They look grand - bases are excellent as always :tu: So this makes 10 Terminators now? How many more do you have to paint? I've run all Terminator lists and they are good fun. Maybe not very competitive but we'll see how 9th shakes out happy.png

The Astrogranite gave more peaks for some reason, not sure why as I put the same amount on I usually do but variety is good smile.png This is 10 Termies (plus Lord and Sorcerer), I think I have another 8... though I have a recollection I might have another squad.

 

I don't think 9th has done any favours to Terminators directly, it's pretty much the same as before but they got relatively cheaper by comparison to most so I think it's a better time than in recent memory for them thumbsup.gif Not that I wouldn't have been running them anyway, but you know tongue.png

Any trick to your basing?

Nope particularly, though I still have no idea what made the difference here but I'm thinking it's the difference between an almost empty pot or not so I will keep this in mind next time the texture paint is running out. The basing scheme is:

  1. Plastic coated playing card, skulls, pipes, etc as part of assembly
  2. Paint (Administratum Grey tiles)
  3. Apply Astrogranite (going over the edges of the tiles here and there helps with a more realistic look, plus quicker and easier :P )
  4. Wash Nuln Oil
  5. Overbrush with Administratum Grey (most of paint is removed from brush)
  6. Water areas painted Abaddon Black with water effect on top
  7. Steel Legion Drab sides

I used to add bits of the thicker Astrogranite Debris here and there especially on larger bases but it didn't seem to make a bit difference or look that great so I don't bother with it. Aside from the tiles the water helps break the bases up, and reduce texture use and of course skulls etc are accents to taste. Hope this helps thumbsup.gif
