Space Fleet - Full tyrannid force

AAAhhhh, the sense of achievement when you finally finish an army ! It's been a very long time since I last tasted that sweet taste. And It's probably the first time in my life I've managed to make it happen in a day !

You might recognise those from an earlier post where I was shamelessly showing off bare lead and exposing plans for the future... Well Thantsants' report about his Space Fleet games at BOYL were enough to ignite a fire in my heart.

Space fleet is a very dear subject to me as I've already said HERE and HERE and for some reason I've decided to start with my Tyrannid fleet.

Trooper and Magus - Genestealer hybrids

Following my last post about the limited edition hybrids, here's a couple of new models from a bigger set. If you are wondering about what these sculpts are, well, they're brand new and sculpted by Bob "Patriarch" Olley. I cannot tell you all about it for now but believe me there are some very very nice models in this project, definitely must haves for any old school enthusiast and Hybrid lover.

Undead astronauts

OK, I have to say last Saturday was a VERY exceptionnal day for me. I took full advantages of a shitty weather and a sore feet from too much sport the day before and I engaged myself in a painting marathon. This marathon was made more than enjoyable by skyping with Paul and Colin, and I have to say being able to talk non-sense (even though I'm the silent one due to language) and seeing other people lick their brushes was a real pleasure and help as we managed to sit for 6 hours straight (almost).
This means I managed to finish 10 models in a day. The first 5 being the INTERNAL OGRANS BROFIST from last time.

Now here's something a little different, it's a little more in line with my zombies from earlier.

Internal Organs Brofist - Death metal band of the future

For some reason, Heavy Metal and painting are completely linked in my head. Well, actually Heavy Metal, miniatures and comic books are sort of a Holy trinity for me. I've already talked about my passion for comic books from the occidental side and the oriental side before so let me develop the musical side a bit.

The rise of the Cult - Genestealer hybrids

This project here has been growing for long time really. It's taken quite a while to gather a good load of models and it's taken another good while to get started on them.
I wouldn't have got round to them actually if it wasn't for an offer I simply couldn't refuse/resist. You'll know a bit more about it but let's get back to our main topic here.
Go back a couple of years back and I got lucky enough to take part in a private commission project that saw the release of a few Genestealer hybrids that filled a few gaps in the blank space GW had forgotten in the old days. Those were mostly sculpted by no other than Bob Olley. I think about 50 sets were made at the time so if you're looking for those... well... I advise you to just fall back to the good old ones or the new excellent ones  released in Overkill.

Ork weirdboy and handlers

I suppose it's been the same for many of us but this beginning of a new school year has been an utter catastrophe for my painting time for me. Working on a big project also requires some inertia and motivation so being force to stall midway is not exactly the most helpful way to do things.
Like every time I need to get back to something, I do something else first, just to restart the engines and warm up a bit.

This time, the model almost chose itself. Last time I had the pleasure to visit my pal Goulven, the poor guy didn't bear to see me winning (in a scenario where noone has never won while playing the orks) and he forced me to go back home with this model to punish me :

Models through another Prism(a)...

My favourite "creation" (I mean creation as in import photo / add filter)

Sometimes, spare time is used for great achievements and sometimes it's not so much. Sometimes it's even worse and it's spent playing with a smartphone and this can lead to the purpose of this post.

Following Blue's exemple, I played a bit with Prisma, a free app for your smartphones (unless you have a bloody Googlephone) that let's you tweak pictures in a simple and very effective way.

The doctor is in ! - Mad doctor for 40k

OK, I've been working on a project lately which has proven to take more time and energy than anticipated so I've decided to treat myself with a candy model just for fun.
See, I often read about hobby burn outs but it seems to me that generally doesn't come from a lack of pleasure more than anything. Just to break the monotony of working on many models at once, getting a stand alone out just for fun makes you complete something which is the kind of rewarding feeling that fuels me at least.

So while you'll have to wait a bit for this bigger project, here's what I decided to do.
