Blood Angels Devastator Missile

Devastator Squad & Astorath the Grim – Wardens Encarmine

Bit of an update on my Blood Angels Successor Chapter, the Wardens Encarmine. First up, the Devastators. I painted these guys some time amidst the fog of last year, but hadn’t managed to take any photos until today. Here they all are, outfitted with iconic weaponry in the form of heavy bolters and missile launchers. The kit comes with some nice options to make the … Continue reading Devastator Squad & Astorath the Grim – Wardens Encarmine

Sanguinary Priest, Ancient & Chaplain – Wardens Encarmine

Here is the Sanguinary Priest and Sanguinary Guard Ancient. I used a few layers of Soulstone Red and chucked in some Lamenter’s Yellow Glaze to try and give the chalice contents an interesting finish. And here is the Chaplain. He’s great as a test model for my Death Company as well, but I really try to avoid painting black – tough to edge highlight (I … Continue reading Sanguinary Priest, Ancient & Chaplain – Wardens Encarmine

8th edition is here – midnight opening in NZ

Back home and excited to have picked up our pre-orders and some additional items for Nachobuddy’s Mechanicum. Nice to get some freebies in the form of the art print, range rulers, battle primer, and extra mission sheet (albeit for Primaris vs. Death Guard), at the midnight launch of Warhammer 40,000 8th edition. Cheers to the local GW! I’ve pre-ordered the digital version of the main … Continue reading 8th edition is here – midnight opening in NZ

Sanguinary Guard – Wardens Encarmine

I’ve almost finished my Sanguinary Guard (and Ancient, by 8th edition standards). Just the banner left to paint – scroll work, the angel, and ‘tear drops’. My plan had been to paint these the more traditional white and gold/bronze. But, given the darker tone of my palette across the rest of my army, and overall lack of white tones, I figured they’d mesh better if … Continue reading Sanguinary Guard – Wardens Encarmine

Sanguinary Guard progress & 8th edition thoughts

A triple of general business, a natural lapse in hobby interest, and between editions limbo, has meant I’ve done little painting or playing recently. However, having seen some of the material for the new edition, and with the benefit of a fun demo of the new starter at my local store, I’m keen to get more of my Blood Angels successor chapter painted. I turned … Continue reading Sanguinary Guard progress & 8th edition thoughts

Terminator Assault Squad & Rhinos – Wardens Encarmine

The Chief Librarian / Acting Chapter Master of the Wardens Encarmine – Narin Trul – now has a suitable guard of honour in the form of my recently completed Terminators. As a unit, these are probably my favourite in the Blood Angels range. They feel pretty iconic. My initial plan for the red had been quite elaborate – almost as many steps as the yellow … Continue reading Terminator Assault Squad & Rhinos – Wardens Encarmine
