I had never thought about using gauze to make ghillie suits...... its looks great on those scouts.

I really like the pred turret with the camera lens & stubbier autcannon

keep up the good work

A wee update for the plog, got me a vehicle laager going on here, to be honest I should be painting up troops and termies but the vehicles are quicker and I need to clear work space!! Used Army Painter Alien Purple spray, very impressed with the product, good even coverage and the paint goes on very well

I'd like to second the love for the turret - cool concept and great execution. I suppose it's not as identifiable as the pred turret but it's unique and looks awesome - that's the main thing!

Some weathering is definetly neede to break up the colours, but the paint job is really solid

Thanks for the kind words folks, @Varakir , weathering will be down the road a bit as my painting is not up to it at the moment, need to do some practicing

Try a test using the sponge method - my weathering is far from top notch but i have been very impressed by the decent results you can get by haphazardly sponging on some dirt

Another wee update of incomplete minis, this is a bunch of terminators that I will be working on, thanks to @bitsandkits and my own stash of terminators I have 10 that have the same body and legs, these will be a "bulking" force all armed with storm bolters and power fists and a couple of chainfists. Heavy weapon and sgts will be different to stand out but I'll individualize these guys with purity seals etc and I have forgeworld shoulder pads.

unfortunately not a plog update but I am working on minis, I promise!! anywhoo a long time ago I was asked to show my snipers in some terrain so while doing some gardening at the behest of "she who must be obeyed" I took a sneeky break to do a wee photo shoot and show the ghillie suits, personally I'm very happy with the result, it is far from perfect but close enough for my level of painting.

a wee airial photo


and a slightly above and side on shot

Mate that is brilliant! Also, that shale looks surpriingly good as table top rocky rubble, i think i will have a look into it...

Inspiring work, and thanks for the update!
