Black Templar Display Board WIP

Hi all! Long time no see! Summer is winding down, so naturally I'm racing to finish more than necessary.  With both Armies on Parade and Shorehammer coming up, I wanted to create a display board. Earlier this year, I completed a display board in a three day period for my friend. I did not hit that goal this time.

Black Templar Crusader Squad Finished

Hi All - The Summer Painting Challenge Continues.

I'm at the point where I'm trying not to say "I'm running out of things to paint" - Except that I am running out of 'priority' things to paint. I'm still got plenty of miniatures that need paint, but the vast majority are simply bringing tabletop quality models up to my 'best' quality models with highlight and washes. Many of these were painted when I was in my teens or college years, when It was literally spraypaint black, paint brown boots, metal gun, blue-grey armor for all my guard models. I also just finished practicing 'upgrading' one of these old Arcadian 4th (My custom guard regiment) models, and he doesn't look to shabby.

Anywho, here's the challenge update.

To finish...

  • Black Templar Phobus Armor LT (1 model - received and built)
  • Two Squads of Ten Vostroyan Guard including heavy weapon bases.
  • Four man command squad (Flamer, Medic, Comms and Grenade Launcher)
  • Three Vostroyan Snipers (just picked one up - now I have a special weapons squad!)
  • Eleven Black Templar Crusaders
  • Black Templar Apothecary
  • 2 Alpha Legion Obliterators
  • Alpha Legion Master of Possession
  • Alpha Legion Sorcerer 
  • Five Plague Ogryns (or Aberrants) 
Finished - 83 miniatures
Unfinished - 30ish

At this rate I'll have hit 100 by the end of July IF I can get started on these damn Vostroyans. Still trying to decide if I want to do the constrast paint on them for purple (but I'm unsure if it will match my other paint style) or just my normal purple, wash and highlight on the cloth.

Oh, and did I mention I'm looking at getting a custom platoon from Anvil Industries to match the Vostroyans and add some heft without breaking the bank too bad? Yea....gonna have to wait on that.

Blockade out.

The Bazaar 2019

Every August Fantasy Books and Games has their annual Bazaar where we can bring in items and they will sell them in a consignment like transaction. The catch is, instead of getting a cut they give you store credit.  It is a cool deal and you can find some real bargains.  Here is what I got this year.

THe Hobby Butterfly Strikes Again

With every intention to paint up some acolytes this weekend, I ended up painting up a new warband for the new Warcry game.  I knew when the GW previewed the Corvus Cabal that if the game looks even remotely fun I would be getting these models.  After watching a few battle reports I was hooked.

DJ Clamavus

I thought I would get back to my Genestealer Cult and decided to paint my Clamavus model.

Moar Shorehammer talk.

Last time I talked about Shorehammer, I was on the fence on which army I wanted  take. Since then, I decided to go with the Genestealer Cult (GSC). They are a different type army and my friend has thrown the gauntlet down for our grudge match and he want to face the GSC.

After the Fulgurites were finished I decided to paint a model a good friend gave to me.  The great Marbo.

Fulgurite Electro-Priests

A week ago I had a post all planned out to show off two of my Fulgurite Electro-priests but I was having trouble with my phone and it didn't want to create a post.  So here we are a week later and I am working on my PC and I have all five of the priests ready for action.

Summer Painting Progress Continues! Alpha Legion & Renegades

I'm continuing to work on my summer painting challenge. Today I finished a big chunk of the alpha legion remnants and the plague ogryns / remaining aberrants. I keep having this problem of adding models to the painting que that aren't on the actual to be painted list (like the aberrants), meaning that while my painted numbers go up, my unpainted numbers only decrease slowly.

Orks and Contrast

On my day off I thought I would work on some Orks and continue to work with the contrast paints.  This time I am painting some Orks.

Contrast Paints

With all of the excitement over the Blues win I did not have a lot of time to hobby this weekend.  I did though get some time using the new contrast paints and I like everyone else on the internet will give my two cents on my opinion of the new paints.

