MARCH PAINTING SHOWCASE

march

Apologies for another rather late monthly round up of March’s hobby goodness from all the geeks and gals in at the home of the Spartans. Remember you can always click on the pictures for a closer look so lets get straight into it…

We’re off to a very strong start with Steve who has finished up his entry for the painting comp at salute, which is absolutely stunning love the placement of the lighting to make the sheened finish to the Alien head.. The piece is simple yet it absolutely oozes character and looks so dynamic especially with the water effects which he has absolutely nailed. Really top drawer lad, not sure how he did in the painting comp but its a winner in my eyes, have a feast on this!

Next we have Rob who has been painting up some iron warriors for his 40k force, which look  sweet in MK3 armour. very nice and crisp silver with hazard striping trim to really make them stand out. He has also done some mutated chaos things which again tie into his iron warriors and also have some really  nice flesh tones painted throughout. Finally he has painted some spear dudes on horses, which look really nice and is a change to the usual orkish stuff he normally paints. good stuff mate!

Next up we have Si who has managed to find a little mojo again and painted up 3 Horus Heresy consuls for his Alpha Legion and a termite drill to ride in as well as a couple of characters for Paul’s Raven Guard with power weapons. Finally he painted up 2 more D&D characters for when Dunk decides to kill him off in their current campaign. One is a monk Tortle (which is simply ‘Geordie’ for Turtle) and the other is a gnome bard.  

Up next we have Dunk with a plethora of pictures of the many models he has been working on, which have been the new chaos marines. Love the crispness of the paint job and the classic black and gold scheme always looks so good. Really nice job on the character to give an OSL effect on the weapon and again on the cheeky litte genestealer cultist. What can i say that we haven’t said before about Dunkers paint jobs… they are proper loverly!

Next we have Dan G who has been painting some bigger models with some imperial Knights and an armiger for his 40K force along with 2 guardsmen. Great work on the metallics on the knights to show a nice crisp trim to counter the deep matte blue of the armour. great stuff Dan nice to see you painting a wide range of models at the mo!

Next we have Greggles who has been working on his Custodes for 40k and continuing his jetbike chap. Love the use of the shield on the bike to give a little uniqueness to the character and the scheme is nice and different as well. Gold looks really rich and deep and all round very nicely done job! well done mate.

Next we have Lewis and unfortunately the pictures aren’t the best to see all the detail that has gone into these lovely looking Eldar Harlequins and Sameal on his jetbike for Dark Angels. The ‘Quins have been done so nicely its such a shame you cant see them properly. really good work Lewis!

Next we have John who has been working on some weird and wonderful looking models, with some really nice flesh tones across them. John has been playing with adding colour into his palette to help create interesting layers to his paint schemes. Plus John likes to paint weird shit so it works really well with that as well. great job mate!

Next we have Phil who has been balls deep in Necromunda with painting up some Ambots and a Rogue Psyker, which are looking briliant. love the worn effects on the AMbot and the dust effects really give it a worn and battered feel. The Psykers robes look really nice and  offer a strong contrast to the sun kissed flesh above, which has been done very well. this is noice work Phill!

Up next we have Paul who has continued his theme of smashing stuff out to a high standard, this time its some more Adeptus Titanicus knights and boy do they look sweet. He’s painted them so cleanly they look like they are 28mm scale!! Lovely as always matey! Great scheme by the way.

And last but no means least we have Will with a crunchy Armadillo, which i absolutely love. The NNM steel has been done well with some nice blends and the natural armour looks realistic the way it has been painted. Its such a cool model that looks even better with a sweet paint job like this, awesome work buddy!

will

So thats it for March, i hope its got the hobby throbby going for you and we shall return very soon with Aprils round up!

Next we have Greg  who has painted up a knight for his 40K army and very stern cigar smoking imperial guard! Loving vibrant foliage on the base and the complimentary red and blue colours on the armour which will look great as an allied unit to his crimson fists!! Also nice face on the angry dude, awesome work Greggles!!!

