So today this has had an undercoat then black from below, white from above then grey on all the surfaces. 

 

Ive now started to weather it.... this is going to be a loooooooooong process! 

 

Im using oil paints and the dot process with white, black, brown and a tiny bit of green 

I'll post a pic when I do the next panel

 

Ive done the door and the level immediately above it. Its hard to photo at the moment as its still wet. It will look better post a purity seal

 

It may be a long process, but it looks worthwhile judging from your results! ;)

Triple update tonight!

 

Im continuing to weather the bastion although Im getting bored with it now. I dont know if Im over weathering it as it looks like its had a real beating.

Good job on the fortress and the heavy weapons team. I love the base you made for Marbo.

Not yet, its just oil (brown, black, white, green) pulled out with thinners. Google oil dot weathering. 

Ill then seal it and then hit it with some powder on some of the top areas

No worries

Its basically green and brown 

so paint (or spray) them Steel Legion Drab

Then paint the armour Castellan Green 

Then wash it all with a watered down Agrax earthshade 

 

For the brown then highlight from pure steel legion Drab to a mix with Tallarn sand then a mix with Karak Stone

For the green then highlight with pure Castellan Green to a mix with Loren Forrext and then a mix with Straken Green

 

I try and blend all of the armour highlights and sometimes use Vallejo glaze medium to help get a smooth transition. This does take longer though so you cant crank out minis

 

I'll then do edge highlights with whatever colour and white

 

Hope that helps

 

Thanks

Ive had a plan for the chaos cultist champion since I saw its release and I finally managed to snag one this week 

I then set about taking the head and both arms off and using a dremmel to remove the body in the coat down to the belt

I then replaced this with a trimmed down guards body

Ive updated the chainsword by thinning it down and making it double sided. 

Ive also replaced the head with a FW one. 

 

This is all just blue tacked together while I fix the arms and create the folds in the material. 

 

Im not sure what he will be now though. A commisar or field captain

This is all just wonderful stuff but I think my favourite thing is that this is described as a 'small' IG force.

I feel like getting carried away with things is a brilliant trait. I began a few years back with a vague idea to base a Slaanesh force very loosely on a (then) romantic partner who hailed from Sevastopol and today have a 30,000 point soup list I'm working to (and that will never, ever come close to actually existing anywhere but Excel) with very specific design cues stolen from Russian/Soviet history.

This is what its going to become. It was a glue bomb when I got it off ebay so the whole back end has gone and replaced with plasticard and new exhausts. 

The turret is a bane blade turret cut in half and about 2 centimetres removed from the middle

 

Hopefully get some paint on next week

I thought about adding sponsons but it looks better for streamlining the sides than bulking it out. Might just add some stowage but it depends on my GS skills!

Once this is done Im thinking about building a troop dropship out of a storm raven 

I can sort the wings and troop areas out using plasticard but do you think the front of a SR looks IG enough if I just paint it green? or would you say change it up to re style it 

 

Think big Valkerie..... thats what Im going for

The Stormraven is a bit blockier than Guard, but not majorly so. I think some modification would be good to make something a bit more streamlined but probably be fine once you change the model enough with other bits if that's too much work?
