Blackstone Fortress - Warhammer Quest - 40K - Full Set Painted

In what may be a Herculean feat that I haven't accomplished for over twenty years, I manged to paint up a full set of miniatures from a Games Workshop big box game- before they released an expansion for it!


I knew I was getting Blackstone Fortress as soon as it came out. The figures looked cool and I liked the idea behind the game. I manged to get them all built within a week of buying it, and it's taken me several weeks to get it all painted up. Games Workshop figures sure have a lot of detail...


And the "hostiles"...

  



 



Unaligned Hostiles.
 

I painted the Chaos forces to match the color scheme of my cultists from the Assassinorum: Execution Force set. 



Glad to have this set done, it took a lot of time and a bit of luck- I had three inclement weather days which I used for painting. I haven't played yet, but hope to get a game in within the week.

  1. Fantastic paint jobs on all the models! It's hard to pick favourites. I do really like the antique gold look of the spindle drones, reminds me of a Victorian War of the Worlds aesthetic. Great job.

    1. Thank you, he was one of the first ones I painted and is probably my favorite of the hostiles.

    As I was saying...
    Amazing to see that you've finished the entire boxed set so quickly, not to mention the fantastically high quality on each of the individual models. Quite a feat - kudos to you, sir!
