Epic scale Space Wolves Landraiders finished.

So i have finished my Epic scale Space Wolves Landraiders. I have to say, i am happy with the way they have turned out.

I converted the Lascannons on two of them, so they are straight with the hull. I really think they look a lot better than the original position. I drilled out the barrels as i think it looks more realistic than just painting them with on.

I added a long fang decal from the Epic space wolf set to the doors of each raider to add a bit more detail. I believe it finishes it off nicely. I painted optics onto the front view ports as well.

Epic scale Wolf Guard Terminators.

I have finally managed to finish up one of my many many many ongoing projects. I am really happy with the way they have turned out. I wanted to have as much detail as i could on them because well they are the best of the best.

The squad leader or battle leader i think it is called (not a expert) needed a close combat weapon but i was undecided about going with a sword or a battle axe. So i decided on neither! i went with a power maul because i think they are cool. It was made out of a 40k Space Marine combat knife handle cut down, the eagle shape really looks neat.

I cut a few left arms and repositioned them so as to give a bit of variety. The rest of the detail was  painted on, like the knee pads and storm bolters. The Crux Terminatus was hard to do as i wanted it to look good but not have to take too long to do all twenty. I will eventually do a post soon with the finished Wolf Guard Land raiders.

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.
