Fancy painting a deathwatch marine for a competition /charity?

Hello readers,

If you are intrested there is a nice painting competition charity at the fallen princes

Paint up a sternguard marine as any deatthwatch marine you like, enter it for a competition and if you like donate it for charity.

For more on Deathwatch

So here is the racap of the comp rules

By October 31st to be in a chance to win a prize, you will need:
1) Be a follower of this blog and drop me a comment below saying your entering.
2) Built, paint and send me pictures of your competed figure.
3) Get people to vote for your figure once finalists are chosen.
Now if your interested in the bonus karma and wish to donate your entry to charity, then please email me at
The reason for this is because we will have to organize ourselves a bit better to make a coherent squad. I think for the 1st charity squad we should aim to build a Sternguard Squad.
So as the charity force grows I will add the names to this list and if more people wish to join or make bonus figures then the force will grow.
I am planning on making a minotaur deathwatch marine.
I will be using the shoulder pad from forgeworld, some marine and grey knight bits.

Update soon.

Greek and Nurgle Marines in progress

Goodmorning readers,

I did not win the armies parade competition, a post for this following this week.

Today I would like to reveal the progress of a 3 year in thought project of mine. The greeks marines or as I will be calling them "Pythias Chosen"

From left to right: Avatar of Artemis (Vindicare Assasin), Grey knight Paladin, Iron snakes dreadnaught(grey knight dreadnaught), space marine scout with hi tech cros bow (sniper riffle).

Artemis is from hasslefree miniatures I added some green stuff cause she was in her birthday suit.The hands bow and quiver are from the dragon high elf kit and fits nicely (proof that high elfs are girls!).
Artemis is the only one ready to paint.

The paladin is still wip he still needs shin guards a belt with leather straps and a few greek symbols once I decide which part of Greece is he from.

the Iron snake dreadnaught Is mostly forgeworld I made a copy of the torso cause I was not sure when I was hacking through it if it would be a fail or not. The guns are from puppets war. The shin guards I did from a method Scibor miniatures uses and was kind enough to share,sculpting.php?id=571 . The head is from a chaos defiler carefully greenstuffed.
And finaly the crest is 2 tomb king banners stuck together taken from the 14 legion blog he has some great conversion ideas.
I hope he will be ready for painting by the end of this month.

And last but not least is a sniper I put together yesterday, I thought changing the head was simply not enough so I gave him a high tech crossbow instead of a sniper riffle.

And not forgetting my current love for plaguemarines epidemius

Soon some good pics of my first nurgle army.

Nurgle: Out with the old and in with the new.

Good morning readers,

I handed in my entry for the armies on parade at my local GW store.

Missing from the photos are the norks, epidemius and a couple of demons. I will hand those over on Friday, they still need a bit of painting.

After golden deamon I will be selling it on ebay with starting price 550£ (the models cost 364£) board included, greater deamon of nurgle not included (it can be for an extra 130£).
The list contains at 1500.

I must admit my chaos demon prince's have had very little love. I am waiting for the new codex do decide my HQ, for now they will be painted with a shade of green and maybe I will go back to them.

I will tell you who does a nice DP. the chap form the 14th legion blog, check him out

I will also be working on my greek contemptor dreadnaught, photos soon.
