Imperial Navy: Thunderbolt Heavy Fighter

To finish my Tallarn army, I painted more air support: a Thunderbolt Heavy Fighter.

As with my other flyers, the colour scheme is that of a Messerschmitt Bf-109 fighter plane. I just like the stong conrast. I started to paint this flyer at least two years ago but lost interest because the model was heavily warped. Last weak, I fixed this issue with my hairdryer and a lot of patience.

The weapon loadout does not seem possible anymore. Fortunally, the rockets are magnetized, should anyone be annoyed.

Acastus Knight Porphyrion - Done!

And without further ado, here comes the finished Acastus Knight Porphyrion.

I painted the whole thing with regular brushes and acrylic paints. On top followed GW washes, oil washes and pigments. I'm relieved to see it finally done. I don't need to paint such a large model again. Kudos to everyone who approaches titans on this scale.

Now I can finally paint something else again!

Acastus Knight Porphyrion - WIP II

Painting the Knight takes an unexpectedly long time. It's a relativly large model and in terms of points value I am basically painting half an army.

There were also some bumps, or better to say "happy accidents", on the way...

Acastus Knight Porphyrion - WIP

Here are some WIP pictures of my latest project: 


The Porphyrion Knight comes without a base from Forgeworld. Therefore, I had one printed and I am very satisfied with the result. The diameter is 20 cm and I really like the supports underneath.

[Adeptus Titanicus] Questoris Knight Banner - House Coldshroud

After three years, I finally finished my Knight Household with this Questoris Knight Banner.

All in all, this should be around 1.200 points worth of Knights from House Coldshroud.

[Tallarn Desert Raiders] Heavy Bolter Teams

It took some time, but I finished my last Heavy Support Weapon Teams for my Tallarn Desert Raiders - 3 Heavy Bolter Teams:

With them the infantry/cavalry part of the army looks like this:

When I'm through with the rest of the infantry, I'll do a big army shot with all the vehicles. This is one of my hobby goals for this year.

[Tallarn Desert Raiders] Just another Infantry Squad

I've painted another ten men Tallarn Infantry Squad! 

Here are some work in progress pictures:

Now it is time for something different before it gets too boring.

[Tallarn Desert Raiders] Heavy Support Teams

About ten years ago, I painted my first Tallarn Heavy Weapon Models. At that time, I didn't get full squads of Rocket Launchers and Autocannons together. That's why I painted up these models over the last few days: 
And here are the now completed Rocket Launcher and Autocannon squads:

[Tallarn Desert Raiders] Reinforcements have arrived

I decided to finally finish my Tallarn Desert Raiders army. So, I painted ten random Tallarn infantrymen from my pile of shame. These are the first Tallarn I have painted for about four years! There are more to come...

[Retro] Space Ork Kill Team Board - Finished!

I finished the Kill Team board a few days ago, finally. We have used it in a few games already. It looks great and works well. The terrain is fully versatile, so the games should not become too dull.

Classic Metal Termagants

I painted some classic Termagants for a Hivefleet Kill Team. The colour scheme was heavily inspired by the old codex images. Ah yes, the good old times...

[Retro] Space Ork Kill Team Board - Promethium Tank

This piece of terrain is not my best work, but it should work well on the gaming board nevertheless.

Retro-Tan: Eldar Ranger Squad

I don't know where this might lead to in the future, but I just wanted to paint some old-school Eldar miniatures. So, I picked up some old Eldar Rangers and painted them up in the Biel-Tan colour scheme.

[Retro] Space Ork Kill Team Board - Looted Tank

Our next Kill Team tournament is coming up around Easter. Then the Ork Kill Team Bard will be used again. I haven't implemented two ideas for more terrain yet - one of them is a looted tank.

So I bought an old Leman Russ Demolisher and thought about how to convert it. Since I still don't have any Ork Bitz, it wasn't that easy. 

I like the chunky turret of the Battle Wagon, which is used for many conversions. So I looked around for something comparable. I found a worthy replacement in the base of the Aegis Defense Line cannon. I added only a few more parts and kept it simple. 

The painting of the looted tank went relatively quickly. Because I didn't have to work carefully and cleanly...
