Weekly Progress Report: 19-05-2019

Hi all

What have we been up to?

Drake has been ploughing on with his Warbringer Nemesis (expect a post this week with a big update). He is also getting rather excited for the opportunity to paint some models with the new Contrast range after having a play with them at Warhammer Fest.


Looking forward to trying them out with the thinner, but the above mini was painted in 5 minutes. It will make horde armies (especially Tyranids and maybe Imperial Guard) an absolute breeze.

Hector has been busy working on his Thousand Sons ready for Throne of Skulls next week. They're pretty much done now and Hector is looking at what to start working on next.




What have you been up to?

AoS Review: Soul Wars Forbidden Power

Hi all

We have been sent a sample of the new AoS Forbidden Power boxset.

I thought we would have a look at the Sprues of the excellent new Spells.

By far my favourite is this:
 The Penumbral Engine, whilst not a spell is a fantastic piece of terrain for the realms. The design is just awesome and will be a joy to paint. Add this to the new terrain range that is coming out shortly and your battlefields will look ace.

 The design work that went into this cog work device is just satisfying to look at!

The symbols and are cast in such a way that I can barely believe it is possible from a GW injection mould.

Lauchon the Soulseeker looks great. After seeing the new contrast paints at Warhammer Fest, I can't help but think that the smoke effects and black skulls could be done really nice and easily in 10 minutes. Hope to get my hands on them soon too for a thorough mess around!

 Same with the Shards of Valagharr. The smoke will be a fun thing to paint with the new Contrast paints (maybe followed with a slight drybrush?) and maybe the Shards themselves too.


The Soulscream Bridge is also highly detailed and it looks as though it may be able to support some serious weight with the design. I think this would a great piece for Dioramas in the future too.



The Box comes with all the usual cards you expect to find for the Forbidden Powers.




The more I see these spells, the more jealous I am getting for 30K and 40K. I think these spells actually may have a decent place in the future universe too.

Cracking designs as always GW!

Previews of Dark Angels


Well. That is incredible. Too nice for words. 



I think this is one of the best looking models ever. Forge World have knocked it out of the park. 



Throne that is amazing. Look at the Knees. Incredible work. 




The Armigers are cracking too. 









Weekly Progress Report: 12-05-2019

Hi all,

Let's take a look at what we've been working on this week.

Drake has been working on his Warbringer. He managed to get the oil wash and buff done. Not much more to do now!!







Hector capitalised on the long weekend last week and made a lot of progress on his Thousand Sons. His tanks need a bit of weathering and then they're good to go and his marines are following closely as they are base coated (but pending a little bit of tidying up).



How are your projects progressing?
