Weekly Progress Report 30/05/16

Hi all. Another week down! Let's see what we have been up to;

Castiel Druas is and has been very busy with the group's Solar Auxilia cohort. He is currently painting all silver work on the vehicles after Kaelo has done the gold stage. 

King Fluff has been desperately trying to squeeze in time to get any hobby done at all this week. He has completed a new character for his Mechanicum along with the rest of his Thallaxi unit and a second Domitar. The army is now pushing 3500pts.

Tylar Fasolt is frantically putting together more plastic men, this time another 5 Melta marines and another tactical squad. Plus he is working on a repose for his Master of Ordinance which we will see soon. 

Kaelo Rylanus has been adding some speed to his Raven Guard in the form of a Javelin and some Skyhunters. These should be finished soon and will be shown in the next few weeks. He has also finished 20 tactical marines and 5 Mor Deythan except for eyes. He is waiting for the new GW technical paints...

Darien completed painting his first dreadclaw. Then For a break from painting started assembling some bits. He completed his first leviathan and a master of signal for his SoH first company.

Drake stuck a rocket up his bum and lit it. He has finished off more projects this week and today he even got back to Bone Garland!! An update will be shown in the week. Below is a few pics of Bone Garland's head pre and post oil. Come back in the week to see what it ends up looking like, and guide. 

Lady Atia and Aveinus have been busy with life and have not had much hobby time this week. 

What about you guys?

Drake Seta


  1. Gave in and ordered myself a Xiphon despite the current state of confusion for Forgeworld fliers. Just need to hurry up and decide which Legion it's going to join, the Rout or the Fists.

  2. The oil trick always mystifies me, because it looks so gross when it goes on, but Drake always shows a picture of it looking brilliant shortly afterwards.

  3. Looks like it has been a great week for the bunnies!
    I've been busy, but I have spent whatever spare time on that beautiful event-only termie praetor (thanks again, Kaelo). Hopefully I can do it justice!

    1. No worries. Shame couldn't help more of our readers though :(

  4. Nice work!!!
    Wishing I had the time but alas. Exams. This summer though (or whenever the vote to leave the European Union happens) ill be placing a massive order for ad mech, 40k marines, and Horus heresy marine.
    So good times for me ahead.

  5. Okay, your mechanicum units are amazing, and I know you've probably stated this somewhere but What's your recipie for them color wise?

    I'm trying to get started on some Lucius theemed Mechanicum for my Astorum Titans but am having a heck of a time getting them to look right.

    1. The base metal is leadbelcher spray, washed with Agrax and dry brushed with Necron compound I then over paint in thin layers with Abbadon black leaving thin patches and areas of exposed metal. For the bone it's Rakarth flesh (done the same as the black) then washed with agrax, over paint with Rakarth then over paint again with a 1:1 of Ceramite White and Rakarth (each time leaving a little of the previous layer showing around the damaged areas) - the cortex bits are rune Lord brass, washed with agrax, dry brushed with scylax bronze and then Necron compound and then washed twice with seraphim sepia - hope that helps :-)

    2. That's perfect thank you very much!
