Blood Angels Furioso Dreadnought Finished!

Helo again!

I just couldn't let this bad boy WIP for long and got it finished today! I have tested myself to several new things on this one, mainly ways to improve my weathering techniques. I am overall happy with how it turned out (and it seems that my client-friend is happy too :) ). I especially like the reds (although AGAIN the pic is not the best I could get... this red is the biggest pain in a photographers life I'm sure about it!).

So there it is, finished and waiting for your comments and votes

Blood Angels Furioso Dreadnought WIP

Hello again!

I would like to share some of my work again with you people, this time is a WIP of yet another Blood Angels piece, a Furioso Dreadnought.

This is not the new model as many would have thought, its a conversion using parts of the plastic Venerable and some Forgeworld claws and other BA bits.

I paint so many Blood Angels lately that people may think I actually play with them, but they are all commission pieces. I always liked BAs though, for their rich fluff and their paintsceme so it comes natural to me to have fun painting them even though they aren't my models.

Anyways, enough with the chatter and on to the pics...

There are quite a few things to finish, mainly the claws which I haven't yet decided the colorscheme (maybe some suggestions would be nice of you!) and of course the base. 

So what do you think? Am I in the right track here?

Our new Warhammer table and Terrain!

Hello again! This time I would like to share with you the progress of a table that I am building with a friend.

It has always been a dream to build my own table one day, in a place where I could spread all my bits and pieces of modelling activity. A place where I could create all these terrain pieces I always wanted and play battles the way I would like.

This childhood dream has finally come to life in the past few months where I am in the process of building a Warhammer table along with a friend.

You could try and guess what is the next terrain piece prepared on the back table...not the big board, that is something for future posts to discuss... :P

As you can see we've started by creating a generic table with lots of woods and hills, some craters and of course the regular ruins. I am really pleased with the way these pieces came out and I can't wait to play my first battle in it! Unfortunately most pics are not so good as they were taken in a hurry but I will definitely get some more good shots when I get the chance! Hopefully this will happen tomorrow so keep an eye for an update, maybe a battle report but definitely some pics.

So what do you think so far? Any terrain ideas you would like to share?

Darnath Lysander

I always felt that my Imperial Fists Captain hadn't got the love that it deserved! It was the model that started it all since I saw its release back in the days of 4th edition... I still think that its one of the best models this company ever produced and it was enough to motivate me build a whole army based on it. I thought that now that I am playing with my photo-settings it would be the perfect chance to take some new shots of this old paintjob of mine and get some feedback again.

Everything in this model screams determination and righteousness. Hopefully this would make me motivated to finish my Terminators at last... As always your comments are more than welcome as well as your votes

Blood Angels Honour Guard

Hello everybody!

It's been quite a while from my last post but real life messed with my hobbies quite well and I had minimal time to spend with anything other than sleeping :P

Anyways, I managed to finish another piece of my Blood Angels commission and this time I also tried something different with photographing, I took a full squad shot, something that was made possible with my new lightbox...

You may have noticed that I have posted the sergeant with the hand flamer again but since I'm playing around with new photo settings I thought I should try and take some more pictures of him along with the whole squad.

I must say that although I am finally starting to get the results I like, red is a true pain in the a** to get it right...
I really love my new background though...!

So I really would like to hear what you think and as always see your votes in CoolMiniOrNot
