I love the pose on this mini; “look into my eyes, not around the eyes, directly into my eyes, 3,2,1 sleep…” *Eats face*

I hated painting this mini, which is why it took me so long. Maybe it was the pressure of painting a £20 miniature, but a lot of it was to do with the size. There was a cluster of details on the right hip that I couldn’t even identify. I’d nearly finished before I realised it was two daggers and a bow. Anyway, I’m happy with the results and have painted her to match the rest of the gang in case I just want to use her as a gang member.

I have loads of Deadzone scenery that I use for, unsurprisingly, playing Deadzone. It’s an awesome game. So when I decided to pick up Necromunda and Kill Team, it was with the idea I would use this scenery. Sorry GW, I love you, but you’re an expensive mistress. Costs need to be cut somewhere.

A lot of my DZ stuff was painted in 2015 though, back when the world was a calmer, happier place, and my painting was a little less polished. I’ve tinkered with them, bringing them up to 2018 dystopian nightmare standards.

The Great Enemy

Converted some Dark Vengeance Chaos Marines, swapping a power axe for a chainsword and a bolter for a plasma gun. Will hopefully put them to one side now and finish the Charcharodons.

Couldn't help starting another Kill Team. Try to focus Moonunit!

Built up and basecoated a few more Carcharodons for my Kill Team. Got some symbols from shapeways and did a bit of conversion work. One of the things I love about the Space Sharks is that they are ancient, using a mixture of old tech and armour plus whatever they get from the Grey Tithe.

Although, technically, the Carcharodons may not even be on the list to be reinforced with Primaris Marines, I'm told they will eventually be given the ability to make their own. Maybe Belisarius Caul is aware of them out there in the Dark...Although, technically, the Carcharodons may not even be on the list to be reinforced with Primaris Marines, I'm told they will eventually be given the ability to make their own.

Robbie Macniven has managed to make me obsessed with Space Sharks, due to the awesome “Red Tithe” and its sequel, “the Outer Dark.” As such, who else could I choose for my first Kill Team?

Game boards need scatter terrain, and I love the fact that the underhive is teeming with weird fungal lifeforms, so of course I’m gonna fill my hive with glowing fungus.

I knew this would happen as soon as I started a project blog. I got distracted. Anyway, finally got the other side of my 4×4 board done. Now to paint it.

Well it has begun. The plan is to make two 2’x4′ boards that can be slotted together. There will be a sludge filled canal separating two flat areas on which I will put my scenery items, with a few built in bits of scenery to give the board some flavour. Second half coming soon…

Ladies and genitalmen, I bring you my first gang of Underhive scum, the Vagina Dentatas! I had a lot of fun painting these.
