Space Marines

Here’s some more miniature painting practice. It’s been many years since I painted a GW Space Marine, so I thought they would be good to play around with. Nothing fancy, I just wanted to see if I could do a decent job on them. I don’t play, only paint, so I think they’re supposed to be Reivers, but I messed up their knee decals!

It’s Warhammer 40k’s 30th birthday this year, so here’s a some old Marines I found in a box from X number of years ago for comparison. Remember the old Womble marines? Such a big difference in detail!

Guild Ball – Mason’s Guild

This is my second set of minis painted, getting a bit more practice after years of not painting minis. This is the Mason’s Guild from the Kickoff set, the season 3 version of Steamforged Games’ Guild Ball. I slightly regret giving them white tops, I think they’ve been better with light blue, but they look okay. The detail on the models themselves is a little lost in places, presumably from the moulding process, but they’re still nice sculpts. I’m working on the second team at the moment, the Brewers Guild. I’ll post them up whenever I get them finished.

Clubber King painted

So I finally got around to painting up my Shapeways printed model of Clubber King. I hadn’t painted a miniature in about 15 years, so I’m a bit out of practice, but I’m relatively pleased with how he turned out. Painting him also helped me point out a few sculpting issues, like how deep seams and cuts should be, and scale of details. So I’ve been keeping that in mind for some other sculpts I’ve been doing which hopefully I’ll be a be able to show soon.

Already a day behind, ‘cos I’ve got a cold and decided to just have a mess around. You could say he’s divided between his magic and his technology maybe??

Ooops, nearly forgot it was that INKTOBER time of the year again already! Let’s see how this month goes, only made it to the 23rd last year, so let’s try for better.

Here’s the link to Jake Parker’s website if you want to check out the list.

Some more sculpting practice in Blender 2.78. I started this for the Sculpt January challenge, but unfortunately this is the only one I managed to get so far.  I’ll hopefully get a few more done throughout the next few weeks.
