These guys were an interesting challenge. I used a dark green and then washed with black to get the armor looking the way I wanted, and did a lot of work on the faces, with varying levels of success. I’m particularly happy with the bald warrior.
I finally got these varnished and ready for prime time! The Adeptes Astartes will likely be a loaner Kill Team, and I expect the terrain to see a lot of use. I’m pretty happy with how these came out – I’m progressing in my skill on finer details.
The latest out of the paint shop are a squad apiece of Iyanden Aeldari rangers and Dire Avengers. I’m particularly pleased with the more muted yellow and blue scheme on the rangers.
Finshed up a double batch of Iyanden Aeldari troops – a squad each of Guardian Defenders and Storm Guardians. I’m particularly happy with some of the faces on these guys – still honing my skin and eyes skills.
Continuing my open defiance of the box art, I painted these Xiphon Interceptors and Storm Eagle Assault Craft in Ultramarines colors. Coming soon, Happy Monster Joy’s take on Ork Air Waaaaagh units!
The box art for Aeronautica Imperialis: Wrath of Angels from Games Workshop clearly shows Craftworld Saim-Hain colors for the Aeldari fighters and bombers, but I’m stubborn – this squadron is painted in my preferred Iyanden color scheme instead. I had to freehand the symbols on the fighters, but I’m reasonably happy with how they came […]
Finally finished off Nídhöggr, from CMON‘s Blood Rage. I’m particularly happy with the way the tree trunk came out.
I’m very happy with how these came out and looking forward to using them in my first in-person Kill Team game!
Lots of painting projects going on, but these three are finished. Iyanden Aeldari Spiritseer and Heavy Weapons Platform (magnetized, and the Guardians are on the way next), and Nídhöggr from Blood Rage, the serpent who gnaws at the roots of the World Tree.
The CMON Blood Rage painting continues with monsters, specifically the Mountain Giantess. My new project is a Games Workshop Warhammer 40K army, specifically an Iyanden Craftworlds force. Here’s the first model, a Wave Serpent. The piping was murder, but I’m pretty happy with it overall, especially the object lighting on the pilot.
