Primaris Dante – finished!

I have finally finished Primaris Dante! He took me ages to complete but I am so proud of how he turned out. Here are the finished pictures:

Raven Guard – Part 2

This week has mostly been spent painting Raven Guard. They are a part of the same army I worked on a couple of weeks ago, and I have used the same scheme, only this time it included a Land Raider Achilles. This made me happy because it’s a tank, and I love painting tanks.

Here they are in all their shining glory.

I am glad to have done these, I’m pleased with the edge highlights on all of them, I think they look sharp. This makes the battle scuffs on the tank look really good – at least I think so.

Krieg! part 3

The next part of the Krieg mega list is done. This time it was mainly weapons teams and recruits. The recruits have a white stripe on their head to tell everyone they are the newbies. The weapons teams have extra mud as they are laying down!

Here are some pictures.

The next batch includes a tank, more weapons platforms and bombs! It’s going to be fun.

Krieg! Part 2

I have finished the next instalment of Krieg soldiers! This time it was infantry, two commissars and a flag carrier. They are a mix of Forgeworld and 3D prints and have been fun to work on. All the sculpts are different, which has bright it’s own challenges, but here they are in all their shining, muddy glory:

The flag was the perfect opportunity to practice a little freehand on, and I chose a design that was pretty simple but effective. I found it quick to do because it had only three colours and they are flat rather than blended. It just a case of transferring it onto the flag and filling in the colours.

I also featured two of my favourite miniatures together – bomb Krieger and Hero Commissar. All of these miniatures were fun to work on, which is good, because I have another batch to go. This time, it’s 30+ infantry, 6 weapons teams and several crates. I hope to be done by Friday, but we shall see what the week brings!

Ahriman number 14

When someone asks me to paint Ahriman for them, it makes me happy. I love the character and the miniature, but at this point I have to paint them for other people as I have loads!

This is the latest one that was a commission!

I’m so pleased with his cloak and the vibrant green warp fire. It was difficult to send him off… thankfully, he has now done so!

Legio Astorum Warhounds.

When I asked my husband what he wanted for Christmas this year, his response was painted Titans. This is something I can do! With gusto! I love Titans.

Some of them were half painted by him already, so it’s a case of finishing them off and making them look groovy. I started with the two Warhounds and have them done to a reasonable level already.

Here they are:

They are not perfect, but I am looking forward to blowing them up in the near future.

Intercessor Squad 1!

This is not my first intercessor squad. I have long since stopped counting how many I have painted. This is the first squad in 3rd Company for the Blood Angels I have been collecting.

I started painting them before the Pandemic.

I have finally finished them. I’m super pleased with how they turned out. I feel the edge highlighting is crisp and the colours decent. I used a background to take some pictures and then took some others without it.

They have now joined their brothers on the shelf and hopefully, I’ll be able to finish some more pre-pandemic minis soon!

Holiday day 3 – Warhammer World

I love Warhammer World. There is always more to see in the exhibition and the atmosphere is always buzzing and open.

This time, we explored the exhibition and I took pictures of things I would like to try out myself in the future, as well as characters I particularly like.

In the afternoon, we tried the Warhammer escape room, which was amazing. We crawled through tunnels, solved puzzles and ran away from chaos space marines! We managed to get out in 38 minutes! it was awesome.

A wicked day all round!

Primaris Dante.

I know Dante has not yet gone through the rubicon in 40k Lore, but that doesn’t mean I can’t make him as a primaris anyway. I saw several versions done by others online and decided to have a go myself.

I based him on sergeant Jovan, wanting to go for a post battle scene with some tyranids – what else would the venerable Chapter Master fight so hard against?

I have a lot of spares kicking about, so was able to gather some Blood Angel bits to use. I sliced off a symbol from a power fist and attached it to his chest after removing the skull in the centre of the Aquila.

Changing the helmet was tricky, but as I have some sanguinary guard spares so used one of those. After gouging out Jovan’s original helmet, it was a case of wiggling the new one into the gap. I used an encarmine axe as the Axe Mortalis and plan on using a brood Lord body for it to be buried in.

The trickiest part was Dante’s head. Usually, he keeps it covered but I think after the rejuvenation of the ‘embiggering’ he’d not be so worried. All I had to do was green stuff some long hair onto the mini… which was not too bad. I do need practice which might well happen this week!

Here he is, post battle and almost ready for painting!

Building 30 Intercessors at once

I did this a short while ago. I found some of the assault intercessor sprues and decided to get them all built in a batch. We do it in painting, why not building too?

Step 1: lay out the bases

Step 2: snip all the parts out and arrange them on their bases in neat piles.

Step 3: get rid of the flash and mold-lines and glue them all together.

Step 4: find that one mental guy…

Step 5: undercoat!

Looks like I’m going to be painted some marines pretty soon!
