Legion of Everblight - journeyman league

Started a week so and am loving the dragons. If I wasn't watching The Thing right now I would post images.

The carnivean is done, and pLylyth is 90% complete. The shredders are takin more time than anything.

Necrons are going along well too. But more on that later.

Armies on Parade and Necrons

Hey Folks,
I busted out the old necrons that were donated by friends getting our of the hobby and think that I am going to start up a Necron force with the impending new dex.  In this case, I think that I am also going to make them my entry for armies on Parade next year.

Now, the question that I have how should the board be made?  An attack on Imperials, awakening form a tomb world?

Head swap with a Hellion, right arm was the Blast pistol from the Scourge sprue swapped to have the Venom Blade from the same sprue.

Dark Eldar Ho!

Working on the DE again.  In this case its the finishing off the half done figs first, Kabalites (2 squads) then Wyches (2 squads)

My iPhone can't get the Dark purple to show, but I am going to try and make a lightbox this weekend to take better shots.

On a side note I got my first commission!  I'll get pics of working through them up as I am doing it.

Hobby ADD

I am hopping back and forth between a lot of different projects...does that happen to anyone out there?

Tonight I basecoated a Dark Angels master, a Wolf Priest of Ulrik and a Dark Eldar Venom.

I was about to start building an Eldar Falcon I've had sitting in a box since eldar got redone in 4th....

Oh! Some work on my Agonizer Archon and Urien Rakarth too.

Pics coming tomorrow after a Costco run.

Getting more work done, but too tired right now to take pics.

Here's the run down:

Got a 2000 point game tomorrow against either Blood Angels or Dark Angels.  Bringing the Grey Knights against him.  Will post pics of the match after the game.

Back to Painting

Well, I need to focus more on painting, so this blog will updated 3-4times a week for the foreseeable future.

On the side note: I am on the fence about Citadel Finecast.  When you get a good fig, they are awesome, but a lax QA process meant that I have gone through 3 Urien Rakarth's, 2 boxes of incubi and 2 archon's to get a decent one.

Here's what I've been working on mainly: a Chaos Lord on Demonic mount.  This is my first finecast fig.

Let me know what you all think!

Silly Exams take away from Painting

Well, studying for exams have taken over my life, but I wanted to give a small update.  It Turns out that if you don't let paint cure when putting making tape on, it peels it all off.  Well, thats a lesson learned.  Heres are two members of the strike squads, my GM and a Termie Justicar.

I write my exam tomorrow, which means tomorrow night I am firing up the airbrush to finish the weapons!

75% done Terminator and a close up of NFW

Few days have gone by since the last post.  I've based all of the gold and parchments on everyone.  This Terminator will give you an idea of where I am at.

I used Les from's method of doing power / force weapons with a small colour tweak.  Its based in Vallejo Model Air Pale Blue, with Hawk Turquoise and Black feathered in with an airbrush respectively.  Here's a closer shot:

Thanks for following!

Someone over at Bolter and Chainsword asked how I do my bases.  Here's a shot of one without a mini glued onto it.

I picked up a textured sheet of plasticard from a local train/hobby shop.  Cut it to shape and beveled the sides to have the same slope as the base.  I used GF9 hobby scenics for the larger chunks of concrete with sand added in general places.

The tile is based with Astronomicon Grey with a Skull White drybrush.  This is followed by a heavy inking using a 2/3 to 1/3 mix of Gryphonne Sepia and Devlan Mud. The rubble and sand is a base of Adeptus Battlegrey and a drybrush of Astronomicon Grey.

When working with this kind of base I find it easier to finish them then glue a basecoated mini on.

Dark Eldar Archon

Learning how to take pics of miniatures.  Bear with me for the time being.

Random purple Kabal that got me back into 40k.  Pic from my iphone

What this is about

Not to say that it's all about me, but this blog will be all about me.  Keeping track of miniature painting and any other random thought that I have kicking in my head.

Down the pipeline is a Grey Knight Army, but in the mean time I will post pieces (finished and WIP) of my Dark Eldar Kabal.

How you enjoy it,
