Pulp City - Finished Supremes

A few pic's of my finished Pulp City Supremes. Really enjoyed painting these, was really nice to paint a stand-alone mini which isn't part of an army.

Iron Train - I tried of lots new techniques on this model. Although he is a little on the dark side, I'm really happy with the weathering on it base and I feel like I've finally nailed an easy why to paint brass which in the past I've struggled with.
To paint the brass, I painted Dwarven Brass then washed over it with Turquoise Hawk and dry brushed Dwarven Brass over the top.

Androdia - Nice and easy one to paint, just Mithril Silver, with washes over the top.

It's a hard miniature to photograph, so here a pic of the back

Orc & Goblins Sunday Surprise!

Sitting in my Inbox this morning was an email from Games-Workshop (see below). It's very cryptic about new Orc & Goblin releases in May. I have a feeling it will be a wave miniatures and not an Army Book.

If it is new mini's, I have got no idea what they could be!

"More Orcs & Goblins coming in May

Orcs & Goblins are the scourge of the Warhammer world, an unending tide of ferocious raiders. For every greenskin Waaagh! defeated on the field of battle, another arises to trample a swathe of destruction across the land. Orcs and Goblins live to fight!

Orcs & Goblins are one of the most popular Warhammer armies and it's not difficult to see why: they can field warriors of all shapes and sizes from tiny Snotlings to Giants, and every shape of Orc and Squig in-between. They have access to a bizarre array of war machines and mounts, and some of the most entertaining special rules of any Warhammer army. And thanks to their inclusion in the great-value Battle for Skull Pass set, are often the first army a hobbyist collects.

So this May we're celebrating the Orcs & Goblins in all their choppa-wielding glory. We're under orders from the Big Boss to keep quiet about exactly what's going on so be sure to check out in April when all will be revealed and pick up May's issue of White Dwarf for an in-depth look at all things green."

Space Hulk Update - Part 3

Another update on my Space Hulk stuff. I've painted a 2nd squad of Terminators and 8 Genstealers.

Which leaves me with only 8 Genstealer, 1 Space Marine with power claws, 1 Librarian, 1 Broodload and the random bits like the marine on the throne. Almost done!

And the Genstealers, I have only taken pictures of 3 of them, because I couldn't remember which ones I already had done. Also I have re-paint all there bases, so they look more weathered.

Matty's first blog post - Mattys WIP plup city minatures

Hi, Im Matty , Andraths brother . This is to be my first of hopefully many posts on his blog .
I start collecting warhammer and warhammer 40k around the same time as Andrath, my armies are mainly space marines and a very WIP (work in progress) dark elf army of which re-uses and update some old classic models from when I started collecting but that's for another post, today its all about the plup city fever that I have been court up in and my new WIP plup city miniatures I had bought to battle against Andrath.

sometimes when i make up my models I can be a bit lazy with my basing of the models but this time I thought I'd go to town on them as I've only got a few superheros and super villains to do I'll let you be the judge if they have work or not but I'm happy with them, and can not wait to get them paint up.
