Cheers guys, glad I can raise some form of emotion in you Moonpie! remember the classic line from Waterboy? "You can do EEEET" have a crack mate and show us!

and I had a crack at those Custodes and finished them off today! there's a few little 'painterly' things I would have liked to spend more time on but then i'd drive myself mad trying to do things that wouldn't matter most importantly they look frickin' sweet as a squad and really frickin' cool! I love painting gold so much! and red! and these guys have gold and red!!!! OMG!!!!

I hope Moods who I painted them for likes them and trusts me soon to do those 3 Custodes Dreadnoughts I know he's got hiding away

Sorry, not sorry for so many pics too!

Yeah, those really are something special. A real masterclass in simple-yet-effective schemes.

If I were to be incredibly nitpicky, I might suggest the power lances could do with just a bit more brightness right at the edge/tip, but that's possibly just the overall muted tones making them look a little dimmer than they are.

If I were to be nitpicky, that is. Because I'm not, because those are simply awesome!

As much as I dig on your beat to hell looking metallics you can produce, it certainly is a neat departure to see a "pristine" look on these Custodes. Well done.

I do appreciate the encouragement. I've been pumping out my own stuff. I'm with you on the trying not to drive myself mad bit. I've just been checking to see I didn't miss a part, making it pretty alright and moving on to the next on to the next.

Amazing paint work on those Custodes, Nerd. Youve certainly got that gold technique down!. I'll be painting up some Tzaangors soon, and I hope I can get the gold bits on their armor looking half as good.

I checked out your painting contest, interesting topic. I cant unsee the the photo offered for 3rd place though!

Keep up the great work!

Well this should let you know i'm well and truly alive and still kicking! lots of wip to show you on a bunch of really cool stuff.

I'll start with my own Howling Griffons, first up is my renovated Chapter Master, I've used the Termie Chaplain and removed his skull helmet, used the original arms I had planned (they're just tacked on) a nice book to top him off from a Libby and gave him a couple of Griffon bodyguards, i'd love to have them be part of the game so i'm not sure if they should be two extra attacks or two wounds?


Next a bit of prime time priming action! got my vehicles primed and ready to go! you'll notice on the close up that i've added liquid mask under the paint layer so I can have a nicely weathered army of battle hardened Howling Griffon tanks





got a little further on one of the tanks, a juicy little Predator!


and i've started playing around with the cannon and dozer blade for my Vindicator, I wanted to HG them up a bit so converted the demolisher cannon to have the Griffon head on it, it looks good and Griffony





assembled my captain and command squad! and started on the new torso for my Contemptor as well as re basing him with his legs ready for project Space Mortalis.





Got inspired to have a crack at some terrain so I grabbed a container i'd done previously and some Mantic barrels and left over decals and went to work! how do they look?




Got given a few Nurgle guys so I thought i'd try my hand at a Nerdfest style fast paintjob! my sort of plan is to slowly build and paint up enough to give to my dad to try and convince him to join us in a few games.



Got given a heap of GW bases and am going to use them on my HG's so I have clipped and primed them all ready for weathering the hell out of them! they should look great on the CUSTOM 3D PRINTED SPACE HULK/ZONE MORTALIS BOARD IM HAVING DONE!





and last little project is Whalemusic's Space Hulk Termies done as a lovely little Lamenters force! I think they're going to look awesome yellow!

Thanks guys, it's been a tough slog finding time and energy to update with a lot going on, but I feel very Zen finally showing you a bit of progress! :-) I'll probably move on the vehicles first so the liquid mask isn't sitting on them for weeks. The ZM/SH board I'll have a bit of a play around with and see what you think! any ideas where I can score a stencil for numbers from?

Thanks dudes! I got the bases from the guy I did the Eldar for, he spends ridiculous money because he power games and just gave me all the bases he had left over. Score for Damo!

And i'm sad to say the Skull helmet went bye bye! as it was sculpted in position I had to dremel the head out, I know it's a shame but duty calls. I need my barre head fix!

That's a fantastic update Damo. Very excited to see where those terminators go and that Nurgle marine is captivating. I think you got the tones of the yellows, browns and metallics just right.

Love what you did with the metal griffon head. The metallic sheen on it is beautiful. Looks like polished chrome.

WIP on my first HG tank hell yeah it's looking good, I wanted a weathered battle worn style with cleaner top half. I really enjoy reds and yellows when they come together and I think it looks striking done in the HG scheme, the whole army shall be getting this treatment







Started laying down paint on the new Chapter master!


I also got work on my test tile for Zone Hulk, I need some input with the wall sections, I've painted them green and washed with Agrax, but I'm trying to work out the best way to paint the details like the alcoves and details? it needs to be fairly fast to do and still look freakin' nuts. I don't want to go too decrepit but i'm keen to see any ideas people can pull up for me!

Fast painting for the wall details would be washes & a little dry brushing IMHO but you could go several ways. The SH figures look interesting, I will be watching those progress as I am a SH fan. The Chapter Master already looks really impressive as does the blade. The chipping/rust is truly excellent but it's easy to forget about the perfect subtle yellow & red gradient changes because the rust demands your attention at first. Can I also ask what shade of gold name/brand you used for the jetbikes? It looks great.

All those bases for free...I hate you:-)
