My finished carab Culln for my d.i.y chapter, a little tidying up but overall very pleased, tried to blend on the power sword to give it a glow effect, didnt work so I'll just repaint that standard metal color, and I swill have to sculpt my d.i.y symbol on him, but that can wait for another day.

So do I, this is a mk 4 venerable, I hope I do him justice, I'll magnatize him but for the entry he will have multi melta and c.c.w with flamer, next month may well be a plastic iron clad gathering dust or termies.

Loving the purple. What a great colour!

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

That particular shade is Army Painter Alien Purple, darkened with their purple wash, I have become a fan of their stuff.

Well here he is finished, well sort off, a bit of tidying up, took slightly longer than anticipated due to some repainting. The mechanical parts were painted gun metal and washed with dark tone wash, but I repainted those parts mechanicus standard grey then a couple of coats dark tone, then a very light dry brush of gun metal for (in my opinion) a more "real world" looking finish. The furniture on the multi melta is done in German field green, all the weapons in my army will done this way to give a "real world" feel. As always any comments and criticism welcome, but note I'm kind of at the limit of my ability here!

Very impressed with the scorched metal effect on the multimelta. Looks great.

Cheers mate! I'd love to take credit but it was a quick google search helped me with that result, and it is pure simples, blue wash, purple wash, brown wash, slightly overlapping them.

A little plog up date, started work on the "ghillie" suits for my scout snipers, which I started months ago, no excuses just bone idleness, bad Oldman bad. Anywho, I cut some gauze and tacked it to the shoulders and top of the back, then I distressed it and cut it. I'll add head pieces and more "ghillie" later then thin down some paint which will be absorbed by the gauze and help stick it to the mini.

Edit: previously completed mini far right for comparison.

I quite like those camo cloaks! What did you use for the material?
