thats all my orks finished up now. ive still a ton in baggies somewhere but ive found i realy dont need anymore models painted, in tume i may add some of the grot big guns or another unit of mega nobz. All in all its been a fun little journey painting up this army. Time to move on, i will continue to add to this blog as i get into some new projects or armys. Currently ive just opend space hulk game and getting into the marines in it, going to go for a more time consuming methord of painting but it should yeild better results, plus theres not too many models in the box or indeed a marine army. will get some updates on when i get time

so this is where were at doing the marine secion of the box set. lots still to get threw, i do like the dead marine-hes now going to be a marker for games of 40k. ive been thinking of expanding the force to get a 1500 point army complited, thinking of all infantry then it changed to all terminators. It may play pants but i bet it will look good. Possible purchase could be the chapalin in termie armour along side a box of assault termies.

day off complited. quite happy with the results


Automatically Appended Next Post:


heres a little more WIP. i did notice that the flamer termie has the most purity seals on him, kind of ironic as hes setting things on fire. the one with the genestealer on is nearly done, ive just got to buy some new paints to do the stealer its self.
I did have a few sheets of cork board arrive today so should hopefully get them based soon and onto the finished section. ive since got a layer of red on the captain, bothing on the libby yet tho

ive had a little break from painting and plogging but im back once again. ive even got some new shinys in the form of more termies plus a chaplin in term armour, also ive got a few boxes of nurgle deamons tho you cant realy call them shiny. works progressing well with the remainder of the hulk force. ive finished the last marine just got him to base alongside getting a solid blue tone on the libby and a few areas starting to be blocked out with colours.

thats the last two marines painted and based up ready to game, either in 40k or indeed a game of space hulk. its not taken too long to paint up the set and im realy happy with the results, at some stage in the near future i would like to go over the brown purity seals with some highlight. idealy i could re do the gems a little better and im considering a slight change to the crux colouring for a greyer tone. possibly some highlights to the objective marker too......possibly
as for the rest of the nids in the box...on the to do list in around three projects time.
firstly ive got some more blood angels to build up and paint. i went for a finecast chaplin in terminator armour alongside a box of the newish blood angels terminator assault. a little project.
Marines do take me a little time so ive also opted for some nurgle deamons as i can do them quite quickly and its a variation to paint up, ive allready a small force, well probably a good sized unit so a couple of boxes of plauge beareres and some nurglings will be a welcome break.

ive dug out the other half of space hulk and figured the stealers need some love too. going with small batches so i dont need to slog threw them all at once. first days work, made bases and painted them up for the most part. early days. going for a classical themed colour scheme, something more garish than would ordinaraly be used on 40k models.


Automatically Appended Next Post:


nearly finished the blues, just a final highlight. ive done more models than i have pics so i should be having regular updates on this one. also i figured this colour scheme can be applied to larger models in a regular army if i decide to go that way with them.

first one is done

So im allontrack painting up this guy, in a day. ive tryed to cobble together a painting guide for anyone to use. first off its basic assembly and prime the model with halfords car primer, its better than a traditional black as the model finishes a few shades lighter, plus its loads cheaper. the base is a cork tile clued down then primed in regular chaos black spray


Automatically Appended Next Post:


Skin, kantor blue-i got with a couple of thin coats to not lose any detail.
Metal. bit harder this one, ive used tinbitz, an old gw paint. in order to make it duller and age it give it a coat of carobourg crimson shade. once this is dry waterdown either hawk turquoise or temple guard blue, the let it flow from the brush into the recess, gw makes a tecnical paint for this-ive tryed it and realy dislike it


Automatically Appended Next Post:


stage two. do a solid coat on the skulls.
the skin i only highlight certain points, allmost only whats on the upper part of a model keeping everything else darker in the recesses or where the creature naturaly shades it.
use the colours in the pics for these stages.


Automatically Appended Next Post:


Give the skulls a solid shade with gryphone sepia, the new earthshade works just fine too, its just i still have a drop of this to use up.
do edge highlights in the blue, once its dry give it a liberal shade of the purple, again this stage uses the colours in the pic


Automatically Appended Next Post:


re edge highlight in the blue followed by a solid base coat of the purple on the head hands and feet. once its dry use the lighter coloured purple to pick out raised areas, more so on the face


Automatically Appended Next Post:


to finish the skin add a waterdown coat of the emperours pink t theprevious highlights, once dry splosh on some more purple shade.
tounge, firstly use the darker colour-screamer then when its dry highlight with the lighter coloured pink, horror


Automatically Appended Next Post:
more to follow once i get it photographed

I've not been doing much in the way of plogging recently, I moved house and had a huge clear out of models. Most of my irks have gone now. I needed the cash and they just seemed to be everywhere. Also they never got played so we're a little wasted. I've decided to continue my nids and blood Angels, I'm painting slightly differently in regards to takeing more time and care on each figur. This seems to be going better as I'm not throwing out loads of money each month. I'm a little behind in uploads so will get on it asap. Also some projects did not get fully finished and are in store age at the moment. That's all my nids and half my Angrls

I'm really pissed off about the death of warhammer. Two lovely army's I have with no need to see the light of day again. With that in mind I decided to convert some of the new aos stuff. Here's a Chaplin, fairly easy conversion to do but very happy with the results
