I really love that paint scheme! I prefer SWs looking grim and gritty = grimdark colors! Nicely done.

Thanks MaveriK!

This time, a WIP of my first Destroyer squad member, which I envisioned as black armour with legion grey shoulder pads. It's first time I'm doing black armour actually (not counting small pieces like a single power fist on the assault squad sergeant). How do you like it? It is actually Ehis Grey, toned down with a complete wash of watered down Nuln Oil, following ehin grey drybrush of raised aeras and dawnstone/administratum grey highlights.

Awesome assault wolves there. And that destroyer will look just as good I'm certain.

Well, I'm quite satisfied with how the Destroyer came about, this actually is more or less how I imagined them to be. I was thinking initially adding some markings on the armour, however I prefer them being as someone wrote somewhere - not part of a pack, but the property of the legion until their penance ends or they die in battle. So only markings are the wolf and the destroyer symbol, nothing more, nothing less.
 
Comments welcome as always!

Space Wolves are badasses that operate just barely within the rules. 13th Co. didn't even know there were rules applying to how badass they could be. DepthCharge on the Space Wolves

I'm so pleased that GW have gone to such great lengths to produce these awesome Space Wolves basing kits. Wraithwing on the Thousand Sons Rubic Marine release

I love the really weathers look that you have going on with them.

 

Do you use a sponge or do you do it by brush? Saw these over on fb too. Simply amazing.

You mean the recipe for the power armour? If you ever use it, shoot a picture and let me know how it went smile.png

Thanks, I use a sponge. The trick is to first do the highlight tone, and after that the dark colour (rhinox hide diluted with lahmian medium in this case). If you do it the other way round, it doesnt work too nicely.

GREAT looking Wolves so far, dude! You have achieved a marvelously gritty finish for them - wow!

Also, thanks for sharing the recipe. May I ask, why the wash of Lahmian Medium? It's just pigment-less paint, so it shouldn't change the colour or texture of the surface, which makes me super curious; why add it? Let us know please! biggrin.png

Thanks!

The Lahmian Medium is very important in this case, as it mats the surface and the following wash of diluted nightshade "sticks" very well to the surface, instead of pooling in recesses. When I first came up with this recipe, I had too little flow control of the wash, making it hard to achieve the proper finish. Discovering the effect of lahmian medium on the pre-wash surface was what made this recipe simple yet effective.

Now you know the secret msn-wink.gif

Aha! So it's to downplay the surface tension so the wash's capillary action is reduced. Nice. I've had the same effect with Vallejo Matt Varnish (which you can get in large bottles) - perhaps that's a cheaper alternative for you? :) 

Keep up the great work on those wolves! :D :tu:

Hmm, the lahmian medium/ matte varnish idea sounds like something I could have done with on my current batch of models, as my diluted washes kept disappearing into the recesses which was a pain.

Hey Guys!

Haven't been posting for a while now, you know, life... Anyyyyway, I have been slowly painting the Armoured Proteus Land Raider, I loved the build since I first saw it, however, it was a monster to assemble. But the painting was a lot of fun, so it evened out ;-)

Any C&C welcome as always!

Next up will be a Deimos Predator Tank. Funny thing, I spent literally months painting the land raider, with motivation spikes here and there, but generally was a very slow progres. But as soon as I finished it, I wanted to speed paint another vehicle to the same paint level, and the predator only took me about 2 weeks. Anyone else had such an experience? I'll post the predator as soon as I have the pics done.
