Updated: 12/16/2014 - New Scouts and WIP Sternguard and Furioso on page 2!

 

 

I was able to score the new codex with some of the new BA boxes. I made up two 5man RAS by breeding a Death Company box and an Assault Squad box. I intend to convert a Sanguinary Priest for each squad and toss the lot of them in Razorbacks.

This is the Veteran Sergeant of the first squad with a Power Fist, posed to be sprinting over some rubble, leading a charge.

Here is the second Veteran Sergeant. He is posed in more traditionally.

This is my favorite of my new BA so far. Futuristic guns and chainsaw-swords pale in comparison to a good, old fashioned curb stomp!

Various other BA:

Thats it for now. I have an order of BA shoulder pads coming in (hopefully) tomorrow, then I'll start getting some red on them. I'll post the results soon, I'm really eager to see how it turns out on a finished model!

'til then

Looks like you already got your hands on some of the new stuff?

Can't wait to see it painted.

Haha, a local hobby store that I shop at put the Codex, 2 boxes of DC and 1 box of SG up a week or so ago. I was happy to purchase them.

The DC box is such an amazing "Blood Angels bits" package. The majority of the components can be applied to any SM model without any conversion work to make them instantly Blood Angely. The few exceptions are little Death Company "X" markings, which can be easily smoothed over with green stuff.

I am impatiently awaiting tomorrow so I can start painting... assuming my shoulder pads get in, I don't want to start if I can't finish!

Awesome, my BA pads arrived this morning along with some misc. other bits, so I'll be able to show some painting progress on the new BA RAS this weekend.

I'm psyched, so glad to be back.

I had no where near as much time to paint this weekend as I anticipated, but I am almost done painting the army's first new marine, a Sergeant from one of my 5 man Razorback Assault Squads! My pots of yellow paint are dried out, so his hair and shoulder insignia are still white (they will be blonde/yellow!)

I'll also post a pic of what I am considering for a Sanguinary Priest model, though it will still need a narthecium and other Apothecary bits!

First, the Sergeant. Again, lacking any yellow paint for hair and shoulder. Unbased, missing backpack and some final highlighting. 3/4 done.

These are looking gorgeous already. I have a couple of questions for you:

1) What's your recipe for the red?

2) Which set is that caped torso and legs from on your Sang Priest?

2) Which set is that caped torso and legs from on your Sang Priest?

Q



1. The recipe for the red:

- Undercoat black.
- Quick basecoat with slightly watered Mechrite Red.
- 4-5 very watered coats of Blood Red, it will start getting much brighter by coat 3-4, but I keep applying until it is even.
- Shade with a mix of Flesh Wash, Chaos Black and water, 2-1-1 or so.
- Highlight with 1-1 mix of Blazing Orange and Blood Red.
- Highlight with Blazing Orange.

2. The caped torso is from the Dark Angel chapter upgrade set, available for $20 on GW online store. You get 6 torsos and many, many other great bits!

gorgious models :) my favorite one is defenitly the curb stomping one ^_^ you should add him to a bigger "duel" base and make his soon to be victim lying defeated on the floor ^_^ (preferably black legion chaos :evil: ) just a suggestion... :confused:

one last thing btw, is it just me or do all the new BA's bare faces have uber-chins? ;) :huh: :P

They do have uber chins, I found it difficult to get the head positioned how I wanted due to it catching on the lip of the chest plate...

I finally had the opportunity tonight to finish painting my first model. Now that I know what I'm going for, time to sit down and assembly line the other 10!

I'll put up the 2 squads once they're done! <_<

Any c&c welcome.

Double post, but 15 days in between seems fair.

I have finally found the time to finish my two RAS!

First, the two Veteran Sergeants with their shiny new banners:

I wanted simple, heraldic banners on the Sergeants. That and I don't feel comfortable attempting bleeding angel wings, robed depictions of Sanguinius or blood filled grails yet! :lol:

Next, each of the two squads:

All of the parchment has been left blank for now until I brainstorm something interesting to write on them (like on the first Sergeants banner, etc).

As always, and c&c is welcome.

Up next, I have a 10 man Tactical Squad with Plas/ML who will ultimately get a Rhino and be used to grab/hold objectives. Hopefully they won't take me another 3 weeks...

that is simply amazing :D :P :yes: just a question though how do you d the yellow on the helmets.



Thanks for all of the positive feedback, guys! I have the next squad's sergeant built and 1 marine, slooow progress!

I failed to find any creative way to do the yellow, so it's really quite easy:
-undercoat black, live everything else
-slightly watered down coats of Iyaden Darksun foundation until it coats evenly
-about 1:1 coats of water:Golden Yellow, usually 5 or 6 to get consistent coverage
-shade in all of the recesses with Devlan Mud
-pick out highlights with Sunburst Yellow

I was going to highlight further with a Bleached Bone:Sunburst Yellow 1:1 mix, but Sunburst Yellow highlights really well as is, though the pics from my crappy camera don't show it much. And I usually don't find 2-3 highlights needed for regular marines!

Other projects have been consuming my time lately, but I attended the Baltimore Gamesday this weekend, which inspired me to do some Blood Angels work!

Here is my first Sanguinary Priest... he is almost completed, only waiting on finished shoulder pads and some more detail work/highlighting. But there is enough to get the idea!

Posted Image


Next I have a kit bashed Chaplain. I was thinking of using him to lead my Death Company as a Chaplain (as opposed to a Reclusiarch). I'm not in love with him, I think he may look too Chaosy. He is waiting to be properly based.

Posted Image

While I was at Gamesday this weekend, I bought something that I had always wanted. I can't wait to get to work on these...

Posted Image

My apologies for the pictures, I'm trying to use my girlfriend's $500 camera and I clearly fail.

That's all for now, any C&C is always welcome.
