TITH... I'm back-ish. Still need to pick up new brushes - I asked for some over Christmas, but alas, all I got was detail brushes. Hardly the kind of thing you can paint a small army of Unforgiven with - it'd take too long! I'll also need to make a paint run - there's some GW paints that are mandatory for me to pick up if I'm going to be doing any painting at all, if only to maintain consistent basing schemes across my Imperium models - but I'm researching and picking at the models I've already got. As a bit of a teaser for what I've been up to in the meantime...

The Apothecary in the middle on the weird base is a resin-printed guy off Thingiverse - until/unless we get a Primaris Biker Apothecary datasheet, he's counts-as, but it's fine. He's meant to ride with the Outriders, two of which are using Incursor helmets; the third is using a spare Eliminator helmet. Not my best build or paint work, but they'll certainly do - I had fun with them, even though two of the Outriders have very, very conspicuous cracks down the center of their bikes from where I couldn't quite get them to line up correctly. It's fine, though. I'll be working on the rest of Indomitus (I know I'm late on this) whenever I get sufficient brush to do it; the Novokh Dynasty and the Dark Angels alike will be joining the grand list of armies I own whenever I get around to it.

Managed to get my first FT Termy Hero painted up after a while off the wagon. Really made me hope beyond hope for a new Terminator kit soon, or maybe even some sort of Primaris version that isn't Gravis. Love these sculpts.

TITHI fired up my airbrush setup for the first time. Managed to do a quick test paint on the first model for my Emperor's Spears....

 

And then I realized I need to get some plumbers tape so the compressor doesn't leak constantly :lol:

Managed to get two more Tearers done from my Terminator squad. Had The Hunger audiobook on whilst painting. The screams of Harahel ripping through Genestealers really helped with motivation haha!

TITH I received some serious reinforcements for my Minotaurs, in shape of the Interdiction Force and the Vanguard Start Collecting box. This pretty much completes my Phobos Company - less some characters that will need converting, like a Phobos Chaplain, Apothecary, Techmarine & maybe an Ancient.

I managed to find a Primaris Techmarine online last week and TITH it turned up. It’s getting seconded to the deathwatch once I’ve built the little beauty.

Finished my Dark Vengeance box. Converted the bikes to Black Knights. This is my first army after almost a 20 year hiatus, so I’m feeling right proud of myself. 750 points took me 3.5 months to build and paint. I have almost 2,500 more in the pile of shame now. I’m fully back into this and loving it. Hope to play a lot more in 2021. 9th edition looks super fun.

Today I finished the book False Gods and already started Galaxy in Flames. Hope to finish it by Friday, so I can start painting my Primaris Intercessors during the weekend.

Reading the lore is pushing me to finish my first unit of Primaris Intercessors. :)

Yesterday in the hobby I attempted to prime an AT Warlord Titan; I ran out of my normal supply of primer but I found an old bottle which I tried to use. After 2 hours of swearing at my airbrush for constantly clogging I gave up.

bigtrouble: Man they look amazing! Very cool buddy! I've lost count of how many times I had to paint this boxed set and this brings back some great memories! Such a nice backbone to a collection!

And now for something completely different: Finished up a big bunch of 'crons I've been neglecting for far too long.

 

Nightbringer and Friends

 

Had Nightbringer and those six Destroyers sat around since roughly June last year. I found the new Warriors are so utterly hateful to assemble, I only had the patience to build the six I'd need to bolster each phalanx up to 15 bots; but you can never have too many scarabs. Still, probably one of the biggest painting projects I've tackled in a single batch.

TiTHI finished taking photos of my Indomitus Chaplain, with a bit of help from the Darren Latham face tutorial. Very pleased with the result.

I also used a magnifying headset thingy to get a better view of the model while painting. I found it a lot easier to see what I'm doing. Reading glasses are nice, but this comes with a small light as well. I just wish it was more comfortable to wear.

 

Let me know what you think of the model and aspects I could improve.

TITH I managed to find a box of inceptors after trawling through about 50 online shops and I also found a box of terminators for £15 on FB marketplace brand new in the box so snapped them up. I think my Deathwatch has enough miniatures now.

TITH managed to finish up another Terminator. Brother Feurran, the series 2 hero with the assault cannon, but with a simple arm swap to make him more fitting of a Flesh Tearer. Sorry if I'm spamming the thread a little with these Terminators, just the sergeant left! I also managed to prime five Incursors and the Chaplain from Indomitus for my Death Company when I get around to them.

Do not apologise, I love seeing your work. It's called today in the hobby for a reason. 

 

I don't know about you, but I find seeing others progress highly motivating, along with posting my own.

Yeah, don’t apologise for those guys, they’re awesome!

I saw in your thread in the BA forum that you’re using a base of Gal Vorbak red - what are you shading the Gal Vorbak with? Nuln Oil?

Edit to add what I’ve done today in the hobby

TITH I took delivery of a squad of Contekar Terminators from FW, and got some magnets and movement trays from Mini Mag Tray. So this afternoon I’m going to dig my hot glue gun out of the garage and start sticking magnets to bases.

Thanks! I use Nuln Oil/Black Templar in a about a 60/40 split. I find Nuln Oil doesn't quite shade the dark red enough.
