So, I've been working on an Iyanden army for my local gaming store's hobby challenge event they are running. I know it's been a while since Iv'e updated this blog, but here's a bunch of pics of stuff Iv'e done since February.
I've updated the Gallery with all the photos I downloaded off of photobucket after they changed how they handled their hosting. About 160 odd photos added to the Gallery, but there are probably some duplicates :)
So we've had a pretty decent couple of days of weather recently, so I finally pulled my thumb out and undercoated the majority of the remaining vehicles I have to paint.
Conveniently I had a nice packing crate from replacement parts for my laser cutting / engraving machine :)
Now I just need to work on getting my airbrush back up and running.
Because I haven't painted enough gold already, I'm painting some Adeptus Custodes to add to my growing collection.
I haven't decide on how I will be basing them yet, but these guys are pretty much done apart from a couple of small touch ups and the banner guys needing some work still.
I recently got myself a copy of Dark Imperium. Mostly because I wanted the awesome new Primaris marines that come with it. I've already begun assembling them, starting with the characters.
I haven't decided yet whether I will add them to the chapter or start a different chapter. I have always wanted to do a Blood Angel army...
So for now I'll just focus on assembling them while I paint my Custodes instead.
It appears the text I wrote disappeared! So, the gist of it was, I was in the UK / Ireland for my sister's wedding and couldn't not visit Warhammer World. So I picked up the Warhammer World Exclusive command tanks to add to the chapter :)
I'll post a bunch of pics I took at Warhammer World later, once I get them off the camera.
So a lot has happened since I last really painted much of anything for the marines. It has been a long two and a bit years where I've lacked any real motivation to do much of anything hobby related in anything more than bits and pieces.
That all changed about a month or so ago. As this project no doubt attests to, I love my Warhammer 40k and anyone who has been following the recent developments would know that a new edition of 40k is being released in about a week's time.
I never really got to play much of the 7th edition (the new edition coming out is 8th for the uninitiated). Between my son being born and the aforementioned lack of motivation, I just haven't had the time or inclination to do so.
Anyway, the new edition and the advancing of the story line of the 40k universe has really gotten me excited about the game and hobby once again, so I've picked up the dice, tape measure and paint brushes and have started getting some games in and some models painted.
So while I have a multitude of projects I could be working on, I've decided to try and get the marines even closer to completion so that I can properly claim that the chapter is finished. To that end, I have just finished painting up the magnetised weapon options for my devastator centurion units :) The effort was relatively simple, but it works well enough.
So I recently took a bunch of photos of the infantry component of the chapter as it currently stands. Here's a gallery of the photos.
I've also just finished painting another 24 odd bolters for tactical squads, so getting closer and closer to true completion.
So I finished painting a bunch of hatches for the rhinos and decided to take a group shot of the vehicles :)
So I've finally gotten around to gluing some bolters I've painted recently on to marines. I think these guys are the last of my devastator marines, so just tactical marines to go for bolters, some sternguard for special bolters and some devastator centurion weapons.
Meanwhile, I've started work on a new army that is also gold...you'd think I'd be sick of gold by now lol.
That's right. The finest warriors the Imperium has to offer. Space marines? Pfft, they are second rate compared to these guys :) I'm also using this opportunity to try out Vallejo Liquid Old Gold as it has been highly recommended by several people I talk with regularly about painting.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
