Ordo Malleus Daemonhunter

Hi Friends,
Todays classic Rogue Trader miniature is an Ordo Malleus Daemonhunter, I painted this miniature while working on the Forgeworld Solomon Lok which I can say I am not enjoying painting although the sculpting on this miniature is inferior to Solomon Lok, on Lok there is just too much detail, you need to be of Golden Demon standard to do it justice.

I love the ecclesiastical outfit and personal power armour he wears, adorned in runes and Imperial emblems, he is armed with a Daemon sword and a holstered PSI-cannon.  If you remember from the all fluff in the RoC SoD book I still laugh now remembering to even see an Ordo Malleus Daemonhunter meant you faced extermination only Adeptus Astartes were exempt as it was seen as a waste.

White Dwarf catalogue advert below, labelled slightly wrong as Inquisitors with force weapons, which if you look at the miniatures they are clearly carrying Daemon weapons.  Luckily I own all three :)

I also painted one of the many broken plastic Tyranids in my Advanced Space crusade box, just to see if I could restore the miniature to a decent standard, it might be the start of another project for the future.

Summer Time Chaos


Hello Friends,
I am back from my family summer holiday, after catching up on what I have missed I read another wonderful post by Orlygg over at the foremost Oldhammer blog Realm of Chaos 80's I received a plug to my blog, it energised me to get my arse in gear and add another post, here are some of the latest miniatures I have painted for my Realm of Chaos Warband which I can say is now developing into an army, I have made loads of trades over in the Oldhammer Trading Facebook community and have a horde of new Chaos Beastmen and Thugs to prep and paint when I get the time.

A big thank you to the boys in the Oldhammer community Facebook group for pointing me to Picasa, it has improved the quality of my photos tenfold. 

I do remember owning and painting this miniature first time round but it sadly ended up on eBay many years ago, this Realm of Chaos Champion I traded from Orlygg over a year ago and the miniature finally got a lick of paint, it is up there with my favourite Khornate Champions and reminds me of Master Blaster from Mad Max III, with attributes of chaos armour, mark of Khorne, mechanical body with tracked leg, manikin, chain-fist (and probably other ones I haven't spotted) what's not to love about this miniature. I think this champion is great for any Warhammer and W40k Chaos army and makes a great servitor or indentured slave usable in any Dark Heresy campaign.

Next up is a 'C' series C35 Chaos Warrior 'Fenris' I originally painted him for a D20 Slaine RPG campaign I was running and just spruced him up a little to add to my constantly growing Chaos Thug horde, he definitely made his name in the barbarian fighting pits of the chaos wastes, I just love all his scarification markings and piercings.

Now we have more of my Beastmen of Khorne or Khorngor, the original RoC painted miniatures never cease to fire my imagination as I eagerly attempt to reproduce the RoC feel with my own paints and style, here are the original adverts from White Dwarf 105, 107 and my painted versions.

Probably my all time favourite chaos beastman he really captures the feel of the beastmen on the front of the RoC StD book and many of the illustrations inside.

I am sure this Khornate beastman started life as the Bloodbowl Werewolf Star player.

As usual I like to break up the painting theme and do something slightly different so I painted a Bob Olley RoC Nurgle  Beastman, like Marmite you either love them or hate them.

Now everyone knows and loves this CH4 chaos beastman 'Hesh', he pops up all sorts of places including scenario sets and illustrations (see below) I shall add him to the regiment of chaos undivided beastmen I am slowly building up.
