Dark Eldar Haemonculus

I have finished the generic Haemonculus for my Dark Eldar.

This is a gaming piece, so to stop myself going to far down the rabbit hole with the paint job I did two things.

  1. I completely built the model before I painted it. It made the process trickier, but it turned out okay.
  2. I gave myself a day to paint it. I tried this recently with two miniatures, and I was happy with the result, so decided to stick with it.

 

I have Urien Rakarth for my army, but the fact that he is a resin model fills me with sadness. 🙁

Talos Pain Engine

I’m still pressed for time when it comes to painting, I have a lot going on that takes my attention away from the hobby. However, I have had this pain Engine in a half complete state for a while, and I managed to get it finished this morning.

Dark Eldar Wracks

I have had very little time to paint recently, but I have had a half finished unit of Wracks sat on my table for a while now, so decided to get them finished.

Kamoteph the Crooked

The new Warhammer store anniversary models are out this week in the UK,  and I have managed to paint them up. I only had a day to paint each one, so I decided to do a quick job in the most part, and focus on a specific thing to make “look good”.

With Kamoteph I chose his staff of light! 😀

Home Brew Chapter – Sons of the Raven

I have been working on a few miniatures recently, with a view to designing my own chapter.  And this is one such mini.

Briefly, the idea behind the chapter is that it is a Raven Guard successor chapter, and it was all but wiped out. With the arrival of the Primaris marines, the Chapter has a shot at survival. However things haven’t quite gone to plan, as many of the wargear and resources have not made it to their home world, and the Raven Guard have a history of unstable geneseed….

 

I am not 100% certain on the name. I chose sons of the Raven because they were allegedly wiped out, and I like the idea. But I was tempted with “Sons of the Crow”. Anyway. the basic thoughts are bumbling about in my brain.

Dark Eldar Kabalites

I love Dark Eldar, and I have recently been painting up some Kabalite warriors to go in my army. If it weren’t for some dastardly vampires, I would still be painting Dark ELdar!

Ultramarines Captain Uriel Ventris

I have painted up the new Uriel Ventris model.

This is an odd model. I am not saying it is bad, because that isn’t true, and wouldn’t be fair. But it just seems like an “odd riff” on a Primaris marine. The shoes are a bit squared off, and the gold trim is pretty unique for a loyalist marine (that memory serves). Again, it isn’t bad, just different.

Thousand Sons Psychic Dreadnought (Daemon Prince)

I have completed my third and Final Daemon Prince for my Thousand Sons. I wanted to have models that kept the style of the Thousand Sons, whilst also looking suitable for their role on the table top.

The theme of the three princes was to have one with very little corruption, almost a rubric prince. The second (this one) to show a little corruption, and the final one to be mega corrupted.

Anyway, here he is.

Here is the three of them in “order”:

Fabius Bile

I have finally got round to painting the New Fabius Bile model. He has been a bit of a favourite of mine since the Mark Gibbons artwork (posted at the bottom of this article).

I wanted to achieve a contrast on this model between Fabius’ skin coat, and his own actual flesh. He is so riddled with the Blight, that I wanted his flesh coat to have a more vibrant skin colour than his living flesh.  It’s a great new model and a lot of fun to paint. I would have liked some faces on his skin coat, but that’s my one and only small gripe!

Daemonifuge: Ephrael Stern and Kyganil

I have recently completed Ephrael Stern and Kyganil. I am a big fan of the graphic novels, so painting these two was loads of fun.
