I have just finished painting a Mutalith Vortex Beast for my Thousand Sons.
As with most of my gaming pieces these days, I decided to build this model fully before painting. However, I realised how much of a mistake it was when it came to the portal, and the tentacles, so had to pry them off. Tricky model to paint this, but happy with the results given it is a gaming piece.
Truth is, this lot have been on my desk in a near finished state for ages, but between the heat and my new job, painting time has been limited. Last night I decided to finish their bases off and clear them off the painting table.
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.
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”.
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.
