Angels Encarmine Sternguard

Hey guys here is an AE Sternguard squad that I have painted for Snake Eyes over at Tabletop War.

I tried my best to mach the color of the original models. I used the same colors as the original but still ended up slightly redder and brighter: even after 3 washes of red over the top!

Five of these guys have Chapterhouse Studios magnetized combi-bolters, I think they look pretty good! Be warned though you have to drill out all the holes for the magnets in the gun part of the weapon and it is a pain.

One final note, this darned cold weather is killing me, I had to brush seal these models because of it, and that takes close to 24 hours to fully cure.

Tomorrow I will post up the rest of this commission.

AoV Librarian Terminator

Here is a Librarian for Magilla's Angels of Vengeance army. I have finally finished him. I feel bad that it has taken so long, but my injuries have slowed my painting significantly. On top of that this is a repaint as the US post office lost the package with the original miniature and there has been no sign of the package in a search conducted by the USPS.

I'd like to thank Mags for his patience in this time of recovery for me. I had hoped to send him last week, but as you can see that did not happen, my left hand has been shaky from all the rehab and pain. He will be trucking his way to SoCal on Monday via UPS or Fedex!

I went with a slightly darker blue for the armor to match the broodish nature of the AoV's black armor. I have noticed that I forgot to paint his teeth and need to touch up few minor things, grr....

I really like the way the glow on the staff script/whirls turned out

Angels of Vengeance Objective Markers

Here are 5 objective markers for Magilla's Angels of Vengeance. These are a last minute addition to his 2nd commission for the army.

He just wanted some simple bronze marine statues to use with the army for the Bay Area Open that is happening this coming weekend. I will also be at the event snapping lots and lots of Pics as the staff photographer!

Also before I forget, I will be finishing the Gaming outside the box series next week as this commission has got me otherwise occupied.

Angels of Vengeance Decals

Success! It only took 10 tries, I had forgotten that you float the printable decals. There was also some odd red bleed into some of the "white" portions of the decals. I am going to need to clean this up.

I have one more issue to overcome with the decals, the morons sent me clear decal sheet instead of white sheet. So I am having to paint the decal area white before placement, Grrr.....

It'll take me the better part of today and tomorrow to get them all done, but the pic shows the effort will pay off. My Buddy Kev has offered to help get the rest of the decals done and cleaned up tomorrow, score!

The end result it pretty damned kool looking. I still need to clean up the shoulder pad around the icon, but this gives y'all a general idea of how nice it looks!

10 Days of Vengeance: day 4 delay

The series will be delayed one day since the replacement decal sheets have arrived and need some printing. I will be placing the Decals on the army and resume posting tomorrow.

Until then

10 Days of Vengeance: day 3

Here is the third installment of the Angels of Vengeance! I had planned on breaking up the Terminator posts with the Bike squad, but the pics were bad, so I will re-shoot tonight.

The toughest part of painting this army was balancing the dark greys enough to still look like black armor. Since the goal was to have a nice looking high tabletop quality army I think they turned out nicely. Painting them en-mass like this has really taught me what not to do next time I have a shedload of black models to paint.

Until tomorrow!

10 Days of Vengeance: day 2

It figures I would screw up the scheduling of the 2nd post, geeze. Well here it is a day later than planned.

You’ll notice that the chapter badges are missing, this is due to a bad batch of decal paper. I will be sending a full set of decals to the client to put on himself when the replacement paper arrives.

With 35 Assault terminator models in the list I worked hard to have a variety of poses.

Here is Terminator squad 2, enjoy.

Until tomorrow!

10 Days of Vengeance: day 1

Over the next ten days I will be putting up pics of the completed Angels of Vengeance commission army I painted. I want to take this opportunity to apologize to my client, who has had his army delayed due to my life being a train wreck at the moment. At the same time I want to thank him for his patients during my time of crisis.

So here is the first squad of Thunderhammer and Stormshield Terminators.

Until tomorrow!

In Space only Chaos can hear you scream!

Battlefleet Gothic is inbound to Galaxy in Flames early June!

My buddy is coming home on leave from the military and has a hankering to play some BFG. Oddly enough the last time I played BFG is right before he was heading out to Germany 3 years ago.

The really kool thing about BFG is that it is one of the more reasonable GW Specialist games. Most of the boxes have not had large price increases since the initial release, shocking! The blister packs have gone up 6 or 7 bucks in 12 years, but that is still not horrible considering that this is GW.

The above pic is of some of my Chaos fleet taken last year when I was thinking about diving back into gothic. The strange thing is that BFG was what I was going to revive just prior to developing Killzone. I sure did end up making the right choice in the end!

The ships were painted in 2000 shortly after the release of the game. I chose the scheme because I wanted a generic color scheme and I always had a thing for the Gamilon Empire ships in Starblazers.

I’d love to share some more pics but my camera has died and gone to digital heaven. I’ll be picking up a replacement ASAP.

Games Workshop in Ruins!

My buddy just sent me pics of the ruin that was built when we worked together at GW. It contains a corpse for everyone of the hobby centers staff members. The patrons of our shop absolutely loved the building. We hated to send it down to LA, in the end we should have kept it for ourselves.

This building went down in infamy after it was built and sent down to LA for Gamesday 2004. It was deemed inappropriate and was stomped to death by the staff of the LA Battle Bunker. It got the entire staff of our store a verbal thrashing for being inappropriate and not fostering the proper creativity in the hobby. It sure did make us northern Cali guys despise the ones from down south. So goes life!

No matter the sorted history I still think it was a shame that this creative ruin was destroyed.

Edit: I'd like to give a shout out to Ryan, John, Steve and Joe; those were the days guys!

Commission Test Model

Here is the test model for the Angels of Vengeance. I still need to clean a few things up, but this does convey the paint scheme as I have envisioned it. I was not sure what to do with the Thunderhammer, but I think the blue wash over the gunmetal works nicely.

The client asked for a dark and brooding themed paint job with no exaggerated highlights on the black, he also wanted the red accent color to remain dark.

The bases are the flagstone ones like I use from Secret Weapon miniatures. He wants the bases to convey flagstone being reclaimed by the jungle, so I need to work out the rest of the basing.

Now I need to get approval from my client before I dig into the rest of the army.

Angels of Vengence Commission Army

So someone contacted me to paint his Nasty Angels of Vengeance tourney army. it's 2000 points of mostly Thunderhammer Stormshield Terminators. He has asked for the army to be painted to a good tabletop standard. Although I will be doing some serious conversion and painting on his counts as Belial.

So the army contains 35 Terminators, 6 Bikes, 1 Attack Bike and 2 Land speeder Typhoons.

Here is most of the models, I am still waiting on a few things to show up.
