I am only trying to help you make your models as awesome as possible. And also I kinda hate you! :p
Speeder looks awesome, not much more to say since last time though
I feel your hate, it rushes through me and sustains me! ... Wait, that came out wrong!
It's good to have someone eyeing your pieces with scrutiny and playing hard ball with you, it makes you analyse your work and your alternatives. I wouldn't be where I am today modelling/painting skill wise without the harsh love of Heresy-online! So keep the hate coming, mate!

I'm still waiting for tools and pieces for Valthex, he's on hold for now. I remember my slow but rewarding work with Tyberos - sometimes it's good to be forced to wait.
yeah i am in no hurry lol
Cheers! Hope it works as well for you as it has for me!

Ehhhmmm, ya right dude, seriously? She's looking super buddy and good luck with the job prospect.
I knew it! I've destroyed the miniature, I guess I'll just toss her out the window and see if she really is a skimmer!
Speeder is looking ace man!! The blue is so vibrant
It kind of grows on you! The more I look at it the more vibrant it gets, self hypnosis ftw!
I swear Xeno if you ever decide to sell your stuff you will be bloody rich. All masterpieces.
Sadly I don't think so
the amount of time I put into each miniature would hardly make it a feasible occupation since no one would pay that much for a miniature (decent wage/hour).
I like the techmarines MkIII arms, the rest of his armour looks like a version of the same so those match really well. Is that the finished product or are you still experimenting with him?
I'm still experimenting, waiting on some more tools and wires to create a few "whip-coils" attached to the arms to represent the power weapons he's supposed to have.
I've realised I'm a glutton for punishment. I've recently ordered the Rapier Laser Destroyer
, the Minotaurs special characters
and a set of Mk III marines
to.. Add to my project pile. I have some nice ideas for the Rapier (Thunderfire counts as, never used that unit before because it was completely made in metal) and I'm going to see if I can make something useful from the character parts (spears as counts as thunder hammers for some Void Sharks assault termies perhaps?). The Mk IIIs I haven't decided on yet.
As far as painting goes I've continued my long process of highlighting the land speeder tempest/typhoon and I'm now almost done with the top side (woho!). Time is running out so I need to get a move on!
I've managed to find all the poses I wanted for my first tactical squad for the Void Sharks. I also gathered enough pieces to equip them all with the correct shoulderpads to give them a unified feel (left shoulder charges, yarr!!). Anyway, here's a quick image compilation to show them all. They still need minor details added (pouches and grenades) as well as minor greenstuff work (armguards and soft armour additions).
