Thanks @Iraqiel , he has turned out quite nicely. Been thinking about doing the blue gem look down the front loincloth lookin' thing as well, might have to next time I have my blue paints out.

....oh, they're out are they?

@Swede , yeah I get you. As soon as I typed it I felt like it was a bad idea.

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

Particle shredder complete.



Three Wraiths (black and silver done), five Lychguard (based black), and two more Scarab bases to concoct and I'm at 2k.

That's pretty exciting for me as I haven't had an army this big painted since the mid 90's.

Wow, both your Blood Angel and Necron armies are looking very sharp, Ntaw! I always found the sheer amount of highlights on more recent Necron vehicles somewhat intimidating, but you've managed them really well, they're both vibrant and clean. I like them. I am curious about how you repainted the green plastic on the necron warriors' gauss flayers. Could you give some pointers on how you achieved that?

Hey, thanks @Myen'Tal . My recipe for the blue is has changed in application since I painted the Warriors, little smoother now:

-Base with Kantor Blue.
-Light drybrush Ice (Hoeth?) Blue, second layer of drybrushing toward the brighter bits.
-Light drybush of white around the brightest parts followed typically by a bit of pure white at the brightest spot.
-Paint with a very watered down Guilliman Glaze, I keep it really thin for control (a lesson learned as I went) as it gets applied in case I need to adjust the gradient at all (also known as me being sloppy with the blue and white).


...if on the off chance you're asking if the acrylic itself was odd or whatever to paint, I put the green sticks in before priming and it was fine. I could definitely see them being a pain if you didn't spray them first as the watered down paint would slide all over.

Yeah, I also meant to ask that too. Didn't realize that primer could work on them. Thanks for the quick reply!

Wow it's been a while, eh? I sold 70+ BA infantry the other day, I'm now focusing entirely on the 1st Company w. SG and DC accompaniment. Here's where I'm at with the first SG to go past gold:

Ha! Stole your post and put it here so I can more appropriately talk about it. Thanks for the kind words, that Libby is actually a quite old model/paint job. I think I did it somewhere during 6th edition.



As for less detailed minis...well, those are what I sold. Almost a full Battle Company's worth; what I was planning on making into the 5th Company but I was really hating how many reds they were from being painted over the course of several years and paint collections. I'm now focusing entirely on the 1st Company with Death Company and Sanguinary Guard attachments using only fancy BA sculpted models.

@ntaw , what colour did you base coat that S.Gs wings, left shoulder symbol and sword guard with? I'm using a lot of white on my marines and have been struggling to find the right shade of grey to base/shade with, that colour could well be the ticket

I used Rakarth Flesh as the base for my white, next it will get Agrax then Pallid Wych Flesh and a pure white edge highlight. Celestra (or whatever it is) is another option, mine is a warmer brown/white and the Celestrwhatever is a colder blue/white reality.

To show you how much patience I have for painting, here's 5 Sternguard I built today instead of even looking at a brush:
