I think the main thing may be that the head is too high. If the neck was shorter I think that would make the proportions look better.

I think you're right, but I'm going to live and learn on this one and check heights a bit more before starting.  I should have definitely dropped it lower!

 

You could always make something akin to scrake mask from killing floor 2. It covers nose partly and mouth fully.

Ooh, that would be good for a surgeon.  I am pretty committed to keeping him bare headed though, I like the contrast to my other three helmeted HQ units that I've made.

 

So, I wanted to fatten him up a bit, so here's the result:

He now reminds me of the heavy from TF2:

From some angles the head height looks okay, from others, not so much.  It's also a bit too far forward I think.

 

The person he really reminds me of is my first manager in a professional setting.  A humongous 6'7" South African who weighed about 150kg.  His head sat pretty high, just like my surgeon and he was of similar proportions :D  I might have to name him after him...

 

I've also had a go at knocking up a Tallyman:

Cranked a bit of work today on a new DP for my army, wanted to go with a plague spewer as well.  I need to get some bigger wings though!

 

Any tips on positioning would be great on this one, I'll take my time and take feedback :D

I waited a few days for some feedback on the big guy, but couldn't resist getting in and finishing him off!

I'm looking forward to spraying some Adeptus Astartes with some Nurgle juice!

I've almost finished my mate's Tau army, just some matt varnish and little bits and pieces to go:

Once I'd finished them I realised I really needed to push the contrast with the airbrush highlights a lot more than I did. It looked really light when I was spraying, but by the time it dried and I oil washed them, it just blended back to not much! Living and learning biggrin.png
 

I've also got my zenithal prime done on my Death Guard HQ:

Thanks dude, I appreciate the encouragement!

Having almost finished my friend's Tau army, another friend needs some assistance with his Hive Fleet Cerberus Tyranid army, so we painted up some tester models together:

I'm also working on some test models for my Primaris Space Wolf force.

I'm really inspired by the finish and colours from some other excellent painters on this site, including:
LutherMax's Raptors (https://www.themight...-space-marines/) and hope to replicate some of his effect and style on them.
Grieux's Space Wolves - http://www.bolterand...ys-of-darkness/
FearPeteySodes Space Wolves - http://www.bolterand...blog/?p=4501788

For first try, I had a go with:
Vallejo Dark Sea Blue
Vallejo French Mirage Blue
Vallejo Pale grey blue
Gloss varnish
Made a Lester Bursley Wash using Gloss Medium instead of matt and brown/black mix and thinned it out


Second go I used a more neutral grey:
MiPuz7r.jpg

Adeptus Battlegrey (base)
German Grey (shade)
Pale Grey Blue (highlight)
Pale Grey Blue/White (highlight)
Base colours
Gloss varnish
Gloss wash 2 drops, 3 water flow improver, 1 drop retarder
(NOTE - this wasn't quite strong enough, I needed to go back with neat wash and edge the shoulder pads. Maybe because of the overspray though?)

Photos are hard with these guys, I need a better setup I think, but I'm keen to hear input. If anyone has advice on how to airbrush lines as neatly as LutherMax I'd love to hear.

Wow, this is an awesome army. That Mortarion looks ridiculously good in particular. Also, those Tyranids make me smile- not just because they're very nicely painted but I remember that scheme from the 3rd edition Tyranid codex!

Good job on the xenos. The Space Wolf looks most promising.

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.
