Then 4 story mecha's annihilating each other??
These are the two high quality clan mechs from the new 25th box set all painted up and ready for battle, courtesy of Psycho
First up is the Loki, Clan Jade falcon - Delta Galaxy
Then we have the Thor, Clan Ghost Bear - Delta Galaxy
so here I am, off on another tangent, starting yet again another new facet, before finishing any of the old....
DeathWatch Character/Marine seconded from the Blood Angels 5th Company.
the reality is, I wanted to make one, make him really kewl, and I had a ton of spare cool Blood Angels bits kicking around.... so onwards with this "build/paint", and we'll see if I actually get all the way through it ;)
First up, the inspiration, ya the waepons are going to be different, and mine will be way more ornate...but this was a leaping off point.... so the thinking is pretty traditional color scheme. Black marine, silver & gold left arm and pad, Red BA heritage right pad, jumpack and armor details, blue bladed force weapon, undecided on gun.
So then here's where we start in the real world...the associated bits and resin base L-R we have a fancy BA shoulder pad, DW metal head, a mish mash of BA, Generic, Black Templar and Forgewrold parts put together to make a jump pack, a DW shoulder pad and a resin base from Back 2 Base-ix Rubble series
and the beginnings of the marine proper. Likely I'll add the head from above and paint him as is, with the pads, pack and base being painted off model
So we have these two guys, 2 of three in the comission, from the recent Blood Angels releases. Astorath and Sanguinor, and, as usual, the pics do not do these guys the justice they deserve....Seeing them in RL is way much better-er. On some Back-2-Base-ix "ruins" resin bases
Loved the menoth mini's from the start, but took ages to find a workable color scheme.... The traditional white and maroon for menoth never really worked for me.....now just gotta dream up some fluff.....all of these are WIP's on dragonforge bases
Due to some recent pressure I have caved and composed this catch all post, summing up the last few (read 5-ish) months of what I've been up to *besides, summer, and work, and weddings and vacations and kids ect*
I know I've said it in the past, but it still holds true.....
first up, the Death Angel Space marines build up.....to follow up on that we have from the last post, the marines proper, posed, built, and basecoated black
Next up is the backpaks, assembled, basecoated and started blocking in colors
Then I got distracted, by some dwarves...first some from the box set I thought I'd get ready for trial color runs (though only got as far as cleaned and basecoated)
then I figured a whole cannon crew, got even less done on these guys.....
then some rarer metals I stumbled across, only got these guys cleaned *they were already painted once*
spent some tinkering with my Memoir 44 mini's, getting them magnetized and based
then came the cards.....ohh...the cards....
on top of all that, I got back in to sim racing, in July/Aug I played a lot of Rfactor, with my new wheel and pedal set, then came Sept. and F1 2010, and Civ 5 on the same day...
