SOUL DRINKERS, INQUISITOR AND DEATHWATCH SPACE MARINES. YEAR: 2013



Any fan of Warhammer 40K universe can easily recognize what we are going to talk about along this post. With this new order we had to paint some Warhammer 40.000 models following the appeareance of two special Space Marine Chapters: Soul Drinkers and Deathwatch.

But firts, let's talk about this two rare Chapters:




The Soul Drinkers were a Renegade Chapter of Space Marines declared Excommunicate Traitoris by the Inquisition because of their extremely high levels of mutation and obvious corruption by Chaos, yet the Soul Drinkers still considered themselves to be loyal to the Emperor of Mankind, if not to His Imperium. The Soul Drinkers were a Second Founding Successor Chapter of the Imperial Fists Legion

The Soul Drinkers' Power Armour is purple with ornate bone and gold-colored pauldron trims and a gold Imperial Aquila or Imperialis on their breastplates.
Chapter Badge. The Soul Drinkers' Chapter badge is a golden chalice with five spirals of soul energy rising out of the top.



The Deathwatch Space Marines serve the Ordo Xenos of the Imperial Inquisition as its Chamber Militant, the warriors of last resort when the Inquisition needs access to firepower greater than the Imperial Guard or a team of its own Acolytes or even Throne Agents can provide. Across the galaxy there are innumerable hostile alien civilisations that threaten Mankind.

Unlike other Space Marines, the Deathwatch are not truly a separate Chapter of the Adeptus Astartes; rather, they are a collection of Veteran Space Marines drawn from all of the different extant Chapters who serve together in the Inquisition's service for a discrete period of time.

Now you know more about the Chapters, we want you to describe how we performed the request.
We had to paint 7 models: an Inquisitor, three Soul Drinkers and three Deathwatch marines; but first we had to remove the paint of each miniature in order to start with the painting process. Here you can see some pics:



That's how we received the miniatures.





Inquisitor before removing the paint.


Luckily we didn't have to work on the Librarian.



That's how the miniatures look after removing their previous paint.






We had to pin the Inquisitor on its base before start in order to avoid future accidents.







And finally we upload you the final results after the whole painting process. Do like them?

LIZARDMEN: CARNOSAUR. YEAR: 2013



I think I'm not wrong when I say that each fan of Warhammer knows the Lizardmen Carnosaur, one of the most popular monsters of this army.

It is well-known that Games Workshop launched a few months ago its new line of miniautres for Lizardmen, and among other models, the company resealed this Carnosaur. In our opinion, the present miniature is quite spectacular, but the previous one is great as well.

We want to say that this work has been a great labour of quick painting. We had to perform it for a specific date (a nice present for Christmas). We just can admire the skills of the painter. Of course, you can judge our work and every comment is welcome.

The base has been made with sand, tree bark and artificial shrubs.

PREVIEW: THE HOBBIT, THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG. YEAR: 2013

As we say in the title, we bring you a small preview about one of our current works.

This time, instead of announce a surprise, we want to tell you thar we are working on the new Games Workshop the Hobbit releases.
This is the first model that we have painted in our workshop. It is Tauriel, a Woodland Elf invented by Peter Jackson for his three new movies about the Hobbit.

As additional information, Tauriel is a composed name that means "Daughter of the Forest": taur (forest) + -iel ("daughter of").















Stay toned because soon we will have here the rest of the models!

Yes, you have read well! We've painted almost the whole Heroquest main box and some other models from its expansion "wizards of Morcar".

The game was released on 1989 in colaboration with Games Workshop, and it was one of the first in represent a fantasy universe. We are that most veteran players will be nostalgic. The quality of the miniatures is pretty good considering when the models were designed. ¿Do you want to come with us to the universe of Heroquest?





Here you've got the heroes of the game:

Which veteran player of Wargames does not seen at least once in his life this Orcs and Goblins?

The most powerful foe of the game: the feared Gargoyle.





And now we show you the enemies of the expansion. First here you've got the 4 wizards of Morcar:



High Mage


Necromancer



Storm Master



Orc Shaman




Additionally, this expansion set also included some Men-at-Arms: the Crossbowman, the Scout and the Halberdier.




But...that's not all! We have a few more models from other expansions:

Beastman




We also have some models from the expansion "against the Ogre Horde": 



Ogre Warrior

Hope you like our post of today and it bring you good memories. Very cool and simple models (something dificult to get) from a very good board game.

See you next time!
