Community Spotlight: Blood Angels, Norman Warlords, & A Saintly Warrior

July 7, 2017 by crew

We’re back with another Community Spotlight focusing in on more of your amazing work from the last week or so in the Hobby & Painting Forum. Make sure to share your own work and we might feature it!

Without further ado let’s get stuck in…

Primaris Blood Angels by agis

First up we have this set of Primaris Blood Angels that have been coming together over the last few weeks from community member agis.

Primaris Blood Angels #1 by Agis

Here you can see the Captain in Gravis Armour alongside some of the other characters from the Dark Imperium set that has had a lot of work done on them to bring them in line with the Blood Angels chapter. I love the head swaps and the tweaks to the Captain in particular.

The project has gone on another step as well as agis has also painted up an Inceptor from the set and given him the bitz box treatment too.

Now that is one amazing looking Inceptor. These models are certainly a bit of a hit and miss with most people but we think you’ll agree this has taken them to another level. In particular, the use of the wings to Sanguinary Guard from the rest of the range makes a difference and elevates the miniature.

As you can tell agis has some serious skill and it will be fantastic to see the models coming together as a full army. With the amount of customisation he’s already done to the models we’re looking forward to seeing how the squads come out like this chap here…

Now we just await the rest of the army!

Non-Metallic Metal Saint Celestine by tommiesoule

Next up we’re sticking with Warhammer 40,000 (hey, 8th Edition is out and it’s hot right now…) and checking out what the masterful tommiesoule has been doing. Here is his now finished non-metallic metal Saint Celestine.

NMM Saint Celestine #1 by tommiesoule

As well as an experiment in painting using non-metallic metals, which has turned out amazingly here, this was also a piece Tommie wanted to do and send to someone who has been helping him through illness.

NMM Saint Celestine #2 by tommiesoule

It’s a nice gift of thanks and one that we’re sure will take pride of place in a collection. In particular, we should draw attention to the work on that Inquisitorial sigil there and the pattern around the hem of the cape. The deep reds and that level of shading and highlighting really work nicely against the gold armour and the miniature is framed nicely against the cold grey base.

Norman Warlord by dugthefug1644

We now turn to some historical and the work of dugthefug1644 who has been doing some sterling work on SAGA and in particular here his Norman Warlord.

Norman Warlord by dugthefug

We wanted to highlight this one in particular as it has shown skill coming on between his various projects and it’s fantastic to see what he’s doing as he brings a multitude of factions to life. Of note here, of course, we have the very accurate colours that have been painted onto the helmet and the bright shield which works well against the darker chainmail.

It would be terrible to go without pointing out the nice base work too on the Norman Warlord which looks very realistic.

Show Us Your Stuff!

We’ve been blown away by the work from the community once again and would love to see your work in the Hobby & Painting Forum.

All you have to do is head over to the forum linked above and start your own topic to start posting your work. It’s simple to upload photos of your work-in-progress and finished projects and we like seeing the process unfold.

We also don’t mind if you’re a newcomer to painting or a veteran. Everything you folks do inspires us to keep at it with our hobby and we have a wonderful community who like to get involved and share techniques.

What do you think of our entries to the hall of fame this week?
