Mummy Princess Bust

First project off the table in 2019 is this Mummy Princess Bust from Black Heart. It's the movie character from last year's disastrous Mummy film with Tom Cruise. 

I was looking for a quick change of pace after all the 40K and Shadespire painting I've been doing over the last year. 

Nothing too involved here...just some airbrush and brush work. Very straightforward, but a good "pallet cleanser" as we all move into the 2019 hobby season. 

'Til next time.

Deathwatch Kill Team Complete

As the year draws to a close, I finally finished my Deathwatch Kill Team 12-man campaign roster. I'd completed 5 of these guys previously...so finished the last 7 today.

And here they are. Team now includes 2 Primaris figures: one Intercessor and one Reaver.

Well, a fun project. I like how each member of the Kill Team is completely different from all the others.

Now onto something new.

'Til next time.

Traitor Guardsmen from Blackstone Fortress

I'm currently painting up the Blackstone Fortress set from GW. Here are the 14 Traitor Guardsmen from the box.

Great set of figures. Excellent poses and lots of character. The whole set is good.

'Til next time.

Stormsire's Cursebreakers

Just completed the Stormsire's Cursebreakers warband for Nightvault. Actually, these are the first Stormiest figures I've ever completed (started many for AoS).

Nice figures, as expected from the Underworlds series. Lots of great animation (particularly cloth animation) in these sculpts.

I've started into Blackstone Fortress as well. First figure off the painting table is UR-025.

This is essentially Iron Man in the 40K universe...or maybe Cylons!

'Til next time.

Magore's Fiends

I started playing Shadespire again. The new Nightvault edition of Warhammer Underworlds has invigorated the game environment. I looked through the available warbands, and decided to put together a Fiends deck. 

I was able to assemble and paint the Fiends miniatures very quickly (two hobby days total). Who doesn't love a project that only requires four figures!

The warband plays very straightforward, and it's super-offensive-oriented. I like the play style, so I'm going to work on learning these guys for a while.

'Til next time.

Catching Up On Some Terrain Pieces


I haven't posted for a while. I've been slogging away on a couple of large projects...all having to do with Kill Team terrain. First off, I wanted to paint a Kill Team board. I started with this section of the Realms of Battle board. It's 2' x 2'...and it took forever to paint.

I've also spent the last couple of months working on this Basilicanum terrain piece, on and off.

Very happy to finally call it done. It actually is a cool model, and I'm happy to add it to the collection.

I experimented with some marble painting effects for the interior floor panels. Not perfect, but it gives me a direction to work in for future projects.

I also painted this small ruins piece from the Kill Team boxed set.

The Death Watch Kill Team expansion came with some alien trees, which were pretty fun to paint up as well.

I feel like I'm finally getting to a place where I can play some Kill Team with some nice painted terrain.

For scale reference, a few Primaris Marine models.

'Til next time.

Deathwatch Figures for Kill Team

All right. Time to get some Kill Team on the game table.

My first set of models for KT is this group of Deathwatch figures. To get the black armor, I sprayed Oil Discharge (a dark blue-black) Ghost Tint over silver. Then a final coat of Nuln Oil was sprayed over top of that to darken it down. I picked shoulder pad options that kept the red-white-black theme going for the entire team.

The Deathwatch 5-man kit is perfect for putting together a 100-point Kill Team.

Sergeant with Multi-melta and Power Sword.

Black Shield with Power Maul.

Veteran with Deathwatch Shotgun.

Veteran Gunner with Heavy Bolter and Flamer.

And another Veteran Gunner with Frag Cannon.

Next, I have to get some terrain finalized.

'Til next time.
