Budget Photo Setup

     I have just updated my photo setup. It is basically a cheap plastic tub with two lights and a piece of paper for the background. There is a great tutorial on how to make on of your own on Instructables by Light_Lab. This is a very inexpensive way to get some great photos. I already had the lights and paper, so all I needed was a $4 plastic tub. More on the lightbox below, and some comparison shots...

Chaos Pumpkin!

     This weekend my wife and I had our niece over and we all got into the Halloween spirit and carved some pumpkins! And nothing says Halloween like the Star of Chaos. And just for fun, I've included a pattern to make your very own corrupted pumpkin, just below!

WIP: Cyclone Missile Launcher Conversion


     I have been wanting a cyclone missile launcher for quite a while, but I don't really want to pay $20 to get one off of ebay, or get another box of terminators either. But when I found a picture of a converted cyclone by THE_ARCH1TECT made from two hunter killer missiles, and I had a few of those laying around (i never though spending 10pts on something that is S8, one shot was really worth it) i decided to make one of my own. I'm really happy with how it's turning out. I may even like it better than the GW version. More photos below...

Showcase: Imperial Statuary

      Here is my take on the Imperial Statuary in the battlefield debris section of the 6th edition rules. I used a technique that I got from Ded'Ard to paint the bronze statue, but I changed it around a bit to fit the paints I have. It is mostly done, just need to make the dirt and stone look a bit better. More below...

Showcase: Servo-Skull Objective Marker

     In light of the 6th edition using objectives in 5 out of 6 mission types, I decided to make some objective markers. Here is the first one I have completed. It's a servo-skull (most likely carrying extremely sensitive information) floating around in a ruined building. More pictures below...

The Angels of Retribution background

Screenshot from THQ's "Space Marine".
       The Angels of Retribution are my self made space marine chapter, who were betrayed by half of their chapter which turned to chaos, and were in turn excommunicated from the Imperium. The chapter was formed from two chapters, the Knights of Sanguinius, and the Lions of Caliban joining together to hunt down and destroy their fallen brothers. More details below...

Tutorial: Rule Counters

     Here is my take on the vehicle damage markers and rule counters from a post over on From the Warp.  I thought this was a great idea, and definitely an improvement over using dice to mark damage results on vehicles. I decided to put my photoshop skills back to work and make some for myself, and this is what I came up with. Let me know what you think in the comments...

Showcase: Space Marine Attack Bike

      I finally finished the Attack Bike that has been sitting around unpainted for a few years. This is the first model completed using my updated paint style and I think that it's going to work great as an army. Hopefully, these guys will be joined soon by some Space Marine Bikers! More pictures below:

Tutorial: Painting a Space Marine Captain

      I'm coming back to painting after quite a long time. After looking back at the models I've done in the past, I realized I need to update my painting style (and my paints since the GW paints are different now). So I decided to paint the assault on Black Reach captain that has been sitting around unpainted for far too long. More pictures below.
