Truly magnificent. And so important that your hair looks good shooting from far far away, so they called the Point Break Stylists. Just kidding about, they really look the business, the cloaks are superb, and really match the theme well.

Really brilliant, nerdfest! The colours - even the metal - tie together so well... the cloaks look like they belong in the base’s environment and are beautifully painted. Let the shoosting begin!

Thanks guys, it was a bit of fun making them look a little more camouflage but still marines from the Minotaurs chapter.

I have just built a marine to paint as an Excorcist since I have a long arching goal to paint each chapter who was part of the Badab War and it gives me a model to do a red video tutorial :-)

I also found a old marine primed desert yellow so I can do a yellow tutorial as well. and I started assembling a Christmas present for my Neice i'll grab some pics this arvo.

Beautiful work on the snipers Nerdy. Always have been some of my favorite sculpts. Nothing fancy about them, but I like them all the same.

I got a little bit more done on the two Chaplains, one for Whaley and my own for my Mino's trying to get beaten black armour isn't a real easy task! so while it doesn't look like much progression hopefully once the brighter colours are done like the bone and reds it will look decent enough!

so here's Whaleys Chaplain first up. (Whaley do you want the stripe on his shoulder to be red or yellow?)




and my own Chaplain to lead my Assault Squad.



I mentioned I was building a model for my niece for a Christmas present for her and I wanted something feminine but not too sexual or too dark since she's only 8 I decided on the Yvraine? model as a warrior elf princess (that's how i'll describe her) I started by getting the basics done on the base for her, sort of a glade i'm hoping for with a small pool and I'll add some small flowers from the scenic companies to make it look pretty not really much progress on her except the base colours and a wash mainly, the pale gold has been worked on but I'll touch it up after the skin in case I get any on the parts.

Last of the old pics I found! not that old though I wish I had the FW Admech pics or something cool, but here's Asterion Moloc for my Mino's






So i'm working on Whaley's Chaplain still and also a few more Mino's which I'll update soon as I get time, I'm sorry i've been so quiet it's not by choice, my new job has a steep learning curve and mentally exhausting but still extremely rewarding and i'm finding my feet as far as my painting time and hobby goes. Please don't give up on me i'm not going to disappear

I like what you've done with Yvrainne, I almost think that model works better with the fantasy aesthetic you're going for than the sci-fi one (though personally I'd swap the sword out for one without the power pack just to really sell it).

Good to see Asterion again, that is such a badass paintjob.

Chaplain love today! 2 models, both Enkomi from the Minotaurs Chapter but both slightly different, my own slightly converted to lead my assault squad and Whaley's version as he should be I struggle with black since I don't have a specific way I can turn to to paint it, so I sort of mixed a bit of metals through it and used scratches as highlights and pure black as the darker shadows.

I like them both, especially the bone on the handle, shame I couldn't use anything like that on mine, oh well, live and learn











and I started my assault squad for the Chappy to lead! main armour colour is done and started smoking the jet packs a bit.

Marine armies aren't right without some assault troops. Nice to see you working on them.

Thanks guys, I love the idea of the assault marines just barrelling forward and getting to grips with the enemy, hence such a large squad of them and it's really cool that I used the original pose of the Enkomi model and just put him on a differently angled terrain on his base and he looks heaps different, of course different arms help

I did a bit more on the model for my Neice for Christmas and she's really taking shape now, the colours are really nice together and look very whimsical for an 8 year old to enjoy! I painted little dots of cream and white and yellow to give the impression of small flowers in the grassland.

Bit too hard to define them more, they are kinda brushed onto the flock, not what i wanted to do originally but I wasn't spending 20 bucks buying small flowers :-)

I am totally behind the flowers nerdy. I think they really add to the base and enhance the figure. The trane (sp?) of the dress is amazingly beautiful. One of the best executions of this area I've ever seen done on this figure.

What an interesting way to paint black, I NEVER would have thought to use scratches of all things to highlight it. Fantastic work on those two.

As for the Yvraine, the little flowers do its job quite well, fills the otherwise completely green area. A nice touch is the darker grass being on the side of the rocks, and the almost blend up to light green to the right is really impressive. The colour choice is obviously quite bold, but I think she suits it well. Not a lot of models I'd reckon would work as well as the Yvraine has, but nevertheless great progress on her!

Thank you so much Gits, that's some mighty nice words to read about Yvraine, I'm going for an entire picture with her and the base, it's as a display for a little girl and I think the bold colours and style will make it look pretty and princess like and still make a good looking Yvraine model to enjoy

Thank ye Warboss! she's a really beautiful model and I wanted to have a reason to paint her, it may not be painted to fluff but I'm liking it so far!

She is a beautifully painted model Nerdy, and her base is exquisite. I have to chime in though how much I like the chaplain's cape, really well done.

Yes, Yvraine is looking stunning! Lovely purple on the cape, very Disney Princess, if that's what your niece likes. Spectacular base, too! Really makes Yvraine come to life.

That may be one of the best Yvraine's I've seen I hold my hands up to really disliking the combo of purple and blue of the regular Ynnari scheme, but I actually really like what you've done with it

Thanks again guys, I got a couple of boxes today from some people who live far away and want me to paint stuff for them again! :-) so now i've opened them and seen the contents you'll be seeing some more regular updates as I'll have to make sure I get some painting in each week! and while they're not 40K models they'll still be the ignition of me trying some new schemes and blends!

So I got a little box with 3 models to paint for RiTides and couldn't help myself so I immediately got assembling, converting and painting! and now they're done all in the space of less than 48 short hours! I know I need to go to hobbyists anonomous.

I hope you enjoy these models, they're really well cast and crisp as hell! and with a little tweaking I managed to come up with hopefully 3 individual looking models.
