Really like the original terminator. I have a squad or so of those around somewhere that I keep meaning to work on.


My B&C WIP Thread is this one (but more pictures generally end up on the blog).

Brief update: I finished the Goliath cultists.

 

gallery_80057_10843_73011.jpg

 

Also almost done with the Black Legion tester. 

 

gallery_80057_10843_578779.jpg

 

I purchased an icon bearer in the meantime, bringing the squad of veterans up to 7. Means there are 5 more to go. Can't say I'm enjoying painting lots of golden trim on black armour, but, hey, I think the results looks good enough to push through it for a single squad.

Good job on the models.

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.

The Black Legion is done. Well, almost. I've decided to swap the champion's backpack out for one that's a bit more fancier, that came with the icon bearer in the mail. (He'll take the squad up to seven, including the Lord.) It's just been stripped and it'll be a while before it comes on. Until then though: they're done.

I also managed to take a halfway decent picture of Epidemius in my photo box. Finally.

I love the irony of what looks like a racing pennant on the palanquin, also an excellent use of subtle greens with that dirty red. Great work.

Glad it hasn't gone unnoticed. LOL. Thank you. 

 

In the meantime I've made some progress with the second terminator. Most highlights done now, next up: battle damage and weathering. 

 

gallery_80057_10843_113578.jpg

 

A friend had asked me to put together a visual step-by-step tutorial for my Plaguebeares. Interesting challenge, so I gave it a shot. Can't say I found easy to take a series of pictures with white balances similar enough. I'm not arrogant enough to think that somebody would want to replicate my steps, but the series of pictures came out rather nice and somebody might just enjoy it as what it is. IDK. Hence the share.

Love it! I have the same Terminator mini that's been sitting on my desk for years; I should paint him up. My favorite part of your paintjob is the lovely chipping, but the markings on the flamer are a really characterful touch.

Thank you; glad you like him. Took me more practice than I care to admit to get that chipping right. Actually these terminators are just little projects to help me with learning and leveling up, and painting chipping and battle damage was pretty high up the list of things I wanted to achieve.

Beautiful work. Small thing that I noticed is you have semi elaborate bases, but they DONT go over the rim of the base. That I really like! :)
Its, "space wolf," not "Space Wolf," or "SPACE WOLF," or "spacewolf" I'm the only Astartes cool enough to spell his name without capital letters! But if you're feeling decorous, you may add a "THE" in front of it.

Nice to see those classic 'stealers.

 

I like the step-by-step photos of the plaguebearer, I always like it when I can see the painting process of a miniature. Looks like the pictures came out well in terms of balance. Seeing the pics makes me curious to know what colours you used, if you don't mind posting a writeup?

 

Very unusual to see BL with blue as a spot colour, it works very well.

Lovely paintjob, looks like your practicing is going rather well. The chipping and battle damage look fantastic.
Are the markings all decals?

I’m also loving the classic colour scheme you gave the Genestealers.

Apologies for the late replies, wasn't actually expecting replies. LOL

Thank you, glad you like them. I think I started making bases from cork and sand about 5 years ago now and I never looked back. Really simple and works well for me.

Thanks. I really enjoyed the process, but I must say I found it frustratingly difficult to take the pictures in a way to then be able to adjust the white balances near-uniformly across the series. I used Adobe Lightbox for Android. Took me longer than I care to admit and the result is, well, presentable but really not good enough for what it is. Too fiddly. Should be easier with the photobooth I have now, but that's opening another can of worms in itself.

No trouble sharing the write-up since I did one for that friend anyway.

Cheers. It's been a long process of lots of deliberate practice indeed and I'm still learning lots. Very frustrating mostly, but rewarding in the end. The markings are indeed all decals - no way I could possibly free-hand something like that. Don't see myself picking up that skill any time soon. LOL 

 

Currently waiting for the oils to dry on the Genestealers. Then, more oils. Entirely different way of painting, but I'm enjoying it a lot.

Done with those Genestealers! I keep thinking I could have done a bit of a better job on them, but I also need to keep in mind that I have another 47 models in the Space Crusade box, many of which are less forgiving to paint. Need to let go. I think they're good and they certainly taught me a lot. 

 

gallery_80057_10843_45024.jpg

 

gallery_80057_10843_148327.jpg

 

I already had the varnish down and most pigments applied when I had the idea of painting the rims of the bases in a characteristic spot colour, purple for the Genestealers. FIgured that would give them a tabletop-gaming piece look. A lot of fun to paint as well and I'll continue that theme throughout the rest of the box. 

 

Currently planning to pull out the CSM and Androids next, but not confirmed. Not sure where the hobby butterfly takes me next. LOL

Needed a break from Oldhammer and Space Crusade and decided to chip away at the Carnival.

 

Currently struggling with the leader - picture on the left below. I still like the idea and the frame of him, but somehow he's not doing it for me like most of his crew (right). Wondering if it's the size of the clown head on the staff? Too big? Or a wrong sense of motion with the way the dangly bits are sculped? I don't know ... Any C&C would be most appreciated. 

 

gallery_80057_14767_328072.jpg

 

Also the Circus has a new attraction: Elephant man! LOL 

 

gallery_80057_14767_547881.jpg

 

Obviously a most rough WIP, lots of BluTac and not a bit of greenstuff yet. Might be a bit more involved to work the bits together, but no major re-sculpting required. Should be pretty straightforward. I think he'll be the last counts-as poxwalker in the group. Probably.

Loving those vintage terminators, the grimdark vibe of old is strong with them. The subtle, yet extensive damage and weathering ties them nicely to the grimy aesthetic of the setting.
