Hey Hubernator, good to see some Phantoms off the page and on the table! green looks like a good match for SMP scheme and the grey works well with it!

little suggestion, you might want to try and take your pics in a different place, with the light behind you and shining on the front of the minis. as it is, the light from the window means the minis are in their own shade and you cant see the details (having said that, that would be quite appropriate for the Phantoms! :P )

Thanks Lysimachus ^_^ Yes, the lighting is fun, especially in my room where my shadow gets in the way when I'm taking a pic :P

I'll see if I can get better images up <_<

:D Your pahntoms look like their eyes have been burned out of their skulls in some horrible accident. But yea, I souldn't be talking since i can't paint eyes either. Overall though the models are nice and neat even though I'm really not a fan of the shiny varnish.

:P Yeah I don't like the eyes either. I'll need to work on that when I next do a helmless model. Trust me, it was much worse on my first go - it looked like I'd given them all battlescars and black eyes :)

Very nice. Although the paint seems a little thick.

@ Captain Mike. Viva is Spanish/Italian for "long live". So "Viva Metallica", as the method is called, would roughly translate to "Long live Metallics!"

@Favoured of the Emperor: I don't thin paints personally, I get a good finish with the paint as it is. Thanks for the comment :D

@metcalfedan: :blink: yes they are shiny. It's called gloss ;) I'm doing that to all my models so the paint doesn't come off :P Thanks anyway :P

For the record, I have tried thinning the paints before, and often made it too thin or the finish isn't satisfying for me. So I just use the paint as it is.

EDIT: Due to a rethink in my army, this unit was sadly stripped along with the scouts and separated. He now serves another Chapter.

Where have you been? ;)

Thanks for the comment. Next up is a tactical I think for that lonely multi-melta. That'll give my small army something to actually use ;) It's them or the vanguards that need finishing desperately.

Some nice models you got there mate.
only one tip you should thin your paint down a bit with some water.

I promise you, if I go down I go like a gangster and I will be firing the entire time!
