Painted Monolith wip

Well almost done with the Monolith.  I just need to finish the guns and add the last of the glow-rods.  At some point I think I need to rebuild a light box, because the flash is really drowning out a lot of the effect on the stone.  Now I need to finish my second annihilation barge, and I should be set for an upcoming tourney.

Chaos Hellbrute

I picked up a starter box for 40k and I fell in love with the new chaos models.  I absolutely had to paint a hellbrute asap.  I have not even finished assembling the rest of the box.  When it comes to painting I have been very a.d.d. lately, working on necrons, marines and now chaos.  I found the hellbrute really easy to put together while still having a lot of detail.  GW's plastic models have only improved. I look forward to seeing what some of the new chaos kits look like.

Night Scythe

So in light of the new flier rules I felt it might be nice to pick up one for my necrons.  I stayed up painting it last night and other than a few details/bits it is finished.  This model is really cool, and I cant wait to get it on the table.  And to those who might be curious it is easy to magnetize so you can switch between the two fliers.

6th ed. Countdown

So just a few more days until we mere mortals have our own copies of the new 40k rules.  I have no clue what armies I am interested in working on.  So I am keeping myself occupied with what has to be the biggest pain in the butt I have ever worked on. The Necron Ghost Ark.  With the paint scheme I am using I have to paint it as I assemble it and that really slows the whole thing down.  I figure that when I get totally sick of It I will go back to working on Minotaurs.

Myrmidon Champion

So I got off my butt, and finished the base for my Myrmidon Champion.  This is my first mini wearing the Minotaur shoulder pads.
I also assembled my "thunder bull" and I will post it once I get it painted.  Here are a few more pictures of my Myrmidon

Forgeworld order Arrived

Here all the shoulderpads and decals I ordered.  It was like christmas when I got home friday and saw the box sitting on the step.  I have never wanted to paint anything so bad in my life.  So I am going to try to finish one of my lone wolves and get it posted.

Painted Minotaurs

So I finally got my first 5 man squad almost fully painted.  There is a little detail work I want to do like highlight the red but for now I think I will try to get some more units painted.
I really dig these bases.  I will be adding some of the GW tufts of grass to finish the bases and give them that ancient ruins feel.  The next model I am working on is my Myrmidon Champion (counts as lone wolf).

I Return

So I have had a truly hectic schedule since before the holidays.  It now seems that I will have time to keep up with this blog.  So I have a new project.  One that I have been working on in the concept stage for awhile.  They are the Minotaurs chapter of space marines.
