Laid down the base gray and the big red and bronze portions. far from complete, but its what i knocked out for the day. i want t0 do hazard stripes over the cyclone missile launcher, but without tape idk if i have a steady enough hand. i might just give it a go for the assault cannon powerfist. paint yellow first, then hit the black right? any color i should base the yellow with? i know for bronze, khaki makes the bronze lay down pretty nice, i assume same concept would apply for yellow?

i would like some personal livery on the models, but i still need to think more about it. no painting tomorrow, field day, but i will be thinking about the color of details and liveries. i should be laying down all color by friday, monday will be wash and edge highlight. ill knock out the bases afterwards

Dark gray and dark red armor makes your Terminators look intimidating as hell. I hope to see the completed models soon.

Oh man, that's a nice start already!

 

Go for the stripes mate! On such a small scale, slightly crooked lines won't matter at all. I usually start with a khaki base, like Rakarth flesh, and layer thin coats of Averland sunset on that. I'm paranoid about yellow and white, so i go for about 5 or 6 thin coats. Too many chunky paintjobs at the start of my hobbytime.

 

Do you shading/ highlighting or further gradients after that, it should be a breeze with your foundation of yellow. Correct any crooked lines with a couple of passes of (thinned down) black. Keep a moist brush at hand to wipe away any stray strokes immediatly, it makes it easier to tidy up you yellow if needed.

You're a skilled painter. Hope the hazard stripes and the steel-gray armor won't lead to your Marines being mistaken for Iron Warriors traitors.

Well, to be fair, my scheme was inspired by a 30k iron warriors army I saw a loooong time ago. The original plan was a dark metallic color. After my first attempt, I realized I dont like painting metallic everything. So I went with a flat gray instead.

I don't plan on hazard striped being a common thing, but the art for one of the termies had a hazard striped power fist and I thought it looked cool. So I thought why not? Haha

Heck yeah! That's an awesome start. Make the black stripes a bit larger, and you're good to go on that area.

Since you have a super bright area next to a super dark area, a 40% yellow area to a 60% black area is visually more appealing. This has the benefit that you can tidy up those lines when you start with a 50/50 ratio.
