T’au Cadre Fireblade D’yini 2

SHOWCASE: T’au Cadre Fireblade

The abandoned depot was a welcome shelter from the abrasive ruststorm that howled outside. The T’au vanguard had made camp amongst ancient manufactorum crates and now huddled together around the blue glow of their fusion-heaters. Hovering drones hummed and whirred around the perimeter, motes of dust dancing in their infrared beams. Shas’nel D’yini’s jaw was set sternly as she listened to the latest reports from her scouts.

SHOWCASE: Standard Bearer of Tzeentch

 At the heart of the horde a bronze-clad titan stood, implacable and immense. It bore a great icon wreathed in hellfire and around it’s helm, an unholy corona of wychflame glow’d.

Today I get to celebrate a hobby milestone that any painter can take pride in – a model featured in the hallowed pages of White Dwarf!

SHOWCASE: T’au Tetra (and tips for transfers)

Grit hissed and clattered off the hood of the small skimmer as it ploughed through billowing red clouds of oxide dust. The tandem craft buffeted like a leaf in a storm, jinking and swerving through a mangled sprawl of skeletal buildings and ducts.

Gales keened through the sector’s broken spires, stoking the rust clouds that threatened to choke the Tetra’s engine intakes. The spotter’s grip tightened on the craft’s side, scanning his holoscreen as his comrade doggedly steered towards the faint blip of the basecamp homing beacon. They had to tell the others what they’d seen…

Welcome back reader. This week we have a miniature I started in 2015 but only finished recently (some of our long-standing Instagram follower may even recognise it!). It is, of course, the beautiful T’au Pathfinder Tetra.

Tzeentch Sorcerer by technasma

SHOWCASE: Disciples of Tzeentch

In the fractal realities of Tzeentch’s labyrinth, time and space are subverted. Years pass in the blink of an eye and prisoners of these chaotic realms find themselves spontaneously vomited out into planes of existence very different from those they left behind.

In the world that was, I was working on a Chaos Sorcerer and a mutant flock of Forsaken. Now, these warped servants of Tzeentch find themselves fully painted and reborn into the Mortal Realms. Let’s take a look.

WIP: Tzeentch Chaos Warband – Warhammer: Age of Sigmar

Those that walk the Path to Glory seek immortal power from their mercurial master. Yet the will of  Tzeentch is capricious and his Path is strewn with The Lost and The Damned.

Greetings Arcanites! As it’s #WorkInProgressWednesday on the webz I thought I’d share some of the current miniatures on my work bench.

HOBBY: 6 Hobby Essentials I couldn’t do without!

The Path of the Artificer is one of lifelong dedication and self-improvement. However, whispered legends tell of six powerful artifacts that can aid the disciple on their path to mastery of the paintbrush…

Greetings warmongers! I’m in the throes of a house move, so unfortunately the only time I’ve had for painting recently is rolling emulsion paint onto the walls of my new place. As such I’ve not had much to share here on the blog. Full service should resume soon though!

In lieu of miniatures I thought I’d share some of the hobby essentials that I find invaluable! Continue reading

Project Log: The Shining Path – T’au Empire

Here we stand on the brink of a golden dawn. In a universe of ancient tyrants, the destiny of our birthright burns unstoppably like a newborn sun. Illuminated by the Greater Good we shall blaze a shining path through the darkness.

In stark contrast to the grim darkness of the far future I love the naive optimism of the Tau. Having coveted them for a while, when the new releases came out I couldn’t help but jump on the band wagon and pick up some kits for a new project! Continue reading

Showcase: Masters of the Deep – Cog Automaton

Big, clanky and full of personality!

That’s how I’d describe the Cog Automaton I had the pleasure of painting this weekend. If you saw my previous blog-post you’ll know that I won the chance to paint a prototype from the game Rivals: Masters of the DeepSet in a Steampunk world of underwater adventure, this forthcoming game is packed full of fantastic miniatures.
