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!

Krieg. Part 1

My latest task has been to paint a few Krieg miniatures – both Games Workshop and third party. The first batch of infantry was around thirty miniatures and six horses. Here they are:

My next set is a batch of 48, then some weapons platforms and another lot of 39 guys.

It is a good job I like the miniatures!!

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!

Daughters of Khaine

This post is a bit overdue, but I finally managed to finish the Daughters of Khaine! It’s difficult taking decent pictures while they are not on bases, but I did what I could.

I want to say how much I love the bases that go with these. They were a little complex – involving creating a wash from Emperor’s children and making sure that had the right strength of colour to it, but they turned out well.

Adeptus Titanicus – A larger battle!

I actually managed to squeeze in a game of Titans this week! With friends! We did a team up game, myself with Phil, Dave with Wolfy – both of which have never played before. I cooked dinner while lists were sorted.

My team ended up with A Warmaster, A warlord, 2 Reavers, 3 Warhounds and a knight set of 3

Fave’s team has 4 warlords, A warbringer and 3 Warhounds.

The set up looked like this:

Turn one was mostly moving Titans around into position. Turn two was firing and getting things damaged!

Turn two saw several engine kills. We lost a Warhound and the reavers took significant damage. Dave’s team had his blue warlord mullered and one of his Warhounds take a beating.

Turn three has our reavers blow up, but we took out the warlord. One of my Warhounds blew itself up (whoops) and another destroyed by a Warlord.

Turn four saw the Warmaster Titan punched in the face and thus ending the game – it was getting late, we were full of food.

Things to remember: Warlords should be deployed in the middle. Don’t get shot in the back.

I had fun! Mortis might have got beat today, but I still enjoyed playing and got to use the Warmaster for the first time! Good fun all round.

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.

Shadows of Brimstone: Dragon

I started this guy off ages ago and knew that I should get him finished soon. He is a great mini for the Shadows of Brimstone board game and was loads of fun to paint too.

He is rather big though, and I think the size of him was what made him take so long to finish. I do like painting large minis but they are a bit intimidating at times.

Here he is:

He is a bit too big for my light box, so some of the pics are of closeups! I’m pleased with the end result and glad to have him finished!

Grimy Ork.

I have recently worked on the ork sorcerer from the Dominion box set – the swampcalla shaman and his pot grot buddy.

I wanted to make them look grimy, as though they lived in a swamp before joining the rest of the orks. I opted for muted colours on the whole miniature, and even the yellow I used looks grubby thanks to some Agra’s earth shade.

I’m pleased how they both turned out, and they were fun to paint too. They didn’t take too long and if I were to paint an ork army, I’d paint them like this!

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!
