Unboxing Lorgar

First of all this won't be a regular thing. But i figure I got mine early so I thought I would do a quick write up for anyone considering taking the plunge. 

I love the boxes this models come in. Makes it feel like you have bought something special. 

Two large bases. A gaming base 40mm and a 60mm display base. 

How awesome is this base... I'll be using it for my Eldar spiritseer. 

What a beautiful model. I'll be replacing the head of mine purely because I don't like his face. I DONT LIKE YOUR FACE LORGAR!

But look at the detail. That's a primarch right there!

And finally a terrible shaky scale comparison. Yeah have fun with that. 

Get this model it's an absolute beast. 
Thanks for reading :)

My current projects! Pic heavy.

You may have seen a brief glimpse of my Tau army flashing up on eBay... and everywhere. I got board and threw it up without thinking. After my 5th email about better pictures within 20mins of it going live I thought I better re-think :)

So here's Some decent pictures of the army and a few misc stuff I'm working on.

A WIP from a tutorial I'm working on! Great fun coming back to these models months after they were released.

The start of next years GD entry? Read a great article about entering GD over on Massive Voodoo. I'm entering to loose for the next couple of years then ill be coming out swinging!

Super fun commission for a new client.

My Tau Army, Soon to be re-listed on eBay, watch this space for the posting.

Thanks for watching!

First of many Armies on parade sales. THE BOARD.

So this thing is just too big to sit in my flat. It says pickup only but if you buy it and want it delivered and dont mind paying then I am sure we can come to some sort of arrangement.

Thanks for watching

Painting metals with metallic paint

One of the things I was told by the eavy metal team that did the feedback on my howling griffons model is that I need to work on my metals. So I've set about teaching myself real matallic metals. Personally nmm (non metallic metals) never really look right to me. Always leave a lot to be desired even if done to an amazing level. But the same techniques applied with metallic paints have a great result.

Howling Griffons: Freehand banner

I have a full rundown on exactly my steps are for painting the howling griffon and how to make and paint the banner that I am currently working on, but unfortunately no time to sort and write up the tutorial on it! So here are a few pics to whet your appetite for when it appears.

Here is the banner for my howling griffons at around 90% done, needs final glazes for highlights and shadow but basically its all there, and my chapter master. I want all my models helmetless and beardy and grizzled.

C&C always welcome and appreciated!

And finally my sketches for the banner, I drew it a few times to make sure I could do it justice at such small scale. If I couldn't draw it with a pencil I knew I would struggle with a paintbrush. 

thanks for watching!
