Sons of Horus Razorback

For the past couple of years I've taken part in charity army painting projects. Every year I struggle with my light box. So this time around I think I am going to use a new LED setup. One of the boxes waiting for me when I returned from vacation was a little LED light box from South Korea (Foldio Studio). These are the first test shots. The photos above were taken with both LED strips turned on. I know the LEDS are a bit bright, but I liked how it exposed every bit of color modulation. 

Now, I know the razorback turret is not 30k, but I wanted to be able to use my Sons of Horus in regular games of 40k using the space marine codex. I like the idea of thinking of them existing the warp after some compliance action and finding themselves in the 40k timeline. 


  1. Fantastic work! I love the little detail work in the open door.

  2. Looks great in the new light box, John - the only caveat to consider might be experimenting with different color backgrounds depending on the color scheme of what you are presenting. Your painting style is so clean (even when it's dirty) - it's amazing. Ever considered doing something a bit grisly (Khorne/Night Lords etc..?)

    1. I might have to paint some tyrannids in order to get some gore in. I am toying with a desert highway of death display board for my IG tanks.

  3. Beautifully done, you heretic! Hah!

  4. John,
    Don't know if you saw, but they just released the foldio 2 (you might have just missed the kickstarter). It's big enough to fit a stompa in it!

    I've been so happy with the foldio, but have had to adjust my exposure settings to compensate for the bright lights. Keep a set of spare 9v's by too, as they will dimm over time, and your photos will start to vary.
