Officio Prefectus Commissar

Can’t believe I actually got it finished today. I’m not too happy with the face but it’s a damn sight better than more of my previous attempts. After all, it is a learning process 🙂

Now, onto either some possessed Chaos Marines or my Taurox Prime. Decisions, decisions…

Officio Prefectus Commissar – WIP

05/30/2014 Leave a comment

Those of you who know me on Facebook will most likely know that due to ‘business pressures’ my holiday next week has even cancelled. As such, my planned Big Project is being pushed back for a while so instead I’ve decided to press ahead with this chap.

Here he is after half an hour’s work.

I love Commissars (as a manager in the civil service, I can certainly relate to them 😉 ), indeed the original metal Commissar models from the late eighties first inspired me to put down the blood red power armour and pick up the bloodied and torn flack jacket.

I’m going to enjoy this 🙂

It’s done!  I’m really pleased with how this has turned out, and in time for Miniature Monday 🙂

And to show you again what it looked like before I got to work.

Leman Russ Resurrection – Part 4

05/18/2014 3 comments

After taking some time off for a family bereavement, I thought the best thing to get stuck into was my erstwhile Leman Russ revamp.

Today I managed to get the base layer down and made a start on blocking out the metallics.

I decided to manually apply the basecoat as Catachan Green doesn’t agree with my airbrush (well, much of this is due to my general ineptitude with all things airbrushy) and I wanted to practice applying an even flat colour over a large area.

So far so good, this won’t be a work of art but at least it’ll better match the rest of my armour.

For Sale!

A while back I mentioned that I’d be selling some rare hobby stuff for a friend.  Here’s what’s on offer.

Bloodthirster 1 Realm of Chaos 01

While it was near overwhelmingly tempting to make an offer myself, I’m trying to be good for once.  If you’re interested you can find more details and bid should you like them by following these links:

Dark Angels Tactical Squad

As per usual, this took me far too long to complete but here’s my full Tactical Squad from the Dark Vengeance box.

I really enjoyed painting these and the temptation to paint the other tac squad I have is great. However, I’d like to clear a few more half-finished projects before I go back to The Unforgiven.

It’s alive! It took me longer than is anticipated but here’s how the old girl looks now.

At the last minute I decided to replace the hull-mounted Lascannon with a Heavy Bolter and add on a removable ‘Dozer Blade but aside from that it looks as I had originally intended.

I’ll get it undercoated before I turn in, I should be able to have it looking all pretty by the end of the week.
