Hey riddlecakes not sure if you meant to or not but its not really cool to psuedo-hijack a thread by linking up a post like that, good way to get yourself targeted by a mod, im not really sure its against the rules but idoubt someone would appreciate it, and doing it on a mods thread...definately not a wise idea, not trying to be an arse but just one of those respectful things

And models looking awsome wraith, cant wait to see a overall army pic

i have to ask...is there a green paint with that same kind of glow as your blue?
Sure Icedrake. The armour colour is simply mithril silver with very watery washes of Asurmen Blue and Badab Black to get the colour I wanted. If you are looking for a green, just do the same thing using Thraka Green. The thinner the wash, the lighter it will be.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Well i missed a crap ton of pages, I still think the deamon is coming along amazing, But now seeing the Suns squad complete, and all the other projects of yors underway you have literally inspired me to purchase more marines. Not because i need anymore 5k points i think is more then enough but just to customize them. Like your bases are unreal (would really like to know how you did that / what you used) I also loved the shadows and reflections / glare from the lava onto the model, and i belive the glowing light from the eye of the staff onto that particulat model. Again Fenominal work Hats off to you and your Army! Between you and the Fist i would dish a lot of coin to get a paint job on my army from you guys!!! haha (sereously )

Cheers,

Chaosftw

Some further updates. First up, the Oblits have had their armour repainted quickly to match the steel blue. I will also have to update their bases in the future to match the lava bases of the rest of the army.



Here are all the vehicles in their current states. The darker one is the final blue colour and the others have to be brought to match.



Here is a closer pic of the final blue on the vehicles



Finally, I rebased the Tzeentch Prince on a more appropriate looking base. Still have a bit to do on it as the rock needs another highlight layer and I am planning on filling in the middle hole with gs and painting it up to look like lava similar to the other bases of the army. Once that is done I will be painting on lighting effects on the legs of the prince to match.



one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

That Deamon Base is amazing how did u do that? I like the oblits color scheme very unique! I think once the bases are complete to match the rest it will look good. As for the tanks base color, very slick to say the least. I like how it has that shine to it but not to the point where it takes away from the actual model looking forward to seeing how those turn out!

Cheers,

Top stuff with the Daemon there Wraithlord. If you use lava in the middle of the base, will you be OSL'ing the chains and stuff too? One other thing I thought of is the sword - it looks good as it is, don't get me wrong - what if you made look the same as the runes on the base? Again, awesome stuff.

I really like what you have done with your Tsons... but I get the feeling you could do soo much better than than the oblit models shown above.

Syph, you hit it on the head. Yes I will be doing OSL on the chains and legs once the lava is in the middle area. The sword however was deliberately left as a rusty slab of metal for a couple of reasons. First, the rules say it is just a ccw and second, the idea is that he is so powerful that even with what is just a shaped piece of metal he is quite capable of ripping just about anything to shreds.

Vashtek, hehe, those Oblits were painted way back when those models came out. I will eventually repaint them but not for a long time.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?