Next up we have James and some reinforcements his SBG force, which are looking fantastic! Love the armour and banners and the green is a subtle accent colour, which really ties them all together. These are great and we cant to see them in action at the club soon!

Up next we have John who has actually done some hobby so while it may not be 100% finished we thought it was worth showing off as he rarely lifts a finger nowadays!! love the transitions on the water swirls? The sword looks great too!! we cant wait to see this finished soon!

john.jpg

Next we have Luke and a collection of knightly characters, which have been painted to a lovely high standard. Especially like the effect on the wooden shield that gives it a nice worm effect. Luke’s painting is really coming on in leaps and bounds each month an we wait for next months entry with baited breath.

luke.jpg

Up next we have Pete who has been busy going back in and repairing and tidying up his 2 dread after a small falling accident!! love the transitions on these models and the use of transfers really make them pop as the elegant and pompous heresy era blood angles. Great weathering as well mate!

Next we have Matthew who has taken a break from primaris blood angels and made as start on some nurgley deathguard which looks really nice as he’s started layering down the filth associated with the legion. great work on the horns, cant wait to see it finished.

matthew

Next we have Neil who has painted another collection of fantastic looking models! i love the dirty gold on the custodes and it contrasts nicely against the power weapons. He’s also added some more mechanicum to his existing force which as always looks fantastic with that pale blue and red martian bases. He’s also done a lovely assassin and some grey knights.. busy month for Neil and they all look great!!

Next we have Rob and a lovely ensemble of SBG models, which are a nice addition to his army and look great especially against the greenery of the bases. Rob also made a great looking support character for the recent Spaartanax sedition heresy event and his world eaters, which got quite few comments and votes at the event. awesome work bud!

Next we have Si who has been continuing his work on his Heresy era Dark Angels with a 15 man assault squad in Mk2 armour and a Mk4 apothecary made from the FW moritat model and the bright green power weapons really help them pop against the black armour.

Next up we have Will and a really awesome skaven blood bowl team, which have been painted with loads of detail like the names on the bases, the flag and the tactics board on the coach… this is a lovely little touch! they truly are a magnificent looking team, you should be very proud!!

Next we have Nick who has been beavering away at some really cool looking models from the Aliens franchise. He has really captured the feeling of the xenos from the films in matching the colour of their chitin and nicely tied in with the bases of a very 80’s looking space ship floor! great stuff mate!

 

Y por último, pero no menos importante, tenemos al señor Marlow con un millón de fotos de los millones de modelos en los que ha estado trabajando febrilmente. Estos se ven muy bien y el comienzo de un ejército de gran apariencia. más un gato es siempre una pequeña bonificación agradable! Grandes tonos de carne y mano alzada una vez más, mes a mes, el Sr. Marlow está mejorando y mejorando. ¡sigue así compañero!

 

SO there we have it for another month, we hope there’s lots of inspiration for you to get something painted for March’s showcase, so until then i will leave you with the immortal warning from Sr. Marlow – A quien haya robado mi copia de Microsoft Office, te encontraré. Tienes mi palabra!

Happy New Year and welcome to the first painting showcase of 2019, we have another monthly round up of hobby from the geeks and gals from the Spartans. So without further ado lets get on with it and remember you can always click on the pictures for a closer look.

first up we have Matt and his rather glorious Custodes force that he has been working on for the last year or so and well like they say all good things come to those who wait… and have the patience of a saint!! the detail is incredible and probably the best custodes army i’ve seen and looks even better in the flesh! Love the marble effects and the blue black is a great contrast colour to break up the golden armour and give a unique scheme to the force. Top drawer mate!

 

Up next we have Si who has not painted much at all in recent months but has broke in the new year with a dog he has painted like his own beloved pet. The paint job is a bit woof in places but overall not bad!

Next we have Dunkers and a rather large collection of genestealer cult entries, all of which look splendiferous!!! Dunk has created a really clean and crisp paint job on all of these models with nice blending and great use of vibrant colours and lovely flesh tones. Just have a closer look at them all they look lush!!! awesome work buddy!

