Primaris Marine Schemes (Part 1)

(or Isn't white primer technically a "paint scheme")

GW was kind enough to provide a blank to work from!
I gave in - I tried to not order the boxed set, but I did - and now I have a bunch more models inbound. Now the tough part becomes assembling the paints I need and developing a paint scheme that I'll enjoy painting a whole new army in!

Gaming Table - Part 1

(or leave it to me to over-engineer something!)

Yes, that is a scale model of a frame for my gaming table... why do you ask?

Primaris and current chapters

Let's be honest... all of us Space Marine players are in awe of the Primaris Marines and what it can mean...  Closer to True-scale??  Yes, please!

Primaris Smurfs, FTW!

The real problem for me is that I am stuck in the Rogue Trader Mk 6 era.

Back to the Blog

(or have I neglected it for a whole 3 months?)

Yes, yes I have...
So with that it is time to get back to this Blog and update everyone on what has gone on!

30k Imperial Fists - Breachers

(or Thank God for Black... I may not lose my mind, yet!)

Breacher sample part way through painting

My breachers are getting closer.  The test model took a while longer to paint than I expected.  Here is a quick overview of the colors and plans

Display Case - Progress - Pt 2

(or Why not have an unpainted display case for my unpainted miniatures?)

An unpainted display for a half-painted army?
I've made a little progress with my display case over the past few months.  Cork walls with wood dowel reinforcements have been assembled as the fortification curtain walls.  They are modular allowing me to remove them in sections, and to access the cable pass-through that is hidden behind the central platform.

When I was looking for a good way to create some gothic-looking balconies to display figures on, I remembered that I had some of the Syberclicks terrain set that fit the bill perfectly.

I still haven't decided about the upper balconies - whether to put the miniatures behind the windows, or to simply place the windows flat against the outer wall with "stained glass" behind them.  I guess a little experimentation will be in order once I paint the wall itself!

Alternative Tech Priest

(or Say, what's in the AoS bits box over there??)

That's right 40k fans - I used an AoS Stormcast Eternal as the base model for my "Alternatively Styled" Tech Priest Dominus!

<insert cries of "Heresy" here>

Well now that we got that out of our system, let's see what I did to build this guy...
