It’s been a little while since I shared some of my recent work to the blog here, so here’s a little bit of an update on what’s been keeping me busy through the latter half of November and this first half of December!
First up is this Kroot hero from the awesome Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress game. This is an ongoing job where I’m painting the models from the set alongside my other commissions. I had a lot of fun painting this guy – I’ve always loved the Kroot anyway and this model is super characterful!
This is a miniature I’ve had my eye on for a while for my beloved Dark Angels. It’s the finecast version of the banner bearer that dates back to the mid to late 90s I think, possibly. However old it is, the sculpt really holds up nicely with an absolutely gorgeous banner that was a joy to paint. I placed him upon a piece of tall slate to help him stand out, especially considering he’s competing for attention against his Primaris bretheren now!! I had fun painting the chainsword – they definitely work better if you give them hazard stripes! 😀
Next up, I painted this little lot here for the Gloomspite Gitz, two Mangler Squigs (one as a Loonboss), a Dankhold Troggoth and no less than six Rockgut Troggoths! I’ve painted the Troggoths before but this is my first time with the new plastic Mangler Squig kit (my previous one being the Finecast one from about 7/8 years ago!) and it was great fun. The squigs these days seem a lot more tadpole shaped rather than space hopper though, I think I prefer the “Space Hopper with Teeth” designs.
