Imperial Guardsman August 2012

Hi guys! It's been quite a break since I did much miniature painting, especially since I did any 40k stuff, and I'm back in a mini making mood at the moment.

I'm trying to spice up my hobby a bit by working on a figure at a time, alternating between the different games I play (40k, Lord of the Rings, Battletech, Doctor Who, etc), so I don't feel bogged down by painting the same thing over and over again.

I'm spending a fair bit more time on each figure now too, instead of batch painting big groups of figures. Anyway, I hadn't tried out the new range of Games Workshop miniatures paints on any 40k figures yet, so I tried out the new colour range with an Imperial Guardsman.

When working on some LOTR figures, and learning to paint better, I got some better brushes too, so I was able to have more detail on the model than my previous 40k models had :)

(though it's still the basic Green and Gold paint scheme, now there's highlighting, etc.)


  1. Looking good, basing them too at the same time?

    1. Thanks! Yes, basing them too - just gravel flock. I'll maybe add bits of grass at a later date.
