WIP: Dark Angels Standard Bearer

Hey all. I've got a bit more done on the Dark Angels Standard Bearer. At this stage I have finished the general sculpting of the banner shape and have given it a thin coat of black so I can spot the areas that need a little light smoothing. I think I'l also re-shape the tabs holding the banner to it's pole a little.

After that I'll be getting on with the really fun bit. Freehand painting the banner design. Oh! and attaching his other arm and backpack too.

WIP: Blood Angels Mk4 Assault Squad #5

Hey guys, I've finished another two models for my (now no longer a troop choice) Assault Squad. Thanks for all the input for the blonde hair. In the end I went with a basecoat of Averland Sunset, a wash of Army Painter Soft Tone Ink (Gryphonne Sepia) in the recesses, and highlights of P3 Menoth White Base (Ushabti Bone) and Menoth White Highlight (mix of white and Screaming Skull). It's a nice comic book blonde, yet it's different enough from the yellow helmets and knee pads. Two more models to complete, stay tuned! How do you like them?

WIP: A dark Tau project

Hey folks! I'm back after a week of ill health with a brand new little project to share with you.

Here you see a most 'armless Tau Crisis Battlesuit. It's primed black with a very dark grey/blue zenithal highlight done with the airbrush. So. this is going to be a darkly toned Tau with some (hopefully) nice contrating spot colouration. The theme for this model will become apparent as I progress. But for now readers. I have a question for you.

I'm not going to be magnetising this model in any way. It's purely an experimental display model. So what weapon loadout would you folks like to see on this guy?

Tutorial: How to paint Blood Angels

Hey guys, we published this tutorial a while ago, but to celebrate the release of the new Blood Angel models we thought it might be a good idea to bring it back to the front page. Originally, this tutorial was created by a reader's request, and it also served as the blue print for painting my Mk4 assault squad. Click "More after the jump" and learn in an extensive step by step tutorial how I painted the model above (and learn my recipes for a deep vibrant red and yellow).

WIP: Tyranid Genestealers

A quick WIP post to show some Space Hulk Genestealers I'm painting. These are for my Hive Fleet, so I've based them on 25mm bases and I'm painting them in my own colour scheme. If you have a spare couple of minutes, why not click this link and check out my free painting tutorials for 5 different tyranid schemes.
