The Judges are here!

What do you get when you combine Mega city one judges and Bloodbowl? You get team Meg-1!

Long time readers may remember way back when I showed a few posts on my classic Bloodbowl team models, I think I called them something badgers? Anyways, that project went nowhere, as I didn’t like the colours scheme direction.

So I re-based these guys as a whole and painted them inspired by the colours of the city judges from Judge Dredd (created by John Wagner and Carlos E.). Originally I was going to paint them as Night Lords inspired team, but gradually I decided to go for the judge look.

As a fan of Judge Dredd and 2,000ad comics, this was a perfect opportunity to show my skills at painting something inspired by my hobby interests. Whilst the inspiration isn’t necessarily a nice subject (considering judges aren’t exactly morally the good guys), I still thought it would be something new to try out.

I do like how the team looks nearly similar to the judges of Mega city one, the right eagle shoulder plate and gear colours tie in quite nicely.

But alas, since I wasn’t able to get the full team from the charity shop years ago, I’ve basically got a team that’s missing a second runner. However, I think they’ll do just fine as a display piece for my collection.

That’s finally one delayed backlog done, now a thousand more to go!

Sh@t out of hell……

The fair looking, silver haired and majestic golden eyed questioner and I were sitting down at the table enjoying our tea, in the planes of torment and suffering. A plane of onyx earth, red skies and weird horrors lurking about. If Michael Moorcock was here, he’d write a fantastic story about this place called hell, in fact I’m in hell itself!

Anyways, the fair man next to me asked me a question, he asked me what was the rarest thing I own.

“If I were asked what’s the rarest item you own, I’d say Dominator the movie.” I said.

“What?” Asked the questioner, with a smooth almost angelic voice.

“Dominator, you know, the first ever British manga animation to be released back in the early 2,000’s?”

“Never heard of it, but I do have a friend named Dominator, the less said the better” he paused awkwardly before continuing “Is it a cheap dirty anime film?” Asked the questioner mockingly with a soft grin .

“No, definitely not one of those” I said before I gulped as I whispered “It’s worse than that…….”

Dominator the movie retrospective review coming soon! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

Another Big Mek, but this time on a Warbike

A new Mek has arrived on his warbike to join my Bad Moons Collection, and he’s got a pretty cool kustom bike to show off too! (Fancy git!)

I bloody love this model! I used a Build+paint Space Ork on Warbike and a Ork Nob, converted into a Big Mek with kustom decorations and improvements to the old kit. Either that or the tiny Ork riding the bike is a no brainier!

I wanted my Big Mek to have a look of motion on the bike, so I positioned him at an angle as if he was aiming at his enemy. Adding the flying bullet casings and a Dark Elf Warriors flag on the back helps to create still motion.

I hope GW will keep the rules for this variant of the Big Mek in the Ork Codex, however, since there aren’t any official models, they’ll likely scrap it’s rules. I’ll be sad if that is the case. But maybe GW will release one along with the new Cult of Speed range in October!

Anyways, I’m gonna head back to working on this chap for the next couple of days.

Big Mek in Mega armour (Bad Moons top Mek boy)

This model was converted using a spare old model from Warmachine and plethora of spare bitz, mostly from the Orks range. Since I would’ve had to spend a lot of money just to get the official Big Mek from GW, I decided to try and kit bash anything I could find that would look ‘big’.

Whilst I won’t be able to play this big chap at any GW stores, I can at least be proud that I used my imagination to create my own Mek.

My ever growing horse of Orks is gaining a lot of attention now with forty Gretchins, four Ork Commandos and a Big Mek on a Warbike to paint, I’ve still got plenty to do with 40k stuff.

Lately I’ve been feeling off-put from typing blog posts this month, not because I don’t like blogging anymore, but I just feel uninspired to do much. I think it’s down to two things 1) the whole AoS series I’m currently working on that’s making me less enthusiastic, from doing the same thing over and over, especially the SE models. 2) I need to take more breaks off painting, as I’m burning myself out with the amount of stuff I’m doing atm. I’ve got quite a few models ready for photography, but I don’t want to use up all of my photography backlog.

I don’t dislike SE, I think their amazing currently with the Sacrosanct Chamber released, however, the models get boring to paint for long period of time as they look nearly identical. The Nifhthaunt on the other hand were so much more appealing to paint, since every unit looks slightly different in design and form.

So I’m taking a break from painting AoS stuff whilst I get back into painting more Orks. With the announcement that Orktober will be a thing, I’m trying to paint as many Orks as I can to be ready for the Codex release.

So expect to see some more greenskins from me for the next couple of *weeks! ๐Ÿ™‚

*- Also I’ll be featuring other stuff including a stand-alone Bloodbowl post, some Nighthaunt models and more!

Inspired Soul Wars Collection: Ghostly reinforcements

More Nighthaunt have joined my growing collection, which is inspired by the characters and events in the novel, Soul Wars (by Josh Reynolds). Today I have a unit of ten Chainrasp Horde, Myrmourn Banshees and additional Grimwraith Stalkers.

Let me know if you like these filtered photo style or just white background photography, and post your suggestions in the comment section.

We serve Nagash, there is nothing but Nagash, and all is Nagash.
