Magnus the Red (30K Edition!)

During the most recent lock down due to COVid-19, I have taken to painting up miniatures I have had for ages, but not got round to it. One of which was the 30K version of everyone’s favourite Primarch, Magnus the Red.

I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with this model. For a start it is excellently sculpted, and the pose is suitably dynamic, and lets be honest, it’s Magnus, so he is brilliant.

However I hate painting resin, even Forge World’s very high quality resin has been spoilt by just how good Citadel plastic miniatures are. Some of the details on resin figures just don’t come out well in the production process (specifically the very fine detail), and it’s kind of infuriating because it makes painting certain elements of it a chore.

Still, the best Primarch ever has yet another space in my display cabinet!

Cawdor Headsman

I have very quickly painted up the Cawdor Headsman. Love this model. Some of the detail was a little ropey on my version, but it’s a great miniature.

Classic Gotrek and Felix

I have had quite the trip down memory lane during the current lock down. Not only did I paint Aenur, I have also dug out the original Gotrek and Felix models.  These guys are classics, and whilst they were fun to paint, you really do get a sense of how much miniature making has come along.

Aenur – The Sword of Twilight

Every now and then, an old model from my youth jumps out at me from the past, and I decide I have to paint it. Aenur is one such model. I remember getting this miniature free on the front of White Dwarf when Mordheim came out. I have now finally got round to painting him.

Ogroid Myrmidon

I have recently finished the fantastic Ogroid Myrmidon. Every now and then a model comes along that I know I have to paint. And this is one such model.

The Wurmspat

I have had a little break from painting recently, but found my mojo again the other day, and managed to finish off the Wurmspat from Warhammer Underworlds. Love these models and they fit very nicely into my Maggotkin Army!

It’s always off with a model like this.  I always want to do that little bit more with it, but it is a gaming piece. So it’s knowing when to stop. Cracking model though!

Word Bearers Squad

So, this is the first squad of my new Word Bearers force. Looking forward to spending a bit more time with this paint scheme on a character soon (maybe when it isn’t so damn warm!)

Here is the same squad but on different backgrounds!

Word Bearers Sorcerer

I have had this model built and undercoated ready to be painted since he came out. And I have finally got round to popping a quick lick of paint on him!

I love the model, but I am not sure he has a place in my 9th edition Word Bearers army, so I haven’t spent too much time on him.

Indomitus Captain

This is the  captain I painted from the Indomitus set. I still need to fix the energy effects on the sword and shield. but pretty happy with him.
 
Amazing model!
