This is where I will continue to post updates for the Fang's winter advance. Afterwards, I may move it to my painting arena for additional works as I begin to tackle over twenty additional terminators and grey hunters... Then I have the vehicles left... don't even get me started...

Here is my finished (minus the basing) Rune Priest Rhapsody:

I am almost finished with the second WC/SS TDAWG and have begun picking out some detail on the Combi-plas guy as well. This means more pictures soon for you all!!

Enjoy!!

Now all you need to do is to magnetize all their arms....
I am not a fan of that blue, but they look very good. I really like your RPR's axe head on the staff.

I am not sure if you are being sarcastic or not, as I do magnetize all of my terminators arms.
I took an Ork axe blade and GS'ed it to one of the hammer sides of a thunder hammer (which I removed) and stuck the whole thing atop a standard bearers staff. Thanks!! :P

I love the now discontinued color Midnight Blue (which I recently found out is really close to the Necron Abyss foundation paint...) and decided a couple of years ago that I wanted to use that as my base color for my army. I mixed up a batch of my own color using Fortress Grey, Enchanted Blue, Skull White, and the remnants of a pot of Midnight Blue. They do look a lot less blue with out the camera flash lighting them up. But, I can deal with the pokes and jabs about the color, it's my army. Not yours. :)

Thanks for visiting, and have a nice day.

Thats cool that you magnetize. I didnt know you were already doing it.

And that axe head reminds me of the one on the codex cover art. Very epic!

So I have linked this to the Librarium Painting Challenge as well, so as to minimize the confusion I will make clear at the beginning of each post what models belong to what vow.

Winter's Advance/Librarium Painting Challenge:
5 Power Armor Grey Hunters, one with a Plasma Gun (Sub Forum Challenge only)
5 TDAWG, One with SB/PF/CML
Rune Priest Rhapsody in TDA (Sub Forum Challenge only)


And here is the second TDAWG with Wolf Claw:
Posted Image

I am finding my own style, f you will in washes and dry brushing. Things have been moving along quite well recently as I have hit my full stride. I see no reason all of the above listed models should not be complete by the end of February.

Looks like two layers of cork sheeting primed black.

Wilfebane is correct. It's layed cork board that I bought at Michael's (an art supply chain here in the US) for super cheap. Once if based black and then you layer a couple coats of dry brushing, it looks convincingly like stone. I'm really enjoying it.

Thanks for the kind words Brother Mjollner

How sturdy is it? does it fall apart or get bendy as it gets older? I'll have to keep my eye on your bases and see how they look after their painted.

I have only just started using it a few months back. But it does harden up a bit (not to the point of being brittle) after it's painted and Dule Coted.

Here's my Lone Wolf WIP on the cork:

I will post pictures here as the TWC progress and you can see how it looks on the larger bases as well.

Here is another update for the LPC. This is the last TDAWG:
(the power sword is only there because I was using him last weekend, the finished model will still have the PF)

And for grins, here is my Lone Wolf. What battle hungry wolf bent on the destruction of his foes wouldn't be wearing corpse paint??

i love your minis poses and the colors are rich and vibrant. one question though. why blue? or is it the lighting? (well 2 questions :lol:)
Conan: "Civilized men are more discourteous than savages because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split, as a general thing." (The Tower of the Elephant)
Conan: "Did you deem yourself strong, because you were able to twist the heads off civilized folk, poor weaklings with muscles like rotten string? Hell! Break the neck of a wild Cimmerian bull before you call yourself strong. I did that, before I was a full-grown man...!" (Shadows in Zamboula)
Conan: "He grunted with satisfaction. The feel of the hilt cheered him and gave him a glow of confidence. Whatever webs of conspiracy were drawn about him, whatever trickery and treachery ensnared him, this knife was real. The great muscles of his right arm swelled in anticipation of murderous blows." (The Hour of the Dragon)

Years before I actually started to play 40K a good friend of mine offered to paint up a Rune Priest for me. He showed me the usual armor color for the time (baby space blue) and I didn't like it at all, and I still don't. I did however like Midnight Blue. So he painted the RP up with the Midnight Blue as the base armor color. Ever since then I wanted my army to have that deep blue color to them.

Thanks for the pose props!! It seems to be my strong point at this juncture in my modeling career.
"I am a male model, not a male prostitute!
Modeling just sucks -- they made me take off my top!
I'm not modeling anymore for the two of you!
Well I guess I just had my first taste of the filthy side of this business."


EDIT: Here is the super awesome Logan Grimnar that the above mentioned friend recently painted for me!!

Their looking good RPR, however I suspect your a closet Ultramarine player. You can admit it, we won't judge you. Might laugh a little bit but no judgement what so ever. :D

I'll admit the Calgar model is one of my favorites (the new TDA one, or course), but I have no desire to play vanilla when I can play with tooth and claw!! I assure you that Brother Mjollner!! :lol:

I spent most of the weekend painting the base color on all of my grey hunters... Good lord did that suck. Now it's done however, and my army is that much closer to being finished!! More updates soon, with fun little pictures.
