Almost done...

So many details I want to clean up! But the desire to bring some Greater Good with this beast is overwhelming! The hex kill markers worked amazing!

 

This has turned out awesomely! Will you be doing the seated Fire Warriors too? 

 

 

Hidden Content

 

The super tuna is really starting to take shape. I can't wait to matte varnish the entire model. I hate the glossy surface but it is essential (any mistake can be easily wiped off!)

 

Man, I have to tell you, grey and yellow work very well together - and also kudos for choosing what is in my opinion the most challenging colour to work with (yellow that is, not grey - biggrin.png)

 

 

I decided to paint the Kroot Shaper first.
 
Next up is Darkstrider then 10 more Kroot, then I've achieved my first vow!!

 

 

Yeay, Kroot! thumbsup.gif Looks great mate: suitably dark and determined! Look fwd for the other 10! smile.png

 

 

NOW THIS IS THE LAST WEEKEND OF THE RECRUITMENT PERIOD - MAKE THE MOST OF IT!

 

 

 

UPDATED TO THIS POINT!

May was a really busy month for me and the family. Having said that, I have no obligations other than completing this PLEDGE! 

Enjoy the updates:

Having an utter blast painting this model tho. Still have to edge highlight all the yellow with yriel and edge highlight all the gray with vallejo cool grey. Then I have to matte varnish all the pieces...... and you all get the picture. I am OCD as a T'au would be.

On a positive note, the Super Tuna is almost done. Should be completed by 6/3/18! 

Enjoy!!

Finally had a chance to make some progress! While I was waiting for arms and backpacks to dry, I got started on one of my Ethereals. Then I kept going cause painting greeblies on Fire Warriors is mind-numbingly boring. So, I experimented with some white and red since I'm going to have a Vior'la detachment of stealth suits.

The colors aren't done yet on the ethereal. I still need to finish getting the white and red more evenly distributed, but I think hes going to be bare chested with some shiny equalizers.

Oh, and I managed to get a coat of green on the optics of the breachers. I'll add more coats later, but the silver undercoat brightens the green nicely so far.

Everyone else is coming along nicely, and welcome to the new blood! Let's keep it up!

Thank you for the kind words Captain, just wait till I’m done with it. I haven’t begun to add the fine details and other colors I plan on using. Since Vay decided to drop a manta, I’ve really got to go above and beyond.....and I love that! Only the best for the ETL!

MithrilForge, every time I take a picture from here on out will have a blue hand in it Hahaha. Since I’m going to matte varnish the entire model when I’m done I ALWAYS wear gloves while handling the model. Anyone who airbrushes will know the horror of true grease.

Just ask JeffJedi what happened when he ate pizza and then touched his models. The horror that unfolded when the Stynylrez left the airbrush and hit the model.....imagine a virus bomb touching skin.

Jud, sfPanzer, Elmo and anyone else who has complimented me I really appreciate it. You all keep the embers going so that the Forge does not go cold!

Keep up the great work everyone!

FOR THE GREATER GOOD!!

Quick update- 

Veeeery WiP of my breacher, trying to work out if grey stripe on helms and red casing on rifles will look ok... Made the Undersuit turquoise to show they're the ethereal's "Royal Guard"

the helmet is practically the only part finished as i wanted to get an idea of how the grey stripe will look ...?

It helps break the helmet from a solid chunk of color into almost a simple but effective and purposful camo.
