Thank you! I am a big fan of these Squats, holding off buying more until I get more of the backlogged painted... I've said that before

Just a few finished things... might take a break tonight and get back to the hobby tomorrow.

Decided to add rust to the doors. Some are too rusty, but oh well. Not realistic either, but oh well!



Got all the Terrain from the Kill Team box "painted"... Goodness knows when I will be playing games, let alone playing games with my own terrain (which I have a lot of anyway). Can always go back and paint the screens or add more detail at a later date.



Working on more Nighthaunts...



Another Necron that just needs a varnish as well...

I really like your necron scheme.

Also the squats look great

Cheers, NotOnline.

So another Necron actually finished, and sort of photographed half decently. I believe this is a Plasmacyte.



More Chainraps finished.



And what I am still working on... Another Nighthaunt model, Squats, and a Hellmouth from Bear Head Miniatures.

Quick update.

What I plan on finishing this week... or at least try!



The squats I did last night, currently need based and matt varnished.



And nearly finished the Nighthaunt character, Liekoron the Executioner,



Just painting these Nighthaunts in the scheme given in the Mortal Realms magazine as it saves me thinking and I don't want to spend a lot of time on them either.

Liekoron finished

Didn't realise I had broken the arm of Liekoron the Executioner until I went to varnish him. I did drop him after showing him to a family member, thankfully I didn't hoover in the time between droppage and findage! Fixed now.



Safely on a shelf with the rest of my Mortal Realms models.



Got the Hellmouth from Bear Head Miniatures finished as well as some Bloodletters







The Bloodletters are ebay rescues... hence why one has picked up a chainsword to replace his broken sword. Should have cleaned them up better as the mould lines are annoying me now.

The alternate sculpts/special character Nighthaunts are really cool, it's a shame that they're so hard to get.

100% agree with you, Gwyn, they are very cool models, I do wish the Mortal Realms magazine was more widely available around the world!

A little more progression...





Concentrated on the Chaos Warhound and Khorne Berserker last night and have gotten a little bit done on the Squats and Necrons this morning pre-work.

I wasn't a big fan of the Warhound models, but they are growing on me. They do have a charm, I suppose.

The Berserker is a eBay rescue/bargain. Going to add some blood to the chainsword and perhaps a decal on the shoulder pad.

Finally, a few Squats just trying to keep the peace.

Those squats are awesome.

Also really like the Nighthaunt; how easy is the 'ghosty' effect? I keep meaning to start some I have stuck in a box, but I'm not sure how to approach them.

Cheers Denny. The ghostly effect is just a coat of Nihilakh Oxide over a white undercoat, followed by a light drybrush of Corax White. The blue is just Kantor Blue, Black wash, then a highlight with a lighter blue - Liekoron the Executioner has a few more highlights. To be honest, the Nihilakh Oxide is pretty amazing.

@NotOnline Cheers, appreciate it!

Necron Warriors

Actually did a bit on the Stormcast Shooty Thing



Green stuffing some Chaos Warhounds



Fixing up my Crabman from Bear Head Miniatures



Been washing these guys to get them primed. Few gaps to sort on the Stormcasts.

Cheers, Maharg. Really enjoying painting these Squats. Can see myself building quite an army of them at the moment

But first, I've quite the backlog to get through...

Skorpekh Destroyer





More Necrons Warriors



World Eater finished



And plan for today, get the last 2 Squats finished and the last 3 Necron Warriors from the Indomitus box. I wonder if I can stay on script

Those squats are looking excellent. They have an old-school general sci-if “dwarf-mixed-with-guardsman” look that would fit well with the original 40k aesthetic before everything started becoming over the top detailed and grimdark universe-specific.

I have seen that guy’s blog on here and his sculpting is impressive. You are the first one I’ve seen get them and do them proper justice with paint. The black-red-Green scheme is very bold and will look great on the table. It helps the faces and the white beards to really pop. Awesome work.

And lots of other good stuff here too. I’ve playing around with painting some chaos war hounds using contrast paints just to try them out on relatively cheap minis with good textures for contrast. I like your green stuff mods and natural scheme. I’ve been playing with blacks, browns, greys, and purples mostly. They are one of the only GW daemon models I like.

High praise indeed, thanks! Sort of copying the scheme from the original Space Dwarf Plastics box art, except I stayed away from the yellow! Thought it was perhaps a bit much! Plus I think black and green camo tanks with red bits will look really effective.

The Warhounds are hard to decide what sort of scheme to do them in. I will vary it up. Some more natural and a few maybe a little wilder.

Cheers, I will say Darren Latham is a genius, and I am just copying him.

Was quite good and stuck to my plan yesterday.

Space Dwarf Command Squad finished. I do love these figures.



