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.
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 […]
I’m very happy with how these came out and looking forward to using them in my first in-person Kill Team game!
These guys took a while because I got a little overloaded with work in progress. They’re not my primary 40K faction – I have them basically as a spare Kill Team for friends.
After an initial round of fighting degenerated into a scrum on one flank of the battlefield, the two Kill Teams continued their fight for the hidden cache of supplies. The Asuryani Kill Team Dagger of Ynnead had now identified the enemy – the notorious T’au Kill Team Mont’ka Gambit. The Gambit moved quickly, keeping initiative […]
Last night, a skirmish began between the Asuryani Kill Team known as the Dagger of Ynnead and an unidentified T’au Kill Team. The Dagger were trying to capture a cache of supplies in an ancient Mechanicus ruin. Unfortunately, the T’au arrived first, but the Aeldari managed to approach unseen and engage. The Dagger’s Dire Avenger […]
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.
