WIP: The Cult, Part 1 The Assembly

WIP: The Cult, Part 1 The Assembly

So my next project is the recently release Games Workshop Deathwatch Overkill. Having been a long term player of GW games the Hybrid Cult was the first Alien race that I ever played with outside of Marines and Guard. So with this recent release I went all weak at the knees and buckled and bought a copy.

Tale Of Tau Gamers

Tale of Tau Gamers

So I admit failure today.

I have lost all interest in my Tau army. Through a lack of settling on a colour scheme and getting deeper and deeper into Horus Heresy, and the recent release of Death Watch. I have lost all drive and desire to finish them.

So will be selling them off to fund more Horus Heresy purchases.

I have just completed my first Word Bearers squad so I will be taking some pictures later this week.

WIP: Photo Back Drop

WIP: Photo Back Drop

So With my new photo area set up I have decided to make a back drop for my models. As I am predomently painting 30k models I have gone with a city fight theme.

Using the Bastion and some spare city fight wall I have built this, I need some more Bastion walls to complete this section.

Pop back and see the progress

So its taken me some time to get around to some updates of my Iron Hands but do not worry is becourse i have been working so hard to get my army finished.
So in my last update I said I was working on my paint scheme and finding it hard to come up with a nice looking Black scheme.... well lets just say i gave up instead i went with a dry brush option of Brass Scorpion mix with Abadon Black. (One part Brass Two parts Black) and this gave me a very nice hint of Brass which i am very happy with.
My first unit to have this scheme applied to was my Medusan Immortals from Forge World.
A lovely unit for the Iron Hands they have the following within the pack:
The Medusan Immortals are a five man multi-part kit fitted out in MkIII Iron Armour that features many details such as cybernetic limbs, and includes optional Lascutter and Graviton gun.
I am a huge fan of the cybernetic parts and was verry happy to see that Games Work Shop still make the Iron Hands up grade pack.
Below are some current pictures of the results of my work however they are still to be finished as I have yet to complete the highlighting. As you can also see I have proceeded with the basing too and went with the cork base which was then shaped in to a stone slab and painted to suit using Mechanicus Standard Gray and an Ink of Nuln Oil and finally a dry brush of Administratum Gray though this is not very visible from the pictures below.
My WIP have move on very quickly due to the release of Calth and I went about building and painting as much as I could in a bit of a possessed frenzy to complete my army. As you can see from the pictures below.
I am still working on many of my units mostly the highlighting which has vastly become the bane of my life and I am yet to do any of the weathering on any of my units.
In my next post I will so you some pictures of the Land Riders I got in my much younger days which I have been converting due to the lack of twin linked Lascannons.
I will also be showing my Command unit and my Iron Hands Iron Farther in more detail.
Hope you enjoy the read all comments welcome.

WIP: Spring Clean Part 2


So carrying on with my recent spring clean I have cleared an area in my man cave to take photos.
Bought myself a cheap light box, so now will start playing around with how to take better photos.

Aim is over the next few weeks and months to improve my photo taking.

WIP: Spring Tidy

WIP: Spring Tidy

So my first free weekend in March had the wife making a couple of trips to the tip, to clear out some rubbish that had been building up. With a zest of activity I tidied up the painting area to give myself a little more room.

Need to get another rack for paints and a bit more light onto the painting area. But happy with the couple of hours worth of work.

On the table to finish are some Electro Priests, 10 Heresy Marines, Dust strider, Pollux, and Templars half constructed.

Back later in the month with some progress shots of my new pic taking area
