Some New Work, And some old….ish

These are some minis I’ve shown off in my last post in this one, but I’ve shot these in my light box and wanted to show them off. Still working out my photo setup to get it just right but I feel like these came out decently well. These are my models I’ve completed recently. I’ve also completed a Predator tank and I’m currently in the middle of painting a Sniper scout squad. I will have photos of those up soon.

As for what’s to come, I just got a Triumvirate of the Primarch box that my parents got me as a gift. I’m super excited to see those models painted up in person. Roboute Guilliman is an amazing model. I really didn’t dig his pose he had until I saw him in person. He’s very menacing and commanding looking, perfect for the lord commander of the Imperium. We can’t forget Grand Master Voldus and Cypher, they are going to be so fun to paint. AND, I  also got a land speeder storm for my scouts and a Stormtalon gunship. So I’ve got my work cut out for me for a while. Stay tuned for some oh so sweet hobby progress in the weeks and months to come.

A note on the above Techmarine: This model is from my original Imperial Fists army that I played in High school. He was painted terrible and his axe was broken in half. So what I did was strip this guy down and Give him a plasma pistol instead of his boltgun, and gave him a new hand holding a very impressive looking power axe, made out of a space wolves axe head and a grey knight Force staff handle. I was very happy with how he cam out, I really thought that it was a conversion that looked like it was meant to be.

Getting back in the swing of things

20170311_130232

So its been 2 years since I’ve made a post… and honestly its pretty much been the same amount of time since I’ve really painted much of anything. Over the course of the past couple years where this blog has gone dark, that Stormraven you saw last, has seen a few games, and I’m happy to say it is rightly feared by my opponent(s). But enough about the past(As nothing has really happened in it in terms of hobbying or wargaming…

Lets move on to where I am today. About a month or two ago I got the itch back to paint and play on a more regular basis. And To be honest, I’ve been killing it. I’ve torn through a good amount of minis, and if you can see from the above picture you may notice I’m revamping that old Marneus Calgar and honor Guard squad, ya know, cuz I’m insane and can never just leave stuff alone… But seriously, they are looking more up to par with my newer stuff, so I’m happy with em.

As for what the future holds, I’ve obviously decided to start posting hobby progress again, and maybe even some blurbs about he games I play. They will probably be pretty dull, as I really only have one opponent I could regularly play with, unless ya know, I go out and socialize with people at my local gaming store, but lets face it… that’s probably not gonna happen… But who knows.

I’d like to do a post a week maybe? Lets see how that pans out, and if my budget can support that much content… It may just be me painting the ridiculous back log of older minis I’ve been hanging on to for what seems like forever.

So I’ll leave this post with a few snap shots of whats been keeping me busy over that last couple months, Hope you enjoy. Thanks,
