My one Pelta-class frigate is now done. Not sure which version I will be using in battles, but it’ll probably be a Projection Experts caddie.

Like the rest of the fleet, I repainted the ship in white/blue and added freehand of my own. Two Republic insignias to properly show off loyalty.

Another character done for the Harlequin forces, the Death Jester. He’s got a big gun, which is very safe to use perched on his toes on a narrow piece of ruin. I reduced the number of diamonds on this guy relative to other Harlequins I’ve done. I wanted to keep the scheme similar in theme to the box art, so there is more dark colouring and fewer bright spots.

Progress on the Harlequins is slow but still going. The third Star Weaver is now done. I’m particularly proud that I’ve managed to keep the diamonds in mostly the same spots as previous ones and the colour transition is nice and smooth.

The second Star Weaver is done with a couple more crewmates. I brightened the orange on the diamonds a bit from the first one and I think I like it more. I’ve updated the old one to be brighter too.

While putting together the next batch of Space Marines to paint, I painted up a Solitaire. He’s going to be one of the leaders so I put in more diamonds across the piece.

I painted the orange in first so I can get the proper transitions before painting in the black diamonds. There was some diamonds added to the cloak so it looks like his trail is melding in with the cloth. Similar to the Shadowseer, I put diamonds on the hood, fading to the black.

The wraithbone masonry he’s vaulting over is a bit of a treat. I made sure to add bright highlights all along the runes, especially in the shade so it looks polished. Quite the dynamic looking mini, very striking when you have the bright diamonds and costuming that we all love with the Harlequins.

While I am building the next batch of White Scars, I am going to be painting some Harlequins so I have some colour to show of intermittently . I have been tasked with painting many diamonds for this army. It came built and magnetized, very well done, very clean. I hope I can do the army justice.

First model is a Star Weaver and its 2 magnetized passengers. Everyone gets orange diamonds, white masks, bronze armour bits, and blue accents pieces like guns, gems, and studs. The base is a simple wraithbone theme. I’m looking to see if the weapons are a good colour to keep and if coupled with blue gems are enough to balance the scheme. This is going to be a very visually striking army once they’re all done.

Finally starting to get started on these guys. Of course, I have a soft spot for the lowly humans in almost every game system. Bonus points if they are religious zealots and have access to fire or cool armour. I am not sure about the fire yet, but there are warrior priests and dudes in cool armour. Not these soldiers though.

These are the first stands of my Men-at-Arms. I had made the bases using clay or plasticard blocks, then I casted them in resin. I kept the masters, so the bases you see these buys on are the copies. It’s also a theme. I tried to make it look like a brick promenade they are marching/charging down. I wanted some variety, so I added some dirt patched and damage. The abrupt stop on the one side is actually going to be a water feature that my cavalry will be galloping through.

The scheme is inspired from the Knights of the Blazing Sun in Warhammer Fantasy, or bees.

Super excited to get my first game in.

I absolutely love the look of this Squad of Dakka Jets. The yellow is vibrant, the weathering ties them into the world, and the models are awesome.

These are different from the rest of the army since the painting scheme is Bad Moons instead of Evil Sunz. As much as it goes against everything Orks believe in, Dakka Jets don’t need to move faster in game, apparently.

I wanted green uniforms for my soldiers, but I got a great bright green. A similar green to Sir Robin the Brave from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. So, that’s how I themed my warband. Shields and capes will have the chicken motif with the checkered background. They look great!

The last of the harlequins are complete! 3 Troupes and a Solitaire. I have also glued the windows to the flyers and Starweavers.

Free hand of cartoon Cheshire Cat is on the Solitaire to top off the piece.
