A bit of red


Its been a while! I've been a bit rubbish at keeping up with the posting in July. Thats not to say that I haven't been busy. As its been the build up to the summer holidays its been a bit of a hectic time both at home and at work. 

On the painting side, its been a throw back to the rogue trader days with a chainsword wielding marine.

I found some images on the inter web and decided to go with a Blood Angels scheme

The inspiration image

Another image showing an alternate paint scheme
I still own this brochure!!

 And here is my effort, I had to paint strip before painting, overall the colour is a bit darker and deeper than the RT painting.

I like his goggles!

Heres how he looks from all sides:

And turn
 Finally here he is with a few of his mates

Its exciting times too, closing in on the wolf time. With the new storm claw release and impending codex/new miniatures its time to save up :D

Till next time


  1. Yay for RT era goodies! That's a nice red :)

    1. Thanks Zab, I like the colour that the glaze produces on the red. and I've got a few more RT guys to work on

  2. Nice! I always love seeing old school minis see the light of day again - you've done a fantastic job on it as well!

    1. Thanks Mord. I think the RT guys have a lot of character :D
