Yeah, I was planning to try that next after Chris Peach mentioned he does commissars' patent leather boots that way - just black with 'Ardcoat.

 

The main reason I don't want to shade, then drybrush, is that I want the whole thing to be glossy - but I'll experiment with different methods on the last four.

 


I didn't believe I was capable of this when I started doing it, but I'm pleased at how neat (if not exactly perfect) this turned out:

Good job on the pauldron. Is the wearer meant to be a Techmarine (it does look like the AdMech symbol), or a Son of Malice?
Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

Techmarine. The gunner in the Rhino/Predator kit has the Techmarine cog on his shoulderguard. :)

Here's the Predator I mentioned I'd stalled on at the start of the thread:

I'm calling this finished, mainly for the sake of my own sanity. It's been a frustrating but valuable learning experience.

 

At some point I'll think of a name and paint it on the scroll at the front.

Test colour scheme for Space Marines to match my tank:

I realised recently that everything I paint is green and black, with silver or bone tertiary, so I'm not sure I want to continue down this road, but I don't have any better ideas right now.

Thanks! I do like it - but I might need to take a break and paint something completely different.

That's a nice rich green. I'm always keen for a cold colour pallet. The white Bolter is a nice contrasting element that works really well with deep green. Consider white knees, elbows, or helmet, to tie it in with the scheme a bit more.

Having today completed the last figure from my Shadespire core set, I've moved on to a new project:

The scheme is going to be very similar to this old Sorcerer, which I obtained from a kind poster here and used as a test model:

This first Terminator is finished for now:

(click for a larger version)
 
For the weapons, I'm going for "black, but so battered with use that the metal is showing through", with a purple shade on the parts that were always bare metal to show their Warp-touched nature.
 
I might do a pass with Drakenhof Nightshade on the blue armour, since it's lighter than I want, but we'll see.

Nice work, liking the gold you've got there. Will you be sending more Sons to join Chaos in the ETL?

Thanks! The gold is extremely simple: basecoat Balthasar Gold, shade Seraphim Sepia, Gehenna's Gold, fine highlight Auric Armour Gold on rivet and sharp corners, plus details like the eyes on the chest and flames on the pauldrons.

 

I'd love to participate in ETL, but my ADHD means I'm very likely to stall or lose interest for weeks or months at a time, and I'd rather not let the gods down! msn-wink.gif

 

I did end up going over the blue with Drakenhof Nightshade:

Just messing around with some spare Space Marines, painting some successor chapters because I can't afford to buy anything new right now.

I did mention I have ADHD, right? It's not just the fake hobby kind people talk about . . .

 

Anyway, having lost motivation on the Thousand Sons for the time being, I have been working on some Black Legion Raptors and finished the first one tonight:

The Black Legionnaires are looking good, Ascanius. I also really like the scheme you used for your Tyranids. Keep up the good work. :tu:

My Scarab Occult have been "in black and gold reborn", inspired by a) being stalled on painting them in a traditional scheme, B) listening to The Talon of Horus as an audiobook for the first time after having read it two or three times.

 

This first model is not quite finished; I need to finish turning the gem on the belt blue, and obviously base the model!

Nice work on the Black Legion warriors, the Raptor's plasma weapon is looking especially good.

I'm taking a break from my Horus Heresy Legions project to paint up some of the other Mk III Space Marines from Burning of Prospero with the now-discontinued Legion Volkite Calivers from Forge World, which I bought when they went on Last Chance to Buy.

 

(You can still buy the Telerac Pattern Volkite Culverins, which are also great, but I had specifically had my eye on the Legion version with the exposed vanes for some time.)

 

These models are painted in a Mk III version of my nascent Storm Walkers chapter heraldry, which I envision as a nearly-destroyed chapter reinforced with Primaris Space Marines such that Firstborn Astartes like these are now a minority in the chapter.
