+ Nova Terra Interregnum: The Alien Wars +

+ Space marines versus aliens of all stripes – not just classic 40k, but classic sci-fi. I've got a few bits coming to the boil here, so keep an eye out for more aliens soon – oh, and a couple of marines, too. Tomorrow I'll inload on the Castigators, an unusual (and very cool) Chapter. +

+ If you've got some minor xenos, or an obscure Chapter Astartes you'd like to share, let me know on the Facebook group. [+noosphericinloadlink embedded+] +


+ Faces face everywhere +

+ ...and while we're cross-linking noospheric feeds, the #faceyourart hashtag popped up on Instagram recently; with the principle of showing details of faces from your artwork. Being as I love painting faces, I couldn't resist a little photoshoot of some old favourites. +

+ While there's a fairly heavy Space Marine motif, I was quietly pleased to see quite a bit of variety of model types here, from Inquisitors to Blood Bowl – and it's really got me enthused to paint some more one-offs. +

+ Greenskins and dwarfs and ogres, too. I still think Sergeant Santiagon (above, centre) is the best face I ever painted. +

+ I did a step-by-step tutorial on painting faces here [+noosphericinloadlink embedded+] – any interest in a tutorial for other species? I quite fancy applying the principles to Tau or something. +
