Thanks for the help on the paint scheme. Sigh it seems that I'm going to need an airbrush. It seems like all the good painters now a days use them. Also seems that they are expensive.

I started with an ebay bundle that cost me about £60 I think for compressor and gun. The gun did me for about a year and is not the best but perfect to learn on. I have just upgraded to a a h&s brush wich was £100 and wish I had done it sooner, but I urge you to at least get a cheap starter set to get going, you will not regret it!

I just finished my first helblade. Awesome model, but kind of a paint to assemble. Especially the cockpit canopy is so flimsy I couldn't get it in the right shape, because every time I used hot water for one side, the other side would warp too.... Oh well smile.png

Hope you like!!

@Fangbanger and TheOne Marshal:

One thing about starting with airbrushing: immediately invest in a compressor WITH a tank. You will not regret that, whatever airbrush you'll take. Also, get a gravity fed, dual action airbrush. That's (IMO) the best for miniature painting. Here are some links articles that give you tons of info on how to start. Read them, you will not regret it: http://www.airbrushg...t-airbrush.html and http://theleadheadbl...01_archive.html

and the warped resin thing is exactly why i shy away from big forgeworld models. resetting a marine-sized autocannon barrel with hot water is bearable, but i saw spartans and other bigger models that were horribly warped and bent.

Forgeworld will always replace bits if you are not happy with them

i know and i did that 3 times for a set of extra land raider armour, but the hassle with waiting for the replacements made me think about ordering a "big" model again...

Sooooo beautiful I love this base for it as well. I can't wait for my airbrush to come in so I can try this paint scheme.

Yay! First unit of my ETL IV oath done. I already had one set of rapier quad heavy bolters, but now I finished the two from my vow.

@Wicced: I never had problems with FW - of course some of it is warped, but with some bending everything will fit. That's part of the experience!

 

@Aeternas: cheers mate! 

 

@TheOneMarshal: You should definitely try out airbrushing mate. Changed my entire painting scheme.

BAM! Here's the first of two Predator Annihilators in my vow. On a roll now. The whole weekend, plus Pentecost Monday to paint, paint, paint, paint. And maybe do some building on my Nurgle biker lord and perhaps on the Brass Scorpion.

I saw this and I'm still squeling like a school girl! Awsome stuff Augustes. Keep up the awsome work Augustes! I got my airbrsuh last week and I can't wait to try this out! Have you seen forgeworlds new paints at all?

Thanks Kilofix and TheOneMarshal! I do feel like I owe you all an apology - the picture quality of the original pictures in my last two posts was horrendous. So I redid them and uploaded them into the same comments for your liking. 

 

The Rapier Quad Heavy Bolter Batteries are uploaded here.

 

The Predator Annihilator is uploaded in the comment here.

but i hate myself for not posting earlier in your WIP, because i wanted to alert you to the mold lines on the gunner's arms and that is my only nitpick on this fantastic new midnight colored monster.

^^Thanks!... on the mold lines: I saw the left arm side, which I fixed. But now YOUR COMMENT made me see the one on the right arm side. Proof that ignorance is bliss. [sarcasm]Thanks, Wicced![/sarcasm] tongue.png

Alright, last tank in my first vow finished: the second Predator Annihilator. I tried to really go to town on the trophies, and am starting to actually use Space Marine helmets (something I for no reason in particular shied away from in the not too recent past). Anyway, here his is, in all his glory:

Hope you like! On to the last four bikers, then to the Brass Scorpion, and then my first ETL IV vow is finished! :D

 

Replies!

 

@Wicced: I'll hold you to that, buster! ;)

 

@Eldrick Shadowblade: I feel you, brother. Black Legion are the second most boring Space Marines to paint, after Black Templars. To paint, mind you. The difference between the two is that you will end up with awesome evil Black Legion, and those other guys will end up with derpy Templars. ;)

 

@evildrcheese: Thanks doc! I'm so happy you liked it and more importantly that it was an inspiration to you. :tu:

Thanks , Wicced! I'm glad you liked the helmet idea, because it is my most favourite part and a recent 'innovation' in my trophy repertoire. :tu:
