And my first ever proper powerweapon painted! Pretty pleased with the results. The Smartphone camera does botch up some of the layering so it looks better in real life.. no really!

Edited for better picture

Power sword looks amazing!

My only gripe (although, feel free to ignore) is the white designs on the purple part of the robe look a little blotchy :/

Still, trumps anything I could do!

Thanks for the kind words! You are totally right about the white by the way, still a work in progress and they need another coat to clear them up .

For a change of pace!

As someone who has almost never worked on terrain I thought lets start small:

Lets build my own gaming board because the Realm of battle boards are hella expensive and have wayyy to much skulls for my liking.

Yesterday after hours of painstaking detail work and cursing the first plate is done. (Pro-tip kids: plan ahead, last time additions of corkplate, hand painted, while the rest of the board was done, are a pain in the arse and take a LOT of paint).

Behold, I'm well chuffed



And another angle:



Combined with my first imperial sector building, based to blend into the table


The theme I am going for is ash wastes/urban waste land. Mostly because the grey/brown tones contrast nicely with my and my brothers main armies of Dark Angels and Tau.

Thanks! I'm planning on updating the log this week as I made some progress on scenery, the veterans and my shiny new droppod. Stay tuned

Edit:

-Damn! I just started work on my Deathwing which I stripped earlier and it seems I didn't really look closely enough. With white primer the dreaded bubbly texture came into view... Might try and scrape some of it off but I doubt I'll be using these models anymore

Look he made some friends! Ready to be primed



These assault marines where all kitbashed and heavily inspired by Mad Max' brilliant Black Templar army thread:
https://www.heresy-online.net/forums/...arossa+crusade

They contain parts of BT and DA upgrade sprues and some tactical marines. Also my first ever sculpted helmet! I couldn't get hold of more of the BT helmets which are MK3 I believe so decided to make one myself.

Other work finished today: a simple landspeeder tornado conversion. I don't really like the box shape of the landspeeders and this way it looks a little more like something that can fly.





Finally a WIP of some terrain I have been playing around with. Inspired by the crashed aquilla lander I went looking around in my bits box for stuff I could use as walls/los blocking terrain and make the board more visually interesting:

Really nice, looking forward to seeing some paint! I really need to get my hands on some BT upgrade sprues (already have some DA as its easy enough to convert to BA insignia. I'm going to steal the idea for the Sentinal too because I don't use the two I have in games.

keep it up

Thanks Hellados BT upgrade sprues can be pretty expensive I found. I try to get the BT stuff from ebay/second hand places.
I'm interested in how you will position the sentinels, it took me a while to find a "natural" crash pose for this guy.

As always my attention quickly jumped to the next thing I wanted to try out.

Inspired by the earlier link I posted, I tried to do something to my DA that could make them a bit more menacing:



After a lot(!) of experimentation I finally found a way to give my boys in green the glowy red eyes with a very subtle OSL! Very pleased with the result. Now I only need to find a way to remove the shiny from the transfers I used... (edit, well that kind of resolved itself as I set the model away from taking the picture with half of a transfer flaking off..)
