"It Is The Thirty-First Millennium."

'Under the leadership of the Immortal Emperor, the Imperium of Man has stretched out across the galaxy.'

This 28mm plastic miniature of a Space Marine is by "Games Workshop" and comes from the Warhammer: The Horus Heresy – Age of Darkness boxed set by "Games Workshop". The multi-part figure has been assembled wearing MK VI armour and will form part of a (second) ten-man strong tactical squad for my five-hundred-point Sons of Horus traitor force.

Considered to be "one of the larger Legions of the Legio Astartes", the model was initially primed with "Citadel" Sons Of Horus Green, before being heavily washed with Nuln Oil, and dry-brushed with (more) Sons Of Horus Green. I also applied some "Citadel" Abaddon Black to one of his shoulder-pads, his grenades, Bolter, chain bayonet, backpack, helmet, and the joints of his Corvus Armour.

The Space Marine's power tubes, "anti-personnel ballistic weapon", and equipment were later treated to a combination of "Vallejo" Gunmetal and "Citadel" Nuln Oil. I then gave the miniature's right shoulder-pad a single coat of "Vallejo" Heavy Sienna, before applying some "Vallejo" Gold and a splash of "Citadel" Agrax Earthshade to it. These areas were later highlighted using some additional touches of "Vallejo" Gold along the edges, iconography and rivets.

As with all my Sons of Horus I lastly applied some "Scalecolor" Speed Metal to the figure's eye lenses. These were subsequently given a lick of "Citadel" Flesh Tearers Red respectively and tidied up with some "Citadel" Abaddon Black. I also applied a couple of the many decals found on the "Games Workshop" Sons of Horus Legion transfer sheet onto the model's bare shoulder-pad and lower leg.

"Big Mr Tong" WIPs - Four Cybermen layered in "Vallejo" Gunmetal

With the Thirteenth Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge now underway, I have started focusing a fair amount of my hobby time solely upon the miniatures I want to enter into the event. Quite embarrassingly, some of these 28mm scale sculpts, such as a contingent of Nazgul by "Games Workshop" for their "Middle Earth Strategy Battle Game", were originally primed for last year's competition, so I've put several of them towards the front of my queue this time around...

In addition, I have started the push towards pigmenting a large number of 3D printed models by "Big Mr Tong", starting with a squad of five Cybermen. These "Doctor Who" monsters should be reasonably quick to complete considering that some simple dry-brushing will carry the lion's share of the work. So I'm hoping to have them finished within the next few days...
