INQ28mm Paint in progress Heretek

Evening readers, time for another update and within a reasonable timescale since the last one haha

I have still got some hobbying mojo going and have been drawn back to a project I started about septemeberish last year, and that is INQ28mm.

I have decided to finally get my heretek painted up the rough idea is to get him and a retinue of 3 done in time for the Ammo Bunker Open bash in March, as Commisar Molotov who has the INQ28mm blog will be running some intro games which will be worth a look :)

So onwards to progress, the model is still heavily paint in progress but I thought I would share him with you guys to get some thoughts:

And his base:

A big thank you goes out to Mr Feral who gave me a few tips on painting the red, cheers dude. Speaking of which the red still needs a few glazes to add some shadows in the deepest recesses.

I'm thinking of possible adding some hazard stripes to the base to break up the solid metal tones, as it looks a little boring at the moment.

Also welcome to new follower Munky, cheers for the support dude

First finished model of 2012

Morning readers hope you all had a good New Year and Christmas Period :-) its time for my first update of 2012:

As most of you know my mojo and interest for the hobby is pretty much gone and this year shall likely be incredibly slow model wise. However the past few days I have actually had a small bit of interest come back and have managed to finish a single marine for my Steel Praetorians Chapter:

Taken me about 3 days on and off to paint him, rather pleased with how he has turned out just need to decide on a chapter symbol for them so as it can go on his left shoulder pad. The suggest of a friend was to find a symbol the Roman Praetorian Guard used and simply modify that, so I think that is the dirrection I shall head in.

You will probably see a tatical squad of these guys get slowly painted up over the next few months, if my interest holds that is. As such my previous post with a list of things to do in the new year has gone out the window my main aim now is to finish at least 15 models during the course of the year a low number I know but I think even this few will be a struggle :-(

Also on the painting front I have begun to paint a Lunar Class Cruiser for BFG:

Its heavily WiP but is rather straight forward just loads of dry brushing and then I will pick out details like guns as well as adding some fine details like windows, some of which are on that picture (the white dots)

Well thats it for now hopefully there wont be massive gaps between updates, I shall try and get back into the habit of posting on here even if the updates will just be text or the odd sketch or something.

Before I go welcome to new follower Elotsip, cheers for the support dude :)
