Blightlord Projects Completed

In addition to completing my July project for the 40k Fight Club 2013 Hobby Challenge, a unit of Plague Marines, I also completed a second unit of Plague Marines, a CSM Sorcerer, and a Nurgle Daemon Prince.













It was a good month.

New Project - Blightlord Daemon Prince

In addition to painting my Blightlord Plague Marines this month (which I have already made very good progress on), I am going to work on painting my Blightlord Daemon Prince of Nurgle.


This will be my fourth Daemon Prince of Nurgle once it is done. I know a group of three is a Trifecta, but I am not sure what a group of four is known as. Quadfecta does not seem to be correct. I guess I will have to look that up at some point.

Blood Angel Tactical Squad Complete

I have finished a Blood Angel Tactical Squad.


I started this unit over a year ago, and it is finally done.

Monday, July 8, 2013

Pink Horrors Complete

I have finished a unit of ten Pink Horrors.



Also on the workbench, I am just about done with a Blood Angels Tactical Squad. All I need to do is add static grass to their bases. I am also making good progress on my Plague Marines for the 40k Fight Club 2013 Hobby Challenge.

July Project

My July project for the 40k Fight Club 2013 Hobby Challengeis a unit of Plague Marines for the Blightlord CSM army.



I have two more Plague Marine squads that I would like to paint this month if I find the time.

As for my other projects, I am just about done with a unit of Pink Horrors and a Blood Angel Tactical Squad.

On a different note, you may or may not have noticed that I have a new URL for my blog, warroom.slipwing.com. The old URL will redirect you, so you should not have to update your bookmarks.

Nurgle Helbrute, Typhus, and Possessed Finished

I finished my June project for the 40k Fight Club 2013 Hobby Challenge, a Nurgle Helbrute for my Blightlords army.




I have also finished Typhus.



I also found time to paint a unit of Blightlord Possessed Marines.



I am working on finishing up a unit of ten Pink Horrors and a 10 man Blood Angel Tactical squad which I am hoping to finish before the end of the month.

Bloodletters done, Typhus almost done, and the next project

I did finish the 19 Bloodletters I was painting for last month's 40k Fight Club 2013 Hobby Challenge before the end of the month. I am only just now getting around to posting pictures.



I did not finish Typhus, but I made good progress. I really only have a few details to finish and I should be done. I am going to keep working on him this month.



My project for June is my Nurgle Helbrute. I was hoping to do more greenstuff on it, but I am going to consider it done.

May Painting Projects

My May projects for the 40k Fight Club 2013 Hobby Challenge will be Typhus for my Blightlords army and a unit of 19 Bloodletters for my Daemon army (the 20th one was painted as a test model).





Looking towards next month, there are two projects for my Blightlord army that I really want to finish; My Blightlord Daemon Prince and Helbrute. I still have some conversion work to do on both of them before they are ready for painting, so I will work on getting them finished this month so I can paint them next month.

Dark Angel & Blood Angel Librarians Complete

I have finished painting my Librarians. They came out pretty good, but not my best work.

WIP Librarians

I have made good progress on my Dark Angel Librarian this past week.


This is the first Space Marine Librarian I have ever painted, and it was a bit of an experiment with painting the Ultramarine power armor. I feel I did a good job. Overall I like what I have done up to this point except for the the DA symbol on his chest. This was particularly tough to paint with the cloth folds and all.

I decided that since I was experimenting with painting one Librarian, I would work on a second one at the same time. Here is the progress I have made on my Blood Angel Librarian and I am really happy with how this one is turning out.

My First Painted Pink Horror

I have been on a real painting kick lately. In addition to finishing my first Bloodletter, I have also finished painting my first Pink Horror. I like how it turned out.


I started with black primer. I based the model with Pink Horror, then washed it with Druchii Violet. I layered more Pink Horror and then highlighted with Emperor's Children.

I painted the horns and teeth with Zandri Dust, washed with Seraphim Sepia, then layered with Ushabti Bone and highlighted with Screaming Skull.

For the tongue, I based it with Screamer Pink and then washed it with Druchii Violet.

For the eyes, I simply used Ceramite White.

For the jewelry, I based with Balthasar Gold, washed with Seraphim Sepia, then highlighted with Auric Armour Gold.

For the fire, I went with blue. I started with a base of Caldedor Blue and washed with Drakenhof Nightshade. Then I layered with Calgar Blue and washed with more Drakenhof Nightshade. Finally, I highlighted with Fenrisian Grey.

My First Painted Bloodletter

I have painted my first Bloodletter. I really like the way it came out, especially the Hellblade.



I started with black primer. I based the model with Khorne Red, then a wash with Nuln Oil. I layered more Khorne Red followed by Mephiston Red. I highlighted the 'scales' with Troll Slayer Orange.

I painted the horns, claws, and tongue with Abaddon Black, highlighted with Mechanicus Standard Grey, then washed with Nuln Oil. For the eyes, I used Averland Sunset followed by Flash Git Yellow.

I painted the teeth with Zandri Dust, washed with Seraphim Sepia, then layered with Ushabti Bone and highlighted with Screaming Skull.

For the Hellblade, I based it with Balthasar Gold, layered with Brass Scorpion, highlighted with Leadbelcher, and then washed it twice with Carroburg Crimson. I really like the effect it created.

