3rd Blood Angels Assault Squad

The third and final assault squad in the Blood Angels army I'm working on. As ever you can click the images for a larger view. Bear in mind these are TABLETOP pieces, not competition grade, so things aren't quite as tight as I might have done them if I were devoting more time to it. I may go back and revisit all the chainswords in the whole army in the final tweaks phase to add some wear and tear, it's been noted they're a bit clean at the moment...

Shoulder pad detail sculpts by Chris Straw

A quick job by Chris Straw to sculpt insignia discs and laurel wreaths onto some Forge World Tartaros pattern Terminator shoulder pads. These will be sent as-is to the client.

We don't just do painting, y'see. As usual, you can click the image for a larger view.

Bushido Commission completed

Chris has completed the Bushido commision now. These pictures are of the varnished, ready product. I've not really had the time to retake the previous pics to a good enough standard (really need to get a decent photo studio set up), but they're all the same finish (Windsor & Newton Galleria Satin). I find this is about the nicest general-purpose varnish; keeps the colour saturation up and isn't too glossy. I think the Samurai above is one of my favourite ever miniatures. Really nice (and my, he is a big chap!). As usual, click the images for a larger view...

Bushido Commission WIP

A collection of Bushido miniatures painted by Chris Straw. As usual we've er, pushed (yes I think that makes it sound deliberate) the bounds of tabletop level work; we don't let stuff out that we wouldn't be happy to put on a table ourselves. There's another few miniatures to go on this job before I (Maz) finish off the photography and varnishing...
