Apologies for another rather late monthly round up of March’s hobby goodness from all the geeks and gals in at the home of the Spartans. Remember you can always click on the pictures for a closer look so lets get straight into it…
We’re off to a very strong start with Steve who has finished up his entry for the painting comp at salute, which is absolutely stunning love the placement of the lighting to make the sheened finish to the Alien head.. The piece is simple yet it absolutely oozes character and looks so dynamic especially with the water effects which he has absolutely nailed. Really top drawer lad, not sure how he did in the painting comp but its a winner in my eyes, have a feast on this!
Next we have Rob who has been painting up some iron warriors for his 40k force, which look sweet in MK3 armour. very nice and crisp silver with hazard striping trim to really make them stand out. He has also done some mutated chaos things which again tie into his iron warriors and also have some really nice flesh tones painted throughout. Finally he has painted some spear dudes on horses, which look really nice and is a change to the usual orkish stuff he normally paints. good stuff mate!
Next up we have Si who has managed to find a little mojo again and painted up 3 Horus Heresy consuls for his Alpha Legion and a termite drill to ride in as well as a couple of characters for Paul’s Raven Guard with power weapons. Finally he painted up 2 more D&D characters for when Dunk decides to kill him off in their current campaign. One is a monk Tortle (which is simply ‘Geordie’ for Turtle) and the other is a gnome bard.
Up next we have Dunk with a plethora of pictures of the many models he has been working on, which have been the new chaos marines. Love the crispness of the paint job and the classic black and gold scheme always looks so good. Really nice job on the character to give an OSL effect on the weapon and again on the cheeky litte genestealer cultist. What can i say that we haven’t said before about Dunkers paint jobs… they are proper loverly!
Next we have Dan G who has been painting some bigger models with some imperial Knights and an armiger for his 40K force along with 2 guardsmen. Great work on the metallics on the knights to show a nice crisp trim to counter the deep matte blue of the armour. great stuff Dan nice to see you painting a wide range of models at the mo!
Next we have Greggles who has been working on his Custodes for 40k and continuing his jetbike chap. Love the use of the shield on the bike to give a little uniqueness to the character and the scheme is nice and different as well. Gold looks really rich and deep and all round very nicely done job! well done mate.
Next we have Lewis and unfortunately the pictures aren’t the best to see all the detail that has gone into these lovely looking Eldar Harlequins and Sameal on his jetbike for Dark Angels. The ‘Quins have been done so nicely its such a shame you cant see them properly. really good work Lewis!
Next we have John who has been working on some weird and wonderful looking models, with some really nice flesh tones across them. John has been playing with adding colour into his palette to help create interesting layers to his paint schemes. Plus John likes to paint weird shit so it works really well with that as well. great job mate!
Next we have Phil who has been balls deep in Necromunda with painting up some Ambots and a Rogue Psyker, which are looking briliant. love the worn effects on the AMbot and the dust effects really give it a worn and battered feel. The Psykers robes look really nice and offer a strong contrast to the sun kissed flesh above, which has been done very well. this is noice work Phill!
Up next we have Paul who has continued his theme of smashing stuff out to a high standard, this time its some more Adeptus Titanicus knights and boy do they look sweet. He’s painted them so cleanly they look like they are 28mm scale!! Lovely as always matey! Great scheme by the way.
And last but no means least we have Will with a crunchy Armadillo, which i absolutely love. The NNM steel has been done well with some nice blends and the natural armour looks realistic the way it has been painted. Its such a cool model that looks even better with a sweet paint job like this, awesome work buddy!
So thats it for March, i hope its got the hobby throbby going for you and we shall return very soon with Aprils round up!
