Hi everyone, Aurélie here, I'm back. I had a lot of fun painting the really Great Brass Scorpion from Forge World! The assembling process took some time, because I had to find out how to magnetize the legs and weapons for better transport. Actually I found out that magnetizing the legs isn’t a good idea, because it’s nearly impossible to determine the required position, so that the model stands steady and stable. But at least it’s easy to magnetize the weapons. After the jump more pictures and a short painting guide.


Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore—
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
“’Tis some visitor,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door—
Purge the Xenos, nothing more.

Hey guys, we're facing some problems with our blog's template. In a few days, everything should be back to normal, so don't worry about the missing features on the right.

Unfortunately we also lost all the blogs in the Tale of Painters Blog Network that joined before May 2016. We would love to welcome back all blogs, so if you used to be a part of the network, please head over the Blog Network page and resubmit a link to your blog in the comments section. Over the next days and weeks we'll frequently check the Network page so we can bring you back to the list as soon as possible.


The first batch of Banshees is almost done, just a few details here and there like gems and highlighting the brass. Painting these ones has been a blast so far, haven't had that much fun working on a unit of models in a while. Each Aspect Warrior squad allows you to come up with a completely new paint scheme, and while there is a rough guide line of which colour is assigned to which Aspect, there is a lot of room for your own personal touches. What do you think?


I already have a small collection of Blood Angels, so I really like it when I paint a Deathwatch marine from that parent Chapter. This guy is just like painting Death Company marine. I'm actually painting him at the same time as the other assault marine in the Overkill boxset, so expect a WIP post of Edryc Setorax the Raven Guard Vanguard Veteran soon.
