Midnight, your army is awesome! I mean your BA were great, but your FE are epic! Especially the skin tone on your avatar is remarkable!

Nice army, man. Please keep it coming! :P

Hey thanks guys, I appreciate all the kind comments. Words like 'awesome, amazing and epic' have made me blush :lol: as I only use basic techniques for my painting and feel I have a great deal to improve on; some of my highlighting can certainly be a bit thick and my blending of certain colours could be better. In fact, it is this forum that has helped me further myself more than anything, so I thank you B & C for the motivation! And for new ideas for me to steal :lol:

I especially like the second picture where you've made him look really life like :)

lol and really quite fugly!!

Really nice work, especially on the avatar. Where are the lightning claws from?

they appear to be from the chaos termie lord, well, am i right?

Yep the claws are from the Chaos Termis Lord, I was a bit unsure if they would be too big when I built him but they seem okay I think. I cut them at the elbow and pinned them to power armour arms, though changing the angle of the hands for a "Come get some" look. The cables were chopped and re-attatched to where the Chaos spikes were cut, and guitar wire added were the original cables were. I did try a bit of OSL but looking at the photo's they may require a bit more.

The idea for the pose was taken from the Chaos Raptor Lord ;)

Once again thanks for the comments, helps me keep motivated.

Ludovic

Not really Ludovoc, as the kids have been ill with a virus and kept us up all night for a while, and now I've caught it! So I haven't felt like painting too much, but seeing as you asked so nicely, I did take some photo's as promised when I painted my Death Co. Power Weapon. Tbh an axe probably wasn't the best choice for a tute but ho-hum thats what was next to paint :huh: :-

Power Weapons Midnight Style
Colours used; Skull White, Scorpion Green, Chaos Black

1) Block in the areas of colour. The idea is when the weapon is switched off, the blade is black. When it is on (as all marines should do in a fight!) the the hottest part, ie the white part, is at the centre (axe) or base of the blade (sword/lightning claws), the majority of the blade is green, with the tip black. Thats how I imagine it any way! Picture:-
Posted Image

2) Blend the white to green, the green to black, keeping the paint thin (a golden rule which I tend to forget). As the blade is small, you won't need too many stages (more talented and patient people than me would though :)) :-
Posted Image

3) Edge highlight the black with green, the green with white, blending as necessary. Paint the lightning in green over the black areas. The idea is that you go thinner with each colour leaving the previous on showing:-
Posted Image

4) Paint lightning over the green areas with a 1:1 Skull White:Scorpion Green, and over the pure Scorpion Green lightning:-
Posted Image

5) Paint in the pure Skull White lightning. It is important for it to appear to originate from the power cell discharger/base of blade. Make sure you don't go to mad with the lightning as it won't look like lightning. Add in OSL to suit; a lot of people use airbrushes for this and it generally looks better but I would be too scared - so I dry(ish) brush the raised areas the light would fall on with progressevly lighter colours. Piccy:-
Posted Image

Here you go, all done:-
Posted Image

Posted Image
Looks great on the table top :)

Next up is to redux my Blood Angels Libby into a Flesh Eater, which I have started with the face:-
Posted Image
Unfortunatly the colour looks a little too like my psychic effects, and glowing white/blue eyse certainly didn't work against the skin tone. All in all, a bit too blue with the armour so he has a suitable helmet on order (and a new GK Force Weapon - I'm not happy with how his current one is painted so though may as well change it seeing as he is going in the chop-shop lol). I think I will paint the helm and shoulder pads in red, with bright blue/white glowing eyes.

Apolgies for dodgy photos and spelling as I'm ill!!!!!

Cheers :)

Thanks buddy, hopefully somebody will find it useful!

@ DK2K - I have been seriously lax at painting of late, but I have built a Lemartes counts as, a Dante counts as and a forge world based Honourgaurd toting plasmaguns and maximini jump packs. Reasons for this are two fold, I am switching to more jump orientated play (I prefer it to mech) and my Daughter is teething so the lack of sleep has not helped my mood towards painting lol. With a bit of luck I will get some time to post over the week end seeing as you asked so nicely! I may even finish my libby (he has a shiny new fw helmet and a nemesis warding staff now).

Cheers!

sweet can't wait to see your new stuff. I am also in the no sleep for the (wicked) route too as my 16 month old son takes up my time. plus I'm poor and can't afford paints.

Fantastic tutoiral, thanks so much for adding that. I've tried to do power weapons a few times and the results were never good to me. I really like this stage by stage one though, so I might take the plunge again and give it a go.

As for the lack of sleep, I can sympathise as my 5 month son wakes up several times in the night and is starting to teeth. Good times.

Excellent project. I'm trying to decide if I'll do successor original, BA or something more official like yours. Quite inspiring! One more reason to spend less time painting and more time posturing.

Thanks for the comments guys ;) As promised, here is what I have been up to recently with the infamous Flesh Eaters. No painting recently, just building a few bits and bobs. Most things are still wip, but you get the idea. There are a lot of images of little grey men so for that I apologize.

