Lincoln College Christmas Market Pop up Shop starting Tomorrow!!!

Lincoln College Christmas Market Pop up Shop starting Tomorrow!!!

Tomorrow will be the start of the pop up shop opening day on the 7th, followed by the 8th and 9th of December. Some of my acrylic paintings I’ve done will be printed as cards for the Lincoln Christmas market, at Lincoln College located at Christ’s Hospital Terrace. There will be signs for directions on where to go to visit the Colleges pop up shop.

The cards that I’ll be producing for sale are works that I’ve been doing for my course work. These include two versions of the Lord Tennyson painting (one bright and sharp for the Autumn effect, and one for more mature and closer accuracy to the statues look) as well as an early painting of a British solider at the Lincolnshire life museum.

There are other cards on sale too!

All of the cards you see here are priced at 75p each! Great for Xmas cards and any occasion for card giving (probably not Valentine’s Day……!).

Also, I have prints for sale if anyone prefers to have one of my paintings on their wall. Currently there are two prints available that will be on sale at the Xmas market. Each print costs around £5 each.

There’s a limited run of 9 prints! So it’s a first come first served basis for the prints, as well as the cards you see here. Finally, there’s one framed A4 print that will be on sale for £10.

I hope you can come and visit, wether from around the UK or abroad if you are visiting Lincoln for the Christmas market.

Have a great day, and I’ll be back tomorrow with a new blog post!

Dark Millennium Faction Collection: Harbinger Legion- Defiler

Dark Millennium Faction Collection: Harbinger Legion- Defiler

A short post today on a model that I’ve shown before, and for the last time hopefully, the Defiler.

I’ve made some improvements to the model with rust trims and some minor details on the model. There’s not much to say on the model, however, here’s some photos to show the model in all its weird damnation!

I didn’t want to make a long post today because this model wasn’t that interesting to talk about. As I’ve painted this model awhile back, and I’ve shown it in past posts.

However I thought I’d show you guys an updated progress on the model for my collection. I apologise if this post was too short, but fear not, my next post in the series will be an exciting one for sure!

The next post will be taking a look at the Dark Apostle of the Harbinger Legion. Once part of Lorgars fanatical zealots of preachers, now an outcast for devoting to one of the Chaos gods, this Apostle devotes himself only to the God of disease and Pestilence.

Dark Millennium Faction Collection: Harbinger Legion- Warpsmith of the Cult of Chimera

Dark Millennium Faction Collection: Harbinger Legion- Warpsmith of the Cult of Chimera

Bind the flesh to metal with flame and misery.

Tear the emotions of mortality and goodness until nothing but void.

Combine the strongest components and materials from only the strongest subjects.

We much create the Chimera.

~chanting of the Cult of Chimera, during the creation of the Flesh Beast.

Working alongside the Harbinger Legion, the Cult of Chimera are a valuable asset to the legion for it’s war machines and ancient technology. Having proven their techno-Heresy skills when invading the Hive world of Torvalion, the cult has gained recognition and funding to build their influence for others to join.

It was the heretic Warpsmiths of the Cult of Chimera that created the unique breed of Helbrutes, the Flesh Beasts.

The Cult wear unfamiliar marks of armour that aren’t recognised by existing marks, nor altered marks of the renegade space marines. It is in fact suggested by the Tech priests of Mars, that the Cult has produced its own identity to distinguish it’s inner members.

The model was made using many spare bitz from many kits, including a classic resin metal model of a Dark Angel Space marine (I clipped its head off like a heretic 😏). The most obvious kit bashing was the helmet, taken from the Kharadron Overlords Set. I thought the alteration would look even more in line with the Dark Mechanicum.This kit bash model had saved me money and less hassle, than if I brought the official resin Warpsmith, having brought a few *cough* Finecast models in the past, I knew it wasn’t worth buying the resin one.

Whilst there’s no Mechatendrites on the model, I can just imagine it, and I think the model would look a tad bit silly with metal tentacles.

Anyway, that’s all there is to say for now on this model, but I will say that you should keep your eyes peeled for future posts, as the Cult of Chimera has influenced certain marines into their cult……

Next time, walking on four legs, bashing it’s two big claws and walks like a constipated sea crab, it’s the Defiler!……….yes……that’s all I have to say to be honest………(anti cliffhanger moment).

Dark Millennium Faction Collection: Harbinger Legion- Flesh Beast Helbrute

Dark Millennium Faction Collection: Harbinger Legion- Flesh Beast Helbrute

During the campaign of decimation in the year 477.39M to take over the Hive world of Torvalion, the Harbinger Legion used ballistic and chemical missiles to smash the Imperial defences. These strikes would weaken many Imperial Guard defences, but only on the surface, for the Hive world has underground layers of habitation and strategic defences.

Whilst it would only take a simple bombardment of torpedoes or corrosive plague to tear down the Hive, it was however not that simple. The legion needed something from the Hive that was vital for the mission to succeed, something which the Daemon Prince Nal’torvul needed intact.

So, the priests of the dark Mechanicum, notably the ones of the mysterious cult named ‘Chimera’, devised a plan that would give the Legion a chance to raid the lower layers of the Hive without structural damage. They’ve created a new form of Helbrutes that combined both the dark arts of the machines, the flesh of the slain and the blessings of Nurgles diseases into a new kind of monster. The ‘Flesh Beast’

These monstrosity are both flesh and metal with the essence of life and death in eternal cycles. The beast is neither mortally alive nor dead, it’s abnormal state is achieved by means that only the cult of Chimera can master.

Once released from their chains, the Flesh Beasts made short work to tear the walls down, charging into a frenzy as they clear the way down the lower Hive layers.

This heavily kitbashed Helbrute was made using parts from various kits including the Maggoth Lords, Vampire Zombie dragon kit, Garden of Moor gates and Blightking parts. All used to create a very disgusting and very imaginative model.

With such an kitbashed that offers different textures, forms and shapes to test paint, I found this to be a great time to do some creative painting. I’ve really enjoyed testing out colour schemes for the Daemon Flesh, meat racks and bone.

This is probably one my favourite models from this faction collection, as it just screams (literally) to life with character and imagination. But it’s not the only model I’ve kit bashed for this collection……

Next time…………

Dark Millennium Faction Collection: Harbinger Legion- Chaos Rhino

Dark Millennium Faction Collection: Harbinger Legion- Chaos Rhino

Back again with a new addition to the Harbinger Legion with a Chaos Rhino. A common use of transportation for C. S marines, Havocs and so on, it’s a reliable transport for marines, if it’s not hungry on the day…….

Originally a Chaos Rhino for my Word Bearers Legion collection, it was re-coated and reassigned for the Harbinger Legion. This decision was made because of my renegade Astartes force growing larger, which needed a transport attachment.

originally part of my Word Bearers Legion, the Chaos Rhino was decent task to paint, but sadly I’ve ruined the model by adding too much Silver when drybrushing (not pictured)

The tank is an iron carcass of rust, grime and putrid oozes, as well as markings of of the chaos star etched onto the doors of the Rhino.

Next up, a Daemon reaped inside an iron Prison in form of an abomination lumbers with its many legs. A masterpiece by the Dark Mechanici, the Warpsmiths ensure that the Defilers are always primed and ready to cause havoc.
