Recon Marines - Sons of Horus - Forgeworld

 

Hello everyone
So I'm currently working on a rather large project for my Sons of Horus, this weekend I managed to finish the first part of it, this 5 man Recon Squad. Was a lovely kit to paint and had a lot of fun with it. I'm actually surprised how fast I finished these, but I'm sure batch painting 30 tactical marines will kill my will to live again :-p

These are painted by following my own recipe (from the pdf) and then added a bit more highlights with the hairy brush in the end, just using some glazes etc.

Anyway here are some more pictures.




Until next time

Guan Y - The Red Cloud - Luxthantor Miniatures

 


Hello everyone!

So when I started painting Jaghatai, I also started working on this miniature designed and sculpted by Luxthantor. The sculpt is simply fantastic, not much else to say, traditionally sculpted and then cast in resin. Sadly the pre-order is over and the model is no longer available, but if you are interested you should follow him on Instagram and check out his webpage regularly. 

The kit came with 4 head options and a little human serf holding his sword, I choose to paint 2 of the heads and throw the remaining into the bitz box for later use. The serf I imagine will end up as a ZM objective when I get the time.

Next up I think I'll play some more Heresy v2 and get started assembling all the plastic in the new starter set. But the next real project will probably be for the Ultramarines, so stay tuned for that.





Until next time

Jaghatai Khan with Jetbike - Forgeworld + 3d Print



Hello everyone

I'm sure most of you have probably seen this by now, but I forgot to post the finished Jetbike base on the blog, so decided to rectify that mistake.

Anyway, I recently finished painting the second base for this Jaghatai commission I have been doing for a good friend of mine, so now I can play him on foot and jetbike and that's pretty cool I think. I'm so happy this project is finished as it has been quite a tortuous journey :-p

Next up I'm working on a beautiful custom sculpted miniature I was sent by Myles David (Lil'Legend), the model was traditionally sculpted by @Luxthantor and it's absolutely fantastic. Hopefully I'll have it done soon :-)

Now for more jetbike picture, enjoy!





Until next time
Chris

Jaghatai Khan, The Warhawk - Forgeworld

 

Hello everyone

If you've been following along on Instagram you have probably seen a couple (or hundred) work in progress pictures of this project. But for the last month and a half, I've been painting Jaghatai Khan for a friend of mine. I rarely do commissions, even for friends, and this project has helped me remind myself of why that is the case :-p.

I was never a big fan of this model and painting it has surprisingly not helped with that (which is usually the case), but the amount of "stuff" on this model is just out of this world. Especially all the gold was really a chore to paint, but I suppose it worked out in the end.

Nevertheless, I'm really happy with the overall result and I hope you like it too.


I'm actually also working on another base which includes a jetbike, so hopefully, I'll have that done soon.

If you have any questions or want to see what I'm working on, check out my Instagram (@dornsarrow)

Until next time

Falkus Kibre, The Widow Maker - Sons of Horus - Forgeworld

 


Hello everyone!

So I just recently finished this model, the relatively new Sons of Horus Terminator from Forgeworld.
This was an absolute pleasure to paint and in my opinion, one of the best models Forgeworld has made in quite a while. I only did minor alterations on this one, pretty much just the head and a few more weapons (praise magnet Jesus).

Painted like all my other black armoured Sons of Horus (check the painting guide section for my tutorial) and then some more work done on the final highlights. To be fair the black armour didn't quite turn out how I wanted it, but I'm still very pleased with my result. The cloak and all the gold trim I'm really happy with so it kinda balances it out :-D

Anyway here are some more pictures

And because Instagram demanded it, here are a few group shots of all my Justaerin to date. Still have a few more I need to paint, but that will have to wait.




The next project is a Primarch I'm painting for a good friend of mine, probably won't post about it here until it's done, so follow along on Instagram if you are interested.

Until next time
Chris
