More pictures from readers: WIP Angels Encarmine

Posted by Kirby on 10/01/2011

Following up on the latest set of pictures we have here a lot of WIP shots from Jesse of his Angels Encarmine. Check his email here:

“Hey Kirby,

I’ve heeded your call for army pictures.  I’ve attached a bunch of pics from my in progress Angels Encarmine.  I’m a slow painter as well, and I don’t have a ton of time to paint each week, so progress has been slow.

I’m running a Jumpers army that will eventually include bikers for Blood Rodeo.  You posted my 1000 pt list a couple weeks ago on your normal blog and I used it in a tournament last weekend and ended up 1-2 🙂  I’m not giving up though!  I beat a space wolves player, but got beat by a C:SM ravenwing list and an ork foot list (40 boyz, 6 kans, big mek, nobz and warboss).  Not sure there was any chance that I could beat the orks, but I deployed wrong against the ravenwing.  I think I’m going to be adding Sanguniary Guard when we increase to 1250 pts.

Anyway, onto the pictures.  The chaplain, two sergeants, and death company hammerer are basically finished.  I’ve put the basecoat and washes on the tactical marines and the assault marines (except their head).  I’ve also done that for all of the assault marine arms and shoulder pads.  I’ll probably be basecoating the rest of the marines, the veterans, and the honour guard next, just so opponents can tell the difference between them, haha.

Well, feel free to put these up in whatever way you choose.  If you want more information or more writing, let me know.

Jesse / Antebellum”

Pictures from readers!

Posted by Kirby on 09/01/2011

I’ve got a couple of articles coming up with some pictures submitted by readers. I’ve been really slack with getting them posted so apologies for the delays!

The first set of pictures are from Steven who sent in this email:

“A while back I had emailed in asking for help with a mechanized CSM army I was painting up as Night Lords.

One of the suggestions was to try it out using Blood Angels, so I borrowed the codex from a friend and explored your BA Jumper articles. I tried out a few things and decided I really liked the style. Very aggressive and in your face, which is a good turn around from playing Hide and Seek with my Tau. So I started the modeling. The cash flow ran dry until after the holidays, when I will be adding jump packs courtesy of MaxMini
The conversions are pretty basic. The Sanguinary Guard have the polearms from Fantasy Chaos Knights as Glaive Encarmines. I was going to order some fancy old style FW Boltguns for Angelus Bolters, but didn’t want to spring for them. So I stuck with regular bolters and stuck them on one handed. Plenty of head swaps were done with the Chaos Fantasy range. Several of the Vanguard and Sang Guard also use Chaos Knight chest pieces.
The Vanguard Veterans have storm shields courtesy of the chaos fantasy Knights and Warriors.
The Sanguinary Priest has a head swap from the Fantasy Chaos Warrior kit…which is one expensive bit btw. Plus a narthecium arm I had on a loyalist.

Hope you like. These are just the final pics. Got more of them in progress if you would like.”

Here are the WIP pics and I’ve asked Steven for some more (whilst apologising as well!).
