10,000 Hit Painting Celebration!

Hey guys!
Bruce here with an update about a little celebration we had after hitting 10,000 blog views.
We all decided to take a new model (from any game system) that we liked and paint it up in just 4 weeks.

Lets have a look as see what we got:

Bruce - Pirate Queen (Reaper Bones Minis)

"The day after we decided to do this painting challenge, a handfull of us went to the NEC Gamesday Convention and spent waaay too much money on Poke'mon cards and collectables. As we are in the throws of a new D&D Campaign, I decided to pick up some Reaper Bones minis, and this was my favourite of the bunch. I'm incorporating her into our current campaign, "Lilly the Skull, swashbuckler, rum drinker and noted ner' do well!". I've never painted a Reaper model before, and the strange rubbery plastic they use felt very different to my usual metal or resin paint projects. I'm very happy with her though, there's something very satisfying about painting bright colourful minis, so a Pirate queen was a great excuse to break out the vibrant greens and blues that never get used in my normal Grim-Dark projects."

Sam - Magneto (Knights Models)

 "I have chosen to paint up Magneto from Knights Models for my challenge model. I have eagerly awaited getting this model as he is one of my favourite characters from the series and was delighted when they released rules for him. Painting him was not too challenging, most of my effort went into the cape and blending the purple (a colour I do not usually work with) i also kept with my theme of not inking my marvel Miniatures (a small challenge I set myself as I had become too comfortable with inks recently) he is rather imposing floating above his base and I look forward to using him in some games alongside the rest of my X-men."

Martin - Karandras (Games Workshop)

Comments: Awhile back, Sam challenged me to a HQ off. Having bought all the phoenix lords to make a complete set of Eldar HQ's I just needed to get them all painted so what better a reason to pick my favourite looking of all the phoenix lords. I was extremely happy with how it came out and found painting him to be so much fun.

Damien - Thanos (Knights Models)

Comments: "Hey folks Damien here. Thought I'd have a go at Knights Model's Thanos for my project. Lots of fun to paint and a good practice as yellow is always a tricky one to pull off."

Paul - Crimson Raptors Captain (Games Workshop)

Comments:
 "I bought this model from Gamesday about 5 years ago, intending to use it as a Chapter Master for my home-brew Crimson Raptors chapter. Sadly the project never happened because some pesky Orks invaded my painting table ..."


Jamie #1 - Gambit {Death, Horseman of Apocalypse} (Knights Models)
Before:



After:



Comments: "This model was good fun to paint, I got the idea to paint Gambit as Apocalypse's vassal 'Death' as I will be using him along side my Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. I don't do much painting, so it took me quite some time to achieve a standard I was happy with. I can't wait to use him on the tabletop with his soon-to-be painted Evil Mutant buddies."

Jack - Soldiers (Bolt Action)
Before:



After:



Comments:"Kelly and Big Joe reporting for duty! I really enjoyed painting these miniatures from Kelly's heroes to go with my bolt action force. These are the first models I have painted for bolt action and I am very pleased with how they have turned out!"

Jamie #2 -
Before:

After:




Comments: "I had been so afraid of tackling this model mainly because I wanted to do Horus in white armour instead of the black.  The detail on this model is fantastic and I think is one of the best Primarch models to date. "

Comments: Matt paint lot space marine. This not space marine. This knight. Matt like paint knight. Is horse with wings"


Charles - Genestealer Patriarch (Games Workshop)
Before:





After:


Comments: "I chose to paint my Genestealer Patriarch from the Deatwatch Overkill box set. I love this model for all the beautiful detail, which GW are doing a really good job with at the moment. I chose to use a red paint scheme for the carapace to match my Tyranid army plus the usual bone flesh. I have used him in a tournament recently and he does not disappoint with his psychic and combat skills. He is basically a steroid pumped Broodlord. I'm hoping GW does a separate Genestealer Cult codex like they have recently for Deathwatch."

Death korps of Krieg

Hello everyone, Sam here, it has been a while since I have posted on here and wanted to share what I have been working on. My first loyalist (shudder) army. Also my first guard army. 
Over the past 10 months or so I have been slowly building and painting a Death Korps of Krieg army using the seige of Vraaks book. I have been attempting a unit a week but like we all do my attention and attitude towards painting blows hot and cold.
I was origionally drawn to Krieg due to their post apocalyptic / menacing appearance and thought that they would be perfect for a renegades army. However the more that I read and planned the army, the more interested in the Krieg themselves that I became. This lead me to my first order of death riders and the other more krieg units. This is not to say that i wont experiment with renegades as i have found some wicked looking zombie krieg models that I may incorperate in the future. I expect this army to play in a totally different style to those I currently use …

30K army and first outing for the iron warriors

Hey guys, Sam here wanting to share a little about the progress of my iron warriors and my first heresy game in 6 months!
About a year ago I began collecting a pre-heresy Salamander army. I Enjoyed playing it and took it to a few events. Then I read Angel Exterminatus, Iron Warriors omnibus and Storm of Iron. This persuaded me to abandon the green armoured emperor loving pansies and begin a legion with real metal! in the words of The D: "you can't kill the metal!"

Iron Warriors really appealed to me because they struck me as a legion which could be used for dual purpose as well as having a lot of components that I like. I run these as chaos marines as well as pre heresy marines. Their pragmatism and seige warfare is cool as well as them being undivided, so I can run them with either daemon army :)
So my army as it stands is around 6000 points with Perturabo (next order) and I am nearly at the end of a collection. There are a few units here and there but overall I think I…

Super Dungeon Explore!

Hey all, Bruce here with yet another side project I'm working on.


I've recently found myself the proud owner of both the original Super Dungeon Explore board game and the more recent Super Dungeon Explore V2; The Forgotten King.

For those of you who have never seen / played Super Dungeon Explore, it plays like a classic dungeon crawler (think Space Crusade or Hero Quest) but with an adorable Chibi-style anime theme. The game started off as a kick-starter project by "Soda Pop Miniatures" and they are working on a kick-starter for a third game to release at the end of the year.



I came across this game purely by chance, rummaging around the Firestorm Games Store in Cardiff whilst Sam, Charles, Jamie #2 and I were attending the Vale Renegades' most recent tourney which was hosted there. As I was rooting through all the amazing board games, collectables and miniatures I found a little box with a single mini in it. The "Tabbybrook Mage". The model caught my e…
