@Jegind Black undercoat, Mechanicus Standard Grey, Devlan Mud wash, then restore MSG, highlight with Codex Grey (Dawstone in nowadays).
On the lower pic we can see (if use some magnifiers smile.png ) little scratches done with 1:2 Chaos Black:MSG mix and pure Mithril Silver over it. Maybe some more photos tomorrow, as I've succeded to "scratch" a whole squad today.

 

Finally I've learnt a battle-damage technique that suits me =) I don't like a lot of weathering (rust, dirt,  etc) as big part of fluff says that marines are keeping their armour in a good conditions.

Hello mercbat,

I am interested in you recipe as well. It looks great! But what is "restore MSG"?

Thanks!

@Pork Chop Express "restore MSG" means - "apply Mechanicus Standard Grey again over all mini, except recesses, after washing".

@MosesGunn Thanks!

 

@SW1 You are welcome! I've aquired so much inspiration from the Fang that it's a honor to return some of it. :)

Keep in mind that my scheme is closer to "pro" photos on the first and second pages of this thread, last photos are "mobile" and a little bit darker than they really are.

Plastic dread from the BaC box.

Finally It's finished! Five times in a row I've tried to make hip joints till getting some satisfaction.

Unimaginable thanks to @Argyle for his "Fur and cloak" tutorial.

And from now - I would  prepare  for my ETL vows only.

Fenrisian valkirya, slightly more than a year old,  and a new job leaves very little time for hobby, but I'm softly moving towards a HH army.

So this is my first 10 Grey Slayers. Just half of the pack.

Where did those shields come from?

Space Wolves are badasses that operate just barely within the rules. 13th Co. didn't even know there were rules applying to how badass they could be. DepthCharge on the Space Wolves

I'm so pleased that GW have gone to such great lengths to produce these awesome Space Wolves basing kits. Wraithwing on the Thousand Sons Rubic Marine release

"The Fell Hand is a name that has been passed on through out the Legion. When one warrior bearing it died, the name is left to be earned by another. Thus it was passed from Floki to Volund to Erik to Geigor. And then the tradition died, because censored.gif Bjorn got the name and proceeded to live for 10 censored.gifmillenia." - Sagas of the Wolf Priests. Wispy

I think this thread need some revitalizing, so here is reincarnation of Ainar Adallson - Jarl of the Sesc:

Good job. The knotwork wolf is an original idea. What does it symbolize? Fate?
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.

Oh, I haven't looked at that angle yet. For now it's just my new jarl/company badge. :) I don't like decals, do like knotwork and this is the best I can repeat on miniatures without feeling myself "all-thumb'ed".

Lo, there do I see my fallen kinsmen, Threads cut by the foe I now seek. In bloody battle I will engage him, And carve my vengeance from his flesh. No ale shall pass my lips, At no feast will I indulge. No foe shall stay my wrath, Until my brothers are avenged. Ever shall I hunt my quarry, Across the Sea of Stars. Whilst I yet breathe, I will not falter, Until Morkai claims his due.--Bjorn's Oath of the Lone Wolf

After seeing FW preview I've  felt an urgent need to build Varagyr pack myself.
 
Keeping in mind Inferno Varagyr pic and fact that my  HH Vlka is seriosly less adorned than 40K, I've started:

 

med_gallery_81331_12757_17204.jpg

Pic clickable.

 

Still thinking if need some more runes, teeth or talon talismans, or try represent everything else with paintjob.

C&C are welcome as I open to any idea even if I wouldn't use it right now. msn-wink.gif

The Terminators are well painted and posed, but they can really do with more ranged weapons- some holstered pistols, at the very least, to show they're prepared.
