Celebrating 30 years of Grimdark!

Video review

I really like this mini.

Was it necessary? No!

Am I glad that it was made? Yes!

What else would you have had them release for the 30th anniversary of Warhammer 40k?

An exclusive Chaos Space Marine? A super kitted out Ork warboss? Maybe a special edition Commissar Cain???

Nope! We’re riding this Primaris train til the wheels fall off, baby!

Seriously, I dig it. The audacity of dropping a special edition figure that looks like every other Primaris figure is just so GW, I can’t be mad at them!

If only it was in Finecast…

Beautiful, deadly, and one heckuva dancer.

If you are working with Finecast, like myself, don’t worry!

A little cleaning and a couple coats of primer will give you a great bunch of minis to paint up.

Finecast issues aside, let’s talk about the Howling Banshees sculpts.

There are basically three poses that the six Banshees come in:

  • Crane kick and aiming the pistol (like in the picture)
  • Crane kick with pistol up, looking to the left
  • Crane kick with pistol up looking to the right

There’s also the Exarch, but I don’t count her, as she’s basically on one leg, like the others, except she’s jumping off a space marine helmet.

Because the posing is so limited, you really want to keep you lines clean and your colors blended!

The hair is great because it’s so textured. You can drybrush the hair with successively brighter red/orange colors, or you can highlight individual strands by picking each one out with a finely tipped brush.

Either works (I hate dry brushing hair so I’ll always paint each strand, if I can!), and it’s really up to the painter’s preference which technique to use.

I am using the Ulthwe color scheme for this commission, so I actually painted the model black and picked out the armor in Rakarth Flesh, rather than basecoating in bone colors and having to pick out the bodysuit in black.

Again, either way is perfectly fine to begin your Banshees.

Primaris Apothecary Review

The doctor is in!

There is something so great about this miniature. As a painter and hobbyist I really am looking forward to painting him up! The sculpt is gorgeous, I really dig the needle gum, and the pose tells an intriguing little narrative. Like a mini diorama, we see the Apothecary standing over a fallen marine whom he has just ‘harvested’, taking the gene seed from his fallen brother.

Stuff like that is so much more interesting than just having a model standing with legs spread, possibly standing on a rock or Orc/Chaos Marine skull, holding up a sword and screaming.

Kudos on this one, GW!

Space Marine Primaris Librarian Review

Read a book, get swole!

I love the bits and bobs hanging off of this guy. I wonder why they gave him the robes, though. Didn’t mention this in my video review, but the chance to paint a blue armored character in an army where the rest of your troops could be painted in a completely different color, (Salamanders, for example), why would you hide so much of the armor? His legs are almost completely covered, and the upper body is obscured from the sides and the back by the long robes.

As a painter, this means you get less blue armor to paint, but a much bigger canvas to work in with the robes, itself. There is a lot of area for freehand work, and will give any painter a chance to work on some smooth blending on all the cloth surface.
