Next we have Dunkers with an ungodly amount of high quality painted miniatures for his Malifaux bands.

logo july

Welcome to another late monthly showcase of all the hobby the guys and girls down the Spartans have been working on in the month of July. The nerds have produced a fine collection of mini’s for your perusal, as usual you can click on each picture for a closer look.

First up we have Lawrence and an amazing entry into everchosen and a collection of D&D models. firstly lets just admire the glory that is the demon model… pure loveliness!! love the pastel colour pallet used to create a distinctly beautiful paint scheme. and that cloak!!! and the range of D&D models all of which look fantastic. just take a gander and enjoy! lovely stuff mate!

Next we have Paul who is back up to his high quantity/quality output and produced a range of tiles for his titanicus and some super sweet models for his warcry band with some ghostly plant people nice, nice blending from the weeds to the spiritual appenditures! and love the fact he’s managed to paint in a downed imperial fist xiphon just to wind Joel up! awesome stuff as always!

A continuación tenemos al Sr. Marlow y un millón y un guardia imperial. Se está poniendo cada vez mejor cada mes y ha estado noqueando a mano alzada como si no hubiera mañana. Gran uso de una gama de modelos para crear diferentes unidades y lentes encantadores y espadas de poder. muy buen trabajo compañero!

Next we have Matt and some very nice objective markers for his Talons force made up from random custodes bits, lovely use of random primarch bases to mount them on!! but the cream is the titanicus legio he has been working on for some time, which are stunning and the awesome looking bases with water effects, which truly create a fantastic setting for these models and makes them truly unique. fantastic work as always!!!!

Next we have Barry, who has actually finished a model for the first time what seems like an eternity!!  he has been playing around with contrast paints for a quick paint job to make a very nice officer.it just goes to show that contrast paints can be used effectively and quickly to create a great finish! lets hope he starts knocking up some more models for next month!.

Next we have Bill who has been working on some dark elves and has gone for a rather striking red and black scheme which you dont see much of… great looking skin tones to give the dark elf their usual pallor and the red and black looks really nice! top work buddy!

bill.jpg

Next we have Si who managed to finally finish up a 10 man flamer squad for his solar aux in a nice sea green armour which you dont see very often and a dark angels rhino with some nice weathering. Si is hoping to get some more solar aux done soon but has been put off by just hos fiddly they are!

Next we have slam Dunk and another million models he has managed to knock up in july! this time its some Malifaux models and has painted some lovely gun slingers where the denim looks so good along with the flowing cloaks, great blending throughout! and some great metallic constructs where he has used a range to create a TMM style effect across the unit. And also a very tricky fire elemental thingy-ma-bob but my fave is the lovely rich skin tones of the black gentlemen with hammers as it can be very difficult to pull off, all in all a very well executed bunch of models here buddy!

On to the next bunch and its Rob with some more malifaux models which look really nicely done. however, my fave is the flamenco clown dancer, the dress and shawl look great whislt the clown face paint looks awesome! Rob is another one who seems to be improving month on month! lovely to see the development, keep it up bud!

Next we have Greg and some inquisition models which are looking great!. love the blue grey on the inquisitor and they have all been painted to a very nice and clean and crisp finish. these are some of my favourite GW models and has certainly done them justice. great back drop to the models in front of the tv monitors. great work buddy!

Next we have Mark who has been showcasing a range of his models from his collection, all of which are stunning but i particularly love the nurgle greens as they have been well blended and using a brighter pallet that you usually see, which really make them pop! also the IF dreadnought and armiger are so crisp and painted to a high standard. lovely looking collection! i know hes been busy in august so we have lots to look forward to next month as well! super first entry from Mark!

Next we have Lewis and bloated blight drone painted in a lovely creamy colour which once again is a lovely change of pace from the usual colour scheme. the lens has been painted so well it looks super realistic along with the slimey base that has become a trademark of his army! very very nice work bud!

lewis

On to Scouse Greg, who managed to knock out a whole army ready for an event with some demons which are looking awesome… this may be the first time greg has managed to finish an army!!!! and i love the offset against the snowy bases to maximise the contrast against the demons. i also like that he’s gone for a grey skin tone as something a bit different for his nurgle demons. lovely stuff keep it up!

Next we have long time lurker Tom who has also made a start on his adeptus titanucus and knocked up a great looking first model in the shape of a warlord titan. great looking red offset against the off white shoulders with some nice stripes to break up the armour panels, we cant wait for some more to be painted up!

tom

and last but not least we have Dan G with some more malifaux and another painter who seems to be improving month on month. love the horse and the bases he’s used axross the models and dark robes have been well done to give depth to the fabric. really nice Dan we look forward to more next month!

