Hello and welcome to November’s painting showcase, where we have a superb selection of hobby related awesomeness as painted by the nerds at the Spartans. There are lots and lots of really well painted mini’s for you to enjoy and remember you can always click on the pictures for a closer look. So without further ado lets get cracking…
Up next we have Joel who has painted up some heresy era imperial fists in the alternative colour scheme. great use of the greys and silvers to contrast against the traditional yellow and red bases, they also have a very clean and crisp finish to them! awesome work dude!
A continuación tenemos al Sr. Marlow con su continuación de sus fuerzas aliadas Imperial y Crimson Fists. Hermoso trabajo en la mano libre una vez más y el acabado limpio en toda la gama de modelos. cosas excelentes una vez más amigo!
Next up we have Jimmy and his kitbashed Nomus Rhy’Tan for his heresy era Salamanders army. Lovely smooth black armour and super clean edge highlights that look like they’ve been applied with a ruler! whats great about this is the composition of the different colours to break up the black and and tarnished gold with a vibrant cloak that make it snap, crackle and pop! so good!
Next we have Mark and a fantastic looking collection of bonereapers including scenery with a great sandstone finish. Good use of violet against the ivory bones to compliment one another and offset with the turquoise, which creates a great contrast. lovely colour palettte! Also love the muscled, flesh effects on the eagle and skulls. really top work!
Next we have Marcos and some awesome looking Gloomhaven minis he’s been working on, which totally makes me want to play this even more! great flesh tones and armour plates really help to give them a sinister feel to the group. great stuff buddy!
Up next we have Pete and some of his heresy era Blood Angels that he’s been beavering away on to get finished in time for the Spaartanax event at the weekend. He ran a filthy cheesy armoured break through list and had good fun ruining everyone else’s day, but i don’t think they minded too much due to the fact his BA look so pretty. Here’s a lovely Mk2b land raider looking very sexy with good subtle highlights on the red across the top and nice smooth black it looks really nice and matches the res of the army so well. And a good healthy dose of chipping and weathering has given it that realistic look. very nice Pete indeed and looked awesome in the flesh!
Next we have Dan G with a fearsome looking angry man with his bone accoutrements. nice work on the flesh and bones to give depth to the model. and a cracking base to finish him off! nice work Dan.
Next we have Giles and some simply bloody marvellous looking heresy era Sons of Horus speeders. you cant see it in the pictures too well but the colour contrast within the green is great with a use of purple in the shadows to give a muted contrast to the lovely sea green. Giles picked up a painting award at the weekends Spaartanax event and deservedly so. this army looks sick as the kids would say!
and last but not least we have Rob with his first ever loyalist model as he was forced to switch sides due to an in balance in factions at the Spaartanax event and played his world eaters as a blackshields force. Love the pose as he casually executes a traitor dripping in gore. He also managed to knock up the start of his Necromunda gang, surprise surprise its a chaos close combat army!! but they look super sweet! nice work on the robes bud.
so there we have it for another month and hope that it inspires you to pick up a brush in december for the next showcase. so until then i’ll leave you with the wise words of Sr. Marlow who said he’s been conducting a social experiment for us all. All he told me was… Pedí una gallina y un huevo de Amazon. Yo lo haré saber
