Raven Guard in the Sky

This commission was inspired by modern military air cavalry and painted in the chapter colors of the Raven Guard. The standard Space Marine Scouts heads were swapped with Imperial Guard Veterans to achieve a more militaristic look. The smooth blends of khaki on the helmets really accentuate the conversions and bring the models to life. Three units of Scouts in Land Speeder Storms make for a really interesting and mobile troop element to the army. They can be sent ahead at the start, or held in reserves for late game objective grabbing. A really fun force that came together brilliantly.

Another project in development. This Dark Eldar force was begun in conjunction with an apprentice painter to develop the Next Level Painting techniques. The army is a work in progress that will grow over the coming months to showcase the Games Workshop 40k Dark Eldar models.

Here's the final product, all ready for this weekend's tournament. It should be quite a lot of fun to play, and the paint job came out really nice. We've gotten quite a few compliments and a number of inquiries about this particular Grey Knights army. I calculated that to commission the painting of an identical force would run $790.00, and for painting, model purchase and assembly it'd come to $1395.00. This list could of course be modified to match any specific army. Click below to see the full army list for this Saturday.

Chaos Cults Battleforce

A recent painting and assembly commission of the Chaos Battleforce Box to be used for game demonstrations. This modest army features a variety of colors and schemes by utilizing all the various Marks of Chaos. Especially vibrant are the blue Tzeentch Possessed Chaos Marines, and their added icon increases their invulnerable save to 4+ on a D6. This makes the unit a formidable force in close combat and a great complement to the other units. We also converted one of the models to represent a Lord to make a legal small army for play and game demos.
