Emperor of Mankind

Greetings.
Something a little different today. Finished my stand in for Guilliman. Will use this guy on the table with girlymans rules, i dont play many games so it will be few and far between but i thought it would be cool for the old Big E to take to the field surrounded my Custodes.
Tried Marbling for the first time, general consesus is its shit house, TBH i was chuffed with it when i first finished. Oh well can only improve.

Cheers
Matt

Sons of Sotha

Greetings,
Been a bit lazy on the hobby front lately. But last 3 days have smashed out some more primaris units. Pretty happy with the plasma glow on the Hellblaster unit if i should say so myself.


Cheers

"Rolling in hot!"

Finished the Avenger today.
Nice quick build and paint. Had planned to weather it further but decided i like the clean "start of campaign" look. Cockpit fit could have been better but wasn't alot i could do short of chopping it up to fix it.
 Hope you like it,
Cheers
Matt

Avenger air support WIP

Started working on another air support unit for my marines. The FW Imperial Navy Avenger. Love this model, very brutal looking. MY paint scheme inspiration is a ww2 Bf109 which i think will fit the air frame nicely.
Build was the usual when working with resin, lots of filling and sanding and at the end left still shaking ones head.
Moving ahead with the paint a mate reminded me of the black basing technique to try over my usual preshade. Black basing is Where you start from black and work up the colour and shadows with a patch layer first rather then starting with grey and adding shadows afterwards. Its supposed to give a more natural look to the paint. Im happy with how it has come out. Wasn't that much more work then normal if anything i found it a little easier.

Edit 22/10 : Rather then make a new post ive added the upadated pictures of work i did this morning.

More to come later.
Cheers
Matt

Fire Raptor WIP

Fire Raptor has been built and paint is underway. About mid way through the build i gave up on getting it perfect. Hoping the paint can hide its imperfections.
All of the Airbrush work is complete and now its onto fine brush work and weathering. Im rather happy with how its coming along.

Cheers
Matt

Fire Raptor build

G'day!
Been lazy last week or so since airbrushing all that glorious yellow. Its ok though im not gonna force myself to paint and burn out. I've accepted my mojo ebbs and flows and its ok. This week a most glorious object arrived in the mail! For as long long time i have wanted a Fire Raptor gunship and now i finally have one.

So i have read online that these are an absolute SOB to build and so far i tend to agree. Its taken alot of filling, sanding and swearing to get it this far. Its still no perfect but it will do. Since taking these pictures ive primed it ready for some more sanding and buffing. I feel like now the main body is done it will be pretty smooth sailing here out.

Stay tuned, much love.
Matt

Scythes of the Emperor

Greetings.
Quick update of what ive been doing. Still havent based the night, trying to figure out what im going to do with it. Have assembled and painted my first squad of primaris marines. Chose Scythes of the Emperors as my chapter. They will have some Custodes and assassin allies.

First up is the 3rd Squad 3rd Company. The 2nd Company wear the Templar cross battle honour on their right knee in recognition of service exterminating a Tyranid incursion on a Black Templar recruiting world.
The Scythes of the Emperor are the foremost experts on warfare against the Tyranid threat and are often called upon by other Space Marine chapters to lent their hard-fought expertise.

Cheers
Matt
