Showcase: Orruk Ironjawz, Bonesplitterz, and Greenskinz Heroes by Jörg

September 22, 2017 - 11:00

Welcome back for my final Orruk blog post! This time I want to focus on the heroes of my green tide.

The first Orruk I painted for Age of Sigmar was the Ironjawz Megaboss. When it was released, Games Workshop started their series of monthly painting competitions on Facebook, so I bought this model to submit.

WIP: Ultramarines Assault Squad #5

September 20, 2017 - 11:00

Another update on my Assault Squad. Slowest squad reworking ever. But I hardly find time to paint at the moment. Nevertheless, I'll grind through, only one more model after this batch. The two models with the flamethrowers are almost complete (apart from bases and transfers), while the Sergeant is about half-way done. Fun fact: It's probably the first plasma pistol I paint in almost 20 years of hobbying #just8theditionthings. How are your projects coming along?

Chat: No point crying over spilt paint

September 19, 2017 - 11:00

I joined the unenviable club of spilt wash at the weekend. I'm an optimist, I've aways considered my paint pots half full and not half empty so I decided to turn this "tragedy" into a positive. See what I came up after the jump. More after the jump

Showcase: Death Guard Plague Marine

September 18, 2017 - 11:00

Hi all! The newest model for my Death Guard Armies on Parade project is this "easy to build" Plague Marine. I tried an alternate colour scheme mainly using spray cans from GW and some washes (of course there were some details to pick out, too). The model is much darker then the ones I painted before. I wanted to show that there is a variety of colours within the Death Guard, depending on how far the individual rotting has come along.
What do think about this colour scheme? Let me know in the comment section...

Showcase: Deathrattle Wight King by Lecoqadoodledo

September 17, 2017 - 11:00

Hi guys, Lecoqadoodledo back with a miniature I worked on recently between a few other projects I’ve been prepping. I painted this Wight King as a gift for fellow Tale of Painters guest blogger FruitBear, and I’m very happy with how it turned out. I got to try out a couple of new things on this one, and refine some other techniques.

Showcase: Ork Morkanaut by ComradeQuiche

September 14, 2017 - 11:00

Comrade Quiche here with another Dread Mob update! This was actually the very first Dread Mob model (and Ork model for that matter) that I painted. I decided that since it was so huge I really wanted to go with a somewhat bright paint scheme. I thought that a Bad Moons paint job would give it just the right look. Since they are a rich klan, they should be able to afford one of these!

Showcase: Adeptus Mechanicus Kataphon Breachers by ComradeQuiche

September 10, 2017 - 11:00

Comrade Quiche here with a quick Ad Mech update. Today I have photos of my Kataphron Breachers. The weapons are magnetized onto the arm stumps, so I can swap out the guns to make them Kataphron Destroyers. I gave them the Heavy Grav Cannons as I really liked the way the barrels looked.

Showcase: Scythes of the Emperor Primaris Reivers by Lecoqadoodledo

September 8, 2017 - 11:00

Hello everyone! I’m back with Reivers from First Strike that I finished a month or so ago, with the refined scheme from the test Scythes of the Emperor Primaris I posted up a while back. This is definitely the finalised scheme, and I really enjoyed painting it. Not to mention these Reiver sculpts are incredible.
