Unboxing: Angron, Primarch of the World Eaters

Welcome to the unboxing post of the third Horus Heresy Character Series kit on the Workshop! Gracing my workbench this week is Angron, the Primarch of the World Eaters, the first Primarch ever released by Forgeworld. Similar to the Fulgrim unboxing I’ll note on the box contents, post detail photos of the sub-assemblies so far and comment on the overall quality of the kit. So without further ado, let’s take a look at this beauty… hop in if you dare face the wrath of the Red Angel!

Unboxing: Fulgrim, Primarch of the Emperor’s Children

Welcome to the unboxing of the second kit on the Horus Heresy Character Series from Forgeworld in the Workshop. This week I’m tackling Fulgrim, the Primarch of the Emperor’s Children, which is arguably the most complex kit I have ever attempted to assemble and paint in my hobby career. In this post you will find detail photos of the pieces out of the box (this time with Foldio assistance!), post-cleanup comments, a few pointers on how to assemble the figure and lastly a fully assembled and tacked figure at the end with closing words. If you’re interested, do come in and be illuminated by the Phoenician!

Side Projects

February has been a slow month in the hobby front for me. Sometimes it’s work, other times it’s procrastination getting the best of me but in the end the result is the same: little time spent on substantial things and increasing the number of WIP projects. This weekend has been no different – I put off a lot of my backlog in favor of another kit out of whim. Check out some visuals of this new endeavor after the jump.

Tutorial: Wet Blending

12.01.2015 Update: I have put together a shorter version of this tutorial using Prezi. You can find it here

Welcome to the first tutorial on Roemer’s Workshop!

Today I’ll be sharing the technique I used for the force weapon effect on the commissioned Dreadknight model‘s Nemesis Greatsword. Wet blending can be used on a variety of places however it is generally used to apply NMM (non-metallic metal) effect on miniatures’ metallic parts: swords, armor plates, shields etc. This is a demanding yet rewarding technique for those who would like to improve their paint work. Hop in for a gander after the jump.

WIP: CSM Obliterators #1

Quick but significant update today. I went back to the Obliterators to continue cleanup and assembly to the point where painting would not be prohibited. However I soon realized that the “short clean-up session” would turn into a much more complex situation. Check out my progress and struggle with these beauties after the jump.

WIP: Mutalith Vortexbeast #1

Here we go, the first WIP entry in the Vortexbeast project. The spare time from the weekend and the past holiday proved to be very fruitful indeed: I have completely assembled the model I will put together, cleaned the spares from the sprues and even assembled alternate heads and pieces for the Slaughterbrute in case I opt for magnetizing the beast. Check out the progress on this kit after the jump.
