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.

Here's a WIP shot of my Lord Discordant. The Hell Stalker is nearly finished. After that, it's on to the rider.

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!

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.
