12/17/14: Finished: Iron Hands Storm Eagle

Howdy folks!

Been keeping busy this week, especially with the holidays approaching, but I've still found time to get paint on models! I've got a Brother Captain Stern I finished for a friend I should be posting in a day or two, but this time, we've got a Storm Eagle, done in Iron Hands livery! Lots of fun working on this guy, even if assembling these bad boys are a pain in the ass!

The monster is already laying the smack down on some Nurgle Chaos Marines!

Opted for a purple accent color on this bad boy, along with white to help break up all the black.

Games Workshop needs to get on making some Iron Hands transfers; as much as I love the Forge World ones, some easier to obtain ones would be so much nicer!

Gotta love those Rhino doors!

I had a lot of fun working on this model, though black isn't necessarily my first choice for an overarching color theme! 

I've got the rest of this month on the slower side due to the holidays, but I've got a couple personal projects I want to try and get through in that time. Expect some little one-off projects and things in the next two weeks! 

Stay tuned too, I'm going to try and start running more contests and things through my social media outlets! Very exciting!

12/14/14: Finished: Menoth Unit Commission; Smells Like Instagram!

Howdy folks!

Still trucking along as always, this time around we've got a duo of Menoth units to match the previous Menoth Warmachine work I've done!

Definitely an interesting break from weathering vehicles and painting plasma guns! Speaking of which, next up on the table is a Storm Eagle, fit to serve the sons of Ferrus Mannus! Taking a little break for the holidays too, so I should be getting some work done on my Imperial Fists. Then its onto Space Wolves, Knights, and the new year! 

Also! Smells Like Wargaming is now on Instagram! You can find us at here; I've been posting a lot of stuff, including my first game of 7th Edition 40k over there, so be sure to give us a follow! Also planning some contests soon, so be sure to follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook!

12/8/14: Finished: Tempestus Scions Strikeforce Commission

Howdy folks!

This time, we have a commission of Tempestus Scions, done in Lambdan Lions scheme, to show off! The desert scheme allowed me to opt for a dusty, gritty, weathered scheme, while still allowing the models to pop with the blues and other splashes of color!

"Steady on boys....GO!"

Lots of fun with this commission, and you can start to see my new terrain set up I've been working on for the studio! Actually getting my first game of 7th Edition 40k on it this week, so I'm excited to get more work done on it!

Alrighty! Next up are some Menoth additions, as well as an Iron Hands Storm Eagle! Very excited, so stay tuned!

11/30/14: Finished: Lorgar, Primarch of the Word Bearers

You bear that Word Lorgar!

Hey guys! This was commissioned by a previous client hoping to get his buddy into playing 30k with them. I would certainly hope this model will get him building a Word Bearers army in no time!

I love the character that Forge World puts into the faces of their models, and the Horus Heresy line is no exception!

The back comes off to allow you to remove the model from the scenic base.

And scale next to an Astra Militarum Commissar; he's no Vulkan, but he's still massive!

Loving working on the Primarchs! You can see the Vulkan I finished recently HERE! Can't wait to do more of them, personally waiting for Rogal Dorn, but I may have to pick up Horus.... 

Don't forget that if you've got a Primarch (or anything, for that matter) that needs the SLW touch, to drop us an email at SmellsLikeWargaming at hotmail dot com, or drop us a message on our Facebook or our Twitter! Currently running $100 Primarch commissions, which includes everything to get him ready for the battlefield!

Currently have an army of Lambdan Lion Scions marching across the paint desk, but after that should be more Warmachine and Necrons! Also been working on my new scenic displays/gaming boards, so I'll try and get pictures of that soon!

11/19/14: Finished: House Raven/Legio Metalica Add-On Commission

Howdy folks!

It's been a busy week! This time, we've got a couple of Knight Titans and some additional Warhound arms! For those of you who don't know, this is an add-on to a series of commissions I completed in May and in August. I've included pictures of these commissions at the end! Anyways, you're here for pictures! So....

The Questoris Knight Magaera was a ton of fun to work on and is easily my favorite model in the group!

Keeping with the Three Musketeers theme across them! Thank you Sparknotes!

The Flamer on the Achaeron is a monster! I opted for more hazard stripes and more black on the base and soot weathering to make him look like he's been doing some BBQing!

'A Champion on Armageddon, Planchet regularly accompanied clean-up squads and cityfighting. His kill-banner records the death of two Stompas, Gaze of Gork and Da Krumper, as well as quintet of Morkanauts and Gorkanauts.'

More Warhound arms! The client now has 2 Plasma Blastguns, 2 Turbo Laser Destructors, a Vulkan Megabolter, and the Inferno Cannon! 

And, to put everything in context, here's the rest of his army!

I believe this puts the Smells Like Knight Titans counter over 20 now! Like our work? Have a Knight (or anything for that matter) that needs some painting TLC? Drop us an email at SmellsLikeWargaming at Hotmail dot com, and we'll get you on your way!

Next up is an army of Tempestus Scions, as well as another Primarch! 

Stay tuned!
