Welcome to another monthly round up of all the lovely and glorious hobby the nerds at the Spartans have been working on through October. Once again we have some super lovely examples to show off, remember you can always click on each picture for a closer look. So without further ado lets get on with the show…case!
First up we have Senior Marlow who has been working more on his retro looking Eldar and once again we can see some really smart freehand and neat edging and his blending on the sword looks great to add pop of contrast colour that works well with the goblin green bases. Very well done Marlow!
Next we have Neil with another strong showing with more of his new moody looking photo style, which does magnify the effect of these super cool looking Necrons in the autumnal scheme that is all complimentary and works so well with the cream, orange and browns. also a little wolf chaplain with a great looking lupine helmet! great work buddy!
Next we have Si with some heresy era Raven Guard he completed for Paul’s army. A 10 man destroyer squad and a mordeythan squad with magnetised weapon options and a couple of characters, nice blue on the plasma to add some contrast against the black.
up next we have Rob who has been working on a bikey chaplain with some nice subtle dust effects and weathering and he has also been adding to his Hobbit stuff and more bronzen minotaurs. a very solid month once again and the quality keeps getting better each month! great effort once again bud!
Next we have Dan King and a seriously lovely terrain piece which i assume is for WW2 related gaming. i love the little details of the weathering across this piece like door frames and brick work and the roof tiles… this is excellent i love it!!! awesome work fella its so realistic!!
Up next we have Phil who has been paining up some infantry and they look super cool and love the framing with the terrain in the background to help set the scene! Great work on the clothing and metals and looks the start of a very cool looking army!! we hope to see these expanded upon each month! very cool mate!
Next we have the enigmatic Dunkers with more of his delicious Necrons in the cream, blue and silver in a very clean paint job that is super neat and tidy. Great use of the graphite grey basing for contrast in a muted fashion to ensure the focus is all on the models above. very cool monolith and i like the fact he’s gone for less cream to mix it up. awesome work as always!
Up next we have Alex with a sensational looking Mortarian and i love the colour choice on the wings, which is something you don’t often see but it certainly adds interest and also contrasts against the cream and green so well. A suitable well painted model deserving of a primarch! love it dude!
Next we have Joel with more of his beloved 7th Legion with more dirty looking Imperial fists, this time some heavy weapons units to deal max damage! Once again that lovely dirty yellow that he managed to get so consistently across all of his models works well with the martian red bases. you i know the aesthetic of this army!
Next we have joshua with some very cool looking ogres and red goblins! some awesome work on the various flesh tones across each model as he has created definition and some nice blends, which can be tricky on the larger flesh areas and also nicely done with e red flesh tones! also nice blends on the blue swords makes these look a very accomplished paint job all round!
next we have Lewis who has been working on some very sweet looking Necrons, i especially like the really different choice of colour pallet with a mix of reds and orange to the blue/green heads really creates lots of interest and a big move away from the traditional silver looking’Crons. nice work buddy!
Next we have Matt who has been working super hard on more Bushido bits and pieces, including a very cool shack, carts and blossom trees. Nice blending on the fire animal things and the leather work on the sword dude is awesome. a nice and different entry for Matt this month with those terrain pieces! great stuff bud!
Now we have Luke who has been working on some very cool looking knightly dudes! love the red leather on the tunics and the shields and the metallics are very nicely done with subtle dull weathering and shine to create interest and some nice highlights on the horses tunic as well. very nice bud!
Next we have Matthew with a very cool Tau death squad, nice traditional colour scheme and clean crisp edge highlights and lenses and i like the use of snow on the bases for interest to create a very accomplished paint job and maybe more Tau is on the cards in the future… we hope so!
Next we have Marcosand some roman looking Skaven, which have some nice silver armour and cool looking leather work on the little rat bastards! some nice subtle work on the flesh tones on the hands and faces as well and these have come out looking super duper! nice work mate, we look forward to more!
Up next we have Tony and a fine collection of Bushido models that he’s been working on for the last few months. Love the straw hats and clothes and robes, which have some nice blending and highlights but what makes these models stand out is the really nice use of foliage in the autumnal colours to add interest to the muted colour pallet. great work bud!
Next we have Russel who is new to the group but has made strong start to showcase life with a very nicely painted chaplain in a nice rich black. great work on the bone colours and the gold works well as an accent to complete the scheme, great work fella we look forward to more!
And last but not least we have Edd with some sublime Blood Angels that he has been basing on Rogue trader era models and has included a lovely retro picture for comparison. Some nice freehand and flat colours really do make you feel like its something from your childhood! a very well executed paint job and we wouldn’t expect anything less from Edd, glorious once again amigo!
So there we have it for another month we hope its inspired you to pick up the brush during Lockdown 2.0: “Lockdown harder!” so until next time enjoy the pictures and stay safe!
