I’m also from Portsmouth, ready to join the forum and get to know you all!
I am personally more of a painter, I paint as a hobby as well as offering commission jobs on request.
I currently collect a few armies, 1 being my primary army, 2 being reserved due to 9th and another one I’m hopeful to start painting soon!
I will start with my current main army, Battle Sisters, I loved the army since I first started, I loved the fact they are strong willed women who just want to kick arse in the name of the Emperor and the ridiculous religious zealotry they encourage.
I loved a lot of the lore behind battle sisters but one order stood out for me personally, and that was the Order of the Bloody Rose, but wanting to save the armour colour scheme for a future project, (I will talk about it later) I decided to create my own custom successor order using the rules and symbol for the bloody rose, with this I wanted an army that not many other people would have, I spoke to Warhammer - Portsmouth, telling him that my primary colour for my army would be purple (fabrics and vehicles) he recommended a method to get a rose gold effect with a wash over Gold.
So that is the scheme I went with, naming my army the Order of the Emperor’s Light, creating my own lore, characters as well as being able to tie Celestine’s latest novel into the lore, I am happy to post it and show my work for far with it, if people are interested.
My 2 reserve armies are Orks, which was my main army before Battle Sisters came along and 9th killed them. Followed by a small army of Custodes.
My next project will be Blood Angels, and I plan on painting them in a metallic red scheme with a large portion of my army being Death Company (standard DC paint scheme), but work on them will be slow as I am still focused on my battle sisters.
So that’s a little about me.
If you would like to see more of my photos I plan on posting in the correct forums but here is a taste of what I’ve done so far, I hope you like them.
I do also have Instagram where I share photos but will not post on here unless explicitly allowed by an admin.
Stay safe guys, looks forward to chatting to you all!
