Default Catachan Regiment II Fluff Army: Running with the Devils!

Well I'm coming back after almost 20 years away from the game. I ordered a 1500 point full Catachan Army, yes an unopened old one with the cigar smoking LTs, and expect it any day now. I started getting back into the swing of things painting a HQ to try and find a paint scheme other than camo. I've decided on Black base with Blood Red highlights. I feel the Devils deserve something special but will still be keeping to the story line including Straken, Nork, and Harker in every Army I can afford. I'll be updating this as I go and would love feedback on the paint scheme and overall building of the regiment. I've only been on the forum for a couple days but I remember why I loved this game so much so long ago. Check out a practice paint scheme and let me know what you think.

Only thing I have really worked on is the uniform, his face will not look like Jersey Shore when I dry brush it!

As TSOH says nice start, really digging the deep red, are you going to go with a deep red on the base as well?

Not sure about the bases right now, but the more I paint the better ideas I have so you never know. Probably go junglescape though.

Oh those sentinels give me a warm fuzzy feeling! Give this a read through to help post pictures: https://www.heresy-online.net/forums/...ead.php?t=5886

Basically you need to wrap images around it which is the button in the post box between the little image of earth with the chain and the speech bubble.

Oh and I happened to pick up a Hellhound, which I believe would be the only true fluffy vehicles Catachan would use, and a Leman Russ, for those times when you just need one (and an excuse to start a DKOK or Steel Legion Regiment but one regiment at a time the wife said)

Default First Models Completed!

Well a lot of my time this week has been playing with a variety of research of camo schemes, really looking at my father's old pictures from Vietnam, searching online, and trying out different techniques on plastic infantry models. I "completed" both my first lieutenant and Leman Russ. The pictures kind of suc because of the lighting and camera (hopefully I'll get a better one for Christmas) but I really like the way they came out. It is a very subtle green highlight on a black base for the troops and a mosaic of hand painting on the Russ.

Nice work on the tank, would love at home in a jungle. Have you considered adding some camo netting to it? The classic LT also looks good, One tip, adding a black wash to those boots will make them look a bit less shiny (unless that is what you were going for).
