Hello Dakka!

NOTE: My images are quite large, its a bit easier to view if you zoom the browser window out a little, Hold CTRL and scroll your mouse wheel back to do this, Hold CTRL and scroll forward to set it back to normal when your done.

I've finally decided to start my own P&M Blog. I started wargaming when I was quite young and only got back into it about a year and half ago. When I was younger I remember painting feeling like a chore and hated it. I was expecting to feel the same when when I started up again, thinking I would focus mainly on the gaming side of things. This has not been the case however, I'm absolutely loving the painting side of the hobby, in fact I think I have a slight addiction. In this past year and a half I've tried to cram as much practice with different techniques, methods and guides from all across the forums, youtube and my local game stores as I possibly could in an effort to catch up on the years of painting I missed.

I consider myself lucky that when I started up again I did a fair bit of research into getting myself set up properly. I stumbled on some fantastic forum advice and youtube clips that pointed me in the right direction early on. My first few purchases were an Airbrush Kit, Compressor and small Vallejo Air Paint set, something I have never regretted and to this day stands as my most useful purchase to date. I supplemented my airbrush setup with the Vallejo Paint Set and a small range of GW paints, washes and primers.


Anyway onto some pictures. Ill go through each 40k army I've painted over the last 20 months one by one as I photograph and upload the pictures. I'll then add WIP Pics as I paint new units for each force.

Page 1: Here is my first 40k army, my Blood Angels. I hope you enjoy, the camera made them look a bit more glossy than the are in real life which is a shame but I don't have very good photography skill so this is the best I can do sorry.

Army # 2.

Metallic Ultramarines. I always wanted to start an Ultramarine army but found the standard GW paint scheme very boring. I came across some Tamiya Metallic Blue paint at my FLGS and it gave me a good excuse to start an army up. I post on Dakka for some feedback to some test minis and people seemed to think they were a little too bright, verging on chaos looking. With this in mind I progressed with a bit of a toned down blue to the scheme bringing it a bit closer to the Classic Ultramarine blue while still staying noticeably metallic. I bought most of this army off ebay, or through second hand goods/trades with other people, stripped all the minis and started from scratch.

The army is loosley based of Cato's 2nd Company Ultramarine's, I have name the The Knights of Ultramar.

Anyway here are the Pics, some of the latter ones are WIP pics that I'll update with the finished product as I go. Hope you enjoy!

Devastator Squad:

This is the stuff I'm working towards completing for this army. There is a drop pod, a second tactical squad with a converted Lascannon heavy weapon, Cato Sicarus himself and the rest of his command squad.

Simply amazing man!

When I saw your Metallic Ultramarine scheme before I thought it was really nice... but now I think it's just awesome.

Seeing your army painted up like that made me seriously consider stripping my Ultramarines and re-painting them your way.

At the very least I'll have to paint up a small squad like that!

Your Blood Angels and Ogres are great too!
You really nailed that fire effect on that fire belly.
You defiantly have a nice unique painting style, I love it!

Un-Drilled barrels on some of your marines would be my only nitpickings.

SUBSCRIBED!

Guilliman and the Ultramarines are like Manchester United, everyone hates them because they are so awesome!

Haha thanks Flying!

Yeah my Blood Angels don't have many of the barrels drilled out at all. Wasn't something that I realised I should be doing at the time. I'll go back and touch them all up one day.

Anyway, I still have my IG, Ork, Legion of Everblight and Scenery Projects to come. I'll take some more snaps tonight and get one of the armies up.

#4 Imperial Guard

This army was part of a Tournament that my mates and I had. It involved 6 of us starting at 500 points and escalating slowly each week. I started a new army for it as I wanted to try a dipping project. Every infantry miniature in the army was dipped but the commissar and the WIP pic of Creed. The vehicles are just airbrushed with vallejo green and hand detailed. As you can see my army was very infantry heavy and I suffered some of the worse defeats I've ever had it was till a fun campaign though.

Anyway here are the pics of the 501st Cadian Infantry Company:

Vendetta; I still have to buy some lascannons to put on this guy.
