It's Hammer Time

I'm getting close to completing my squad of Terminators, Shields and Hammers! How cool do these guys look, yes I'm slightly biased but they do look hardcore! I forgot how good GW's stuff looks and how much I rate their stuff. Now price is sometimes an issue but for the pure pleasure of seeing these guys up close and full of detail ,makes it worth it!

       The first four completed.

The Shields and Hammers really make these guys look like trouble, I added the yellow to the shields to make them pop a tad more. 

 I've still got a couple more to paint, although one is my Space Marine Commander in Terminator armour and the other is getting equipped with power claws! I think the leader deserves to armed slightly differently. 

 I'm still toying with adding a few more bits of detail to the bases, I like the ripped up cork but I think it needs breaking up a tad with something. 

 so that's about it for this post, I will finish up with a few shots of the individual figures 

So thanks for looking 
  Cheers for now Russ

40k Terminator and a few marines

I've finished a few bits and pieces this week and here they are. It's more of a mixed bag then it sounds, I've not painted anything 40k for a good while so I suppose it had to happen sooner or later. 

    40k Terminator 

Games Workshop make some cracking models and although I'm not a die hard fan I do enjoy making and painting some of there stuff from time to time. I know I have a soft spot for certain things within ranges and Terminators are one of them, so I suppose it shouldn't really be a surprise I chose a Terminator to kick things off! 

 I went for a tad of colour on the shield just to add my own touch to the model. 

 I really do think these models have a real true hard arse look to them, not the kind of guys you'd want to meet in a dark alleyway.

 The base is ripped up cork tile and a piece of plastic H beam.

 So this guy will join my collection as the first in a squad of 5 close combat Terminators. 


Now on to the marines, and no not space marines but these guys 

 28mm Warlord Games US marines, once again plastic figures and although I'm no expert I think they pretty good! I mixed up the colours a tad, I do enjoy mixing it up a bit. 

 The camouflage was a challenge, I did enjoy myself and couldn't resist trying both green and brown versions. The brightness of the base green looked a bit OTT until I added the different colour blotches. 

 Now more are on there way but so are more Red Devils, more Soviets, more Germans! I'm guessing by now you've got the picture. So absolutely anything could be next! 

Well that's about it for now! Keep looking and I will posting 
Cheers for now Russ
