So, having had my Word Bearers published in Warhammer Visions this month (my copy has still to turn up in the post :( ) you may expect me to be on a Word Bearers high!

Well, surprisingly the first thing I have painted is some Ultramarines!

I had done a small squad of five some time ago, and to me it felt like an unfinished squad. So I decided to add the final five with sergeant and the special weapons. Now, I know they don’t look particularly great, but I converted the normal chain swords to be larger ones to represent both of them having eviscerators. I do actually have a box or two of the new assault marines, but I didn’t want the old ones to go to waste, and yeah, thought I would quickly give it a go. They look too big for just one hand, in hindsight I should have gone a step further and converted them to be holding them two handed.

Oh well!

The second renegade psyker is finished!

I haven’t put as much time into this guy as I did the floating variant. Out of the two, this is my least favourite and I really just bought the blister for his airborne brother. However I did enjoy painting this chap much more than I thought I would, and I have been sufficiently enthused enough to want to start a renegade force in the future. Albeit just a small one to go along side my Chaos Marines.

Sometimes I buy a miniature simply to paint. I imagine many of you lot are the same. However I have to admit, right now the model on the left of this picture is probably my favourite miniature.

I can’t tell you why, I just knew the minute I saw it many years ago that I had to own and paint it. Well recently a trip to Warhammer World finally allowed me to purchase it!

There are loads of models I have bought purely because I thought they looked rad as hell, but I honestly think the floating Chaos Psyker has to be the top. There’s a few out there that compete with it, but if I had to sit and choose one, this would be it.

Anyone else have a model they bought purely to own it!?
