Progress! Namely, the Chapter sybmbol:

Plenty of small mistakes but I'm rather happy with it! :) There's a fluff reason why the neck part isn't black but I'll explain that once the model is 100% ready.

 

Niiiccce!!!!!!  Wait what about your vow?

Very beautiful! smile.png

Nice work, dude! The eye lens looks amazing thumbsup.gif

Looks great, Dos!

 

Thanks, all! And I'm working on my vow, have no fear. ;)

Is it just me Dos or have you come to the same conclusion I have, that the Mk IV helmet looks awesome compared to the later ones?

 

Anyway, Astral Claw looks cracking.  Then again I wouldn't expect any less from you.  Its a pity that one of the more effective and striking colour schemes belongs to a Chapter of filthy traitors that no longer exist.

As ever, clean painting and really inspiring work.

 

However.

 

Is it me, or have I never seen a completed (or near-completed, I know what we hobbyists are like) army of yours...? I would love to see a whole force done to the standard of the above minis.

Hahaha, right where it hurts. tongue.png So far, in my ~10 years of being in this hobby, I have consistently failed to complete more than a single squad of models. That means, in that time, no army! But I'm trying to work towards completing 500 points and I think I've finally found something I'm 100% happy with. smile.png

By the Emperor's nose hairs, it's actually done! ;) Great work, Dos, as always when you paint something it comes out great. I like the fact that you haven't overdone the weathering and it's simply some dust on his legs, looks very good. Is it weathering powder or a light drybrush?

I did a bit of painting today, though I tried something new this time: scenery!

 

gallery_45765_12126_505757.png

 

This was all very experimental for me: drybrushing, washes made up of water and pigments, wiping stuff away with fingers and paper, pure pigments applied with a brush, you name it! All in all, really happy with the result! :)

 

Of course, I couldn't resist taking a picture with the Astral Claw, to see how well the two go together:

 

gallery_45765_12126_342267.png

 

Not bad, if I may say so myself. :D
 

Last but not least, the next Astral Claw is built and ready for his undercoat!

 

gallery_45765_12126_314937.png

 

 

Awesome job, keep up the great work!

 

Thank you!

Haha, I can't believe it either. :P And thank you, it means a lot! I used the 'Aged Rust' weathering powder from Forge World and applied it using a brush.

Dude the mark 4 on mark 7 is mind blowingly cool. I'll have to log that for a certain project that involves ash wastes and green skins.

Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.

Very nice scenery, Dos, very subtle. Too much scenery nowadays overshadows the miniatures, but the sepia coloration works perfectly as a backdrop.

The Astral Claw is looking excellent -- and that is no mean feat on a model that is predominantly silver msn-wink.gif I especially like the blue shoulder pad with the chapter symbol and the way you have managed to connect the model and based with a bit of clever weathering on the leg armour. Very nice! smile.png

I sat down to paint today and decided that advancing with my ETL vow was probably a good idea. A few hours later, the six barricades that will go with my soon-to-be-painted Aegis Defence Line are ready for action!

Painting on the basecoats is a real chore but then things get more interesting when you get to the drybrushing stages, adding pigments, etc. The main problem I had with these was the sheer amount of detail that has to be painted. Unlike the chapel wall piece that I painted last week, these have so many different materials and textures that it takes quite a bit of effort to paint it all.

Anyway, it's done and I can move onto other things. smile.png

Man, I'm gonna say it again. Get a force finished! When it's completed, your work is outstanding. The weathering on the Astral Claw is sublime, not too much but still nice and gritty, and the base is just right. And the terrain matches perfectly. I especially like the ruin.

 

Very keen to see more mate.

I've finally got some time to work on finishing my ETL vow. On the table at the moment is a fully Aegis Defence Line:

I'm going to be a bit crazy and aim for getting them 100% done by tonight. thumbsup.gif

Thank you, Psycho! I must admit that I'm very happy with the terrain, too, especially since it's all very new and experimental for me!

Thanks, Arkhan! Much appreciated! And I'm getting myself organised so that I can have a small force painted by the end of the Summer/beginning of Autumn, so you should see some more 'Claws soon! thumbsup.gif

Distractions such as needing to find a place to live for the next year and other less important stuff mean that I must halt my work now. The sections have all been undercoated and I've managed to fully finish a single small section:

 

gallery_45765_12075_16495.png

 

But hey, a little progress is better than no progress. :) It looks like it might take me all week to get all of the sections painted but I still have time so I'm not too worried.

 

Anyway, thanks for looking! :tu:

You could always move down here.  I am sure our winters aren't too dismiliar.  Summer might be a bit hot though...

 

Looking good so far Dos.  Inspiring me to get some paint on my Aegis Defence Line.  Maybe after the Chapter Master.  Only thing I would suggest is maybe paint some of the round bits on the back as lights/buttons to break up the monotone nature of them.  Other then that full kudos.

Looking for some honest feedback here.

Every time I paint a Space Marine that isn't an Imperial Fist, I get this feeling of guilt that I just can't shake off. Drives me crackers. In the past I've tried to paint Imperial Fists with a black undercoat and that took ages. Not good for an army. So I've gone back to seeing if I could be happy with a white undercoat.
Please note this is a sort of "sketch" where I was trying out various things, both new and old (for me) and did everything quickly. I've also only finished the yellow armour; the rest is basecoated in black... and that's it.

gallery_45765_7614_562258.png

Hidden Content


In addition to a white undercoat, I went straight to a Yriel Yellow basecoat, a custom wash, and plenty of drybrushing instead of my usual layering. The only edge highlighting was done with some Dorn Yellow on various edges.

I think I went a bit crazy with the weathering but it looks good (in my opinion) and shows that combining different techniques (toothbrush splatter/spray, sponge-dabbing, and paintbrush scratches) does work well.

Anyway, all feedback appreciated. :)
