SOOOOO. Big update for you guys today
During the break I've gotten a bit more done. To start with we have a Corvus Blackstar!
A close up of the canopy, doesn't look perfect, i was trying to blend slowly from a pale blue to a white but you can still see the colour changing, guess the paint wasn't wet enough to blend properly. Oh well.
And a close up of the base details.
It is also fully magnetized with all the options! This was my first foray into magnetizing and i'm pretty pleased with how it's turned out. The only bits i needed to magnetize though were the missile options and the Auspex/halo-launcher as the assault cannons/lascannons and the hurricane bolters fit snugly into place so they didn't need anything doing to keep them there.
I don't generally paint vehicles so overall i'm pretty please with how it's turned out including the chipping on the front of it. After i finished the Corvus i moved on to the next squad which in this case is another vanguard veterans squad, this time all with storm shields.
Left to right = Black Templars, Iron Talons, Fire Angels
Left to right= Iron Knights, Lamenters
Pretty please with how several of them turned out, the black templars especially. As not all the vanguard legs have space for squad identification i thought it was a good idea to put them on the storm shields instead, but let me know what you think of that. Also went with Green Power Weapons this time which look pretty good, really regret doing red power weapons on the last set of vanguard. I'm really trying with these ones to capture the flavour of each chapter with the model. Here's the usual shoulder pad close ups.
Iron Knights (tilt plate)
Lamenters (This one take AGES but i really like how it turned out)
And last but not least, another Inquisitor has arrived! Say hello to Solomon Lok! I've again tried to go with a different colour scheme to the one he usually has. This one i aimed to make it reasonably dark, starting with a dark blue cloak. I gave him a yellow power sword though for a contrast, which i think I've done pretty well, yellow is a new one for me.
I get that this is a lot to post at once but hey ho. Let me know what you think of all these updates!
