Painting - Last batch of Minotaurs before Vanquish 2014

I am running very close to my deadline. This is starting to look a little worrying!! However, fear not, basecoats are down on the vehicles and this should gather speed very soon. See where I am at right now, after the jump.

Showcase - Lelith Hesperax by PaintMyBits

Joel from PaintMyBits has been working on another commission in between batching his Raptors for Vanquish 2014. This time he has turned his hand to the pale skinned evil space elves of the 40k universe and painted a beautiful version of Lelith Hesperax.

Painting - Minotaur MK4 Centurions almost finished

With a little over two weeks left before Vanquish 2014 I am working feverishly to finish my Minotaurs. Things are starting to come together but my blogging has definitely suffered as I spend every moment not at work building drop pods and prepping parts for the last stage of the painting process. 

All of the infantry are at a stage where the traditional brush work is finished bar painting the guns and some heads separately from the main models.

The Centurions are one such unit at that stage. Read on to see how they are looking now.

Warmahordes - Unit Review Legion of Everblight Legionnaires

I'm back after a well deserved rest for number 12 in the unit reviews, this time I'm going to be looking at a unit that I haven't used much in the past, the Blighted Nyss Legionnaires.

Painting - Minotaur Centurions

With the Word Bearers reinforced I have turned my attention back to the Minotaurs. I have actually finished the brush work on the Tactical/Sternguard squads now which leaves the Centurions, Terminators and Characters before moving on to painting the weapons for everyone.

Tutorial - Applying Transfer Decals

An often unused and misunderstood hobby skill is the use of decals. We get decal transfers with every box of 40k but unlike military scale modelers many in our hobby find these quite fiddly to work with. With few steps and the right tools these transfer sheets can add a wealth of detail saving a great deal of time that would be necessary to free hand these shapes.

Read on to see how Joel from PaintMyBits gets decals to look good and sit right on a model.
