As usual no fucking painting done in about 3 weeks. On the other hand check out the old lead that’s arrived recently. Really pumped about the proto captain tycho and the captain with terminator honors. I used to see these in the backs of the old 2nd editions Ultramarines codex and old white dwarves. The rogue trader marine is pretty cool too. Really stoked to have them in my collection 💪🏻#paintingwarhammer #warhammer40k #oldhammer

Batch painting custodes and Edge highlighting gold is fucking tedious. Fml🤬 #warhammer40k #warhammer40000 #adeptuscustodes #paintingwarhammer
A couple more Rogue Trader era chaplains arrived in the mail today. Love these quirky Mark Copplestone sculpts. Obviously doesn’t hold up too well today but damn they have character. #paintingwarhammer #warhammer40k #adeptusastartes #roguetrader #warhammer40000
I haven’t been painting much and I’m such a whore for likes on social media. So here’s something I painted over Xmas last year. Thanks for feeding my social media dependency. 🤷‍♂️#adeptusastartes #paintingwarhammer #spacemarines #warhammer40k #warhammer40000
Muahaha more lead for the lead pile! 1st up this awesome Ultramarines captain. Let’s ignore the fact that the pose is weird and let’s focus on how iconic this miniature is. Really capturing the Greco-Roman feel of the Ultramarines with the helmet crest, the power gladius and the testicle protecting leather stripy thingo majigos.  Next up is Maugan Ra. What a bad ass miniature! Killer amounts of bones and skulls plus a totally awesome weapon. I believe this ancient sculpt is still for sale from GW though in shitty fine cast form 🤢. And the third miniature  up is good ole Lord Macragge himself; Marneus Calgar! The 2nd version of this character is awesome. Armed with the Gauntlets of Macragge and many of the same Greco-Roman imagery of the afore mentioned captain (testicle protecting leather strip things). This is a mini I’ve been wanting since I was a kid.  Check out the rogue trader era space marine chaplain. This is the third chaplain I’ve been lucky enough to obtain. Despite how primitive they are I love these chaplains. It’s one the quaintest sculpts (check out the power sword sculpt) but man is it loaded with character. As usual I hope these minis bring back sweet childhood memories. Feel free to share any nostalgia 💪🏻#paintingwarhammer #adeptusastartes #spacemarines #eldar #aeldari #ultramarines #chaplain #leatherstriptesticleprotectors

Okay last mini from the archive. Primaris lieutenant from the Dark Imperium boxed set painted about 10 months ago. Absolutely cracking sculpt will have to paint another one one of these days. I believe I might have copied the helmet marking from a White Dwarf. Have been painting the past few days so new minis should be on the way. #adeptusastartes #paintingwarhammer #warhammer40k #warhammer40000 #spacemarines #crimsonfists

Plumbing the depths of my archives pt2. Here is a primaris ancient I painted about 10 months ago. I really love all the marines that came in the dark imperium box set, but I have a ton of love for the primaris officers. Features some rudimentary free hand on the banner. #adeptusastartes #paintingwarhammer #warhammer40000 #warhammer40k #spacemarines #crimsonfists

Some of the old lead that’s arrived this week. The old death company chaplain, the man himself, Ragnar Blackmane and an old mordheim witch hunter. As most of you know I’m going thru this weird nostalgic phase picking up lead and codices/army books from my childhood era. Obviously today’s minis are in a different league but I still find these very cool. I fantasize about painting these like the old Eavy metal style and I’m pretty sure I have the skills to do so! I’m very pumped to paint Ragnar while the rest will sit in a box with the rest of my plastic crack. Feel free to share any of your favorite minis from this era in the comments below! #paintingwarhammer #adeptusastartes #spacemarines