Atalan Jackals and Wolfquad

While painting my Sisters of Battle I took some time to finish up my Atalan Jackals and a Wolfquad.  If you remember I had just the base on one Jackal and most of a second one.  The Wolfquad has quite a bit of work left.

Kitbashed Crusader Squad Assembled

I finished assembling my 3rd troop choice for my Black Templars army today - A kitbashed squad of Black Templar Crusaders. Take a look.

Finished Squad of Sisters

After finishing one Sister of battle I felt like I needed to finish one small squad.  I had some time on Saturday and I got to work.  This will be picture heavy.

Friday, June 7, 2019

Sister of Battle

I had some time to paint one of the Sisters of Battle metal models.  The painting went really quick and while it is not my best painted model I think it is a good rank and file model.

Weekend work

While the Blues have had a hard time getting things finished, I did not.  Over the weekend I was able to finish painting a few models.

Friday, May 31, 2019


Last night I thought I would spend some time painting the cool Kelermorph model I just primed.  from a distance the model looked fine but when I started to work on the details I noticed something wrong: my primer fused up.

Thursday, May 30, 2019

Kastelan Robot

In all the commotion I forgot to post pictures of a model I actually finished painting.  I while back I finished my fourth Kastelan Robot.

More building

With the holiday, the Blues in the Stanley Cup Finals, trying to get a game in, and being sick I didn't have a lot of time to work on hobby stuff. I did get some building done though.  Again it is a bit all over the place but what else is new

Darrakar Guardian of Souls

Last night, I had some time to add the finishing touches to Darrakar.  Like most Nighthaunt,  painting him went pretty quick.

What's on my table:

This weekend, the hobby butterfly hit again. I started a few projects but finished none of them. Lets take a look.

Tau ethereal

As I talked about before, I completed work on a Tau Ethereal after finishing the Ghostkeel.  Like the Ghostkeel, I have had this model for a while and I am just now getting around to it.

Monday, May 13, 2019

Tau Ghostkeel

This Weekend, I felt I needed a change.  It has been Orks and Genestealer Cult for a while so I broke down and brought out my Ghostkeel to paint.

GSC impressions

I finally got a chance to play the new Genestealer Cult.  They played well and I think with a little practice they could be a force to reckoned with.  While I might be a bit late, here are a few first impressions.

Some Genestealer Cult models Nearing Completion

I haven't had a lot of hobby time this past few weeks.  I did get time enough to finish a jackal though.  I have also started on several other Jackals and Genestealer Cult units.

Nighthaunt Chainrasps

I had a busy weekend so I didn't get much finished.  I was able to finish the Chainrasps though as well as do some detail work on a Glaivewraith Stalker.

On My Table 4/10/18

I haven't done one of these in a long time. With Adepticon, life and a new Switch taking a lot of my free time I have not had a lot of time to work on stuff.  I finally have stuff I am working on. Let's take a look.

Tuesday, April 9, 2019


As usual, I have fluttered over to another project before finishing the one I started.  This time I decided to paint up some Chainrasps.

Atalan Jackal

I finally finished my last Jackal this weekend.  I still have the wolfquad to paint but that is an addon and almost a separate group.  This gives me a finished squad of four which can be legally fielded.

Friday, April 5, 2019

Looking ahead

With Adepticon in the books, Shorehammer just opened registration.  I am planning to play in the Age of Sigmar(AoS) tournament as well as the 40k Highlander.  This opens the question: what armies am I going to bring?

Sister test model

If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter, or in the TWL text group you have already seen my test model for the sisters of battle.  It is one of the new Geminea sisters for Celestine that was released a while ago. With her done, I have a scheme that I can use when the new sisters come out.  My good friend has donated a squad to help get me started, I hope he doesn't regret it.

Dakka Dakka Mooooo!

Whew! What a weekend!  Adepticon 2019 is in the books and it was a hoot! I got to play some games,  see some "famous" people, and got to see a bunch of vendors.  I had a great time and I will tell you all about it.
