Our member Kevin Ayres has been working on some stunning looking Chaos Marines. The quality of his work is really impressive.

Starting with his Chaos Lord in Terminator armour…

And a berserker:

Image

And a lovely terminator with lightning claws…

Image

Best of all has to be his Forge World Contemptor Dreadnought. He got this before there was a specific chaos version, so he has done a great conversion:

Image

Finally a shot of them all together…

We’re really looking forward to seeing more of Kevin’s army, though his standard of painting takes a little time.

Declan’s Blood Angels

Declan Kelly has led the Drogheda Games Club since its inception, so it’s no surprise he has built up one of the most impressive armies, his blood angels.

A recent addition has been his Vanguard Veterans, mostly constructed from leftover bits found in his extensive bits box.

Image

The standard bearer is particularly noteworthy:

Image

He has built up a large Vanguard squad.

Image

Declan’s bike squad is also beautifully constructed and painted:

Image

Also mostly from the bits box, Declan’s Terminator Chaplain:

Image

Of course any army is only as good as its ability to get into battle, so what better way than by Drop Pod?

Image

Finally, the Venerable Dreadnought is ready to seek out and destroy enemy positions.

Image

Liam Nulty has been putting together a rather impressive winter themed Imperial Guard army. They are nicely painted, but I think it’s the basing that really sets them off and makes them unique.

Here’s his Sentinel:Sentinal

And his Commissair:

Unfortunately some of the other models we photographed were out of focus, so we’ll have to save those for the next update, but here is a group shot:

I’m really looking forward to more of this army.

Eamonn’s Eldar

Just a couple of units from Eamonn Colgan’s Eldar army today.

First, his Fire Dragons, ready to blast though your toughest armour with their fusion cannons.

Image

His Dire Avengers stand guard, their shuriken catapults no less lethal in their highly trained (and well painted) hands.

Image

We look forward to seeing more of Eamonn’s army soon!

Fearghal Gorman has painted some rather nice Chaos Space Marines.

Here are his Chaos Terminators…

Image

And a close-up of his Lord.

Image

Best of all has to be the Helldrake.

Image

And here they are all together.

Jamie’s Orks

Jamie Myles has been part of Drogheda Games Club for about 3 years, and has been a dedicated follower of Orks since splitting a box of Assault on Black Reach with his brother.

Over that time, Jamie’s painting skills have improved considerably, so I’m delighted to start this blog with some of his latest models. He has also become an accomplished player of Warhammer 40K, and has delivered crushing defeats to many of the club’s most experienced players.

First up is an Ork Bommer.

Image

Jamie has gone for a very Orky red, and has loaded plane with as many bombs as he could, as well as a grot gunner for good measure. I really like the Ork boys running along under it too.

Image

Next, we have his Deff Dread, which he’s managed to make really menacing:

Image

Following this is a looted tank, obviously freshly stolen from the Imperium. You can still see where they busted the doors open. I’m sure when they’ve had it a little longer they’ll stick on some Orky symbols and “kustomizations”.

Image

By now you’re saying, “where are the greenskins”, so without further ado, here are a squad of Lootas, which Jamie uses to devastating effect on the battlefield.

Image

While the Lootas unleash pain from a safe distance, Jamie’s Nobz like to get up close and show how nasty they can be, led by a warboss, and accompanied by their pain boy for those all important invulnerability saves.

Image

Finally, here’s a close up of that boss, “sarge” of the nobs and the painboy.
