That stripe really changes the tower - for the better I might add.

Thanks Brother Ophamion! I actually cribbed the idea off a locomotive paint scheme that i thought looked really nice. One of the things I'm constantly impressed with is how big and how much detail this terrain does have. It's not overwhelming, but I could easily see spending way more time painting this stuff than I feel like should be devoted to terrain. Going to have to come at all of this in stages.

So end of the month later (after saying that I wasn't going to spend a lot of time on this), I finally have all the base colors and a very minor amount of shading done:

med_gallery_59244_7045_77924.jpgmed_gallery_59244_7045_276825.jpg
med_gallery_59244_7045_355371.jpgmed_gallery_59244_7045_21498.jpg

So the question now becomes, since I have spent this much time on simple terrain, do I move into shading and weathering, or get the remaining terrain pieces all base colored as well. I feel like I need to at least do the two pieces that will sit as the platform above this piece before highlighting.

Thoughts, comments, criticism all welcome!

Base color the rest first. As much as I hate seeing things not highlighted and you do amazing work. It might be better to get context from the other pieces. It may give you an unusual avenue of having shade on another piece that would allow you to do source highlighting or generalized highlights.

What is the terror of death? That we die, our work incomplete. But what is the joy of life? To die, knowing our task is done.

Impressive.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

The wolves are looking great. The small markings on the chainswords breaking up that larger flat area are a great touch. Your new BA duelling champion is a lovely conversion. You can really see him walking the halls of some great monistary giving spiritual and battle advice to his brothers in arms. Keep up all the good work.

GMB, I know it's been over a year, but unfortunately the terrain is still in that state - however, it must be completed for Kill Team, so I am looking to pick it back up as soon as I get my Tau Kill Team (below) finished off.

Impressive.

Thank you sir! (Only a little late)

Thanks! I seem to work in spurts every six months or so, but Kill Team will hopefully keep me motivated enough to get some things finished off. All of my different projects will be getting new additions later, but my sketch book has plenty of ideas for further Wolf markings, as well as some more Angels Encarmine and Stoneburners ones. And along with my Tau for Kill Team, I've also been formulating a Primaris Chapter to get started with (likely to be a Raven Guard or more likely Dornish in lineage).

=+--------------------------+=

I have finally started painting up my FSE Kill Team (no story just yet, haven't gotten to start playing or come up with a campaign idea just yet) - starting with three Stealth Suits. As you can tell, if you've followed this thread, it takes me forever to work on things and I rarely get units or anything else completely finished. I'm really hoping that Kill Team is what helps me change that.

The base colors for my FSE is slightly brighter than the standard, I use Mechanicus Standard Grey (which is honestly a little irritating, because it's almost Sprue Grey dammit) and Mephiston Red. The above all have their base coats of Mechanicus Grey, and you can see the limited amount of red I've gotten on. For the grey markings, I start with Celestra Grey.

Here are some other pictures of my FSE units I have done before (previously posted), but only the Fire Warriors are going to be able to be used in Kill Team (the scanner guy will probably be my Comms Specialist):

Shas'vre Ob'lotai 9-0 (a little big, so you'll have to Unhide them to look at everything):

Can't say I'll ever have the level of fondness for the Tau that I do for the Unforgiven, but I definitely think they are up there with the Wolves for me.

The Stealth Suits as they looked when I started:
med_gallery_59244_13266_50081.jpg

I since made a slight revision to my paint scheme: had been doing Mechanicus Standard Grey with two coats of Nuln Oil for my understructure/fatigues, but it didn't turn out well on the Stealth Suits - so I revised it to a 1:1 Abaddon Black:Mechanicus Standard Grey, and re-based the understructure. I tried to keep the Nuln Oil in recesses (although I'm going to have to redo a couple of them). I did the lenses with Leadbelcher and Stormhost Silver, glazed with Waywatcher Green. Once I get all the recesses shaded, it will be on to the arms! I'll finish all the shading and highlighting when I get everything together.

gallery_59244_13266_418504.png

Once I got everything base coated, I moved on to the shading, and brought the red and dark grey back up where they needed to be on the higher points.

med_gallery_59244_13266_4336.jpg

Once I got all the line highlighting on the dark grey and light grey completed on all three models, as well as getting the dynamos brought up to their highest paint layers, I managed to complete the first layer of line highlights on the red and it turned out thus:
med_gallery_59244_13266_334864.png

So this is as far as they will go until I get the arms and pauldrons done and on the models, then I will decide whether to give them their final line highlights and any spot highlights or just move on with them good enough for play. I only have the one done to this stage at this time, but hopefully I can get the other two finished in the next couple of days, since I really want to finish out this Kill Team with my Pathfinders, a couple of drones, and some Breachers.

Hopefully the matte varnish will kill some of the apparent glossiness that is throwing more reflection than it seems like it should be (everything has been matte paint so far, even the shades, the only gloss shade I used was on the upper half of the dynamos).

I appreciate the compliment! I struggle with finding and murdering my Inner Critic a lot (can already see a couple of things I want to fix on the models), and the bastard always seems to come back, so it's a slog, but definitely going to be getting these guys finished soon. Playing Kill Team is going to be my reward for getting these guys finished up.

Highlighting of the main bodies is done! Time to move on to the arms/weapons.
