Krieg – All Done.

It seems to be the week of endings for me. Ptolus on Sunday and now the Krieg army. I have thoroughly enjoyed painting these miniatures. There has been a wide mix of both Forgeworld and 3D printed miniatures, as well as the new Kill Team. They’ve taken a fair bit of time to do, but I am so pleased with how they came out. I admit, I really liked painting the artillery and the tank that came with this batch, which I am sure will come as a surprise to no one! Here are the latest:

The only thing which saddens me about them, is never being able to see them all together. A shame, but I am sure they will do well against their foes! As I will never see them together, here are the rest of them, which will have to do!

I think I can safely say that this is the largest army I have ever painted! I feel a though I have gained some achievement points!

Old School Blood Angels!

I have taken some time to paint my own miniatures this week. With the looming release of Indomitus, I want to clear some space on the ‘To Paint’ shelf. So I have worked on the base coated ‘mini’ marines. I collected the various parts from a load of bits boxes around the house and stuck them together. They are a mis-matched bunch of marines, but they are mine and I am sure there will be plenty of fights for them to get stuck into in the future.

There are twelve in the squad – I had extras so put them altogether and thought they may as well all be in the smae squad. There seemed to be no point in having two smaller squads and I am sure I can write a fluff reason for it if the need arises.

It has been really lovely as well to work on something for myself, rather than for a commission or for sale elsewhere. I plan on painting the Marine half as Blood Angels and keeping them, and then maybe actually playing some games with them! That would be a novel idea!
