Looking good, especially the metal.

Thanks Chaeron, Pearson I know that the way I paint metal isn't the most technically "correct" way of non-metallics, but I quite like the way it looks.

Here's an update on the turret:

One pic is too bright, one too dark and there is still plenty to do but I'd appreciate the input on my progress.

Turret is done for the time being, I'll add runes, text etc when I do them over the tank as a whole, so for now this is done, some pics with the flash on, some without, you know the drill until I get the lightbox out.

More progress, got the bulk of the chassis complete now, need to do the bone sections, the lamps around the cupola, finish the eyes and a few more bits.

Anyone got any suggestions for the chapter that the trophy has been taken from?

Also I'm a little unconvinced by my efforts with the blue glow from the engines and wondered if any e had any suggestions? I'm thinking of going over the outer sections of it with some baal red to make it look more blended.

Pictures aren't the best, partly thanks to using the always on flash option on my phone when taking the photos at midnight last night.

Any suggestions?

MaliGn, It's great seeing this project evolve.

I have no suggestions regarding the trophr chapter.

The blue looks fine to me. But if you are concerned about the contrast being too great between the blue engine exhaust and the red hull, then perhaps you could add some more very thinned out (thinned using water and or a matte medium) blue on the red hull. Add it on in very light layers that build up gradually.

Alternately you could "wet blend" thicker layers on by mixing the paint with acrylic retartadant, and "feathering" the blue paint on with a brush. Google "wet blending" for more information.

The pictures look fine to me, but I'm just a layman.

Update tine: more or less finished the chassis, will add, text, iconography etc once the Sponsons are on. Also will go back and do the tracks last. Going to try so e gw texture paints on them I think. Pretty pleased with the way this looks at the moment. Photos with and without the phone flash on.

So heat is causing a delay, however I've been working on the second sponson, what I have found is that working in the heat on a sub assembly is causing the paint to rub off so I bit the bullet and glued both sponsons into place.

Cracking work on your vow, the skulls on the sponson plates are a nice touch.

So yeah, I finished my ETL vow this year, I'm quite happy with how the tank came out, I learned a lot and may need some tweaks to some older projects to bring them in-line.

Any comments and critique would be appreciated.

Fantastic completion, the flames around the base of the exhaust panels look  ace, as do all the modifications you've made across the model.

I've just got back from my local Warhammer store's anniversary (plus the 500 store celebration event) having entered my Predator and Maulerfiend into the vehicle and monster painting competitions respectively. I'm very pleased to say that the Maulerfiend placed third, but the Predator scooped Best Vehicle which netted me this rather nifty framed print:

vowhm8.jpg


I was actually quite surprised to win as there were some strong entries by the time I had entered, and based on where I picked up from some others had pushed the model right into the back of the display cabinet, so I can only imagine the quality of those pieces added later. I missed most of the day, but the feedback I got from the people I got the chance to speak to was that it managed to attract a lot of attention so i'm pretty chuffed. I actually bought the tank itself at the opening event for the store a year ago so it was a nice piece of synchronicity for it to scoop the win.


So to celebrate my victory I picked up a box of blood warriors for a project I have been rather putting off, watch this space as I work on that.
