Spyros man, your painting is great - I think a recess shade would really take it to th next level, especially on the red BA armour. I use a 50/50 lahmian medium to agrax earthshade, but pure agrax also works. The armour will come alive.

Really nice work here! Very clean painting. I agree with Xenith that some agrax earthshade will add a lot. I really like nuln oil myself, but I think most use agrax for BA like Xenith recommended.

I'm look forward to seeing more :)

Thanks guys. Do you think I can apply shade over the varnish? Never used shade before, I just paint to battle ready level 'cause I paint slowly.

I'm not experienced with varnish but I believe in some cases the varnish will make the shade flow into the recesses better.

Don't wash the whole model, just take a fine brush and paint the shade paint directly into the recesses of the model, armour panel lines, shoulder pad rim etc. I often don't like the look of my red marines until I get the shade stage done, then they just look...ready. more 3d, if that makes sense.

The question is what kind of surface the varnish you use creates. However I believe that shade should still stick to it once dried. Give it a try - only one way to find out :)

The 3rd Tactical Intercessor squad joins the ranks!

I think the banner sits nicely on the sergeant. Head, sword, jousting shield, and banner were enough to change his looks completely.

The assistant squad leader has a hidden chainsword (2nd ed. chainsword) on his belt, so I can use him as a sergeant if I opt to field to entirely different squads. I 've done the same trick with the first Intercessor squad I made.

Sergeant and assistant squad leader are from First Strike, grenadier from multi-part box, and the rest from Dark Imperium and First Strike.

Love the chequered shield! Between the the banner, this vibrant red and green bases, there are some serious old-school vibes in my heart when I see those :)
