Showcase: Dark Angel Primaris Intercessors

September 19, 2018 - 11:00

You join me today as I start my journey of Conquest, Warhammer 40,000 Conquest to be precise. For the unaware Conquest is a Weekly Magazine subscription in the UK where they send you 4 issues once a month. Each issue will include models, paint, hobby equipment and/or terrain. You can see more in a video review I made here. Otherwise, join me after the jump to hear me explain why my Ultramarines are looking a little green around the multi-lung gills.More after the jump

WIP: Eldar/Aeldari Windriders of Craftworld Iybraesil #4

September 17, 2018 - 11:00

With the jetbikes finished (apart from a final check and transfers), I moved on to the pilots and weapons. The Farseer I saved for last. Really looking forward to ticking this unit off my list. I had these sitting in my cupboard for quite a while, and as they are quite complex models, I always adjourned them. What do you think? Leave a comment or reaction below.

WIP: Stormcast Eternals Astreia Solbright, Lord Arcanum

September 11, 2018 - 11:00

Hi all! Today I have a WIP of Astreia Solbright, the new Lord Arcanum for the Stormcast Eternals.As you can see, Astreia is missing because I just worked on the Dracoline so far :) I sticked to blue hues for this beast (Temple Guard Blue washed with Druchii Violet basically). Also, I spent a decent amount of time painting the base because there is a lot of detail you need to take care of. What do think? Leave a comment or reaction below…

WIP: Stormcast Dracothian Guard Concussors

September 8, 2018 - 11:00

When I was painting my Lord Celestant on Dracoth, it dragged. It was slow and awkward. These things are bigger than a Space Marine Dreadnought (the old ones, not the new one) and they're packed with detail. Why, oh why? Did I think it would be a good idea to paint another two of them! These had better be the Dracoth's danglies in a game. I'm hoping to arrange another game soon. Hope to get these finished for it. Oh, one more thing before I go, I'm getting myself a bit more organised and have set up a Garfy's Get a Grip facebook page. I'd appreciate it if you could take a moment to give it a like. Will be sharing info on the Grips, tips, sales, competitions, limited editions etc on the Facebook page. Cheers.

WIP: Eldar/Aeldari Windriders of Craftworld Iybraesil #3

September 7, 2018 - 11:00

Since I've finished my Chainrasps (for now), I can proceed with the second batch of Windriders. There'll be two more regular Windriders and a Farseer Skyrunner. The Farseer's body is a third-party sculpt I picked up on ebay from a Russian seller. He is a bit small, but unlike the official Citadel model, this version wears proper Farseer robes and doesn't just look like a Warlock with a Farseer head. Arms come from the official model and the head comes from the 4th Edition metal Farseer sculpts. Stay tuned for more!

WIP: Stormcast Eternals Celestar Ballista

August 26, 2018 - 11:40

Just a quick snap from my painting desk today to share my current progress of my Celestar Ballista. The warmachine is finished and I'm about half way done on the crew. My Get a Grips are helping me a lot with these. It's weird how a new piece of equipment (wether it's brushes, paint, clippers or even a grip) can really motivate you to paint. I kinda get that feeling with new models. New models do motivate me to paint but theres a limit, as soon as it gets too much it has the opposite effect. One new model is fine, 100 is damn right scary. I think that's why I've enjoyed not buying the Soul Storm boxset and instead opted to buy the army in chunks of a few hundred points instead. Seems to be working out well and I'm on track to complete 1500pts soon. I can't wait to share the army shot.

I also took the necessary pictures for a comprehensive step-by-step tutorial for the chap in the middle with the candles, so stay tuned for a painting tutorial soon!

Showcase: Ultramarines Primaris Captain by Lecoqadoodledo

August 23, 2018 - 11:00

Hey everyone, Lecoqadoodledo here with a Primaris Ultramarine Captain. I painted this guy as a gift for a close friend that got me into the hobby. I decided on an Ultramarine because they’re my friend’s favourite chapter, and he’s a bit of a son of Guilliman himself. I’d never painted one before, so I figured I’d stick as close to an ‘Eavy Metal style paint job as possible.
