Forums → Art, Music, and Writing → Doombreed's Warhammer 40k miniatures
Hey guys! This is my first thread in the category of Art, music and writing, where I will post the miniatures I've painted so far. They are from The Warhammer 40k universe and as far range only from standard Chaos marines to a chaos Biker (including 3 chaos terminators, A chaos terminator sorcerer, 2 chaos space marines and 2 chaos space marine bikers.)
It is a custom paint scheme not found in the codex which is made up by 3 basic Citadel colours:
Primary: Ushabti Bone
Secondary(Shoulder and leg pads): Abaddon Black
tertiary (Trim): Gehenna's Gold
The bolters are painted in the standard boltgun metal (I don't remember the new name) and the eyes are painted Khorne Red.
I am still a newbie painter but I think I can paint adequately. My goal now is to make an army fast so that I can play. I do not Intend to improve my painting technique just yet. The pictures I will post will also act as links. Click on them to see them full size.
So let's start:
The Chaos Biker:
A chaos space marine armed with a bolter:
A chaos Space Marine with Chainsword and Bolt pistol:
I hope to be updating this regularly, at least while I have some more figures to show. Maybe I can update this once per week for some time.

Holy crap. You might call yourself a newbie at painting but you're not bad at it.
Thank you. That's what most people tell me, even experienced painters. I've only recently started "washing" the miniatures with black.
Uriel the plague Shire:
And from the other side:
The good part in this model is in the conversion. The plague champion head, the banner of Nurgle, the skulls, have been fitted to give the model more of a look of a champion. He is also extensively drybrushed, to give off that Nurgle-ish decay.
Grandfather Nurgle would be very proud of you...
Thank you. He is showering me with his feculent blessings every day. The fear of Death present in all mortal creatures...is laughable
Now some of my older work. A Chaos terminator squad:
Chaos Terminator with Power Weapon and Combi Melta:
Chaos Terminator with Heavy flamer and Chainfist:
Chaos Terminator armed with twinlinked bolter and Powerfist:
As usual, the pictures will act as links, click on them to see them at full size. The Terminators leg pads are heavilly Drybrushed with Desert Yellow (old colour name) to give off a mud effect. Blood has also been painted on the chain blades, one of my older practices.
That's pretty awesome... Are you painting by hand?
Yes, I am. However I've just recently started using various techniques like "washing".
Some great work there!
Washing and drybrushing are all you need, along with a steady hand of course ;-)
A note to all: Since I have to study for my exams, I now rarely paint. I have completed 3 figures during easter vacation which I will start posting soon but I won't complete another model for some time.
