Community Spotlight: Stalwart Space Marines, African Soldiers & Shadespire Stormcast

October 20, 2017 by brennon

Come and join us for another awesome looking into our Hobby & Painting Forum as we pick out some of the neat projects you’ve been working on over the past week or so.

Let’s get stuck in as we take a look at what you’ve been doing.

Primaris Space Marine by brushbashingbiscuit

We’re kicking things off with a little bit of work in progress. Community member brushbashingbiscuit is working on an Armies On Parade board for Warhammer 40,000 and it will centre around his own chapter, the Pillars Of Fortitude. Well, one of his Primaris Space Marines was finished off and it looks ace.

Space Marine #1 by brushbashingbiscuit

The choice of colours across the model looks fantastic and I really like the clash between the cool blue/grey and the yellow on the shoulder pads. The weapons and accessories have also been blended nicely into the scheme as a whole and don’t feel like they stand out too much against the model.

Space Marine #2 by brushbashingbiscuit

This fellow has even done some sterling work on the shoulder pads and the icon as you can see here. That is a rather nice looking stylised pillar that almost has a bit of a ‘wing’ quality to it actually as well which is neat. As well as this chap he’s been working on some other pieces too including a Chaplain.

Space Marine #3 by brushbashingbiscuit

Whilst this model is far from finished it’s looking great already and it will be fun to follow this project through to its conclusion over the coming weeks I don’t doubt. What do you think of his work so far?

Spectre African Militia by tonysilvey

Taking a bit of a turn away from the far future we look to more immediate and modern conflicts with these African Militia soldiers from Spectre by tonysilvey.

African Militia #1 by tonysilvey

The bright colours were the first thing that struck me about these models and it’s nice to see that while each of the soldiers has an individual feel they are tied together by the yellow which no doubt is present across all of the models planned for this force.

There’s even a ‘behind the model’ shot for Lloyd here showing off more of his ace work as he highlighted and shaded the shorts and brought out the details on the models.

If I had one thing to say, it would be that there could be some brush or other foliage on the base just to bring it to life a little more. Otherwise, these are looking fab!

Shadespire Stormcast by erion

Last but not least, with Shadespire coming out it seemed apt that we feature someone who painted up the Stormcast Eternals for his FLG. Take a look at the work from erion.

Shadespire #1 by erion

I love the glow that erion has managed to get in the eyes of Steelheart here and the golden armour has been painted up in a simple but effective way. The model actually has a strange artist quality to it I think.

Shadespire #2 by erion

The superb painting, shading and highlighting continue across the other models as the rest of the warband have been brought to life. I think the painting on the bases has also got to be highlighted, especially that ruined face there in the rubble.

Shadespire #3 by erion

I think that your local gaming store are going to be very happy with how these models have turned out erion! Maybe we can get you to come over and paint up our Shadespire models so we can give John a bit of a break!
