Beyond the Gates of Antares: Concord

Afternoon guys and girls,

Time for another update, this time with something completely new.

Recently Nife has had all of my Horus Heresy stuff off me, after ages of trying to get fired up to paint the word bearers I finally threw the towel in. I just can't get excited about painting the stuff for it. So for once I will actually be sitting out of a project the rest of the Irregulars are working on.

Needless to say to celebrate clearing out a bunch of models I bought more.......

I have had my eye on The Beyond the Gates of Antares stuff for a while and with space freed up I took the plunge and bought the starter set. I find my interest in 40K as mentioned many times on here before to be very low so the more high sci fi look of Antares does appeal quite a lot.

So here are the first 3 Concord Strike Troopers:

I have had a lot of fun with these and have tried to weather them up quite a bit. I still have another 2 and a spotter drone to do to finish this squad. And a further 15 to finish up their half of the starter box.

I already have my eye on a few concord bits to expand the starter set but for once I will attempt to get the starter set painted before adding in anymore.


  1. The important thing is to work on what you feel is fun!

  2. Finish a project before starting more? Insanity!

    Nah, they look grand mate. It's good to hear you're having fun painting them, that's the key bit. Weathering is spot on as well, slightly grubby but still recognisably hightech and clean-ish.
