  1. Well, it's been about seven years since I last painted a space marine, and I have to confess that seeing all the amazing work on the new Primaris Marines was making me want to give it a try again. I have long thought it would be cool to do a chrome (or SENMM [Sky-Earth Non-Metallic Metal]) Marine, so I finally gave that a shot! The technique itself is painfully slow, but I had a lot of fun, and I'm pretty happy with the results! Oh, and I did do a little bit of conversion work by swapping in some old Dark Angels bits, in case anyone was wondering! Thanks for looking! Hopefully, after ReaperCon, I'll have time to do a YouTube tutorial on how I did the chrome for those of you who are interested!
  2. So I finally got this book and began prepping the miniature that came with it. I'm really impressed with the design of the new Primaris. Very well done. To start I felt like the over all miniature needed some more weight to it. I mixed up some sculpty and green stuff and filled in his base and pressed the remaining into his back. It still fits together cause there is a lot of hollow space in him. The only reason I knew it was light was they had a few on display at the Games Workshop store so I got to pick one up.
  3. Alpha Legion Primaris Intercessors Marine
  4. Luna Wolves Primaris Intercessors
  5. Presenting Grand Master Voldus, he's a special character from that Gathering Storm campaign thing Games Workshop have had going on recently. Still haven't worked out how to paint Space Marine armour properly, but he was fun to work on. As always, any comments or criticisms, are warmly received.
  6. A deeply religious fellow, the Knight of Remembrance was originally a Knight Chaplain responsible for recording the names of his fallen comrades in arms. Spending too long seeing too many good men die due to the arrogance and incompetence of those in charge, he left his original knightly order to offer his skills to those in need. Another Space Marine from Games Workshop Deathwatch:- Overkill set, I had a lot of fun painting him even if he was covered in way too much stuff. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  7. Presenting the Knight of the Storm. After encountering the legendary Knight of Skulls, he was inspired to abandon his original knightly order, who had become little more than the attack dogs of the corrupt Galactic Nobles, and set out on his own. Eventually he banded together with other, like-minded, knights to form The Brotherhood of Bones, a beacon of hope in an otherwise cold and uncaring universe. Yep, it's another Space Marine, this time it's one of the heroes from the Deathwatch: Overkill boxset. Didn't want to use the official Deathwatch colour scheme (a very boring mostly black with a silver left arm), so I'm making it up as I go again. As always, any comments or criticisms are greatly appreciated.
  8. Here's a rendition of the old version of the Despoiler. With Forge World's newer rendition of him (in their Horus Heresy line) it is easy to overlook the older one. For one thing, he's smaller than you would expect from a character in terminator armor- but he fit right in back when he was first introduced... about twenty years ago. For the record, credit for the base belongs to my client. Anyway, here he is:
  9. Presenting the Knight of Skulls. Despite his fearsome appearance, he is a true champion of justice who travels the galaxy protecting the vulnerable colonists of the outlying worlds from marauding Space Pirates and other terrors. He is actually a Dark Angel Interrogator-Chaplain Space Marine from Games Workshop, but I didn't want to get bogged down into matching official colour schemes and such so he is now The Knight of Skulls. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  10. I decided to reboot by old space marine army and here is my first finished mini for that endeavor. I decided to go with an older look and am thus buying as much of the forge world minis for this as is possible. Yes it is very expensive but I'll enjoy they way it looks better. And since all of my old imperial fists minis need rebasing anyway, I thought I'd start over. The bases I'm using for this are the secret weapon blasted wetlands. I'm also using the Imperial Fists decal sheet from forge world. Thus, I give you the Imperial Fists MKII Standard bearer. This is a closeup of the banner. I used the forge world decal sheet for this. The dorn and the banner background are 2 different decals stacked. Now a comparison of what the rest of the old army looks like. I think the new ones are going to be WAY better. This also shows how far I've come in my 15+ years of painting.
  11. finished my Chaplain for my Luna Wolves :) Finally got better lighting and some better pictures. Still a line or two on him I wish I had done a better job on greenstuffing :( Really liked painting this model, it has a lot of details and I had a lot of fun painting the "plasma" effect on the gun. And a shot of him with the models I've completed thus far:
  12. Here is a project that I really got to get into. My client wanted an Imperial Knight that had turned to Tzeentch. It was to be allied with his Chaos Daemons force, so it did not need to be a Thousand Sons Knight. There is only a little bit of conversion here- the head was swapped out for the head of a High Elf Phoenix. Otherwise, the alignment was all down to coloration. I wend with a blue to purple fade for most of the armor plating- I felt this was right for the god of change, and the bright pink contrasted nicely with that (and also matched a force composed largely of pink horrors). Of course, it isn't right to leave any Imperial Knight mini without freehand, so I made sure to get a lot of the Changing God's iconography all over him.
  13. I've been working on my Fabulous Force and so far I gotta say they're turning out better than I expected. But there's so much room for them to be better... For example, while the whole point of these guys is to be PINK!!! I can't help but find it a bit too monotonous. Especially on the back. It probably wouldn't take much to accent it and break up the pink a bit, I'm just not sure what to do. Opinions would be very appreciated, on any aspect of the mini. Edit: Show-off thread here.
  14. Not quite sure where to put this, but I wanna show them off, and sculpting seems most appropriate. Here's a set of Land Raider doors I've sculpted (virtually, at least) and sent to Shapeways to have 3D printed in ultra fine detail plastic. Some day, I'll even finish painting the Land Raider itself. It's only taken me eleven years to get this far. As they arrived: With base coat and in place on the original model as proof of fitting: With final paint:
  15. So I have not painted a terminator in over 20 years and this is my first attempt at NM gold. My friends son had this laying around and asked me to paint it for him. His choice of colors and I tried to keep the mini with a dark feel. Not exactly how I wanted it to end up but still more than happy with end result. please c&c and thank you in advance ;)
  16. So Loim sent me an Evil Tree. This is good. I like evil trees; have ever since "The Wizard Of Oz" and "H.R. Pufnstuf" turned my childhood into a surreal candy-colored hell of photovores that wanted to eat me. Anyway, Loim did me a solid recently, and included an experiment on his part -- an evil tree he'd sculpted from greenstuff as an experiment. A learning experience. Having apparently learned what he wished to learn, he sent it to me. I'm not proud. I took it and ran with it. I'm not sure where my head is at, lately; since taking a break from the Great Swordsmen project, I've been doing some goofy stuff. I needed a side project, and Werewolvian's Orc Bartender idea* inspired me to try something similar. The surprising success (on my part, not Werewolvian's) led me to get a little ambitious with some Space Marine parts... and to prime Loim's tree in preparation for painting and possible foliageification... Input welcome, since I'm not quite sure where I'm going with any of these... (Loim's Evil Tree: Greenstuff, sculpted by Loim. Hello Space Marine: stock GW Space Marine with scratchbuilt custom "helmet." Orcish Waitstaff: Reaper Bones Bartender and Serving Wench with head swap from some of Tre Manor's Orcpocalypse. And the Space Marine at far right is nervous that he might be next.... *http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/56493-orc-bartender-mod/?hl=%2Borc+%2Bbartender
  17. It's finally done.My first full Freehand Banner. I'm pretty proud of it and the results. I can see where I could have done better but I'm happy where he is. I've also included the family photo of his Command Squad. C&C always welcome.
  18. Wow! Check out this guy's incredible Warhammer 40K space marine costume from last weekend.
