Magnus & the Mages

Tom‘s Kill Team is finished! He wanted “tanky mages,” so GK was the obvious choice. Plus I think the models look great.

I painted Magnus the justicar to a higher standard and gave him some extra details to add interest. The standard Grey Knights feature a very simple color scheme but I think it looks great, especially on the tabletop.

These came together in one day after I got them basecoated with the airbrush. Lots of fun, too.

It’s the cleaning, and the assembly, and the priming, and the basecoating that I hate!

On an unrelated note, I sure wish I knew how to shrink images without losing resolution. Shouldn’t it work the other way?

Demon Hunters

Everyone’s favorite demon-smiting magic spacemen have entered the Chapel!

I’ve been plugging away at these behind the scenes, on the off chance that Tom checks the blog! These are a gift for him. I don’t have the time for my usual conversions and so on, because Tom needs his troops and fast!

Four are straight out of the box, but they’re still a real pain to assemble. Really strange set of parts in there, to be honest!

The justicar, the leader of the team, has got a converted warding stave, a Deathwatch =I= shoulder pad to match the Grey Knights pad on the left, and a cool little standard from the GK terminators box. He also has a face for extra awesome.

Hopefully I can turn this project around soon. Never painted Grey Knights before, but they seem super easy to get to a decent standard.

As my mother always says, famous last words…
