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.
