5tonsledge i will say you make a very crisp red. almost no brush strokes at all on the tanks if any. Even though Red Corsairs are the Pirates of chaos they do have a nice color scheme. + rep for that awesome red. By the way what color did you use for the red. It dosent look like Blood Red

styrofaom04 Next up is my 2nd defiler. I had problems with this on too. I bought this one and another one(not built yet) for about $20 for both. He had done some heavy conversions to both. The body parts where the legs attach to was cut in half to make two 4 legged walking gun platform. Alot of the detail pieces like the the back of the top body cut into pieces(lucky for me he kept all the pieces and his cuts were very clean). So lets just say it took me a while to get Humpty Dumpty back together again (and alot of green stuff). Even if you were to look closely you wouldn't notice the difference

This model unlike that last one all the parts move or rotate. The Heavy flamer is magnetized to switch for the DCCW or a Havac Launcher(both of which are not completed)

The Son of Horus The army's looking quite good! I never much cared for Huron (either as a character or the model... mostly because it looks like he's gesturing to ask for some spare change) but you've done really well with him. I know it's not what I'm supposed to be looking at, but the base on Huron is pretty cool-- the star of chaos works well there.

Anywhoo, onto possible improvements-- your reds are nice and bright, and look quite smooth, but could stand a little depth around the deepest recesses. Have you ever tried to line in the recesses using a dark red? GW Scab Red applied as a glaze might actually add a lot to the models. Your black also could use some definition. A very simple fix might be drybrushing the black areas with Codex Grey a couple times, and then applying a black wash.

All in all though, it's a sharp looking army so far-- keep it up!

Thanks everyone on the C&C. I running out of things to take pictures of

Next up is a defiler that i have mixed feeling about. I bought it on eBay for a good price w/ some other things. The description and the pictures all looked good. But when i received it, it was a mess! The defiler was broken in many places. the CC arm pins were completely broken off. The reaper autocannon was glued on backwards w/ the bullet magazines facing outward. Most of the blades were broken off and the claws were put together in odd position. on top of all that the glue that was used was the plastic glue so that the pieces were melted together

Well it took me a while to get it right. I had to re-pin the CC arm. Cut out the reaper autocannon and the claws very carefully and put it back together again

here is a pic

This is all I have painted so far. I have lots of plans and projects tho. Stay tuned!
