I see! Didn't know about the red beeing techmarine colour. My mistake, my xeno scum.

I think that a sniper wearing blue while trying to hide is a stupid and probably dead sniper. I think the scheme fits their more stealthy roll compared to the other marines
That's always been my opinion. While Scouts can look crisp and uniform in Chapter colors, it's somewhat absurd, lol.

I think I see what you were trying now. Perhaps it was just a case of needing a few more steps with the transition of black to grey? Perhaps even a wash to tie it together? Just an idea
Hmm, you might be on to something there, a black wash may tone it down some and tie it in a little better. I think I will try that as soon as the weekend is over. (At work all weekend)

In regards to people gluing the sponsons of a Raider to the back. It's how GW do it. I looked it up and sure enough the Land Raider and LR Crusader on the GW website both have their sponsons to the rear (and these -are- the Studio models at that) whilst the Redeemer, in Salamaders colours (and the model chosen for the 360 degree display) has its sponsons to the front.

From a logical side my brain says 'put the sponsons to the front so your Lascannons don't shoot your own Terminators', my eyes say 'but GW has modelled it like this on their Studio model, shouldn't I do it the same' and gaming side of me is saying 'Well if I put the sponsons at the front, I have an additional inch, compared to if it had been at the back'

The Crusader/Redeemer kit details don't say this, but picture speak louder than words... http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/ca...Id=prod1560025

Back on topic however,

Your Ultramarines are looking fantastic and I look forward to seeing what else you come up with for them mate.
Thatīs where I got the sponsons in the back slots from! I knew I hade seen that somewhere else but could not quite remeber where, thanks! I havent even thought about the gaming side of putting them in the front, now the next one is definitely putting them in fron on the next one

Meldon The patches of grey are the result of me trying out a new technique, itīs a bit more subtle then on the pictures, the flash made them stand out a bit more then they actually do. But I donīt think I will use that on any more models as it didenīt turn out quite as I wanted it to sadly...
09-01-12 03:40 AM
Vereor Your highlighting is brilliant. This is one of the few times i've seen something bright in 40k and actually liked it.

Stormtalon looks great.

The chaplain is, like most of your mini's, very clean but whats up with the big patches of grey? Is it supposed to be environmental lighting catching the armour or what?

Meldon Time for a uppdate I feel.

I have been workin on just 2 models lately, but one of them is a bit bigger then the usual inf so it should count for atleast 5-6 of them
First up is my contribution to the army painting challange of August, I did a Chaplain with a jumppack this month, I really like the model and I love chaplains on the battlefield. More of these will show up in the future

The reason that there is no text on the tabard is that I though this schould be a new chaplain, newly risen to his rank. He has therefor not been given the time to add devotional text and personal legends to the tabard. I think he as a whole turned out quite good Heīs very light on diffrent colours and such also, I wanted a more uniform look for him, thats why all the metal is in boltgun, I was thinking about doing some of them in gold, but I think I will leave that for my next chaplain.





Next up is my brand new Stormtalon. another model I love, but in the case of this itīs in part more to battlefield excellence then the model it self, I really like the model, but it was not that fun to paint to be true.





it was a bit hard to get a good picture of the pilot, the clear plastic keept catching the flash a bit too good



A bit of a pic heavy post but I hope you like it.
