FINECAST: WHY I HATE IT ALREADY.

Hi guys, recently i ordered some of these 25th anniversary minis.
These were my first finecast mini's and i expected good things as surely all the negative comments had to be just exaggerated anti GW'isms didnt it?

well looks like they were right, they are bloody terrible.

I had 3 minis replaced and the replacements were no better than the ones they originally sent!

Have a look at the state of these.











As you can see they are no good.
Some of you might accept mini's like this, but i urge you do not as you shouldnt have to accept casts that are not perfect (and these are far from good)

That banner is the most bizzarre of the lot, it has a grey powder that rubs off in your fingers! its as if the cast is powdery!

Needless to say i complained about these a week ago and have had no reply from GW.

Today i e mailed yet again as this whole debale has been goin gon over a month now and its really annoying me!

Have your models been like this? and would you accept them?

NEW SPACE MARINE MODELS?

 Hi guys, just noticed this guy when i was watching the new Gw paint trailer.
i dont recognise the sculpt at all, the torso armour looks completely different to what i'm used to!

Is it a new sculpt? perhaps from the upcoming paint sets? or maybe the 6th ed boxed set?

heres the pic.

WIP SUNDAY: OLD SKOOL TERMINATOR IN AN OLD SKOOL SCHEME

Well what the hell do we have here?
An old model, painted in an old scheme....

I was just messing about then painting this, the dangerous thing is, i really enjoyed painting these colours.
maybe this could be my way forward now??

Have a goosey!

MINOTAURS PREDATOR SPEED PAINT JOB FINISHED!

 Hi guys, i cant believe how fast i banged this sucker out, i only picked the model up yesterday morning, did a couple of hours priming it and basecoating in the evening then finished it off tonight.
Then to be fair its only a colour test! i didnt put a lot of time/effort in.

Now, im sorry but im not enjoying these minotaurs anymore, the colour scheme is a pain in the arse, and it doesnt "pop" very well.
My carcharodons however, although they are grey, seem to pop like mad. so.....

I think i'm moving back to the sharks!

Oh well..

anyway, heres the pictures!

MINOTAURS TERMINATOR LIBRARIAN FINISHED

Its time to rejoice! i FINALLY finished this bugger! its only taken what, 3 weeks? i'm relatively happy with how he turned out. Theres a few positives and negatives in there i can work on.
This was my first go at painting power weapon effects and i'm pleased with how they came out, i will DEFINATELY be doing more of it. However, i'm not keen on how the OSL came out, even though i've been trying it for a while now! more practice required me thinks!

The bronze/gold is a bit of an odd one, it would help if Forge world themselves had a consistent colour for these guys, just look at the colour of that relic contemptor on the website, then look at the colour in the IA books! totally different!

It doesnt help with the colour being called "bronze" as it can be anything from a very dark copper, to a highly polished bronze/gold (which i want!)

Anyway, onto the pictures!

NEW FORGE WORLD MARINE TANK SPOTTED? Update, no its just a Deimos rhino...

Hi guys, was watching the Zone mortalis video last night and noticed in one of the shots you can see the front of a piece of armour, looks almost like a thin rhino?

Heres the pic, make of it what you will!



Looks like the front of the supposed "hercules" tank from this old picture to me


 But a bit smaller? Perhaps its an assault/boarding TANK, which would be new! hence why its in those corridor pieces? maybe we will find out on friday!

EDIT: looks like its just the Deimos rhino! shame!

CHEAP LAND RAIDER ACHILLES CONVERSION

Hi all,
I've an upcoming 40k league at the club and this time some forge world units have been approved! (Caestus assault ram for the win!)
I've often been a fan of the trusty land raider and jumped at the chance to run an achilles, even though it is 325 points!
OUCH!

Not wanting to splash out on the admittedly awesome forge world kit of it (i LOVE that minotaurs scheme) I though i would knock up my own conversion using a busted up old land raider i've been using.

Behold the cheap achilles!







Heres a run down of what i've used/done:

1:Cut off the lascannons at the "ribbed part of the barrels" and attached cut down attack bike/land speeder multi meltas.

2: used a GK dreadknight heavy psilencer? (is that the name?) stuck on the front of the heavy bolters with the barrels cut off.

3: stuck on some armour plating from a part of the imperial bastion kit i had laying about, the weird thing is these slot over the tracks almost as if they are custom made for it! Awesome!

Anyway, for a test model i'm pleased with it. I'm also gonna have a crack at airbrushing it bronze which might be a bastard...

hopefully if the model performs well in game i might replace it with a REAL one!

Yay!

Let me know what you think!
