The Sons of Medusa
Posted 23 November 2008 - 11:16 PM
My first model for my Badab War Campaign army, the Sons of Medusa.
I really need to get a new white primer, the one I have is pretty much garbage.
Now, if I could find Scorpion Green in a spray can.....

This should be a good looking army once its done. Your DIY army show cases alot of your talent.
I use the Dark Green for my DA. I bet the light green would work perfectly for you.

Here is where we stand at the end of the night:
Tod, Thanks for the heads up on that spray! I will have to look into it. I know of at least one shop locally that carries some Tamiya stuff.

- Grimdarkilitude: an evolving term and its definition
- Discriminating taste in bits and kits
- Conversions kept strictly to theme, not for conversions sake
- Thoughtful assembly and posing
- Consistency of tone and quality maintained across entire force
- Paint scheme/recipe selected to yield good results in light of hobbyist's skill level. Doing what works.
- Special techniques (such as chipping, weathering, NMM, OSL, freehand, detailed bases etc) applied in support of general theme, not as a focus
- Background referenced and honoured continually throughout modelling process

How did you achieve that green? Scorpion green and then what?
Posted 24 November 2008 - 03:42 PM
Xeper, The green was Scorpion Green base, washed with Thraka Green, Highlighted back up to Scorpion Green, and a final highlight of 70/30 Scorpion Green/Skull White.

putting on too much is like having thick basecoats
coming along well though...if you wanna try something to make the marine feel apart of that dirty brown, you can wash him with the same redish brown(dark flesh?) and it will make him weathered slightly, or mix it with the green and just get a slightly redened/darkened green...you can do it to the white too....it all helps tie the colours together more thats all

Starks, I've always been a complete primer coat type x.x I guess it was a little OCD of me. I really need to find a new spray though, the stuff I used really isn't working out as well as I'd like. I think I'll hit up the stores today and see what I can find as far as sandable primers (Thanks Lunchbox ^_-). As for bringing the brown into the model more, I am going to see what the Tamiya rust does for me in that regard. I haven't used it yet, but I think it might work out nicely for what you're suggesting. As always, great suggestions. Unfortunately that just pushes my paint time even higher ^_-...
Son_of_Russ6, I really don't have much worked out for them in terms of how they'll fight. I'm actively thinking/working/talking that all out with others around the web, as well as the BoLS guys who are writing up the campaign book.
I spent some time at work yesterday finishing up the first model. He's still not 100% finished, he needs a chapter badge still (I'll be using printed decals for that), and I'm not 100% finished with the weathering just yet. But it gives you a much clearer image of what I'm going to be doing with them. Anyways enough talk, on with the pic!

Just a thought.
The Helm came out great. If you want to do a non-glow effect on the eyes then just do them like you Grey Death chapter -- gem effect.

Molotov, As to veterans, I figure Laurels would be the easiest way to go about that (free handed as Ultra's do). Though Bionics (since they are Iron Hands successors) will be used as well to help distinguish the distinguished ^_-...
Well, I don't think they've ever been conclusively listed as being Iron Hands successors (though it certainly would make the most sense.) There's a nice piece of second edition art which features an Ultramarine marked out with a Medusa's head. (I believe it's reproduced in the most recent Codex, but I'll have to hold off before giving you a page reference. ) I always liked the idea that they could be a Grecian-themed Ultramarines successor - a melange of Grecian themes and ideals could be used - anything from Jason and the Argonauts to the Minotaur in the labyrinth.
That said, Iron Hands ancestry is perhaps the most obvious answer, and you can definitely get some mileage out of it.
