Hello Guys!

I have been a hobbyist for (records expugned from the Administratum by inquisitorial decree) and have been on this forum for almost the same amount of time.In all of these years i've had different threads in different parts of the forum, but trying to keep them attractive to new viewers and getting feedback has been quite difficult, all the more credit to each brother that has given me their thoughts whenever i posted something new of course.

So i was thinking last night that it might be easier to merge my separate armies into one thread, tat way i can update it constantly when i paint something new, because i always work on different things at the time.

 

So, i'd like to start this album with some of the minis i've already painted from different armies.

I hope you like them smile.png

I'll be uploading some of my Orlocks soon, though i still have to paint their bases

med_gallery_49745_16623_286075.jpgmed_gallery_49745_16623_289060.jpg

 

What do you think od this very old school scheme?

Thanks smile.png

I have been working on a conversion i made for Khorne Berzerkers. I painted the minis with a red armour and the idea is to make chipping on them that show the alpha legion colours underneath the red, but i don't know if i should paint them as world eaters or blood angels, as the models are loyalist marines with conversions for older marks and personalized armour

Of course, the carroburg crimson is still drying but you can sort of see the amount of epoxy modifications and kitbashing i did :P

That scheme is a nice idea! I would go with BA, personally. Regarding

Well, I barely could (most of round shapes are modelled by you, right?), which is a good sign because it means that your modelling was effective :).

Cheers!

Thanks :)  Yes, some cables and the round shapes are what i did. also the trim on the chest of the guy in the center of the 2nd row, the chest and stomach cable of the 1st guy in the 1st row too.
I also did 5 more, let me take more pics of all of them and edit them, because the pics my camera takes always seem to be too huge for the B&C gallery

Looking forward to them! If it is of any help, what I do is crop them in my device the most I can and then resize them in Paint (to a 20% of the original size).

Thank you! What i usually do is very simillar but in photoshop, it's just that i'm a lazy guy and my pics set up isn't that good to be honest

 

Here are the pics:

med_gallery_49745_16623_169973.jpg

med_gallery_49745_16623_784076.jpg

 

You can see most of the epoxy stuff is very round, i still have to lear how to sculpt angular shapes better.
I already started marking the black areas and something tells me they look better as Blood Angels. Maybe it's the MK IV marine, i don't know...

 

I also sculpted stuff on my Chaos Lord with the slaaneshi talons and a deformed chaos sorcerer with a "force stave" that looks more like a butcher's maul XD

Nice! Yeah, I think you're better off with BA. Regarding your conversions, looking good! That sorcerer for sure is done with sh*t and wants to bash some heads in.

Hahaha yes, i don't really like magic users in 40k but for chaos they are just sooo good i just had to do one of my own but with a twist XD


On the meantime, i have been looking for alpha legion armies painted in dark blue because the dark turquoise just isn't working for me, so i came across an ultramarine whos blue tones are just puzziling me.
 

884ab33e3b9b37769d180d896033b3d8.jpg

 

How to achieve that kind of blue?
i am trying right now with a kantor blue basecoat and will do some soft drybrush highlights of Alaitoc Blue and see what happens.
I'll upload a pic of that marine as soon as i can

That Ultramarine was painted by our dear Kizzdougs and a tutorial on how to do it was posted in his big thread here on the BnC. Don't know the exact page but its in there.

Thank you mate! I will look for it
However i just finished painting the blue on the test mini and it looks quite nice, but different from ultras blue (a bit more desaturated). It might work but i'll finish it with silvers and whites and make a comparison

Hello everyone

 

So i finished the test mini and it looks quite nice compared to the dull dark turquoise.
I painted it with Kantor Blue and drybrushed alaitoc blue and hoeth blue for highlights, then painted the silver and the gold and did an overall shade of nuln oil.
The freehand is just ulthuan grey with white scars highlights, with some corrections using kantor blue.

What do you guys think?

The XX Legionnaire looks good. How will you decorate his base?

I was a fan of your previous color scheme, but I must say congrats for nailing the color you were looking for! I know the struggle is real regarding these sort of things. It's funny, because in my thread someone mentioned that my NL might end up looking too AL due to the green hue I am going for (looks more eerie than bright red and saturated blue, IMHO), which is a valid concern that I took into account. Here, you have an Alpha Legionaire that could pass as a Night Lord. However, let's be honest, both legions can be represented in a wide spectrum of colors, specially AL! Besides, it's your project, so I'd say you're good. Specially if you keep adding those cool freehand chains and hydra motifs! Or are they transfers? Anyway, well done!

Thanks mate! I don't know because im really bad with bases :/
i was thinking of something simple of grey and white urban rubble and maybe weathering a bit the miniature with paint scratches and dust.

I don't really like the other because it looks so dark and weird, besides i have this artwork in my mind:

5ef4b4c5d20f089a095c46e9de415c73.jpg

 

So maybe i'll change the boltgun a bit :P

The symbols are freehanded with ulthian grey and then highlighted with white scar, but i think i'll change them on future minis to celestra grey and ulthuan grey because it looks too sharp
