Well, I had the chance to break out the old light box and camera this afternoon and did my best to take some decent photographs of the Gal Vorbak!

I now have four more Possessed Chaos Space Marines to complete then I have a few options open to me. I have the majority of the Dark Vengeance Chaos models to paint. But I also have Space Hulk, chaos lord and sorcerer to convert and loads of other stuff…

… You never really finish painting your army do you!

I really need more daylight lamps to make the light box work for me as well as it could. But for now these will have to do!

Well, the final Gal Vorbak has been completed!

I have to be honest, this is the worst of the bunch. The details on the face (the other side of the one in the picture) was pretty bad. It really brought my enthusiasm down for what was my favourite miniature out of the five.

Still, they are done! I just have three more possessed models to finish, then I have a clean slate, will need to pick a new project!

Little more work has been done on the final Gal Vorbak.

I have to admit the face on this guy is really annoying. I am not sure if the detail around his mouth is so fine that I have cack-handedly ruined it, or if it is slightly miscast. Rest of the model is really nice, just the face.

Anyway, nearly done, no idea what comes next after this guy!

Hot on the heels of my previous Gal Vorbak, work has already begun on the final member of the squad, the champion.

I actually use these guys as Chaos Spawn for my Word Bearers in 40k. I’ve never played 30k, but I really hope the rules in that system do the models justice.

I need to finish his base but this is the fourth Gal Vorbak done and dusted! Just one more to go and then I get to start a new project. Either the Space Hulk terminators or even more Chaos stuff!

I may revisit this guy in the future, just touch his horns up a little and maybe his legs. It;’s been a few weeks since I put paint to brush and I have lost my edge a little bit!

It’s been quite a while since I have had enough time to spend on these guys, I also got quite a lot of new minis for Christmas which have been drawing my attention away from them! Still, I don’t like starting a new project before finishing the old one.

Quite happy with him so far, really love these models so despite the new stuff appealing to me, this doesn’t feel like a chore at all!
