So bought this amazing model, can't wait to paint her.

Made myself a Swarmlord too, since this picture was taken I added a deceased Ultrasmurf to the base.

AND THE BIG REVEAL, DRUM ROLL PLEASE!

What range is the first mini (the lady) from?

I have to say your Primarch looks great! I'd even say it's about one of your best painted minis so far (as far as I remember), even better than the genestealer cultists, which I liked already!

Awesome work on super smurf! You did great! Glad to see that you have a Swarmlord. The Tyranids preview for the next edition made it sound like he would be an ultimate close combat monster. The changes they are going to get will make them unstoppable again hopefully!

The mini is from Anvil Industry's Afterlife Game, something I've actually wanted to buy models for but have yet to get the chance.

And thanks, it was a commission job so I had to put my heart and soul in to it :D :D :D

I'm currently helping the Gamesworkshop Manager near where I'm living getting some of the Dark Imperium stuff painted up for use on the 17th, I've mainly been focusing on the Pox Walkers, but other than that, my current pieces that I've been working on is an Ork Battle Wagon and my Heresy era Alpha Legion Tactical Squad. Would show pictures, as well as some minor improvements on Robust Gillybutt, but the process of getting them uploaded on my phone right now would take a while :roll:

Double post, just saves me editing. I've sneaked in a peak of the new Indexes, and Nids have gotten A LOT better

So I decided to start an Ork army, on top of my ever expanding Nids, Genecults and Deathwatch (which I haven't added to for a while)

Opted for a Death Skullz Clan for the majority of my work, but my Mekka Mob (or the Kan Klan as I like to call them) are going to be of varying colours as they are the humor side of my Ork army.

My Chimera Transport which I've gutted and attempted to convert in to a Goliath Truck (Or Trak as I like to call it)

Image

I also started work on my Pre Heresy Era Alpha Legion

Image

Image

Image

Image


And I painted the Pox Walkers belonging to the Gamesworkshop store in Swansea, complete with a permission given Rick and Morty

Image

Image

Image

and I also entered a Painting competition for the Chapter of Gamesworkshop Swansea

The Swansea Chapter is a bit to colourful to my personal taste, though you painted the scheme nicely! I really like your "Cronenbergs", as I will call them, picking up on your Rick and Morty reference (awesome show!). ;)
The metallic look on your Alphas is also pretty cool. How did you like the FW-paint?

I love them, they make painting Alpha Legion so much easier.

At first I did think my paint job looked a tad bright, it's slightly darker in person but I needed the flash on to take the picture otherwise it wouldn't had come out right. I did base the colour scheme on the new Wonder Woman costume though, I would of painted the "W" on the shoulder, but my free hand ain't that good :roll:

on a side note, a smaller update today.

I wanted to share a picture of my Genecult army as well, but the picture wouldn't upload for some reason.

Image

and here's a picture of my first winged Hive Tyrant slowly getting some paint on it

Image

The carapace colours on my nids are going to be pretty much 100% the same on all of them. But the skin tone will vary. Some will be Agrax Earthshade, some Reikland Fleshshade, and some will be Seraphim Sepia.

EDIT; Genecult photo just uploaded.

Image

if anyone wants a close up of any of my models, simply ask :D

New information. A guy who I was painting Imperial Fists for, no longer wants them, so it looks like I'm starting a Crimson Fists army.

Pictures posted tomorrow (or Monday) of what I currently have

I'm not far from Swansea haha Never been into the GW there since it moved from its original location though. Usually just go to the Carmarthen one now. Your dudes look awesome, I'm looking forward to seeing the Swarmlord painted up.

Also, your Rick and Morty remind me of the Cronenberg R&M

That's fair, I'm from Pembrokeshire originally, but a student at swansea Uni. I haven't been to the GW in Camarthan, but there is a local store I go to here in Pembrokeshire


ANYWHO. In recent events of Photobucket changing some policies, and charging individuals $400 a year for posting to 3rd party sites. Reworking this WIP will take some time, the photo's are ready to be uploaded but due to the fact I have no job right now, most of my attention has been given to that and completing painting commissions. Would very much appreciate your patience in the matter.

Very thankful to you chaps for understanding.

To... I mean Sniperfex *kiss*

You might want to try imgur for putting photos on third party sites. It is still free to do so their. Good luck with fixing the problems, I am looking forward to see more models. :)
