Some of My Favourite Models from Warhammer 40k

LONG POST WARNING - Well, this is me posting this but there are a lot of pictures that I've had to add here.

So, in my spare time (aka daylight.......) I tend to paint Warhammer 40,000 miniatures. A LOT of miniatures. Today, I just want to share some pictures of what could be considered some of my favourite miniatures to paint to this day. Yes, all of these belong to Chaos, but I do have several more armies. The reason that I DON'T include them are as follows:

Necrons - The only model that I am really impressed by was my Tesseract Vault, but that thing was a nightmare to paint.

Thousand Sons - I love Magnus, and he did nothing wrong, but didn't love his model enough to put here.

Tzeentch Daemons - I don't have a Lord of Change. I have some Daemon Princes and a squad of Pink Horrors.

Harlequins - Favourite faction to play, not so much to paint.

T'au Empire - My favourite Riptide is in various pieces and in different boxes. CBF to find them all.

Blood Angels - I'm doing my own successor chapter, but I don't have many models. That and they're Space Marines. Everyone knows them!

Orks - I have none built. They're all in my pile of shame.

These photos aren't the greatest quality, as they were taken in my room at night with my phone camera, so some of the detail may be missing.

ANYWAY! My favourite model to paint to date surprised even me. Normally I'm a pretty devout follower of Slaanesh, but I loved painting this model way more.

MORTARION - Daemon Primarch of the Death Guard legion. This piece of work took me the single longest amount of time to paint, besides being almost only WASHES. The wings took up a good 75% of my time painting him, and were done over the course of two weeks. So. Much. Drybrushing.

Next on my list are a few Slaanesh models. First is a generic Keeper of Secrets, followed by the named version, Shalaxi Helbane.

Next is another Nurgle creation. After doing weeks of smooth and tiny Harlequins, I decided to go full body horror and pick up my first Great Unclean one, who I have lovingly named Hughmungous Chungus.

Plague, eat your heart out.

Moving away from the giant daemons, I've also done some fantastic smaller characters. First up, I'll show off Abaddon the Despoiler, Warmaster of Chaos and leader of the Black Legion and his daemonic sword, Drach'Nyen.

With the recent re-release of the model, I've also done Fabius Bile, the Clonelord.

Finally for today I'll also show of the Bloodthirster, Skarbrand and his twin axes Slaughter and Carnage.

Just a little something from my happy place. These are not my own original creations, they are kits that I did have to assemble myself, but I did also have to paint them all. Some of these, like a basic Marine, I can probably do in about 30 minutes or less. All of the models here have taken several days to weeks in some cases. For a size comparison, Fabius Bile is the smallest model here, on a 32mm base. He's about the size of one of the small guys in this comparison photo:

Abaddon's somewhere in the middle, but on the smaller size. THIS is why they take so long!

Thanks for getting through all that. I've alluded to my love of this hobby, but never shown anyone on these forums my work before. Here's a sneak peek into that.

    Eight views and one comment now. :) You do clean work, it looks great. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the Lord of Change.

    Papa Nurgle is overjoyed by your attention, and would like you to know that even if he's not your favorite you are his and he'll always have a free hug ready for you. ;)

    Why, thank you! It'll be interesting to see how that turns out. Maybe I'll update my Bloodthirster that I did back when the Khorne Daemonkin book came out, before I started using washes and all that, then I'll have a look at my new pantheon. The Lord of Change is now literally the last of the Greater Daemons that I'm missing!

    Skulls for the Skullthrone!

    Cool this makes me actually like you, i do not paint any warhammer models but did like to read stuff like horus heresy and enjoy warhammer fantasy and 40k. I played dawn of war 2 for a longtime and was really burnt by dow3, I still have my fingers crossed that GW will give the license to creative assembly and let them make a great 40k game as well. 40k and warhammer 3 and i do not again ask for another warhammer game i guess.

    Awesome paint job on all models, there is something I do like about each model. On Fabius Bile is that supposed to be skin stretched across the shoulders? Looks great, I think I will buy some models from the local GW store but already painted. I think I will start with fantasy and maybe add a few from 40k. When that happens I will share the photos here but just remember I do not paint them.

  • PigMainClaudettePigMainClaudette Member Posts: 3,842

    So, Yeah. Fabius Bile does actually wear a cloak made out of skin.

    There are also no pre-painted models, but don't worry about a bad paint scheme. I look back at my first models and they're awful! I have the old Abaddon model and I couldn't paint at all. It just takes time and practice.

  • EndstilleEndstille Member Posts: 2,246

    I understand that it takes time and patience, i just do not have the time or the patience 😂

    Unfortunately already as it is I barely have enough time for my hobbies, so taking a new one which takes alot of time simply isn't in it for me. Uhm the models I will get are not pre painted either, they are the normal models and in addition to that I pay someone who is good to paint them for me. So I can at least admire them.

  • PigMainClaudettePigMainClaudette Member Posts: 3,842

    That is fair. I've been at this hobby for a decade now, and spend a majority of my time painting.

    Pretty much on a day off, it's paint and binge Netflix at the same time during daylight then DbD at night.
