My two Land Raiders – all done!
As I’ve mentioned before, these will be part of my own chapter, using Deathwing rules.
Really happy with how they turned out. Now to finish the rest of the army, in about six weeks…
Almost done! Here are some more pics of my Vendetta and Manticore. Soon, soon they will be finished. And with that, my 2000 point army will be done!
My Renegade Guard army is almost done, at least 2000 points of it.
Still got some details on my Manticore and on my Vendettas left to do.
For now, I just built 20 Renegade Guardsmen. Aside from the legs, they’re mostly made from Forgeworld bits.
I’ll have these bad boys painted in no time! Stay tuned!
Here’s another project I’ve been working on. A WIP of a giant ork, probably a new Warboss since my current one is too small.
Forgeworld biker boss as base, with bionic legs made from plasticard and Ghaz’s arms scavenged from an old model.
Not sure how to base him though. Dread base? Termie?
I’ve made som progress on the Dreadnoughts as well. Both will carry double twin-linked Autocannons.
Or as my Ork player friends call it: “Ouch.”
Really liking the new Tau stuff, so I decided to paint a Broadside.
There’s a green Suit in the new Codex that really caught my eye, so I’m trying my hand at replicating that, with minor alterations.
Basically done with the body, more to come!
More detail pics of the Land Raiders. Almost there!
Some pics of my 1500 point Traitor Guard army, in fierce battle against the Eldar last weekend! They scored a solid victory after 5 turns. The mission was “Emperor’s Will”, really fun. It’s always nice to break the monotony of painting with a good game.
The army is progressing. Next month, my goal is to add one Manticore and a Deathstrike – getting closer to a full-size Apocalypse army!
Land Raider Godhammertime!
Here you can see the colours used to base all the Terminators and their vehicles; Tau light ochre, Ushabti bone and Screaming skull.
I’ve weathered all the armour with washes and powders, and, with the help of masking tape, given the Land Raiders a couple of purple stripes.
I’m using the Deathwing army list, but the army will be part of my own chapter, the Knights Sangreal, whose chapter colours are mainly orange with spots of purple, black and white. Their chapter symbol is a fleur-de-lys. More of them here and here, and here.
Here’s a WIP of my Mega Dread, Da Doomstompa. The idea with the chainsaw is shamelessly stolen from John Shaffers brilliant Blood Axe Dread.
Next update will see it painted! More or less.
DA BOSS - PART TEN - THE END
This is what last years Golden Demon entry looks like finished, with some extra detail shots of da boss himself! I built the bases and painted the lines on the ground to match up so it would feel like they’re all in the same place.
You can see part of a chain hanging limp from the Warboss’ hip with a couple of broken links on the ground, leading over to the other half of the chain flailing from the ankle of the charging Attack Squig. His Kombi-Flamer is apparently all filled up as an empty jerrycan, matching the one the Ammo Runt is carrying in his hand, lies discarded at the Warboss’ feet.
This project started off as a gift to a friend and has been entered into both The Fang and Golden Demon along the way. Now it’s been handed off to him and lives happily on display in Games Workshop Edinburgh… for now. So if you’re ever in Scotland, feel free to stop by GW Edinburgh. Hopefully it’ll still be there and you can see it in the flesh!

The Attack Squig was so much fun to convert, and I’m really happy with how he turned out after he got some paint slapped on him.
I love the original model that it’s based on and wanted to keep as much of it as possible, but it just looked puny next to the Warboss.
I like the dead Guardsman for scale purposes, but it also kind of looks like something that the squig could have coughed up, kind of like a hairball or something. I posted some WIP pics of this gruesome guy a while back, if you want to see them again check out DA BOSS - PART THREE here.
DA BOSS - PART EIGHT
All right, enough WIP pics – here we go!
The first guy from the gang to get some detail pics is this bad ass little Ammo Runt. He’s based on the latest plastic Goblin Shaman for Warhammer. I had a lot of fun painting him, especially his denim cap and the clear drop of fuel on the jerrycan turned out pretty cool.
In case you missed the WIP pics of this tiny dude here is a link to DA BOSS -PART TWO
One of my Chimera and my three Leman Russes are done. I’ll get some better pics soon, and show off my converted Medusa.
These guys took a while to finish, but I’m happy with the result.
I will make a tutorial for chipping and weathering effects, if anyone’s interested.
Hope you all enjoy!
Alright, so I just started on a crazy project: to finish a Deathwing army before June 1st. That’s 30 Terminators, 2 Land Raiders and 2 Dreadnoughts.
Thankfully, I have an airbrush.
The top image shows my patented dust-preventive light-enhancer. (I just stuck a vacuum cleaner to my lamp to keep from getting paint dust everywhere…)
I’ll do a couple more layers of brown, then bone, on the armour, and then start on shades, highlights and details with a brush.
Let’s do this!
