Miniature Painting & Sculpting Hobby Blog

My First 40K Army

Sunday, January 1, 2012

It wasn't until recently that I've found Warhammer and the world of miniatures, which has sparked my interest to get back into painting.  I've never played the games, nor have an inkling of the stories and mechanics of the gameplay, but I guess I'll eventually get to it at some point.  Until then, I've started collecting some Space Wolves and Skaven to paint, here are some pictures of my first ever Warhammer 40k painted Space Wolves.

These were my first experiments into painting miniatures and I've already learned a few things.  1) Visually from what I've seen and compared, Space Wolves have to be the most complicated painting-wise. 2) Tiny details are tiny. 3) Those drill holes in the barrels of the guns really do look good and I'll be doing that from now on. 4) Invest in better paints, Folk Art from Michael's that I've collected over the years work fairly well, but I managed to "borrow" some Citadel paints from a friend and they really do have a huge difference in the feel and quality.
