If im wrong then thats just good proof of how the bases capture the imagination of the onlooker :D

The moon of Davin, yea that would make sense. I always imagined it was very nurgley, so green and well swampy, but your description makes sense.

Lol you're freaking 9! I was lucky if I could colour between the lines at that point! Keep up the hobby, you'll be winning Golden Daemons before you know it

You're giving me far too much credit I just liked the bases, thought I could fill them up with blood to make it look very dark, and that was about it haha. Slightly disappointing, I know, though I'll be using the Davin moon rationale from now on. I fail as the fiction guy, I suppose

Thanks, glad to know I'm not overdoing it. The bases really bring the models together nicely, and I'm continually glad I wound up purchasing them.

As for today's update! The 19th marine (aka next to last one until I meet the requirement for this month's Army Painting Challenge Requirements) is yet another Mk III. As the last, he's weathered as hell, rusted, with armour absolutely torn up. I.e., it's been a bad day in the office for our friend, here.




Hope you enjoy!

Here's the last of the Tacticals for now, a Mk IV who, well, has been through the grinder.




Something new, coming soon!

I got the Citadel Water Effect (any water effect would do) and added in Wild Rider Red, Bloodletter glaze, and Abaddon black until it got to the colour that I wanted. I brush it onto the weapons and just pour it into the bases, using the brush to even it out as much as I can.

Hrm... honestly I don't think it would. I'd say through up a question in the painting and modelling subforum asking folks about it. Just seems that since it's a different material it would work much differently.

Not a huge update today, but managed to knock out several hours of work on my second Contemptor (2 to go...). Granted, it isn't a whole lot to look at at the moment, but tomorrow once I finish up the torso it'll look a bit less like the AT-ST that Chewbacca blew up (with the other AT-ST, of course).



Hope you enjoy!

Wow! so disgustingly fantastic! A beautiful army indeed! I bet this army is a sight to behold in person! Keep up the great work!

For Dorn and all who follow him! The battle of Terra will never be forgotten!

Walls fail, fists do not!
