Well here it is… a couple of weeks late but i’m sure you will agree once you have seen this months entries that it has been worth the wait! Once again we have lots to show off from all the boys and girls down the club. Remember you can always click on the pictures for a closer look so lets get straight into it.
First up we have Rob and some loverly looking World Eaters which he’s been working on ready for the Spaartanax Sedition 30K event being held at the Spartans in June. Really like the posing of the models as well as the blood spatter effects on the models. These are going to look super menacing on the table top as he collects skulls for Angron! Great work Rob keep it up!
Next we Pete and fantastic looking Blood Angels Las Destroyer, which has some superb looking transitions between the red and the shadows and highlights it really makes it look showcase quality. Love the OSL effect on the pipes and there is just the right amount of weathering across the model to keep the 30K aesthetic and look battle worn. Soe of your best work to date mate!! look forward to the next models.
Next we have Si and and some Raven Guard Rhino’s/razorbacks he has been working on for Paul’s 30K army for the Spaartanax Sedition. Black is such a tricky colour get any contrast on across the model so the use of dirt and weathering helps to brake up the tank and some nice heat blooms on the gun muzzle helps to give it a battle worn look.
Up next we have Sam who has been working on his skull adorned vehicles for his Death Watch army that is steadily growing.Again the use of weathering has helped to break up the black as well as the serious amounts of skulls of which we have come to demand and expect from Sam! Sam has also included and filthy looking group of infantry with some OSL and freehand, Sam is really stepping up his game!.
On to the next entry which is Paul, who once again has been as busy as a beaver on speed in logging seasons…. and finished some lovely looking Word Bearers (with all the magnets) and a truly fantastic looking Necron Lord as well as a Spartan and a cople of inquisitors! all in a days work for servitor Paul!!! Not only that but they all look freakin’ amazing!! Really love the word bearers as they are very crisp but the best of the bunch i feel is the necron lord giving a Churchill-esq V for victory sign! great work once again mate
Next we have Matt I and some more of his slowly but steadily growing army of cults and genestealers! Unfortunately, the pics don’t do the models justice but there is some good use of highlights to really make the carapace stand out with the blue form the purple flesh tones. top work mate looking forward to the next batch!
Next we have scouse Greg and some excellent looking Crimson Fists in his slowly expanding army. Once again the bases look really nice and bring a contrast to the futuristic marines. The paint job is crisp and has been well done all over on each of the models. This is turning into a great looking force… dare we say he might actually finish a 40K army?!
este mes el Sr. Marlow ha estado zumbando como una abeja a toda velocidad y noqueando a más personajes del Señor de los anillos que un Orco negro de Tolkien. Se ha hecho un gran trabajo en las túnicas y la ropa y los tonos de carne del Sr. Marlow han avanzado a pasos agigantados. Me gusta especialmente el atuendo de enanos y el trabajo con metales. Ahora relájate y toma un respiro y quizás comiences a trabajar en tu banda de Necromunda.
next we have Dunk and some really nice looking Necrons, i realy like the scheme he has used which is a bit different and nicely breaks up the bright metallics with the sea green turquoise pastel colour, which contrasts really really well against the copper trim and accent colours. I think these look exceptional, nice work Dunker!!
On to the next which is Dan G who has slowly been working his way through some Guild ball characters and trying to paint his way out of a mini slump. These look really nice and a good use of the drab colours to give a realistic feel to the character of each of the models, which is contrasted by the bright green of the turf beneath them, god stuff Dan keep it up!
Next we have Will and a first time entrant with his excellent looking guild ballers. I really like the shadows and highlights on the blue dress as it really gives a good depth to the model and compliments the flesh tones which have also been done to a high standard. This is particularly true of the darker skin tones of the second model which can be tricky to do when building enough highlight and interest on a model. This has also got some sweeeet looking NMM on the armour and lets face it these are looking absolutely top drawer… we look forward to the next instalment Will!!!
Next we have Joel and some lovely looking Imperial Fist Breachers, which he has been slaving away over for some time now for his expanding 30K army (another one ready to fight in the Spaartanax Sedition). what i really like about these is the simple but effective use of the black as an accent colour to break up the yellow and create interest on each model. These are looking bad ass and i can wait to see the full army deployed on the table soon! We also hope that Joel enjoyed his recent stag do to Wahammer world.
Next its the lovely Neil and his lovely Necron models, this time its some croissants and a monolith followed by all the C’Tan’s some bug swarms and wraiths… wow not a bad little haul for a months work, and all obviously painted to an extremely high standard. Good use of OSL and crisp edge highlights make these look super professionally done. top work again my lumberjack friend!
Up next we have Darth Nick and some excellent looking rebel scum, we particularly like the camo painted on to each of their forest world smocks and the flesh tones are really nicely done as well. I love the mini sentinel dude just chilling and the fabric on the back packs looks really real! i honestly love these Nick well done!!
Onto the next entry which is Kevin and some nurgley goodness and what i think looks really great on these is the extensive use of colours across the models. Kevin hasnt been shy in breaking away from the usual drab colours to infuse them with life and colourful character. They have also been done to a very good standard and we salute you Kev!! great work and we hope you don’t leave it so long before your next entry!
Next we have Dan King, who after attending the painting course with Matt Kane has levelled up his airbrush game and really gone to town and applied his new skills to create this fantastic looking Ork blitzer bomber. I love the transitions between the black camo to the red and orange on the main model colour. I love this!!! well done Dan, lets hope he has something else finished for May!
Up next we have Greg R and some nice looking Primaris marines in the Dark Angel livery and really nice looking rhino with emblem across the roof, which looks very neat and tidy and the Iron Hand banner bearer is absolutely superb!!! The edge highlights and banner are simply stunning… love, love, love him!! well done mate!
Next we have Lewis and quite a handful of poxy looking plague bearers, which are looking suitably nurgley and grim. The cloth and robes have been nicely done as well as the blending on the flesh to give the flesh its rotten appearance, along with the simple but clever scenic base really ties the unit together and makes them look really fantastic. i especially like the chap in the yellow boiler suit and white doctors jacket. top work mate!
and last and by no means least we have Jimmy with his Salamander quad mortar, which he deservedly won a bronze golden demon with at warhammerfest at the weekend!! well done Jim. just feast your eyes on these babies!! Jimmy wasn’t going to enter these but i bet he’s pretty glad he did now!!! These are really crisp and uniform and tied nicely together on the bases. not enough superlatives to describe them… well done mate!!
so that is it for another month (albeit late) of showcase entries and my word the standard jumps up every time!!!
well done to everyone who has kept their hobby juices flowing and for those of you caught in a painting slump hopefully this will help to inspiire you to pick up the brushes again.
so until next time i will leave you with the immortal words of Señor Marlow “si alguna vez te quedas atrapado en un ascensor con un gorila y un chimpancé, ¡asegúrate de no tener una bolsa llena de plátanos!”
