  1. Thanks guys! Yeah, the fact that the Nexos is overlooking GW HQ is a really sweet touch. I visited Warhammer World this summer on vacation, which made the miniature even that much cooler to paint up... ("we parked right.... here!").
  2. More cult goodness! Finally got the Nexos completed along with the standard bearer for one of the Command Squads for the Brood Brothers detachment! The Nexos is one of the nicest miniatures I've put together. Fit is awesome, design is awesome. I build and painted it in pieces to get it just right The Standard bearer took some work as I had to file out all of the detail on the flag, but I'm happy with the end result I'd been hoping to get both of these done for Armies on Parade, but hey - better late than never! Lots more on the table... watch this space!
  3. I only found out about the Armies on Parade event a couple of months ago, so I sort of had to get the base work in high gear. Ended up going with the Cityscape Genatorium Sector as most of the base with a few extra bits added. While I didn't medal, I did take "Best Painted" - so overall I'm happy! Front view - Iconward hoisting the colors over the Imperial Building loosely inspired by the Soviet flag raising over the Reichstag in 1945 Another view: More at the blog: https://miniordnancerev.blogspot.com/2019/10/armies-on-parade-uprising.html

  5. So since my last blog entry was a little light on details, I decided to go into the nitty gritty of getting the Cult Baneblade together and painted in the most recent installment. It's a simple green baneblade, that used: 3 colors of primer Over 26 colors of paint + two pigments At least four different washes Full details (including the epic paint chart below) at the blog! https://miniordnancerev.blogspot.com/2019/10/genestealer-cult-baneblade-in-detail.html#more

  7. Oh... we got about 11 of those... 😄
  8. Okay - everyone channel your inner Boromir! I started with the standard Baneblade kit, and decided from the outset I wanted to go with the vanilla version. Construction was a bit tricky as I wanted to leave the tracks off of the vehicle and paint them separately before adding them to the vehicle. I found that supergluing the wheel segments on so I could easily hold them in alignment until they dried was effective. The rest of the construction process was relatively straight forward, if time consuming. Honestly the hardest part was converting one of the commander figures to a four-armed genestealer hybrid - and mostly because I had to find a right arms set that would fit above the cupola. Except for the tracks and a few details, painting essentially follows the pattern I've set forth with my other vehicles for this army. I'm using Ammo of Mig 4BO green using transparator thinner over a pre-shaded black and white base coat. This is followed with very liberal chipping and then oil streaking with an dark brown Ammo of Mig oilbrusher finished up with a black wash. As I always like to try something new, I went a different direction on the tracks based on examples in Mig's Enclyclopedia of Armour Modelling Techniques. I started with a red oxide primer, then used shadow rust and medium rust as an airbrushed base followed by polished metal highlighting. I then thinned down some Kursk Mud as a wash and finally went back with gunmetal pigment (essentially graphite) brushed on as a final highlight. Getting the tracks on and aligned was fairly tricky, but the end result looks pretty cool. Another difference is I used one of my chrome paint pens - well, okay the paint from a chrome paint pen - as backing for the clear and clear red fixtures on the vehicle itself. I also added some stowage from the kit and a couple of other bin dives. Decals as always are a mix of Games Workshop and Scumb4g Kustoms who I simply can't recommend highly enough.

  9. At one point a user on Facebook asked, "how do you beat a Baneblade with Genestealer Cult" I believe I now have the definitive answer... This beast was a load of fun to paint up and build. There are lots of little touches here and there if you go looking for them. I even tried something new with the tracks this time around. If you're so inclined you can read the full story at my blog - including some fun backstory on the Baneblade in Warhammer 40K. https://miniordnancerev.blogspot.com/2019/09/genestealer-cult-they-have-baneblade.html#more
  10. Looks like I'd just needed to update my files, which it did when I logged in this time. I see it now and it's working fine! Thanks for the help (PC version, BTW).
  11. I didn't see that option when I tried... let me make sure my files are up to date. Thanks!
  12. I should have fortifications and a German force together by sometime in October (likely late)
  13. I'm using exclusively Iwata's at this point...
  14. Aside - I'm still working on my festungskompanie - hope to have it done for October... still need some arty...
