Could someone explain the steps for the sponge effect? I like the effect and would like to use it for units and / or HQs that are wearing capes.

Camo cloaks look great! The sponge effect worked really well.

Regarding your bases:

The guys that are sideways because your bases aren't level is driving me crazy. I think it looks wonky. I think they new bases look much more complete and polished than your snow bases but I think they blend in too much with your raptors. I do like the snow that you had because it helped to provide some contrast to your models.

What if you replaced the 'moss' with snow but left the rocks and shrubs? (You're reiver bases are a good candidate) I think the snow would give you the contrast but the shrubbery/rocks would give you some of the woodland theme that matches your camo cloaks.


Thanks alot for your comment! 😀 yeah he will be corrected, he cant stand like that!

Happy you think that way about the bases! Ny thoughts as well. IRL it would be a great thing to blend into ones base, miniatures nit so much. I will do as you suggest because i too think the snow makes the models pop out more!

Of course! This is how i do the scouts! Im basecoating in an appropriate colour (deathworld forest in this case, Dark Grey if i was doing urban camo). Then using a sponge, sponge away most of the paint on a tissue then sponge rather big random shapes on cape. Next colour is ogryn camo, do the same thing but not as big splotches and i try to make the green sploches cover a bit of the Brown. Last of all a coat of camoshade ✌🏼

All those bolters and pouches/tacticool gear, I'd definitely say Raptors. Give me a week, and I'll have some painted examples ready.

You need to put something dead under that guy on the left. He looks like he's staring down at an enemy he just wasted and insulting it's mother.

😀 you are 100% right! I need to do that!

They are mighty fun to paint. I need to put silencers on the bolters as well.

I wasn't a fan of the Infiltrator helmets .... until now. Yeah those things rock.

Are those Scout sniper rifles you're using for suppressors? Looks great.

The Marines are well-painted, with well-decorated bases.

Edited by Bjorn Firewalker, Today, 02:33 AM.

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.
