Once again your skills make me feel totally inadequate as a painter. Brilliant scheme, really sets them apart from the normal DA green, and the base is stunning. They could even pass for plague marines if you played as "counts as". Is that a CSM plasma pistol?

Sounds intriguing, do we get to know more or do you have top secret plans afoot?

If you definitely want them to look like sallies then i'd either mix the green with a bit more blue to get a slightly darker look, or keep the green as it is now, but make the backpack and other shoulder pad black.

As i said earlier though, the plasma pistol looks pleasantly fluffy.

Fist, after having seen the model in person it is definitely the pics that are making folks say it isn't dark enough. In person this model is SUBSTANTIALLY darker than the pics show.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

I don't know..., the plasma pistol was just sitting in my bitz box. It could be.

Secret..., Hummm. Not really. I want to do a lot of free hand like I did last year but this time stick to the fluff. There is another element that I am looking to try but it is still untested and definitely staying under my hat for now. Stay tuned

One of these days I'll get the pic's right. Maybe I'll try again because getting an accurate assessment from everyone here is important to me.

I'm taking into account this is a test piece - it's not that the green isn't dark enough, I'd like to see a more dramatic difference between shadows and highlights. This might just be because it's a test piece, but I think it'd help to see darker colours in the recesses - even if it's a watered down Badab or green (Thraka?) wash.

On the green I think that you could get away with a darker shade in the recesses, treat the green like"green fire" if you catch my drift. Did you ever drop that stuff into a bunsen burner at school to get a green flash.......copper something I think?[/QUOTE]

its copper sulfate, Im pretty sure at least (%98)

I like the direction that it is going. The flames are nice but I don't think I would do to many of people might think that they are green Legion of the Damned.

I think the basecoat green is good but I'm not sure about the scorpion green part since it goes towards yellow. I think instead of scorpion green if you went with some snot green and white mixed in it might be interesting kind of like on the salamanders cover.


This would give you more highlight or light source options to go more towards yellow or orangish light coming from the lava base.
