Quite a bit more progress on my Angaran Chronicles minis and a few odd things here and there. Mostly finished Emilia in werewolf form, she was pretty easy painted her brown and then dry-brushed her with terminus stone which looked quite good. Better than I anticipated, trying to make her have a theme with the blonde haired Emilia when in human form.

Finished priming my zone mortalis 32mm bases and the scarabs which arrived from ebay, both with leadbelcher. Put wash on them and dry brushed the bases. Maybe a few other things, but can't remember.

My story! Secret War
After his organisation is hired to hunt down an influential gang leader on the Hive world, Omnartus. Attelus Kaltos is embroiled deeper into the complex world of the Assassin. This is the job which will change him, for better or for worse. Forevermore. Chapter 1.

The Angaran Chronicles: Hamar Noir. After coming back from a dangerous mission which left his friend and partner, the werewolf: Emilia in a coma. Anargrin is sent on another mission: to hunt down a rogue vampire. A rogue vampire with no consistent modus operandi and who is exceedingly good at hiding its tracks. So much so even the veteran Anargrin is forced into desperate speculation. But worst of all: drive him into desperate measures. Measures which drives Anargrin to wonder; does the ends, justify the means?

Finished the scarabs that I primed a few days ago and almost finished my new Hero Forge version of Marcel Torris from Secret War, he's far better than the version I converted from the Imperial Guardsman box set.

A bit more work on my Darrance from Secret War mini as well, due to him being resin so nicely detailed, so edge highlighting his armoured bodyglove was quite fun.

My mini of Jelcine from The Angaran Chronicles arrived today (her and a mini of the villain of the 1st novel Kalthasin, too) So I began painting her today as I finally was able to paint all five of my main characters. Here are some photos.

From left to right it's Jelcine, Emilia (also in werewolf form), Anargrin, Raleas and Emilia. They're painted but not quite completed, I'm not too happy with Raleas as she looks too intense, which fits with her character but still lol. Looking forward to playing my TT Skirmish game with them sooner or later.

Not much; I went back to painting my Saderth Darrance from Secret War mini for my new Space Station Zero campaign. I finished him practically, so I began my new Karmen Kons mini and Adelana Helgen mini. Soon I'll have a 'current canon' Secret War crew to play with Zone Mortalis bases, so looking forward to that!

I picked up a dubious quality resin cast "Deimos" rhino from a 2nd hand stall at a local con a month and a bit back.

It was only after I got home that I realised that it was missing a few bits (which is on me for not fully checking the contents before paying for it). I was fine with the price, and basic modelling skills are something I have, so shortfalls can be made up for.

No exhaust stacks, no rails, missing one running board and a piece of track.

So, since the Deimos was released as a way to capture the zeitgeist of nostalgia for the RT40k rhino kit, I figured I'd try to properly retro-fy this beast into something a little older looking.



New exhaust stacks. Not the hybrid angular/round of the actual one, more the half-round stacks of the original.

Running board replaced and textured with some spare mesh.

Track pieces replaced/covered over with plating.

HAND rails added to both sides (because they were supposed to be there, regardless of how often they would break off.

and lastly, the headlights. Now, I know the original rhino model only had twin double headlights (no turn signals) but I decided to add those anyway).



I don't play the current version of 40k (I'll get a 5th ed game in every few months), and the only marines I have left are my Grey Knights ... So I might just paint it up to suit them. When/if it ever stops raining long enough.


I'm OVER 50 (and so far over everyone's BS, too).
Old enough to know better, young enough to not give a ****.

That is not dead which can eternal lie ...

... and yet, with strange aeons, even death may die.

@chromedog, loving the Lovecraft quote in your signature.

Uhh, back OT, I wasn't feeling well today, so I slept through quite a lot of it, but I still managed to paint Adelana and Karmen, almost finishing both of them. I'm slowly practising skin painting by layering and am happy with them both now, I frigged up Adelana's face a bit, but went back and fixed her. Then I began painting a new version of Attelus and I am very, very happy with him so far, especially his face. Really looking forward to having my new Space Station Zero crew finished!

@Kanluwen, nice! Keep up the great work; looking forward to seeing him finished.

Hmm, not too happy with Attelus. Now I look at him from another angle and closer to the light. His face is a bit lumpy, and I'm pretty sure it's because I didn't use fresh paint. It is a shame; I've been trying to fix it until now; I thought his face was one of the best I've painted so far. So, lesson learned will make sure to use new paint on faces from now on.

This evening after dinner I set about re-habbing a collection of Bone Reaper Cavalry I picked up crazy dirt cheap back in the summer.
Reattaching parts, fixing a few broken lances, trimming off sprue nubs (made harder as the previous owner just slapped unpainted models together....), & base coating anything not already (poorly) painted.

Fortunately the (poorly) painted stuff had no sprue nubs.

I’ve been working on a Skitarius Vanguard that I’m painting as I assemble (painting the major pieces separately then assembling it) and I’m finding it’s far more satisfying than assembling and then painting one. It might be that painting the inside of cloak was easier, or that I don’t have to deal with painting around the arms, but so far it’s been a blast.

I just completed challenge four today for Space Station Zero and had quite a lot of fun. In it, there's a gas leak, so you have to get to a vent to turn it on to get the gas out, I also have some drones, which I used Necron Scarabs I bought off eBay as.

I had Attelus sprint forward to activate the vent as he's got fly and a movement of six. This made him draw the attention of the drones, which I designed him for as a "dodge tank." He performed very well as they came after him but couldn't hurt him; he even damaged one back with the CQC rules. As Torris Adelana and Karmen supported him with their guns. It allowed me to test out the cover rules as the scarabs were in cover quite a lot, and it seemed simple and easy to use. Was fun. None of my characters took any damage, even from the leak. I took the Edge "Natural Brutes", and I'm glad I did as it's helped a lot. I qualify it as them wearing protective gear (or, for Attelus, his enhancement and wraithbone skeleton) And being very experienced Throne Agents. I'm playing 25 by 25 instead of 22 by 30, so I've had to adapt a bit.

The Vampirella statue and another Attelus mini arrived today alongside the Samus Aran, Morrigan from Darksiders statues and the Faye Valentine mini I ordered a while back.

I began on Vampirella because I'm giving her to my dad for his birthday, and assembling her...hasn't been fun. The woman who 3d printed it for me warned me she'd have gaps, and boy, oh boy, she wasn't kidding. Wish I had some sprue goo or liquid green stuff. I then assembled Samus, and she was a breeze. Really loving her statue so far!

First, I tried out my new airbrush (a wireless one), priming a couple of minis with airbrush primer. It was actually quite fun. I then began painting my Vampirella statue for my dad, and I am very happy with her so far!

Spoiler:












If anyone is wondering why the band on her right arm is funny. I had to green stuff it as there was a big gap between the arm and shoulder. Then I accidentally got way too much super glue on when sticking it on, so I green stuffed over that, and my green stuff isn't good, lol

I practically finished Vampirella and am quite happy with her now. Had to green stuff the hell out of her base to fill the gaps, so hoping it'll dry by the morning. I've learned a lot while working on her.

I also primed some more minis, including my Faye Valentine; not sure how I'm going to replicate her colours, especially her gold clothing lol
