Fantastic work as usual Varakir. The sword looks great. Very smooth transition.

Thanks mate

Hopefully it draws attention away from the bloody mould line I left on the plasma pistol. Even after god knows how many years in the hobby they always get me

Its not that noticeable in the pic. I had to actually strain to look for it AFTER you mentioned it was there so well done. Need to learn how to do that kind of transition for my own guys.

I wouldn't have noticed it hadn't you said it was on the plasma pistol. That's a great updating of a dated mini there. Nice work.

I want those terrain pieces. They're amazing. What did u use on the foamboard to make the edges so cleanly angled?

Thanks! I used a stanley knife/Scalpel, the edges on the ruins are mostly just due to the material. I'm not exactly sure what it is, but it's like a softer plasticard rather than proper foamboard. It's very sturdy but at the same time very easy to carve.

Nice Chaplain, it's a very nice Salamanders twist on a classic model. I'm a particular fan of how you've worked those knee pads, instead of being rather comic as the overlarge skulls lend themselves towards, you've actually made them look deliberately stylised through the soft bone shading and the contrast with the armour lining adjacent to them. Your Salamanders 'red hot' powerswords also look great, in a straight from the forge sort of way.

Been assembling my Landraider for the painting deathmatch this week. Did a quick paint job on the inside panels before it's sealed up to never be seen again. I'm lookong into fitting a little LED under one of the hatches as it doesn't seem too difficult to sort out.







I've also been converting some more cultists and warmachine models for my inquisition. I'm going for a ragtag group of gangers, adventurers and oddballs for my retinue, trying to build everything from the bits box. They aren't 100% finished but they are coming along ok.







Let me know what you think. I need to add more purity seals/eagles/imperial baloney to make them more characterful. The guy with the shield is my favourite so far.

Rest of the month i will be painting like a fiend to try and finish the landraider

Interesting idea.The cultists work better as retinue models than I'd have though. I particularly like the guy standing to the right of the one with plasma gun.
