Mix some grey with some Lahmian Medium and wash it over his face. Easy peasy. If it gets too grey, highlight it back up with some thinned down Elf Flesh. :tu:

Sorry to hear about your back issues, hopefully they will get you back up with a quickness.

Once again very nice work. If I had any nitpick it would just be the bases, they look like they could use a bit of highlighting and a good cleanup around the rim. Still the paint work is fantastic, especially given the issues you're having in real life.

Man I'm imagining Landa riding with both hands sticking out, smacking heretics down as he rides into the distance. Beautiful bike squad, looking forward to seeing more.

Heh, to be honest I'm surprised you didn't claim one of VIIth Squadron for yourself Knight, given your evident enthusiasm for, as you so eloquently put it, bikurzzz. msn-wink.giflaugh.png

Well, besides the fact I just don't do group stuff, as proven by my annoyance at the ETL, I have no inspiration whatsoever when it comes to naming people. I mean, I had to use an online name generator for my Adepta Sororitas fanfiction, for crying out loud.

 

Knight of the Raven: AAAAARP nooooooo an unrilled barrel?!?!?! Heresy. No idea how that happened, but luckily it's super easy to fix. Thanks for spotting it! Want to claim another model from the list? There's a full squad of Jump Packers waiting for names!

See answer above.

 

Lovely captain. I just hope he never feels to need to pick his nose, because then that's going to be awkward. laugh.png

Alright, next up is a couple of WIP pictures of the first half of XI Devastator Squad. I've recently purchased four sets of Devastator legs from eBay, and put them to good use in this squad. I went for a very tech-y look for these guys. The sergeant's body, for example, is of course a Techmarine body. He's not going to be used or painted as a techmarine, though - more as a battle-hardened veteran that is semi-learned in the ways of Mars, and is perhaps wearing void-hardened armour of some kind.

 

They're all named by the participants of the Tale of 20 Hobbyists thread, which has some awesome projects going on.  Check 'm out!

Replies:

@ AndrewChristlieb: Thanks, buddy, I'll be alright. I'm thrilled to report the back is recovering. Slowly but steadily. I'll be sure to clean up the bases once I'll get around to painting the ones on these guys, above.

 

@ Vaicorum: Cheers, friend! I'm glad this is the mental image he invokes, as that's exactly his function ;)

 

@ Knight of the Raven: Sad to hear you're not up to naming any dudes... sad.png About the nose-picking business: you do realize the power gloves can come off, don't you? ;)

 

@ Biohazard: Thanks! Yeah, just monotone yellow is a bit too much. The assault marine's bikes have to be yellow, and their possible jump packs also are pretty big surfaces, so I thought I'd mix things up a bit by making the leg and torso armour of all assault marines black. It's going to be a bit of a problem with the Command group bikers, though, as those guys aren't formally assault bikers and so have to be yellow themselves. I'll fix that probably by adding in lots of other black elements. 

 

@ Psykic_scribe: They can come off! Silly boys ;)
 

@ Andvarr A: Who, me? Warm yellows are pretty easy with GW Averland Sunset. It's the cold yellow I'd hate to paint.

They´re done.

 

May I present to you XI Devastator Squad?

 

XI Devastator Squad is, together with XII Squad, the first to employ the recently developed portable Graviton Cannons. The new technology is a further development of the Graviton weaponry that was used during the Horus Heresy, made in the two millennia following the Horus Heresy by Techpriests of the Forgeworld Tigrus. With its strength in damaging heavier equipment, the Techmarines of the Imperial Fists have had an interest in the technology´s development since its inception, and have employed it during the recent quelling of the Risa Uprising, where the Imperial Fists eliminated the heretical pleasure cults led by the Risa Hedony. The weaponry is deployed by experimental squads, with a slight but authorized deviation from the Codex Astartes, in that they are led by Techmarines learned in Graviton technology. Recent tactics show good results in combat effectiveness through deployment in Drop Pods, in conjunction with Assault Squads.

WP_20161026_006_zpsdihfmpny.jpg

 

WP_20161026_005_zpszycfuk6y.jpg

 

 

Veteran Tech-Sergeant  - Jahan Hotar - Dosjetka

Jahan Hotar was one of two Techmarines sent to the Forgeworld Tigrus to learn the appropriate maintenance, upkeep and firing rituals associated with the newly developed Graviton Weapons. He has learned to create strong bonds with the Machine Spirits of the weapons, and has functioned as the commanding officer of the experimental XI Devastator Squad. As such, he is obligated to wear the traditional officer's crest associated with that rank, a practice he grudgingly agreed to. More interested in the technological aspect of the weaponry, he has come to value the advice and tactical support of XI Squad´s comms officer, Svadir Har., and has formed a bond of friendship with him.

Devastator%20Squad%20IX%20Sergeant_zpsal

 

Vexillarius - Bellos Galiko - Aquilanus

Blessed with a rash and impetuous character, Brother Galiko was honoured with the Vexilla for actions during the breaching of Risa's weather control system, which destabalized the atmosphere, allowing for deployments that eventually led to the annihilation of the Temtibi Lagunate pleasure cult of Riza. Galiko is known for his crude and brash behaviour, but also for being menacingly effective in close range support.     

