Here is the squad Sgt with combi plas and chainsword, just needs based, but I'll do that when the squad is finished. Can't get a good glow effect on the plasma coils to save my life so may just go for the copper coil look later, may also redo the plasma muzzle in a heat distressed metal look, but these are rush jobs on bastardized minis i had ballsed up previously (recycling is good) so pretty happy with the look so far.

Less paint on your brush. There should be almost no white on it, and just build from there after the first layer. Or try it with different colours. Green up to yellow is a bit easier than the blue.

Ah, I see, I started with white, and tried to add washes

Much easier to start with blue and work to white. I start with *smurf blue, then ice blue on the ridges, finally the white, pretty much just on the turn of the coils.



*Not exact names. ��

While paint dries, we shall start assembling, an iron clad, G.W venerable and a regular dread, because I don't have enough to do!

Ah, the rule of three. One is a pushover. Two is a pain. But three becomes a threat that needs to be dealt with. I approve!

Little w.i.p, remember these guys are "salvaged/recycled " marines that have been used to experiment with, so a little rough looking, all the arms are cut and rotated, to bring the arms up to eye level
