Gentlemen thank you so much for the comments, and biohazard, this so happens to be an update comment back brother.

So I've gotten the OSL done and finished on the chaplains eye lenses, now I didn't want some massive amounts of OSL but enough to give a more 'evil' look, given the brutality look of the pose I've done and made.


18814EF1-90B6-4937-AD97-71C5D770E360_zps

Unfortunately the light has washed out the blends on the bone helm and made it look very flat. But you can see the OSL just right hopefully. (Day light shots will be taken with the right back ground once he's finished)

Right into other parts of my project, my third tactical squad is getting some work in and I've gotten a lot done on the squads trainee 'medic' (counts as a normal bolter marine) as I wanted each squad to have its own look and indentity

C5F5EB4B-49D0-4FCF-B0CD-70EF5F821B84_zps

He's still a work in progress but yeah.

Last part. Last night I had to baby sit my nieces (my brother lives 40m next door to me, so no long walk) lol


62A1F3C5-21B6-45E0-8F38-34C5007B6D43_zps

So as I needed to black out a lot of armour parts I decided to take the baby sitting seriously and get my black armour let's done on my tanks by hand

E321E9B3-36FA-4B56-960B-614FB81B50E3_zps

Land raider only had one side done in the end, but I managed to get this started to one of the rhinos

Some fantastic work - as always - in this thread. I always enjoy seeing what you're up to, and I think that your Chaplain is suitably sinister. 

 

Looking forward to seeing your continued progress!

Great work on the chappy and the medic! Also, that black side is a smart way to hide that crevasse that is sometimes left on top of the sides of the rino builds. (I too am a quick builder, and it sometimes goes wrong...). It's also a darn cool colour scheme. :tu:

 

But wait: where's the apothecary's narthecium?

Would like to thank everyone for their messages, and for the symbol on the rhino that is hand painted, no stencil.

Right bit of an update......

Chaplain is now finished

C8F57D88-8A66-4011-9BB1-661EAAC1CF5C_zps


He's been imensely fun to paint and I've tried new techniques on him and really focused on the bone colour and the OSL on the eye lenses.

Onto my two tac marines I've been getting on with

6A47C381-0CC5-4596-A269-D2D1940025AB_zps

69A4EAA7-B868-47E2-B4A6-E4EE86DCDA9E_zps

And I ended up making this guy.....just because I want the models weapon load out and look and because he's my fav character

C4982A09-84F8-4661-AC33-CE014530DE36_zps

I know I won't be able to use him in games as kantor but I just wanted to make him and eventually paint him up in scythes colours

Hope you like the update people and as always drop your comments and criticism

loving this thread, can never get enough mate.

 

ive got two quick questions though:

 

1 - are you still using your same yellow recipie from page 1 of the thread? might come in useful for my imperial fists project

 

2 - do you have a planned recipie for your crimson fists scheme (i know youve only done an arm so far)? as that might come in very useful for my RT crimson fists project.

 

thanks and look forward to more kick ass models

Question 1: still the same yellow, I stocked up on the current colours I use to ensure I can paint a big project.

Question 2: I have a massage Crimson fists thread on here as it goes, they was my first big project, and what I'm doing is ATM as my money is accounted for in re using some
Of my Crimson fists models, stripping them and then adding them to my scythes

Thanks for your comment also

Thank you bro.....hopefully this update you will think the same.


So in May I have a big game coming up against a tyranid player who plays give fleet kraken (big cheer I hear) lol any way, we wanted a real story telling game so obviously in running ultra chapter tactics but he's also allowed me to take kantors profile and rules just swapping out preferred enemy:orks to preferred enemy:tyranids.

So me being me made the scythe version of kantor....he's a captain for fluff terms.....here's what I have

Captain Vindica of the newly formed 3rd company

As Captain of a Sythes strike crusier, Vindicta took to the void with the rest of his chapters fleet to do battle with the Devourer as it attempted to rest orbit of Sotha. Despite destroying one hive vessel and crippling several others his vessel, the sickles strike, was hit by tyranid boarding organisms. as he fought them in the corridors his ship broke apart beneath his feet. With only his mag-locks to keep him to the shattered hull plate he could only stand and watch as the tyranid bio ships dropped scores of organisms onto Sotha, he could only scream impotentnly as he watched his world, his people and his chapter be ripped apart.

Picked up by a vessel of the Ultramarine reinforcement fleet after almost a full terran year in the red dream he was determined to have his vengance.

Pictures, he's still a WIP still Got to get rid of the fist symbol on the power pack

Nice! It's always awesome to see models and fluff taking precedence over the restrictions of the existing rules!

The Pedro count as looks ace as does your Chaplain and the recent tactical squad. It just goes to show what a mix of armour marks and parts can do to make space marines look really unique. I wish I had some more mark II armour parts kicking about in my bitz box (even though I've always felt mark IV was my favourite). Keep up the good work Grizzly.
