Found my Typhus model from a few months back that i had gotten from a friend. Never thought i would get around to painting him, so i did last night as a fun speed paint. I used mostly Vallejo and P3 on him with a little GW mixed in. Here is my 2 and a half hour speed paint of Typhus.

Firstly, I'd like to say- Congratulations with the High school graduation!

Moving swiftly on... I have really come to love your Imperial Guard colour scheme! It works well, and is very effective!
The GS work is a nice touch and adds a lot of character.
Good luck in any future projects!

Finished my Brits up today, my entire 6th paratroopers company and some of their support options whether it be the DD armored platoon or my Cromwell MK IV unit, here is the finished product.

It feels nice though to finish the entire thing, was a good feeling to be done!

It took roughly 3 days worth of work, a platoon a day and the tanks were easily finished within an hour and a half for them all.

Some update as to where I have been. The past three weeks have been spent assembling my new bathroom in my upstairs. I havent had gak all time to paint anything let alone have any kind of social life those weeks. I had also been working on getting my college schedule in order as well for the first Fall semester in a few weeks.

It was my birthday on Friday, after getting all of my college stuff sorted out I took a long break from painting as i felt that i was going no where with it so I just stopped plain and simple. My weekend was fun. Went to a convention with one of my friends on Saturday after some work at my house. Spent almost the entire day out having fun.

Here is a model I got for the game War Gods of Aegyptus, I chose Anubis as he is my favorite god and i really do like the models. I will be returning to updating this blog regularly as my schedule becomes concrete and I actually have time to paint my own stuff.

Well, its been a while again as i haven't really posted 40k stuff of my own in a while, here is what I've got going on. I picked up the new box set for 40k and the cultists are hands down my favorite part of it and they will fit well with my cultists from Forgeworld though these ones didn't cost an arm and a leg as I split the box with a friend of mine.

Here are some of the cultists I worked on today. So much fun to work on.

Now with the new starter box being so good I have decided to get back to chaos though slowly and it will mostly be a guard detachment as a slaneesh cult and my marines will be that of the flawless host. I am very excited to paint up new chaos stuff in hopes that it will be a lot better then my previous chaos army.

Worked on creating my Slaneesh Champion for an upcoming story campaign for my local store. I used the new cultist champion as the basis because ive got three of them and happy I converted him using gray stuff and a lot of spare bits.

Here he is.

I've really gotten into building up my cult troops and militia for my other guard army. I put in a lot of time trying to make the cultists I've got into an interesting unit. I want them to have a lot of character. It's nice to have the cultists because they compliment my vraks renegades I had for so long.

I plan of finishing them as the bulk of my guard and having them ready for an upcoming campaign I'm playing in. It will be fun fielding a true chaos army of militia and cultists.

Focus seems to be something I couldn't do for the past few months, but now that I am getting my life in order and my own stuff organized, I decided to get into a one army sort of deal with 40k. I traded off my marines and sold off my orks and now I am left with over 10k in imperial guard, both renegade and Imperial.

Being that I was in a more colorful mood aside from my regular drabs, I went into even more of a pastel pallet. Much of what I am doing now is bright and colorful. I think my armies needed a pick me up in their mood. Makes me feel better when I put a crazy assorted militia onto the table and people go, hey look at all the guardsmen who look different from one another and have a lot of detail, what a crazy guy!

Here is the stuff I have been working on for the past few months, thanks to the dark vengeance box release and some good trades and splits I now have over 80 something cultists in my cult army.

Here is some of the stuff I have been doing, experimenting with new flesh tones, adding custom plasticard armor which is a new thing for me and is amazing to work with. I have been customizing weapons as well. One of my militiamen is carrying a plasma fusilier. A weapon I read about when looking up the Hrud.

This army will be able to be played with all the imperial guard dexes and supplemental when I am finished except for the Krieg one of course though, as they are for another time.

Now to some pictures!

It is time to turn this thread over to chaos as that is really what I have been working on. Its been a few weeks worth of work and I am finally happy with it too. Being that I have had a rough few weeks and my Uncle and my Grandmother passing, its been hard for me to work on my stuff. Though they have passed and it has been hard I have used some of this grieving time to occupy myself with painting to help myself cope.

Here is what i finished last night, the Sons of the Pyre Chaos Clan. The whole army for me will be made up of a bunch of different Cult Warbands and clans from the wastes. I still have to decide on what planet they come from...

Here though, take these pictures!

I really would like critique too it would be most beneficial.

I really like the way you've handled your guard. It's an excellent color scheme, well executed. Kind of reminds me of the way some of my best eldar figures look, which were painted long ago but with great care. I like the Typhus figure a lot, but I think he would benefit from some kind of contrast within the color scheme. I love the browns and greens, wouldn't change that at all... but it needs something to make it pop a bit. Perhaps something on the weapon. The rust color is great, but some other kind of corrosion, some other color... would help make the figure stand out & be memorable.

Great job all-round!

Update of the day is from my main idea for this chaos battle group.

-Have a group of clans depending on weapons and equipment.
-For example, I want my army to be made up of a lot of little chaos war clans and marauder groups who aren't necessarily chaos.
-The Sons of the Pyre are my main battle group, hence the orange uniforms. Each group will specialize in specific roles for my army. The Sons are the main shooting group for my army and make up the bulk of the shooting group. Their only real support roles for the army are their use of auto cannons. The war band has raided several large storehouses for heavy weapons.

-The Done Sharks (Yellow troopers)

Their main purpose in my army is the assault unit with all close combat roles. They employ Ogryns for their forces and are low on the shooting end. They also employ Chimeras and mortar teams for cover fire. Lots of home made flamers and shotguns.

-Heroks Bruisers (Purple)

The unit is a high tech band of marauders and techno barbarians. The Bruisers specialize in special weapons. They buy weapons and sell them on the black market so they have access to some special equipment.
-Plasma guns and all that.

Xarax Looters (Red and Dark Gray)

-Tanks and infiltrating troopers.

Timbera's Riders (Black armor and green cloth and emblems.)

-Cavalry and fast attack.
-Also has a good command structure for outflanking units. Specialize in melta weapons too.

That is my plan and emblems for each war band will follow. I just need some time to draw them up on my tablet and i will throw them up for you all to see.

Here is some of the stuff i was working on today.

Also going to swap out the head on my War-band leader too, not liking it. I have a better idea for it too.

Played a theme match tonight at my local store, it was a lot of fun. It was a space marine special force going in to take out a chaos cult in a desert town. It went well too because we had 3 sets of tokens to represent the possible spots my chaos could appear out of. I also played an assault on a castle match too which was a lot of fun too. Nothing is more fun then a theme game. I took worker rabble in my list too for the sake of themes.

I got a box of CSM's last night after looking through my chaos guard entry from the Vraks book, i forgot i could have a few squads of them in my list as well as.

Go figure I chose the Pyre, an orange CSM warband go figure. I am happy with this choice though as I mostly paint with Orange anyways so this is good. Gives me an incentive to get back into my Chaos Marines slowly.

I also gray stuffed bolter silencers and drum magazines too. Just for fun and the fact that my friend was making some custom regular space marines too.
