Culexus Commission the IInd - The Lineage of Fear

Good day to thee,


Another Culexus to go along with the old Vindicare and the Night Lords currently in my possession, a few touch ups needed and I still need to chat with the client about what style the bases need to be on these, but pretty much there otherwise!






Peace out,

Rob

Working on the Night Lords

Hey gang,


Been doing more work on the Night Lords in my possession that are part of the same job as the old school Vindicare I posted up a few days ago. I've got a Land Raider, Forgefiend, Jump pack Lord, Daemon Prince, Night Lords specific HQ and a Helbrute to do, along with a Culexus assassin.

Some good progress on the Forgefiend and jump pack Lord in todays post. Though the Culexus is nearly done as well. The basing for these guys will have some dismembered imperial knight parts strewn around, so they will be painted up completely separately as and when I finish the rest of the commission.






Pleased with how they are coming along, hopefully the client is as well!

Peace out,

Rob

Building the Yncarne - It Begins

Hey all,


So recently, my lovely girlfriend bought me the Triumverate of Ynnead which has sparked my re-involvement in 40k and the probable development of an Ynnari army... The first step to this is building and painting the centrepiece itself, the Yncarne.

In between painting steps on the Night Lords I have going on, I treated myself to starting the build on this beast. This is the first of 3 major sub-assemblies that will be built and painted before being glued together, though there are several minor pieces that will be painted separately as well. 




As you can see, this thing is incredibly detailed. I won't be following the paint scheme of GW but be going for something altogether darker in tone! I'm planning on getting the rest of the sub-assemblies built and undercoated this weekend with some work on this first section starting late next week should time allow!

Peace out,

Rob

Old School Vindicare Commission!

Hey all,


I'm currently working on a Night Lords commission with some attached imperial assassins. The Vindicare is an older sculpt though not the very very old one. I had a lot of fun laying paint on this guy and as it was done in one sitting it felt very much like progress!

I've also begun some work proper on an army I've had gagging at the bit for some time, so that should rear its head soon...





With some extra professional commitments coming up I will be curtailing the number of commissions that I take soon, so this will be the last fresh commission you will see for some time. I have a boat load of Dark Angels though still to do so expect to see a lot more of them over the next 6 months, which is my time scale for completion :)

Peace out,

Rob

Podcast Preparations for The Burning Lore - Coming Soon!

Hey everyone,


Still busy as hell with work so little hobby to show at the moment (should change next week). But the picture above is my lovely and rather amazing girlfriend Serena, who is live mixing the levels and effects of both my voice and Ed's (Darkfuture30k) as we record narrative dramatisations of our army fluff for our upcoming podcast!

Here's an action shot of Ed looking like a blue peter presenter as well :P


We aren't doing this by halves, so the end result should be a very high quality audio for you to listen to as you paint :)

Peace out,

Rob

Deathwing Dreadnoughts get some love

Hey all,

Image Right held by creator as indicated by watermark :)

A very busy week for me and not been terribly well with one of those stomach bugs going around, hence not many hobby posts going up! Here is a quick look at a couple of Deathwing dreadnoughts that have been seeing some brush time. Absolutely loads to do on them though! All the arms will be getting painted separately after I decide how to make them interchangeable. I'm actually favouring just filing out the holes rather than magnetising right now.




Peace out,

Rob
