From SeanR - Bearing the Word (10 Points)

For my first entry, I've painted up 2 models from the GW Betrayal at Calth box.



Confession time - I haven't finished painting a model in years. Many years.

With the Painting Challenge and picking up the lovely Calth box minis, I thought it time to get cracking with the aim of getting the full box done by Cancon (a large gaming convention in Canberra, Aus) in late January.

So here are 2 Word Bearers Space Marines. And they were quite enjoyable to paint. Easy colours with reds, black and metal with a really simple grey underground basing to push through that wall and actually get something finished!
This should net me a whole 10 points.

Here are some more shots in true Abba fashion.



Now that I look at the last two pics I can totally see it. But which one's the Brunette? She's was my favourite...

First, welcome aboard Sean - it's great to have you with us!
I always love seeing people using the Challenge to either start, or get back into the hobby. These Marines look terrific Sean. How many do you have to get done for Cancon? I suspect we will be seeing more of these over the next few weeks? Wonderful stuff.

  4. Great stuff Sean - great "period", great setting and great work in these Word Bearers, the real "true believers", so to speak. I also like the weathering work down on the legs. That box set is a gold mine, I hope you enjoy!

  5. Thanks all!
    The aim is to get the whole box - 30 tactical marines, 5 terminators, 2 characters and 1 dreadnought - done for the gaming groups' evening games.
    So yes, the next few weeks will be mostly these guys :).

  8. How neat they look. I particularly like the dusty weathering on the legs, subtle and realistic. Welcome to the Madness.

  9. They look great Sean, now I'm even more tempted to pick up a box. They will be a winner for sure at Cancon!

  10. Great stuff Sean, especially given the length of time you've been "on the bench" so to speak. Looking forward to seeing more...

    A group of us Antipodeans are meeting up at CANCON this year. Care to join us???
