@son of nocturne
Thanks mate ^_^ .

@Terminatorinhell
For my "cold" blue recipe you'll need VMC Sky Blue (GW's lightest blue) and VMC Foundation White. Basecoat with Sky Blue, then next few layer you'll need to add white to the blue, more and more, and final highlights with white.

@faol
Thanks to you too, I'm waiting to see your up coming IH. ;)

Sarge for got some paint on him today:

Your lack of slowness is disturbing ;)


The first Tact squad looks great :P

Still can't help but feel you need a bit more bionic bits here and there, however these minis are coming out great.

How many points of IH are you planning on modelling ?

Only bases and metals though ;) . I'm getting better and better with metallics,
and here's a spot, which I'm very proud of:

I love that your IH have a very battle worn look I'm planing on having an extra lascannon in mine.
If you can hang them back behind cover they can blast units at range especially enemy armor :drool: keep them coming

Thank you :D , it's really great that you shared your warm comments with me so many times.

What do I have for you today, my fellow brethen? Only Librarian power!!!

He's going to have tons of bionics of course, the idea in his stance is that he's floating in couple feet high and powering up with psychic energy.

I think you should stop right now Kik :lol: Seriously I love the idea of a floating libbie. Where are you going to place bionics?

Only one detail: If the tabard piece and the cloth piece on his chest is the same cloth piece, dont leave the gap under his belt. It doesnt make sense to me ^^U

Keep working!

Okay you came by at 100+ MPM (minis per minute) and I did even notice this update :eek although I could has sore I seen my screen blink at some point in time :P

The missile toting marines look great I like how you switched the markings on the leg, and I'm quite excited to see how the librarian will turn out. The GS work looks great with the robe are you going for the loose look so I think I see why its dipping below the belt. What other bit do you plan on adding to him I'd like to know?

@Albreck
There is no way that I would stop now! I'll add bionics to to arms and legs, and head already has a bionics. :D
Tabard is kinda tricky actually, I could fill the gap with green stuff, or I could leave it like that, as it is, and paint it that it' wont bother :P . Other plans include making a force staff for him, shaft will be made like I always had, but the staff's head is still one big question mark. I though have Lysander's Thunder hammer head in my bitz box, but it is more like fist than hand...

@faol
You know that I don't paint that fast ;) . Your point of view about tabard is very interesting too. I'll be thinking what to do next.

How about some plastic card and Gs? It should be easy to do. If this doesnt work u can try with an old sm fist from 2nd/3rd ed. some wire and gs to do the open palm..

Think about it ;)

That Lib is turning out fantastic kik :tu:

You've definitely spent some time and effort into thinking about his pose.

I do agree that something needs to be done about the top of the tabbard and where the torso cloth sinks into the belt.

On the other hand... Why CANT it be two separate pieces? ;)

These were pretty much speedpainted, painting white starts to get frustrating in a long run :P . Notice the quick and dirty white :) ?
