Warhammer 40k – Stormraven Base

Had a break from the hobby this weekend, so the wife and I could have a long weekend to celebrate our first year of marriage :D, and much enjoyment was had by the pair of us.

With the jetbike finished I’m now onto the next job, which is the base for a Stormraven. The client is looking for something with that little bit extra, nothing too fancy, just an obliterated nid. So with that in mind I scavenged through my bits box and found a few of my old hivefleet, Irb-Nri, and felt that the Gargoyle would be the best fit for the job. Here’s what I’ve got so far:

Leman Russ and Korvydave finished!

After a long weekend in Sweden (’twas awesome) it’s back to the painting and since being back in sunny Scotland (it is actually sunny for once :/) I have now completed the Russ and Korvydave. Here they are;

The russ has not yet been named, so I’ve left the forward red sections unadorned so this can be added at a later date if necessary.

Leman Russ and Korvydave Progress…

Well I may have got distracted by a certain Korvydae figure, now re-named Korvydave in honor of the owner, and I have to say he is just lovely. As always from Forge World character figures there is so much history and detail on the figure. And the face, oh the face, such a crisp casting gives such a great area to paint. Never before have I had so much fun painting a face (although he always reminds me of Robocop without the helmet :-/

The russ is now at the stage of getting the details added, with the main hull finished off. And here it is;

More Pathfinders & Dave’s Awesome Raven Guard!

Decided to treat myself over the long weekend and paint the next lot of Pathfinders for my slow building army.

They were as much as a pleasure to paint as the last lot, with the interesting addition of a face ;). I’ve not had much experience with some of the more exotic alien skin, only really having done human skin before. I’m overall happy with the result but may go back and add some kind of stippled pattern or markings of some kind, just to make it a little more alien.

Also over the last few months I’ve been giving a mate a helping hand getting back into painting and wanted to show off the results and his progress so far. Luckily he went for Raven Guard, which meant a colour scheme that wouldn’t be too overwhelming. They still have a few finishes touches to be added but what he has so far looks pretty damn good…

Whats Next?

I now have a couple of jobs in the pipeline along with the Death Korp. First up is some seriously heavy firepower:

And after all of that I have something smaller to tackle in the form of Raven Guard Shadow Captain Korvydae:
