Malfoy Family

Malfoy Family
Another day, and more inroads into my collection of models from the evil side of Knight Models Harry Potter miniatures game. Not exactly how I expected to spend the last couple of days, but then the box is almost empty now.

Two nasty pieces of work.

Never ever stop when you are in the zone. I don't really know why I am juggernaughting through all these harry potter miniatures. However I am now pretty close to getting all my evil side ones done and getting stuff crossed off the list is always good. 

I have to have a little moan about this sculpt though. The Dementor here is just really really bad. I mean I get that he's kind of formless but you can basically see the lumps of putty in it's spooky robes. It was also as I'm sure you can imagine pretty miserable to paint. Highlight black. Paint some hands. Done.
Dolores Umbridge

Oh man what. Why did they have to sculpt Umbridge wearing that coat cloak thing with the weird black pattern on. She has other all pink outfits that would have been far easier to paint. I tried. I tried. I probably ruined a subtly shaded and highlighted pink in order to do it. This is the kind of rubbish you don't have to put up with when you are dealing with intellectual property designed from the ground up to be part of a miniatures game, that crops up from time to time when you are dealing with something that was originally a film or TV show. I think I did a good job on the face, which hopefully takes away from the horrible cack handed effort on the pattern. Maybe.

Voldemort (and some acromantulas)

Lord Voldemort
Sometimes you don't paint something because it's massively intimidating and you are afraid you will muck it up. However, after much thought I finally worked out how I was going to paint this guy.

Tempestus Scion Kill Team

Kill Team (with two commanders)
So what I have is an essentially an inability to stick to any one project. for every long. Or so attest the one painted miniature from Blackstone Fortress, the half a box of unpainted miniatures from the Harry Potter miniatures game and of course, my recently stripped and re-undercoated sisters of battle army. However in the February Half term my local Games Workshop is running a Kill Team tournament. I figured I would paint up a new Kill Team for the occasions and I happened to receive the Tempestus Scions kill team starter box for Christmas.

Sister Hospitaller

Sister Hospitaller
The new Adepta Sororitas list in Chapter Approved 2018 has me really excited about my favorite army. In the absence of any new models I have decided to strip and repaint most of my infantry.

Over the last three days or so I painted Taddeus the Purifier from Blackstone Fortress.

Sisters of Battle new army list review.

Sisters of battle army list review: Chapter approved 2018

I don’t often do tactical reviews on here – I’m mostly about painting cool models. However I do love the Sisters of Battle, and so here are my initial thoughts on the Beta codex. Unless you play a lot of 40k, the rest of this post is going to be fairly incomprehensible.
