Tuesday Project: Black Templar Terminator

Taking a break from Calth for a few hours, I completed a test mini for a joint project my brother and I will be working on soon. I had some termies sitting around from the Deathstorm box that didn't fit into any of my armies, so I thought I would paint one of them up. I went with a Black Templar because the paint scheme is relatively simple. Having finished the mini now, painting a simple paint scheme was enjoyable, but the model was still a lot of fun to paint.

Latest Calth Progress

I finished the Sergeant the other day, and I'm close to completing another two marines and a third isn't far behind. I still have to do the Leadbelcher on both powerpacks for those marines.

Painting A Storm Warden

My brother came with me to the 30th Anniversary party, and he painted this Storm Warden. He's been interested in the Storm Warden's for some time, and it's always fun to do something other than First Founding or well known chapter.

Painting A Fire Angel

The 30th anniversary party that went down at Games Workshop: City Walk was a lot of fun. My brother was able to get the special 30th edition space marine. He actually got the last one the store had, so we showed up just in time.

I started to work on my space marine almost immediately. My brother and I were the first ones to begin. Eventually a handful of others had also joined us, including another set of identical twins around our age which was cool.

30 Year Anniversary Plans

Super excited about today's activities to commemorate the greatest soldiers ever created, the Space Marines. I and my brother are heading over to Games Workshop: City Walk  to celebrate. One of the main activities is getting a free Space Marine mini to paint.

Calth Progress: 2nd Tactical Marine Completed

The going has been slow, but I finished the second Ultramarine from the Calth boxed set yesterday. He is pretty much the same as the first marine, however, I turned his head to the side to give him a different look.
Completed Ultra

I think my edge highlighting is improving, or at least my confidence is growing. I was hesitant to try it at first, wary of ruining my minis because of my lack of skill, but I have been pleased with the results. Maybe in the future I can start going for the extreme highlights, an extra bright highlight on the edge of the first highlight.

Calth Progress

My brother and I were able to make tremendous progress on the Calth set, but after my surgery during the break we weren't able to get anything else done. But here's a look at the progress so far. My brother is painting the Word Bearers while I'm doing the Ultras. Most of the pictures are of the Word Bearers.
