Hey great project log
I enjoyed going through every page a lot of inspiration for a fellow Unforgiven.
Could you post hq version of the OSL marine picture?
Also could you please give some explanation on how did you make the gaming board, me and my mates have the same thing planned but no idea what materials to use or paints?
I want to make destroyed district on a deathworld with volcanic ash and lava here and there. So blacks with dark purple highlights for volcanic crystals and black/grey for ground.

Thanks @Stormxlr !

I'll try to get some better pictures up in the weekend, work permitting.
On account of the battle board, I built it using this guide:
http://www.coolminiornot.com/article...odular-terrain

It is quite brilliant and really takes you by the hand on how to build it.
The only real thing I deviated from is the colour scheme which was kinda inspired by this thread on dakkadakka:
http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum...og/308095.page

Hope that helps!

@Matcap
Wow mate, you dont even know how much help that was! This 2 links are golden I was looking for a good guide on how to make a proper gaming board with inbuilt terrain but couldnt find one that was worth a damn. This ones are amazing though.

I will be starting my own project log in few weeks when I get back to uni. Wait for scratch built DA vehicle pool (already started) and perhaps even a Thunderhawk in a few.

@Stormxlr

Great! I always need more project logs to keep me inspired and motivated to keep my own going

Quick update in between work (gonna have to pay for those imperial knights somehow):
Experimenting with zenithal highlighting on this guy, it works but I really need to keep it dark enough so I don't turn them into salamanders

It's clearly not Salamanders, fantastic job! Out of interest, as a Pre Heresy Marine, is there a particular reason why he's wearing the green, but not the black of the Legion pre Heresy?

Thanks!
Well I love the pre heresy models, however I wanted a bit more variety to it than a black pre heresy marines army which I think ravenguard/iron hands do better at the moment. So I decided to situate my army during the great scouring with ravenwing and deathwing still in black and the rest of the legion having repainted to the dark green armour we know and love.

Also keeps the look fluffy when I play either 30k or 40k

Still undecided if they are pre or post destruction of Caliban though...

Great looking marine! Love the green you got there. How did you manage to do a highlight like this?
I have one problem with it though... Where the hell are the high res pictures ? No seriously we need those mate, great stuff in here and I want to see them in all the splendor on a fullscreen!

Do you use DA in 30k?

Thanks again guys, I know I should get some sort of decent photo shoot set up, but I'm swamped at the moment. The green is just alot of feathering and a bit of wet blending, starting with a very dark green and working up towards the light.

As I have a the attention span of a chipmunk, here is another little project. I loved the Librarian that came with the DV box but thought his sword arm was in an odd position so I kitbashed/sculpted him a new sword + arm. It's the first time I have done a bit of basic sculpting and I'm quite pleased with it. Especially happy I managed to perserve the original shoulder pad.
