Horus the Warmaster Primarch of the Sons of Horus - Forgeworld


Hello everyone!

Today is a great day for my Sons of Horus army, as they are finally joined by their beloved Primarch, Horus Lupercal. I've been painting on my army for a couple of years now, so it was only fitting that Horus had to be my next project. This model was simply a joy to paint, so rich in detail and such a striking pose. I did have my doubts about the base, but I think I managed to get done in a way that makes it fit in with the rest of the army.

I tried to challenge myself a bit on this model, trying some new techniques and such and overall I'm very happy with the result.

I think it took me about 4 weeks to paint this, so not to bad I think :)


Anyway, have some more pictures! Please feel free to comment either here or on Instagram (@DornsArrow).

Until next time
Chris










Update 15.01.2018
A few people asked if I could take some pictures with a white background, so here you go :)

Ezekyle Abaddon - Wargame Exclusive


Hello everyone!
After reading "The Talon of Horus" by Aaron Dembski-Bowden, I knew I had to paint up an Abaddon mini, sadly Games Workshop most current version just isn't up to scratch, but luckily I had managed to get my hands on one of the first limited edition CHAOS MASTER OF CRUSADE from Wargame Exclusive. I don't think its on sale anymore, so if you would like one, you should probably look on Ebay or maybe write them directly?

This miniature was amazing (except for the sword, which I really didn't like) and just a joy to paint, the sculpt was nearly perfect, with only a minimum of mold lines and all the details came out so crisp. I would highly recommend anyone to check out Wargame Exclusives other miniatures.


Until next time.

Chris

Work in Progress - Abaddon - Wargame Exclusive


Hello everyone!

Just thought I would make a short post about my current project.
If you would like to see more regular WIP photos etc. you should follow me on Instagram @DornsArrow :)

But anyway, I'm currently painting this lovely miniature from Wargame Exclusive, I think this specific version a very limited edition, but they do make one which is almost the same.

Painting this has made me realize that I'm glad my main force if not Black Legion....so much bloody gold trim on these Chaos models :-D  However I'm trying to make it fit in with my Sons of Horus, and the main idea was to use this mini in an Apocalypse Campaign I'm currently playing in. Therefor I'm not going full 40k chaos on it.

Anyway hope you enjoy this little teaser, hopefully I will have it done soon :)

Grog Strongjaw - Critical Role - Geek & Sundry - Take 2


Hello everyone

Just wanted to post a couple of better pictures I took of my Grog Strongjaw miniature. I tinkered a bit with my camera, and realised that I've bee a taking fairly shitty pictured for very long, due to a setting that needed to be disabled..... Sigh. Since I'm shooting on Manual mode with my DLSR camera, I thought that I had control over everything, but sadly this setting kept "correcting" the ISO to 6400 without my knowledge, which always resulted in fairly grainy photos. This has now been fixed :-p it took like 3 years to figure out...yay me.

Anyway! Enjoy some non-grainy photos of my rendition of Grog Strongjaw, the Goliath Barbarian of Vox Machina, in the show Critical Role.
