Art Scale Ultramarines

Ultramarines are my favourite Space Marine Chapter. I know they have a bit of a bad rep in the community for being boring, or to common place, but I’ve loved them since I first started painting 40k minis nearly 20 years ago. A Roman influence on aesthetics, a beautiful cobalt blue, white, and gold colour…

Art Scale Little Sisters of Purification

When 28mag announced their Female Space Marine challenge, I was immediately excited to participate. The lack of women in the forces of the Adeptus Astartes has bothered me for quite some time, and this was a perfect chance to explore the idea of women as Space Marines. Of course it should go without saying that…

Little Sisters of Purification

This project was a very fun change of pace. Myself and Fabalah decided to participate in 28mags second challenge of 2021, focused around Female Space Marines. While I’ve built and painted an Art Scale squad of the Sisters, Fabalah chose to make a lovely rendition of the Chapter Symbol and a Marine, and you can…

Ironjawz army

The colour scheme for the whole army was inspired by Grimgor Ironhide and the classic Black Orc colour scheme from the Old World. Black, beaten metal with white markings and a very dark skin tone for the Orrucks themselves. Ive always found that particular sub-faction very interesting, and this was a fun way to explore…

Ironjawz Ardboys

The core of the army are the Ardboys, tough and reliable Orrucks that are shockingly disciplined for their kind. I went with the classic Black Orc colour scheme of the Old World. I like the striking black metal and white markings, giving the unit a pretty dark vibe overall. The Total War: Warhammer series provided…

Ironjawz Brutes

Along with the Blood Bowl range, these might be some of my favourite Orc related sculpts. They’re massive, muscular and aggressive, and better proportioned than some of the older Orc kits. I had a ton of fun both building and painting them. I’m a big fan of the massive Klaw the Boss is armed with,…

Ironjawz Gore-gruntas

In keeping with the Black Orcs but bigger and meaner theme of the faction, the Ironjawz cavalry unit is a massive beast of muscle, fur, and tusks, like some kind of Dire-Boar. I wish the models were a little more boar-like, but I still like them, especially the size. They look like the type of…

Ironjawz Megaboss

Leading the Ironjawz army is a Megaboss, a creature of brutal strength and impressive size, even among the Orcs/Orruks they lead. The model is nearly the size of a Dreadnought, a broad, thickly muscled brute of a character that has quite the presence on the table, towering over all but the largest monsters and easily…

Ironjawz Warchanter

I love how fun this character is, taking the idea of an inspiring bard and making it into something that fits with the brutal violence of the Orrucks. They give me a bit of a Mad Max vibe, a welcome comparison in my eyes. I’m a big fan of the pose, I like how expressive…

Ironjawz Weirdnob Shaman

A characterful and unique hero among the Ironjawz, this model does a great job of showcasing the strange presence of Weirdnobs, the shaman/caster of the army. The large leather shawl was a lot of fun, giving me a chance to practice the process on a larger surface than usual, and giving the Shaman a different…
