Epic Titans

Another random project I have going on, I won a warlord for "cheap" on eBay, and that began my slow descent into addiction.

Two warhounds followed, obviously, so then I needed another 6! I also bought a reaver and a second warlord (which hasn't arrived yet). 

These three were painted to test the scheme. I've always loved the Legio Gryphonicus colour scheme on the Lucius pattern Titans. 

The scheme is actually relatively quick and easy to do, involving a lot of glazes and washes. 

They also make me want to get a 28mm scale warlord . . .

I'm not sure what the eventual plan for these is, they may be sold to fund renovations on my house, including a new man cave to remove toys and paints from the reach of tiny hands. If anyone's interested drop me an email, or comment, I would ofcourse finish them all before sale.

Also if anyone has FW epic reaver Titans hidden away Id like a few more ;)

*also I'm sure you noticed the missing shin armour on the warlord, it was sold to me with two left shins!? In waiting for the second to arrive so I can do a quick cast of the shin armour*

Thanks for looking

Finished (sculpting) Mhara gal

So here's the finished product, except for some gs tubes coming  out of his sides. I've been waiting for a tentacle maker to arrive in the post. 

I found some soul grinder components in my bitz box a added them to the fist, this I think suits the rules a lot better and continues the corruption theme nicely. 

The back is fairly unadorned, I just had a lack of ideas as to how to dress it up, so a random growth was all that was added. 

Dead marine and the plasma cannon arm were the last pieces to be completed quite happy with how "dead" the dead marine looks. 

This guy is now quite large, transport will be a problem for sure, but I'm really happy with he turned out, I just hope that he's worth the points cost and performs on the table at Inferno 2.

Thanks for looking.

Word bearer tacticals

More Word Bearers!

These are the WIP pictures of the second tactical squad, the three with bases were used during the Inferno tournament and so they jumped the queue. 

The rest of these are finished up to the point of needing varnish, which ofcourse I have run out of, or misplaced in a move. I just need to finish their bases so they can all be varnished in a batch. 

The next batch of 9, will finish both current squads to 15 man each, and complete the compulksory troops selections for the armylist I'm planning on running at Inferno II.

Quite a short post today, but I had these pics in my phone for a while and thought I could throw them up to show that there is still movement on the painting front. I'm trying desperately not to get motivated to do a Cults and Militia army using the new Genestealer cult models, but I can feel my willpower failing!

Thanks for looking.

Best modeling project ever!

The last couple of weeks have been extremely hectic and intense. 

With great excitement I can announce the birth of my first child, Amara Rose. 

Born at 0844, on the 3rd weighing 3.51kgs (7p12oz old scale) via caesarean. 

Both mum and bub are doing well, with no complications during the delivery. 

Amara is an amazing baby, so well behaved and quiet, we're both completely smitten. 

This development in my life will ofcourse slow down the hobby output, but I still hope to finish my word bearers this year, and a couple other projects on the go.
