Hi guys thanks for the kind comments. Really keeping me motivated to see the project through to the end (Is there ever an end to an Imperial Guard project? )

The Fureans Warlord looks awesome. Are you using stencils or something, or freehand?


Yeah I'm using some flame stencils from Anarchy. I cannot recommend them enough. I've used them on multiple projects, from just putting red stars on tanks to putting leopard spots on Knarlocs. All of which have been better than my freehand could ever achieve.

Thanks


You have no idea how handy that stencil link will be. Thanks for sharing.

You know, if there's one thing I've learnt from being in the Army, it's never ignore a pooh-pooh. I knew a Major who got pooh-poohed; made the mistake of ignoring the pooh-pooh. He pooh-poohed it! Fatal error! 'Cause it turned out all along that the soldier who pooh-poohed him had been pooh-poohing a lot of other officers who pooh-poohed their pooh-poohs. In the end, we had to disband the regiment.

For sure. There's me thinking I'd have to print, cut out and set ca. 300 red star decals. Nope. Just stencil the [Expletive Deleted]. It'll save me hours and hours and much ballache.

Awesome. I have some flame stencils from a similar company, fallout hobbies I think. Do you airbrush after putting the stencil on? Spray can? Paint brush?

Do you have to mask away the rest of the model, or presumably you do that before putting the plates on?

There's a video on the link. They fold out to make a little 'bucket' to catch overspray and they say they're not recommended for paint-brushing.

My plan is to use sponge, 'cause I don't have an airbrush.

I just use my airbrush. I haven’t had any overspray on The rest of the model. The sponge method also works well. Also can add depth if you sponge in different shades.

I do like the conversions, ideally I'd like GW to just update the Leman Russ, or add in another heavy tank. My true want, would be to have the Macharius variants become heavy supports and plastic.

A man can hope right?

So today I'll mostly be focusing on base coating 2 annihilators, a demolisher and the recovery tank.


There are a multitude of Leman Russ turret options, one of the best companies is called "Blood and Skulls Industry"

Here is their webstore, which is set up on eBay : https://www.ebay.ca/str/bloodandskullsindustry?_sop=15&rt=nc

I have purchased bits from them before, here is my Photo Album : https://www.dakkadakka.com/gallery/images-91110-58698_Blood%20And%20Skulls%20Industry.html

A relatively large update as far as the motor pool goes tonight.

I’ve managed to basecoat, put on transfers and battle damage the 4 latest tanks up. Over the weekend I’ll pick out weapons, stowage, lenses, crew and all the other bits I notice that need extra paint.

I’m super happy with the look of these tanks. I think if I do decide to get another batch I’ll more than likely get the dremel out on them. Propererly bash and tear them up.

Well enough of my jibba jabba. Pictures!

Quickly did this before work.

A few people had made suggestions about putting hazard stripes on the demolishers mine plough. As the people pleasing gentleman I am. I had to oblige them. So this is the result, minus obvious weathering.


Thoughts?

Cheers ZB. Not really recent. Think I bought it around May. They’re done with transfer paper and pictures found online.

I seem to have been tainted. When I happened upon the new Delaque miniatures. My vision blurred and my brow went sweaty. The heresy grasped me. I thought they’d make great cultist mixed in with the FW bits I have from years ago.

This conversion spewed forward from now tainted mind. It’ll be used as a wyvern. It’ll more than likely have a lot of brothers and sisters. Thinking a chaos siege army.

Don’t get me wrong. This will only be a minor moon rebellion. The planet Arkuria is still loyal to the imperium.

I’ve chosen an epic new route. Epic Armageddon. Looks like a superfun game. So I thought I’d test my new photon printer out.
Stay tuned for painted pictures.

Tiny tank is incredible. I've had a ridiculous amount of trouble getting my 3d printer to work, but you've inspired me to give it another go.

Looking forward to seeing it painted!

Tzurk that is great news. I was recently inspired by a guy on a Facebook group to get into it after seeing his results. So it’s great to hear that it’s gone full circle. Good luck and hopefully you can come back and show us your triumph with the printer.

Good evening my epic adventure continues.

I’ve went with a Ultramar paint scheme. Having read the dark imperium book recently I thoroughly enjoyed all the bits in there pertaining to the ultramar sector. With this in mind I thought I’d do a PDF force.

If I thought I was hard painting 28mm heroic figs I was sorely mistaken in comparison to these 6mm Miniatures. I’m pretty worried about the infantry I’m not going to lie. I can barely see the details never mind pick it out.

Anybody got any good advice?

Good evening,

@Stonned_Astartes. Yeah I printed them myself. Got the files of Thingiverse.

So I’m been very slow as of late. Really just haven’t had any drive to paint or even glue Miniatures together. Tonight however I broke through the barrier and nearly finished two titans.

I’ve got to finish the plasma weapons on the warhound and the right leg of the warlord. Obviously neither of the bases are done. I will be going for a mars red planet for the bases.

Any C&C welcome

Just a small update tonight.

My first base of PDF troopers from the Ultramar Segmentum. Hopefully I’ll settle on some sort of 3k list. But I’ve never played epic before and I’ve got no opponents. So just a stab in the dark as far as a good army is concerned.

Thanks spyro. I’ve never played either. But with the advent of Adeptus Titanicus I fell in love with the small scale. I’ve got another 50 troops with 5 heavy weapons to do. Shouldn’t take much time at all. The bases won’t be staying as mud that was just done so I could see if they looked more finished. They’ll be getting the Martian dust treatment.

A little update probably the last of the year.

I’ve had a few problems with the photon printer. I assume they’re down to the user and not the machine.

I’m happy with the infantry. The tanks need more ooooomph.

Hope you like.

I have been rather bad as of late if posting anything on here.

I’ve got back into lord of the rings, do I have been painting some hobbits and searching the hobby cave for more as I’m sure I’ve got some more. I’ve painted a few more of AT and I’ve made a cast of some 8mm 40k cargo containers. Which I will be using to make a large board. Least that’s the plan. We will see what comes of it.

Here’s a picture of the casts. There’s a few minor bubbles which I don’t mind in something so small. I’ve sprayed these a mix of red and gun metal. I’ve done no weathering on them.

So as per normal I’ve slunk back into a project which I though was long dead. My 30k mechanicus. Up on the painting block today we have the thanatar. I’ve got a few of these as I love the model, it ooozes horrible 30k siege warfare to me. Which is what I’ll be using it as in 40k more than likely just proxying it as some some of short range artillery or a demolishers leman Russ.


Obviously the base is still who. The blue foam bits will be rocks.
Hope you like it, thoughts?


Have a good weekend all.
