Well here we go again with another run down of some excellent pieces of individual hobby from all the Lads and Lasses from the Spartans during the month of March. These showcases seem to be getting bigger and better each month! remember you can always click on individual pictures for a close up, so without further ado lets get on with the show…case!
First up we have Si who has continued working on his Heresy era Dark Angels and has based a couple of units on some 90’s and rogue trader era artwork to bring back some retro feels to his force. He also knocked up a termite to carry some interemptors to battle and a Praevian character to lead a unit of Vorax. He really spent some time on the faces to get some nice smooth flesh tones.
Next we have Neil with some kick ass 40K Iron Warriors with a sublime amount of perfectly executed hazard stripes across each model to give that really cool aesthetic. Really good use of the Martian red bases for max contrast along with some subtle but excellent weathering across the armour panels… once again stunning stuff from our favourite Lumberjack!
Next we have Will D who has painted up a super cool looking chaplain on a super cool batman bike. nice work on the leather bound book and the gold trim. He’s also knocked up a really sci-fi punk looking sister of battle and love the outrageous in your face neon green wig to really grab your attention to the model for a unique look. great work bud!
Up next we have Tony with some more of his really cool looking Bushido model, which i think you will agree is absolutely smoking! great transitions from the blue to the green and achieved that classic oriental styled colour palette. He’s also nicely picked out the details to create a very cool looking mini, lovely stuff buddy!
up Next its Rob with 2 more tanks for his Vostoyan guard army in with nice use of the red trim against the dirty white camo of the armour panels. Robs also started another new army and this one is the form of some lizard men and some awesome looking skinks and i love the giant ankylosaurus’ colour choices and the vibrant green looks great and is a nice contrast against the browns and oranges of the bases, which again look tremendous! nice work bud!
Next is Samuel with a skaven rat wizard and a chaos warrior… Samuel has recently trying to push his painting skills and was playing around with OSL from the green ball of energy, which looks great. Love the white fur choice against the bright red and blue for max contrast. Also love the chaos warrior with the choice of the deep green it just works so well with the muted brown of the cloak. some nice NMM silvers as well… awesome work once again bud!
Next we have Paul E with a super cool looking Sicaran for his Blood Angels, great work on the green lenses and the choice of black accent colour really helps to break up the red as well as the metallics with some worn effects and rusted tracks. this looks like a very accomplished looking model, top work bud!
next we have Nick with his finished Aliens game, which looks so good all of the aliens look so good especially the big queen and her carapace but what really stands out for me is the face hugger pods and the computer terminals as these have been executed so well…. in fact these models have really made me want to play this game, its just a shame Nick decided to move to a different part of the country!! great work bud i love these!
Next up we have Edd with some more of his Glorious 13th and what looks like a very busy month by painting up a reasonably sized forced with 5 dreadnoughts, 4 tanks and a lot of infantry all of which are looking fantastic! I love the different use of different armour marks across the units. The gold trim is really well done and the flesh and faces are spot on. very nice as always bud!!
Next we have Mark with 2 great looking characters with a nice shade of green used for the salamander and nicely blended flame effect and cool looking base it really screams Vulkans finest especially the charcoal skin and flame red eyes. The blood angel also looks really nice with a deep arterial red and contrasted well with the cream and gold. nice work as always bud.
Up next we have the industrious Joel and more of his new Heresy era Death Guard in the cream and olive green and brass trim. Such a well executed paint job with a very nice weathered paint job to capture the aesthetic of Barbaros’ warrior sons. lovely stuff Joel i really look forward to seeing this army expand.
Next we have Jack with some mutated chaos terminators and some great looking slime an decay affects painted across each model. love the impaled marine helmets and bone effects on the tusks and skulls and the blue is a nice contrast to it all. great work mate!
Next we have Graham an awesome friendly tree with jazz hands! love the work on the bark and the flocked base looks cool and i love the little critters climbing amongst the branches. He’s also painted up a rather dandy looking human bloodbowl team and these look fantastic, great flesh and faces across each model and the plumes are simply magnificent and the red and black has been highlighted well and the gold trim works well to tie them together, seriously good work bud!
Up next we have Chris with some more of his awesome looking Blood Angels this time with some Primaris in cool action poses. I love the use of the yellow to add a contrast colour to create interest with the red and black and armour. As we have come to expect from Chris the edge highlights are spot on and its a very crisp paint job all round… lovely stuff as always bud!
Next we have Dunkers who has taken a step away from the Nightlords for some hefty ogre action and some great looking fat lads with cool skin tones and rusted weapons in their matching denim jeans they look a bunch of geordies going to watch their beloved toon army! Great snowy bases add that extra level of detail but my absolute fave is the skeletal screaming demonic mammoth creature thingymabob… love the work on the bones and rotting fur great stuff bud!
Next we have Dan G with a very cool hunter model and for some reasons reminds me of the Wild Thornberry’s. great work on the leather and the blunderbuss rifle and the base really adds a sense of scene on such a small base and a cool looking face! nice work dude!
Next we have Alex who has finished off a really cool looking Necron army with some nice use of red and brass colours to offset the silver metallics and give a nice contrast between warm and cool colour choices especially with the use of the vibrant green throughout. We look forward to more entries from Alex in the future!
Next we have Oliver with a very cool Necron character, who has used lots of subtle colours to break up the silver metallics and and create contrast across the model. i really like the use of the blue on the staff and the purple orb and the white face contrasts well with the green insignias and symbols. Very cool work indeed!!
Next we have Laffan with some more of his kingdom of death models, a harlequin and a little gobbo. Love the dude with the giant sword and the blends along the blade and he has done some nice work on the cloak and on the armour for nice NMM effect. He’s also done some clever kitbashing on the Harlequin and the little gobbo is super sweet. very nice stuff bud and really like the step up in pushing your skills on the NMM, great stuff!
With a last minute entry we have Barry with some more of his futuristic looking dudes and the super cool, super neon, super duper paint scheme. Really nice transitions across the model and the placement of the light sources are spot on and the added orange light sources looks so good! this is absolutely stunning!
And bringing up the rear like he always does we have Kieran and some lovely looking ladies with the nice choice of the white and blue scheme and the use of a red accent colour makes the special characters look awesome! I really like the banner bearer in the simplistic stone effect and the bases are super cool as well. love these buddy!
so there we go for another month and once again a fantastic collection of artwork, so until next time get your hobby juices flowing and get something ready for Aprils showcase!
