Heresy Era Terminators Revamped

I finally got round to  re-basing and updating these guys. The re-basing went quite quickly but the addition of the decals was definitely the time consuming bit. Looking much nicer now though I think!

Not much else to say really other than Enjoy the pictures!

2014: A new year, same old promises!

Its been far too long since I posted anything on here. Its not like I've not been doing any painting though, its just that its all been Flames of War stuff which can be seen here.

However I don't want to neglect this blog entirely so my first job will be a bit of house keeping. I intend 2014 to be a year of consolidation and de-cluttering and to help me keep track of my progress I've decided to add a specific page on the blog summarising what's been achieved. I'm also going to re-organise the gallery page somehow but I'm not quite sure how it will look yet.

So to get things started here are some picture of an Ultramarines Commander I've had sat around half painted for ages and is now finally finshed. Lets hope the rest of 2014 carries on as well as it started!

1st Tactical Squad Revamped

Progress has been somewhat slow of late but in the small amount of time I've had I finally got the revamp done on the original tactical squad. I made a second transfer sheet on a clear background and they worked much better than the white background. Anyway here are a couple of pictures.

Making your own decals

Continuing with my recent efforts to update some of my older miniatures I've turned my attention to the original tactical squad and particularly the lack of any identifying icons so I decided they'd need some decals. I could've just bought the Forgeworld ones but to ensure all the icons look roughly the same across the whole any and be consistant with the other models such as the standard bearer I decided making my own would be best.

DIY Forgeworld MkIc Deimos Rhino

A while ago when Forgeworld release their Heresy Era Rhino. As a model I really like it as a way to add some extra flavour to a pre-heresy army. However at £33 quid I didn't really fancy buying any, especially seeing as I already had the normal Rhino models and Forgeworld no longer seem to offer these models as conversion kits. Well I had a bit of spare time the other day but not enough to get on with painting so I had a go a knocking up a version of my own.

More updating old models

Continuing with my decision to update the original units of this project to bring them in line with my more recent stuff I re-based the standard bearer and apothecary and updated the colour scheme.

Dreadnought Re-painted

I haven't had a huge amount of time for modelling and painting recently so I decided to do something simple which I've been meaning to do for a while. Since I started my Death Guard the style has changed slightly leaving the dreadnought looking a bit out of place so I thought I'd give it a bit of a revamp.
