This thread is been repurposed to accomodate the new E TENEBRAE LUX challenge progress.The first two page depict the atrocities committed in the previous LPC vow i took.For those of view who wish to follow the new challenge jump to page three or either enjoy(?) the painting from the start.

Good work Brother I,

I post pics by saving them in a Flickr.com account(free) others use photobucket. Then you open the pic there, right click and copy pic location, then jump back to BnC, open a new post, find insert image(IT'S GOT THE HILL AND SUN IN A LITTLE PIC ICON) paste the location there and voila, comment and smile

Ok so now a minor update.I failed to obtain a camera to upload those pics i promised due to illness,but illness also means free time,so we have another two complete,asmodai non the less(well almost complete i just couldnt find the courage to paint the eye lenses)and i need to do a small touch up on the interrogator chaplain.

Also made a tweak to the first post in order to include the list of the oath as a reference,now if i could make my lazy pal hand over his camera this week...

Also seeing the progress i made makes me confident,should i finish should i expand the oath?What do you brothers think?

Nice brother!!! I think your best should be the Libby! You are in a good shape to see this thing done on time! Is it only the 5 Vets still pending?

I'd like to take a closer view but the problem is not the pictures themselves but the way you uploaded them. Try uploading each one as an image instead of putting them all together as one image... If this is what you've done - I dunno...

Keep 'em coming!!!

I uploaded them as standard images as per the instructions above.I fear it is the camera and the file size rather than the way i uploaded them.Will work on them.
Really you think the best is the libby?I aint no fan of extreme highlights and i thought i overdid it.

Yes its the five vets still i will have them soon though.I might throw in a tac squad for the fun of it.

I am also taking ideas as to make the apothecaries armor a bit more distinct,i think its too flat...

EDIT:Have managed to resize them a bit but as per the instructions above i cant post them any larger here any further info on the subject of placing pics would help.

Looking good brother! a pretty damn healthy progress made too!

I wasn't keen on Asmodai's backpack myself, soo I'm swapping it over for one from the DA vets box.

I really love your Company master, Your ezykiel, and the Termy Chap.

You've put me to shame brother!

EDIT

For the Apothecary, mud and dirt, battle damage, and most importantly lots of blood splatters! all that battlefield surgery and he doesn't have a coat of blood yet? :D

Thanks for the kind words brother,well to be honest i wasnt too keen either but i wanted to keep the old schoolness those represented thats why i kept them :P
Now if only can finish my conversions of art accurate beakies....that would be old school hardcore!

Cant say my skills can put to shame anyone really,you are doing a great job yourself i am sure of it!Your ideas for the armor are great,hope i can pull em off somehow...

I actually stole the looks from the dawn of war series.I am using them to signify veteran status(you know those guys that are in the know but are not in the terminator companies)

Thanks on the both of you for the kind words. I will have the other marine finished by the end of the week and time permitting ill throw in a tac squad inside as a bonus.

And heres a bonus.A deathwatch marine inspired by Vazzys writing.I had him unpainted in a small skirmish today vs a friends nids.
He and his squad got some nid warriors wielding venom cannons.So for fluff reasons i tried to model his armor arm as been distorted/dissolving by acid(threw it in some white spirit):

Congrats Brother! Good to see the completion of the vow - you were at 90% too long... :huh:

I have to tell you, love the Deathwatch Character! I think this is great, the modelling and story-telling by fellow hobbyists interracting like that!

Now, for your "Vow Complete" sig, check out either my LPC thread here in our forum p.6 post 130 or go the PCA subforum on p.24 post 587.

Congratulations again on completing your vow!!!

You sure?Everyone else that bothered to stop by here seems to see them.

Btw i finished three more, after a hard days work of Gstuffing and gluing problems.I just cant handle greenstuff right...

Anyway,the first two marines of squad 'salvage'* are 98% complete pending minor modifications.


Also i managed to repair an old school banner barer that has the pole snapped.After attempting to gs the thing two or three times i ended up drilling the power fist holding it and simply glue it inside.All it needs now is to paint the banner the right arm and attach it.

On another note, another breakthrough i made today is finding a way to paint lenses, i very much like the effect of gloss varnish on them so from now on i am varnishing the things.

I also decided that i will keep a uniform bolter colour, thereby i completely renounce the red bolters and i will paint them grey as depicted on our codex cover.

Give me some time and by tomorrow noon ill have posted pics.

* i name them as such because they were bought off e-bay at one tenth of the price (they were the old DA boxed squad i think 2nd/3rd ed?) and were painted horribly and included said snapped banner bearer. I stripped the sarge and bearer but i decided to paint the rest over.

If no more inconveniences arise by the end of the week,i will start a surprise project...Stay tuned.

Any advice on varnish brands and prices?I want one that doesnt give a shiny finish and doesnt endanger the paint.I have heard horror stories of models becoming shinier than day,fleck the paint,ice the paint,remove the paint(last one seen with my own eyes)and so on.So far i only used the purity seal spray which to be honest i want to avoid since the price to content ratio is not to my taste and the Vallejo gloss varnish which is shiny.