JUNE PAINTING SHOWCASE

logo june

Welcome to another late monthly showcase of all the hobby the guys and girls down the Spartans have been working on in the month of June. There is a bumper month of hobby activity, where the nerds have obviously been dodging the sunshine in favour of keeping their pale and pasty complexions in tact! Needless to say they have produced a fine collection of mini’s for your perusal, as usual you can click on each picture for a closer look.

So first up we have Jonny, who has been celebrating 50 years since the Apollo launch with this excellent looking NASA space man. the effect behind makes the model look like an actual photograph taken from space. Great detail on the helmet and suite to create a realistic effect. I absolutely love this!! well played Jonny, well played!

 

Up next we have Matt Q with some more nurgley goodness! love how well the fabric has been painted and he has done a great job on blending the flame effect on the banner. All round this is a sublime looking model with lots of effects nicely dome like the blood axe and skulls. very nice work Matthew defo some of your best work to date! well done bud!

 

Next we have Steve with a lovely band of Hi-Tech looking dudes painted really nicely with some simple NMM silvers and subtle use of spot highlights to give the metallic effect of the red armour. He has also made good use of contrasting colours into the shadows to help add a real subtle depth to the red without killing the saturation. All in all very technical paint job well executed! awesome stuff mate!

 

Next we have Jimmy with a lovely looking Salamanders librarian and once again he doesn’t disappoint. The green is to its usual vibrant high standard and the robes have been very well done (as per) but he has offset the greens and red with vibrant blue of the staff and crowned by the totem on the backpack to create a very clear halo of focus to the model. lovely stuff Jim!

 

A continuación tenemos al señor Marlow, que ha estado trabajando incansablemente en su ejército de la Guardia Imperial. Él ha hecho algunos francotiradores Ratling que están buscando dulce. Las lentes tienen un aspecto increíble y tienen un brillo realista y los tonos de piel se ven muy bien. Bien hecho señor bien hecho!

 

Next we have Lawrence and a bumper collection of minis, there is sooo much awesomeness here its difficult to pick out the highlights cos they all look so good and i have no idea what some of the models are!!. Despite his recent difficulties with his eyesight he is still smashing ti out the park with high quality and high quantity of models! I do like the buxom waitresses and the spiders are cool!!! well done mate glad to see you’ve still got it!

 

Next we have Rob who has been experimenting with contrast paints to quickly knock up some demons. These are looking great against the lava bases and its clear to see that contrast paints are here to make batch painting easier and look great on the table top. Nice work my man!!

rob

On to the next with Dunk and lovely lady in a purple dress. I don’t think these pictures do this justice as the dress has been well done with good use of blue into the shadows to create subtle contrast to the warmer purple and red hair. The black boots have been nicely shaded to show a consistent highlight along the leather and the OSL is nice too! great work Dunkers as per!

 

Next we have Scouse Greg and a million models he painted this month again using contrast paints to quickly get through a large demon army and the results speak for themselves! lots of detail picked out with not too much effort to create a great looking army in a fraction of the time it took before! Great work mate love the skin tone choice as something a bit different to the usual demons you see!

 

And now the other Greg with some rather dashing looking grey knights with some lovely clean edges and nice finish to the models and some nice blending on the halberds and swords! Once again i don’t think the pictures do the models justice as they are looking so good! lovely stuff Greg!

 

next up we have Kieran with a lady and her bug and i really like the choice of colour for the beetle as it helps to give a distinct contrast between it and the rider. It eh dark and light element also helps add character to the model and almost creates a scene rather than a single model. lovely stuff!

 

Next is Giles and some superb looking Sons of Horus, which he was recently commended for at the recent Geno52 centurion event. Lovely looking green and great use of the old Chaos backpacks to create different feel to some of the models across the unit. Also like the bases as they give a nice contrast along with the gold trim done in  nice TMM style. These are looking very nice and getting better all the time!

giles

Next is Lewis who has been nurgling this up again with some awesome looking models! The the highlights and subtle bronzes really add to the character of these models and have been offset nicely with the blue of the insect parts to create a really cool looking effect. I really like what you’ve done here buddy! cant wait to see some more!

 

On to the next batch with Paul’s stormcasts, which are looking absolutely spendiferous. Lovely looking gold offset by the blue and white of the robes and shoulder pads and great looking bases as well. However, its the bronzen dwarves that i really like as the subtle changes in hue ties the models together yet has been done so there is the distinction between armour panels etc. and once again some awesome looking bases to mount them on! lovely stuff bud!

 

Next is Neil who has also been experimenting with contrast paint with some Space Wolves primaris marines which have come out really nicely. i love the choice of grey harking back to the heresy era rather than the blue grey of modern 40K wolves. Good choice of bases to give maximum contrast against and make them stand out. nice work Neil!!

