Ta chaps.

@Zambro: Yep, Shadespire would definitely be a candidate when I get some time for gaming, trouble is that I'm not a massive fan of any of the warbands other than the skellies; Stormcast don't do much for me, the Khorne guys are just like the other Khorne guys I have dozens of and the Orruks I just don't like the style. That said, the Skaven crew look neat and I'm looking forward to the Fyreslayers, so there may be more Shadespire here in future.

But that is then and this is now! First mini of 2018 is a-go! And yes, it's another bloody Space Marine. But this is also an example of what I mentioned above about painting to a very specific theme and feel. Here, I wanted to capture a really bleak and muted tone (even more than my usual style), a Marine that's been in full survival mode for a long, long time and is unrecognisable as the proud warrior he once was. Fallout meets Logan meets 40k, odd as that sounds!


Yes, the name is a dreadful pun. No, I don't feel bad about it!

Ta for looking, any thoughts welcome!

Can't help it if you've got a dissertation to do, I'd rather focus on that then crank out minis to show us folk on here

Nice summary of 2017! It's funny how your slow year model count is almost double my best year model count! Your first model of 2018 is really creative and awesome, and the name you picked is actually a clever pun IMO.

Hoping your college stuff goes well, and that you can actually get a few games in 2018.

My armies (re-counted and updated on 12/01/17, including usual wargear options):
Dark Angels: ~10300 | Space Marines (Blood Ravens and others): ~1000 | Space Wolves: ~1500
Inquisition: ~200 | Officio Assassinorum: ~500 | Imperial Knights: ~Coming soon!
Tau Empire: ~5700 | Chaos Space Marines (various legions): ~7700 | Death Guard: ~1900 | Chaos Daemons (all types): ~2300

Just catching up and an interesting retrospective for the previous year. Especially when it comes to being more discerning with choices of stuff to paint. Definitely relate to that one.

Also, I too share your love for the stunning new skelly model it really is a fantastic sculpt (which you've done excellent justice!). Been eyeing it up for a Kearl conversion actually...

Cheers all!

More new stuff, this time a model built from Anvil's new Dress Uniform range in the style of GW's Vostroyan Firstborn that the new parts allow a fairly accurate recreation of. This is just a test paint for the squad, but I think so far so good.


Any thoughts welcome, thanks for looking!

He has a bugle? That rules.

Yep. I was going to give him the slung rifle and an empty hand, but the bugle was too cool a part not to use in the end.

And while I'm here, a quick preview of the rest of the squad, these minis are top notch even by Anvil's always-excellent standards and the Regiments range is so extensive now that if you're looking for a modern take on any of the old-school GW Guard regiments then they should be your first port of call.


These guys are done as Vostroyans, but with the parts Anvil offer you could easily recreate DKoK, Steel Legion, Praetorians, Mordian Iron Guard, Valhallan Ice Warriors, Catachans... Basically any kind of Guard regiment you can think of.
