I don't know if I'm up for that. I mean...soldering wires I'm unafraid of, I just don't want to open that can of hobby worms until I have more of a separated work space for this.

Thanks, I'm toying with the idea of dropping the heavy support LR and the veteran sergeant upgrades on the tactical squads for two vindicators...but that means buying two vindicators.

Smooth yellow is accomplished by cutting your paints 50:50 with water and painting many coats leaving time to dry in between of course. For that you'll need a couple beers to pass the time. In this instance I took 7 coats because I repainted this from dark red and that's dumb. Bright colours from dark undercoats...well, yeah. Dumb. The Terminator sergeant has one coat of the same yellow from a white basecoat, it's a little blotchy but it will only be one more coat there before I'm happy with it I think. The reason a tank so large might take so many coats as well is because of the large flat areas. It takes me FOREVER to hide my massive dollar store brush strokes on those big flat panels on the LR chassis. As for your last question...no. Not mad...just...a little drunk and obsessed with details like brush strokes.

Totally just Averland at this point. I know it looks dark, but considering the terminator sergeant that I basecoated white is only just brighter...I think it'll come out in the washes. Plus basically all of the vehicles are being re appropriated from my BA army while all of the troops will be coming up from a white base so at least there will be consistency there.

Haven't gotten the sword yet, that will DEFINITELY distract me from painting yellow for a little bit. That Priest is gunna be sooo cool.

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

More shading before I start highlighting? I think so. Gave it a yellow glaze and been working the darkness with a sepia wash. Mind the cat hair on it.





The sides are shaded to a similar darkness, but the pictures have a lot of glare. So far I'm really stoked to get back on that terminator assault squad, yellow is fun!

That yellow glaze is pure gold, in a manner of speaking. The sepia shadows are really effective, it's looking good.

Maybe you can ally in some thunderwolf (thundercat) cavalry to present an excuse for all the cat hair?

Back to painting some Fists! I just finished a Dreadnought for my DA so I went back to this Terminator Captain. Pre-wash pic:



More to come! I should be able to get back to this guy in the next day or so. Stoked to have a model finished finally!

All done with the yellow! This Terminator Sergeant is pretty much done, just gotta base him and fix up his shield...which is a bit ugly for me to post a picture of just yet

shiny I like it mate. Yellow is tough but you're really pulling it off.

Thanks @JAMOB , this was actually my first time trying it through to the end really. I stalled hard on that Land Raider after doing all the washes that I have and it still needs more!! Stupid huge ass tanks...

I have to bust the LCs off two of his squad mates, as I have decided that LCs are lame on Terminators and am going full TH/SS in the squad. Can't wait to see them all done together, but I am slightly concerned that I painted the sergeant first....I feel like I'm going to paint the 3rd-5th models so much cleaner than this one since it was my first go.

Why didn't I experiment on Tactical marines??

I've got the 5 man ML squad assembled, as well as a couple individual Tactical marines together and based white (over the black they were before). Once a new BA dex hits the Rhinos I have painted red may just be converted to Yellow like with the Land Raider, but I'm for sure waiting to see what comes in that new dex.
