Yet another pic dump

Here we go again with a pic dump:

I got the khorne side of the small starter completed:

I also grabbed the slaughterpriest off the new WD. The mag itself didn't really do anything for me, but the model's nice.

He's huge though, something like 40 mm to his eyes I think. GW's deffo left 28mm scale behind, or this guy has been eating growth hormones like there's no tomorrow.

PanO got a drone, too:

Aaaaand done.

Right, another post.

This'll likely just be a picture dump, so here we go:

Bam. I'm rather enjoying the loaded brush technique I'm using on the skin here. Might start using it other places too.

Inq28 returns

Hello everybody who reads this ( assuming anyone actually does so). :P

Update time, this time with Inq28. I've wanted to finish off some old projects lately, so I figured these would be a good place to start.
I just needed the inquisitor/witch hunter himself done:

And with him done, the gang is more or less ready, bar the red-coated PDF officer I can't seem to find, and the rebasing on the fanatic with lasrifle in the back:

Now I just need to find someone to play with, but there's mutterings of Inq at the club...

I also had Archaeon lying about, and have gotten a bit further with him:

Obviously still quite WIP, but he's getting closer and he's fun to paint. He's a proper beast too, the model is MASSIVE.

Lastly, the Order Sergeant sniper continues to bug me. I've dropped him, worn paint off, mis-glued his arm, and scraped paint off more times that I care to recall, so now he's just getting a quick paintjob and some varnish. I really have lost my patience with him, which is a shame since it's a nice little model.

From Norway this time

It's been a while but I've finally gotten off my behind and taken more pics.

The DE Executioners are finally entirely done:

I'm quite pleased with these, though I've accidentally used two different purples on them. It's less visible in person, so I'm not too fussed.
They've got to be one of my favorite classical units from Fantasy, the sculpts are really well done.

In the far (and shiny) future, De Fersen has been completed:

The folds in his tabard are somewhat darker IRL, it's the lighting setup I've got that messes with that.

Again, I'm happy with how he turned out. I was unsure about the red/blue balance, and if he'd look out of place in a PanO force that's mainly blue like mine, but I think he works.

I've started work on one of his buddies as well:
This guy, however, has been a mess from the get-go. I've rubbed off paint, had it splatter, dropped him and the rifle-arm kept slipping off because the superglue would. not. harden.

I'll be happy if he just turns out ok at this rate.

And finally something I started because I wanted to practise my blacks:

It's the old Archaeon LE model, and he's a right beast. Really look forward to getting a completed paintjob on him.

An update from Sweden, for the last time

I'm on my last week of work-related courses in Sweden, and brought some pictures with me so I could post the weekends work from here.

I've completed the unit of Shades for ninth I got from Maelstrom a while back, and these old models were surprisingly fun to paint:

More DE will come, hopefully soonish. The tabards and coats have turned out blue in the pic however, they're quite a bit more purple in colour.

I also got a bit further with my ongoing quest to reduce the infinity stockpile, as De Fersen got closer to being finished:
with only the sword, freehand and basework to do now,

And an Ariadnan Marauder who got painted up real quick:

I'm quite pleased with the result on the Marauder, the Ariadna scheme I've found lends itself well to speedpainting I find.

More epic and infinity

Been busy lately as always, but I've gotten a bit done nonetheless.

I finished building a scratchbuilt Sicaran (because the model is great, but I've neither the room nor use for a 28mm version), and got a mould made.

The first cast turned out poorly, with the lower part of one track unit missing, so I made a quick objective:

Eventually, I plan to have 2 armoured units of 4, then grab some marine proxies somewhere that can be converted to look like 30k marines, and play some heresy.

Infinity remains the biggest draw, however!

I've just taken part in my first tourney, and it was FUN. Met some great people (who beat me senseless for the most part), and had a blast.

I wound up playing Ariadna as I didn't want to play with unpainted models, but the PanO lure was strong - my aim is to get a tourney capable list up and running soonish.
To this end, I've painted a bit:

Anonymous Order Sgt no 34812902. Gives an order, occasionally deploys with TO camo in the midfield.

Bulleteer Armbot with spitfire, still heavily WiP. Fun little model, but I'm really struggling with the blue for some reason.

And finally:

Everyones favorite former Templar, Gabriele de Fersen. FUN model to paint. Really fun.

'till next,
