Welcome to another monthly round up of hobby goodness from all the geeks and gals in at the home of the Spartans. Its another bumper month with nice variety of game systems and models on offer. Remember you can always click on the pictures for a closer look so lets get straight into it…
first up we have Dan King and his rather smashing looking selection of WW2 army fellows looking suitably brilliant in their camouflage and khakis. The bases also give a nice sense of realism as they hunker down in the mud of the battlefield. However, the pièce de résistance is the rather glorious weathered and realistic looking tank. Great work to dirty it up and make looking awesome!
Next we have Rob and some more savage looking creatures (obviously) LOTR orks and they look really nice with the brown reddish flesh and the white face paint to give them the character from the films. The bases are also very well done which again harks back to the film and creates a setting for the models. Rob has also had a go at some more iron warriors with a missile launcher sqaud… how very iron warriors! but they look great more of the same please Robert!
Next we have Steve F and a rather cool little Deadpool parody. love all the little details and touches to this model that really makes it stand out as humorous as well expertly painted. Very nice blends across the model and particularly think the blades have been done very well to give a reflective finish, which isn’t easy to accomplish. top drawer mate really superb work!! don’t really know what else to say apart from just feast your eyes on all of its glory!
Next we have Neil with some super duper looking 40K Death Guard and i absolutely love the fact he has gone with the heresy era aesthetic for the colour scheme as i think it lends itself nicely to the decay and rust effects he has expertly painted in their festering wounds. Great use of the turquoise to offset the rusty bronze on the metal areas. Neil has defo hit a purple patch with his painting at the minute as they are looking sooo good month after month. excellent stuff once again fella, lovely stuff!!
Up next we have Dan G with sparkly looking custodes jebike as he has gone for a completely unique cream scheme that helps to accentuate the gold and red of the rider. Not sure if this is going to be a full army or just a little side project but it would be nice to see a while army of these bad boys on the table top. nice work Dan lad.
On to the next nerd and we have Paul with a million pictures of his millions and millions of models that he’s painted for september. This time Paul has gone balls deep into adptus titanicus and he has pulled off some freaking awesome paint schemes for his Legio Mortis titans and house Malinax. these look great and the stripes and cheques of the shoulder and knee pads have been done so well. Rally looking forward to seeing this legio walk on the tabletop soon. These are fantastic Paul well done!
Next we have Dom and the start of his new Blood Angel army, who has painted up some lovely crisp red marines with creamy white shoulder pads. I think is his new kill team and the use of white on the helmets and tabard breaks up the red nicely and looks very regal with the gold trim and is a different but cool take on the Blood Angels colour scheme. The bases also look very nice and help to give the models character well done Dom.
Next we have Dunk and some more awesome looking Heresy era Death Guard with sicaran venator with great mud and chipping effects and suitably filthy streaks to give it a really realistic effect. Dunkers has also knocked up a few marines and i love the subtle nod to nurgle in the shoulder pads weathering effects, very cool! also a very tidy paint job which has been covered with an effective and appropriate level of weathering. as always top drawer mate!
Up next we have Ian and his Dwarven Ranger he has painted up as part of Dunkers latest Role Play experience. Love the vibrant ginger beard and how he has given a real depth and texture to it. along with some tidy metal trim work this dwarven ranger is looking hot to trot! Great work Ian we look forward to seeing him in action in the Tomb of Annihilation.
Next we have John and his recent entries for the Iron Painter competition. Which are very impressive for several reasons, least of all that John usually hobbies about as much as Marlow isn’t out pimping but also that dragon!! lovely transitions on the wings and great use of colours on the scales to create interest between the different greens. Topped off with a thematic base this things looks topper! John also painted up a little girl in a pink shellsuit… no one knows why and no one is allowed to ask! congratulations on getting 4 votes for this entry (seriously) we know just how competitive these painting competitions can be! keep it up mate and we hope to see more from you soon!
Next we have Kieran and some lovely looking Javelins for his new and ever growing heresy era white scar army. These are particularly impressive considering he’s not using an airbrush to paint these models, which are looking great! Good use of the red as an accent colour to break up the white and add interest to the models. top stuff bud!
Next we have Si and some evidence that he has progressed further and deeper into nerdhood by painting and taking part in his first DnD experience with an Elven rogue standing on a log… fucking nerd! And some more of his Dark Angels this time a 10 man tac squad and a 10 man rotor cannon squad and 2 apothecaries for the augury scanner spam…. whoops that should say ‘feel no pain’. and they look, well black they look black and its hard to create interest with painting black!
Next we have Lawrence who has been painting something completely different in the form of some golden minotaurs with a lovely effect to give the gold a rich effect using colours to give warmth to the metal. Its been a few months since Lawrence showcased anything so its good to have him back and back with a bang indeed as these models look like ornaments you could pick up at the great museum in Luxor! Painting gold is easy but painting gold so it actually looks good is really difficult and Lawrence has nailed this!!! love ’em!
y finalmente, por último, pero no menos importante, tenemos a Mister Marlow y su espléndida colección de personajes de juego de rol Dragones y mazmorras. ¡Marlow ha estado trabajando muy duro en su pintura recientemente y se está mostrando realmente con la continuidad de modelos de gran apariencia mes a mes ahora! A Lovely MArlow realmente le gusta el trabajo de la bata ya que las mezclas mejoran cada mes. muchacho superior
So there we have it for September and another batch of awesome looking models… we hope this inspires you to pick up a brush and enter something for October regardless of ability this is just to share your hobby goodness to the world. so with that in mind i shall leave you with something that Marlow once said to me.
