#Top5 and other bits

Hello! It’s Sunday again! My god the weeks fly, I must be having too much fun 😉 On the hobby front that is very true, what with the daily painting sessions and frantic kitbashing blitzes, the Saturday night RPG sessions, which are just the best and a right laugh, to the finishing of long over due projects, it’s all pretty sweet. I do however miss a good old massacre over some lovingly crafted terrain and the socialising that goes with it. These times will happen again to be sure and when they do I will have an abundance of models and terrain to choose from, as I hope you all will too.

So onto things hobby nuts! I was recently asked to do my top 5 on Instagram. Now I don’t usually take part in these sort of things but as it was hobby related I thought I would give it a bash. It was hard!! Really hard! It took me about a week of thinking about it and thinking of all the models I’d done and reasons why they may make the cut. Five is a horrible number for such a thing as, as I’m sure you will agree, painting models, we put so much effort into them and learn so much from doing it that they all have meaning to us. So after it got all too much I took the plunge and below are my top five.

Ok whats up next! A quick project I painted this weekend. A work in monochrome. Really enjoyed painting with such a limited palette and I’m keen to try it on my next Mag Bellum set. This is a Inq28 warband that’s been lying around staring at me looking all depressing in their undercoat begging me to finish them off and I’m glad I did because what I’ve ended up with is quite a striking group that was quick to paint.

Next up we have another war band. Inq28 is getting a lot of love these days! This is the Flawed Saint and her followers of dubious nature.

And last but not least. A big Adepta Sororitas Relic Chapel Tank. This was a bit of a distraction and came about wanting to paint a tank but not owning one so I designed the chassis in CAD and 3D printed it plus a few other parts like the treads and then used a combination of failed prints, random plastic parts and some old used GW scenery to create the rest. The St at the top is also a 3D print and the whole thing was great fun to make.

The aim of this beast is to carry sisters with heavy weapons whilst striking faith into the hordes of fanatics surrounding it and fear to those who oppose it! Armed with 6 heavy flamers it can surround itself in righteous flame whilst a Sister dialogues screams from the pulpit at the head of the beast.

  1. Great painting as always, I love the muted colours on the INQ28 warband. And that chapel tank looks amazing!

    1. Thanks Dave! I’m going to have to break out the big brushes for the tank!

  3. Awesome stuff mate, that’s a helluvalot of tank, and wow – that monochrome painting style looks pretty damn cool dude!

    1. Thanks mate. I’m pretty pleased with monochrome and it’s a really fast way to paint. Yeah that tank will take a lot of paint. I’m going to do the base coats in oils I think 🙂

    1. Cheers mate! The tank was one of projects that wasn’t planned. It just kinda appeared.

    1. Thanks mate! It’s been good doing blog posts again. I’ve got boxes of sisters and more coming! Looks like I’ll be painting sisters for the remainder of the year! 😝

      1. I’m looking forward to seeing your take on them mate. You’ve certainly inspired me to get back to my Inq28 painting. My box of stormcast will get more texture splattered on them today!

      2. That’s really cool mate! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
