Latest addition to my Blood Angels

Oh my, it was a long break. So much stuff to do (not necessary hobby related), and this blog was sent deep into oblivion. The priorities unfortunately were somewhere else. However, I haven’t made complete break from miniatures. I’m kind of addicted to painting them, so almost every day I sit over my workstation, lick my brushes and try to make something colourful. And during last few months I was able to paint quite a bunch of miniatures, and only gods know why I haven’t post them here. I was so overworked, and burnt out a bit, so the blog lost a priority, I guess. Anyway, I have a few models to brag about, so prepare for series of posts about my recent paint jobs. Starting now. First – latest squad for my Blood Angels army – Tactical Squad. I painted them a few weeks ago, and back then I was fresh after a couple of games of Warhammer 40k. Shameful games. Shameful because my army was unpainted. What a disgrace! I was justifying myself, …

Battle Report: Warhammer 40k – Blood Angels vs Raven Guard (2000 points)

And the next battle report here. Warhammer 40000. My Blood Angels (once again) versus Raven Guard (commanded by my friend Miłosz). 2000 points. Game played as a part of ‘Fading Suns of Corinth Sector’ campaign. Unfortunately not all models were painted (especially on my side. shame on me), but I joined this campaign to train my Wh40k skills and I was so eager to do it, so I skipped my ‘only painted models’ resolution. Well, it was a choice:  this or I should wait another year or two (by looking at my progress in painting Warhammer 40000 miniatures). This is the last report with unpainted models. No more. Time to implement more strict policy. 2017’s resolution. The game was played in October 2016 in Faber Hobby Store in Warsaw, Poland. Scenario – Relics Gravity distortions and launch of next Necron generators had significant influence on the weather and tectonic movements. The whole continent were struck by terrible storms, strong winds and earthquakes. Each of the factions were after the answers, helping to understand those anomalies, …

Blood Angels Rhino

It has been quite some time since I was  painting anything for my Blood Angels Army. And recently I had a opportunity to take a quick glance at the state of my Space Marines. Well, they don’t look impressive. In April this year I started painting challenge when I entered the campaign with my Blood Angels. The idea was to paint at least one more squad/vehicle/character before the next battle of the campaign starts. This way, in every subsequent battle of the campaign, more and more of my army will be painted and eventually all of Blood Angels will see red. That was the plan… …but you know how it is with the plans. They never work. Well, maybe not every plan, but painting challenges? Not in my case. There too many awesome miniatures to paint in my collection, just to focus my efforts on only one type, and to coordinate all my efforts to paint exactly one mini until the deadline – it seems to impossible. So, let’s be honest – this whole Blood …

Fading Suns of Corinth Warhammer 40000 campaign. Turn 1

  Few weeks ago, I joined to a group of friends to play Warhammer 40000 narrative campaign. Fading Suns of Corinth sector is the story of mysterious Necron activity and the clash of few armies attracted by the riddle of Corinth. Soon the campaign is about to start. The first battle is already scheduled for April 10th. So, it’s time to start the preparations. The scenario The story is at very start. Eight armies came to the sector to check Necron plot. My Blood Angels were forced to deal with Dark Angles. 1500 points. Blood Angels are trying to set up a base site on one of the planets. Unfortunately for both sides, Dark Angels chose the very same site, but arrived a moment later. Attack was commenced, and the battle was on. Blood Angels defend their base. 50% of the army set up normally in the deployment zone. Second half is in the reserves and enter form the second turn with usual reserves rules. Dark Angels do not deploy in normal fashion, but all …

Hail to Blood Angels!

Few days ago I’ve managed to finish Terminators Squad for my growing Blood Angels army. It took me some time to finish those, but it was quite satisfying work. Terminators are super cool models  and it was really fun to put colours on them. Probably, the whole Terminators project did not occupy me for so much time, If I won’t work simultaneously on other Blood Angels. Tactical Squad. All together – all 15 miniatures – took me almost a month to paint them all. After all this time – they are finally done. It was the matter of perseverance, I guess. I painted few hours a day (if that was possible of course). I used every spare moment, all my free time to paint these minis.  And here they are. Of course, I could have concentrated even more. One month for even 15 models is way too long. The next batch of Space Marines (definitely not in near future), I hope will not be that time consuming. If I could short it to two weeks …

Blood Angels Terminators (Finally!)

Edit (24.02.2016): I updated photos in this post. Old ones had too much blue in the background and it was distorting whole colour scheme of miniatures. New ones are better imho. The Day has come. After almost a month, I’ve finally finished painting Blood Angels. Terminators Squad – they were first (simultaneously I worked on Tactical Squad – just few final touches to go) so, Ladies and Gentlemen – let me present you. My first Warhammer 40k Blood Angels Chapter squad – Terminators. Well, to be entirely honest – I started these Terminators in July 2015. I was hoping, I’ll be able to finish them in a week or two… but something came out. Right now, I’m not sure what exactly – but if I’m remember it correctly – I was forced to postpone Terminators, because all of the sudden – I needed some Skaven for upcoming battle. Classic change of priorities:). So, few months later. Few thousands km away – I’ve decided to get back to Terminators. The squad you are looking at is …

Blood Angels Sanguinary Priest painted. Yay!

The time has finally come. Holiday break is over and now I’m back to work (not a fun part), but also I’m back to painting miniatures and writing new posts on Game of Travel blog. Three weeks in Australia – it was a nice break. The time I could regenerate and get strength for painting my entire travelling set of models (full list of what exactly I’m planning to paint during my 6 months stay in Asia is here). As you can see I have pretty ambitious plans – and if I want to make it possible, I should paint from 1 to 5 models a week. Surely, it’s manageable. Starting this week here in Kuta, Bali. And, wow, how I missed that! Over three weeks with no brush in my hand. How it’s even possible?! (well, it’s not entirely true – I was painting a little – I think, it was something about three hours… but it felt like nothing). And now, let me present you Blood Angels Sanguinary Priest for Warhammer 40000. I …
