I might as well start a new thread for these guys since I've been painted a bit more lately. That way I don't need to start a new one every time I finish a new model. 

 

First up is a finished sergeant for my Vanguard Veterans.

I was going for a TMM effect on the sword. It was my first time doing it, since I usually use a much dingier metallic look. I find blending with a wash somewhat difficult. I doubt it's something I'll use very often, but I definitely need to practice it more. 

 

C&C are welcome, as always.

The left pauldron's battle damage is really awesome , I'm guessing the crack at the top is also painted but it looks very real.

Thanks! I've been adding a bit of nuln oil in the bigger scratches and dents to add just a bit of variation and depth. Still playing with the best ways to do all this.

Ooooh that green and bone are lovely together. Really like the scheme all round. What it is with Raven Guard successors having different coloured arms though? ;)

Thanks, and yeah, the arms are officially a thing. I guess it's because of the veterans' white arms, right?  

 

I like the look of it so much I'm going to use it for Assault and Devs right arms as well (red and black, respectively), in lieu of squad marking on the shoulder pad. I think it's a great way to show another link to the Raven Guard, myself. For me, the beige/bone arms on vets are a hint at the skin-bleaching effect over time. Maybe this was actually part of RG fluff as well but I don't remember ever hearing it explained that way. 

 

Should make squads really stand out from one another on the battlefield. When I get around to painting your dude, he will really stick out with his red armor and black arms. Can't wait to do it.

I really like the bone color you have on the armor.  What's the recipe, if you don't mind sharing?

I don't mind at all. Fairly simple:

Rakarth Flesh
Slightly thinned Agrax Earthshade
Rakarth to neaten up if needed
Blended highlight to Pallid Wych Flesh
Very thin edge highlight with White Scar.

The scratches are Rhinox hide, with White Scar highlights. The biggest ones have a bit of Nuln Oil in for variation.

I do like the mini, the white stony look of the shield and arms is a good contrast to the green. It also has nice used look with the minor

battle damage and subtle dirt.

 

 

I do have a question though? Wasn`t your chapter supposed to have an meso-american influence/ style.

I would have excpected that he had a darker, slightly yellowish skin-tone. This one looks very pale.

(It`s not meant as criticism in any way, I was just wondering.)

 

 

P.S.:

Did I tell you that you have one great chapter badge? msn-wink.gif

Haha. Thanks! Yeah, they do have a sort of Aztec / Mayan background. I try to keep the hints subtle, usually. The skin tone has more to do with the gene-seed, though. They're Raven Guard successors, so their skin tone pales over time. They do start out a little darker than a standard caucasian, but these are veterans so they're the palest of the bunch.

Great colour scheme and very well executed battle damage, the only thing that puts me off is the terminator bit on the thruster. It just seems to unbalance the pose slightly, maybe because it is on the same side as the sword,  still doesn't detract from a great mini though.

Ah, yeah I can see that a bit. The shield carries a lot of visual weight, but the sword does as well. Of course, he's magnetized and will be carrying a hammer at least sometimes, and then I think it'll look more in balance.

Truth be told, I made up the backpack separately and I just chose this one because of the longer sergeant's cross. I should have swapped them but at that point it was already glued on.

Thanks for the good point, though.

Okay, update time. I didn't bother posting WIP pics on here, but I did do a couple blog posts if you want to see any of the paint recipes I used for the new elements. Name, jungle camo! This is the first time I've ever done camo and I personally like how it turned out. I'll drop the pics here. Hit me up if you have any questions or comments at all. :D

A couple of those are blurry. I'm sorry about that. I didn't notice until later. 

 

I did take some closer pics of the sergeant, though.

Pretty pleased with the camo pattern, the 'new' style of face paint (to look more like smeared ash) and the decals. These are definitely quick and dirty, closer to a tabletop standard, but hey at least I finished a full squad for once.

If those scouts are only tabletop quality I'm either in trouble or don't understand what tabletop standard are.

Thanks! Haha. I used all the same recipes I normally do, but I was trying not to do any blending at all. Just edge highlights, for speed.

Thanks! Yeah, it's a bit of a pain. It will be easier on the other scouts without the full cloaks, which is most of them.

Digging the battle damage on the VanVet, which isn't something I say very often (you know how I feel about battle damage!).

 

And your Scout camo makes my 'camo' cloaks look like ass. My jealousy is the colour of your Marines...
