Sons of Horus Paint­ing Tuto­r­ial

This is a tuto­r­ial on how to paint epic scale (6mm) Sons of Horus.

We’ll be using some basic paint­ing tech­niques like washes and dry brush­ing for most of the steps in this tuto­r­ial. There are a cou­ple of optional steps that include more advanced blend­ing that you are free to try or skip. We’ll also be using a mix of Games Work­shop paints and Vallejo paints through­out the tuto­r­ial. Lets get started!

The Chal­lenge to Con­quer Can­cer Mini

About a week ago a game shop near where I live had an event to help raise money to fight can­cer and as part of this they put on a war­rior paint­ing competition.

The minia­tures were pro­vided from the new Reaper Bones line of super inex­pen­sive mod­els. They are decent casts and good sculpts over all but the minia­tures make is a bit out­side of the point. One really awe­some thing is that each of the minia­tures that were painted for the com­pe­ti­tion are going to be taken and given to chil­dren who are fight­ing can­cer. I hope that all of the minis brighten their day!

Ryuken-​Roku Paint­ing Tuto­r­ial

I received a request recently to detail how I painted up my Bat­tleTech vic­tor 9k in Ryuken-​Roku colors.

For the tuto­r­ial I will be using a plas­tic Vic­tor model from the CityTech boxed set. I did try to con­vert it to more closely match the metal ver­sion avail­able so if you have that model things should still fol­low pretty closely.

Impe­r­ial Navy Cruiser Paint­ing Tuto­r­ial

I was asked for a tuto­r­ial on how I painted up the cruis­ers for my Impe­r­ial Navy fleet for BFG. It’s not too com­pli­cated but it will take some time to pull off, so let’s get started.

Almost all of the BFG Impe­r­ial Navy cruis­ers can be painted up this way and you can sub­sti­tute your own paint col­ors instead of using the ones I’m using to match your own fleet. This is a rel­a­tively straight­for­ward process but it requires quite a few paints.
