About the Project

About a month ago Space Crusade was mentioned with regards to Dungeonalia. I have a copy of it which I haven't looked at for about 30 years. I've dug it out and even played a game with my daughter but can I paint it all?

They are the sons of the Angel

I might one day buy some decals to put on the shoulders but I’m certainly not going to try and freehand it.

As I will be using red speed paint on these I thought I would try something different when drybrushing. I’m starting with a Tanned Flesh and then Brainmatter Beige.

The only real Chapter I have ever painted are Dark Angels and that was a long time ago. Slap chopping red for the Blood Angels will be a new experience but I’m learning something new everytime.

I didn’t quite finish all the bad guys before the end of winter but it is the most minis I’ve ever painted in such a short time. All thanks to Army Painter speed paints.

This project has been all about getting stuff done quickly. I wanted to do something slightly different for the Chaos Marines. Primer of Leadbelcher, light drybrush of silver then mixing up some Speedpaints to create a blue-green colour. Here we go!

I’m thinking the Alpha Legion would be skulking around in an old space hulk.

This has definitely been a voyage into slapchopping and using speed paints.

I mostly used AP speed metallics on these. I’ve found that they do need a darker wash over them.

I lightly drybrushed rust over the grey stones to create a uniform effect. I might go back to these at some point but I’m happy.

I have finally finished painting all the Orks and Gretchin. I’ve been thinking about basing. I was going to do fancy spaceship bases but don’t have time for that so I’m going to some use some old AP basing material I have laying around and see what I can do with that

Been working on the skin today. Experimenting with two different greens. AP Orc Skin for the gretchin and AP Charming Chartreuse for the orks.

They’ve been primed with ColourForge Matt Black and drybrushed with a grey and then white. Army Painter speed paints next.

The orks are out of the Dettol and added to the rest to be cleaned up before priming. I’m working on the orks and gretchin first.

Just add Orks and a Genestealer for extra flavour.
