The VM models are great
They can be a pain though I found Loctite gel is great for bridging those gaps though

What's that?

 

Unfortunately, a box fell on the infantery squad just now (don't ask how). Salvaging, lots of broken stuff. Heads and weapon pieces still missing. X:

Oh well, that was kind of a PITA to fix.

 

Expect smaller and slower updates from now on, lots of work to do.

 

Today's update: some special weapons. Sniper rifles fit the army's background quite well - I may just run them as regular laser rifles, though (they don't seem so great). Sooner or later, I'll get some Melta SWS.

 

As usual, photos are kinda potato quality. I'll try to get some better ones of all the models when there's basing (so in the distant, distant future ;) ).

All's well that ends well? As long as progress is made that's the important thing :tu:

Progress is being made, but slowly. A lot to be done at work right now.

 

Mini update: painting the second Sentinel now. It's really hard to match the first one's colors and I'm not too sure why.

 

3BKNn4Z.jpg

 

a ) Wrong colors in general.

b ) Lighting more agressive.

c ) Lack of varnish (aka lighting is okay).

d ) Lack of weathering

e ) All of the above. ;D

 

I'll just progress and see how it turns out, hoping for the best. There's a lot of experimentation to be done with the weathering as well as I have no idea how I've done it. Kinda annoying.

 

Best regards

Rabenfeder

They look good, the difference can be fixed with a bit more weathering.

Did you use the same undercoat? I once painted 10 models, five at a time using same colours (had written them down after making the first five) and realised the first five had been sprayed black, the second five white, made a lot of difference!

I've never ever used a white primer. Black primer for life. msn-wink.gif

 

 

Sentinel number 2:

tVsmBGs.jpg

 

With the upcoming coat of varnish, I think it'll look sufficiently close to the first model. The only thing totally off are the white stripes. It's more muted on the old models, not too sure on the color, though. Maybe something bone-like on a white coat?

 

Next thing on my list is rethinking what to do with the bases. The previous steps where tedious and looked mediocre, so I may just do glue + sand + x.

When every model so far (13 models and 2 sentinels...) are based, I'll try to get a decent picture.

After that it's some more infantry and either another chimera and a sentinel or more victoria miniatures.

Good job on the Sentinels.
Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

Camera's still not better, but lighting was okay - so here's some pictures of the army so far. Redid the old bases so they match the new ones. The bases itself are not too creative, but oh well.

 

Group picture - the 2nd Rifles till now

Heya!

Just a small update on what I'm working on right now. Photo quality is bad because of camera and lighting, but you get an idea of what was done.

 

8scD9iK.jpg

 

First, some more guardsmen. Photo took out about all details, you may have to believe me both those and proper shading are actually there msn-wink.gif They look similar to my other guardsmen.

I'm out of bases now, but they will probably be one half of my second infantry squad.

A chimera's next so they don't have to walk around. The color of the guardsmen in the background is actually way more close to reality than the first picture.

 

And that's already it. Chimera will take a while, so don't expect anything anytime soon. When she's done, I may take another group picture with proper lighting.

Great to see you're progressing still, you're doing well by focusing on the bread and butter soon you'll be able to branch out :tu:
