Just to show you some progress and to celebrate completing the first cut of the new engine for the marine painter ... here is a progress shot showing the old painter next to the new one ..

Posted ImagePosted Image

As you can see the colours are more vibrant (and true to the actual colour chosen), the edges are smoother (less jagged lines, very visible on the left shoulderpad), no more halving and quartering all central areas are now split left and right and therefore more flexible. We also have got the Armour Mk correct this time instead of a mix of Mk8 & Mk7, its now all Mk7 armour.

I am having to rewrite the wargear application from the ground up to accommodate the new painter engine and we also have about 60 new pieces of wargear coming too. The advantage this time is that when I rebuilt the Space Marine Painter engine I built wargear into it from the get go. Here is a small example I put together with the chest emblem and helmet changed.

Brother Argos

Brother Argos stepped forward into the reflected light of the schematic. The Techmarine went unhooded. The left portion of his face was framed with a steel plate, the snarling image of a Salamander seared into it as an honour marking. Burn scars from the Brander-Priests wreathed his skin in whorls and bands. A Bionic eye gleamed coldly in contrast to the burning red of his own.

When he spoke, his voice was deep and metallic.

I'd just like to mention that I would like to use Matt Ward's face as a pinata for the abominations he has made of the two Power Armour Codicies with which he was entrusted.

This is a very awesome upgrade Brother Argos, I really love what you and everyone else is doing! I'm assuming this new painter is much more fluid in adding and removing wargear as well?

Also just on a more technical side, I understand you'd have to basically re-write the entire program, but wouldn't it be better in the long run to make the painter more like a flash or java program (or some other language I don't know) and put more of the processing client-side instead of server-side? Then again it'd be easier then heck to steal...

@ Dezartfox : Hey Tim :D ... Terminator is being redone too .. all should be revealed for the Painters in a couple of weeks ... the new Wargear a couple of months after the painter release. Drop me a line on googletalk and I will show you some more of the progress.

@ insomniacpyro : It will be easier to use and paint ... the wargear interface is being written last, so I am not sure on that yet! ... Stealing and reproducing is the issue. I have the Flash skills to reproduce it in flash if I wanted, but I prefer php :D

Great work, Brother Argos. The new Painter looks fantastic. Is there any chance to see in the future an Eldar Painter (as they are my second army, still without the painting scheme)?

I already replied to your question above ...

Two weeks for the basic painter to be re-released ... another couple of months maybe for the wargear add on.

If you want wargear now use this version .. v5

http://www.bolterand...com/smpbeta.php

and press wargear when you have finished painting the marine.

There are also many other painters ... you can find them here ..
