2019... Review of My Hobby Year!

Well as you may have noticed today is the 31st of December which means that it’s time for my annual look back and review of all my modelling projects over than last 12 months!

Blood Angels Terminator Librarian - Rogue Trader

After finishing last week’s Rogue Trader Terminator Captain for my nascent Blood Angels force I decided that he needed someone to keep him company in the form of a Librarian clad in Tactical Dreadnought Armour.
I always wanted one of these guys as a kid but at the time I was intimidated by the large amounts of iconography scattered all over the model (which ironically when compared to modern space marines actually seems pretty sparse!)

Blood Angels Terminator Captain - Rogue Trader

With two squads of old school 1980s Blood Angels Terminators under my belt I decided that the time had arrived to give them an equally venerable character. Theo’s fellow would be responsible for leading them on their deadly missions against the encroaching Genestealer menace!
So this week I have been working hard on painting up an original Terminator Captain (complete with auxiliary wrist mounted grenade launcher) to command these first company veterans in the field of battle... and in the narrow confines of a Space Hulk!

More Rogue Trader Era Blood Angels Terminators

As frequent readers of this blog will be aware I am something of a completionist when it comes to my hobby activities!  Thus I have spent this week finishing off the Rogue Trader Terminator Squad that I started in my last post.

These intimidating looking chaps are also clearly members of the Blood Angels Chapter (maybe even Legion); and I have tried to emulate the old ‘Eavy Metal colour scheme for this faction as far as practicable.

Second Unit of Blood Angels Terminators (1989 Originals)

This week I’ve been busy working on my 1989 Blood Angels Terminators for the first edition of Space Hulk. 

After finishing my first squad of these veterans a few weeks back I decided that I would paint another unit with identical weapon load-outs in order to match the predetermined units from the Space Hulk Missions Book.
