Hello all! I've been looking through the various P&M blogs on this site and thought I'd join in and share my works with my fellow forum-goers. I started out painting Gunpla six years ago (2014) and first got into Warhammer through Warhammer TV's tutorials two years ago (2018) because I wanted to improve my painting. That is also the time that I got into painting Warhammer kits with my first kit being the Azyrite Ruins which I used in a diorama with my Zaku Half-Cannon kit.

I've since gotten heavily into painting 40k kits, as I collect mostly Blood Angels and Nightlords - and will soon begin collecting Iron Warriors to change it up as I've grown tire of those two factions.




Don't worry, I have many more painted kits than just the few I'll show below.

I'll try to post updates regularly, but I do tend to suffer burnout every once in awhile. Also, every Thursday will be a "Throwback Thursday" where I post something I've already completed (only since 2018, as that's when I finally learned to paint well). Finally, I'll leave you all off with this epic photo.

Cheers!

And here is the first of my Iron Warriors. I sawed off his right hand and used a left over Chaos Raptors Plasma Pistol, and I did the same to his left hand and added a left over CSM Power Axe. The theme for the base is a ruined city.

The first CSM that I've painted for my Iron Warriors army. He was painted separately from the others as a test of the paint scheme I had in mind, and I'd say it was a success. The other four of this guy's squad are soon to follow.

I'm still waiting on an order from GW for Mk III Space Marines and I'll be visiting my FLGS for a box of regular Chaos Space Marines with which to kitbash Squad 2. I'm also waiting on orders from Amazon and Green Stuff World for basing materials before I start on my Lord Discordant. I also have an order of Havocs coming from Amazon.

Hey mate,

Nice work on the first squad of Iron Warriors! Simple, grimy palette that's executed well. Love their names too

The bases are a nice touch - are they a press mould or do you sculpt individual bricks for each dude?

The giant robots are cool too. The explosion effects would make for fun little narrative tools in games!

Good luck with expanding the collection and thanks for sharing!

t z you are k

Hey Tzurk, thanks for commenting! I used a textured rolling pin from Green Stuff World to do the texture on the bases.

I don't ever find myself in the hobby circles that do Gunpla, they're pretty cool as big robots go.

Your marines look good too, especially the steed of your discolord!

Thanks for the comments guys! I really appreciate it.

Gunpla were actually the first models I started doing way back in 2014, although it was Zero from Bandai's Mega Man X Mega Armor series that got me into the hobby. They're really fun kits to build, especially for beginners who are a little intimidated by minis.

I like that shimmery gold on the Gundam, matches up well with the blue. Digging that Hellstrider too, one of my favorite CSM models.

Thank you very much for the kind words. The gold I used was Fulgurite Copper over a Balthazar Gold base coat. I'm nearly done with Helstalker too. I just need to paint some black and red cables on it, and then I can finish the rider.

My next squad of 40k Iron Warriors is 30% done! I used parts from the latest CSM, and the Mark III Space Marines kits.


EDIT:
Make that 29%. Just noticed I need to paint the chaos symbol hanging from the Aspiring Champion's belt gold.

I love how bright they are! They look ironically knightly, which is a look I've always enjoyed for Space Marines.

Thanks for the compliments! I'm pretty much just following the painting recipe from the back of the box, with a few of my own tweaks here and there.

So I'm currently taking a break from the Iron Warriors to work on a large foam terrain piece. It's about 2'x3'. The different foam layers are glued together with Gorilla Glue. I'm almost ready to add plaster (Sculptamold) over the top to create rocky cliffs and smooth bed for the pond that'll be going in the middle. I'll also be using some Woodland Scenics rock molds to create realistic rock faces for the cliffs. There'll also be a ruined statue of a battle sister (purchased from Etsy) in the middle of the pond and some left over Azyrite Ruins around the outskirts of the terrain.

My terrain piece is almost finished. I've been working on it in my garage, so I apologize for the crappy lighting.


I have some touch ups to do on the destroyed statue since I got a little plaster on the face.

The sunken statue works really well! Also nice job on the pink on the apostle, it's nice and smooth.

I love how muddy the area around it looks. I'd believably avoid that area for quicksand!

Thanks! It was a pain in the butt to get the pink smooth. It took like four coats of Emperor's Children over two coasts of Screamer Pink.

Thanks! The muddy look was done completely by accident. I made a mixture of scenic glue that's one part Modpodge to two parts water (with a little Dawn dish soap to act as a flow improver) used a ton. It just naturally pooled really thick in the pond area and dried looking like that even after I soaked up a bunch of the excess scenic glue with a paper towel.

All that's left to do on the terrain before I bring in the house is to add some bushes and paint the outside rim black. Once it's in the house, I'll do the resin pour in the pond.

A quick question though, yeah or neigh on adding trees?
