Thanks Bjorn Firewalker!

 

This evening I've not had a huuge amount of time, but i've done my least favourite part of any model - the decals (seriously, I hate them, ruined two squad markings doing the knees - such an awkward shaped decal for an awkward shaped surface).

Will hopefully be able to matt varnish them all tomorrow and continue with the rest of the painting on the models.

The mk X shoulder pads are actually ever so slightly taller and wider, so they might fit!

I've got one or the large BA sheets forgeworld did with all the successors and two of the GW large sheets with fancy art. Not bothered with the heresy one yet, but may have to soon because it has a few really nice things

Beautifully clean work. I'm constantly in awe of the models you produce, and by Jove do I wish I had an ounce of your technical skill. Been debating what Chapter to delegate the small army of Primaris that I've accumulated, and the Blood Angels are certainly the tempting choice...

I don't think I've ever done decals...and I'm really not looking forward to trying it. sweat.gif

Disclaimer:

If my posts appear rude to you, I apologize. It's not meant to be rude in any way, it's just the way folks are in my country. It's really more about being direct than being rude. I know how it's perceived in the english speaking community and I already try to tone it down but I barely notice when it's too much since it's normal for me.

 

So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

There are lots of good tutorials online for them!

It's basically a case of:

- Paint the area a decal is going to go
- gloss varnish the area
- let the varnish dry (I gave it a few hours)
- cut out the decal, with our chapter symbol I make a point of slicing the decal between the wings, it allows it to conform to the pad easier.
- put water on the decal to loosen it.
- put micro set on the shoulder pad
- use brush with micro set on it to slide decal off decal paper.
- place decal on model, use micro set on brush to position it how you want it.
- remove excess micro set.
- apply micro sol to decal and surrounding area
- leave it for a minute or two.
- use a cotton wool bud (q tip) dipped in micro sol to gently roll over the decal.
- repeat the micro sol steps till the decal is flush to area.
- use dry end of cotton wool bud to remove excess.


Thanks for the kind words Soldier of Dorn! I've never been good with decals so they take me longer than I'd like. But I'm reasonably happy with these. Let me know when you get painting! Would like to see them:)

squad markings for knees!

I remember those now, yeah I cant imagine trying to neatly fit those on... The newer decal sheet has just the symbols, which is pretty cool.

Once I finish the 5 I'm working on, I'll be doing 4 to go with the Anniversary Sergeant I've already done, which makes members for 1st and 2nd squad. I then plan to jump to 5th squad - because I want to try out the white crosses lol

Thanks @DeathbyWes it's much appreciated!

 

Only a small update tonight, my youngest was awake for hours, really didn't like the idea of sleep today apparently. And then I cooked and did normal house related stuff. So by the time i got to sit down and do hobby things I only had an hour or so (and I'm still a slow painter lol).

 

The decal areas have all been given a coat of matt varnish, i base coloured and washed the sergeants helm, picked out a few ports on various legs, painted the grips on the pistols and painted the eye lenses on the helmets...

 

I have to say though, I'm not particularly happy with any of them, not sure if I'm just tired or something, but I don't feel they came out very well - definitely not when compared to the inceptor and hellblaster ones a couple pages back, but anyway... progress! (and i may touch them up tomorrow or something)!

Your Primaris Marines look great!

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

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.

minor update, been a long week with poorly kids.

 

But I sorted the skin on the bare head in the 2nd intercessor squad, areas that are black have been blacked in, bases are painted to the same stage as the first squad (both need rust added and weathering powders).
