Thanks, SwaT and Dantay for the tips!

 

I''ll keep those two options in mind for sure. Another option would be the pewter ammo belts by DragonForge:

Or, and I should have probably led with this, as I really like these:

They're 7,65 mm long, perfect for the feed entries of the deredeo's autocannons. I know in that auto-weapon technololgy works with caseless shells, if you follow the fluff, but these just look too good not to at least try, don't you think?

 

Lemme know!

 

@Grizzly_bear: Thanks buddy! you know your Scythes have been a huge inspiration for me, right? I mentioned you a few posts back, because I think credit is due to you. :) :tu:

Augustus, using such awesome looking ammo demands forgiveness in taking smalls liberties with the fluff. 40k is practically powered by the Rule of Cool. :D

OK I went ahead and ordered the chain linked NATO 7,62mm ammo links. What I didn't realize was that these are even more life-like than I thought: each bullet and each link is a seperate item!!! Check out how awesome this kit is:

 

playkid_7.62-50-02.jpg

 

I'm really looking forward to building the Deredeo now! I'm also going to drill out some of the missiles in the missile pack, to enhance the feel that the dread's been in the field for a long time. Fluff wise, I can even rationalize the chain links on a futuristic weapon platform. In my mind, the modern looking original ammo feeds are basically belt feeds with an armoured layer over them - and I can imagine that the armour got shot up at one point, leaving the IFs to decide to forego with the armour entirely to prevent further jams. Or whatever. Rool of cool.

 

@Psychkic_scribe: Cheers buddy! I got the links!

 

@Otis: Thanks! And yes, rool of cool trumps everything. 

 

@Kurama: Haha glad you're on my side msn-wink.gif

 

@Bob Hunk: Cheers! Yes, weathering is such a rewarding thing to do. It's truly awesome. smile.png

 

@Chaeron: Haha yes, interim - you mean the dread or the fists entirely? I assume you´re thinking of CoC msn-wink.gif

 

@Grizzly_bear: Sure, buddy. Entirely earned and justified to give credit where it is due. Your Scythes are awesome and deserve to be drooled over. smile.png

That NATO 7.62 is a little expensive, but you're right, it looks awesome. The Rool of Cool is exactly the way you should go biggrin.png

 

In fact, all your Fists look pretty awesome so far for a loyalist... suspiciously so...

Those are some nice yellow marines, and that ammo belt is gonna look amazing on that Deredeo.

@Teetengee: Yup, numeral will be redone. Red+Green is a trick with the colour wheel. Normally, when you're darkening or lightening a colour, you add black or white, respectively. With red, that doesn't work, as you'll get goop and pink, respectively. So you have to add opposite colours. The opposite of red is green, so when you add dark green to red, you get a deeper, almost aubergine colour. It's quite lovely. Conversely, you can add red to green to get a darker green. I encourage you to experiment with it, because you can learn quite a lot from that alone!

 

 

I really have to thank you for this tip. I've been painting for...<oops, can't reach my toes in this sarcophagus> let's just say a long time. I never thought to try this. Awesome!

 

Your Fists continue to impress me. I was concerned about the "whiteness" in the decals but you seem to have handled the saturation rather admirably. Bravo to you.

 

Deredo...I wasn't too crazy about this model when it first came out, but it's such a perfect fit for the Fists and I really like your pose and I think the chain linked ammo will not only add a level of detail that will enhance the model, but don't be surprised if the idea...catches on. :)

 

Play on good sir!

Hey everyone! Work is killing me, but I managed to get one IF finished. I also built another three, minus the heads. 

 

Say hello to brother Brecht, who's in the process of changing a magazine.

Apologies for the bad lighting, I'm having the outside woodwork done, so the whole house is in stockades right now, which blocks all sunlight. So the yellow is kinda dulled out, but I assure you, the yellow hue is exactly the same as the others.

Replies!

@The Psycho: Cheers, yeah I found a linky to them on a 2008 post on a german forum somewhere. I searched for 'pewter ammo feeds' on google and it came up on the fourth page or something like that. msn-wink.gif

 

@Flint13: lol! Like Psycho said: you're one to talk! I'm just following in your lady-bootsteps with this, substracting I from VIII to get VII. So shut up and go back to your own fists, buddy! msn-wink.gif

 

@kizzdougs: I'll work on it as soon as it arrives!

 

@KBC: Haha probably. It's just that damn banana yellow... it's the best flavour and brown spots look good on it. 

 

@Slipstreams: Variant scheme? Interesting. Any ideas? I mean, it is 40K, but Deredeo's must be relics by then. So I'm very open to suggestions to 30k-ify this baby. 

 

@Honda: It's been that long huh?

Serisouly though: you're most welcome! It doesn't always work, btw, just with red and green hues. Both can be lightened with yellow, btw. I am thankful to you too for pointing out the brightness on the decals and made sure to apply decent layers of Matt Varnish over them before weathering them. thumbsup.gif Thanks!

@ShVagYer: Oh no, the picture and painting quality are beyond fine. I just didn't look well enough (and focussed on the bolter hand and not the other one) and was too quick to judge. It's clearly the grenade hand. :tu:

 

@Dantay_xv: Cheers buddy! the basing stuff is Vallejo Sandy Paste. It has an excellent texture and dries into a flexible goop that is just perfect as wet mud.

 

@Dragonlover: Trust me, doing loyalists feels super weird for (a) die-hard chaos players like me (us?). I feel like a super hypocritical traitor. It's just that Fists are so awesome. So incredibly awesome. To paint that is. Of course, they're weak, thin-blooded bastards who are doomed to fail in their quest to protect Terra. But damn is yellow cool to paint - especially after painting nearly 12000 points of traitorous midnight blue. ;)

Yeah, sometimes you just need a change of pace. It can get a bit old painting the same colors over and over and over again, even if it is for the glory of the Chaos Gods. 'Course, I haven't reached the scale of your army, but still... Like today, I discovered that I really enjoy painting Blood Angels. Who knew?

 

When are we going to see a picture of Venerable Brother Edvaard (Get it? Deredeo, Eddy, Edvaard? No? Ah well.) with the GLORY of his new ammo chains? Soon, I hope. Those things look absolutly badass.

 

Anyways, hope your workload lightens up and you can get back to our glorious hobby.
