I return to 40k after more than 10 years, to find out Cadia was destroyed?! I thought we won the 13th Black Crusade!

 

Can't stand for this, have to muster. Stripping all old Cadians, and repainting them: 

 

Creed Lives!

Here are some "before" pics, for anyone afraid of stripping old minis. Huge money saver (and you don't have to worry about scraping mold lines, already done.)

Great colours, especially on the clean highlighting :tu: How many models do you have to repaint? I repainted my Guard some years ago and once was enough :lol:

Wow. These look great! Super clean. I particularly like how you've done the cloth. The highlighting is so smooth. Any tips?

Also, we definitely won the 13th black crusade. Huge Imperial victory. Cadia stands and creed lives! Didn't want you spreading any misinformation...

Thanks, man!

 

Yeah, the cloth turns out pretty consistent. I use Steel Legion Drab for basecoat, then mix in Zandri Dust for highlight, and very small amounts of vallejo game color bonewhite for top highlights.

 

If you use Steel Legion Drab basecoat, highlight with a mix 1:1: steel and zandri, then pure zandri, then last layer is approximately 2:1 zandri with vallejo bonewhite. Just keep the paint thinned down and layer it slowly up each curve of the cloth (as if you're drybrushing it), and it gets a nice flow to it. 

 

After you highlight, if you need to darken some creases, water down the steel legion drab into a wash and wash tiny amounts into the crevice until it darkens. Used agrax earthshade for hard creases (around pockets, etc).

These are brilliant! Your painting style suits the Kasrkin particularly well! Would you mind sharing your approach to the armour?

Cheers

Been a long time since I saw the classic Kasrkin scheme, it looks fantastic! The colours are so clean, very fine work indeed :D Though we don't expect anything else from you by now ;)

Thank you, all!

 

Got a few more to churn out this weekend, then we can deploy to Octarius (and show these Orks how to spell commando correctly!)

 

These are brilliant! Your painting style suits the Kasrkin particularly well! Would you mind sharing your approach to the armour?

Cheers

 

So the camo pattern is basically triangles or "broken glass" patterns (about 1-3 triangles/rectangles per armor section) painted with Skrag Brown and with edge trims using Vallejo Game Color Bonewhite. I'd recommend taking your time and portion it out to small sections, like shoulder pads, knee pad, chest plate, and work slowly. 

 

Start with a normal Cadian scheme (khaki fatigue, green armor), have that completed and highlighted, and then paint the Skrag Brown pattern down and trim it with Bonewhite. 

 

Also a good trick: apply your decals to the shoulder pad first, then apply the camo pattern around it.

Wow Vinny!

So clean and smooth!

Will these just be for Octarius, or will you build an army?

I for one would love to see more.

Here is the Kasrkin Sergeant (or what the kids nowadays seem to call: a "Tempestor").

 

Sergeant Vladek, reporting for Kill Team duty.

Thanks! 

 

At this time, focusing on Kill Team 2.0, but I get the feeling I'll probably be doing a Cadian version of the "Veteran Guardsmen" list. Perhaps Kill Team 2.0 might throw in vehicles one day.... perhaps a Sentinel Boss-Battle?
