Time to go a bit space-crazy. Normally you stay uniform in terms of colouring. Three main colours, and sparingly with the rest. Simple harmonic rule of mine. The datasmith is an inviting break. Though more vibrant, I still rest on keeping the palette simple in terms of spread. More room for green, red, and especially… Continue reading Need to solder that gadget of yours? Cybernetica Datasmith gets it.
Following up on my previous post, its time to wrap up my first unit of troops. It was interesting painting a larger amount of models in one batch. On one hand, it became a bit of an assembly line, painting the different parts multiple times in a row. On the other hand, it was very… Continue reading Skitarii Rangers – part 2/2

Here is where I started becoming comfortable with myself and began challenge myself; paying more attention to smaller details such as the hazard marking on the tubings, and free hand the patterns on their robes. One thing I came up with was the idea of adding more… Continue reading Skitarii Rangers part 1/2 – patched up and ready

Basically claws, metallic limbs and sharp stuff pointing in every possible direction coming out of a red torso. They also have heads,… Continue reading Sicarian Ruststalkers – The obsession takes form

Until late 2016, my knowledge of the lore of 40k was very shallow, and so I started to wonder what the guy at the GW-store was on about, pushing hard to make me buy not only the codex for Skitarii, but also for Cult Mechanicus. I went… Continue reading Corpuscarii Electro-Priests – Humble beginnings
