Contemptor PIP

Updates are coming thick and fast these days, going to stop soon though. Anyway, got some work done on the contemptor for the Sons.

They had been put on ice for a while due to the nids getting some love, but I put paint to model today in a fit of procrastination.

As you can see, hes not as clean as DPA's SoH, I just couldn't get excited by that style of painting, hes in the middle of the seige of terra, there isn;t going to be time to reapply paint to chipping.

This is obviously still PIP.

Let me know what you think, and any suggestions you may have will be greatly appreciated.

WIP Harpy

Is it a bird, is it a plane, no its a flying monstrous creature!

As Rictus guessed in the last entry, the mystery model is a harpy.

Warrior Prime

Been bitten by the bug again (pun intended) and have cranked out a new HQ for my swarm. This guy is set up with scy tals and 2x boneswords to murder characters in challenges.

Hive Guard painting tut

Hi everyone, here's the second half of my hive guard build series. Painting, for many years I used GW black undercoat for EVERYTHING! however recently, since I started using an airbrush mostly, I have been using Tamiya grey surface primer. It still comes from a rattle can, however the colour is much easier to lay lighter coloured paints over, which is especially handy for my nid scheme.

Hive Guard

Hi everybody; long time between posts.
Unfortunately I haven't made much progress on my SoH, uni and life have been getting in the way of my much more important hobby activities.
I did however get to play in QM 3 over last weekend, and as usual it was a well run event, and I had a great time catching up with mates and playing some games of 40k.
I was lucky enough to win players choice again with my nids

And best painted went to my good friend John, and his amazingly painted Carcarodons space marines. He has a blog HERE which I recommend you go check out, he's a very prolific and quality painter.
