Word Bearers Chosen champion

Here a few quick dirty snaps of the champion from my batch of Word Bearers marines, from the Dark Vengeance box.  I have to say, I'm not entirely sure whether he's finished or not... In fact it's likely that the third eye in his forehead could have been done a bit better, but I think it's OK for a dude with shaky hands. I also hope I've not overdone it by giving him a bit of blue tinted flesh.

Decide for yourselves!

It's that common cold time of year

Been feeling a bit under the weather and that. Plus I had to go shopping in Bromley with the Mrs. Thus, painting has kind of not happened this weekend.

But I have managed to get some hobby related stuff done, so it's not been quite a complete and utter write-off.

Basically an order of stuff from Forge World which had been floating around in purgatory for a good six weeks finally turned up round my mates house last week. Which is boss. So I've now finally got arms for my Death Guard dreadnought, as well a Blight Drone and Nurgle Chaos marine sorcerer.  Splendid.

I'd also ordered the finecast version of Typhus, which also showed up at the end of last week. Some of the old metal models that GW are now doing in finecast haven't been coming out as well as the newer models which were specifically designed to be done in Finecast anyway, so I was a bit worried about what was actually going to show up on the doorstep. Really pleased with the model actually. Really crisp casting, no defects, no bent bits. I also picked up the Dark Apostle on a whim in GW Bromley.

So when I say I've managed to get some hobby related stuff done, this actually translates as trimming resin. Soaking resin to get shut of mould release agent. Scrubbing resin with old toothbrush. But hey, it would have needed doing at some point anyways... and I have to say my brain was in no fit state for painting.

Will have to see if I manage to perk up a bit later on as to whether I get some painting done, I suppose.

I know I can't do any airbrushing in the kitchen today, as the Mrs is making Xmas puddings for both sets of parents (who even eats that stuff anyway?)

Word Bearers marine #3

This is the third of my Word Bearers (or Dark Vengeance Chosen).  I almost feel like I've been incredibly productive, although I'm clearly working a lot more slowly than pretty much anybody that I can think of off the top of my head.

Again, I'm pretty satisfied with this overall. I can only hope the Urizen would be proud.

Details of the paint scheme and general ideas behind these guys can be found here:

Relics of a fallen Imperium part 4

Word Bearers marine #2

So, I actually managed to get some more painting done over the last week. OK, OK, know, its just one measly marine, but I did spend about 1 hour per evening on it. I think I'm pretty happy with how it has turned out though.

Expect more slow progress soon...
