I'm in a race to 100 miniatures this year (which is paltry compared to previous years, but I've simply painted most of what I need...)


Rogue Trader from Blackstone Fortress


Spindle Drones from Blackstone Fortress


Ur Ghouls from Blackstone Fortress


Tractor...?


Another tractor!


Chaos Beastmen from Blackstone Fortress


Two more Falcons (magnetized now for use as various Eldar tankery-doos)



2019 Painted Miniatures: 76
(2018: 98, 2017: 226, 2016: 233, 2015: 32, 2014: 116)

Beautiful painting on those, love the simplicity of the Ur ghouls.

I'm not sure how much I'll play Blackstone Fortress, and I don't need the urghouls or the spindle drones really (outside of maybe shoe-horning them into narrative bits of Necromunda?) so they got a super minimum paintjob.  The urghouls: skeleton spray, red wash on the hands, some white on the spine bits on the back and dunked...left them glossy because...slick evil creatures.  No point in spending time on them :D

Well consider me hooked.
I was sent here to see the Rhino/Russ conversions and I was very impressed. I hope you dont mind me using the idea, otherwise the Russ sides could go to waste for a while  :?

Fantastic work here and really going to enjoy back reading too  :D

If you're interested in the Rhino-Russ, I have a full break down of how to build them here:

I have a couple more I'll need to do...

Thanks very much for this, I almost did it exactly like yourself without realising and just oging from the photos haha  lol
Really happy with the conversion but have actually opted for the Predator version. Well almost anyway as I do really like the Predator as is, so may do a chimera/russ/rhino mash up  ::)

No problemo, yeah I based mine off of a couple photos I found online.  I figured someone had bashed the two, and while I didn't find a how-to, it was pretty easy to figure out once I got the parts.

The slow start of 2019.  An Imperial Navigator and a pair of Dark Eldar Khymarae which will serve as Chaos Spawn (pets of Malavyn Saal, the wayward Chief Apothecary of the Wandering Sons).  Since I use Malavyn as Fabius Bile, I figure he's taken some loyal hunting dogs (from his homeworld, before the Wandering Sons became the Wandering Sons) and has carried out his mischievous witchery-poo stuff on them...

Awful resin models from GW, fragile as hell - unlikely to make it past a few games before breaking, but...I liked the look initially.

Nicely done.

The Navigator is for a new army?

Another Imperial character, the Missionary, and some Chaos Veterans.

Von Lucky - the characters may be used in scenarios, or will be part of a small Imperial detachment controlled by the Rogue Trader at some point.  The missionary was purchased to replace the awful priest in the Blackstone Fortress box - but I don't think I'll be playing that game any time soon.

I like your standard. Contained choice of colours and painted neatly.

Nice chipping on the armour BTW.
And the effect on the blades works well.

Thanks.  Sadly this is my least favourite squad in a while...the dip I was using has gone a bit bad, and on top of that the primer on the standard went fuzzy so it grabbed all the dip, etc.  However...I will shut up and use them.  I don't think the flip colour scheme works as well on these guys (Veterans of the first company) as the Terminators, but...alas!  I do think the blue power blades balance out the super-drab colour of the squad though...and I think they'll be decent in the game.

Chaos Space Marines (or...my Renegades) don't have actual standards, so I'm using the standard as an Icon for the unit.  They have polearm power blades to mimic the chapter master, Khyrum Saal (they're counts-as power axes).

Got a cool miniature for Christmas from a buddy - one I had asked about.  It's finecast...and is pretty terrible, but I painted it up as a director sieges and artillery for the CSM, a Chaos Lord to hang in the back and direct fire.

Tropios Juut, Siegemaster.
