It took me quite a while to figure out what part you messed up, it's barely noticeable to me. The mini is coming along very well, I'm looking forward to seeing it finished, must resist the urge to buy one!

I hope I can sway you to buy one (Wayland Games sell them at reasonable, non-US postage) once I eventually receive the left arm and paint the thing to satisfaction!

Ok. I've been busy with study, but at the end of last month I gathered in hand all the base-coated IG that I had leftover from my second last house move and painted them in one great big hit. Platoon Command Squad and three infantry squads done, completing my Imperial shield apocalypse formation AND coincidentally, most of the light infantry (who aren't heavy weapons) for the Urban defence company of my Battle Force. I also completed 5 more heavy weapons teams, bringing me to... oh no. Only 12/30 required for an Imperial Sword formation. Looks like I've still got some work to do there!

OK. Got a lot done on the Grandmaster... I'm not really happy with his right shoulder pad design... meant to match his pauldron shield and banner. Also not happy with his force weapon blade, but I've only been attempting these on two squads so far (lack of confidence has held me back until now) and I think I'll improve on these with time... I'll be going back over the army and turning all the metallic blades into this blue force weapon style soon.









As I get more and more of these guys done I want more and more to put their gaming table together. Buuuuut as you can see from the backlog post, I'm so far behind construction jobs that I don't think I can start in any sort of clear conscience... sigh.

Looks good to me mate, the freehand on the banner and tabard especially, I envy your skill there. The Force Weapon effect also looks top notch, I take it you have done by hand rather than a AB? In which is case it makes it even better. My only suggestion would be too try to give the gold a bit more depth.

Yup, freehanded the power weapon effect... I start leadbelcher, water down Necron abyss, water down enchanted blue, put on ice blue and then drybrush and lightning in white. I did get an airbrush (el cheapo) in the mail this week, but I haven't tried it out yet.

Gold could definitely improve, right now it's just dheneb stone, gold, earth wash, gold.

I was thinking to improve depth I could perhaps highlight with silver, wash again, layer gold and re-highlight silver... do you think that would work?

Yeah that would do the trick, I would try and darken it a bit as well but that's just me personally.

Well tinkering around listening to lectures, I've base coated some infinity and some paladins and converted this fun bit of hardware:



Based around some leftover ork bitz and what I think was a P51 Mustang that my Fiance's brother donated to me. First Dakkajet for free, hurray!

Into line it goes behind titan bits, infinity figures, guard and paladins.

Now to find something with the rules for it...
