Plastic Lord of Change

The new plastic Lord of Change from Games Workshop is a beautiful miniature. I bought two of them so I can make one as Fateweaver. I have built and painted the first one as a regular Lord of Change Below you can see how his size compares to other larger citadel miniatures   Save...

Magnus The Red

My second favourite GW release of 2016 after Alarielle was Magnus the Red. He is the first daemon Primarch we have seen in Warhammer 40,000 and the model certainly does him justice. I didn’t really like the silver armour GW painted on him so I opted for an ivory scheme instead. This was painted with Ulthuan grey before being given a Burnt Umber oil wash and then highlighted back up again with Ulthuan Grey and then White...

Kharn The Betrayer

It was great to see GW release an updated version of Kharn the Betrayer. With Ahriman also released this weekend I can but hope these are just the start of seeing all the chaos space marine special characters receiving new...

Konrad Curze

I’ve been really terrible lately in regards to updating this blog. I’ve been painting many different things lately and I will try to post as much as I can remember to. You can of course always head on down to the Bitzbox Instagram page where I share most of my painted minis. The latest Primarch model in my collection that I’ve painted is Konrad...

Fulgrim The Illuminator

So updates may be few and far between these days but I am happy that I can finally share with you Fulgrim, the Primarch of The Emperor’s Children. He has taken a while to paint but I’m very happy with the...

Plastic Bloodthirster!

As a massive fan of Chaos Space Marines and especially Khorne I just had to pick up the awesome new Bloodthirster from Games Workshop. I’ve been in a bit of a painting slump lately and this model has certainly taken me out of...

Forgeworld Calas Typhon

I’ve had the model of Calas Typhon from the Forgeworld Horus Heresy collectors series sitting around for a while now. After watching a tutorial about painting a white marble effect I wanted to try it out myself so I used this model to experiment on. I’m really happy with the end result on the armour. Once the armour was completed I managed to paint the rest of him fairly quickly. There’s a lot of details on this model and it’s base but most of it is either armour or metal which made painting him a lot...

Khorne Dogs Part 3: Juggernauts!...

So to go with my lord on Juggernaut will be several Juggernauts of Khorne which will count as Thunderwolf Calvary. In total I have six of them, two of which have lightning claws, two have axes and storm shields and  two will have power fists and storm shields. These are the first three that I have completed....

Nurgle Putrid Blightkings…. on round bases?...

Here are some of the new Nurgle Putrid Blightking models that I recently finished painting. I love these models but I do not collect Chaos in Warhammer Fantasy so I thought I would use them in 40K instead. They may be used to represent Nurgle Spawn or something from the renegades list such as Brutes or Orgryns. They are smaller than Ogryns but are on the same size base so should still work. I enjoyed painting these models but I’m glad to finally have them...

Khorne Dogs Part 1: Murderfang and Blood Claws...

With the release of the new Space Wolves codex I was immediately tempted to make a Khorne army based on their rules. I had heard of people doing this before and after reading the codex I knew I could make a list that would feel Khornate and play the way Khorne should, even more so than a Khorne army made with the Chaos Space Marine book. Plus the thought of Juggernaut riders counting as Thunderwolf Cavalry is just too cool to pass up (you’ll see them in the future). The first models for this army that I have painted are a squad of blood claws, made using various Forgeworld parts and a Murderfang made from the World Eaters contemptor dreadnought, also from Forgeworld. I wanted the blood claws to have a bit more of a gladiatorial feel to them, and based their appearance of this model from the Chaos Fantasy...

Miniwargaming Commissions – Chaos Space Marines

Another recent commission I did for Miniwargaming were a few Chaos Space Marine models. These were only old models that required being repainted at tabletop level so they are by no means my best work but good enough for the tabletop and for their batreps. Once again Matt and Dave were happy with these so that’s all that matters. In total I painted 4 Havocs and 14 chosen (not all...

What’s On The Desk – July 1st 2014...

