Terrain build: Bremer walls - 1m of terrain constructed & painted

For some reason, I had the idea of these stuck in my head for about a week after seeing a pic of a modern army base - this was a bit of an experiment to see if I could do a quick build of 20 panels...

B&C Speed Builds - Elites: Command playas

Week 3 of the B&C Blood & Zeal Challenge and focus is on getting elites built. I've only got a couple of models for this - the rest of what would have been a command squad in last edition.

B&C Speed Builds - Troops: Sniper scouts

2nd week of the B&C build challenge and troops are on the list. I seem to take ages to build up regular marines, but scouts seem to be a much faster option. Build & test paint below...

Captain WIP #1

Having come off the HQ building challenge, I've jumped into starting on my 5th Co. captain - first time working on gold armour and seems to be coming up well.

B&C Speed Builds - HQs: Captain & Lieutenants

I've been mulling over which bits would eventually make up my captain, and generally putting off actually doing it by working on more troops... The B&C Blood & Zeal challenge has been a good excuse to just commit and just start my HQs. Captain & 2 lieutenants got a good leg up as a result...

Dark Imperium: Chaos WIP #2 (Poxwalkers)

I think I have a new found love for washes. Not only are they ridiculously quick to add some colour, but they add highlight and shade in one step. Plus a few colours together gets all sorts of interesting effects. 

26 Poxwalkers got to be the test subjects for batch painting, and I kept semi-faithful to the approach that our-lord-Duncan outlines on Warhammer TV.

Dark Imperium: Chaos WIP #1

Yes, it came out ~9 months ago and yes, the Dark Imperium box comes with a lot of very cool stuff... but I've continued to hold off on the Primaris since I have ~40-odd OldMarines in progress and promised to not add more unfinished WIP marines.

However, that doesn't mean I have to hold off on the Chaos side...