Next we have Dan G and a rather dashing looking Armiger knight with some nice hazard stripes that break up the scheme nicely and some very clean looking metallic trim across the whole model but i also really like the green lens… nice work Dan!!!

dang

Next we have Rob and a real mix of systems that he’s been working on in january. first of all is a weird squig mine… nuff said?!! then some truly excellent looking Adeptus Titanicus models in a reaver and 2 warhound scout titans. the flames have been done really well and is a lovely scheme that really stands out on the table top as legio titans should! and finally some lovely looking middle earth models that i think are glorious… all in all some of Robs best work to date!

A continuación tenemos al señor Marlow y una gran cantidad de entradas para el mes de enero. Amando el trabajo de la carne y los ojos en los cadians, realmente sigue mejorando con cada modelo y es increíble ver el desarrollo cada mes. Un acorazado muy agradable con líneas limpias, pero una vez más, hay un muy buen trabajo de mano libre por aquí y en todas partes como un jefe. Fabtastic trabajo señor Marlow !!!!

Next we have Jay who hasn’t posted anything for a while but its been worth the wait as these are a great couple of models. I especially love the caped scout looking fella with the lovely free hand on the shoulder pad and the crisp looking armour and flowing cape. Lovely stuff Jay!

Next we have James and very cool looking Orlock Necromunda fella, I really like the green colour scheme as its not something you usually see and the leather jacket and bag have been done really well and we cant wait see the rest of the gang fighting amongst the scum and villainy of the lower hive dwellers! love it James.

Onto the next entry with Paul and an excellent collection of models from different systems, starting with some smashing looking knights for his adeptus titanicus legios. love the colours and the dark trim that have been posed very dynamically dtrifing to war. he has also done a small collection of super hero’s, which look great but the pièce de résistance is the awesome job he has done on the black fortress models which are simply stunning! really great work bud!

Next we have Lewis and a great looking death guard nurgly looking marine, i like the darker green effect then you usually see as it makes it stand out a bit from the other armies you see. nice and crisp edge highlights and some nice flesh work and rust throughout really ties this together! lovely stuff mate!

Up next we have Bill and a grim and dark looking grotesque from the dark eldar range. Its nice to see Bill pop up again with a new model as its been a while and its good to know that he’s still hobbying now that he has moved up north and porking the pig farmer! Awesome work bud and the paintings not bad either!

On to the last but not least Matt Hobbit and a guildball team he painted for Dan, which i think is excellent!!!  love the chest with the map and al the robes and clothes have been done really nicely and the whole team looks clean and really well painted. Awesome work Matt i’m sure Dan will be chuffed to bits with them.!

DECEMBER PAINTING SHOWCASE

logo december

Ho ho ho and welcome to a festive painting showcase, we hope you have enjoyed the holidays with your loved ones and your new toys. So here we have another monthly round up of hobby from the geeks and gals from the Spartans. So without further ado lets get on with it and remember you can always click on the pictures for a closer look.

So first up we have Rob and his new collection of Orky buggies and bikes, which are looking fantastic with nice vibrant colours and dirty metallics. Rob has spent time on the flesh and it looks great giving the subtle highlights and shadows to help make the model pop against the reds and yellows of the buggy.  Also love the dirt on the bases, top work bud.

Up next we have a rather cheeky entry from Luke and a seriously cool looking Slaaneshi six titted, sword armed psychopathic seductress called Deborah. Lovely skin tones across the whole model and great depth added through the highlights and the shadows and some nice neat highlights on the swords and antlers. this looks so cool i really want to see her in the flesh and fondle her piggie style nipples. There’s no higher praise than that!

Luego tenemos al Sr. Marlow y una fantástica colección de varias entradas, incluida la beca del anillo (¡otra vez!) Y algunos grandes minis de DnD. Realmente me gusta la máquina mech azul con las ventanas teñidas de rojo que han sido muy bien hechas. ¡Pero mi favorito absoluto es el conejo de Jessica pintado seductoramente en el costado del avión! ¡Eso se ve increíble! Los Orlocks también tienen un esquema único pero excelente que los hace sobresalir y un gran jb en los ojos. ¡Me encantan las entradas de este mes, Sr. Marlow, son jodidamente maravillosas!

