Tentacles for the tentacle god

I made about twenty tentacles for this one.  So many that they didn't all fit in his mouth.  On balance, I think I love tentacles more than magnets.

Making Amends

I finally caved in and bought the Tyranid codex.  The rational human being in me wants to continue playing Space Marines.

Red Scorpions (and Guilliman)

A full shot of my army with Guilliman lurking in the background.  A gentle reminder of who's really running the show. Papa Smurf is my secret, guilty pleasure.

Warpstorm X

Another successful Warpstorm tournament was held over the weekend (thanks to Hagen Kerr over on Quietly in the Background).

Rob Zombie

I remember the day I sold my soul to Satan.  It was last Friday at approximately 4.36pm.

Mutually Assured Destruction

 The dreadnought is complete at last and I decided to make myself a 40k demotivational poster to celebrate.

Wave of Mutilation

An update on the Redemptor to keep me going.  Weirdly, I have almost finished the base.  Just details really and a bit of flock and grass effects to go. This is highly unusual since bases usually bore the crap out of me.

'Tis but a scratch!

The Hive Mind will not be happy about this.  My poor Genestealer Patriarch has been sacrificed to the cause and is now unplayable except as a piece of scenery.

Call To Arms 2017

Call To Arms was a 5 round, 1500 point, 40k tournament hosted at St. Pats over the weekend.

Over the hump

Primaris Captain and Lieutenant completed.  I've slowed to a snail's pace but real life gets in the way sometimes.  Plus I wanted to get more detail on our glorious leader(s) because these were the showpiece models.  Going back to finish the last intercessor squad will be almost enjoyable in comparison.

The Joy of Painting

Squad Kartoffelkopf  is complete.  If anything, I'm going even slower. Edge highlighting will be the death of me.

On the edge-highlight of madness

Squad Panzerschreck complete.  Again it took far longer than I anticipated.  Being a naturally untidy person I struggle to be neat.  I could never stay in the lines when I was given a colouring book whilst growing up and didn't think it mattered.  I had no idea it was an important life skill.

Questionable Behaviour

 The weird thing about the Dark Imperium boxed set is that I don't like the Intercessor Sergeants.

One size does not fit all

After another drubbing in a game with my new Space Marine army, I decided to take stock.

Tell me when it kicks in

Squad Dauntless complete.  It took a bit longer than I thought.  I sat painting with Duncan Rhodes' sage advice echoing in my head like an Oracle: "Try to be as neat as you can, because it saves time later on".  Duncan's imaginary Slaaneshi twin was also whispering in the back of my mind somewhere, "Make his eyes look like Cookie Monster!" but I ignored him.

Strength in Purity

So this post should have been about my new Genestealer Cultists and how simply fabulous they are darling.

One size fits all

These Primaris Space Marines are huge.  The posing is great and much more dynamic.  It actually looks like there is a post-human inside that armour rather than a mannequin.
