Plenty on the go. Dread and SH2 Terminators are awesome models. On top of the LS, the Panthers have some sweet reinforcements coming.

Man, I adore the Venerable Dread kit...a classic. Glad you could get some building done during the Skype meetings, effectively you were getting paid to hobby...win-win!

And as for the football...the nation may well go mental on Sunday night.

Great to see the progress on all the elves, it will be magnificent to see them develop in such force!

The SMH termis look really great, have all of them still (and probably a lot longer) awaiting paint or building And Nurglings (like Grots) should be included in every kit, just because...

It’s a really cool kit, I love all of the names of famous battles on the armour, even if they are ultramarine ones! Sadly the football wasn’t to be and all of the none-sense after has left a bit of a sour taste for me. When will they learn?

Cheers Viterbi, I was admiring the elves on their shelf earlier today. I’m getting quite tempted to ditch the in between projects status and push on with them, but then I see all the other stuff I want to paint! Like those aces SMH minis… I wonder if/when Series 4 will drop?

So it’s been a little while, things have been mad busy, thankfully with lots of good things;a weekend at Silverstone for the F1 (it was a racing incident, but Lewis was always going to get a penalty with how the stewards have been this year), finally getting all of the doors fitted (my dad visited twice to help out) and getting the new lawn seeded (though we ended up letting our builders go first). I finally though got some hobby action in tonight.

I decided to crack on with the Land Speeder, getting most of the basecoats on and getting a Nuln wash over the Retributor, Purple and Leadbelcher. I also smoothed out the cockpit by mixing a drop of purple in to some dawnstone. It’s a school night, so I left it there.

I think she’s starting to come together, or at least the cockpit is.

Thanks for looking

You’ve got a lot of new units for the Panthers. Your golds are so smooth I may need a few pointers how to achieve that look. I’m a sucker for dreads can’t wait to see how he turns out.

Yeah, I’ve been on a bit of a building kick of late. As for the golds, it’s Retributor Armour, Nuln oil, bring back all the panels to Retributor, then a volumetric (ish) highlight of Liberator Gold with a follow up of Stormhost Silver. Then some bright lights to photo under to get more reflection ! . The dread is quite exciting!

They’re in the drawer awaiting priming I’m afraid, it might be a while until they emerge. The gold recipe is above. One extra, I do the volumetric by highlighting where the reflection of my lamps is visible, kinda cheating, but I like it!

Yeah, it’s one of the few perks! Building is about all I can manage though as painting takes too much concentration. I thought the purple would work well, kinda like the teal that the Russians use in their fighters.

That’s probably a sensible idea Steve, I’m already getting nervous about covering them and spraying the whole thing black! I might cry if it ruins the legs!

Sorry to disappoint Jazzy, I’m thinking he’ll be mostly black, though maybe the name plates will be gold. I’ll need to have a good think on that one. Maybe he could be from before the fall?

Cheers Viterbi. The droppers are a pain to sort out, but pretty good once you have. I still always put way too much paint on the palette though

So another weekend passes with not much time for hobby. We actually socialised on Saturday night, which was novel! I might also have convinced a couple of mates to give Blackstone Fortress a go, just need to arrange a date and time… should be easy with 7 kids between the 3 of us, we all have lots of spare time

Whilst watching another epic F1 GP (I so wish Alonso was in a front running car battling Hamilton every race) I managed to get a good bit done on the Land speeder. Got the Retributor done, the Liche purple, the black, the Leadbelcher too. I then decided to have a bit of fun with the details, getting some red and green dials mostly sorted. I just have the white dots and the scorpion green to do on the details.



I should be able to get the armour and purple highlights done next session so that I can mask the cockpit off, then pray and spray!

Thanks for looking and commenting!

I am loving those old school Blood Angels and even more those old 2nd edition Orks! Great memories there. Of course, you have finally done them justice. Mine, like most back in those days I assume, were painted pretty poorly. These guys look great. Also looking forward to seeing this Land Speeder come together. Another classic model with good memories.

Hi Riddle, I’m glad you like the Blood Angels and Orks. I think it’s fair to say that the 2nd Ed BAs and Terminators are what got me hooked on Warhammer. The painting on some models was pretty horrific though! Hopefully the Land Speeder comes together to your liking too!