Next we have DJ and some fierce superwomen he painted up for his daughters for Christmas presents. These look super duper and some great contrasts and highlights across the flesh and fabrics, i’m sure the girls will be extremely happy with these stocking fillers! Nice work Super dad.

Next we have Dan G and a great looking ghost that is carrying its own hangman’s noose. Love the wood effect and the rope as they have been highlighted really well to give a realistic feel alongside the spectral colours of the ghost. nice work Dan!!!

dang

Up next we have Greggles and some lovely gothic terrain, which has been painted in a rally nice grimy and realistic fashion but has been offset nicely with the vibrant mossy and grassy greens and the odd flowers. These are great looking terrain pieces that really makes the polka dot table cloth come to life!! Nice work mate.

On to the next entry with Dunk and his rather dashing 40K Death Guard all nurgley and lovely toothy maws. But i wanna focus on just how good the Genestealer cultists are looking!!! I know he has spent a lot of time on these and the flesh on the head looks insanely good with nice blends and liver spots and veins delicately painted in and highlighted up very nicely indeed. These are looking top banana!

Next we have Matt I and his lovely looking knight with all the guns, great work on the metallics to give some depth and great looking red armour plates that have been broken up with black panels and some well placed transfers. looks awesome mate!!

On to the next we have Paul E and his Dwarven character for a DnD campaign and a Blood Angels Librarian dreadnought. Love the bronzen armour of the little fella and the power weapons on the dreadnought look like they are sourcing with energy! lovely Stuff Paul, keep it up!

Next we have Si who actually managed to paint something in December, which was 2 of the Forge World Necromunda Hired Guns. He is hoping to finally get a gang finished to start playing some games in the new year. Si has focused on trying to improve his TMM and flesh tones and they have come out quite well.

Next we have Dan King and his lovely looking 40K Death Guard all chaosy and nurgley in his unique and distinct style which is a nice change up to the GW style of painting as it gives a real depth to the models with lots of nice little subtle pieces throughout each piece and really needs a closer look, love these mate!

Next we have Rich and his latest Guild ball team, which are looking really nice and the pics don’t do them justice as the fabrics and bases have been nicely done to give then to give them a really atmospheric look. Nice work bud i like the symmetry of the uniform across the team as it ties them all together.

Next up we have Phil and some seriously cool conversions to make a kill team of Eversor assassins, which is such a cool idea and they look so good together as a unit and have simple but dynamic poses. Phil has also painted up some cool looking Necromunda models i especially love the water gatherer and the scheme he’s used. Nice to see some models painted up by Phil! lovely stuff!

Next we have Matt and some ridiculously good looking Custodes that he’s been working on for some time. The gold is so deep and rich and complimented nicely with the purple plumes. Love the power claw’s electric blue that’s been so smoothly blended but absolutely love the cloaks with the freehand detail, so go back and have a closer look at them!! Love it Mat cant wait to see the full army on the tabletop soon!!

Next is Kieran and a lovely looking dude with some nice dark rich tones and lovely edge highlights to break up the model. Lovely looking jewel/crystal painted up and i like the decayed look to the sword. good work mate!

once again a great collection of entries for the end of 2018. So happy new year everyone and we hope to see more great entries in 2019. So once and for all for 2018 i will leave you with another gem from Sr. Marlow.

A rather late welcome to another monthly round up of Novembers hobby goodness from all the geeks and gals in at the home of the Spartans. Its another bumper month with nice variety of game systems and models on offer. Remember you can always click on the pictures for a closer look so lets get straight into it…

First up we have DJ with a kings ransom of entries on his own… there’s so much hobby here to look through its extremely difficult to pick out individual highlights but the Batman model looks just like the comic book art and the Minotaur with the axe looks awesome but really you should just spend your time having a look through this catalogue of goodness! A very high quality and productive month for DJ!!

