light it without it being over exposed. But I have a new, bigger lightbox now so thought I’d take some more pics which are a truer representation of the real thing. […]

How to paint Blood Angels – Part III

September 18, 2016

Welcome to the third and final part of this tutorial on how I paint my Blood Angels. Check out Part I here and Part II here. The last part is where we add the final details to the model and it’s difficult to record this ‘step-by-step’ as everything is kind of happening at the same […]

Lord of the Rings – Frodo and Sam

August 30, 2016

I painted these for a friend who has a rather large tarantula. He assures me this gigantic spider is NOT one of the Ungoliant, but they are a gift for her nonetheless!

How to paint Blood Angels – Part II

August 17, 2016

Welcome to the second part of this three-part tutorial on how I paint my Blood Angels. Check out Part I here where we cover the base red armour and airbrush steps, and Part III here which gives an overview of the finishing touches. Now it’s on to detailing the model… Step 6 Paint all the […]

Blood-Angels-Land-Speeder-Squadron-01

Blood Angels Land Speeder Squadron

August 8, 2016

As with the Drop Pods, only one of these (Speeder No. II) was painted by me, and the other two were matched by Peter at Scar’s Miniature Madness. Hope you like them!

Blood-Angels-Drop-Pods-01

Blood Angels Drop Pods

August 8, 2016

Here we have a trio of Drop Pods. The middle one was painted by me and, as when I’ve painted a unit I tend to want to move on to another rather than paint more of the same, I commissioned the talented Mr. Peter Zuidgeest at Scar’s Miniature Madness to paint the other two. He […]

Imperial-Knight-Gerantius-01

Gerantius, the Green Knight, the Forgotten Knight

August 4, 2016

I went with a turquoise green for Gerantius, using Daler Rowney FW artist’s acrylic inks. A bit brighter and more contrasting than the Games Workshop studio paint job. Everything is magnetised and you can see how I did that here. Although Gerantius himself can only take the thermal cannon, I decided to paint the battle […]

Blood-Angels-Lemartes-Guardian-of-the-Lost-01

Lemartes, Guardian of the Lost

July 30, 2016

I fell in love with this model as soon as it came out and knew I had to paint it! As he’s quite fancy I thought he’d make a good Lemartes rather than a standard Chaplain so I replaced the Infernus pistol he came with for a Forge World bolt pistol.

How to paint Blood Angels – Part I

July 3, 2016

Welcome to the first in a three-part tutorial on how I paint my Blood Angels. Check out Part II here where we cover detailing the model, and Part III here which gives an overview of the finishing touches. Lots of people have asked me how I paint the red armour on my Blood Angels. I […]

How to magnetise an Imperial Knight

July 2, 2016

Admittedly I’m a bit late to the party here – there are loads of tutorials online on this subject, including those dealing with the newer Crusader / Warden Knight kit. However when I finally got around to building my first Knight and watched a few videos I picked out a few things I thought could […]

Blood-Angels-Commander-Dante-01

Commander Dante

June 19, 2016

Here’s my kitbash of Dante. Some of the bits aren’t perfect but I’ve wanted to get a model done ever since the last codex came out so used what I had to hand. I wanted the armour to look suitably ancient – not damaged but worn and ‘antique’ looking, so I used Rub n’ Buff […]

Warhammer Fest 2016

May 15, 2016

Hello world! I have resurfaced from a Hobby Hiatus and what better springboard than Warhammer Fest, which I attended yesterday with my good friend, Captain Castus. There was much to see and I took loads of pics, some of which you can peruse below. Highlights for me were the Stormbird, the Space Wolves stuff coming […]

Blood-Angels-Stormraven-01

Blood Angels Stormraven Gunship

January 6, 2016

Happy new year everyone! It’s been a while since I posted – mainly because I have a lot of half finished models for gaming and no finished ones to show – but I intend to be posting a bit more often from now on. You could call it a New Year’s Resolution I suppose… First […]

I’m ALIVE!

November 14, 2015

Wow, it’s been a long time since I posted! It’s not that I haven’t been hobbying, more that I’ve been preparing things in secret for a little friendly tournament some friends and I partake in when we have the time. Now all our lists are revealed I can in turn reveal what I’ve been working […]

Blood-Angels-Assault-Marines-Meltacide

‘Meltacide’ Assault Squad

July 12, 2015

Finished up my ‘Meltacide’ Assault Squad yesterday. I didn’t add battle damage as I normally do – partly because the models are quite detailed due to the Vanguard parts, partly due to the fact I put a bit more effort into the edge highlighting and didn’t want to cover it up – and partly because […]

Blood-Angels-Sanguinary-Priest-01

Blood Angels Sanguinary Priest

June 14, 2015

Simple kitbash on this awesome model to add a MKIV jump pack and Relics of Baal, ‘Valour’s Edge’ (AP2 power sword ) and ‘Fury of Baal’ (a plasma pistol that doesn’t Get Hot ) I went with green instead of my usual blue to differentiate Valour’s Edge from my usual blue power weapons. And for […]

MephMKII-WIP-01

Blood Angels update

April 3, 2015

It’s been a bit quiet around here of late – work and stuff gets in the way of the Hobby sometimes as I’m sure you’re all well aware 😉 No paint but I do have some works in the pipeline. First and foremost is Mephiston MKII made by Master of the Forge as a commission. […]

Quantum-Gothic-Comm-Dish-05

Quantum Gothic Radar / Comm Dish

March 12, 2015

Something a bit different today – a scenery / terrain / objective piece by Quantum Gothic. It’s an excellent kit; well designed, excellent quality and great fun to paint. I wanted it to look like an ancient relic so have gone for a worn, rough look with the paint job. I have a few more […]

Forge-World-Blood-Angels-Death-Company-01

Forge World kitbashed Death Company

February 26, 2015

A few bits need touching up (the green bits mainly) but here are the “finished” reinforcements for my Death Company… A few people have asked me about how I painted the black. It was pretty simple really; I primed them black (obviously) then gave them a spray from above with my airbrush using Vallejo Model […]

Blood-Angels-Land-Raider-Redeemer-01

Land Raider PLUS (blue lights)

February 9, 2015

Your eyes do not deceive you! This is the same Land Raider I posted a short while ago that was featured in White Dwarf. I wasn’t happy with the headlight OSL so decided to go back and give it another shot. I tried an orange / yellow glow at first like the Baal Pred but […]

REVIEW: Humbrol Gloss Clear

February 6, 2015

Here it is – the answer to all hobbyist’s prayers! Well, maybe not all hobbyists, but those who are familiar with the old Johnson’s Klear floor polish will know how useful a substance that was for our hobby and what a gap was left when it was replaced with a completely different and much less […]

How to photograph miniatures

January 11, 2015

A few people have asked me about my miniature photo set up so I thought I’d note down how I do it and the equipment I use. This is be no means intended to be a definitive guide to miniature photography – there are doubtless improvements that could be made and better equipment that could […]

Blood Angels Progress Update

January 2, 2015

Happy new year everyone! Timing of the holiday fell kindly for me and I was able to get some hobby-time in this week. On the painting table are the MKI Baal Predator (remember her?!), some newly fallen brethren for the Death Company, and in light of the new codex Troops / Elites changes – some […]
