How to Paint Heresy Era Iron Hands – Part 1 (Legion Colours)

Hello and welcome. Today I will be demonstrating how to get the coal black armour finish for Pre-Heresy and Horus Heresy era Iron Hands.

You… More How to Paint Heresy Era Iron Hands – Part 1 (Legion Colours)

Summer Hobby Challenge: Ferrus Manus and Horus Lupercal Week Final Update

The end is nigh! Finally we’re at the last post. As I type, hoping that my finger doesn’t pop open and leak blood over my keyboard, I’m doubly pleased that I’ve reached the end of painting Horus. I’ve really enjoyed painting him, and the added bonus is that both Mike and I have a fully… More Summer Hobby Challenge: Ferrus Manus and Horus Lupercal Week Final Update

Summer Hobby Challenge: Ferrus Manus and Horus Lupercal Week 8 Update

I’ve done very little to Ferrus Manus this week, as my parents have been here to stay, but I think it’s the kind of very little that is very important. As you know from last week, the flesh and majority of the base is done. So this week, I got to start working on the… More Summer Hobby Challenge: Ferrus Manus and Horus Lupercal Week 8 Update

Custodes Contemptor Dreadnought Work in Progress

I have always liked the idea of the Adeptus Custodes, the mysterious protectors of the Emperor. I never believed that we would get models for them, let alone to awesome range of vehicles and upgrades that Forge World are putting out. I just had to get myself some to paint and game with, even without… More Custodes Contemptor Dreadnought Work in Progress
