I have five of these Dreadclaws to paint up this is the first. The others were in a bad state and were sent off to Renew Models for vapour blasting and have just come back so no excuses now not to get these finished!
Again custom decals developed for these and pretty pleased with how they have worked out.
Might look at trying some weathering powders on some later models, but I am also painting up two drop pods for the Blood Angels using zenithal methods so we will see what a difference that makes too.
Eight Legion, C Battallion, 19th Company, Anvillus Dreadclaw No. 3
I am going to develop the grey and blue theme on the armoured vehicles as they seem to complement each other well.
I have a lot of vehicles to paint up but wasn’t really very pleased with efforts on armour from last year. My wife bought me an Element Games painting course with David Soper for earlier this year but due to COVID-19 it never happened so I have had a go.
I also had a go at making some Skull Reapers company graphics. Pretty pleased with the artwork to reality concept, but need to work on the application and varnishing stages with later models.
Suitably adorned with icons of terror, death and gore. Oh and chains.
Magnetised the Bolter turrets so that they can be positioned too.
Think that the weathering worked okay. May try some more rust and weathering powder effects on later models,
Grimdark justice in a Banksy style. I took inspiration from WW2 US Army Corp vehicle markings. This one translates as Troop Transport, Eight Legion, C Battalion, 19th Company Tank, 1st Rhino. Produced by Mondus Occulum Forge on Mars in M30.
Finished the other two traitor marine bikers. Really pleased with these although the matt varnish came out dusty. I have found if you hit it again with a second coat then this can solve the problem. I may try that at some point…
Still preferring this model of bike. I think that the mudguards just work better for conversion purposes…
Long range communications specialist gear on the back of this bike.
Last of the spiked wheels from Master Crafted Miniatures. I will order some more for the rest of the bikes. I have also made 10 resin bases and have just made another 5 to speed things up on that front. I will re-use some for the loyalist Blood Angels bikes too.
I really liked the new Obliterator models and decided that I wanted some more. I didn’t want the same poses so spent some time doing conversion work to make all four of the models distinctively different.
Bolter fury! Twin Storm Bolters plus twin Heavy Bolters for plenty of dakka dakka dakka.
Power claw, Lascannon, Missile Launcher and Heavy Flamer. Thinking about the next ones, four is good, but six seems better.
