I painted the one on left(no rockets) just over

2 yrs ago in the traditional faded blue colour.

Basically, Macragge Blue, Drakenhof Nighshade,

Altdorf Guard and Calgar Blue.

This a gives a dusty, weathered blue look and I did a basic job.

The newer Landspeeder is more in the modern blue/purple look that

Ultramarines are going. Colour wise its roughly Kantor Blue,Altdorf

Guard and Fenrisian Grey.

This for me is a more an experimental colour as it involves mixing

3 basic colours with each other to get darker and lighter shades

of blue. So much so, I would find it hard to get an exact match again.

I have improved detail wise but I like the old dusty, weathered looking

Ultramarine style to the newer clean look.

Which do you prefer ?

Two more Iron Warriors to join the growing horde

of Chaos darkness. These two were originally possible

Warsmith candidates but failed the audition process.

Looks like they will have to join the HQ posse 🙂

As per usual click on the piccy for a larger version 🙂

More Iron Warriors coming including the rhino 🙂

Came across a metal Ork Nob, painted very badly,in
one of a large number of dust covered boxes I have.
He originally came with a mace and axe and I
suspected him to be more Warhammer fantasy than 40k,
but on checking he appears in Orks Collectors Guide
as part of the classic range. Saying that I still suspect
he has a very close twin look a like in the fantasy range ?

Anyway removed the axe and mace(replaced with shoota in each
hand),added a boss pole made from spare parts and plasticard,
added additional armour(back plate and jaw plate) and put
him on a jazzed on base.

Now he looks like an Ork moving up in the world of
Ork hierarchy until somebody bigger rips of his arms
and hangs them on their own boss pole.

Been busy of late and finally finished these guys.

£5 off ebay plus 99p post and packaging and all still

attached to the sprue. Anyway what seemed like an easy

Terminator paint became rather slow and tedious due to

the large amount of tiny detail on these models. Well done

GW on making such high quality kit but its hell to paint.

Anyway hope you like them ?

The basic colour is a Tamiya white base coat with a couple

of Ushabti Bone dry brushes. The red is a build up of Mephiston

Red, Evil Sunz scarlet and Wild rider red. The Green is Caliban

Green, Warpstone and then Moot.

These guys having been sitting in the bottom of a box for months

and it was time to finish them off.

Five beaky space marines in a Blood Angels theme.

Enjoy.
