Great mini, those skulls look nice and polished!

 

Thank you Magnus!

 

Coming along NICELY !!!!

 

Thank you kind sir!

 

Got enough for a group shot, yet?

 

Hehe the rest of the Retaliators are primed now, this is the first dude I'm painting up. I wanted to test some stuff before I did the rest. I'll batch paint the others when this guy is finished. Stay tuned! :tu:

 

Your claws are very well done Leviathus,  keep it up!! biggrin.png

 

Cheers buddy!

 

Oh yes! I love the way he is coming along.

 

He will make the Tyrant proud!

 

Thanks a lot Hush! He's eager to serve the Tyrant of Badab! biggrin.png

Another update by yours truly!

The paint job is done, what's left now are de decals! I'll snap some purty pictures of this fella in the weekend.

I'm happy of how all the colours worked out. I really wanted to do a test run before I began to batch paint. But now I can happily work on the rest. ^^

Now this fella needs a name.... Hmmm

Autilus Kraal?

 

Looking good! I especially like the black shield and the "Fear Us" on the chainsword. Nice touches. :tu:

Hehe glad you spotted that "Fear Us" :D too bad the "us"' is a bit wonky tough lol. Need to touch that up when I do the transfers.

Like the name by the way! But I'll use it for a other one ;) it's a bit too fancy for this down to earth guy :D

Just because your "bro" has a "gun", doesn't mean that it has to be his actual name. I mean seriously! Besides, telling people you have a gun when you're trying your hardest to conceal it behind a shield... well, that just doesn't work, does it? :teehee:

And since most people struggle with just simple freehand symbols, I think you can be happy with your slighlty wonky writing. ;)

Definitely a light issue. The first marine was photographed outside so the silver was way more bright and reflective. For this shot I used my crappy hobby light haha. I'll be taking some better shots in the weekend, but I'm using my light box nowadays instead of going my backyard. msn-wink.gif

 

But I'm glad you like them so far! I'll be painting the rest soon so stay tuned! ^^

Well there he is, done and with decal! biggrin.png I did had to fix the shield tough as it was too dark to see the Tyrant's Claw properly (herp derp). But nothing a quick re-paint couldn't fix! Alright here are some "studio" photographs of our jolly good fellow:

The other chaps are already eagerly lined up in the painting queue:

I am pondering on a new recipe for skin for the space marines though. The colours I used for some of the Auxilia (Cadian Flesh tone for example) are way too orangey for my taste. I'm looking for a somewhat more pink-ish and paler skin. You guys got any tips of paints I can look into?

That retaliator looks menacing Levi, good job. Can't wait to see how his brothers turn out. Have you thought about using tallarn flesh and then highlighting up to elf flesh (not sure what their modern day equivalents are called)?

Thanks Soric. Cadian Fleshtone is the equivalent of Tallarn Flesh but I find it too orange. I think I'll look into the other skin tones of GW or perhaps Vallejo and do some tests.

But... but... not even for showing off.. unsure.png tongue.png I hear ya, I was going for a slashing pose but later thought that's not the way to slash with a knife. Anyway, the rule of cool applies here I guess. Thanks for the crit! :tu:

That Retaliator looks great, I really like the off-black shield. Which colours did you use? Also looking forward to seeing the rest of the squad!

Thanks Dos! I used Dark Reaper as base, darkened it at the bottom with 3-4 layers of watered down Nuln oil and highlighted with Dawnstone.

Thanks for the recipe! And somehow it doesn't surprise me that the Tyrant declines all responsibility in situations where he can mess up big time. So much easier, isn't it? :D

Indeed. in fact its my understanding  from what i have read(limit take with much salt) that only the higher apotheracries and some of the veterans worshipped chaos and that elements of the Inquisition who belive that humanity grows stronger in times of strife and will fall if allowed to be lax (who LOVE to create civil wars) pulled the strings to make the badab war. Also that Huron was corrupted by his apothecarys after his mortal wounding.

I wonder where you read that. Never heard of that piece of fluff before. Is it part of some newer fluff?
