I didn't get much done last week, but I got a bottle of averland sunset and tried out hazard striping.
Yes I like it.

Your Templar looks great, but the striped bolter looks like an Iron Warriors traitor's weapon, and may make your Templar a victim of misidentification and "friendly fire."

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.

Im trying it out from the third edition Cover

Have to compare it to yellow only. Might do stripes on special weapons only

I'm happy that your experiment worked out for for you. The stripes run parallel and that's are even, which isn't something easy to achieve. If I may, I'd say that painting the hazard stripes only on the boltgun receiver/frame and leaving the fore-end/grip bare would produce an even more dramatic and cool-looking effect.

So with my last Knightfall vow completed I am now able to field 1k of Black Templars.

Putting them all up for a group picture was a really nice experience for me. I put up the first squad I painted after getting back into the hobby after 8 years next to my Marshal I finished half an hour ago and I saw progress that I am pleased with in the last few weeks and month.

I may go back and do some squads anew. I may go and repaint all my guns yellow or red. We will see. But for now I can field 1000 points of black armoured zeal and I am happy with how they came out.

Very nice looking crusade and I know that satisfied feeling you speak of. I remember my first 1000 pts, everything looked so grand.

This is one of the great benefits of our hobby, the chance to improve our skills and see the difference. I've known people who have come to the BnC, not knowing what end of the paint brush to hold and after a couple years of continuous painting, getting feedback, and pushing themselves, able to compete and even win painting contests.

 

So keep at it. The changes tend to be subtle and evolving, but tangible.

 

I still have the first model I ever painted for 40K. It's quite humbling. :)

That's a great looking force, Marshal yes.gif

 

Particularly enviable because it is entirely playable! Too often we get lured by the siren song of Leviathan Dreadnoughts or Land Raider Spearheads, and never get around to painting up our rank-and-file. I have found myself fielding 2000 point lists with more vehicles than Crusaders in it, simply because I wanted to use a fully-painted force. Funny, sure, but often impractical. 

 

The Emperor smiles on you diligent attention to detail, Marshal ;)
