I stumbled over this forum looking for some inspiration for banners and venerable dreads, got sucked into the big 6e threads (that made me aware 6e was a thing...) and decided I'd register to keep thread views in check. Then I decided I should toss up my small contingent of dudes since I recently just about finished them and I'd love some feedback. There are fantastic painters on here.
HQ options, not including a WIP armless power armor Librarian. "Belial" needs a banner. I have parts coming to kitbash up some much better looking claws/hammer/BAMF varieties:
Venerable Brother Machariel:
Deathwing squad #1 (Tactical, need to magnetize arms and get a bunch of assault boxes), lead by Veteran Brother-Sergeant Trajan, who will get a banner:
Tactical #5, the in progress, made-of-guys-I-started-painting-when-I-started-40k-in-6th-grade (they've been touched up some). The Plasma Cannoneer is new though:
and, for kicks, the small collection of BFG models I picked up just because of how awesome they are. I'd like to play it someday... I also consider these the first models I painted that actually looked somewhat good:
I had a hell of a time getting a picture setup. Most of the photos are a bit too blue while the Devastator picture is much too warm, but average them out and you should get an idea of the colors I'm second guessing how I've done all the Deathwing, too: it's a flesh wash or Bestial Brown undercoat, with a heavy drybrush of Bleached Bone, then a highlight brush of Skull White. I've never had a great time just painting on BB straight and don't like how GW is doing the robes now but these are coming out, I think, excessively white. I really like how Elmo has said he does them here though, might have to try that.