Necron Warriors finished.



And I painted a Troll from Crooked Dice. Have another one to do.

A bit more work done.

Got a load of the bigger units form Indomitus painted.





Just varnishing and basing to do on these.

Did take a photo pre-varnish of the Nercon Heroes. Think the gold will add a lot to the overall look of the force.

Those gold accents will be great. Are you gonna be super stingy with the gold on "elite" non-character units like Lychguard and Praetorians or will they get the gold too?

The crons look even more snazy.

I don't know about the troll. But that may be the style of the model.
And the squats are as always adorable.

Thank you. To be honest, I haven't thought that far ahead. I've a couple more models from Indomitus to finish and then I probably won't get anything more until the new Warhammer subscription magazine with the Necrons in it come. Though I do really want to get a Doom Scythe to paint up and I'd like another Canoptek Spyder as well.... But I think the elite units will get a bit more gold.

Cheers. I know what you mean about the troll. I guess purple and ginger is an odd colour combination as well.

Canoptek Reanimator finished. Really nice model. I think I want another one of these as well!





Today I also built and prepped a few models... Bank Holiday Weekend is going to be painting and a bit of gardening.











Also bought a Meng Toon Tiger. I think even built as stock would be a good tank for my Squats - only think I did was take a bit of sprue and drill some holes in it to give it a thicker machine gun.

In between cutting down and digging out a bush, and complaining about my back I got plenty done on my wee Squat tank!



The bottom half of the tank shows it before a wash and dry brush.





Apart from washing the tracks and maybe the metal bits, I am so tempted to call this done. Think it is too busy to add loads of decals or weathering already but do think it will look cool as part of a Squat force.

Squats and a Tank







Stormcast Shooty Thing



Reikenor the Grimhailer - he is painted to the stage outlined in the Mortal Realms magazine... I think there will be another part suggesting further steps and I am just going to follow those - it saves thinking and painting by numbers is actually quite relaxing. Then I might add a few more details or highlights if I think it needs it.



So I am going to paint the crew of the shooty thing today and see what time I have left to perhaps do some more Stormcasts or Nighthaunts... or perhaps some Bloodletters...

So I got the Stormcast Shooty Thing, otherwise called the Celestar Ballista, finished. Spent too much time on the crew...









It isn't that bad a model either. I'm actually starting to really like the Stormcast models, even gold ones

Debating whether to do anything more to this Cairn Wraith... honestly think he is done.



Some Blood for the Blood God, just to chaos it up



And what I am currently fiddling with inbetween doing housework and real life stuff. Getting another Necron done, some Space Crusade Chaos Marines are going to get turned into some Word Bearers and more Sigmarines!

A few Stormcasts... they are pretty rough but will be fine on the tabletop if I ever get round to playing some AoS.

Another quick update.

Got Crawlocke the Jailor painted up. Didn't bother with the bits for the base, I will save them for a rainy day. Had a few problems with Crawlocke in that I broke him close to the bottom when cleaning him up. I then fixed him, then broke him again... this happened a few times... so I got to a certain stage of tidying up the repair job and decided I wasn't going to waste anymore time on it... the repair job is now so rough, I am slightly embarrassed...



Got a little order from CP miniatures - some demon things (not pictured) and a squad of Halfling Snipers, sculpted by INSO, the same amazing gentleman who sculpted the Squats I have been painting recently. The order also came with a free Space Dwarf... so will paint him up and see how well he fits in. Looks a fun sculpt. Also plan to get the necrons from Indomitus finished... and I really want to start getting all the rest of the Mortal Realms stuff painted up... So getting a few Stormcasts ready for painting.

More finished models

Skorpekh Destroyer Lord





That is the Necrons finished from Indomitus. Probably will be a while before I add anything else to this force. Enjoyed painting these, will have to get a group shot done at some time. Now to decide what chapter to do my Space Marines. They may end up being Ultramarines, as I quite like painting blue. I am tempted to do them as Howling Griffons but I want to get things finished

Space Dwarf from CP Models.



I like the model, just need to see what size he is compared to my other squats, otherwise he can be a Mercenary fighter in something.

Halfling Sniper from CP Models, sculpted by INSO.





Another great sculpt. Have another 4 to do for the squad. Shouldn't taken too long to do them in this scheme.

Got my Mortal Realms delivery as well, so have the models mostly built. Going to paint the riders and horses of the Hexwraiths separately, so only have the horses built so far.



Starting to go through the rest of the Mortal Realms stuff to get it all built (and even find it all). Think these came with the first issue with some coloured Chainrasps as well.



While looking for the Mortal Realms stuff I found this vehicle. Going to paint it as a command vehicle for my Squat Commisar.