First up, I would like to say thanks to all who voted fo me in Sword Brethen’s “Challenge Accepted” make yourself, er, challenge. I have been wearing the winners banner in my sig but thought I would post it here for me to look back on. Cheers ;) :) :)

Righto, on to business. Here is my Lemartes counts as; Chaplain Drago "The Harvester of Sorrow":-
Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image
Based on the jump chappy, he is magnetized should I wish to run him as an on foot chappy/reccy. Of course, he has the usual array of trophies/severed heads; yes the Inquisition love us.

Next up is the leader of my 3rd company; Voivode Captain Valek "The Terrible", "Master of Sacrifice":-
Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image
Counts as Dante. His sword is to be replaced by a fancier to live up to its name of the “Spada Lunga”. I think he needs some sort of loin cloth, but I can't find one blowing the right direction. He also needs more greenstuff to his mouth (upper lip/teeth), but he is 90% done. Just how he picked up the monicer "The Terrible" will become apparent when I write his fluff, but suffice to say he is not a very pleasant chap even by Flesh Eater standards! Yes he has a large trophy pole, but I have a good mixed group of enemies at my club so I have to try my best to wind them all up!

Next up we have the notorious "Jaws of Doom". Who??? What??? Take a look at some old RT art work:-
Posted Image
Inspired from this I have a shooty Honourgaurd in (mostly) Forge World Corvus armour. They will have the snarling maw painted as per the art, though I haven't decided whether to stick with plasma or go with meltaguns so the squad is currently on test, though plasma would look better painted.
Noviate needs some sort of eye peice, though I am pretty happy with his pose:-
Posted Image
The next dudes bionic eye is opposite side to the artwork but its all I had :) He needs fangs sculpting. In fact they all need some greenstuff work and some extra purity seals here and there. Here are the rest:-
Posted Image

Posted Image

Finally, some more Death Co. These have magnetized jump packs so they can keep up with Drago. Really happy with the first dude:-
Posted Image

Posted Image

Again, fangs required on pf guy, and a load of trophies/purity seals/green stuff on them all.

So what is next to paint out of all this new stuff? Erm....finish the redux on my Librarian and paint up Sgt. Decan and his squad from page one!!! :) As an aside, I am writnig an Index Astartes for my Flesh Eaters. I may not be any good, but I love a bit of fluff for an army :) so stay tuned. Anyways, c & c encouraged with the new guys, and maybe point me out a loin cloth to fit Valek.

Cheers

Looking forward to seeing those 'jaws of doom' on the honour guard. And you should use green stuff to sculpt a loin cloth for Valek. Check out the GS robes tutorial in the librarian modelling section, page 4. (by Marshall Barbarosa).

Some great looking poses here. Especially like the helmet chop on the Chaplain. I've always wanted to build a mean looking Chaplain. Looking forward to you painting the Jaws of Doom. I'm confident you can do it justice.
Also for the loincloth have you looked at the CSM sprues? I think a chain mail bit would look pretty sweet on him. They are all pretty static but I doubt it would be much work to Gs some flow into it.
The Space Hulk in my warbands backstory is the 'Harvester of Sorrow' as well ;-) 'Tallica fan?

Cheers guys for the comments guys B)

@ Sepsis - Greenstuff tabard? Gah! I may have a go if I draw a blank but my GS over large areas really sucks. Cheers bro.

@ Brother Syth - I hope it is the angle, but I suspect not. Failcast victory! I did try to sort it (chopped and pinned it) I will have a look tonight.

@Bio - Chainmail, now you are talking, nice an brutal looking. And skulls, lots of skulls.....sorry, should join your warband me thinks.....and yep, Metallica ftw :P

Oh and if you think these look terrifying Marshal Sampson, wait until you see my libby. Nomnomnomnomnom!

Thanks again guys ;)

Wow, this is...wow. Entirely unique. I love how you manage to make them feel like Blood Angels, and like Chaos, and also like something completely new in its own right. Your reds are fantastic, as are your conversions, and I cannot wait to see those Jaws of Doom painted up (I'm such a sucker for Rogue Trader stuff... ;))

Fantastic work, keep it up :D

Very cool models. My only problem is the counts-as Dante. He looks wrong. That breastplate looks like it should be on a standing still, regal looking model. Although chain mail and paint would probably fix it. Maybe I'm just being fussy.

As for Janus, we don't know. Since he's a psyker he can't be Loken nor Garro but he's probably one of gents hired by Garro.


well, considering that loken has been crushed by a titan/falling building, survived a virus bomb,, survived a duel with abby, punked lucius the eternal, took a world eater in cc, pwned the 2 marines the WE was with, and then came back to his sanity with a single sentence... i believe that loken will manifest whatever abilites the BL decides to give him.

maybe he is a latent psyker that abilities were brought out by the trauma he suffered in being so awesome. <_<
