Hey everyone ! Sometimes a painter needs a little break and a good hobby hug in his comfort zone. Mine are definitely somewhere in the arms of Jes Goodwin models or Kev Adams's so after painting a lot of models from my desk and requirements for Blackstone fortress, I felt like fueling my mojo up with some classics and I opted for some bad ass ork nobz from Kev Adams. This will make my orkish force grow even more and the colours are a no brainer since I'll just replicate the same old recipes on this colourful project!

Hey folks, here's an odd one again !
You might remember me painting a fan sculpt of Ymgarl Genestealer earlier, well I was lucky enough to get a clear resin cast of it !
How awesome is that ? Very much indeed.

Well hello there ! Today's post is rather special because I'm ticking several items from the bucket list at once !
I'm on the verge of turning 40 and 1994 was a formative year for me in terms of music, comics and models but amongst a few gut punches, I remember Titan Legions was one of those obsessions for me along listening to Infectious Grooves :
The gigantic robots, the completely insane cover box, that was pushing all of young JB's buttons like few things had before. I had a love at first sight with warlord titans in the early 90's like any sane kid but I just never got a box of any and I decided to spend my limited funds on blisters of chaos goodness bit by bit.

Hey everyone ! A little more Blackstone fortress again !
Those groups of 4 villains have been extremely rewarding lately, a great achievement/effort ratio and therefore perfect hobby mojo boosters so I've continued with the beastmen.
These guys might not look like the pick of the box amongst all the wonderful models available but I've quickly grown fond of them and how very smart the design is.

Ok so still ploughing the Blackstone Fortress thread it seems and after finishing a few villains, I finally managed to get some of the colours I needed to finish Amallyn at last !
Note for later pandemics : you do NOT want to start a lockdown without some of the essentials like medium or some washes and you do NOT want to start with a colour when all your pots are partly dry...

Hey all ! So what do we have here today ? Well a few more opponents for Blackstone Fortress (there are still 75% left to paint out of that box so expect some more !)
So, spindle drones ! They're the enigmatic (so far, haven't played or read much, don't want spoilers please) sentries of the Fortress, pretty expressionless and yet intriguing and menacing.
We know they're equally organic and mechanical but I wanted to make them look entirely different from the Ur-ghuls so went for something aged and military so to speak and what better inspiration than the great Hayao Miyazaki himself ! It might be a bit far fetched but that's what I had in mind anyway !
I quite like working on those very small batches of villains, 4 of them are almost 10% of the content and it's a number one can paint rapidly enough !

Hey all ! So I've finally managed to start paintig villains for Blackstone Fortress ! Yeah !
I'm totally nowhere near being able to play with fully painted models for now but that's still one step closer so I'm more than fine. To get the juices flowing, I thought I'd start with a group I could do real fast and with little hassle so I picked the Ur-ghuls.

Alright people, so here's a new character for BSF ! I've decided to look at the Xenos and prepared both Dahyak and Ammallyn but running out of some colours means Dahyak got to the finish line first !
This is the first Kroot I've ever painted and I have to admit I discover this race and their anatomy as I went. I have to say I quite fancy this understated pose and real pro look of him, there's the strong and silent type quality you find in Eastwood cowboy characters or a certain mandalorian.