Next we have Charlie and his first entry into the showcase with a fantastic looking marine with nice subtle NMM across the figure along with some lovely patterned freehand and OSL from the plasma gun to really give a sense of atmosphere. All in all a very technical paint job that looks incredible! well played sir, very well played!!

Up next we have Dan King with a great looking collection of Escher gangers and Chaos space marine and Land raider. Love the vibrant pink and blue scheme and varying flesh tones and compared against the very dark and necrotic chaos marines. These look very accomplished paint jobs and Dan’s work is getting better and better each month! keep it up bud!

Next we have Dan G and smashing looking Sigmarine painted in a lovely contrasting green and ivory trim which really works well against the golden armour. Great work Dan lets see what you’ve got next month!

dang

Next up is Dom and some more golden armoured hero’s with some nice golden armour that has a rich depth to it and complimented nicely by the blue gems and red plumes, which help to break up the gold and they look great mounted on their bases!

Next we have Dunk and a rather splendid collection of 30K death Guard and some DND minis. Love the flame throwing Gecko as they have great skin tones and Dunk’s done a great job on the colour on the flames. The Death Guard are as we would expect them to be from Dunk which is to their usual high standards, with some great weathering on the land raider and a bunch of lovely terminators.  And also a fantastic looking beholder with great teeth and gums but most of all the eye ball looks awesome!!!! Great month of Hobby from the Dunkster!

Next up is Greg and some really well executed two-tone marines with nice crisp lines and edge highlights they look very neat. The red and black had been tied together nicely with the yellow trim and all in all a very cool colour scheme and great paint job! look forward to seeing more in the future.

on to the next entry with Ian and his vibrant test model for his upcoming 40K army and i love the bright contrasting blue carapace and orange flesh tones to give a truly unique scheme and will look awesome on the table top. Lovely stuff Ian we look forward to more of these gribblies being painted up.

Now onto Jonny with an awesome looking presentation tray of his WW2 force for a recent event, which really adds a fuck load of the wow factor and ties the whole army together as a collection. This really is a top drawer level of presentation and work and only adds to the stunning paint job he has produced for this entire force. Absolutely stunning bud!

Next we have Lawrence and a rather splendid collection of minis from a board game he’s been busy painting up. Its really nice to see lots of different types and styles of models on display and all of them have been finished to his usually high levels! I particularly like the Minotaur with the club as the flesh looks great! really nice stuff bud!

A las entradas del Sr. Marlow para noviembre con un hombre amarillo con un cañón de fuego rápido masivo. ¿Seguro que simplemente está sobre compensando algo? Una vez más, se hace un gran trabajo a mano alzada y los tonos de piel se ven muy bien. ¡bien hecho compañero!

Next we have Matthew as he continues with his primaris Blood Angels and once again these are looking fantastic with some nice clean edges and highlighting and i love the gore hanging off the the end of the gun to give a real filthy grim dark feel to the model and just oozes character like it oozes blood! Lovely stuff Matthew once again!

Up next we have Neil and some more of his awesome looking Tau with their distinct battle hardened grey colour scheme and complimentary blue OSL. The bases look really well done which also helps to add to the atmosphere of the models and this army is going to look stunning on the table top. He has also tried his hand at some Sigmarines and i have to say i absolutely love the worn bronze scheme which gives it so much more character, Awesome work Neil keep it up!

Next we have Paul E and a rather smashing Assassin he used in the Spaartanax Sedition. love the job of the base to give contrast against the black stealth suit of the model and helps to make it stand out. Nice work bud!

Next we have Paul D who is back to his highly productive best with a collection of Adeptus titanicus buildings, some objective markers and some orks bikers that look sublime with their duller dirty flesh tones, which i think give an oily biker feel to their overall appearance and finaly some ghouly ghosts which look great with some smooth transitions, lovely stuff Paul lovely stuff!

Up next we have Rob and a cracking selection of World Eaters, which look like they have been professionally photographed and they certainly stand out! great use of the transfers to create a great looking banner. Lots of lovely weathering and gore these look really nice and will be great additions to what is already a great looking force! Keep it up mate!

