Welcome to another monthly round up of all the hobby goodness that has been created by all the Spartans and once again we have another month of excellent looking entries. so without further ado, lets get cracking and remember you can always click on the pictures for a closer look.
First up we have Rob who has been super busy with more of his awesome looking Minotaurs. Such a lovely and warm colour scheme that looks so classy and very well executed with some very clean panels and edge highlights and i like that fact he’s spent a a bit of time adding tufts to the bases in the same colour pallet to tie it all together. Especially love the chaplain! great work buddy!
Up next we have Kieran who has been very lazy this month and only painted one model but i think you would agree that he has actually done rather well with this evil eldar looking chap. Love the range of vibrant colours that draw attention to different parts of the miniature and really helps to show off the great paint job and the model itself. and top it off the lava base is smashing!! nice work dude!
Next we have new member Aaron with his first entries for the showcase with some truly awesome looking death guard and primaris ultra marines. Love the detail on the death guard, you can tell its been painstakingly painted as the details are so crisp and the liquid in the window of the tank looks stunning. The primaris are so clean and well executed they wouldn’t look out of place in white dwarf! lovely stuff Aaron we hope to see more from you soon!
Next we have Luke, who once again has abandoned his Game of thrones Minis for some Bushido models and varying types of of oriental styled loveliness. these look very cool and i love how vibrant he has made the models with the flowers on the bases and bright clothes and love the freehand flower print on the komodo. such a seriously good paint job and i looove the blue dragon he looks just like the one on the soy sauce packets in the shops!
Next we have Matt who has been super busy this month painting up some more of his super duper primaris white scars and i love the cool little conversions he’s made to give them a little touch of individuality and a nod to the chapters back story. Matt’s also been seduced by Bushido and has knocked up some very cool looking models especially like how well the geisha girls powdered skin has come out. Such a very well painted bout of hobby bud!
Next we have Neil with some absolutely blinding looking models, the flesh tones used on the mutated brutes are really well balanced colour pallet to show depth and interest and helps with the variation across the models. The blends between the flesh tones are flawless and is defo some of the best that Neil has ever done. The gobbo and squig models are also fantastic and love the bases as well… i could gush about these all day! love em!
Next we have Chris who has continued his tradition of strong entries into the monthly showcase with some more Necron’s and what a stunning entry it is as well love the blends from the yellow to green and on the power blade and i also really like the metallic bronze and silver as its a nice contrast. The assassin has also been completed with a very crisp and clean paint job, Chris really has been nailing he touches with a brush! great work bud!
Next we have Dunk with more of his fab looking Necron’s with his cream and blue scheme and very clean finish, which is offset by the tarnished bronze and silvers… it difficult to give any new superlatives when you keep seeing the same high levels of skill Dunk puts forward each month, so lets just sit back and enjoy the pictures! so so good!
Next we have Next we have the other Chris with some excellent looking models that look straight off the cover of a white dwarf he has nailed the GW painting style. Great looking flesh tones on the face and the edge highlights are on point for the chaplain. However, i love the golden Necron the armour panels have been very well done and the blue power sword contrast so well against it. very good looking models indeed, we look forward to more of these!
Next up we have Dan G who continues to improve month on month with some really cool test models he’s been working on this time a chaos marine with nice clean black and gold and also a Necromunda goliath with some great flesh tones and a very cool rusty effect base and worn armour, great stuff bud!
Next we have Edd with some more of his sublime custom chapter marines, love the old school dreadnought and the weathering effects he’s done but once again the level of care and detail he’s managed to get the quartered marines done so well, which is such a difficult thing to do and the highlights are spot on. Seriously lovely looking army this dude!
Next we have Jamie who has made a start on some custodes with a couple of test models, which have come out really nicely and you know i’m a fan of the tarnished gold effect to give them a bit more of a grim dark feel. nice use of the bases to add more interest and break up the gold. we cant wait to see a whole elite army of these boys!!
Next we have Dyson who has been slowly chipping away at his titanicus and finished his warlord titan with some sexy looking lightning effects across the amour panels and offset by the black and white checkers creates a great contrast to the model and the use of red as an accent colour gives max contrast from the black and white and compliments the blue delightfully. This is very well done my friend!!!
Next we have Joao with something very different from the sci-fi focused entries with some very cool looking historic mounted infantry. The bases look great and the uniformity of the uniform across all 5 mounts has been well done and the horses hair which can be tricky look spot on. Its really nice to see some historic mini in the showcase and he really has done them justice. top work bud!
Next we have Paul E who has knocked up a very very cool looking cerastus knight lancer in a house hawkshroud scheme with a nice looking yellow which we all know can be very tricky to pull off. Looks a lovely crisp paint job and the simplicity of the scheme really helps it to stand out and will look great on the tabletop! very nice work dude!
Next we have John with a super sexy looking eldar dude, this is a very accomplished paint job and the amour panels are so neat and tidy and complimented well by the blue fabric winged helmet. However, what really sets this mini apart is the use of the basing materials to create a dynamic pose astride the 2 stones and added additional contrast through the flowers ans tufts. love this a lot!!
Up next we have Pete who has continued working on his Heresy Blood Angels with some filth on the form of a infernus pistol moritat in a cool black armour with a nice blend on the power axe and looking suitably menacing! he’s also finished up some more BA troops which look great and again the blue power swords help to really make them pop amongst the legions red and black armour. speaking of which Pete’s done a great job of creating contrast across the minis and some nice weathering and even a few conversions in there as well!! Cant wait to play these sometime!!! great work buddy!
next we have Rob W who is new to the group and casually drops this gorgeous work of art for us to enjoy!! everything about this is sheer beauty, the cobbled road with overgrown grass, the autumnal tree to add a warmth to the scene and then the brickwork and realism is just on point… just take a closer look at the pics and marvel in its greatness! we defo wanna see more of this dude!!
Next we have Joe who has been making a start on some Orks with this little cracker! The flesh looks nice and the use of a vibrant blue thats been well edge highlighted adds a nice contrast to the flesh, bones and base. I like the blending on the bones and the use of red to add character to the bone clubs and a tribal feel to the weapon. overall a very cool looking mini! nice work bud!
Next we have Mark who has painted up a fantastic looking wizard for some D&D love the use of the traditional purple for the cloak and robes and with some subtle highlighting the robes look nicely done. also nice work on the flesh tones and beard, a lovely looking model and definitely captures the essence of all things wizardly!
Next we have Oliver who has created his own unique take on the classic Necronm trope with a very cool looking metallic blue with vibrant green accent colours to contrast against the silvers. I must admit i do like this scheme as its taken elements of the traditional colour schemes and given it a twist that i’ve not seen replicated elsewhere. great work dude!
and last but definitely not least we have Tony who is another who has thrown himself into some Bushido with some very well painted minis with clearly lots of detail has been picked out very carefully and the flesh tones are very smooth even when looking close up. Love the dude below as he has a feel of scorpion from mortal combat and the outfit looks great, very clean paint job with some nicely placed subtle highlights. lovely stuff bud!
so there we have it for another month, some awesome looking minis as always and its inspired me to not be lazy and do some painting in september i hope you call follow suit! so until next time, hasta luego!
