Hmm, I rather like the colour that you've got going on there, okonomiyakimarine, dude. The secondary colours do work (interesting transition on those pteruges, looks like they transition from dark cobalt blue to violet. I always wanted to see that transition in marines in general, feels criminally underused as is turquoise. I think the metallic red is good, but a thinned secondary gloss varnish might rally set the colour off as the finish would be different compared to the gold/brass. It shows well on the back because of the angle so it's likely entirely because of the camera angle there. But as the metal trim is so dark, I think it might actually do to hit the highpoints with some brighter golds so it doesn't start to blend with the copper red. What's the basing gonna look like? Just curious.
Altis, that pose is killer. Though clean up can so easily be done in 24 hours (If you're crazy Yeah they are a pain, ain't they?) Is there a straight pin through the feet and ruins? That's a lot smaller diameter base than I used so I'm always just curious and just as easily worried given how much weight got swung when the head is attached. It's looking terrific!
Florida Omegon, thaaaat's what I'm talkin' about my dude! Great Gribbly Scott and some right proper legion troopers in that next batch, it's shaping up awesome.
And thankies Chaoself, I'm pretty happy with how Mal's coming along so far. Just one or two little bits to clean up yet to go. I figured he fit the bill and was recognizable enough... I hope, for a Luna Wolf sort.
And goood eye Status Joe, Absolutely my dude! Yep, nicked one of Bobby G's standards given that the model is still in pieces for me. Ugh, I haven't had a lot of luck with him, only primarch that I haven't enjoyed doing thus far (his 40K version was pretty neat, admittedly). Think I just gotta strip 'em and start over, maybe alongside Magnus who I've got laying around here for a vow, somewhere.
Well, as for me, family decided to come over and interrupt all my time. But I haven't been idle, no, not quite. I've managed to get some more work done.
Gotta clean up some lines around the helmet lenses and bolter barrel rims, and the wheel rims for that matter.
Plasma cannons are basically done. Yeah there's supposed to be feeder lines but I have NEVER had as many issues resin bending those sorts of things as I did here. Tossed a few in a field while quoting Fabius Bile while my ultra-religious extended family was around.... worth it, totally worth it for what I've had to put up with this week. I'll likely add some more plasma canisters in the weapon gap, and I need to clean up the pauldron eyes a bit. They were giving me problems when I had to paint the black over gloss as I'd forgotten about them at first.
Got the second dread kit in and it's nearly done being built. Just letting green stuff dry on the top-most part where I sunk the magnets for the havoc launchers.
