These were a relatively fast batch. Only 9 in this unit. The Ursarax are done! I really like the saturated yellow on these. It’s so vibrant and eye-catching. There is plenty of blood splatter to imply how many infantry they turned to paste.

I did a batch of these with pointy claws in the last Mechanicum commission and now more are needed, but with power paws. Hazard yellow with black accents and a good amount of iron and brass. You can tell they’ve gone to work already due to the blood splatters. I’m told a squad of these are a terror on the battlefield.

For the first time in forever, I have recorded my painting on one of the Ursarax. Over the next little while, I will be editing that video and posting it on Youtube. Hopefully, my new desk setup and lighting work out so the footage is usable.

With the completion of the bolter bikes, the Outriders are now complete. They all have some sort of power weapon, I think they are going to be used as some sort of special weapons unit.

Included is also the Warlord on bike. He is the one doing a wheelie and has a glaive. I was also asked to paint some eagles and one of them is attached to a base. It looks like it’s going to be some kind of marker during the game.

The next batch for this commission will be some Mechanicum models, but they are getting prepped for painting, so I will be painting more Harlequins right now.

The next few bikes are done. They’re the first of the bolter bikers and are equipped with fancy weapons.

Finished another handful of bikes. 6 more plasma bikers with a couple chainsword wielders. There’s a few more plasma bikers to go before I get to the bolter bikers.

I changed up the jump pack on a Chaplain. I think he needed the change so the two Chaplains can be differentiated. It’s painted like the jump pack on the Emperor’s Champion but in black.

The second batch of jetbikes are done! Lots of mud and weathering were added to the bases and bikes so it looks like they’re currently fighting. I’m still loving the narrative of the stone faces with the chain attach. I’m told this battlefield could be the battle for Terra, so the faces could be getting pulled down or blasted off.

I’m in the middle of building the Outriders, so in the mean time I will be painting some Harlequins.

The first batch of jetbikes are done.

Like the Xiphon and Chaplains I already did, there is a lot of dirt and weathering on the bikes. They are currently in battle, in white armour, so I imagine it gets dirty. The bases further expand on my theme of these. Some stone faces are attached with chain so it looks like an excavation is going on. I think I’ll add more wood pathways for the trench works part of the theme.

All of the bikes have been built now. I decided to attach the Marines since it didn’t look like too much was obstructed if I glued them in place. Also, they just look so cool.

I am very pleased with how they turned out. Each one is quite unique in that almost all of them have their own weapon/trophy display of some kind, and they’re all attached differently. Very tribal looking.

For the bases, I am continuing the trenchwork/mud theme I had going for the infantry I did earlier. Since the bases are much larger, I can do much more too. I was given stone faces and chain and other random bits, so I put them on. The chains are attached to some of the faces so it looks like some sort of excavation is going on. There are also balsawood catwalks I made for the trenchwork part of the theme.

The brass rods are cut at different heights so the jetbikes look like they are zipping across uneven terrain. Once everything is painted, I will be adding the mud and water effects to complete the aesthetic. I’ve got the catwalks on 4 bases, maybe more are needed?

The next batch of minis are Space Marine Jetbikes! The White Scars like to add trophies and other bits to their steeds so that’s what I did. A bunch have chain glaives and shields attached to the bike. I have a few different materials like chain, rope, and wire.

I tried to give some variety. The shields are placed all over the bikes and the glaives are put on either side.

They are going to be mounted on brass rod attached to their fancy mud and rubble bases. Though I think I’ll be attaching the rods to the base and then have the jetbikes will just be friction fit on top.
