I can see those photos. The models look pretty good, but the focus is slightly off so I can't see the details well.

These look great Dutchy. I would add a wash to the chaplains face and the handle of his crozium however to help give the model a bit more depth. otherwise very nice work. especially liking the splashes of yellow thrown in on them.

Thanks Swede. Hopefully this is better?:

I've also been quite productive and started magnetising a razorback/rhino. This is my first attempt but so far it looks a mess:

Ah, those photos are much better!

The troopers look really nice. Really tastefully done, with just a little subtle weathering. I also like the name banners on the bases that's a very nice touch. And I can attest from many Necromunda games that means models add to the fun.

I think the chaplain might still need some more work. Specially I mean armour highlights.

Right now the edges of the black plates seem to get lost compared to the accordion areas of the joints. Usually I try to highlight the edges of the joint ribbing with gray or white but this is more complicated on an all black model. I want to reserve a suggestion in how to work with those areas . . . Could we see a rear photo of the chaplain? I want to make sure my suggestion fits the whole model.

Thanks both. Attached is the rear, hopefully the photo shows it properly:

I am going to adjust the osl on the jump packs to copy an image I found on the net:

Also I found this old model in collection. I'm not sure what to do with him as his scales a little smaller than the modern models. Maybe a statue? Any suggestions welcome.

Great thanks. So the chaplain could really use another highlight. The black is eating up the detail, at least in the photos.

The vintage sergeant would be great with tac marines, or devastators where the bulk of the weapons would disguise his size difference. Don't forget his current base is much smaller too.

Up to you Dutchy, but I'd go with either Ulthuan grey or Fenrisian grey for an extreme edge highlight, and I'd use a 10/0 or similarly tiny brush to keep the line very thin.

I think your models are looking great mate, and I'm loving the crisp photos that you have going lately.

Thanks guys, I'll add the next highlight. I've been working furiously and have now completed another trooper:

Please note the old school backpack. I've taken the opportunity to go over all the blood drops to make them stand out a little more:

uploadfromtaptalk1427903335171.jpg

I've also partially finished one death company, though his jump pack needs completion. I've changed the basing style slightly on this one and would like to know everyone's thoughts on whether I put this style on the other models:

I've also adjusted my lighting inside the jump packs:

I'm not sure whether to change the wings on the blood angel symbol on all the models from black to white either to make it stand out more like in the death company model above.