 

And last but in no means least we have Will who’s been smashing out more guild ballers this time in the style of the Harlem globe trotters. Absolutely love the flesh tones used here, which can be very tricky to pull off. once again he has experimented with NMM on the armour to add depth  to the models… and finally that blue!! its such a nice rich colour and a fine choice to contrast against the ivory undershirt! very well done indeed!!

will

So there we have it for the Month of June… keep your eyes peeled for July’s showcase which shouldn’t be too far behind this one. We hope that this has inspired you to pick up a brush and paint something… so i will leave you with the inspired words of the rolling stones and señor Marlow!

Veo una puerta roja y la quiero pintada de negro. Ya no hay colores quiero que se vuelvan negrosVeo pasar a las chicas vestidas con sus ropas de verano. Tengo que volver la cabeza hasta que mi oscuridad se vaya. Veo una línea de autos y todos están pintados de negro. Con flores y mi amor, nunca volveré. Veo que la gente gira la cabeza y rápidamente mira hacia otro lado. Como un bebé recién nacido, simplemente pasa cada día.Miro dentro de mí y veo que mi corazón es negro. Veo mi puerta roja, debo pintarla de negro. Tal vez entonces me desvaneceré y no tendré que enfrentar los hechos. No es fácil de arreglar, cuando todo tu mundo es negro. Mi mar verde no volverá más a un azul más profundo No pude prever que esto te suceda. Si miro lo suficientemente fuerte al sol ponienteMi amor se reirá conmigo antes de que llegue la mañana. Veo una puerta roja y la quiero pintada de negro. Ya no hay colores quiero que se vuelvan negros Veo pasar a las chicas vestidas con sus ropas de verano. Tengo que volver la cabeza hasta que mi oscuridad se vaya.

First up we have Dunk with a mega collection of entries from papa nurgle. The skin  looks fantastic and seriously necrotic with some nice blends from the greens and pinks on the tentacles and around the wounds. Along with a very nice and crisp Abaddon on a great looking base. And to top it all off he’s started on some Malifaux with a sexy samurai senorita looking lovely in red! Seriously high quantity and and high quality!! well dont Dunkers you are defo completing with Paul for that Mass production title now!

Next we have Matt and a rather odd looking chap that s cross between deadpool and the lass above for the new game all the cool kids are playing down the club, which means I have no idea what the game is called but i think you will all agree its looking rather dashing and the leather straps have been very well done, all in all top work Matthew!

Next we have Luke with a weird collection of minis, which i have no idea where or what system they are from but they look really cool and i love the uniform muted brown and earthy colour palette.  They almost have a motion animation feel to the models in the realms of Nick Park. Lovely stuff Luke they have loads of character, well done!. 

Up next we have Si who has made a start on his 30K Solar Auxilia allied detachment, which his take on the 142nd C’Thonian Headhunters loyal to the Warmaster Horus. Since Forge World have discontinued the transfers he decided he would try to free hand all the symbols… needless to say he’s sick of the sight of skulls!

Next we have Paul with a very lowly model count for his usual output but it looks absolutely stunning! Such a lovely brass effect that even with such  a close up of the model it still looks clean and crisp! Fantastic work Mate!

On to the next lot which is Neil and some marvellous ghouls and ghosties. First off the colour scheme is absolutely sublime and i just love how the deep rich blood red contrasts against the ghostly green and they take a lovely picture against the black back drop. I especially love the horse mounted chap and the bases look fantastic! Neil has also continued with his stormcasts which once again look very splendid! a very top month of work here Neil lad, well played!

On to the next lot with Joel and his Heresy era Imperial Fists heavy support with a dirty 10 man Volkite Culverin squad, which are absolutely brutal in game and will look absolutely stunning while they are removing your models! Lovely yellow offset with the MkIII face plates of a different colour it really gives the unit character and uniqueness and look great! Lovely stuff mate!

and last but not least we have Greg with a might fine recommissioned Imperial knight looking all knightly! A lovely clean paint job with some fantastic looking lenses and good use of transfers to create the image of a battle hardened veteran! Lovely stuff Greggles!

Next we have Max with a strong debut to the showcase with his World Eater Khan model mincing his way through his enemies along the crimson path and has the blood stains to prove it! Really nice blue on the shoulder pads to contrast the white and the blood effects. We look forward to more seeing more entries!

Next we have Neil and a cracking looking ghostly gang of AOS models. Really love the green spectral effect he’s created with the green through to white with such smooth blends.

Finally we have Steve with a lovely dark elf witch that really jumps out at you not only with the pose but also the pastel pale flesh tones that have been very well blended to maximise the highlights and the shadows.

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!
