Chaos Models of Dark Vengeance

Just a quick post to finish off the month, the full collection of Chaos Marines from the Dark Vengeance box set that I have finally got completed over the last few months.

With these guys complete, I only have a metric ton of other Chaos stuff to paint, as well as the same amount of Dark Eldar. It's going to be a very colourful year!

Enjoy the rest of the pics and I will be back in March with plenty more for you all!

Dark Vengeance Chaos Chosen Marines... Pt 3

It has taken some time, but finally I have finished the Chaos Space Marines element of the Dark Vengeance box set (released Aug/Sept '12). I am not including the Cultists in this as they aren't Marines.

These guys are the beginning of my Slaaneshi/Emperor's Children force, so there will be plenty more pink Marines on their way, maybe mixed in with a few units still largely covered with their original purple colouring from the pre-heresy era.

Anyway, here the rest of the pictures of these two guys for you all to enjoy, thanks for looking -

How I Paint my Gold

Today I am going to tell you how I paint the gold trim, as seen on my Slaaneshi/Emperor's Children.

A very simple recipe, largely borrowed from the guys over at a Tale of Painters, we will need the following paints:

Rhinox Hide, Brass Scorpion, Warplock Bronze, Agrax Earthshade.

Paint the areas you want to be gold with Rhinox Hide to start with, taking care to make sure you do cover all of those areas.

Once that layer has dried, paint over all the previous layer with Brass Scorpion.

Final stage then is to paint the area again with Warplock Bronze and once that has dried, wash over the gold areas with Agrax Earthshade. As a final highlight you can also return to the edges of the gold and use Warplock Bronze again as a highlight.

As I said, it is quite a simple recipe that I am using on these guys. I hope this guide is useful to someone, and hopefully I will be back with finished pictures of this guy and his powerfisted buddy very soon! Thanks for reading.

Calandra Truthsayer, Oracle of the Glimmerwood

Another Troll down on my quest to completely paint all the models I have for that army, this time it is the Oracle herself, Calandra Truthsayer.

I really enjoy painting the Trolls and in some ways I am disappointed to only have one Pyre Troll and a Mauler left to go (until I buy a few more!).

Anyway, please enjoy the photos and, as always, thanks for looking!

Dark Vengeance Chaos Chosen Marines... Part 2

Here we have another 2 completed Chaos Chosen Space Marines from the Dark Vengeance box set, ready to join the other models I have finished from that set. Only 2 more to go now!

Not much else to say really, so just enjoy the other pictures I have taken of these two guys. As always all comments appreciated and when the last 2 are complete I will put pictures up of the complete squad and all the Chaos Space Marines units from the DV set. Enjoy!

On the Painting Table... February

A week in to February already? Boy this year is starting to fly by! Anyway, it's time to quickly catch up on what I managed to get done last month and what the plan is for the month ahead.

Of the four targets I had last month, I only completed the two Chaos Space Marine Chosen and the squad of Trollblood Pyg Burrowers. I was hoping to have the another two of the Chosen finished, but didn't quite manage it due to one thing or another.

As you can see in the picture above, the two Chosen are well on their way to being completed. What I have got planned for after, I hear you ask? Well, I am going to carry on with my aim of finishing off painting my Trollbloods, with Calandra Truthsayer being the next model from the faction up for a spot of colour.

I am also hoping to complete the remnants of the Chosen squad and finish off the remaining two models this month as well. I have saved my two favourite models from the Dark Vengeance box set till last, so I am quite looking forward to getting to these guys!

As I know I have quite a busy month ahead, completing just those 5 models alone would be an achievement. However, if I can get through them I have one further paint job and a modelling job that I want to get stuck in to.

The paint job is back with my Trollbloods and would see me finish off the penultimate model that I currently have, the Pyre Troll, which will take me away from painting trolls in their usual blue (for my force anyway) and look more to a burnt brown colour, which should be interesting!

The modelling job is the beginning of the making of a Keeper of Secrets for my Chaos Daemons, who will be allied with my Chaos Space Marines. The Daemons allies won't be a huge detachment and will mainly just comprise of the Greater Daemon, a Herald, a few Daemonettes and a couple of Hellflayers. I may add in a few Tzeentchian units in the future, but certainly nothing until a new codex for the Daemons is released.

So on the painting/modelling front there is certainly enough to keep me busy when I can fit it in (I think fitting a new bathroom could seriously hamper this though, but challenges are there to be defeated!).

On the gaming front I should have at least another couple of games this month and hopefully should be able to have one big Space Marines v Tyranids game (2 Space Marines v 1 Tyranid player) which should a nice, bloody punch up, which I am really excited about. Hopefully we can get that sorted and spend a day pulverising everything in sight!

Look forward to updating you all on these models as I get them done. Thanks for reading!
