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. … Read More
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 … Read More
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 … Read More
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 … Read More
Finally finished this bad boy – really happy with how it came out, hope you like! FW Death Company coming up next…
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 … Read More
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 … Read More
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 … Read More
Painting of the MKI Baal Pred will commence shortly but meantime the ranks of my Death Company are due to be reinforced… Marines built from a combination of Forge World MKV assault squad, MKIV assault squad, MKIV despoilers and bits from the Death Company kit.
A long time in the making (both for Lamenter over at masteroftheforge.com who built and sculpted the model and me who painted it) I give you Mephiston, Lord of Death… Recipe for red armour (layered one after the other, smaller and smaller areas each coat): 1) Vallejo Model Color Hull Red 2) Vallejo Model Color … Read More
Cyrox on The Bolter and Chainsword kindly pointed out to me that my Land Raider was featured in this week’s White Dwarf (#45) in Readers Model of the Week! I used to subscribe to White Dwarf but since it went weekly there’s no subscription option so I just pick up the issues featuring releases I’m … Read More
A MKI Baal Predator! With assault cannons from http://store.forgeplanet.com/
Little was known about this ‘technical paint’ from Games Workshop after it was released. Their own website doesn’t go into much detail about what it is or what it does. As to the former, a few Google searches brought up claims that it was the acrylic binder they mix with pigment to make their paints, … Read More
Finally finished this guy for my pal Skringly. I tried brush-painted weathering instead of sponged on for a bit more control – I am happy with the results! Click for larger pics… A few people have asked how I painted the yellow and the power maul so thought I’d write down the process. The yellow … Read More
Can you guess the klans..?
Time for a break from the Blood Angels and Bad Moonz, I’m going to be painting this Imperial Fist 5th Company Captain for a friend of mine…
Finally finished the first little mob of boyz for the Bad Moonz. There will be 30 in total riding around in three Trukks. But first it’s time for a break from green… Click image for larger version. I’ve been asked a couple of times how I did the rusty metal and skin on these so … Read More
I discovered today that the creator of one of my favourite worlds is buried just 30 minutes drive from where I live. So I decided to pay him and his beloved wife a little visit… Rest in peace, Beren & Luthien.
Great day at the Ricoh Arena with Captain Castus; enjoyed the Forge World Seminar, demo pods, chatting with the GW/FW teams and ogling at the Golden Demon 2014 entries 🙂 Here are some pics I took, on my phone I’m afraid so apologies for the quality… Games Workshop display Forge World display (I should have … Read More
Halfway through the unit now, here’s how they’re looking…
A lot of people ask me how I achieve the deep red on my Blood Angels so I thought I’d do a little step-by-step. In the example below I use a Drop Pod door but the principle and method are the same for infantry. I use an airbrush to apply the primers and base colour. … Read More
A break from the Blood Angels I’m painting up a 10-boy unit of grunts for the Bad Moonz. I’ve gone for a yellow-y green as opposed to the typical yellow seen on Bad Moonz – what do you think?! These are still a work in progress of course but hopefully you can see where I’m … Read More
One of my favourite Ork character models. This is the OOP metal one, painted a few years ago now but still happy with the paint job…
One of my favourite pieces of Ork tech 🙂 I painted this a couple of years ago – this is the resin one, before they released the new plastic one. I have one of those too and will be painting it up soon and putting this one on eBay.
Here’s another one I did a while ago but only just got around to taking some decent pics. Brother-Captain Erasmus Tycho kit bash.
This cantankerous contraption was made for me by my good friend, Skrall, from a Dreadknight, a Deff Dread and a whole load of other bits. Painted by me.
I painted this quite a long time ago but it is one of my favourites. The skull helm was painted following Anja Wettergren’s ‘Eavy Metal Masterclass in White Dwarf no. 361.
My first commission, for a client in the States.
One of my favourite kits – the start of an army of (not quite yellow) Bad Moonz. Proud to say this was featured in White Dwarf 🙂
A new ride for the Death Company – incentive to expand the unit!