Blightlord Raptors Complete!

I have finished painting this first of my 40k Fight Club 2013 Hobby Challenge projects for this month, a unit of Blightlord Raptors.


Here is a close-up of the Champion.

April Painting Projects

For my 40k Fight Club 2013 Hobby Challenge projects for April, I am going to paint projects from two different armies. The first project is a unit of CSM Raptors for my Blightlord army.


Second, the Dark Angel Characters from the Dark Vengeance boxed set.


I am also hoping to finish painting some other projects that I started and never finished.

Dark Angel Tactical Squad Complete

I have finished painting my first Dark Angel Tactical Squad that I started painting back in January.

Herald of Nurgle Complete

I have finished painting my new Herald of Nurgle. That completes my March projects for the 40k Fight Club 2013 Hobby Challenge.

Saturday, March 23, 2013

Plague Drones Complete

I have finished painting my Plague Drones. I like how they turned out although the picture does not do them justice.

Saturday, March 9, 2013

Nurgle Daemon Progress

I have built my 40k Fight Club 2013 Hobby Challenge projects. With any luck, I can get them painted before the end of the month.

March Projects - More Nurgle Daemons

Here are my projects for the 40k Fight Club 2013 Hobby Challenge, reineforcements for my Nurgle Daemon army.


I am really excited about the Plague Drones, they are just awesome looking. This Herald will be my fourth one. Fortunately with the new codex, four Heralds can be fielded as a single HQ choice.

X-Wing Reinforcements

Back at Christmas, I got the X-Wing Miniatures game and I have played a few games since then. I really like this game. Last night, I taught my 9-year old son how to play and he loved it. The rules are pretty simple and he was able to pick it up pretty quick. I look forward to having more Father-Son dogfights with him.

Anyway, I stopped at my FLGS on the way home last night and they had the new X-Wing Expansion Ships. So I picked them up. The Falcon and Slave-1 are just huge; their bases are the size of four regular bases. The rules look good for all the ships and I look forward to trying them out.



If you have not tried this game, you really should check it out.

My Ravenwing Force

In addition to my February Projects, I have finished building my Ravenwing army. While I have Sammael in a land speeder, I think I would prefer him on his jetbike.


So far I my total force consists of:
This totals about 1640 points and I think it is a fairly well rounded army. To take it up to 2000 points, I am debating adding a Ravenwing Command Squad, a Darkshroud, and/or a Librarian on bike. Or I could just add some Deathwing Terminators.

Boy, I have a lot of painting ahead of me.

February Projects built

I got my 40k Fight Club 2013 Hobby Challenge projects built for the month. First, a unit of Six Ravenwing Black Knights.


Second, a unit of Company Veterans squad equipped with a Meltagun and three Combi-Meltas.


That is all.

Friday, February 8, 2013

February Project

Here are my projects for the 40k Fight Club 2013 Hobby Challenge.


I am going to build the Ravenwing kits as a unit of six Black Knights. I am not sure what I am going to do with the Veterans yet. I am debating using it for a Command Squad.

Belial and Deathwing Command Squad Built

The last two parts of my 40k Fight Club 2013 Hobby Challenge are built and ready for priming, Belial and a Deathwing Command Squad. I was originally only going to build two Deathwing kits for the challenge, but the new kit was so great that I picked up a third one and used it to build a Command Squad.

Belial
Deathwing Command Squad

This completes my Challenge project for the month. My total kits built for the month is six, which doubles the required number of three required for the challenge. I still have a bonus project of painting my first Dark Angel Tactical Squad. I have made good progress so far. Pictures to come soon.

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Dark Angel Flyers Built

The next two kits that I am building for the 40k Fight Club 2013 Hobby Challenge are built and ready for priming, a Nephilim Fighter and a Dark Talon.

Deathwing Knights

There are a few pieces that are not glued together, like the pilots and canopies, to make it easier to paint later on. These kits are very good and the model assemble easily enough. I know a lot of people are down on the rules for both models, but I still like them and cannot wait to try them out.

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Deathwing Squads Built

This first two parts of my 40k Fight Club 2013 Hobby Challenge are built and ready for priming. First, a unit of Deathwing Knights.

Deathwing Knights

Second, a Deathwing squad with Plasma Cannon.

Deathwing Squad with Plasma Cannon

The new Deathwing Terminator kit is just awesome. The Termies are covered in DA icons and symbology, and there are a lot of extra pieces that I will use at some point to update some of my older plastic Terminator models. I have ten Terminators with Thunder Hammer and Storm shield that I plan to replace the Storm Shields with the new leftover ones from the Deathwing kit. Although, with the introduction of Deathwing Knights, is there a use for Deathwing Termies with Thunderhammer and Storm Shield? I am not so sure, but they will look cool.

January Hobby Project - Part 2

I have pretty much gotten my all my new Dark Angel kits built, and there is still a week and a half left in the month. So I thought I would start painting my Dark Angels. As a bonus project for the 40k Fight Club 2013 Hobby Challenge, I am going to paint a Dark Angels Tactical Squad.


I am going to try the Dark Angel paint recipe that is detailed in the January 2013 issue of White Dwarf.
