Hi everybody! Just finished painting my Night Bringer for our 'Tale of X gamers' studio challenge. Loved painting this model, wanted to paint it for years, so I used the studio challenge as an excuse to paint it. So, here it is!

Hope you enjoyed looking as much as I enjoyed painting it. And a CoolMiniOrNot link if your the voting type

Grey Knights

We at Golem have been busy painting lots of Grey Knights! 

Bellow is a picture of just some of the Grey Knights we have been working on. A strike force painted by Martin Hall led by Kaldor Draigo, who was painted by Thomas Moore.

Furnace Valley Squats

We've thrown down the gauntlet at Golem to build armies for 40K6 at a rate of 250 points a month.  Curis's picked Squats - particularly apt as they're name-checked in the new 40K6 rulebook.

First up is the Furnace Valley Brotherhood Command Squad.  Brotherhood Lords are in charge of their Stronghold at a tactical level, leading the Warrior Squads in the thick of the fighting.  They're one step below Warlords who I'll model later in the project with ornate carapace armour.   On the left is Commissar Gustav (kindly donated by Luke), who is acting in an advisory rather than disciplinary capacity.  This Mark Copplestone classic is the only non-Perry miniature so far.  The Powerfist and Power Sword is quite overkill, but the model's too damn awesome to kit out otherwise.

40k Squats

Left to right: Commissar Gustav, Trooper Stoner (Bolter), Medic Faunts, Warmaster Curiz, Trooper Sterling (Stronghold Standard) and Trooper Gast (Battlesynth).

The first Warrior Squad is composed entirely of Perry-sculpted Squats.  Curis picked all the models with photochromatic visors as the translucent red looks gives the squad a visual kick, and also satisifes his pedantic side where in Rogue Trader squads were either entirely with or entirely without the eye protection.

40k Squats

Curis'd have liked to've avoided using the metal/plastic hybrid Squats in this squad (and make squads of entirely hybrids later) - but the Plasma Gunner is festooned with Heavy Bolter pouches and Curis has no oldskool Heavy Bolters from White Dwarf 97.  He'll split the squad up later - and might even split off the Squats with AK47s from the Lasguns.

Here's the whole 250 points altogether.  It's a nice nucleus to grow the army around.
