New Legion of the Damned

Damn (no pun intended!) these are some pretty nice sculpts. It will be cool to see them on the table as a auxiliary unit, and the inevitable converted legion armies that will be showing up.

That sergeant would make a pretty good chaplain as well.

Rogue Trader Friday (Modeling): Space Marines

In conjunction with my Rogue Trader Friday post at From the Warp, I thought it would be fun to look at some of the old metal Space Marine minis from the Rogue Trader days.

I am enjoying some of the archaic poses and interesting color schemes back then.

Rogue Trader Friday (Modeling): Rhinos

As I mentioned over at "Rogue Trader Friday" on From the Warp, Im not a big fan of the old-school rhinos. The new models are much more imposing looking.

The conversions here make them almost palatable. The camouflage is tasteful and subdued, looking like something you would see in the real world of the far distant future

Nothing puts me in the mood to model and paint then when everything is in its right place. Having just moved, I was able to invest in some new storage setups and it feels good to have it all unpacked and organized.

I find it is easier to get motivated when things are neat and easily accessible.

Of course, I know when you are knee deep in a project, organization and neatness tends to go straight out the window.

And yes, my office's walls are painted Golden Yellow.

So I turn it over to you, what are your thought on organization and motivation? Any great work area setups to share?

Rogue Trader Friday (Modeling): Terminators

A great Terminator vs. Genestealer cult Diorama as a companion to "Rogue Trader Friday" at From the Warp.

Love those caution-striped terminators and the green genestealers. Reminds me of Super Mario brothers where the different colored turtles were harder/easier to kill.

Rogue Trader Friday (Modeling): Imperial Guard

Some of my favorite minatures feature as a companion to "Rogue Trader Friday" at From the Warp.

I fell in love painting miniatures by getting a great gold look on the breastplates of the officers.

My favorite was always the standard bearer with his plumed helmet.
