Apologies

Hey folks,

just thought I would apologise for the serious lack of updates, so near Xmas with no phone or electronic portable gadget has meant no real time to sit down and do much, I have however finished my latest batch of Orky goodness and will attempt to upload pics later tonight (using a friends iPad again so don’t expect good pic quality!), in the early new year I will be getting a new phone and can get back on this blog again fully.

thankyou for your patience and support bros/broettes.

More orkz!

Hey guys, just s small update right now, unfortunately my phone broke so post will be difficult for a while as I can’t post pictures…

but I’m using a friends iPad today and sort of stumbling around how to even use it! But as far as Averland Knights go, I was brave and continued with all 10 which still are not quite finished, and have now been sidelined for more commission orks, this batch has 9 loota’s and 3 war bikes. Will post pics a bit later as I’m currently meant to be cooking a roast for the whole family! Later bros/broettes

Averland Knights #2

Sorry guys, but todays update is somewhat rubbish,

image

Turns out trying to do 10 knights at once gives you nothing but a headache and a sore wrist! There was me thinking “oh well the majority if these guys are steel, which is easy to paint well! So I’ll batch paint them all!” And well, 10 horses alone was a royal bum ache! So far ive only done the horses basecoat and primary highlight, and the armors basecoat and wash… so im about 25% done.

Maybe tomorrow I’ll just try and finish 2 or 3 of them, not 10… unless im feeling REALLY brave, but right now, early night and netflix! Until tomorrow bros/broettes!

Averland Knights

Only a tiny little update today, this close to christmas means its getting more and more difficult to sit down and paint!

Anyway, finished another knight (yay!)

I cant get over how lovely these models are, their just a pure joy to make and paint, I decided to go with a gold trim, fantasy knightly look, im really happy with the result, tomorrow, I think I’ll crack on with the next five mantic basileans… until then, callaghan04

Finished Orkz

Well my first commission for this client was 10 Ork Boyz, ive finished them in 5 days, and thats with two days off to spend with my mrs! So personally im quite happy with the result. But enough yabbering, pictures!

Im extremely happy with this lot, this is the first time ive painted Orks since “assault on black reach” was released! And I painted Evil Sunz then, but these deathskulls have really found a soft spot in my heart I think, the green and blue mixture seems to go so well, and the ‘lootaz’ background allowed me to do some awesome camo patterns, and to add some imperial bits and bobs, Blood Angels shoulderpads with Deathskulls logo added on top is possibly my most favorite thing ever right now!

So, my client seems happy with the pictures, and when these boyz are collected I can start my next batch! I have no idea what these are yet so until then, I’ll be getting on with my empire Averland project, already started my 2nd knight, but that can wait until tomorrow now! Later bros and broettes.

More Orkz

Got my internet problem sorted, so im free to post now! Done my first conversion for my Deathskulls imperial hunters.

I loved making and painting this guy! The weapon is two standard space marine bolters chopped up and glued together with a space marine dagger glued under them, space marine rockets next to them and a space marine rocket backpack, aswel as the blood angels helmet and shoulderpad (with appropriate orky glyphs painted on top)

Im waiting to see if my client likes the conversion, and if he does I’ll be adding imperial parts to most orks, but I did finish another 2 standard orks too.

I didnt realize until after that hes painted EXACTLY like the loota, same camo trousers and blue top combo… maybe their related? Hmmmm…

And this guy rocking the urban camo trousers, little things that say ‘imperium’ without being imperial.

All in all im loving this commision so far! Time for a groupshot?

Until next time bros and broettes!
