And the tradition goes on, as I post here what doesn't jusfity its own thread (whatever the reasons: an army too small, a single model, etc...).
Speaking of tradition, beware, the migthy THUNDER KNIGHTS !!!
The very first army I ever painted, and didnt show here (for a reason ! ). But today I decided, if you are courageous enough to watch, to bless you with this sight:
So those guys were painted when I was I would say 15 ? About 10 years ago, except the veterans (sternguard and vanguard) who were the last units added a few years ago, before or at the same time as my Imperial Guard so around 5 years, when I started to feel comfortable with a brush.
Be kind, those guys are veterans of countless campaigns throughout the editions and even won some of their battles (they have a great tendency to get draws) !
At this time I knew about washes, but I was SUPER SCARED of doing in fear of ruinning my models
The terminator librarian was painted this year though.
You can see I runned out of snow during the making of this army, but I am willing to finally base them all correctly after quarantine. But that's all: I want to keep them like this, to remember.
They are a gaming army anyway (I mean, they were until primaris finally arrived in my local meta this year) so it doesn't really matter that they are aren't up to my today ' standards.
I forgot the drop pods and the non finished units (a stormraven, three drop pods (very important units !) and a devastator squad) but the main is here !
This is it ! Feel free to share your old models too, we have all been through this !

Deep snow bases are easy to retrofit to existing models. For years (decades?) I just had my Ultras on plain black bases. Sometime around 6th I undertook the great project to base them all. Some tufts, rocks, and a bunch of glue and flock later, they are all done. I started with a tiny packet from the GW winter kit, but moved on to a giant thing of Woodland Scenics, and army painter tufts.
Ok so I switched to Assassinorum: Execution Force, to stay in the "boxed games" theme, as Space Hulk is super long to paint and I wanted to advance quicly. I decided to do some fast painting using mainly Contrast paints. I will change the bases to Necromunda bases, one day, as the cultists are usable in this game. A fourth gang !
Thanks the Throne I don't paint like that since I'm out of high school but fast paint is fast paint and the Constrast didn't really work on them, apparently.
They remind me of my teenage years haha
Those cultists look great, they’re really cool models and contrast works well on them. I’ve not tried contrast yet myself, but they seem hit and miss on marines. The sorcerer looks pretty cool, so I guess it’s something to do with big smooth surfaces? Still painted minis are painted minis!
Goberts Gubbins - P&M Blog, started with Oldhammer, often Blackstone Fortress and mini-Marines, Indomitus soon... hopefully!
Hello there !
I have been away from 40k in all its forms for some months but I'm back.
So, space hulks terminators take a lot more time that I hoped, but it's in progress.
Here are the 4 first painted models:
Sergeant Lorenzo was painted I think 2 or 3 years ago and I was not satisfied, that's why I waited until this year to begin painting the others and this is why he is a bit different from the rest of the terminators.
Enjoy and as always, feel free to comment !
So here we are, finally: the full squad is painted !
It took a lot of time as I was following the WD33 tutorial with double highlight (even though it doesn't necessarily shows in the pictures). I'm really happy with them and I hope you will enjoy them too:
EDIT: and here we have brother librarian Calistarius himself !

It took time, but I'm happy with how they turned out !
And now for the last models of my Space Hulk boxset (I can't believe I actually finished it ! ):
(The gold stain on the helmet has been corrected since I took the picture)
I decided to paint his throne the same way as Calistarius' base, black and golden, simple. But I used a bright varnish on the black areas (might not have dried yet at the time I write this) in order to bring some highlights and represent something like ebony.
Now is time to rest after this big project, and soon a full painted Space Hulk campaign will happen !
