Hey everyone, I have decided to re start my blog since sadly there's about 200 pages of my original one that has no images to see thanks to Photobucket and their fantastic business skills and client support ..... or lack thereof

So, on a positive note I have found some older images of the Primarchs I've done and thought they'd be a nice start to the new improved blog and might entice a few newer faces to start following my progression and projects as I learn and convert and hopefully come up with some ideas to astound and amaze

I have some work for RiTides coming up very soon which i'm looking forward too and i'm pretty sure Whaley will find something for me to do so please help me out guys and keep me going by linking or keep commenting so I can pick up speed and not fade into Dakka history

Now! let's get Primarching!

Fulgrim is still one my favorite models I have painted in my time and feel I really did him justice and gave him the right amount of dark & light, bling & beauty, he was a one of the first I did for someone else and I got to try new things and play around more than I had previously, this is something I carried through with each progressive primarch I painted trying to learn and do things a bit better and more interesting.




Vulkan was a great experiment on a sort of candy paint effect on his armour, it led me onto the way I do my metals now.



Horus was fun, a real test to bring him to life with his face as a focal point and really good spot colours to work in with the black armour.




A more recent addition was Conrad Kurze, not being a fan of blue since it's a colour I find hard to get right I tried a darker technique and think it looks pretty good.



Ferrus was my Primarch in a day fun, I wanted to start and finish him in one sitting, I really enjoyed the blending of the metals into his arms flesh tone on this one.



Another of my favorite models I have painted was rather suprisingly Lorgar, his pose and base gave me a reason to do things a little different with lighting and try to evoke his chapters background, golden skin and history.



Lastly for today I have another completely different style of Primarch, Mortarion, an awesomely fun model with so much scope for weathering and environmental effects, toning them down to look realistic was the hard part.



and one last pic of a little group shot of the guys that Whaley has in his display



So welcome young and old I hope to bring you hundreds of pages more with updates of all the older finished models I managed to save pics for!

Oh Whaley you sound so begrudging to follow I am working on your Enkomi model now for you so I can send them to you with Conrad and get ready for whatever you find to get painted!

So in keeping with my re posting of older works I've got more to put up today for you to see and bring back memories!

The biggest baddest reddest flyingest box eva! my old Flesh Eaters StormRaven.



A little toe in the water for a Badab force when I wanted to do Howling Griffons.



A Bug, .......a BIG bug! gifted to Gitsplittas sons army, I just wanted to have a go at something like this.




and lastly for today a small change of pace with two Hordes models.




I'll have some more tomorrow guys!

I think i'll post some of the old pics each time I get a reply until I run out it's great for me too since I get a buzz out of remembering the models and it might inspire me with something I forgot about!

So lets see what I have in the folder tonight......


Looks like it's Gits' Admech army I worked on for him and a couple of Imperial Fists These were so much fun to paint and working with the candy red and pairing it with the metals was a new style for me.






and the Imperial fist squad I started with, particularly it's the sergeant I am happy with the most, his face just looks good

Thanks guys, it's really nice to see you still keen to re visit some of the work i've done that I managed to save, I kinda forgot how much stuff i've actually painted it's going to be a decent ride seeing them all again!

I've got some more Imperial Fists, a Nurgle dude and some more Whaley work.

Nurgle herald up first today with a bit of an experiment on different texture and colour blends.




Group shot of Whaley's Sallies assault marines, not too old but here they are again



Staying with the group theme, the Grey Knights converted beautifully by BigH that I got to paint.



Imperial Fists Sternguard and Landraider! I do miss that yellow........





and finally a Chaos Warrior for the Gorechosen arena.

Happy be Theseus, full of vexation I come against my daughter Hermia!

so firstly, yes, comments glean more pics until I run out and second, thinning my paint isn't a precise technique for me, usually I wet my brush, then lick it and grab paint from the edge of my colour on the palette if it needs more I repeat until it's right. the secret is I generally always end my colours with a wash over everything to tie them together.

and now today is another of my personal favorites i've painted, the Knight Atropos for RiTides! I just love how she turned out, the metals, the weathering, the yellow, the textures, just everything I think worked perfectly and i'm proud of this paint job.







and relevant models that belong with the big girl are a Magos and his thralls, I really love the yellow and brown theme on the Magos, a little different but looks striking!





I think in the folder coming up soonish is my most bestest favoritest model I've painted and it may come as a suprise which one it is!

I might have to experiment with some yellow on some AdMech stuff myself, it gives a wonderfully industrial feel that you don't really get from the red as that evokes more of a religious feel.

So here it is, the model I have painted that for some reason I just really love, I don't know what it is about it, it could be the sculpt or scheme I used or even the feeling it evoked in me as I painted her but I am just really happy with that paint job and how it looks.

also got some more Gits' models to show and another addition to RiTides Admech.
