Thanks guys.

 

Nah didn't get the LE captain since we can't use him in DA. I'm more of a gamer then a collector, I know I will probably use the Chaplain but not the Captain.

 

I am really lazy with edge highlighting I just hate doing it, don't have the patience for it even though it would make the models pop more.

Aw man, that's too bad. I'd have paid good money for a that one. Love the model.

Understandable. I skipped edge highlights on my last models as well, but I never skip them with black armour.

Hey gang and Happy New Year!

 

Been chipping away at a couple of things during the Christmas/New Years break.

 

I have Gosford Masters Tournament local area finals this weekend and had to rejig my list a bit as the didn't use any ITC or AUSNZ FAQs. Had to paint up another 4 Grav Cannons, 3 Dev Bolter Marines and put a Storm Shield on my Standard Bearer (promised GreyRavenC a pic when it was done).

 

Sorry for the shiny photos can never get the lighting right in my house. Might need to invest in a photo booth when I upgrade my phone.

 

I grabbed a spare Storm Shield from the DA vet sprue, cut out the hand and stuck it on.

The guys shoulder pads are extra shiny cause of the ardcoat before I put transfers on. They will dull down when I put on the matte varnish. Just gotta finish the bases before the weekend.

I thought I'd do a separate post for this. I'm super excited that I finally got my table with dice guard from my step dad just before he went overseas (two 4'x4'). I put my FAT mat on it to properly measure a foot either end as I wanted to do hazard stripes for a cool looking area to put your models as you are setting up/dead pile.

 

gallery_79185_10323_143399.jpg

 

gallery_79185_10323_1220299.jpg

 

I got so excited I started painting that night in the garage seeing as it was a cool night with very little humidity. I roughed up the surface with a scourer, put clear primer on and ended up doing about 5 coats of the yellow so I could tape it all off and do the black over the top as the rest of the table was going to be black also.

 

gallery_79185_10323_1286701.jpg

 

I left it to dry for a good 48 hrs. I bought some proper maskers tape and started to do even line spacing just using the width of the tape. Painted everything black after the tape was down, did abput 4 or 5 coats of the black and left it to dry for 24 hrs in the garage. Then disaster struck and my heart sank.....

 

gallery_79185_10323_1726075.jpg

 

The fricken tape peeled off some of the yellow on both boards! Ugh was so frustrated and didn't want to start again. I think I saved it though....

 

gallery_79185_10323_1421793.jpg

 

Decided to paint it up as battle damage with some rust. I was actually happier with the way this turned out. I'm still painting up my buildings for the board and waiting for my swamp trees etc to arrive from a terrain commission guy. The board kind of got put on hold with all the Tournaments I've got coming up (6 over the next 3 months). I'll keep you guys posted with more photos!

Nice save with the hazardstripes, it gives some character to your board.

Solrac:

 

I agree with GreyRavenC; the hazard stripes turned out really well. The rust effect was a great way to deal with the paint peeling.

Thanks for sharing.

Hey guys,

 

So I've been a bit slack with photos but I haven't been slack with doing hobby things!

 

These are a few models I've been working on:

gallery_79185_10323_399485.jpg

 

The Scout Sergeants with Combi Plasmas and Culexus that I needed for my latest Tourney. The Apothecary with Shield and Grav Gun (magnetised) for when I run ITC and CC events in my Death Star build. The DV Company Master as I needed a Master with Sword and Pistol. You can't tell from the photo but I actually cut out the Combi-Plasma and stuck on a holstered pistol. Was a lot easier than I thought it would be.

 

Last but not least my table is getting there! I've got some swamp trees and scatter terrain coming in from a guy making them for me and I have some more terrain coming soon that I have to paint up (more 40k buildings, Armorium Crate, Relay Pipes and a Plasma Obliterator). Here are the pics so far, enjoy:

These were taken just before a Tourney practice game I had with a friend of mine so more photos in my Battle Report thread!

So it's been a while but that doesn't mean I've been slacking!

 

Have been working on 40 Tac marines to slowly build my Battle Company collection. A few of these guys will replace my DV marines so I can get squad marking transfers on all of them to look shmick. Waiting until I see the Battle Company make ups with the new Primaris Marines before I put any numbers on though.

 

Also painted up a random Deathwing Sergeant with TH/SS cause a friend of mine is borrowing my Deathwing for a 7th Tourney this weekend.

 

So pumped for 8th!

 

Enjoy!

Amazing work as always and I did the same thing with a few DV marines I had in my squads got rid of them because the transfers are so much easier lol.

Hey gang,

 

Been really quiet on the forums lately. I've been really busy at work as well as getting ready to fly out to Florida/Mexico tomorrow morning for a holiday.

 

I have however been quietly doing quite a bit of hobby and thought I would share some pics.

 

I decided I wanted to re-layer the bone on my Deathwing Terminators. Where I had left them earlier they were still on the brown side and the newest sergeant I painted popped really well with an extra layer of Ushabti. I decided since I didn't have anything to paint for a Tournament, I would re-layer all my old terminators before finishing off the unpainted ones.

 

Here is a comparison pic of how they looked before:

gallery_79185_10323_162994.jpg

 

And this is what they look like now (I love how they have turned out!). I still have another 12 or so to go:

gallery_79185_10323_163146.jpg

 

gallery_79185_10323_188125.jpg

 

My Birthday was also a few days ago and got this guy on the WIP table:

gallery_79185_10323_198712.jpg

 

And last but not least I put in an entry for Armies on Parade at my local GW. As this years focus was "Themes" I decided to do my Dark Angels in defence against my Tyranids.

 

Hope you enjoyed the pics!

Sweet! The terminators came out well after their makeover.

 

It looks like your flamerdread is regretting his life choices.
