Keep up the good work.
Thanks!

Also thank you for the tips. The termie looks so thickly painted because it has about 10 bazillion layers of broken white on it to get past the black undercoat... I'm actually thinking of stripping him and his compatriots and starting over in quite a similar way to what you described.

I always undercoat black even when painting white. I use the foundation paints so that I get a well covered layer as they have more pigment in them. Then just follow the colours I mentioned in my post. It's all trial and error really

Right I keep getting bogged down by all sorts of stuff (work, girlfriend.. you name it..) So my painting is going slow as #[email protected]#.

However to keep the thread going here is another picture of the some DA vets (semi finished):


And some guys ready to get primed:


Will try to speed up the painting now :-)

As always any pointers, tips, critiques or even praise are welcome!

And as a quick side note:

Damn the basillica from the Imperial Sector is HUGE!!

Just finished constructing it, now wondering if I'll ever paint it...

A white undercoat works wonders with Deathwing imho. There are a few subtley different ways of going about our beloved first company termies out there, my advice would be find one that suits your, time, skill and most importantly patience level and go with that.

I look forward to more

Thanks for the tips, I have already researched a few options, and tried out one using the zenithal highlightning technique used by the artist who runs the fromthewarp blog. Only problem now is I need to strip my mini's and restart from scratch because I'm losing details if I put any more paint on them.

But expect more to come soon! I struck some gold in a secondhand sale and still have this to paint:

3 Land Raiders (1 crusader/2 regular)
3 Land speeders
2 Razorbacks
1 Predator
15 Tactical marines
8 Devastators
7 Veterans
10 DW termies (after they've been stripped)

Excluding 5 tacticals and 5 termies (from the DV set) I bought this lot for a grand total of... 50 euros.

Right after moving, switching jobs and all sort of non important malarkey another quick update! The DV tac squad is finally finished!



In the background my first CoD building based and almost finished but I don't seem to be able to photograph it right without looking rubbish.

Almost forgot to post pictures of my paint stripping experiment!

Result of the first test run:


Poor marine didn't know what hit 'm.

Second run went a lot better and now my butchered DV Termies are good as new!

After 20 green blokes, time for something different!

Black!



I'm still doubting some details, like the ravenwing logo on the helmet and some other parts but he is coming along quite nicely.

And here we are again!

This time an update on one of the veterans, still WIP, trying some more work with inks and glazes on this one.



And the finalised ravenwing biker:
