Hammer time! – Vlka Fenryka army project log pt.8

Hello wolfaholics and welcome back to the final Space wolves update before I fasten my seatbelt and travel to Gibraltar to attend the 7th No Retreat tournament! I have been procrastinating my Wulfen unit for a very long time, partly because I wanted to get the conversions right, but also because I have been afraid of laying my brush on them. Today I’m happy to show you the result of my latest weekend paintathlon. Buckle up, put on some MC Hammer and get ready to collect some skulls!Read More »

Brothers in wolf – Vlka Fenryka project log pt.6

This weekend I managed to maul through another 10 power armored dudes for my Space Wolves army. I finally finished the lascannon Long Fangs, as well as another 5 Tacticals/Grey Hunters. I’m really enjoying the different painting stages and color palette for this army which helps a lot when you have so many marines to finish. Next up on the table is a unit of Wulfen to finish my No Retreat 7 army, and then I will probably  branch off deeper into 30k again with another Leviathan Dreadnought and some Rhinos. Here are some pictures of the finished units.

Avenger Strike Fighter in French WW1 blue

I have been painting a lot of blue armor over the past weeks! Not only for my Space Wolves army, but also for a good friend of mine who recently decided to commission me to paint all the vehicles for his Death Korps of Krieg. I have a weak spot for Forgeworld models, and Imperial ones in particular, so I had to take the offer. I was also very happy that he wanted his vehicles similar to the blue French WW1 uniform – heavily weathered ofcourse. In this article I will run you through how I painted the beautiful Avenger Strike Fighter from Forgeworld. Whether you want your vehicles blue or not, you can pretty much follow this tutorial using any other color.Read More »

Tizca shall burn! – Vlka Fenryka project log pt.5

Have you ever had that annoying sibling who believes in sparkly magic and loves candy red clothing? Well chances says you have, but fear not because there is a steaming hot cure all the way from the forges of Fenris spelled A-R-M-O-R-E-D F-U-R-Y! I managed to finish two new war machines for my Space Wolves legion this weekend, and thought I might as well throw some pictures up before I take some well earned vacation. Enjoy!Read More »

Tutorial: How to magnetize a Sicaran Battletank

Hello and welcome back you plastic pervs (!) to yet another update on my Astartes project! It is almost time to prime here but before I can paint up my latest batch of models I had to conduct some plastic surgery on my Sicaran. As I could not find a decent magnetizing tutorial online, and since I had my camera within rapid fire range, I figured I might as well document it all for you. In this article I’ll take you through the whole process of magnetizing the side sponsons on a Sicaran Battletank, so that you can be that guy who changes weapon loadouts faster than a GW fanboy can spell F-A-Q.Read More »

More resin on the bench!

DSC_0737

Hey there people, it’s been a while but Russ have I’ve been busy! Summer is here and I’ve managed to play about ten games with my Space Wolves and the list that I was about to take to No Retreat 7 in Gibraltar later this summer. After evaluating my armchair general performance against some really good armies I had no choice but to get some more plastic crack in order to tweak the list. This means both good and bad news. Good: by the time I have settled for my 1750pts list, I will have around 2400pts in total to choose from and enough models to play larger games with. Bad: most of the units I have now taken out of the army were already painted, which means that my to-do-pile is rapidly growing. In this article, I will show you some of the resin kits that is currently waiting to get some attention.Read More »
