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.



Next project is the big man himself...

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 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.

Steyr Pflager Katsumata Series-D Blaster (PKD Blaster) - Blade Runner

Hello everyone

Quick little post today about my just finished, rather alternative painting project. I always loved the PKD Blaster from the movie Blade Runner, but never really had the chance to get a replica of the gun. However earlier this year a water pistol version was released, so when the opportunity to get one fairly cheaply off E-Bay presented itself, I just had to do it. 

I've never actually painting a movie prop before, so it was quite an interesting project and I think I got away with it fairly nicely. I would have loved to add some LED's, but the plastic of this watergun was so flimsy, I just didn't dare cut it up. I did however fill it with some sort of plaster, to give it a bit of weight and durability.

Considering this started out as a clear plastic watergun, I'm just so happy with the result :D

I would love to get my hands on a Tomenosuke Replica some day.....some day....

Well back to painting small plastic soldiers again!

Support Squads - Melta/Autocannons - Sons of Horus

Hello everyone

I recently finished the two Support Squads I was working on, so I thought I'd better share some pictures :)

1x Tactical Support Squad (5) - with Meltaguns
1x Heavy Support Squad (5) - with Autocannons

Hopefully I will some day bring both of these to 10 man squads, but that is very low on my to-do list :-p

Well hope you like them.
