Plague Marine Test

Painted up a test model for the 40+ plague marines I have.

I'm looking to do these like my Orks and Marines, and paint them in the style of the "red period".

Needless to say, this isn't quite it.

It's too gritty, too dark, not clean enough. Weird I know to be talking of Nurgle and say it needs to be clean, but considering the painting styles of 1990-1997, yea, it was important. Bright clean color is what I need. I'll try again.

RT Assassin and Mega Armour

Rogue Trader assassin.

I've loved this model since my first look through the 2nd edition rule book.

And my second suit of mega armor painted up.

Rogue Trader Marine Update

And my RT marines.

Here is an overview of what I have completed so far.

Beakie Librarian

7 of 8 Sternguard

A full Tactical Squad

Rogue Trader Ork Update

First up is my 2nd edition Bad Moon Dread. Turns out, I never finished this guy, so in addition to adding the necessary Bad Moon-iness, I was able to finish it up once and for all.

Idea for the black flames came from a piece of art in an ancient White Dwarf.

Next are 2 Ork Raiders from long, long ago.

These were a joy to paint up, nice and easy with simple blending and a limited color palette.

Ork Fighta-Bomma

I started this scratch build about 2 years ago and lost direction on it, which is why it sat. I recently pulled it out and started work in ernest.

Here is where I've gotten to over the past few days.

Pilot is from the Ork Trukk kit, turret is from the Stompa, and the rest in plasticard, witht he main body being formed around tape spools.
