by SandWyrm


Finally finished painting the last few minis for Adepticon. Once I dull-coat them, I'll be ready.

  2. Excellent work as always!

    Now the real question is: what are those two chimera chassis in the background....

  3. As a matter of fact, I did once make a tank-painting tutorial:

    As for the chassis in the background... Well old-timers may know, but I'll let the mystery persist for a while. :)

  7. Why yes, it is a Primaris Psyker. Insofar as I'm using a Sanctioned Psyker model to represent him (cause I hate the actual model).

  8. OOh carapace armour - nice! I have the exact same psyker and priest models. I can never decide what to use the priest as though, his loadout is pretty goofy and it seems to confuse people when I have him as a regular sergeant.

    Also, are those some Hydras I spy in the background? :D

  9. I use the priest as a company standard bearer. I just love the model.

    His plasma gun is painted "burned out" so that I wouldn't have to chop it off the model for WYSIWYG at Adepticon. It's a religious relic he carries around along with the bones of an old beloved prophet-commander. The plasma gun exploded during a battle (supposedly the work of an enemy psyker), killing the prophet and injuring the priest, who now has to carry it around.

  10. As for the Hydra models in the background...

  12. Sorry, no can do Salapander.

    Mrs. Sandwyrm wants tonight off before I leave for 3 days of geeking in Chicago. Only way we could play is if you come over to the house and put up with the distraction of my kids.

  13. Sandwyrm, awesome job as always. I especially dig the set back turrets on the Chimeras. If I get a free weekend, I'm going to try that treatment to cobble together some Hydras.
