Painting Challenge Finished

Hi all,

So today marks the end of the first challenge of the year between here on Sign of the Aquila. This time round it was a pick something you know the other has and would like to see them paint. So for me, Blackmane picked Shadowsun, a model he picked up for me years ago and I picked for Blackmane to paint up his recently acquired Branchwych.

So below you can find the completed models for you to have a look at and decide which you think deserves to win this painting challenge. 

First up my Commander Shadowsun.

Tau Workshop: Finished Heavy Bombardment Hammerhead

Hi all,

Im back again on my Tau streak this time with the finished Heavy Bombardment Hammerhead. It has taken a couple of weeks working on it a little at a time, but I can honestly say Im happy with it!

Tau Heavy Bombardment Hammerhead WIP

Hi all,

Back with the second update of my Tau extravaganza, this time I'm working on my first Hammerhead, equiped with 2 high yield missile pods and a smart missile system, the TX7 Heavy Bombardment Hammerhead Gunship. I really hope they come up with a catchier name for it eventually like..... Blackreef or Sturgeon or something.... Any way on with the pictures......

For Sigmar!: Prosecutors and Liberators

Hi all.

Today I bring some pictures of a couple of squads I finished just before christmas as part of a push to finish the Stormcast I had from the starter set. The first to be finished were prosecutors and they were swiftly followed by the liberators. I will point out that the liberators aren't technically the ones from the starter. They are a third squad I assmebled from a liberator quick build box and a couple of liberators from the getting started with AoS magazine thing. I didn't really realise this as I dived into them so in my mind I had to change my challenge to 'finish an equivalent amount of stormcast from the starter set'.

Anyway lets get to the pictures.

New Year, New Painting Challenge

Hi all.

So with the new year now here and 6 days in, myself and Zebulon have settled on our first challenge. We've been having quite the discussion about challenges since our last one, for various reasons, and so in the not too distant future we'll be doing something we've not done before. For now though we kick off this year's challenges with a good, simple, painting challenge.

Tau Terrain WIP

All rights to the original creator for the awesome piece

Hi all,

Here's the first update of my slue of Tau goodness! I've started to look at making a few bits of Terrain to go with my force, inbetween painting my Riptide.

A Tau-riffic year!

Happy New Year all!

It was a pretty quiet month from myself and Blackmane hobby wise because of work and Christmas and the like. Though I did manage to squeeze in a 2000pt game just before. I dusted off my Tau and filled the field with them, but this time the Greater Good was turned back by some tenacious Grey Knights.

I love my Tau, I love the aesthetic and the way they are totally opposite the grim dark of the Imperium. Over the last few years Blackmane has done me some excellent models to go with my force but they don't see the field as much as I'd like.
