Chaos cultist test model

This model was a test model I quickly painted to test a colour scheme for a Necromunda Chaos Cultist squad. This model is one of the new plastic cultists from the Dark Vengeance box set. I speed painted it, only doing quick washes and few highlights. I have decided to discard this colour scheme, but I thought I would post up the model regardless.

Showcase: Trollbloods Madrak Ironhide World Ender

I've finished painting this commission for the Madrak Ironhide World Ender model for the Trolbloods faction from Hordes/Warmachine. I tried some new techniques for painting the skin and tartan on this model. I enhanced the base by increasing the height of the model using cork and adding detail in the final basing.

Showcase: Painted shipping containers

I've finished the painting of the first five shipping containers. In the first parts of this series I showed how to build shipping containers, how to paint shipping containers, and how to airbrush graffiti onto the models. In this post I will show the first five completed models. I will show some pictures with models for scale. I will also show how they all nicely fit into a box for transportation and storage.

Tutorial: Painting a shipping container

A step-by-step guide to how I quickly painted my shipping containers. I used the same basic formula to paint all of the containers, only changing the base colour. This tutorial will show you how to quickly paint your shipping containers to a tabletop standard. To see how to build shipping containers, check out my post on building shipping containers. Also, please vote on my poll on the left for what you would like to see on this blog.

Painted V-1 flying bomb from Flames of War Open Fire

And now for something completely different; a foray into the world of 15mm warfare. There is a local group playing weekly Flames of War games. After checking out a game I decided to take the plunge and purchase Battlefront's excellent new Open Fire starter set. This model is a V-1 flying "buzz bomb". It is a terrain piece from the starter set.

Tutorial: Airbrushing graffiti in 40k

Today I experimented with airbrushing graffiti onto one of my shipping containers. I used a series of stencils I made to quickly do this. In this tutorial I will show some pictures of how to quickly achieve this effect. To see how to build the shipping containers check out my tutorial on building shipping containers.

Tutorial: Building shipping containers

In this tutorial I will show you how I built 28mm scale shipping containers from basic materials. In this part I will show the materials you need and the steps for construction. In the next section I will show step-by-step how I painted the models. With this tutorial I will show the steps to build one shipping container. I would recommend building more than one at a time as it is much more time efficient. You can modify the designs to create new combinations of shipping containers with open doors and things. I would estimate that each shipping container takes a little under an hour to completely build and assemble.

Scratch built shipping container

I finished painting this shipping container test model. I am building a set of modular storage containers as an easy to store set of terrain for modern and sci-fi games. The container is 5 cm high (2 inches), 5 cm wide and 12 cm long (5 inches). I have another 11 of these in progress. In a later post I will make a tutorial showing how to build these and then a tutorial on painting them. The wonderful sheet metal texture comes from a large sheet of corrugated card I found at an art store. It is great stuff to work with and (in my opinion) looks perfect at this scale.
