Blood Angel Tactical Marine
Part of a Blood Angels Tactical Squad this Marine is an example of the work I can complete for you.
Skaven Warlock Engineer
A Single Piece Commission, as an important character, this Warlock Engineer warranted extra detail work to make the model stand out on the battlefield.
Studio Tyranids Army
This project log will document the construction of the studio's Warhammer 40k Tyranids army.

The first 1500 points of the army will follow a Tale of X Gamers format and will be used in an escalation league at the Chain of Command Gaming Group. This means that each month there will be a £35 budget for purchasing new units for the army except month 1 which has a £70 budget.

Army Concept

Colour Scheme
The first thing that needed to be worked out was the colour scheme that would be used for the army.

Instead of choosing one of the main Hive Fleets we decided to go with a custom paint scheme and came up with what you can see on the left.

Colour Scheme - Test Model
After the colour scheme was worked out a test model was completed using an old Hormagaunt model.
