Great start man, always nice to see them before they go bad :)

When it comes to basing countless companies work tirelessly to imitate the effects and appearance of good old Mother Nature; you can just use her products!

I have a jar of slightly baked (to remove moisture) earth/soil from out near by park then you simply apply with cheap superglue. You can texture the base with milliput to create some uneven surfaces before the earth is applied.

In addition to that using bark (baked light the soil) it resembles rocks and cliffs perfectly; I've used such techniques on my model here: http://www.coolminiornot.com/351368

I'd also recommend looking at: http://massivevoodoo.blogspot.co.uk/...ith-earth.html

Good luck! :D

That is a very neat idea! I may have try that out.

I paint mine a little darker than your Emperor's Children, but I'm liking how yours are starting out. I'll be watching with eager anticipation, seeing how my fellow Lord Commander shapes up :good:

Awesome look forward to your inisght :).

Update time: http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/04/09/8e5uvyte.jpghttp://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/04/09/y3u5ynuh.jpghttp://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/04/09/negare7u.jpghttp://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/04/09/qyqanysa.jpg

Before starting on my MKIIIs I had to paint up this squad.
This is Julii squad, led by veteran sgt. Hadrian Karaus.
Veterans of murder, the squad stood fast alongside squads Scippio and Cartha in the face of the mega arachnids when their thunder hawks where shot down behind the main enemy line. Despite suffering numerous casualties the Astartes held out for 8 days and 8 nights as wave after wave of beast tore at them. After the mega arachnids had finaly been destroyed by the imperium, recon ships searched the area for the bodies and equipment of the lost squads only to find no trace of the missing astartes. Suddenly like ghost, 10 warriors emerged from the dark tree line beaten and wary but un broken they moved as one. Always armed with the latest weapons and technology, Julii squad is a force to be reckoned with on the battle field. Formed from the remnants of Scippio and cartha, the warriors of Julii never falter in the face of overwhelming odds and have thrice faced their deaths only to return home victorious.

They are a WIP but notice that they have a slight darker scheme to them.http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/04/09/9ugy6uqu.jpg

More to come shortly, plus Sevatar.
Thanks guys :)

That night lord looks terrifying! Are you going to use any FW parts for preheresy or stick to GW? I like how you've got a few open heads in the tac squad it breaks up the unit more

Excellent looking Nightlord. Seriosuly well done. if i have to nitpick i would say get yourself a hobby drill and start drilling out the barrels. It makes an enormous difference.

Terricus 04-09-14 01:50 PM

Barrel drilling is a good idea, I need to get on that. And no I have my forgeworld stuff as the rest of the emperor's children will be iron armor or mkIV. Thanks about the kind words guys! And that is my Sevatar who I use as kharn in 40k, I just wanted to use this tactical squad because I love the new models lol :p not very pre heresyish but one squad won't hurt.
