April 24, 2018 - 12:29

I bought the Shadespire boxed game back in November, and despite it only having eight models in it, I've only just finished painting it! Check out the close ups after the jump. More after the jump

Showcase: Thousand Sons and Magnus the Red by Silvernome

April 21, 2018 - 11:00

Hello everyone, Silvernome here with the second part of my Forces of Change: The Thousand Sons, including both versions of Ahriman, Sorcerers, Magnus the Red and Occult Terminators.

Since I have a large and slow Death Guard force, I wanted my Thousand Sons force to focus on speed. Every unit has wings, discs or can deep strike in. The idea is to zip around the board claiming objectives and blowing things up with their psychic destruction.

WIP: Stormcast Eternals Lord Relictor

April 20, 2018 - 11:00

I've wanted to paint this model for a while now but honestly, the amount of detail has been putting me off. The Lord Relictor is littered with amazing little intricate details like candles and bones. The sculpt is really layered too with segmented armour and lowing tapestries. The only way to paint a model like this is in sub-assemblies. Read on to see how I approached this. More after the jump

WIP: Adeptus Ministorum themed Imperial Knight

April 18, 2018 - 11:00

Hi all! Today I would like to show you my current project: An Imperial Knight of the Adeptus Ministorum. I used a small building from Morr's Garden and parts of the Imperial Sector structures to create a unique machine. I will intergrate Redemptor Kyrinov, an Acolyth and the Geminae Superior to realize my idea. Now it's time for the planned new Sisters of Battle!
What do you think and who else is waiting for some new Sororitas? Leave a comment below...

Review: The Eldar Collection by Jes Goodwin (Asuryani & Drukhari Sketchbooks)

April 15, 2018 - 11:00

Following up The Eldar Sketchbook, which was only available on Games Workshop store birthdays in limited quantities, we were now treated with The Eldar Collection, a two-volume tome containing the Asuryani (Craftworlds) and Drukhari (Dark Eldar) concept art by design legend Jes Goodwin. In this review, we check out the contents of both books, including the expanded sections in the Asuryani Sketchbook and surprises like Exodite and Ynnari artworks.

Showcase: Ultramarines Tactical Squad II

April 14, 2018 - 14:00

Here we have my second Tactical Ultramarines squad. I already brought this squad up to scratch in May 2017, so for his time, I only needed to change a few things. Find out more after the jump.

WIP: Shadespire Shadespire Steelheart's Champions Severin Steelheart

April 12, 2018 - 11:00

I'm enjoying the benefits of using a grip to paint with. The lack of paint rub on the edges of the model   means no more annoying touch ups. I've been making slow progress on this model but there isn't much more left to do. I need to edge highlight the yellow, paint the face and hair and pick out some of the ornaments in gold. After this model I just have one model left to paint to complete the Shadespire boxed game.

Showcase: Shadespire Steelheart's Champions Severin Steelheart by FruitBear

April 10, 2018 - 11:00

Hello everyone, this post will be different from my previous Nighthaunt posts with a little something to cut through the spookiness. With that I present to you Sevrin Steelheart from the Shadespire game. Like so many other painters here on TOP I really welcomed Shadespire with open arms, more if I had more arms. After seeing Lecoqadoodledo's Shadespire Stormcast, I was determined to start painting mine but didn't' get far as I only painted one.

Showcase: Ultramarines Primaris Intercessor

April 8, 2018 - 11:00



I've been so rubbish with this project. It's been such a slow burn army. I mean really slow! I've had the Dark Imperium set for nearly a year and I've only painted five models from the boxed game! You can see a couple more angles after the jump. More after the jump

Showcase: Retro Blood Bowl High Elves Team by Rich

April 7, 2018 - 11:00

Hi readers, Rich back again with some more goblin green bases. This time I present to you my recently finished and my first Blood Bowl Team, the Galadrieth Gladiators. I based the colour scheme on Games Workshops box art but I have simplified it a bit, using fewer colours particularly on the linemen to improve the teams overall feel of coherency, more after the jump.

April 1, 2018 - 12:18

Hello all! Back once again with another Nighthaunt post. It's my second one of this miniature and here you have it! It's the Cairn Wraith. As you can see I've gone with a turquoise and green scheme which is nothing out of what I usually do.

WIP: Imperial Knight Legio Custodes

March 29, 2018 - 11:00

Hi all! Some time ago I posted a first WIP of my Imperial Knight for the Legio Custodes (only the  lower half with the legs). Now that there are the new Custodes models out I found the time and motivation to continue working on this guy. So there are only the arms missing.

But what arms should I take? Can you help me out? Every option is eligible. Or should I wait for the revealed Castellan Knight to be released and try some of his arms? Leave a comment below and help me to choose these arms...
