Apart from a Templar Fellblade, the knight is the biggest model Ive ever painted (and the fellblade was pretty easy - its just black with some red/white/gold details really).

For the marines, I'm trying to focus on making each one in some way unique. The novels bring so much detail into the grunt marines that never get too much focus in the modelling. I'm also pretty well on to actually having the models, theres not actually that much I still have left to buy, and those things are pretty big purchases (FW stuff, or 3 vindicators!)

So its been a while since I updated... Been hectic on job hunt recently which has limited my toys time sadly. Also my partner got us a copy of x-wing ages ago and we finally got round to playing it - and then ended up buying more x-wing and sinking lots of free time into saving the empire from the traitorous dogs in the rebel alliance!

Anywho; I had a very productive week generally, particularly Friday when I was working from home; I got lots of stuff primed. I have had a fair few projects half finished - Honsou and the true scales, contemptors, cata terminators,tarty terminators and some characters - which are now all sprayed leadbelcher and ready to enter the production lines!
I'm going to try and stick to painting a squad, big thing, character so i don't get too distracted with them.
[Above, when I said I have the attention of a butterfly; I also started gathering parts from my old skaven to make a Daemonculaba so Honsou can oversee the building of the army!]

I managed to finish the Typhon and the body of the Knight (which I still don't have a name for, and need to make the arms) so I'm pretty happy with the general progress of the army. One thing I need to work on through is the weathering; both use of weathering powders and mud and splatter. I think the powders I have a decent idea of how to use them, just not where. The mud, I just need to figure my preferred application method; I got a mud 'pen' which is a bit like a crayon, as well as the GW mud and a brown squeezy acrylic paint (which was a recommendation by a friend). The typhon just has the crayon on at the moment, but i think i need to let it set properly and then add the GW mud and a light brown dry brush to finish it off.

Ive edited the original post above and coloured the list appropriately for reference, and will post pictures up below as I sort through them.

Here's the Typhon and the Renegade Knight body (base WIP).

Light was pretty terrible this weekend, I blame Storm Doris, and living in coventry; known for its sunshine and bright outlook!
I have now managed to get some decent pictures of the Typhon following on from my post above - so any comments welcome; particularly on how I can make the weathering better. [I'm also a bit annoyed how streaky the nuln oil wash has gone over it, maybe some medium to the wash would help next time.]

Today, however I'm feeling pretty chuffed for another reason.... Honsou and Grendel are finished!!

These are the first of the truescale guys, and I have to say will probably be the last of my foray into such modelling. It’s a massive pain in the arse, and to be honest, my skills arent going to do it justice! Ive got 80 mk3 marines to get through as well as a load of CSM to get through and I cant picture myself doing that much dicking about with plasticard and green stuff.

That said, here's more pictures of the Typhon

Bonus picture of my WIP dread that will be a ferrum infernus (destroyer of cities) for 40k and a normal dread in 30k (kitted out the same).

Default Honsou + Chosen

Over the past few days/weeks Ive been painting the true scale dudes i made above. I could have probably made the green stuff work a bit better, but I basically gave up with 'average' quality of modelling and try to distract from the imperfections with the paint job!

These guys will be my main command unit, with Honsou leading, Grendel at his side, and The Newborn in front to go bash skulls! They're accompanied by 4 dudes with bolter/power swords for which I tried to do some different colours on their swords. I've only really done blue before, so it was a nice challenge. There's also a bunch of bolter chainsword dudes with them. The unit will be deployed in a heavily converted land raider (which I mentioned above), which will be part of a formation. Theres still bases to finish off and I'm going to give weathering powders a go on some infantry after my typhon foray, plus I have noticed that the existing backpacks have a mold line or 2, and the other guys backpacks arent finished yet... but all in all, I'm pretty chuffed with how theyre turning out so far!

Default Contemptor progress

As well as the marines, I've also been progressing my two contemptor dreads.

Ive finished the bases and arms, and have the prime colours mapped out on the body more or less. I still have some more brass to map out on the plastic one but its basically done. I'm hoping to be able to finish the bodies this week, and then glue it all together. I'm also going to try and do more with my bases. When I was doing my templars, I basically painted them brown and put some small cork bits on with pva. It worked, but it didnt really do the models justice. I think that these guys will be the ones to start trying more with weathering powders on for humanoid type units, but big scale.

Had fun doing the krieg dude bleeding out on one base, and tried to do some rusty metal for the base of another. I also did a imperial fist helmet and arm, which will end up under the dreads foot eventually. "Blood for the Blood God" is an interesting medium to work with, I kind of just splodged it on and hoped for the best, it was harder on this model than on the edge of swords. I want to get better with it because I can see it being a really useful paint to bring a model to life and be more grimdark.

I'll update with better pictures when theyre done.

A few buddies are coming over for warhammer fest at the end of the month (I live round the corner from the venue), so we decided that a bit of Shadow Wars was on the cards...

Leader (300pts)
Bolt pistol, power sword, combat blade, power armour

Trooper (180pts)
Bolter, chainsword, combat blade, power armour

Specialist (280pts)
Bolt pistol, power sword, combat blade, power armour

Specialist (240pts)
Meltagun, assault blade, combat blade, power armour


They're running Tau/Dark Angels/Harlequins so my Iron Warriors need to deal with different types of opponent. But who the hell wants tactics when you can have a facemelta and bodyexploder?

I used three from the squad I painted above and then bashed this guy together to be the Autocannon. I'm still toying with the idea of putting a belt feed on it, or changing to a drum mag, but am a bit undecided at the mo. The only reason is the belt feed is obviously heavy bolter, rather than the larger autocannon calibre round. Once I've got the autocannon finished there's just a little bit of green stuff and gap filling to do and then paint!

Hope you guys like it!
