In The Works

Just a quick show of my current WIP, the Chaplain in Terminator Armour.

I’m going to a hobby crafty shop and buying some Micron pens, since they’ve been recommended to me for fine details and I REALLY want to decorate those scrolls and seals all over him. Then he just needs a base and he’s all done. Pretty, right?

I’ve also started on my test model for the Order of the Merciful Tear, and here she is… obviously not finished, but it’s better than a poke in the eye. Half experimenting with the build up of colours to get the bone armour I want, working from the stuff I used to paint the bones on the Chaplain above.

And I’ve had another delivery from ebay, bits and pieces that I’m acquiring in no particular order for my Sisters, simply because I like the model and wanted it.

I’m planning on sculpting a banner for her that winds around the pole like a pennant type thing, I’ve seen it done before. The Lexmechanic is a purchase for the retinue of my Inquisitor who hasn’t materialised yet, but I know the models I want and things, and since GW doesn’t stock them individually anymore, I’m having to hunt around a little!

My dad has gotten into the hobby recently, and joined my and my brother. He’s starting a small force of Daemon Hunters, and has one painted Knight already, and a few other models in parts. Just goes to show, the hobby spans all ages and skills and it really brings everyone together who you wouldn’t usually have thought would be interested in the game.

No improvement on the chariot. Might paint the lions soon.
