Yikes to those Servitors. Grim darkness indeed!

It may or may not pertain to your plight, but have you checked out the new gel paints? I feel like they could make up some cool looking screens and lights and such depending on the colour underneath them.

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

Good god, it's nearly alive already. I'm pretty sure it's illegal to get a superheavy painted this fast. Looking good Iraqiel.

I have not, this I will do. Thanks for the tip!

Thanks Grimzag! Though, nearly alive... it's more like nearly 1/3 alive. Weapons and Legs still to go, they are going to be less detailed but more technically demanding.

Tonight I spent all night painting details on the top of the carapace. Happy with all except the Stygies VIII icon, which if I could do again I'd do full size across the whole shield then half erased under the ruins design. Oh well.

Very nice, hoping to start on mine next year (yes, my back log is immense) going for a simple red and cream/bone split scheme for mine as I won't be able to do something as complicated as yours, must drive you nuts with the starscape, it's worth it though as its looking great so far

The Cream and Red will look excellent, there are a lot of reavers out there with simple but very effective colour schemes.

The starscape is at the point where I am familiar with it enough to be comfortable doing it, but not sick of it yet. Perhaps after this I will need a break from it, but as I have more skitarii to do I don't fancy my chances...

paint is coming out great.
sooo much going on.
really, need to consider a lit display base for this critter.
you could build some miniature can style spot-lights
paint them black and stick white leds in them...
would be a sweet diorama.

Thanks man, definitely considering that but I feel waaaaay too far out from that point to do anything more. With the torso done (less crew) I'll be starting on weapons, then there's still the legs to go (with about 30 pistons) then assembly! No idea what I will do about a base.

Cheers man, it's super easy. I actually did the same technique on a Grey Knight banner a year or two ago, so I felt pretty confident about doing that.

Felt less confident about these screens and panels though. Done, but I am not happy with the reticle on the main screen, I should have done it with a glaze heavy mix to make it more translucent.





I set things up for my next Path to Glory campaign game this weekend as well...

Sadly, my chaos lord was rewarded by Khorne for obliterating a Wolfpriest in the way of being made into a spawn, leaving my band 'leaderless' in so far as any chaos marine can be.

This time, it will be a race through a randomised barrage of fire to capture/rescue this sole Imperial Fist survivor of a shot down thunderhawk!
