I am thinking not very. I have left the crew doors separate at this stage for that very reason hoping to give me more access. However, you raise a good point for next time!

Strongly encourage it. I really enjoyed doing it!

Thanks. What tamiya stowage are you referring to? I have only seen the refuel kits.

Yes, indeed it is! And with the paint scheme I have chosen I can see it taking some time! I am very hesitant to open the other 40+ still in boxes as I think that would break the painting camels back!

Default 1st Platoon Painting WIP

Evening all,
Thought I would post a quick update on 1st Platoon's paint job.

I have 7 of one section completed and the remaining 13 still in stages of WIP. My painting process is as follows:
  • Undercoat Chaos Black
  • Tunic Adeptus Battlegrey
  • Codex Grey bunny camo layer
  • Spacewolf Grey bunny camo layer
  • Badab wash tunic (light-medium coat)
  • Fortress grey drybrush tunic
  • Bleached bone on armour and rifle
  • Chainmail on metal components (I have also tried drybrushing as the last step)
  • Badab wash whole model (light-medium coat. Less on tunic if heavier in initial wash)
  • Tallarn flesh on skin
  • Ogryn flesh wash on skin
  • Tallarn flesh highlight on skin
  • Codex grey on eagles
  • Kommando khaki highlights on armour and rifle



Layering the bleached bone takes 2-3 thin coats for a nice finish - time consuming and frustrating given the 80 odd infantry still to go. I am starting to consider airbrushing the Adeptus Battlegrey to cut down on time and give a lighter base colour for the bleached bone/skin tones - hopefully cutting down on numbers of coats. I am also considering moving to Vallejo paints for a closer match to my older GW paints and a thinner finish (makes the bleached bone stage easier!). Thoughts/comments/experiences?

Dheneb stone/Ushabti bone is a high pigment base that works really well to undercoat for bleached bone, which may help.

Thanks Iraqiel. Have you found the Ushabti bone needs to be thinned for an even/not claggy coat?

I use a wet pallette so my paint is usually thinned incrementally without my deliberate action. some medium would certainly make it more even if it comes out of the pot though... maybe 1:5 medium to paint to just give it more flow.

Thanks Torealis. Have you had any particular positive/negative experiences with any of the kits?

All positive. Take a look at my plog, the last post I made has my tanks, most of the stowage is Tamiya stuff

How goes progress, sonof47?

I'm doing a small, hard new company as my airmobile combat team. Played two games, lost one due to Cypher's fountain of points (was just using him for fun) and the second I won with a turn six break away - five flyer list at 2000 points, wasn't very strong on the ground but managed to divert enough fire power away to live. My biggest takeaway from these games - Bullgryns are amazing and you want 5.

Greetings Iraqiel!

ALAS! I have been on a war gaming break again unfortunately. I hope to be restarting my addiction next weekend when another major project ends.

Bullgryn noted - I love the models so am trying to integrate them into my fluff - and then get some into the army.

However, my current focus is:
  • Get enough infantry painted to get some games going again
  • Finalise my 3x chimera (mobility section)
  • Redo my list with the new rules (I dare say it won't overly change my actual composition based on fluff but will make the game play army different - eg: No Sgt Bastonne etc)
