Those look great and that camo pattern really pops! Well done. :)

I needed something to fill a gap between a couple of big guns and an armour plate on the side of a Snakebite cyboar and thought of your tutorial...

It’ll be painted up with Ork glyphs.
I think it’ll help to make the model look like it’s moving at quite some speed too.


I love how it looks, and plan to try it for banners in the army too (though I might give it another coat of watered-down PVA to stiffen it up a little).

I'm glad it helped you out, and I agree, it definitely gives the feel of motion. :)

Awesome! What do you think of the result?

I also have a new figure to post for this. I forgot to snap any pics before it got painted, but I was in a rush for the deadline of March of Legions. Here's my take on the Exodus sniper from the XX Legion with a tissue cameleoline cloak.

I did something a little different on this one, using some heavy duty paper towel for the first layer of the cloak on his back and sides so that the outer layer of tissue would 'hang' properly. Once the paper towel was dry, I carefully laid the tissue over it, wet it down and fixed any shape issues, then brushed on the glue. :)


Is it possible to get a brief rundown on this most epic of colour schemes? Genuinely inspiring mini.

I don't remember what specific colors I used, but it was a medium grey base color and then a dark blue-green color that was most likely Coal Black from the P3 paint line was mixed into the base color for the stripes and dots. The cloak was painted grey as well and then shaded with washes and the entire figure was given a dusty appearance with pigment powder.

Very WIP, and the attempted freehand isn't complete, but here is my first tabard with this method at various stages.

I had meant to use it before, and even have a couple scouts in the middle of shaping at home, as well as a backpack banner. It worked out well with this attempt at 'true-scaling' the Captain/Marshal since the only Termie legs I had were from the DA Vets kit and made it easy to cover the prominent emblem on that leg.

As you can see, I also am attempting to make a 'shield cover' in similar manner; kind of harking back to the medieval/Crusade style. Need to prime it though.

Not to revive too dead of a topic, but after seeing this I decided to use it for my eliminators made from spare bits from the multipart kit and while it's still very WiP I think they look very good already:

To get them to look correct I'm going to gs a smooth transition between the parts of their shoulders that have molded cloak already and probably add some buckles like the regular ones have

How durable are they now?

They're a bit flexible but they're strong, once I prime them I'm sure they'll get more rigid

Yeah, the primer will make them more rigid, but even then I wouldn't call them all that durable. Be careful when handling them. ;)

Oh yeah, I completely forgot to thank you for this tutorial a couple years back BCK - I used it for my Raven Guard recon squad and it turned out great:
