Raptors with Meltaguns

Added some paint to one of the built-but-not-painted Raptor squads.

I used the red accents on the weapons with one of my Havoc units and liked it, so tried the same again here. Not sure I like it as much. They just feel quite busy.

When edge highlighting I went a shade lighter than normal and didn’t like the outcome. In the end I toned it down with a couple of basecoat washes.

Still need to do some talon equipped breatheren. Next time I do jumpy dudes it’s happening!

Raptors Ancients

I’ve a backlog of raptors assembled and waiting for paint. This unit was already assembled and painted as a unit of 8, yet was in need of a refresh.

Searched the bits box for the relevant parts and assembled the two missing squad members.

Pleased with how these came out and now thinking about converting a squad of the others into Warp Talons…

Breacher Squad

Finished up the Breacher squad.

I bought a few more shields for converting some more in future, but a squad of 10 seems like a good starting point.

I reckon they work well with the Leviathans.

Chaos Warhound

So ages ago I bought a Warhound. What arrived in an atrociously packaged and damaged box was not what I was expecting and it’s taken ages to rebuild it. Pretty much every section was broken apart so reconstruction meant pinned and epoxied joints and some touching up of the interior paint.

It came with laser blasters and a plasma cannon too. It’s ready for exterior paint now but will be in the to do list for a long time now whilst I chug through the 8mm scale Titans for Adeptus Titanicus.

Work in Progress: August 2018

As always seem to have a multitude of models on the go. They’re sitting at various stages of complete, but some need more work or motivation than others and get reprioritised in favour of something that’s a bit more inspiring.

I decided that I wanted some dedicated close combat terminators and as part of a job lot of figures ended up with some Cataphractii Terminators. These one are all equipped with a pair of lightning claws and in addition to these I’ve five chaos terminators who are going to get clawed up too. Plus I’ve started gathering bits for some thunder hammer and storm shield troops too.

Then there’s the Chaos Warhound Titan. The one that’s sat in a box under the table for months. That was sold as a complete finished model and arrived in bits. Well the new base for that is underway and I’ll start thinking about pinning and gluing it back together now. Just mulling over whether to magnetise the waist joint…
