Default My Angel Army

Hi All this is my Angel Army,

As i go i'll be posting pics to show how i'm getting on,

The first thing i painted was;

Astorath


Yes,I know it is horendous but i had to start somewhere. I'll be stripping this backlater to re-do the whole thing

Next was,

Dante


This was much better in my opinion I'd calmed down with the paint, i'll probably leave this as is as i'm happy with it for the table top (Appart from his axe keeps breaking!)

Next was a Terminator from my newly arived Space hulk (Cheers Ebay)


Not good I know

Next is the Death Company



I loved painting these, i had just got my new brushes so fine detail was in order and as i went, i could see a vast improvement in my work.

Next Furioso


This was fun, however when i make up the next boxed one i think i'll go for Death Company and i will deffinitley paint it pre construction as i know there are quite a few places left out which is a shame(you can only see if you realy look it'lldo for table top), plus my methods are getting better

next was my Assault squad, this isn't finished yet but two models are now done and all there waiting for is some fluffy stuff



Last for now is another one of the terminators from space hulk


I'll be painting thes gradualy as i only want to do them as i feel i have improved greatly since last time and using these as a bench mark is good for me(leaving the better one's till the end)

Any feed back welcome, as i'm always striving to improve

Cheers,

Col

Nice work man, the red looks a bit thick but it could just be the pics.

Default Finished my Chaplin

Finished this guy but i think i need more practice with the black, going to look through a few of the tutorials to get some hints,




With the rounds i decided to add some tracer, give him more of an authentic look, seeming as how he'll be leading my death company eventualy!

Hopefully have more pics up this weekend, as looking to finish the assault squad, and make a start on the sanguinery gaurd (mega paint session comming up)

You show a huge amount of improvement between the first models and that Space Hulk terminator. As far as I'm concerned, it takes guts to post pics of your work and you shouldn't be too hard on yourself.

If I could make one suggestion, it might be to tone down the number of colors you use on the Chaplain. The variety of colors on the purity seals kind of makes sense from a fluff perspective, but it makes the model seem a little too busy, and draws the focus away a little bit. The black also looks glossy, was this intentional? Other than that, it's coming along great, looking forward to seeing more.

Cheers, i was thinking the same with the purity seals, so i'm sticking to one maybe two colours in future, the glossy effect is the GW Gloss Varnish, i'll be getting the Matt this weekend, only to protect the models as i have a very adventures 3Yr old (He can get to anything),

Thankyou though,

Col

Nooooo dont paint on matt varnish.
Use purity seal to protect your minis.
And your improving fast. There is a very obvious difference between your first paint job and your more recent ones. Keep up the good work

"Camouflage is the colour of fear... I have no need to hide from my foes... I have no fear of death. My colours I wear openly, they proclaim louder than any words, "I am proud to live! - I am proud to die!".
