Welcome back, brother. The Phalanx salutes one of its most vaunted Captains.

He's looking good, like, really good. Your yellow is absolutely on point, as always, but the weathering is just perfect. I much prefer him to your previous Fist for that exact reason.

 

Look forward to seeing him finished.

For the light of Sol, and the earth of Terra, we stand. For the oaths we made, we stand. For the blood in our veins, we stand.
For the stones laid by our ancestors, we stand. For the days that have passed and the days that shall come, we stand.
For the living and the honour of the dead, we stand.

That's a great and proper Imperial Fist there. Weathering is on the heavier side, but I think it suits him well. For an army, this looks like the proper way to go!

The IF marine looks like he's been in the thick of the fighting, rolling around in the mud and such. Just needs a suitably muddy base (maybe have the impression of a muddy puddle too). He looks pretty good to me :)

 

Also you should feel guilty for not painting more annoyingly yellow coloured marines :P

The first member of Squad Primus, Brother-Sergeant Lachan Syth, is ready for painting at tomorrow's painting session with Lord Thorn (who, by the way, is a filthy heretic).

I'll also try and do a step-by-step tutorial while I paint him. smile.png

 

 

 

You did go a little crazy with the weathering in my opinion, but the yellow looks great.

Thanks! I'm glad that you like the yellow, brother!

Why, thank you. blush.png It means a lot, especially since your own Fists helped get me back on the right track. Glad you like him, too!

 

Not sure he'll ever get finished, but more is on the way!

 

What about your ETL Vow ?

Working on it, good sir! Have no fear!

Not sure about muddy base since it's so very common but perhaps I don't really have the choice, haha. I'll give it some more thought!

 

And yes, that's what the plan is from now on. tongue.png

You go round the Wrekin trying to find "your" Chapter/army, but everyone knows that it is and has always been the Fists msn-wink.gif

I am jealous of that yellow though... laugh.png

Once, a Novice Cantus came to me, troubled and uncertain. A slip of a girl, only a few strides down the eternal path leading her to the Golden Throne. She asked me a question. She asked me how we can ever truly understand what faith is. I told her that there is no coin to measure what we feel in our hearts. There are no scales upon which we might weigh the faith of one woman against another. There is only duty and blood. There are only deeds and words. There is only the service to the God-Emperor, and the price that demands from each Sister can only be known by Him. But know that whatever fears must be faced, whatever hardships endured, that price is forever worth its full cost.

Your back on the Dorn wagon!:):)
Your yellow was an inspiration to me when i first started the fists.
Black undercoat with a grey or white overspray has been my go to. When i do straight white my paint job has that super pop yellow that reminds me of some cartoony stuffs, your yellow is spot on.
Love the mkiii helm on the mkiv plate-
Ibaporeciate your weathering, heavy, without reducing the amount of detail work you've done- the toothbrush splatter is my next trial:)

Regarding the whole muddy bases thing, if you do decide you want to go that route,  I've recently had an idea about that. I haven't tested it out yet, so it might not work, but if it works how I think it will, it will be both cheaper and more effective than my current technique. I'll let you know how it goes.

 

And not completing the last guy? Heresy! I mean, look at him! Aside from some highlights and detail work, he's almost done! It would be a shame to leave him now.

Tonight's progress:

 

gallery_45765_7614_93259.png

 

He looks a bit more lemon-yellow than he actually is but it's not too bad. And it's late so I'm not going to start faffing around trying to tweak the pictures now.

It's pretty easy to do. Will do a tutorial soon!

Thanks, lionofjudah! The secret is to wash the whole model to kill that cartoony yellow that you're talking about. It works a charm.

 

And glad that you'll try something new out! Let me know how it goes. :tu:

Still have to think about those but yeah, definitely let me know how it goes!

 

Yeah, but the weathering is done... Argh. Maybe.

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.

3 Things Brother

1) I miss your Howling Griffon guy. Now with the deathwatch pad you could finish him. Stick a a studded MKVI pad on his left to allow for the reversed icongraphy.
2) Astral Claw? How dare you.
3) Top quality all plog long.

Loving the new Fist. He looks gritty and ready for more. I also like your Astral Claw and I am wondering if you have a basing tutorial or can give out some tips. I really like the base you made for that marine and would like to learn how to make that. I usually just have glue and sand but it looks 'bleh' and I would like something better.

I'm hoping to get all of these segments done by tonight, meaning that I'll only have the quad autocannon turret, three Servitors, and the Techmarine to finish off for my ETL vow to be completed. Might even be able to snag a sneaky second vow, just before the end! msn-wink.gif

Very early WIP but I'm liking him so far. Just need to wait for a Frater's approval to go ahead and get the bits superglue'd.

Anyway, increase in updates to be expected over the coming weeks. :)
