Nice stuff mate.

If the white from the superglue is just a light dusting a rub with a dry (knackered) paint brush might get rid of it for you. I have found this to work on occasion.

I just found this thread, and I wasn't too impressed with the absolutly first modell, but Ive checked through the 9 pages, and you have really evolved your painting and converting tecniques, bravo dude! And you sure do have a thing for blood splatter! XD Haha.

Thanks, I still have to keep myself from trying to rush the models to finish them quickly haha, glad to know I've improved

Here's today's model (which, considering I just said I was trying to NOT rush, I failed miserably at doing), another Mk III Marine. 3 down, 7 to go for the month... aaaand there's only 12 more days, crap.




Hope you enjoy!

Today was very productive indeed! Managed to start and finish up a Mark III and a Mark IV Marine. This is a huge point, as it makes my count of Tacticals 15, which means my first squad is complete!








And because I would be remiss not to post photos of the completed squad, here we go:







Hope you enjoyed! I've got 5 more tacticals to finish for this month (the army painting competition and whatnot) before I move back to some more Contemptors and some Cataphractis.

Got another Mk III Marine started and finished today. Tried a lot more with rust weathering around the metal joints and, as with the Mk IV from the other day, did some literal battle damaging with the trusty ole hobby knife. Hope you enjoy!

Those bases are disgusting.....

And so very fitting for your Sons of Horus!! They make for such a striking combination with the dark armor. That was a heck of a battle those Marines were in. Nice work Boc.

Thanks, mate I was going for a more sweet and cuddly side of grimdark, think I pulled it off nicely

Finished up two models today, woo!





I think I may have gone over the top on his battle damage, taking out chunks that were far too large. The grey outlines to the damage seemed to over power the model a bit, though I adjusted and think the next model's is a little more subtle and less ridiculous. Though I do admit I like the helmet crack with the unlit eye slit, but the body... just too much





Hope you enjoy!

The models look great Boc, very dark and grim, fitting of the Heresy. I wonder, is there a reason for your bases that way? A theme perhaps?
