Latest from the workbench! My Rhino that I’ve finally gotten around to painting up, and my re-painted Reliquae. After learning how to do flesh tones properly, I could let my peasants look so… sick and filthy.
Latest pics from the workdesk, featuring my first foray into the Island of Blood, and my Black Templars banner bearer!
Catching up on finishing old projects is probably what’s next, and then slogging through another 40 Skaven.
I’m a sucker for any story like this.
Just some shitty pics of my recent batch of Hive Fleet Volturnus Tyranids, in the paint scheme I think is working out quite well for them.
Next up on the chopping block; Beastmen, Island of Blood, and Black Templars!
Some pics of another game I had a while back, hereafter reffered to the Spectacular Fucking Failure of the Penticus Crusade. I got some of the more heroic shots here, but you can imagine the results of parking 2 squads of crusaders in the open, across from an Eldar gunline.
It wasn’t pretty.
My first Tyranid! I got a bunch of these little guys, plus some Warriors, for $30 and some Warriors of Chaos bitz. Totally worth it.
Goddamn it, papercraft is hard…
Hey, while I’m on the theme of red and silver Chaos stuff… Here’s a Chaos Lord of the Word Bearers! He’s a pretty cool guy; he kills lots of aliens and doesn’t afraid of anything.
The starter piece for what, with the new Dark Vengeance boxed set, will hopefully become a burgeoning, healthy, Word Bearers Chaos Legion.
So, just for practicing weathering techniques and working with tanks, I bought this little 1/72 scale German Pz.Kpfw III from the local hobby shop for 20 bucks, put it together, and painted it up like a Black Templars tank. Looks pretty good, though there’s some small things I’d want to change when I do another actual Warhammer 40k tank.
So you have the Materium, all of time and space we’re familiar with, and then the warp/chaos/immaterium.
Chaos is supposed to be beyond good and evil. A neutral and chaotic maelstrom of powerful energy and emotion. It’s also supposed to be a mirror forallof the emotion in the real universe.
Actually, this raises a few interesting points. What I’ve always understood about the Warp is that, yeah, it’s pretty hellish, but it more or less reflects the emotional and spiritual state of the material world. Of course, the material world has been more or less a complete shithole for the last 10,000 years, if not longer, and the entities of the warp reflect that; That’s why Khorne is the most powerful god. One could argue that Slaneesh and Tzeentch aren’t completely “hellish” and demonic, strictly speaking, but from an artistic standpoint, the scenes of warp hell and hellish demons resonates more with the audience. If you go into the books a bit, you’ll see that there are quite a few situations that reflect the other side of the warp; in the second Horus Heresy book, Horus spends some time in the warp being corrupted, and the places he visits aren’t exactly all fire and brimstone.
Anyways, rant over, I hope this shedded some light on the situation.
