Space Marine Bike: finished

I’ve finished the Space Marine Bike and guessed at the markings to put on as the Codex’s are a little complex. Bearing in mind that this was a trial build and paint job, I’m not very happy with it at … Continue reading

I was in Games Workshop at the weekend getting a couple of new paint brushes and decided to buy myself a Warhammer 40,000 model. I went for something pretty cheap as these little kits can cost quite a lot of … Continue reading

Masked and painted the rear. Finally managed to fit the top and bottom sections together. Good old elastic bands to help them stick.

Spinner: wheels 3

Today I moved on to masking the tyre section of the wheels off. Not as easy as it sounds as I had to cut a lot of small curved sections (very time consuming). Quite happy with the results though, and … Continue reading