Devastator%20Squad%20IX%20Vexilarius%201

 

Heavy Weapon Specialist (Grav Cannon) - Cynerik Deorwin - Brother SP

A stoic Astartes if there ever was one, brother Deorwin has proven crudely effective as a destroyer. Selected for his incredible strength, he wields his Graviton Cannon with ease. Unlike his squad's fellow weapon specialist brother Hason, however, he never boasts his achievements. Instead, he retreats in silence, listening to the tales of victory and destruction, with which his brothers share their achievements with him.

Devastator%20Squad%20IX%20Weapon%20Speci

 

Heavy Weapon Specialist (Grav Cannon) - Crassu Hason - Aeternas

Aggressive and terribly strong, Brother Hason was drafted from his penance in IV Squad, where he served a five year penance duty for, after having been wounded, disobeying an apothecary's orders to accept treatment and returning to fighting instead. Brother Hason is a prideful man, who often boasts about his squad´s achievements among his brothers of 5th Company. He always relates the stories of his fellow squad brothers as well as his own in these tales, however, and so has earned the respect and friendship of them in return.

Devastator%20Squad%20IX%20Weapon%20Speci

 

Battle Brother - Jurgen Falku - deusmex

Brother Falku's keen eye earned him a position of spotter in XI Squad, after having served as the comms officer of IX Squad for a period of two decades. He is a fine brother of the line, and despite his relatively old age of 65 standard years, does not mind at all his rank among his younger brothers. Instead, he relishes the opportunity to develop new tactics with which to rain destruction upon the enemies of mankind.

Devastator%20Squad%20IX%20Spotter%201_zp

 

Armorium Cherub

The original condition of the Inquisitorial authorization of XI Devastator Squad's deviation from the Codex were that their activities would be monitored at all times by an Inquisitorial Acolyte. Captain Landa steadfastly refused this on the grounds of it inhibiting operations. Eventually he agreed that an Armorium Cherub would accompany the unit during deployments, so that they would reap benefits from the inclusion, as well as limiting recording of XI Squad´s activities to in situ operations.

The gravcannons' barrel have differently-sized holes, in case you haven't noticed. And I was looking for Svadir Hark in the squad until I realized he was in the other half.

 

They look good, I love the techmarine sergeant especially.

Still dislike how gravcannons look though. tongue.png

I was joking. Take a name from someone who actually wants a model named by them; giving you a name when I'm not interested would be disrespectful, insulting and unfair to both you and all those who do want to name your models. Even joking about names was all of those, so I apologize for that.

@ Uveron:: Ha! THanks, bro. They were actually already finished on Monday, but Photobucket was acting up again so I couldn't post the completion until today tongue.png   PLEASE tell me what you mean with 'Spying some IP jumping stuff". :D

 

@ Knight of the Raven: Well, I wasn't joking, but dead serious. It's hard enough to find enough frater willing to get a name, so if I can twist your words into a name that is cool and claim that you claimed a name, and provided one, sort of, there no-one stopping me from doing so! laugh.png No backsees! ;)

Thanks for spotting the different Grav muzzle hole's sizes. That's weird, as they come it two halves and thus have set sizes. I guess the washes clogged and created a very thin layer. I also hate the Grav Cannon look, but what can you do? IN a Skyhammer Annihilation Force, they're just too good not to include....

 

@ Biohazard: Thanks buddy! Yeah it allows me to differentiate them a bit. Wanna name another dude? See below... ;)

 

@ Race Bannon: Thanks buddy! You're all over them, and I'm not complaining. I'm very glad you're so enthused by them, actually. It's a motivator to do more. You're very welcome to claim a name, by the way. Take your pick:

Fine. If anyone asks, I will deny everything and claim it's an urban myth, just like the moon landing and Elvis' death. tongue.png

It might have been glue too.

 

The games I play are too small to feature formations so I never will have to suffer using gravcannons. Gravguns look cool though. Maybe you could just glue two gravguns together and call it a gravcannon? Might be a little orkish though. laugh.png

 

Weapon Specialist (Flamer) - Totis Adors

Well, my (current) biggest space marine army is Salamanders so I guess it's fitting.

 

I just hope there's no jokester in that squad XIII though.

 

"Heh, heh, you adore toting that flamer, heh?"

Fantastic work on the Devastator squad, buddy, in spite of the terrible grav cannons! The Techmarine-based sergeant works brilliantly in IF colours! And since I painted that same cherubim model earlier this year, its inclusion in the squad made me smile.

 

I only have one teeny tiny smartarse gripe: How is that kneeling guy ever going to fit a standard Mk. IV helmet over his bulky augmetic eye...? ;)

 

Anyway, keep up the fantastic work!

Thanks to you too, buddy. I totally agree: Grav Cannons are fugly. They just suck. The only thing cool about them is their backpack and the giant light of the gravamp. 

About your tiny smartass helmet gripe: Easy. You cannot see the bulky right side of the helmet, in the picture. There's a small potrusion that fits straight over Brother Falku's augmetic eye piece. It even has an internal mechanism that connects with the augmetic. So Brother Falku only has to put on the helmet, and then click the pieces together with a tiny dab on his right side. Like so:
