Jimmy Gunns Crimson Fists, Orks and.............
 
Our fists are red,
Our armour is blue,
If your ugly and green,
We're coming for you.

:P

ha ha. So as promised here is the start of my Crimson Fists.
I've started off with a 6 man tactical squad and their going to be put in a razorback.
The shoulder pads and backpacks are the metal GW ones, I think i'll get some of the forge world stuff soon.

I'm pretty happy with how they turned out, the base coat and wash was done with an airbrush which has been my best buy this year.
(Big thanks to djinn24 for the advice on which one to buy)

The sergeants head and power fist are taken from the assault marine box set.

The best model I think so far is the Ginger guy with his helmet off.
I had a moment of geekspiration and thought it would be funny to have a representation of me.:)
For him I used bits from a few kits and the head was brought off bits and kits

Fantastic start man. I look forward to your future work.

Looking good mate. I really like the guy holding the helmet. Keep up the good work.

Superb depth of colour, and the little details are really crisp.

My only niggle is the highlight around the sergeant's grill which looks very thick; possibly a thin layer of darker blue would blend it back in without losing the highlight.

+rep just for that ditty :)

These are looking great so far, and it's good to see Space Wolves don't have the monopoly on ginger in the 41st millennium :)

I think the edge highlights are looking really good too.

looking forward to seeing some more

cheer's guys.
Dave I see what you mean, now I look at it he looks like one of them catfish that stick to the side of the fish tank.

Quick update been working on a predator just need to add some paint chips and work out a good why to make it look like it's been driven through mud.

any ideas? or shall i just leave it clean with metal chips and scrapes?

Glad you find use of the DC too! I was going to start Crimson Fists, but they weren't gothic enough, so I made my own chapter!

It looks great at the moment so I would not put to much weathering on it.

Instead of mud, I suggest a subtle dirt to represent serfs cleaning as often as possible. A brown wash of the lower quarter would look like there was mud but it had been scrubbed off; if you apply the wash in diagonal lines from the front towards the back and slightly further up the rear guard it will give the impression of cast off from the tracks.

Midge913 02-17-11 03:38 PM

I am with Dave. I am not a huge fan of weathering because I usually think that it is over done. But some weathering powders and washes on the tracks and lower panels of the tank will add some realism. I really like it but some edge highlights wouldn't go amiss. Good work mate.
