As promised
First a look at my Terminators in progress, got a 1000point game this coming Thursday (list build in progress) Hope these boys will be ready



If theres one thing I have to say about those terminators its that doing the red spray over the black spray is way too much paint, lost some details on their chests But its a learning process,



And just because Im insanely happu with the product, here's the Hobby Desk Tidy things I got from back2base-ix



@Lemmy1916 thanks mate. Thanks for the tips, I like your base suggestion, something that will make the red stand out, like white? Or something more mellow like stone.
LOL one of the bases I have done have a rock painted gold. Much like the biker with the L plate, just a small little giggle without trying to be over the top stupid

Speaking of which



Its been touched up since this was taken, fixing some of the issues. This was one of my first models

Since your main color is a bright red and that your painting style is clean an plain, i would suggest a dark color for your bases. White would in my opinion end up adding too much brightness to an already strong visual impact of the model. Personnally, i like painting the band in a different neutral color than the base. My army has a black color scheme and i paint bases with a mid brown (gorthor brown) band and light grey sand (looks like ash). I would suggest for you to chose between some darker browns for the band and as for the sand / flock on the top on the base, something like a dark-blueish grey.

I think the best thing you can do is to get creative on a few spare bases and blue tack some models on it to see how the overall effect is, and then post it here to get feedback if you can't make up your mind. And go with the one you like the most regardless of the advices

I thought the Army Painter sprays were meant to be used by themselves? Check the can, if it says 'primer' then you shouldn't have to go black underneath. If it just says 'paint', well....I'd still give it a try. Also try to do really short bursts (like, a second or two at the most) while spraying so that you can check to see the instant you have complete coverage so as to avoid obscuring detail.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Yup you're 100% correct.

They'd already been primed and in a moment of weakness I decided to be lazy

Oh well, Live and Learn, I will definately NOT be making that mistake with the Devastators that are already primed

I've had some models that have been base coated twice with spray in different colours (even using automotive spray) and still not had that level of detail obscuring.

Can't wait to see those Termies finished! Are you gunna follow through on the blue helmets for devastators, yellow for assault and gold for veterans?

With the exception of theveterans yes.
Vets will be silver most likely.

I definately nneed more practice with the spray, maybe I should go back to spraying then after their semi assembled

This helped me a lot. Actually, pretty much everything on this blog is golden. Some stuff I don't like the final product so much, but the work and reasoning is always sound.

My Sanguinary Guard work in progress.

Early on I decided that I wanted to lean more towards silver than gold with my army, it makes it different than standard but still holds true to the "beautiful" element, well in my eyes atleast.

My original plan for the SG was to mix red and silver for a metallic red look, but it was suggested to my to try a wash instead and when experimenting I liked the look.

So this is the look Im going for, its not exactly smooth yet but that seems to add a little battle damaged look in some ways, Im undecided if I will do more layers of wash or not yet.

The plan to date will be that only Dante will get the full gold treatment (cause he has to)

I am considering keeping the gold death masks but indecided.

Feedback would be great
