Warhammer 40,000 – Shadow Spear introduced some pretty cool new units to the Primaris Space Marine range. This time around I’m painting they in the colors of Ultramar. These guys are destined to join up with the other Ultramarines I recently painted as part of an ever-expanding force.Read More
Warhammer 40,000 – With some of my completed projects for clients they’ll randomly need to add models to their forces. This is usually because of changes in the meta or changes to points costs. But often it’s because they acquired a new piece for their collection and want it to match with the rest of their force.Read More
Warhammer 40,000 – I love Imperial Knights. The giant stompy robots are a great addition to Warhammer 40K. Not as powerful as their bigger brothers and far less cost prohibitive the Knights bring a sense of epic battles to the tabletop. The difference in scale between your average trooper and one of these makes such an amazing scene on the table.Read More
Warhammer 40,000 – Our week one event went off with only a minor hitch. Two of our players couldn't make it which left us with 6 guys. It would have been easy to play a team of two and a one vs. one game, but because three of the players hadn't played since 6th edition and hadn't had any play experience we opted to do a team battle of 3 vs. 3 (total of 1500 points per side).Read More
Warhammer 40,000 - The last set of the Gathering Storm models is probably my favorite. Although I can't stand the Ultramarines in general it's pretty cool to see Robute wake up and do the action hero thing. It's also cool to see Cypher doing the Clint Eastwood, Man with No Name pose for the new kit. The Grey Knight Grandmaster is the weakest of the models but he still looks pretty amazing.
Grand Master Voldus is a typical Grey Knight model. Lots of details all over the armor but other wise its a similar pose to other terminator characters. For this one I painted to match the clients other Grey Knight models which don't use metallic silver for the armor.
Roubute Guilliman is an imposing Monsterous Creature. About the same size as a Daemon Prince he's an imposing figure. My client asked that I paint him a pale blue so that it looked better with his Salamanders and Grey Knights. I'm happy with how the blue looks next to the gold it feels a little more regal to me than the traditional blue and gold. For the sword and torches I used fluorescent paints with a yellow wash to get that bright flame effect.
Warhammer 40,000 – The boys in blue make a return to my table. To go along with the rest of the project, I'm working on a Landspeeder Storm and Storm Talon. The Landspeeder was partially assembled incorrectly, so I had to do my best to make it look ok, the plastic glue my client used was to strong of a bond to break apart without damaging so this will be a unique version of the vehicle.Read More
Warhammer 40,000 – Two landspeeder storms and a drop pod are next on the list for my Ultramarine client. Both of these kits fall into the "least favorite to build" category for most gamers so I tend to see many of them come through for either build and paint or just build requests. After you have as many under your belt as I do it becomes quite easy to build them. Of course getting the drop pod doors to line up perfectly is still damn near impossible.Read More
Warhammer 40,000 – I wrapped up the first four drop pods for my Ultramarine client. These are nice a simple tabletop quality. When he picked these up he dropped off another pod and a few land speeder storms so it looks like I won't be putting away the blue paint anytime soon!Read More
Warhammer 40,000 – What's better than one drop pod? How about four? I just wrapped up these for a client to a basic 3-color+ job. At this point I've assembeled and painted about 25 of these and feel like it gets just a little easier each time.Read More
