Finally Off The Table

So after the block painting comes the ink.

I may yet go back and fill in the skull eye sockets with black paint, but basically it is finished.

This is a great sculpt, maybe a bit smaller than I was expecting, but I really like the quality of Wargame Exclusive models. I must order some more!

Forge World Dread

This is another model that has been in the Loft Full Of lead for ages, when I say ages, I mean years and years. I think this was the first Contemptor Class Dreadnought released by Forge World.

I have magnetized the weapon mounts so there is plenty of scope for weapon combinations using the three I have and possibly adding more in the future.

I really like the model, but having it for years, I was not sure how to paint it, Blood Angels red or perhaps a gun metal and silver finish. I already have four Blood Angels Dreadnoughts so did not really need another. So I went down the metallic route as a Dreadnought for the Grey Knights.

Grey Knights Proxy

I ordered a few models from Wargame Exclusive a couple of weeks ago after spending a week or so drooling over the eye candy on their website. They have now arrived and I have been distracted from the current project.

There are several models I like the look of on their website, one of which was an alternative Space Marine character that I fancied using as a Grey Knights model.

The casting is just fantastic with only a little cleanup worked required. There are several very small bits, I thought I lost one bit when I was washing it, but they all seem to be there. I am not sure where some of the very small bits go, I may leave some off.
When he is done, he should look like this…

Wargame Exclusive are base in the Ukraine with an expanding range of really nice models. Shipping is reasonable at a flat €4 rate across Europe.

Getting Sidetracked

Servo Skulls seem to be quite rare, not a lot of models come with them and eBay prices are a bit excessive. So I thought I would have a go at making some. I have a Silly Gum mould of a couple of skulls and a good supply of green stuff skulls. I added some bits in the eyes and mouths. The real test will be to see what they look like when painted.

I also needed to add a Multi-Melta to my Land Raider and due to lack of spares of that particular weapon, I had to make one. I added one of the Servo Skulls to the weapon, looks okay for a first attempt.
