WIP: Ultramarines Assault Squad #5

September 20, 2017 - 11:00

Another update on my Assault Squad. Slowest squad reworking ever. But I hardly find time to paint at the moment. Nevertheless, I'll grind through, only one more model after this batch. The two models with the flamethrowers are almost complete (apart from bases and transfers), while the Sergeant is about half-way done. Fun fact: It's probably the first plasma pistol I paint in almost 20 years of hobbying #just8theditionthings. How are your projects coming along?

Chat: No point crying over spilt paint

September 19, 2017 - 11:00

I joined the unenviable club of spilt wash at the weekend. I'm an optimist, I've aways considered my paint pots half full and not half empty so I decided to turn this "tragedy" into a positive. See what I came up after the jump. More after the jump

Showcase: Death Guard Plague Marine

September 18, 2017 - 11:00

Hi all! The newest model for my Death Guard Armies on Parade project is this "easy to build" Plague Marine. I tried an alternate colour scheme mainly using spray cans from GW and some washes (of course there were some details to pick out, too). The model is much darker then the ones I painted before. I wanted to show that there is a variety of colours within the Death Guard, depending on how far the individual rotting has come along.
What do think about this colour scheme? Let me know in the comment section...

Showcase: Deathrattle Wight King by Lecoqadoodledo

September 17, 2017 - 11:00

Hi guys, Lecoqadoodledo back with a miniature I worked on recently between a few other projects I’ve been prepping. I painted this Wight King as a gift for fellow Tale of Painters guest blogger FruitBear, and I’m very happy with how it turned out. I got to try out a couple of new things on this one, and refine some other techniques.

Showcase: Ork Morkanaut by ComradeQuiche

September 14, 2017 - 11:00

Comrade Quiche here with another Dread Mob update! This was actually the very first Dread Mob model (and Ork model for that matter) that I painted. I decided that since it was so huge I really wanted to go with a somewhat bright paint scheme. I thought that a Bad Moons paint job would give it just the right look. Since they are a rich klan, they should be able to afford one of these!

Showcase: Adeptus Mechanicus Kataphon Breachers by ComradeQuiche

September 10, 2017 - 11:00

Comrade Quiche here with a quick Ad Mech update. Today I have photos of my Kataphron Breachers. The weapons are magnetized onto the arm stumps, so I can swap out the guns to make them Kataphron Destroyers. I gave them the Heavy Grav Cannons as I really liked the way the barrels looked.

Showcase: Scythes of the Emperor Primaris Reivers by Lecoqadoodledo

September 8, 2017 - 11:00

Hello everyone! I’m back with Reivers from First Strike that I finished a month or so ago, with the refined scheme from the test Scythes of the Emperor Primaris I posted up a while back. This is definitely the finalised scheme, and I really enjoyed painting it. Not to mention these Reiver sculpts are incredible.

WIP: Ultramarines Assault Squad #4

September 5, 2017 - 11:00

Batch two is complete, next up is the guy with the flamer on the right. His arms and weapon come from the Sternguard sprue to add some variety to the squad. Also, check out the Marine with the bionic head and arm, he'll be the squad's corporeal, leading the second combat squad. Three and a half more models to go, stay tuned.

Showcase: Hallowed Knights Stormcast Eternal Liberators by FruitBear

September 3, 2017 - 11:00

Hello everyone, it's been quite a while since I've posted on here as this years been one busy and hectic year so far. Been doing painting here and there but my pace has been really slow. Lucky I'm still able to knock out some miniatures here and there. Without further ado here are my Stormcast Eternal Liberators from the Steel Souls warrior chamber of the Hallowed Knights storm host.

Showcase: Army of the Imperium Commanders

September 2, 2017 - 11:00


This group shot makes me happy. It's awesome to see a lot of my characters all in one place and although they're all from different factions I'm really pleased with how uniformed they all are with all the different colours painted the same way across all the models. I think I'd like to get a Deathwatch Grandmaster next. After the jump I ramble on about the "worst article ever".
