The Chosen

And I have finally finished painting The Chosen Chaos Space Marines! I really like these models, they have fantastic design.The only thing that bothers me are these mutations on shoulderpads etc, but well... they are chosen of chaos, right? They have to have such additions!

IT'S OVER 1000!!!

Wednesday, 10 July 2013 - that day I started writing this blog. It all started just as an excersise which I've made for myself. I haven't been learning english regularly for a long time and I was afraid that I will be slowly forgetting more and more about that language. And that was the main reason why I started writing here.

New section of the blog!

Today I've created a new section in this blog - a gallery. In this section I'll post both my and YOUR models! I've started with some of my friends models - a mix of Dark Eldars, Space Marines and their chaotic counterparts.

If YOU want me to show YOUR models:

1. Take some photos (but please, no blurry pictures - I think we both would want to present your model in the best way possible - even the best masterpiece would look terribly on a blurred image).
2. Send them to me! (You can add something about them, your hobby, anything you would like to share with the others!)

Aaaand another one?

After making the first one I needed to make another one, but better. For that I prepared a special "device" to rotate the miniature without moving it on the table. And also this time I've taken more photos to make this rotation smoother. Enjoy!

My first 360 photo

Hi everyone! Today I've tried for the first time to make a 360 photo! Just like these photos on GW webstore or on other blogs. I used this tutorial to make it. I hope you'll like it!

Faithful flock of Tzeentch

And finally here they are - the first of the 20 cultists from the Dark Vengeance set! After months of painting different models I have finished one complete unit of 10 cultists with autoguns. I know that they are just simple cannon fodder which task is to swarm and slow down the enemy or capture the objective. But I like them, I really like them. I like the idea of lots of zealot, crazy, aggresive cultists who can be only led by the words spoken by Dark Apostle. I like the idea how they would attempt suicidal missions believing that they will be granted many rewards after that. And besides that - they are fun to paint!

Whole gang together

Hellbrute getting dirty

I always have this dilemma - to leave a model perfectly clean, beautiful, fresh without a scratch, or rather make it look like it took a part in a battle... But since Hellbrute is a great killing machine I couldn't leave it in such perfect condition!

Faithful servant of Tzeentch

Since I'm collecting a Thousand Sons warband, Templars of Syrinx, a sorcerer is a must have! I had luck to order metal CSM Sorcerer with Force Sword just before he disappeared from the store. It took me about 6 months to start painting this model, and before that I decided to convert him a bit.

Why there was no updates?

Well, well, well... and again I have no idea what to start with... Maybe I'll explain why I havent been posting anything for these few months. First of all I had exam session and I had to focus on that. The other reason for that silence is lack of material - I want to post some pics, but I don't think that posting pictures of 1 model per 1 post is a good thing. I want to make posts presenting full squads and I don't have any. And last but not least - lack of motivation. OK, I know, I started writing this blog for myself, just to have a reason to use english and have fun with my models. But there is no response from readers and, well, no readers at all. The only visitors on this blog are google checking if everything on this blog is ok and legal, and spam bots from Russia. But there are still some "normal" visitors, and I'm happy for that, I like it when I see that someone has found that site. I really hope that these people would come back here later. And I want to keep posting here for such people, and just for myself too.

Enough with complaining - now I'll tell you what am I planning to do. I have painted about 10 models, added some battle damage to the Hellbrute and finally some decals, so I will present this to you. After that I will teach you how to paint clothes on an example of 2 cultists in a new tutorial. I really enjoy painting such parts and I can say that I'm pretty good at it.

So be prepared for some updates!

A little Chaos Update

My army of Thousand Sons is slowly growing stronger and getting more colours. I've already posted a picture of one Chaos Space Marine but right now I've already painted a cultist leader, a hellbrute and I'm painting a second Marine.

Brute strenght and furious violence

I've been looking forward to this day since I bought the Dark Vengeance starter set - to convert and paint the Hellbrute, the chaotic counterpart of the Imperial Dreadnought or rather something what used to be it in the past.

This model is my first serious conversion - I didn't want this hellbrute to end up as a standard DV Hellbrute with powerfist and multimalta - I really wanted to create something unique and that's why I've changed the head of the Marine inside of this machine and the main weapon.

The Wolves of Masyafuss

Ahhh... finally after about 4 months I have finished the Tactical Marines Squad made out of the Space Wolves Pack box. I really enjoyed doing that because it was something new in my hobby but it still can be used with my "standard" Space Marines.

A loyal warrior of the Chapter

Few weeks ago, when I started making models of the Wolf Squad I ordered the Space Wolves Accesories Frame from Games Workshop. I realised that if I'll order these parts I would be able to kitbash another model with both space wolves pack and devastators bits and still be able to make 10 tacticals and 5 devastators. And that's how I've made the Captain  of the Wolf Company!

March Update #1

I know that it's been a long time since my last post, but I hope that I'll be able to post new content at least once a month now. I had some problems with my laptop and also some exams to pass (phew, I passed last two today!) so I didn't have time for the blog. But during this absence I've  made a lot of models. I'm currently finishing both Devastators and Wolf Tactical Squads (there is only 1 dev and 2 wolves left) and after that I will be painting Chaos Space Marines models from the Dark Vengeance set (and also 1 metal Sorcerer with Force Sword). I've already chosen to paint them in the colours of the Thousand Sons, my favourite of the csm legions.

Little Helpers of the 41st Millenium

I was really happy to find out that the set of Devastators have a bits of 4 servoskulls in it! I know that they do nothing in the tabletop game and they are just a decoration but damn... that's cool! First thing I thought was to make one as a familiar for my commander! After I did it I realised that another servoskull design fits the style of the Techpriest and I couldn't resist to make this one too. And here they are!

Masyafuss First and Only (at this point) Guardsmen

Few days before Christmas I finally finished the last man of the most basic Imperial Guard Infantry squad. It's finally full 10-men squad. Well they are not so very impressive since they are just simple dry-fit models, but I had to make this squad complete.

Summary of 2013 and nice start of The New Year!

I have so many news right now! An idea for a tutorial, new models, finishing the old ones, items in mail order, well, there is a lot to write!

Well, since we already have a year of 2014 I want to make a summary about my collection at the end of the previous year (I should add a proper photo later I think).

I started making 2 armies, both Imperial - Space Marines and Imperial Guard. Since I decided to stop buying IG models until the release of the 6th edition codex and some new models I only have 1 simple squad of 10 man with lasguns and 1 Techpriest. Space Marines have better situation because I focused on that army. And at the end of 2013 my colection was made of:
