Space Hulk Diorama Revisited (3)

Satchel ‘Walk In Freedom’


I’ve painted the fourth genestealer, and finished the Space Hulk backdrop now:

I’m going to adjust the Librarian a bit, as some aspects of it look a bit poor:

A few additional details, and a slightly more gloomy paint-scheme, will hopefully improve the overall atmosphere:

Along with a fourth genestealer, scrambling over the edge:

This is a bit contrived, of course; but I think melodrama is okay in a diorama.

Painting a death guard army (9) – finished

Queen Latifah ‘Rough’ 

I’ve finished the Death Guard models, now:

This maybe hasn’t been the most enthralling series of posts; but hopefully it has at least achieved the aim of demonstrating that you can paint an army, without foregoing every other aspect of your life.
