Yeah, there switch to 5 man units has kind of dissuaded me from making any - mostly because I can no longer make 6 man squads to please Slaanesh.

Well, that's the way it goes though. Look at ALL the primaris units, eldar aspect units, ork units, and so on, they all come with the weapon type of the unit. I actually thought it was wierd the champ didn't also get a heavy wep.

Huh. I had no idea! That doesn't massively change my IW plans though I guess. Just less bolter Marines needed happy.png Does the T5 make a huge difference?

I'm not sure that T5 is that much help, especially on a small squad your opponent will want dead. They probably won't get a great deal of small arms sent their way? Probably want a couple of squads to help absorb hits.

 

Making decent progress on the Cultists:

Added a couple of lines to the coat to make an eight pointed star:

Not bad work, hopefully be getting them done soon :) Though that said, daylight doesn't last quite as long now :confused:

The coat looks good! Is that a kitbash or does the model have the big coat?

The coat is from the Escher kit, but if I remember right isn't quite intended for a walking body so required a little bodging. I also did some chopping on the left arm so I could change that, though I can't quite remember what that was exactly. I think it might have been the upper left collar bit was attached to the bolter arm? Otherwise the right arm is just a simple weapon swap at the handle (it's part of the coat too) smile.png

I like the use of the Escher gang as cultists. Very Slaaneshi.

It's the fabulous hair that sells it, the bright colours just complete it tongue.png Not to mention plenty of weapon choice in pistol or rifle builds :) I was mulling over Cultist choices just before they came out so maybe a bit of Tzeentch at play too - this after originally not wanting any Cultists at all (but then I also originally planned to just do a Kill Team...) laugh.png

 

Not sure why it took me almost the last model to add in some dyed hair, but there's one more model's hair to do and another 10 after that msn-wink.gif

Various hair colours help a lot with making a squad pop. I paint a multitude of colours on my Sisters and I think it's a lot better than them all having the same colour as model-wise it makes them a bit different and I think makes more sense fluff-wise too!

As the Sunder's lore (such as it is) is a bit outdated I'm taking part in the Liber's swap challenge, but first things first time to also update the colours with the help of the painters! A bit of mixing and matching gets you:

 

gallery_30308_10249_37946.png

 

Sadly no MkIV helmet but it still works as the Sunder make use of MkVI too. Or more accurately they make use out of whatever they can find, hence the mixing and matching... maybe Yjun finds MkVII helmets displeasing tongue.png

 

I'll update the opening post too, about time it was changed for the title as the Daemonettes have their own home now too (all these armies flying the nest...).

The red definitely doesn't look vibrant enough to do your models justice and the white looks more like metal/silver to me. sweat.gif

Yeah it's always difficult to find the exact paint match in the SM Painter. Unless it's white or black or one of the main basic colours (like a bright red) I always find it looks a little off to me! Oh and you forgot the soft armour, pretty sure that's black on the Sunder :)

Getting the hexcode of the colour you used is pretty easy with a proper picture and a pipette tool like in photoshop and such, however the main problem is that the painter has some kind of filter over the whole thing that distortes the tone of the colour a lot to give it a metallic sheen.


Also fun fact the hexcode for the bright red on the Rhino picture two pages ago is #E24B36 ;)

I grabbed the colours from pictures of the models, I played with different shades of it but none could match it properly. Same with the white - that's pure white on the painter but there's only so much it can do. I missed some of the soft armour anyway so I need to adjust it, I'll probably play with some filters to try and better replicate the melon :)

Here's an update, played with the colours a bit including getting all the rivets the right colour. As a bonus added the belt bit, and I improved the eye piece colours:

I double checked, the soft armour is definitely metallic tongue.png Now I can finally start properly laugh.png
