Boom! Another collection of amazing posts from fellow Hobby Bloggers hits your news feed. Take a moment (or more) and check out what these guys are doing, be inspired, and learn a few tips along the way.
Origin of the Deathwatch
Having been involved with Games Workshop for many years, Gav Thorpe recently shared his story on the genesis of Deathwatch and why Space Marines were included in the Inquisitor 54mm scale range.
Sylvaneth Treelord Ancient
I’m claiming it now, if GW puts out one of the Christmas box sets for the Sylvaneth, I am finally giving in. In the meantime, I’ve really enjoyed Turkadactyl’s tree army grow, this week with his finished Treelord Ancient.
I’m not the only one making muddy bases this week as James Wappel shows how he makes realistic mud bases using MIG powders. It’s great to see the different colors and approach he takes to hint at mud and splatter, without going overboard.
Painting a Golden Deamon Winner
In part II of the series, Rory shares Kirsten’s thoughts and steps on painting the Wych half of her dual. It’s awesome to see why she chose certain colors. Awesome tip from her post: use a soft, 4B pencil for marking freehand.
Update: Rory has added part III where she paints up the Seraphim.
Creepiest Army on Parade Ever
I’m pretty sure I’ve covered a few of Wilhelm’s creepy-awesome army build, but here he has outdone himself with his Army on Display board. Not only are there a few odd heads into the display, but it has three levels of monsters in the dark.
Mongo the Beast
Dave Taylor is a fantastic artist and this model, Mongo from Dark Age is a testament to his skills. Between the fantastic warm skin tones and the cool concrete blocks, it’s a great composition and great weathering.
