Very nice models! You really pulled off the lighting effect on your commander's power claws and I like the dark color scheme.

Well, I managed to finish my ETL vow, and here is a crappy picture to prove it:

 

6lt7.jpg

 

 

...and then I had a little moment where I was suddenly inspired by the new BL supplement artwork. An hour later or so, this guy showed up...

He was fun to build, maybe a bionic Plague Marine? :P

Is there any chance that you could provide close-ups? They look great at a distance, but they reveal none of their details, which is what I'd like to see smile.png

 

Nice looking Bionic Marine thumbsup.gif

 

EDIT: Oh, and since the board ate up the post where you gave me a short tutorial on how you painted them up, would you mind posting it again?

@Ludovic: It's Kantor Blue, drybrushed and highlighted with Sotek Green, the HQ have a Kabalite Green highlight as well. After that it's washing with Drakenhof Nightshade. Legion markings are Kabalite Green highlighted with Warboss Green.

 

Here are my two plasma guys. (that has developed a bad habit of blowing themselves up in each battle)

The other ones are right next to them here, I'll take more pics tomorrow...sleepy time now! I've been up almost 24 hours now, woooohooo! :P

Ok, I am trying out some various ways of photographing my models...and it's not turning out as I would have liked...

 

I only have my crappy iPhone 5, and various A4 sized papers to reflect with. I should probably build a lightbox but I am too lazy...for now...

 

This time I tried angling them a bit compared to the lightsources. Result: meh...

Aaaand that's it! I had to fix these ones up a bit, I painted them while half asleep and they looked like crap! Painted, yes, but not something I personally would be happy with... :P

 

More crappy pictures:

I am never going to get good at taking pictures...

They're damn good. Keep it up! ;-) and don't worry about all that picture-taking... I can see things well enough and I reckon that the majority or at least a big percentage of the B&C too. ;-)

Much love on those lighting effects and power weapons!
Wish I could get mine like that... <looks at the block-blue plasma I have>... one day Gadget, one day!

Keep it up, they look really great. :)

Thanks!

 

So I'm going to a 1500 point tournament 1st of nov, and have a few tings to build until then.

 

First up might be a lord with an above average flamer on a...jetbike?

I need to find some more "jetbike bits" around my boxes though...

@Brother Melice: I'm not good at taking pictures or making tutorials though, but I took pictures and we'll see.

 

I cut off the legs at the groin, and cut off the toes. Then I positioned them as I wanted and built up new heels with GS.

 

abrm.jpg

 

Result:

pucr.jpg

 

The knees already have pretty good angles I found out, it's just the feet and groin that are attached in an unnatural way...

 

@jimmy101: I drybrushed with a very dry brush with Mournfang Brown, and then a smaller area with Karak Stone.
