Happy Halloween my Imaginary Friends!

Mark of Calth by Apologist from Death of a Rubricist - Such a simple miniature display. Despite the use of only three miniatures it is very easy to identify the source of inspiration.

Red Corsair by Kari from Spiky Rat Pack - I have liked the imagery of the Red Corsair ever since I first saw one of Christian Byrne's miniatures in White Dwarf many years ago. It included a tutorial on sculpting fur onto shoulder pads. My attempts were quickly destroyed to avoid any embarrassment. Something about being Space Pirates just clicked. The work-in-progress pictured below helps reinforce my thoughts of them as Space Pirates.

Alpha Legion Praetor and Apothecaries by Marc Raley from Marc Raley Miniatures - I stumbled across this blog by chance thanks to Dave Taylor. The entire blog is full of some great conversions and painting. I particularly like the three conversions below as they are all so simple yet full of character. Can see an example of the work-in-progress of one of the apothecaries here.

More Thallax by Dave Taylor from Dave Taylor Miniatures - Yet more of Dave Taylor's bronze army. I'm sure that there are others equally jealous of this growing collection of resin goodness.

Orgotts Daemonspew by Dan Harden from What's New Today - I remember once upon a time Games Workshop had free articles on converting and painting unique miniatures/armies. They even had free rules for wacky conversions and campaigns. Those aren't gone... they just come in the form of supplements and expansions a.k.a micro-transactions. Instead we have these amazing Youtube videos that go into great detail on how to paint some of the latest miniatures... yet the haters still hate.

We Die On Our Feet by Chaplain Mortis from the Bolter & Chainsword - The entire thread is full of some great inspirational resources on weathering Astartes from several Legions including World Eaters, Imperial Fists and Iron Hands. However, it is the Death Guard below that has really caught my interest. I am a huge fan of the black face plate on the Mk III helmets.