It’s time for another look at what’s on my desk. I have so much planned for the coming weeks and months including expanding on my Ork force which has been pretty dormant for some time now. No surprise that with the release of the new codex I shall be dusting off some old miniatures and adding some new ones to my force. I am also doing more work on my Eldar Exodites army. This is one army that I’m really excited about as every single model will be converted in it and I have loads of ideas for future...

Blood for the Blood God!

The blog has been pretty quiet lately as I’ve been working on some big projects which you’ll be seeing over the coming weeks. Consider this period the calm before the storm. Anyway I thought I would dig out some old models of mine that I am quite fond of. These models represent the small Khorne faction of my Chaos Space Marine army. These, and my brass scorpion are all I have for Khorne if you don’t count my Daemons but I eventually hope to have lots of units for each of the four gods. First up is the Khorne Lord Skyrak the Slaughterer who I’ve shown on this blog before in the past. I love this conversion and his back story. I am currently planning different variations of this character, including a power armoured version, pre heresy version and a small diorama with him in. Next up are my Khorne Berzerkers. These guys are made up mainly from the Forgeworld World Eater conversion parts but I use legs from the Space Marine Assault Squad as well as various chain axes and trophy racks. I wanted each model to have his own trophy rack and chain axe. The armour for all my Khorne models is a very deep red that I prefer over the traditional brighter scheme. Lastly is Kharn the Betrayer. It’s amazing to think how old his miniature is but I personally think it still looks great. That said I wouldn’t mind seeing him redone with as much detail and as good a pose as his Forgeworld...

On The Desk May 31st 2014...

I’ve decided to start a small series where every few weeks or show I share with you guys a small video showing what I’m currently working on. As you can see from this video I have so much on my desk at the moment that I’m working on, hence why the blog hasn’t been updated for a short...

Kakophoni Noise Marines

Here is a small Noise Marine squad converted from the Forgeworld Emperors Children Kakophoni models (which are essentially early Noise Marines). The champions was converted from a model from the Palatine Blades set with a few bits and pieces added. The Blastmaster was converted by adding a finecast Sonic Blaster onto the end of the Cacophony...

How To Paint Sons of Horus Armour...

In this tutorial I will show you a super quick and effective way of painting that sea green colour for the Sons of Horus Space Marines from the Horus Heresy. I started off with a black undercoat and then applied a layer of Dawnstone (GW Layer) to every armoured part of the model I wanted to be green. I then highlighted the armour with Administratum Grey (GW layer) by drybrushing the whole model. Now on to get that green colour. Apply a wash of Coelia Greenshade (GW Shade) to all the armour parts. You may wish to keep it at this stage but I prefer a slightly darker green for these so I then applied another coat of Coelia Greenshade to the model and it really is as quick and as simple as that! Below is the completed...

How to Paint a Plague Marine Quickly...

In this tutorial I will show you how I paint my Plague Marines, and all my nurgle themed power armoured models. This is quite a quick and easy way to paint them but the results are quite effective in my opinion. This method uses the same technique that I mentioned a few posts back which is using washes for basecoating. For these models I used inks from the Vallejo Game Ink range. After giving the model an undercoat of white and letting it dry I applied a wash of Game Ink Sepia all over the model. Once this was dry I did the same with Game Ink Black Green but left the boltgun the sepia colour.   The silver trim was very simply painted with Abaddon Black followed by Ironbreaker and then given a wash of Nuln Oil. I decided to paint the details on the shoulder pads in Orange to make them stand out and also look a bit rusted. These were given a basecoat of Skraag Brown and then highlighted with Troll Slayer Orange. The pipes were painted with Screaming Skull and washed with Agrax Earthshade. The eyes were painted with Evil Sunz Scarlett.  ...

Showcase: Khorne Lord In Terminator Armour...

Every now and then I will showcase some of my favourite miniatures from my collection that I have painted over the years. I thought I would start off with my Khorne Lord in Terminator armour. This guy represents the character Scyrak The Slaughterer from Citadel Journal, a character I’ve always been a fan of. He is my favourite model from my every growing Chaos Space Marine...
