I really think that you are an amazing painter unlike me!
from Wookiepelt's daughter
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
I wonder, is there a reason for your bases that way? A theme perhaps?
think its in reference to the planet horus nearly dies on after being wounded by the Anathema (i think thats how its spelled) the ground was made of the dead and decaying.
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.
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
Loving it! nice weathering job on the armor, and those bases alone are worth a +rep
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!
