After some hard thinking I've decided to help my brothers out. I've red and enjoyed (more than) enough here, and used some articles and tactics too (although I havent played a game this edition ).
So, it's time to do something back. I hope we win this, and I'd be glad if I can make that difference. Shoulder the burden, do your part, bla bla...
I have ordered some bases some time ago and the idea was to get a decent DW squad going. Times change, ideas too. I have painted some (old, plastic) terminators in the mean time, coloured like the Angels of Redemption.
When they came out I bought a few boxes of veterans, wanting to make a small army of Guardians of the Covenant. I still want that, though. 1 squad is in 'basic' colours, the other is primed black.
They are all shelved, packed, boxed, etc. Real life happend, and is still.
I have not lost my desire to paint though, and I do like to read these forums (well, DA, Liber, and Amicus to be exact). I do paint the occasional mini though, mainly Bloodbowl related.
Time is looking better though, and I should be able to finish 'stuff' soon (thesis). Painting a mini now and then IS relaxing, so why not use that as an excuse to paint a Death Wing Terminator for the LPC?
So, there you have it. Resin street-cobble base, and an old, multipart plastic terminator. All painted in glorious Deathwing colours in table top quality.
Assemble, get rid of moldlines.
Generous applying of wonderwash ehm... Devlan mud.
Drybrush with Vallejo Model Colour (VMC) pale sand (broken white, more yellowish then bleached bone).
Pick out highlights with the same colour.
Blend white/pale sand for final highlights.
Paint gun 'undercoat' red (forgot the name).
Repaint that with a better red.
Everything that needs to be metal, paint it black.
Lightly paint those areas boltgu metal.
Apply wash (smoke or devlan mud) to the metal, if needed.
Cheers & thanks for reading,
p.s. I will take some pictures now and then and post them.
I might even speed up the proces IF I paint another terminator. Shortcuts ahoy!
