Nameless Guard

I am slowly rebuilding my gallery. Over the next days, weeks and maybe months you will be bombarded with pics  of minis I have painted over the years.

Nameless Guard was a special project, my attempt to have a fully painted army – something I have never achieved.

It took me few months of heavy work, but I have succeeded. The army was based on Death Guard / Plague Marines models and a sacred Nurgle’s number (7).

7 units, each with 7 models, plus a chaos lord Nameless making for a total of 50 miniatures.  On top of that, 7 war machines. Most of them are converted.

Some of these you can see in this post. Here’s the link to the full gallery of the Nameless Guard.

If you wish to learn more how this army came to life, there’s a thread on Chest of Colors forum.

And if you wish to take this army to battlefields of the 40th century, contact me. It’s not brand new but it has never been used and is ready for sale!

Painting with the young ones: Sowing the seeds

It’s not my ambition to make my son a painter. It’s much easier to make a painting meeting when he also feels like joining us though. He looks up to my friends rather than to me, so he remains more focused and involved in their company. Also testing their tolerance to pink hairbands in dwarf beards and shields in a matching color, or a metallic purple axe for an ork…

Painting with the young ones – see the two kids enjoying our hobby? 🙂

And I sit and forgive it all, loving him. 😉

Do you have similar experience? Do you try to get your kids into the miniature painting hobby?

Knife thrower and other new faces in the Circus Troupe!

Do you remember the old post, in which I introduced the Circus Troupe that I had painted? Now some new faces join the troupe!

New troupe members

First, we have a Knife thrower with assistant:

Then there’s the Animal tamer and beasts:

Later we have a smaller model – the Arlequin. But does the size make him any less interesting?

Finally there’s the big thing that I saved for last. The Ropewalkers are a larger scenic piece, including two miniatures and a scenic base.

It’s been the largest model in the whole Circus Troupe project so far, but how can we be sure that there won’t be anything that can beat the size in future? 😉
