HOBBY: The Bigboss’ Week of Blogging #84


From the Emperor’s Children, through the Silver Tower and even the Genestealer Cult this has been a busy week!

Hi! I’m Tommy from the blog bigbossredskullzI’m also on Facebook. Here’s what I’ve been doing the last week.



Experimental paint scheme as I venture out in uncharted “waters”. Thoughts?

Silver Tower


I basically went for the classic barbarian look on my Darkoath Chieftain – by Crom!

More pictures here.

Genestealer Cult


With the Ordo Xenos part done I’ve started on the cult. Very early stage though.

More pictures here.

That’s it for this week! Make sure you check out my blog regularly, I update several times a week!

Next week it’ll be more of the same!

    The paint scheme’s alright, perfect if you’re going for 18″ away look; it’ll look amazing army wide. But that modeling. Dude, how did you do the tank?!? IDK how you got the faces on the greenstuff, so perfectly, did you sell your soul?

    • Emprah

      Think its an old metal Genestealer Patriarch.

        Pointed Stick nailed it.

      Pics aren’t the best due to the daylight conditions but admittedly I’m better at building and converting rather than painting yes 😉

    That vehicle is cool, as are the barbarian’s hair and the cool “Bane” Genestealer.

    • Tommy Hovind Kristiansen

      Cheers euan!

    Your genestealer cult needs a limo…

    • benn grimm

      Or maybe a stretch rhino? 😉

    • Tommy Hovind Kristiansen

      Well this is just the early days of the cult so I’ll see how it develops though I’m more in favor of some wacky armoured vehicles based on an existing chassis rather than a straight up limo.

    I like the noise marine (Kakophonist?), always disappoints me a bit when I see them just purple, I’ve wanted to have a go at a proper jarring multicolored scheme as is described in the fluff for a while, but it’s really hard to make a multicolored marine work and look realistic; this looks suitably gritty whilst also capturing a slightly more colorful effect. Good effort.)

      Cheers! Yeah me too but it’s a daunting task to say the least 🙂