Next we have Tim and a random collection of adventuring figures, its nice to see him back involved with the hobby and painting minis again. some great flesh and fabrics done to make the models pop. lovely stuff Timmy we look forward to more from you soon!.

And last but not least we have Will with a splendid looking guildballer, which i’m loving the lead singer from Republica look to her hair and pouty features. Great work on the fabrics to give depth to the cloth and some lovely subtle NMM  work as well on the hammer and armour. This is a really nice looking piece of work. top stuff Will!

will

So there we have it a very very late and rushed showcase but despite the poor write ups the paint jobs themselves were still fantastic!!

Look out for Decembers showcase, coming hopefully very soon!! so until then i will leave you with a juicy piece of advice from Sr. Marlow.

¿Qué es peor que las hormigas en tus pantalones? Un tío

OCTOBER PAINTING SHOWCASE

logo october

Vienvenido to another monthly round up of the glorious hobby erotica that the nerds down the Spartans have been furiously mass producing for your voyeur-esk tendencies, so without much further a do here is the latest offerings. Remember you can always click on the pictures if you want a closer look at a photo and model.

So first off we Matthew Q and his first attempt at painting  models in over 19 years with a 40K Nurgley death Guard marines festering nicely. With super duper clean and tidy painting this is a fantastic effort and a resounding success on his return to the hobby. Particularly like the way he has painted up the fanged maw on the belly of the marine. we look forward to following Matthew’s painting journey as he finishes off more models over the next dew months! keep it up bud!

Next we have DJ and his long awaited return to the 40K universe with this rather splendid looking Howling Griffons Redemptor dreadnought and primaris marine. This is such an iconic and difficult scheme to master. However, Dj has absolutely nailed with such a clean and crisp finish to the models, which have some nicely painted metallics to break up the coloured panels. The other models are giant rat ogres with guns for paws and lovely bronzed flesh complimented by the yellow cloth and green wires. lovely stuff once again DJ and we look forward to the instalment!

A continuación tenemos al señor Marlow y una muestra bastante grande de la bondad de la afición. Sin duda, ha sido un pequeño castor ocupado y ha estado extendiendo sus habilidades de pintura al probar nuevas técnicas en toda la gama de modelos. ¡Las lentes en particular se han hecho realmente bien y el efecto de cuero ha sido bien ejecutado! ¡mantenga este nivel de esfuerzo en su compañero que ha avanzado a pasos agigantados en los últimos 6 meses!

Next we have Lawrence and a varied collection of beautiful looking minis, some even dating back to the 80’s. Love the nose and flesh blue hatted gnome and the green robes on pouty metal muscle man. The necromunda minis have been really painted to a high standard with a range of techniques used on the different gangs, like the colour shift paint on the Van Saar an the red flesh of the abhorrent just looks toppers!!! Awesome bud!

Next we have Neil who is another who jumps from army and project from month to month and this month he’s been working on his Tau for 40K. Some great use of OSL lighting to add interest to the grey colour scheme and i really like the fact Neil has gone in and added some weathering to the models, which often you don’t see in the 40K universe. with some great looking bases these filthy Tau looking like filthy Tau! great work as always fella!

Next we have Paul, who has surprised us all this month by only painting 1 model!! but to be fair it was a titan…. but then again its only at 8mm scale… but he has absolutely smashed it… so we’ll let him off! great use of the stripes to breakup the charcoal black and deep red of legio mortis and i really like the white head as a focal point for the model which is tied nicely to the white stripes on the shin pad. nicely planned and executed! Lovely stuff with a great pose as well!

Next we have Greg who attended an event this month and left it until the night before  In many ways much like a danger wank, Greg managed to leave it until the very last minute to paint his models. However, with only 24 hours to paint an army he has managed to pull it out the bag with a really cool scheme that is consistent across the whole force. While Greg may not feel this is hos best work due to rushing through it all, it just shows how far his painting has come on if he managed to paint to this standard in those conditions!!  well played sir!

