W.I.P Epic scale Wolf Guard Terminators

This is my first ever Epic scale Terminator unit, I know hard to believe eh. I don't know why i have never gotten round to building this unit before but there you have it. Better late than never.

So I wanted to show the assault cannons on the models so I got some 0.88 mm size plastic tubing and put it on. After looking at it for some time half finished on my project desk, i didn't like the look of the placement of the tubing. So I cut in off and repositioned lower so it looks more like the 28mm one. I think it looks a lot better.

More to come..........

W.I.P Space Wolves Landraiders.

You would think with me having so many ( 50+ ) of the old Epic Mk1 Landraiders I should have more painted up. The fact is i just never got round to it. I always had other units i wanted to finish first.

Well that is about to change, this first lot, will be done soon and then i have plans on starting a second unit of Mk1's. just after i finish the other two projects i have half done then. Lol that is so like me, start something then get bored and start another.

Second Warlord titan

This is my second of my five battle titans in as many months, if you read my other post about my first titan it will tell you it took me nearly 20 years to finish the first one, so a second in just a "few" months/year is Amazing. The colours are going to be a bit different from the first one, but this is normal for each titan to have a distinctive colour scheme. I wanted to go with an all steel colour edging on this one as I thought it would look cool.

I wanted a more realistic look to my titans now. Before i was ok with the bright paint job, but now i want realism. With the prospect of a new version of Adeptus Titanicus soonish it has reignited my interest in my Titan Legion.

So watch this space for more Titans in the near future.

Leman Russ Battle Tank.

I decided i needed to paint up one of my Leman Russ tanks, what better way than by using the forgeworld masterclass book. My fantastic Wife got me this book a few years ago for Xmas and i have only really used a few bits out of it. So i thought it was high time i did a big project with it.

I have to give credit were credit is due, it is a really good book, the step by step (ow baby) tutorials are excellent and they use the same techniques all the way through.

Am i the only one that thinks the Russ should have headlights i mean come on it is the 41st millenium and your are fighting the Holy Emperors enemys all over the galaxy and on all types of worlds you need to see were you are going. I am sure you can see were I am going with this i put some rhino headlights on all my vehicles. It is a bit expensive (buying the bits) but i think it really makes the Russ look a lot better.

New Adeptus Titanicus

I am very excited about the new Adeptus Titanicus that has been announced, I know that the 8mm scale that it is speculated to be has some die hard fans a bit upset. I get that, but well I think any fan of 6mm Epic have looked at a Space Marine rhino and thought there is no way all those marines can fit inside. A good amount of the old range was a mix of scales in my mind, so upping the scale by 2 extra mm is ok with me.

Just thinking about the future has my mind racing, new models, new players etc. In my humble option this is the Best scale for large battles. There is nothing better in wargaming than seeing a table full of small scale units. I am Slowly Thuring to how I have feel towards GW the new direction and fan interaction is refreshing. Especially after that sith lord scum Kirby has left.

I suck.

It is true, i really suck at blogging i just haven't put the time in needed to keep it going. I can come up with a load of excuses (or reasons as i tell my wife) as to why i have not blogged but what it comes down to is i have very little spare time on my hands. When i do have "free" time i am lazy and unmotivated. So what to do? well change is what. Now don't expect a post a week or anything like that, i am still going to be a part time blogger. I am hoping to just do a bit more, well fingers crossed