MUAHAHA I won this auction a couple of days back and it arrived today. Really pumped to get the Avatar. My pile of plastic crack has been joined by an old lead pile! #paintingwarhammer #eldar #avatarofkhaine #exarch #swoopinghawks #firedragons
Fuck all painting so it’s back on board the retro-train. Codex Ultramarines was the 3rd codex I bought as a kid and has held up pretty well over the last 23 years. Fronted by another brilliant Dave Gallagher cover, this is a perfect example of the early 90s red period where bright primary dominate especially in the use of red as a spot colour. There isn’t a ton of original John Blanche art in this codex but there is some amazing black and white pieces by Mark Gibbons of an ultramarine chaplain(Cassius?) and the Lord Macragge himself. The minis and battle scenes are ace! The 1st company still has beef with the tyranids and How cool is that ork settlement? The Ultramarines in the fluff have always been held up as the archetypal codex chapter and although the lions share of rules and miniatures shown are Ultramarines there are some really cool miniature of the Legion of the Damned, the imperial fists and a host of other codex chapters. Although it’s quite obvious that the fluff was still at quite a rudimentary stage as I would describe the Black Templars as following then structures of the codex astartes. Anyways enough enjoy the pics and comment if this gives you fond memories. #paintingwarhammer #warhammer40k #adeptusastartes #ultramarines

Had fuck all painting these last few days. So I thought this would be a great opportunity to share some of my latest pick ups. As some of my followers know I’ve developed a hobby boner for early to mid 90s miniatures. Thanks to eBay it’s been quite easy to indulge my predilection. The first pic is of a rogue trader era chaplain. I only purchased it because the tiranoc chariot in the second picture arrived minus an axle. I was able to find an axle from a seller who also had this fella for sale. I’m actually really happy to own this chap. I totally dig this sculpt which I believe is Mark Copplestone. He will definitely get a coat of paint in the near future. The second pic is my Tiranoc chariot! I got this bad boy for a song but he arrived sans axle. I love the Egyptian influence in the chariot and I think the charioteers sculpt is hella cool💪🏻I definitely wanna paint this dude and give it a goblin green base. Anyone else collect the old stuff? #warhammerfantasy #paintingwarhammer #warhammer40k #warhammer40000 #highelves #spacemarines

Making very slow progress with my custodes so let’s bust out another 4th edition army book appreciation; this time the Wood Elves! I totally dig the great cover art by Dave Gallagher. I had already started buying White Dwarf by this stage so I remember the release of the Wood Elves fairly clearly. As usual there are some really cool battle scenes. I must admit the old terrain gives me a massive hobby boner. There’s only one John Blanche piece of art in this book but it’s awesome. The bulk of the art work is from the legendary Mark Gibbons. I’ve always been a massive fan of his work in both the codices and army books and his work shines here. There are also some very cool miniatures in with the general on the forest dragon and the war dancers being particular stand outs of mine! Hope You peeps enjoyed this brief retrospective and it brought back some fond mid 90s memories! #paintingwarhammer #woodelves #warhammerfantasy #armybook

Had a play around with my air brush set up today. Was pretty fun and a lot easier than I thought. Managed to get a nice smooth coat of Vallejo model air glorious gold down. Will probably spray more dudes at once to maximize set up time. Now time to get in with brushes! Anyone wanna share some tips and tricks for the absolute newb that I am? #warhammer40k #paintingwarhammer #warhammer40000 #adeptuscustodes

So it’s taking me for ever to clean and prep my first batch of custodes so why not throw back to one of my favorite primaris sculpts from dark imperium. I totally love the powerful inertia this sculpt has. I can definitely see him striding across a battle field, with rounds ricocheting off his armour as he bounds forwards! #spacemarines #warhammer40k #paintingwarhammer #adeptusastartes #crimsonfists

When I was a kid I collected mainly blood angels but I always thought the old space wolves were pretty cool. Some really awesome unique sculpts and they had some very cool fluff, I mean who wouldn’t love space Vikings? Anyways I found this on eBay for a great price and I couldn’t resist. It’s sooo good to see these sculpts again. As usual I’m totally digging the colour palette, the bright saturated colours and I really dig this eras space wolf blue/grey armour. Lots of really cool art(an early image of leman russ), battle scenes and of course Ragnar Blackmane and Bjorn The Fell Handed. Anyone else love 2nd edition Space Wolves? Ps I just ordered a Ragnar off eBay 💪🏻#paintingwarhammer #spacewolves #spacemarines #warhammer40k #warhammer40000

Holy shit balls! Hopefully I can knock these off before the sisters of battle drop... #paintingwarhammer #adeptuscustodes #wtfhaveigottenmyselfinto
Last of the series of pics I took with my ghetto rig. Tried to brighten the colours without losing too much saturation. #paintingwarhammer #warhammer40k #warhammer40000 #spacemarines #adeptusastartes #bloodravens
