Da Red Gobbo!

It’s always fun when we get a miniature that is slightly odd but loads of fun!

I remember, quite fondly, the Red Gobba from Gorkamorka, and decided to give him a quick paint job in his new plastic form!

Rein and Raus – Heroes of the Imperium

It has been suggested in some dark corners of the galaxy that Rein and Raus are somehow no longer loyal to the Emperor, and that they may have questionable loyalties.

This is obviously “fake news”, as these two brave adventurers are on a mission to “liberate” technology in the name of the Imperium. Sure, they may end up slightly wealthier for their efforts, and they may have gone a little AWOL to do so, but no one can doubt their skill, and they are obviously the GREATEST adventurers to grace the Blackstone Fortress!

Black Legion Chaos Lord

I don’t get much time to paint this time of year, but I have managed to “quickly” paint a Chaos Lord up for a friend’s birthday. I say quick, I am that busy at the moment this took me about a month.

I have actually painted this miniature once before, and I decided to mix it up a little bit, and changed the colour scheme a smidge.

Chaos Knight Desecrator

I have finished my first Knight Desecrator. Coming up for my own scheme and Knightly house hold has been really fun, and if you have been tempted by one of these kits I strongly recommend getting one. They are really good fun!

As fun as this mini has been, I had to rush it a little towards the end. I am not happy with the skull on his Ion Shield, and the base is just a very perfunctory effort. When I get chance I plan on revisiting these areas. But I have learnt a lot, and generally speaking I am happy with him.

Knight Desecrator – WIP 7

Nearly there! This is the last blu-tac picture before I finish the big guy off. Been quite the slog this!

Knight Desecrator – WIP 6

Well, the majority of the body work and base painting is done. I am now up to the transfers/heraldry stage. I am currently jotting down sketches for the house emblem, and looking for general inspiration!

Knight Desecrator – WIP 5

Even though I have got a lot of this guy done now, I still need to paint the top panels properly, and then I need to do the shoulder pads. I am still to come up with a “house” logo, and I am not sure how best to do all the markings all over him.  Anyway, here are some pics so far.

Knight Desecrator – WIP 4

Not had loads of time to work on the Knight recently, but I have started the metal work on the gun arm. I am still mulling over the heraldry. I have an idea for it, but I need to sketch it out and then do a few dry runs of painting it.

Knight Desecrator – WIP 3

So this is the big guy so far. Still very much a work in progress, I am happy with the colour scheme in general, but I am basically thinking about the livery and such like. Thinking along the lines of something ghostly, but not sure.

Knight Desecrator – WIP 2

Well, taking pics of semi built and painted Chaos Knights is a little dull. But I have made a start on his head. I need to tidy up the OSL glow from the eyes, and paint his teeth and such, but it’s a cool head.
