While I can't fathom your decision to play Ultra Marines, that's a good paint job nonetheless.

I literally live in the fucking Mojave Wasteland, the only thing we're missing here at 29 Palms are the Deathclaws.

I'm not a fan of weathering but I know raw talent when I see it. Nice job!

That's really good, I personally love the weathering, how did you do it if you don't mind me asking?

Me: To be honest im amazed there isn't a chaos god of not revising or at least chaos god of procrastination

MidnightSun: There will be, when enough people do it. Y'know when the Eldar were all engaging in their hedonism and Slaanesh ripped open the Eye of Terror with his creation? Slaanesh will have NOTHING on the God of Procrastination, and his vile minions will carve the galaxy asunder in a thousand year reign of blood.... Tomorrow

I like the idea of showing your first mini's and then your current level of work. Well done on the LR by the way, nice and subtle weathering!

well its very simple process i use 3 colours scorched brown. solar orange. and bolt gun metal..
then i use a small piece of sponge and just dab on the colours...but i alternate the colours to form different stages of rust.

well its just how i do it, and its looks ok
