Brothers of Guilliman Terminators!

I’ve been painting some more of Sons of Guilliman today and I thoroughly enjoyed them. These kits are a bit older Than most I have done and as such, the mould lines needed extra attention. I think they were first made in 2004 so a lot has changed since they were new

What I love about these is the colour scheme. I love how bright they are and they are a pleasure to paint once again.

They have been a welcome change from the Lunar Auxilia I’ve worked on over the past couple of weeks, I hope you like them as much as I do!

Iron Warrior update!

I have begun the task of fixing up and touching up some of the Iron warriors. I’ve decided to focus on the infantry to begin with and have been doing one a day. So far it’s been good fun.

One task was to repair the casualties, which was just a case of matching the bits to the broken minis and regluing them.

Five need pinning but that can happen at a later time. Here are the finished ones.

I am enjoying this project greatly, and doing one a day is a surprisingly quick way to get through them. 84 left to go!

Then vehicles… yikes.

Death Guard.

Just a quick post today to show off some Death Guard miniatures I have painted for a regular. They will be featured on his YouTube channel at some point in the near future.

This is a link to one of his videos, featuring the miniatures I have painted in the past – worth checking out for sure!

I’m very pleased with how these turned out and it was quite difficult to send them away.

The base with the leaves and water effect I was particularly pleased with.

Project: Iron Warriors.

I recently bought an Iron Warriors from a friend in Europe. Mostly to help them out rather than because I needed them.

When they arrived, they had sustained severe damage during transit, which was disappointing. One of the tanks in particular was in quite poor condition due to the damage it sustained.

I am not an expert with resin, so I got in touch with one for advice and help. Leaky_cheese to the rescue!

So, instead of despair and a pile of broken bits, I now have a project. I will be painting one Iron Warrior a day from the infantry, and Cheese will be helping me fix the bigger stuff.

I have already started – here is the Iron warrior I touched up today.

I have a lot to do, and it is a shame they sustained the damage, but with a bit of time and effort, they’ll be great!

Streaming, a tank and a sneaky peak at the First 3D print

I have started streaming again. I am finding that a very enjoyable experience and I am sure my 3 regular viewers do too. It’s good to talk hobby while painting, but also just good to talk. I enjoy seeing the discussions people have with one another while I am painting too – not always about Warhammer either. I am still working out a schedule for it, though Monday nights are a definite.

I also found it to be very focusing and I achieved a lot on both streams I have done. Today, I finished a tank in 2 hours. I had already done the base colour this morning with the airbrush, and the rest I got through quickly.

Here is the tank in question:

The other thing discussed on the stream was the 3D printing. The first miniatures have been produced and I even have one painted!

These are meant to be the traitor version of the Solar Auxilia – the Lunar Auxilia for 30k. They are being produced under license too, so they’re the ‘read deal’. Here is a sneak peak of the first one!

Watch this space for more details soon!

Orks orks orks!

I live orks, and they are high on the list of next army should I ever manage to finish any of the ones I am working in personally. I like the silliness that comes with them, and the conversion potential for nearly everything is amazing.

I had these ones kicking about so decided to put them together and paint them up as a reminder of how to paint more than anything else:

I am pleased with how they turned out, and hope to do more orks in the future.

Dark Angels

I came to the realisation that I have never painted Dark Angels before – and this had to be rectified. I enjoy painting space marines, and has some spares so decided the make them almost heretics…

The Invictor Warsuit I am particularly pleased with because I have done some battle damage on it – something I usually reserve for tanks. I wanted to give it a go and I think it turned out quite well.

The aggressors are fun miniatures and the red and green really contrast and stand out against one another.

All in all some well turned out miniatures.

Adeptus Titanicus – A Game!!

It has been ages since I played anything remotely table top related. The house move and then settling in has put a stress on time. The good news is we are now in, the hobby room set up and we squeezed in a game of Titans!

I love AT. Titans are just cool and getting to stomp and blast your opponent is fun. As it has been a while, we went for the Axiom Manifold – A warlord, a reaver and a warhound – each which with weapons is around 1000 points.

How to play came back to me slowly, and this time we added in stratagems and missions. I had thermal mines and search and destroy respectively.

Unfortunately, my Reaver took a battering early on. By the end of turn one, it has no shield and had taken critical damage to the body. Emergency repairs had to be made, and revenge taken.

I managed to sneak my warhound in behind my opponent’s Reaver and blast it to death with my flamer – thankfully it did not explode!

Despite valiant effort on the part of the servitors, the Reaver was also destroyed. Both warhound shot killed by the warlords, and the game ended at turn 5.

I won on victory points – 25:3, which makes this game my first ever victory with Titans. I had a lot of fun and it makes me want to get those engines painted all the sooner!

The Judiciar

I finished this fellow last week and wanted to talk about him – and show him off too. I tried a few new things with his and refined others. First of all, here he is:

The refined technique was the old leather. I have tried it a few times in the past but feel this time it came together well. I added a few lighter highlights and nicks to give it a more cracked feel. I think that worked well.

The other new part is the sword. I wanted to try a lava technique. I started with the dark colours and worked primarily with orange. A few lighter colours towards the edge and a final black highlight along the middle created the effect I wanted.

All in all, I am really pleased with how he turned out. I am sure he will be inspiring the other Blood Angels with his deeds very soon!
