The scouts in the rubble looks great! If you can spot them. Nice pred aswell!

Good to be green

Thank you all for the kind words, @Iraqiel , I have the minis sitting on slate pieces, that I had sitting in plant pots, really a great material for bases and diaromas. I have used the G.W slate on my minis bases, in my head I want my chapters fortress monastery be located out on some highland plateau that they have scorched and blasted in all directions leaving a bleak and desolate landscape and want to try and reflect that on the models

Sounds like a very grim and forboding battlefield, i look forward to seeing a table like that if you get the chance!

Damn but you're getting good Andy. The snipers are excellent, I strained my eyes trying to make them out in the overhead shot.

On the LR, the hazard stripes on the assault ramp look great. I've always had trouble keeping them even, so much so that I gave up putting them on stuff. The weathering on it looks very realistic. Well done mate. keep it up.

Thank you both for the kind words and the sweet sweet rep (I'm a closet cross dressing rep whore!) Mate the hazards are not great close up to be honest, it was a last minute job last night, a base of tau cept ochre, then drew rough stripes with a pencil, used the old citadel black ink with a fine brush to mark out the black stripes as it goes on easier and neater than black paint, sunburst yellow over the ochre, then very light drybrush with abbadon black and then lead belcher, I'm happy with the result but the weathering and distance make it look better than it is.

So long as it looks good from three feet, it's all good.

Wee plog update, because I have not enough to do,and because I have neglected my plastic crack for way too long! I have a wee shadowsword I'm making up, was gonna be a stormlord but just could not say no to a big barrel cannon (take that as you will)




And because of torealis and veteran sergeant, I'm having a crack at some tall scale marines, I've just lenghtened the legs on a few hacked up and badly stripped marines,sloppy work but just want to test the waters, had a few casualties along the way!!!
