Tybalt Marr & Vheren Ashurhaddon - Sons of Horus - Horus Heresy


Hello everyone

Another post about projects I never posted about on here.
This time around it's a couple of Sons of Horus characters, that I painted quite a while back I think.

Vheren Ashurhaddon is from Forgeworld (Now just Warhammer?), slightly reposed and with a 3D-printed helmet, as I really didn't like the one that came in the set. Tybalt Marr is a custom resin sculpt, which isn't available anymore so I won't bother to say who sold it, as you sadly won't be able to get one anyway. It's based on some artwork from the Black Library Horus Heresy series, which depicts both him and Horus Aximand (Which I have painted two versions of now) on the cover.

Anyway, less talk more pictures :-)

I'm currently working on a few Napoleonic projects and Horus Ascended, but Warlord Games have just started a little painting competition I have to paint for because the prize is absolutely bonkers insane and we really want to try and win it.

Still a project or two yet to show, so I'll see if I remember it the coming days.

Until then

Centurion - Sons of Horus - Games Workshop


Hello everyone

Two posts in two days, madness!
But as I mentioned yesterday I have a few Sons of Horus projects I've completely forgotten to post.

First up is my converted Centurion from the Age of Darkness starter set by Games Workshop. The main conversion is of course the chest swap, which is just a 3D-printed torso I found on Cults3D and had a mate print for me. The rest is just a slight reposing of the bits from the model. I think there's a photo on my Instagram where I show the unpainted model so it's easier to see what I've actually done (but you have to scroll back quite a lot)

I'll see if I remember to post another project tomorrow :-D

Until then

French 3rd Hussars - Napoleonic Wars - Perry Miniatures (FN140)


Hello everyone!

It has been quite a while and I actually have a few things I've completely forgotten to post here, both Horus Heresy and Black Powder related.

But let's just start with the most recent thing I've been working on. These are the 1st Company of the French 3rd Hussars, they form the first half of the 1st Squadron of the regiment. I still need to paint the remaining 7 miniatures, but I need a little break from painting horses as I don't particularly enjoy that part :-p

These are a Perry Miniatures plastic kit and they are absolutely lovely to both build and paint. The flag is from Flags of War which is where we are currently getting all our flags so far in the project.

The plan now is to finish the Heresy project I've been working on, and if you've been following along on Instagram you already know I'm working on the "new'ish" Horus Ascended model and it's actually fairly close to being finished, not a lot left to paint but all of it just takes a long time.

I think that's it for today, will try to post some Heresy tomorrow if I remember (no promises).

Until then

Napoleonic French Line Infantry - Painting Guide

Hello everyone

If you follow me on Instagram (@DornsArrow) you'll probably have noticed I've been painting a lot of Napoleonic models recently. Me and a couple of mates have been slowly working on this project together because we've talked about doing some historicals together for years.

I'm primarily working on the French and they work on the British and because of this, a few people have asked how I go about painting my French infantry. So I decided to make a quick tutorial showing it. You can find it right here and as usual, it's completely free of charge.

I'll probably showcase more of our combined work at some later point, but here are a few of the units I've done using the basic process described in the guide.

Until next time.

Ultramarine Command Squad - Kinstrife Terminators - DivergingRealm


Hello everyone

It has been a little while since I posted anything here. I actually thought I had shared these, but apparently, I hadn't. So better rectify that now.

These models are designed by a mate of mine a few years ago, CAD designed and then cast in resin and quite heavily modified by me. He does a lot of crazy designs and he has only gotten better in the last year, so I'd suggest checking him out! (DivergingRealm).

I began working on these before the new edition hit and I had actually written my own rules for them. But since 2nd edition arrived I haven't gone back to that idea. So I suppose I'll just play them as a Command Squad or something now (haven't played them yet).

Anyway, I'm really happy with how they turned out, even though painting all the gold was a fucking chore :-p. now enjoy some more pictures.

I also finished another project recently and I'll try to post about it soon. As always if you want to follow along with my work, check out my Instagram.

Until next time.
