Tutorial: How to paint Black Templars with crisp black armour
In this detailed 46 steps tutorial, I’ll show you how to paint a model from the Black Templars chapter to a reasonably high standard. You’ll learn how to paint black armour with crisp edge highlights, yellow “John Blanche” style yellow bolters, worn leather pouches, and much more.
Showcase: Black Templars Space Marine Heroes Brother Vanial (incl. paint recipes)
Today I present you my version of Brother Vanial from the Space Marine Heroes blindbox Series 1, painted in the livery of the Black Templars. Check out this post for the alternate head, some more angles, and complete list of the paint recipes I used for painting this model.
Showcase: Dark Angels Assault Intercessors
Charging, servo-assisted towering suits of ceramite armoured gene-enhanced humans with chainswords revving and screaming while Heavy Bolt Pistols staccato bark. Slamming into an enemy position and running straight through it. Bodies left torn and rent, screams of mercy as the heretics hold bloody stumps. This is the definition of brutal assault. This is the grim darkness of the far future.
Showcase: Dark Angels Ravenwing Outriders
Vroom vrroooooom! Space Marine bikes are back! These slabs or armoured engine are long, low slung and oversized and perfect for their Primaris riders. They’re perfect mounts for my Primaris Ravenwing, now the Primaris can get involved in the hunt for Cypher and the Fallen.
Showcase: Necron Warriors and Scarabs
Welcome to my first blog post on the new Tale of Painters site. Stahly has done an amazing job on the new website, it’s so good! Anyway, enough of that. I’m here to talk about my newly finished Necron Warriors and Scarabs.
Showcase: Eldar/Aeldari Howling Banshees of Craftworld Ulthwé (incl. paint recipes)
Anger rises. Death wakes. Painting… calls. I just finished a small squad of the new plastic Howling Banshees in a Ynnari-themed Craftworld Ulthwé scheme inspired by the 2nd Edition era ‘Eavy Metal models. And holy Emperor, these death-dealing ladies take a while to do them justice. Check out all the pictures plus the complete list of paint recipes.
Review: Eldar/Aeldari Craftworlds Howling Banshees kit
If you ask an Eldar collector what she*he wants, she*he will tell you this: plastic Aspect Warriors. In 2020, Games Workshop heard our plea and, after 14 years, released another Aeldari warrior aspect in plastic: Howling Banshees, harbingers of woe, arguably one of the most iconic Craftworlds units. In this (overly) detailed review we take a look at the sprues, the various Exarch options, compare the models to Jes Goodwin’s concept art and also see how they scale with the former metal Banshees and other Aeldari models.
Showcase: The Yncarne, Avatar of Ynnead
Here’s the Yncarne, completing the trio of people who had their I and Y on theyr keiboard swytched. Talk about a complicated figure. 😀 But it’s really impressive how the parts fit together. Dry-fitting and lots of planning how to put it together so it…
Showcase: Silver Skulls Primaris Captain from Indomitus
Hi all! While painting the Catachan Allstars Kill Team I managed to finish this Captain from the Indomitus box set, painted for the Silver Skulls chapter. Loads of details on this one, but the lockdown gives me more time to paint 😉 So what are…
Showcase: Yvraine, Emissary of Ynnead
After a little intermission, we got the next member of the Triumvirate of Ynnead – Yvraine. A darned impressive figure isn’t it. And for us old people GW got out the Gyrinx because they like to throw in bits to make old people happy, don’t…
