About the Project

This project portrays my wargame miniatures collection from over the past fifteen years. I've kept the genres together, so I'll start out with Fantasy then Sci-fi and then historical.

Plague Marines; My first foray into 40K

These guys are my first 40K army and have been upated and expanded throughout the 12 years I’ve had them. Their colourscheme is based on a White Dwarf tutorial, drybrushing up their armour from a dark brown to a light green and then painting the banding in a rusty metallic. I chose a greyish blue as a spot colour. Most of the shoulder pads have had some greenstuff work done to them, some of my first experiments with ‘scultping’.

Catachan Jungle Fighters

These guys are about the same age as my chaos marines and resulted from an impulse buy after seeing the movies ‘Predator’ and ‘Platoon’ for the umpteenth time ๐Ÿ˜€ Still over the years I’ve added some vehicles and characters (and some much needed washes!) to bring them up to standard with the rest of my 40K.

Cadian 180th Stalking Tigers

Those Chaos Marines were technically not my first 40K mini’s as I’ve had some plastic Cadians in my first year of collecting but they were painted terribly bad. After selling them off to a friend, they came back into my possession years later (about 3 years ago) with a load of others Cadians. I decided to make them fit in with my Catachans as a jungle themed force although these guys would be footsloggers as opposed to my fully mechanized Catachans. Ruleswise I play my Cadians as regulars and my Catachans as veterans, so mixing them on the table doens’t seem too far out of place (although I tend to avoid it). For the colourscheme I followed a pattern from the old IG codex.

To contrast the regulars I’ve added in some colourful characters, using Sister Repentia’s that I had laying around as priests and a FW DKK Quartermaster as my Commissar. I thought it fitting to make my company commander a shellshocked green officer in contrast to my grizzeled Catachan Powerfist-wielding ultimate badass commander ๐Ÿ˜€

Adeptus Mechanicus

These Ad Mech models were painted about two years ago and helped me get a best painted award at a local tournament. They were the first real attempt at freehanding. I played it a safe andย  tried to copy a number of Blanche drawings. The Knight itself is called ‘The Alliance’ and the drawings are to symbolize the alliance between Terra and Mars (hence the difference in colours). I felt that restricting my colour palate and giving everything an overall brown wash helped elevate the painting somewhat and not give it ‘crappy drawing’ feel. The model itself is largely magnetized and the claw is fully articulate. The basing has been done in the same fashion as the rest of my Imperial stuff to make everything match. Pretty satisfied with this collection overall. ๐Ÿ™‚

Black Templars

This army I got second hand from a friend who had already built it and put on block colours. I decided to keep the paint scheme (checkered beige and black) and just enhance it a with some washes, quick highlights and some spot colours. I also put the assault marines up so it looks like they’re flying. The basing is done in the same style as the rest of my 40k to tie in with eachother. A pretty quick refurbishing job (though I need to get them onto the table more often!).

Alien vs. Predator

One of my side-projects that I speedpainted last week. I’ve always been a huge Predator fan so last year I finally picked up AvP second edition. The aliens were aibrushed chrome and then had a couple of blue, purple and black washes. The predator skin was done beige with a brown and then a gloss fleshtone wash. The most fun I had on this project were the bases. Some figures came without one, so I made some myself using greenstuff and a textured rolling pin.

Plague Marines v2

It’s been a while since I updated! Feels like months but it’s almost a year (save time, don’t get a kid ๐Ÿ˜€ ).

Last year I picked up some of the new Plague Marines alongside some oldskool and very oldskool PM’s. I decided to give them a bit more colour than the old ones I have since I’ll never be able to recreate the exact painting scheme anyway. It’s all speedy paint and the bases still need tufts etc, so nothing too fancy but I had them on hand so it seemed like a good opportunity to update ye olde projekt!

 

Plague Marines v3!

So about a year ago, I managed to pick up a large collection of second hand Plague Marines for a megabattle we were planning in the club (although that sadly got cancelled). They were in various states of paint, primer, crappy conversions etc. I decided not to go with the v2 paint scheme as it would take me too long to get everything done. Luckily Contrast Paints had just released! ๐Ÿ˜€ A couple weeks of cutting corners and a bit of hard work saw the entire collection finished.

More recently I also finished up some Nurgle Daemons that will be dual purpose for 40k and AoS. These were matched in paint scheme with my other daemons for a bit more consistency.

All I’ve got left to paint for this large army is some more vehicles (which are waiting in storage… ๐Ÿ˜€ )

APC from Aliens and the team from Predator

Too bad that Prodos lost the license for AvP because they made some great mini’s. When they did their final sale, I picked up the APC since it’s just such a cool model. I speedpainted this using preshading and inks. The bright colour was a deliberate choice to match the vehicle with my marines (plus olive drab is so drab anyway ๐Ÿ˜€ )

I was also really happy when a couple of weeks ago Studio Miniatures was featured on the Weekender since I had only recently finished up my Predator crew. Amazing sculpts and very fun to paint, highly recommended!

Years ago I picked up a very worn second hand box of the old Space Marine game. It contained a mix of Imperial stuff and some Orks aswell. In more recent years I supplemented that with a pristine box of Epic 40.000 and some odds and ends.

Imperial Fists seemed the way to go as yellow is nice and bright and works well on this scale ๐Ÿ™‚

Impy Fist Kill Team and Crimson Fists

Recently I saw a tutorial on youtube to make a vibrant yellow with pink and yellow ink. It was the perfect excuse to get me some primaris marines (which I hasn’t tried until now) and get airbrushing.

The Crimsons Fists are a relic from the time when the original Planetstrike hit the shelves. I speedpainted my way through a bunch of snap fit marines and termies. Later I decied to go back in and add in some highlights and freehand the Crimson Fist onto their shoulderspads, because apparently I’m a masochist. These guys also a number of vehicles, but I haven’t gotten round to updating their paintscheme yet.

Last year my gaming club decided to delve into 10mm Kings of War (although we all have multiple 28mm armies for it…) My eye fell onto the Magister Militum Wood Elves. For this project I wanted to use some new products, specifically the then new contrast paints and some basing material from Greenstuff World. Pretty happy with how they turned out considering the time I spent on them.

This part of my collection is for my self written fantasy world. One of the human armies is called the Northern Commonwealth and is fighting a relentless battle against the Undead. Original, I know ๐Ÿ˜€

I’ve got enough human stuff to fill a Kings of War army but it’s not all painted yet. With the release of SAGA Age of Magic, it was a great opportunity to get part of it painted and reay for gaming!

The infantry is painted with some Rus Princes iconography so they’ll also serve me in SAGA Dark Age.
