The spacemarines are great and sooo clean. Love the Khorgorath too - mine is missing a few bits so will likely steal the stolen conversion to try and bodge a new head for the thing as it seems to look pretty damn good like that!

Cheers IGtR! From what I can tell, plenty of people seem to think the Khorgorath's original head is a bit silly, but happily that has led to some great headswaps! I like this eyeless daemon skull, as it reminds me of Doom's Hell Knights.

Alright, a new year, time to rev up the hobby engine! Didn't get much done during the holidays as I was visiting friends and relatives, but I did manage to build Spiteclaw's Swarm and some scatter terrain / objective markers for Azazel's January challenge. I started painting the metals on the Swarm, the terrain pieces will be primed and painted some time during this month. Shouldn't be more than a couple of days work when I get to it.. BTW, it was cool to see that those Battle for Macragge force field projectors are getting a face lift in the Urban Conquest box that'll be released in two weeks.

Yet another success with that daemon!

Looking forward to see the rats painted. The metal pieces are looking good already.
Do you prime the metal parts with different color or paint straight on top of the grey?

Hope you enjoyed the holiday season

Thanks Ezki! Holiday season was very enjoyable, and I even got to play a couple of games of Shadespire!

For the metals on the rats I followed RobPaintsModels' tutorial, I didn't really prime with different color, but basecoated with Rhinox Hide. Then a drybrush of Warlock Bronze and another of Leadbelcher. I then gave it a coat of Agrax. I still have to do a highlight of Runfang Steel, I'm thinking a light drybrush and maybe some selective edge highlighting.

That new urban conquest box is quite tempting. I don't have any terrain so some scatter would be good! Agree it's cool to see some of the old pieces get updated, although I'd say quite a few people won't recognise them!

Liking the metallics on the Skaven too, may be stealing the method.

Thanks! Yeah that box contains some really nice pieces. I don't play the game though, so I don't really have a use for them, or the rules at least. Could be nice for photoshoots though, so maybe I'll eventually grab a set from eBay..

I'm glad! They're remnants of my teenage hobby years, it's pretty cool to go back and pick up where I left off. I curse myself for throwing away the crashed lander though.. One day I'll get another!

Finished the metals, apart from some rust streaks that I'll add when the minis are otherwise done, and basecoated the furs. I'm going to go with more hairy rat-men than GW's naked man-rats, and a different color for each. Skritch was inspired by Adventure Time's Rat King, and Festering Skaven is obviously painted Eshin Grey. I'm now at the stage of painting where I'm doubting myself a bit all as all the different colors look really.. different. I'm sure washes, highlights and the team colors on the robes will tie everything together though.

I've finished the hairy bits on everyone except Skritch and started on the fleshy parts. I tried to do some hair-like texture rather than just regular layering, I think it worked out pretty good.

Seconding all the comments about clean marines. Your paint scheme is really cool too - I love all the helms with the yellow halves. Just discovered this blog, made for very pleasant reading. Consider me subbed

Thanks lipsdapips, I appreciate you stopping by! It's cool to see that people seem to like my marines; there's not a lot of original paint schemes in this thread, but the marines are pretty much my creation! They're also a bit of a pain to paint, but the end result is worth it

Not as much progress on the rats last week as I would've wanted (=they're not yet ready), but I'm getting close. I painted all the brown straps and wooden bits and started on the purple cloth. Skritch's cloak is pretty much done, though I'm thinking of adding one more highlight for some added contrast. After the purple is done, it's only some detail work, minor clean-up and bases before they're finished.
