Ah... was thinking about doing something like that but never really though much about it as I got too caught up with the painting. But now that you've pointed it out, it is definitely going on the "To Do List"!

What is your plan for the bases?

Rev
Most definite now on the weapon muzzles. Basing-wise, I was gonna get some basing accessories, i.e. small rocks, slates, turf, etc., and wrk out a scheme once I get the whole lot painted up. That way it will all be uniform and look cohesive as a complete unit.

Get a Citadel texture paint so you don't need to mess around with glueing and materials. It's awesome. I would pick a colour that contrasts with your armor, but then again if you plan of doing snow, a darker colour may be best.

I like to do a wash on it. Then dry brush with 1 or 2 lighter tones...3 if you're going for a moss/swamp growth on clay/mud kinda feel. Ex. I got the redish brown clay texture, washed devlan mud, drybrushed 2 midtone greens and a mustard yellow and it looked great.

If you go with slate rock chunks and gravel detailing I prefer to glue them prior to the textured paint. Plan out the placement for easy drybrushing later. I've tried a few ways but I prefer superglue on large slate (Citadel basing kit slate always has a flat surface) and white glue on gravel, flock, sand, etc.

Quick and painless way to knock out bases.
Thanks for the tips. I've already procured some texture paints, Blackfire Earth and Armageddon Dust, and plan to use these in some way together with the basing accessories. All I'll say is watch this space!


Meanwhile... some new bitz arrived in the post today... Woohoo!!!

Very cool. Always enjoy seeing virgin forge world bits.

Another idea popped into my head while reviewing this. I remember seeing a custom commission of Horus a while back. It may have been on this forum by the Den of Imagination studio (Brovatar)....maybe.

Anyway it may have been a Luna Wolves era Horus with mace and wolf pelt on his back. The pelt specifically was made from green stuff to fantastic effect. If you're investing some serious time/resources into your SW, I would recommend picking your warlord HQ and converting it + green stuff pelts. Perhaps as one of the final touches for the army, but would be awesome imo.

I will try to find and post log if I can.

Update: Found it :D Insane work from Brovatar as always

Thanks for the link. Insane indeed! It will be a while before I get my GS sculpting skills up to that level. Actually... need to get me some GS to start playing around and practicing!

Default Sorry but this is a rant!!!

Got soooooo fed-up with the aerosol can constantly losing pressure after only a few minutes of usage causing a sputtering effect on the spray and having to "Re-charge" it by dipping into warm water that I'm am now seconding a mini air compressor that has been lying around the lab doing sod-all for years and reinstating it into ACTIVE duty!!!

There... rant done!

Default Grey Hunter Pack Completed!

Finally... the two packs of Grey Hunters are finished. Yes, yes, there's still the basing to do but that will be done once we've finalised on the overall look of the unit.

The banners are outstanding but that is something that is currently up for discussion whether they are really required/useful or not for the pack units (gaming wise). Will probably get done soon but not a priority item at the moment.

Now to move onto the Long Fangs... shortly followed by the rest of the Thunderwolves, Termis, Razorbacks, Whirlwinds, etc... This will take till end of summer before we start on the opposing Chaos Daemons of Khorne army!!!

Default Long Fangs WIP

This is what's currently occupying the painting desk (as shared with the daughter's High Elves). Slow progress after a week and will be even slower this week as I'm away on business for the next 3 days! Anyhow, here's a pic of the Long Fangs pack for the record...

Default Long Fangs Completed!!!

Finally finished the first team of Long Fangs.

Have some ideas about making the missile launcher a bit more more dynamic with an actual missile exiting the launcher but this still in a concept stage at the moment... will get it done soon.
