Really nice work! How did you paint the hair? I dig your color choice, as I find a blond Mephiston looks somehow strange.


I actually painted the hair at the same time and with the same colors as his face! The difference is the face is layered up with Golden Flesh followed by a few other layers including some turquoise and blues mixed in. While the hair I stopped with the golden flesh and did a few extra layers of the golden flesh on the hair. All of the layers are super thin glazes and it took a bunch of passes.

Colors for the face: Vanilla White, Pink Flesh,Deep Red,Turquoise Blue, Golden Flesh,Prussian Blue. All from a mix of Scale75, Vallejo and Vallejo Artist.

For the most part yes. I just have to mix where they go squad/unit type wise. For example no squads of 10 plasma guns in 40k. . . unless your a primaris. rolleyesclean.gif

I think you can get squads of 4 plasma+combi plasma in veteran squads - 2 of those might be a way to use them in 40k.

Great job on Mephiston! You've really managed to capture the darkness inside him with this heavily shaded face and dark burgundy robes. Well done! :)

Yeah, I have lots of options for vets (I have at least 10 of each special weapon and a large selection of different power weapons). . . but currently a big fat 0 storm shields lol

Thanks! I really do like the way he turned out. I need to suck it up and pull out all my latest BA and get a nice group shot. I do need to fill out my BA with some of the Primaris vehicles though. Currently have none except a single Redemptor dread. I want at least 2 Impulsors, 1 Repulsor and 2 Invictors. That should round out the armory nicely. But that will have to wait until after I finish up my Indomitus box. . .maybe 2 of them if I cant resist the made to order. biggrin.png

 

My current batch of 30ish old marines is coming along nicely. All of the colors are blocked, black is highlighted and metals are done. Just need to run through painting all the eyes and highlighting the armor a little. Then its time for a gloss, transfers and enamels.

Almost done. Just need to let the enamels dry a little longer and then matte coat. I might just finish them all up this afternoon!

Yep, I need some of those new Gladiator tanks! Fingers crossed for a BA variant with twin BUURRRRRTTT cannons!  

 

Edit! They just previewed the twin BUURRRTS!!

 

Edit2: Yeah, going to grab a Repulsor and some Impulsors if the shop I am picking up my Indomitus from has them in stock. biggrin.png

Well, the shop I got my Indomitus from didnt have any tanks in stock so no hovery goodness for me yet.

Anyways, I am building minis like mad (as I suspect many of you are) and trying to decide if I am going to paint the BA first or the Crons. Leaning toward BA right now. =)

Finished the airbrush work on my Indomitus marines plus 5 random plastic sniper scouts I found while rummaging lol. Started blocking in all the black today. They are well on their way to completion! I'll get some WIP pics up tomorrow.

I saved a TON of time by being lazy and not putting transfers on the ground pounders. Only the assault marines got transfers. I figured that I wouldnt actually use the normal on foot guys all that often so why waste the transfers and time. But the assault marines are in every list so they got the extra attention.

Almost ready to do transfers on my Marine side of the Indomitus box! Goal is to be putting transfers on next weekend. These guys are getting ALL the transfers and I am going to have a lot of transfer fun on the little heraldry shields.

So I just took the plunge. . .well not me exactly. . .my 3 old garbage paint job metal dreads did. Right into some 99% iso. I also found a random autocannon arm (resin) and multi melta arm (metal) so they went into the soup too.

Slowly getting the transfers on. I am going all out and most are getting one on each shoulder. So many transfers! Once they are all on I seal them down with several hand coats of gloss. Then its oil pin wash time.
