20 years ago I used to love painting "little metal men" and playing the very first edition of what was to become the hugely successful Warhammer 40K game, so recently I decided to revisit my youth. So far this has consisted of going out and buying some minis, and then wonderful-wife going out and buying ALL THE MINIS IN THE WORLD, and a selection of paints and brushes. With a couple of hours each weekend to paint them, this is going to take a while. There they sit in the corner now... looking at me... judging me... Anyway, one thing that I've found motivational is the wealth of pictures and "how to" guides on other painters' blogs, so I decided to post some of my own humble efforts here. Hope you like 'em.

Chaplain in Terminator Armour

Arguably one of GW's most bad-ass looking miniatures, and a joy to paint. I've tried to be a little more elaborate with the basing here too (but not too much).


  1. The shading on the skull is great dude. I also especially like the grip on the mace, the colors have come out real well in the picture.

  2. Thanks Radical - I think I'll always look for an opportunity to field this guy whenever I get the chance. He looks nice and threatening so he'll draw fire quite well!
