Bloodthirster on this weeks White Dwarf cover

Pictures of the next White Dwarf have finally landed. The Bloodthirster makes itself known finally and it looks to be a towering kit. It looks huge in comparrison to the Bloodletters which are decent sized models to begin with.

It will be interesting to see how it stacks up against the Creature Caster kickstarter one (if/when it finally gets released...)

If they are of similar size they will look great on the tabletop together

Secret Weapon Tablescapes progress

Been making some good progress on my Tablescapes table this past week. Above is after the first oil wash. 

Tiles in different stages of airbrushing/washes

I've gone for a wind blown martial landscape

I did not go down the zenithal highlight route like some tutorials have done. To me they don't look right and limit options of variation with the 1x1' tiles. I like the more weathered look compared to the over highlighting.

Street tiles in the early stages. Pictured above is the airbrushing and oil washes all done before cleanup

Then prepped for road markings

Almost done. Just need to weather up the yellow road marking and then apply the burnt sienna wash to the street tiles to match the others. Yes I have already cleaned up the overspray...

Im very pleased with how the worn rusted look of the car lift and storm grates have turned out. Will be adding some additional grime to the gutters and oil/fuel stains to the roads

After the streets are done its onto the rolling fields... Here they are primed up red oxide for the martian like landscape theme. I'm looking to make these WHFB compatible as well.

New Airbrush has arrived

My new airbrush arrived over the weekend. A Custom Micron CM-B2 by Iwata

It came complete with a very nice powder-coated stainless steel case with polished end caps

With being able to buy these direct our of Japan they are as affordable as the local RRP of the High Performance series, which was what I used before (HP-BP+)

Still yet to arrive is my new quieter compressor and the other brush that will be used for undercoats/basecoats (a HP-BC+)

New paints arrived a few weeks back

Now I just have to clean up the chaos

First pictures of Harlequins emerge

Very small, very grainy but obviously a Harlequin

New Deredeo Pattern Dreadnought up for pre-prders

Forgeworld have released rules and pre-orders for their new pattern of Dreadnought

Experimental rules can be found here
 185 points for a BS5 chassis and twin linked Anvilus Autocannon array is not too shabby.
Not entirely sold on that chassis though, and that name sounds like Doritos Corn Chips...

The new paint scheme is a nod to the next HH book having Ultramarines in...
