Still going

Well, as you can see I'm still going, the army's getting a lot bigger. Although I'm taking a break for a week or so as I'm about to move house and am doing an event for charity at the weekend, Trailwalker, I'd really appreciate it if you could take the time to have a look at the page and the actual event page link at the left hand side of my fundraising page.

Random point!! Just seen the trailer for Kickass 2, looks awesome :D

So yeah, I've finished the 2nd Contemptor and the Land Raider for the Rampagers, really enjoyed doing these and very happy with how they came together. (might be adding a bit more blue to the Land Raider at some point)

I've also finished the 2nd Tactical Squad, they were a bit of a slog initially but as I started getting through them I really got motivated the get them done.

Really pleased with the Sergeant for these guys, I think I got the pose right for the head, seems to fit quite well with the WE theme.

He also carries Melta Bombs, Fortunately Forge World do smaller versions in their MkIV CCW kit it's a cracking kit, I've pretty much used all of it in some form or another, either chopping the head off of a mace to add a chainaxe head or just the arms for more options and poses on the marines. There are also some excellent power fists and lightning claws that I'm sure I'll use in future armies.

I also won a competition this week over at the The Goldfish of Justice, so am really chuffed about that. I'll always try and support these guys as commission painting is something I do a fair bit of and is more than likely something I'll be picking up more of when I leave my current job, I understand how much of a slog it can be at times.
Anyway, I think that's enough of a ramble for this week, expect the next update to feature a large tank, maybe some destroyers and potentially a Praetor, not got a lot left to do for this army :D


  1. Those really turned out looking fantastic. Great work, man!

  2. Hey James, just found your blog through Tale of Painters. I've been a long time follower of your marines. Back when the GW forums were still online I remember asking you for your recipe for the Ultramarines you painted. Ever since, I've been enjoying your painting style. Mine has impreoved somewhat, too, since then. :) Love your WE army, they look freaking fabulous. I definitely need to come here more often.
