Garfy’s 2023 Hobby Resolution and Recap of 2022
Celebrating the Last 12 month’s of hobby output is an annual tradition here at Tale of Painters. I’m going to take a look back through the year and share what I managed to paint and how many of my 2022 hobby resolutions I succeeded in completing. I’ll also share my 2023 resolutions.
Showcase: Abhorrant Ghoul King with Crown of Delusion (inc. painting guide)
Perched on his throne of lies, this sovereign has a secret and I think I’ve solved it. Welcome to my what could have been. Welcome to the Court of the deluded painter and his ramblings on Cursed City. Stay to the end for detailed shots and my Abhorrant Ghoul King painting guide.
Showcase: Leagues of Votann Einhyr Hearthguard
No, these aren’t Chibi Space Marine Terminators, they’re Einhyr Hearthguard in Exo-armour. Despite their size, there are a lot of parallels though including deep striking and a 2+ save. In today’s post, I share my thoughts on their design as well as detailed high-quality photography of my squad I painted.
Showcase: Leagues of Votann Cthonian Beserks
Hi ho, hi ho, it’s off to work I go! These augmented space miners are off to deal with a wicked Wych or two before heading to the nearest asteroid to mine it for precious materials. You can check out the close up of my painted squad here, unless you’re too busy sleeping in forest waiting for a Daemon Prince to wake you.
Showcase: Great Unclean One (inc. painting guides)
As 2022 draws to a close my Great Unclean waddles in and joins the rest of my #newyearnewarmy project I started in January. In this post they’ll be some pictures of him and the 1500pt Maggotkin army I painted. There’s also a group shot of all my Chaos Greater Daemons.
Showcase: Blood Bowl Shambling Undead Team Skeleton (incl. painting guide)
When Vallejo sent me their new Xpress Colors, I was looking for a model I could try the new paints on. My choice was this Skeleton player from the Shambling Undead Blood Bowl team, as it has a nice amount of (in)organic detail and texture that is perfect for a Contrast painting style. I also tried to slapchop for the first time! Find out more in this post.
Showcase: Leagues of Votann Hearthkyn (incl. painting guide)
I painted 20 Leagues of Votann Hearthkyn for today’s post. These doughty space faring industrialists are pretty cool and a lot of fun to paint. Find out more in today’s post.
Showcase: Sons of Horus Contemptor Dreadnought with CCWs
Hooray, I painted something! The Contemptor Dreadnought is one of my favourite kits from the Horus Heresy plastic range, so I couldn’t help to paint one for my small Sons of Horus collection. Find out more after the jump.
Showcase: New Cadian Shock Trooper
Since Games Workshop kindly sent me the Astra Militarum army set, and at the same time my set of Two Thin Coats paints arrived, I thought to kill two birds with one stone and painted one of the new plastic Cadians to get a better feeling of Duncan Rhode’s new paint range.
