Agreed, very nice colours on the walls. Makes me wish I wasn't so lazy with terrain :P

Thanks all! :D
Looking forward to getting my table finally set up.

 

Having said that my Mums in the country atm so may gaming basement has become the temporary junk storage area so we could make the rest how the house presentable while she was here... :ermm:

 

The BB colour scheme... good question...
I have to double check the specfic's however its a combo of
Vallejo Air

  • Light grey
  • Off white + mica metallaric
  • Agrax wash on the bolts + recesses

 

The gold on the barrel is a combo

  • Vallejo Glorious Gold
  • Full Agrax Wash
  • GW Auric Gold? Dry Brush

I will post the exact ones later when I get a chance, its a good record for me to remember too :)

Awesome Duz,

 

Would love to hear the (white) mix when you get the time. It's a very "Dark" looking white. Is it easy to replicate every time?

Thanks TWH!

Krash these are the colours I used
I dont know how easy it is to replicate
Given I didn't mix any colours I'm hoping fairly easy!

So made a seemingly simple hobby resolution for this year
Focus on finishing projects and avoid the trap of just painting tournament lists ...
Lets see how it goes!

First step: finish my 9th unpainted Bullgryn then go back and highlight the 2nd and 3rd boxes I had slapped together for an event

gallery_87434_11578_130941.jpg

Mission accomplished! :D
Maybe next I'll finally finish my Shadowsword

Its a weird feeling its like having to take medicine when working on these projects because I want to be distracted by something else
But its satisfying knowing I finally finished this project which began mid last year. So now I feel somewhat more motivated to finish my Shadowsword. Hopefully that'll convert into me wanting to paint the Baneblade chassis too. :tu:

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' 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.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

Also while USA Airbrush Supply was having their 20% off sale I bought this lil sucker
gallery_87434_11578_388415.jpg

Its a badger paint mixer
Does an awesome job especially on metallics where the pigments have settled out or other paints that have started to dry and you wanna mix some water into thin them back out
Its only 10ish? bucks I definitely recommend it :)

Glad to see you like the mixer. I'm going to be picking one up shortly when I order some of their stynylrez primer, but I want to wait for it to warm up before I have it shipped. I hear it does not do well if it freezes.

With the new list I'm toying with thanks to Vigilus, I need a MoO

 

I am toying with a few options, there's a couple of VM models that I might use.

Although their current images are so small I can't tell so I've asked for some bigger pictures.

 

The other one is this one from Artel W

Spoiler

 

Although its a bit too Valhallan I think and I won't be able to do a simple head swap because she has a plat on her back. 

 

Another option is Anvil Minatures does do some epaulets, which would let me convert some more Cadian esque models to something I could use

I always liked VM's epaulets, they fit GW models much better: https://victoriamini...shoulder-boards

I'm assuming VM is Victoria Miniatures? I'm looking at their site because I like their bayonets still for my Marines and I'm seeing if they have any good head swaps for scouts. While looking I saw this promo, not sure if it would work and if there's $50 worth of stuff you want from them?

There's always $50 worth of stuff to order from Victoria Minatures I can't recommend her enough...that female commissar is seriously smashing. She 100% made my Savlar Chem Dogs a complete reality

Depending on where you are it's worth bearing in mind you might get stung on Customs when ordering Victoria Minis. So factor that in if you do get some - they are wonderful models!

Fortunately no import duties here... for now... :)

Was testing out my new W&N S7 brushes on the weekend during the crazy 9" of snow we had. Im sold... as long as they last longer than my GW ones that is
For my test model I worked on my Artel W commissar

This is what I tried first
gallery_87434_11578_109280.jpg

So I played a bit more
gallery_87434_11578_300987.jpg

Still wasn't convinced so she took a bath.
Given she has a lot going on model wise I might just stick to traditional Commissar colours


Meanwhile ... soon... :D

I've got a series 7 that is my workhorse. Every now and then a hair will be unruly but a quick slice with the hobby knife takes care of the problem and ensures the other bristles stay on point and do their job.

The Commissar is well done. Are those twin multi-meltas on the superheavy tank's sponsons, or twin heavy flamers?

That's a great model! I get what you mean, it looked more like an officer than a commissar. I'm very traditional when it comes to commissar colours I think teehee.gif

Damn that thing looks great.

 

Serious question: are the treads done? The tank looks amazing but the treads look unfinished. The rivets, the gun, the sensors... everything! But the dreads look like they need something more IMO.

The white on your SS is lovely and crisp! I love the rivets as well and the gold cannon - any tips for the shade around the rivets since on my Leman Russes they never look as good. I also think that the treads could do with a little extra, maybe paint the wings on each side of each track to match with the cannon? But otherwise its amazing!

 

Name?