Cheers youwashock… let’s hope when I put the top on and hit it with some black spray I don’t ruin it!
Warboss_Waaazag wrote:I really like the look of this army. Strong, original paint scheme. Good details on the center console.

Thanks Waaazag, I’m glad you like them! They were inspired by ListenToMeWarriors’ Celestial Lions, but I fancied doing something different. The Chapter icon came about after a fellow dakkanaut pointed me towards college football team logos. Another even sculpted me the fancy version of the icon!

So Mrs gobert was out for some culture (ballet and a string quartet in a museum no less!) tonight so I indulged my geek tendencies with a painting session with Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers on in the background. I mainly focussed on the armour highlights for the marines getting them ready to be masked off for the spraying black or the hull. I did however indulge in a bit of detail work, adding a readout to the dial as though it was a radar screen and highlighting the green buttons too.

I finished off the session adding the top to the speeder, filling gaps, adding the crew served weapon mount and steps. This was made a bit trickier by having to mask off the cockpit before adding the top section. Still it went together ok and is now ready for a bit of a spray.


I completely forgot fo take photos of the cockpit, so hopefully the spray doesn’t ruin it!

Thanks Olthannon, Royalty was certainly a theme I was after.

So hobbytime seems to be coming like buses (nothing for ages the. 2 come at once!) with another session tonight. Earlier in the week I decided I wanted some iconography on the Land Speeder, so I printed a few 8mm sized chapter symbols. I got to sticking them on, but had to shave off the Aquila at the front as the chapter symbol was too crowded. A fresh blade made short work of it and a bit of filing neatened things up. I also slapped one on each side too, sticking one down backwards. In hindsight I should’ve flipped it on the computer as the finish isn’t great, I still might do. I then took her outside for some black primer.

Whilst waiting for the primer to dry I decided fo get on with my High Elves project, spending most of The Return of the King painting all of their skin with the old GW Bronzed Flesh. Most took 2 coats and my fingers were sore by the end from holding the brush! Here’s how they look now (including adding a couple of bits of blue wash that I’d missed on 3 of them!

I’m sure I’ll have missed an ear or two, but they’re coming together slowly. Having finished the archers I couldn’t face the Spearmen, so instead I checked on the Speeder, here’s what I saw post masking tape removal:



I’m pretty chuffed! No major spraying of painted bits. But most importantly those legs and consoles are looking clean! It also looks like the gap filling and Chapter symbol were successful too. I’ll be back to the outside of the Speeder next time.

Speeder console is fancy and a nice touch. I'm looking forward to seeing those archers at the ready next to your spears. What do you think of that GreenStuffWorld brush with the finger grip on it? Does it work well for you? I tend to rotate my brushes a lot so I think I wouldn't like it, but I've never tried one of those.

Cheers CaptainWaffle, the details have been fun on the speeder so far. The GSW brushes are pretty nice. the grips have changed how I hold the brush, further away from the tip and it seems fo be for the better. Quite counterintuitively I seem to have better positional control with holding them higher. That could just be the better bristles though! If you mean switching between brushes, I’ve not had a problem swapping back to normal handles. I sometimes rotate as in spin the brushes the triangles limit you to 3 positioned, but I’m ok with that too.

That would look good, but I’m keen to get them done and if the Lord of the Rings trilogy taught me anything it’s that Elves are very coordinated

No progress this week but i forgot to post pics from last weekend. Youngest gobert went to a birthday party (not done those in a while!) and Eldest gobert asked to paint some mini guys together. Who was I to deny my offspring? Here’s the fruit of her labours;

The one on the right she did a while back, the blood splattered one in the middle was this sessions efforts and the one on the left had only just started when we decided to play Space Marine Adventures. I quite like the colour scheme, she has a good eye for them I think. We won the final level of the game, though Brother Frostclaw didn’t manage to escape!

I also did a little painting getting some gold on to the Land Speeder. There’s not as much panel trim as on the bikes so I improvised. The 3D printed chapter icons also got some gold too as did the anti-grav bumper;



I’m keen to get progressing but we have family staying this weekend and the next 2 as well, so it’s going to be limited. If anyone has any more ideas what panels/trim could turn gold I’m all ears, noting there recessed bits at the front will be purple and probably the doors or wing flaps. Anyway, thanks for looking!

It is hard to say no to the offspring when it comes to painting or playing. The symbol looks great on the speeder.
