Operation poopypants

“Sir!” “...” “Your Omnipotence!”
“Lord Primarch!”

Navigator subofficer Trusk was trying to wake up his primarch who was sitting in main bridge in his tactical command throne. Even sound asleep the primarch was an imposing figure in his gigantic dark purple full body armor, long pitch black hair and pale skin. At both sides of the sleeping lord commander stood silently Legio Penetratus astartes in terminator armour like ancient statues in guard.
Tusk added some volume to his requests, but clearly was not sure if he actually wanted to wake the sleeping behemoth up.

Preparing for 40k campaign

After a long break, my interest got sparked again when Antti kicked off a fluffy, relaxed 40k campaign in my club.
This is ideal for me as I have stuff allready, so less painting, and there are no obligations or competitive games.
 Loyal to my style, I started painting something that has absolutely no effect on the games. I made a base to my chaos spawn (probably).
The technique is the same as allways, but with some new elements.
First was really long stalked lichen I found 3 years back at Sarek national park. It has been soaked in glycerin, so it retains it's flexibility.
 The second are the leaves. I bought a leaf punching device from Greenstuffworld. I then painted a regular paper with random autumn colours and punched the hell out of it. The result is good, and I will get the other version of this in future. So five chaos stars *****!
 Third new thing was a texture roller, also from greenstuffworld. There are several, but I got the "evil rune" -version.
It is also great, and saves time it you have to texture something. I have to take a look at the other versions, and probably get couple more.
Four stars ****!
