WIP: Nurgle Reaver Titan

Right-o, on to the big boy model I currently have on my table (well, parts of it at least). Quite obviously Chaos-y, quite obviously a Reaver Titan. Very happy to finally get my grubs on one of those. For now I just finished the interiors (sans a bit of additional dirt/grime/generally icky things, maybe a dropped cone of ice cream). Kind of daunting but a nice challenge. Hope you like the head so far!

WIP: Nurgle Heldrake

Another WIP from the Nurgle stable. Please excuse the somewhat crappy picture quality, it's basically a snapshot taken during a bad time of the day but I'm sure you can make out the essentials. 

Very interesting model right there and I have to say that I "called it" even, albeit jokingly. I can't quite recall if the name was "leaked" as well then but when I had a chat with a friend about the then upcoming codex Chaos Space Marines, we were joking around and I said they should make the flyer just a giant, fire-breathing dragon. (What can I say, I like my 40k Chaos very fantasy-ish.) Well, I was rather surprised when the first pictures of this model showed up. Hope you like it so far!

Review: 15mm Infantry Tank Mark II a.k.a. 'Matilda II'

Today we are going to take a look at a 15mm model. British, lumbering, slightly old-fashioned, doesn't like anti-air guns: it's the Matilda Mk.II.

Just dropping by for a little Yuletide sing-song and indeed for wishing all clients, fans and friends of Battle Brush Studios a very merry Christmas. 

What or how ever or indeed if at all you celebrate something these days, have a good time and enjoy. Thanks to every one of you and I'll see you soon!

WIP: Nurgle Forgefiend

Boo! It's just WIP but look at that. I liked this model ever since it's release. It's kind of fun and since I painted most of it now, I like it even more.

Obviously, it's been Nurglified a little too. Should be done soon so stay tuned and I hope that you like the WIP picture so far!

WIP: Some Infinity stuff

Today just a few snapshots of a few Infinity models I started working on during a few days of illness some weeks ago. The girl in the left I actually sculpted myself for the Hasslefree painting competition 2012. She also has some wings but I will paint those seperately.

Review: Platoon Forward

Today I would like to present you with a very interesting little thing - Platoon Forward! by Joseph Legan, available through Too Fat Lardies.

According to the tag line this PDF aims to offer "a dynamic campaign system for tactical level games". Well, let's take a look.

Rules Review: Flying Lead

In the introductionary post to WW2 month I mentioned not only reviewing miniatures this month but also looking into rules sets which are not quite as widely known. Let's be honest, there isn't much of a point in reviewing Flames of War or Bolt Action because you most likely have an opinion on those already. So without any further ado, let's instead have a look at Flying Lead, written by Rich Jones and Andrea Sfiligoi and published by Ganesha Games.

Review: Ramshackle Barn

Well, is that a glamorous title or what? Despite this I would like to talk about Renedra's Ramshackle Barn kit which was released at Salute 2013.

WIP: Van Saar Gang #3

Yup, things are starting to take shape now. The hair is mostly done, the plasma pistol was snazzed up, weapon casings are highlighted and some blue details were added to the suits. Nothing too gaudy, but good enough to have some more colour in there. I guess the next update will be the finished models.

Review: German Pioniers

World War 2 Month at Battle Brush Studios!

I am very proud to announce the first themed month here on Battle Brush Studios - December 2013 is World War Two month!

WIP: Van Saar Gang #2

Second WIP update on this project. In the picture you can see the overall colourscheme now. It's basically the classic green along with some sand yellow coloured parts for contrast and additional colour. Kinda reminds me of Corvus Belli's studio colour scheme for the Haqqislam in Infinity. Good colour scheme. Weapons are going to be black.

I'm really enjoying painting these models. Some great details, very cool and wacky style. GW at their best. ;)
