After a few days of building.....

Note to self - sort out the rate of posting!

Apologies for the lack of posts the last few weeks, real life as usual got in the way. On the plus side i've managed to get the rest of the Sanguinary Guard built, just the Priests and Dante left to build, which im hoping to start tonight.

Im hoping to start a new series of tutorials in the next few days, across a variety of subjects - first up it'll be a guide to painting Dark Angels armour.

I'll leave the pictures to do the rest of the talking.

Back to the brushes......

Been a little too long since my last proper update, spent the last week and a half recovering from having some teeth removed under general aesthetic, loads of pain(t) killers and plenty of time sat in front of the tv.

A couple of days before the surgery I made a lazy start on the second of the Sanguinary Guard, and managed to finish it in the last couple of days. Not the best paintjob as I was (still am) a little fuzzy from the pain killers but it'll do when it's in a squad.

Decided to go a different route with the base compared to the test figure, added more rocks using small slate chips, and swapped the green static grass for some 'Highland Tufts' from Army Painter. Its a bit more fiddly to use compared to scattering static grass over the base but is much more precise. The taller grass also gives more depth to the base compared to regular static grass.

Still working on getting the rest of the army assembled (10 Sanguinary Guard, 3 Sanguinary priests and a counts-as Dante left) so i'll have some bare plastic wip's in the next few days.

Thanks for reading.
