Nightshift Week

Nightshift week just kills me. I am sure its not just me that is totally fucked up by the change. I have been actively trying to get some painting done however sleeping all day and being at my desk all night makes that jolly difficult.

My main focus just now is the Robute Guilliman mode for my friend. So far I am happy with it, its ticking over nice and slow. I have a long weekend coming up so hoping to have it done for this time next week.

Some WIP shots. Working at the desk in work and the lighting is pretty terrible. You can clearly see the yellow tinge in the light. 

My two New York battleships arrived today. Not built them yet but I will be unpacking them and doing a little review on them asap. From just a quick nosey at them they do look super sexy and I can’t wait to see them on the board.


Claymore 2016 Prep

Claymore sneaks up on us again this Saturday, I put a few figures in the painting comp last year but they were True Scale Deathwatch and honestly not that great so as expected got no where. Ill throw a few pictures up for you all to have a giggle at.

Not the best quality pictures but good enough to get accross the painting quality.

This year I decided to throw in two models from my Imperial Fists, my favourite sculpt from any GW game line the Terminator Chaplain and also the Forge World Alexis Pollux. Both of these are, I feel, better quality than the Deathwatch guys but still a lot of areas that I can improve on.

In other news Operation Panzer rolls on at a snails pace. Rommel is 99.99% finished however the 38t horde is still a WIP. I have based them for spraying and plan on getting to them at some point this week…ish.

Next up on the GW front will be finishing off the Big E as well as sorting out Lorgar. He has been half finished for what feels like a million years. Few pics below on his current state.

He looks very unhappy at being left for so long.

Until next time…

For the Emperor

During the move I decided that I was going to finish my Emperor of Mankind model that was purchased around 9/10 months ago. I was using it as a stand in for Rogal Dorn, Primarch of the Imperial Fists (kicking ass and taking names for over 10’000 years). Below is a little progress shot of the Dorn/Emp model as well as an older Instagram shot of him when I started on him a good while ago. Using Burnt Umber as a base colour is shameless stolen from Next Level Painting, an utterly epic Youtube channel about miniature painting.
