I don't drybrush but do something in-between (sorry, I'm not up with the technical terms).  For these, I took a small, flatter head brush and loaded it very lightly.  Just lightly brush the raised parts and smear with your finger if it goes on too heavy.  I don't really drybrush - ends up too chalky - this way is pretty fast for me

Well done.

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

Adding a Militarum Tempestus detachment to the mix.  Just waiting on the chunky tire conversion to show up.  Think I'll go back and add some streaks to the brown section too.

And build some Scions too, of course.

This is looking promising. I thought Scions would look good allied to Skitarii, looks like you're going to show us soon. I'm looking forward to seeing the tire mod for the Taurox too. :)

Which tire conversion did you go with?


Losing 'hope' after 10k years just because of a big warp storm? Doesn't sound like my Blood Angels.

Never had hope to begin with; they had duty, and that was enough.

Hey, I got some of those for my MT, too!  Can't wait to see pics of it finished up.  +1 for the Secret Weapon, though you'll want to be careful to match it up with your overall basing schema.  :)

So I had what I thought was a cool idea. Converting scions with electro priest backpacks and cuffs. Was going to call them Volt Throwers. I tried converting them this morning and yeah, didn't work out . Arms were too wonky and didn't line up with the cuffs.back to the lab.. 😎

That is a pretty sweet idea!  Maybe try cutting and gluing the hands to the existing arms?  You could use some wire to link the backpacks to the zappy hands with a bit of pinning/putty work.

I cut the arms at the elbow and lined up the shapes pretty well - its just where the shoulderpad hits the torso that leaves a big gap and looks awkward.  Would have to fiddle with the backpack a lot too to get good contact with the back and also make the arms look natural.  Cutting my loses now

I know I'm psyched to see what the Taurox wheels look like with SoW's unique paint scheme.  I almost went for the half-track style conversion kit for mine but I thought it a bit "on the nose", as it were.

That looks seriously cool!  <3 It also looks more practical than the stock model too.

I'm a pretty huge fan of the Taurox Punisher Gatling Cannon too . . . 20 S4 shots at BS3+ is no joke!  :)