Up next we have another wanker this time its Si and his 2 squads of heresy era Alpha Legion and a Guild Ball model he painted up for Dan. Si decided to kit-bash some of the Forge World’s Emperors children palatine blades models and added random alpha legion bits to them to use the dynamic poses as a 30K Legion weapon master vet squad with some cool purple swords to create a unique looking  unit.

Next we have Dan G and a variety of models lots of which will be used as part of his role playing adventures as models for characters in DnD using some guild ball models as the base, which actually suit quite nicely. Dan has also made foray into AOS with some spooky spectres and the green to white blends look good to create the ghostly effect. well done mate keep it up!

Next we have Jimmy and some splendid looking sons of Baal that he’s been working on as a commission for a mate. As with all of Jim’s work its super crisp and clean with perfect edge highlights. Whats really cool is the gold armour of the sanguinor and also his blue wings edged in white and the eye lenses are so neat throughout. it looks so regal and angelic you have no problem believing he’s a son of Sanguinius. As always mate these are cracking!

Next we have pox ridden Lewis and his Nurgley friends. It seems that Deah guard are a very popular choice at the moment and i can see why, with such cool models to try painting up in different styles. it means you can try different techniques across one model. Lovely looking necrotic flesh and buboes painted throughout the army and these have come out super well. I bet these look awesome on the table next to the rest of your death guard! we look forward to more next month!

Next we have a single pic from Ben of a crazed bearded gentleman riding what appears to be a giant eagle type bird. The flesh and especially the robes look really good and although there’s lots of browns on the model it looks like real fabric. Good job on the eyes, which as we all know can be particularly difficult to get accurately done but he has managed with gusto. hopefully we can see the full thing next time?!

ben

Up next w have Jay and his entry into Guidfords armies on parade with his smashing looking lizardmen display and board. love the effort that has gone into making the board and for me is still one of the best hobby competitions GW engages in. He managed to pick up a silver for his efforts and all i can say is the winner must have been outstanding because Jay this looks awesome. we can see from the pic below that the bright colours and the scales have been done particularly well across the the whole army! great work buddy!

jay

Next we have Tom with a picture of his tiny grots…. love the juxtaposition of the tribal warpaint against the necromnda bases. I personally love these models and the skin has been really nicely done especially making the warpaint look like warpaint rather than blue flesh, well done sir, well done!

tom

Up next we have Jonny and some rather dashing WW2  bolt action Hungarians looking all splendid in their uniforms as they run across the battle field punching each other in the arm shouting “Yellow tank!” with some great painting on fabric and flesh the models are looking sweeeeeet!!! its nice to see a variety of models in this months show case! lovely stuff!!

Next we have Dan King with a lovely collage of  Orktober goodness!! With some great chequering across the armour in red and cream offers a sharp contrast against the green skin along with the lenses which is nicely offset with the blue marine helmet. This is a great effort from Dan and some of his nicest stuff to date! well done lad we look forward to more entries in the not too distant future!!

and last but not least we have Dom and a rather regal looking Blood Angel, who has been nicely kitbashed and painted with a lovely gold trim and offset with the white face, shoulder and cape to help balance between the red and the gold to make a cool pose and great looking sword. nice work bud!

so there we have it another fine example of hobby throbby from all involved so until next time i shall leave you with the immortal words of Snr Marlow…

¿Cómo hace Moisés su té? ¡Lo hebreo esa!

SEPTEMBER PAINTING SHOWCASE

logo sept

Welcome to another monthly round up of hobby goodness from all the geeks and gals in at the home of the Spartans. Its another bumper month with nice variety of game systems and models on offer. Remember you can always click on the pictures for a closer look so lets get straight into it…

first up we have Dan King and his rather smashing looking selection of WW2  army fellows looking suitably brilliant in their camouflage and khakis. The bases also give a nice sense of realism as they hunker down in the mud of the battlefield. However, the pièce de résistance is the rather glorious weathered and realistic looking tank. Great work to dirty it up and make looking awesome!
