My painting continues at a glacial pace, but I've now completed the 10 hellblasters of Squad Imphrius (4th company, 10th squad).

Also put finished up Lt. Paschar- a veteran of the 4th company who underwent the Calgarian Rites after being severely wounded in the recent battles with the Unbound Brethren warband.

As always, thanks for looking, feedback and suggestions for improvement greatly appreciated. Not sure what I'll do next- probably either a squad of Ravenwing bikers or some veterans and command squad members.

Loving all these. The bright blue plasma coils are pure win (if a bit of a positional give-away in night fighting 😜).

Cheers

Hey all- hope everyone is holding up well and staying safe these days.

 

Branched out a bit from infantry to do a squad of 6 bikers from the Wraithwing, the Void Reavers 2nd company. Guess I picked these just in time with the new releases. Sergeant and special weapon arms are all magnetized so I can switch around options down the line. Sorry for the blurry first picture.

 

Members of Squad Xaphon (Wraithwing 5th squad)

At some point I'll paint up a pair of Land Speeders to round out the squad (not a fan of attack bikes).

 

Next up is going to be some characters and company veterans; have plans for entire 4th company command (master, chaplain, apothecary, ancient, champion, + some supporting veterans), as well as the Void Reavers Grand Master of Libraians Pahadron (Ezekiel counts-as). Pledged to paint up Pahadron for the lockdown challenge, using the DV librarian plus a head swap (MkIV head with eyepiece)

med_gallery_68171_15488_345021.jpg

 

Here's also an in-progress pic of the champion, plus storm shields for 3 veterans. Greenstuff will be trimmed, still trying to decide if I like how sword came out, mainly whether to take off the power supply or not.

Finally, to break up painting marines for a bit, I also did a Razorback to serve as Pahadron command vehicle. Pretty happy with how it came out.

Excellent work. Is the Wraithwing the Void Reavers equivalent of a Ravenwing?

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' 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.

Thanks both, and yes, the Wraithwing is the Ravenwing-equivalent 2nd company.

Hey all-

 

Slowed down from lockdown life and some burnout, but found some mojo lately to get some models finished off.

 

First up is Pahadron, the Void Reavers Grand Master of Librarians (Ezekiel counts-as), who I painted up for the lockdown challenge.

med_gallery_68171_15488_9991.jpgmed_gallery_68171_15488_6787.jpgmed_gallery_68171_15488_207620.jpgmed_gallery_68171_15488_148073.jpg

 

I've also painted up some veterans who would serve as his bodyguard/command squad.

gallery_68171_15488_361698.jpg

 

Here's a group shot in front of Pahadron's personal razorback. The last Razorback transport spot is usually occupied by a company champion (coming soon).

gallery_68171_15488_922393.jpg

 

I also pulled together a Land Speeder to go with bikers in earlier post. I'll probably do one more soon to fill out the Wraithwing 5th squad (6 bikers, 2x land speeders- not a fan of assault bikes).

gallery_68171_15488_379695.jpggallery_68171_15488_432545.jpg

 

Next up will be most of the 4th company command members- champion and standard bearer (both basically done), apothecary (in progress), company master, and a techmarine assigned to the company. I also have bits to make a chaplain or interrogation chaplain with jetpack, as well as the new Indomitus Primaris chaplain. Right now I'm trying to decide between painting them to reflect

-that the IC used to the 4th company chaplain, and is now tasked with observing and mentoring the Primaris chaplain

-or the IC is still the assigned 4th company chaplain, and the Primaris chaplain is an support company officer leading Primaris reinforcements from the reserve companies.

In either case, I'm also planning on building a IC in terminator armor.

 

Anyways, thanks as always for looking and feedback, and hope everyone is doing well and staying safe.

Hey all-

 

Continued to struggle with some motivation and burnout, but managed to get a trio of characters for my command squad finished off. No names decided yet, but here are the Void Reavers 4th company ancient, champion, and apothecary. Wasn't sure if the apothecary should have company markings- I'm using the angel w/ scythe as common symbol for the 4th company.

Still feel like my pictures make the models look worse (much smudgier for lack of a better word) than they look to me in real life, but not sure what to do different- does the white vs. desk background matter? Maybe just the difference between what my eyes can see by themselves and what gets revealed by a phone camera.

 

Anyway, will probably try to finish up some more characters/command next- company master, interrogator-chaplain w/ jet pack, Primaris chaplain, and a techmarine in various stages of assembly.

Nice work mate 👍, the green accents really work well with the black, and I like the use of the angel figure with the scythe as the company symbol.

As regards the photos, I've been trying for years to master that particular skill, so you're not on your own. I probably take about 10 pics for every one that's any good and does the models justice.

How are you lighting the photos? The shadows on the white background suggest you might be using the flash on your phone, which in my experience doesn't produce very good results. I have two LED desk lamps which I use for painting, which I can angle down to light up the models I'm taking photos of. I also prefer a plain black background these days, as for me, it seems to produce a more realistic photo than a white one (eg the models look closer to how they do in real life).

The camera you're using is obviously a big factor as well. I actually use my old phone for photographing miniatures rather than my current mobile, simply because it takes a better pic! One piece of advice I can give you is to simply move your phone closer to the model, rather than using the zoom on the camera, as you'll get clearer and better focussed photos.

Best advice I can give is simply to keep trying and not to worry too much about it. At the end of the day this is a hobby for most of us, not a profession. Your models still look great, and they're certainly not the worst photos in the world. Take a look at the photos I posted when I first started my Sword Bearers thread, it's a wonder I got any comments or replies at all back then! 😃

I look forward to seeing your next update!
