So here is the semi-final product. I decided to do some highlighting but it is difficult to see (doesn't help that the camera is ancient!). My line skills are pretty abysmal and didn't really wanna do it but felt I had to, to finish the model. I have done lines with 50:50 scab red and blood red and then extreme highlighting with blood red. I like to hold a model in a natural light condition and pick out the lines that are actually reflecting light, not just every line on the model, which might make it look a little weak but I like it
I still have to apply some grass. I have burnt grass although I seem to be missing my scorched grass...
I find when you mix two or even three types of grass you get a more natural look so will have to purchase some tomorrow and finish it off with that!
Meanwhile, my next two models are more recycled ones. I have based both with very watery mechrite red and badab black. The first one I have also started with the the red gore/scab red layers.
This guy is going to look like he is slashing out with his chainsword. Probably would have suited a helmet-less angry face but meh, it's done now.
This guy just looks like a dick..... His pose is quite challenging although the picture doesn't show it very well. Might keep it, might not.
And these are the new set. I have gone for the "I'M GONNA SHOOT YOU IN THE FACE!" kind of poses. I didn't want to exhaust two boxes of DC power weapons and they're poses, plus a few ranged weapons doesn't seem like a bad idea... The white stuff in the armpit is just white-tac because they are a bitch to paint with the boltguns in the way and I'm not entirely sure where the last guys gun arm went... I'm thinking of swapping the first guy with a flamer or melta though (suggestions and feedback please?) as the rare and cone nose helmets seem to have blagged those kind of weapons! Might aswell stick to the theme...
(Is it just me or does the guy on the right look either slightly camp or like he's s*&! himself?)
Sorry for the essay again, thanks for reading!
