Painting Up-date (April-June)

Well I’ve been stuck at home since the end of March, which has meant I’ve managed to get plethora of miniatures painted. On the 28mm side of things I’ve painted 97 miniatures along with built and painted 6 pieces of terrain and finally built the Stoic Arms by 4Ground.

Painting the Death Guard Myphitic Blight-Hauler

The Myphitic Blight-hauler is a light Daemon Engine that provides the Death Guard with heavy firepower wherever it is needed. Resembling a Bloat-drone that has been stripped of its turbines, this strange machine has heavy weapons mounted on its carapace, and its rusting armored plates can absorb impressive punishment – as can its blubbery exposed flesh-parts, which soak up appalling trauma.

Hit the Beach Flames of War

Recently I decided to jump into playing WW2 in 15mm, yeah, I picked up a copy of Hit the Beach by Battlefront Games. Playing and painting this scale will be a new challenge for me as I’ve never gone below 20mm before, yet this year I’ve started by Team Yankee and now Flames of War. I’ve always been tempted in the past but the combination of resin and metal parts had always put me off getting into the game, but with the push towards more plastic I decided to bite the bullet and grab a copy of the starter set.
